Moving Out of Denial — And Into Our New Earth!

Note:  I wrote and published this article over two years ago, before I started this blog.  I have slightly edited and updated it for current readers. I apologize for its length – but simply could not cut much out, seeing that each part made an essential contribution to the whole.  In any case, I hope you enjoy it; but even more importantly (to me at least), I hope what I share with you below helps you to BE more of Who you truly ARE in this rapidly evolving reality, as we race inexorably into a completely new phase of our Universe’s eternally unfolding Creation. . . .

We live in an age of radical change, chaos in fact, as our Mother Earth accelerates her frequencies towards a shift to a higher dimensional state, a new level of BEing, assimilating the massive waves of cosmic energy that now lovingly bathe our planet.  The collective consciousness of humanity is striving to balance the feminine and masculine, right and left, higher and lower – and it’s a pretty rocky road so far.  Right now, as you read this, there is a psychological and spiritual battle going on of epic proportions for our hearts and minds, and the two primary opposing ‘forces’ are mutually exclusive.  Only one can ‘win’, despite the fact that only one of these philosophies is even fighting.  Add to that the virtually limitless streams of information from the dominant paradigms that all vie for your attention and energy, and the global landscape is definitely getting . . . weird.  And confusing for most, to put it mildly. 

In this wild milieu of informational and lifestyle choice saturation, the very foundations of all of our belief systems are being challenged, down to their very roots.  As a result, we are being presented with choices every day of our lives – and, to quote one of my favorite old rock bands, ‘if you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice’.  Whether we like it or not, embrace it or not, we MUST make these decisions, these selections, of what we want our personal worlds to look like.  Now.  The first step, however, is to open up our minds to possibilities that we may never have had to consider before, possibilities of the most fundamental aspects of what we call ‘reality’ that may crash head-on with what we considered ‘set in stone’ or ‘unquestionable’ as the ‘way things are’ just a few short years ago.  The path to higher consciousness is not always easy, but we are being pushed inexorably along this path that some call ‘ascension’ – and clearing out the dark veils draped over our highest inner truths is now essential if we are to successfully move forward.

Complex 3D crop formation

I have an old friend in the States who read an article I had published on crop circles a while ago.  His first reaction was, unfortunately, somewhat typical of mainstream middle-class attitudes.  As any person in this modern world can confirm for themselves (references were given in that article to do exactly that), crop circle formations have been with us for a very long time, and have represented an amazing and inspiring array of visceral imagery, complex geometry, sophisticated mathematics, and potential fundamental meanings that literally boggle the mind.  However my friend, a highly intelligent, educated professional who has lived in other countries and travelled the world many times over, chose to respond to this phenomenon as follows:  ‘I just don’t believe these are real.’  Whoa!  Note that he wasn’t talking about who possibly made them – which I could totally understand — but about their very existence!  He also told me that he believed that somebody just manufactured the photos of them on Adobe Photoshop, and posted them on the internet for fun (he chose to completely neglect to address the many videos and documentaries and newspaper and magazine and e-zine articles, etc., on the subject, let alone the tens of thousands of physical witnesses, including even some MSM reporters).  After I provided him with links to all the overwhelming proof of their obvious existence, he did finally admit that they apparently existed — but still cannot get himself to believe that the many hundreds of crop formations that have appeared throughout the world for several decades (or more) are anything more than some very extravagant, very advanced, very time- and cost- and labor-intensive practical joke.  The mere possibility of the existence of crop circles as a bona-fide scientifically inexplicable phenomena was so threatening to his perception of reality, that initially this university-educated man of the world even refused to spend five or ten minutes to check out the sources I had provided, do a simple fact-check!  I was truly shocked by his reaction of incredulity and flat denial.  Unfortunately, my old friend’s attitude towards crop formations – one he admittedly shares with tens of millions of other ‘mainstream’ thinkers — is unfortunately pretty typical, and can be applied to most ‘unusual’ phenomena that rarely, if ever, make it onto CNN or Fox News.  He suffers from the extreme pandemic that is generally known as DENIAL. 

