This article is not about whether the earth is flat, round or something else, but about the rabid dogmatism, intolerance and religiosity that has apparently taken hold with the more staunch adherents to this new perspective and to put it in a clearer context.
Flat earth or whatever theory that somehow brings unnecessary contention and division is an indicator of something we’re seeing throughout the information field, and such lower level forcing of assertions have been a source of infection in many arenas for generations – some obvious and some not so obvious, but the symptoms are the same.
Because something is perhaps true or not true does not make any of us an unquestionable source of anything. We’re here to each wake up individually, and no form of forced persuasion, threats or bludgeoning will change our minds.
That’s the beauty of the human spirit and our eternal consciousness.
How Do We Fall Into These Traps?The following might help explain a lot of things to a lot of people. The overarching question of how segments of humanity can fall for lies and deceit of any type is an intriguing one. More importantly, how can agendas be carried out by so many lemming like sycophants of the clearly illuminist empire to the obvious degradation of humankind?
The answer may surprise you.
I’m not trying to imply this latest flat earth investigation is wrong, as it’s important information that needs processing and a wonderful world of discovery. The point is so many play into mechanisms they may not be fully aware of.
Behold the Predator – “They Gave Us Their Mind”They, those outside our playing field, work through the mind. What we think are rational processes are not always what they seem. Minds can be tricked, and very easily, contrary to what your self-reinforcing mind might tell you. That’s why it’s important to not play in their arena; they’re smarter than us on a certain level, a level we don’t belong in and should shirk.
And it all has to do with the mind.
This quotation from Don Juan Matus alludes to this aspect of which we all should be well aware:
“We have a predator that came from the depths of the cosmos and took over the rule of our lives. Human beings are its prisoners. The predator is our lord and master.
It has rendered us docile, helpless. If we want to protest, it suppresses our protest. If we want to act independently, it demands that we don’t do so… Indeed we are held prisoner!
They took us over because we are food to them, and they squeeze us mercilessly because we are their sustenance.
Sorcerers believe the predators have given us our systems of beliefs, our ideas of good and evil: our social mores. They are the ones who set up our dreams of success or failure. They have given us covetousness, greed, and cowardice.
In order to keep us obedient and meek and weak, the predators engaged a stupendous maneuver—stupendous, of course, from the point of view of a fighting strategist; a horrendous maneuver from the point of view of those who suffer it. They gave us their mind.
The predators’ mind is baroque, contradictory, morose, filled with fear of being discovered any minute now.
Sorcerers of ancient Mexico reasoned that man must have been a complete being at one point, with stupendous insights, feats of awareness that are mythological legends nowadays. And then, everything seems to disappear, and we have now a sedated man.
What I am saying is that what we have against us is not a simple predator. It is very smart, and organized. It follows a methodical system to render us useless.
Man, the magical being that he is destined to be, is no longer magical. He’s an average piece of meat…”
–don Juan Matus in Castaneda’s “Active Side of Infinity” [Emphasis mine]
How Do We Differentiate?This is the human dilemma. We’re born into these physical body-minds with an immediate challenge. We are not greeted from the outset as being spiritual or super sentient and innately awakened beings as we should. Instead we are neglected, abandoned and ultimately abused. And so begins the treadmill of denial, fighting to gain acceptance, and a life of involuntary co-dependence and servitude.
Quite the heavy concept for most to wrap their minds around but this is our reality.
Finding out the fundamental truths that are so contrary to what we’ve been taught is a rough road. It’s never, or rarely, met by others with compassion and understanding, but rather ridicule and belittlement. Hence so many are shying away from reality.
No matter. It will meet them halfway anyway. Eventually.
Symptoms of the Archontic MindsetWhether you subscribe to the Juan Matus or Gnostic understanding of our reality or not, the fundamental teachings remain – from the Dao de Ching through Zen Buddhism and the like and even eclectic western philosophy as well as psychology reflect this same underlying nature of reality, that the mind is more often the tool of illusory ego fabrication and lower dimensional reinforcement of extremely hindering psychic mechanisms than a helpful friend.
The right brain, left brain picture tells the tale in another fashion.
Once aware of profound spiritual forces active in our universe with which we interact, things take on other dimensions and require deeper levels of awareness to truly get the big picture. It’s up to each of us to discover these experientially, not just intellectually, which hails to the crux of the matter we’re addressing here.
If you apply this archontic understanding to our mental nature and often untoward inclination to justify everything via non-conscious, pre-programmed reason, a lot makes sense.
