Moving to 5D…

I’m a quarter of the way through my latest book, You are Gods. I’m writing a chapter on “5D consciousness” and came across this amazing piece. I think it’s the best short description of the direction in which humanity is collectively heading when the swamp is finally drained. Or maybe moving to 5D consciousness is what drains the swamp…

“You can’t experience 5D through your physical senses; it’s beyond all of those. You cannot touch, taste, smell, hear or see 5D, and this is part of what makes even beginning to comprehend 5D so difficult. Human beings are visually-oriented, which works just fine in the physical realm, but is actually kind of a hindrance when it comes to 5D. 5D cannot be understood with the limited mind, though 5D can be felt through Consciousness. The mind is restricted to 4D, it cannot go beyond because the mind itself is a 4D entity.
You also cannot have a memory of 5D, since memories are 4D constructs as well. You may have a memory of a transcendent experience, but the actual 5D connection is only truly felt in this Present Moment. Any memory you have is a reflection of the experience. So what is 5D? Well it’s not a “what” or a “where”, 5D is not a thing. 5D is beyond time and space; it transcends our entire idea of linear thinking.

Love, transcendent and unconditional Love, (Agape, read Love Heals) not the desire-based thing (Eros) that many people call “love”, is how you connect with 5D. True Love is a deep, heart-based connection; it’s a feeling of Oneness. This is the beginning of understanding 5D. There’s often talk about the difference between being and doing, and 5D is simply being.

5D isn’t known with the mind, it’s felt through the soul. Less thinking and more feeling. It’s when the mind is quiet that you can feel 5D, as the fifth dimension (as well as all the other ones) are never separate from you. When you’re in that dimension, nothing is separate until there is the intention to create that. It’s like space and time is still until a consciousness creates the experience of time or forward motion. The fifth dimension is a realm of instant manifestation from the heart. There is no clouded ego, your intentions are clear for everyone to feel.

You create your reality – like we’re doing now, only it’s completely conscious. The understanding of the fundamental structure of reality is required to play in the higher playgrounds. It’s a Connection you already have through your own soul, and it’s through going deep within yourself that 5D is realised. Through realisation of your own Multi-Dimensional Nature, you can bring the Peace and stability of 5D into all aspects of your Life.”

The Church of Love

A Church of Love – The Cathar Prophecy of 1244 CE

MONTSEGUR, THE LAST STRONGHOLD OF THE CATHARS

The last prophecy of the Cathars was that the Church of Love would grow from our combined cultures, places and lands, like seeds, ignited with love and carried with the winds and water. And don’t get confused over the word ‘church’, because it means ‘communion’ – ecclesia in Greek, nothing more. The church represents coming together in community, in a sangha, and sharing the seeds of love, compassion and understanding. 

The Church of Love

It has no fabric – only understanding.

It has no membership – save those who know they belong.

It has no rivals – because it is non-competitive.

It has no ambition, because it only seeks to serve.

It knows of no boundaries for nationalisms are unloving.

It is not of itself because it seeks to enrich all groups and religions.

It acknowledges all great teachers of all the ages who have shown the truth of Love.

Those who participate, practise the Truth of Love in all their daily being.

There is no walk of life or nationality that is a barrier.

Those who are, know. It seeks not to teach but to be, and by being, enrich.

It recognises the collectivity of all humanity and that we are all one with the One.

It recognises that the way we are may be the way of those around us because we are that way.

It recognises the whole planet as a Being, of which we are a part.

It recognises that the time has come for the supreme transmutation, the ultimate alchemical act, the conscious change of the ego into a voluntary return to the whole.

It does not proclaim itself with a loud voice but in the subtle realms of loving.

It salutes all those in the past who have blazoned the path but paid the price.

It admits of no hierarchy or structure, for no one is greater than another.

Its members shall know each other by their deeds and being and their eyes and by no other outward sign, save the fraternal embrace.

Each one will dedicate his or her life to the silent loving of their neighbour and environment and the planet, whilst carrying out their daily task, however exalted or humble.

It recognises the supremacy of the great idea which may only be accomplished if the human race practices the supremacy of Love.

It has no rewards to offer, either here or in the hereafter, save that of the ineffable joy of being and loving.

Its members shall seek only to advance the cause of understanding, within whichever church, group or family they happen to be.

They shall do good by stealth and teach only by example.

They shall heal their neighbour, their community and our Planet.

They shall know no fear, and feel no shame and their witness shall prevail over all odds.

