“At a certain point the spiritual seeker always hits a certain stumbling block. Some insidious external force is relentlessly opposing spiritual progress. Traditionally it was blamed on ill-defined, malevolent beings like demons and devils. Almost all mystics have encountered them. These beings are real, and people in the past knew they existed, but did not understand who they were. We have finally gained a greater understanding of who those malevolent beings are and how they operate. They are a certain group of alien beings who have been present on this planet for a long time, and who are very good at opposing our spiritual progress.” ~Don Juan Mateus
All of us with spiritual inclination, understanding and experience will have met the predator. The dark dreams – the primal, gut twisting spiritual terror that renders us helpless… like a frightened frozen rabbit hypnotized by headlights.
And, when we try to search for the source of our unease, we find nothing but shifting sand between our spiritual fingers.
Yet, the imprint of a terrifying encounter with ‘something’ is embedded in our psyche – a memory of the horror that long ago, destroyed our innocence; imprisoned us in a sacrificial world, and confined a spiritual being to a fleshy, rotting suit of squirming appetites.
Lots of people instantly switch off – become cognizantly dissonant when we try to talk about esoteric matters. They can’t deal with anything that does not conform with the thinking of the status quo hive mind. But it is what it is…we cannot change their minds and neither should we try.
Understand… that most of you reading this blog dance to the beat of a different drummer – whether you know it or not
On our spiritual journey to wholeness we often encounter information that is contrary to our programming. We often dismiss it because it makes us feel uncomfortable – but that does not mean it is not relevant in spiritual understanding….. especially for those amongst us who wish for a brighter, more compassionate reality.
So, let’s step out of hive mind programming. Take a walk on the wild side of ‘what if’ and contemplate our spiritual fear from a different perspective.
Words Of Aboriginal Wisdom
In the video with this article, Credo Mutwa the Zulu shaman and oral historian tells of a time when there was no moon and women did not menstruate. Credo talks of the coming of the Chitauri – the predator. Don Juan’s ‘flyers’ and the Jinn of Islamic understanding.
Credo says his people were rounded up by the Chitauri and taken to caves. When they finally emerged from the darkness, they had sexual organs… some male – some female. We read in the scriptures: ‘Male and female he created them.’ Gen5 v2.
What are we to make of this?
Did a Divine Being that walked with Source Creator Gen1 v29… somehow get captured by a demon and genetically modified…closed down for an off planet agenda? Maybe even a food source. After all, in a reality of ‘ as above so below’, we have our inhumane cattle farms… don’t we? So, I think…boomerang wise, it is a real possibility….
The enemy of life cannot create it can only copy, and to achieve control of our thinking it acts as a chameleon constantly whispering all things to all men…holding the carrot of whatever we desire spiritually and physically right before our eyes. It has us figured out because it created us. It knows how we operate and the scope of the limited band of frequencies that it gave us – just 10% of our original capability as multi-dimensional beings.
So the managers of the farm have all the bases that control us covered: sex, food and entertainment – they clog our minds with trivia, tittivate our weaknesses, distract us with the game of ‘me versus you’ and ’us versus them’, while in the background they seek to undermine and destroy us. Oppose our spiritual progress….
If there is one thing to applaud in this horrible mess we call life, it is Metaphysical Law.
Lucifer is not omnipotent. He is a servant of the Laws he created for this construct. That is why the elite wear certain colours on different days of the week. Consult astrologers – hold blood sacrifices on auspicious days to keep themselves in power. The Law of Cause and Effect is the reason they have to tell us what’s in-store for us – they don’t want the havoc they are going to create to karmically come back through the mirror and slap them in the face. Hollywood is their medium of information. We call it fiction when really it’s fact.
You see, the elite are bound by the Metaphysical Laws that govern the construct. The only difference between the rulers and the people is: they’ know the Laws and we do not. Cosmic knowledge is withheld from us – but even though the scumbags have tried to erase and destroy metaphysical knowledge – in a Duality it has to remain accessible to the seeker.
So, let’s take a look at the past and see what information, we can glean.