Denial is one of the most debilitating syndromes in the modern era.  It inhibits middle and working class people from revolting, or even voting, against an inhumane, broken socio-economic system; it hampers and suppresses reporters from questioning the true causes of unusual explosions, untouched buildings spontaneDENIAL cartoon image - ostrich and businessmanously collapsing in total free-fall, and ‘freak accidents’ of people who are out there risking it all to bring to light the dark deceptions and manipulations of the ruling cabals.  The obfuscating mind-set of denial hinders investigators from making connections between the power/money elite, multinational corporations, orchestrated global financial scandals, political intransigence, Big Oil, Big Banking, Big Pharmy, and nonsensical wars.  Not wanting to admit even the possibility of nefarious conspiracies among our so-called ‘leaders’ stops most people from ever seriously considering the possibility that their deeply ingrained belief systems may be based on false assumptions, faulty science, and even outright lies.

Denial is a questionable psychological tool, that apparently only human beings possess, that has been part of our psychology for eons.  I came up with a hypothesis regarding why this relatively neglected aspect of the human psyche has become so powerful, so influential in our daily lives.  It relates to our comfort zones.  Our precious comfort zones. . . . .  I have always been absolutely amazed at how far people will go to stay deeply tucked into their cz’s.  I heard years ago that, even when confronted with undeniable proof from several independent sources, most people (especially women, statistically speaking) will absolutely refuse to accept even the possibility that their partners are cheating on them sexually.  Another statistic is even more horrific, the one that confirms that most abused women, despite powerful statements by concerned professionals employed to help them, feel that they have ‘done something wrong’ in order to cause their male partner’s physical attacks on them.  These are both common examples of the not-so-obvious connection between denial and comfort zones.  In a nutshell, if you can deny to yourself the existence of a fact or situation, or a link between two superficially disconnected facts or events, then you can remain safely in your cozy little comfort zone, where life is  . . . . well, not necessarily grand and joImageyful, but at least simple and manageable.  Most importantly, you will not be forced to completely reevaluate and change your deeply held beliefs and your perception of reality as you would like it to be.  In the above cited examples, these women, by denying that their husbands are cheating on them, or that their husbands are not nice people, are avoiding a very nasty confrontation – both internal and interpersonal.  How can they justify staying with the person they apparently love if they acknowledge his cheating, and/or that he has an inherently violent personality?  Once they admit to those realities, any option they choose makes for a quick, startling boot OUT of their familiar comfort zone and into a distressful, trying, potentially devastating face-off with ‘reality’ – one in which they could lose everything they hold dear in their lives.  Therefore, they avoid that psychological shock no matter what it takes – even if it costs them their sanity, or in some cases their very lives.  We need only look to today’s revelatory news about the poisoned food chain (especially from GMO foods) and the ‘side-effects’ of vaccines — and most people’s refusal to look at the horrific (and often fatal) damage they are doing to human beings, including our children — for conspicuous current examples.  Nowadays, to dig one’s heels deeply into denial in order to not be ‘uncomfortable’ psychologically really CAN kill you!  And your kids.

