Many people ask about this or something similar so here's some
thoughts on the subject.
I don't mean to tell anyone what to do,
as that's completely contrary to consciousness and conscious
development, but I will share my understandings at this point and my
passion for Truth and you can do what you like with it.
"What do you say to people who have
woken up but
can't leave the system because
of family and friends?"
This and those like it pose a very broad
question since we're all different and need to be led of our own
convictions. However, the answer is fundamentally similar in every
Do what consciousness tells you.
There's really no time for fiddling around once you've found what
you know to be the Truth, which is always something clearly outside
the realm of what you've been indoctrinated with. It's always life
altering. And if it isn't, you didn't hear correctly or it fell on
I don't want to be counted amongst the deaf or unresponsive. Do you?
Especially when you found out that that's exactly what perpetrates
the big lie you found out about - a compliant, non-awake populace.
System Dependence is
the Name of the Game
That's the trouble with the "system", it teaches dependency,
hierarchy, and rote knowledge, where your choices are carefully
narrowed down to "acceptable" alternatives within carefully confined
That's why people feel like fish out of water when they wake up.
They never learned how to truly think freely, nor did they have the
knowledge tools. Instead, most everything was reversed, scrambled,
confused and filed away in seeming useless obscurity.
The result is not just a marginalization of empowering Truths into
the catch-all dustbins of "conspiracy theory" or wing nut stuff, but
worse yet, the system does not cultivate original thought or true
personal freedom or responsibility.
The real Truth is not an option in such a controlled environment.
Oh, you get smatterings of truths, but drawing awake and aware
conclusions is not an option to humanity's would be Controllers.
The Wake Up Starts
with a Bang
But You Have to Keep It Going
When someone awakens to the true nature of the manipulated world we
live in, as well as the vast resources at our immediate conscious
fingertips, it takes some doing to fully realize what that
information means, as well as the vast implications on your personal
It can hit hard and may need some time to be digested.
How it affects each of us individually is really a question of
simply putting what we've learned into action and trusting the
Universe for the consequences.
I don't think there's time for much else.
In fact, there never has
If you know the Truth, what are you waiting for?
While many are hoping for some kind of soft-pedaling of any kind of
action call, it's not a set formula. You just find out, and you
And just that takes some doing, breaking off the rust of your
True Self to animate and start to call the shots that were
previously hindered by life long programming.
Stages of Development
For me the full wake up took on many stages of development, but the
full blown realization of the vast extent of the manipulated lie and
its fleshed out intricacies was a head splitting explosion that blew
me past the pull of convention's gravity so fast I'm still grinning
from ear to ear as I zip through the universe... ha!
The point there being, the wake up takes on many forms and evolves.
What gives the wake up traction is commitment, putting feet to your
You think TV's bad? Turn it off.
Banks are a rip off? Get out except
for perhaps necessary operating funds if need be.
Trapped by the
ownership of housing, "might needs", and all kinds of dumb stuff?
Dump everything you can, if that's your understanding.
"stuff owns you" is fundamental to consciousness.
We all get there,
but it depends on our enthusiasm… or "spirit in us".
How many respond to just that?
Do What You
Know or Face Confusion
Until people put into action what they already know, there isn't
going to be much more to follow for them.
Just a lot of flailing about in
frustration because we don't do what we already know we should do
and are looking for excuses or compromised solutions to assuage our
guilty conscience and hopefully preserve our personal status quo.
Sad, but true.
That also includes getting right with people, making relationships
honest, and disengaging from situations of compromise.
Know You Are Nobody -
All this is a whole lot easier when you realize you are nobody.
There's nothing to defend.
Your old senses of self were the very strings the lying matrix
played upon. Get conscious and the sirens of the system don't affect
you except peripherally.
That's a biggie.
Conscious awareness is number one realizing and seeing through the
higher level of awareness that is detached from this life's
experiences, and thus free to discern and identify without
attachment what your life experience is.
Seeing through those eyes will bring tremendous peace and
Get Along But Don't
Don't fret the next steps.
If the universe is so vast and full of
infinite possibilities there's going to be something for everybody.
Our job is to find it and when we find it, act on it. No, it's not
the "safe" way, or the "accepted" way.
We do have to break free.
In reality the parasitic system has been sucking you dry and lying
to you and everyone you love. You now no longer owe it any
allegiance and can and should disengage any and every way you can.
No guilt trip necessary. You are doing what is right.
And that is not contingent on relationships, financial security,
self image concerns, or what have you.
So get any and all attachments possible out of play. Happily...
are freeing yourself from the spider's tentacles.
There's Real Peace in

convention and stand up for what you know is right, it leads to a

The Truth Glasses
I read this fantastic analogy and it's never escaped me.
Finding out the whole truth is like putting on these amazing Truth
glasses, much like the movie "They Live".
Here's how they work:
You have to want to put them on
You can't force someone else to
put them on
Once they're on, you can't take
If you've found and put on the glasses,
that will make total sense.
If you haven't, keep searching.
Let your heart lead you.
In the words of Lao Tsu:
At the center of your being you have
the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.