The Ancient World
A quote from my article Pandora’s Box:
“We read in mythology about Agdistis, the hermaphrodite mother/father being of Oneness that Zeus/Lucifer castrated. By chopping off her male member, Lucifer instantly divided Agdistis into two separate parts. One became split into two and the third dimension of Duality was born. This cosmic act of violence against a divine being is honoured in the sexual mutilation cult of Cybele, and the satanic ceremonies of rape, sodomy and blood sacrifice practiced by the Luciferian ‘illuminated’ covens that are so prevalent today.”
The Timeless Truth
From the ancient world we move into modern times. The intuitive brilliance of scientific researchers like Carl Sagan, has allowed us to put together the missing pieces in the jigsaw of our past. In his book, ‘The Dragons of Eden’, Sagan writes about many strange anomalies in our genetic code. One of which is the genetic modification of the female pelvis to allow for birthing babies with larger heads.
In the scriptures we read “and god cursed Eve with painful childbirth.”
“In order to keep us obedient, meek and weak, the predators engaged themselves in a stupendous maneuver- stupendous, of course, from the point of view of a fighting strategist; a horrendous maneuver from the point of view of those who suffer it. They gave us their mind! Do you hear me? The predators give us their mind which becomes our mind. The predators’ mind is baroque, contradictory, morose, and filled with the fear of being discovered any minute now…” ~Don Juan Mateus
The increase in the size of the human cranium may well have come into being with the addition of the R/Complex…the reptile mind of ‘me first’ that is needed to survive in this fabricated dimension of constant conflict. The owners of this construct would need to ensure that most of its creation survived in its virtual and sacrificial dog eat dog world – hence our programmed ‘instinctual survival reactions’ and the drive to constantly replicate in world of emotionally charged energy.
Is it possible that we have been trapped in a separate reality – a small sliver of energy called visible light? Did we suffer a genetic downgrade? Were we hijacked from our high estate and forced to fall from multi-dimensional beings to chemically induced animals, poor controlled creatures that constantly breed and fight for alpha male status called the pecking order of life.
The Next Downgrade – Homo Borgiensis
Under the guise of convenience and progress, we as a species are slowly being led away from our mystical and spiritual connection with Source Creation. We are being engineered into a ‘smart’ world of electromagnetic pollution, self-aware machines, D wave quantum computers and the sky net electromagnetic grid. The Luciferian elite are trying to alter, modify and manipulate the human genome to usher in full spectrum dominance of the human mind, and with it – a new dark age of slavery and control.
Digital reality means the loss of spiritual reality and with the micro chip the borg is born.
Well, it’s happening right before our eyes and lives.
The New York Times reported on Nov. 26th, 2018 that a Chinese scientist had claimed to have made the first genetically modified babies using a powerful gene editing technology called Crispr. The claim that China had already made genetically altered humans came just as the world’s leading experts were jetting into Hong Kong for the Second International Summit on Human Genome Editing.
You can bet your bottom dollar that gene editing has been going on in secret for a long time and there are genetically enhanced ‘people’ living alongside us today. Although this technology will be presented as a miracle cure for inherited disease: sickle-cell anemia – downs syndrome – cystic fibrosis and many others, it has a very dark side.
The dark side of this gene editing technology is that a super race can be created. The master race – the eugenicists dream of Aryan purity. I think this is the agenda of the predator – the ‘off planet’ toxic genetic code that has always been a problem on this earth.
In a Duality there is always an opposition to evil and we must be careful that we do not get drawn into the game. There is only the One Life…a life that transcends the Separation that was forced upon us. So let’s honour it.
Where Do We Go From Here?
Ephesians 6:12-13 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in high places. Therefore take up the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day.”
Where There is No Hurt There is No Sin
What does the full armour of God mean? It is the understanding that there is only One Life and everything partakes of it. Therefore to deliberately harm another living being whether animal, bird or reptile is to bring retribution and suffering upon self. Everything we do from this moment on is down to us….
In the words of the wise: “I build a lighted house and therein dwell.”
We are all on a personal journey…mine is to break the matrix programme within myself.

