“One believes things because one has been conditioned to believe them.” ― Aldous Huxley,
In February of 2019, I posted an article called “Is your thinking your own or someone else’s.” In the post, I wrote that all of us have our ‘truths’, our inherited prejudices, racial and class stereo typing, and all the other polarised crap and paranoia that is handed down to us by our parents, peers, educators, doctors, and law makers, etc. We like to think that we are free thinkers but we have all been moulded to conform, to fit in with society. That’s what education is really all about. It is socially conditioning us, moulding our thoughts and behaviour to obey and conform to the status quo narrative. Our subconscious and conscious minds are continuously being programmed by our external environment, and the incoming information influences and engineers our perception of the world.
Roll up your sleeve
How many people during the plandemic rolled up their sleeves and were injected with an untested, experimental injection because of pressure from someone else’s thinking? And how many will continue to destroy their bodies with big pharma chemicals because they believe their medical ‘professionals’ know what is best for them. Even though mistakes by doctors are the third leading cause of death in this country.
Programming runs our lives especially our faiths, devotions and method of worship.
Man has two sides, a physical body and an energetic counterpart. We are only educated in the physical side of life. Most of us are totally unaware that there is a spiritual reality that is far more intensively alive, and more virile and vibrant than it’s pale projection into physicality.
The jerks that run this planet don’t want us to know of this extra-ordinary world and so they have indoctrinated us with a fear based faerie story. A made up fable that has usurped the innate spiritual reality of billions of people and inhibited their evolution.
Which programme do you run?
We have been generationaly programmed to be god fearing Christians for the last 2,000 years. The Muslims have been programmed for 1,000 years and the Hindu for 3,000 years.
And because these ‘inherited god mind fucks’ are contrary to each other, opposed in creed and dogma, war and slaughter is a given. No thinking needed.
Let the games begin. ‘Me against you and us against them.’
We just have to look at world events to realise that humans are a collective of conflicted automatons, zombies, regurgitating the man made lies they have mistaken for their truth. This false paradigm escalates into mobbing up, and killing anyone that disagrees with them. To understand this state of consciousness we have to examine the root of conflict.
The root of conflict
Our brain is a mechanical process. Out thoughts are a materialistic process. Over the centuries the collective consciousness of human beings has been conditioned to divide itself and continue to divide itself. We have created countries, nationalities, cultures, languages and pseudo sciences. Everything carries a label, and we even label ourselves. We say, I’m British, Russian, Jewish etc. I’m a republican, democrat, fascist, marxist etc. I’m a Catholic, protestant, Muslim etc.
As this self labelling separates one from another, it breeds conflict. We fear what is contrary to our own conditioning, our own faiths, so we choose sides, and are perpetually engaged in conflict with others, agreeing and disagreeing, believing and not believing, and finally destroying.
That is what we are.
Gurdjieffe had this to say about the conditioned mind.
“A considerable percentage of the people we meet on the street are people who are empty inside, that is, they are actually already dead. It is fortunate for us that we do not see and do not know it. If we knew what a number of people are actually dead and what a number of the dead people govern our lives, we should go mad with horror.” Gurdjieffe.
It is obvious from current events that the mass of people on this planet cannot think for self. They are ‘already dead inside’. They are oblivious to the man made stories that have divided them – set them against each other, lies that have taken billions of lives and tortured countless millions. And they are still willing to fight to the death for ‘right is might’ because god is on their side.
We have been living on this planet for hundreds of thousands of years, and yet, in spite of our technological advances, and in spite of our great knowledge, we as a species have not progressed one iota since the primal scream….
We are still acting like violent, stupid brutes, polluting our planet, slaughtering soul imbued animals, gorging on dead flesh and devising hideous ways to profit off, and kill each other.
This dismal state of ‘non thinking’ creates dependency on those in control, and just like the sheep in the field, the majority bows to the sheepdog of authority. Bows and panders, brown noses and sucks up to the wills of crooked politicians, police and state edicts. This is what humanity has become. And this is what Gurdjieffe means by the ‘already dead inside.’
The people who blindly follow their leaders, politicians, and clergy to the point where their programming ultimately becomes who they are – a clone of the matrix hive mind code, and agents of chaos.
Wake up if you have enough space
If we are going to survive as a species, we had better wake up. Get real!
Find the courage to admit we are scheming and devious in the pursuit of our agenda’s and desires.
Find the courage to admit we don’t walk our talk.
Many blab on about spirituality and wanting world peace, ending starvation and homelessness, and these are noble virtues…. but if our inner activity, our thoughts and emotions are conflicted, it follows that the society we create will be also in conflict, nothing will change, and our great humanitarian ideals are nothing more than pissing in the wind. A distraction for a conditioned mind.
We cannot create outward order unless there is inner order. The suffering we bring upon ourselves, and consequently the world, is created by our own mental disorder, our own insanity, and conflict in our own consciousness. In the arrogant, conflicted mind of competition, in the consciousness that needs to control others there is no space for anything else. No space for imaginative thinking, no space for self examination, or for spiritual connection and experience. The mind is too full of I am…I want and I will.
Indwelling by T.E.Brown sums up it perfectly.
If thou could empty all thyself of self like to a shell dishabited – then might He find thee on an ocean shelf And say” This is not dead.” And fill thee with Himself instead.
But thou art so replete with very thou – and have such shrewd activity – That when He comes he’ll say: ‘It is enow unto itself. ‘T’were better let it be. It is so small and full, and has no need of Me.’
Beyond conflict lies the quiet mind. Let us go there together.
Until next time,
