The wonderful place the universe has guided me to, Tetbury, is big on celebration of Poppy Day. Most of my life I have abhorred war. There is nothing good about war. As a consequence I have distanced myself from “the military” and chosen to honour the senseless carnage by wearing a white or a purple poppy.
The father I never knew was a Major in the American Air Force, based at Burtonwood, Lancashire during and after the Second World War. Through family, marriages and friends I have never been too far from connections to the Armed Forces.
For personal and global (the scamdemic) reasons, no doubt in common with everyone, my worldview has been drastically altered in the last 12 months. During my lifetime I have “danced” with atheism, agnosticism, organised religion, left and right wing politics, social justice, truth activism and spirituality. I was heavily into left-wing politics in my 20’s and 30’s. No one on the planet has “heard it all” but I can honestly say I have left no stone unturned when it comes to different perspectives on how it all works.
“Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”
If you join the Armed Forces, it is presupposed you are willing to sacrifice your life for “the cause.” That is one hell of a commitment. We can argue interminably as to whether “the causes” are justified, and about the orchestration and creation of any war. The facts are clear. People (mostly men) die fighting wars.
Had I been born in the 1920’s, would I have volunteered to fight the Nazis? Of course I would. It gets a little hazy when we talk about wars in Korea, Vietnam, the Falklands Afghanistan and Iraq.
It gets a little more hazy when we talk about the Ottoman Empire, the invasion of Cyprus, the Armenian genocide, Pol Pot, Stalin and Chairman Mao. There is no doubt in my mind what faces us all on the planet, NOW, is the Chinese model of communism is one of two alternatives, the other being the takedown of the warmongers, the manipulators and the deceivers.
And who is behind this takedown? The US military.
Who knows what the figure is, but let us suggest 95% of the world’s population is clueless about what is at stake. However I suspect a similar figure would (have) support (ed) fighting the Nazis, and fighting tyranny all around the world.
I could quote endless (unbelievable) statistics about how many people were killed by governments in the last century (democide). I could also quote how long there has been world peace (never), and how many countries have been at war during the same period. I can also tell you- sufferers of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) may now leave-that Trump’s administration hasn’t started one war since he came to power and his team have been going around the world brokering peace. He has also taken steps to bring American service men and women home from foreign bases.
My third wife Vanessa’s father, my biological father and my partner’s father were all employed by the military.
Had I walked past the incredible display above 12 months ago I would have dismissed it and muttered my disapproval. Yesterday when I walked past I was moved to tears. As soon as I can I will be buying my red poppy.
One of the most overused clichés is “God works in mysterious ways.” These ways are only mysterious if unexamined and will all ultimately become clear.
How can anyone not grieve (I have always, always felt respect for all those who died “in service” during wars) for someone who has given up their life for a just cause?
A place which will always stir my emotions more than just about anywhere else on the planet is the Souda Bay Cemetery in Crete. My three visits here have always resulted in humility and reverence. As this is written tensions are running high between the Greeks and Turks. I have no doubt the peace brokers are keeping a very close eye on the situation.
Many years ago I was interested in the Japanese martial art of Aikido. Unfortunately three visits to a local group made me realise my body was insufficiently flexible to be able to participate.
So I will close with revealing that Aikido is also known as The Way of Peace.
Lest we forget.

But had they not thought, but felt or intuited, connected to Source, it would have come as no surprise.
Another day, another harvested donor. Gallows humour is a coping strategy. Let us make light of what we can, now; darkness to light.
The odd lyric of long forgotten songs come to mind:
“Where do you go to my lovely, when you’re alone in your bed, tell me the thoughts that surround you, I want to look inside your head…”
Peter Sarstedt, Where do you go to my lovely, 1969.
If you want to get a measure of the quality of the “journalists” feeding you the mainstream narrative, you need to look a little lower than the head. Anyway not to worry Jeffrey Toobin is only CNN’s chief legal analyst.
I suspect just about everyone reading this finds it almost impossible to step into the shoes of liars, masturbators, paedophiles, Satanists and those demonically possessed.
The problem that remains is that when they are ALL exposed- there appears to be millions of them-what happens?
