A Completely Different Perspective On Trump’s Presidency (This Will Make You Think)

Note: This article was written by Bernhard Guenther and originally appeared on Collective Evolution. I don’t usually re-share articles, but this article is phenomenal and so necessary.

Considering the hype around the latest celebrity statement about Trump by Meryl Streep and the upcoming ritual to put “the man” into “power” officially (which will most likely result in protests by moral, upstanding patriotic citizens), I thought to repost what I wrote (trigger warning!) right after the election.

Hint: This is going to come down to you, and it’s deep!

Here’s the thing from a basic Jungian perspective: Trump is your shadow, America, a reflection of your unconscious, especially concerning people who identify themselves as Leftist, Liberals, and Progressives, their own shadow which they never deeply acknowledged, and hence project outwardly at the “other side” in their “holier than thou” political correct attitude, over-estimating themselves and dreaming to be awake.

The self-inflation, narcissism, greed, the “bigger is more,” the “quantity over quality,” the entitlement, the hypocrisy, the drive for recognition and fame, the “best” in the world, the bully, the “money can buy everything,” the racism and sexism, etc…..or anything else you despise in the man….it’s all you, buried in your unconscious. It’s also the shadow side of the “American Dream” and obviously reflected in America’s Imperialism.

It’s About You!

Anyone who identifies him/herself as “Liberal,” “Progressive,” “Leftist,” and projects disgust, hate, or anger on to this man, (really anyone who is triggered/irritated by Trump beyond political identifications), or reacts with fear, sadness, worry: you are looking at your own shadow and it won’t go away if you keep up with these reactive projections and look for external solutions or a different “leader” to follow or project your “hope” onto while still believing in the religion of government (which feeds off of the polarization and perpetuates separation consciousness) based on illusory tribal/national identification and adherence to/worship external authority constructs.

Moreover, nothing will change but will in fact reinforce the schism as long as you keep identifying with any side because it defines the other side. One cannot have the one without the other as long as you feed and play into this game of fabricated false duality which is exactly how Empire controls you – all entirely based on illusory socially/cultural conditioned identifications and beliefs which you are so attached to and define yourself by. It’s the basis for population control and social engineering, reinforcing the Stockholm Syndrome and “invisible” slavery/prison out of your own “free will.”

But here’s the real “shocker.” Trump is actually your “teacher,” for he creates more friction and shadow triggers, hence more potential to wake people up from an esoteric alchemical perspective (Clinton would have been the sleeping pill for most people, even though she’s the more dangerous psychopath, hidden behind the mask of a “woman”), but only if people take back their projections and engage in some serious and sincere soul searching cutting through their programed socially/cultural conditioned identifications to ignite the alchemical fire within.

Any negative reactive emotion you have towards the “man” (including his silly tweets) or his supporters is a sign of giving away your power and life energy (literally). It shows you where you work is when it comes to basic Jungian psychology of shadow work until you can come to a place of non-reactive zero-point consciousness rising above fabricated duality and tuned into your true inner power and guidance, connected to Spirit and the wholeness of nature: a sovereign embodied Individual.

If you do that sincerely and go deep, you will finally stop believing in and supporting this religion of government (that was never, ever in place for the people and never, ever can give you true freedom), and realize that it was never about Trump, Clinton, Sanders or any other authority statist puppet to begin with, stop this silly idea of “voting for change” and fragmented mechanical/programmed search for “external solutions” and “leaders, worship of authority and then really, really question everything you believe in and have been told/taught, and most of all drop and let go of your identification, which just feeds the polarization. This the path towards a true shift and evolution of consciousness. Anything else is just going in circles, re-arranging the furniture and tapestry of your prison cell (you are not aware of), instead of breaking out of it.

And that is not a comfortable (internal) process at all for it entails utter disillusionment and taking full responsibility without blame and externalizing. Nobody can do it for you and nobody is going to save you. It takes tremendous humility and sincere self-honesty facing the lies within, which make up your conditioned personality, which is not who YOU truly ARE but mistake for you real Self. It’s much easier to project outwardly, protest, look for the next leader and keep up with the futile idea of fragmented “activism,” new “systems” and “external solutions,” all based on the fragmented male aspect of consciousness (your inner unconscious tyrant projected on Trump) removed from the wholeness of the feminine aspect of consciousness (nothing to do with gender) that is tuned into the wholeness of nature.

