More of my world views, insights, thoughts, observations

12/10/2015
  1. Oscar Wilde was quoted as saying that anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination. Materialistically speaking, living by this notion will bind us with shackles to a life of debt servitude. When we rip those shackles of debt from our wrists, our minds become clear and we see what truly makes us happy. We spend more time with friends and family. We focus on our passions and hobbies. In essence, we get back to the foundation of what it means to be human. After all, none of us will ever arrive upon the mountain of our last moments of existence wishing we spent more time at the office. We will instead arrive wishing we completed that book, that painting or that experience with those we love most. For those can be purchased not with debt, but with time. And there is no more cunning, covert and deceitful thief of time as that villain we call debt.
  2. The Internet is watching us now. If they want to. They can see what sites you visit. In the future, television will be watching us, and customizing itself to what it knows about us. The thrilling thing is, that will make us feel we’re part of the medium. The scary thing is, we’ll lose our right to privacy. An ad will appear in the air around us, talking directly to us. ~Steven Spielberg
  3. But then at a gathering, I transgressed again, met someone who shook her head and said, “How can the Russian people support Putin?” I told her we can’t expect factual reportage about Putin’s motivations or the support he receives, either from our corporate-owned media or from Russia’s state-owned media. She seemed perplexed, as if to say, “Who can we trust if not our television sets and newspapers?”
  4. Can you tell the truth from the lies in the mainstream mass media? Few people can and even fewer want to. That is my observation.
  5. The future of the individual depends on his ability to analyse information and disinformation with great acuteness, and on the ability to use his imagination and creative power to the fullest. Those two capacities, which have eroded or have been laid aside in modern life, are paramount. In other words, no matter what the collectivist society of the planet throws at the individual in the years to come, he can not only remain who he is; he can find greater and higher and deeper levels of Self and power. There is no final reality that is external to the individual, to which he must bow down and sacrifice his future. Taken out of the hands of elite controllers, reality evolves for the individual as he penetrates ingeniously designed false fronts, and as he invents his own profound future. You could summarize the history of planet Earth as the actions of elite groups who say: “This is reality, and that is reality, and over there is the final reality behind all other realities.” They design a maze, in which all discoveries lead back to their power, not yours.
  6. Accident: An unfortunate incident that happens unexpectedly and unintentionally, typically resulting in damage or injury
  7. The mainstream news is laden with disinformation, propaganda and corporate agendas that do not have the public’s best interests at heart.
  8. The Matrix, the central image, is a lie. But not just any lie. It is very deep, shared, hypnotic picture of reality. People need more power—more individual power, so they can both stand and operate outside the Matrix. The entire mural of imposed reality is aimed at radically diminishing the individual’s power.
  9. We are told that some few hundred thousand African and Asian exiles are now causing a great “refugee crises” all over Europe! Governments and media are spreading panic, borders are being re-erected and armed forces are interrupting the free movement of people. But the number of foreigners illegally entering Europe is incomparably smaller than the number of Western migrants that are inundating, often illegally, virtually all corners of the world.
  10. The marketing and advertising industry know, more than anyone else, what motivates the human mind and how to tap into those instinctual drives. To defend against this industries seductiveness, we need to journey within ourselves and bring to light what’s really important to us. What most of us will find is that experiences and time well spent, not materials, are what makes us happy… experiences have been proven to make us happier than material possessions.