We talk about the 1%, the 1% that controls the world. I’ve recently seen a graphic that suggests 4% of the global population does the controlling group’s dirty work. A quick calculation reveals a figure of 280 million. The current global prison population is 11 million.
A lot of work for someone.
Some of us have spent decades steeling ourselves to what is really going on, what we have been taught and told, what we are being taught and told and what we are not being taught and told. How much can we take? How much can YOU take?
We know what happened to Jesus when he tried to promote a doctrine of peace and love and how he attempted to expose the Demons of his day. Here are a few names and groups for you:
- The Essenes
- The Cathars
- Joan of Arc
- Giordano Bruno
- Nikola Tesla
- Royal Raymond Rife
- Ronald Reagan
- JF and Bobby Kennedy
- Martin Luther King
- John Lennon
- JF Kennedy Jr
- Princess Diana
- Michael Jackson
- David Kelly
- Dr Gerd Hamer
- Rik Mayall
- Julian Assange
And of course there are millions more we have never heard of. Compare these contemporary giants and giants of history to the vacuous, talentless and truly pointless “celebrities” forced on us by the media. In the UK, presenter Phillip Schofield is a “hero” for coming out as gay after living a lie and deceiving his wife for 20 years. Process that.
By their heroes shall they be known…
This is a very short blog post. If it serves any purpose it is this. As the whole edifice crumbles, the infinite number of veils are removed and Demons run for cover, unless you feel confident not only to process it yourself but to educate those around you, start now.
Start now, even as a truth activist, to have a strategy, not only for the horrors but particularly for the elation.
Where We Go 1 We Go All.
Much love, Jack Stewart, October 20, 2020.
I’m very blessed to know a number of people with “special” talents. We all have special talents but given the inverted nature of reality only a few are able to develop and use them. I would exclude myself from this category; however, at the earliest possible age I became aware that the world was not as it should be.
Seven decades of socialisation, and seven decades of swimming against the tide have brought me to this point. The search for truth using an overdeveloped left brain, and being a recovering academic have allowed me to “enjoy” a dance with the unlimited right brain, spirituality and infinity.
We are now, Autumn 2020, at the very brink of the most cataclysmic change humanity has ever seen. Many have alluded to this, but in common with almost all prophecies, the exact timing has always been difficult to pin down.
We all know that the best prophets and visionaries will fade away, as the impact of their prophecies induces desired action and awakening. These subsequent actions often skew any suggested timeframe.
I have always subscribed to the practice of challenging everything. The downside of this may be obvious. It can dilute faith in truth and it can erode belief when continuously challenged.
The behemoth that is the Illuminati/Deep State/Cabal has always controlled the narrative in terms of physical reality and the psychology of perception. We know this.
And despite the fact we have been told we only need around 144,000 people to “wake up”, this has always seemed to me a pipedream. No matter what direct or spiritual action light workers could take, 99% of the global population would always be in a permanent state of delusion as long as their worldview was created by the Satanic elite.
Ironically, reading Karl Marx many years ago, one of the key ideas he promoted was the idea of false consciousness. How right he was. He talked about peasants being like “potatoes in a sack.” Right again. Marx is now, and soon forever, history.
If I were to tell you that I haven’t wobbled during the course of the last six months I would be lying. Despite the fact the mainstream media is incapable of telling the truth, when the lies never stop, when the impact of the lies are made manifest through mask wearing, anti-social distancing and incessant hand washing in makes it very difficult to stay grounded and centred. Since the mask “mandate” I have come across three people out of thousands who have not worn masks in shops. It is very challenging.
No doubt what has kept us all sane is the small, but growing daily diet of truth. We don’t need signs on the street, arrows on shop floors and pavements, traffic diversions, endless, utterly unbelievable reminders in every shop window to wear satanic symbols of slavery, conscious and unconscious propagandists on every conceivable media 24/7/365 to get our message over.
Imagine if the truth had this kind of arsenal!
Perhaps we have more powerful “weapons” at our disposal…
We have won. At last the forces of light have triumphed. We are on the home straight.
The voice in my head which I heard over 65 years ago has now become reassuring, as opposed to doubting, challenging and occasionally (temporarily) full of despair.
