‘THANKSGIVING’ EVERY DAY ~ Lisa Renee on Gratitude

“Even when you are exhausted and can hardly summon up the energy to shift into a feeling and sensation of gratitude, when you have to force yourself to begin, this practice of gratitude still has great magnetizing power. As you move through your day, pause now and then when you remember something or someone in your life that you appreciate. Hold the feeling and think how grateful you feel for having that experience in your life. As you are doing something in the day, cooking breakfast, sleeping in a bed, having time with a cherished pet, as you are in that activity, pause to think and feel, ‘I am grateful.’”

THE DISSOLVING MATRIX ~ Caitlin Johnstone: “Patterns”

“So many of spiritual-type people’s highest values would work fine in a world without sociopaths. Forgiveness, humility, trust, seeing people’s basic innocence, etc., they work fine until you run into a manipulator with no empathy. In this world they require much more nuanced use. Things are getting stranger and stranger. Things getting stranger and stranger is what it looks like when long-fixed patterns begin to dissolve. For a species that has been on a trajectory toward self-destruction, patterns dissolving can only be a good thing. We’ll win this.”

The Imperial Propaganda Machine: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix

“Watchers in the Sky…”

ELVA THOMPSON: “The End Game”

“The matrix mind is blown when we ‘real eyes’… the truth about the manipulation of our genome, the fabrication of our history, and how human beings that once walked the path of interdimensionality became the blood sacrifice, the cannon fodder for an alien species proxy wars… battles between evil and evil. The games are designed for two things — to waste our life in a fantasy world — while in the name of profit, the natural world is being destroyed all around us. And secondly to stimulate the unthinking survival mind of the reptile brain, so we can go on a rampage, beat up our partner, or go on a killing spree… because that is exactly what we are being programmed to do by the media of whatever form. And, the crime of all crimes is that these soulless creatures are targeting children… Does our path in life have a heart or are we cogs in the matrix machine?”

~Elva Thompson

 

Speak I of Ancient Atlantis, speak of the days of the Kingdom of Shadows, speak of the coming of the children of shadows.
Out of the great deep were they called by the wisdom of earth-men, called for the purpose of gaining great power.

Far in the past before Atlantis existed, men there were who delved into darkness, using dark magic, calling up beings from the great deep below us.

The Grand Cosmic Year of twenty-six thousand years ended on December 21st 2012. The auspicious date recorded on the Mayan Calendar when the age of Piscean materialism gave way to the mental Age of Aquarius.

In the reset from the old to the new, the rulers of this construct have paved the way for their vision of a new world order. They have abolished the remainder of our freedoms under the guise of safety and protection; blatantly stolen public lands for the benefit of their political oil and gas money machine, and other anti-life interests that keep them in power. Without a whimper from the public, government officials have scrapped environmental protection, opened up the wholesale slaughter of endangered species, and spied on everything we write and say…and still we sleepwalk through life thinking the future is a promise.

And, while we dream, the ‘smooth savage clean-cut nice guy of TV scenes’, the psychopathic beast that is elected to represent us is feathering its own nest and plotting our demise.

When we consider all the ways we are being betrayed by the elected snake oil salesman that are supposed to represent us… it is breathtaking!

A Spiritual Smack

It’s time the Cosmos knocked some sense into us… make us ‘real eyes’ what’s going on in a ‘whirled’ that seeks to divide us on every level: sex, class, race and creed. On a heart based level, humans are one Nation, one Archetype… so, why have we allowed the programme of Duality, and our inherited thought forms to divide us?

Does our path in life have a heart or are we cogs in the matrix machine?

In the isolation of the ‘special individual’, we have become polarised — controlled by our investment in self to become pawns on the chess board of life, and at the mercy of pull and push governments, out of control dictators, and faceless corporations… entities that have done everything in their power to destroy our spiritual connection to Source Creation… and trample on our hearts.

When we consider all the ways we are being betrayed by the elected snake oil salesman that is supposed to represent us… it is breathtaking!

Constant war, starvation by design, weather manipulation, nano particulates sprayed into our environment to modify our DNA, fluoride in our water, GMOs, vaccinations, glyphosate laced food, the decimation of our wildlife, the deforestation of our planet, destruction of heart based music, and of course sacrificing us on the digital altar of destructive science.