Dear Family And Friends: It’s Time To Wake Up
Phillip J. Watt, Guest Writer
I know you’ve struggled to deal with many of the harsh truths of the world, yet there’s also so much brilliance to this reality that I don’t want you to miss out on as well. But to feel that side of the coin, it’s necessary to face how it all works on the systemic and material levels.
It’s no surprise to anyone that greed and vanity has spread like wildfire across our modern minds. So much, so that our collective heart has been suffocating under their toxic weight. Yet there’s no need to despair; there are many people who have stepped into the authenticity of their heart and are working towards bringing some sanity, honour and justice to our mad world.
War. Poverty. Rape. Hatred. The list goes on. These realities might be ‘normal’ in the context of humanity’s history, but it doesn’t always need to be this way. We literally have the technology, know-how and spirit to finally create an existence where the basic needs of humanity are met, especially that deep sense of communion and comradery with our fellow-man which most of us are missing.
This alone will rectify so much of the pain-based behavior that is highly influenced from not just individual and collective trauma, but a subtle feeling of being disconnected and unloved.
So it is true that many individuals are vile in their action – both to themselves and others – on so many levels. But as hard as it is to accept, there is a ruling class that is just as much, if not more, disgusting in their behavior.
For starters, our money supply has been stolen. If you don’t know what this means, you simply need to understand that so-called money is created out of nothing by punching numbers into a computer and then the banking oligarchs reap the profits, instead of our local communities. It really is that simple.
That’s not the only aspect to the system they’ve thieved either. Medicine has been converted into toxin-rich synthetic derivatives instead of using natural substances, such as cannabis, to heal the body’s ill infrastructure. To continue with that example, did you know that the human body has an endocannabinoid system where its receptors easily absorb the healing agents provided by cannabis? That’s why those poor little kids having epic seizures respond so well to cannabis oil.
Then of course there’s the mainstream media. This highly monopolized and corporatized public utility has been turned into a propaganda outlet for maintaining the status quo. You get little snippets of truth here and there, but the big pictures, the truths we need to know, will not be publicized via these channels.
And another prime example is that macro governmental policy is dictated by corporate structures which are controlled by the uber rich. That’s why the left/right political paradigm is also known as a two-party tyranny, because they’re both controlled by the same interests. Simply, lobbyists, under the table deals and political puppets are the norm in our current era, not genuine people representing their genuine community interests.
And I know this one is really going to be difficult to face, but pedophilia is not just rampant throughout our society, but also within the upper echelons of our class structure too. Think about it like this; remember how so-called royalty used to marry their young cousins etc? Well that’s more or less how it still works today, minus the marriage.
So the reality is that child trafficking and their sexual exploitation is still commonplace, as hard as that is to deal with. There are literally thousands of children suffering at the hands of these psychopaths, as you read. Do you want to know how they justify it? This is another challenging concept to entertain, yet regardless, it’s very, very real.
They literally believe they are the gods or rulers of humanity, so they can do as they please regardless if it breaks the code of natural law and its primary principle of ‘do no harm unless in self-defence’. This has resulted from their practice of occult knowledge, which is just another way of saying they manipulate energy – and people – to suit their dark agenda.
So yes, they practice what some might call magic. This interaction with the energy field, something that we all do whether we know it or not, can either be conducted with impure or pure intentions, which leads me onto the reverence of our world.
We are not only separate, physical beings. This is true on one level, but a deeper level is that we are interconnected via an energy that goes by many names. They include chi, life force, prana, zero point energy, God, love, orgone or just consciousness itself, to name but a few. This flow of energy permeates all things and can be manipulated by thought, feeling, or a variety of actions, including ritual and meditation.
It’s not hard to see this when we think critically about it either. Ecologically we are interdependent with our fellow earth and her life beings, which illustrate that without one or another we wouldn’t have evolved to where we are today. But for those people who are prepared to test their rationality, quantum physics clearly shows that not only are we interrelated on one of the most fundamental levels of our existence, but also that the so-called material world exists as only one out of an infinite number of possibilities, until it’s co-manifested into an actual experience.
