False Flag

In December 2012 the media reported the deaths of twenty students and six staff members at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT.  Supposedly a twenty year-old, carrying more weapons that is physically possible, walked into the school and began shooting people.  I don’t watch media, but I remember being intrigued by a clip I saw on FaceBook. I watched media reports, which I don’t remember accurately, but the gist was that early media reports from a news helicopter showed a man being captured in the woods outside the school.  The media also reported another suspect being apprehended in front of the school.

However, within 24 hours the reports all changed to saying that the 20 year-old that had done the shooting had committed suicide in the building.  What was going on?  I continued to follow the story and watched a government expert on these types of actions analyze the reports in a detailed 60 minute commentary.  He is the one that pointed out that the weapons that the media claimed the young man carried in would actually be too heavy to carry.  In addition, the bereavement donation page had been created before the incident (time stamped by Google).  The whole incident got even more bizarre when I found out that in the movie, the Dark Knight, there is a scene showing a map with only one world written:  Sandy Hook.  I didn’t believe the YouTube, so I bought the movie and confirmed it.

Just today I found out, via the Official FBI Crime Statistics page, that the FBI claims that no murders happened in Newton, Connecticut in all for 2012.  Interesting, eh?

I was personally triggered by the Sandy Hook “shootings”.  I mention in the My Mother and Me chapter of my book, Deconditioning Ground, (pg 31) that this was the month that I uncovered a new series of repressed memories.  I didn’t realize the memories where governmental abuse until later in the month, but this was the trigger for those memories to surface.  Since repressed memories are a little surreal, and as unbelievable as the Sandy Hook Hoax, this demonstration of government deception was critical in my waking up and being able to release the beliefs that had been chaining me (pg 35 in the book).

These types of operations are called false flag operations.  It is been proposed by some that the reason that these deceptions are so obvious is that they are designed to wake us all up.  I write about it here, because I am encouraging everyone to be aware of what is going on in the United States.  I hold our situation with curiosity.  The actions of part of our government is in conflict with our constitution.  However, our government is a part of All that Is.  The government is not in control of my safety or me, yet I think there is cause to be wary.  I am aware of the risk of staying here while this situation (and I don’t even know what the situation truly is) continues.  I ask myself frequently, “Is it time to leave the country?”  and “What will it take for America to wake up and take personal responsibility for themselves?”  and “What can I do to contribute to more awareness?”

TESLI is all about fostering greater awareness in people.  The answers are within and I like it when people use their own inner knowing to decide what is right for them and right action in general.  Being in a country where we are fed lies, it is even more important for us to rely on our own knowing.  When I asked the president to investigate this further, via his White House contact page, I never got a response.


Leveraging the Media

In my Pharmacology of Addiction class we recently studied the history of inhalant use.  Before 1959 there was no media mention of sniffing glue.  That year a report of several children in Arizona and Colorado being arrested for intoxication from smelling glue was made in the Denver Post.  This article included detailed information on how the glue was inhaled and the effects.

Within the next year Denver police, who had never heard of deliberate glue inhalation, had investigated around 50 cases.  By 1961, they were seeing 30 cases a month of glue sniffing and that year they arrested 278 people.  The publicity of the media, and the dire warnings they were broadcasting, had the effect of increasing curiosity and the spread of the glue inhalation trend.  Indeed, by 1962 the Hobby Industry Association of America invested $250,000 to combat the spread of glue sniffing.  This of course did not slow down the trend.

Now, why can’t we do this with meditation?  Certainly tales of the mind and body bliss experienced in the jhanas should be sufficient to lure people into meditative concentration.  The ancient masters of China used this technique to obtain internal art students.  Demonstrations of great power and the promise of secret techniques are always sure to hook people.

Yet, I never hear people talking about the absolute blissful states that can be obtained in meditation.  Perhaps this is because people dedicated to the path see the bliss as a consolation, but not really anything to lust after.  However, I’d much rather see people approaching meditation with wrong motivation than going after an addictive drug with the same motivation.  The truth is the practice will weed out people with wrong motivation and/or convert people to truly seeking a spiritual lifestyle.

Indeed, most meditation instructions fail to really discuss the stages of meditation.  People begin to meditate without having a clear vision of what they are doing, how the practice changes the mind, and at what stage they can expect bliss to arise.  I know that I decided to meditate because it was part of the Twelve Steps.  I continued to do it because it was part of the Noble Eightfold Path as well as Tibetan Lam Rims.

I think we are seeing this with Yoga.  In record numbers people are practicing yoga and most of them have no idea what they are doing.  Actually they know what they are doing, but it is not the original intention of the practice.

In Tibetan Buddhism, yoga is a secret teaching.  After 20-25 years of study one graduates from the open or sutra teachings and then is taught yoga and other secret subjects in small private classes.  Now, we have people practicing these deep methods with rarely a clue to what they can really do.  I love it!  Certainly, meditation is similar.  Many people start doing it, like me, without really a clue to why or what.  I only knew it was something good for me.  Perhaps we can be more vocal about the bliss in order to attract more people?
