Q: “I keep reading from various authors that it’s necessary to see through the “deception” and become more spiritually aware. I am all for that, but how does it help? If you can see what’s going on for what it really is, what can be done about it?”
A: “The world at large cannot be changed, I don’t think. One reason is that there are too many naive, stupid, or ignorant people (in the technical sense of those terms, not derogatory) who need, want, and sustain the negative control system. However, what you can do is protect yourself from it as much as possible, and help others who are receptive do likewise…
You can make more informed choices. If you know how the financial system works, maybe you won’t be so eager to sign up for that 401k or whatever. Maybe you won’t be drinking Coke all the time, or chowing down on GMO corn. Maybe you won’t vote for the next Bush or Obama, let alone campaign for them like a chump. Maybe you’ll see things coming because you have your eyes open, and will take the exit door onto a safer pathway while the herd stampedes onwards toward the cliff. Maybe if aliens show up and shower us with gifts of technology, you’ll recognize the disinformation tactics and know they’re not the good guys, and you won’t get the cool brain-enhancing chip they’re giving away. Maybe someone who’s on the cusp of awakening gets into a conversation with you, and you have a hard drive full of videos or eBooks you could transfer, etc.
Overall it’s about making yourself more prescient, helpful, agile, and prepared. Preparation is what happens in between action. Action moments are few and far between, and the “what can I even do right now?” sentiment can get irritating and exasperating if you don’t realize that living, being, and preparing are important, for they make you enjoy what you’re doing and make you more capable of acting when the opportunity arises. Think of it like being a fireman; lots of sitting around playing cards and sleeping and training… until the alarm rings.” ~Tom Montalk
