Staying Sane in an Insane World

July 11, 2021

psyche-war.jpegThe mind is a prison where the soul is tortured by thoughts. (Our feelings correspond to our thoughts. If we don't manage our thoughts, they will.)

If this planet weren't run by Satanists, we would be praising and thanking God, and discerning His Plan, instead of chasing money and sex. God is Consciousness and we are mostly unconscious. 

Lately, the Satanists have launched a sexist and racist attack on white men implying that all whites males are crazed mass killers. Since when do the actions of a handful of misfits, groomed by the Deep State, condemn hundreds of millions of people? Are all Jews to blame for the actions of the Rothschilds? 

The political and cultural climate is toxic because we are under constant occult attack. It's easy to have negative thoughts. Negative thoughts lead to depression. This actually may be their plan. Depress us.

We can't let them get to us.  Our minds must be a blank canvas. Our palette must contain the Colors of God Consciousness: Love, Beauty, Truth, Goodness, and Bliss.  We create our own reality. If we want a better world we must first create one for ourselves.
Stay focused on the present moment. Concentrate on each task in the present. 

Disclaimer -  Is it not hypocritical to write this and yet provide a largely depressing Gab feed about the latest developments in the world? While regaining our own soul we need to also fight the good fight, which in this case is to provide an intellectual and spiritual focal point.  

Thinking is an Addiction (Updated from Jan 26, 2016)
by Henry Makow Ph.D.

When I say thinking is an addiction, I'm NOT referring to thoughts based on independent observation and analysis, or intuition or inspiration.

I'm referring to the compulsive stream of fear, worry, judgment, chatter, and trivia that usually fills our minds. Most stress is mentally-induced.

I used to depend on the mass media for my image of reality. As a result, I was dysfunctional. 

Like sickness, war and poverty, dysfunction is systemic (inherent in society.) They are profitable.  
wallace.jpgIlluminati member Harold Rosenthal spelled it out: 
"We have converted the people to our philosophy of getting and acquiring so that they will never be satisfied. A dissatisfied people are pawns in our game of world conquest. They are always seeking and never able to find satisfaction. The very moment they seek happiness outside themselves, they become our willing servants."  Harold Rosenthal The Hidden Tyranny


 As Rosenthal says, our minds have been programmed to "be dissatisfied" and want more. The programming is in music, movies, TV and education.  There must always be striving, conflict. 

Tell a man he is a chicken, and he struts around and clucks and even tries to lay an egg. Thus, men go to war and die "to defend freedom." Look at the Vietnam War for example. "If Vietnam goes Communist," they told us,"all South East Asia will fall." Didn't happen. Look at Vietnam today. Was that war necessary? Were Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya or Syria? Necessary only for profit and to impose the NWO.

The Illuminati fabricate reality. Consider the JFK-RFK-MLK assassinations, 9-11, Boston Marathon and Sandy Hook. They determine reality simply by lying. They created ISIS and are responsible for war crimes as bad as any in history.

They program our minds to adopt self-destructive behavior. 


Teachers can no longer refer to children as "boys" and "girls." Children are encouraged to change their gender and experiment with homosexuality. Women are taught that being a wife and mother is "oppressive" and promiscuity is "empowering."  Men are taught to seek sex and not love. Society is governed by depravity & nonsense.

The mind unmoored from the Moral Order, (i.e. the soul) is malleable indeed!  By soul, I am including intuition and instinct. 

We experience our programming rather than reality.  For example, Hollywood presents romance and sex as panaceas and we actually experience them as such...until the illusion dispels like a morning fog. The Cabalists love hypnotizing us with their "magic."

By themselves, our minds have no anchor in truth. The mental world is a house-of-mirrors.  


The mind and the consciousness (soul) are two competing sources of identity. We have been programmed to identify entirely with the thought world and deny the existence of the soul.

We need to experience ourselves as consciousness.  Consciousness witnesses thought. Empty the mind of thought and what's left is the real you.

