The 6 Grand Illusions That Keep Us Enslaved to the Matrix

For a magician to fool his audience his deceit must go unseen, and to this end he crafts an illusion to avert attention from reality. While the audience is entranced, the deceptive act is committed, and for the fool, reality then becomes inexplicably built upon on a lie. That is, until the fool wakes up and recognizes the truth in the fact that he has been duped.

Maintaining the suspension of disbelief in the illusion, however, is often more comforting than acknowledging the magician’s secrets.

We live in a world of illusion. So many of the concerns that occupy the mind and the tasks that fill the calendar arise from planted impulses to become someone or something that we are not. This is no accident. As we are indoctrinated into this authoritarian-corporate-consumer culture that now dominates the human race, we are trained that certain aspects of our society are untouchable truths, and that particular ways of being and behaving are preferred.

Psychopaths disempower people in this way. They blind us with never ceasing barrages of suggestions and absolutes that are aimed at shattering self-confidence and confidence in the future.

Banksy, the revered and elusive revolutionary street artist, once commented:

People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate. They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are The Advertisers and they are laughing at you. – Banksy

Advertising is just the tip of the iceberg. When we look further we see that the overall organization of life is centered around the pursuit of illusions and automatic obedience to institutions and ideas which are not at all what they seem. We are in a very real sense enslaved. Many call this somewhat intangible feeling of oppression ‘the matrix,’ a system of total control that invades the mind, programming….

1. The Illusion of Law, Order and Authority:

For so many of us, following the law is considered a moral obligation, and many of us gladly do so even though corruption, scandal, and wickedness repeatedly demonstrate that the law is plenty flexible for those who have the muscle to bend it. Police brutality and police criminality is rampant in the US, the courts….

2. The Illusion of Prosperity and Happiness:

Adorning oneself in expensive clothes and trinkets, and amassing collections of material possessions that would be the envy of any 19th century monarch has become a substitute for genuine prosperity. Maintaining the illusion of prosperity, though, is critical to our economy as it is, because its foundation is built on consumption, fraud, credit and debt. The banking system itself has been engineered from the top down to create unlimited wealth for some while….

3. The Illusion of Choice and Freedom:

Read between the lines and look at the fine print, we are not free, not by any intelligent standard. Freedom is about having choice, yet in today’s world, choice has come to mean a selection between available options, always from within the confines of a corrupt legal and taxation system and within the boundaries of culturally accepted and enforced norms….

4. The Illusion of Truth:

Truth has become a touchy subject in our culture, and we’ve been programmed to believe that “the” truth comes from the demigods of media, celebrity, and government. If the TV declares something to be true, then we are heretics to believe otherwise. In order to maintain order, the powers-that-be depend upon our acquiescence to their version of the truth. While independent thinkers and journalists continually blow holes in the official versions of reality….

5. The Illusion of Time:

They say that time is money, but this is a lie. Time is your life. Your life is an ever-evolving manifestation of the now. Looking beyond the five-sense world, where we have been trained to move in accordance with the clock and the calendar, we find that the spirit is eternal, and that the each individual soul is part of this eternity….

6. The Illusion of Separateness:

On a strategic level, the tactic of divide and conquer is standard operating procedure for authoritarians and invading armies, but the illusion of separateness runs even deeper than this….

Conclusion:

The grand illusions mentioned here have been staged before us as a campaign to encourage blind acquiescence to the machinations of the matrix. In an attempt to dis-empower us, they demand our conformity and obedience, but we must not forget that all of this is merely an elaborate sales pitch. They can’t sell what we don’t care to buy.

Ben Carson: No exemptions on immunizations

Republican Ben Carson said on Tuesday vaccinations should be mandatory, with no religious or philosophical exemptions, and schools should check to make sure children have received them.

“We already have policies in place at schools that require immunization records and things of that nature,” the conservative neurosurgeon, who is weighing a 2016 run for president, told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “The Lead.”

“A lot of people are put off when they hear the word ‘government force,’ and perhaps there’s a better way to put these things,” Carson said. “But the fact of the matter is, studies have shown us over the course of time that the benefit-to-risk ratio for vaccination is way in the favor of doing it as opposed to not doing it.”

Carson also defended a potential 2016 Republican primary opponent, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who set off controversy when he told CNBC on Monday that he’s heard of cases in which vaccinations are linked to “profound mental disorders,” even as he praised vaccinations generally. Paul said parents should have some choice in whether and when their children receive vaccinations.

Carson said Paul’s comments are “not exactly being portrayed the way he meant it.”

….On Tuesday, Paul clarified his comments.

“I did not say vaccines caused disorders, just that they were temporally related — I did not allege causation. I support vaccines, I receive them myself and I had all of my children vaccinated,” Paul said….

OnlyWay Editor David McElroy comments: Isn’t it strange how a woman has a right to choose what goes on in her body if she wants to abort a child, but we have no right to refuse a vaccine being injected into our bodies? It seems we only have a right to choose what is detrimental to life!

The Church (According To Christ)

From HisHolyChurch.org –

He came preaching the kingdom of God is at hand. To set men free in Spirit and in Truth from the bondage of this world and the next.

This was His good news, the gospel of the Kingdom, that the kingdom of God was at hand to set all men free from the elements of the world so that they may be free souls under God the Father of heaven and earth.

It was a system and a way that was based on faith, hope, and charity and the perfect law of love and liberty. His message was to bring peace and division. It was the salvation of the world.

The kingdom of God is “one form of government”.

How does the Kingdom of God differ from other governments?

What was this thing called the Church?

Was the early Church doing the same things as what we see the modern churches doing?

Jesus appointed a kingdom to His “little flock”, the apostles.

How does that kingdom relate to that early Church?

What was the role or purpose of that Church?

What should it look like and what should it be doing to fulfill its mission?

There are thousands of views and versions as to what the Church is and what it should be doing, but there is only one man who established the Church. The Church was established by Yahushua* the Messiah, a.k.a. Jesus the Christ. Only He can define the purpose and nature of this thing called the Church. It is His Creation, His appointed institution. It is His Holy Church.

Seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness

It is up to each of us to strive, seek, and find out what the Church is according to the intent of the one who established it.

How does it relate to us in our lives and in God’s plan for us?
