The Individual vs. Globalism

by Jon Rappoport

August 20, 2017
“Global solution” means the individual is cut out of the equation, he doesn’t count, he doesn’t mean anything in the larger scheme of things, he’s just another pawn and cipher to move around on the board.
This is purposeful.
This is the script for the future: create problems whose only solution appears to be collective.
Psychologically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually divert the individual’s attention from his own vision, his own profound desires, his own imagination—and place it within The Group (“all of humanity”).
Propagandize the idea that, if the individual concerns himself with anything other than The Group, he is selfish, greedy, inhumane. He is a criminal.
More and more, this is how the young are being trained these days.
The grand “we” is being sold to them like a cheap street drug. They buy in. They believe this “we” is real, instead of a hollow con designed to drag them into a Globalist framework owned and operated by mega-corporations, banks, foundations, governments, and ubiquitous Rockefeller interests.
And what of the individual, his mind, his unique perception, his independent ideas, his originality, his life-force?
Swept away in the rush toward “a better world.”
I have breaking news. Earth is not a spaceship and we are not crew members. If Earth is a spaceship, it has serious design flaws, because it keeps making the same trip around the same sun every year.
Each one of us does not have a specified function, as a crew member would.
Going back as far as you want to in history, shortage and scarcity in the world that engendered a crisis was either created by some elite or maintained by them, for the purpose of eradicating dissent and fomenting a collectivist solution. Meaning a solution that came from the top. Meaning a solution that reduced individual freedom.
In recent human history, a different idea emerged: establish severely hamstrung government, in order to protect the individual against it.
This idea has had a very tough time. Collectivists have fought it every step of the way.
But regardless of circumstances, the individual can author his own freedom and what it implies. He can discover, within himself, extraordinary possibilities. He can contemplate what it means to create reality that expresses his most profound desires.
And then he can begin a voyage that no one and no group can stop.
Civilizations come and go, rise and fall; the individual remains.
The word “imagination,” when properly understood, indicates that the individual can envision and then create futures that never were, and never would be, unless he invented them.
Imagination is the opposite of “provincial,” “restricted,” “well-known,” “familiar,” “accepted.”
That is its challenge to the status quo.
That is the true threat the individual poses to all predictive systems.
Therefore, “it’s all just information” is a psyop code-phrase. Ideas, thoughts—nothing is original, nothing is new; we all “share” information floating in the collective consciousness; the individual invents nothing.
Which is the opposite of the truth. The individual invents everything.
He can’t be predicted when he is himself. He is not a pattern. He is not a system.
He is not anyone else.
He thrives on his own inspiration.
He is the ultimate riverboat gambler. He bets the house on his own as-yet uncreated future.
He is not a piece of universe.
He is not a humble servant of Order.
He invents the space and time of his own time to come.
As early as 1961, a brilliant healer, Richard Jenkins, whom I write about in my book, The Secret Behind Secret Societies, explained what was to come. He wrote me a note, which I’m paraphrasing from memory: “People are confusing their own empathy for others with some inflated idea about group-identity. They aren’t the same. People are becoming afraid of their own unique and distinct existence. This is a social fear. A new social contract is being foisted on the population. Either you belong, or you have no rights. This is a totalitarian concept. It’s coming in through the back door.”
Well, now, it’s right there at the front door.
The individual still has a choice. But he has to make it.
Explore his own power, or give it away for nothing more than an illusion of belonging.
Stoke the fires within, or form a diluted image of self, and bow down to The Group.
The “I” is not isolated. He can reach out to others whenever and however he wants to. The question is, is he moving on the ground of his own independence, or is he searching for a group life raft, to which he will attach himself without thought or hesitation?
Beyond economics or politics, Globalism is a system that offers a life raft which is heading toward a machine-future. Disembark and find the great We, a construct of integrated parts, each of which is an individual, in a state of spiritual amnesia.
Happiness there is function and sedation, shadowless, wiped clean of distinctions.
This is the elitist end-game of social justice and equality.
It’s a fake culture.”

