Your ignorance is their strength.  Human history is the story of individuals and institutions.  And today we are at the crossroads.  Arguably all of the world’s most extreme problems stem from information and its lacking.  Today there is a matrix formed at these crossroads, a figurative fork in the road where our story can be altered, where the direction will be chosen.  We can submit to the information overlords or we can share information for all so that the entire globe can move forward.

“Two dangerous runaway processes have taken root in the last decade, with fatal consequences for democracy.  Government secrecy has been expanding on a terrific scale.  Simultaneously, human privacy has been secretly eradicated.”  ~Julian Asange

We can allow institutions to control information or we can open up and share information for all.  Information is restricted from individuals and held by institutions so as to steer our thinking.  Institutions seek to control information so as to control the direction of the population.  The reason we all think the way we do is because of what we know and what we believe we know.  For instance if the majority of individuals knew the detriment of war and nuclear experimentation no one would allow mad scientists and evildoers to perpetuate such ruinous turmoil.  If the majority knew about the total environmental destruction that is taking place we would act to make a change.  And yet information on relevant situations that directly affect us all is restricted so that we are steered to think a certain way or not think at all about certain things.  Access to relevant information is being restricted by institutions.

Alternatively institutions are compiling mostly irrelevant information on individuals.  As the government and corporate oligarchical collectives of the world restrict information on their activities and the world’s actualities they are compiling information on individual activities.  This information is basically useless and arbitrary information or would be, if it weren’t for the impetus to control everyone and everyone’s thinking.  Relevant information should be open to all and the personal/irrelevant information should be irrelevant to institutions.

We all make our decisions on information.  All people of the world have an unwritten right to information.  Controlling oligarchical institutions should not have access to information that individuals do not have.  The divine right of institutions should be eliminated beginning with and perhaps dependent on the open exchange of information.

“Often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing government employee committed to public integrity and willing to speak out. Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled. We need to empower federal employees as watchdogs of wrongdoing and partners in performance. Barack Obama will strengthen whistleblower laws to protect federal workers who expose waste, fraud, and abuse of authority in government. Obama will ensure that federal agencies expedite the process for reviewing whistleblower claims and whistleblowers have full access to courts and due process.”  ~Barack Obama…

Belief Systems and the Power Of Authority

Chess-King

Today I would like to return to your awareness an aspect of the Human condition that adheres to the abstract nature of belief. Beliefs come in many shapes and sizes and yet all share something in common— they’re elusive and intangible.

Although we cannot “touch” a belief, it certainly has a way of touching us. Our belief modifies the way we think, how we act and feel. I take my tinfoil hat off to those who invented this system of social order so many moons ago. What a concept indeed. Imagine sitting around a stone-age conference table discussing this idea. I surely would have laughed it off. “You mean you can get people to accept something as truth even if it’s not real? C’mon man. I tell you what’s real— something called fire! Now that’s something you can believe in!”

Oh my, how I would have missed the boat. Not only did the concept grow legs, it sprouted wings. Turns out everyone wants to believe in something. For one thing it’s kind of fun. What would Christmas be like without Santa Clause? For another it makes us feel special somehow. But how does one find truth in a belief? The answer is really quite simple. We pretend.

In the following paragraphs I’ll take a somewhat playful (if not cynical) look at some of the hermetically-sealed belief systems that dominate in our lives. There’s a circuitous path one must navigate that divides our place of knowing from a world of make-believe. This trail can get a little precarious and downright slippery at times. So let’s saddle up our loyal mustangs and see where they take us. These majestic creatures are sure-footed, certain and most graceful in their stride. More than that, I sense they may know something we have forgotten.

Born to Run

This I can tell you about the mustang— they were born to run and we were born to ride. Where the trail ends, a new one begins and the sights and sounds are something to behold. The rider learns the way of the horse and the horse the way of the rider. It’s a relationship of balance and harmony. There’s a transfer of energy from one entity to another as our thoughts begin to roam free with wild abandon and the mustang gently restrains in courtesy of the saddle. On this journey, it’s not where you go— but where it takes you.