In other words, this holographic construct, where everything is but a reflection of everything else, is a co-creative and intimately intertwined reality.
So if this is all new to you, it’s about time you did some serious research don’t you think? Don’t believe me, don’t believe any so-called expert either; just acknowledge that forever and always the mainstream view has always been incomplete, so it’s up to ourselves to put in a noble effort to journey towards the truth.
Now of course, you’ll never fully wake up. None of us will. It isn’t a race to see who can get to the finish line first; it’s an individual experience of continually becoming more conscious, whilst others do the same too.
So when I say ‘wake up’, I’m referring to at least becoming conscious of the magic, as well as the illness of our world. I’m sure when you think about it, you’re probably a reflection of that dis-ease too, especially when the majority of people are battling stress, sadness and/or a variety of sicknesses that are pandemic in our so-called modern era.
All this suffering – all this pain – is of course a reflection of the way the system has been run, or should I say hijacked, too.
Ultimately, you need to be an authentic human. Fu*k all this consumerism and competition and running a race with the rats, instead connect with your true nature and your true self and watch your world transform along with it.
You don’t just need it for you, reality needs it from you too.

Doctor Explains The Pineal Gland & Its Destruction By Toxic Chemicals (Video)
The pineal gland, which is also known by many cultures as the third eye or the seat of the soul, is located in your brain and many believe that this is the gateway to the afterlife. Dimethyl-tryptamine (DMT) is produced here naturally and is released in small amounts when we dream and when we die.
Many mystics and cultures around the world believe that this gland is our direct connection to our higher selves, or consciousness. Unfortunately, various chemicals in our environment have been shown to block access to this gland, which in turn can make it more difficult to connect to our spiritual nature and thus, our true selves.
Meet Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt
Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt is Founder of the Klinghardt Academy (USA), the American Academy of Neural Therapy, Medical Director of the Institute of Neurobiology, and lead clinician at the Sophia Health Institute, located in Woodinville, Washington. He is also Founder and Chairman of the Institute for Neurobiology in Germany and Switzerland. Klinghardt Academy (USA) provides teachings to the English-speaking world on biological interventions and Autonomic Response Testing assessment techniques.
Klinghardt has lectured at the universities of Illinois, Utah, Freiburg, Adelaide, Capital University (Washington DC) and others, and the medical schools of Geneva and Zurich. Between 1996 and 2005, he was Associate Professor at the Department of Applied Neurobiology at Capital University. He is regularly invited to teach workshops at the prestigious Medicine Week in Baden-Baden, Germany and the International Lyme and Associated Diseases (ILADS) conferences. Among his books is the ground-breaking Psychokinesiology “A new Approach in Psychosomatic Medicine” on muscle feedback-guided psychotherapy. Many of his teachings, manuals, seminar DVD’s and clinical tools are available through his website www.klinghardtacademy.com.
In the following video, Dr. Klinghardt shares his concerns for the various environmental factors that are affecting our pineal glands directly.
This video serves as a reminder to us all to be aware of these toxins–what we are putting into our bodies and exposing ourselves to.
“The pineal gland is the most sensitive part of our central nervous system and it is highly sensitive to 4 things: aluminium, glyphosate, fluoride and WiFi.”
More Interesting Info
At the Third International Symposium on Vaccines in March 2014 and as part of the 9th International Congress on Autoimmunity, MIT scientist Dr. Stephanie Seneff gave a presentation titled “A Role for the Pineal Gland in Neurological Damage Following Aluminum-adjuvanted Vaccination.”
In her heavily cited paper, she explains how many common neurological disorders, like Autism and Parkinson’s, for example, have a common origin. These are: an insufficient supply of sulphate to the brain and enhanced toxic metal exposure (e.g., aluminium, mercury) due to our impaired ability to detoxify and eliminate them. She also shows that such metals interfere with sulphate synthesis, causing cellular debris to accumulate.
