Consciousness is the state or level of awareness within oneself; i.e. awareness of one's own existence, thoughts, feelings, experiences, needs, and desires.
It has been defined as: sentience, single-pointed awareness, subjectivity, the ability to experience or to feel, wakefulness, having a sense of selfhood, the executive control system of the mind, and the indwelling witness.
Despite the difficulty in definition, many philosophers beieve that when we have a higher awareness in ourselves, we are more likely to live a more peaceful, purpose driven life—leading to more success and happiness.
David M. Jacobs, Ph.D. is Associate Professor of History at Temple University. Having conducted nearly 1,150 hypnotic regressions with over 140 alien abductees, Dr. Jacobs has uncovered, in great detail, the alien interbreeding program designed to create a new race of humans loyal to the alien intervention.
Karla Turner, Pd.D. authored three books on the alien abduction phenomenon, Into the Fringe (1992), Taken (1994), and, with psychic Ted Rice, Masquerade of Angels (1994). She was convinced that aliens were here not to help us, but to steal from us the sovereignty of our souls.
Former professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Pulitzer Prize-winning author John E. Mack M.D. conclusively proved that aliens exist through an exhaustive study of people who claim to have been abducted by aliens.
Thich Nhat Hanh said, ‟In our consciousness, there are many negative seeds and also many positive seeds. The practice is to avoid watering the negative seeds, and to identify and water the positive seeds every day.”
Bing Crosby said, ‟You got to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, and latch onto the affirmative. Don't mess with Mr. In-Between.”
Carl Jung said, ‟Man's task is to become conscious of the contents that press upward from the unconscious.”
ALSO: ‟Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
AND ALSO: ‟People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own souls. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
David Icke asked, ‟When you look in the mirror what do you see? Do you see the real you, or what you have been conditioned to believe is you? The two are so, so different. One is an infinite consciousness capable of being and creating whatever it chooses, the other is an illusion imprisoned by its own perceived and programmed limitations.”
Eckhart Tolle said, ‟The awakening of consciousness is the next evolutionary step for mankind.”
Anthon St. Maarten said, ‟The divine self is the author of our life story, but without sufficient spiritual awareness the human self tends to rearrange the plot.”
Self perception is how the individual subjectively evaluates their own appearance, behavior, and characteristics; i.e., everything that makes them up.
Self perception is typically in the context of how an individual views their own physical qualities, however it can also be how they view parts about themselves including:
Our self-perception determines our behavior. If we think we are small, limited, inadequate creatures, then we tend to behave that way, and the energy we radiate reflects those thoughts no matter what we do. If we think we are magnificent creatures with an infinite abundance of love to give, then we tend to behave that way. Once again, the energy around us reflects our state of awareness.
Virginia Satir said, ‟We must not allow other people's limited perceptions to define us.”
‟Songs are as sad as the listener.”
—Jonathan Safran Foer
‟The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”
‟It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.”
—Henry David Thoreua
‟The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.”
It is a fact known to historians that the tall-masted sailing ships of Captain Cook, Ferdinand Magellen, or Christopher Columbus arrived at the coasts of South America, Cuba, or Australia and were practically ignored by the inhabitants of those places even when they were anchored very close to the coast.
These observations gained prominence with John Banks, a botanist on the ship of Captain Cook. According to Banks, on several occassions when their 106-foot long ship, Endeavour, came close to the coasts of Australia, the inhabitants paid no attention to them. The ship would pass within a quarter mile of native fishermen who wouldn't even lift their heads from their tasks to notice such gargantuan ships, let alone react or respond to something that was alien to them.
Similar experiences were reported by Christopher Columbus about how the native Indians could not see the ships that were in plain sight.
This gave rise to a theory called "Invisible Ships Phenomenon." The explanation to the natives indifference to alien objects like the ships was that these objects were so alien to the natives that their mental categories and receptors were unable to process these alien objects, and the ships remained invisible to them.
We can interpret something only in terms of the basic components that make up our awareness. When the known components do not perfectly fit the reality, we describe it approximately in terms of the closest fit to those components.
This theory could answer many questions such as:
‟The more I see, the less I know for sure.”
‟To change ourselves effectively, we first have to change our perceptions.”
—Stephen R. Covey
‟Reject your sense of injury and the injury itself disappears.”
‟All things are subject to interpretation. Whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.” —Friedrich Nietzsche
‟When we become fixed in our perceptions, we lose our ability to fly.”
—Yongey Mingyor Rinpoche
‟Your agreement with reality defines your life.”
Roy T. Bennett said, ‟The outer world is a reflection of the inner world. Other people's perception of you is a reflection of them; your response is an awareness of you.”
