Transcending the sense of hopelessness

There is a certain energy, a certain state of consciousness, that has crept into the American collective consciousness now for some years. It is a certain sense of being overwhelmed, not being able to see a way out, not being able to see what can be done about the problems that seem to be getting more and more serious, with no end in sight.

There are Russians who were leaving Russia because they did not want to fight in Putin’s war. One of these people said that his reason for leaving was that they could not do anything about their own country. They had tried but nothing worked. This is, of course, a defeatist attitude. Many, many Russians have this after so many years of the Soviet Union, and Putin has made use of this to make it seem even more impossible for them to change the country. That is why so many have left.

Yet this kind of defeatist attitude is not a traditional American mindset. America traditionally has more of the can-do attitude: “Yes, we can do this, we can overcome this obstacle, we can move forward, we can clear this problem.” More and more Americans are starting to drift into this sense of hopelessness. They sense that there is nothing that they can do to change things. You have the saying in America “You can’t fight city hall,” and many people are starting to feel that also about the federal government. This is, of course, not constructive in a democracy in general, but certainly not in America, which has such a tradition for being innovative, for transcending problems, for experimenting with new things and always finding a way around the obstacles. There are lower energies that are invading people’s minds and giving them this sense of hopelessness that leads them to feel anger and frustration. They are looking for someone to blame. They are looking for a scapegoat.

Donald Trump actually did more than any single person in recent years to spread this sense that Americans cannot do anything about certain issues. From even when he ran for President, he talked about the deep state, the swamp, like there was some big, unseen government entity that nobody could do anything about. He promised to do something about it if he got elected. But when he got elected, well, what did he actually do?

The essence of conspiracy theories

Well, what could he do? He could have focused on some real, practical problems, and he did to some degree. But he could not do anything about this unknown entity that does not really exist except in people’s minds. But what did you then see when he did not win the election? Well, he blamed it on this unseen entity, this deep state, this system that had stolen the election away from him. Many of those who followed him, they took in this energy of the hopelessness, and therefore they are still, many of them, in this state of anger, blaming their own government. They do not really know who they are blaming. Certainly, the Democrats and Antifa, and the current President becomes an outlet. But if they really thought about it, they could not really define who they are blaming, who is the deep state.

This is the essence of many conspiracy theories. There is this secret society that is running things behind the facade. But the nature of a secret society is that it is secret, it is unseen. How can you ever come to see it? How can you ever do anything about it? Which is precisely why conspiracy theories are made up, so that they can make people feel hopeless. Discouragement is the greatest tool in the devil’s toolkit, and many Americans have become discouraged.

It would be better that people directed their anger against the power elite, demanded changes to many of these systems, and realized that this must go beyond the political divide because neither the Republicans nor the Democrats alone can do anything about this. It requires an entirely new approach that crosses the divide in the political spectrum, because that divide is created and magnified by the power elite. 

America is, despite the many problems, not on the brink of disaster. America is moving forward towards the Age of Higher Awareness. This can be seen in many different areas, with many new innovations, many new thoughts, many people who are opening their minds to new ideas. America is not a lost cause. The situation in America is not hopeless. But unfortunately many Americans cannot see this because they suffer from a condition that we might call the internet addiction.

Addiction to the websites that lower your energies

What happens is that many Americans (and, of course, many people around the world) have gotten so used to going on the internet and locking in to pages that give them something that stimulates their minds. When their minds are stimulated, they release energy through their subconscious minds, and this gives them a certain pleasurable sensation. Unfortunately that light often goes to lower  forces, but the feeling of energy moving out of the mind is much the same, or at least close to, what you feel when you are co-creating. This can give people some sense of pleasure, even some sense of meaning, for they are doing something. But what you can see in many people is that this has become obsessive-compulsive. This has become an addiction. It is not just a matter of pornography. It is also a matter of going on, for example, conspiracy websites or other websites that present this doom-and-gloom picture that there are so many problems, there are all these things going on, and there is nothing you can do about it. You sit there, you are stimulated by all of this information, and you feel the light released through your mind. Then after it is released, you feel a low. Then in your daily life you feel a low because you are depleted of energy. You think you have to go on that website again and read some more so you can again have this sense that at least something is happening.