Religion teaches that man's true character is spiritual. Our soul is our hotline to God. We need to shift from inhabiting thought to inhabiting spirit. Turn off thought like a light switch.
As we shift our center from mind to spirit, many "desires" fade away. They were mental in character.

The poet Henry More (1614-1687) wrote:

"When the inordinate desire after knowledge of things was allayed in me,  and I aspired after nothing but purity and simplicity of mind, there shone in me daily a greater assurance than ever I could have expected, even of those things which before I had the greatest desire to know." 

Like penguins stranded on an ice floe, mankind is an ape colony on a speck in the universe.  No one really understands what we're doing here. Predator apes are trying to monopolize power and wealth. 

We are here to realize the Creator's purpose. God wants to know Himself through us, (his creation knowing Him.) But collective salvation is NOT possible without personal salvation. 

Most of us can achieve personal salvation. 

----NOTE  Christians complain that this is Raga Yoga and New Age. This shows how little they understand Jesus' message.

Matthew 6:26-34 New King James Version (NKJV) 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one [a]cubit to his [b]stature?

28 "So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not [c]arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

31 "Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Thoreau echoed this wisdom:

" I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavour. It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts."

Eckhart Tolle:

"Can't stop thinking; can't stop drinking; can't stop smoking; can't stop eating; thinking is a greater addiction than any of these."

I recommend the YouTubes by Eckhart Tolle below.  "Find your identity in the present moment," Tolle says. He is referring to pure consciousness. With so many people spinning webs of crazy thought, we need an anchor in spiritual reality.

First Comment from Tony B-

"The Elite rules by controlling money AND the mind," says Henrique (below) 

Why is it so hard for people to understand that if you own the "money," you can make or break anyone, anywhere, plus you will always have tons of cash to easily accomplish almost any agenda you wish, including mind control.

The key to the devil's control of the world today is the control of the money, the daily economic life of survival for every person not privileged by the money creators to be at leisure; everything else is a side issue.  "Wage slavery" is the usual description of the control but it really goes beyond that into every facet of daily life.  Few have the stamina to both bring home the means to live and then to fight every evil in one's "own time."  Man must have his rest, but men who don't have to labor. or are paid well to labor at the money cabal's pleasure, not God's, can devote all their working time to those evil agendas such as mind control while their designated victims have their "nose to the grindstone" attempting to make ends meet while forced to use a criminal exchange medium that is forever draining them via falsely concocted debt and phony usury.

Henrique writes:

I find this type of article annoying, not so much because of the content, but because it concedes territory to New-Agers and hipsters. The crucial point is that people think they ARE their minds, which is an atrocious mistake. "There's something feminine in reason", said Schopenhauer. The mind is a computer, or a horse, that you must ride with your spirit. You are your spirit - something pre-verbal, a fire that burns inside you. The mind is like an impersonal computer that deals in symbols ( words ) and translates your base desires in them. 

If you instead of being you, identifies with the mind, you become the "modern man". The pussy that goes out with miniskirts to protest rapes, that competes incessantly to be the Champion of Political Correctness, fighting against the new oppression and "cause" his mind ( "himself" ) was able to codify and make communicable. Your spirit must ride your mind, or you're basically lost - I believe this is a message the Catholic Church used to try to convey to the masses, albeit in an infantile, oversimplified way - not today of course, with Bergoglio-Soros at the helm.

In a way, the mind is like that serpent in the depths of the sea, always agitated, unsatisfiable, restless. If it rules you - if you give it total power - you're lost. I don't think most Social Justice Warriors actually lead very happy lives. Being led around by your conscience equals being dominated by a neurotic woman.

The Elite rules by controlling money AND the mind.

Comments for "Staying Sane in an Insane World"

Al Thompson said (July 11, 2021):

I found this piece when in prison and it has helped me a lot.


by Tertullian

Al Thompson said (July 11, 2021):

Once I completely understood that the governments are communist and founded on the principles of Satan, I am getting better at keeping my mind safe by ignoring the nonsense. When I find my mind drifting into the cesspool of politics and other issues, I simply switch my mind to things that exist in the natural order. This works every time and my life is improving. A Satanic organization has no authority to do anything. All men are responsible for themselves to remain within the natural order. When people go outside of it, they do the harm to themselves and others around them.