Enter the Flat Earth Contra-versy – Example of a Digital Inquisition?This has to be addressed. Not just because I have been attacked personally for not conforming to what certain individuals in this movement seem to require in order for anyone to be considered a valid source of information, but to help people understand the symptoms and origins of this type of rigid insistence that causes such uncalled for conflict and division.
Who needs a government psyop when we can individually yield to the archontic mindset? After all, who is our real enemy? Let that bake your noodle.
To attack alternative websites for not wanting to take on some belief system, real or unreal, is so counter-intuitive to the awakening process it is staggering. So many very intelligent and well “informed” people going combative for a particular mindset that seems to be a catch-all solution is actually disturbing to me. I admit, I am fascinated by the flat earth information and know we’ve been lied to on every front and love learning new information and challenging realizations.
But don’t give me ultimatums.
Aren’t I and others allowed to wonder and process? What’s with the idiotic insistence and condition setting? Who do these proponents think they are?
Do others with very strong beliefs and personally experienced based systems insist everyone get on board and publish their stuff or you’re a shill worried about your income or you can go to hell? Yes – mainstream religions working within the divide and conquer construct. Are those not “on board” with some proposed new understanding being lumped into the same false paradigm?
That’s simple evidence of what I am trying to discreetly expound on here – without ultimatums and name calling but with distinct disdain. I mean, c’mon.
You who are unwittingly pushing this warfare are your own psyop from the sounds of it.
Snap out of it. Even the logic doesn’t make sense, never mind the exclusive spirit of the overall thrust.
Fundamentalism Revives and Hardening of the ArteriesWhat it boils down to in my understanding is a falling for this archontic “yahwey or the highway” mentality. It divides, puts others down, creates discord, disharmony and confused aggravation.
That’s how it works.
When one researches the Flat Earth thoroughly, as I have, and imbibe the information as well as the reaction to it, one very profound realization arises.
And this could very well be the crux of our problem.
The iconic-archontic savior concept. While I do know there is a wonderful creative force we’re all part of, this so clearly plays into the mind control matrix paradigm. And this is what we need to remain aware of as well as transcend.
Flat earth fundamentalists manifest, confirm, reinforce and greatly magnify the God-Creator factor and contend that this one realization of the flat earth truth will single-handedly bring down the matrix. Interestingly enough, I’m not against the theory in it’s most esoteric form and love solutions of all sorts. Creation and our particular place in a magnificent creative universe and our wonderfully particular place makes a lot of sense in many ways.
But this can also be seen through the lens of the holographic universe understanding of our situation without all this godhead stuff that’s being implicated. There are many interpretations that shouldn’t be excluded. Point being, the easily adopted creator concept could be a set up for the unwary to be cleverly hijacked by the archontic influences of hierarchy, patriarchy and domination.
Take it for what you will, but let’s stay open and conscious here.
Warning BellsSerious warning bells went off when I found this factor over and over from the very staunch and more belligerent proponents of this issue that are now giving this false choice, in or out type options with all the incumbent ultimatums. What gives? Is there no room for debate, time to digest and present the information for people to decide for themselves? Not a very winsome approach if you ask me.
What’s with this “weighing in” precipitation process? Where the hell does that come from?
Flat, round or pear shaped as one confused physicist said, we all exist here together with very real challenges. That the flat earth realisation will solve any and every problem is tantamount to following a religious belief for salvation, salvationism being the ultimate control tool of the archontic mindset.
If you make it a religion you’ve lost your argument, real or not real. And the attachment to it is nothing less than the archontic/illusory mind once again seeking to take control.
Separate truth from this fundamentalist thrust and you might get some traction. This confrontational tack is way wrong and contrary to any and all consciously awakened methodologies that have brought us this far.
ConclusionDespite these unnecessary yet revealing skirmishes, the march to loving truth goes on. When forces attempt to disrupt this powerful yet somewhat sensitive process it bothers me.
Overall, I have to admit it disturbs me how people cannot grasp the importance of actively participating in the awakening, but skirmishes like this don’t help one bit.
There are so many easily available vectors to just walk into, worlds of empowering and enlightening information and encouragement. Why not let people discover naturally and synchronistically what is theirs for the taking? Haven’t we had enough stuff shoved down our throats?
Seek and Find“You Are the Awakening”. It’s nowhere else. It’s in you, it’s in me. We cannot change the external world unless we ourselves are changed.
Let it happen. Discern the pressure lobbies, whatever truth they may bear. We’re here to freely learn.
Lose you mind. Find your heart. And don’t forget to dump the infected rubbish after gleaning the truth.
Love always, Zen