Awareness Tool

Perception
BY MADISYN TAYLOR
“A simple shift in attitude can help us recognize the hidden potential for fulfillment in every event.
There is no secret recipe for happiness and contentment. 
The individuals who move through life joyously have not necessarily been blessed with lives of abundance, love, success, and prosperity. 
Such people have, however, been blessed with the ability to take the circumstances they’ve been handed and make them into something great. 
Our individual realities are colored by perception–delight and despair come from within rather than without. 
Situations we regard as fortuitous please us while situations we judge inauspicious cause us no end of grief. 
Yet if we can look at all we have accomplished without dwelling on our perceived misfortune and make each new circumstance our own, the world as a whole becomes a brighter place. 
A simple shift in attitude can help us recognize and unearth the hidden potential for personal and outer world fulfillment in every event, every relationship, every duty, and every setback. 
The universe is often an unpredictable and chaotic place, and the human tendency is to focus on the negative and assume the positive will care for itself. 
But life can be no more or no less than what you make of it. If you are working in a job you dislike, you can concentrate on the positive aspects of the position and approach your work with gusto. 
What can you do with this job that can turn it around so you do love it. 
When faced with the prospect of undertaking a task you fear, you can view it as an opportunity to discover what you are truly capable of doing. 
Similarly, unexpected events, when viewed as surprises, can add flavor to your existence. 
By choosing to love life no matter what crosses your path, you can create an atmosphere of jubilance that is wonderfully infectious. 
A change in perspective is all it takes to change your world, but you must be willing to adopt an optimistic, hopeful mind-set. 
To make a conscious decision to be happy is not enough. You must learn to observe life’s complexities through the eyes of a child seeing everything for the first time. 
You must furthermore divest yourself of preconceived notions of what is good and what is bad so that you can appreciate the rich insights concealed in each stage of your life’s journey. 
And you must strive to discover the dual joys of wanting what you have. 
As you gradually shift your perspective, your existence will be imbued with happiness and contentment that will remain with you forever.”

Life as The Best Master

“Life
BY MADISYN TAYLOR
All the situations in our lives, from the insignificant to the major, teach us exactly what we need to be learning.
Many of us long to find a spiritual teacher or guru. We may feel unsure of how to practice our spirituality without one, or we may long for someone who has attained a higher level of insight to lead the way for us. 
Some of us have been looking for years to no avail and feel frustrated and even lost. The good news is that the greatest teacher you could ever want is always with you–that is your life. 
The people and situations we encounter every day have much to teach us when we are open to receiving their wisdom. 
Often we don’t recognize our teachers because they may not look or act like our idea of a guru, yet they may embody great wisdom. 
In addition, some people teach us by showing us what we don’t want to do. All the situations in our lives, from the insignificant to the major, conspire to teach us exactly what we need to be learning at any given time. 
Patience, compassion, perseverance, honesty, letting go–all these are covered in the classroom of the teacher that is your life. 
We can help ourselves to remember this perfect teacher each day with a few simple words. 
Each morning we might find a moment to say, “I acknowledge and honor the teacher that is my life. May I be wise enough to recognize the teachers and lessons that I encounter today, and may I be open to receiving their wisdom.” 
We might also take some time each day to consider what our lives are trying to teach us at this time. 
A difficult phase in your relationship with your child may be teaching you to let go. 

The homeless person you see every day may be showing you the boundaries of your compassion and generosity. A spate of lost items may be asking you to be more present to physical reality. 
Trust your intuition on the nature of the lesson at hand, work at your own pace, and ask as many questions as you want. Your life has all the answers.”

