Connecting the Dots - Truths, Dares and Consequences

"Our country is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction, to wit: by consolidation of power first, and then corruption, its necessary consequence."
-Thomas Jefferson

"The day will come when our Republic will
be an impossibility because wealth will be
concentrated in the hands of a few.  When that
day comes, we must rely upon the wisdom
of the best elements in the country to readjust
the laws of the nation."
-James Madison
 "The duty of youth is to challenge corruption."
-Kurt Cobain

“The more you can escape from how horrible things really are, the less it's going to bother you...and then, the worse things get.” 
-Frank Zappa

Oh no - yet another discourse on power and corruption..
We can get so tired and beat down with simply trying to live, that there is no time to think about having a better life - what other choices do we have? Or, maybe you're just fine, thank you - well, you can go back to regularly scheduled programming - and, please try to help others who are not fine.
Onward - There is a reason so many compelling people warn us of corruption in powerful institutions, all through history, as in the above quotes - but, we go along our daily grinds thinking that there's nothing we can do about it.  Most of us can't go and protest for a few weeks or months, eking out food and water, putting ourselves in danger - Most of us don't have time to research and connect the dots because we're trying to pay the bills and keep a roof over our heads.  If we did have time to research and connect the dots, what are we supposed to do with the information?  Besides, protests only work to the extent that they bring awareness of a situation to a larger section of society - for the most part, they haven't proven to bring about lasting change, so what's the point?

The point is - each individual has the potential for great things - For living a life worthy of the biggest dreams - You feel it - You know what I'm talking about.  What keeps most of us from living the life of our dreams? Fear.  What keeps people from taking any steps towards fulfillment? Fear. So, where does that fear come from?
I have connected some dots for you -  I'm sure there are many other dots, not everyone will agree with what I've lined up here, and who knows what kind of beast will be revealed when I look further in to it over the coming years; but this is how I'm starting...because, I have now given my life up to living the way I want to.  I stopped being afraid of taking chances, what people might think, started taking risks with how I live, not knowing what could happen - and, even though some tough circumstances arise, they rise to push me over the edge of uncertainty into the greatest Security there is: Autonomy - Self Guidance - Love & Trust in a conscious multiverse that governs with more awareness than any human could possibly know (as of yet, anyway).
There is a growing movement of people in developed/capitalist/industrial countries, who have had the time, willingness and energy to break through the fog of a frustrating reality, that keeps a lot of us tethered to livelihoods, needing drugs and distractions to block the mental anguish, just to get through it.  These people have taken that time, willingness and energy to write about it, research it, and give the information freely to others. LINK-This is the first cohesive group of sovereign individuals, from all over the world, aiming to bring about Change. What you do with the information is your choice - but, it can no longer be said that there is nothing you can do. Denial is not an option.  
Here, I will state some facts, sources, consequences and actions you could take- You Do have a Choice.  Even though there are plenty of folks who are aware of what I'm talking about, there are plenty who are not... You can take this in, mull it over and decide for yourself - at the very least, you can share the information with younger generations who may not have to spend their lives in debilitating depression/anxiety or ending their lives by suicide, violently rebelling, or stomping out their own dreams... 

(each numbered statement has a link...)

1. There are some 10-20 families that have been controlling the functionality of 'western world' nations for hundreds of years

They have gone beyond western world nations and in to financially strapped, yet resource wealthy countries to continue their movement toward world domination...  this is a fact, not a theory - it is no longer hidden, even by those very same families. (As an aside, not all members of these families were/are aware of this agenda - and some may well be against it despite their names).  


These families own, organize, and put in place others who operate governments, banks, military, and the businesses that distribute and control money, natural resources, food, technology, pharmaceuticals, news media, and entertainment.

If you think that these families are just go-getters, keen on living the American Dream, having 'made it' - you are wrong. They created the American Dream so you had some kind of hope of reaching that kind of 'prosperity', by working hard, usually for them in some way or another, with or without your conscious knowledge, in what can be termed compartmentalization .  But you were never going to make it, because Money is not the key goal - it's Power. 

Do you really care to control anything or anybody but yourself? 
Probably not.

What are you supposed to do with this information?  By being aware, you have the knowledge and personal power to get outside of it - Start your own business that doesn't have connections to these monolithic cartels - Grow your own food or buy it from local farmers - Support new technologies and green energies - Help your family, neighbours and friends - Create art, music and poetry - Get back to nature, fresh air and not feeling like you always have to Do something - Feel joy whenever possible... but, whatever you do, don't allow any person or state impinge on your personal sovereignty.