It has no secrets, no arcanum, no initiations save that of the true understanding of the power of love and that, if we want it to be so, the world will change but only if we change ourselves first.

ALL THOSE WHO BELONG, BELONG, THAT IS THE CHURCH OF LOVE.

I am a rock, I am an island…

Inspired Jamila...

The inability to receive support from others is a trauma response. Your “I don’t need anyone, I’ll just do it all myself” conditioning is a survival tactic. And you needed it to shield your heart from abuse, neglect, betrayal, and disappointment from those who could not or would not be there for you.

From the parent who was absent and abandoned you by choice or the parent who was never home from working three jobs to feed and house you. From the lovers who offered sexual intimacy but never offered a safe haven that honoured your heart.

From the friendships and family who ALWAYS took more than they ever gave. From all the situations when someone told you “we’re in this together” or “I got you” then abandoned you, leaving you to pick up the pieces when shit got real, leaving you to handle your part and their part, too.

From all the lies and all the betrayals.

You learned along the way that you just couldn’t really trust people. Or that you could trust people, but only up to a certain point. Extreme-independence IS. A. TRUST. ISSUE. You learnt: if I don’t put myself in a situation where I rely on someone, I won’t have to be disappointed when they don’t show up for me, or when they drop the ball… because they will ALWAYS drop the ball EVENTUALLY right?

You may even have been intentionally taught this protection strategy by generations of hurt ancestors who came before you. Extreme-independence is a pre-emptive strike against heartbreak.

So, you don’t trust anyone.

And you don’t trust yourself, either, to choose people. To trust is to hope, to trust is to be vulnerable. “Never again,” you vow. But no matter how you dress it up and display it proudly to make it seem like this level of independence is what you always wanted to be, in truth it’s your wounded, scarred, broken heart behind a protective brick wall. Impenetrable. Nothing gets in. No hurt gets in. But no love gets in either.

Fortresses and armour are for those in battle, or who believe the battle is coming.

It’s a trauma response.

The good news is trauma that is acknowledged is trauma that can be healed.

  • You are worthy of having support.
  • You are worthy of having true partnership.
  • You are worthy of love.
  • You are worthy of having your heart held.
  • You are worthy to be adored.
  • You are worthy to be cherished.
  • You are worthy to have someone say, “You rest. I got this.” And actually deliver on that promise.
  • You are worthy to receive.
  • You are worthy to receive.
  • You are worthy.
  • You don’t have to earn it.
  • You don’t have to prove it.
  • You don’t have to bargain for it.
  • You don’t have to beg for it.

You are worthy. Worthy. Simply because you exist.

Found on the ‘net. Written by Jamila White.

Mariana’s Trench

Is nearly 7 miles deep, the deepest place on earth. Everest is less than 6 miles high. A place of extremes.

I’ve always been fascinated by extremes. Don’t know why. The biggest, the smallest, the fastest, the heaviest..; it’s not surprising that the Guinness Book of Records was one of my favourite books as a teenager.

Well perhaps I do now. We are living through the most extreme period of our lifetimes. Is it possible to over exaggerate the nature of “reality” as it rolls out in 2020? Do you know anyone who could predict the scale of the cataclysmic shift we are experiencing? We have biblical predictions; we have had Nostradamus and Edgar Cayce. 30 years ago David Icke emerged to an unsuspecting public. Nine years ago I had the unbelievable shock and blessing when my wife Anne began to channel Princess Diana. Diana knew the script, or at least large parts of it, before she was “departed.”

You may have heard the expression “everything we have been told is a lie.” Easy to say this, difficult to accept, and utterly impossible to fully comprehend. Scientists and mystics have long maintained that the conscious, logical, left brain can only work with around 10% of what our whole brain is capable of. I’m saying that-as above so below- an infinite universe correlates to infinite mind. What is the mind? Our hearts and our organs have neurotransmitters, intelligent cells which send information to the brain. Our sense (and meaning) making “apparatus” is not limited to what fits under our skulls. And when you are created at conception how long is it before the hundred trillion cells which make up the physical body are formed from the sperm and the egg?

How many poets, authors, artists, sculptors, composers and song writers have attempted to express love in all its forms through their chosen mediums?

Have you ever been so in love that you frantically search the works of Rumi, Blake, Byron, Turner, Van Gogh, Jane Austen, the Brontë sisters, da Vinci, Strauss, Dylan, Lennon and McCartney for confirmation and inspiration…?

