“Self-righteousness is the epitome of being wrong.”
Against the Current
Over the last few years, we have been inundated with personal opinions and mainstream media agendas, narratives, politics, virus strains and vaccinations. Yet, we have also been in a universal energetic shift providing us an extraordinary opportunity to align, connect, relate and become one with all. For some, this was a clear choice. For many, it was a defining moment on how tethered to social reality, and distant people are with themselves. The autocratic strategy worked once again. We turned against each other; our ego our sword and our self-righteousness our shield. How clever we are to destroy far more often than we create in our quest for status and validity. Nothing represents our power more than arrogance.
Conceit and deceit are the most toxic elements in contemporary society. We all have duplicity. Those who don’t believe they do have more than most! Events of the last couple years have transpired for the purpose of revealing our concealed deficiencies we all disguise from ourselves and others. We either defend our personal issues or release them and become fulfilled. Recently, I have witnessed family and friends blame, guilt and shame each other to satiate their fears, insecurities and uncertainties regarding the current climate of social reality. Lifetime relations willingly sacrificed in defense of their biased criticism, judgement, opinion and self-righteousness. All to protect their inadequacies, from which we all yearn to be free.
The last two years have not been a time to merely survive, they have been an era to thrive. While we attempted to bring normality to the authoritarian agendas of control, deception, enslavement and manipulation, our greatest fears embedded their influence deeper into our frazzled nerves. No matter how we analyze, believe, interpret or think about the events we have all endured, our understanding of them is often misinterpreted. We feed our senses with biased, agenda-laden information, customized to our desired narrative to debate, demean, discredit and prove our adversaries erroneous. This is the societal psychosis we have enabled with our apathy, denial, negligence, oblivion and self-righteousness.
Before our acumen is developed, we are conditioned to be right at all costs. This is the social standard. We close the avenues of our listening when we stake the lines of our hypocrisy. This applies to others, yet most importantly in our relation to ourselves and the universe. We are blinded by our addiction to the rush of synthetic gratification we receive when we impose our sanctimonies, be they internal or expressed. They are the idioms of our inauthenticity; in other words, “false power.” Society prospers on the adrenaline of superficiality. Those who express empowerment and inspiration are often chastised, exiled and, in extreme circumstances, murdered. Our personal and collective evolution is wagered for our egocentric quest to be right.
“Institutional intelligence is programmed ignorance.”
The Greatest Swindle Ever Sold
Six global corporations own the world’s media sources. It is apparent these outlets broadcast programmed information, thus inventing and promoting narratives to manipulate society’s existence, experience and perception. The mainstream media proliferates corporate, economic, political and social propaganda to execute and maintain its agendas for control, power and profit. To awakened individuals, the endgame is evident. Unfortunately, most of humanity invests in the engineered narratives because we are unable and/or unwilling to accept the truth. The network information we analyze, believe, interpret or think is manufactured delusion. Humanity craves to be right and refuses to admit when they are swindled. How true has this been over the last few years?
One Ego to Rule Them All
Our egos are neurological satellites, constantly receiving and projecting signals within us and ultimately influencing society. We are mired in the duality of our programmed instinct and intellect; therefore, reality exists and is enabled by our collective oblivion. The global authoritarian banks, corporations, governments and other elite organizations are aware of this. They use fear to its fullest efficacy to maintain control, power and wealth over the majority of the world’s population. Their imposed systems of rule amuse, confuse, disempower and enslave society into an elaborate web of deception. Our ego keeps us captive, engaged and tethered to a social simulation we identify, interpret and accept as reality.
The Naked Truth
We are not who we believe ourselves to be. We drift in the darkness of self-subscribed obscurity, terrified to discover, express and live our truth against the scrutiny of a cruel and violent society. Eventually, we all acquiesce to the collective fate of inauthentic belonging, reality and social obligation. Adulthood is a superficial security we “mature” into rife with excuses, failures, inadequacies, oblivion, struggle and surrender. No matter how much we attempt to make something out of the illusion of social reality, we are inevitably burdened with the gravity of our wasted opportunities to create, empower, inspire and transform. The naked truth we all seek to evade is that we live to die, instead of dying to live.