Reacción vs. Response

REACTION vs. RESPONSE
“A Master never reacts, he responds. A man who is aware never reacts, he responds. You react. Try to understand the difference.
Reaction is a deep-rooted habit. Response is not a habit. It is an alive sensitivity to the moment.
Response is real. Reaction is always unreal. 
Somebody insults you and you react. Reaction means: between the insult and what you do, between these two, there is not a single moment of awareness. 
You react through habit as you have reacted in the past – but the situation is totally different.”
-Rajneesh
———————

REACCIONAR vs. RESPONDER
“Un maestro nunca reaccciona, él responde. Una persona que está alerta nunca reacciona. Ella responde. 
Tu reaccionas. Trata de entender la diferencia. 
Reacción es un hábito profundamente enraizado. Responder no es un hábito, es una sensitividad viva al momento.  
La respuesta es real. La reacción siempre es irreal. 
Alguien te insulta y tú reaccionas. La reacción significa: entre el insulto y lo que tú haces, entre estos dos, no hay ni un instante de alerta consciente. 
Tu reaccionas a través del hábito como has reaccionado en el pasado-pero la situación es totalmente diferente.”
-Rajneesh

What is The Matrix?

“The Easy Way Out.

by Jon Rappoport

August 5, 2017

POINT ONE:

The basic fact to remember about the first Matrix film was that a hero had to be chosen. ONE MAN. A person who would function beyond the rules of the space-time continuum.

Not a group. Not a committee.

Real power would accrue to an individual.

POINT TWO:

In real life, the reason the real Matrix endures is that there is an audience for it.
And audience is fascinated by, and glued to, STORY.

There are certain kinds of stories that are particularly effective at maintaining audience in a state of being audience.

For example, the hero is faced with a problem which turns into a mystery, and he then penetrates the mystery after much work and danger—during which time his friends lose faith in him—and finally the hero does away with the villain at the heart of the mystery…
WHATEVER KEEPS AUDIENCE BEING ONLY AUDIENCE KEEPS THE MATRIX IN PLACE.
For the most part, audience wants to remain being audience, and it will search for and rationalize ways to do just that.

Religion can be an excellent way to remain being audience on a cosmic scale.
The power to exit from being audience is real and significant. Without it, you stay in the Matrix.

Story has beginning, middle, and end. This pattern, so obvious and universal, is rarely thought about, but it creates a trance. Try writing a story without that sequence and see how many people want it.
“I’m audience, and I want beginning, middle, and end, over and over.”
Part of being audience is experiencing the letdown that happens after the story ends. This depression stimulates the need for another story. And on and on it goes. But the letdown, at a deeper level, is really about a dissatisfaction with the WHOLE PATTERN of story—people want to break out of that. They want to conquer that addiction.

And how is that done?
Well, the first step is being able to invent a story of your own.
And this is where people balk.
A few years ago, I received an email from a reader who expressed, in a vague way, his dissatisfaction with “my story.” As if he had been looking for a “master story teller”–which was an idea in HIS own mind—and since I didn’t fulfill that ideal, he was unhappy.
This was a perfect illustration of what I’m talking about. He wanted to remain being audience, and he was looking to me to supply material for his trance.

BEING AND REMAINING AUDIENCE magnetizes people to Matrix.

At a conference, I once gave a talk about freedom. In the middle of the talk, I told the audience we were going to do a few exercises that would possibly enhance their sense of freedom. The very notion that I was asking them to DO something, to come out of their audience-trance…which they hadn’t expected, caused a stir, a sense of apprehension. They were programmed for beginning, middle, and end—and I was suddenly shredding that.
They had planned on being entertained with the notion of freedom.
After the lecture, a friend of mine came up to me and said, “Did you catch what happened there, when you told them you were going to have them do exercises?”
“Sure,” I said. “That was on purpose.”

THE MATRIX EXISTS BECAUSE THERE IS AUDIENCE FOR IT.

