Will the Revolution Be Televised?

We live in a time not only of great change but of endings and a new emerging humanity. This stirring in the hearts of man is bringing to the surface a need to remove what is no longer ‘workable’ to allow our personal futures and the evolving human species room to blossom.  There are many ways of doing this, some fraught with danger and they seem to add to the chaos.

When we look at the word ‘revolution’ it is often associated with force, violence, our news media and history books reaffirm this definition; but it doesn’t need to mean this, a change of system can come about in many ways.  When we hear of a ‘revolutionary new idea’,  if it’s really that good we will in most cases go for it, it will gradually be absorbed into our world.  Sometimes things are transparent and we absorb it unknowingly, like definitions of God.  A forceful revolution always has casualties, and although change is often essential, there is a need to consider the price paid and the consequences of violent uprisings.  What we need to ask is, “Can there be a change which benefits us that has minimal amount of suffering for the broader community?”
The Maze of Life
We are caught in a maze, a mousetrap so it seems.  The world is divided by religion, false Gods, maybe some real ones, zealots, cult-heads, robe wearing people entrenched in ideas from the past being resold as paths to liberation and enlightenment, some are even offering glorious wisdom that is extremely useful in dealing with the endless stress of everyday life which has now reached epidemic proportions.  Governments rise and fall, mismanaging their responsibilities to the communities they are elected to serve; in their roles they have become slaves to private agenda, ‘hidden bankers’ who are not so covert any more and corporate greed.  Lies in the media, and the opiate of the people now seems to be ‘distraction’, anything at all to move attention away, trivia 24/7. Buddhists and some others say ‘Be Here Now’, attempting to remind us that we are absent and missing the beauty of life; the religious fundamentalists tell us we are doomed because we don’t fit into their shape of ‘the faithful’, some totally misunderstand love and the obvious fact that families come in all shapes and sizes; they evangelise and lecture us, and insist that if we don’t serve and worship their God, we will burn in hell, regardless that most of them do not know the history or the crimes committed by their religions.  There are those who mistakenly think the world is divided into spiritual on one side and material on the other, as if the world is ‘Boolean’, ones or zeros, true or false, us and them.  We are in this together.
“The wise man looks into space and he knows there is no limited dimensions.”
There is a beauty in Taoism, the wisdom in the words of Lao Tzu are humbling. It is clear to me that we can find a comfortable place in the endless expanse of the cosmos without lessening the quality of what we are, what I mean here is ‘humility’ is about expansiveness, the ability to embrace everything as having value and place ourselves beautifully among it all, as opposed to shrinking into the definition of humility of ‘not being worthy’ and cow-toeing like a peasant before a tyrant king .  I am not a Taoist, nor a Buddhist, but I find that when I look through these windows there are things that I would miss if I was just peering out the skinny telescope of the culture I grew in, that limited view of some Christians ‘we are working towards the afterlife’, the promise of future paradise, always tomorrow, ignoring the fact that we are magnetised to a big rock floating in space, and also missing the obvious that the only constant is ‘everything is in motion’, nothing is solid or static apart from emptiness, the living void that sits under everything.
