This one will take some commitment to listen to. It’s detailed and extensive. Some of it is annoying – and all of it is deeply disturbing. None of us likes to believe that our mind is not our own. And keep in mind: this is but a tiny peek into the murky world of human manipulation.
Most of us have not a single clue about the degree to which we are so easily manipulated. (More about that in future posts since we are designed for compliance with ‘authority’.) For decades, much research has been done to demonstrate that our deep need to be accepted by a collective (i.e. safety) will press us into behaviour we would likely never choose, on our own. Not by accident, we have been long and relentlessly conditioned to be compliant to an external pressure when positioned as smarter, wiser, bigger, stronger… and scarier.
The last few years have demonstrated the degree to which we are willing to be compliant ‘in the name of good/right citizenship’ (ie. tribe) … despite massive amounts of evidence to the contrary. Still, the need to toe the party line has been the strong and insistent hand at our back, pressing us into a mindless adoption of some of the most egregious and internally offensive compliance that I have witnessed in my lifetime. And we all know: I’m old… so that’s a lot of lifetime to be an observer to individual and collective human behaviour.
Do or don’t watch/listen to this video. As in all things, life is shaped by the choices we make – from one moment to the next. There are no short-cuts to an authentic and meaningful Life.
BTW: this is just the tip of the iceberg. Mind-control/mind-manipulation has been rapidly developing/expanding to include a vast array of new ways to use technology to infiltrate structures of mind. Without a deep sense of connection to an unshakeable inner truth, you are but a leaf in a gale-force wind and will go in the direction intended by some ‘other’. And through it all, nonetheless, you still get to decide who YOU want to be and how YOU want to live.
