"Over the long-term, the only way out of the mazes that civilizations create and impose is: individuals need to invent their own realities." ~ Jon Rappoport
If the Individual is an Artist of Reality
Jul 22 2021
"...When the individual believes he is unable to invent his own reality, he accepts what perverse groups design for him. He’s entranced by their symbols and story lines and pretended metaphysical insights and their systems of illumination and their concocted theatrical ceremonies and rituals.
He doesn’t see the art and artifice because he doesn’t see art at all. So he says, “My church, my secret society doesn’t invent anything. My church has DISCOVERED a connection to the ultimate reality, and I’ve joined them.”
...Over the long-term, the only way out of the mazes that civilizations create and impose is: individuals need to invent their own realities.
There has to be an understanding of what this means. No one said improving that understanding would be easy. It requires a completely different kind of education, from the bottom up. It requires, for example, an immersion in IMAGINATION. Without it, individuals are going to opt for their smallest and most parochial conceptions of what reality can be. Individuals are going to invent what they’ve been trained to invent, or they’re going to rebel against the training like common criminals."
