Default Wish you had taken the blue pill?

Not sure when I found project C but I was absorbing everything like a spounge but in recent weeks I feel like I'm in a movie and sometimes I just wish as I was as unaware as the other people... sometimes.

Last Friday at work I got a little too emotional with a close friend I've known for 12 years and got a really sharp e-mail in the evening that he didn't want to know or care!!! Even if it is true!

http://www.arrod.co.uk/essays/matrix.php

Like today I was buying loads of supplies for the coming weeks if it goes pear shaped. water, value beans **** like that... I felt a bit depressed to be honest and want it not to come to that...

Any blue pills left?

Roll on project venus with free energy and total enjoyment in what we do because this is getting me down... can someone feed me some light

At least you only got one sharp email back. Hahaha I had many.
I now feel that the people whom are supposed to know will know.
After the emails, I quickly stopped talking about anything regarding this stuff with those people. If there mind is shut off to it they were not supposed to know. At least that is what I feel.

Default No blue pills!

Blue pills are for sheep. Your sheep days are over apparently. So fasten your seatbelt and start living like a warrior. Accept your fate. Don't see things as blessings and curses, see them as challenges. You can deal with anything, if you don't give up. And you don't give up even if it looks like you can't win. You just do your best and only care about the quality of your actions, not worrying about the outcome.

If you want some uplifting stuff, read this manual http://www.soulwise.net/et-101.htm and watch the second Zeitgeist movie.

Don't worry about the chaos around you. For a new world to be created, the old, corrupted one must die. Let it die...

Default Re: Wish you had taken the blue pill?

I must admit..I too feel that maybe I should have taken the blue pill. I have found myself to be obsessed with finding out more and more true informatio and it has led me to lose track of my life, whether it be an illusion or not. I guess what I am trying to say is that most people have found "happiness" even in this "slavery or control." People have ambitions, hobbies, families and everyday things that make up their lives. When I first came across this kind of information years ago, I told everyone I could and they all looked at me as if I was crazy or even gullible to believe such stories. But now I ask what good has knowing this information done in my life. I want to be happy and not worried. I really wish that I can awaken more people. I have done so with some family and my boyfriend but they all say the same thing "Its just the way it is.we can't change it." I am starting to believe it. I can't even get fellow co-workers to come together and fight for a contract, how will I get people to realize that they are enslaved. I guess I need some guidance because deep down inside I know I cannot go back now and pretend I never knew any of this......but what can we really do, besides blog about it...what are the real physical solutions to be done..where are all the leaders to help lead this cause????? Many questions----anyone have the answers

All.

How do we become effective human beings? It takes the right combination of thinking, including thinking about others and action. And, often enough, the right ways of thinking.

The ability to think, to reflect on ourselves and our behavior and to plan ahead, may be the feature that most defines us as humans, the crowning glory of evolution. But thinking is not an unmitigated blessing.

Sometimes people get stuck in it. People are often consumed with the past, ruminating about events and chewing them over and over. Others get paralyzed thinking about what lies ahead. Both forms of over thinking consume the brain's limited capacity for attention, bring the mind to a halt and compromise mental health. One form is known as depression, the other anxiety. And both conditions are rampant in our culture today.

Intuition can be thought of as almost the polar opposite of either. And it is a reliable way of knowing, and valuable in many circumstances.

There are many ways to define intuition, but all present a kind of conundrum. The act of reflecting on intuition is precisely what intuition isn't. Intuition is really your brain on autopilot, performing its actions of processing information outside of your awareness that it's operating. It's non conscious thinking.

Can you trust intuition? It helps to know that the kind of automatic information processing that underlies intuition is something you probably experience all the time.

Consider that phenomenon known as "highway hypnosis." You drive the car for miles without a conscious thought. You're steering the car, reacting to road conditions and the actions of other cars, so obviously your brain is processing incoming information. You're just not aware of yourself. Or you walk down a street, get lost in thought and find yourself at your destination without awareness of the processes that got you there.