We are freedom-loving beings. You, me and the people we never meet or see because they live an ocean away. At the deepest level we are all free spirits. To this end we are not unlike the mustang. But I sense there’s a trifle few who would suggest we’re not deserving of this freedom. I believe they gain very much from the belief structures we submit to. And so we are encouraged to believe in those ideas and concepts that place cuffs on our hands and feet. We unlock our mind and hand another the key. Not because we’re foolish, but because we are trusting.

One may believe it is warm outside or that the words of another are true. But belief takes a giant leap forward when invested in an outside ideology or institution. These beliefs must be taught and learned. Can you see how someone might be stirred remotely by the belief system they follow? It’s here where we find the chasm between the spiritual and the believers. The spiritual mind seeks truth and spends many, many lonely nights pondering and wondering. It’s not enough for a lesson to be taught and handed to them— it must be felt at the very core of their being.

External influences are everywhere. We’ve all been conditioned into “believing” that we’re just a tiny speck in the macrocosm. Okay, to them I say— try removing that “speck” and see what happens. You’ll find it leaves a hole in this macrocosm, a tear in the ethereal fabric of all that is and will ever be. The tear would surely be the center of attention for all to notice. There is nothing insignificant about that.

And we must “believe” freedom is not free, they say. That’s not what the mustang tells me. And we must “believe” in a fabricated religion or face consternation or eternal damnation. We must “believe” in our teachers and the concepts of higher education. Most of all, the belief-makers want us to believe in all things outside ourselves. That’s the true societal doctrine. We must believe that without our loyal adherence to those synthetic constructs that mold us, we are very small and insignificant. Indeed, join the Army and be part of something bigger than yourself— or so they will tell you. But I will tell you again and again— there is nothing “bigger” than the beautiful, singular you.

The Concept of Religion

The late rock legend John Lennon perhaps said it best. In his song aptly titled, “God” he states “God is a concept by which we measure our pain.” Exactly what was meant by this verse is of course a matter of interpretation. But referring to God as a “concept” is what I find particularly intriguing. Lennon goes on to mention many ideologies and icons he doesn’t “believe” in. Even The Beatles made the list. Near the end of the track he writes, “I just believe in me… and that reality.” These are profoundly insightful words from someone who clearly understood the illusions that blind and bind us. When we believe in something outside ourselves we subordinate to the authority of that belief. Somebody is in control of that belief system and it’s not you.

“So you see I have come to doubt all that I once held as true.” These are the powerful words of Paul Simon from “Kathy’s Song.” Simon goes on to say “I stand alone without beliefs— the only truth I know is you.” The songwriters of yesterday came to our poetic and philosophical rescue. Music was perhaps the last conduit for elevating the masses into a higher consciousness. We’ve since moved on to a different sound and a different message. It would seem the philosophy belongs to a bygone era of the children of World War II and the veterans of Vietnam. The music I hear today is often brooding and complex or unmercifully adolescent. It too provides a snapshot of where we are today, but offers little antidote or resolution. The new sound seems to concede to the idea that we’re already screwed. They might be right.

In the most fundamental sense, as long as we believe in an external authority then we knowingly or unknowingly yield to those who govern it. This gives power to an entity outside of you. As in the case of a religious structure, we find not only individual power but the collective power of millions. Why does this concern me? Do we trust the wisdom of those who command this power and influence? We know there is an ongoing concern about religious improprieties. Collusion with nefarious governments, horrendous inquisitions, child rape and murder and a whole host of other unspeakable atrocities should offer one some pause and reservation. Personally, I will have nothing to do with institutions that serve as agents for Divine intervention. If there is a devil— in such a house you would find him. My thoughts belong to me. I’ve not been assigned my way of thinking.

Education and Government

Institutionalized education teaches us how to be compliant. Do not think for a moment that there is any real purpose beyond this. I once had a grade school teacher candidly admit, “You’re all empty minds needing to be filled.” Yes there is rudimentary instruction that loosely qualifies as teaching. But the real goal is to indoctrinate and enforce submission and turn the populace into working bees. There are many gifted children who ultimately fall out of this system because they have issues with compliance. I have nothing but disdain for modern education. Those who ultimately earn an advanced degree will be well-seasoned and attuned to the conformity and compliance of this institution. These are the same people who are ultimately chosen to effect major policy changes in society.

