Communities, like a flock of birds, are a natural and beautiful part of living and life. Supporting each other, working together, communicating and the sharing of wisdom and knowledge is not only necessary, but one of the great joys in life. Every group, every organization, whether that is a group of friends or a group of associates, volunteers, etc. exists by virtue of the investment of its members. This means that every individual in a community has a role to play, and, as a role, is either contributing, consuming or both. The more casual the group, the easier it for the group to grow as a unit, transform, and change direction. This can happen relatively easily – though not always – in a group of friends or family. However, in larger organizations, change is slow and laborious and so is usually avoided. But its not avoided only because it is slow and laborious. It is avoided because larger and more embedded organizations have taken on, not only a strong egoic identity as a whole, but also strong mandate and contract for the individuals who consider themselves as members. A strong national identity is associated with this kind of organization. Also, a corporation such as Microsoft or Amazon provides a clear direction, goals, and inner character that is expected to be upheld by all its members. Members of communities are expected to follow the community guidelines as a rule. As individuals, most of us are members of various communities, in various roles.
The problem, however, with communities today, is that they have become, not natural formations, but synthetic structures of control. Even communities such as groups of friends and family are affected by this phenomenon. This is because of the overlap of communities and the infiltration of one inside the other. For example, an individual can belong to political party with which his family is not affiliated. , When a political party becomes more associated with the identity of the individual, the ego offers less room for family and friends. Ego is always about role and identity. Egos cannot carry too many roles because it requires a reconciliation of incompatible roles, a process that, to the mind, seems impossible (although this is a lie). More and more, we are seeing stories of families being toward apart simply on the basis of political beliefs, or beliefs in, for example, whether or not vaccines are harmful. These beliefs, that are planted outside the immediate communities of friends and family, are somehow easily being able to tear those more organic groups to pieces.
This phenomenon is rooted in the inability to reconcile difference, as it shows up in our lives. The political party might believe that capitalism is bad, and the individual yet still has desires to open up a photography business. Which view does the individual choose? With which idea does the individual identify? On the surface, it appears that the ideas are not reconcilable, and so the individual most choose which role he wants to play. Choice is not free-will, however, and it is very crucial to notice this. The individual, in this state of two possible choices, is not utilizing his creative energy to actually merge the two together.
So, the individual will choose whichever choice most appeals to him at the time. “Appeals” is a broad term, and encompasses pretty much everything. We can choose things because others expect us to, or we fear losing something if we don’t. We can have all sorts of reasons for the choice, but in the end we also choose what seems to be to our advantage in the context of a particular group. In this case, the group could be the political party, or the family. Family is usually tied up with our identity as a child, and so is associated with our past, ancestral, and immediate. For that reason, we tend to choose the groups that promise something to us in the future, like a future in a political party, or in a point of view that will be advantageous towards getting friends, a mate, and success. There are those interesting individuals who have had parents who have made a point of placing themselves in control of their child’s future. In those cases, the individual will generally choose family.
But these choices, as they prevent themselves, are just choices. We aren’t, when we experience life as an array of choices, engaging in our natural ability to create the life we want. Choice is of course more comfortable. Having limited options means you don’t have to exert too much effort in making a choice. The greater the array of choices, the more difficult it does become, however, especially when you are not in any awareness of what your soul really wants to create. The world today spends most of its time in choices and options, not in creation. When we are spending time in choices or options, you will find that there are groups or organizations behind those choices and options, meaning that they are not yours and they never will be. Groups always provide options and choices. This is great for a while, but choices and options are like the spaces in between the prison bars. Sure, you get to see outside pretty well, but you can’t really go anywhere outside the boundary of the group, without free falling into the void of free-will. This why Rousseau said that man is born free, but is everywhere in chains.
To be creative in the world is to let go of the choices and options, and create your own. Many creative people reach a point where they truly exhausted in trying to find a “group” that works for them. People such as artists, entrepreneurs, healers, teachers – all sorts of people who want to go a different path – fear that creative path because it won’t immediately guarantee to provide the success that the organizations may offer in return for their hard work. Contracts are attractive because they promise something. Creativity doesn’t have a contract. It only expresses itself. The choice between choice (or contract) and creation often seems to be the choice between a certainty and uncertainty, and wealth and poverty. Fortunately, this dichotomy is an illusion of the highest order – designed precisely to keep you controlled, and inside the boundaries of surveillance and manipulation. There is no choice between choice and creation. There are choices, and then we go beyond choices – where the choices are actually created.