Dumbing Down the Masses
The elite (and I won’t even bother about arguing their existence, we are a generation or two past that now), those tyrants who put themselves and their private agendas first, and sit behind those in the seats of power and the systems that keep the global community suppressed, their greatest enemy is ‘an intelligent and informed community’.  That is why misinformation is their most useful tool; if you spread misinformation, in its naive innocence a non-alert mind will easily submit and believe anything; it is so busy trying to do the basics in his or her world, to get enough money for shelter, food and entertainment; a dull mind does not have the energy or in many cases the sharpness to discern what is true and how ones liberties, rights and sovereignty is being eroded away by the signing of documents by politicians. Keeping people distracted with shiny sparkly things that are always just out of reach, works beautifully in dis-empowering communities.  If you create havoc in countries by overthrowing the government, supporting them publicly and are also funding the enemy to overthrow them, the destabilisation model works well, you can steal their wealth, sell them weapons, and then create structures to help yourself to what you want, then publicly make speeches on the humanitarian crisis at hand.   When some nutter with a religious fixation or bee in his bonnet goes rogue and does something to undermine the community, you can then target the issue in the media, create greater paranoia and xenophobia, divide your community, tighten your security and then funnel more funds to where you want them; away from the very people who needed them in the first place, erode the society and create more social problems to be shaped into political policies.  Is there a conspiracy? Seriously? Well, it comes down to ‘which one?’ The problem is everything has become so ‘normal’, what was once was considered conspiracy has crept in and become a natural part of life.  Is this true? Absolutely and it’s not even debatable any more, I gave up discussing it about 30 years ago because it was so obvious then, it is up to the individual to educate him or herself or suffer the consequences of being asleep, almost comatose.   Based on what I consider as true, what on earth do we do? 
Create the Problem and People will Swallow Your Solution
All cults work around the model of ‘tell people the problem, then supply a solution’ with themselves at the centre. We need to be aware of this, otherwise we will be fooled, not just by religious cults and organisations, but the political cults of private agenda who tell the world how to think, offer a story that is a lie but is perceived as truth.  In my case I am putting forward the problem, I have no cult, is there an agenda?  Maybe if there is one, it is point out that we need to think for ourselves, to question everything, to discern, to be able to develop a type of intuition that ‘feels’ with a combination of commonsense, being well informed and have an ‘alive sense of internal monitoring’ that can quickly ascertain if something is’true or false.’  The great ‘lies’ are a mix of true and false; the classic model of getting people to give up the chase is to put out the combo of false-true-info, prove the false to be an untruth, and then people turn off the sniffer dogs and the truth gets lost in the mix.   Once this happens a number of times, people give up and go back to trivial distraction.  The UFO phenomena has been a perfect example of this, it is a masterpiece of deception, thousands of incidents explained away, complete with a chorus of people who intentionally create fake phenomena and then go public on how they do it.  The ‘wall of laughter’ grows and those who have seen something out of the norm become the focus of ridicule.  This is not an article about life forms way beyond human comprehension who dart across the sky; when I think it through, I would say it is about the great lie, the dumbing down of humanity while the worlds resources are stolen from under our noses and words on pieces of paper enable armed thugs to commit atrocities against human beings who have a natural right to food, water, shelter and other things that contribute to joyous lives.
Nicely Dressed Criminals
The governments are generally run by thugs in suits; although they are elected to SERVE the PEOPLE, they abuse the roles entrusted to them and carry on as if basic human rights and needs are privileges that are to be carefully distributed only to those who they see as worthy recipients; all others are vilified as if they are worthless vermin who must be corrected and adapt or pushed into shape to become worthy citizens of the ’empire’.
Those who are ‘slightly comfortable’ and a little cashed up and are duped by the system, they often target the distressed and broken and see them as being undesirable and a burden on the community they are in; when in truth it is the very structure and divisiveness of the system they live under that creates the problem.  By blaming the downtrodden and those that some  see as being dysfunctional, the attention is moved away from the governments and those with a responsibility to uphold the well being of the community.  Many in the community have an attitude of ‘what’s in it for me’, ‘if i am okay, well why aren’t you okay?’, ‘if i could do it, why can’t you?’  People do not understand that trauma runs deep and although it doesn’t immobilise everybody, many people fall through the cracks.  I question whether a society based around an inbuilt ability to acquire wealth is a fair system; each of us has a different set of skills, should people be discriminated against if they don’t have a natural skill to put into place things that allows them to acquire wealth and care for themselves?  This may be considered that I have an attitude of ‘create a world of bludgers and sponges who are leeches on the community, it’s not.  I think we need to find ways for people to be cared for and help them contribute if they can, and some people just can’t; the extensive social problems that come from the traumatised and the broken, need to be sorted at the source, not at the end of the chain of experience.  What we need is our sense of humanity to be restored.