In the end, America got the president it “deserved” and when you act like slaves, looking for a leader/savior to follow, you get masters…and always will, as long as you support and believe in the religion of government, regardless what system is implemented. Also “democracy” seems like such a good idea until you don’t get your way, right? (oh, I forgot, it was the Russians messing with the election…right, of course….whoever you want to blame and keeps you from looking deeply within into your own shadow).

That’s just on the surface 3D level. From a hyperdimensional perspective, all the anger and disgust, anything projected on the “man,” the polarization, protests, revolts, hypocritical speeches of statist celebrities about “empathy,” “equality,” and “protecting truth,” engaging in this unconscious shadow dance and reacting mechanically (and programmed) is exactly what the occult Matrix overlords and Empire want you to do and feed upon. In fact, that frequency is all they are after for it strengthens your slavery and sustains them, no matter what puppet they put in place for you to identify with or project anger on. It’s the old game of divide and conquer…and the Matrix has you.

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves. There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. Everyone carries a Shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside as fate.”

~ Carl G. Jung

—————-

“At every turn, the synthetic culture of Empire implores us to throw our hearts and minds into unconscious polarization. It wants us to radicalize ourselves to either patriot or terrorist, believer or atheist, white or black, liberal or conservative, strong or weak, and then embark on an endless crusade to reform, condemn, or destroy the other side. This one-way polarization renders all participants impotent, regardless of which side they pick. This subtle but devastating trick deactivates our will and we automatically forfeit our capacity to rule ourselves. Lost in unconscious polarization, we serve Empire.

Mass culture is a control mechanism that devalues the individual. It is aimed solely at promoting collectivism. It seeks to enforce the dependence of the individual human on a collective group and the priority of group ideologies over individual life paths. It is, at the base level, the very heart of socialism, communism, fascism and totalitarianism. It employs nationalistic impulses to setup polarities of antagonism that exclusively benefits a set of ruling elites. At the top level, the elites fully comprehend that there are no distinct nations, ideologies or cultural imperatives to speak of. To them, there is only power and no power.”

~ Neil Kramer

“[Look] at what happened in 1914 – or for that matter at all that is and has been happening in human history – the eye of the Yogin sees not only the outward events and persons and causes, but the enormous forces which precipitate them into action. If the men who fought were instruments in the hands of rulers and financiers, these in turn were mere puppets in the clutch of those hidden [hyperdimensional] forces.

When one is habituated to see the things behind, one is no longer prone to be touched by the outward aspects – or to expect any remedy from political, institutional or social changes; the only way out is through the descent of an [embodied] consciousness which is not the puppet of these forces but is greater than they are.”

What Are You Being Distracted From?

I highly encourage you to do this awareness test before reading the rest of the article, as it will give you direct, applicable experience regarding the central theme of this article.

That video is a microcosm of what’s occurring on a collective level.

Distractions small and large, personally and collectively, all work this way. When your focus gets fixated on something, you filter out things that would otherwise be obvious.

It’s the old “Hey look at my right hand!” while the hidden left hand is covertly performing the magic trick.

The petri dish of culture (see what I did there?) we find ourselves in is a grand illusion, or a grand delusion, whose very existence depends on concealing itself behind endless distractions.

Weapons of Mass Distraction

The mainstream media is nothing but fear-porn and heated debates over minutiae designed to program and paralyze our psyches. Television is called “programming” for a reason.

Celebrity gossip is constantly thrown in our faces, like it’s of utmost importance to our lives. This further keeps people’s focus away from what really matters and exhausts energy on utter stupidity.

Sports, instead of being played by adults, have turned into a form of idol worship. Grown men wear the names of other grown men on their backs (jerseys) in a silly externalization of personal power. And most sports fanatics have more passion about other people throwing balls around than they do about their family or their own purpose in life.

Politicians discuss asinine topics instead of what really matters. If they would address the fundamental aspects of society, then real change would take place. But they don’t. A couple essential topics that need to be addressed are energy (which is the foundation of shelter, food, transportation and all human necessities) and the monetary system as a whole (which is fiat currency based on debt and funnels wealth into the hands of a few). But having a serious discussion about clean, free energy, for example, would render any control system obsolete, so that topic is vehemently ignored and suppressed.

Standard education has children memorizing and regurgitating useless facts instead of learning knowledge of self, critical thinking or applicable life skills. John D Rockefeller, who created the general education board for the US in 1902, summed it up when he said “I don’t want a nation of thinkers, I want a nation of workers.” For those who are willing to take an objective look, it’s not the education system, but the indoctrination system, driven by weapons of mass instruction.

