How Activism Works

“Being the change we want to see in the world” is first and foremost. Our lifestyles, disengagement from the matrix and raising of consciousness are  paramount.

But with that comes activity. We cannot be consciously aware of what’s truly going around us without being prompted and moved to tell others what’s going on and doing something about what’s set before us. Creating a conscious awakening has to take place before anything else.

You never know just what wonderful energy you are helping to release into the fray when those you affect join the awakening.

The Passion for Truth

This expression, “don’t leave one stone uncovered” is a true searcher’s motto. Whether it be forensics, detective work, investigative journalism or literal archeology, leave no stone uncovered or tunnel unexplored. This clearly also applies to the passionate alternative researcher’s methodology. Leave no part of the rabbit hole labyrinth unexplored.

Those who experience a genuine wake up generally go on a personal campaign of truth-finding and have their lives so fundamentally altered they’ll never be the same.

And some run with it! I was one, I went ballistic! How could you not try to scream from the housetops what you’ve found out when it’s so vastly profound and all encompassing? Especially when the very lives of those you love and everything on the planet is at stake!

However, many get muzzled. Mostly by themselves, and worries about what others will think, and the life-stinting fear of rejection or humiliation. The beauty of a true wake up is you no longer care what others think in that regard. In fact, you don’t want to convince others so much as get them looking for truth for themselves.

But there has to be something that gets them started.

It Just Takes One Spark to Ignite a Bonfire

You never know who you are influencing. At all times. Someone may be watching you from a distance, knowing what you’re about to some degree, and is watching your life transform and whether you live up to what you say. Some may be people who argue in your face, even close friends, who appear to reject everything you even start to say. In many cases they may be just testing you while actually thinking a whole lot more about what you’re saying than it appears.

One thing for certain, when the curtain finally comes down they’ll remember then.

Many awakenings are at the end of a mind-blowing email with an eye-opening article or video that finally puts them over the top. Some visit a blog that leads to another that leads another and WHAMMO! It hits home.

How Activism Works - the SparkYou never know!

It may be someone you discretely stop and point out a heavily criss-crossed chemtrail sky to and the scales fall off their eyes, at least about that subject. I’ve seen it happen. A website and a few key words may set them into a massively changed and charged life of activism in all kinds of areas, or at least influence those they are in contact with. And on it goes.

We never know! And it’s wonderful!

If You Don’t Tell Them, Who Will?

What if the person you get the pull to talk to is getting as close as they’ll get to an awakened person at the time you happen across their path? It happens. There are always ways people can find the Truth for themselves, but what if? What if the comment or gesture you would have made was the nudge that would have caused their life to veer in a completely different direction at a point that was just perfectly laid out by Universe?

Sure, there will be other chances, but when?

Especially with a world rushing headlong into a totalitarian clampdown. Then what chance will we have? The only way to respond is to respond in any way we can. I promise, if you get the boat of communicating Truth in motion, the rudder will take effect!

Where’s Waldo?

They’re out there. You and I were out there. Now we’re Here. Home at last in the eternal Now. Others are either still looking, or under a spell. I just want people to know if you look with the eyes of expectancy and yield to that inner voice, you might just help wake up some amazing movers and shakers in addition to the other dear souls that will be ever grateful, each of whom will have a massive ripple effect as well.

How Activism Works - Where_s Wally - CopyWe preach to ourselves a lot in this alternative media, and there’s nothing wrong with it. We get inspired, educated and hence armed for battle. It’s empowering and we need all the juice we each can get during these times. And it will be increasingly so in the days to come.

The wonderful thing is, better than solar or nuclear power, consciousness is infinite and always accessible, and we seem to be in the midst of a power surge. A great time to tune in and help others do the same!

As we learn to tap into the true resources more and more we’re going to be seeing some amazing things in the days to come. When darkness falls, the light of Truth appears to shine all the brighter!

Spontaneous Combustion

The wake up has its own wonderful dynamics which we can’t begin to fully fathom. But we can each do our part to facilitate changes in situations we encounter, or find ways to broadcast the awakening and its loving, enlivening and enlightening vibrations for greater and greater availability.

Seeing someone catch fire with the Truth and the passion of conscious, responsible awareness it engenders is perhaps the most gratifying experience anyone could encounter. But we don’t have to see it to know it’s happening. It IS happening!

I recently had 3 one hour conversations with someone staying in the same accommodations I was staying at and she cannot get enough. She works in one of, if not the biggest defense contractor firm in the world. She’s down to earth and knew something was up, but when we embarked on the journey through the maze of issues with one thing leading to another, there was not one place she couldn’t see how what she had been told “ain’t necessarily so”.   I saw her a few days later as she was on her phone to her daughter, who was at one of our long conversations, telling her daughter to “look up at the sky, the chemtrails are massive today!”

A week ago she never noticed them. Her daughter is a University student and had about 20 files of “alternative information” she’d never heard of before opened up to her while I spoke with her mom.

That’s how it works. Where this dear woman goes, or her daughter goes, with what they’ve now been introduced to, I do not know. But I sure like to imagine.

Keep the awakening rolling. Look for openings and listen to the nudges.

Minesweeping for young and old – it’s a blast! Literally.

“Enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the facade of pretense. It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.”  ~ Osho