Seeing the Unseen
We are victims, servants of all we do not know that we do not know about ourselves. This statement can be confusing to those unaware of fundamental ontology (the nature of being.) All we know and do not know is often clear. It is what we do not know about what we do not know where we lose our vision, focus, intention and power. It controls us through our personal indoctrination. Institutional education, economics, religion and society programs us to enable our cooperative enslavement. Yet, our personal observation, consciousness, progression and purpose empowers our freedom. These are the essential elements of our being, inspiring our awareness, evolution and transformation.
The last few years have revealed how essential it is to establish and maintain our personal equilibrium. Existing in a social reality built and sustained by conflict, disease, duality, toxicity and war has compromised the core of our being. It is not a surprise how many people do not know who they are, let alone envision, experience and fulfill their destiny. We are multidimensional beings composed of instincts, intellect, emotions and insights. Our existence is created by who we are being. The balance of our body, mind, and heart with our intuition and soul is vital to manifesting the universal energetic shift into our experience. Our attuned equilibrium is an expression of our resonance with the universe.
We have all experienced extreme anxiety, fear, loss and trauma. Many of us are still nursing proverbial wounds that have never fully healed, current ones notwithstanding. Opportunities arise for us when we choose to lay down our fears, failures, histories, obligations, pain, self-righteousness and suffering to embrace everything available to us during this extraordinary era of being. Once we have committed to release all which does not enlighten, inspire and transform us, we can begin to heal. We are all fractured beings drifting upon the ocean of time, seeking an elusive fulfillment. Society imposes it’s will, conditioning us to survive from the outside in. Our universality empowers our soul to thrive from the inside out.

Another Awesome Write IAM! It was so much easier to cut the ties with family and friends that I don’t resonate in the last 2 years. I don’t have others hanging onto my lapel distracting me while I create my new reality.
Indeed! Was the time for that to happen. Amazing what challenges bring out in people. Glad you enjoyed it!
An excellent article – many thanks! In the divisive times of these past two years, I find people have increasingly turned on each other and opted for their chosen social reality (made up of like-minded others who reinforce their beliefs and reactions to outer events). So many deny deeper truths in order to cling to the status quo.
Those who live according to their own drumbeat have often been marginalized, ostracized and condemned by friends, acquaintances and family for refusing to go along with the mainstream narrative. Sovereign individuals seem to have no place in today’s society.
I’m all for keeping the balance you mention (“of our body, mind and heart with our intuition and soul”) but it has become obvious to me that others do not value this balance themselves. The majority live a programmed life, governed by what they see on TV and what is recommended by medical and other “authorities.” They are subservient to external control, are caught in a downward energetic spiral of fear, and have lost the ability to think for themselves. And they care more about what others think of them and how they are perceived than about doing what “feels” right for them.
Maybe for those choosing to expand their own consciousness, a higher purpose of the current divisiveness in society is to FORCE them to live more fully “from the inside out,” as you aptly put it! To trust their inner knowing and act on it, etc.
What do you think?
Absolutely on everything you express. If it isn’t evident to most what is really going on in Social Reality, then denial, indifference and refusal rule the day. Most people are preoccupied with what they “believe” are the necessities of life, and therefore are not interested or as you mentioned do not value awareness, consciousness, creativity, expression, truth and transformation. I would even be as bold to say that most people aren’t even aware of these vital elements of being. Great insights Thelma!
Can I share your comment on my page?
Thanks for your response, Iam. Yes, unfortunately, most are unaware of these vital elements of being, because their focus is largely outer-directed and their lower ego/personality runs their lives.
You may certainly share my comment on your page. Is it here on this site or elsewhere?
It is on this site, I was going to share it elsewhere.