Estranged From Nature

From tribal people free to roam a world without fences and walls, we have been rounded up and put into cities of concrete and glass — shut off from spiritual reality and put in a box along with our thinking.

Researchers from the Douglas Mental Health Institute in Montreal found that city dwellers showed the highest levels of activity in the amygdala, and anterior cingulate cortex of the brain. These complex brain structures regulate emotions, store memories and have been associated with various mental health illnesses including depression, generalized anxiety disorder, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, and phobias…

…in other words mental illness.

We were all aboriginal people at one time — is the forced destruction of our inclusive sonic reality the root cause of our spiritual unease — the cause of our constant searching for meaningful connection with life?

The War on Consciousness

The managers of the human farm: the royal blue bloods and their fawning political errand boys on both sides of the ‘red and blue’ aisle are well aware of how we, the compromised animals called homo sapiens operate. They are up to speed manipulators of our emotions, and are well aware that we as co-creators with Source define our reality by our thinking on an individual and collective basis. Therefore, because our thoughts are electromagnetic extensions of our intent, our rulers can deliberately manipulate and programme our minds with fear and negatively charged information. This negativity is further compounded by blood sacrifice at the energetic centres and sacred places on our planet.

The negative thought forms released by torture and sacrifice go into the energy grid that bathes our third dimensional conflict driven plane, and consequently into the ‘non thinking’ collective hive mind. This ‘hateful vibration’ creates havoc and negative effects in our own lives — and in the life of the planet. In our ignorance we have become prisoners of the black mirror — the looking-glass of our opposite energetic reality.

The world is a scary place when we wake up to the truth about who runs the fractal geometric construct we call earth. The matrix mind is blown when we ‘real eyes’… the truth about the manipulation of our genome, the fabrication of our history, and how human beings that once walked the path of interdimensionality became the blood sacrifice, the cannon fodder for an alien species proxy wars… battles between evil and evil.

It’s hard to deal with… full bloody stop.

The Alien Agenda

The secret alien agenda has always controlled the flow of information on this plane, fomented wars by funding both sides, and created all patriarchal fear based control religions.

It is they who decide what we are taught as ‘truth’ — it gets beaten into us. The bigger the trauma the better… and many never recover from the programming… never claim their right to live their lives. Instead, they adhere to status quo thinking and poison themselves, and sentient reality with unfulfilled lives, hate and resentment.

Social Engineering

The culture of violence that has taken over the world’s stage is a direct result of social engineering. The satanic cabal that runs the show want humanity to turn on itself, to behave like armies of sub-human brutes and turn the planet into a massive killing field. They have turned us into instruments of their own parasitic will, pitted nation against nation, brother against brother, and mother against son.

The Luciferian agenda has attacked us on every level of our being using fear, indoctrinated ideals and a bogeyman of someone else’s thinking. Through lies, misdirection and waving a carrot on a stick in front of our noses, they have led us into slavery, cashed in on our ‘greed and need’ for ‘smart’ everything.

They even control the music we listen to. They make sure that our modern-day songs resonate with the devils chord. Standard tuning A-440 Hz only resonates on the three lower chakras. It is heartless music, purely third dimensional, and a war on spiritual consciousness, all courtesy of the Rockefeller Foundation. Information on A-440hz can be found: medicalveritas.org/musical-cult-control/

Illuminati Much!

It is no accident that the daily dose of information projected at us by the media is inherently violent, divisive and narcissistic. Violence is encouraged even glorified under the bloody banner of patriotism in main stream news’ tv shows, Hollywood films… and let’s not forget video games.

Definition of gamer: a person who plays video games or participates in role-playing games.

According to statistics as of July 2018 there were 2.2 billion gamers in the world… are you shocked? I was.

That is a staggering third of the population playing computer games… games that mirror life….

Games about the picking of sides and a fight for alpha status… to be a winner! Everyone is programmed to want to be a winner just like a male dog pissing on a tree to mark its ‘winning’ territory.