It goes on to explain that Heparan sulphate in the lysosomes is critical for recycling cellular debris, garbage, and damage that could lead to disease. Multiple studies have shown that a deficiency in Heparan sulphate levels leads to autism. In summary, the paper points to the idea that autism and Alzheimer’s disease, rates of which continue to rise, are caused by a severe deficiency in sulphate supplies to the brain, and that the Pineal Gland, which Rene Descartes called “the seat of the soul” can synthesize sulphate stimulated by sunlight, and deliver it via melatonin sulphate. Aluminium, mercury, and glyphosate, working together, can derail this process. They work synergistically.
In conclusion, the researchers state:
“In this paper, we have developed the argument that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide, Roundup, and aluminum, a pervasive toxic metal in our environment, operate synergistically to induce dysfunction in the pineal gland leading to the sleep disorder that is characteristic of multiple neurological diseases, including autism, ADHD, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, anxiety disorder and Parkinson’s disease. We further argue that impaired supply of melatonin and sulphate to the brain as a consequence of pineal damage can explain how the disrupted sleep can lead to more general neurological damage, and we propose that this is a significant component of the disease process. The steady increase in glyphosate usage on corn and soy crops aligns remarkably well with the increase in sleep disorder and in autism, as well as other neurological diseases. We have shown how disruption of CYP enzymes and promotion of anemia and hypoxia, due to both aluminium and glyphosate, and disruption of gut bacteria by glyphosate, can cause a pathology leading to deficiencies in both melatonin and sulphate in the cerebrospinal fluid that is characteristic of autism and Alzheimer’s disease. Insufficient sulphate leads to impaired lysosomal recycling of cellular debris, and insufficient melatonin leads to sleep disorder, vascular disease and impaired protection from ROS damage in the brain.”
So, What Can We Do?
As he says, he hopes that this is just a coincidence that all of these factors combined are so destructive to our pineal glands, but are there really any coincidences? Thankfully, we can avoid some of these contaminants.
Take fluoride for example, some of us, especially if we are living in Europe, excluding the UK, or many areas of Canada, don’t have to worry about fluoride in our water, but unfortunately most Americans don’t have this luxury. There are various water filters that will remove fluoride, and buying filtered water such as distilled or reverse osmosis is an option as well.
In terms of glyphosate, a pesticide used abundantly in modern agriculture, a very simple solution to this is to switch to organic produce and to drastically limit or avoid processed foods, specifically genetically modified organisms (GMOs). I understand that organic produce can be expensive, in which case just do your best! Consider using the Clean 15 and Dirty Dozen lists for your reference to know which foods should always be purchased organic and which ones aren’t that big of a deal.
WiFi– This one is a bit trickier, as it is pretty much everywhere! Most of us have it in our houses, and it can be found virtually everywhere in cities. Of course, you can always go back to a good old wired internet connection, but unless you are living out in the middle of nowhere, you can’t really escape it completely. This is why it’s a good idea to spend time away from screens and practice grounding (walking on the bare earth with no shoes, hugging trees, swimming in natural bodies of water) as often as you can. This will help to ground your energy and emit negative ions into your body. Just being in nature, away from WiFi, for an extended period of time or as often as you can will certainly do your body good, and your mind and spirit!
In terms of aluminium — this one is tricky… aluminium is found in many foods, many prescription drugs, vaccines and chemtrails. Luckily, we can detox aluminium from the body by following safe protocols and do what we can to limit our exposure from environmental factors.
As the doctor said, these 4 factors combined are what cause the most damage, so if we can do what we can to drastically limit our exposure to them as much as possible then that’s a huge step in the right direction. It’s also important to know that the information provided here is not designed to be a scare tactic or to leave you in fear, it’s meant to raise awareness and empower you to make the best decisions for the health and safety of you and your loved ones.
The first step towards change is awareness, and in order to create any sort of change we need to first be aware.

When Two Souls Are Destined To Be Together, They Will Always Find Their Way Back
While you might have heard the saying ‘when you love someone let them go, if it’s meant to be they will come back to you’ have you ever given it any thought? Sure, it might sound a bit outlandish it is quite true for a number of reasons.