To what extent should we believe? Devices such as propaganda have long been used by government to influence the masses. People “believe” in what they’re told because they have submitted to this external authority. This power is so persuasive it can encourage people to enlist in the armed services. They are told they’re the defenders of “freedom” and yet they must give up much of their own freedom in order to serve in this capacity.

Dynamics of Belief

What I believe may not be what you believe and I am okay with that. In fact, I’m grateful for it. We are entitled to believe in what we want, but we should understand that beliefs are not the same as truth. Beliefs are malleable and can change over time. Truth is universal and will withstand the ages. The problem seems to be that many hold belief in the same light as truth. How did this happen?

Once surrendered to an external belief system, we’re honor-bound to serve it. In the simplest sense, that means if you call yourself a Mormon, then you must also say goodbye to coffee. That would surely spell my demise as I drink the stuff as if my life depended on it. So be it. My belief permits it. I abstain from meat— the Mormon does not. I would advise this ideology to not lecture me on matters of morality. If perhaps they are open to true enlightenment, I would suggest they close their book and open their mind. If they do, they will see how their structure is not unlike the others. Like all faiths, they preach peace and love as they march their children to war. There is such hypocrisy and deceit behind the velvet pulpits of shame.

Spirituality is also a belief system albeit a personal one. This means you’re the authority of it. You are not relinquishing your power to another. It does not suggest your belief is the right one or the only one. It does however suggest that you have found a belief that serves your needs—and that’s powerful indeed. You live with an inner-knowing and an inner-peace. You can separate yourself from the spectacle that surrounds you. From this vantage, all the rumblings of the world play out on stage. You may feel like one of the actors at times, but the spiritually aware are more attuned as observers. They may feel captivated and moved by the story, but they know it’s just a show.

Final Thought

My reality did not come pre-wrapped in a package with a pretty bow on it. I was not captured by a flowering sermon or summoned by a Bible-pumping preacher pimping fear. I fought long and hard for the truth and the philosophy I live by. I had to first unlearn what had been sewn into my young psyche at such an impressionable age. Not an easy task by any measure. I had to forgive and forget the Catholic teachings and extricate myself from the labyrinth that held me. I had feelings of guilt which were not unlike the pain of divorce. I learned to let go.

I believe in you and I believe in me. Much beyond that is a real reach in my world. What we call belief is merely a presumption, opinion or an understanding. On the other hand, the word “truth” suggests a state of knowing, a resonance in harmony at the very core of who and what we are. And yet we use these words freely and interchangeably.

Ah, alas, I see we’re back. There were a couple of slippery parts there— but your mustang held on and stayed true to course. When the rider bonds with their horse, there’s a synergy that benefits both. You really had nothing to fear as the path withered and narrowed into a new trail of your own making.

The moon is high now, the sage silvery and sweet, but the shadow from a Saguaro conjures the image of a wounded man. And I think to myself, if only he could see the light on the other side. If only.

-Until next time

Understanding the Illusion of Money and the Economic System Construct

599536_408238842561332_1916525460_n

By Julian Websdale

The name ‘Rothschild’ first appeared in the 18th century when Mayer Amschel Bauer established his banking empire in Frankfurt, Germany, and changed the family name. The Bauers were a notorious satanic family in Middle Ages Germany and the major Rothschilds remain master black magicians to this day. Mayer Amschel’s father, Moses Amschel Bauer, was a moneylender and proprietor of a counting house.

The Rothschild dynasty is controlled by the family’s satanic magicians who know how reality works and how they can manipulate energy and human perception. They know that money, like everything else, is energy and they have set up the financial system to exploit this knowledge. People talk about ‘flows of money’, but it is really flows of energy and they have created an energetic construct that ensures that the energy of money flows to them. We call this construct the ‘economic system’ or ‘the economy’ and it appears to consist of banks, financial houses, stock markets and other forms of trading; but all of these entities are just acupuncture points on the meridians of money to ensure that the wealth of the world flows to the bloodline families. It is because of this that the Rothschilds count their wealth in multiples of trillions and more.