The games are designed for two things — to waste our life in a fantasy world — while in the name of profit, the natural world is being destroyed all around us. And secondly to stimulate the unthinking survival mind of the reptile brain, so we can go on a rampage, beat up our partner, or go on a killing spree…because that is exactly what we are being programmed to do by the media of whatever form.

And, the crime of all crimes is that these soulless creatures are targeting children….

Children at Risk

“As many as 97% of US kids age 12-17 play video games, contributing to the $21.53 billion domestic video game industry. More than half of the 50 top-selling video games contain violence. Violent video games that have been blamed for school shootings, increases bullying and violence towards women. Critics argue that these games desensitize players to violence, reward players for simulating violence, and teach children that violence is an acceptable way to resolve conflicts.” [Source: Procon.org]

And it doesn’t stop there. Now we have untested 5G to contend with.

5G and Mind Control

Here’s an interesting piece of information from CH4 News, Feb 5th, 2001… note the date and imagine how far they have got with their zombifying tech in 2019.

“Mass UK mind control technology and zombification of Britain’s Police has been a reality. The British government spent 2 and a half billion pounds on a 400 MHz pulse modulated microwave transmitter network which broadcast 17.6 Hz into the brains of all Britain’s police and anyone living near the planned transmitters, to be used by the CIA in research in optimal mind-control. The TETRA system will also flood the New York and London underground, so commuters will regularly be exposed to behavioural modification during rush hour.’

But there is nothing to see here for the hive. After all, it’s all for their safety and convenience.

The New World Order for the Next Grand Cosmic Year

The cabal’s end-game is to micro chip us. It should be easy in this convenience now world of sheeple people. Everyone who doesn’t get the game play wants to be superman or superwoman, and will queue up for digital enhancement and, is it possible that this old/new technology will transform their reality into a new matrix?

Remember that to get around Cosmic Law the scum bags have to tell us what they intend to do. Is the film the Matrix their karmic escape route? if so… their agenda is almost a faite accompli and all done in secrecy while we were sleep walking.

Viola! The New World Order will have created a new species of digitally controlled zombie slaves called homo borgiensis.

Coming Out of Denial and Cognitive Dissonance

The evil that has taken root in our minds is energetic and its aim is to disconnect us individually, and as a species from original Source Creator.

For those of us who still have our own mind, it’s time to stand back and take a good look at the concept we call life. Time to start investigating the causes of the hateful, divisive rhetoric that has taken hold of our thinking, and our world… and see if any resonance in that quagmire belongs to Self, and if so, how deeply we are invested in the game.

Go Into the Looking Glass

Reality is dual — there is a physical world and an energetic mirror image and, in the moments of everyone’s now, billions of thoughts… good and bad are creating our reality ‘brick by thinking brick’, on a personal and collective level. Our lives, and the fate of nations are the result of our thinking and its extension action.

Don’t you think it’s time to get our thinking house in order and align ourselves with Life?

There is a lot of hype and expectation about the Age of Aquarius, so lets take a look. Aquarius is the first house in the New Grand Cosmic Year. It is ruled by Uranus, the seventh ray planet of the violet force… the seventh colour of the rainbow. Uranus is explosive, breaking up old thought forms and habits. It is the spiritual wrecking ball that leads us through the restricting rings of Saturn with its cemented traditions and limitations into occult understandings where the hidden is revealed.

Uranus is the planet of spiritual rebellion and redemption…

We are in a time of transition — Uranus will rock the boat of this world and we should expect to see our lives in upheaval, empires rise and fall, and a new order take its place. What that order is… is up to us. It depends upon our thinking.

Uranus… uranium is the force of change on every level of our spiritual awareness and physical existence. It is the cleansing wind of Soul Creation — nothing will be left untouched, and so my fellow travellers it is time to re-forge our links with nature and its kingdoms. Rise above the petty squabbles, the drama, the hate of the hive mind, and be sovereign once again.

We walk this journey on our own, and at this stage of the game, humanity in its divisive vibrational state will never rise to ascension frequency, nor partake of the promise offered by mystical Christianity.

But we can. Let’s align ourselves with life…take care of our little space and become creators of the Beauty Road.

We are on our own walk back to Source Creation. Follow your heart and join the fourth dimensional rebellion.

