Are you concerned about reptilians?

If you already know a lot about them, read my posts and join me in a dialogue of discovery about them.

If you know very little about them, start by watching the video Reptilian & Annunaki History, then listen to the Richard Vizzutti audio files, then the David Icke interview on Red Ice Radio. After that you should be well enough informed to watch any videos and know if they are truth or lie. There are more videos on my YouTube channel.

This is not an easy journey. It is a profound shock to discover that everything you once believed about life is a lie. Congratulations on your courage.

On the power of telling the truth

We are living in a world where we believe that man is born bad and has to be made good. It the core premise of all of our middle eastern religions (judao/christian/muslim) and underlies all of our cultures. From it springs all of our political and legal systems where people have to be taught to be good from childhood and forced to be good in adulthood.

This is quite simply wrong. For many of us, when we look within, we know it is wrong. We know that, at our core, we are good, so how is it that other people can do the things they do?

My position is that we do "bad" things because we are trying to survive in a dreadful culture that forces us to do "bad" things in order to survive. From childhood we learn to over-rule our consciences and our compassion for others in order to survive. We are not born bad; the culture makes us bad.

I recently watched this excellent video of George Lakoff, where he talks about Moral Politics, or how conservatives and liberals think.  He pretty much sums up the "original sin" take on human beings with his description of how conservatives think - the strict father model.

My premise - apparently the liberal premise of George Lakoff - is that people are innately good and do bad things that they think are necessary for survival. Our innate compassion or empathy tells us the right thing to do, and our conscience tells us when we have betrayed that.  Both of these, our compassion and our conscience talk to us through our emotions, and the more we repress our emotional truth, the further away we get from our conscience.

For example, we work in a corporate workplace. We have a nasty boss who sets us up against a peer. We do the wrong thing by our peer in order to please our boss. Our emotional empathy for our peer tells us not to do what our nasty boss wants us to do, our survival instinct tells us we have to do it, so we repress our empathy and do it. Our conscience pricks - we feel bad about ourselves, which is uncomfortable. Eventually we learn not to empathise with workmates and drive our conscience far enough back that we can barely hear it, all in the name of survival.

To reverse this, we simply start telling the truth and take the consequences. In the example above, our truth is to tell the boss we won't do it, whatever it is, and the reason why.  If we lose our job, sobeit - that is the price we have to pay to retain our integrity - to tell our truth.

I am always looking for the simplest process to get to a particular conclusion.  Let's face it, the average person is not going to listen to, let alone understand, George Lakoff, or obscure discussions in the cultural implications of original sin.

So how do we bring about the re-integration of emotions that I believe will lead to the re-emergence of compassion and conscience? I think that simple process gets triggered when we start telling our personal truth.  I suspect that this action will inevitably lead to the re-integration of our emotions, which in turn will inevitably lead to the re-emergence of conscience and compassion. With conscience and compassion in place we do not need the "stern father".

This is a bottom up revolution. We start with the self. We offer everyone around us a moratorium on telling the truth - that is, we promise not to react badly to any truth they tell us, however bad it might be. We wipe the slate clean and start again, even if the process causes us pain. (The Christians might call this forgiveness.) We use ourselves to test how this process can work. If we can make it work well for us, it will work well for all those who have told us their truth - they will feel relieved of the burden of lying to us.  If they feel good enough about it, the idea will go viral. That's my revolution.