‟What lies beyond the limits of the human body has an ontological status of less than nothing.” —Thomas Kuptz
Don't waste this opportunity - the relative calm before the next storm - to do what needs to be done and get what needs to be acquired.
Here Alexander M., a London Barrister BTW, is rather a bit agast at how our legal system has decayed into a fraud on the law. How any prosecutor, lawyer, or honest District Attorney can say “Esquire” in public now is beyond me. So this is how an honest and moral Lawyer sees the US “Legal” System, now. Hope you can live with that.
Then, in other news, it seems that the song “81 Million Votes My Ass!” has topped the charts. You go Kari!
Our Fraudulent Rulers are attempting to destroy Donald Trump, and by that, destroy our America and us (with our “horrible” and “Despicable” culture of honesty, truth, and real justice for all…). Remember when it was said, by them, that it was nearly criminal to talk about Biden as having criminal questions since he was a “candidate”? Yet now they can do nothing but that about Trump.
Well, OK, I now have a very simple test available: IF the Bidens (2 or more of them…) are not indicted, and found guilty, and put in prison; then we know that the Rule Of Law is dead in America. That any idea of morality or fair play is entirely stupid. That all rules of propriety are out the window. that the time has come to act as you would with the Mafia or any other RICO Qualified Criminal ruling over you.
Simmilarly, ANY finding that Trump broke a law, and any “disqualification” from running for office, similarly says that the entire Federal Government is really correctly described as being in D.C., the District Of Criminals. Again, the only answer is treat them as the Mafia that they are, then.
‟I have a dream that the people we elect to run the government will be the ones who actually run the government.”
Forgive me for bringing this up, but remember the first impeachment of Mr. Trump on the grounds of a phone call to freshly-minted President Z in Ukraine pertaining to some fishy matters around the Burisma gas company? Yes, Mr. T was impeached over a mere inquiry into possible misconduct by a former high US official (being one “Joe Biden,” ex-veep) and his bag-man son. The setup was patently obvious even to us bloggers who enjoy no intimate correspondence with organelles of the DC Blob. A CIA spook “whistleblower” named Eric Ciaramella (sssshhhh) was injected into the scene with help from the devious Col. Vindman at NSA and an assist from Intel Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson… and voila! Recall the solemn pageantry of Nancy Pelosi’s march across the Capitol rotunda with the hallowed bill of impeachment on a satin pillow….
Contrary to popular opinion, God is not a Supreme Being, but the exact opposite — Absolute Nothingness. In fact, the entire reason that people suffer is because they are attached to 'being', and fail to understand that Non-being is the very basis of existence itself. In the immortal words of the Tao Te Ching, "All things are born of being; being is born of Nothingness." Nothingness is not barren oblivion, nor the opposite of life and 'being'; rather, it is the creative, fertile, and boundless principle that serves as the source and ground of beingness itself. Empty and vast, Nothingness is pregnant with limitless potential and fecundity. In theistic terms, Nothingness is God. Rooted in the teachings of the world's greatest sages, such as Lao Tzu, the Buddha, Adi Shankaracarya, Meister Eckhart, and Nisargadatta Maharaj, "God is Nothingness" explores how Non-being is indeed the root of all existence. Even more valuably, the book reveals how to actually awaken to Nothingness—how to realize God.

And now, more than three years later, the nation is informed of all the particulars around those Burisma Company’s doings with the Biden family in granular detail ($5-million plus $5-million), laying out just one instance of treasonous moneygrubbing by this family among many grifts in other nations. And in case of any lingering questions — if the news media were not a pseudopod of the Blob — a long roster of bank transfer records has been assembled by Rep. Comer of the House Oversight Committee to validate the deal memos, emails and audio recordings already available for inspection in the alt.news.
You realize, don’t you, that the DOJ and the FBI had all of this info (a.k.a evidence) in its possession even before Trump impeachment number one? AG William Barr and FBI Director Wray could have stepped up at any time after October, 2019, and said, “Oh, here’s what that phone call to Z was about.” That they didn’t is arguably the most blatant crime among scores of crimes committed by the Blob in the Trump and post-Trump years.
Federal Justice Manual 9-5.000, Section B: Constitutional obligation to ensure a fair trial and disclose material exculpatory and impeachment evidence. Government disclosure of material exculpatory and impeachment evidence is part of the constitutional guarantee to a fair trial. Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83, 87 (1963). The law requires the disclosure of exculpatory and impeachment evidence when such evidence is material to guilt or punishment.”