It's often safe to rely on automatic non conscious processes for rote tasks, but what about more complex situations?

Non conscious processes operate all the time in complex decision-making. Often enough, we just don't give them credit. Often we cite rational-sounding criteria for our feelings and actions and do not disclose the subjective preferences of feelings that arise spontaneously.

Sometimes we override our intuitive gut-level reactions altogether, ignoring our native responses in favor of ways we think, for external reasons—such as to coincide with the judgments of others—we should be reacting. Studies have shown that we are capable of making sound judgments about food and, often, people based on nonconscious processes, but if we deliberately think about our preferences and decisions we can actually make them worse. The truth is that all of the factors that influence our reactions just aren't available to our conscious selves.

There is no substitute for gathering information about any task or situation before us. But neither should we be afraid of not knowing every reason why we feel the way we do in every situation. By: Hara Estroff Marano

Great I feel a bit better knowing I'm not the only one feeling like this!
I hasten to add I'm not usually like this but I have been worried about the financial situation about to implode in the world an making sure I'm prepared so I can be safe and therefore in a better position to help others.

I really find my emotions are hyper sensitive at the moment. Just after I sent that note earlier, I was in tears with regards a comment my ex-fiance made about any employer being proud to have me.. And it hit a nerve that I realised I feel completely undervalued at work, almost like it is a complete waste of time. Especially when you know there are free energy devices / engines running on water and you are working in engineering automotive powertrains. I want to feel I'm helping to light the way for others...

I want to help wake people up, but my methods at the moment are clearly not working. I want to use my skills to help people and clearly be more ethical with the job I do. I have been reading through the free energy devices there are many and I'd love to work in that field but it is underground currently probably without funding and everyone I talk to about it smirks.

Are there any ethical / lightworker job agencies or websites? I work for one of these unethical companies which is in the Zeitgiest Movie Talking of light, I feel like a 5W bulb in a black hole

Listening to "Holy Harmony" to cheer me up...

Love and Light

Hey friend know the feeling,
I myself was way down last year after consuming to much about "dark agenda stuff" and the fact that nobody seemed to care about the planet broke me even more down. I found out that to much of this stuff will only eat me up inside and make my life missirable, had to balance out..

After a long shower an some crying in the rain i finally got out the sad dark pitch. You just have to straiten your spine and play along by the prison rules until its time..

I toatly agree with you - somtimes I wish I had taken the blue pill.

In my darker moments, yes. It's easy to get overwhelmed by the magnitude of what's going on. It does make it harder to function in society when you know what's really happening.

I was really depressed about it all a couple of years ago, then I stumbled across an earlier version of this presentation by Ian Lungold. This really lifted me out of the hole; i bought the DVDs and still pull them out occasionally when I'm feeling overrun.

These aren't copyrighted- he decided it was that important to get the message out that freely allowing copying was the only way to do it. It's an antidote to the NWO blues, and reminds me that no matter how bleak things look sometimes from our ground level perspective everything is on course.

I hope they help you guys as much as they helped me.

Blessings

For years now people have been saying that this terrible thing is going to happen and that terrible thing will happen, but it doesn't...

Stay centered and calm. Think beauty and beauty will come.

What is there to go back to?

Living a big life of shallow ignorance?

Roger Waters » It's A Miracle
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAhwySvCOPs



Miraculous you call it babe
You ain't seen nothing yet
They've got Pepsi in the Andes
Mcdonalds in Tibet
Yosemite's been turned into
A golf course for the Japs
The Dead Sea is alive with rap
Between the Tigris and Euphrates
There's a leisure centre now
They've got all kinds of sports
They've got Bermuda shorts
The had sex in Pennsylvania
A Brazilian grew a tree
A doctor in Manhattan
Saved a dying man for free
It's a miracle
Another miracle
By the grace of God Almighty
And pressures of marketplace
The human race has civilized itself
It's a miracle
We've got a warehouse of butter
We've got oceans of wine
We've got famine when we need it
Got a designer crime
We've got Mercedes
We've got Porsche
Ferrari and Rolls Royce
We've got a choice
She said meet me
In the Garden of Gethsemane my dear
The Lord said Peter I can see
Your house from here
An honest man
Finally reaped what he had sown
And farmer in Ohio has just repaid a loan
It's a miracle
Another miracle
By the grace of God Almighty
And pressures of marketplace
The human race has civilized itself
It's a miracle
We cower in our shelters
With our hands over our ears
Lloyd-Webber's awful stuff
Runs for years and years and years
An earthquake hits the theatre
But the operetta lingers
Then the piano lids comes down
And break his FFing fingers
It's a miracle

Like there is something to go back to......

"Wish you had taken the blue pill?" ->
Minor Arcana - Suit of Clouds - 2 of Clouds
Schidzophrenia -> http://www.osho.com/magazine/tarot/T...?All=Yes&Nr=60

Man is split. Schizophrenia is a normal condition of man--at least now. It may not
have been so in the primitive world, but centuries of conditioning, civilization, culture
and religion have made man a crowd--divided, split, contradictory.... But because this split is
against his nature, deep down somewhere hidden the unity still survives. Because the
soul of man is one, all the conditionings at the most destroy the periphery of the man. But
the center remains untouched--that's how man continues to live. But his life has become
a hell. The whole effort of Zen is how to drop this schizophrenia, how to drop this split
personality, how to drop the divided mind of man, how to become
undivided, integrated, centered, crystallized. The way you are, you
cannot say that you are. You don't have a being. You are a
marketplace--many voices. If you want to say 'yes', immediately the
'no' is there. You cannot even utter a simple word 'yes' with totality....
In this way happiness is not possible; unhappiness is a natural
consequence of a split personality.

Osho Dang Dang Doko Dang Chapter 3

Commentary:

The person on this card brings a new twist to the old idea of "getting
stuck between a rock and a hard place"! But we are in precisely this
sort of situation when we get stuck in the indecisive and dualistic
aspect of the mind. Should I let my arms go and fall head-first, or let
my legs go and fall feet-first? Should I go here or there? Should I say
yes or no? And whatever decision we make, we will always wonder if
we should have decided the other way. The only way out of this
dilemma is, unfortunately, to let go of both at once. You can't work
your way out of this one by solving it, making lists of pros and cons,
or in any way working it out with your mind. Better to follow your
heart, if you can find it. If you can't find it, just jump--your heart will
start beating so fast there will be no mistake about where it is!

» Anyone out there who has felt like this in the past and conquered it who can help??

Yes. I've been the black sheep of the family and of the whole society, the weird or crazy guy... like, forever. I am totally at peace with myself now, and even with the chaos around me. I'll try to give some advice. I was too lazy to read the advice of others, so I'm sorry if i repeat something etc. Also, different people, different temperaments, different experience... countless possibilities, which means, not every advice will be suitable for you. Doesn't necessarily mean anyone is more right than others. Just take whatever advice suits you the best at the moment.

In general, what gave me the most, is simply knowledge. The more you understand things, the better you can cope with them. And it's not that much about the illuminati and this conspiracy cr@p - I can very well delve into it because I'm well prepared, but if you just "took the red pill" you have more basic things to worry about. Like finding and balancing yourself. Rather than figuring out banking and political scams you need to figure out what life and universe is about and what your place in it is. When you do that, you'll be well prepared to deal with all the rest.

I imagine it may be difficult for people when they get thrown into all this without a good spiritual background.

I can only give you very small fragments in this short response, so it's more like I'm showing you some guidelines for where to look. Google around and find better explanations for what I'll mention.