BH said (August 18, 2019):

The enemy is direct energy weapons, and media brainwashing.

'if you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice,' for evil. In matters of the soul, one must not hedge. If for no other reason than
the cultivation of the soul is a life long endeavor. There is no time to hedge. If you are hedging, you've already succumbed to evil. The soul
is one area in which one must not be cagey. But, it's never too late, as late is better than never.

The Rush quote from Free Will above. Even the songwriter wasn't sure here or so it appears as the inner sleeve lyrics read:

'if you choose not to decide, you can not have made a choice.' :)

Begging the question, proposing the ponder, which is it?

One must not mistake falling for evil, for standing for something.

One must not do random, thinking they are doing something random, on a whim, when they are doing for evil, these placed, preconceived notions
mentioned above.

Being in control of one's own mind in this way - seriously considering it is a novel proposition to most. Seems too difficult. This too is because of brainwashing, and direct energy weapons, the above mentioned focal point of attack.

Barry (UK) said (August 12, 2019):

I recall many years ago listening to NWO researcher Alan Watt. He said, (paraphrasing) one of the greatest difficulties people will have in the future is holding onto to their sanity.” You can see it happening, particularly with the younger generation who seem rudderless and have no firm ideas on right or wrong. Of course this is part of the elites divide and rule strategy. Divided people with no shared understanding are helpless against a powerful elite who have a plan. A passage in the Protocols sums it up perfectly. “We have fooled, bemused and corrupted the youth of the Goyim by rearing them in principles and theories which are known by us to be false, although it is they that have been inculcated.” When you have control of the movie industry, television, the press and the education system, driving people crazy is a simple thing to do.

David said (August 11, 2019):

I can see how the elites have convinced themselves they are capable of replacing God as the supreme beings in the universe: they know our whereabouts via cellphone GPS (omnipresent); they know our innermost thoughts posted via email, Instagram, Reddit and Twitter (omniscient); they stage false-flag terror attacks and murder their enemies in full public view, yet never face justice in the courts of law (omnipotent). Their only weakness is they're mortal like the rest of us, but with their unimaginable concentration of wealth, I'm sure they're working on a solution for that.

Andy said (August 11, 2019):

The condition of being you describe is marked by Danish philosopher by Søren Kierkegaard in his book 'The sickness unto death', which I would recommend to you. It is the soul in a state of acute self-awareness of self, but with an absence of God;

It is the preparatory state of soul for repentance of sins and surrender of the free-will to God in acceptance of Christ as Saviour, as is necessary for salvation;

Mark 8:35

"For whosoever will save his life, shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel, shall save it."

Luke 13:5

"No, I say to you; but except you do penance, you shall all likewise perish."

What is needed is not Eckhart Tolle, but Christ and obedience to His Gospel and persistent prayer - classically the 'Our Father';

Matthew 6:9-15

'Thus, therefore, shall you pray Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our supersubstantial bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation. But deliver us from evil. Amen. For if you will forgive men their offences, your heavenly Father will forgive you also your offences. But if you will not forgive men, neither will your Father forgive you your offences.'

Luke 11:9-10 (persistent prayer)

'And I say to you, Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find: knock, and it shall be opened to you. For every one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh, findeth; and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.'

Critique of Eckhart Tolle;

Mike B said (August 11, 2019):

"Disclaimer - Is it not hypocritical to write this and yet provide a largely depressing Twitter feed about the latest developments in the world? While regaining our own soul we need to also fight the good fight, which in this case is to provide an intellectual and spiritual focal point".

No, it is not (hypocritical).

It can be depressing (to provide a large twitter feed to readers) if one allows themselves to be this way.

It may at the moment seem like "whatso profits a man to gain the whole world only to lose his soul"?
Only at the moment, it may seem this way. After consumption (of the "news") comes thought. Then comes respite. Then knowing or wisdom - "an intellectual and spiritual focal point".

My prayers remain with you.

