Be careful that your ideal of "love, live and be happy" doesnt lead you down the path of "ignorance, sleep, and blindness". There have been lots of "negative" postings as of late because there is a lot of negativity and people here are waking up to the fact that we have the responsibility to present truth...no matter how unpleasent the truth may be.


what can a dying, miserable person do? even an ignorant "happy" person can help by just being happy.............do you eat McDonalds or real food? you choose your input but not necessarily your output....

to the OP:
I just realized, after reading through many posts, that you're talking about taking the drug away from the addicts. this site didn't exist before 09/11/01 which was a mass trauma wherein many people couldn't stop watching the news and became addicted to the sense of power that comes from being 'a part of what's going on' instead of the more realistic complete lack of any power. the oil spill is feeding that addiction.

If you think about it, we might be focusing on the right thing.

What we're expected to do is watch American Idol and Sex and the City.

Thank you guys - you both said it so well!

As we have discussed and must make a point of, there is no point simply ignoring everything negative. I try to learn, understand, help (if possible) and grow.

Learn about the problem and the issues surrounding it. Understand each side of the story and how it is having an effect. Help by either direct or indirect means. Grow by using the lessons presented from the event and use them to spread the light.

Even something as horrible as the oil spill. Seeing those poor beautiful animals drowning in sludge breaks everybodies hearts, but instead of dwelling, i used that as an opportunity to give love to my pets, the plants in my garden, my family and friends. It made me appreciate what i can do in my little life to make others lives better.

A silver lining to every dark cloud.

Dwelling is what we must try and stop doing

Agreed, some of us are doing exactly what 'they' want. But instead of giving us the peace love and happiness spill, how bout I give you a short lesson in life.

Peace love and happiness are ok for a few, but not for all. If you are at peace, filled with love and happy with everything, then something's about to crash down on your beautiful little life and bring you back to reality.

From the moment you first draw breath, life is about pain. You can either succumb to it or learn to balance it with joy. If every one were all about the peace, love and happiness, it'd be a damn dull world.

I've always admired you people. It takes alot to be able to look out at the world and think it's still nice and shiny when there are so many things, sometimes LITERALLY, slapping you in the face to show you otherwise.

Everyone's life-perspective is different. I like challenges. I like change. I like debate. I like obstacles to overcome. I'm quite content in the negativity. As long as there is negativity, there are people like me out trying to set it right. Without the constant battle of trying to create the peace love and happiness world that you live in, I would be nothing, empty, and devoid of purpose.

I doubt 'They' want us fighting for other people's happiness. What "they' want is for some champion to stand up on a forum and shout that everyone's falling in with the evil plan from 'they', accusing, ordering, and demanding, then being largely forgotten in a few weeks.

I'm not trying to hammer you down, but you gotta consider the balance of things. If everything were perfect, there would be mass suicides. We are all different, we all have differing opinions, lifestyles, personalities, wants, desires, pet peaves, etc... The differences make up our world. What is negative for you may not be negative for others. Think the BP spill is bad? Think of all of those chemical engineers, steelworkers, specialists, and just plain old everyday Joes that are making a lot of money off Evil Corporation right now. Sure, fish are gonna die, but that was the risk we took by letting them drill there in the first place.

Every failure in the world is your fault. Your responsibility. Because you weren't actively trying to keep it from happening and probably aren't trying to contain the effects, personally. If you aren't involved on the issue one way or the other, where have you got a right to say something's negative, positive, or anything else.

THAT is what THEY want. You to not focus on your own failures. THey want you to believe that you weren't responsible. That the Government or Evil Corporation are at fault so you can hold yourself blameless. THEY are at fault... they have to clean up the mess and you're content to shout from your soapbox while doing basically nothing.

Boards like ATS thrive on negativity because they challenge the mind. Wether you're talking about the LHC, black holes, genetics, 2012, natural disasters, HAARP, UFO's, it's all about positivity. You're pretty positive you don't want to die a horrible death and want to talk about these issues at length to either be prepped to handle them or to understand them on a higher level. That goes for Israel, weapons, Illuminati, you pick the poison.

It isn't negativity. It's your perspective.

I agree that we need to be aware of the events, but I myself have found that I can get so wrapped up in them that they consume me, and then I'm no good for anyone. I think those who have their "heads in the sand" (as ET MAN so appropriately put it), who don't realize what is going on around them, definitely aren't promoting a positive change. But those of us who ARE awake, needn't focus all our time and *energy* on negativity. It is our duty (if you will) to acknowledge it, and then focus on the good that we WANT to see. WE create our reality.

Oh, and just for the record, my stance is that those who are "pre-destined" to awaken and see through the Matrix... WILL. And those who don't are simply not supposed to this time around. We will each have our chance.

I understand your viewpoint, and most of it I agree with. I will say, though, the time for Ego is coming to an end. In the very near future, all that comes with Ego will disappear, and there will be no need for debate or challenges. I see a world of peace, love, compassion and generosity as a beautiful, peaceful, exciting place! I look forward to it! There is enough suffering on our Earth for 1000 lifetimes. I'm ready for a little bliss, aren't you?