LISA RENEE (Time Shift Blog): “Imagining World Humanism”

“Disclosure is what is required to end wars, and stop directing covert and overt militant weaponry that is used to mind control the population, as well as perform senseless killing. It is true that based upon the clear evidence of continued violent warring, weaponry and destructive behaviors, some in the Intergalactic community believe the people of the earth are criminals and hybrids that should remain sequestered in this system of consciousness imprisonment. Many are wary and distrustful of the people that come from the earth. I hope someday the people of the earth will rise to change that perception.”

~Lisa Renee

 

We share this world with many other life forms that we can physically see, and not physically see, yet these life forms are not included by mainstream science as life forms having sentient intelligence, or as entities that have souls. How would the ideas of moral nihilism and the death culture be impacted if humans could feel the pain they create in others and feel the suffering consciousness of every living creature? To deeply experience the fear and pain created when that creature is brutalized at the hand of others, to feel the pain of living creatures when they die exposed to extreme states of cruelty.

And to know that this pain and cruelty does not leave when the body is killed, it stays there in the land, in the sentient field right where the act of brutality occurred, until unconditional love cleanses it.

In truth, this is my greatest wish that all humans on the earth that brutalize others through their own destructive actions, could feel the painful results they have created in the world around them. The immense suffering we see in the world is caused by their own choices to repeatedly carry out destructive actions, such as treat people and living things with disdain and cruelty. Once you truly know how intense the suffering, the genetic deterioration and slavery that is caused in this world, a sane person does not want to create any more harm. This has nothing to do with mental judgments of right or wrong, or self-indignant morality — it is a Universal truth.

Imagining World Humanism

Imagine we lived in a world where all people wanted to live in harmony with the Natural Laws and there was no concept of money used as a control system to enslave others. Therefore, all people were treated with love, dignity and respect, to be equally educated in creating balanced and holistic lifestyle with others. Others who also choose to live in a world based in love, peace and unified cooperation, where everyone is supported to actualize their greatest evolutionary potential and inner creative genius.

Imagine we lived in a world where fundamental human needs were the basic right for all people of the earth, and that the global society worked together to co-create a more benevolent and peaceful world, a world without war, mass murder, slavery, religious violence and tyrannical oppression. That the world’s highest goal was to apply humanistic ethical philosophy blended with Universal principles of the Law of One to expand consciousness, which inspires that these Fundamental Human Needs are necessary and to be met for all human beings on the earth.

Imagine that we co-created a world where humanity placed the highest value on ethical conduct in authentic leadership and only allowed those spiritually developed and compassionate people that consistently demonstrated honesty, integrity and trustworthiness in communications and truth telling, who were competent in their areas of expertise, to be of service to the population. Our leadership would not perform actions opposed to their understanding or have understanding or personal knowledge which was used to exploit others. Their personal actions in the outer world would match their true inner self and genuine thoughts. People could see when deception or lies were being presented and so then, people could no longer lie to others. The role of leaders combined activities are coordinated to lead the people to unified goals based on the same core humanitarian values. These true humanitarian leaders and visionaries could help bring in the learning sanctuaries that are available to all people, and would focus on uniting others, wholeness, healing, self-leadership and fulfillment for everyone in the community.

Our learning, healing, creative arts and spiritual sanctuaries would be dedicated towards humanities higher knowledge and furthering consciousness development and exploration, would have unlimited resources to give to the future development of our children, species, and to support the unique purpose and consciousness signature that is inside of each person. Imagine that all people are valued for their unique contribution and from birth, have the available resources to develop and expand themselves in their unique areas of interest or fields of expertise.

Imagine that our communities and societies are founded upon organizational policies and programs that are based in shared humanitarian values of co-creating World Humanism, shaping our communities through modeling behaviors such as:

  • Unified Cooperation and Service to Others
  • Loving Kindness, Compassion and Empathy
  • Respect, Dignity and Harmlessness for All
  • Honesty, Integrity, Truth and Transparency
  • Fairness, Forgiveness and Humility
  • Consciousness Expansion, Higher Learning and Synchronicity
  • Co-creating Responsibly with Earth, nature and animals
  • Legitimate Admittance to participate with the Intergalactic Community

World Humanism is based in the re-education of human value, which emphasizes the importance of shifting anti-human ideological beliefs such as the death culture, into humanist based ethics and related philosophical and egalitarian principles. All human beings deserve humane treatment in order to live upon the planet with dignity, with basic access to meet their Fundamental Human Needs. Our goal is to apply humanistic ethical philosophy blended with the spiritual egalitarian principles of the Law of One to expand consciousness, which inspires direct knowledge or “Gnosis” of direct consciousness and awakening experiences.

