Someone I know via FB recently sent me a link to a video, with an accompanying message: “worth listening to” and “this is what we are up against.”
This video was purportedly exposing the “Illuminati”–the recited text a list of ways ‘they’ are manipulating and controlling the masses, coupled with visual images meant to horrify and incense.
First let me say that the text itself, when examined, contains multiple contradictions and an inherent fallacy that makes the whole exercise a terrible joke. Looked at objectively the ‘covenant’ is a cunningly contrived discourse whose purpose is obviously to excite those of little understanding or discernment.
(The fact is, there doesn’t need to be some elite group of puppet-masters manipulating the masses. The masses are well manipulated by the advertising industry alone. The ads we see every day that tell us in order to be happy we have to look like this, eat that, and drive the other are enough to convince the majority to stay on the treadmill of consumerism: spending one’s time, energy and hard-earned money on conforming to the latest idea of ‘in’ or ‘hip’–frittering away one’s life chasing the carrot that always stays just out of reach, and burdened by never-ending debt. A slave who imagines he’s free.)
What my (I’m guessing well-intentioned) acquaintance and those who spread the alarm about this so-called cabal apparently don’t realize, is that by circulating this material they are serving the very purpose of those they condemn: the spread of fear and loathing–exciting the minds of the easily influenced to ineffectual rage. The upshot being that those who engage in this sort of conspiracy theorism are rendered useless in the larger struggle of Ignorance versus Enlightenment: for to engage at all is to concede one’s energy to Ignorance. By dwelling on the insanity, or inanity, we feed it energetically (witness the Palin phenomenon), and only by withdrawing one’s attention/energy may it be rendered impotent. Where there is no reaction there is no effect.
We are only at effect of that which we acknowledge.
By ceasing to engage in the maelstrom promulgated by the media–whose prime motive is profit, and secondary purpose to engage the populace in the turmoil of opinion, rendering them neutered in the ongoing process of overcoming Ignorance–we take the stand: we use our energy as we WILL, not as you would have us, reactively.
Those that understand this principle of Self-Mastery–and recognize our Oneness–focus their energy and attention on propagating that which fosters Understanding, Harmony & Compassion, for by so doing we eliminate the false barriers that have been erected to divide and conquer, and tip the balance toward the Light.
Be part of this intensifying phenomenon: embrace the Evolution Revolution and allow Consciousness to expand in you.
