There exists amongst a certain section of the world's population a growing awareness of the existence of a global conspiracy, a conspiracy, that is, being run by secret society initiates, primarily in the economic and political spheres, to impose a totalitarian one-world goverment on the planet, with the resulting society being run for the benefit of the few while keeping the masses of humanity downtrodden and poor.
Many people feel called to contribute in some way to the formidable collective mission of ending this conspiracy, and to the building of a fairer and more equitable world in its wake. But how do we prepare ourselves to join with others in this task? While the details of the conspiracy have been analysed in detail by many writers, few of them seem willing to address the question of what we should do about it and who we need to become in order to successfully play our part in such a movement.
In this posting, written to fill this perceived gap, I will argue that it is both neccessary and possible to transform ourselves inwardly through spiritual practice into vessels more adequate to the task of engaging with the conspiracy and helping end it. Over thousands of years the contemplative traditions of east and west have developed what are sometimes called "technologies of transformation", techniques and practices that have the effect of transforming the individual's body, mind and spirit, making them stronger, spiritually awakened and wiser, all of which are valuable qualities for conspiracy activists to possess.
Exactly what activities the transformed individual will engage in to play their part is for them to decide – the goal of this article is empowering the individual and connecting them to their own inner spiritual resources, where these answers will naturally be found.
And should we all be mistaken and eventually discover that is no conspiracy, then following the program I will suggest and developing the qualities described, is still one of the best uses we can make of our time on this planet.
I am not claiming to possess all of these qualtites myself – I am still working on them as a beginner – but am just putting my views forward for discussion.
The first quality I would argue that we need is strength. Physical strength, energetic strength, emotional strength, mental strength and strength of character all have a synergistic relationship with one another and are essential for conspiracy activists to possess. If the researchers are correct then things could get extremely stressful for us in the years ahead and we should prepare ourselves for a worst-case scenario. We will certainly have to maintain our efforts under trying conditions; we could end up interned in a FEMA camp, living on the streets as fugitives of the system, or embroiled in more manipulated wars. And even if the situation does not get this bad, the global situation will certainly become more stressful for everyone (as the Silent Weapons for a Quiet War document describes) – economically stressful, politically stressful and environmentally stressful (e.g. electromagnetic pollution, GM food, additives in the food and water supply) as the Illuminati turn the screw on the global population.
Fortunately the traditions of the east have developed techniques for increasing the individual's strength in all these ways, the two most important of which, I would argue, are high-level qigong and a meditative practice called Tonglen.
Amongst those not particularly familiar with qigong it is often thought to be a bit of an "airy fairy" practice, working only on the "subtle energy" of the individual, with little effect on them as a whole. Nothing could be further from the truth. Qigong has been used by martial arts practitioners for thousands of years to strengthen their whole being, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually and to make them highly resilient to stress. In particular, a branch of Qigong known as Zhan Zhuang (pronounced "Jam Jong") is very effective in this regard. Zhan Zhuang is a simple practice which can be performed alone and which involves nothing more than standing in special static postures for certain periods of time (it is for this reason that Zhan Zhuang is often simply referred to as "standing qigong" or just "standing"). These postures open the energy channels of the body and allow chi to circulate, healing ailments, removing blockages and strengthening and upgrading the individual's entire energy system as it does so, making them strong and vital.
Zhan Zhuang training also forms the foundation of many of the internal martial arts such as Tai Chi, Ba Gua and Hsing-I, in which it is used to develop internal strength and power, which can be directed toward excellence in the martial arts or just a high-level of health, energy and effectiveness in daily life.
The two Zhan Zuang teachers I would point people toward as exemplars of this practice are Bruce Frantzis and Master Lam Kam Chuen. Frantzis' main book on standing is Opening the Energy Gates of Your Body (1993), in which he outlines a basic program of standing qigong that can be practiced on it's own, followed by several auxiliary practices which increase the effectiveness of the technique.
Master Lam's books on standing are The Way of Energy (1991) and Chi Kung: Way of Power (2003), in which he describes a set of postures to be practiced in a progressive sequence which gradually intensify the flow of energy through the body. All three of these books are highly recommended.
I should point out that some teachers advise that because Zhan Zhuang is quite powerful, it should only be undertaken under the guidance of a qualified instructor in order to prevent problems caused by incorrect practice. Other teachers disagree and say that as long as the student is careful and approaches it gradually, that it is perfectly safe. In any case, as with any spiritual practice, studying with a teacher will always yield faster results than working alone, and this is especially true for any type of qigong.