Mainstream Humanism defines itself distinctly as the disconnection of the human being from its inherent spiritual-energetic intelligence or Soul, in an attempt to remove the concept of Humanism away from the learned bias and practices of religion. It is impossible to separate humanity from its sentient Soul body, and truly practice an ethical based Humanism aligned to Natural Laws. Once direct knowledge of the sentient soul consciousness is known as a reality, this fact is experienced without the need to control others through religious bias, or conform to religious rhetoric or scientific atheistic judgments.

Ascension essentially encompasses a Universal perspective towards the compassionate practice of World Humanism and includes the entire spectrum of life, of all inhabitants of the world no matter what race, religion, belief or creed, to be equally deserving of benevolence, empathy and compassion.

These are some of the clear examples of how other advanced races beyond our Solar System co-exist and live together, that are actively participating with the Intergalactic community and Interdimensional Free Worlds. The inhabitants of earth are fully excluded, until these global problems of destructive violence and world suffering are directly acknowledged and steps are taken for disclosure. Disclosure is what is required to end wars, and stop directing covert and overt militant weaponry that is used to mind control the population, as well as perform senseless killing. It is true that based upon the clear evidence of continued violent warring, weaponry and destructive behaviors, some in the Intergalactic community believe the people of the earth are criminals and hybrids that should remain sequestered in this system of consciousness imprisonment. Many are wary and distrustful of the people that come from the earth. I hope someday the people of the earth will rise to change that perception.

With a Loving Heart,

Lisa

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE: “32 Tips For Navigating A Society Full Of Propaganda And Manipulation”

“As Carl Sagan once said, ‘It pays to keep an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out.'”

~Caitlin Johnstone

 

For as long as there has been human language, humans have been using it to manipulate one another. The fact that it is possible to skillfully weave a collection of symbolic mouth noises together in such a way as to extract favors, concessions, votes and consent from other humans has made manipulation so common that it now pervades our society from top to bottom, from personal relationships between two people to international relationships between government agencies and the public.

This has made it very difficult to figure out what’s going on, both in our lives and in the world. Here are thirty-two suggestions for navigating this complex manipulation-laden landscape, whether it be for navigating the manipulations you may encounter in your small-scale personal interactions, or the large-scale manipulations which impact the entire world:

 

1 – Understand the fact that humans are storytelling animals, and that whoever controls the stories controls the humans. 

Mental narrative dominates human consciousness; thought is essentially one continuous, churning monologue about the self and what it reckons is going on in its world, and that monologue is composed entirely of mental stories. These stories can and will be manipulated, on an individual scale by people we encounter and on a mass scale by skillful propagandists. We base our actions on our mental assessments of what’s going on in the world, and those mental assessments can be manipulated by narrative control.

2 – Be humble and open enough to know that you can be fooled.

Your cognitive wiring is susceptible the same hacks as everyone else, and manipulators of all sorts are always looking to exploit those vulnerabilities. It’s not shameful to be deceived, it’s shameful to deceive people. Don’t let shame and cognitive dissonance keep you compartmentalized away from considering the possibility that you’ve been duped in some way.

3 – Watch people’s behavior and ignore the stories they tell about their behavior.

This applies to people in your life, to politicians, and to governments. Narratives can be easily manipulated and distorted in many different ways, while behavior itself, when examined with as much objectivity as possible, cannot be. Pay attention to behavior in this way and eventually you’ll start noticing a large gap between what some people’s actions say and what their words say. Those people are the manipulators. Distrust them.

4 – Be suspicious of people who keep telling you what they are and how they are, because they’re trying to manipulate your narrative about them.

Be doubly suspicious of people who keep telling you what you are and how you are, because they’re trying to manipulate your narrative about you.

