This is about alternative media and there are some FREE FILMS to watch further down. Check out the films and my partners’ websites!
It’s important to decide for ourselves and choose what we fill our minds with. We should know from history and what we’ve learned about human psychology, that ideas can be communicated to us in subtle ways, and because we tend to copy each other, through mass cultural memes, to make us buy things, or ‘buy into’ beliefs and behaviors that might feel good at the time, but are no benefit and even harmful.
Once upon a time, the media was limited to one radio station and then one TV station. Now there’s many sources and people can, and have, set up lots of alternative media sources, often related to their own interest groups, beliefs and interests. So there are lots of alternatives and we’ve got more choice.
“Instead of waiting for our attention to be pulled towards something unusual, we can set out frameworks for ‘directing’ our attention in a conscious manner.” ― Edward de Bono
We can choose what to watch, read, listen to and believe. There’s infinite room for new ideas, we can make our own decisions, we don’t all need to be consuming and talking about the same things, and we can have our minds open to other perspectives.
“All the world’s a stage… and one man in his time plays many parts” ~ William Shakespeare
We don’t have to think of our personality or identity and other people’s as something that is too completely obvious or stereotypical or fixed either, because if we think about it our personalities and the things we do, changes throughout our lives, and our moods and behavior change even throughout the day. We can see ourselves as just a normal person, or a human with many aspects, always growing.
“In the most ordinary terms, egolessness is a flexible identity. It manifests as inquisitiveness, as adaptability, as humor, as playfulness. It is our capacity to relax with not knowing, not figuring everything out, with not being at all sure who we are, or who anyone else is, either.” ― Pema Chödrön
The majority of people are acting unconsciously, or irrationally, all the time in everything they say and do, but they don’t know they are. They think they’ve got reasons for it and they can see other people doing and saying it.
“The biggest problem of the world is not climate change or overpopulation. The biggest problem is poor thinking.” ~ Edward de Bono
The more conscious you are or become, or the more insight and awareness you get, the less dishonest and delusional you are, but the more aware you are all the time of your own, and other people’s dishonesty and delusion, and everything can look more surreal and farcical, about yourself as well as other people, but we don’t have to feel bad either. It’s important not to take ourselves too seriously.
“The more real you get, the more unreal the world gets” ~ John Lennon
Positivity, Negativity and The Truth.
It’s part of being positive to be truthful. It’s wise, and conscious, aware and insightful, not cynical or negative, to be able to see through dishonesty and the way things are being falsely marketed.
“It is easier to fight for one’s principles than to live up to them.” – Alfred Adler
People are overly focused on the latest problems in the news and their opinions about everything and addicted to the drama of it and self-importance of it. We have everything we need to solve all of the problems already. Why would you need to cause a mass demonstration or go and get a PhD in overanalyzing the problem, when the simple, practical solution is staring you right in the face.
Truth and honesty and self-honesty are more loving than being in denial or falsely positive, Because we can’t get over problems until we can see what those problems really are, but then more importantly, it’s about taking action on it and implementing it to change it.
“To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong” ~ Joseph Chilton Pearce
Everyone is trying to meet their own needs all the time, and our ability to reason is undermined by the way human psychology works. It’s like a computer recording information, designed to help us meet our human needs while we’re alive, and it’s not as sophisticated or reliable as we might ‘like’ to think. This is due to cultural norms, but also because we have all kinds of psychological mechanisms and cognitive biases at play.
“It isn’t ‘what’ people think that is important, but the ‘reason’ they think what they think.” – Eugene Ionesco
Instead of us thinking that we’re doing and saying things for all different kinds of rational reasons, the two main real, irrational reasons, why we do things are, because it makes us feel better, and because of the influence of other people.
‘Higher consciousness’ is when you can see these things happening in the way we act and interact, and why you, yourself (first and foremost) and other people are ‘really’ doing things.
“In most of our human relationships, we spend much of our time reassuring one another that our costumes of identity are on straight.” ~ Ram Dass
There’s all different reasons why it can be hard for anyone to be truthful about who they are, or what they know, or believe, or the way they feel, that they know might be different or not accepted by others.
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind” ~ Dr Seuss
Most of us have learned to ‘fit in’ and negotiate life in a variety of unconscious, superficial or desperate ways, but taking an interest in human psychology and social dynamics brings these things more into conscious awareness.
“The vast majority of people conform to whatever is normal for the time.” ~ Robert Greene
Our quiet connection with God or the universe and our own happiness is more precious than anything else while we’re alive, so it’s more important to be concerned about what we learn ourselves, than what we tell, say or explain to other people.
Beyond Off Grid – Return To The Old Paths.
This is a brand new film just released from Beyond Off Grid, and they let me be one of the first to see it and watch it for free.
It’s a really lovely, interesting, intelligent film that shows the striking parallels between the events leading up to the fall of the Roman Empire, and current modern society. But unlike some other conscious films which end with a vague idea of what we should do, they offer a wealth of powerful answers and you can learn a lot more about their philosophy on the website.
I think a lot of the Beyond Off Grid community identify with the ‘Christian Agrarian’ belief. You can look that up, or you could just see for yourself what their approach is and how they do things.
Jason Matyas and the Beyond Off Grid community can teach you pretty much everything there is to know about self sufficient sustainable living, homesteading, prepping, homeschooling, community living, natural health, and the natural family.
The Beyond Off Grid film is only $10 to buy and it’s really cool! It’s more than worth it! You can Watch the Film Preview here And/or you can take their Summit Online Training Course $147 on Special Offer here! Or The Summit Event Video Course on Special Offer $197 here! If you can make the money and time for it, I’m sure it would be more than worth it long term, if you want to learn everything you can about self sufficiency.
