by Zen Gardner
So many are asking, “What can I do? How can I make a difference? How
do I go about helping to effect the changes the world so direly needs?”
I repeatedly say to people to get conscious and you’ll know what to
do. What does that mean? Gain empowering knowledge and information for
one. And if someone’s asking those questions they obviously know just
where to find it. The exponentially growing body of information
available on the internet is an opportunity of the ages. I don’t know if
this happened in the time of Atlantis or not, but how unique an
opportunity can you get?!
Look, read and learn.
Admittedly, growing up in a truly enlightened culture one wouldn’t
have to do all this searching and have so many lies and so much
disinformation to get past. It is time and energy consuming, especially
for young minds.
But it’s our task to learn, and here we are, so let’s do it. And
commit to it. Stop spending any unnecessary time giving the matrix our
attention and energy. It’s bad enough if you have a job you don’t
particularly like, especially if it’s helping to prop up this dying,
But don’t cry about what you can or cannot do and sit in front of the
TV all day, or stay muzzled in your real life when you have an
opportunity to speak up with what you already know.
When the information comes flooding in you will eventually develop a
deep spirituality. The only way this vast Universe can possibly operate
is by forces and powers outside our sensory perception. Call it what you
will and religions have done a great job at trying to keep it in a box,
but SOMETHING is behind all this and is way powerful and wonderful.
One long look at a clear night sky says it all.
Then develop that spirituality. As you venture into the worlds of
esoteric knowledge the dots begin to connect, same as they do while you
investigate what’s really behind the scenes running the show here on
earth as far as manipulated society goes. Then act on it. Meditate if
that’s an avenue that appears to have some validity for greater
consciousness and awareness. Pray if you’re so inclined. Chant, dance,
sing, laugh, cry, scream….but ACT on it!
I remember reading a proverb, “the desire of a lazy man kills him,
because his hands refuse to work”. Hit home? Has for me many times.
Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. But now’s the time to act. And as
your consciousness grows and changes start to take place, the next
step(s) will always make themselves manifest; be it writing a blog and
networking on the net, attending or talking at gatherings, passing out
flyers, hanging posters, talking to people you meet, joining or
organizing demonstrations, starting a youtube channel or blog or radio
show, printing stickers or T-shirts, or just hugging and smiling and
sharing love….or all of the above.
And help those already doing what you know is effective.
I’m sure you’ll think of more. It’s getting started that’s important.
The boat has to be in motion for the rudder to take effect.
It Matters – Every Bit Matters
Insignificance is a matrix illusion. Each of us is infinite potential
and possibility. Each of us IS the Universe. Each of us IS eternal
consciousness. Each of us IS connected to everything…everything. When we
change, everything changes. A perfect illustration of this is the idea
of the Morphic Field I wrote about some time back. [See Change the Morphic Field...Change the World!]
Quantum physics has made this idea a virtually accepted fact. The
inter-connectivity and creative ability of consciousness is profound…and
needs to be implemented in our thinking and way of life. Once we know
how powerful we each are and what a profound effect we each have gets
you off your duff and doing everything you can!
The Tipping Point
This is another empowering bit of information that conveys the power
of change. It came out of a technical University study last year and was
an encouraging discovery for those who were listening. According to
this study, if just 10% of the population wake up (or what they call
“committed opinion holders” have a change) it would turn society
I’ve included the entire article as it’s quite profound:
In this visualization, we see the tipping point where
minority opinion (shown in red) quickly becomes majority opinion. Over
time, the minority opinion grows. Once the minority opinion reached 10
percent of the population, the network quickly changes as the minority
opinion takes over the original majority opinion (shown in green).

Scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have found that when
just 10 percent of the population holds an unshakable belief, their
belief will always be adopted by the majority of the society. The
scientists, who are members of the Social Cognitive Networks Academic
Research Center (SCNARC) at Rensselaer, used computational and
analytical methods to discover the tipping point where a minority belief
becomes the majority opinion. The finding has implications for the
study and influence of societal interactions ranging from the spread of
innovations to the movement of political ideals.
