You have arrived, by your effort alone, to what the shamans of ancient Mexico called the topic of topics. I have been beating around the bush all this time, insinuating to you that something is holding us prisoner. Indeed we are held prisoner! This was an energetic fact for the sorcerers of ancient Mexico. – Don Juan, The Active Side of Infinity
I recently received an email from a long-time reader of my blog who expressed that he intuited “a malevolent force on the other end orchestrating everything” Like many of you, I know this feeling all too well.
When Carlos Castaneda asked for a logical explanation from Don Juan in response to the above quote, Don Juan said, There is an explanation which is the simplest explanation in the world. They took over because we are food for them, and they squeeze us mercilessly because we are their sustenance. Just as we rear chickens in chicken goods, the predators rear us in human coops. Therefore, their food is always available to them.
This malevolent force that Don Juan refers to as The Predator is, unfortunately, gaining energy to the point of nearly overpowering the whole of humanity. I have written about this before and then decided to stop writing about it so as not to give it energy through the mere mention of it. However, this malevolent force is rapidly expanding, increasing in size, and consuming the entire planet.
What are we to do as we lose our privacy thanks to the Orwellian reality of global surveillance? What are we to do as we lose our autonomy at a rapid rate thanks to being told what to say, what not to say, how to measure our responses to situations and people. We are losing our ability to be free to manage and select our own life choices. We are becoming ONE MIND but it’s not one mind in the sense of freedom through harmonic unity, it is one mind in the sense acquiescing to and maintaining the mind of The Predator. Humans are consuming the Earth and everything within it while the Predator simultaneously consumes us.
I want to appeal to your analytical mind. Think for a moment, and tell me how you would explain the contradiction between the intelligence of man the engineer and the stupidity of his systems of beliefs, or the stupidity of his contradictory behavior. Sorcerers believe that the predators have given us our systems of beliefs, our ideas of good and evil, our social mores. They are the ones who set up our hopes and expectations and dreams of success or failure. They have given us covetousness, greed, and cowardice. It is the predators who make us complacent, routinary, and egomaniacal. They gave us their mind! Do you hear me? The predators give us their mind, which becomes our mind. The predators’ mind is baroque, contradictory, morose, filled with the fear of being discovered any minute now. – Don Juan
The human race is turning into a bunch of horrifying zombies while on the path of destructive consumption. Senseless murders, violence, and even genocide occur at an alarming rate. The suffering that is placed upon all of creation by human beings is unfathomable and must cease. Refugees attempting to flee the violence have nowhere to go. There will come a time when we all need to, want to flee and there isn’t anywhere safe to flee to anymore.
I don’t know much about the Bible but Jesus said, forgive them for they know not what they do. He was, in my estimation, referring to the people whose minds have been taken over by the predator; those who would do anything in their power to weaken any sense of harmonic unity. Humanity is under constant attack and we are at a critical time in human history when we must collectively awaken!
The predator has always existed but since the population on planet Earth is so great right now, and the force of it is driven by the social order, or dominant paradigm, it is enormous. This paradigm is a fear-based, hate-filled, angry, greedy, consumer-driven, egocentric, self-absorbed, and power-hungry state of being. Its main goal is to undermine our decision making authority and fill us with a sense of dread, worthlessness, and hopelessness. Instead of recognizing it for what it is and rising above it, humanity has perpetuated its existence and as unwitting accomplices, watches in either horror or ignorance as it continues to grow.
So what do we do? We must begin by changing our attitudes, to ignore those who dare to publicly display the face of the predator through their own need for power and control; to practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty. We have to begin to remember that we are all an expression of the one Source, the singular energy that exists everywhere and was created at the same time. We need to attempt to collectively energetically overpower the predator with hope; to exist in a state of hopefulness that a mass awakening may emerge that can bring us, at the very least, back into a state of balance. I wrote a blog a while back called Transforming the Dark Force in which I discuss how we can come to recognize that the dark and the light forces are illusions
As President Snow said in the Hunger Games, Hope, it is the only thing stronger than fear. A little hope is effective, a lot of hope is dangerous. A spark is fine, as long as it’s contained.