I have run across very few articles that dealt with this subject in my life (Hmmm, I wonder why?).  But one I did find was called The Illusion of Living Within Your Comfort Zone (Deborah Bier, PhD, 2010).  Her words may express more clearly to you what I am trying to convey:  ‘Many of us live in the illusion that comfort is the ultimate, and it must never be left except kicking and screaming… and then only at the point of a loaded gun. . . .  “Oh, I couldn’t talk about how much it means to me… speaking up is just not in my comfort zone.”  “Go after that big life change? Not yet — not until it’s in my comfort zone.”  “I’m not comfortable with what you want from me, so I’m going to say ‘no’.”  Who said we were supposed to be soImage comfortable all the time?  In the American culture I’ve been in my entire life, we seem to be stuck in the idea that living “comfortably” or “within one’s comfort zone” is some kind of right we have been granted by the Divine.  And to be pushed out of — or, heaven forbid, decide on our own to leave — our cozy sense of comfort, is some kind of horrendous personal assault.  I also encourage you to take to heart her vivid imagery, and deeply felt personal experience and conclusions:  Unless you are already living in a perpetual state of bliss, living within your comfort zone is to live in hell. Not a screaming in terror, boil in vats of lava kind of hell, but a numbing, dull, lifeless, pabulum kind where all the walls are painted off-white and everywhere is piped-in muzak. . . .  There’s no growth, no life-affirmation, no soul, no evolution — and every change is the enemy.  A devotion to being comfortable is life-sucking at its most persistent.’

Living in denial, and refusing adamantly to leave their cushy little comfort zones, has seemed to become de rigeur for most Westerners these days, and has now become the primary cause of global pollution and destruction.  Maybe you can see how fundamentally damaging it is – fatal even at this juncture in our history — for us as a species to continue to live with this mind-set controlling our global consumerist culture.  Let me explain.  If you can continue to deny (refuse to ‘believe’) that our climate is changing in an aMade by Samsung DVClarming way – regardless of the root cause or causes – then you can continue to drive your fossil fuel-guzzling SUV, support oil and gas drilling in national parks, vote for the decimation of natural forests for the sake of the ‘survival of the lumber industry’, and support your local industrial and nuclear power plants — all with complete freedom from guilt.  Its just soooooo much easier that way, isn’t it?!  If you can also deny that the millions of metric tons of nonrecyclable trash spewed by human beings into previously pristine environments every single day is having a seriously destructive effect on life on this planet, especially our dying oceans; and that the controllers of this world are pulling out the stops to maintain their vise-grip on our minds and souls; and that having the latest iPhone and biggest house and newest car are all that matters in life; etc., etc. – then you may soon go bonkers in your attempt to maintain your catastrophic illusions.  The veil is now being pulled off the face of Reality these days, and it’s going to take more and more serious effort to sustain the mirage of ‘business as usual’ for those among us who cherish the ‘ignorance is bliss’ approach to life.

We can no longer afford the luxury of living in denial, nor of fighting tooth and nail to maintain sheltered lives in our debilitating comfort zones.  If we are to save this planet – much less pass it down to our children and grandchildren in anything even remotely resembling a better state than we ourselves inherited it in – than we as a species must stop our crazed zombie march towards the cliff of annihilation, open up our minds to the disturbing, even alarming circumstances we find ourselves in — both physically and culturally — and force ourselves, both individually and collectively – to make the very UNcomfortable, possibly UNpleasant, and distinctly UNavoidable choices that will lead us all, and our descendants, to a much more sane, balanced, healthy, sustainable, and heart-centered lifestyle.  Now.  Please think deeply about this, and stop rejecting out of hand any facts or evidence that you come across that forces a conclusion that may not be ‘comfortable’ for you and your ‘take’ on reality.  Take true comfort in this extremely encouraging fact:  You are not alone!  Once you make your decision to help humanity accept the facts, and the gravity, of the current unpalatable situation, and then decide to DO what you can to help make manifest a much better reality, you will find that there is LOTS of assistance and support among like-minded souls out there.  So throw off your self-imposed shackles and join us in this sacred task – and discover once again how exciting, meaningful and truly ecstatic life can really BE.  Coming together as the One People that we are, we do have the power to co-create a clean, universally abundant, truly egalitarian, and magnificently resplendent New Earth!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT (& ACTION) — Tinderboxes, Avalanches, & Pressure Cookers


Our Current Situation

The Global Elite, in one form or another, have been ruling our planet for eons. They have grown in both power and hubris over the last few centuries, ruling over us in their minds by ‘divine right’ and, according to some reports from those intimately familiar with their perspective, they even possess the unshakeable belief that they are ‘genetically superior’ to the ‘ignorant rabble’, and were always destined to be the masters of us ‘useless eaters’. Since they have been bred and raised within that system of belief, and their personal experiences up until very, very recently have done nothing but reinforce these appalling sentiments, I believe it is folly to attempt to resolve the situation – peacefully or otherwise — without taking these facts into primary consideration.