The incredible technologies which can be used to heal and transform rather than enslave and destroy await their unveiling. What will we do with our ever expanding freedoms that “they” tried to take away from us permanently? What will the 99% who bought the lies, the suppression, the lives of quiet desperation and enjoyed Stockholm Syndrome do now?
I suspect, along with almost all true spiritual seekers, we will not expect thanks or apologies from the sleepers for their ignorance occasionally leading to vitriol and condemnation.
Let us imagine the sleepers are prodigal sons and daughters and welcome them home.
Here’s another Covid denier and cult follower signing off.
Love, Jack Stewart, September 28 2020.
Such are the emotions generated by the mere mention of Donald Trump’s name that I will confine myself to an issue seemingly central to truth activists and spiritual seekers.
Is Trump our saviour?
My search for the truth began over 60 years ago, and no doubt what triggered it were the circumstances of my birth, hidden from me at the time, adoption. Attempts to come to terms with global, corporate and individual corruption took many forms but the mention of my background and history is relevant only to the wider question.
David Icke no doubt began his journey at a similar time (we are the same age, but the main focus in his case was 30 years ago) and I have read almost all of his books. His courage and persistence are legendary and his role in revealing the nature of the matrix is second to none. David Icke, following his appearance on the Terry Wogan show, was subjected to levels of abuse no one can imagine. As a consequence, rising above it all, he developed an amazingly resilient personality. I will always remain follower and supporter of this man; he is a gift to all sentient beings.
Icke was and is divinely inspired.
So, what do we do, the “truthers” faced with low-level resistance, incredulity and denial from the sleeping population? I know it can get more intense, especially on social media, but we carry on.
Since the plandemic, and well before, my daily visits to David Icke’s website were met with a host of educational and informative articles, but it seemed like to me an increasing amount of doom and gloom. I let go of my post-awakening depression two weeks after reading Icke’s first non-spiritual book, Robots Rebellion, in the early 90’s. Icke’s advice to realise we are spiritual beings of limitless potential having a human experience, to raise our vibration, to let go of the ego and our attachment to this world are universal truths.
The problem is most people dismiss him, without reading a single word he has written, and these universal truths as pie in the sky nonsense. We are aware of the relentless and insidious programming which keeps people asleep and in the dark, but for just about everyone the “sleepers” are our family and friends.
Here’s a rhetorical question. Did anyone know how wide and deep the swamp was? How were we going to get from the realisation shown to us by David Icke and others (notably Alex Jones, Michael Tellinger, Jeff Rense, David Wilcock, James Gilliland…) to a New Earth? Whilst we know this is a spiritual war, even the most “enlightened” amongst us have to live out our lives on a three-dimensional earth plane.
I regard myself as a reasonably strong human being, but I will admit to not having the strength and conviction that many, if not all, of the others referred to above possess. I have friends, wonderful decent people, who do not seemingly (they do of course) have it within them to raise their profile dramatically and shout the truth from the rooftops. And if we default to a spiritual solution, the solution lies within. In the stillness everything happens.
So, we just sit back, let it all unfold and allow Trump to be the saviour of humanity. But of course we don’t. There are 1000 ways in which we can add our voice, our strength and our support to what is going on. It never was and never will be a question of letting Trump save us all. Unless you want to find a cave, go off grid, and stay in the cave until it is all over.
Sitting quietly, going inside, and sending out light, expanding your heart torus to your family, your friends, your neighbourhood, your town, your region, your country and the world will make a difference.
Imagining, assuming and above all else feeling what it is like to live in a world free of Demons and all the truly appalling and sickening practices we all have increasingly tolerated over decades has the potential to free the world as more and more engage in this process.
We do not want rose tinted glasses to become the new masks, but if rose tinted glasses represent liberation and masks oppression, perhaps we do.
As you continue loving your family and your friends, tolerate those who are still asleep. But never allow yourself to be cowed or compromised by the siren “woke” voices or those suffering from Stockholm Syndrome. If they wish to enjoy their servitude then so be it. I cannot subscribe to the calculated ignoring of global paedophilia. It sickens me. The colour of a child rescued from a cage underground is an irrelevance. Their sexual orientation is an irrelevance. Bombs do not discriminate on the basis of colour. Removing statues and reminders of an imperfect history condemns us to repeat it. Popular culture has been warped for decades. It is trivial, sensationalist, mind-numbingly repetitive, and with few exceptions is corrupting and as John Lennon would have it, insane.
