We Are Entering An Era Of Shattered Illusions

DEUS NEXUS: My comments below.

broken-mirrorThe structure of history is held together by two essential and distinct kinds of links, two moments in time to which no one is immune: moments of epiphany, and moments of catastrophe. Sometimes, both elements intermingle at the birth of a singular epoch. Men often awaken to understanding in the midst of great crisis; and, invariably, great crises can erupt when men awaken. These are the moments when social gravity vanishes, when the kinetic glue of normalcy melts away, and we begin to see the true foundations of our world, if a foundation exists at all.

Catastrophe occurs when too many people refuse to accept that around us always are two universes at work. There is the cold, hard reality that underlies everything. And on the surface is a veil of deceit and compromise. The more humanity compromises vital truths in order to enjoy the comfort of illusions, the more mind-shattering it will be when those illusions fall away. These two worlds can coexist only for short periods of time, and they will always and eventually collide. There is no other possible outcome.

I think it could be said that the more polarized our realities become, the more explosive and disastrous the reaction will be when the separation is removed. I feel it absolutely necessary to relate this danger because today humanity is living so historically far from the bedrock of reality, political reality, social reality and economic reality that the stage has been set for a kind of full spectrum destabilization that has never been seen before.

Though my analysis tends to lean toward the economic side of things, I am not only speaking of shattered illusions in the financial realm. In my next article, one last time I plan to go over nearly every mainstream economic statistic used today to misdirect the public (from national debt to unemployment to inflation to retail sales and corporate profits) and expose why they are false while giving you the real numbers. Most of my regular readers are familiar with much of this information, but I think it important to consolidate it all in a single article so that we can take stock of where our society sits fiscally as we enter 2015. For now, though, I want to discuss the core problem of self-deception, the problem that makes all the rest of our problems possible.

When the initial phase of the global collapse was triggered in 2007 and 2008, there was a substantial explosion in interest and education in terms of liberty issues and alternative economic awareness. I remember back in 2006 when I had just begun writing for the movement that the ratio of people on any given Web forum or in any given public discussion was vastly opposed to alternative viewpoints and information — at least 50-1 by my observations. We were at the height of the real estate frenzy; everyone was buying houses with money they didn’t have and borrowing on their mortgages to purchase stuff they didn’t need. Life was good. The shock of the credit crisis came quickly and abruptly for most people, and there has been a considerable shift in the kinds of discussions many are willing to entertain about our future. Yet the idea that such things can happen despite a consensus of social and geopolitical health does not seemed to have soaked into the thick skulls of average people.

Time, unfortunately, has a magical ability to erase vigilance. It’s not that the public has necessarily forgotten that danger can strike anytime anywhere (though some of them have). Many of them know full well that our culture is floating on a paper-thin ship in a turbulent sea. However, the disturbing trend today reveals that people have decided they do not care. “Taking the blue pill” is the rising rally cry from the so-called “new normal.” Yes, the economy is an illusion, the political system is an illusion and the various global conflicts our society participates in are mostly illusions. But we “can’t do anything about it,” so we might as well profit from these illusions while we can, right?

It has been said that during the economic collapse of the 1930s that the Great Depression was a depression only for the 30 percent of people that had lost everything. For the employed and the financially secure, the depression was much like any other time. This is the point at which we stand today in the collective mindset. With nearly a third of the U.S. population kicked off the unemployment rolls and approximately half the country dependent on a government check of some kind for their survival, the current depression is only now beginning to feel like a depression for anyone. The soup lines have received a fresh candy coating of EBT cards and welfare payments, but the illusion is finally fading, and this should be of great concern to us all in 2015.

Even more frightening is our culture’s deluded sense of what a collapse actually looks like. For many, collapse is a cinematic and overnight affair, with zombies, nuclear bombs and mass panic. In real life, and throughout history, collapse is a process. Since at least 2008, the U.S. and the rest of the world have been experiencing that process. Everyone is waiting for equities to implode and for social unrest to erupt before they take the threat seriously, but these are not signals of collapse. These are the things that occur when a collapse has run its course. Collapse never occurs overnight. It takes years for the effects of social and fiscal breakdown to be visibly felt. And when they are felt, many people refuse to notice. Eighty years ago, America was halfway through the Great Depression, and mainstream economists were STILL claiming that recovery was right around the corner. Illusion and self-deception can be so powerful that the worst miseries can be normalized, at least for a little while.

And it isn’t only the general public that is stricken with crippling bias. There are those within the liberty movement who have bought into false paradigms for various reasons, and this threatens any progress we have made over the past several years. There are those who still think that the “conflict” between Eastern and Western politicians and banking elites is somehow real. There are those who believe that Russia and China, despite their numerous and undeniable ties to the global banking syndicate (information I have covered in multiple articles over the years), are the “good guys”, while Western nations are the “bad guys”, rather than them all being mere subsidiaries and franchises of the same monstrous globalist machine.

They hold onto this illusion, I think, because it is much more frightening to accept the reality that we are alone, that the liberty movement is the first and last line of defense against centralization, that the responsibility for the future of independence and individual freedom rests on our shoulders. It is much easier to fantasize that there are others out there, nations and governments with armies and capital, that are on our side and will fight our battles for us. This illusion will be a painful one for many in the movement as they begin to realize that the East is actually working in tandem with international financiers instead of working against them.