5 – Learn to see how trust and sympathy are used by manipulators to trick people into subscribing to their narratives about what’s going on.

Every manipulator uses trust and/or sympathy as a primer for their manipulations, because if you don’t have trust or sympathy for them, you’re not going to mentally subscribe to their stories. This is true of mass media outlets, it’s true of State Department press releases which implore you to have sympathy for the people of Nation X, and it’s true of family members and coworkers. Once you’ve spotted a manipulator, your task is to kill off all of your sympathy for them and your trust in them, no matter how hard they start playing the victim to suck you back in.

6 – Be suspicious of anyone who refuses to articulate themselves clearly.

Word salading is a tactic notoriously used by abusive narcissists, because it keeps the victim confused and unable to figure out what’s going on. If they can’t get a clear handle on what the manipulative abuser is saying, they can’t form their own solid position in relation to it, and the abuser knows this. Insist on lucid communication, and if it’s refused to you, remove trust and sympathy. Apply this to people in your life, to government officials, and to 8chan propaganda constructs.

7 – Familiarize yourself with cognitive biases, the glitches in human cognition which cause us to perceive things in a way that is not rational.

Pay special attention to confirmation bias, the backfire effect, and the illusory truth effect. Humans have an annoying tendency to seek out cognitive ease in their information-gathering and avoid cognitive dissonance, rather than seeking out what’s true regardless of whether it brings us cognitive ease or dissonance. This means we tend to choose what we believe based on whether believing it is psychologically comfortable, rather than whether it’s solidly backed by facts and evidence. This is a weakness in our cognitive wiring, and manipulators can and do exploit it constantly. And, again, be humble enough to know that this means you.

8 – Trust your own understanding above anyone else’s.

It might not be perfect, but it’s a damn sight better than letting your understanding be controlled by narrative managers and dopey partisan groupthink, or by literally anyone else in a narrative landscape that is saturated with propaganda and manipulation. You won’t get everything right, but betting on your own understanding is the very safest bet on the table. It can be intimidating to stand alone and sort out the true from the false by yourself on an instance-by-instance basis, but the alternative is giving someone else authority over your understanding of the world. Abdicating your responsibility to come to a clear understanding of what’s going on in your world is a shameful, cowardly thing to do. Be brave enough to insist that you are right until such time as you yourself come to your own understanding that you were wrong.

9 – Understand that propaganda is the single most overlooked and under-appreciated aspect of our society.

Everyone’s constantly talking about what’s wrong with the world, but hardly any of those discussions are centered around the fact that the public been manipulated into supporting the creation and continuation of those problems by mass media propaganda. The fact that powerful people are constantly manipulating the way we think, act and vote should be at the forefront of everyone’s awareness, not relegated to occasional discussions in fringe circles.

10 – Respect the fact that the science of modern propaganda has been in research and development for over a century.

Think of all the military advancements that have been made in the last century to get an idea of how sophisticated this science must now be. They are far, far ahead of us in terms of research and understanding of the methods of manipulating the human psyche toward ends which benefit the powerful. If you ever doubt that the narrative managers could be advanced and cunning enough to pull off a given manipulation, you can lay that particular doubt to rest. Don’t underestimate them.

11 – Understand that western mass media propaganda rarely consists of full, outright lies.

At most, such outlets will credulously publish the things that are told to them by government agencies which lie all the time. More often, the deception comes in the form of distortions, half-truths, and omissions. Pay more attention to discrepancies in things that are covered versus things that aren’t, and to what they’re not saying.

12 – Put effort into developing a good news-sense, a sense for what’s newsworthy and what’s not.

This takes time and practice, but it lets you see which newsworthy stories are going unreported by the mass media and which non-stories are being overblown to shape an establishment-friendly narrative. When you’ve got that nailed down, you’ll notice “Why are they acting like this is a news story?” and “Why is nobody reporting this??” stories all the time.

13 – Be patient and compassionate with yourself when it comes to developing your narrative navigating skills.

Like literally any skill set, you’ll suck at it for a while. If you learn you’ve been wrong about something, just take in the new information, adjust appropriately, and keep plugging away. Don’t expect to have mastered this thing before you’ve had time to master it. Like anything else, if you put in the hours you’ll get good at it.