On the level of mind, Matrix IS whatever keeps audience being audience.
Consciously or unconsciously, every salesman knows this.
I knew a quite successful salesman who revealed his secret to me. If he had told this secret to a psychiatrist, he would have been diagnosed as bipolar or schizoid in two seconds.
He said he knew he had been a salesman in many past lives, and therefore he knew exactly how to act and speak “in the role” of Salesman. If he followed the role exactly, his prospects would buy whatever he was selling. If he didn’t, they wouldn’t. There was a beginning, middle, and end to his pitch.

He had the knack of keeping his audience in a state of being audience. In a trance. And part of the trance was signing the check and the contract. It was a piece of cake.

AUDIENCE DOESN’T INVENT.

THEY EXPERIENCE.

AND THAT’S WHAT THEY WANT.

MATRIX.

You have a choice. You can go along for the ride in Matrix, or you can imagine imagination and embark on the journey of journeys.
Most people are not up to contemplating the idea of consciously creating, much less spontaneously improvising, which involves a kind of merging with what they would create.

But for those who can grasp such an idea, the world and the universe aren’t any longer arbiters and rule makers and guides. They are inventions that are already here.
Ensuing years of research resulted in my three recent Matrix collections, of which Exit From The Matrix is most focused on practical techniques of imagination — to make your deepest desires fact in the world.”

Staying True to Your Word

BY MADISYN TAYLOR

“Your honest word is one of your most precious and powerful possessions.
Promises are easily made. Keeping them often proves more difficult because when we are pressured to strive always for perfection, we find it simpler to agree to undertake impossible tasks than to say no. 
Likewise, there is an infinite array of circumstances that conspire to goad us into telling falsehoods, even when we hold a great reverence for truth. 
When you endeavor to consistently keep your word, however, you protect your reputation and promote yourself as someone who can be trusted to be unfailingly truthful. 
Though your honesty may not always endear you to others–for there will always be those who fear the truth–you can nonetheless be certain that your integrity is never tarnished by the patina of deceit. 
Since frankness and sincerity form the basis of all life-enriching relationships, your word is one of your most precious and powerful possessions. 
When we promise more than we can deliver, hide from the consequences of our actions through falsehoods, or deny our true selves to others, we hurt those who were counting on us by proving that their faith was wrongly given. 
We are also hurt by the lies we tell and the promises we break. Integrity is the foundation of civilization, allowing people to live, work, and play side by side without fear or apprehension. 
As you cultivate honesty within yourself, you will find that your honor and reliability put people at ease. Others will feel comfortable seeking out your friendship and collaborating with you on projects of great importance, certain that their positive expectations will be met. 
If you do catch yourself in a lie, ask yourself what you wanted to hide and why you felt you couldn’t be truthful. 
And if life’s surprises prevent you from keeping your word, simply admit your error apologetically and make amends quickly. 
Since the path of truth frequently represents the more difficult journey, embarking upon it builds character. 
You can harness the power of your word when you do your best to live a life of honesty and understand what motivates dishonesty. 
In keeping your agreements and embodying sincerity, you prove that you are worthy of trust and perceive values as something to be incorporated into your daily existence.”

—————————————————————

From the toltec wisdom we know one of the Four Agreements:

“Be impeccable with your word”.

Timing Can Be Everything

BY MADISYN TAYLOR


“Every person fulfills their purpose when the time is right.

Since human timetables quite often do not correspond with universal timetables, it’s common for people to feel that life is progressing too slowly or too quickly. 


We draft carefully composed plans only to find that they fall into place when we least expect. Or, conversely, we are thrust into roles we believe we are not prepared for and wonder how we will survive the demands imposed upon us by unfamiliar circumstances. 


When delays in our progress kindle pangs of disappointment within us or the pace of life seems overwhelming, peace can be found in the simple fact that we are exactly where we need to be at this moment. 


Every person fulfills their purpose when the time is right. 


If you have fast-tracked to success, you may become deeply frustrated if you discover you can no longer satisfy your desires as quickly as you might like. Yet the delays that disappoint you may be laying the foundation for future accomplishments that you have not yet conceived. 


