You probably jumped in your seat just now. Good luck if you're wearing a tupet. If we're honest, though, many of us are in a recurring state of panic.
But there's good news. That's not innate. It's sociological. Society, especially the way western society is constructed, keeps playing the game with us. Let's reformulate that: we are constantly playing that game with each other, convincing ourselves that we are powerless victims. That we have no power, that everyone else knows better. But they're also convinced of the same thing, so who actually is everyone else? Does everyone else include me? Hmm. Why are we convinced that we need something from the outside to save us? A medicine? A machine? An alien? A seminar? The latest book by the Guru of Self Help, at your bookstore for only $ 49.95?
You are not a victim. You can trust you. In fact, you are your most reliable source. The answers lie within you. Even Jesus said that.
And yet we compete with each other like crazy, running to bus stops just to be the first one there, only to stand and wait. We guillotine 90,000 people, because we're pissed off, only to see the revolutionist leaders drink the same champagne in the same castles as the people we overthrew, before the loathed monarchy returns ten years later with a vengeance. We execute 50 million people in a six year long war because someone made us lose the first war.
And for what? To win? What did we win? A trophy? A squeaky dog?
Back in 2012, prompted by false reports by the Mayan calendar prophecy of the apocalypse, a stream of speculations exploded across the world that all pointed toward one thing: the world would end, presumably, probably hit by a cataclysmic asteroid, a monumental shift of the Earth's core, solar winds, attacks by aliens, or all of the above. But, guess what? We're still here.
A somewhat prominent YouTuber published a video that reached its expected 18 million views, in a time when most people have trouble attracting even 300, if they don't buy the likes, that is. He listed at least 10 arguments that the world, indeed, would end in a super big kaboom in 2012. God bless Roland Emmerich for his amazing cinematographical genius, but his film with the year's date was not only a box office smash, it also convinced millions of people that, like Kevin Spacey, they would go down the tubes.
I wrote a comment in the said YouTuber's chat section pointing out that he might be wrong. He answered me that I was being irresponsible and was supported by a fellow viewer that I was full of it.
Why were they angry at me for saying the fears were unfounded? They wanted God to descend from the Heavens and point his finger at the sky and exclaim: "Thou art safe. The world will not end!"
Or were they secretly connecting to their eternal selves and hoping to start again in a new life?
In 2016, after the world had realized we were still around, I found a 20-year plan circling the web that claimed that 9/11, the Arabian Spring and ISIS were part of a Islamic conspiracy to take over the world. There was only a problem with this theory. The Arabian Spring was a spontaneous event prompted by an apolitical and religiously neutral fruit seller, whose self burning was due to stately mobbing. The plan to have an Islamic world by 2020 included reviewed plans of rival groups, so it was as credible as an alien tapdancing on Capitol Hill.
Wikipedia lists a total of 174 official doomsday predictions since the year 66 A.D. from such varied sources as the Catholic Church, Jehova's Witnesses, Christopher Columbus, Jim Jones, Ho-Chi Minh and Charles Manson. Let's not start including conspiracy theories. We'll be here all night.
The current obligatory vaccination scare is right now turning the German political landscape into a cold war. The Minister of Health Jens Spahn wants to force every German to vaccinate against measles or pay a $ 2500 fine, against their will, if needs be. The problem is that there are no singular measles vaccinations, only a threefold vaccine. Other sicknesses are worse, so the whole thing is really a political farce. Maybe his aunt died of measles and now we're paying for it. The only measles fatality this year was caused by a vaccine. Up until now vaccinations were a free individual decision. Forced vaccinations was against the law. So there is fear on both sides. People from the vaccine opposition are declining all attempts of hope by calling them fake news and people from the pro-vaccine-front want to eradicate a sickness that isn't really a threat at all. Fear fuels both sides and both sides hate each other. Cable TV is mainstream and dependant on mainstream success. Naturally, no contra-vaccine event will be aired objectively.
All of this leads up to one problem: people don't trust themselves.
The name of this article is "Light vs. Dark - You Decide". But what is it you decide? To love or fear. Does that matter. Oh, yes. It determines everything.
Why can you trust yourself?
Well, before we move on, let's look at this from the quantum angle.
10 Reasons Why Quantum Physics is a Part of Who You Are:
1. Your body is 99,9 % empty space.
2. The remaining 0,1 % are atoms with vibrating particles inside (electrons, neutrons and protons). Atoms are fields, not things. Accordingly, we are fields.
3. Everything in the universe buzzes and vibrates: you, me, the chair you sit on, the street, your house, your table, your city. What holds it together is not the thing itself, but the field around it.