“When the number of committed opinion holders is below 10 percent,
there is no visible progress in the spread of ideas. It would literally
take the amount of time comparable to the age of the universe for this
size group to reach the majority,” said SCNARC Director Boleslaw
Szymanski, the Claire and Roland Schmitt Distinguished Professor at
Rensselaer. “Once that number grows above 10 percent, the idea spreads
As an example, the ongoing events in Tunisia and Egypt appear to
exhibit a similar process, according to Szymanski. “In those countries,
dictators who were in power for decades were suddenly overthrown in just
a few weeks.”
The findings were published in the July 22, 2011, early online
edition of the journal Physical Review E in an article titled “Social
consensus through the influence of committed minorities.”
An important aspect of the finding is that the percent of committed
opinion holders required to shift majority opinion does not change
significantly regardless of the type of network in which the opinion
holders are working. In other words, the percentage of committed opinion
holders required to influence a society remains at approximately 10
percent, regardless of how or where that opinion starts and spreads in
To reach their conclusion, the scientists developed computer models
of various types of social networks. One of the networks had each person
connect to every other person in the network. The second model included
certain individuals who were connected to a large number of people,
making them opinion hubs or leaders. The final model gave every person
in the model roughly the same number of connections. The initial state
of each of the models was a sea of traditional-view holders. Each of
these individuals held a view, but were also, importantly, open minded
to other views.
Once the networks were built, the scientists then “sprinkled” in some
true believers throughout each of the networks. These people were
completely set in their views and unflappable in modifying those
beliefs. As those true believers began to converse with those who held
the traditional belief system, the tides gradually and then very
abruptly began to shift.
“In general, people do not like to have an unpopular opinion and are
always seeking to try locally to come to consensus. We set up this
dynamic in each of our models,” said SCNARC Research Associate and
corresponding paper author Sameet Sreenivasan. To accomplish this, each
of the individuals in the models “talked” to each other about their
opinion. If the listener held the same opinions as the speaker, it
reinforced the listener’s belief. If the opinion was different, the
listener considered it and moved on to talk to another person. If that
person also held this new belief, the listener then adopted that belief.
“As agents of change start to convince more and more people, the
situation begins to change,” Sreenivasan said. “People begin to question
their own views at first and then completely adopt the new view to
spread it even further. If the true believers just influenced their
neighbors, that wouldn’t change anything within the larger system, as we
saw with percentages less than 10.”
The research has broad implications for understanding how opinion
spreads. “There are clearly situations in which it helps to know how to
efficiently spread some opinion or how to suppress a developing
opinion,” said Associate Professor of Physics and co-author of the paper
Gyorgy Korniss. “Some examples might be the need to quickly convince a
town to move before a hurricane or spread new information on the
prevention of disease in a rural village.”
The researchers are now looking for partners within the social
sciences and other fields to compare their computational models to
historical examples. They are also looking to study how the percentage
might change when input into a model where the society is polarized.
Instead of simply holding one traditional view, the society would
instead hold two opposing viewpoints. An example of this polarization
would be Democrat versus Republican. Provided by Rensselaer Polytechnic
The Awakening Point is Here and Now
Interestingly, as mentioned above about feeling insignificant, when
the number of “different opinion holders” is below 10% there’s this
innate sense of futility because the fact is, as they say, it would take
virtually next to forever for the ideas to move against those of the
majority, mathematically speaking.
However, by simply breaking that 10% barrier some dynamic takes
place, a type of critical mass is reached, and it takes on a life of its
A lot of this has to do with the perceived “popularity” of beliefs. Which makes sense. But let’s play along, shall we?
What we do know is people are swayed by these pressures. No doubt.
Now look at this amazing phenomenon:
Pretty encouraging and compelling.
But what’s even more exciting is the parallel consciousness factor as
well as the vibrational change aspect we’re undergoing. While these
study parameters are social pressures and societal mechanisms as they’ve
identified them, in reality we’re talking multi-level and
multi-dimensional influences at play to help effect these vast and
unlimited consciousness changes.
In other words, we’re moving fast towards that tipping point as we
speak!! I can’t give you any numbers or percentages, but it’s happening!
And ironically enough the more TPTB try to suppress it the faster it’s
I mean even the planets, stars and whole Milky Way are lining up as part of this changeover…
Glorious, isn’t it? What more could we ask?
Now get busy. The sooner this thing ignites in a blaze of wondrous
glory the better! And you don’t have to worry about the overall, just
you and your part.
Love always, Zen
