On Politics

I admit it; I used to be a staunch Republican who pretty much supported Bush 100%.

Oh how the times have changed....

Now, I have a completely different outlook on politics. I view it in much the same way as religion now:

A system designed for CONTROL & MANIPULATION of the masses.

Now, for most people, like me in the past, this isn't immediately noticable. Yeah, for hundreds of years we have had people screaming about "oppression" of the people and so on.

I'm sure you've heard it all before. I never really considered anything those people used to say. I always thought they were loonies, people with deep-seated emotional/psychological issues.

I think the big turning point for me, personally, was coming across what might be called "4th Way" teachings by the schools made public and famous by Georges Gurdjieff. I'll go into this in more detail in a future post but suffice it to say for now that it got me to start analyzing DATA and thinking in "scientific" terms instead of emotional terms.

To myself and my way of thinknig now this has been an indispensible tool for "awakening".

Once I removed the emotional content from my thinking of politics I really could no longer LIE to myself (and others) by ignoring what I was seeing in the world. I made a connection between what happens in religion and what happens in politics! The control and manipulation I spoke of earlier.

An interesting side note to this is about the actual infiltration and corruption of these two institutions by the "powers that be" that work in subtle way to change the very foundations that the institutions were built upon. In layman's terms, they started out "for the people by the people" but since they gave people "power" they got corrupted and changed. You can look to the early Gnostic Christian writitngs to see this. Also, if you read works of the "Founding Fathers" you'll see that our Gov. has become EXACTLY what the Founders feared! Read the book "Political Ponerology" for more information of this type.

Now, on to the manipulation of the people by gov. Ususally, this type of manipulation is so subtle only the most aware/awake people notice the beginning of the process. You can EASILY see the EFFECTS however. Look at the Palestinian conflict, the whole Iran deal and high gas prices.

Look for patterns; for example, anytime we seem to be getting close to peace in the Middle East, what happens? Something ALWAYS comes around that disrupts it. Assassinations, the "sudden illness" of a leader, "coincidental" terrorist attacks. You can see it over and over. Why do I think this happens? Because of subtle manipulations. In fact, it has gotten so I have been able to begin to see these patterns everywhere in the world, just by reading between the lines (i.e. knowing the tools of manipulation used by the power that be). Awareness and knowledge are the keys here.

Look at the whole Iran situation. I think it can be stated (again by acute observation) that the PTB want strife in the Middle East. Usually, thier boy Bush is all up for that. But the Iraq war has left a bad taste in people's mouths, so I think Bush and company actually thought it might be a good idea to NOT invade because his poll numbers are so low and the Republicans are taking a beating. So he hesitates...And lo and behold what happens? Here comes a "psychopath" into power in Iran, who nothing but the goal to "poke" Bush constantly. Thus, the manipulators set it up so that they will STILL get their way, i.e. an unstable Iran, and thusly a more unstable Middle East.

I don't like to make predictions because I don't believe in a "set" future. However, it will be interesting to see how many "attacks" and such get "funded" by Iran, or which Iran gets the blame. Not to say of course that Iran really WON'T do anything, but the REAL KEY HERE is who ultimately BENEFITS?

Or So I think...

On Religion

Well here it is Easter again. Another religious holiday that really doesn't mean anything. Sure, I enjoy spending time with my family and the good food, but the point of the holiday nags at me. And it nags at me because it is a christian holiday.

Now, why does that bother me? Because I see Chritianity IN IT'S CURRENT FORM as nothing more than a control mechanism, akin to politics.

Now, Gnotsic Christianity seemed to me to be a much more "pure" religion. Well, the Catholic church couldn't have that, so they went on "Crusades" that pretty much wiped the "heretics" out. Nice. As a side rant, the Jesuits wiped out a bunch of the Mayan knowledge too. Just think of all of the ancient lore we lost!

Good work guys.


Anyway, reading the Gnostic texts one finds (or so I think) a different picture of Jesus and the things he REALLY said. It usuallky surprises people to find out that the Bible REALLY HAS changed over time, and not just because of translation errors. If you have the time and the inclination you can track this yourself.

So when you are "thinking religion" this weekend, keep and open mind and check out "The Gospel of Thomas". Then, if you want, check out the other Gnostic gospels...Then if you are able to have an open mind you MIGHT be able to throw some of the chains of control off of yourself. Because, these writing will let you see how the bible isn't divine.

Also, as always, the Cassiopea web site and the Signs of the Times website have great information on this topic.

Why the world is the way it is (Or so I Think)

In September of 2003 my life was about to change, but from the way I was feeling at the time I'd never have thought it so.

That was when I began to wake up to reality, and though the process has been difficult I wouldn't trade the experiences for anything.

This blog will be where I share ideas with everyone, and attempt to network and learn.

It started one day as I mentioned above. I was laying around in my bedroom feeling very down and depressed. I turned on the TV and was watching the Sci-Fi channel when a program came on about alien abductions. I thought it was an interesting topic, one that I must admit had piqued my curiosity in the past. So I started to do some research and figured "Well, if it is all BS, at least it is something to pass the time". I read some "stories" from abductees but nothing really resonated with me so I started to search on some other topics and ran across a site on the occult. And that leads me to where I am, almost three years later.

I like to use the allegory of the "Matrix" movies to describe the real world. Mankind has been asleep to the REAL world for hundreds of thousands of "years". You can easily look around and observe the world as it is and see nothing but grief and negativity. Anger. Suicide. Predators everywhere feeding off "weaker" beings. People going/acting crazy. Unless you live under a rock you have experienced it.

But people like me wonder "Why?". Why is the world the way it is? Religions attempt to explain this in the duality of "good vs. evil". But I don't have any use for religions (any of them) because when you step-back and look at them they are dis-empowering mechanisms of control, fraught with myth and time-altered teachings.

So where does that leave us then? Are we inherently "bad" as a species?

Unfortunately, the answer is quite astonishing to most people. The reason the world is the way it is, is because we (humans) are food for hyperdimensional beings.

So, you are probably thinking, "Let me get this straight Don. We get eaten by aliens huh?". Well, again, the answer is not that straightforward. What they feed off of is NEGATIVE EMOTION. So, they gave us THEIR mind, the mind of the predator, that generates ample opportunity for negativity to flow to them and feast off of us, much the same way we "eat" chickens. Or cows. Or spinach.

Now, I realize how the above two paragraphs sound. But, I ask you to look around and THINK. Think with a hammer. It DOES tend to help explain the world that we live in. We are "programmed" to generate negativity. And the "leaders" of our world are duped (dance for me Bojangles!) into putting "us", their sheep, into even MORE situations that create negativity.

Remember Neo? How it was when he awoke? It was a major shock to his system.

As I am sure it is to many of you.

Here are two GREAT resources to help-one in one's quest to awaken:

The Cassiopaen Experiment