2. There has been an alarming increase in mental illness the world over.

Comparison of mental illness in a developing country (Pakistan) and a developed country (Canada)

Why is that?  What are we, as humans, doing wrong, that this is a fact.  Does it really matter why?  This is a symptom of human potential being wasted.  No one needs anti-depressants, mood stabilizers and anxiety medications - People need people who care about them - People need resources and services - People need to relax without having to take a pill or vacation in order to do it.  You know what usually happens when a person stops taking the medication they've been on for decades?  You don't want to know. It's a vicious cycle that needs to be stopped.  Don't give your kids any pharmaceutical - Teach them how to cope, better yet, let them play outside with their friends, in the dirt, and stop being afraid that they will break or get some disease.  The dis-ease is simply not knowing how to live well.

3. There are proven, naturally occurring, remedies and foods that help us with our ailments.

The medicinal knowledge of indigenous people everywhere has just about been wiped out - to make way for factory made, chemically laden tablets, with all sorts of side effects. Even with new science in the search for cures, they are still kept from mainstream knowledge.   


It's a major money maker.  It is well known that humans have great healing ability -yet, many still think that they are not in control of it, so they totally rely on a health system that makes money from unwell people.  Think about it.  This is not to say that health practitioners are not needed, they are wonderful people who dedicate their lives to healing others - so, if we accept that we are all in control of our own personal healing, the weight on nurses and doctors will be well lifted.  A system of holistic care, surrounding each and every one of us, would be a much better option.

4.  There is a deliberate 'dumbing-down' of our population, by a faltering institutionalized education system .

It is much easier to control a population that doesn't know any better.  We are kept in a constant state of paranoia, perpetual apathy and ignorance - We're misled and then wonder what happened.  We have been manipulated into fighting one another over inconsequential differences.  You cannot hand over the education of your children solely to institutions maintaining that perception of reality, and then assume you'll raise some free-thinkers, movers and shakers - All you're going to get are some confused adults who don't know anything other than what they were told; because they weren't given the space, or taught to independently use their intellect.

5.  All religions point back to one fundamental tenet: Do unto others as you would have done to you... We are One.

What is the driving force behind people's desire to understand the underlying question of:  Why are we here?  You might not really care about that, but a lot of other people do.  There is a force to be reckoned with, and that force is called Divine Grace.  When you stop the endless racket playing with your mind - When you stop trying to control everything to the minute detail - When you allow life itself to lead you wherever it does:  You are in that Grace, and realize that there really is no other way to be.

There is another ubiquitous point - now on t shirts, hallmark cards, bumper stickers, and in a self-help book near you - That is: Be in the Present Moment. Well, that's nice... but, Can you Do It? What does it really mean anyway?  It means you don't have to waste your time worrying about things you can't change, or things that haven't happened.  It means you tap into that divine grace, make decisions, take actions or feel a sense of peace - from a place of right now.  Right now is all you're ever going to get.  So, Be in It, and all the corruption, sicknesses, fear and loneliness may stop by to bother you, but you will see them with new eyes - and start thinking there is nothing you Can't do... 

Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

Thanks to my Grandmother, Susie Bertram, for taking the time to discuss life and the world with me - without her encouragement and fastidious nature, I would not have the inquiring mind, or the balls, I do now.

Time to Get Up...

“There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” ― C.G. Jung

There are a lot of people on this planet beginning to wake up from an unconscious sleep - raising levels of consciousness to such an extent that cooperation and tolerance become obvious, and ignorance has no place to hide.  Ignorance, not meaning uneducated, but being unaware of Universal reality.

I'm just one person, out of many, who has been on a path of trying to figure out if our little blue planet, and our place on it, is a random glitch in a vast emptiness, or if there is something else.  What is It, Why are We Here?  There is no class we can take.  It is the school of Life, and whether anyone of us is consciously in it, or not, is up to each of us.  Consciousness cannot be taught because it just IS. Therefore, we can't study it, in the sense that we cannot see our own eyes - only the reflection of ourselves in others, in nature and in silence.  This personal philosophical journey has taken a lot of emotional tolls, because I'm not fully aware myself - All I know is that I've caught glimpses of it, in obscure moments, in religious teachings, in the malleability of time...

~ "Mothering Earth" by Ritchie Sinclair

...in trusting those intangible feelings of Oneness with animals, plants, water, fire, earth, air, stars, sun, moon, joy, people...  We can study scientifically, to explain to each other, what's going on here in terms of mathematics - yet, just as music is felt through the creators, players and listeners, music theory pales in comparison to the beautiful sounds we create and the feelings it invokes.

In Science, new discoveries, as yet to be integrated with classical models, are beginning to point in this same direction - a matrix affected by emotion/awareness/words/ideas... In 1994, Dr. Masuru Emoto began his experiments, by observing frozen water molecules under a microscope before and after various forms of intentional words, prayers, music and the like were exposed to them.

~ the above links to a YouTube Video of Dr. Masaru Emoto's work...