Everyone reading this knows what to do. Merely reading this tells me and tells you that you are aware and are awake. By being awake your “vibration” lifts others. By being optimistic about the future, by refusing to join those willing to jump off the virtual (in some cases literal) cliff, to comply and to follow a life of servitude, you are one of the “White Hats.”
One of my friends organises weekly walks in his local community. The walks are a celebration of nature, a celebration of companionship and they lift the spirit. He is no fan of Donald Trump, and he is a partial subscriber to the mainstream narrative. And yet in his own way he is making a huge contribution. Long may he continue.
Trump and the Patriots/White Hats, are leading the change. Did anyone expect that liberating the planet from eons of evil and darkness would happen overnight? How was this change going to come about? An instantaneous shift? Jesus on horseback coming over the hill? A plan and leadership was necessary. We have that.
We all have our role to play. We all know what is right and what is wrong. Mainstream and cultural conditioning has blurred everything. No it is not right to joke about “killing Whitey.” It is not right for white, privileged, hysterical rioters to scream and shout at black policemen and women. I recall someone who I admire greatly, Douglas Murray, an outspoken critic of cancel culture and wokeness, talking about forgiveness. Forgiveness is absent from the mainstream narrative. As is morality.
Let anyone who is perfect criticise Donald Trump. Were Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi paragons of virtue? If you do your research you will find they were not. Every single person on this planet is a work in progress.
Trump is the representation of all that is good, that is godly and that is strong and courageous. He is also the representation of imperfection, of human failings, idiosyncrasy, ignorance and occasional arrogance. Trump is leading a team.
I challenge anyone reading this, anyone at all, to conduct themselves calmly and responsibly at press briefings populated by rabid, programmed, system-serving haters. You cannot, I cannot and no one could put up with the abuse indefinitely.
But I am wandering now into a defence of Trump and all his works.
To me enclosing it is all very simple. If we lose this, we lose everything. I could not stay in a world of depravity, debauchery, gender fluidity, lies and deception, greed, intolerance, ignorance and devoid of all hope. As the mask slips, all is revealed. But I won’t have to, and neither will you.
Trump is not the Messiah, but Trump is leading the charge. Do your bit, and that is enough.
And did I mention projection? Everything Trump is accused of is what the “opposition” are doing themselves…
Love to you all, Jack Stewart, September 16, 2020.
Many years ago very good friend of mine, a man who has his finger firmly on the global pulse, made a couple of statements. Firstly that the media, mainstream of course, creates reality for 95% of the global population, and has to be addressed. Secondly he talked about discernment.
Discernment is the ability to judge which things of a particular kind are good and which are bad.
Who do we trust? Who benefits? What are the consequences of buying into a particular narrative? For ourselves, other people and humanity?
As we know the overwhelming majority are not discerning. The mainstream narrative is accepted uncritically and mostly unconsciously. I am not pointing the finger at anyone here, as I swallowed the media narrative about Donald Trump until the Covid thing broke. I have spent most of my life researching, and seeking the truth. But how I fell for this one!
Does what you are reading about the world now resonate with you? If what you are watching makes you feel uncomfortable is it the person who is saying it, what they are saying or the fact that what is being revealed challenges you? Can you recall times in your life when someone has told you an unpalatable truth? How did you react? Deny it and attack them? Feel guilty and spend the next few days being miserable but ultimately dismiss the truth? Or perhaps you realised deep down what was being said was true. And then you proceeded to act on that truth.
I cannot believe there is a person who is conscious who has not had this experience.
Change can be painful, and few of us welcome it, especially when it comes at an inconvenient time, which of course it always does.
And many of you know the old cliché, which unfortunately for us all is true, the bigger the lie the more people will believe it. This was attributed to Hitler or his propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels.
What we are all going through now on this planet, and isn’t it incredible that it affects everyone, is a time to re-examine our personal lives and beliefs and how much of what we are being told by governments and the mainstream has any basis in truth. No s*** Sherlock!