4. This constant buzz works in different frequencies. When we buzz in the same frequency, we call that love or friendship. More spiritually enlightened vibrations buzz faster.
5. Particles are influenced by the viewer. They react and move where the viewer directs them. They form waves, can be in two places at once and are connected.
6. Every cell in your body is a 1,4 Volt battery. You have 500 trillion cells which makes you an electrical power plant. This energy is self healing.
7. Most scientists and physicists agree that this conscious vibrating energy is the only red thread that binds the universe together.
8. This energy is eternal. It flows through everything. It creates love and friendship. We think of someone and that someone calls us. We think of a song and we hear that song on the radio. We believe something and that something comes true. It's all the conscious energy. All empty space is filled with energetic particles, meons and proved transformable energy that works through the ether. Deceased souls are simply energies that left their bodies.
9. God is inside that energy called love. He works through us and is above and beyond religions. This energy was never born and will never die. It was there before the big bang and goes beyond the end of the universe. We are creators, like our God. Our love creates our children. Sex is not a sin. We should respect it and use it well and not turn it into a joke. Don't blackmark consentual happy sex. It is prolonged love. See a kissing couple? Think: "Yes, go ahead. Love each other. Be faithful. Make happy babies."
10. Your heart has synaptic nurites. It can think. So it has more reliable intuition than your brain. Quoting Niels Bohr, the pioneer of modern quantum physics: "If quantum physics doesn't profoundly shock you, you haven't really understood it yet."
If you've understood what I just said, you will understand that hope and faith is everything. Yes, God exists. He was there before the big bang and is there after the end of the universe. But he is also a part of your feelings, your energy.
Even if you want to take this from a completely dry neutral level, you can isolate it and see how you choose good and bad by choosing love or fear.
Science has determined that the brain processes and transforms information at its best in moments of calm. We react in a more organized way when we are calm. Calm also gives us a feeling of satisfaction which leads to love. In the spiral staircase of emotions, love medically heals you. Where do you find love? Within yourself. If you think you find love without yourself, even when you fall into it, you are wrong. Someone returns your love because you give yours to them and so you are the catalyst. If you believe in vibrations, you are both on the same wavelength. We speak of chemistry. It's frequencies, all right, but chemistry will do.
So love from within you is the answer. You find it, you are it. It determines what you do. If you are honest with yourself, the feeling you have (even no feeling is a feeling) will determine your choice. Say a buddy calls you and wants to catch a movie. You say no, because you're lazy and also angry because of something someone did to you. You are basically pissed off, so you don't go. But then you get a job offer via mail that makes you happy, so you change your mind and go anyway. At the movies, you meet your future wife. So, yes, your feeling does determine what you do, even if you are a macho who claims you have no feelings. But being macho is a feeling, too. If you realize that everything you choose is based on a gut feeling, you are on your way. That gut feeling is your identity, your soul, your spirit, not your brain. Problems are not psychological. They're emotional. Spiritual. Teach your spirit to love and be calm all the time and you will be happy and successful so fast you won't know what hit you. That's light. Choose it.
Scientist John Wheeler said: "Reality is made of information which is created by observation made by something conscious."
But consciousness is by its nature subjective to what we've learned. We say something is what it is because we've learned it to be that way. How you see stuff will determine what you experience, just like when you felt good about the job offer and went to the flick and met your wife.
You can teach yourself to feel good all the time by thinking positive, which will change your life. Take a hint, though. Make sure your choices are based on everyone's benefit. That will make you more popular.
Like reality changes according to your choice of love, darkness, or fear, will, as well. Hitler was afraid of Jews, so he killed them. Jack the Ripper was afraid of his domineering mom, who had been a part time hooker, he ended up blaming all her abuse on her prostitute past, so he killed all the hookers in Whitechapel he could find. If we believe Swedish journalist Christer Holmgren, Jack the Ripper was Charles Allen Lechmere, who killed the women on his nightly way to work, out of fear.
Had he found love and a calm place to go and think, maybe all of that would not have happened.
You cannot avoid pain and fear, i.e. darkness, but you can choose how you deal with it. You can heal fear with writing lists of things you love, movies you like, food you like, making people feel good, seeking friendly people. It will ultimately lead you to love, i.e light.
So, yes, light and dark is your choice. If reality is dependent on consciousness the way scientists now presume, you have a much bigger power than you think. You can literally move mountains, if reality is determined by consciousness.
If your conscious energy is never lost, you've been here before and the fact that you are reading this is you waking up inside the matrix, whatever that means.
Oh, and by the way, the asteroid scare right now is Nasa's reality test just in case. We're safe.
You decide how your life turns out. So make it a good one.