The second technique I would recommend for increasing strength and forebearance is the Tibetan meditative practice of Tonglen. In this meditation the individual imagines herself to be taking in all the suffering in the world, visualised in the form of thick black smoke; and sending out peace, joy and happiness in response, visualised as a healing white light. This process is synchronised with the breathing, so that suffering is taken in with the in-breath and peace and happiness sent out with the out-breath. More detailed instructions for this practice can be found in the books Eight Steps to Happiness by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso (2003), The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche (2008) and Awaken the Buddha Within by Lama Surya Das (2013).
There are said to be many benefits to Tonglen practice, such as the strengthening of our love and compassion and the accumulation of merit, but Geshe Kelsang Gyatso also specifically states that by performing it we develop a strong mind that can bear adversity with courage (2003). This is obviously a different type of strength to that developed through qigong: it is a strength of the heart and heart-mind, a capacity to continue to love even under the most trying circumstances and to persevere in the toughest of conditions.
Anyone who has read and tentatively accepted the research into the global conpiracy knows that the future is very much an unknown quantity, but potentially a very stressful one. Time spent up front developing physical, emotional and spiritual hardiness is one of the best investments we can make in order to survive the torrid times that may lie ahead.
3. Clarity of Thought, Action and Purpose
The second quallity I would argue we need and which can be developed through spiritual practice is clarity of thought, action and purpose. I would define this quality as being made up of the following elements:
- Lack of magical or sentimental thinking.
- We need to be fearless in basing our worldview on the available evidence, whatever that might be, and to reject theories for which such evidence is lacking, no matter how much we would like them to be true.
- We need to engage in rigorous research, thinking and argumentation in order to win over a sceptical public.
- We need to avoid elevating magical thinking to the status of post-conventional wisdom.
- We need to avoid believing that the Truth Vibrations will take care of everything and that we don't need to act. Similarly, we need to avoid believing that everything will be OK just because we want it to be.
- We need to avoid believing that we can act in isolation and do not need to join with others.
- Lack of shadow elements in our thinking.
- We need to see the facts of the situation and avoid projecting onto it our own predjudices and hang-ups.
- We need to avoid projecting our fears into the situation and seeing things more negatively than they are.
- Intellect refined through higher consciousness.
- We need to develop what Andrew Harvey calls the "illumined intellect" – a mind refined through being immersed in higher states of awareness.
- We need sharp deductive and integrative thinking skills.
- We need the creativity that comes from integrating the subconscious.
- We need the creativity that comes from higher consciousness.
- Ability to intelligently set and achieve outcomes.
- We need the wisdom to decide on the appropriate course of action in any given situation.
- We need to ability to make plans to achieve these goals.
- We need the tenacity to perservere through difficulties in the achievement of these objectives.
- We need insight into the nature of reality.
- We need insight into the workings of the control system.
As far as realising the attributes on this list goes, once again those who know recommend that a good way to start is with a regular meditation program. For example, the Buddhist practice of contemplating one's mortality is very effective at removing magical or sentimental thinking and grounding the individual in the bare facts of any given situation. It also has the effect of making the subconscious conscious, thereby improving psychological integration and creativity. Another training in accepting the world as it is, rather than as we would like it to be, could be Zazen (Zen meditation) or Shi Ne (calm abiding). Tonglen is useful for integrating the shadow and overcoming projections; any concentrative or awareness practice such as the mindfulness of breathing will develop higher states of consciousness and illumine the intellect (Kamalashila, 1997); and any long-term contemplative program will eventually lead to insight into the nature of reality as well as wisdom and an awareness of the best course of action to take in any given situation.
As an adjunctive practice, for those who can afford it, many modern-day Western teachers such as Jack Kornfield also recommend psychotherapy as a valuable element of any system of spiritual growth. As emotional healing takes place during the course of therapy, thought and action naturally become clearer, the shadow integrated and the mind liberated from confused patterns of thought and action, making the individual more effective in their daily activities.
And we should not neglect the physical aspects of thought. Fluoride, chemicals and heavy metals in the water supply, additives in our food and the electromagnetic soup we are increasingly living in all take their toll and make clear thinking difficult. While not all of these can be avoided, there are certain steps that can be taken to mitigate their effects. Fasting and detox programmes (Reid 1989, 2003) and, once again, high-level qigong, can all help to cleanse the body of toxins and restore clarity to the mind.
4. Intuition, Heart Intelligence and Coherence
Another quality that is invaluable for conspiracy activists to possess, in my opinion, is the ability to listen to and heed our own heart-felt intuition. David Icke talks about this a lot. According to him following the guidance of our heart allows us to discern what is true amongst the sometimes conflicting opinions of conspiracy research. It also allows us to determine the course of action most likely to succeed in any given situation.