People have accused people like me of wasting our lives by seeking out what is “real”. If you follow what is going on in America in particular you will now see an epidemic of Trump haters accusing him of what they are doing themselves. Social justice warriors (and I used to be one) scream in people’s faces (I never did nor could ever do that) about intolerance and injustice. Trolls on social media do the same. Another cliché. When you point your finger at someone else three fingers are pointing back at you.
How does anyone deal with the statement “everything you have been told is a lie?” It’s too big, too threatening and for that reason can instantly be dismissed. I thought I had a pretty good idea of the extent of the evil in this world. I’ve heard some unbelievable accounts of depravity from my clients. I have read many books, watched many videos. However I find accounts of cruelty to children and animals very difficult to process. When helping a client who has suffered a personal nightmare, I’m rarely fazed by it. Why? Because they have come to me for help and I help them. I have done something about one person’s encounter with evil. Sitting here, writing blog posts, signing petitions and donating to charities has some impact. But it cannot immediately impact on an account or an image of depravity posted on the Internet. I am empowered when helping a client and am relatively powerless reading about human trafficking.
Or am I?
Do I succumb to the media narrative that there is no such thing as human trafficking? Do I ignore the likes of Jimmy Savile, Harvey Weinstein, Brian Epstein, Ghislane Maxwell and the statue outside the BBC’s Broadcasting House (created by a paedophile, Eric Gill) as isolated and exaggerated incidents?
We all know about cognitive dissonance. How something in front of us contradicts our worldview. We ignore or deny it.
As above, so below.
Those of us in the autumn of our lives have been abused, betrayed, abandoned and lied to at a personal level. To a greater or lesser extent we have done that to other people. Surely from a personal point of view our goal must be to leave this planet a better person? By becoming a better person we help everyone around us. And by helping everyone around us we help humanity, the planet and all sentient beings.
I’ve said many times when I begin these blog posts I often end up somewhere I hadn’t anticipated, simply because I feel wisdom flows through me, it is not my creation.
So here’s my yardstick, and it’s no more mine than anything else, it is a universal truth.
If those who attack you, or those who tell you lies are acting out of a belief that their actions and words are designed to help them become a better person then you are making progress. Because they are not.
How do you know what is a lie and what is the truth? Does it resonate? What kind of feeling does it give you? Is it something you feel in your heart? If you go inside/meditate what do your impressions tell you?
It is both complicated and very simple. Who benefits from wars, disease, poverty, riots, screaming abuse, deceit and ridicule of others? Who benefits from placing one group above another? Who benefits from being a victim?
One of the many amazing gifts I got from working with male survivors of sexual abuse many years ago was this.
Not one person I worked with saw themselves as a victim. Yes they wanted justice, yes some of them wanted to do unspeakable things to their abusers, and yes many wanted compensation for having their lives destroyed. Rightly so. However, to a man, they called themselves survivors. And having escaped that living hell they were right. They survived.
Many of them eventually let go of the label survivor. I am in no way trivialising their nightmares, but I have survived two near-fatal car crashes and three serious motorbike crashes. That was then and this is now. I am not a survivor. I survived. They are not survivors, they survived.
Having processed and let go of this nightmare my clients are no different to me. Or you.
We are not our history; we are not our biological spacesuits. If these two aspects of living on the earth plane have to be engaged to raise awareness, to secure justice then so be it.
Yes perhaps everything we have been told is a lie. Parents in the Western world are now waking up to the reality that their children are having lies told to them under the guise of “education” about race and gender.
If 2020 is the year in which the forces of good defeat the forces of evil, and it is, then let us all look inside ourselves with discernment.
Wouldn’t it be fascinating if we created our individual and collective reality instead of the corrupt mainstream media?
Love to you all, Jack Stewart, 9/11/2020.
“Reality is an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
Attributed to Einstein.
It’s easy to become distracted, after all people often spend their lives consciously distracting themselves through all kinds of means to avoid the painful reality of their existence or wanting to let go of their past. In truth we all do it to a greater or lesser extent.
Spiritual teachings and enlightened personal development organisations like the HeartMath Institute exhort us to “drop into the heart.”
I know that, along with almost everyone these days, the “reality” which surrounds us is profoundly depressing and seemingly without end. It is like an invisible dead hand crushing any hope and optimism we have. Many of us also know that if enough people Feel the Wish Fulfilled of a new Earth, it will come about.
