Safe place

In the end

There will be no safe place

No America to run to

No caves to hide inside

No forests to conceal us

No safe place

Except the secret places inside

Our hearts and inside our minds

Although that to

Is under attack.

Deceived

You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time. But you can never fool all of the people all of the time.

I believe they expected more people to be deceived. Generations of lies and propaganda through media, public schools, and even colleges. Although effective, not 100% effective.

Some are just born with a spiritual immune system a friend once told me. I don’t know if I agree, that we were born that way. But instead somehow obtained one by having wise parents, or open-minded friends, or maybe some of us didn’t watch enough TV, or asked too many questions in school, or read too much. What is the common denominator here?

The deceived have already complied. Most of them are already lost. Now it just remains for the deceived to bully and guilt the undeceived into compliance. Sort of an Adam and Eve with the forbidden fruit scenario playing out here. Adam was not deceived. But he ate the fruit anyway at the insistence of his wife. He regretted that decision later.

your savior

I was not built for the apocalypse

For days like this

For sinking ships

Angry fists

For lying lips

The Judas kiss

The end of innocence

A broken government

For the swarms of locusts

Your savior sent.

Tribulation. (A poem)

My bones ache with this knowledge

Of things to come

I pray my body does not betray me

Or worse my mind

There will be moments when I will want to give into

My own insanity

And alas, there are no stars in the sky

And yet no rain

The world is ending

And you, you who think you are so mighty

Are so small in all of this

Yes, the world is ending

What possibly could your threats mean to me now?

American voters

The problem with so many American voters is we are loyal to our party to a fault. We are always quick to point out the other parties shortcomings while completely ignoring (and sometimes even justifying) the failures, scandals, and downright evil deeds of our own party.

Agree or disagree?

To mask or not to mask

I personally don’t fight the mask issue. As a small business owner myself I understand doing everything you have to do to stay open. I’ll never give a business a hard time about asking me to wear one.

But I get the people that oppose wearing one. Just don’t be an ass about it.

I also understand this weird psychological effect of seeing everyone around you wearing one. It perpetuates this new world of fear we live in. And fear is probably the best way to control the masses.

Tell me I’m wrong. I’d love to hear it.

I also can’t help think this constant conflicting information about masks being put out and the flip flopping is done on purpose. Just another way to get us to fight each other. Like the mask issue was all part of the simulation….

Thoughts?

Shifting From Fear To Gratitude

My mind can go to a dark place.

Perhaps I will blame it on my programming. I grew up in a very religious household where talk of the devil, Armageddon, and prophecies were every day events. As you can imagine the Covid 19 quarantine brought up a whole lot of old fears.

The quarantine has been quite an interesting journey for me. It started off as an eye roll at all the media hype. It then turned into a fear that people were buying into all the fear and my life would be interrupted. Eventually I became afraid myself if the virus itself. I locked myself and my son in our home for awhile. I came out on the insistence from my sister-in-law my son needs to see his cousins. I remember being very angry as we left that she had given him a kiss on the cheek.

My fear of the virus started to take a turn into something even darker. I’m sure most of us by now have heard the theories of what might really be going on behind the scenes. I’m not going to get into those things here and give them any more power. But I will tell you for a moment it became all consuming. I couldn’t eat, or sleep. I really was full of dread.

A dear friend of mine sent me this video with just a simple note “Please watch.” I am so glad I did because it absolutely shifted how I started thinking and reacting to what was going on.

So if you are looking for a positive, different perspective on not only current events, but how to live your life I highly recommend this video. I will give a disclaimer and say this already went along with some of my core beliefs. Beliefs that were there but were never really applied. Plus I didn’t really understand the Science behind what my gut had always told me, and this video helps explain it.

I hope you’ll take the time to watch it. For me it was life changing.

Dr Bruce Lipton Video

Dr Bruce Lipton is not the only human to have inspired me through this journey of self discovery. But let’s start here as he opened the door for me. A door that leads to hope, empowerment, joy, and heightened consciousness.

If you do watch the video please drop a note as to your thoughts. I’d love to hear them.

Justifying A Belief

An interesting thing about the human brain is it will always look for things to justify a belief or an emotion. If you find yourself instantly rejecting or accepting someone’s words, an article, a youtube video, a scientific paper, ask yourself, “Why exactly am I instantly accepting or rejecting this without much thought or research? Is it simply because it already coincides OR clashes with a current belief or emotion I already have established?”

We will always look for things, people, situations, to back up our belief system. And we will find them no matter what that belief is! If you believe all men are abusive you will keep attracting abusive men into your life and reject those that are not abusive. Your belief must constantly be justified, even if that belief is harmful.

I’m sure you can see it right on social media. It’s the same people posting the same things. Those that are terrified of the virus and believe the shut down is necessary and should be prolonged will keep posting articles about soaring death rates. They must justify their fear. Those that are in disagreement with the shut down will find the the articles that have a completely different perspective on the pandemic. Maybe its the crashing economy, maybe its the fear of vaccines or being chipped, maybe it’s the fear of being taken over by communism.

The Media, ARGH!

Hey, NONE of us know whats really going on. So much news is fake anymore, all the major media outlets are owned by corporations. There is no law against lying on the news. There are no consequences for lies.  There is little integrity among journalists anymore.  Censorship is at an all time high. Everyone seems to have an agenda.

I have my own beliefs about what is happening now and boy have I found plenty of things to back that belief up! Am I right? I think so. I hope not. Maybe I’m wrong. There are certainly plenty of people that disagree with my belief. Sometimes I want to scream at them “wake up? Can’t you see what’s going on? How can you be such a fool?” I’m sure they are thinking the same thoughts about me….

Embrace the not knowing. You will never learn anything new if you only associate yourself with people who agree with you.

What I know we shouldn’t be doing is shaming each other for our beliefs.  What we need to be doing is a lot more listening and understanding. Have compassion and love for our fellow humans even if they disagree with you. What we need to do is admit to ourselves we may not be right, no matter how many scientific papers, doctor youtube videos, news articles we find that back up our belief.

But you can trust Science, right?

As I heard someone once say “You can trust science, but can you trust the scientist?” They can be bought too just like anyone else. And science is constantly evolving and changing and will forever do so. For we will never run out of thing to learn. What we know now may be completely different form what we know 100 years from now. Even things we now accept as fact.

Again embrace not knowing, that just maybe, you might not be right. Remember no one likes a “no it all.” Just listen. Be kind. Keep your heart and mind open.