May the Creator continue to shield protect and bless you.

JG said (August 11, 2019):

Why wait any longer for the world to begin
You can have your cake and eat it too--
Bob Dylan 1969

If you are constantly living in a state of anticipation you are letting life pass you by. We tell ourselves that once we get the things we want, then our dreams can be fulfilled. That one never seems to work too well because you are not living life spontaneously. It's as if you're an investor trying to predict and control the future. Your dreams then turn to nightmares because there is always future events in your life that you didn't predict that alter your course. Only God is in control of the future.
You are happiest as a child because you appreciate everything you have been blessed with. An ungrateful person is always a miserable person.

As we get older our sinful carnal minds take over and we experience envy, disobedience, and unhappiness. Growing up is conquering the sinful thoughts and acts we experienced in the juvenile period of our youth. If we succeed we then are no longer slaves to our once worldly sins and desires.

Once we accomplish this we then become as children again.

As Jesus tells us in the Book of Mathew 18:3
"Verily I say unto you, except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven". (KJV)

There is no happiness greater than that which exists in the kingdom of heaven.

Wolfgang said (August 11, 2019):

I appreciate your essays very much. I´m a german-born 1941 . after all bad history and my life I came to the conclusion that there can be only one unifying power ruling all dimensions of all universes in case there is anything like that power may it be called god or something else . and it interferes in no way into the personal affairs of the human race .it can only be an unifying power which don´t accepts any separations . therefore my conclusion: YHVH and ALLAH can only be two different names of thousands of the devil. the devil is the master of lies and separation . in him there is no unity no peace only struggle and hate. he is master of hell on earth. there is no other hell !

Peter R said (August 11, 2019):

No, our minds must not be a blank canvas. What kind of life is that? We must have a revolution, throw the bastards out, and fix all the evils they have given us for so long. Else, we will continue living under them and can never be truly civilized.

Imran said (December 25, 2018):

The original Christian view is that the mind gets its information from the five senses. Plus its biology. The soul gives some supernatural abilities to mankind. The last point about the soul is questionable and it cannot be proven scientifically. It is a personal belief that one can adopt if they wish. I lean towards it myself.

Morals with people and societies change through the five senses. The Globalist with their cultural power have been trying to get rid of some things and introducing others ie transgender, homosexuality to reduce the population. Overall the effect is generally harmful to any pagan or saint. However, they seem to want to modify society not self destruct mankind. It would not be in their interests to do that...though the schemes could foolishly end up doing that anyhow.

God from the original Jewish/Christian (Apostle) point of view has a certain standard that He wants only those with the New Birth to follow. He has been selective of choosing his saints from the mortal flock down the centuries. Then He gives them inputs from Himself on how to please Him. This is not given to the pagan stock for He chose not to since roughly the time of Abraham. This is why the patriarch was told to leave Ur.

So my belief: Five Senses, Biology, Soul (I don't think I will ever know what it is all about 100%, but the article does provide good ideas), and God; who provides supernatural inputs, but only for saints who are elected, but not all of mankind, unless of course He feels that things need to move in a certain hardening Pharaoh's heart.

Merry Christmas to all the readers and to you Mr. Makow.

CV said (December 22, 2018):

I was recently exposed to the concept of Heartfull meditation, where a practitioner mentioned we have three seats of intelligence: our gut, our hearts, and our minds. So if you declutter your mind, the gut and heart are left, to be cultivated. We all know the saying “go with your gut.” They say the heart is the home of intuition, integrity, conscience, morals, and love.

Have you noticed we’ve all become eggheads? Some of us remember when the PC was first introduced, it had been championed by awkward nerds who had no sense of direction, no life, and no social skill— people we actually used to mock, who spent their life’s energy interacting with machines. Now we are all like that. Gotta go back in time, cut back on computer time, turn off our phones.