The mainstream bias and media narrative is hiding in plain sight. I can’t believe anyone who is reading this post buys fully into the Government/BBC/CNN etc. narrative. However it is difficult not to buy into some of it, simply because the persistent illusion is more comforting than the truth.
My own introduction to this life was in the eyes of my parents, a secret that had to be maintained. I blame them for nothing, they were wonderful parents and like everyone else acted in what they saw as my and their best interests. I’ll never know whether I “signed up for” truth activism prior to incarnation or it was a consequence of being encouraged to always look outside of myself for answers.
To this day I believe in the ideals of justice, fairness and the wonderful words enshrined in the US Declaration of Independence. For most of my life I had never bought into the God thing.
Our first encounter with other human beings is with our family. I’m well aware that a minority, perhaps larger than I can imagine, are not born into a family. That family may be extended and/or be part of a community. A country is a collection of communities. God help us all (I’m a believer!) if the day ever comes that we regard the state as our parents.
Anyone who takes the time to study psychology knows that the most significant influences on our lives, especially during the first 6-7 years, are those who raised us. We also know that all kinds of trauma, accidental and deliberate, have a massive impact. Add to the mix the contemporary cultural conditioning of entitlement, victimhood and unlimited aspiration unsupported by the necessary talent or effort and we have an unbelievably dangerous cocktail. If you doubt that pay a visit to the American cities currently being ravaged by rioters.
I have repeatedly said on this site that a notional hierarchy of suffering helps no one. Few people- it is still far too many-have suffered the kinds of depravity at last being reported in the media. There are glaring and massive exceptions (human trafficking and sexual abuse) to a situation in which one person’s trauma is another person’s inconvenience. Having worked with male survivors of sexual abuse many years ago, there is not a single person I would wish their nightmares upon save for their perpetrators. I believe it is called justice.
Where is all this leading to?
A number of commentators have observed that “privileged” young people involved in the US riots are operating out of a position of personal trauma, and I would have to agree.
There is hope. There is always hope.
We are all here on this earth for a reason. It would take virtually all the earth’s resources to help all 7 billion of us to realise what that purpose is. What will it take, what does it take for people to wake up to the reality that we are spiritual beings having a human experience?
Marxism- I was a Marxist for many years- denies the existence of God. That you cannot go to church during this plandemic, that God has been under attack for many years and that hell on earth surrounds us should tell you all you need to know.
I will leave you with a quote from one of my favourite sources,the Joseph Communications. In this case is from Trance Mission (Band of Light Media 2019).
“You are an angel. You are an angelic being. You have been coming here for some time and you come here repeatedly with different sets of ‘clothes’ in order to experience. And the amount of time you are here is dependent on the amount of challenges you can face versus the effects of the Field in being detrimental to your body.”
If you want to know about the Field, find out from the Joseph website.
My one line answer to just about every problem has always been love. Love is the answer, Love Heals. It is and it does. But life is a little more complicated than that at the moment. So, step into your angel persona, rise above the static of the propaganda and the insanity.
But remember to wear your mask.
Love to you all, Jack Stewart, August 28, 2020.
We are doing the best we can during an unprecedented time. I’m not the most disciplined person, and my calling is all about change. Helping people change, helping organisations change.
However we need some certainty in our lives. Over the last few weeks and months it has become obvious how much I personally have depended on certain routines. Parking my car down a certain side street. Watching truth videos on television. Sharing my time with others. Each one of these has been disrupted in the last few days and (it’s all right now) it has amazed me how much pain (who would have thought?) has ensued.
Just about everybody I know has routines, disciplines and practices to a greater or lesser extent, usually relating to their personality.
I thought I was almost immune to concerns over routine disruption, but such is the background “noise” from the psychological attacks on us all that the noise can deafen.
What can we do about this noise? The first thing is to acknowledge how it affects us, and this is true of every single issue that concerns us. Denial and avoidance store up trouble. So I’ve acknowledged it.
Next? More routines, more distraction? No.
Talking about it to others? Yes this helps, but if it’s all you do you are back into avoidance. Give this a go. Feel your connection to a loved one. The loved one may be alive or in spirit. If you cannot be with your loved one for whatever reason, this is even more important. So perhaps in some ways the most significant thing you can do is connect to Source. Source? God, the universe, a higher power, nature. Take your pick.
