HuManity on Trial – The Trail of Bradley Manning

He is of course on trial for leaking classified military information to the media and faces life in jail. It would appear he is the classic ‘prisoner of conscience’ and has been treated severely for his supposed ‘transgression’ ever since; at times his incarceration would appear to have been nothing less than torture. When you look at the material he leaked, particularly the video collateral murder, displaying shocking disregard for civilian life, many people consider him more a modern day hero, which is why there are worldwide protests. Our system is defunct. It is based on lies and propaganda, held in place by manipulation and control. How can we unravel it and find a more harmonious way?…

Bringing light into the situation

Many people around the world on the internet in the ‘blogosphere’ have been drawing attention for years to the injustice, inequity and just plain ‘defunctness’ (can we add that as a new blogosphere descriptive?) of the system in which we live. The main stream media are of course owned by the military industrial complex that controls society. If you have any doubts about that, simply explore fundamental issues such as chem trail geo-engineering; covert GMO infusion into the food chain; financial manipulation by unjust banking cartels; the rabid exploitation of natural resources to serve just the few; and the wanton destruction of our eco-systems and environment seemingly without concern.

This is all going on under our very noses, marching on relentlessly day by day, mostly suppressed and denied by the mainstream. Let’s be honest about it, because honesty is the only place to begin to change: it is no less than a satanic beast that is devouring humanity and the planet.

We have to be honest. In my view, too many in spiritual circles disregard the reality of life by painting false ‘love and bliss’ rosy hues over what’s truly going on. It will change nothing, except to create an illusionary bubble which might for some short time, distance one’s self from the problem.

No, the challenge of lightworkers everywhere is to bring light into the situation. How do we do this?

Alchemy is the internal transformation of consciousness

The system is sustained by the energy we give to it; by how we support, underpin and especially  deny  what is going on. In that sense, the false reality creators put themselves in the same camp as the asleep and blinkered within society. Just in a different way.

What we really need to do is to explore these issues, talk about them, write about them, peacefully demonstrate against them, but above all,  feel  our reaction to them. How do you get tight about such injustice? Where do you contract down? Where do you become less than what you truly are?

Alchemy is all about internal transformation of consciousness. The world wants to detach you from your inner feelings, either by painting illusionary realites, polluting your inner world through excito-toxins or by luring you into the external through distraction. We can confront this agenda by choosing not to be so distracted. But that is not to look away or deny. It is to look deep into the eyes of the beast, so that your retraction from it can be felt within. Then you have the possibility to soften into the contraction, feel where it is identifying you, unwind the attachment with sense of purpose and then reclaim the lost part of you that was buried there.

The last past is the key: humanity only ever created this control drama because of the nuggets of soul gold, buried within our karma, that we came here to reclaim. Put it this way: lets consider the spiritual principle of abundance. When you connect to the divine, life feels magically abundant. But then the ego owns this feeling and wants to manifest it as material abundance in the outer world. Hence you get the rampant consumerism you see all around you and a desire to exploit life for selfish, distorted desires. Hence we’ve manifested the military industrial complex.

The lost nuggets of soul gold

When you consider life this way, looking for the truth at the core of the problem, digging for the lost nuggets of soul gold, then it has several positive effects:

  • you can’t judge the misdemeanors around you because we are each equally responsible
  • we have the possibility to forgive; forgiveness causes you to soften inside and allow in the light
  • the more you allow in the light, the more you amplify it out into the external world
  • we’re then able to act authentically and with sense of purpose.

As the light flows, so the activation and acceleration of consciousness spreads. What’s needed now in the world, is this kind of spiritual revolution. In my view, it’s the only way the system is truly going to change to something more harmonious; it has to be a reflection of increasing internal harmony.

Something inside is so strong

Every now and again in life, a character will stick his head up above the parapet. Either he does it by choice or it’s just his destiny which can’t be thwarted. As mild mannered as he seems to be, as almost inconsequential as his energy looks on the surface, Bradley Manning is just such a character. He says…

“I wanted to spark a domestic debate about the role of the military and foreign policy in general”. Let us serve his bravery by doing just that.

In a sense now, all of HuManity is on ‘trial’. There’s a choice as to whether we align with the accelerating new consciousness or continue to give in to the old.
In a sense then, we are all Bradley Manning…

About the author

At the age of 40 Chris was involved in a life threatening car crash in which he thought he would certainly die. This precipitated total inner surrender and a rapid reconnection with the conscious life force through all things. He found himself suddenly able to experience and contemplate through multiple dimensions of reality to see the deeper purpose of life itself. He began to remember his true reason for being here.

He explains… “During the crash, time seemed to slow right down and I was guided back through key moments of my life. I was realising that every moment in our lives has but one underlying purpose – to reveal an aspect of truth about ourselves to ourselves. I was beginning to dissolve every belief and value our society had conditioned within me.”

“This was my initial awakening to the magical unifying consciousness of the soul. Over the eight years that followed, I was guided through four other inner ‘Gateways’ of consciousness. I have since come to know the process as the five key expansions on our journey of Enlightenment and ultimate Ascension into multi dimensional living – our divine birthright”.

Prior to the crash, Chris had a rich an varied professional career in industry, in teaching, as an Officer in the Army and finally as a web development entrepreneur before being initiated on his spiritual path. With a Masters Degree in Natural Sciences from Oxford University, participants in the work are finding his integration of grounded scientific understanding and profound spiritual realisation deeply engaging and transformative.