The only language that this relatively small group of people has ever learned to speak – and been indoctrinated and trained into respecting above all other forms of ‘communication’ — is the language of raw physical power. Even their fascination with occult rituals and such 4th-dimensional exercises, as well as their intense training in subtle forms of non-physical communication, manipulation, and mass psychology, has had as its sole purpose the acquisition and consolidation of more influence and control over our third-dimensional world.

We as a planet stand at a crossroads. There is no more time for silly games, nor for delays, and even less for denying the true nature of our dire situation. Pollyanna attitudes will lose the day, and summarily derail our valiant march towards the oft-promised Golden Age. We need to take off our rose-colored glasses, see things as they truly ARE, and deal with them assertively and, yes, forcefully if necessary – whether we ‘like’ it or not. Remember the ancient adage; God helps those who help themselves. Have not our galactic brethren been saying as much for what feels like years now?

The Dangers of Denial, Wishful Thinking, and Physical Inaction

The enormous pressures of our oppression over the last few centuries, and especially the last few decades, have dammed up the human psyche. The sheer volume of repressed anger, angst, and even rage have grown to explosive levels, to put it mildly. The box by the fireplace is now wide open, dry as an old bones in the desert sun, and the accumulated tinder is spilling out all over the place. As we have seen in the Middle East, even the tiniest spark — just one single person making a dramatic statement of final rebellion on behalf of his fellows against The System (the young martyr in Tunisia) — can literally explode upon the world without reason or temperance, resulting in bloody death and destruction on a mass scale. This scenario — an amorphous, undirected, disorganized flash flood of deeply-repressed violent emotion unleashed both from and upon hordes of innocent people – should not be allowed to happen again. Unchecked conflagrations like that only serve the agenda of the Dark Ones, as they provide for them a perfect excuse to come in with heavy armaments to ‘keep the peace’, and push us even deeper into abject slavery.

To look at it another way . . . . . I have never myself lived above the snow line in mountainous areas, but have visited often and read a bit about that lifestyle. I was fascinated to find out how often very dangerous, even fatal, situations are created when lots of snow falls in a relatively brief stretch of time, and enormous weight is placed on cliff edges and such on the sides of large mountains. So what do the local folk living in the towns below and beside these dangerous mountains do in order to avoid the looming disaster of massive avalanches, some of which have wiped out entire villages in less time than it takes to put on a pair of snowshoes? They place powerful explosives in very specific, well-thought-out places on certain sensitive pressure points within the deep snow banks and accumulations. Then they set them off. This ‘strategy’ in the face of imminent threat saves literally thousands of lives each year – using intelligent, well-calculated and minimally-destructive, disciplined ‘violence’ to avoid utter devastation and massive loss of life.

My mom used to cook beans with a pressure cooker. As a kid, I always tripped out on both its design and function, and the underlying concept behind it. The most amazing thing is to see how such enormous pressure can be controlled and utilized in a very productive way – but can also get quickly out of hand if that same pressure is not released bit by bit, like if the valve gets stuck. Things can go very, very wrong in an alarmingly short period of time. The result is not pretty.

