Unite or not unite - that is the question
One aspect of divide and rule is the engagement of attention in displaced identification. This is like getting you to look at something distracting or compelling as a way of not noticing what is actually going on. So part of you doesn't have to know while the other part believes it knows. This may be compounded by the manipulations of others - but first you have to be willing to enter the mind-mask of a manipulative deception and we all already are engaged and identified in mask or persona for this is a part of what it is and does. It offers strategy of coping with and surviving the separation trauma that is to one degree or another part of the 'entrance' to the human experience - at least as we are collectively agreeing to experience it.
A sense of seeming threat or promise makes a fragmented identity in opposition and feels right or justified over and against something or someone else that seems wrong. In this way we can be induced to act out and believe outcomes that are completely contra to what we really want.
The key to union is not getting Humpty together again - as a joining of separate and conflicting or competing parts, a natural but aligning in true purpose. The divide and rule purpose is a segregative and separative movement and is perhaps founded on the core imprint belief that you cannot live and share in your joy in this world - that is thus seen and reacted to as unseeing of you and treacherous - not to be trusted. And so we present a mask that partly meets what we believe the world or our society demands - as a shield - while also developing it as a way to manipulate outcomes without truly opening, sharing or communicating with those we are thus 'using' to get from.
In short we operate a withholding of the extension of our presence and a withdrawal from the presence of others as it naturally extends to us and so we operate a hate agenda in all sorts of ways that our front facing mask or surface identity is oblivious of - by design.
Union is already the nature of being - or its denial could have no basis upon which to operate, and the differentiations of perspective within being offer and open rich experience of unfolding expansion and recognition of being. Persistent identification within image and form is necessarily or inherently conflicting with the unfolding movement of That which Identifies us perfectly - and so the 'Fall' or separation experience into a sense of identity running contra to or not at one with the movement of our being - and this dissonance can be used to waken 'upstream' to the already wholeness or used as a basis to explore the idea and experience of ... power over Life. For pushing down and denying inner dissonance is the act of coercion and deceit that is denial - or divide and rule attempt to unify a conflicted sense of self and life and world.
So I write to invite the curiosity and desire for allowing a true foundation - a true movement of wholeness of being - to register within your awareness - as you - because such is the gift of joy and release - and recognize and appreciate the feeling, the connection and the freedom to live and move in your being - in ways that are practical and joyful or meaningful to that quality of worth which naturally extends to others, and your world - excepting your old habit and belief system operate to shut it down or subvert it to protect a fearful or guilted sense of self that you are now in a position to re-evaluate and reintegrate or release - as it rises in living your day.
And so you will see that the mind baits you to identify in thinking that is not aligned with who you are - and regardless where this thinking seems to come from - your responsibility to yourself is not to run with and trade in a false currency of thoughts, definitions and beliefs that demand the sacrifice of your honesty and joy in being.
Nor to presume to be further along in self awareness than you are - and so respecting the beliefs by which you actually do believe you must conform or perform instead of sharing your life in the whole.
Wherever we are coming from - is what we are meeting and yet if we are looking to manipulate specific outcome rather than simply trusting Life to align and reflect as its its nature - our being - then we will 'prove' that fear is right and 'justify' our identity in the segregative and conflicting purpose. And if that is our will or current willingness of acceptance - then our will is done - at least in the local reality experience of identification - but it will seem to be coercive upon us - because that is the reflection of the idea of separating so as to have power over. It is actually the magnification of powerlessness because true power is the balance within all things by which to know what you need to know - when you need to know it - and to do what you need to do when your need to do it. Alignment and synchronicity are qualities of an already unified willingness - and relationships of free association do not guilt and manipulate, coerce or deceive - in order to operate in harmony - whether someone seems to be leading or following or not.