Get aquainted with the 4 basic laws of the universe.
- Law of Attraction. Like attracts like. What you do, will come back to you.
- Law of Intent. Things you focus your mind on, will manifest. Your thoughts are much more powerful than this materialist world tells you.
- Law of Allowance. You can't force others. You're only responsible for yourself. You need to "allow" others to follow their path.
- Law of Ballance. Things are supposed to be in balance. If you push for extremes, right or left, you'll have to deal with consequences.

This is very simplified, you'll find webpages that will explain it in detail.

The law of attraction is pretty much what's called karma, it may be useful to learn some basics of buddhism, it should give you a decent explanation of how things work. The eastern traditions usually have a very nice and peaceful way of explaining things.

And again, I recommend to check this beautiful "manual" - http://www.soulwise.net/et-101.htm

I could point you to many things but it would take you years to go through all that and it kinda looks like we don't have tons of free time right now so... I'll take a few of your quotes and see what comes of it.

» I guess what I am trying to say is that most people have found "happiness" even in this "slavery or control." People have ambitions, hobbies, families and everyday things that make up their lives.

That's natural. You don't really need to get rid of it all right now. Sort through your hobbies and ambitions in the light of the new knowledge and see which of them still seem prosperous and which don't. Many of the things you can probably keep. Those that seem useless, well, throw them away and find new ones. If you feel overwhelmed with it, take it easy, step by step, at a pace that feels comfortable to you.

» When I first came across this kind of information years ago, I told everyone I could and they all looked at me as if I was crazy or even gullible to believe such stories.

Most of us have similar experience. It's ok, that's one of the things we just have to deal with. It's pointless trying to awaken people who want to keep sleeping. If you see some signs of them being open to something new, try to tell them a little and see how they react. If it doesn't go well, you can turn it into a joke with a smile and leave it at that. This is where the law of allowance comes in. You just need to let others find the truth on their own. You can share information if they're open to it, but it's no use trying to "convince" anyone.

» I want to be happy and not worried.

Doesn't everyone? Hehe. But believe me, the difference between being happy or worried is only for ourselves to make. It's not the surroundings that determine it, it's our minds. Spiritually evolved people can be happy no matter how hard life is. Blind and shallow people will complain about everything even if they have all the things they could want. Happiness is not somewhere outside. It's the inner balance. It starts with accepting your fate. Meaning accepting outer conditions that you can not change. If something falls on your head, there's no point complaining about it, wishing it didn't happen, or trying to blame someone for it. It just happened and it won't "unhappen." If you don't focus on the complains, wishes and blame, and instead just say "ok, something fell on my head. so what?" you'll realize that it's actually not such a big deal. Often the anger or frustration you build in your head is 90% of your "suffering" and only 10% is the actual event that caused it. Sometimes when I realize it, I have to laugh at myself for being so stupid.

» I really wish that I can awaken more people.

No point. Don't even focus on that cause it will only bring frustration. [OK, before someone attacks me, in some gentle and reasonable way it's ok, but be aware of the consequences. If people aren't ready for it, it won't work so don't expect much.]
Oh and remember that "awakening people" is what Jehova's Witnesses do. I don't suppose you wanna be like them, do you?

» they all say the same thing "Its just the way it is.we can't change it."

And they are very wrong. But let them say what they want. Truth is, we very well CAN change it. Personally you can only change a small piece, and in the face of millions keeping things the way they are it can feel somewhat desperate, but you don't have much of a choice here. It's either going your own way, in different direction than everyone's pushing you, or back to slavery. It has disadvantages, yes. You'll probably often feel alone. Hell, I've been alone all my life, but I'll rather be alone than herded with the sheep. But you can overcome even that if you set your goals and fix your mind on them.

» I can't even get fellow co-workers to come together and fight for a contract

Hehe, don't even get me started on co-workers. That thing is kind of depressing. I watch them every day, being afraid of the bosses, always complaining but never doing anything to change things. Sometimes I tell them what they can do to change things. I really don't care what they think of me so I try, it's challenge and fun. Well, it pretty much never works cause they always have some excuses, hehe. They lack personal responsibility and have fear. Bad combination. But what can I do, I have to let them do what they want to do. They have a free choice, if they wanna be slaves, well... knock yourselves out.