The Narrow Path of The Middle Way

Yes, it may be true that ‘violence begets violence’. However, most people that sit firmly on the ‘meditate our way to liberation’ side of the fence may be missing fully half of that ancient equation. You see, the Cabal is using direct, brutal, inhuman violence against us every single day – both physical and psychological. No sane person can deny this fact. This has always been their modus operandi. Therefore, the violence that they are ‘begetting’ is precisely our resistance to their attacks. Our counter-strategy of at least some bit of ‘violence’ – or the perception thereof — is actually necessary to balance out their nefarious actions and short-circuit the horrific cycle forever! I agree wholeheartedly that matching physical force with an equal or greater amount of force is not a good idea, no, nor would it be productive in the end, only serving to exacerbate the situation. However, a small, carefully measured amount of decisive and forceful collective physical action – not necessarily violent, you see, only potentially so if ‘they’ decide to fight back (which some undoubtedly will, preferring death to surrender to us ‘dumbed down cannon fodder’ – but relatively few in my opinion) – should resolve the situation once and for all, and facilitate their capitulation. You see, the appearance or illusion of physical strength — the major currency of their trade — can be just as effective as the ‘real thing’. Why not use their own tactics against them??? Besides, there ain’t nothin’ more ‘persuasive’ to a power-mad, twisted mentality such as theirs than a rifle barrel pointed directly at their forehead. Just look at how quickly they agreed to at least sit down and discuss the possibility of surrender (regardless of their true intentions) after our friends started sabotaging their arsenal of WMDs. This proves the fact that the display of physical force – even if never employed — is the ONLY effective strategy available to us at this late date to deal with these intransigent miscreants. Otherwise, they will continue to see us as ‘weak cowards’ who are more concerned with watching soap opera reruns and how many app’s our cell phones have, than our true freedom and the health and futures of our children and planetary life-support systems. I still have difficulty comprehending how people can literally watch silently as they poison our skies with deadly chemtrails, and shut down and even incarcerate simple organic farmers and health food companies just trying to provide a healthier option for the population. The apathy I observe in the face of such vicious assaults just boggles my mind. I side with Patrick Henry (and Drake) on this one for sure.

Anyway, if their incarceration and maiming and killing of humans, animals, and Gaia Herself are allowed to continue any longer, the ONLY viable option that our Earth shall have is total annihilation of our hideously destructive modern civilization. That would mean massive earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes going off in the dozens or hundreds (which is actually already starting to happen), etc., etc. Apocalypse Now. Even our Friends On High have mentioned this as a possibility (not a probability, mind you, but a distinct possibility) countless times – IF we 99.9% don’t get our collective s—t together right quick and cut down the cornered Beast that still thrashes about wildly among us.

Those innocent souls who believed that the majority of the Global Elite would actually willingly surrender, especially under the terms that Cobra and Drake and company laid out on their web sites, were suffering from a potentially fatal lack of understanding of how those people think. Many of us with family and/or friends in such organizations as the military, corporate upper management, large business ownership, elitist business clubs and groups, etc. simply knew that that scenario was never anything more than a fairy tale, a pipe dream, subtly perpetuated by the highly-educated strategists and think tanks of the elite themselves to buy more time to execute their horrific agenda (which they are fervently attempting as you read this with Agenda 21 and the new ‘treaty’ in the Eurozone) – regardless of how sincerely and ardently we prayed and meditated to change that reality. Once you reach a certain point, it is quite impossible to change another person from the outside against their will. This is why the ET/EDs keep emphasizing to us to just send them love and light, and forget any other ‘spiritual strategy’. Regardless, their overtures of peace were never real, never sincere (at least for that majority of them). This is why Cobra mentioned the fact that those who are helping Gaia shake off her life-sucking parasites at this juncture already had back-up plans in place. Naturally! They’ve dealt with the off-planet versions of these warped psyches for eons, and KNOW their basic mentality. Sure, despite the awareness of our oppressors’ duplicitous nature, it is never a bad idea, spiritually speaking, to give your ‘enemy’ every possible chance to redeem themselves, mend their ways, and seek restitution. I agree. However, as Drake and our Galactic Family and many others have clearly expressed, we’ve given way, way more time to them than they have ever given to us (or even considered giving), and THEIR TIME IS UP! We can no longer afford to play the ‘softie’ in this grand game of hardball, the ‘innocent victims’ (which we are decidedly NOT, of course, as part of the collective Whole – see countless other articles and channelings about how those who rule us are only physical reflections of the Dark aspects of us all) — without literally sacrificing the majority of the population of Gaia in the process – humans, animals, and plant life included.

