What is happening to the individual in our time

“At ground level, Earth Civilization is turning into an all-encompassing protection racket. The absolute need for protection is being peddled by our august leaders and experts…and of course they say the only way to accomplish safety is through collectivism. ‘We’re all in the same nest, and job number one is guarding it. This job takes precedence over any other activity.’ The watchword is sacrifice. Give up your future for the sake of the Whole. Be proud you are choosing to become a politically correct social construct that eagerly responds to instruction about the needs of the group. Wear your collectivist badge with honor and pride. Re-create yourself as a member of The Group.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
This isn’t a minor investigation.
It goes to the heart of what an individual is.
The perception that the individual is small and cannot overcome the expanding System of Control—that conclusion is only a piece of the story.
We are also talking about the individual’s defection away from his own power. He chooses to defect.
As a substitute for his own resources, he might well adopt a mystical belief in so-called collective consciousness as the only source of power.
In the West, the early Roman Church sold this mystical Unity with great effect. The deception continues to this day. It is reborn in various forms, most notably as “the universe”—the idea that the universe is making benevolent decisions for all of us, and we can tune into these guidelines and thus achieve greater life.
Then we give up true individuality, consider it a lost cause and a delusion based on sheer ego.
This is premier, prime-cut, class-A mind control.
We’re talking about theater here. The individual’s reinvention of himself in the role of advocate for the “greater good.”
Of course, if the individual has little to no awareness of his own imagination and creative power, he doesn’t realize he is fleshing out this role. He doesn’t realize he is engaged in something theatrical.
He certainly doesn’t realize he is taking part in the protection racket called Planet Earth. He fails to see how the vague notion of “greater good” is being manipulated by leaders in the pretense of a crusade called Justice.
Consciousness wants to create new consciousness, and it can. Imagination is how it does it. If there were some ultimate state of consciousness, imagination would always be able to play another card and take it further.
In any arena of life, and especially when it comes to mind, perception, power, empathy, and so on, there is always a status quo. It’s merely the place where a person says, “Well, that’s enough. I’ll settle for what I have. I’ll stop here.”
Sooner or later, this leads to boredom, frustration, problems, and conflict. It leads to a decline.
Imagination, which knows no bounds, is the source for the most adventurous explorations. It can have great impact on the material world, of course, but one mustn’t therefore conclude it is composed of matter or energy. Imagination is non-material. To think otherwise winds you up in using some version of physics to depict imagination—and then you are imposing limits on it. This is an error. Imagination doesn’t obey any laws of physics.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, we’ve flattered reality enough. It doesn’t need any more. Imagination creates new realities.
You can create the same thing over and over, and eventually you’ll be about as alive as a table. Inject imagination into the mix, and everything suddenly changes. You can steer that boat anywhere you want to.
The lowest common denominator of consensus implies an absence of imagination. Everyone agrees; everyone is bored; everyone is obedient. On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are massive floods of unique individual creation, and then that sought-after thing called abundance is as natural as the sun rising in the morning.
Sitting around in a cosmic bus station waiting for reality is what reality is. Everything else is imagination.
There are those who believe life is a museum. You walk through the rooms, find one painting, stroll into it and take up permanent residence. But the museum is endless. If you were a painter, you’d never decide to live inside one of your canvases forever. You’d keep on painting.
The relentless and obsessive search for all those things on which we can agree is a confession of bankruptcy.
When we re-learn to live through and by imagination, we enter and invent new space and time.
With imagination, one can solve a problem. More importantly, one can skip ahead of the problem and render it null and void.
Imagination isn’t a system. It might invent systems, but it is non-material. It’s a capacity. It feels no compulsion to imitate reality. It makes realities. Its scope is limited only by a person’s imagining of how far imagination can go.
The human race is obsessed by the question: what exists? It appears to be a far easier question than: what do you want to create? This comparison explains why civilizations decline.
Imagination is a path. Walking on that path long enough, you find answers to all the questions you’ve ever asked, as an incidental side effect of the journey. You also find power that most people only dream of.
Leaders of society may try to make society into a madhouse, but the individual has a radically different destiny, if he chooses it.
