“Sadly, most people don’t understand how the world works because they are so consumed with other things. We live in a society that is absolutely addicted to entertainment… [T]he average American spends more than 10 hours a day plugged in to some form of media. If we are not watching television, we are listening to the radio, going to movies, playing video games, messing with our smartphones or spending endless hours on the Internet. And more than 90 percent of the “programming” that we are fed through these devices is produced by just 6 absolutely gigantic media corporations.
And who controls those gigantic media corporations? The elite do. And have you noticed how “the mainstream media” loves to divide us?
Today, Americans are more divided than ever it seems. Our news broadcasts endlessly fixate on “black vs. white,” “male vs. female,” “liberal vs. conservative,” “rich vs. poor,” etc, etc.
Americans are extremely angry and frustrated at this point, but most of our anger and frustration is directed at one another. How can we ever hope to come up with any solutions for our nation if we spend so much time hating our fellow citizens?
But this is just how the elite like it. They love to play divide and conquer. If we were united, we would be far more difficult to manipulate.” ~Michael Snyder
“We, you might say, are the very first generation – certainly mine is – to come along and say, ‘Well, yeah, whatever. I don’t really classify myself based on my genetic heritage, nor do I evaluate myself based on my economic situation; therefore, that immediately releases me from lots of systems.’
[U]nderstand that you’re not a subject of any monarch, that’s a fiction. You’re also not a citizen… If you are a free human sovereign being, you are not a citizen – that’s a fiction.
And if you are enmeshed only in the theater, it feels like you’re trapped. And so the path of the mystic, and this is a sacred and wonderful thing, is to see that that is not true, that you are not trapped in the theater; only your mind is trapped here. Once you’ve understood that process, and once you begin that unfoldment…
The unfoldment is a simple choice – it’s the choice to take yourself seriously. There can be no unknown areas in the unfoldment, no blocked emotions, no weak triggers. You have to go deep.
…it attaches you to your true position of consciousness, which is not here. And to get there, you need to purify your mind, which is the whole endeavor of the mystic… to purify the mind to an extent where it locates the higher self and begins to withdraw it’s consent to it’s own bondage.
And if we want to change this, all we have to do is stop agreeing to it. There’s a purpose for animal nature, which is what we’re enmeshed in at the moment, and one of the purposes of it is to learn high conduct, to learn that morality and ethics and principles and discipline is the bedrock, the foundation, of spiritual growth. So, the point of it isn’t to get out and escape – it’s to use this place as the very instrument itself for transformation.”
“This month we have reached the time of adolescence in our own growth cycle and evolution. It is emotionally hormonal, reactive against old structures and perceived limitations, and extremely uncomfortable. We don’t know who we are anymore, can’t relate to our world, and tend to moodiness and resistance. And just like it was when you were 11 or 12 or 13 years old, the only way to the other side is through. To stay behind is not an option. Change is the only thing that we can truly count on. So it is not a question of whether or not we move through this cycle but HOW we move through it…
The key is to pay attention to what is showing up, how it is showing up and to stay out of negative reaction. Neutrality and acceptance around any situation will go a long way in moving you through the belches and glitches that threaten to derail your sense of well-being… Then you can follow with taking a proactive step towards your own change and re-patterning, always being aware of the bigger picture and not taking anything personally…
The end result will be more personal power, a greater sense of freedom to live your life the way you want, and a deeper experience of self-love and confidence. There has never been a better time than now to move into a place of more trust in spirit and a deep inner knowing that all is as it should be. So embrace your growing pains and enjoy the ride.”