Awakening is to what already is - but with new eyes - always with new eyes - for our true foundation is not a thing moving through time - but an arising or movement of desire and willingness for Life - that embraces the use of time for the revealing of eternal or timeless appreciation - rather than as a fear-based locked in sense of the survival of an unworthiness of Life seeking somehow to validate its best attempts at substitution for Life.
I sketch in words not to be right or to present a pleasing or provocative performance - but to witness in willingness - for whatever we do - embodies where we are coming from - and if our search for union is actually coming from a fear of union - then not only doesn't it work - it works against what is already working for us. Getting out of our own way requires becoming at least momentarily aware of how we accept and run self-beliefs that undermine or deny us - and then project blame onto Them - or whoever.
We can learn to use Them or whoever or whatever seems to operate the 'block' - as the clue and opportunity to notice our own correspondence or participation in purpose - because underneath all appearances, the joining in purpose - and frequency of resonance is what operates. So if you want to unite or relate - look to what you are inviting by who you accept your self to be. Discernment is the key.
When presented with two alternate choices - pause! Because the framing of the mind in duality is the baiting of identity in opposition. Simply embrace who you are and live that as your 'choice' or acceptance of being the true of you in a way to honours all of who you have been - because it is part of who you are. But do not demonize or invalidate the choice you no longer prefer or feel truly represents your now. There is the error of self-hate and division.

In Reply to Rachel:
Here is the solution. Everyone becomes a critical thinker which leads to the total rejection of easy to manipulate beliefs, IE all faiths and beliefs,ideologies and religious systems. We universality reject the either/or mentality. We overcome mob psychology and the effects of propaganda and indoctrination. A universal fundamental shift in the how people think is required to save ourselves.That said, I don't think it can be done. The masses are stupid. The elites are evil and greedy and nothing short of the above can change that. End result is we all go down together. We are looking right at but not seeing our own extinction. Normalcy biases and cognitive dissidence will not yield. Human nature has run it's course and the rail we are on is now driving us over a cliff. It is unavoidable. "Good by and thanks for all the fish."
All that is needed to fundamentally shift the way people think is for the false foundations to be exposed as false - that is - they don't work - are deceitful - and are propped up with coercion that demands the sacrifice of Life.
For sure there are some who find willingness to embrace change - and to embrace Life sooner than others who hide more desperately in a sense of power and protection against their mind breaking. So those who are living in willingness can serve those who are in need of help. However, the Chicken Licken alarmism is NOT itself waking up in willingness but still very much within the framework of the blame and power game. A disturbing world is appropriate to awaken compassion but compassion can only extend from acceptance of the same. The matrix-mind is a hate-mind operating as if it is righteous over and against evil seen exclusively OUT THERE. This is the attraction of guilt by which a separated off sense of power operates in secret. Such a one NEEDS evil, enemy and hate objects - except it is all dressed up to seem socially acceptable and mostly invisible.
I don't say this to take away human responsibility for communication and correction of error - but a hidden agenda is a hidden self-hatred masking as hatred of the other in one form or another. Releasing the conflicted self is an acceptance of unconditional love - but each believes the condition - ing by which they came to identify in a conflicting competing struggle of living.
If I set conditions that others have to meet before I will actually or genuinely relate to them or open communication - then I can wait on impossible solutions and decry the failure of everyone else to meet my standards. Yet we all have this fantasy world of a fantasy self that wont really embrace Life unless its conditions are met - and compromise in transactional relationships that engage in mutually reinforcing fantasy selves over against the world out there. In that sense our thinking is critical of anything living and has to see what is 'wrong with it' so as to be the judge whose righteousness is awaiting universal validation.
Human nature has yet to significantly awaken to embrace and transcend the human condition - ing. But there's no time like the present!

Rachel to me:"The cure which will never happen". Well what's that then? = No cure!
the cure is universal critical thinking which will never happen. See my post above
I hold that what passes off as thinking is spin - ie: that the first operation of deceit is not Them doing it to us - or to me - but my use of mind to uphold what I want to be true at expense of whole truth. Once currency is adulterated with false thinking - that mind is spun off into its own mis-taken false foundation and it 'sees' everything through a distortion filter and engages in power struggle with its own shadow.
