This is the fuel of many a question in alternative news and views arenas. We often have long discussions about what are we to do with the current situation, how are we to do it and how can we wake many more people up to the strange machinations of the current Mainstream Media model??
The simple truth would be on one level, there is a cosy comfort in simply following the line of least resistance. Those who really don't want to know, will not be awakened, regardless of how much the alternative arena screams through the drug-induced soporific nightmare of indentured servitude.
If you were to ask individuals what it was that turned their attention to alternative news and media, there was something specific and personal to them that drew their attention towards what was really going on (health/finance/corruption etc).
The real seekers, the truth finders, all went looking for something to explain what wasn't being explained by mainstream. They had a doubt. They had a query that just wasn't being satisfied by conventional explanations and it ate away at them during the wee small hours of the night. And so for them, the rabbit hole opened... and thus began the realisation that they never really felt like they were part of the glazed-eye collective anyhow.
It's a cold awakening, there is no cheer and warmth of glowing firelight to welcome you to the truth. It's a bitter harsh climate that bites at your fingers for daring to look into the dark. But once you've got there, you really can't go back - even if you could, you really wouldn't want to. And to top it all, the further down that road you get, the less people there are to play with.
So what do you do now? You'll see many aspects of this playing out- the "Truthers" screaming out how all you sheeple should wake the f**k up!... The irony of this megaphone delivery method is such that it only hits all the alternative community anyway and mainly just pisses them off. The unaware will avoid screaming truthers... like.. the ...plague.
It doesn't help anyone and only seeks adds confusion to the very manipulated melee of alternative truths, half-truths and still-learning-about-it-as-it's-developing truths.
As an alternative community, we've become very hot at getting specifics, we want the technical details and we want them now. We become very insistent and if we don't get those details, we start throwing out phrases like, 'Why are they keeping those details from us? Is there something they're trying to hide?'. We're very impatient...
And as we're shaping up into a more discernible and definable community, a divergence is starting to appear. We've always had subsections within the alternative community but now, now there are harder edges, badge-carrying specialities, self elected authorships, baseball card swapping "I'll swap you my TR3B for your MoonBase... - no I don't want the Challenger.. that's so yesterday... " and this frenzied collection of 'I know more discrete bits of information than you do'.
Within our community, we have elevated scientists, academics and whistleblowers. All of these individuals are of course to be applauded for their work, for how they've stepped up and sometimes taken some hits.
But, we're in danger of losing something here.
There is a great potential in bringing alternative news and information into more mainstream settings by going through the bridge of observable data, public information and some cold hard facts.
But - We're starting to put these people on pedestals. We're losing sight of other important things. We're sometimes forgetting our own individual responsibilities here too. We, individually, have a job to do. We don't have to project all this stuff onto these alternative heroes and heroines, this is meant to be a psychospiritual enactment showing us how we can do this for ourselves. They shine their light so that we can observe this, we give ourselves permission and we go on to shine our light at our fullest power too. The tipping point. The hundredth monkey... you know what I'm saying.
They are us, we are them.
But how do we actually do this in real mundane terms?
Trying to 'save' others is a psychospiritual re-enactment of constantly trying to save oneself. Therefore it is a duty of self care to honour yourself, literally save yourself by honouring your own light and your own place amongst the stars. Don't diminish your light by standing in the glare of another bright light.
Stop trying to save others or wake them up, you are only projecting your own anxieties about where you are still sleeping in your own expression of self in this world. Do what makes you happy, do your thing... do your joy, and do that as a service to the world, to the collective, to the evolution of human/earthkind, and in doing so, your own light shines and others observe the joy... their light shines... others see the joy and so on and so on.
Honour the work done by others but don't forget all the other alternative troops on the ground. Pass on the information by all means, we always need that river of constantly updating information - this is a fast flowing field! But honour your own light, tell your own story too. We don't need to keep recycling information that is already in the arena. Honour your friends and own contacts - the feedback you get from them is as important, if not more important than the delayed revelations coming through on any websites, pages or channels. Take command of your own ship. Be your own ambassador. Own your path.
To this end, I post here a video from Jon Rappoport at last year's Secret Space Program and Breakaway Civilisation conference, saying all of that, humorously and informatively. I resonated so strongly with this when I saw it and it has gone on to create great discussions many times.
Thank you for reading this far.