I think the doubters, skeptics, deniers, prove it folks are simply mad because they cannot disprove the truth of what is truly happening.

OP---good job


www.thetruthseeker.co.uk...

We will use our knowledge of science and technology in subtle ways so they will never see what is happening.

We will use soft metals, aging accelerators and sedatives in food and water, also in the air.

They will be blanketed by poisons everywhere they turn.

The poisons will be hidden in everything that surrounds them, in what they drink, eat, breathe and wear.

We will create medicine that will make them sicker and cause other diseases for which we will create yet more medicine.

We will render them docile and weak before us by our power.

Their minds will belong to us and they will do as we say. If they refuse we shall find ways to implement mind-altering technology into their lives.

We will use fear as our weapon.

We will establish their governments and establish opposites within.
We will own both sides.

They will perform the labour for us and we shall prosper from their toil.

Our families will never mix with theirs.

Our blood must be pure always, for it is the way.

We will make them kill each other when it suits us.

We will keep them separated from the oneness by dogma and religion.

We will control all aspects of their lives and tell them what to think and how.

We will guide them kindly and gently letting them think they are guiding themselves.

We will foment animosity between them through our factions.
When a light shall shine among them, we shall extinguish it by ridicule, or death, whichever suits us best.

We will make them rip each other's hearts apart and kill their own children.

They will bathe in their own blood and kill their neighbours for as long as we see fit.

We will benefit greatly from this, for they will not see us, for they cannot see us.

We will continue to prosper from their wars and their deaths.

We will make them live in fear and anger.

We will use all their tools we have to accomplish this.

The tools will be provided by their labour.

We will make them hate themselves and their neighbours.

We will always hide the divine truth from them, that we are all one.

This they must never know!

Drop-by-drop; drop-by-drop we will advance our goal.

We will take over their land, resources and wealth to exercise total control over them.

We will deceive them into accepting laws that will steal the little freedom they will have.

We will establish a money system that will imprison them forever, keeping them and their children in debt.

When they shall ban together, we shall accuse them of crimes and present a different story to the world for we shall own all the media.

When they shall rise up against us we will crush them like insects, for they are less than that.

Negative, i'm not ready for bliss. As for throwing Ego around (with a capital E) makes me curious. I'm assuming this Ego is from some philosopher and judging by the way you use it, I can safely assume it's not Freud or Nietzsche.

How is Ego wrapped up in this? Without Ego, we are just shells. Ego is our identity, self-perception, and the part of us that controls our own lives. If you want to give THAT up, you have me completely stumped as to the point of your original post.

I fail to understand the intentions of the OP and a large percentage of the posters herein .

This is a CONSPIRACY website . Most ALL conspiracies evolve from a negative viewpoint or action(s).

If you all don't wish to witness negativity , why are you all members of a conspiracy-oriented website ?

How can you have any pudding , if you can't eat your meat ?

I don't think the OP was saying "Ignore everything". He was stating that being negative is the wrong response. Generally, I agree with him. Being negative won't solve the problems either.

The real problem here is Ego, just like he said. We as people need to understand that we do not have the right to tell others how to live and think. Unless they are causing actually demonstrable harm then we need to just let them be.

The oil spill stinks, but what is sitting around crying going to do about it? If you are so distressed by it then you need to get up, stop whining and take some real positive action.

Drop the fear and live your life.

[edit on 9-6-2010 by antonia]



I agree that Ego is the root of the problem. But I have a couple problems with your post.

We may not be able to have the right to tell people how to live, what to say, etc.. But we do, and should, have the right to question authority and generally challenge what we percieve as "pervasive negativity" whether it be through questionable business practices, political corruption, bad political leadership, etc.. And it is EVERYWHERE these days! It should and will be challenged by people on ATS.. Mainly, I think, just so we might understand the truth for ourselves and be knowledgeable about things people generally aren't. Someone has to ask the tough questions regardless of whether or not others want to hear it. The status quo isn't necessarily innocent in nature.

IMO, you are right in that noone has the right to tell others how to live their lives. Only it's a catch 22 situation in alot of ways. For example, political views of a certain type mean that you believe the government and the country should be run a certain way.. This basically translates to you think people should live their lives a certain way. In alot of ways this is a kind of passive judgementalism which is why alot of people just hate politics altogether.

But it is the tough issues in politics that people are the most passionate about. In alot of ways both sides see each other as negative when that isn't necessarily the case and then nothing constructive gets done. It makes you wonder how much that happens in ordinary daily life.

You can't live your life without fear either.

In alot of ways, you have to expect the worst from people or be blindsided by the unexpected. And it is always more difficult when you are impacted by negativity of other people whether it be emotionally, personally, by current events, or whatever. People will always try to take advantage of other people whether it be monetarily, emotionally or politically without you even knowing about it. Also, just because people take advantage of you doesn't necessarily man they want something in return. Sometimes they want nothing at all (and that's the point). Alot of the tougher issues we discuss on ATS deal are wide in scope but very small sofar as public awareness. I think we should talk about everything whether it be positive OR negative. Our lives are directly impacted by both.

