Hey, I thought about how best to respond and decided on a shot from the hip followed by whatever I find is relevant to that train of thought.
It's not so much one group that is in control. There is only the illusion of control and that is where their power becomes real.
There is no "they".
In any family, there are good and bad people according to any rules you set and criteria you acknowledge.
When we step out of our own selves we created, ego, we see a glimpse of something more we already were but could not realize in the physical world.
Further and farther into self-inspection, we begin to drown in the relativity of thought and all notion of meaningful direction is lost.
If we imagine a greater version of the ego that is created by a higher consciousness of thought, we see the possibility that a similar deconstruction
and overcoming of this superego could be possible.
Then there also may be a greater " you" to reveal. But it's not you. It's everything " as you".
If only we knew where or to what "measure" the cycle of created selves ends. We do though. We just choose to focus on the level and state of our
selves we "think" we understand.
We can't imagine that there is thought, coherent thought, from a greater intelligence that we can know and experience. That there is a state of being
we can appreciate in its existence but can NOT understand.
It takes Kenosis, an emptying but not for divine grace. A clarity must be found in the empty void beyond our lives. Our minds only serve our lives.
They do not serve us in traversing this void dividing our many lives, and many "minds".
We would not even want to experience this state in all honesty. There is no place for " us" there.
What's the point? That is the will needed to overcome the void and be something else.
Don't fear "possession". Loss of self. Know that there is no you there.
When we reach something that is no longer even that which remained after the deconstruction of our lives here, we then become a pattern of life.
When this pattern is expressed we reaffirm the reality we are part of.
We are real. Illusions are what we believe. Reality is what we create.
If we dream a devil, there will be a devil. If we dream a heaven, there will be a heaven. And so on.
If we lose sight of that pattern, we still create reality, but it's only the reality we believe. Not the one we know. That's where others come in and
why they try to influence our will.
It's worse if what's keeping you from knowing it is your inability to know things you don't understand.
The more people that believe in this reality correlates to the reality we are all drawn to create. And the cycle is established and instantly
When there were fewer people, less could do more. When more came into existence, the power was spread out beyond the influence of a few.
Thus the need to control the masses arose. That or reduce them. There were too many to convince or even trust with this power.
Who is right? Those that want to express this power or those that created this reality through an expression of this power?
Is their time up? Are we taking turns? Is it the age of the bull or the age of Aquarius? Who decides and makes reality?
Once there was a simple order. A few gods took turns by the zodiacs progression. Then more and more complex systems tried to cope with more and more
Prayers became mountains of opposing thoughts. Paradise was guilty of casting God out of Eden.
Our natural pattern of life is repeating and in harmony with a higher self. One we already are as something else entirely. Not us.
All these lives, these stories. They are cycles we reinforce.
Knowing God is becoming God. The notion seems sinful does it not? Who wants you to think this?
We become God. Not God becomes more like us. Or something of us is elevated to God-ness. No.
We stop being us and become God. A hive mind. A state of mind. A way of being we already are but do not perceive.
That is why we remember. Our pattern is strong. We have our influence on reality intact. Or at least, not as diminished.