Any solution that requires everyone else to change is giving off the smell of "I want the world to conform to ME - or MY thinking". This - I suggest is the nature of the problem - that we carry this self-specialness in all kinds of exclusive and polarised reaction.
A willingness to question our reality, our experience will never come while we believe it IS reality. One basis from which to challenge a loveless reality is simply " Do you want THIS? The investment in 'the devil we know' usually trumps risking a release of the 'known' in a willingness for change.
I say the cure is available but no one wants it - because the dynamic of conflict is so much more self-reinforcing to an identity founded in it (in conflict) than the release of such identity to an un-conflicted foundation.
While the acceptance of truth may seem to require or demand huge amounts of time - the truth of the matter is willingness and nor waiting on circumstance.
Blame thinking is guilt-directed and fear driven. Being right is not freedom to love (freedom from guilt and fear) - unless everyone is equally right = and if underneath all judgements and narratives, everyone is fundamentally a journey of discovery, then even the mistakes are part of that journey - and in that greater sense - part of a rightness or alignment of purpose that is hidden even though still operating.
Instead of giving up on Humanity - why not give up your thinking about Humanity? Because one's thinking is considered almost as our firstborn? We certainly tend to defend it as if it is our self. So yes - I agree we need to open a perspective in which we can observe and re-evaluate our own thinking. If it floats true - keep it and use it. If it is nothing true of you, let it fall off. But if your hopeless and therefore worthless sense of Humanity is a reflection of your self belief, then I invite you to consider that that thinking is NOT the true of you and in fact is unworthy of you.
Seeing the true from the false is needed to drop the false and align in the true - and no one else can do this for you - though solidarity, companionship and synchronicity operate when we are willing to step forth in true worth - if not in the form or the way we think.
Rachel :Why not engage in what you see as the cracks in logic rather than dismissively brush them aside as if you have no emotional stake?
well said, only a few cracks in logic. Some nice philosophical wish thinking. This is true. I have no emotional stake in this, but human nature as it is needs to evolve for us to survive and it hasn't and there is no indication that it will. Looking at past human types ( and our own cultures) that went extinct and seeing we follow the same natural pattern-- that of hitting our intellectual wall-- I don't see how we won't follow though to the logical conclusion. We are not immune to or above our own nature or planetary nature. Humans aren't exceptional, we are of our environment and evolution; a process that doesn't necessarily continue in time with a species' survival needs. That's a hard reality. There is no cure. Humans are not forever, no species is.
Evolution has not really occurred in human history in the way our presumption to exceptionalism, self-specialness and control paint it. What has occurred is a process of fragmentation of Consciousness in which the technos of define to command and control has consolidated itself at the cost of whole Souled living.
Of course if looking through a mechanism (accorded power to judge over and assert power over) - one arrives at a mechanical outcome - or a loveless and therefore destructive and degraded outcome.
Evolution is not the coercive imprinting of conformity and subjection to a supposed technocratic new world order in which emergent and technologically extended manipulations degrade humanity to robot serfs or replace with robots - while pharming the living for sickness and war in the name of their protection and power against terrors of whatever nature.
A qualitative shift of perspective to a fresh foundation is an Individual willingness - and cannot be 'organized' or 'collectivised' and so the mind-in-power cannot see it at all - ergo - it has no reality or validity - nice philosophical wish thinking.
Yet I assert that denied and secret hate generates 'nice philosophical wish thinking' as the mask it must present to justify the persistence of its active undermining denial persona.
The exposure of the hate will of course seem to be EVERYONE Else's business - but if I can invite a pause of investment and identity in blame - what is our personal participation.