The global chaos and opportunity that engulfs us cannot be reduced- God help us- to “hanging chads” (if you remember the Bush/Gore presidential race in 2000 you will know what I’m talking about) or infinitely repeated soundbites, memes and scams. It is just as easy, whatever your worldview-without exception-to become excited about the future as it is to become depressed.

In May last year Victor Vescovo descended nearly seven miles to the deepest place on earth in Mariana’s Trench. This achievement cannot be underestimated.

As well as being interested in extremes, the mystical, the magical, the serendipitous, the ineffable, the indescribable all maintain their fascination.

A couple of nights ago, two words “came into my mind”. The title of this piece. It is either the Mariana trench, Marianas trench or in my version, Mariana’s trench. Do you care? Let me say I was in Rumi mode. Mary and Anna have great significance for me. River deep, Mountain high? As we live in a world of inversion, it makes complete sense to me to use the metaphor of Mariana’s trench to express the ineffable.

Today I spent an hour or two in “England’s most beautiful village,” Bibury in the Cotswolds (William Morris. William Morris was a 19th century British textile designer, poet, novelist, translator, and socialist activist).

Bibury stirs many emotions in me. Before martial law it was almost impossible to explore the place without rubbing shoulders with literally thousands of other tourists. “Private property” signs are written in Chinese and Japanese.

This morning all I felt was peace.

Maybe you would feel peace on the top of Mount Everest or at the bottom of Mariana’s trench. In this incarnation I have no inclination to attempt to visit either of these destinations, despite massively admiring those who do.

So I’ll have to restrict myself to my own Mariana and Everest experiences, uniquely my own and uniquely indescribable. I’m not sure what goes before the expression “and die a happy man” but I could have a very good guess.

All I need to do now is to translate, in whichever way I can, the microcosm to the macrocosm. Or is it the other way round?

Namaste, love to you all, Jack Stewart November 9, 2020.

You are an Angel

gabriel

“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.

Beautiful Noise?

mask 8We 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.

Unconscious Bias

lettuce

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.

facts

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.

Self Esteem

we-rise-by-lifting-others-post

“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?

sunSelf-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.

Jack Stewart, feeling inspired, June 29, 2020.

We rise by lifting ourselves.

Do you love yourself, really?

heart and mindFirst some big picture stuff. Before the plandemic, the race riots, the destruction and history deletion, what was the state of the world? Peaceful? Universal abundance? Everyone healthy, happy and fulfilled? I won’t insult your intelligence.

So the world was broken and causes were advanced. It was capitalism and colonialism. The lot of everyone who wasn’t a white man was appalling because of the patriarchy. It was global warming; it was the virus that is humanity.

  • Do you see a problem here?

If I go around pointing the finger at others I believe are responsible for the state of the world then I am a good person. If I “take the knee” then I am one of the guilty ones. Emotionally charged white zealots have a problem when confronted by black policemen or women in proclaiming their white patriarchal causal theory. But they don’t. Black policemen and women are part of the problem. They have clearly sold out.

  • But it goes a little deeper than that.

If I “take the knee” I’m siding with the oppressed. They are oppressed through my conscious or unconscious actions and those of my ancestors. So my skin colour is irrelevant? I feel guilty.

If humanity, black, white and all shades in between, is the problem (the virus) then where do we go from here? Is it possible that Antifa and BLM zealots are also infected?

  • The real pandemic.

You’re not likely to get up out of your chair, go to the nearest mirror, look into it and reflect on how you see yourself are you? But to save you the journey, how do you perceive yourself? Better than other people? Guilty? Are most people superior to you? Those “others” you lord it over, are they part of any particular group?

  • A bit nearer to home.

Regardless of your gender, are you equal to, better or worse than, in terms of a yet to be defined criterion, your husband/wife/kids/friends/family?

insane

If you go out, breathing air, you have been told there is a risk you will kill someone. You are asymptomatic, so the fact you are not hot, coughing and breathless is no excuse. You could kill someone anyway. So you don’t. You stay home. You comply with house arrest, wearing a useless mask that could increase your chance of catching this ‘flu variant, avoid other people like the plague, shun social contact with loved ones and even your close family and wait for government permission to tell you when to come out from behind the sofa.

Why do you do that? Because you have been told you are a potential killer?

corrupt

Unless you truly have been hibernating for three months, you will have noticed that you have carte blanche, especially in America, to go out and “protest.” If you do that your potential killer status is suspended. You can stand shoulder to shoulder with other one-time potential killers and the only consequences are non-health related. And you know what they are.