Vincent said (December 22, 2018):

So how do we reconcile these scriptures with the following from Ezekiel 9 below is a question I would like to propose to Henry or others for comment. Who is grieving and lamenting over all the detestable things happening throughout the world today? So often I have found Christians today to be the most distracted of all people with no concern for anything apart from a ticket out of here on the presumption of a false rapture when things get too hot. This observation is not to judge others, but to glean the thoughts of others. Are we to spend our days grieving and lamenting these terrible things when we allow our minds to think of all the abominations and atrocities taking place today, and then allow our minds to cast those thoughts off?

My own thoughts are Jesus said my kingdom is not of this world. All creation is groaning terribly. We are rapidly moving into greater enslavement, sin and deception. I lament and grieve for the pain being inflicted on the innocent. The blind guides leading the blind. To say that makes me an intercessor to have such thoughts and feelings, discounts your own accountability to grieve and lament today. This is not directed at Henry who's website I appreciate and have gained much insight from.

Ezekiel 9

He answered me, “The sin of the people of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great; the land is full of bloodshed and the city is full of injustice. They say, ‘The Lord has forsaken the land; the Lord does not see.’ 10 So I will not look on them with pity or spare them, but I will bring down on their own heads what they have done.”

JJ said (December 22, 2018):

would disagree with the first half of the article. The most materialistic people I know are people on welfare who will always say, "I don't put money first." Yes they do put money first, they put my tax-payers money ahead of their money and certainly don't mind robbing me so that they can live comfortably. People need to take care of themselves. That should be first priority. The most materialistic people are those on welfare who love to say, "My taxes are paying for this," when most of them never worked a day in their lives.

G said (December 22, 2018):

he thought that kept coming to my mind after reading your article today, Henry, is: "Ye shall know them by their fruits." Our lives reflect out thoughts and if our lives are bearing good fruit it may mean we have our thoughts in order. But what is "good fruit?"

To me it is love and health. and a carrying of one's own life, a participation with existence to make life work, not just livable but enjoyable. Ah, but today there are challenges because we have evil at the helm, tearing down our dreams, stealing our money, tampering
with our freedom. So everyday-thought moves to the defensive: Okay, what do I have to do to survive?

They are in the way of our thought processes because they invade it with concerns not natural to evolution, but rather like some side-trip to Hell where we have to fend off all manner of intrusion and infringement. So, we are, of course, in the fight of our lives. I guess it will take a super consciousness to say, "I am captain of my soul and will not let my mind be dirtied by these cruel challenges they have presented to me." There is some resolve in that.

Thinking is a vehicle. It can take us to solution and peace, or it can beat us into defeat. To know the mind is to see the soul in the present. What is it saying? Each will hear a different response.

Henrique shines in his comment, especially here:

"Your spirit must ride your mind, or you're basically lost."

Yes, before mind, we are spirit. Just my belief.


WW said (May 22, 2018):

I just finished reading "Getting Out Of The Matrix". As always what you write is very thought provoking and memorable, not only in regards to what you have to say, but also how you express your thoughts in words. You truly are a wordsmith! I don't think that I will ever forget your sentence or memorable images your sentence "Like penguins stranded on an ice flow, mankind is an ape colony on a speck in the universe" bring to mind, nor the nihilistic and hopeless sentiment the sentence conveys. That being true, may I suggest that "No one really understands what we're doing here." would indeed be true, if and only if, we did not have God's self-disclosure, and His stated purpose for creating the world and us, found in the Bible. A great article to read for an excellent Biblical, Christian exposition on this important topic is John Piper's "Why Did God Create The World".

***Why Did God Create The World?*** - John Piper

Mathew B said (May 22, 2018):

have to agree with Henrique on this one, in that I associate these types of articles with New Ageism, which is a fruit of our satanic rulers.

The problem with authors such as Tolle is that they preach naturalism. They deny the cross and preach salvation free of dogma.

What do the 10 Commandments mean to Tolle? How about the consequences of denying the 10 Commandments e.g. broken families and sexual addiction?

How is the Power of Now going to save us from sin? What is sin according to a man like Tolle? Is it relative to the 'individual'? What universal laws is man bound by according to Tolle? Or do he just need to focus on the 'now' and everything will magically fall into place?

I'll stick to praying my daily Rosaries and reading Sacred Scripture, etc.