Can you do this instantly? Some of you may do so, but for the rest of us it takes time, just like it has taken time for you to establish your routines. I leave you with this thought from someone who knew what she was talking about. Princess Diana as channelled through my late wife Anne Stewart:
“When you think you are powerless, and can’t move on and may be stuck, just connect to God and you will feel that wonderful power.“
Forget about staying safe, it’s propaganda, and of course work (arbeit) makes you free. Empower yourself, empower others.
Love to you all, Jack Stewart, August 3, 2020.
When I was a teenager one of my friends had rather interesting parents. If you are into class, you would probably put them at lower middle. My friend had three sisters, two of which were twins. He went on to become a pilot and his sisters were all very successful.
They were a wonderful family, and although I found his mother a little pushy at times, I was intrigued by the “culture” that had been generated. My friend was very competitive, and although I was little less so, you could call us both “achievers.”
I’ve mentioned in a few places my own father. His work was mundane, soul destroying and an insult to the man’s talents. He worked in the same factory for 48 years. Outside of work he was incredible. If he set his mind to do something, he did it, and was often the best (championships, awards etc.) in his peer group.
In her 88 years my mother was ill twice. Once with food poisoning from shrimps, the second when she contracted flu (we didn’t have Covid in 2002) two days before she passed to spirit. My dad would have lived 10 to 15 years longer had he not smoked.
They were, in their own way, wonderful role models.
Politically I was always on the left. To this day I will condemn any form of discrimination. I have wanted to change the world since I became conscious (sorry for regular readers of these posts you must be sick of hearing this). My friend has always been on the right. Recently he got in touch with me and regularly sends me links to freedom/right-wing (take your pick) websites. Even though we’ve only seen each other a couple of times since we were kids, clearly our friendship has endured.
- Who is a victim?
I have certainly suffered discrimination for not having the right accent, background and connections. Being rather well educated, having a Master’s degree and at one time being a university lecturer has served to overcome this ludicrous nonsense. Yes, I was one of a couple of people to go to university from my area in 1970. Unconsciously and consciously I never thought I was good enough despite getting very good grades at ‘O’ and ‘A’ level.
My partner was the first person in her family to go to university.
In the hierarchy of privilege, I’m obviously at the top. As a white woman she is second tier.
Elsewhere in these posts, and at length in my book, Love Heals, I have mentioned the law of attraction and the process of feeling the wish fulfilled. Also addressed is the issue of self-worth/esteem and the dominance of the subconscious mind in our daily behaviour. Although the “wokers” have weaponised “unconscious bias”, they are actually on to something.
If you are raised in a supportive environment, have good role models, are taught how to learn, how our beliefs become our biology, learn about the processes in the last paragraph and are encouraged to value yourself whilst taking full responsibility then I would say there is virtually nothing you cannot achieve. And while some of these may have been missing from my friend’s upbringing many were present.
We do not live in a meritocracy; racism is a fact of life. As is sexism. There are many overt and subtle barriers to “success” and living a fulfilled life. But these barriers can be overcome.
Most of humanity is wired for compassion, healing, love, tolerance and achievement. The current toxic climate of victimhood that we live in is like walking past a deep hole and seeing someone at the bottom. We have access to a rope. Instead of holding on to one end and throwing it down enabling the person to climb out, we throw the rope down, jump in ourselves and are assaulted by the person in the hole who claims oppression is justification for his/her actions.
Victimhood is a recipe for catastrophe. To gain any kind of satisfaction from hysterical denunciation of anyone you perceive as less of a victim than you are is a form of mental illness. Or a deliberate policy on behalf of a sick and twisted ruling elite.
It is impossible for love and victimhood to co-exist. We have all suffered. Everyone of us. Another theme on this site and in the book is trauma. Most of us are suffering from some form of trauma. We can never release it or overcome it by playing the victim.
We begin this life as a dependent being. Our “filters” are necessarily in the first few years of our life massively biased towards ourselves. For some they stay for life. The next level of “belonging” is our family. Not everyone has a supportive and functional family. The challenge that faces us all is to change this. You could say, and this is neither a model nor a theory, that the next level may well be our town, our local sports club affiliation or even our county or state. As we move up, we may well then identify with our country. Beyond that we identify with the world. Who knows, many people identify as consciousness, as (temporary) beings in an infinite universe or multi-verse. Perhaps you identify as a soul.
