“We should be able to better discern the difference between gaining knowledge through being educated and informed in matters, versus information that is being intentionally manipulated to influence an audience to spread a specific agenda, by manipulating people’s behavior without them even realizing it. Not taking what we’ve been told at face value by doing our own research and due diligence, combined with Critical Thinking and common sense, helps us to become more responsible in where we invest our time and energy.”
Propaganda is directly related to classical conditioning mind control tactics that are used to psychologically and emotionally manipulate people, Therefore, it is important to be aware of these manipulation methods and ask ourselves what we know about propaganda messages. How is propaganda being used and what can we do to shield ourselves to prevent its destructive effects in our psyche and unconscious impulses? We should be able to better discern the difference between gaining knowledge through being educated and informed in matters, versus information that is being intentionally manipulated to influence an audience to spread a specific agenda, by manipulating people’s behavior without them even realizing it. Not taking what we’ve been told at face value by doing our own research and due diligence, combined with Critical Thinking and common sense, helps us to become more responsible in where we invest our time and energy.
Critical Thinking is inward-directed with the intent of maximizing the reasoning ability and Coherence of the thinker. One does not use critical thinking to solve problems — one uses critical thinking to improve one’s process of thinking. Such as making an appraisal based on careful analysis or evaluation, as well as considering the intuitive insights that are felt in the circumstances.
Self-Assessment is a critical step in improving Discernment and making self-corrections when you have gone out of balance — such as when you have been triggered and feeling overwhelmed and stressed out.
To be able to improve our thinking through performing self-assessment, lets break down what that actually looks like, and how you can begin to develop this skill to see things much more deeply that exist underneath the surface or be able to restore balance in a situation.
For beginners, keep a Journal on a weekly basis, or if you are able to hold these steps in your mind, as you run through a situation that felt significant to you. Each week, or when something happens that feels significant to you, run through this process to help you integrate what has happened. A general format would look like:
1. Situation. Describe a situation that is, or was, emotionally significant to you (that is, that you deeply care about). Focus on one situation at a time in observer mode.
2. Your Response. Describe what you did in response to that situation.
3. Analysis. Then analyze, in the light of what you have written, what precisely was going on in the situation. Dig beneath the surface. What are the patterns, what are the lessons, what impressions do you get? NO judgment only witnessing.
4. Assessment. Assess the implications of your analysis, impressions and feelings. What did you learn about yourself? What would you do differently if you could re-live the situation?
When you are able to hold observer, and look into the deeper meaning of things happening in your life. This Critical Thinking skill happens automatically and without effort. It greatly improves clarity and Discernment. In the observer, and with the ability to self-assess and learn from your life experiences and interactions, then you can easily reshape and improve your character into forming positive attributes.
When you can hold observer mode and self-assess it makes it easier to reshape and improve your character. Choose one positive character trait it could be meaningful to you personally like Empathy, courage, humility, or choose a GSF Behavior or Spirit of Christ virtues. Then strive for each month, to focus on how you can develop that attribute in yourself and make sue of it in day to day or life situations.
We all must face the Negative Ego and Pain Body. Ego centered thinking tends to think with an automatic subconscious bias in favor of our own needs, wishes and desires. On a daily basis, you can begin to observe egoic based thinking when you notice the mind showing favor of yourself over others. DO I impose my will upon others? Do I feel resentment towards others that seem to have it easier than me? Once you identify ego thinking in operation, you can then work to replace it with self-reflection towards increasing personal integrity.
Redefine the Way You See Things. When you learn to give your mind a new interpretation of your reality, you begin to see an entirely different world. With this practice of giving gratitude for our lives, we become aware of our personal stories, point of view, emotional states and our power to create. Giving gratitude creates happiness in our heart. We can be fulfilled when otherwise we would have been frustrated. In this strategy, we practice redefining the way we see things, turning negatives into positives.
Analyze Group Consciousness influences on your life. Closely analyze the kind of behavior that is encouraged, and discouraged, in the groups to which you belong. For any given group, look at its main purpose, the core of its beliefs and what has brought that group together. Every group has a purpose or belief which has organized it. Most people are too concerned about what others think of them, and its important to detach from what others think, and focus on what you think. In becoming unified we must learn to understand interdependence within community as a spiritual principle and then as an actualized reality. When one is in group consciousness, one must retain his/her individual identity, however, also maintain a conscious group identity. Once one is living in group consciousness, one realizes all aspects are God consciousness and the energetic reality is then learning to live harmoniously as a Cosmic Citizen. One can maintain a sense of individual identity and group identity simultaneously.
The Propaganda Model
The covert intelligence community or deep state cabals have been partnering with news media organizations for decades, for the purpose of Social Engineering and mass Mind Control. Government intelligence experiments are conducted in partnership with academic and scientific institutions worldwide, recognizing academia as the most fertile soil of assorted human Mind Control and behavioral experiments, to churn out Propaganda models. They seed a propaganda program in academic setting, the oversight committee is trotted out to make it credible with expert opinions, it gets funded, and voila we have the scientific mainstream in consensus, and this propaganda is taught as the absolute highest truth, scientific method proven, which is in many cases fabricated or altered.
