Entertained to Death
December 2, 2013"I have never found a companion
that was so companionable as solitude."
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden
"Amassing details about the Illuminati or corruption isn't going to save us. We can foil the Satanists by having a moment-to-moment relationship with God. They hate that. Nothing would infuriate them more than a massive worldwide religious revival."
by Henry Makow Ph.D.
We are becoming more "externalized" than ever. What does that mean?
We seek satisfaction, knowledge and meaning outside ourselves, i.e. our souls. We depend on "ego strokes" the world gives us for our happiness. Facebook has turned us into "likes" addicts. If we write on someone's wall and they don't notice, we are miffed. If someone doesn't want us to be "linked in", we are despondent.
We are like squealing chicks waiting for benefactors to bring us juicy worms in the form of money, sex or recognition. This sense that our happiness comes from outside is the source of all addictions.
OUR BIGGEST MISTAKE
The biggest mistake is assuming others know better than we. The truth, in Thoreau words, is that "all anyone knows is the wind that blows." The human race is pretty clueless as to where it came from, why it is here and where it is going. Satanists control education and the mass media and their first priority is denying the existence of God, and our spiritual connection to Him.
We are born alone, tread a solitary path, and meet our maker alone, yet we spend our lives evading God, our only constant Companion. This Self evasion is experienced as emptiness and loneliness. Looking for diversion or guidance from outside is looking into a "wilderness of mirrors." (T.S. Eliot) When we watch a movie or even listen to music, we are stuck in the mindset of the "creative artist." How many are in a spiritual place where we want to be?
Entertainment rarely inspires, uplifts or nurtures the spirit. Human companionship often leaves us feeling dissatisfied and empty.
I once saw this graffiti: "If you hate being alone, other people must find you boring too."
We would never be lonely if we realize God is our constant companion by virtue of our soul.
The Illuminati Satanists have made "God" a dirty word. They closed our minds to God but He cannot be evaded. He is Reality: Truth, Goodness, Justice, Love, Beauty, things we all crave because they are inherent in our spiritual nature.
Imagine our soul is the light emanating from a slide projector. The slides are our thoughts. These slides are provided by entertainment and the mass media. We see a thought-slide of a steak, we salivate. See a sexy person and "we" feel lust. We see a stock going up and "we" feel another kind of lust- greed.
The Illuminati is adept at providing an endless supply of these diversions. We are bombarded with images of nubile young women selling everything. The Illuminati are constantly pushing sex in our face, a form of spiritual control. Our friends are usually controlled by the same thought-slides and demand conformity from us.
Our real identity is not the mind or its thought-slides. It is the light. By keeping our minds still (blank), or thinking positive or even pious thoughts, we can experience the light which we really seek- immanent truth, beauty, goodness, and love.
"Muddied water, let stand, becomes clear," said Lao Tzu.
Cambridge Platonist poet Henry More (1614-1687) wrote:
"When the inordinate desire after knowledge of things was allayed in me, and I aspired after nothing but purity and simplicity of mind, there shone in me daily a greater assurance than ever I could have expected, even of those things which before I had the greatest desire to know."
("My soul is a candle that burned away the veil; only the glorious duties of light I now have." St John of the Cross.)
Amassing details about the Illuminati or world corruption isn't going to save us. We can foil the Satanists by having a moment-to-moment relationship with God. They hate that. Nothing would infuriate them more than a massive, worldwide religious revival. This is the only thing that will stop the NWO.
God is not an abstraction or something to be found in books. He is our soul. The light from the projector. The life-force. We need only locate Him in our being and defer to Him in our words and deeds. This is the essence of all true religions. Islam, for example, means "Obey."
Gradually, our identity shifts from the thought-slides to the light, and we distance our self from our animal behavior.
This is the purpose of life. Self-perfection. By becoming the light. By shining the light. En-light-enment. I expect Jesus literally shone. He referred to himself and his disciples as the "light of the world." The light is life and the path of human development. Worldly desire is the path of death and destruction.
This quest is the dedicated life. I haven't been able to achieve this but at least I have a goal. My religion is my day and I am not impressed with how I currently spend it.
"It is something to carve a statue...but it is far more glorious to carve ...the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. Every man is tasked to make his life, even in its details worthy of the contemplation of his most elevated and critical hour."
By making our thoughts conform to our soul, instead of the world, we create our own heaven. All great religions teach us to control our thoughts. Our minds are altars and our thoughts are offerings to God.
"Muddied water, let stand, becomes clear," said Lao Tzu.
In the Hindu tradition, mind discipline is called "Raja Yoga." By learning to meditate, we learn to have constructive thoughts. The key is to treat your thoughts as though they were a stranger's, and edit them. If you master this skill of detachment, you will never be depressed, never go mad for the simple reason that
you will not be identified with a negative mental complex. - See more at: http://www.savethemales.ca/surviving_the_new_world_order.html#sthash.uOc6wRBI.dpuf
For those who dismiss this as "New Age" I conclude with excerpts from Book One, Chapter 20 of "The Imitation of Christ" by Thomas a Kempis. I don't advocate the life of a Monk, as he does. But there is some truth we can take away.

The Love of Solitude and Silence
Very many great saints avoided the company of men
wherever possible and chose
to serve God in retirement.
"As often as I have been among men," said one writer, "I have returned less a man."
We often find this to be
true when we take
part in long conversations. It is easier to be silent altogether
than not to speak too
much. To stay at home is easier than to be sufficiently on guard
who aims to live the inner and spiritual life must go apart,
with Jesus, from the
crowd.---JOHN V. 13. ...
Leave vanity to the vain. Set yourself to the things which God
has commanded you to do.
Close the door upon yourself and call to you Jesus, your
Beloved. Remain with Him in your
cell, for nowhere else will you find such peace. If you had not
left it, and had not
listened to idle gossip, you would have remained in greater
peace. But since you love,
sometimes, to hear news, it is only right that you should suffer
sorrow of heart from it.
(Thanks to Tony B for sending Thomas a Kempis)
