Welcome to The Daily Wrap Up, a concise show dedicated to bringing you the most relevant independent news, as we see it, from the last 24 hours (10/08/18).
As independent media, with every opportunity being taken to denounce, discredit and censor us, it is paramount that we grow beyond the old crumbling paradigm of manufactured false certainty, based on whichever side of the two-party deception one has chosen to align with, and demonstrate to the world what integrity and true journalism is meant to look like. If we allow ourselves to fall victim to the desire to promote an idea as fact, for no other reason than because we believe it to be true based on opinion, or because it progresses what we want to be the truth, then we are no better than those we call fake. Even if that later turns out to be correct, to report a story as fact without first having such facts, is dishonest, and we must be better.
We must see that a change is coming, a change truly free of the juvenile division of two-party politics, and free of all the false revolution psyops put in place under the guise of change, while still pushing for one side of the divide. These outlets, and the movement behind them, seek to hijack this change for their own, and guide you right back to where you began. Day after day, they assert the same hyperbolic the end is nigh hope porn, and it is designed to lull you back to sleep, to steal you away from the real change that is emerging as a true possibility for us all. Pull free from the negative energy, and look to a real revolution; a revolution of the mind. As Caitlin Johnstone wrote:
A radical change in human behavior away from its patterns of oppression, exploitation, war and ecocide will necessarily involve a drastic transformation in humanity’s relationship with thought. I’ve been saying this over and over again in different ways for a long time now, and yet I still get criticisms saying that I have useful insights but I don’t provide any plan of action.
The transformation in human consciousness is the plan of action.
True revolution means abandoning the insane strategy of endless economic expansion in a world made up of finite space and resources, but it also means seeing through the illusory nature of our sense of self and ceasing to believe the babbling mental narratives which are premised upon it. Yes, true revolution means ceasing the worldwide frantic, futile scramble to do what ever it takes in order to get the right kind of numbers in our bank account so we don’t starve to death in an arbitrary economic system based on imaginary bureaucratic fiat, but it also means bringing our unconscious coping mechanisms into consciousness and healing our childhood traumas. Yes, true revolution means organizing and engaging in politics and creating new systems together, but it also means learning to really love the most tender, guarded parts of ourselves which we used to leave unattended running on autopilot in our subconscious mental processes.
I firmly believe that we are capable of such a collective awakening, and there are experts in the field of inner transformation who claim to have observed signs that such an awakening may be underway.
Of this potential for large scale awakening, Eckhart Tolle says the following:
“I see signs that it is already happening. For the first time there is a large scale awakening on our planet. Why now? Because if there is no change in human consciousness now, we will destroy ourselves and perhaps the planet. The insanity of the collective egoic mind, amplified by science and technology, is rapidly taking our species to the brink of disaster. Evolve or die: that is our only choice now. Without considering the Eastern world, my estimate is that at this time about ten percent of people in North America are already awakening. That makes thirty million Americans alone, and in addition to those people in other North American countries, about ten percent of the population of Western European countries are also awakening. This is probably enough of a critical mass to bring about a new earth. So the transformation of consciousness is truly happening even though they won’t be reporting it on tonight’s news. Is it happening fast enough? I am hopeful about humanity’s future, much more so now than when I wrote The Power of Now. In fact that is why I wrote that book. I really wasn’t sure that humanity was going to survive. Now I feel differently. I see many reasons to be hopeful.”
So there are reasons to believe it is possible for us to pull up from our omnicidal, ecocidal, exploitative trajectory and create something new together. We may pass this test yet. But even if I’m wrong about that, what the hell else are we going to do? What better chance do we have, and what more productive way is there to spend one’s time on this earth than coming to a deep and abiding insight into your true nature? From my point of view, the front lines of the revolution are in our own consciousness here and now, not as some intriguing marginal facet of the battle for humanity, but as its source, its heart, and its apex.
Know thyself, oh rebel. Know thyself and save the world.