» deep down inside I know I cannot go back now

That's good, that force will drive you in the right direction.


Some more things...

The law of attraction manifests in the shape of habits. The more you're used to doing one thing, the more it keeps you doing that and the harder it is to change it. In hermetism it is explained on elementals. Let's say you fear spiders. That fear creates an elemental in the astral plane, and that elemental becomes a sort of entity, manifesting your fear of spiders. Every time you get scared of a spider, this elemental grows bigger and stronger. It feeds on the emotion. And as it grows stronger, it also influences you back. It clings to you and sort of whispers to your ear, that you really are very afraid of spiders. So you see it's a vicious circle. To kill the elemental, you need to stop feeding it - with the emotion of fear. If you bring yourself to face spiders, and let the fear go away, the elemental loses its food and starts becoming weaker. In the beginning it's difficult to overcome that fear, but with time, as the elemental grows weaker, it gets easier and easier.

So - it doesn't really matter if my explanation is factually accurate, I think it makes the relations easily understandable. The whole point is, if you want to change, to adapt to something new, you have to stop feeding the old habits and build new ones. Starting with thoughts and emotions. For example the more you keep thinking "maybe I should have taken the blue pill" the more you are feeding the "blue pill elemental" and the less you are feeding the "red pill elemental" thus making the transition into the new experience more difficult. Instead say to yourself "this new experience is what I want and I will live it even if it's difficult." You get the idea, you feed the new experience and the old one slowly dies and lets you move on. Make conscious decisions about what you really want, you can even say it out loud, it disperses doubts and doubts are those elementals that hold you back.

I hope it makes sense to you. It could be explained in many other ways, this was just the easiest way for me to put it in words.

Another thing I would advise you is not to see things as blessings and curses, but as challenges. There are some nice buddhist and taoist stories to describe it, I will just say, don't look at things as good or bad. It's tricky, good things may turn bad and vice versa and then it only makes you confused. Look at things as they just "are," and no matter what, you can make some use of them. Let's take this economical collapse. Most people will tell you it's a bad thing. A few will tell you it's a good thing. I will tell you it just IS. You make of it what you want. It has some downsides but it's bound to have some upsides too, just like everything. It is here, take it as a challenge, adapt to the situation, see where it can take you. It may create opportunities for you, that you otherwise wouldn't have.

Habits and routine can be pretty nasty things. They create a stereotype, make you lazy, make you rely on certain things. Then something breaks the stereotype and you're screwed. Suddenly you're panicking and wondering what to do. If you want to be happy, you shouldn't be clinging to routines and be dependent on some things. Make changes for the fun of it, do the same things in a different way every day, try not doing something you do every day once in a while, try to be without things you feel you depend on sometimes. It will make you more aware of yourself and the world, it will introduce new ideas, it will teach you to deal with more and more things, give you a richer experience.

And one last thing for now, don't take things too seriously, don't take yourself too seriously, keep a sense of humour. Yesterday we talked with my brother about the theoretical possibility of a nuclear explosion somewhere close to us. We really had fun talking about it. And it's not because we think it can't happen. It's just that we don't give it that much importance. Death is just throwing away some flesh. Maybe we're crazy but see if we care.

OK, about time to stop here, so much for my plan to not spend the whole night on the forum, hehe. Next time maybe.

If you find my ideas interesting, I recommend reading Carlos Castaneda's book Journey to Ixtlan. If you like it, read the other ones as well. [Ignore the first 2 books, they're mostly about peyotl and miss the point of the teachings]

Maybe what I said won't resonate with you, it's ok. It's just one of many points of view. Take whatever you like. If it gives you only one useful advice, it was worth it.
