As a powerful individual, your ability to choose – to carve out your own reality – is what made you who you are. Along the way, those endless choices have brought you upon an avenue chock full of possibilities that helped you mold yourself into who you chose to be come and what you ultimately stand for.
Through our personal roller-coaster journeys called life, we often find things/ideas/symbols/art pieces that echo our very soul through and through.
Hold that thought for a second.
Am sure someone has asked you to ponder upon the following for a moment. If nobody has, then take a minute to think, or as long as you need for you to narrow it down.
What is your personal song? The song that is you in every way shape and sound?
If you can’t narrow it down for whatever reason, consider the perfect book, the perfect verse, photograph, view, or moment shared with a significant other. Does that widen the breadth of options?
Now that you have the answer, what is it? Do you know this art piece like the back of your hand? Of course you do. That’s why is your favorite moment.
Why is this important? Because we are going to undertake a mental exercise for a moment.
This song [or whatever you chose] will represent everything you think is perfect about life. This song is the upper echelon of existence, pure bliss, mellifluous rapture, the works. This song ultimately represents you and the perfect reality in your mind. This song is the material representation of your very essence: your soul.
This song should be so powerful, that it should be able to fix all problems, mend all rifts, and heal all wounds. Everything.
In fact, am certain that for nigh everyone, these songs are so meaningful/powerful that they have helped us through some dire straits.
Now sit listening to it for quite a while. In fact, listen to it as long as you want. Could this song, really in all its infinite glory, be a synopsis of everything that is perfect in life for you? Could you listen to this song for the rest of your life and do nothing else?
A version of the previous idea was posed by Jon Rappoport [nomorefakenewscom] during an interview a while back. That is when his words/idea really resonated with me.
At first blush, the possibility seemed quite likely that in my case listening to the song, forever, might be possible. Had to ruminate quite a while about it however.
After some time, figured out that personally, even if it was the perfect song – in all its infinite glory – it would eventually get tiresome and it would bore me out of my skull.
Why is this? Because we know there is more out there. Having had experienced different ideas/escapes/latitudes that we consider perfect, we realize that life is about…variety. It’s about change. Is about breathtaking moments, which are the opposite side of the coin of the events that cause entropy/chaos.
The most perfect moment, the most perfect photograph, the most perfect kiss, is all bound upon the idea that is detachable from reality in away. In that way, carrying it around in your mental inbox heightens your life by having experiencing such personal perfection within your reality structure.
Yet, given the fact that life itself is beautiful because of the imperfections [one can’t appreciate the good without having experienced the bad], those personal and unique quintessential moments resound within our very soul since those are the exception.
That’s what makes perfect moments – a perfect song/photograph/verse/time shared – so special. Because it’s a symbol of who you are in a way. Or better said, it’s a symbol of what you believe one fragment of perfection is. It’s the brainchild of imagination, bliss and perfection exemplified.
The beauty of it all? There’s more.
There is always more.
There are more options. More songs. More books. More verses. More photographs. More moments. More avenues/journeys which can guide you into new unknown wonders.
With so many untold possibilities and versions of what people hold as perfect, why are so many people eager to push their version of what they see as great/perfect onto others? You would figure people would be eager to share [and not push], explore [and not shun] what can be found, or accomplished together even. Rare is the case it seems.
And no, the former is not about superficial material objects or anything of the like. It’s about ideas/moments that change people. Heck, that change the entire course of their lives.
We’re talking about monumental personal changes that in any way shifts your life/reality tectonically into a whole new continental landscape of possibilities.
Now that you have a centerpiece for your dreambuilding operation, what you to do? Is it time to let that song/moment cycle through endlessly, for the rest of time? Or is it time to venture into the ceaseless unknown to see what other gems you may find?
Better yet: are you going to share your idea/knowledge with others? How about sharing it with those that lift you up? Those individuals would certainly know you best , and certainly appreciate you for who you are in your essence.
Either way, it’s a beautiful thing to have so many choices and to be able to choose, rather than to have anything – ideology/idea/religion – pushed onto you as if your freedoms are limited, or as if you have no other choice. As if your mind can’t make a choice on its own. As if you have no personal power as an individual. As if your wisdom is non-existent. As if life/reality must fit in a box, and anything that doesn’t fit within that particular type of box doesn’t belong there.
How about this: why not think of the most perfect of everything that you can think of, make sure you have that/those idea[s] solidly in your mind, and hold it there. Thence, do everything possible to think of something better, something greater, something vastly more interesting/boundless than what you just thought before. Now isn’t that stretching imagination a bit?
