"If we want to climb a ladder, we have to let go of one rug in order to reach the next one" says Thich Nhat Hanh. He also says that "in troubled times, there is an urgency to understand ourselves and our world".
Today, we stand at a major turning point, one that has forced us to climb to the next rug. An end to an era and the arising of a saga has come, forcing us to relearn and adjust for the sake of simple survival.
Staying in tune with what is an era of exponential rethinking of our way of life is essential, particularly when the underlying root of our current chaos is blurred by a hidden group of self-proclaimed "enlightened souls", whose intentions may not be what they loudly proclaim. They are invading our TV screens, yet we may not know who they truly are. In the past, these highly influential hidden powers carried the prestigious name of Illuminati's. Shadowy cabals that supposedly controlled the world, their organization was founded by Adam Weishaupt, a German law professor who believed strongly in Enlightenment ideals among elites. Weishaupt wanted to educate Illuminati members in reason, philanthropy and other secular values so that they could influence political decisions when they came to power.
In short, the Illuminati's goals was to control the world. They promoted a worldview that reflected Enlightenment ideals like rational thought and self-rule. Anti-clerical and anti-royal, the Illuminati were closer to revolutionaries than world rulers, since they sought to infiltrate and upset powerful institutions like the monarchy.
Conspiracy theories suspect that the movement never disappeared and that its modern version includes big names infiltrated at all levels of society. Thomas Jefferson was accused of being a member of the group, and today, many celebrities and top level politicians are mentioned. We may argue that the whole thing is just ridiculous, however all conspiracy theories are tied to someone who is supposedly powerful. After all, celebrities represent a new and unusual form of power that has an understandable conspiratorial response.
As power is indeed often beyond our eyesight. It is a notion, an idea, a perception. It's intangible and mysterious, made of invisible layers, which would make it impossible for us to know who its modern players could potentially be. Could modern Illuminati's have instigated a worldwide pandemic to get rid of older populations that they loudly refuted for being too "stuck in their ways"? Or could they have decided that the over-population of our world needed a quick "adjustment"? This sound wave is, by the way, openly discussed by many.
It is indeed a new world with citizens ruthlessly howling for redistribution of wealth and equalization of powers necessary to a more balanced landscape. Starvation is one of the main ingredient of rebellious energies as the passion it generates is boundless.
Because when one has lost it all, including the roof above their head and the means to create a steady influx of income, the drive to enforce change becomes relentless and unbending. It is then that governments have no other choice but revisit established rules as they would otherwise very likely face fierce rebellion and social uproar that could easily rescind any chance of return.
For them, climbing to the next rug may only be optional. For us, it's survival and we will only do it successfully if we develop a clear understanding of the new world we live in. Indeed, we are forced to reimagine, adjust, invent, create and do it with the utmost awareness of what truly is. Because the old ways are gone, and because I always choose to bring a positive outlook to life, I want to believe that they may have unknowingly opened up new paths that can gently push us to the top of the ladder.
But this will only happen if we open up our eyes to uncover the deep layers of truth, adjust our mindset to question everything instead of swallow all that is unscrupulously thrown at our face, and sharpen our vision so we can see through the blurred tiers created by those who don't want us to see...