When two people have a deep connection with one another and are actually meant to be together they sometimes have to go on a journey before coming back together. We all have to heal in our own ways before we can truly be with the people who matter most to us. If you come together with a person that you have a real connection with at the wrong point in your life it is inevitable that you part ways whether you know you will come back together eventually or not.
Sometimes we meet someone only for a moment and then years down the line come together to spark up something more. The universe works in very peculiar ways. While you might not believe in fate or anything of the sort it is a concept that you might want to look into more. It is not all it seems, for some people, it is much less intense and for some, it shakes their entire being.
If you are meant to be with someone, they will come back to you no matter how long it takes. The two of you will find one another and you will be able to really come together in a way that you were not possible to before. You can’t spend your whole life waiting for someone to come sweep you off your feet. You have to be true to yourself and grow as a person before the universe will present you with someone that really puts you on top of the world whether you’ve already met them before or not.
While I am not saying every person we think we love is going to come back to us, the ones that are meant to come back to us will. This can be applied to relationships, friendships and so forth. We cannot control other people, and we damn sure can’t control the universe. Allow the universe to do for you what it wants and see where you end up.
If you give it away, it will come back. Some of the most important things in our lives are not meant to be in our lives from start to finish. That period in-between where we are apart turns us into who we are meant to be. Whether a person comes back or not they still leave a lasting mark on your heart.

It’s All Bullshit – But Knowing It Sets You Free
Gary Z McGee, The Mind Unleashed
“We should go and proclaim without cease and remind people at every step of what we are: that our capacity for self-delusion has no limits and that anybody who believes anything is mistaken.” ~Czesla Milosz
Authentic growth requires conflict. Your precious beliefs must come up against a question mark as sharp as Occam’s Razor, or you will inadvertently fall into a prison of intellectual and spiritual stagnation.
Allow the razor-sharp question-mark to slice and dice its way through the beliefs you cling to for dear life. Allow it to shed the superfluous-certainty away from the juicy-uncertainty of what you believe to be true. The alternative is remaining stuck in fixed and rigid thinking. The alternative is being buried in all the bullshit.
Why is it all bullshit? Simply because we live in a meaningless universe. Now, that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t create our own meaning despite this fact, it just means that despite whatever meaning we manage to create, we will still always be living in a meaningless universe. No matter the created meaning, that meaning will always be “bullshit” (some things less bullshit than other things, of course) in the grand scheme of things. And that’s okay. It must be okay if we are to get out of our own way as a species and progressively evolve in a healthy way. We just have to keep it in perspective that it’s all bullshit to some degree or other.
But don’t take my word for it. Do your own research. Be imaginative. Do your own deep questioning. Find your own epistemological crisis. Discover your own reason to use Occam’s Razor.
I’d lend you McGee’s Guillotine but I’m using it to write Self-inflicted Philosophy. So far, I’m only certain about the last sentence of the thousand-page treatise on the human condition. And it’s this: Then again, I could be full of shit.
Question Your Delusions:
“The human mind is a delusion generator, not a window to truth. The best any human can do is to pick a delusion that helps him get through the day.” ~Scott Adams
We’re all delusional to some degree or another. But some people are more delusional than others. Those who are more delusional tend to get caught up in their delusions. They tend to dependently cling to them and become rigidly dogmatic.
But some people are less delusional than others. They are the ones who make a point of questioning their own delusions first and the delusions of others second. They are strategically sceptical and open-minded, using logic, reasoning, and the law of probability like scalpels on the confused psychology of the human condition.
As far as allowing the journey to be the thing, the difference between questioning rather than clinging to one’s delusions is vital.
Don’t be a clinger. Be a questioner. Be curious about the human condition. Have a sense of humour about it. Keep your question-mark sharp and ready to cut through any amount of bullshit that comes at you. Especially your own.
Cull The Cult Of Positivity:
“These mountains that you’re carrying, you were only supposed to climb.” – Najwa Zebian
Happiness is overrated. “Good vibes only” is just plain laziness. Get out from underneath the burden of needing to be happy and positive all the time. That’s too much weight to be carrying around. Take it easy on yourself. Stop being so damn serious all the time. Especially about happiness, positivity, and love. You’re not perfect and you never will be.