There are also those in the liberty movement who cling to the notion that the fight against globalism will be won without physical conflict. They believe that if we simply protest long enough, play the political and legal game long enough, nullify long enough, refuse to participate long enough, that the elitist edifice, an edifice which has existed for centuries and has manipulated historical precedence for just as long, will suddenly disappear in a puff of fairy dust.

The first problem with this strategy is that it relies on the assumption of time. Sure, anything is possible given ample opportunity. Perhaps the movement could grind away at the New World Order over the course of several decades until the majority of the masses are awake and aware (which is exactly how long it would take). However, I think it infinitely foolish to presume that we have decades to accomplish such a task. If the past has shown us anything, it is that tyranny does not respect reason and, at a certain point, couldn’t care less about image. Tyranny respects only power. It does not respect the protestations of ants it can crush under foot, but it will make a wide path around a rattlesnake ready to strike. While there is utility in the pursuit of intellectual and philosophical combat, if you are not willing to be the rattlesnake as well, then you are not going to affect change against such an opponent. You will eventually be stepped on.

The refusal to accept responsibility for one’s own defense is yet another product of fear — fear that the enemy is too powerful, that all resistance is futile. But resistance is only assured failure if resistance is never undertaken. Sheeple defeat themselves within their own minds before they ever stand up, and so they never stand. This is the only reason totalitarian elements ever achieve success. Again, many in the liberty movement are going to face a rude awakening when they realize they have relied too much on the notion of the system policing itself, instead of preparing for the worst-case scenario.

And finally, the globalists themselves suffer from a veritable fog of illusions to which I can speak only briefly.

We are stepping over the threshold of an age that will shatter the illusions of everyone, and the internationalists are no exception. The root pillar of elitist globalism itself is that some men are born to rule, while other men are born to serve. Some men are born kings, and other men are born slaves. The psychopathy of this belief system should be evident, but psychopathy also elicits blinding ego and hubris, which smothers any inherent questions of motive. I do not think the elites ever actually consider the validity of their own philosophies. I am relatively certain their manner of viewing the world is much like that of a cult, a religious sect driven by the brutality of zealotry rather than the empowering nature of understanding.

Such men cannot be reasoned with. In fact, zealots often revel in their ability to trample all other world views as they grasp for complete dominance of their ideology. The illusion of rightness is far more important to them than actual truth, and this is their greatest weakness. Hidden under all the posturing and power grabbing, deep in the recesses of their own assumed omnipotence, I sense an ever present terror within the globalist culture. I sense a brand of terror that comes only from the seed of doubt.

The incredible array of propaganda leveled at the public, the constant war gaming and mind gaming against the citizenry, the endless hailstorm of legal maneuvering designed to erase our sense of connection with our natural rights and liberties, the tidal wave of fearmongering, and all the manipulations and scapegoats and elaborate theatrical displays, all reek of fear.

For if the globalists were truly as omnipotent as they pretend to be — if they really were all-knowing philosopher kings born to rule — then they would already have their New World Order. They would not need lies. They would not need the threat of force. The undeniable power of their ideology would be enough if their ideology actually had any validity. Lies are designed to hide lack of validity and lack of strength. The globalists are, at bottom, a hollow shell desperately clamoring for substance.

What may appear to be the “thoroughness” of the elitist con is actually a form of micro-management that exhibits a fundamental doubt of success. The globalists wish they could predict the future, but they cannot. So they are just as afraid as most of humanity. I believe we are entering an era in which they will feel the stark pain of shattered illusions and the destruction of their own fantasies, no less felt than the pain of the rest of the world.

Our mission as an opposing force to globalism is to come to terms with our own illusions and to erase them, to stop compromising and to stop waiting for the final shoe to drop and to take positive action now rather than after the endgame develops. This means preparation and organization for the worst-case scenarios. This means making one’s family, neighborhood and community as self-reliant and secure as possible. The excuses have to stop. The distractions and intellectualized silver bullet solutions have to stop. Hard work and risk are all that are left, all that matters. If we do this, and if we do this now, then victory is possible. In any contest of strength and will, he who knows himself best, he who sheds all illusion, will be the winner.

deusnexus_100Brandon Smith has touched upon great truth, yet he ignores or avoids a spiritual understanding of this worldly drama. As we enter this new age, more light is pouring into our world, exposing and overturning the self-destructive ego games that have kept us  imprisoned. What he seems to be describing, is the eve of a global, spiritual transformation.

The Ra Material, “The Law of One,”refers to this as the transition from third density to forth density Earth. It might otherwise be called the Event, an uneasy rebirth, the Ascension process, the cusp of a Golden Age, entering the Age of Aquarius, or the final judgment before the return of Christ (Consciousness).