14 – Find reliable news reporters who have a good sense for navigating the narrative matrix, and keep track of them to orient yourself and stay on top of what’s going on.

Use individual reporters, not outlets; no outlet is 100 percent solid, but some reporters are pretty close on some specific subjects.

15 – Don’t let paranoia be your primary or only tool for navigating the narrative matrix.

Some people’s only means of understanding the world is to become intensely suspicious of everything and everyone, which is about as useful as a compass which tells you that every direction is north. Spend time in conspiracy and media criticism circles and you’ll run into many such people. Rejecting everything as false leaves you with nothing as true. Find positive tools for learning what’s true.

16 – Hold your worldview loosely enough that you can change it at any time in the light of new information.

But, not so loosely that it can be slapped out of your head by someone telling you what to think in a confident, authoritative tone. As Carl Sagan once said, “It pays to keep an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out.”

17 – Speaking of confident, authoritative tones, be suspicious of confident, authoritative tones.

It’s amazing how much traction people can get with a narrative just by posturing as though they know that what they’re saying is true, whether they’re an MSNBC pundit or a popular conspiracy Youtuber. So many people are just plain faking it, because it works. You run into this all the time in debates on online political forums; people come at you with a supremely confident posture, but if you push them to present their knowledge on the subject and the strength of their arguments, there’s not actually anything there. They’re just accustomed to people assuming they know what they’re talking about and leaving their claims unchallenged, and it completely throws them off when someone doesn’t buy their feigned confidence schtick.

18 – Be aware that sociopaths exist.

There are people who, to varying degrees, do not care what happens to others, and these are the types of people who will use manipulation to get their way whenever it serves them. If you don’t care about truth or other people beyond the extent to which you can use them, then there’s no disincentive to manipulating.

19 – Be aware of projection, and be aware of the fact that it cuts both ways. 

Unhealthy people tend to project their wickedness onto others, while healthy people tend to project their goodness. Don’t let your goodness trick you into thinking there aren’t monsters who will deceive and manipulate you, and don’t let sociopaths project their own sinister motives onto you by telling you how rotten you are. This mixes a lot of good people up, especially in their personal lives. Not everyone is good, and not everyone is truthful. See this clearly.

20 – Be suspicious of those who excessively advocate civility, rules and politeness.

Manipulators thrive on rules and civility, because they know how to manipulate them. Someone who’s willing to color outside the lines and get angry at someone noxious even when they’re acting within the rules makes a manipulator very uncomfortable. Often times those telling you to calm down and behave yourself when you are rightfully upset are manipulators who have a vested interest in getting you to adhere to the rules set they’ve learned to operate within.

21 – Meditation, mindfulness, self-inquiry and other practices are powerful tools which can help you understand your own inner processes.

Which, in turn helps you understand how manipulators can manipulate you, and how they manipulate others. Just be sure that you are using them for this purpose, not for escapism as most “spiritual” types do. You’re trying to become fully aware of what makes you tick mentally, emotionally and energetically; you’re not trying to become some vapid spiritual bliss bunny. The goal isn’t to feel better, the goal is to get better at feeling. Better at consciously experiencing your own inner world.

22 – Be relentlessly honest with yourself about your own inner narratives and the various ways you engage in manipulation.

You can’t navigate your way through the narrative control matrix if you aren’t clear on your own role in it. Look inside and consciously take an inventory.

23 – Understand that truth doesn’t generally move in a way that is pleasing to the ego, i.e. in a way Hollywood scripts are written to appeal to.

Any narrative that points to a Hollywood ending where the bad guy gets karate kicked into lava and the hero gets the girl is manufactured. Russiagate and QAnon are both perfect examples of an egoically pleasing narrative with the promise of a Hollywood ending, either by Trump and his cohorts being dragged off in chains or by the “white hats” overcoming the Deep State and throwing all the Democrats and Never-Trumpers in prison for pedophilia. Ain’t gonna happen, folks.

24 – Try to view the world with fresh eyes rather than with your tired old grown-up eyes which have taught you to see all this as normal.

