The post 3 Things Sheeple Do That You Don’t Have To appeared first on Waking Times.

Sheeple-1Sigmund Fraud, Staff Writer

Do you ever get that feeling like you’re surrounded by automatons, people who merely mimic life, without really living it?

Sheeple, as they may be called, are otherwise ordinary folks who’ve adapted particularly well to the workforce/consumer/obedience training agenda. They’ve been taught to be docile, foolish and easily led. They’re particularly keen at following mainstream narratives and adapting to group-think and group-behaviors. Almost criminally uninformed at times, they are predictable, obedient, gullible, and uninquisitive, always doing their part to sustain the cultural power dynamic by policing and enslaving themselves and staying focused on whatever tasks have been given them. The primary rewards for their acquiesence being comfort and the illusion of security.

Sheeple are everywhere, to be sure, but a tremendous counter movement is rising in opposition to this engineered madness. The amount of people waking up is truly inspiring, and a big part of this transformation is a growing awareness of just how much of what we do and what we think is not actually born of original thought, but rather instructed by cultural programs scripted by industry, government and the psychopaths at the helm of spaceship earth. Waking up from this is a certainty, once awareness of it kicks in.

Here are 3 things that sheeple do that you don’t have to…

1. Self-Sabotage

Like a vampire who must be invited to gain entrance into the home of his victim, much of the matrix is an invitation to indulge in self-destruction. It’s voluntary in many ways. Its traps are devised of appeals to ego, to tastebuds, to pleasure, and to our want of convenience and instant gratification… nothing we can’t live without. It sells things that taste sweet, at first, but ultimately prove impossible to quit and even more impossible to pay for.

Sheeple can’t say no, even when they know they are doing harm to themselves. They will consume whatever is presented to them, whatever is waved in their face the most frequently and the most fervently, consequences be damned. Sabotaging their own physical and mental health for the thrill of convenience and addiction to over-stimulation, sheeple will fall for just about anything. They’ll happily follow their tastebuds all the way to the doctor’s office, and gleefully sign credit card receipts until they’re totally sunken in debt.

But you don’t have to do any of this. You don’t have to work jobs you hate, you don’t have to watch television every night in a drooling daze. You simply don’t have to treat your body and mind with as much contempt as the controllers do. Your life is precious and worth protecting in every way possible.

“People are sheep. TV is the shepherd.” – Jess C. Scott

2. Buy Into the Script, Wear the Mask, Play the Part

It’s difficult to know sometimes if art is imitating life or if life is imitating art, but this is the 2nd century of the self, and mass media has brought about some uncanny opportunities to make a big deal out of yourself and take yourself way too seriously. As many people do.

Who are those people who camp out at retail stores for Black-Friday deals, then beat and trample each other when the doors open? Who are these people who get so enraged by sports wins and losses that they burn their own communities to the ground? Who are these innumerable people in neckties commiting their lives to filling the corporate mold? The list goes on and on.

Self-image is used against us to confuse us and midirect us. We’re fed the illusion that we need to have things or be a part of things in order to feel complete, in order to feel secure, in order to be happy and worry-free. We’re taught from early on that there is safety and security in assimilation, comfort in sticking to you place in the group. Discomfort in rocking the boat.

Sheeple chase illusions and conform to scripts, choosing masks and fully devoting themselves to playing their part. Even if it means scuttling their humanity along the way.

None of this actually matters, of course, because we are all multi-dimensional beings, locked into into a dense material body for some short period of time on this suffering but breathtakingly beautiful planet. When we re-awaken to who we truly are, the masks disappear and there is no longer a need to conform in this way. We are free to be whatever we want and whatever we need to be in order to survive and thrive in the matrix.

“We are not supposed to all be the same, feel the same, think the same, and believe the same. The key to continued expansion of our Universe lies in diversity, not in conformity and coercion. Conventionality is the death of creation.” ― Anthon St. Maarten, Divine Living: The Essential Guide To Your True Destiny

3. Forfeit Sovereignty and Defer to Phony Authority

Helplessness and deference to authority are encouraged by our education system, our government, and our corporate overlords, and we are increasingly told to give up our personal power and dignity to the policy makers and phony authority figures who govern us. Sheeple relenquish their sovereignty without objection, happily deferring to authority if it means less responsibility for them. They support causes they don’t understand and they’ll participate in riots they have no business being involved in. They know nothing of their legal or natural rights, and even less of the courage it takes to exercise them. Along for the ride, and as useful as idiots, sheeple prefer the dyanamic of being told what to do.

The disempowerment game is about creating dependency on government, on corporations, and on peers for acceptance and approval, while creating supporting actors for the players who are influencing our world. It’s also about warping people’s sense of responsbility so that the crimes of government and corporations can more easily go unpunished. Take the the Milgram experiment of the 1960’s, as an example, which demonstrated how people are naturally inclined to permit the torture of other human beings, so long as a so-called authority figure is in charge and is accepting responsibility. The sheeple are those who would watch others being assualted, and instead of helping them, they only record them with their smartphones.