The word Apocalypse, means ‘un-covering’, translated literally from Greek, is a disclosure of knowledge, i.e., a lifting of the veil or revelation, In a religious context, it is usually a disclosure of something hidden.  In modern language, an apocalypse is often used to describe an event of global destruction, but the true intent of the word may in fact describe a global psychological undoing, where the illusions of the Matrix are suddenly and dramatically exposed, and the bubble of self-deception is finally burst.

Whether this ‘undoing’ happens in 2015, or gets postponed to 2016 or 2017, it is in all likelihood inevitable. It may continue as a slow-motion process.  It may accelerate gradually, but at some point there will be a defining moment when the sleeping world can no longer hide from the truth, when the forces that have operated in the darkness are exposed, when all the secrets of Earth’s historical bondage suddenly pour out into the light of day. And the world will never be the same.

This is why it is so important for people to prepare themselves, to clear out their own shadows and  fears from their heart and mind.  Our fears of this ‘undoing’ will likely be much greater than the reality we experience.  How we fare throughout this process may largely depend upon our state of mind and how well we have prepared ourselves. See: The Conflicting Message of “Let It Go”

Whether we experience a financial collapse or a financial reset, so much of our modern sleeping world is built upon sand, a psychologically immature foundation of consumerism, materialism, denial, and fragile ego-identificaiton, that the slightest global shift could cause deeply traumatic reverberations throughout society.

Yet it is also a period for selfless heroes, helpers, and teachers to stand up and shine their light. There may in fact be a great polarity split between the selfless and the self-serving, where the selfless bloom in love and glory while the self-serving wither under the weight of their own fear.

I disagree with Mr. Smith about the need for violent revolution. Violence is never an answer, though self-defense is often necessary. Violence is the response the darkness wants and needs to survive, and it will only lead to more Order out of Chaos.  See: “Snowpiercer” and the Illuminati Matrix.  See also: The Danger of Becoming the Darkness When Fighting the Dark Side

This is a global cleansing process, and the Earth needs to purge all of the darkness that has suffocated us for centuries before we can move fully into the light of a Golden Age. Simply arresting and locking up a cabal of bad guys will not be sufficient. All that is toxic must rise to the surface to be exposed to the antiseptic light of day. It will all have to be confronted, processed, understood, forgiven, and released.  This process will not happen overnight, nor will it be painless.  This is a psychological and spiritual process akin to the “Dark Night of the Soul.” – DN

The ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ occurs when your life appears to hit rock bottom.  You may experience a plethora of ‘bad breaks’ in your personal life, financially, mentally and/or physically.

What typically happens during the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ is that we get so pounded by all of these experiences that we end up reflecting on “Why did this happen to me?”

At first, you may feel hatred towards those who contributed to your ‘Dark Night of the Soul’.  You might question the Creator and feel as though your spirit guides and guardian angels have failed you.  This couldn’t be further from the truth.

Eventually, you realize that you needed to experience everything that you went through in order to grow spiritually.

In time, you will end up surrendering yourself and your ego to whatever the Universe has in store for you as if it is all now in the “Creator’s hands”.  This is where the cleansing begins.

An excerpt from Earth Awakens, by Sal Rachele

The Economics of Duality

As we have stated previously, your economic system is not only out of balance with the energies of the ascending Earth, but its principles are almost diametrically opposed to the paradigms of the New Earth. The new fourth density human beings are concerned for the welfare of all citizens. The opposite of this is having a small, elite group who live high on the hog while everyone else lives under control and manipulation (read slavery).

The belief in the “haves” and “have-nots” stems from identifying with the material world and forgetting your spiritual nature. As materialistic souls witness the laws of entropy that rule the lower worlds, they become fearful that they, too, will wither and die, becoming powerless in the face of nature. Therefore, out of this deep sense of powerlessness, they erect all sorts of fanciful structures in order to have some sense of control.

The egos of the dark ones sincerely believe they are the “chosen people” and deserve special status. Their attitudes toward others may vary from having pity and a false sense of compassion toward the downtrodden, to feelings of outright disgust and disdain for the “lower class.”

Understanding the illusions suffered by the so-called elite will help you, the Lightworkers, have true love and compassion for these deluded souls.

“4th density love is a bridge from 3rd density to 5th density love, because it has rules from them both; substituting truth for lies while still keeping the possibility of making prideful choices that lead to pain and suffering.  4th density love will be a big improvement in the overall quality of life for all, but there is a reason for the saying ‘the truth hurts’; get ready to experience waves of painful revelations about yourself and the world you live in, they’re coming and will crash down upon both the great and the small.”

QUESTION: Dear Kryon, is it ever appropriate for a Human to resort to violence?

ANSWER: Yes, when you’re attacked with life-threatening force, it’s appropriate to respond with violence if necessary. In addition, it’s acceptable to meet violence with violence when protecting your children or family.

There are times when you must meet force with force, for this is the only thing that force understands. Let me give you an example: If you’re awakened in the middle of the night and you find an assailant standing over your child’s bed, about to destroy the life of your child, I guarantee that you’ll use force to stop it. This is instinct, and it doesn’t mean that you’re violating spiritual guidelines. The term “turn the other cheek” refers to a situation where you’ll give ultimate patience within an exchange where anger might have otherwise been a Human reaction. It has never meant “stand and be harmed.”  (source)
