In 2015 I intend to begin a trek by foot across the United States of America. I plan to follow something called the American Discovery Trail. The route spans the US, from the Atlantic to the Pacific and could take as many as 9-10 months. In trying to explain why I would do this, perhaps reviewing a summary for a presentation I gave in January of 2014 to some friends at the Louisville Esoteric Society would be of some use. I had just finished five months hiking the Appalachian Trail prior to this talk. Below is a summary I wrote for that presentation. A video of the talk itself is available via a YouTube playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist-JourneyThruLymeEpilogue
JOURNEY THRU LYME: LYME DISEASE, THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL AND ONE MAN’S SEARCH FOR MEANING WITHIN THE MATRIX
In the latter half of 2013 I walked almost 1,900 miles from Maine to North Carolina on the Appalachian Trail (AT). I lived in the wilderness and walked all day, almost every day for five months. My motivation to hike the AT included my desire to raise awareness of the fastest spreading infectious disease in the United States, if not the world.
My one most consistent and meaningful experience on the trail reinforced this knowing: by nature, the vast majority of people are kind, generous, compassionate and empathetic. Yet contrasted against that recurring theme, this quote kept coming to my mind:
“Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it” – John Lennon
In the previous two years, Lyme disease had knocked me to the ground…literally and figuratively. Over the decades prior to my illness I had become well aware of what some now refer to as “The Matrix”, an interlocking system of mechanisms and hierarchical structures of social control and manipulation. But my personal experience with all the various aspects of this engineered epidemic called Lyme disease brought me face to face with what I believe John Lennon was trying to point out.
I sold my home and most of my possessions, left my career, and I departed for the trail with the hope I would find some insight, some greater meaning and purpose to my personal journey within the world I inhabit. All my life I have yearned for answers to those grand eternal questions about life. Given my personal experience of true human nature, one of my questions is this: Why is that higher nature not reflected in our shared societal reality? What is holding us back? I highly recommend watching the free internet documentary Thrive. It will help add context and additional insights and research resources to my presentation. http://www.thrivemovement.com/the_movie END OF PRESENTATION NOTES
Trek For Truth
So I intend to continue walking my path with conscious intention. The “world that has been pulled over my eyes” no longer holds precedence in my heart, nor in my sense of self. What is real is Nature, that which naturally flows from Universal Creation. This obviously includes Human Beings and the Unifying Spirit which pulses through our veins and animates our bodies. That which honors our natural unity and divinity is real. That which artificially separates us in mind and action is not real…it is not organically of us, not originally present within our infinite and eternal nature. That which separates us only appears real as long as we invest our powers of creation in those illusions. Nothing, absolutely No Thing is separate from all of creation. The illusion of separation is what keeps our inner and outer conflicts alive. When we re-member who we truly are, infinite, eternal, creative and divine beings, we begin to experience ourselves as that.
That will be a central message of my attempt at communication (to commune – to bring together) on this Trek for Truth. At the same time I will point out the clear and varied examples that perpetuate this persistent illusion of separation. Wherever one being appears to have greater value and power than another, it is a clear and certain indicator that the illusion is present. Some of the topics I will discuss will appear dark and negative. But I will address them from the perspective that if one refuses to recognize darkness then it is difficult to move toward the light. And there is a great deal of apparent darkness in our personal and collective realities. Deceit and manipulation are prevalent themes in the human experience here on our Earthly home. This theme has been present and pervasive for a very long time. Is it time for the apocalypse, a personal and in turn collective awakening? From all external indicators it would certainly appear so.
I believe deeply in the unlimited nature of human potential. My 6/14/14 blog post on my personal website (http://www.journeythrulyme.com/Dormant Seeds and Spiritual Germination) referenced that feeling, in that perhaps all these seemingly negative stimuli are at a deeper level pushing us to remember the depth and breadth of our innate potential. That knowing about the divine nature of Human Beings is where I am trying to focus my daily and hourly attention, and will be a recurring theme of my messages during the Trek for Truth.