SL said (September 26, 2017):

(Translated from French)

Apparently, given the comments that you have not been understood. It's a shame but understandable.

American culture (which even Americans of good will hardly escape) is in itself a great fiction that originated in the false idealist philosophy (Descartes, Kant et al) that radically denies - against the evidence - the possibility for man to know something (ie partially and imperfectly) of reality.

The human soul is not ectoplasm but according to Aristotle (hylomorphism) and St. Thomas Aquinas, the "form" of the human compound, the organizing principle of matter premium, which itself n ' is not to be real. The soul is immortal because not divisible puisqu'immatérielle. She survives death is the dissolution of the human compound.

In its majority, the "white" America is Protestant, so more or less Kantist. He is seen here once again in these sad comments - dear friend, forgive me emphasize - that Protestantism (in general) is not a kind of "Christianity", but against-religion and against -Philosophy of authentic Christianity, called "Catholicism" since the sixteenth century. Despite the misleading vocabulary, there are opposition contradiction between the two.

The existence and uniqueness of God as being real and not simply thinking or "being of reason" rationally demonstrated in many ways that deny Protestantism. Here begin the drift and ambiguity. This is of course sought.

George said (September 26, 2017):

Great article! The Tao te Ching says that the masses must always have their minds filled, like children, to pacify them.

William said (September 26, 2017):

The solution is to disconnect from the groupthink mentality that dominates society. Start questioning things, even if it's just questioning them in your own mind. The notion of this is scary to most since it means potentially being shunned by the herd, but I'd rather be alone than in bad company.

Pat said (September 26, 2017):

I don't think emptying the mind does anything for you in the long run. It's kind of selfish really. Probably the happiest people are those who are busy doing things for others. I am thinking of a young nun who works on an Indian reserve. She's brimming over with love. She was married - had kids.She, her husband and her kids are determined to help on the reserves. At the moment, she's looking after her parents and working on another reserve. You should see her. She's radiant.

Ava said (January 27, 2016):

I read your newsletter daily. But I find this article somewhat misleading.

The problem, and how the world got into the grips of the cabal, is by NOT thinking.

Blind acceptance, without applying one's own intelligence and observations, is not the same thing as "thinking". Who could believe that an airplane built out of aluminum could fly straight through a skyscraper made of steel? The same goes for how the towers fell. An airplane would not cause them to fall like a controlled demolition. If one stopped to THINK about it, they would question the official story. As indeed many physicists and aeronautical engineers have done and written copiously about it.

People have been programmed to trust in authority -- government, politicians, news readers, published books and newspaper articles. Plus, it seems to be part and parcel of adult human nature: look at The Emperor's New Clothes fairy tale: it took the perception of a child to disclose the truth. Adult humans tend to a herd instinct. Hence the term "sheeple" or blind followers.

We got into the mess we're in because people have not been thinking!

They have also been deprived of information. Important information that enables one to think and draw conclusions contrary to what's doled out by the media and government is deliberately withheld, so that unless one spends what requires a great deal of time and effort doing "off road" research people do not have the information to ascertain false flags, and downright lies. It becomes easy to see through the lies and propaganda once people are alerted to a few simple facts about the true nature of those in charge. That's why this information is hidden.

How do you change the populace so that they start disbelieving rather than believing hook line and sinker everything they are told? They need to be wised up. But children are a whole other matter: they are brainwashed before their critical thinking skills develop.
Public Relations -- a euphemism for propaganda -- is one of the greatest evils of the 20th century because it is the art of deception and manipulation. The PR bible, "Propaganda" was written by Sigmund Freud's nephew. The psychopaths running the world have all the best psychological tools at their disposal to mesmerize and program humanity, and they have used them mercilessly.

In my view we could get out of this mess if only people would stop sleepwalking, wake up, and start THINKING.

Another thing: I have come to distrust any author who gets published on a massive scale, like Tolle. I'm sorry, but nothing gets published unless it contributes to the evil agenda because of who owns the publishing houses. Once awakened, it's a very lonely world indeed.

