The Awakening Goes Deeper Than You Think

By Tim Bryant

Guest writer for Wake Up World

Those queued in to the info-sphere of alternative media have long been speculating that humanity is on the cusp of a great awakening, in which the truths of the past that have been buried for centuries by the powers that be will soon rise to the surface and be revealed to the masses. Undoubtedly, this paradigm shift in the collective consciousness of mankind can be directly linked to the free flow of information across the globe, largely correlating with the birth of the Internet; it seems clear that the Internet has catapulted society into an Age of Information. This new era has blessed citizens with enhanced access to superior data that in the past was either unavailable, hidden or obfuscated without the public’s awareness.

In other words, the public has never had a better opportunity to come into contact with the truth.

The problem is that the current awakening within civilization is a direct contradiction to the established system already in place. The old paradigm is simply incompatible with the emerging paradigm, meaning they’re bound to clash and something has to give. Like all established systems, the current power structure does not want to change and relinquish its stranglehold on the throne, which stands to reason why it is so dead set against humanity attaining access to this new world of information. It now knows deep down that adoption of these new transcendent ideas will bring about the demise of the old, and the rising of a new society.

This is incredibly clear right now, as the mainstream media has waged a war against the alternative media, claiming that anything going against the narrative propagated by the establishment is “fake news.” This propaganda campaign is obvious. Rooted in censorship and public relation, there is no attempt to argue points based on facts with fair debate. Instead, mainstream media is choosing to argue its case by appealing to authority, as if authority is the gatekeeper of truth. However, anyone who’s versed in reasoning knows that appealing to authority is a logical fallacy based in sophistry.

(A list of logical fallacies.)

Despite the attempts to censor, discredit, and de-fund the drive for social change, a collective shift in consciousness has already been set in motion. These paradigm shifts can be seen in a variety of forms, such as the ascent of independent media, the rise of the peer-to-peer economy, the return to organic food, the decriminalization of marijuana, the understanding of a world with abundance, and the global consciousness shift towards freedom and decentralization of power.

While these profound changes are real and clearly taking place, the people still find themselves at the crossroads of a major battle that will ultimately define the coming age. In fact, the battle is right here, right now; right in front of our eyes. This unavoidable battle that has been building for some time is the point at which the old and new paradigms clash and fight over the future path of humanity. If a full-scale paradigm shift is to happen, the clash is normal and necessary. However, this new stage of awakening is not going to be the rosy and smooth transition that many were hoping for. In fact, the people are going to be tested like never before.

The Illumination of the Dark

When pondering the idea of humanity awakening, many often hope for a nice peaceful transition and naively believe that everything will be fixed by just thinking positive and refusing to participate in the system. While those tools are deeply important to the cause and shouldn’t be overlooked, they will not eradicate the root cause of the problem. This is something most people don’t want to hear because of the responsibility that comes along with cleaning up the mess. Real substantial change is only possible through a complete illumination of the dark, followed up by direct actions toward confronting it and removing it from power.

To the dismay of many, the darkness that prevails behind the scenes–which controls most of the main pillars of power in society–is extremely dark and disgusting to look at. These dark truths, such as satanic pedophiles in the highest positions of power, the intentional destruction of life on planet Earth through chemical poisoning, and the complete take over of many governments by fascists, are very unsettling to think about, let alone confront head-on.

In fact, it’s perplexing to fathom how humanity could have possibly gotten to this point and if all of this is even real. It’s very scary to see at first, and the prospect of death for revealing the darkness is very real, especially when the institutions that are responsible for protecting society against these evils are directly involved themselves. As the emerging paradigm comes into conflict with the current power structure, the question that’s inevitably going to be asked of humanity iwhether or not the people of love and truth are really ready to put their lives on the line to change the world for the better?

The intention is not to be the bearer of bad news or dampen the spirits of change, but the reality is that the dark forces are currently in control of the world and they’re not going to go quietly into the night. One cannot change a moving train that’s content with its current path by being neutral or thinking positive. Eventually, people must get up out of their seats and go straight to the conductor to confront him.

The current system is immoral, unsustainable, and cannot continue to go on, because if it does, humanity will continue to live in a perpetual state of tyranny for the entirety of its existence. Tyranny becomes a cyclical loop because everyone is stuck looking at each other, too scared to talk about the elephant in the room. Eventually, there comes a time where people will be forced to confront the beast of tyranny if they want real change, which will most likely retaliate back at the them. This should be especially evident now. Many people out there feel the realness of this all right now, so please know that you’re not alone.

The question now is what the people are going to do about it? Ultimately, love is the answer, but what many people need to come to grips with is that love is not always this bubbly feel good emotion of eternal positivity and non-confrontation. The truth is that society is under attack by a dark network behind the scenes and this false form of naïve and passive love is not going to solve it. In fact, that’s not even love at all; it’s fear. Real love is standing boldly for truth, justice, and fighting for what is right no matter the consequences. It’s self-defense and holding people accountable no matter the push back that may ensue.

So what’s stopping the emergence of this true form of love?

It’s time to draw the line.

Looking Into the Face of Fear

Once the knowledge of truth is present, the only thing stopping humanity from putting it into action is fear. The powers that be know that fear is the strongest firearm they have against the people, essentially weaponizing our own chemistry against us. Fear is one of the most potent chemicals in any life form, directly linked to the root of existence, survival. When one’s very survival as a living being is in danger, the ability to think straight and act accordingly becomes severely impaired.


Fear of supporting a family is the reason that people don’t leave their jobs, despite a lack of passion or the forced participation in unethical practices. Fear of social rejection is the reason people don’t discuss and share the inconvenient truths of the world when they’re around their peers. Fear of responsibility is the reason people don’t look and accept the unpleasant realities that keep us trapped within a broken system. Finally, fear of death is the reason those involved on the inside don’t expose the hard evidence as to what’s really going on in high positions of power behind the scenes. Add all those up and you get a docile mass of beings who self-censor themselves to the point of non-confrontation, causing the established system to continuously persist unchallenged.

If there is any hope for change and the emergence of a true awakening, then humanity must break its fear of death above all else, for it is the root of all fear. While first awakening to the realities that previously eluded your awareness is the first step in the process, the deeper layer involves actual actions towards changing the problem in the physical world. Society has deep systemic problems that require intricate chess moves to solve. This is not going to be an easy task and is going to require all hands on deck, but we’re never going to know what’s possible until we get out into the world and start taking collective actions in the face of fear.

I leave you with a quote by Edmund Burke, outlining how it’s imperative for people of truth to come together against the forces of tyranny. Divided we fall, but united we can rise up against the greatest of evils and conquer it. Are you ready for the next step in the awakening?

“Whilst men are linked together, they easily and speedily communicate the alarm of any evil design. They are enabled to fathom it with common counsel, and to oppose it with united strength. Whereas, when they lie dispersed, without concert, order, or discipline, communication is uncertain, counsel difficult, and resistance impracticable. Where men are not acquainted with each other’s principles, nor experienced in each other’s talents, nor at all practised in their mutual habitudes and dispositions by joint efforts in business; no personal confidence, no friendship, no common interest, subsisting among them; it is evidently impossible that they can act a public part with uniformity, perseverance, or efficacy. In a connection, the most inconsiderable man, by adding to the weight of the whole, has his value, and his use; out of it, the greatest talents are wholly unserviceable to the public. No man, who is not inflamed by vain-glory into enthusiasm, can flatter himself that his single, unsupported, desultory, unsystematic endeavours, are of power to defeat the subtle designs and united cabals of ambitious citizens. When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.”