Often of late I’ve pondered how I would answer the question of why I am choosing to take what appears to be such a radical turn in my life path. Mostly I’ve thought about answering that question for those closest to me…my son, my family and my soul friends. Perhaps I can answer this way:
What would you do if you became aware that one of your neighbors was intentionally poisoning another neighbor? Say perhaps you witnessed him/her sneak over in the middle of the night and spray toxic chemicals on your unknowing neighbor’s vegetable garden. What would you do? Would you warn your neighbor of this violation, this crime and very real threat to their health and well-being? Could you possess this knowledge and stand by passively and just go on about your business? What would you do with the knowledge?
While this is a hypothetical scenario, it relates to a very real dilemma for me. You see, after literally decades of research in a quest for answers as to why this world seems to be in such a state of turmoil, I have come to a place of understanding shared by millions of people all across the globe. There is a very organized and dedicated group of individuals who possess great resources and are intentionally manipulating and attacking the health and well being of the majority of human beings on this planet. Some label the energy these beings embody as evil. Most cannot fathom the destructive actions that these people undertake on a daily basis. Their actions and motivations are so far from our own, that we cannot conceive that people of means and position could behave in such a cruel manner. Below is a short video I recorded about one key aspect of this dynamic.
The examples of this destructive (selfish, greedy, manipulative, egocentric, fearful, etc.) behavior are present throughout recorded history. Even mainstream histories (those written by the people in power) are rife with endless conspiracies motivated by selfish (that which is rooted in the belief in separation) motivations. Any serious examination of the historical record clearly reveals that it is a story of one conspiracy after another. So who benefits if most people are programmed to perceive the phrase “conspiracy theory” as indicative of pure fantasy and delusion? Conspiracy fact is abundant and hidden in plain sight for any serious seeker. Official histories, pronouncements and “news” are so rife with distorted information, misdirection and outright fabrications that an earnest researcher begins to realize these stories are not random occurrences, rather carefully constructed narratives (AKA propaganda) with a clear objective.
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”
Edward Bernays – considered the father of modern propaganda AKA public relations
This negative energy, this pattern of sociopathic behavior that benefits the few at the expense of the many, seems to date back as long as there have been “rulers”, or “authorities” (interesting words and concepts). Each of us holds aspects of this energy within our own psyche. Ever wonder why that is? Most of us don’t appear to be born that way. So is it a learned behavior? And who benefits from ensuring that the lessons of self-interest are ingrained in us from infancy? Survival of the fittest, dog eat dog, only the strong survive, natural selection, winners and losers, getting ahead, and on and on and on.
Deep down inside I know human beings are so much more by nature than what we’ve been led to believe. I am far from alone in this instinct. Millions upon millions of others hold the same knowing…and more are coming to that realization in each and every moment. One tool I use for my own discernment for potential manipulative information is to question whether a teaching, meme and/or point of view is enriching, empowering and unifying, or does it diminish, belittle and separate human beings even in very subtle ways.
There is without question an awakening taking place. One definition of the word Apocalypse is a revelation of truth after a long period of deception. Not many I know would perceive that as a negative occurrence. But is it not understandable that those few who thrive on deceit and manipulation would desperately desire to avoid an apocalypse at all costs? And the examples are many of the mind control memes and language manipulation that has been programmed into us since childhood. The more examples you begin to see, the less you can hold onto the temporarily comforting, albeit delusional notion that these are explained by mere coincidence.
I believe World War III began close on the heels of World War II, and it continues to this day. But it was never a “shooting war” in the traditional sense. It is a war on the natural expansion of human conscious. It is a war waged to stop the inevitable remembering of our true essence – infinite and eternal spiritual beings having a physical experience that only appears finite and temporary when viewed from a restricted perspective. World War III is an all out assault on our bodies, our minds, our emotions and our realization of the truth of our existence. That realization means the end of control and manipulation by external authorities. It means the end of unconsciously feeding the parasite that consumes the energy of the emotions of anger, shame, guilt, revenge…the energy of fear. The parasite feeds off our collective fears, and like all parasites its survival depends upon its ability to trick you into providing the food it needs. Those emotions, held for extended periods, literally drain you of your own life force.