Ladies and gentlemen, read the above quoted post. Read it and burn it into your brains. This is what being an American is all about.

If the tyrants wish to build an empire on your backs, stand up and slide them off. You may have to fight to get to your feet, but you have to at least try.

Outstanding post.


Yeah, i know i am raining on the parade of the OP here. Sorry. It is a good message, and i cannot say i disagree with it. We DO create our own reality, even in a non-metaphysical sense. Enough people think and act in a likeminded fashion, we can see just how this happens.

I take refuge in Call of Duty, and Sasha (my dog). I have other dogs, but she is my sidekick. The internet just fills in gaps in my day, like right now as i am about to fall asleep.

"New Age Sheeple do not set out to actively and physically fix problems. They follow the Positivist view, which is to ignore bad things and hope they go away, or make them go away “with their minds”. No, I am not joking. Every New Ager I have ever met holds stubbornly to the belief that if they think happy thoughts and wish hard enough, their invisible “mental energy” will change their surroundings for them. “If only everyone was blindly optimistic about everything,” they think to themselves, “our society would be perfect…” I hate to break it to them, but no amount of ‘happy vibes’ will stop an inflationary dollar implosion, or stop people who have deliberately chosen to ignore their consciences from doing terrible things."

It's a matter of perspective as to whether these news items are "negative" or not. If exposing corruption and finding truth is "negative" to you, I don't even know what to say. Maybe YOU'RE perceiving it like that. Not everyone does. I am relieved. It's wonderful to see this! I see people learning to discern truth from brainwashing. That's good.

One who attends to their garden with Love and positivity is just as much a influence on the vibration of the planet as one who physically aids someone in need. An entity who radiates Love by simply being is as just as much of an effect as one does so externally.

The power of being is so beautiful and due to the effects of the veil in place many believe that this is not so.

What is the veil?

- It's a wall in between the conscious and subconscious mind. ie, it separates the male heavy principle of existence, from the female heavy principle of existence.
- Through this, it reduces the effect of the oneness of the creation and the subconscious realization of this, and enables the creation of efficacious separation.

You need not know anything of the world and it's problems and yet can still aid by simply being happy.

When one believes themselves to be powerless than so they will be; but when one realizes their true identity and their indefinite connection, that has never dissipated, they can begin to penetrate this "veil".

What silences the conscious mind?

Sleeping is meditating unconsciously, Meditation is sleeping consciously.

Be the change you want to see in the world, the world is a reflection of yourself.

Man... Ego is not the problem, a lack of Ego is.

If you want peace, love, and happiness, if you want ANYTHING in this world, there is only one thing you have to do to get it:

Own Your Mind.

If you own your own mind and are capable of critical thinking, are at least semi-aware of your surroundings and have taken a long hard look at yourself in relation to the world, then you're set. Lies are lies and can be seen for that. You can find truth anywhere, answer any question, obtain any goal.

There is nothing wrong with Ego. It isn't good or bad, it just is. We can shape our Ego consciously, but most never think about it.

And thanks for whoever posted that Covenant thing, I had a good laugh.

Wrong! We are focused on things that matter for a change instead of Bigfoot, crystal skulls, Stargates, Nibiru. This site used to be all about that stuff and the establishment loved it because it was harmless and useless and nonthreatening.

But now we talk about serious topics and REAL truth and we are exposing the evils daily. It isn't about being negative it about escaping thier version of reality. No one watches mainstream media anymore it is dieing and because it was their principal weapon in the infowar they are panicking.

This truth isn't depressing it is thrilling and exciting to expose truth. Sure it is sad but when we see the latest Bilderberg attendee list doesn't have a Rockefeller or a Rothshild rep on the list when there always is then we know they are becoming scared to go to these events. The more we can disrupt their communication the more we frustrate them and that is awesome!

I'm convinced that the only reason we haven't seen another 9/11 style false flag is because they know that there are operatives for truth everywhere and plenty of outlets for whistle blowers to send info. Camera phones everywhere let's see them try it lol.

Of course they will infiltrate sites like this and make threads about how we are "doing what they want" by following this stuff lol. Very clever but it won't work. The cat is out of the bag and there is no way we are going back to talking about Bigfoot.


I agree with you 100% mon ami!

And I would have starred your post 20 times over if I could have...

Peace!!

Are you sure you are getting closer to the truth or further away?

I can assure you it does not matter what evils you expose, you are simply showing that the fire exists, not starving it of it's heat. By fighting this fire with fire you feed it.

Actually, I'm quite positive that my journey is leading me closer to the truth.

The fact that I choose not to focus all of my energy on the negativeness of said truth is my saving grace.

If you want to stand around with your head in the sand, oblivious to what is happening to your fellow man...Well, that's fine by me.

But DONT, just because you have complacent disregard of said truth, try to influence my opinion, or others who are on the same quest for this freeing knowledge.

Tell me something...is ignorance really bliss friend?

I pray for your enlightenment (before it's too late).


Good day.

I have an indefinite amount of time to do as I please, just as you do.

You may not be able to perceive it but simply being positive is just as powerful as "doing something" about what is happening in the world.