This has become an addiction for many, many Americans and, of course, people around the world who have to go on these websites that lower your energies. Center in your heart, feel: “Does it raise my energies? Does it lower my energies?” If it lowers the energies, then do not partake in it, break yourself from this. You have this overall sense that nothing can be done, but when the energy is forced out of your subconscious mind, you feel you are doing something. You do not connect that the low you feel later was caused by the fact that the energy was released in an unbalanced manner. People keep doing this day after day, hour after hour, taking in all of this stuff, listening to the radio, watching TV, where they are again stimulated with all of this negativity, all of these problems. They become addicted to it.

There are people who are addicted to certain television channels, certain radio programs, where you have these hosts that promote all of these conspiracy theories, negative things, and then sell their products to people who are scared into this defeatist state of mind, thinking the world is going to come to an end next week so they better stock up on all of these supplies. This is an entire industry in the United States, and the more aware people need to come to the realization: “But this doesn’t really do anything for me. I just feel worse and worse when I go on these websites and take this into my mind. I’ve got to find another way to approach life. I’ve got to find something else.” 

The realistic optimism of higher awareness

You have a movement in the United States where people who are not traditional politicians are running for office. You have several Congress men and women, who have been elected in the last election, who are not what you would call politicians but who are people who decided that they wanted to see if they could challenge the political system and bring something new. There are many, many initiatives, many, many things in the United States that are pointing forward, pulling the nation forward towards the Age of Higher Awareness. It is by no means a hopeless situation.

The more aware people are not only optimists, we are realists because we see that the manipulators are losing the battle. They always get frantic, they always panic, and then they throw everything at people that they possibly can in this frantic hope that they can turn the situation around, like Putin is doing now in Ukraine. They always panic and think: “If I can just push hard enough, I will win.” Once you have started losing, it is because you were pushing in the first place, and your use of force generated the counterforce that you cannot overcome. So no matter how hard you push, you just generate more of a counterforce, and you cannot overcome it. That is why Hitler was defeated. That is why the Soviet Union was eventually defeated. That is why all of these dictators and warriors that you see in the past, these conquerors, eventually ran out of steam because they ran into the return current from the matter realm, and they could not defeat it.

That is why the more aware people are realists. We know this mechanism, we have seen it over and over again outplay itself, and therefore we know that this planet is moving step by step towards the Age of Higher Awareness. It is a certainty that the golden age will manifest. It is only a matter of when and what exact path it will take before it manifests. Nevertheless, it is a certainty, and all people who are willing can lock in to that realistic optimism and therefore not be so disturbed by these outer events.

It is understandable that they are disturbing to most people, and that there is upheaval in the collective consciousness, and that there are some people even outside America who also feel that sense of hopelessness: “What can be done?” But you can go back in time to any time, any crisis, especially where it is more obvious, and there have always been people who thought: “This is the end. This is hopeless. We cannot get out of this situation. Nothing can be done.” Then still something shifted, the planet moved on, society moved on, and new solutions came into focus. Now nobody remembers what happened in 1929 or in 1914 or in 1939 and all of these crisis points in history. You who are more aware, consider making the choice, making the conscious choice to focus on this, focus on the progress, focus on the positive. 

Things take time. Look at how the war is going, look at how Russia is being pushed back. What happens in the physical octave is a reflection of what happens in the identity, mental and emotional realms. A chain starts in the identity, filters into the mental, then into the emotional and then into the physical. This takes time. Everything works within the constraints of free will and the collective consciousness and people’s individual willingness to raise their consciousness. 

Then, of course, there is the other aspect, which is that everything is a teaching device for having people see the consequences of their actions and the need to change. This again can take time. This war is an opportunity for the Russian people to see something they have not been willing to see, but also for the Ukrainian people and for the people in democratic nations.

Sometimes things need to unfold in the physical for people to see what they have not been willing to see in other ways. When you know this, when you realize this, you can avoid being discouraged and accept that the call does compel the answer, but the answer is not always what you envision or desire to see with the outer mind.

This is a general tendency in the modern world. People, because they all carry a little piece of plastic in their wallets that they can pull out and buy whatever they want and get it right now, have become almost addicted to instant gratification.