Even though we all have access to more information in our pockets than the president of the United States had 30 years ago, most use their smartphones just to take selfies and proclaim to the world every time they step out of their house. Without a foundation of self-mastery, instead of using a smartphone as a tool, you become a slave to the tool.

The Essential Questions

How come very few people even consider the essential questions of life?

Who are we? Where do we come from? What is humanity’s story? What is the nature of reality? How do we interact with reality? Where do our ideas come from?

Why don’t we investigate these fundamental questions first? Wouldn’t it make sense to start there? Isn’t it important to understand the nature of the game you’re playing?

Why aren’t children taught any form of self-mastery? Wouldn’t mindfulness meditation (being able to objectively observe your thoughts and emotions) be useful? Of course it would. That is the foundation upon which any conscious change can be made. Wouldn’t something like yoga, getting in tune with your body, be useful? Wouldn’t breathing practices be useful to learn? I mean, deep breathing can extinguish the flames of anxiety in a matter of seconds. But nope, those things are completely ignored by traditional education.

Why aren’t the most useful skills of being human taught? Survival skills, growing food…etc. Why isn’t personal finance taught? Why do so few people even know what money really is?

Here’s why none of the most important questions never get addressed; because we’re being distracted in every moment. Between education (indoctrination), television, the media, misuse of technology and most adults being dizzyingly busy, the average person doesn’t have the time or energy left to explore the most fundamental questions.

I call this situation “the squeeze.” Resources are limited and economies are manipulated to put more pressure on families, so both parents now have to work to financially sustain the family. This creates a time squeeze in which people are too busy to explore the essential questions of life or even think for themselves. Combine this with omnipresent distractions (aka bread and circuses) and no one ever stops to question the situation in which humanity has found itself.

The term bread and circuses was coined by Roman satirist Juvenal, and it’s defined as “Something, as extravagant entertainment, offered as an expedient means of pacifying discontent or diverting attention from a source of grievance.” Does that sound familiar? The bread and circuses of today (education, media, celebrity gossip, politics, smartphone misuse…etc.) are pacifying your discontent with how blatantly dysfunctional our societal paradigms are. And what grievance is it diverting your attention from? Well, the grievance of knowing in your heart of hearts that there are far better ways of doing things, far more harmonious ways of living and far more that humanity is capable of achieving.

It’s all about distracting people from what really matters. A population can be easily controlled if all they focus on is external, asinine things. The distractions are so intense because once the curtain is pulled back, the powers that (wanna)be are exposed and their house of cards collapses. It’s exactly like what happens in The Wizard of Oz, the seemingly ominous authority figure, once exposed, is nothing but a fearful little man. His power was solely based upon creating fear through deception, and was usurped upon exposure. Once you shine light on cockroaches, they scatter. All it takes is a bit of light to illuminate a whole room. Cast the distractions aside and shine your light.

What Can You Do?

Stop distracting yourself – Turn off the tv, stop watching the news and stop giving your energy to the fabricated illusion.

Focus on yourself – Focusing on yourself isn’t selfish. To be able to serve you must first be fit to serve. You can only give what you’re able to give, so it pays exponentially to make yourself more able. Get in tune with yourself. Go within, meditate, observe your thoughts and emotions, do the inner work, rid yourself of limiting beliefs, let go of trauma you’re holding onto, continuously improve yourself and find/create your purpose. Maximize yourself and you will be of far greater benefit and help to others. If you know your own power, you’re not going to give it away to forces who don’t have your best interest in mind.

Investigate the nature of reality for yourself – Ask yourself the big questions posed above. Be curious, open-minded and entertain any idea without clinging to it. View the world as an idea playground. Do your own research, find a healthy amount of unique data points and form your own conclusions.

Don’t indoctrinate your children – Standard education, particularly in the US, is a massive consciousness-suppressant. And it was designed that way. As epitomized by the Rockefeller quote above, was designed to create obedient workers, not creative, free-thinking individuals. Everyone is a genius in their own unique way, it just takes years of mandatory education to bury it. Find a progressive, alternative school or homeschool your children (but make sure you’re a part of some community if you do this, as socialization is obviously important too).

Create your own culture – Read my article on this, “Stop Consuming Culture and Create Your Own.”

One love.