A costume and a paycheck do not give one human being special rights over another, except in the matrix, where sheeple have been trained to submit to and obey anyone in a color-coordinated uniform with a badge and a walkie-talkie. Sheeple are happy to participate in these disempowerment games and defer their responsibility to others, but all it takes is a simple, confident, ‘no,’ to change the dynamic in any relationship, and we truly do not have to forfeit our personal severeignty and defer to phony authority.


“It’s a sad and stupid thing to have to proclaim yourself a revolutionary just to be a decent man.” – David Harris

The human spirit is far more powerful and determined than any social engineering or brainwashing program. It is simply unconfinable to these spiritually debilitating prisons.

Merely being aware of this is enough to break the habit of mental slavery and reveal a more truthful perspective on life and the ways in which the dehumanized systems in our world are organized against us. It takes one to know one, and after waking up from contemporary consciousness, our world looks much differently than it ever had before, and it’s easy to see sheeple for what they are. And it’s easier to be yourself and not just another member of the herd.

Watt - If you haven’t figured it out yet, there’s a global awakening going on.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, there’s a global awakening going on. Those people who are waking up to the true realities of the world are doing so in a large variety of ways; however some of us only get some of it, whilst others are playing with as much of it as they can. The harsh truth though is that most of us don’t get much of it at all.

Thankfully, it is changing. Person by person, group by group, powerful conversations are occurring in the conscious society and we’re inching closer to the tipping point which will send the collective consciousness of humanity into a dawn of illumination and activism. This will be the beginning of building a world where we can truthfully say that we care about each other and our environment. One day, we’ll have become truly educated.

The two overarching areas of the ‘collective awakening’ are captured in the internal realm and the external realm. Moreover, waking up in each of these dimensions is composed of two parts: the first is a greater clarity of the current state of reality, whilst the second is what needs to change.

Continuing with the duality theme, there are two aspects that really portray what’s going on inside of us. Becoming aware of our infinite spiritual nature is the first, where we tap into our experience of consciousness in expanding and interconnecting ways. The other is personal growth, which of course is about healing and balancing out our emotional, psychological, intellectual and other human vitalities.

On the outside, once again there are two areas that reflect where our concentration should rest. The first is the reality of the world around us, including dysfunctional power structures and the social systems in need of change, especially the way that we economise our global society. The second area is how we personally contribute to the societal activism that is collectively required to realise the evolution of our uniting global culture into a more healthy, happy, harmonious, honourable and environmentally-friendly future for our people.

After all, playing our small part in giving back for the benefit of each other is everyone’s responsibility.

Recently, the global economic “correction” has been all over the news. If we follow the right experts, we’d have known this was coming and that it’s nowhere near finished. Nevertheless, there’s no need to fear. This inevitable downturn in our global economy will be a process, with months of swings that may even last a couple of years. Eventually though, it will lead to an economic reset and hopefully even a huge transformation to the system if we capitalise on it appropriately. This just might be the catalyst for change that we’ve been waiting for.

Being the initial phase, we’ve got time to think of the billions of people who suffer from the immoral actions of a corrupt central banking system owned by private banking families. We should also organise our minds and hearts to be aligned with the awakening community and contribute to the tipping point. Simply, this is our opportunity to collectively debate and agree on alternatives to this bullshit story that we’ve been conditioned to believe as the only way to design our lives.

Integral to this process is understanding the need for change to the materialistic, individualistic and consumerist culture which has been born from the capitalist structure. These ideological frameworks have generated highly toxic levels of greed, competition, corruption and vanity, as well as decimated the natural systems of earth. Most humans, however, are loving and giving at their core, so if we redesign the system, we encourage healthier values to manifest for both individuals and the whole.

Make no mistake about it though; we’re living in crazy town. There are a massive tribe of people who already understand this systemic shift loud and clear, including those who made up the Occupy Movement, who are still itching for this change today. There are more grass roots movements that want this too, including Permaculture, The Venus Project, Ubuntu, Zeitgeist, Anonymous and Transition Towns, as well as many others. And even though there are many alternative economists and social commentators that are screaming for change to the models that fuel our social engines, we must also accept that the masses are still locked into the matrix media that has been bought by the power structures as a tool to maintain the status quo.

So, why do we need change? This is summarised in 11 Toxic Realities Society is Finally Waking Up About. To elaborate, 22,000 children die from poverty each day. There is a growing number of people who can’t find work, which will no doubt continue to skyrocket over the coming years. Massive numbers of immigrants are fleeing Africa and the Middle East from their war torn countries. There are millions of people in the US, let alone all over the world, who are on food subsidies. People are in the depths of emotional and physical poverty that is increasing all over the world, including in Australia and other ‘developed’ countries. And we definitely need change for the majority of the people who “believe” they’re disconnected from their unity and who are strongly lacking peace in their humble but majestic existence.

