The web of pessimism and the hope for the future

“In my work with private clients, certain questions inevitably arise. The questions involve freedom and desire. ‘What is my freedom for?’ ‘What do I want to do with my freedom?’ ‘What do I want to create?’ In whatever form they occur, these are good questions. They lead to new futures.” (The Magician Awakes, Jon Rappoport)
In my private consulting practice, I work with individuals who are:
Searching to discover the most profound version of their future they want;
Or already knowing that, they are on the fence about pursuing such a future;
Or already engaged in inventing that future, they are looking for the best plan to arrive at fulfillment of that future.
—Is the general energy of people rising or falling these days? Is it up or down? Are people more pessimistic than they were yesterday or six months ago?
During my 79 years, I’ve learned a few rock-bottom things about having a life.
One is, the world is increasing arranged so that, once you enter the collective, your fortunes tend to rise and fall based on factors you have nothing to do with. And the collective is a fiction that purports to connect “everything to everything.” The big lie.
People are taught that the country, the planet, the universe is a collective web. You enter at any point, you’re involved. You’re hooked in. Therefore, the overall health and energy of the collective determines your overall health and energy.
And then the self-appointed moralists come in and say, “And this is the way it should be.”
Welcome to psychological and spiritual collectivism.
It’s a ruse.
Your sense of optimism or pessimism is actually based on factors that have far more to do with you than with the (supposed) overall status of the collective.
This is a good thing.
This means you can exercise choice. You can make decisions. You can go in this direction or that direction.
You can affect your own emotions.
Whether today’s hero of the moment rises or falls doesn’t determine your state of mind.
I speak to, and write for, people who aren’t comfortable in the collective. I write for people who stand outside the collective and know it. I write for people who refuse to base their decisions and emotional responses on “everything around them.” I write for people who don’t follow that path.
I know such people are out there. I salute them. I write for them. I address myself to them. Some of them are my clients.
I write for people, for individuals who know they have power, who know they can chart a course that involves their own creative power. I write for people who, sitting on the fence, suspect they can get off the fence and, through imagination, conceive of new lives, better lives, no matter what the collective is doing.
The collective only exists because people buy the delusion that, by passing essentially borrowed cultural messages from hand to hand, “humanity” will rise. This is accomplished, first and foremost, by negating Self.
There is no reason to negate Self.
What do I want? What do I want to do with my freedom? What do I want to create? There is no way to avoid asking those questions. They are eternal.
So why not ask and answer them now?
The term “human potential” has been misused and distorted in a number of ways. First of all, it should be “individual potential.” And it refers to the as yet untapped capacity to invent the future, according to one’s own deep desires.
To say this is a kind of magic is a vast understatement, because when a person does begin inventing that future, things change.
The responses of the body change.
Eventually, people show up who want to make a contribution to that developing future.
None of this has anything to do with the collective.
Which is exactly as it should be.
There are ancient spiritual traditions on Earth—IF YOU STRIP AWAY THEIR METAPHYSICAL CLAP-TRAP DESIGNED TO ENSNARE PEOPLE—that suggest individuals creating their own futures is an essential core of life.
But the whole point is Now. Individuals creating their best futures Now.
This is a physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, creative undertaking.