Or the universe may have plans for you that differ from the worldly aspirations you have pursued up until this point. What you deem a postponement of progress may actually represent an auspicious opportunity to prepare for what is yet to come. 


If, however, you feel as though the universe is pushing you forward at too fast a clip, you may be unwittingly resisting your destiny. 


Your unease regarding the speed of your progress could be a sign that you need to cultivate awareness within yourself and learn to move with the flow of fate rather than against it. 


The universe puts nothing in your path that you are incapable of handling, so you can rest assured that you are ready to grow into your new situation. 


You may feel compelled to judge your personal success using your age, your professional position, your level of education, or the accomplishments of your peers as a yardstick. 


Yet we all enjoy the major milestones in our lives at the appropriate time–some realize their dreams as youngsters while others flourish only in old age. 


If you take pride in your many accomplishments and make the most of every circumstance in which you find yourself, your time will come.”

Awareness of outward things

“If you are aware of outward things—the curve of a road, the shape of a tree, the colour of another’s dress, the outline of the mountains against a blue sky, the delicacy of a flower, the pain on the face of a passerby, the ignorance, the envy, the jealousy of others, the beauty of the earth—then, seeing all these outward things without condemnation, without choice, you can ride on the tide of inner awareness.

Then you will become aware of your own reactions, of your own pettiness, of your own jealousies. From the outward awareness, you come to the inward; but if you are not aware of the outer, you cannot possibly come to the inner…

When there is inward awareness of every activity of your mind and your body; when you are aware of your thoughts, of your feelings, both secret and open, conscious and unconscious, then out of this awareness there comes a clarity that is not induced, not put together by the mind.”

-J Krishnamurti, The Collected Works vol XV p 243

Not self-improvement

“The man who wants to improve himself can never be aware, because improvement implies condemnation and the achievement of a result.

Whereas in awareness, there is observation without condemnation, without denial or acceptance.

That awareness begins with outward things, being aware, being in contact with objects, with nature. First, there is awareness of things about one, being sensitive to objects, to nature, then to people, which means relationship; then there is awareness of idea.

This awareness, being sensitive to things, to nature, to people, to ideas is not made up of separate processes, but is one unitary process.

It is a constant observation of everything, of every thought and feeling and action as they arise within oneself.”

-J Krishnamurti, The First and Last Freedom, p 173

Understanding All Sides

BY MADISYN TAYLOR

“Looking at only one side of our life can make us blind to the many other ways of looking at our situation. Whenever we examine our lives, we examine them from a particular side or angle. Most of us tend to favor one side over the others. For example, we may tend to look at things from an emotional perspective rather than a financial perspective, or we may prefer to think in terms of details rather than the big picture, or vice versa. To a certain degree, this is not a problem, and these tendencies add color to our individual personalities.

However, they can also make us one-sided, blind to the many other ways of looking at our situation. Even if we have decided that we are most happy when we focus on one particular side of things, it is always worth exploring the other sides. When we do, we become well rounded, more understanding of other viewpoints, and even more solid in our own.

Perhaps you are a person who tends to see your life in terms of your spiritual well-being. As a result, other concerns such as financial comfort or social standing may not be prominent in your mind as you make decisions. However, taking just a moment to consider those angles will help you in several ways.

One, it will enable you to see more clearly what your priorities are and how they influence your life situation.

Two, it will enhance your sense of confidence, because you will see your situation from all sides, even as you choose one.

And three, it will help you communicate with others about who you are and what you are doing, because you will come from a place of understanding that your own biases and tendencies are unique as are theirs.

Most of us instinctively come at things from a particular angle, and in many cases this is the right way for us. Still, understanding the other angles only strengthens us. When we look at our lives from all sides, we shed light on the big picture, giving ourselves access to many points of view and highlighting more clearly the one we have chosen to take.”