Hold an image in your mind of what a perfectly healthy and harmonious world would look like; the sharp contrast between this image and the world we have now allows you see through the campaign of the propagandists to normalize things like war, poverty, ecocide, and impotent electoral systems which keep seeing the same government behavior regardless of who people vote for. None of this is normal.

25 – Know that the truth has no political party, and neither do the social engineers.

All political parties are used to manipulate the masses in various ways, and nuggets of truth can and do emerge from any of them. Thinking along partisan lines is guaranteed to give you a distorted view. Ignore the imaginary lines between the parties. You may be certain that your rulers do.

26 – Remain always aware of this simple dynamic: the people who become billionaires are generally the ones who are sociopathic enough to do whatever it takes to get ahead.

This class has been able to buy up near-total narrative control via media ownership/influence, corporate lobbying, think tank funding, and campaign finance, and are thus able to manipulate the public into consenting to agendas which benefit nobody but plutocrats and their lackeys. This explains pretty much every major problem that we are facing right now.

27 – Understand that nations are pure narrative constructs; they only exist to the extent that people agree to pretend that they do.

The narrative managers know this, and they exploit the fact that most of us don’t. Take Julian Assange, perfect example: he was pried out of the embassy and imprisoned by an extremely obvious collaboration between the US, UK, Sweden, Ecuador, and Australia, yet they each pretended that they were acting as separate, sovereign nations completely independently of one another. Sweden pretended it was deeply concerned about rape allegations, the UK pretended it was deeply concerned about a bail violation, Ecuador pretended it was deeply concerned about skateboarding and embassy cat hygiene, the US pretended it was deeply concerned about the particulars of the way Assange helped Chelsea Manning cover her tracks, Australia pretended it was too deeply concerned about honoring the sovereign affairs of these other countries to intervene on behalf of its citizen, and it all converged in a way that just so happened to look exactly the same as imprisoning a journalist for publishing facts. You see this same dynamic constantly, whether it’s with military interventions, trade deals, or narrative-shaping campaigns against non-aligned governments.

28 – Understand that war is the glue which holds the US-centralized empire together.

Without the carrot of military/economic alliance and the stick of military/economic violence, the US-centralized empire would cease to exist. This is why war propaganda is constant and sometimes so forced that glaring plot holes become exposed; it’s so important that they need to force it through, even if they can’t get the narrative matrix around it constructed just right. If they ceased manufacturing consent for the empire’s relentless warmongering, people would lose all trust in government and media institutions, and those institutions would lose the ability to propagandize the public effectively. Without the ability to propagandize the public effectively, our rulers cannot rule.

29 – Remember that when it comes to foreign policy, the neocons are always wrong.

They’ve been so remarkably consistent in this for so long that whenever there’s a question about any narrative involving hostilities between the US-centralized power alliance and any other nation, you can just look at what Bill Kristol, Max Boot and John Bolton are saying about it and believe the exact opposite. They’re actually a very helpful navigation tool in this way.

30 – Notice how the manipulators like to split the population in two and then get them arguing over how they should serve the establishment.

Arguing over whether it’s better to vote Democrat or Republican, arguing over whether it’s better to increase hostilities with Iran and Venezuela or with Syria and Russia, over whether you should support the US president or the FBI, arguing over how internet censorship should happen and whomshould be censored rather than if censorship should happen in the first place. The longer they can keep us arguing over the best way to lick the imperial boot, the longer they keep us from talking about whether we want to lick it at all.

31 – Watch out for appeals to emotion.

It’s much easier to manipulate someone by appealing to their feely bits rather than their capacity for rational analysis, which is why any time they want to manufacture support for military interventionism you see pictures of dead children on news screens everywhere rather than a logical argument for the advantages of using military violence based on a thorough presentation of facts and evidence. You see the same strategy used in the guilt trips they lay on third-party voters; it’s all emotional hyperbole that crumbles under any fact-based analysis, but they use it because it works. They go after your heart strings to circumvent your head.

32 – Pay attention to how much propaganda goes into maintaining the propaganda machine itself.

This is done this because propaganda is just that central to the maintenance of dominant power structures. Much effort is spent building trust in establishment narrative management outlets while sowing distrust in sources of dissent. You’ll see entire propaganda campaigns built around accomplishing solely this.