While I don’t resonate with all of the perspectives of an esoteric researcher, author and speaker by the name of David Icke, I very much agree with the observations and conclusions he expresses in this 10 minute clip from one of his presentations. It covers much of what I am trying to convey in this essay: https://www.youtube.com/David Icke: The Vibrational Change
My experience with Lyme disease was in many ways my graduate school during my lifelong esoteric education. I can’t summarize several years of exhaustive research and personal experience here, but my conclusions about this epidemic only reinforced the information and puzzle pieces that had already come to my awareness in the years prior to my illness. Lyme disease is an engineered, as in intentional, epidemic. As is AIDS, many forms of cancer and so many other diseases, particularly the highly profitable chronic diseases. Some estimates now calculate that as much as 75% of our annual healthcare costs are expended on chronic illnesses. These are maladies that have no defined cause and no cure…but do lead to a lifetime (albeit a diminished and shortened one) of very profitable palliative drug care.
Let’s consider that the same wealthy monopolists who supported the rise of the American Eugenics movement accelerating in the latter half of the 1800’s, engineered, funded and still control the current western allopathic medical education, research and disease management system. Many perceive our “healthcare” system as broken. Do a little research on the players of the past and present and you may conclude that it is actually working exceedingly well – you’ve just been confused (deceived) as to its true purpose. After my own research and experience, I find it no coincidence that the first U.S. cases of Lyme disease, AIDS and West Nile Virus all occurred within a few miles of Long Island, New York. Why is that? Why aren’t questions like that being explored in the mainstream media, and mainstream science and medicine? Why did Lyme disease, the admitted fastest growing infectious disease in the US, receive a paltry $9 million in federal allocations in 2012 fiscal year? Why did it suddenly emerge out of Lyme, CT in 1975? Why is the science proving its capacity to become chronic being actively denied, ignored and suppressed? Why are Medical Doctors afraid to even discuss these topics, and instead consistently deny treatment and turn patients away?
“I don’t want a nation of thinkers, I want a nation of workers.” — John D. Rockefeller, American Industrialist (1839 – 1937)
If you do look into these topics, and particularly the facts of the deliberate design and creation of the big business, for-profit western medical monopoly, you will quickly find the depth of the involvement of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. and his son and namesake, John Jr. The historical myth is that the Rockefeller monopoly (Standard Oil) was broken up by federal legislation. In actuality through political maneuvering (money), several legislative actions allowed that family and many others (the Carnegie dynasty is also heavily involved) to derive even greater wealth, influence and secrecy through the creation of the private foundation system. You’ll discover influence peddling, coercion and tax avoidance were taken to new heights after these monopolists were supposedly thwarted by “our” federal public servants. For an overview, here is a brief podcast that covers this history: Rockefeller Medicine. I also recommend the 1995 book entitled Murder By Injection by Eustace Mullins.
I no longer subscribe to the “accidental view” of history. From close examination it seems to me and many others that the historic ruling class that extends beyond national boundaries have for centuries been creating and manipulating world events to their benefit. Is it really so hard to believe that people with enormous resources would collude to orchestrate politics, science, economics, religion, business, industry, and mass culture to maintain and enhance their positions of power?