However, if you go to a political rally, try to open your business, object to house arrest et cetera, you are, again, a potential killer.

In the totally unhinged, insane world of identity politics there is a hierarchy of victimhood. At the moment those at the top of the victim tree are black people. We haven’t heard much lately about transgender issues. Or the fighting between some feminists (TERFS-Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists) and transgender activists.

Then we have the “experts.”

gates by 2

Who are the experts? Are they one above status wise that other revered group, scientists, in the social pecking order? What happens if one of these experts (Neil Ferguson anyone?) gets it wrong? What happens- DO YOUR RESEARCH- when people like Ferguson get it consistently wrong? Might it be a choice by politicians of who to choose as an expert? After all aren’t all experts correct come what may? Surely experts and their lesser brethren, scientists, are uniquely objective, unbiased, wise people who are totally uninfluenced by those who pay their salaries?

I have studied human behaviour for over 40 years, spent thousands of hours researching, attending courses, teaching personal development and held positions in academia. Am I an expert? On some things, maybe. Am I an authority? No chance. Would any government which is part of the swamp, hire me to promote and help fulfil their agenda?

  • Some things are indisputable.

2 per cent

Most of my real learning, my “wisdom”, my beliefs and values (of which I am proud) have come from interactions with other people. I have met “experts”, global leaders in my field, “educated” people and thousands of people I could not or would not label. Perhaps my worldview is totally distorted. If I buy into the concept of the 2%, then as a member of this group do I want the 98% to join me? If this theory has any validity then what is to be done?

Credit where it is due. Those currently in power have done an incredible job during my lifetime of convincing the majority they are in need of saving. In the last 10 years the only thing to be is a victim. The system disempowers you anyway, so to become empowered you have to challenge the status quo. If you are a victim, especially a more downtrodden victim than anyone else, mainstream politicians have got your back. You see the problem keeps coming back to the white patriarchy.

You can violently challenge the patriarchy, the colonialist behemoth, and it makes you feel good. The worm has turned. Smash the system. I certainly bought into smashing (non-violently I hasten to add)-the system for decades. As a white man it is a little difficult for me to want to abolish the patriarchy. Sure I can take the knee, daily if necessary, and tithe a substantial portion of my meagre income to Black Lives Matter. I can humiliate myself, feel guilty and start to despise who I am. I can denounce my dead parents, and search in my ancestry for proof that I am racist. Or a virus. And by driving a car and at some stage in the future- God forbid- flying, I can hate myself even more because of global warming.

So, people like me are the oppressors. Or we can become one of the victims. As an oppressor, I should be cancelled, de-platformed and removed. As a victim, in the current climate, I’m one of the good guys, and might even be financially rewarded for any destructive behaviour, be it physical or verbal. And who is going to rescue me?

  • But wait…

What if I wasn’t a victim? What if I thought a long time ago that I could rise above any challenge, that by loving and accepting myself I could love and accept others? What if I realised I was an essential, unique and significant part of the human race, of the timeless oneness in all creation? What if I realised this biological spacesuit I currently inhabit had no significance other than that which I gave to it? And what if I dedicated my life to helping other people wake up to their true selves, their true nature?

And what if I forgave those who betrayed me? What if I forgave myself for betraying others? And what if I used my own imperfect life, the mistakes I made, to motivate me to be a better person?

And instead of pulling down statues, and deleting history, we all learned from the mistakes of the past and use those mistakes to motivate us all to never repeating them and to build a better world?

Suppose we all woke up from the false narrative perpetrated continuously, universally and in a 1000 different disguises that we are either victims or oppressors?

Suppose we realised that everyone has an agenda, no matter what it is, and that by discovering that agenda we then have a choice to make. My agenda (a gender, how interesting) is very clear though I can never be 100% certain that I have convinced you.

We are all one, we are all of equal worth, and we are beings of magnificence, creative and compassionate. If we treat others badly, which we all do, we can learn from that and become better people. We are not victims; we are a heartbeat from emancipation, liberation and empowerment. No matter what our financial, social and wellness status it is possible to break out of our socially constructed and self-perpetuated prisons.

Anyone can be healed, not everyone can be healed.

The real pandemic? You know now what it is, and in truth you always knew it. How does that song go? “Learning to love yourself is the greatest Love of all.” Love yourself, or find someone who loves you to help you. Love heals.
