Is the Matrix real? Is it like the movie? Well, maybe not quite like that. I doubt we're actually living in incubators, hooked up to machines...not yet. For now, however, there are many and various what I call "Systems of Control" which take our freedoms away and limit our opportunities to live fully, with optimal physical, mental, and spiritual health. Following, I'm going to identify these systems and share with you many ways you can begin to remove these from controlling your life. Remember, this is a process, that may ultimately take many years.
--Get your physical and mental health in order, as priority #1, realizing that health is wealth, and eliminating your dependence on non-holistic doctors, drugs, and dangerous invasive medical procedures.
--Reduce and ultimately stop using all pharmaceutical drugs (including vaccines), medicinal or recreational (except natural herbs in their pure state or home-made fermented beverages made w/no chemicals).
--Realize that developing natural immunity to microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, and fungi, is a natural and necessary process that strengthens our resistance to disease and is not to be feared, as long as we are actively maintaining our mental and physical health in a responsible way.
--Realize that as long as you are responsibly maintaining your health, you do not have to live in fear of contracting a serious disease; in fact, that constant fear will only make that outcome more likely by damaging your immune system.
--Eat from the bottom of the food chain (plants), especially fruits and vegetables, as much as possible.
--Eat only as much as you need and maintain a healthy body weight.
--Grow your own food and eliminate your dependence on the processed or chemical-laden Frankenfood grown in poisoned and depleted soil and sold in supermarkets.
--Accumulate natural, healthy food in storage for times of need (jarring, drying, etc.)
--Eat as organic as possible, eliminating the disease-causing influence of Big Agriculture (pesticides, herbicides, hormones, GMOs).
--Reduce pollution by eating whole foods and avoiding processed foods in packaging.
--Add meditation in any of its forms into your life, including releasing stress in your mind and body, thinking more positive, grateful, and compassionate thoughts about yourself and others.
--Spend as much time outdoors in nature as possible, near plants and trees, breathing fresh air, contacting the earth with your body, and sensing nature's refreshing and relaxing beauty.
--Move away from cities which are less healthy where you are easier to control
and live closer to nature.
--Drink only water where you know its source and that has been filtered in some way unless bottled directly at a natural spring in a non-contaminated area from deep in the ground.
--Get at least 7-8 hours of sleep per night, trying to go to bed no later than midnight if possible. Resist the desire to stay up later and deny sleep to engage with media.
--Exercise at least 30 minutes 3-5 times per week doing moderate aerobic and or strength training. Try to have at least 2 strength training sessions per week.
--Treat your body like a temple and your spirit like the true part of God/Divinity that it is.
--Work hard to eliminate your debt, avoid bank loans, and not support banks by paying them interest. Banks support the most evil activities and people on earth.
--Use seller financed, private loans if you must.
--If possible, work as a contractor or in your own business, to reduce paying taxes to a corrupt government and thereby supporting their unhealthy agenda.
--Create sources of sustainable income (sustainable means able to continue for a long time with less effort).
--Accumulate gold and silver in storage or invest in things that have real value, freeing yourself from dependence on fiat currency (paper money).
--Once you obtain optimal health, consider exchanging expensive medical insurance for much more affordable accident insurance.
--Simplify your life in every way, reducing unnecessary expenses, and eliminating and not accumulating everything you don't need.
--Live sustainably by obtaining and using only what you need, recycling and supporting recycled products, and even composting your own waste.
--Minimize the use of plastics.
--Use renewable and sustainable energy (sun/solar, wind, water catchment).
--Reduce your use of non-sustainable, non-renewable energy to a minimum (switch off and unplug lights, fans, motors if not needed, reduce heat and air conditioning use, etc., turning off thermostats when not home).
--Walk, drive, take the bus/train, ride your bike, and at a minimum, drive only a high MPG vehicle...better yet, convert to a sustainable energy vehicle when available and when you can afford it.
--Be aware that most electricity today comes from non-renewable, non-sustainable, unsafe/polluting sources, such as oil, coal, and nuclear energy.
--Boycott voting for a candidate at any level of government in a political election, who belongs to either the Democratic or Republican parties, since those parties are owned and operated themselves as corporations by corporations, banks, the military. Elected officials in these parties function as employees and do not represent your interests (unless you are very wealthy).
--Avoid donating to either of the corporately controlled parties or their candidates. These donations are also not tax deductible, and politicians have no accountability about how to spend your donated monies.
--Support third parties who are progressive in nature, advocating for the transfer of wealth and services back to the 99% of the population who need them.
--Support an election process where voter suppression is illegal and where all votes are made on paper ballots only, counted manually, and in full view of the public.
--Separate yourself from any religion, religious people, or religiosity in your thinking as well as racial or ethnic groups or organizations, that declare themselves to be the ultimate truth, judge the rest of the world as ignorant and evil, and rain hellfire, violence, war, genocide, persecution, prejudice, etc., down on those not in its group.
--Notice the blinding log in your own eye before you judge the splinter in someone else's.
--Treat every living being with great love and respect...because we are ALL part of God/Divinity...animals and plants included!
--Eliminate all unnecessary association with and support for the current military and the police, except in an emergency militia capacity in case of an invasion of your country only or an attempted military takeover by your government.
--Advocate for a great reduction in the military budget, the expenditure on weapons of mass destruction, the ending of wars and invasions of other countries, and the redistribution of monies saved for human services.
--Keep and secure your own weapons and only ever use them to protect yourself and loved ones in self-defense from an imminent attack.
--Stop watching all mainstream corporate media (CNN, MSN, Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS, NYT, HuffPost, WashPost, Vox, etc.) and get your news from independent, alternative sources (print and video, YouTube recommended), being careful to realize that ALL news has a political slant from those who write and distribute it. Trust more those who reveal their slants rather than those who pretend to be neutral. No media source is ever neutral.
--Spend time, but not obsessively, researching from independent non-corporate media what’s really going on in the world politically and how it may affect you.
--Watch media that makes you feel good, positive, happy, friendly, calm, peaceful, motivated, loved, and loving.
--Stop inputting violence into your mind via news and entertainment media (movies, games), that perpetuates violence and violent thinking and feeling.
--Reduce excessive use of social media and rather invest time and energy into building a strong network of friends and colleagues who will support each other in any situation, reducing your dependence on institutions to do so.
I hope these suggestions were helpful. Blessings to ALL good people everywhere!!
