It's hard not to notice that we're living in tremendously challenging times. Energies are polarized, tolerance has been all but thrown out the window, and hard truths are oozing out of every crack in our societal veneer. We're being forcefully pushed by those who seek to keep us enslaved and those of us who are sensitive are feeling the effects on a deep level.
I observe seemingly well-meaning people display their colossal ignorance every day. I'm sure you do, too. It can be maddening to watch these folks unwittingly going to bat for the slave-keepers. They think they know, that they have all the information necessary to form an independently thought-out opinion. The problem is that, in order to be exposed to all sides of an issue, one must be willing to put aside preconceived notions, do some investigation, and listen to unfamiliar voices. We have to be open-minded. How many people are truly capable of this anymore? I wonder.
When I met with members of my community a couple of years ago regarding the dangers of smart meters, I found four categories of people—those who already understood the topic, those who were willing to listen to the science and the voices whose conclusions they'd not been aware of prior to our conversation, those whose well-formed opinions stopped them from entertaining a different point of view, and those who didn't seem to care one way or the other.
Unfortunately, the people who couldn't be bothered formed the majority. I was disappointed, but definitely not surprised, to find a few elected officials with previously cemented—though very ill-informed—opinions. It was gratifying to educate some of my neighbors and many offered their sincere thanks. It was equally dissatisfying to have encountered both the ignorance and the willful ignorance.
Now, more than ever, ignorance is playing a crucial role in our world. It alone may end up making the difference between a healthy, thriving future and one of near-extinction (that's not a gross exaggeration).
The unspoken ignorant attitude goes something like this: "I don't know and therefore don't know I should care. I keep my head down, do what I'm told, listen to mainstream media as if they speak the only truth, and go about my life. I have my own little world to be concerned about. I have enough problems without thinking of bigger issues, too! So, leave me to myself. I'm doing okay and expect that if everyone did as I do, the world would certainly survive. It always has."
This is the majority. They rely on distraction as their only method of coping. Look outside, not within, for answers. No effort necessary. Every day feels and appears like all the others. They don't want to think, to be shaken out of their precious delusional reverie. In a way, this is bliss. Ignorant perception contends that all the world is fine, freedom still exists, and unwavering trust is continually granted to those in positions of authority. In fact, there are never any questions, musings, or what-ifs.
Willful ignorance is even more dangerous. These are people who are determined to keep a closed mind to everything that threatens their worldview; or, worse, they know the truth of a matter and continue to act as if they don't, clinging to false notions that have been bought and paid for either in money, other forms of power-boosting, or a paradigm they're not willing to let go of.
Who are the willful ignorant? The pharmacist who knows the drugs he proffers are toxic, ones he wouldn't dispense to himself or to his family, yet he hangs onto his job and career because he refuses to give up his enormous income. Instead of taking his expertise and putting it to use in ways that could truly benefit society, he stays with what he feels is "safe". The politician who reads the independent, peer-reviewed scientific literature regarding the life-threatening poisons in vaccines and the collateral damage they cause, and yet, still votes to remove all religious and medical exemptions from parents attempting to save their children from the proven effects—chronic disease, lifelong neurological impairment, and death.
The willful ignorant are those who claim the sky is yellow, are shown beyond the shadow of a doubt that it is blue, yet cling to their belief that it's yellow, even if they secretly believe it could be blue. They choose to think or act in ignorance (if we can call it that), even when they know better. Once we've been exposed to a fact or a piece of information, we cannot regress to the point of not knowing; we can only act as if we don't know.
We're at a critical moment in our cosmic history—that includes the future of our planet and of humankind. We cannot continue on our current collision course. It's not sustainable. At some point, unless we wake up and realize what's going on and decide to care enough to do something about it, life here will quickly become unrecognizable.
This degradation is already having huge effects on humanity's well-being. Our food supply and water have been hijacked, our air is toxic, our electromagnetic health is being compromised more and more every day, and affordable access to quality medical care is difficult—particularly for chronic illness, which requires working mostly with practitioners who do not participate within the confines of "modern" medicine. I could go on and on with this list, but these are just a few of our human requirements and they've been severely and systematically compromised over decades, centuries, and some might say, millennia. As I like to ask, "What species wittingly destroys their only home and the requirements necessary to sustain life?" I have yet to hear an answer.
What does it take to wake up? First, look around and observe with an open mind. Ask yourself questions. Why are we humans sicker now than ever before? Why are people so polarized in their viewpoints, often unwilling to hear one word that doesn't sound like it came from their own mind? (Worse yet, why are some people becoming verbally abusive and physically violent with those who disagree with their opinions?) Why are we suddenly so afraid that we're allowing freedom of choice to be stripped from us? Why have we become so estranged from one another that some feel more comfortable texting, rather than talking, to a person sitting just five feet away? Why is trust in authority figures at an all-time low? Why is there so much addiction to everything from drugs and alcohol to shopping and screen time? These "why" questions can go on and on ad nauseam. But, we're generally not asking them. Why is that?
If more of us would ask these questions and more, and not stop seeking answers until we're truly satisfied, we could collectively turn this whole disturbing situation around. Ignorance and willful ignorance keep us strangely ensconced in this deadly trajectory. With all the solid information available, there's no excuse for not being adequately informed. Some of the information seems fantastic and some so horrible that most people can't wrap their minds around it. Yet decades of brave researchers have independently uncovered truths we need to hear and understand. Whistleblowers and insiders are coming forward with invaluable facts. We just have to be willing to listen and learn. The world is not what you think it is and the sooner we all begin to "get" that, the better.
Why all the destruction, chaos, turmoil, and personal suffering? Has the world always been like this? Well, yes . . . and no. What humanity is experiencing now is more insidious and ubiquitous. We're being sold a massive bill of goods, supposedly for our benefit, that we're paying for every day with our lives. In other words, we're being fed propaganda regarding things like GMOs, chemtrails, 5G, poisonous vaccine ingredients—and many, many more—as if the deliberate falsehoods are really truths (we have the media and the corporate spin doctors to thank for much of this). The problem is that most of us blindly believe it. The deliberate lies are there to lull us into thinking the way the negative power structure wants us to think. They don't want us to be independent thinkers, just unquestioning followers. The more we fall in line with the rhetoric, the more we become complicit in our own destruction, not recognizing it as pre-designed mass genocide. When people agree to their own demise, it's called suicide.
Become educated. Read, listen, watch, and learn what our history is truly about, not what we've been brainwashed to believe. Yes, think for yourself. Don't just listen to one person discuss a particular topic, listen to many. See where different peoples' stories corroborate each other, run it through your own filters, and see what you come up with. Be inquisitive and have the open-mindedness and courage to seek truth, no matter how difficult it may be to travel that path.
There is a movement happening. More people are questioning, learning, and growing into positions of personal power. If and when you choose to embark on this journey, know that you are not alone. There are many just like you who are refusing to quietly be abused by the very few who want to ruin us. We owe it to ourselves and to each other, particularly the generations to come, to take back our God-given right to personal freedom. Learn to stand in your own truth. Join those who are awakening and don't allow yourself the luxury of ignorance.