Your head will not tell you - because you employed it to keep this from you - your heart knows - but the head-control denies it. The denial of the heart is another phrase for being beside yourself or out of your mind - and running in a displacement 'reality'. Letting back into wholeness is not a strategy of power struggle - but a recognition that the identity in power struggle is our part in the cause and effect of human insanity.
Neither vengeance nor terror can listen to this for neither will let go of what they believe is Necessary power and Necessary protection and any attempt to push on them will generate blocks of polarised breakdown of fragmentation. Only willingness for communication can actually communicate. All else is 'power struggle'. True communication includes heart acceptance. Ideas running that have noting real to substantiate them except masked rage and terror operate heart denial - or hate.
If you glimpse that your mind is operating a hate agenda - and don't hide it in a blame agenda - then you have a basis for realigning in a true foundation... or perhaps reinforcing a false with increased 'justifictions'.
This is our living Now - and not some model of linear compulsion by which to present only a face that supports identity in self-image - which inherently rejects anything that does not 'agree' or support its believed necessity.
So I am agreeing with you in significant respects - of being painted into a corner from which no escape can be found - in terms of our current framing of imagination and identity. That's our difference; I live the answer that the problem exposes as the call for correction or healing... in myself. Where the mind-trick of looking first to see what everyone else is doing operates the delay and diversionary tactic to feeling and knowing our heart's call. Denial. Denial. Denial. Not to engage battle with - but to recognize as something essentially meaningless to who I now accept myself to be - for I want to embrace Life on Earth and live that choice from a balanced flow of heart and mind - instead of the controlled narrative mind that baits and triggers emotional reaction to fuel the allegiance to feed and protect the narrative at expense of the truly lived and shared.
We are way too far apart to have a meaningful discussion, your rail and mine will never meet in the middle. I can't dispel your esoteric views with reason and you can't have me not think logically due your perspectives. This is classical apples Vs. oranges debate. We don't speak the same language. I enjoyed reading you, however.
Logic operates from a presumption or assertion. I don't argue your logic but your starting point.
If you are not willing to challenge or engage in a critical perspective relative to your presumptions - then your accusation of humanity's incapacity or failure to question or re-evaluate its thinking is an example OF IT.
I don't say this to win a point - but simply to note the way the mind does what it seems to defend against or differentiate from.
The defending of a limiting perspective hides - or makes esotoric - what otherwise stands obvious. A large part of my communication invites noticing the 'hidden agenda' - and not exclusively in 'others' - who are very convenient containers for what we reject or deny in ourself.
So yes there is an impossibility of communication or meeting between mutually exclusive foundations and therefore it is said one cannot serve two masters. So the fact that communication IS happening - if not in terms of agreement - but of willingness - then something of what I share does find resonance - even if the 'enjoyment of reading'.
Enjoyment is often associated with outer forms and conditions - which are then sought possession of or access to - but that is to put the foundation outside yourself. Humanity does this in large degree and so is not aware of its actual foundation - having given power to external conditions defined by past associations arising originally from a mis-taken identity - or a partiality taken as whole truth.
When communication truly occurs, space and time collapse and the world realigns to reflect a reintegration. Much of what passes as communication is self assertion seeking - and contesting validation - and yet I don't say this in condemnation.
Such a 'mind' CANNOT challenge or question itself - but operates a mesmeric fixation within a greater awareness that by stirring, breaks the grip of the fascination and wakens as fresh perspective - inspiration and healing unto a capacity for communication - by which I mean sharing Life - not words - for the forms of something communicate YOUR meaning - but not in terms of who or what you thought - and limited yourself to be.
In logical terms you presented a proof of self negating condition - and that is itself indicative of the basis of the thinking.
There is no basis from there to a positive loop excepting if you see that logic applies equally to whatever is held. However, a truly positive outcome may not be imaginable to the current mindset, so one has a step by step process of understanding and acceptance. Because - as some advert says "You're worth it!" However I have nothing to sell by association with inner truths and no desire for a Promethean outcome as a result of taking them for vanity.
