Look for a moment at the inescapable truth, the invariable wars perpetuated through capitalizing on and antagonizing the ignorance of private prejudices, dividing us from those across the world, even from those across the room. The corporate controlled media uses religion and patriotism like a crowbar, to take sacred devotion and turn it into a profane tool of division from each other. This vicious cycle divides us likewise from ourselves. They play on our empathetic nature to turn our positive emotional capabilities into weapons of consent, so we will endorse further war, and promote acts of violence in the name of justice, in the name of security. What is the true cost of this? Besides the 800$ billion the US spends each year on the actual military initiatives of killing, violence, and domination for profit, all which could have been spent to better the situation of all humankind (to feed the hungry, to invest in sustainable free energy research, to cure cancer for god’s sake). We could be searching through the outer cosmos, discovering the secrets to life, but we are brawling in the nastiest and most despicable fashion instead, and all based on manufactured and despicable lies upon lies.
THE TRUTH: http://read.feedly.com/html?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.infowars.com%2Ftruth-we-dont-need-no-stinkin-truth%2F&theme=white&size=medium
There are millions of people displaced from their homes, losing families, permanently injured physically, mentally, and emotionally scarred. The victims of atrocities we may never comprehend the gravity of: genocides, military strikes for political agendas they had nothing to do with, people like me, and like you. Can you imagine this? All of the casualties are just business as usual for the lobbyist swayed government we pay our taxes to. People are starving, children are freezing, land is being ravaged, animals and countless creatures’ lives are endangered and even facing extinction. We have lived for over a century in the lavish fabrication of reality generated through the media, telling us we can make our lives easier with ziplock bags and microwave meals in packages that we throw away, swept off to some unknown and forgotten location as if by magic. We look on TV and see everyone living a life that we are meant to replicate. One in which the only existence we are aware of is our own gratuitous subsistence, our bank owned institution implanted industry driven ambitions, and we live as if all the resources on earth are here to quell our every thirst, no matter the cost to the world which suffers from our careless and consumerist life style.
We cannot continue with business as usual, we must, each and every one of us begin making real changes. One of the biggest changes we must make at the bedrock of our revolution to form a new paradigm, one in which humankind might thrive, is to become aware of the truth: that we are all connected, that a species which attacks itself will not survive, that a species which destroys its home, its food, its source of energy, water and air, will slowly but surely be vanquished.
We are spiritual beings by nature, meaning our physical body is only one dimension of our multifaceted existence. We are no different than all other matter, as modern quantum physics is proving, and all matter is consciousness based first. Consider this: all matter is made up of tiny quantum particles. These invisible fundamental elements are mostly (99.99999%) empty space. This means everything we see, and think we see, everything we touch and feel is mainly an illusion of dense matter. This does not mean however that we are empty. In fact it is just the opposite. In between every particle is energy. There are subtle and vibrant energies moving through the seeming empty space, unseen forces which act upon one another, bringing form into being from the formlessness. From the potential of waveforms and fields we do not understand, the actual is born. There is hope, and that hope is ignited within you.
We blame society and the system, but we are society, we collectively make up the paradigm we are a part of. Each of us contributes to the way it is, or conversely, the way we want it to be. Through understanding the bigger picture we may see that most of the largest issues we face come from one massive root that must be addressed. The source of many of the environmental, social and even political issues corrupting the world is made murky through the constant bombardment of distractions and misinformation in the media. It becomes clearer when stepping away and seeing the truth for yourself, through your own research, and through common sense.
Centralized banks, the oil industry, and big business have been the main sources of corruption out to every branch of society. They are making irresponsible decisions affecting the environment and society. And they are the same ones poisoning the lawmakers through lobbying, or essentially bribery, to clear any legal obstacles to their continued contempt. How can we make a change against something that seems so megalithic and how do we address faceless corporations, banks and business’s that bring in more capital than the GDP of many countries? The answer is simple, by removing our individual fuel from the fire. This can mean boycotting these business’s and banks. This can mean consciously moving away from the use of not only their products, but taking away our endorsement of their business practices as a whole. These Goliath corporations are not solely to blame, they are only following the trends of our demands as a society. After all, agree or disagree with their business model, we have continued to buy into their products, and therefore their ethics or lack thereof. We can sweep the rug out from these dark institutions by making responsible decisions with what we buy into going forward.
