I write this blog to expose the mental traps of the illusion. I know them because I got caught in them myself and found the way out. We’re all innocent victims of an illusion that was created a long time ago. Jesus said that his perpetrators didn’t know what they were doing. He was right. They were playing their role in the illusion.
Conspiracy theorists do the same thing that I do — they expose. But they’re not changing anything because they’re making a big mistake.
Conspiracy theorists focus on action. They generate emotions in their listeners. But they don’t resolve those emotions. So they commit the same error as religion. They make us afraid of the little man behind the curtain by convincing us that he has power. That’s their error. False beliefs have no power.
Exposure is necessary. We must first see a belief before we can let it go. The conspiracy theorist is telling us someone else’s imaginary story. But sadly, they make the story more real. We should treat anyone’s illusory story like we treat a movie, but we don’t. We fight their war or support their programs. We take sides when neither side is worth taking. We go into fear, panic, and terror. We become even more obedient. Conspiracy theory makes us believe the illusion more — not less.
When we believe another person’s illusion, whether it’s a religious, political, or even family illusion, we become blind and stupid. Our intellect loves reasons and explanations. Conspiracy theorists provide seemingly logical reasons for things that feel bad. Religions have offered the same useless service. But neither expose or fix the MENTAL cause of our problems. An illusion, like a movie, can’t harm us unless we believe it. We don’t need any more people who convince us that something false is true.
The first person to unconditionally love their opponent will always win. True trumps false every time. It’s hard to get to unconditional love when you’re being flooded with information about how despicable someone is.
Probably the biggest conspiracy is the evil illuminati. People say there’s a secret group controlling the world. Illusory games are about getting the most people to give their creative power away to a belief system. In good and evil, people give their power to the minions of the old man in the sky. In win-lose, they give it to the illuminati — or some other little-man brotherhood. The religious hate the brotherhoods and vice versa because they’re battling for the same minds.
We give our mind to leaders by believing they have power or authority. We give our mind to them by accepting their beliefs as true. We give our mind to them by giving our money to their programs, fighting their battles, and retelling their history. The false Gods don’t care if we love them or hate them. They only care that we believe them.
Conspiracy and religion both focus on actions — what someone did. To get to the True Self, we must clear beliefs and ignore actions.
Our mind falsely tells us that the effects prove the beliefs are true when they’re actually proof that we believed the system was the truth.
Conspiracy and religion are on opposing sides of the same illusion, that’s why religious people go crazy over conspiracy.
If we play a role in an illusion, we’re an actor. We can only be a true hero when we discover and live from our True Self.
The Illusion of Goodness
As our minds have evolved, people have learned to project both sides of duality outside while standing comfortably in the false center looking like a God. The false center looks balanced and good. Barack Obama is playing this role now. He doesn’t know why the democrats and republicans can’t just get along. Both sides are the reflection of his own split mind; but no one, including Obama, realizes that. He thinks he’s a victim.
George Bush projected his inner terrorist (evil doers) outside of him while he watched 9/11 in a completely nonplussed state. He was the good guy — whole and complete. His shadow was attacking his own people. He wasn’t concerned that people were dying in his illusion. He was watching his illusion play out on the big screen of life, and he was the good guy — the hero and God.
Conspiracy theorists went wild after 9/11 because they wanted to know the cause. The cause was George Bush’s Fundamentalist Christian belief in evil. The conspiracy theorists were too busy looking at actions to see the mental cause. No one said, “Hey let’s drop the belief in terrorism. It’s a lie.” When we think of terrorism, it feels terrible because it’s false. Evil is always a FALSE projection. But George Bush is an authority; and when an authority says “Be afraid,” the sheep obey.
Conspiracy theorists tried to fix the situation. They said, “Hey the enemy is in America.” On the mental level, they were right. George Bush was the leader of America; and he believed in terrorism. So technically the cause was in America. But the cause wasn’t in his physical actions, it was in his mind.
We need to go back to the way our emotions were designed. When we feel emotions, we stop. We look at what we’re thinking or hearing in that moment. We realize it’s false, and we let it go even if everyone in the whole world believes it. Conspiracy theorists expose the hiding place of lies. If we let those lies go, they lose power quickly. If we can unconditionally love the liars, the little men quickly drop off their big high pedestals.
When we let go, we no longer remain caught in the stories of others. We stop playing roles in other people’s illusions. We take back our power as the directors, writers, and actors in our own story; we’re free.