The Rothschilds control the global financial system and have accumulated their power by theft and exploitation. Their whole system is based on a gigantic fraud because there is no money, as we perceive it. The paper money and coins are backed by nothing. Their value is only the value that we can be persuaded they have. They are just worthless pieces of paper (a promise-to-pay or promissory note) and pieces of metal that we are tricked into taking seriously. Most ‘money’ is not even something you can hold today; it is only figures on a computer screen. ‘Money’ is brought into circulation through what is called ‘credit’, but this ‘credit’ is a belief-system, that’s all – a belief that it exists. The banks are not lending us anything – they are creating it – and people are paying them a fortune to do so.

The bloodline families, particularly the Rothschilds, have controlled governments and banking for centuries and they have been able to dictate the laws of the financial system and introduce what is called ‘fractional reserve lending’. This allows banks to lend at least ten times what they have on deposit. In other words, they are lending ‘money’ they don’t have and that doesn’t exist – called ‘credit’ – and are charging interest on it.

When you go to a bank to borrow, say £50,000, you have to provide ‘collateral’ by signing over your house, land, car or business, and this will go to the bank if you don’t meet the repayments. The bank is giving you nothing in return for all this. It types into your account £50,000 and that’s it. The £50,000 doesn’t really exist – it is a line of non-existent ‘credit’. Say you give someone a cheque for £20,000 from the original £50,000 and the recipient deposits the money into another bank. Now this second bank can lend ten times the £20,000 to other people, quite legally, and charge them interest. When you follow the original £50,000 from bank to bank, the amount of ‘credit’ that is created as it circulates the banking system is absolutely fantastic. We are talking here about a single loan that was created out of thin air in the first place.

Understanding Illusory Money and the Economic System Construct

This is how the Rothschilds have come to own governments and most of the world. Interest on money is the key here. If money was put into circulation interest-free, and there was no interest on money in any form, it would return to its rightful role as a unit of energy exchange that overcomes the limitations of barter. It is when you introduce interest that the trouble starts because then you are making money from money and it no longer serves the people – it enslaves them. The bank credit/interest system means that the unit of exchange for human activity comes into circulation right from the start as a debt.

Governments could create their own money interest-free to pay for public services, but instead they borrow it from the banking system and the population has to pay it back, plus interest. It is the same with individuals and businesses. Governments don’t create their own interest-free money; they are controlled by the families who also control the banks, most notably the Rothschilds. Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by the Rothschilds when he began to print interest-free money called ‘greenbacks’ to fund the North in the American Civil War. The Rothschilds were funding both sides in the Civil War, as they do in all the wars they engineer, but Lincoln eventually refused to pay their phenomenal levels of interest. The greenback system worked so well that Lincoln was considering making it the permanent means of government finance. This was the worst nightmare for the Rothschilds. The Rothschilds had Lincoln assassinated by John Wilkes Booth in 1865 and the greenback policy went with him.

Understanding Illusory Money and the Economic System Construct

There is another vital aspect to understand about interest on money: when you take out a loan, the bank ‘creates’, in the form of ‘credit’, the amount of the ‘loan’. This sounds obvious and straightforward, except for one thing. You are not paying back only the loan; you are paying back the loan, plus interest, and the interest is not created, only the principle figure. This means that there is never even nearly enough ‘money’ in circulation to pay back all the outstanding loans and interest. It is a fatal flaw with regard to human freedom and it has been done purposely to ensure that bankruptcy and loss of property and possessions to the banks is built into the system. It is all part of the Rothschild energy-construct that flows the wealth and energy of the people in their direction. A fantastic amount of the money that people pay in taxes goes straight to the private banks to pay back interest on ‘money’ that the government could create itself, interest free, but doesn’t. ‘Privatisation’ is the selling of state assets in response to bank-created debt.

