Not everyone reading this will be able to receive the message of my article, and not everyone who receives it will ever truly be ready…. but here it is. You are being manipulated.Your perceptions are being programmed.
“So you think you can tell
Heaven from hell
Blue skies from pain.”
This is the real threat or “virus” currently at work on humanity.Think about all the sources of information you receive on a day to day basis. Where does the information come from? Who decides the narrative? What is the agenda? Who owns them?
I used to be part of the problem. As a ’20 something’ I worked in broadcasting, a reporter on local radio who also read the news across different networks. Like many I was affected and somewhat traumatised by the events of 9/11, and at the age of 17 my ambitions to have a career in the media were solidified. The drive for truth and justice were my main motivations.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?”
I got my big break in the industry whilst covering another journalist, it was during that shift fate came ‘a knocking,’ the phone rang and it was “Jo from number 10.” She informed me Tony Blair was to stay in the North East and only one journalist was to interview him and cover his visit. It was December 2006 and headlines such as “Brits 45 mins from doom,” and “Mad Saddam ready to attack: 45 minutes from chemical war, “ had dominated Britain’s biggest selling newspapers since that day on September 2001. It is safe to say I had some questions. Yet upon meeting “Jo from Number 10” it quickly became very apparent I had very limited scope in what I was actually able to ask the Prime Minister.
Despite the fact an enquiry into government declarations that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction (which ultimately led to the invasion of the country in 2003) was in the public interest I was censored. I was told on no uncertain terms by “Jo from Number 10” that I was to stick to local issues only and my interview was to be policed by the suits and security surrounding Mr Blair. Even Emily Maitlis would struggle to find an angle on Saddam Hussein having chemical/biological weapons, was working towards nuclear capability having “bought significant quantities of uranium from Africa,” and Christmas in Darlington.
“Did they get you to trade
Your heros for Ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?”
I have friends, good people, who still work within this industry who are themselves unware of the part they are playing in the illusion of truth and service. Put plainly, the mainstream media aren’t working for our good, too many are owned by billionaire moguls that are uncomfortably close to government and commercial interests. ‘This concentrated ownership creates conditions in which wealthy individuals and organisations can amass vast political and economic power and distort the media landscape to suit their interests’ (MRCR 2019). Just like my experience in 2006, journalists are heavily censored with narratives constructed and controlled under a specific agenda. It is deliberate, and often a distraction to what is really going on.
“Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange..
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?”
The aim of the mainstream media is to control the public perception of world events whilst simultaneously maintaining a state of anxiety in the audience. Your fear is weaponised, and through this vulnerability you are much more malleable and agreeable because of it. In this emotionally charged/semi traumatised state you look to authority for protection and guidance, just like children reaching for mummy and daddy to keep us safe from the big bad world. Take for example the wars in the Middle East in retaliation to 9/11, we supported our government’s action as we believed our lives were at risk, but it was all a lie. Just like Dominic Cummings breaching the rules he created to keep us safe from the Covid 19, actions speak louder than words.
“We’re just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year”
By 2010 I’d left my career in the media after a friend shared a YouTube movie titled Zeitgeist. It was the archetypal Matrix ‘red/blue pill’ moment and since then it has become somewhat of a trend to learn and know about the ‘deep state’ ‘illuminati’ and ‘the cabal.’ Yet it is not enough to just become aware of the ways in which we have been misled and manipulated, in doing so we only swap our subconscious slavery for another form of fear vibration (albeit conscious). Our very existence has to be proof against it.
“Running over the same old ground
What have we found?
The same old fears.”
There is a synchronous, higher and wiser intelligence that moves through us all, a natural order to life. It something more sovereign than any man made rules or laws. I call it God. You may call it ‘the Tao’, ‘Allah’, ‘divinity’, or ‘spirit,’ and whilst the label is actually irrelevant,harnessing its energy and manifesting its expression through our being is how we get out of this cess pit of deception. There is a war being waged upon your consciousness, time to switch the channel.
‘Wish you were here.’