Susanne said (January 27, 2016):

Re: Thinking is An Addiction

Firstly, I’m so grateful for all the work you have done. I have read your first book and your others are waiting in my book shelves to get to.

I whole heartedly agree that we are constantly being told what and how to think and feel.

But as my Catholic priest says, there is not one person in the whole world that you are going to agree with 100% of the time. So, not having seen the Eckhart Tolle video, I would caution against meditation after having read the Australian New Scientist magazine of 16 May 2015. The article Ommm… aargh!, page 28, stated that "7 per cent of people of meditation retreats experienced profoundly adverse effects, including panic and depression.” “Another reason … is that when you meditate ‘the scum rises to the surface’. … intrusive thoughts and feelings - such as sexual, sad, fearful or violent ones - that may arise rather abruptly when you meditate. … Buddhist texts that explain how individuals who have become enlightened through meditative practice may act amorally if their actions are undertaken in a detached state of mind. Rather than being exceptional, the association between meditation and detached killing became the norm in Japan during the second world war. … People who try meditation and mindfulness should be aware of the whole range of effects associated with these techniques and how they work differently for each of us.”

Again, that you so much for your work and I look forward to reading tomorrow’s article.

FH said (January 26, 2016):

I just finished reading your essay on mind control. It's so heart wrenching to see all the turmoil, discontent, and the tragic dysfunction heaped upon decent God loving people(Americans as a whole, decieved by the crumbling yet powerful elite shit heads) who take the false flag garbage as the total truth. As a native Philadelphian who constantly tries to maneuver the current waterways of evil, misinformation and well, corruption to the core of my nation, I am Henry, confused and broken by what feels like a world of total street theater run by these wicked brainwashed imbeciles. What am I to do amidst a beautiful people (USA) hijacked by a Satanic cabal?

Brings me back to the ancient traditions of the Early church Fathers called Hesychasm.

The ancients knew thinking could be dangerous to one's peace of mind. Specifically, the random thoughts that pop into one's mind and create their own narrative.
One of the foremost speakers featured on Public Television is a Dr Amen who labels these progressive random thoughts as ANTS, which result in depression and thwart psychological and physical rehabilitation and lifestyle changes of any kind.

While ridiculed by some as a "snake oil salesmen", most who listen to him recognize this part of his lectures as truth........proving once again .

There is nothing new under the sun. Just new ways of telling it.

This article on media-enhanced psychological warfare warping our thinking and causing "over-think"about the wrong things is well-taken.

We're relentlessly prodded away from spiritual pursuits and a life of reflection and virtue.

I would add, however, that even the alternative media and overall freedom movement needs to reflect on itself a little.

Namely, I mean that "patriots" tend
to over-think about the bad guys and dark days and avoid solutions. Alex Jones is a case in point and the many that he influences, but it goes way beyond him. How much do we need to know about the bad guys and their nefarious schemes, before we act? Is reading 100 books enough? 1,000? 10,000? If a house is on fire, do we ponder the nature of fire? True, some details and updates are needed to get a good handle on Illuminati tactics, agendas, crimes etc. A degree of careful study will always be necessary, of course.

But when you consider something like Social Credit ( or which can short-circuit and disarm the controlling bankers' chief weapon--the debt-based money system, the theft and harnessing of the communal capital for the bankers' own wealth and power, etc.--there needs to be a more straightforward pursuit of such a solution, in order to dedicate unified energy to the core problem, rather than patriots shooting their arrows in 10,000 different directions.

That confusion of, and complexity within, the freedom movement is probably partly induced by the powers-that-be. Even the emphasis placed on exposing Jewish control can go too far, since that fixation, regardless of its accuracy, is an easy excuse for well-intended reformers to be tagged and dismissed as anti-Semites. Sometimes, "exposure" is not enough. We need to seek solutions, however fleeting they sometimes seem, with as much focus as we can muster. That is "thinking" that's well-spent. If we correct the financial hold the rulers have on us, we can open new doors to higher levels of personal reflection and leisure time--and that would also buy valuable time to reorient our governing structures and send certain malefactors to prison for gargantuan lengths of time, all very well-deserved.