Plus, we need change for ourselves. Every person needs to understand this mess that we’re in, so together we can identify the problems and design solutions. To start, the single most systemic priority we should have right now as a uniting global culture is to redesign our global economy for the benefit of all people, so please click on this link now and sign the petition.

If we still don’t understand all of this, don’t fret; all of us at some point didn’t either. But personally I am still yet to meet one person that didn’t want substantial change too once they truly understood the depths of the problems. The reality is that we’re told it is the way that it needs to be, that there are no alternative solutions and that we just have to accept things the way they are. Well, that’s utter bullshit. There are legitimate alternatives, both short and long term solutions, and if we actually do awaken like so many grass roots movements and individuals are doing all over our gorgeous earth, we may actually facilitate the change that we desperately need.

Our future communities are relying on us.

The Result? Play Our Small Part in Transforming the Internal and External Realms

An interview with Zen Gardner

Zen is a writer, speaker and activist in helping people disconnect from mainstream programming. He is an expert in living outside of the system whilst still engaging with it to spread love and wonder. His website is full of truth serums on the world at large.

In this interview he discusses the awakening he has gone through, both in his spiritual and systemic understanding. He emphasises the need for individual societal activism that ensures as a collective we design and create a true world of love and peace.

The Verdict

We need to take action, no matter how small. Yet so many in the spiritual or new age community are dormant agents of change because they’ve been sold the lie that they need to “transcend their ego”. Yes, we do exist in a duality, and even though that duality is illusory, it’s still a layer of truth. In this respect, the selfis fundamentally faux; however the ‘self’ or ‘ego’ is still an indispensable aspect of the human experience. Without it, we’d simply cease to exist.

That’s why the goal is to expand, evolve and enlighten our finite nature (self-awareness or ego), as well as train it to understand its infinite nature (awareness or God). Simply, both are real, just one is more fundamental than the other. Therefore, to kill the ego is to kill our humanness; instead, we need to enlighten our ‘I-ness’ to understand its ‘all-ness’. Simply, whilst we’re human we have an ego, so the point is to empower it, not disempower it.

In most instances this confusing concept is referring to transcending vanity and the ‘illusion’ of separation, or something to that effect. Obviously that is a valid practice, yet the core definition of the ego is simply “I-ness”. In the spiritual community, this of course is understood as the human snapshot of consciousness which co-creates with many snapshots of consciousness in a reality made of unity consciousness. Now, that’s a mind-full.

We are all the same, yes, but we are all different too. Both layers of truth should be celebrated and respected. Plus, laughing and playing and exploring the depths of the human experience is a bloody awesome way to live and helps to heal and grow our energetic blueprint, or soul. We need to ensure that the core truth is recognised too, which is of course the fundamental priority.

The other disempowering and harmful teaching is to “observe and not judge”. To start with, just observing life with no judgement is inherently impossible because then we wouldn’t know when to eat or talk or what to even say. Yet even if it was possible, it’s passive, inactive and achieves nothing. The simple truth is we need to use the ego to do an assessment and form a conclusion on whether our environment should change or not, including our own behaviours. Anyone who says “observe, do not judge”, did an assessment and formed the conclusion “to not judge”. The inherent contradiction in this ‘belief’ is abundantly clear.

In addition, if we decide our house needs to be cleaned then we’ve made an observation, done an assessment, accessed our memory and formed the conclusion to clean the house. The same goes for the world too; clearly it needs to be transformed, especially our social systems. For example, where would we be without Gandhi, Buddha, King and many others not forming their judgements (observations, assessments and conclusions) on the world around them and then taking action to evolve that which they judged to need evolving? Backwards, that’s where.

Ultimately, we need society to come to agreed judgements on how our world needs to change to move into our next collective stage of evolution. Just observing won’t do that, neither will wasting our time and energy trying to transcend the very thing that enables intentional change in the first place; our I-ness.

The post Just How Many Garbage Patches are There in Our Oceans? See for Yourself appeared first on Waking Times.

Ocean Trash PollutionChristina Sarich, Natural Society
Waking Times

Watch how trash pollutes over the years…

Our oceans not only provide ample food for us when they are in peak condition, but they sustain life on this planet. In a visual representation experiment of the garbage patches around the world’s oceans, we can see just how seriously we’ve affected our oceans through Big Ag practices, littering, corporate disregard, and additional environmentally unfriendly practices which affect Mother Nature’s ‘womb.’

Some are already aware that there is a garbage patch off the coast of California that is thought to be roughly the size of a small state. Called the Great Garbage Patch, it spans from the US West Coast all the way to Japan. There are two other areas in the world that have been collecting enough debris to be given a garbage patch signification of their own though, in both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

Visualizing the Mess

These massive rubbish graveyards are hard to visualize, but Greg Shirah and Horace Mitchell have published their garbage patch visualization experiment results online this month from the NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio.

