The ancient mystery teachings are all over the place and would change the world overnight if everyone just looked into in.


welp... Adam Weishaupt was into this no nonage philosophy of enlightenment as well. I forgot where I read that but when I did I realized the Illuminati has been getting slandered by those who oppose nature / natural law

The church told us to wait for Christ, something to do with control and money I imagine.

Christ told us the kingdom of heaven is within us. Nothing to wait for if God dwells within.





true, but what does that mean?


Everything you need is within you. You are as strong as you believe you are.

I think if people sat down and really analysed their motivations and thought processes, I.e mindfulness we would see a profound change in their actions as they gain understanding and realize the harm their unconscious, ingrained(and lazy) patterns have on themselves and others.

Its all to easy and convenient to think in prearranged, compartmental stereotypes (like memes for the mind), a common example being "where there's smoke there's fire".
This can be quite dangerous because as soon as this "wisdom" is presented any alternatives are disregarded as the 'smoke' informs the mind that there is indeed 'fire', conveniently negating the need for further thought. I'm sure many innocent people have been condemned in this (and other similar) manner.

I must have read a different OP than the one you think you wrote...

Don't follow leaders don't follow institutions. That far we can agree.

Am I reading your OP wrong or are you rejecting the Messianic Christ and labeling it as a tool to take personal power away from you? Because that's what it sounds like.

Great OP either way, I totally agree with your take here.

no I'm actually not arguing the validity of any religion or religious figure that has no relation to what man has chosen to do with whatever the truth is

welp, we are currently in a paradigm of duality where up is down and down is up, right is wrong and wrong is right

it's very hard for us to grasp reality there's no real discussions about the nature of reality and what it means within our society, there is philosophy courses in college but if it's like the rest of the academic programs it's very green and doesn't really dig deep enough into the topics for a truly scholarly understanding

which is what university should be

Who is us? Who's reality?

What makes you think your struggles are the same as other people's?

Victimhood you say, do you mean movements like mgtow?


And preppers. You know, those people who shun society, live off the grid, stockpile food and weapons, and shoot first, ask questions later.

Preppers... Yep, people with defined ways of thinking, who choose to live a certain way and don't force their way of thinking on others, are exactly the same as social justice warriors and other 'victimised' groups.

Many years ago when I first was told about mindfulness, it resonated with me in such a way that I actually felt as if a door had opened, that I'd never even known was there. All the reasons why I stressed over things, were more about creating reality where none existed, but as the mind is a great story teller, the body believes it, and as a result, all the stress and anxiety over things that had not even happened, was disabling me.

Mindfulness gave me the ability to sit in the moment and know that there are no brick walls in my path, only opportunities. If I met each one with optimism instead of fear, there is no bad result, only deviations in my way forward. Opportunities are always a good thing. And that feelings are not thoughts. CBT never did it for me, but the ability to create space for my thoughts, gave me room to breathe.

I thought, "Why don't they teach this in schools? I mean, it can't hurt, and it would stop a lot of people effectively 'banging into walls' in life?" and still to this day I think mindfulness is something missing from so many peoples lives.

But, in the subsequent years that followed, life got in the way, and I found myself in a place worse than ever. And no amount of mindfulness can alleviate some things. Sometimes the fire that engulfs us within, can only be left to burn itself out. And that is such a tiring and horrible thing. But, as they say, the phoenix rose from the ashes.

I have a trail of pain and misery behind me so vast, it bleeds into my future, but only embers remain now. And focused breathing techniques allow me to slowly practice mindfulness again. It is, after all, something you must practice in order to benefit from. Like lifting a weight, you cannot press 250kg the first time you try. You have to build up to it. And if you stop, you lose the ability...

I think that's why a lot of people who hear of mindfulness, consider it just hippy woo woo. They are not prepared to work on it, develop it, and see the benefits. Try a mindfulness meditation session once, get bored, can't sit with their thoughts, and forget about it. If we taught people from an early age the potential benefits of how to think better, it would, in my opinion, only be positive for so many.

Well, you mentioned mgtow as some sort of victimised group, that I know you were just poking at.

But they are no different to a group of people who opt to avoid society, openly state so, and live their lives separate from the rest of society. So I thought, just comparing the two, many of whom are here from both camps, may give you something to think about.

We don't go about dehumanising them just because we don't believe as they do. We make tv shows about them.

I see, thanks for the explanation.

Yes you're right, I was poking the op with stick, mostly because he always plays the victim in literally everything he does ( at least with his posting in this site) and I found it interesting he would post this topic as it is the opposite to his normal philosophy, well at least from my perspective.

Very interesting post, thanks for creating it.
From my point of view, the best is to undo any kind of need of a leader in certain aspects and not in all. But the ability to question and cut through is essential if one is to break away from the manipulated life. For one to cut through, one has to even cut through one's own leadership. reply to: toysforadults

I think the idea of leadership is a monkey mind kind of state that only exist in a lower frequency kind of primal state

in a more enlightened society I think the idea we employee behind leadership wouldn't be necessary if people would come into their own power and follow natural law

but yeah in a way in the real world we live in it means becoming a leader or being willing to stand on your own self realized principles

We need leaders because we have been conditioned to need leaders. Most of the masses believe that our leaders are somehow more intelligent and capable of leadership.

The reality is the majority of leadership tends to be narcissistic sociopaths or even psycopaths. Without the abilty to empathize with those who are not like them they are actually the least qualified to lead.

But their narcissistic sociopathic tendencies cause them to seek leadership and power over others. They may have intellect but lack the ability to think. They live for what's best now and can not see what might be tomorrow. Which thankfully always leads to their downfall.

In my experience, isn't it that lack of personal power, or confidence that the causes the need for a rise in power or the totem pole?

Like what Jeremy Irons Alfed said in BvS...Gods throwing thunder bolts, innocents dying, good men turn cruel due to their helplessness.

That the funny thing about power I guess, everyone wants it, but not the consequences that ensues, unless it the price they want to pay. It all balancing act of benevolence and tyranny, where the benevolent are said to die before they wake up, and see, one must be crazy if they are humble.
