Through Awareness and Calm Resistance
Good essay. I found the last paragraph the most intriguing:
"We can help other people who are still stuck in chronic defensive nervous system states to wake up, and come back to a calm place. This cannot be achieved simply by argumentation with facts and logic, because this just feeds the defensiveness, so must be done by appealing to the right brain hemisphere via re-connection to love and common humanity, through metaphor, comedy, poetry, music, awe and beauty."
Gary, your words reflect my thoughts and beliefs with so much clarity!!! Thank you!
Good thoughts here, Gary.
However, as you've recently become aware, I cannot agree with your statement:
"It is not that I believe that people in these authorities are purposefully lying or out to harm us"
This may be true of some or most of our naive officials in our governments, but to ignore the clear evidence of what Klaus Schwab called 'penetrated cabinets' is to continue endangering ourselves to institutional torturers (and for the record, Jessie Czebotar, one of Schwab's survivor-victims, puts him very close to the top of the Cult pecking order). There is an occult agenda at work in our world, and these occult adepts infiltrate governments and institutions in order to undertake their dark agendas. This involves the extensive use of deliberate, planned lying and harm (trauma/torture) to effect their mind control objectives. So while I do agree that institutions have that same overarching fight-flight-freeze response, to ignore or downplay the deliberate insidious element is dangerous.
Their cloak of invisibility is almost complete; they do not resemble abnormal people in any way, shape or form until we, as individuals, encounter them in life and undergo the excruciating task of peeling back the layers of programming to help them escape their mental prisons. Sadly, some of them do not want to escape, and those who do, do so at an extreme cost.
I've just answered to another of your posts. Like that time, we see a different world. I have been aware of the institutionalized mind-numbing since 2005 or so, at least. One of my earliest online pieces was on one of the mind-numbings-dumbings - the intrained belief that all opinions are equal, which is anti-factual and anti-logical. I also see much more that there has been - and is - intent in what is happening. Maybe if we talked we could see there was more closeness in our perspectives than I get from my reading of your piece.
This is great Gary, thank you. Trying to connect in a different way was why i started writing poetry. The problem was that for so long I was writing the anger that was in my system, which came across as quite confrontational, which is never going to work. Im working on a more understanding approach so as not loose people before they've even listened.
My wife was laid off several years ago from her job (she had worked for the university for 13 years) as the assistant director of a business school. The stories she tells about the way things were run is dad and sad, it’s exactly how you describe it here. She was a part of all those halls and mirrors and had no real voice in how the system operated. Academia in America is a disgusting crock that ought to be carefully looked at - much farther than student loan cancellations- but I digress....
Wonderful article, you’re a very talented and astute writer.
Great article, thank you
I'm sending this out in my (neurodevelopment) newsletter tomorrow. Brilliant. Thank you!