Data collected from NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which details information from floating, scientific buoys distributed across the oceans for the last 35 years, are depicted in pictures and video. You can see first-hand how all the trash ends up in 5 gyres, the so-called ocean garbage patches.

Despite legislation in the US enacted in 1972 known as the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (Clean Water Act), corporations have ‘soiled their own beds’ with massive amounts of waste.The Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act (MPRSA) was legislate at the federal-level in 1972 and amended in 1988 by the Ocean Dumping Ban Act.

MPRSA was enacted to prevent dischargers from evading the Clean Water Act by dumping wastes in the ocean as an alternative to land-based sites. Two are its main purposes: regulate the intentional disposal of materials in marine waters, for which the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are responsible; and to promote related researches, under the supervision of the EPA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOOA).Even with these regulatory bans, corporations are often only given a slap on the hand, and no criminal charges are ever brought to the forefront for offenders.

The MSRA states that it is illegal to dump anything:

“. . .including, but not limited to dredged material;

solid waste; incinerator residue; garbage; sewage; sewage sludge; munitions; radiological, chemical and biological warfare agents; radioactive materials; chemicals; biological and laboratory waste; wreck or discarded equipment; rocks; sand; excavation debris; and industrial, municipal, agricultural, and other waste…” (EPA) Any private person, employee, agent, department, agency, or instrumentality of the Federal Government, of any State or local unit of government, or of any foreign government must comply or pay an administrative civil penalty up to $50,000 for noncompliance and up to $125,000 for dumping of medical wastes with additional criminal penalties.”

You can see how these penalty amounts are little more than a pretext for lawmakers who want to win an election or gain political influence, and have no real influence over the actual behavior of those who are polluting our oceans the most.

Other countries have their own laws to ‘discourage’ ocean dumping, but India, China, and the US, among many other nations, don’t seem to understand the gravity of the growing garbage patches. Every year, between 5 and 13 million more tons of plastics wind up in the world’s oceans and a whopping 80% of that waste pours in from just 20 countries.

The US Department of Defense is arguably the absolute worst when it comes to defiling the oceans, and rivers, and thus, we can see why no hardball legislation is passed to protect this precious earthly commodity.

Where Does All This Trash Come From?

Perhaps unsurprising is the fact that along with polluting our air and soil, companies like DuPont, Dow, Syngenta, Pfizer (an offshoot of Monsanto), Monsanto, and Bayer are on the same list as companies like BP and Exxon Mobile (known for massive oil spills) for polluting our air and likely oceans.

Massive amounts of plastic, including microscopic bits and pieces that end up living inside marine animals and runoff (including pesticides, herbicides, and non-organic fertilizers) are some of the worst offenders when it comes to fouling the great blue waters.

Additionally, pharmaceutical waste is flushed into our municipal water supplies, which is then often dumped in the ocean. NOAA states:

“Recent studies have confirmed the presence of low levels of pharmaceuticals in estuaries, rivers, streams, and ground water as well as in sediments. The ecological effects of these contaminants in coastal waters are largely unknown. However, there is growing evidence that some of these chemicals may have negative effects on reproduction in aquatic species or stimulate the development of antibiotic resistant bacteria.”

You might not be able to see how this run off affects tiny creatures, but more than one-third of the shellfish-growing waters of the United States are adversely affected by coastal pollution – much of it coming from industrial agricultural practices.

Not only are these companies destroying life on land, killing off bees, monarchs, and other pollinators, they are ravaging life in the water.

If you really want to ‘get it’ – how truly harmful the behavior of these corporations is to our oceans, the pictures and video provided by the visualization experiment help tremendously. You can see the experiment above.

Video – It’s common knowledge that smartphones emit radiation, even though the argument continues regarding just how dangerous this radiation is to the human body. The SAR metric – Specific Absobtion Rate – is the rate at which radiation from a phone is absorbed into the body. The maximum allowed by the US FCC is 1.6 watts per kilogram of flesh. So which phones are closest to meeting this maximum legal radiation level? Below you’ll find which phones give off the highest radiation and how some of the newest phones stack up.

Stock Market CrashIsaac Davis, Staff Writer
Waking Times

The economy is collapsing and the stock market is crashing… again. Is this crash the big one, or is it just another hiccup on the slow road to certain doom? Should we stampede, or should we continue to graze?

“The bubbles must continue until morale improves.”Max Keiser

For those who’ve shouldered the responsibilty of understanding how our government and econonomy truly work, this new, latest economic collapse, is not in any way unexpected, but rather a predictable certainty in a long train of abuses by government and Wall Street. You see, the economic system is designed to fail. Collapse is in its DNA.

At its core, our fiat-based, reserve-currency, derivates-driven, interest rate-manipulated economy is a criminal enterprise that is explicitly designed to fail at offering human kind an equitable, just and common-sensical way to facilitate exchange. However, it is very well designed to transfer wealth from the middle class to the wealthiest of the world’s elite in crisis after financial crisis until the whole thing collapses. It is engineered to implode.

