“There are certainly many people who might have a sense inside themselves that something feels off. That perhaps something bigger than what’s let on is going on out there. Perhaps they’re not getting the full story. But, because they have no way of explaining what or how or why, they simply choose to distrust their internal cues, trust the external voices proclaiming themselves legitimate, and ultimately, comply to the top down demands despite knowing something feels off….
….I have come to conclude that we, as a people, have such a deep desire to trust another with our own safety and protection that we are willing to be duped so long as we don’t have to face ourselves. We keep ourselves small to please parental authorities and their surrogates. We’ve spent a lifetime being mercilessly told what to do! We bully because we were bullied. We deny ourselves our truth because we’d rather hope things aren’t what they are. We allow fear to cripple us. We believe the loudest voices. We don’t ask too many questions. We are biochemically addicted to stress. We are profoundly disconnected from our bodies. We have a short memory. We have a pervasive tendency to judge and externalise blame. We believe the God/Science will save us. We’d rather put one foot in front of the other and pretend things are okay than actually deal with the immensity of the predicaments we have collectively created. We’d rather die than face our diagnosis or change our habits…” (Stela Shakti – Ideology Makes the Illusions Seem Real: Similarities Between Albania Then & Covid Now)
Who knows what is really going on right now… globally? Who knows what other pieces of the puzzle are hidden; great effort directed at ensuring we keep our attention on the left hand while the right hand is raised and poised to strike. What I do know is that my choices are directed by what moves inside of me and not what is imposed from outside of me. It is not always an easy way to live – and I know of no other way.
Stela Shakti draws powerful and undeniable similarities. Perhaps we would be wise to consider them… now!