What is a Real Revolution?
Maybe we need to reconsider the meaning of ‘revolution’; I think revolution starts with ourselves, claiming back our power, and that means our self-worth, not being a slave to limited thought, recognising that there are opportunities, there are other ways of doing things. We have become hypnotised and indoctrinated by the Hollywood worldview, as if everything needs to be a victory and one man standing on a hill at the end among devastation, the hero against all odds, and he’s usually an American; there are other ways, everything is not so EPIC.  We are bombarded by news articles that highlight the tyrants, their crimes, the injustices and mobs running rampant attempting to overthrow the leaders, their thugs, the military and police that they use to control those who are not party to their agenda. The thinkers, educated emotionally intelligent people, those who analyse what is going on and the creative minds are their biggest enemies.  The petty tyrants are scared of consciousness breaking through, they want a dumb semi-comatose community, they want people to be enraged by the injustices so they can flex their muscles and say ‘I told you so’, they want people to meet them on their terms, with might, with violence.  As each incident happens they put into place tighter laws and have greater control.
With Made Up Contracts They Have Taken Away Our Basics Rights
We live in a world where the water is being stolen from us, there are many places where you can’t collect rainwater, it is illegal, there are those who say we have no right to it, or no right to have an open fire, obviously someone who is careless may start a bush-fire; mowed lawns with neat edges have a preference over gardens of food; in some places it is now illegal to live off the grid; every inch is being mapped to be part of a greater system, documents telling us that somebody can take away the right of living in nature .  Groomed dogs in nice jackets have become wimps and social ornaments, they’ve lost their doggy nature, they can’t even shit without a support team, they are not allowed to swim at or visit many beaches, man has gone crazy. We humans are expected to be part of this system, to use the power, the water, the roads, by doing this we are indebted and dependent… and dependence means control, and control means we are dis-empowered.
Revolution Starts in the Mind
Although every so often we hear conspiracy stories about mind control, which no doubt would be true in some cases.  We have something that the ‘elite’ are most troubled about, it is the last frontier that they cannot enter, it is the ability to control the mind; it aint going to happen, there is a temple inside us that can survive all hardship, this is a critical thing to realise; regardless of propaganda, misinformation and all shiny and sparkly objects, our ‘mind- space’ is a fortress. The rivers are dammed, the water is stolen, numerous crimes against humanity under the guise of economic growth, austerity packages, genocide, governments intentionally breaking the back of the man in the street with inhumane policies to make the community dependent and squashed into shape, they steal the wealth for their own projects, their underground cities and off-earth agenda, these exist, research it, wade through the conspiracy nonsense with discrimination; gray men in suits meeting to manipulate global agendas, the over-throwing of sovereign nations, the dumbing down of education, incarceration of people for petty crimes when those who commit transgressions that violate human rights wander freely to add more mayhem to communities we live in. Many people are broken, but there is something extraordinary emerging.
A Different Revolution
Revolution, and claiming back our power is not about protesting in the streets; and saying this I would not criticise anyone’s methods or right to be heard; all that burning of cars, being violent, uncontrollable anger built up from anguish, frustration and a sense of injustice, hatred of the elite, overthrowing governments, it creates fear and terrorises everybody, the thugs want this, so they can do the ‘told you so’, and create harsher security.  What is required is an evolution in consciousness, it is related to abandoning the known, walking away from limitation, seeing something undreamed of in a future time and stepping into it; to some it would sound unrealistic and Utopian. However, the future is unwritten, and we are active co-creators; if we are in fear, we cannot add our portion to the future. Although Mother Earth and the stars have their own destiny that will undoubtedly unfold in its own way, and is untouchable by our will, we do have the ability to create something that is ‘not part of our known’, an unwritten script is there for us to pencil the way forward. Regardless that the Mother Earth may shake her garment to bring back her beauty, we do not need to be a casualty of the change, we can chart another pathway.  This would sound like new-age-flippy-floppy, but I am confident we are not powerless.