To most, it may appear to be failing, but in reality, the crash of the stock market and the instant vaporization of trillions of fiat dollars of wealth is a built-in feature of the greatest heist in human history. The economy is a Ponzi scheme; a well-known, very calculated method of extracting wealth from others. It can be done on a small scale, or it can be scaled up to rob entire nations, entire civilizations even, or, as we see developing right now, perhaps even an entire planet’s worth of wealth.

For simplicity, here’s how Wikipedia defines it:

A Ponzi scheme is a fraudulent investment operation where the operator, an individual or organization, pays returns to its investors from new capital paid to the operators by new investors, rather than from profit earned by the operator.” [1]

In other words, to play the game you pitch in money and then tell other people to play the game with you. When enough new people pitch in, the earlier people are paid out with money pitched in by the newer people, and everyone is then told that the company is a great success, the evidence for this being that people are getting paid. More people buy in in order to be part of the success, and the scheme metsastizes.

An Italian criminal born in 1882, Charles Ponzi is the sub-genious of the Ponzi scheme. His story is an exaggerated version of the typical ‘crime doesn’t pay,’ tale, where a crafty criminal dies penniless after winning big, losing big, and spending much of his life in jail. The allure of living in luxury with quick money taken from others is too great a prize for some:

“In the 1920’s, Ponzi promised investors a whopping 50% return in 45 days, or 100% in 90 days on of all things, international postal coupons, which he never actually purchased. He earned $15 million and became a millionaire in only six months. When Ponzi was caught one year later, investors received a mere $5 million back. He was charged with 86 counts of mail fraud and sentenced to 5 years. During his time in federal prison, he was prosecuted again in Massachusetts, but Ponzi claimed double jeopardy and his case went to the Supreme Court. He was then sentenced to seven to nine years in state prison. After Ponzi was released, he launched another scheme, where he sold real estate that was literally underwater. Not surprisingly, the namesake schemer was jailed yet again, and ultimately died penniless in Brazil, working as a translator.” [2]

In recent years Wall Street billionaire Bernie Madoff conned $65 or so billion dollars from investors in what is the largest Ponzi scheme on record to date, although that does not figure into account that the global economy itself is a Ponzi scheme, a tremendous fake.

In a scam like this, there is never any value created by the company, there is no legitimate product or service, and there is no legitimate profit. When new people stop signing up, or too many people want out at the same time, the money flow seizes up and the enusing crash exposes the scam for what it was… theft.

“To avoid having too many investors reclaim their “profits,” Ponzi schemes encourage them to stay in the game and earn even more money. The “investing strategies” used are vague and/or secretive, which schemers claim is to protect their business. Then all they need to do is tell investors how much they are making periodically, without actually providing any real returns.” [3]

The art and craft involved in managing a good Ponzi scheme is in how well the perpetrators can position themselves for the inevitable crash and bust before it actually happens.

READ: The Gods of Money

While things are going relatively well for all in the economy, the financial elite spend their time and money buying up land, industry, war materials, yachts and anything else you can imagine. When the economy finally cracks completely, they are prepared to survive, and perhaps hoping to usher in a new world, maybe of the kind envisioned by the Georgia Guidestones

Financial analyst Max Keiser has for a long time been one of the most rabid voices exposing the financial criminals who are working to plunder and pillage human race. Here he explains a Ponzi scheme in the context of modern derivatives banking and what would happen to many of the world’s major banks if the market manipulation ceased and our economy was given the chance to function without the interference of criminals.

So, is this crash the big one? It could be. It might be. Time will tell, but the con-artists behind the magic curtain are out of tricks to keep all of this afloat for very much longer. Quantitative easing doesn’t even work anymore, so who knows what tricks the central bankers will try to pul out of their sleeves. Better be prepared for it at some point, anyhow.

Fortunately, though, many people around this world are moving into more sustainable ways of living, more sustainable ways of being, and more equitable ways of trading with one another. At the same time, many people are waking up to the realization that the corruption in the economy is the cornerstone of ‘the matrix‘ and must go. Something major must change in our culture, and while the spectre of economic collapse is frightening, it is also a sign that a major opportunity for the liberation of human kind is close at hand.

In the mean time, we are being scammed, and Charles Ponzi would be proud of the work he’s inspired.

Are you an OTC drug junkie? Frankly, most folks today are because they are dealing with some sort of ailment or even a chronic condition. Do you think because you can purchase OTC drugs in pharmacies that they don’t cause harm to your body? Well, maybe trusting healthcare consumers need to think twice before picking up another OTC pharmaceutical.

There’s a classification of drugs called anticholinergics, which included numerous OTC products such as antihistamines, antidepressants, and even bladder control drugs. Anticholinergics include bronchodilators. They also affect senior citizens, which may not be a well-known side effect: “In fact, even small increases in so-called anticholinergic burden or load increase the risk of morbidity and mortality in older individuals.” [1]

Anticholinergics use needs to be taken seriously—not just popped into the mouth without realizing negative health consequences—as they block the neurotransmitter acetylcholine action in the brain [2]! They are used often by patients with asthma, gastrointestinal cramps, incontinence, muscular spasms, depression and sleep disorders.