Thanks for the food for thought Henry. Here is are two quotes my a Muslim writer named Yasmin Mogahed that are similar sentiments.

"So for all those, who have spent their life seeking, know that purity of any thing is found at the Source. If it is love that you seek, seek it through God. Every other stream, not based in His love, poisons the one who drinks from it. And the drinker will continue to drink, until the poison all but kills him. He will continue to die more and more inside, until he stops and finds the pure Source of water.

Once you begin to see everything beautiful as only a reflection of God's beauty, you will learn to love in the right way: for His sake. Everything and everyone you love with be for, through and because of Him. The foundation of such love is God. So what you hold onto will no longer be just an unstable feeling, a fleeting emotion. And what you chase will no longer be just a temporary high. What you hold, what you chase, what you love, will be God: the *only* thing stable and constant. Thereafter, everything else will be through Him. Everything you give or take or love or don't love, will be by Him. Not by your nafs. It will be for Him. Not for your nafs/self."

Thank you so much for the beautiful post.

Just thought I'd share part of a verse from the Quran:

"Surely, in the remembrance of God do hearts find true serenity." (13:28)

Connie said (January 8, 2015):

The part of you that watches your thoughts is the real you, it is your soul. This is what we do in meditation. Yet, while your are watching, you need a yardstick to measure and to evaluate those thoughts. This was hinted at in your Test Pattern with a picture of Christ in the middle. Your soul needs the Truth to anchor it in spiritual reality, to discern which thoughts are worth keeping and which thoughts to chase away. This is what we do in prayer.

Gene said (January 8, 2015):

You are correct about the soul. Jesus said that the Kingdom of God is within us, unqualified. That Kingdom of God is the soul and both are spiritual. We know that the spirit controls the physical because God, the spirit, created all of the physical. Our concentration must be to seek and begin to appreciate our soul as the Kingdom of God. Jesus told us how to do that by loving our fellowman and God. All we have to do is heed as best we can the simple instructions of Jesus and everything in our life changes for the good.

I have spent vast amounts of time pondering why we are here and can only come to a simple conclusion that makes sense. God gave us free will so that we would come to him, not because we have to, but because we want to out of love for him. All that we endure seems to point to that conclusion. Without difficulties, we would have no choices to make including choosing God.

Keep up the good work.

Is it possible that our reality is created by the frequency of energy we put out? I haven't owned a TV in 8 years...I giggle like a monkey when I see one because I SEE the TV as such a potent mind control device especially the new HD TV's. The TV actually REDUCES our frequency.

I think more and more we are going to have separate "reality frequencies" that people will experience during this Shift that is happening. The Illuminati and their "military industrial mickey mouse complex" will blow itself up over time while other people of higher frequency will enjoy love with the farmers and joyous people of the planet. That is my opinion based on observation of what I see "energetically" taking place...

Once you begin to see everything beautiful as only a reflection of God’s beauty, you will learn to love in the right way: for His sake. Everything and everyone you love with be for, through and because of Him. The foundation of such love is God. So what you hold onto will no longer be just an unstable feeling, a fleeting emotion.

John G said (January 7, 2015):

As scripture tell us, only the pure in heart will see God. The scholars and the learned are often too wrapped up in their carnal analysis of things. This prevents them from having a pure mind and heart. They always rely on man's interpretation of reality and not God's through the scriptures. To them the Holy Bible is a collection of fables and contradictions that, for the life of them, they just can't grasp. Their beliefs are rooted in science and biology where the soul is absent and can have no place.

If salvation was all about worldly knowledge than only the scholars would have a place in the Kingdom of Heaven. Salvation comes from the consciousness of man's being in relation to God's commands. Their is no better illustration of this than the Parable of The Good Samaritan. The learned Levite priest walks by a wounded man on the side of the road while the lesser and looked down on Samaritan rescues him. Who is the the true pious one here that knows God?

Knowledge by itself never saved anyone's soul but only love through charity can cover a multitude of sins.
