Building a Better Future
In order to give meaningful suggestions for building a brighter future, we first
need to speak candidly about what's happening in the world at present. Based
on the abundance of reliable, verifiable information provided on WantToKnow.info,
it appears that there are factions within the world's power elite which desire
to gain as much control over the world as possible. Their primary means for
establishing control are through promoting fear, secrecy, and polarization,
and through distracting people from their deeper purpose in life. As these
factions gain ever-greater power and control, our freedoms and liberties are
taken away, often without our even realizing it.
is used as a powerful tool of control by these factions of the global elite.
"The terrorists want to kill us all. You are either for us or against us.
Your job, savings, and retirement are no longer secure. You might be attacked
at any time." All of these messages push us towards fear.
And by encouraging us to focus blame on others such as terrorists and "evil"
leaders, the global power brokers push us away from feeling in control of our
lives and towards the role of powerless victims. The more we slip into fear
and being victims, the easier it is for us to be manipulated.
leads to control through preventing the exposure of hidden agendas, and through
breeding distrust, suspicion, and paranoia in the world. In the name of "national
security," we are told ever more frequently that we
should not know what is happening behind closed doors in government. Yet
we are encouraged to keep vigilant watch over our neighbors, over those who
question the government, and over those who look or act different from us, as
they could secretly be terrorists in sheep's clothing. Rampant secrecy and
suspicion are causing us to lose touch with the common humanity we share with
all around us.
leads to "us vs. them" ways of thinking. Divide and conquer is
a tactic that has been successfully used by the power elite of the world for
centuries. As long as we are focused on blaming and attacking "the
enemy," we are not likely to look for the deeper causes of our polarization.
Controlling factions of the power elite work to keep public and media
attention away from their greatest concerns of power, wealth, and control,
focusing attention instead on "moral" issues which divide the public
into two opposing camps. They then control both sides of the divided public
by assuring that corporate ownership of the media and key candidates from all
political parties support their deeper power and polarization agendas.
A final subtle, yet powerful method of gaining control is to distract people
from their purpose in life. Consider that television, radio, and movies are
filled with ever more greed, violence, and empty sex. Our educational system
increasingly prioritizes passing tests over developing intelligence and creativity.
Unrestrained corporate control of the media
limits what news we receive, and often shapes our decisions and the way
we think. Our attention is being diverted from our deeper purpose in life
to the superficial attractions of sex, consumerism, and money.
As people succumb to fear, secrecy, and polarization, and as they lose touch
with their sense of purpose in life, elements of the global elite are able to
exert ever more control over our world.
a Brighter Future
can we do about all this? Ultimately, it is the collective fear, secrecy, polarization,
and loss of purpose within all of us that has allowed leaders to take power
who would subvert democracy, and who would take away our freedoms and liberties.
By each one of us making a commitment to work on these issues both inside
of ourselves and out in the world—and to inspire others to do the same—we
can change our collective direction and build a solid foundation for a brighter
future. Several actions can help us to take firm steps in that direction.
purpose and intentions for your life. To live full, rich lives in today's
complex world, it's vitally important to give your life clear direction by exploring
what is deepest and most meaningful to you, and by developing life purpose and
intentions based on this. Then choose to live your intentions and follow your
purpose to the best of your ability every day. By choosing to live with clear
direction and focus, life becomes deeper and more meaningful. This then weakens
the seduction of consumerism and media hype which distract us from our purpose,
and allows us to more effectively focus on building a brighter future.
Choose to transform fear into acceptance and love. When we notice ourselves
feeling fear, we can trace the roots of that fear, so that we are able to identify
our core challenges and deal consciously with them. We can open to guidance
from friends, teachers, and spiritual sources in moving from fear to acceptance
and trust. We can transform our fears through welcoming the ever-present love
of God, and the love that lies always deep within our own hearts, and in the
hearts of those around us. In doing this, we begin to recognize fear as an invitation
aware of when you are playing the role of victim, and choose instead to take
personal responsibility for building a brighter future. In blaming others
for our problems, we often avoid taking responsibility for how much we are involved
in creating these problems through the choices we make. Whenever we catch ourselves
playing the role of victim by blaming others (including the power elite) for
everything that's wrong in our lives, we can choose instead to look
inside ourselves, and to explore and take responsibility for our role in
what's happening. By focusing less on blaming others, and more on improving
ourselves, every one of us can make a difference both in our lives and in our
secrecy and encourage openness and transparency. An important way we can
do this is to work together to inform
friends and colleagues about the major cover-ups being hidden from the public.
Then in our personal lives, when we notice ourselves keeping information from
others, we can examine our motives for this secrecy. Are we withholding information
out of our own self-interest, or because this is really what's best for all
involved? And on a deeper level, where are we avoiding being honest within ourselves?
beyond polarization and the focus on "good vs. evil" and "us
vs. them." Consider the possibility that all of us are doing what we
believe to be right based upon our beliefs, circumstances, and upbringing. Each
of us has a place in our heart that
wants only to love and be loved. As we focus less on blaming and judging "them"
and more on supporting
the highest motive in all people—including members of the power elite—we
increasingly come to see that we are all one human family, and that we can choose
to transform our world by working together for the good of all.
And finally, come
together in groups and communities to support each other in making these
positive changes. In these groups and communities, we support each other in
transforming fear into acceptance and love. We exchange information about all
that is being hidden from us. We also share our life purpose and intentions
and encourage each other to live these as fully as we can. And we inspire
each other to take responsibility for our lives and to be the best that we can
be. When we gather in community to support each other in these intentions,
we join in building a growing network of inspiration and empowerment around
suggestions emphasize changing the world by transforming both our own personal
lives and the world around us. Let us do all that we can to stop
destructive behaviors of the global power elite. Yet let us not overly focus
on changing the outside world without first having a solid internal foundation,
lest we fall into blaming others, and into the polarizing "us vs. them"
ways which only further divide us. By reminding ourselves that the most powerful
change starts inside of ourselves, we can develop more balance and strength
to then work towards positive change out in the world.
we change ourselves from the inside out, we send ripples of inspiration and
healing out into the world. By joining together in groups and communities to
support each other in this, those ripples become waves which powerfully help
to build a brighter future for all of us.