The world’s poorest countries are handing over control of their land and resources to the Rothschild banks when they can’t pay back the loans made specifically to ensnare them in this very situation. ‘Third World Debt’ was manufactured to replace physical occupation of resource-rich or strategically-situated countries with today’s financial occupation. Once a country is indebted to the Rothschild bankers with non-existent credit, it is forced to hand over control of its affairs to the banks, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). These entities then dictate economic and social policy at every level. The World Bank and IMF are wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Rothschilds and always have their place-men at the helm. Poor countries struggling to repay debt are forced to cut spending on social programmes, health, education and humanitarian projects to pay the banks the ‘debt’ they owe.

The world does not have to be in poverty and conflict. It is manipulated to be that way to serve the bloodline agenda for global dictatorship.

The United States of Apathy

apathy-quotes-6

“Five percent of the people think; ten percent of the people think they think; and the other eighty five percent would rather die than think.” ~ Thomas Edison

To examine the world today, politically and socially, is complex task. There are indeed so many complexities to the postmodern world that it is as if the more you learn, the less sure you become. It’s difficult to define exactly what postmodern even is.

The best way to analyze problems in order to find solutions is to simplify their dynamics. If we were to boil down the problems of the social and political problems of the world today we would find that there are some consistencies in what at first might seem like disconnected concoctions.

One of the main shared qualities is perhaps the tendency to for people act either as exploiters in pursuit of gaining control or, in contrast, are apathetic to exploiters. These behaviors – being exploitative or being apathetic to exploitation – are nearly never spontaneous but have been instituted into our societal systems. Indeed these modes may be so deeply engrained that we mistake them as being ‘natural’, and they go unnoticed. But an honest look at our present – the steering of our perceptions through media and tightening of laws regarding the sharing of information on subjects that might shake apathy – reveals that there exists a tendency among those at the top of our societal pyramid to limit our sensitivity to our own exploitation at the bottom of the pyramid.

It is surely not a natural tendency to be so exploitative, or to be so tolerant of exploitation. But today, there have never before been so many people so apathetic to to the exploitation going on around them, and the evil perpetuated against humanity has never been so extensive. Such unprecedented extremes can only be achieved by inches; by careful manipulation.

The Five Percenters

“There is natural ignorance and there is artificial ignorance. I should say at the present moment the artificial ignorance is at about eighty-five percent.” ~ Ezra Pound

The Nation of Gods and Earths is a community organization that began in New York City. The group, distinct from Nation of Islam, was founded by Clarence 13X, a member of Malcolm X’s N.O.I. congregation, before Clarence and then Malcolm left the N.O.I. The Nation of Gods and Earths, or Five Percenters, numerically theorized the pyramid system in the same manner as Edison and Ezra.

The theory is that 85% of people are lost. The 85% are easily misled and manipulated and die without knowing who they really are. The 10% are the exploiters of the poor and lost, the 85%. The 10% are responsible for and benefit from societal manipulation. And then there are the 5% – those who attempt to do the right thing and free the minds of the 85% from life under the thumb of the 10%.

The relationship between these natural roles within an exploited society can best be understood through the adage of the Wise Monkeys. This set of four is most often seen as a set of three, but there are indeed four parts. The Wise Monkeys are commonly known as Hear No evil, See No Evil and Speak No Evil. These are reactions, born out of fear. The fourth monkey is Fear No Evil, and he holds his dantien or lower abdominal region, the area of the body from which all actions root, as the Asian cultures that originally used the monkey allegory believe.

4 wise monkeys - speak see hear fear no evil

The 85% are described as blind and deaf to evil, and are like the monkeys with hands over eyes and ears. The 10% are referred to as the rich slave makers of the poor, and are like the monkey covering its mouth, holding the secrets of evil. And the rare 5% are known as the poor righteous teachers, or fear no evil, the fourth monkey. Fear No Evil does not take action or reaction in fear. In fact he is depicted in a meditative position. Symbolizing truth, the antithesis of evil, he exists without fear; fear of outsiders, fear of alternative perspective or lifestyles, fear of the truth, fear of what reality may be seen, heard or spoken.

Tricked to Do Evil

Perhaps this approximation of 85-10-5 has always been about constant in pyramidal/oligarchical societies. Perhaps there have always been around 10% who are slave makers, 85% who are oblivious and apathetic to their own bondage, and the 5% who seek to instigate consciousness among the 85% so that the 10% don’t kill us all.