Icke says that many people coming into incarnation today are doing so with a plan of what they want to achieve during their lifetime, and that connecting with the heart and following it's promptings is the way by which we harmonise ourselves with that plan.
The Institute for HeartMath has also done a great deal of research into what it calls "heart intelligence" and "heart coherence", which it claims allow us to connect to our innate intuition. It defines "heart intelligence" as:
"the flow of awareness, understanding and intuition we experience when the mind and emotions are brought into coherent alignment with the heart." 
The same article defines "coherence" as:
" a logical, orderly and harmonious connectedness between parts." 
It goes on to say that:
"One of the simplest and quickest paths to heart coherence is through intentional positive feelings – compassion, caring, love and other such emotions" 
There are techniques available on the HeartMath website for achieving heart coherence, but to my mind these only work temporarily and are like a sticking plaster. The best way to cultivate these "intentional positive feelings" long-term so that they become an integral part of our life is through regular spiritual practice. In particular the Buddhist tradition has practices to cultivate what are known as the "brahma viharas", or "four sublime abodes": loving-kindness, compassion, empathetic joy and equanimity. In essence, systematically cultivating these qualities involves sitting for meditation and repeating affirmations such as "may all beings be happy, may all beings be peaceful, may all beings be free of suffering" over and over until these positive emotions arise of their own accord and become a natural part of our daily life. For those wanting more detail on this, there are many books that describe practices for cultivating these states, with a particulary good one being Kamalashila's Meditation: The Buddhist Way of Tranquility and Insight. (1997). I would argue that systematically developing these four positive emotions is the most solid way to achieve the heart-intelligence that connects us with our own innate intuition, as well as having a host of other benefits that are beyond the scope of this essay but which are discussed in the buddhist texts.
5. Ethical Action
The ability to act ethically at all times is essential for conspiracy acivists for many reasons. One is simply that it makes us happier people. Another is that by acting mindfully and ethically we minimise karmic entanglements that may complicate our lives and interfere with our effectiveness as activists. It may also be the case that one of the ways the illuminati seek to derail campaigners is by attempting to get them to act unethically, thus creating negative karma that can be exploited in order to bring them down.
The world's contemplative traditions also teach that an ethical lifestyle is a prerequisite for accomplishment in meditation, and thus for achieving heart intelligence and coherence. It is simply not possible, they say, to act unethically in our daily lives and expect to reach higher states of consciousness during our meditation practice.
Ethical training begins by the individual adopting a set of ethical guidelines such as those of the Buddhist tradition and then working on keeping them day-by-day, confessing our faults and recommitting to them each time we fail. The five buddhist precepts are as follows:
- To refrain from taking life
- To refrain from taking the not-given
- To refrain from false or harsh speech
- To refrain from sexual misconduct
- To refrain from using intoxicants
But any system of ethics that follows the golden rule "do unto others as you would have them do unto you", it could be argued, is a good way to begin any program of ethical training.
6. Capacity to Join with Others
The ability to enter into networks of mutually-supportive relationships will be vital to our success in countering the control system. Illuminati documents such as Silent Weapons for a Quiet War talk about how the conspirators work to prevent us coming together to defend ourselves against the conspiracy, when doing so would be beneficial for us.
Spiritual practices such as meditation generally improve the individual's ability to work with others by transforming negative emotions and breaking down the emotional barriers that separate us from one another. Depth-psychotherapy is also a training in relating authentically to another person and in resolving projections and subconscious traumas that sabotage our efforts at interacting with other people, and is recommended for this reason also.
In the transpersonal pyschology movement there are various theories about what the well-functioning person looks like, and how her psychology is organised. Often referred to as the "centaur" the healthy individual is both integrated within herself and effective in the world and her relationships. Becoming "centauric" is therefore the best way for an individual to begin playing her part in ending the global conspiracy. I have written another posting specifically on the centaur (O'Connor, 2012) and while there is some overlap with the current article, it may be valuable for interested readers to work through that essay too.
What I would recommend as a minimum, and what I am working on myself, is a combination of meditation (from any mentioned in the preceeding sections, with particular emphasis on Tonglen), qigong (emphasising Zhan Zhuang) and ethical training, coupled with a sane, balanced and healthy lifestyle. For those with the funds, I would also recommend including depth-psychotherapy in any such program.
This posting has been my attempt to formulate a system of practice beneficial to conspiracy activists in preparing them for the task ahead. I welcome any comments that readers may offer, and will seek to amend this article to take any criticisms into account.