Quantum Entanglement (http://www.livescience.com/28550-how-quantum-entanglement-works-infographic.html) describes the inherent quality of everything being connected, and the idea that an experiment is intrinsically affected by the intention, and the very presence of the experimenter - In essence, suggesting that whatever acts upon one particle/wave instantly influences another particle/wave far away.

“Quantum theory thus reveals a basic oneness of the universe. It shows that we cannot decompose the world into independently existing smallest units. As we penetrate into matter, nature does not show us any isolated "building blocks," but rather appears as a complicated web of relations between the various parts of the whole. These relations always include the observer in an essential way. The human observer constitute the final link in the chain of observational processes, and the properties of any atomic object can be understood only in terms of the object's interaction with the observer.” 
― Fritjof CapraThe Tao of Physics: An Exploration of the Parallels between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism

There is also evidence from ancient cultures (Mayans, Egyptians, Hopi...), pointing to this moment, in a larger cycle of Time, http://ancientexplorers.com/blog/lost-cycle-of-time/ , where humanity has the opportunity to grow exponentially, but we don't really know what that means while immersed in our daily grind. In the bible, there is talk about the return of the Christ (Christ Consciousness = Heightened Awareness).  It is not the return of an individual who will save us - It is the return of ourselves, from a distance that our current concept of time doesn't touch.

Colossians 3:4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Consciousness allows for all sides to be valid, and does not need to convince, because consciousness IS, not Does.  You are a human with individual willpower to act within this rising consciousness. You may be a genius with a 200 IQ, but, without heightened consciousness you are just as easily a fool. This may be hard to take - if you shrug or scowl or click your tongue - you are judging. This type of judgement is unable to happen through heightened consciousness.  When we notice ourselves being smug in our righteousness, we are on the way to learning about ourselves in the light of our own darkness - it is when we are unaware of that smugness, clinging to being right, that we are still running at an unconscious level.

Esoteric knowledge, expressed in many forms - Astrology, Tarot, Archetypes, Ritual, Channeling etc.. also shows us how to tap into this immense awareness -  http://www.wakingtimes.com/2013/05/06/esoteric-knowledge-throughout-time/
- however, those of us with this understanding are either sloughed off as weirdos, or hold powerful positions preferring to keep this knowledge under wraps, in order to control the rest of us who are, as of yet, unaware.  What I still can't figure out is why people with this knowledge would try to keep it from others - it's paradoxical. There are expressed notions surrounding why, conspiracies revolving around secret societies etc..  and you can research any number of them.  It's strange stuff indeed, real nonetheless.

Regardless, we are now each waking up, and it is time to wipe the sleep from our opening third eyes, get out of the proverbial bed, and Live in the Divine.
Awareness is the greatest alchemy there is. Just go on becoming more and more aware, and you will find your life changing for the better in every possible dimension. It will bring great fulfillment.

What is this thing, Civilization?

Canada, do you know: Europeans started colonizing the Americas around the late 15th century - then, for over 300 years, the French and English systematically slaughtered the indigenous people, in massacres too numerous to cite here.  Later, the Canadian government, in partnership with Anglican, Catholic, Methodist and Presbyterian Churches, tried to squash whatever remaining indigenous culture was left by forming residential schools and abducting over 150,000 children from their homes to assimilate them into their new world (attempting to 'civilize' the barbarians). These schools were in operation from the 1870's to the 1990's.

In 2015 North America, the collective fear of karma is rearing up.  The flow of immigrants around the planet is vast - different cultures with other ways of doing things are moving in to unfamiliar places. We are afraid of militant groups like Isis, and their harsh interpretation of Shariah Law, coming here, fighting and forcing us into living their ways - Sound familiar?  

Perhaps our insight into humanity has developed enough to realize that we are one family, albeit with various views about life itself.  Yes, some old practices of certain cultures need to be addressed - not by blatant discriminatory voices, rallying the ignorant, but by a path of education and dignity, aiming to teach and inform about inalienable human rights.

A civilized world is not Us (the civilized) versus Them (the uncivilized) - It is a world of different races, creeds and colours, sitting at the table of mutual respect.  In every culture, there are unacceptable habits and dogmas (like female genital mutilation)- Civilization should mean that we are able to weed out those ideologies that do not serve the greater good of human growth and potential.

We are at a time of unlimited information, with the ability to seek out whatever it is we want to know, whenever we feel like it.  We are no longer tethered to textbooks, 6 o'clock newscasts, and schools of thought forcing their way into our psyche by those who wish to control and standardize.  It is apparent now that old civilizations, including ours, are crumbling under the weight of wisdom and compassion felt by many from all different walks of life - and those who do not recognize it will continue to blame and fear and divide themselves from others.