Perhaps the point in time where modern became postmodern is when we developed the ability to kill ourselves via our own unsustainable routine.

The oligarchical pyramid system was and still is the norm in our society, no matter its perforations and peripherals, or how many people yet see it. All the world’s woes can be traced to this same dynamic: the greed and trickery of the 10%, the stark unaware apathy of the 85% and the righteous awareness of the 5%.

United States of ApathyBut it doesn’t have to be this way. As we start to acknowledge the paradigm of the oligarchical pyramid system we were born into – as seen through the representation of the 85%, 10%, 5% equation – we can understand more clearly the dynamics of individual and societal consciousness, and ultimately change the paradigm of our society for the better, growing the 5% over the revolutionary tipping point.

Will you be like the fourth monkey, the righteous teacher, the rebel who responds to postmodern greed and apathy by raising awareness among the unknowing?

Or will you cover your eyes and ears, and keep working to satiate the greed of those our society is constructed to benefit the most?

“A man can’t ride your back unless it’s bent.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

Simply acknowledging reality is enough to begin to enhance our understanding of it, and contribute to its betterment, just as acknowledging our consciousness is enough to begin its enhancement. In this twisted postmodern time of exploitation and energetic imbalance, a righteous teacher performs a profoundly powerful task, so valued across time and space. Like the fourth monkey, without fear, they act in the name of freedom, exemplifying the Five Freedoms of the First Amendment – those of free speech, press, religion, petition and assembly. Essentially these are the right to question, communicate, speak out, stop, and act. In this manner the First Amendment is not only a description of some of our inherent rights, but a prescription to protect those rights – the right to be a righteous rebel.

“When Government turns against the people, rebellion becomes a responsibility” ~ Unknown

Why We Have a Need to Know About the Esoteric

“You are not a human being in search of a spiritual experience. You are a spiritual being immersed in a human experience.”

shutterstock_47237605_cropresize
Esoteric knowledge has played a fundamental role in many civilizations throughout history, including our own, and yet the UK is looking to censor “esoteric material” across the internet by the end of this year. This is not being spoken about openly, and is likely to set a precedent for other proposed internet filters around the world, as the UK’s filter appears to have already been influenced by the French company Orange’s filtering of “esoteric practices” and “universally acknowledged sects” in the UK.

It may not be immediately apparent to most people as to what the implications of this are, and it seems at some level there is an attempt to take advantage of the lack of understanding of what the word “esoteric” actually means.

To many people, “esoteric” denotes something obscure, incoherent and belonging to the old libraries of mystical texts, and even as something negative to be feared. But in reality it is literally all around us and absolutely crucial to the understanding of our collective human history and experience. This is the reason why its censorship is so dangerous and should be ringing alarm bells for everybody.

Esoteric is simply a word that denotes something “hidden” and understandable to an enlightened few. Fundamentally, it describes the hidden nature of reality, and anyone who experiences it. Many believe that the physical world of matter is all there is, but although other realms and dimensions, consciousness, non-physical beings etc., are not ordinarily visible, they are widely reported by people who have near-death experiences, and likewise by those who have mystical experiences. The expression of the experience of these “esoteric” realms can literally be found almost everywhere, in religious texts, ancient cultures, traditions, and mythology; it has run through most societies just as it runs throughout ours today.

Anyone who gains experience through remote viewing, telepathy, altered states of consciousness, prayer, visions, dreams, religious or mystical experiences, psychic and paranormal phenomena, self-knowledge, or who has a supernatural encounter of any kind, etc., whether for good or bad purposes (because it’s possible to do both), is accessing normally hidden, or esoteric information about life and reality.

Glindoni_John_Dee_performing_an_experiment_before_Queen_Elizabeth_I

(The occultist, astrologer, and consultant to Queen Elizabeth I, John Dee, performing an experiment before her.)

This kind of esoteric knowledge can be found throughout religions—each containing a host of supernatural encounters and events etc. It can be found in yoga, meditation, the whole of the New Age, and even in the symbols of crop circles. Esotericism is not particular to any belief or tradition, but has existed in almost all of them. This is why so many similarities can be found between diverse spiritual texts and teachings, although separated by vast distances and time; esoteric practitioners all over the world and throughout history have, using a myriad of different techniques, discovered similar or the same information about the hidden nature of reality and expressed it according to their own unique environment and culture.