Your “love & light” could use a little “tough love & darkness.” Forcing yourself to be positive and happy all the time is just an ego trap set up by the scared-shitless part of you that doesn’t want to face the shittyness of life. It’s a strategic safe zone propped up by your cowardice and weakness.
Stop sugar-coating your bullshit. Stop demonizing sadness. You cannot be happy all the time. Happiness, like sadness, is a passing storm across the sky of the Self. Some storms are refreshing and invigorating, like happiness. Some are painful and rough, like sadness. Both can be overwhelming. And both are merely information. They just happen to be information that you “feel.”
As far as information goes, pain and sadness will teach you more than comfort and happiness ever will. Use that information to make yourself healthier, and happiness will become a convenient by-product of your self-improvement. The best you can do is hope for the best and be prepared for the worst. And nothing prepares you for the worst better than the vital information gleaned from pain and sadness.
Transform Your “Triggers” Into Curiosity:
“When an honest man realizes that he is mistaken, he will either cease being mistaken or cease being honest.” ~Unknown
Are you a precious little snowflake who gets triggered all the time (perhaps even the word “snowflake” triggers you)? Perhaps shock value art triggers you? Perhaps satire triggers you? Perhaps anything “the other side” says triggers you?
Transform your triggers into curiosity. Ask yourself: why do I feel so emotional about this petty little thing in the grand scheme of things? Is it merely a knee-jerk reaction due to my cultural conditioning, political bias, or religious brainwashing? Am I experiencing cognitive dissonance, or any number of other psychological fallacies? Am I reacting out of fear, cowardice, ignorance? Have I lost perspective that it’s all bullshit, especially my own beliefs? Am I capable of being brutally honest with myself?
Dig deep. Be playful about it. Have a sense of humour. Being curious about something, rather than just triggered by it, is always more rewarding. You will always gain more from a curious experience over a triggered one.
It’s a kind of emotional alchemy. Feel the trigger, honour it, let it fill you with petty anger and misguided rage, and then turn the tables on it by becoming curious about why it makes you feel so raw. Feel triggered, just act with curiosity. You may discover something about yourself that being triggered alone would never have revealed.
Don’t Take It Personal, Make It Motivational:
“Never relinquish your ability to doubt, reflect, and consider other options –your rationality as an individual is your only protection against the madness that can overcome a group.” ~Robert Greene
Do you have the tendency to take yourself or your beliefs too seriously? Do you cling to the precious bullshit of your beliefs so tightly that you feel injured at the slightest bit of pushback from other more questioning, nondogmatic, outside-the-box thinkers?
Get over yourself. Full stop! Get out of your own way. Let go of your ego’s attachment to your beliefs. Your current belief system is a rickety bridge built on quicksand at best. It’s stopgap pretense at worst.
But, and here’s the rub: that’s okay! Have a laugh at yourself. It’s okay to admit that you don’t have it figured out and neither did the fallible humans who came before you and created the flimsy structure of your belief.
Nobody has anything figured out. We are all fumbling, stumbling, fallible, imperfect beasts with big brains vainly attempting to pigeonhole our beliefs into untenable boxes that we lord over each other with ignorant terms such as “sacrilege” and “Satan” and “my god is the one true god.”
The key to staying ahead of the curve when it comes to bullshit (whether it’s yours or someone else’s) is to realize, deep down—balls to bones, ovaries to marrow—that nobody has anything solid figured out about the universe and the way it works. No religion, ideology, philosophy, or politics has the answer. It’s all questionable. It’s all precarious.
Question it all. Don’t take it personally. Make it motivational instead by daring yourself to question things to the nth degree. Don’t take yourself so seriously. Self-improve instead. Keep your bullshit and the bullshit of others in perspective by constantly reminding yourself that nobody (no matter how “enlightened”) and no ideology (no matter how “sacred”) will ever have the answers? Realize that the only “answer” is to question all answers (including this one, ad infinitum).