A couple of quotes from Woodrow Wilson come to mind here. He was arguably the man who helped facilitate a bloodless coup d’état when he accepted the support of parasites like J.P. Morgan and Jacob Schiff in his presidential campaign in return for signing the Federal Reserve Act into law after it was passed by a lame duck Congress on December 23rd, 1913 (after many representatives had already traveled home). That period also saw the creation of the IRS and the implementation of an unconstitutional, non-apportioned income tax (here is a link to an excellent documentary that focuses on these two interlocked developments From Freedom to Fascism). Below are two quotes from a man with a unique perspective on world events:
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world – no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” ― Woodrow Wilson
“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” ― Woodrow Wilson
You can call me crazy, and many will. But I am far from alone in my point of view that virtually every major war, every major economic collapse, and every major epidemic over at least the past 100 years has been intentionally created by this global cabal of sociopaths intent on feeding upon the created misery of humanity. But they only succeed with our full cooperation. They only succeed through deception. As long as we buy into the limited, broken, less than version of what it is to be a human being, and continue to cede our divine power to external authorities and perceived authoritarian saviors, we feed the parasite. We are so much more than what we’ve been led to believe. But as in the proverbial story of the horse that is led to water, only we decide if we drink. If you’d like to do a little reading to better understand why I’ve come to such seemingly radical points of view, I highly recommend two books to start: Tragedy and Hope (first published in 1974) by Prof. Carroll Quigley, and None Dare Call It Conspiracy (first published in 1972) by Gary Allen. While they won’t delve into all the topics I’ve broached, they will, via meticulous research and citation, reveal much about the identity, motivations and actions of some of the global players/parasites I reference. Seriously, put yourself in their shoes for a moment. If you wished to maintain and expand your long held positions of wealth, power and dominance would you prefer?
- A vibrantly healthy, highly self aware, well informed, educated, abundant and self-reliant populace? or;
- A chronically ill, drugged, distracted, stressed, dumbed down and financially dependent populace?
There’s an old adage that the greatest deception the d-evil ever concocted was making you believe he didn’t exist. The energy of separation generates evil (self-centered) behavior. Yes, these individuals may be evil according to our organic moral compass and our natural capacity for empathy and compassion. But these people are most certainly not stupid. Why has there seemingly always been a ruling class…Priest/Kings and royal families, aristocrats and despots, monopolists, robber barons and predatory financiers? Aren’t these questions obvious? If you set aside the old answers (programs) about human nature and the law of the jungle, don’t you want a more plausible answer to questions such as: Why is the world the way it is? What is your nature before you are conditioned and trained? Who is the author of your life? Who is your authority and why?
A Long Walk
So after sharing all this, how does any of it relate to my decision to attempt to walk across the United States (and maybe back again)? Why does that mean anything to me? Honestly I don’t fully know. Nothing else but going on a long walk and meeting lots of good people and sharing what I can about these topics makes any sense to me right now. I am convinced my family, friends and neighbors are being intentionally poisoned, infected, deceived, robbed and conned. And so are countless innocent human beings all over the world. I can’t just go back to sleep and ignore that fact. Perhaps a few people are destined to meet me on this trek and we will both benefit in some way. My decision in 2013 to leave my old life and spend five months in the mountains and small towns along the Appalachian Trail (AT) did not make rational sense. But my gut, my inner knowing, kept calling. And it continues now, even while my ego calls out in fear and anxiety.
When I was hiking day after day on the AT and pondering what I would do next, I kept having an image of Forest Gump come to mind. I thought about the sequence where he just runs and runs for no apparent reason, month after month all across the U.S. until he has a long beard and a following of people wondering what his running means. Run Forest, run. And I thought, Walk Logan, walk. And talk…and write. And tell some neighbors that there are some sociopaths intentionally poisoning their garden, and their water, and their air, and their minds. And re-mind them that they are immeasurably valuable and powerful human beings who deserve a life of joy, health, abundance, peace, compassion and creativity. We can do so much better than this. Suffering and deprivation are not inevitable. We are enough, and there is enough for all of us. We are infinite beings, and our humanity calls us forward to be more. The sky is not the limit, and be wary of those who try to convince you otherwise. Fear can be infectious, but it is curable. Here’s to pushing through old boundaries toward new discoveries.
PS – If you’d like a bit more of an insight into my background, my Appalachian Trail experience, and the research and insights that drew me to this Trek for Truth project, below is part one of a two part video I recorded for a presentation I gave in January of 2014.