Esoteric symbols proliferate movies, music, and the entire entertainment industry. They are found in the institutions of society, such as governments, corporations, law and royalty, and have overtly done so throughout the world since recorded history from ancient Sumer and Egypt, through the Roman Empire, right up into the United States today.

The UK itself has a vast history of esoteric knowledge, stretching from at least the times of the ancient Neolithic and Beaker peoples who built some of its ancient megalithic sites, through the Druids, the legends of King Arthur, up unto the proliferation of diverse religious, spiritual and esoteric groups throughout the UK today. Queen Elizabeth I had an occultist and astrologer, the famous John Dee, serve as her consultant. Esotericism is even taught as a subject at universities in Amsterdam and Exeter in the UK. The 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic ceremonies were teeming with esoteric symbols – the central setting of the London opening ceremony was the ancient esoteric site of Glastonbury Tor, and the organizers of the Paralympic ceremony actually contacted the British Druid Order to get permission to use some of their ceremonial wording.

Esoteric societies are part of the history of the formation of much of the western world. President Roosevelt regarded the library founded by the great esoteric writer Manly P. Hall in Los Angeles, which housed a collection of ancient spiritual writings, a national treasure and had its contents copied (microfiched) during WWII to safeguard them. The United States republic was created in part out of secret societies, most notably Freemasonry; George Washington was a Freemason as were a number of the “Founding Fathers”. The Statue of Liberty bears an uncanny resemblance to the ancient goddess Hecate, and was created by a French Freemason. The US capital Washington DC is awash with esoteric symbols, as is the US dollar bill; today dark esoteric groups continue to control structures of power behind the scenes in order to exert their influence over the entire world.

The mainstream media has marginalized, demonized and effectively conducted a witch-hunt against people gathering to practice alternative spirituality and experience higher/mystical states of consciousness, whilst at the same time celebrating its use for dark purposes. Today the most popular music videos and live performances contain genuinely demonic esoteric symbols and rituals—with inverted crucifixes, mock sacrifices, satanic worship etc.

To those who don’t have experience of the hidden nature of reality, the esoteric symbols of ancient sacred teachings can appear obscure, nonsensical, even primitive, and are commonly misinterpreted and derided. In fact, the notion that anything but physical reality even exists is scoffed at by some. Yet those who have a shared experience of these hidden realities can understand them, and as the numbers of people who experience extra-sensory realities is rarely high, the word esoteric has come to describe a knowledge that is limited to a small few—but it doesn’t have to be that way.

The fact that knowledge of the esoteric aspects of our history have been stripped out of the school curriculum, the mainstream media, and now potentially out of the internet, is testament enough that those controlling society’s most powerful institutions, do not want people to know about it, and they have demonstrated a preference for engrossing the majority in rampant materialism based on the gratification of all things physical and sensory. And I might add, to subject them to malevolent esoteric symbols whilst blocking them from understanding what they are being subjected to.

The knowledge of hidden realities has been used against populations for sinister purposes throughout history—for domination, control, and deception. But it has also throughout history been used for good, to help raise people’s level of consciousness, to bring higher values into society, to empower people to control their own destiny, and alleviate suffering—it all depends on the hands it’s in. Therefore, it should not be taken out of the hands of the people, or those who would use it for good, and kept only for those in power who would prefer to keep the discussion of it censored.

Knowledge about the nature of existence, the purpose of life, alternative ways of understanding the universe and even knowledge of our own history, should not be censored, nor should our right to examine the use of esoteric knowledge by those in positions of authority, such as the secret societies of Bohemian Grove and Skull and Bones, which have been attended by numerous US presidents and many of the most powerful and influential people in the world. All human beings should be free to explore esoteric realms and likewise be free to express their findings and share them without restriction. This is crucial for the collective development of human consciousness, our creative potential, and our ability to work together to address the greatest questions and mysteries of life.