Please understand: the war on terror in Iraq, resulting in upwards of 2,500,000 deaths, most of them civilian, has been mainly about oil and the destruction continues to this day, over a decade later. Oil companies and big business running completely rabid with no regard for any semblance of a social conscious. People like Dick Cheney became rich off of the war in Iraq, and his company Halliburton made billions. Please understand that Monsanto which poisons people across the US with toxic roundup herbicide and GMO’s (linked to birth defects and multiple health concerns*), is the same company which killed hundreds of thousands, and poisoned millions with Agent Orange in the Vietnam war. How could a company like that proceed with a green light through the checkpoints of a system which is meant to protect the best interest of its people? Receiving an all clear from the FDA, and even bypassing the normal formality of requiring labeling. How could this be? Monsanto has many conflicts of interest, lawmakers we are all familiar with (like Hillary Clinton) sitting on the board making a profit off of an irresponsible product which is poisoning people and the earth’s entire food chain. Conflicts of interest like this are sickeningly prevalent and entirely unregulated in the highest levels of politics. I hope you can begin to see, just the top, of the tip of the iceberg which makes up the many issues we are collectively dealing with.
Do not feel powerless, we have had the power all along. Through taking a twofold approach, we can fix this. We have to stop further damage as a priority. We can stop further damage by sweeping the rug out from under these business’s. An industry which does not sell its product will not be able to continue. This means big oil, this means big banks, this means big agro-giants like Monsanto. Here are some ways to do this: move our money into local credit unions, drastically (and I mean drastically) reduce our use of plastic, and oil. We can begin to buy organic produce, or even better, buy local through food co-ops and farmers markets. The second side of this coin is that we must address the damage already done, there is a lot of trash we have already made, and a lot of land, water and air which has already been destroyed. We need to get serious about recycling, and about renewable energy resources like solar and wind (this is cheaper than you might imagine and there are companies offering deals to install solar equipment with no money out of pocket). We need to initiate and become involved in cleanup efforts. All of these improvements are attainable, and there is nothing more satisfying than being a part of making the world a better place for your children’s, children’s, children.
Ask real questions, seek real answers, do not go along with the flow, brace the current and weigh it against what you know to be right. Get in tune with who you are, know yourself deeply, forgive yourself, forgive others, that is the beginning of true healing. Embrace your flaws and perfections, your strengths and your misgivings. Take the time out of the noise of this big business to find silence. Find the time to listen to yourself, find your higher voice. We are finding the truth, through one another, through acts of kindness, through efforts in understanding, through letting go of the lies we once believed which have separated us. We are opening our minds and through that we are opening hearts. We are finally beginning to believe in something bigger--there is something bigger than any of us have ever supposed and it connects us all.
We are not the trouble that surrounds us in this world. We are the healers, the seekers, the lovers and the messengers; and we have work to do. Everything that happens in our lives, the terrible and the great things, they shake us awake. This adversity breaks us open so that we can learn the truth of love and connection. We are the love we seek and we are the change this world needs. We can make a difference in this world, by making a difference in ourselves, in the way we live our daily lives. We must become aware of what we are doing. Why are the rainforests being burned down? Why is the earth and water being poisoned by fracking and tar sands? Why is there a mountain of trash off the Pacific Rim? We must begin to recognize we cannot continue to create waste, to waste energy, and resources in an irresponsible and unsustainable way. We must begin to be aware of the agenda behind the constant wars, and refuse to continue to fight them, not only physically but mentally, in our everyday lives.
We have to make changes, or nothing will change period. There is so much more to who we are as a species, spiritually and intellectually, than the industry driven consumerism we submit to every day. We are in the midst of a massive awakening. People are beginning to come into a higher level of awareness. We are part of a global transformation, our consciousness is evolving and it is time.