So now the Blob is desperate to jettison this embodiment of its corruption and lawlessness, “Joe Biden,” before the Trump-deranged masses start paying attention to the distant yelling from the asteroid belt of actual news beyond noisy Planet MSNBC. The Blob will be fighting for its very life anyway. The Ukraine operation is not proceeding according to plan. Do you know why? Answer: because it was a stupid plan concocted by purblind Neocon idiots. Russia has been insulted to the degree that it deems America unworthy of negotiation — meaning Russia will bring the Ukraine mess to a conclusion on its terms. They will take care to do it gingerly, so as not to further inflame the psychosis afflicting America and tempt us into even grosser stupidities. Namely, they will insist on a neutral Ukraine with no foreign operators in it and some rearrangement of Ukraine’s borders. America will have to lump it. The Blob Neocon faction will blame the whole lamentable affair on “Joe Biden,” who, by then, will be gone from the White House.

Back in the 18th century, people who wanted to be free of British tyranny had to organize and inspire those who would eventually become the leaders of the American Revolution. They did so by publishing letters and articles in various publications and newspapers. These publications ranged from pamphlets to small newspapers. The most famous of these were the 85 articles published anonymously, under the pen name “Publius,” but they were in fact written by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison between October 1787 and May 1788, eventually becoming known to us as the Federalist Papers.
Back in the 18th century, newspapers were largely related to the affairs of government, whether proclamations, laws, orders, or money. This was by necessity; because of weak markets, tight credit, scare supplies, poor transportation, and irregular labor, printers who did not have a connection to government contracts had a near impossible time making ends meet. Sound familiar? We have the same issue today. The MSM publishes what they are told to publish. They say what they are allowed to say.
Reliance on government largesse shifted in the 1760s, as political items, stories, and essays about the burgeoning “imperial crisis” appeared more frequently. Starting in the 1760s the number of newspapers rose significantly, and the government had a tougher time controlling the narrative. These papers became so influential that the government of King George did all that it could to silence them. Parliament passed the Stamp Act in 1764, which taxed newspapers, almanacs, pamphlets, broadsides, legal documents, dice, and playing cards. Issued by Britain, the stamps were affixed to documents or packages to show that the tax had been paid. No document could be published without having a stamp affixed to it. This was a blatant attempt to prevent the press from publishing anything that wasn’t approved by the Crown.
The Colonists responded in the way that Americans still do today when they are told not to do something: they did it harder. There were more than four hundred pamphlets published in the colonies on the imperial controversy up through 1776, and nearly four times that number by war’s end in 1783. These pamphlets varied in their theme and approach, including constitutional theory or history, sermons and orations, correspondence, literary pieces, and political debate. Together, they instructed the colonial public that political and personal liberty were in jeopardy because British imperial reformers sought to strip them of their natural rights, especially the right to consent to a government that could hear and understand them.
Speech is a powerful thing, and it is required for people who would resist tyranny. It is speech that allows people to organize. It gives them hope, it gives them the ability to protest in an organized manner. Without the ability to motivate and organize, change and resistance to tyranny becomes impossible. If one or two people resist, they go to jail. Ask the J6 protesters what happens when you prematurely try to take action.
The key political pamphlets that supported resistance from 1765 to 1776 were:
Now I make no claim to being as influential or intelligent as those greats, but that is what I do here. I, like many other freedom bloggers, make people aware of what is happening. It took them decades to convince the colonists to revolt. That is why speech and “talk” is important. That’s why I support other bloggers and provide them a place to say what they want without interference. I do so at great personal risk. I recently had a group of people try to dox me. I know that I am not absolutely anonymous, and I also know that this places me at risk once things get sporty.
Even in 1767, speaking out was a risk. One of the owners of the Boston Gazette, John Gill, was caned in public by an outraged John Mein of the Boston Chronicle over an article that had been written by the former. Later, Samuel Adams, writing as “Populus,” described this clubbing not as a private affair between the two printers but instead a “Spaniard-like Attempt” to restrict press freedom.
Nearly two years later, Mein sought to embarrass the Sons of Liberty once again, this time the Chronicle featured fifty-five lists of shipping manifests revealing the names of merchants who were opposing the crown. In response, many upset Bostonians who embraced vigilantism. The Sons of Liberty had to stuff pistols in their pockets to walk the streets of Boston. A few days later a large crowd confronted the offending printers on King Street, producing a scuffle that left Mein bruised, Fleming’s pistol empty, and a few dozen angry Bostonians facing British bayonets. Mein eventually had to flee to England.
There are those who periodically come around and call me out for “just talking.” They demand that I take action. One did so just yesterday. There was a Fed who tried it in 2022.
There is an old saying: How do you spot the Fed or the police informant? He is the one urging you to break the law.
Let me also repeat what I said on this same subject, less than three months ago:
If you still feel that all we are doing here is talking and you disagree with me, feel free to go out there and stack up. Do what you think you have to do. Just don’t say that you weren’t warned, and don’t sit safely behind your computer keyboard and tell me that I am a coward when you yourself aren’t doing shit.