“The more humanity strays from its’ origin, the more we deny our bond with nature, the farther from perfection we become. We are the only creatures on the planet that use symbols in reference to something else. This documentary shows that we use symbols for absolutely everything the mind can conceive of. There is at least one word or icon or gesture to insinuate everything our five senses can detect and then some. But along with this beautiful gift comes a flaw.

Most people are unwilling to seek and create their own interpretations of these symbols. Instead, they blindly submit to preconceived definitions and connotations given by sources unknown. Because of this, many things have been predetermined in our understanding of life without our knowledge. Words can be perverted and used to manipulate rather than to inform. Symbols can be used to segregate rather than unite. And those given the responsibility and authority to disseminate information to the public possess the ability to do with it as they choose.” Ben Stewart

There is an Esoteric Agenda behind every facet of life that was once believed to be disconnected. There is an Elite faction guiding most every Political, Economic, Social, Corporate, some Non-Governmental or even Anti-Establishment Organizations. This film uses the hard work and research of professionals in every field helping to expose this agenda and put the future of this planet back into the hands of the people.

To let go of any belief, you don’t have to do anything.  You just have to recognize that it is a belief, not the truth.

Most people are under the incorrect assumption that money is the consequence of human evolution and thousands of years of barter and trade. As hard as this may be for some people to accept, that is an incorrect assumption.

Meticulous scrutiny of our human history shows very clearly that money was introduced several thousand years ago, by a small group of royal political elites as the supreme tool of enslavement of the masses. Since the very first introduction of money this small group of very powerful individuals have controlled the printing and supply of money, and thereby control the activities on planet Earth.

• Money is the obstacle to all progress
• The cause of all misery on Earth.
• Money is the major contributing factor to the gross separation and segregation in society.
• Money is the cause of 99% of crime.
• Money causes families to fall apart.
• Money is the driving force behind the SEVEN deadly sins and ego, gluttony, jealousy, greed, envy, lust and all the ugliest aspects of humanity.
• Money has been the motive behind most of the wars of the past 2000 years and funded by the bankers, often funding both sides for maximum profit and control.

The solution is quite clear. REMOVE the problem. Remove MONEY from society. It’s so engrained in us we can hardly imagine such a thing as no money. Well imagine harder, it worked great before. Unlearning is more important than learning. Re-member our dis-membered Selves.

There are some kinky people that desire, sexually and fully, to be controlled. They get pleasure out of it. It’s called sadomasochism, and they’re called subs for submissives. I’ve never been lucky enough to —scratch that — I’ve never had a willing loving sex slave, unless you count my right hand, and that’s in a sort of an emancipation proclamation by proxy. Having a sex slave that obeys and pleasures all my fantasies and enjoys doing so? What’s the problem? Sign me up. (I was joking about my right hand you perves, I have, ya know, touched myself in an impure manner, but I didn’t tie myself up first or anything weird). What was the point of this? Oh, yeah, at least the subs are aware and willing participants, and so maybe they have one up on the rest of us.

Most people don’t know they are unconsciously content to be controlled, we do have a natural herd instinct that has been exploited by a power system that doesn’t have our best interests in mind. People have no idea how much they give their personal power away every day. But they are aware of the results, feeling helplessness, frustrated, powerless, resentful etc. Seeing how you have allowed yourself to be controlled is an eye opener! Once you see it you then have a choice. Emotional vampires have a 6th sense for our subtle weaknesses. But always know that a vampire can only drain your energy if you invite them to do so. they are allowed to deceive us, but they can’t barge in and just suck our energy.

More than once I’ve seen a woman leave a man for drinking and end up with another drunk. Or someone going from one abusive relationship to another. It strikes me that one must fix oneself before leaving and going into another relationship. Doing so will take work, and we all hate work. But the rewards will be well worth it. An improved life is the aim, and education the game. Besides, getting to know yourself could and should be fun. Be your own best friend. It’s true that people only treat you as you allow them to. Be good to you. Fix the mind the body will follow.

PS (This goes much further than personal relationships. Family, friends, strangers, work place environment, etc  can all be completely different with more awareness about how we do things to set ourselves up to get walked on).