The questions consumers need to be asking themselves are, “Why am I depending upon something that is interfering with my brain?” “Can those OTC drugs be contributing to my memory problems—even dementia?” “Are there other remedies that will provide relief but not interfere with my brain’s neurotransmitters?”

Why should consumers reconsider OTC drugs; aren’t they safe? Even though they are approved for OTC sale, here are some of the potential side effects from anticholinergic drugs:

Potential Adverse Consequences of Medications with Anticholinergic Properties [3]

  • Blood pressure, increased
  • Breathing difficulty, changes
  • Clumsiness or unsteadiness
  • Convulsions
  • Digestive system changes, e.g., Bloating; Bowel motility, decreased; Constipation; Ileus, paralytic/adynamic; Nausea or vomiting; Swallowing difficulty with dry mouth
  • Mental status/behavior changes, e.g., Distress, excitement, nervousness; Attention, impaired; Cognitive decline; Confusion/disorientation; Hallucinations; Memory loss; Restlessness or irritability;
  • Delirium
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Heart rate, increased
  • Lethargy, fatigue
  • Mucous membrane dryness: mouth, nose
  • Muscle weakness, severe
  • Speech, slurring
  • Skin, changes: Dryness; Sweating, decreased; Flushing; Warmth, excessive
  • Vision impairment, changes in acuity: Blurring; Glaucoma, worsening; Eye pain; Light sensitivity
  • Urinary retention or difficulty

Coincidentally and unknowingly, consumers may be taking an OTC drug that automatically is raising their blood pressure, all while your MD keeps adding more prescription drugs to lower it! Ever think of that?

That would be something to bring to your MD’s attention or even make a special appointment to discuss: the fact that you are taking OTC drugs that could be impacting an Rx drug you are taking and really may not need.

There are non-pharmaceutical or natural remedies that deal with most physiological health issues that one would take anticholinergics OTC drugs for. Here’s a list of some.

According to a paper published in Urology [4] Herbal treatments are an increasingly popular alternative for treating OAB [Overactive bladder]. A 2002 survey of US adults aged ≥ 18 years conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicated that 74.6% of those with OAB had used some form of complementary and alternative medicine. The World Health Organization estimates that 80% of the world’s population presently uses herbal medicine for some aspect of primary health care.

Probably that’s why Big Pharma is getting into vaccines so heavily, i.e., to mandate consumers in Western World countries take their pharmaceuticals by laws enforcing vaccines, since much of the world wants to stay with complementary, alternative or even shamanic healthcare. I wonder why!

The post The Full Spectrum Guide to Practicing Non Compliance in the Matrix appeared first on Waking Times.

Breaking the ChainsJulian Rose, Contributor
Waking Times

As the ugly realities of the control system become ever more apparent so does the dialogue increase about what can be done about it. ‘Non compliance’ features prominently as an important tool for counteracting the slide into slavish conformation with the powers that be.

In general, as I see it, there are two main strands of choice available to those who wake-up and feel impelled to take a stand: the outward focussed activist approach and the one that favours withdrawal from the system and ceasing to comply with the status quo: ‘non compliance’. Practising both at once is a pretty tall order, but not impossible.

In affect, they are two sides of the same coin. Both are valid ‘actions’ to counteract the abysmal slide into slavery. However the activist approach usually demands having one foot in the status quo in order to be affective in ‘working from the inside’ and/or going out to make a stand in  defiance of the rape of the planet. Whereas the non compliance approach makes its stand through refusing to comply with demands of the status quo control system in everyday life.

For the purpose of this piece I am focussing on the ‘non complaint’ side of  the coin, but broadening out its scope to encapsulate some elements of the activist agenda which we should all be involved in by now. Pure ‘non compliance’ is, if anything, the tougher of the two consignments.

Let’s start with ENERGY. To be non compliant in this field one needs to start by focusing on one’s own energy. As I say in my book ‘Changing Course for Life‘:

“The amount of outside energy that we seek to utilise in our daily lives is proportionate to the amount of inner energy that remains unrealised in us.”

So the main call here is to kick-into a sustained manifestation of one’s own creative energy. The need to suck on technologically processed corporate energy is then immediately lessened.

But still, there are many ‘greens’ who still take ‘the grid’ for granted and remain addicted to hitting a button to heat the room. Hitting another button to cook the dinner and another to wash the clothes. Going off-grid (in the post industrial Northern hemisphere) may constitute the best practice of non compliance in the energy sector. Few have gone that far, but those that have are demonstrating what is possible and what may become a bench mark in the not too distant future.