That’s better. That’s a lot better.
It’s like taking a photograph, and turning it into a universe.
Seeing a snippet of the latitude that imagination provides can do wonders. It truly can. Like a torpedo, it hones in and focuses on those things that drive you that separate free individuals from the pack.
If you’re a musician, this is the moment you write a new tune. If you’re an artists, this is where you can paint a boundless landscape on that blank canvas. If you’re a writer, this is where you put pen to paper, and get to work manifesting reality at the stroke of a pen.
What do all those examples have in common? Creation via your imagination.
The question isn’t why. The question is, why not?
The choice is yours.

In fairness to give credit where credit is due, this piece has come to fruition due the work of a person who we value highly. The name of this researcher/investigator is Jon Rappoport [nomorefakenews.com], and he carries out very incisive work in a myriad of fields. One of his posts, in similar light, inspired this particular piece.
Let’s preface the body of this piece with who this blog isn’t for.
This blog is not for folks that are lazy by choice and lackadaisical.
This blog is definitely not for people who value conformity in any way shape or form.
This blog is also not for the people who want the easy way out.
This blog is certainly not for folks that just want comfort or want issues sugar coated.
This blog isn’t for folks who don’t practice self-education.
And this blog finally isn’t for people who just want to be told what is best for them. Only the person themselves can ultimately decide what is best for them.
Who is this blog for?
This particular blog is for the masses individuals who want more; the ones who will not be held back on their journey to achieve the pinnacle of their dreams – their true dreams, not the ones prescribed by society.
Are you tired of the cookie cutter answers the establishment has ready-made for every single scenario that props up? Then this blog is for you. Are you searching for answers as to why the world is screwed up and don’t seem to find any semblance of an answer proposed by the comptrollers, then this blog is for you. Have you learned not to trust the mainstream media institutions/corporations that lie to you repeatedly and have taught you to question everything? This blog is for you.
Now let’s take a side road for a bit.
People are often quick to tell you their likes, their dislikes. However, we rarely hear people’s true passions, if those particular dreams go against the grain. This is because some people often criticize everything that doesn’t conform to their reality and personal point of views, which prevents others from opening up to them.
With that in mind, what is it YOU want? What is it you truly want? Are you living the life you wish for? If not, are you at least pushing beyond conventional thought to solve the issues preventing you from attaining/creating your reality/dreams?
Its easy to live the comfortable life – the prescribed life. That tends to get people in a funk. And am in no way implying that anyone reading this blog is settling at all. In fact, if you’re reading this blog you’re probably the vanguard of the tidal wave. You are the type of individual making changes, pushing against the grain, cracking bricks with toothpicks of rebellion that give globalists spinning headaches at night because you are the key to this whole enigma – the free individual.
Individuals that are not bound to the grid in ways corporations love because it nets them untold profits are the ones this blog is for.
It takes true drive/courage to reach out and go beyond your comfort levels and take [or start?] a path seldom followed. This is known to me from experience.
Being the only ship making way for a particular unique bearing, while the entire armada is anchored at the harbor can be quite daunting. It can seem you are not just the tip of the spear, but the entire spear itself. You are your own help, your own protector. Even your very own liberator. But isn’t what life is all about? This is not about doing everything by yourself. But some particular battles rest upon on you, and only you.
In any case, it is you who ultimately has to answer for the choices you have/haven’t made. It is you will have the knack for success when the chance arises, or will learn from failure on your way to knowledge/wisdom before reloading. it is you who has the brass stones to plow forth through the inferno of conformity, dislodging all obstacles in your path and it is certainly you who are responsible for your life at the very end. Why not make it your choice? Your reality? Why not now? Why give others that option?
Striving/creating something greater for yourself takes a lot of drive/imagination. It takes a lot of effort with bucket loads of focused intent that would leave your naysayers in the star dust.
With that said, what can one do?
Encircling yourself with like-minded individuals that will help you to thrive is a start. Narrowing down which path you want to take is a must. Infuse your life with as many solutions will give you latitude while saturating yourself with imagination will give your possibilities precision.
It is your life. You decide. For better or worse, you always do.
“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.”

“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so let us all be thankful.”

Thanksgiving is one of those times where everyone is thankful, everything is copacetic, and things are looking up. Life is great. Nothing could be better.