Recycled Thought
Our mind-spaces are full of refuse, old garbage is continuously being recycled; we constantly take the known limited worn out thoughts and ways of doing things, reuse it and shape it into other useless things;  we keep redoing things that just don’t work, if it wasn’t painful, I am sure an alien species watching on would find it hysterical.  But there is tragedy in reality, we keep on overeating, filling ourselves with intoxicants, drinking the poisons of life, stuffing in misinformation and trivia, violent imagery as entertainment; we know what is good for us but there is an internal saboteur that undermines us, something inside says, “go right”, we head left without even blinking ASAP.
We Hold the Power
Bringing our thoughts under control is where the power is, it is where we can claim back our sovereignty; the mind-space is untouchable by others. There is a need for us to throw a lasso around the raging bull of the mind, to tame it, not kill it but to be a master of it, not the slave.  The ‘show’ on the stage of life will change, but the restful mind can remain a fortress. Without a peaceful uncluttered mind-space it is impossible to see ahead, and if we can’t see forward, the creative potential which is natural to us, can’t click in.
One of the issues that I see that we have is that many people are traumatised, those coming out of war zones and disasters are in such a state, it is near impossible for them to see something in the future that is not colored by the experience they have gone through, this is not an unreasonable view. And seeing they are so unstable, it is critical that we create something in the future, they are incapable of doing it at the present time.  I won’t hesitate to state that the disruption and creation of fear in the global community is not an accident, or just a result of human nature , it is intentional, and although it sounds like a conspiracy theory, it is not too far fetched to say that there are always people who are focused on self interests and have a private agenda that allows them to benefit from a destabilised global community, I do not need to roll out a list of those who committed crimes against humanity..  It may sound a little odd, but to assume that only people who have a positive agenda for themselves and others have the ability to use and understand the concept of our endless creative potential, would be very naive.  The world has had numerous tyrants throughout history who against all logic and what we as a community consider to be the right way to treat each other, have managed to commit atrocities without blinking an eyelid, they have done hideous things that undermined our well-being; to say these people no longer exist or are not in any places of power or are able to influence various world events, would be extremely foolish and naive, just watching the news there would be enough food for thought on this issue.
The Giant Screen of the World Around Us
The screens have changed now,  no longer is it just the ‘box’ as the TV was once known as before it became flat and ‘plasmic’, one of my teachers at school called it the ‘idiot box’. The screens now come in all shapes and sizes, they deliver in real-time; fortunately it is not just one source of news we receive; although we still get the ‘agenda’ view belted at us via the television, online news media giants and newspaper publications, it is an ‘intentional’perspective of those who have a ‘big picture’ agenda which is at times difficult to pin down as it has so many tentacles and faces, but it seems to be implemented by governments everywhere who are slaves to the moguls of finance who keep the politicians wallets nice’n’chunky and feed their hideous desires.  With the expansion of information delivery from multiple sources, there are now other options to consider as possible truths.  Like a kid in an ice-cream shop who in his excitement could chomp on anything that looks okay, developing a sense of what is worth digesting is imperative, as is choosing what pops up on our screen of choice.  The screen is closely related to our mind-space; the idea of ‘we are what we eat’, can be altered to include, see, think, feel, imbibe from all directions. This is our food, what is coming on our screen is shaping our future. The revolution we are seeking needs to be on the screen of our mind, because THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE CONTROL OVER.  And this does not mean to look away from the chaos and pretend it is not there, but there is a need for us to keep it in its place, in the same way as when we meditate or pray, if the mind wanders we bring it back into focus.

The Future
Once we take responsibility for our actions and start to bring into focus things that have some type of positive potential and change, as the wheel of life revolves, what will emerge will be a real revolution, one from the inside, not one that is destructive.  It is ‘the one of the emerging new civilisation’ that many seers have spoken of, it is not a picture created by the prophets of doom, gloom and destruction.

Yes, the Revolution Will Be Televised, it is up to us to bring it onto our screen.