If you can’t get that far, then switch your fuels away from fossil based energy sources and to small scale solar, wind and biomass fuels. Heat pumps to warm the home are also useful, as is geothermal energy if one is fortunate enough to live near a source. Rivers and streams can provide clean non grid energy too, via small generators like the Pelton Wheel. Go for it! More can be done than you may think.

FOOD. It’s clear by now to most reasonably aware human beings that food has become one of the most dominant control tools of our time. So extreme is the denaturing of what was once ‘genuine food’ that it is impossible to remain a ‘main stream’ food shopper/consumer without ingesting a continuous stream of pesticide residues, growth promoters, colouring agents, preservatives and, if you live in the USA, genetically modified organisms… for starters. Thus going into a non compliant mode with food is the starting point without which, quite frankly, one is nowhere. Except in a line at the doctor’s surgery.

Fortunately there are many alternative options available today to supporting the supermarket corporate food industry’s vandalisation of food and farming around the world. So to get seriously in line with supporting the longevity of planet Earth and ceasing to give your money to corporate vandals, one needs to get involved with local producers of ecologically raised fresh and seasonal foods. There are farmer’s markets, farm shops, box schemes, cooperative agricultural growers and suppliers and many more such outlets.

You can take the further step of starting to grow your own foods. That’s brilliant! Join a city garden scheme; get onto an allotment plot; join with others to rent some land and share the work load. So it goes on… food independence is the most basic level where non compliance with the powers that be is able to be manifest. We should all be able to achieve this (in varying degrees) in whatever ways seem most appropriate to each individual.

SHELTER is one of the basic necessities for all of us. It is surprising how few consider what role materials play in the ecological equation that is part of getting non compliant to the standard building practice of the housing industry. Many facets of standard house building contribute to resource mining as if there were no tomorrow. Concrete, modern day bricks, timber from vast monoculturally managed (or logged) forestry operations, fittings and fixtures manufactured in foreign factories paying slave labour wages..are just some examples.

To cease supporting this purely profit motivated industry, one needs to explore the potential to build a house or shed using clay and straw, hemp, cob, rammed earth, or timber from sustainably managed certified woodlands. It’s all out there… and its mostly cheaper than the standard materials. So, get non compliant in your mode of living!

Okay – MONEY! This is a big one. It is the manipulation of money that holds the entire world to ransom from day to day. And it is the bankers who grasp the reins of material power with both hands, conducting a massive fraudulent ‘free trade’ global marketing exercise which leaves the human population of the planet ever more divided between outrageous wealth and abject poverty. ‘Fiat’ money markets dominate global financial institutions in a virtual reality world of manipulated exchange rates, ‘derivative’ trading and speculative ‘hedge fund’ gambling ventures. Frankly it’s all gobledy-gook to most people – and that’s an intentional part of the master plan for global domination. It’s falling apart even as I write – but we need to give it a further push.

So, where to go to get non complaint to this vast behemoth? Start off by shifting any available funds into genuine ethical banking organisations. There are many in the UK and in most other European countries and they exist in the USA as well. They maintain a code of practice which obliges them to not accept investment from or for war related military issues, nuclear power, fracking, GMO, agrichemicals, exploitive mining operations and so forth.

Then there is bartering instead of exchange of money, LETS schemes and alternative currencies like the Bristol and Totnes pound in the UK. Look these up on the internet for further information. Innovative ways of supporting alternative life styles and small scale farming operations are springing up all over the place these days. Community Supported Agriculture is one such, and getting involved means an exchange of work can replace the need to pay out for your daily food needs. Pioneers in these fields are truly activists of the top draw. We can all play our part in shifting the resource game away from the inhuman megalomaniacs who hold sway at this time.

TAXATION. This is a tough one too. Withholding tax delivers a powerful message to government. In the 1960’s there was a popular wave of withholding tax amongst UK and US anti war activists. It happened again against the development of nuclear power stations. What was learned from these actions was that this is something that has to be done in numbers. It can be suicidal to go it alone, as one is too easily picked-off without anyone else ever hearing about it.

I have great admiration for those who refuse to pay taxes in a targeted fashion. Tax’s are, after all, a calculated demand for government revenue over which one is offered no choice at all. How tax’s are set, what they are used for and how they are gathered are all controlled from a centralised bureaucracy that is directly linked to elitist halls of power. Those halls of power are master tax evaders in their own right! Billions get stashed away in ‘tax havens’ and other such fraudulent regimes every year – and no one seems to end up in prison as a result. So why should ‘the people’ be threatened with jail when they fail to pay for the military industrial complex to go blundering into foreign countries on endless illicit killing sprees?

The only halfway transparent tax system is that practised within small regions or counties, where it is possible to see approximately where one’s money is going.

To get around this system there are a number of options: one can go persona non grata; operate under the radar; be seen to be earning less than the taxable starting point or doing the real thing openly – in numbers. It would be good to hear from anyone who has embarked upon this form of activism. We need to form powerful and determined bodies of courageous individuals in order to make this one stick.

