Linguistic misperceptions amidst a 'war' on communication

ZNET article: Former NSA deputy director: Snowden leaks caused 'significant disservice' to the Internet

Summary: Edward Snowden caused more damage to the Internet than the U.S. intelligence community did, according to a former deputy director of the NSA. But of course, he would say that. So, now what?

- - -

One can do a disservice to another or to others by acting in a way that undermines integrity, trust of communication and purpose.
One cannot do a disservice to 'the Internet', any more than to 'History'.

The revealing of hidden agendas potentially serves a clearer communication because one is no longer suffering under the illusion of privacy or confidentiality and thereby unwittingly having one's acts and communications used or abused by secret others.

But secret personal agendas are the nature of power struggles, and everyone who subscribes to that mentality engages at some level, personally and collectively in power struggle.

As a result of it becoming more publicized that digitally transmitted information is logged and monitored or surveiled in various ways by powers great or small, one can be more discerning as to what, why and how one acts and expresses themselves.

The 'revelations' could feed into the NSA/GCHQ design by magnifying the fearful belief in an all seeing power that can strike anywhere in the world at will - or put one on a blacklist or indeed an asset list. Thus almost everyone will police themselves in fear and be less and less able to communicate openly if they have to use complex security encoding protections.

As such it is the revealing of uncloaked power, and whatever the reactions or costs to US/UK Tech sector or political reputations globally, it asserts itself under guise of notional security. The notion being that the guise of US interest as defined by its financial and corporate masters is equated with a global influence that extends into the space around our planet.

Power struggles often result in destructive change rather than shifting consciousness more gracefully. The latter is the opportunity to awaken as the Consciousness Responsibility in which mentalities, personas and ideology and beliefs play out as polarites of each other.

The Internet, in its rapidly evolving extension of our own consciousness REFLECTS that consciousness back to us. Humankind has its own inner 'virtual realities' and dislocations from our actual presence, our actual, integrity. We are never lacking faith. We simply choose WHAT to invest it in. If we chase the game of power, we become exclusively identified with our persona/avatar. But as with any inflated bubble of perceived value - it pops to a humiliation that actually serves a true humility.

Discernment is not a strategy so much as an extension of trust. First one has to uncover a basis of trust within one's own consciousness, and that requires releasing the projection and investment of one's own shadow hates and fears on others as a mode of keeping them hidden from one's OWN awareness.

The world as we know it is structured so as to serve the division of consciousness rather than its unified expression. The Internet is being structured likewise by setting up fear. Free sweets make an identification and scarcity holds the control. Nothing new here.

The dependency on externals reflects a lack within. One may shift from fear by recognizing 'external' fulfilments with heartfelt gratitude within, and the extension of such in honour and appreciation into our lives. Whereas the more one fights, the more there is to fight.

A computer maxim is 'garbage in; garbage out'. The thoughts, feeling and beliefs that run in our mind are not really put there by others unless one persists in THAT belief. We choose what to accept into our mind and then act from it and make it our own. This responsibility remains ours no matter how deeply we seem to have given it away. We can never escape it for free will is the nature of our being - as we are created to extend likewise. A virtual layer runs in emulation in which the puppets seem to have cut their strings and be powers unto themselves.
Games are addictive and can persist long after the fun has worn off.
It is all in our Face - as we are willing to see.

Happiness is the Gift of Being

Telegraph article: Eating your greens will not make you happy, finds Government-backed study

Children allowed to eat sweets and watch television in moderation score higher for “well-being” than those not allowed to at all, study funded by Department of Health concludes


Happiness as reported by children is not happiness as observed and felt in children - who are learning to develop an inner persona as a means of self-becoming, and an outer persona as a means of self-protection.

Happiness is innate. That which embodies it, extends its qualities. The substitute of external stimulations is a kind of 'prison food' and effects a sense of disconnection from the movement of one's very being. A loss or covering over of a natural intimacy within.

Data collection via disembodied mentality within the attempt to control - COULD be carried out happily - but true happiness not only knows its joy - it is open to and part of the joy of others.

Happiness is generally sacrificed - our young are sacrificed - to a loveless god. Call it the 'real world' if you want, but it is an agreement to look anywhere but on love's desecration and therefore NOT feel the urgent inner need to realign oneself to a deep and genuine self-honesty and thus step free of fearful division.

The persona, once negatively aligned in segregated sense of self, works against its own happiness by seeking a self-protective control. The abundant sparkle and vitality of youth is spent in self-defeating struggle. However happiness remains our innate condition and leaks out or bleeds through its prison in so many ways, and much in our life is felt as a pleasure or a good - but is seen ONLY in the world of conditions and not recognized within. Thus we fear losing even what we have and cannot really enjoy.

It takes one to know one. The self you look out from is the world you perceive and share. But no one else decides the choice you make. Decide to be happy by not using the mentality of unhappiness as if it will get or bring you something you feel denied or deprived of. Rest through the shite to find and be found in a wholeness of being. If YOU want. There's no other reason to be happy than YOU want to have and to hold and to share... what you are. In your own inherently unique way.

Coercion distorts and blocks happiness. True happiness is free from coercive intent.


If 'studies' had to be reported by real journalists who are paid and allowed to research the information that is fed into newsfeed sources, they could check on the funding.
Scientists are not paid and allowed to do the science of their innate curiosity, so much as the science that supports the technologism behind the vested interests of very powerful lobbies.

Whatever may be found to be 'good for you' may not be found good when it is coercively applied - regardless how disguised the 'incentives' might be in doublespeak.

Free will remains the principle of communication and relationship that science cannot study because it models a mechanism in place of a relationship. The idea that mechanism can replace relationship is being developed to ever new degrees of absurdity. Control over is not the same as finding harmony within. Lip-service to the good has no conviction if it is not also freely happy and thus communicates a demand for conformity to externals - at the expense of one's true feelings.

The redefinition of happiness as a momentary escape from a presumed normal un-happiness is the hollow basis of addictive compulsions. Sober clear appreciation of existence remains available despite propaganda in our thinking or as bombarded by media and pervasive conditioned society. This is happiness in a way that is also peaceful and discerning - because it is within a felt sense of the presence of the moment as it flows - rather than the moment plundered and rendered fleeting.

This is to say that most are living in a virtual world of their own thinking, that is largely invisible to them and therefore invites being manipulated by social pressures as well as corporate and political private agendas.

Do we repeat and share on information without a process of discernment as to what we are strengthening in ourselves and propagating in society? The Media certainly seem to!
But if we accept mechanistic models in place of our own participatory presence, we operate through the filters of presumed truths that simply are not true.

I have a sense that those trying to maintain deadness need and want dead food and dead media so as to suppress awareness of hollowness and self-conflicting dissonance. Living food supports a subtler and more inclusive communication at all levels of our being. But one cannot raise the dead, so much as serve in reflecting the Life in them - thus waking them to the meaninglessness from which they are free to walk if they so desire.

Psychological (sic) FELT well being expresses itself in behaviours that reinforce itself - as does a sense of inadequacy, lack, invalidity, sickness, unworthiness and lovelessness. Such is the nature of physical existence in reinforcing and reflecting our thought, feeling and self-definition.

The state of being comes first - even within its behaviours - for the Creative pervades its creations - even if it is a false or mistaken premise. Humankind tends to disown and hide Consciousness - like a banker hides toxic debt. There are toxins at all levels of our world now - including our food - but also in our thought. And there are vested interests whose blinkered agenda actively promotes life-negative outcomes for populations and for our planet for the sake of squeezing a bit more of a cash and power high out of the living to feed those who chose to be dead to their true relation.
