“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.” – Albert Camus
That quote pretty much sums it up, at least on one level. What’s fundamentally dystopic is that humanity petitions others for their freedom, as if it’s something to be granted by someone else in a position of authority over them. Not only is that counter intuitive at a very deep level, but it reinforces the very paradigm from which they are trying to escape.
It’s very much like putting the cart before the horse – and then the horse complains about it and asks those who did it to change the situation. There may be a time to straighten out a misunderstanding and stupid mistake by pointing out the obvious in a particular situation, but ultimately it’s up to the bridled human to have some “horse sense” and just say no to the situation and be its true independent self and not cooperate with being yoked into bondage and just break free from the bridle and reins…and dump the saddle as well.
That metaphor doesn’t fully describe this phenomenon, but we all get “yoked” into situations in our lives as its built into the very nature of the matrix. Anything from compromising personal relationships with friends, family and loved ones to employment or imposed legal restrictions. This is no small thing we’re encountering here in this earth-human experience. The question remains – how do we deal with these challenges on both a micro and the much more profound macro spiritual level?
Why Petition Pathological Lying Psychopaths?
Just look at the world today. Unfortunately, while this fact that such non-empathic, power-crazed personages is well known to be the case amongst rulers, politicians, bankers, corporate monsters and the Orwellian media, people still take their word, hoping against hope that their empty promises will come true. What is that? Is it lethargy, apathy, psychotic denial, mind control, or what? Most likely it’s a convergence of many such conditions, but the reality of this form of mass Stockholm syndrome is absolutely pathetic.
Stockholm Syndrome 101:
Stockholm syndrome, or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon described in 1973 in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with the captors. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness.
Stockholm syndrome can be seen as a form of traumatic bonding, which does not necessarily require a hostage scenario, but which describes “strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other.” One commonly used hypothesis to explain the effect of Stockholm syndrome…suggests that the bonding is the individual’s response to trauma in becoming a victim. Identifying with the aggressor is one way that the ego defends itself. When a victim believes the same values as the aggressor, they cease to be perceived as a threat. [Emphasis mine] (source)
Sound familiar? That’s society at large. Just the abuse/sbuser cycle is rife in society, and designedly so. After all, these so-called rulers have themselves been abused by their handlers, physical and/or interdimensional, and so pass on that same paradigm. Hence the massive propagation of fear as the ultimate controlling signal. It’s the implanted and socially engineered parasitic mindset, be it archontic, wetiko or some other transdimensional explanation of this energetic vampirism. The dynamic is there and it’s designed to disempower and control through intimidation, fear and ignorance of the truth.
What are they afraid of ultimately? What is it they are trying to suppress? Because underlying this is the empowering reality that we can break from that cycle at any time; first by identifying what is going on and then by making the necessary changes in our thinking, behavior and attitudes while continuing to grow in manifestation of the infinite divine expression within each of us.
Our Expression Is Who We Are
Gandhi’s famous quote above is more than just a nice slogan. It’s extremely deep – in fact as deep as you can possibly go when it comes to fully realizing the magnificence of our true selves.
The most powerful and impactful effect any of us can have is being who we truly are. To what degree we’re willing to manifest our true self is the challenge we all face, including the apparent nuts and bolts on how we do that in a practical way, one step at a time as we continually raise our levels of consciousness.
Essentially it’s not complicated at all. Being honest, lovingly forthright and sovereign comes naturally to the soul. It’s the rest of our convoluted, conditioned and reflexive self that needs to snap out of the hypnosis and catch up.
Changing our personal environment is a big start. Cut away the hindrances to where you can gather some momentum in manifesting your integral, honest and authentic self. Drop the downers and energy vampires out of your life. You’re not helping them by continuing on as just another compromised gnome to appease and avoid confrontation. That’s the matrix working through our horrific psycho-social programming to hold us back at as low of a frequency as possible – and to NOT venture out into our full-on freedom but stay firmly in the yoke of their parasitic grip.
There’s plenty of motivation to do this for anyone even half awake. The exterior world of the system is closing down at a frantic pace, and your life, mine, and those of our loved ones and the many wonderful people worldwide as well as the life of our very planet are at stake.It reminds me of when young men were called to war and supposedly battle for the freedom of their homeland. When the calling came, however manipulated, families respected it.
It’s called the courage of one’s convictions.
The beauty of our current situation is that the contest and opportunity we’re engaging in is a spiritual one, with nothing but empowerment involved. It’s not a physical battle, nor another futile political struggle, but a war of ideas, truth vs lies, love vs hate and selfishness, and a willingness to go into unknown territories of discovery that few have ever experienced, never mind manifested, before.
And what ultimately is the proof of what we’re endeavoring to see manifested on earth? Our very lives. If we’re not living it, at whatever cost to our past paradigms and self image, we are only perpetrating the frustration and ultimate problem we say we want to help dissolve.
It’s A Process – Make Wise Choices But Don’t Hold Back
It doesn’t necessarily happen overnight, but it can. At least the initial break to where we convince ourselves we’re serious. That’s when the inspiration and empowerment steps up. In fact, each act of personal commitment has the same effect. The challenges don’t stop, but it gets easier in many ways. It can be pretty daunting at times to continue up the mountain, but wow is it worth it! And oh how the world yearns for our example, liberating signals and bright, free flares on the darkening landscape!
That should motivate anyone. After all, what are we here for? To live selfish lives of comfort, ease and false security, afraid of personal change and the unknown? Or manifesting our true selves and stepping out to learn new and exciting things, all while transforming the world around us and helping precipitate its best possible outcome.
Yeah, it’s that cool! So what’s with the fear?
We each have such magnificence to be manifested, but it must be set free!
That goes for anyone and everyone – including me. Just say “yes” to the challenges one step at a time and it will all unfold.
It’s not that complicated.
See your shining face on the mountain!
Much love always, Zen