Who can argue that the biological spacesuit we inhabit has advantages and disadvantages? Does it define us? It does if we allow it to do so.
For everything that divides us, race, gender, sexual orientation, class, religion etc., a compelling, overriding counterargument can be made for that which unites us.
We live in a world of toxicity. Electromagnetic fields, chemtrails, what we eat and drink, the air we breathe and the polluted environment are all evidence of that.
How can all this be changed?
It’s so obvious I’m not going to insult your intelligence.
Most of which appears above I have done to death. However only recently have I realised that the/my empowerment message has found an unlikely home in the global changes being driven from the USA. And only recently have I started to wake up to the fact that factionalisation, victimhood and all its camp followers will have to wake up themselves. Very soon.
Thank you John, you and your family influenced me far more than I ever knew.
For the better of course, but never blindly, never unquestioningly, never without reflection. My parents taught me that.
Love as always, love heals. Jack Stewart July 10, 2020.
“I cannot think of a single psychological problem that is not traceable to a poor self-concept. Positive self-esteem is a cardinal requirement of a fulfilling life.”
Dr Nathaniel Branden, How To Raise Your Self-Esteem.
And I cannot believe there is a single person reading this post who can disagree with the above statement and is themselves 100% free of this curse. Because we have spent most of our lives with this issue it is not going to go away with some kind of psychological magic trick. Indeed what am I about to say applies to life.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the education system put self-worth and self-esteem above the “3R’s”? Having high self-esteem is the opposite of being unaccountable, having no boundaries, declaring you are right and everyone else is wrong, and expecting the world to beat a path to your door. Having high self-esteem is contagious; it is all about love, it is- what an incredible phrase- about living consciously.
“To live consciously means to seek to be aware of everything that bears on our actions, purposes, values, and goals, and to behave in accordance with that which we seek and know.”
Dr Nathaniel Branden.
I suspect it is very similar to mindfulness, except more so. This is far too short a post to generate a checklist few will abide by to raising your self-esteem. And I’m loathe always to insult anyone’s intelligence. Another idea put forward by Branden is the counter to self-acceptance, self-disowning, which is in essence having an adversarial response to your own experience. Isn’t this insane? Disowning yourself?
Self-acceptance is realising that the totality of you, your body, your personality and your circumstances now and from birth is the hand you chose or were dealt. It is the metaphorical equivalent of looking in the mirror and saying “I accept myself, I love myself and I realise I am not perfect but a work in progress and am developing myself.”
The world we are currently encountering is creating a hundred new challenges a day. We are all being challenged to change the way we think and to align ourselves with causes that are rooted in fear or rooted in love. Being conscious, being accepting of who you are in the moment is the best possible way of navigating your way through. And for the loved ones around you who are looking for positive role models I would suggest you have an obligation to provide it.
Thank God it is within our power to change.
There is no-one, unless they hold a gun to your head or your principles are for sale, who can change you without your consent. Yet always bear in mind you are driven by your subconscious mind and that subconscious mind may have remained unexamined since birth. And especially if like just about everyone on the planet you experienced some kind of trauma as a child.
If I said what follows next a hundred million times it would never be enough.
IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE LIKE THIS!
Start to live authentically; have the courage to be who you are and have the awareness to realise the effect you are having on others. Closing yourself down (self-disowning) is a wonderful way of living a life of quiet desperation and being totally (wilfully) ignorant of your impact on other people. Just because something is a cliché doesn’t make it untrue. Everybody loves somebody. In loving yourself what you are doing is giving that someone love of the highest value.
So, before you give up on yourself, saying “Well that’s me, take it or leave it.” consider the idea that how you leave this world might be how you enter the next.
And lastly, for those of you who are more than concerned about your health and your appearance, having high self-esteem will affect how you look, how you hold yourself, how you move, how you feel, how you speak and how you progress through the world.
If I have failed to give you at least one reason to pay attention to your self-esteem and self-worth so be it. Anyone can be healed, not everyone can be healed.

We rise by lifting ourselves.