It certainly is a rather pleasant having everyone navigate through life as if nigh walking through clouds. An observation regarding this is that this mostly only takes place through the Holidays. Does that not ever make you wonder?
Rewinding back the tape a bit, over a decade ago back at the University used to have a great friend while at ASU. We were both in the same Manzanita dorm, both in the Aerospace Engineering floor, and after meeting early on and clicking extremely well we made sure to take as many classes together since it would be highly beneficial to be able to have a ‘study-buddy’ and such. Due to this we naturally spent a lot of time together.
In any case, one thing that always amazed me was that it seemed that this individual knew everybody.
When approaching people he would say: “Hi, how’s it going?” “Hey, how you doing?” “How’s your day?” “How was your weekend?” And so on and so forth. This took place every day we were out and about. It stunned me, because at first blush, it seemed to me that he knew everyone. Why wouldn’t he? He sure talked to everyone like he did.
That led to me posing the question to him of how he got to know so many people. He proceeded to laugh nervously and told me that he didn’t know any of those people before. That stunned me. After asking a few people to verify he wasn’t yanking my chain, it turns out in fact, most of those people he didn’t know at all. Later on, finding out that it came natural to him, he said you just have to put yourself out there and see what you find.
Me being mostly an introvert back then, and not ‘out of my shell,’ it wasn’t easy to just go up to random people and start a conversation. But after meeting him it became easier and easier, to the point that it’s been something that has been implemented into my daily repertoire in countless interactions with folks.
Why is this important? Because in over a decade of interaction with hundreds of folks, from all walks of life, in many different places, at least half the people or so don’t seem to have much interest in interacting with folks besides the usual cursory manner. Some will even give you askance looks like “What the hell do you want?” Most people are polite though. It’ fascinating from a macro observation point of view.
Have queried some of my friends on the matter and they all agree with the general consensus.
This isn’t the case during the holidays though.
It seems everyone is “nice” and “polite”. The reason that’s in quotations is because, if most people were really nice, wouldn’t they be nice all of the time, rather than only during the Holiday season? It’s just a question. It just makes me wonder who’s doing it because that’s what is expected and who is doing it because that’s how they are. There is an enormous difference.
Many folks will undoubtedly feel it is easier to say hello during the holidays, as opposed to other parts of the year. That is not the case with everyone. One can tell some folks are just doing it because it’s what society expects. It just makes me wonder why society is how it is, and why people choose to act how they act, regardless whether its the holidays or not.
Another recent example of interactions with folks in my life took place when going to the Secret Space Program Conference in Bastrop Texas this year. From the moment you entered the doors of the convention center, you could just feel the atmosphere be electric. It was so dense you couldn’t slice it with a light saber.
Within a minute or so, was having conversations with two separate groups of folks and that basically set the tone for the rest of the weekend. Ended up myself meeting folks from all walks of life. Engineers, teachers, civil servants, business folks, retired military and people from other strata of society.
Conversations flowed, information was shared, life was contemplated and no topic was off the table. It was easy to see that people were being genuine. Although the conference focused on the Secret Space Program and Breakaway Civilizations, people found out about that topic from a myriad of avenues. That was very fascinating. People came at it from a financial point of view, from the environment angle, from space [obviously], from technology, from education, and even a philosophical or existential point of view, and thensome.
What does this event have in common with the Holiday season? Atmosphere.
The atmosphere was what the people chose it to be – that made all the difference in the world. That fact alone was worth the travel.
The question is: Why do most people choose to only be friendly during the holidays, but forgo that option during a large portion [most?] of the remaining of the year? Ponder about that for a minute.
If the holidays are the holidays because the atmosphere that is generated by people, then why couldn’t people do that all the time? Why couldn’t people live more potent, friendly, interesting lives then what they currently do? Why couldn’t we all meet more neighbors instead of all living in our abodes and logging most of our interaction through online venues?
Seems like we are only a choice away from much better times. Isn’t that interesting?
It would be a reasonable to presume that if most [not even all] people took this type of approach to life, everything would be much better. It’s unfortunate that most people get hung up on the differences of others, because it leads to the very environment that we live in where left vs. right issues are fomented daily unfortunately.
Ultimately, a better world is a mere thought away. Seems like a lot of power for individuals to have. That’s the thing, we’ve always had it except most people give it away only acting upon information provided by others such as the media, rather than conclusions that were arrived from personal insight/research.
What better world to live in than that?
Sure seems something to be thankful for, every day and not just when we’re told to be.