Next let’s look at COMMUNICATION. The communication ‘industry’ is a monster. It’s prime role is the dumbing-down of the populous. Mind control is always hovering behind the glitzy adverts for convenient consumables. Personal technological communication gismos like Ipods  mobile phones, tablets and laptops, should all carry a health warning along with the mobile towers that supply the signals. This is due to the spread of electro magnetic smog that pollutes the surrounding environment and the neo cortex of those committed to this form of communication: some 80% of Westernised societies. Of course, what is ‘communicated’ on these gismos can be as toxic as the equipment! From the point of view of the microwaves, the old fashioned land line telephone looks positively benign by comparison.

Television is the number one communication mind killer, not because it is emitting harmful cathode rays (which it probably is) but because of the content of the programmes that appear on it.. and who is controlling that content. Now just six corporations own all the main stream media on the planet. They ain’t going to show you how to build a free energy machine or what substances are in chemtrails..

‘Real communication’ is an art form and belongs in the realm of theatre, music, literature, poetry and dance. In order to take a non compliant position vis a vis communication, we need to tidy up our own vernacular and our verbal/written skills at passing truth from person to person. Overtly casual ‘chat’ is a form of pollution and a waste of precious vital energy. How we use language is critical: aware communicators do not call a group of men and women ‘you guys’, for example. What is that doing? It is destroying the dignity, beauty and subtle sensuality of all that makes a man and a woman special.. not just indistinct neutered plasma.

TRANSPORTATION. This is a big time industry if there ever was one. The road and airline industries are two of the biggest lobby groups on the planet. On a par with Big Pharma and Agribusiness. Motorway construction and high speed rail are two of the favourite control system formulas for keeping us in line – usually a straight line! They blast their way through often pristine countryside and prime farmland, cutting off villages and animal migration routes in the process; simply to serve the all important ‘business community’ and ‘free trade’ agenda.

A to B routes only link big cities and the centralisation of power which they stand for. We have the template in Hitler’s World War Two autobahn construction. Yes, they are fascistic models for fascistic societies.

There can be no doubt that the bicycle and the horse are the finest form of transport available to us. Their ecological footprint is virtually zero. On a par with these are one’s own good legs and feet. Then come a whole host of other practical ways of getting one’s self and one’s goods around: canal barges must rate highly, moving goods and people, low-tech and slowly, by water is a green and benign transportation system. Electric vehicles are also in the running for light footprint movement. Rickshaws, roller skates and scooters aren’t bad either!

However, the car and the van may be indispensable to some – including me, due to my having one foot in a farming and forestry business. So then we need to explore other options to run our vehicles, such as bio-diesel, methane and various processed inflammable gaseous substances. Getting non compliant while keeping a foot in the status quo is tricky – yes.

CLOTHING. We all need clothing. But the clothing industry is a nightmarish corporate steam roller. Just consider the sweat shop wages that are paid to those who try to earn a living in the factories of the super-brands that dominate high street shopping today. Then look at the price paid for the end product. It’s a classic case of rip-off consumerism – and it puts the accumulated wealth into the hands of the already wealthy at the expense of humanity as a whole.

Clothes have a special place in our lives. We wear them everyday. They have direct and intimate connection with our bodies and skin. Therefore their vibrational aura carries through to us whether we like it or not. So beware: not only is there the prison like production line of the sweat shops to take into account in mainstream clothing, but there is the fact that the materials used will have been sprayed with toxic chemicals and will also, if cotton, increasingly likely be GMO.

Then you will find ‘nano-clothes’ and all sorts of weird and wonderful synthetic substances being woven into the cloth we all wear. Once fabricated, garments are sprayed again with fungicides and other noxious chemicals to act as a preservative against mould and wrinkling. The clothing industry is yet another form of exploitation of the health and welfare of the human population.

Breaking out of this? Number one: Don’t go on irrational spending sprees just because you want to ‘be fashionable’… well that’s pretty obvious. Look for woollen articles, they are at least relatively ‘natural’. Then, if you are handy with needle and thread, try making your own clothes from natural materials. Underwear should be made from organic cotton/wool – its proximity to reproductive organs means the possibility of systemic absorption of pesticide residues. There are organic clothing outlets – and they should be explored – if one cares enough and if the prices are acceptable.

So that’s enough for now – the categories go on and on of course, but I hope I have covered some of the prime areas in which we can shift our emphasis away from the powers that be and into a mode which is supportive of the universal principles of harmony with nature and the biosphere – and each other. As the founders of ‘Rising Vibrations’ state in a recent article, we need to “collectively de-construct the hierarchies within ourselves… and continue to assert our inherent sovereignty, helping to rebuild ecosystems and create renewed communities… giving no further energy to the unnatural systems of man.” Bravo to that.

Just in case anyone is thinking I might be a good example of ‘non compliant’, I may have to disappoint you. My score is probably 6 out of 10. Long way to go still, but happy to be on the road!