The Resolution, Our Collective Revolution, Is Now At Hand

I ask only this: PLEASE help all those raging souls in the United States and the rest of the world to resolve their personal karmic situations once and for All, release their heavy energetic burdens in a collectively constructive manner, via the purgative ACTION of fighting for their freedom and/or protecting their families and communities against the murderous assaults of the Cabal. If they are blocked from doing this, stymied from releasing that immensely powerful energetic bombshell, both they and we shall have to deal with it in some other, possibly even less harmonious (ie., more violent and destructive) manner. And PLEASE give our counterparts on the ‘other side’ of this spectrum the opportunity to learn their final lessons in duality and move on, instead of forcing them to continually believe in their chosen paths as ‘right’ and ‘proper for the teeming masses’, an outlook that they shall only perpetuate and persecute upon other humans on other worlds if not revealed and disassembled right now. PLEASE stop trying to control other people’s thinking and behavior, regardless of how ‘right’ and ‘honorable’ you believe your chosen path and/or solution to be in your mind. If one limits oneself firmly to a dualistic, ‘right vs. wrong’ system of thought, is not one only perpetuating the current broken and dysfunctional paradigm? Consider allowing those brave souls among us to do what their hearts are telling them is the ‘right’ and ‘honorable’ way out of our very tricky dilemma. The militias and warriors among us cannot be condemned as ‘wrong’ and ‘unbalanced’ simply because they seek a better world than they grew up in for themselves and their loved ones, and know no other way to accomplish their missions that are overwhelmingly based on equally loving and compassionate motives than our more ‘peaceful’ strategies are, now can they?

Time To Move On, Folks . . . .

Please contemplate the above offerings. And please remember what actually may be the most important bit of ‘intel’ of all: Our collective dream in Illusion is ending. The Matrix is being revealed for what it is, and always really was – and broken down forever on this ailing world. It never was truly ‘real’ anyway, you see. This is another aspect of our world that has been hammered home to us via the ascended masters, angels, saints, yogis, modern physicists and goodly ETs throughout history. Once you accept this fact, the fear-based stress of making the ‘wrong decision’ fades quickly into the oblivion from whence it emerged.

Like a grand circus that has overstayed its time in the fields of summer, and must move on and make room for the new plantings in the fall, the impressive Big Top, vender stands glittering with toys and baubles, outrageous rides and challenging games are being quickly dismantled and packed up in their crates — despite the hordes of people still wanting to shoot at moving targets, win stuffed animals, paint their faces with crazy colors, watch feats of skill and daring by acrobats and their trained menagerie, gorge themselves on barbecued meats and cotton candy, and mount scary rides that whirl dizzily in the sky. Let the long-suffering crews do their final work here, as the rains have come and the soft dirt is turning quickly to sticky mud. If you’re one of those die-hard players that simply can’t let go of the ‘fun and games’, even at the cost of your own health or that of your friends and family – or continue to insist that you know ‘best’ how to take down the giant metal structures and collect the trash scattered all over the fairgrounds — I strongly urge you to reconsider your attitude. There’ll be other 3D carnivals, other thrilling rides, other stimulating games to play – just not here. Again, please allow the mechanics and janitors to do their thankless but critical jobs, so that those of us who are ready to leave the playground (for another, even more fun and satisfying one — but with more wholesome and mutually joyful activities) can do so in peace and satisfaction of time well spent, and our long summer of wild adventures can finally come to a close.

Thank you for your time and thoughtful consideration.