Creation is the source of all things, communities, parties, families, choices. Our world is something we create, but we cannot do that if we are living in reality structures and constructs that are not ours to begin with, and that are designed to actually keep us in low-grade fear, similar to the fear of a child. The inner-child movement seeks to reconnect us to that inner child for healing. This is exactly the opposite of what we should be doing. The inner child actually needs to be merged into who we are now – the child needs to grow up, not be coddled and attended to. That is just an imagination, that creates more division within the psyche of the individual. The creativity and joy of a child is not the same as the creativity and joy of an adult. A child is meant to be limited by the choices of the parents, for his safety and education. The adult doesn’t have to be. Plato said that the Greeks are like children. But when Plato said “Greeks” he generally meant all of civilization. The manipulation of our energies has had us become increasingly infantilized, which is evidenced by the preponderance of victim mentalities and a general experience of being insubstantial, powerless, and uncurious about the scary world outside of us and within us.
So groups provide something like a romper room, or a place to make us feel more comfortable. They give us a role and a job, and so a sense of identity. There are people who are thirty years old, living out identities that were structured when they were fourteen. Some undergo modest adjustments over time, but they are kept inside the same circle of influence, the same recurring role in the play. Most of us do not know what it is like to actually experience the fresh air of creativity, because we are only using a very small percentage of it. The rest of our energy is being utilized to fuel the energetic structures designed to keep us trapped inside our playpens. Plato wrote about this over two thousand years ago, in his Cave Allegory. Things haven’t changed much. In fact, the deception and the nature of the prison planet has grown more and more powerful. Yet, the good news is that, as the deception has grown into ridiculous proportions, so have those of us who can see through it and help others to see through it. There is always the light at the end of the tunnel. The hardest part is letting go of the toys and the playthings that have kept us distracted from the powerful being that we are.
Some people might say, well, how can I escape this kind of thing? The world can seem like a tangled mess, with all sorts of manipulations threaded through apparently benign groups and organizations. Some might look to a leader to save them, or some kind of organization to rid the planet of all the nonsense once and for all. This cannot happen. To want to be saved is to a child hoping mom will get rid of the monster under the bed. What needs to happen is the awareness needs to emerge that the monster doesn’t exist and so there is no need to be saved. What must happen is that each one of us must choose to clear ourselves of the illusion. The illusion is just an illusion – the synthetic realities most of us live in, feel limited by, and – strangely enough – defend, are the things that we must let go of. A great deal of what we are hanging onto are the projections of group dynamics, commonly called peer-pressure or group-think. Everyone knows what group think is. Most seem to avoid detecting it in their own lives. There is a deep seated fear of being left out, of being alone, have being free and of being in the presence of your own free will. That terror, of being alone is the very thing that is used to keep the sheep in check. The projection of the scary wolves is just a reinforcement of that fear. But if you face the fear itself, you’ll see that everything you have been running from has always been yourself.
When you are in the presence of your creative power – solutions appear and many problems cease to exist. Problems are simply a result of the systems, and when they are the result of systems of control, the false realities we live in, they dissolve along with those false realities. So if you believe there is a race problem because of the structure of reality that emphasizes that, you will think it is a real problem, and you will try to fix it or help fix it. The problem however will not go away, because the structure wants there to always be a problem. The solutions will become increasingly painful as time goes on, if the system proliferates unchecked. But if the system reaches saturation and releases itself and deletes its processes, it will cease to exist and so will the problem. Magically, racial problems will be no more. The solutions to problems in all systems, programmatic or otherwise, is a reprogramming of the system, or a the displacement of that system with something else. You can never fix a bug in any system by removing the effects of that bug. You need to change internal processes. That requires creativity and the ability to stand outside the system. Who is willing to stand outside the system that generates issues concerning race?
This is why we have to be very cautious when the world announces that there are problems that must be addressed, especially when the propaganda is immense, and a great deal of money is invested in keeping the problem around. Books, philosophies, educational courses, medical treatments, the manipulation of society – there are all sorts of agendas that profit from the false illusion of problems that wouldn’t otherwise exist. Often, these sorts of systemic problems are sourced in small incidents that could easily be resolved on the local level. But there is no profit in low level problems. There is only profit in large scale problems like wars, pandemics and global racism. In all of these, solutions will always lead to more and more problems. It is different kind of war, this information war. The casualties are not bodies, but billions of souls who were born free, and reduced to slavery.
In all these problems, the rising of consciousness is never introduced as a solution, and that is because there is an interest in keeping the world in a state of retroactive unconsciousness. It keeps us in a state of believing that we are trapped in a past action, for which we must pay the consequences in both the present and the future. Today, much of the world is living in a world where they are paying for the consequences of things that have happened in the past. Many are willing to call this a life worth living. I am not willing to call it that, and that is why I choose a life that is not fortified by or nourished by the identities those structures are offering. Every day, I discover something new and strange about the programmatic multidimensional systems we are living in, and every day, it gets easier and easier to simply remove them from my eyes wide open.
