Wake Up to the Truth People!

27 Mar

I have always envisioned this blog as my little internet space for art, poetry and Beauty. I don’t believe in placing focus on ugly aspects of life. They happen anyway, I don’t want to give them power and attention by putting focus on them. Just let them go. let them flow out of you the best that you can. Don’t dwell on it, it truly sours the day. But what is happening all around the globe these days is very hard to ignore and my common daydreamy escapism has failed me for a moment. So, I will take a moment to share my thoughts and here is a vibrant painting of sunflowers to bring some lightness into these dark days of despair.

Vincent van Gogh, Vase with 12 Sunflowers, 1888

One person cannot change the world, but one person can spread the message that might change things, or might change perspectives. An individual cannot fight the system, but what if many individuals from different places suddenly said: hey, wait a minute, this doesn’t seem true to me. And went on to do their own research instead of passively believing the lies that media is here to fed us with.

A person whose books, videos and wisdom have been my source of inspiration these days is David Icke, infamously dubbed ‘conspiracy theorists’, but what is conspiracy anyway? Anything that doesn’t follow the narrative we are suppose to believe. People have been laughing at David Icke for years, well who is laughing now when the things he was talking about decades ago are starting to be our reality. Without a doubt, some of the things he says sound crazy at first, but then it sinks in, you read his books and see how filled with quotes and research they are, you stop to thing and the bubble of lies you were led to believe by the entire society, educational system and media suddenly bursts. Maybe he is funny to some, but the reality we are waking up to these days is far from funny.

George Orwell’s 1984 isn’t a distant literary bad dream, it’s turning into reality with things like these: police in UK using drones to shame the public for going outside. News are being censored and labelled as “disinformation”, oh really? Where’s the freedom and the freedom of speech that we all thing we one hundred percent have, at least in the western countries. I woke up one morning and suddenly I am living in a totalitarian world. What happened? Suddenly the bubble is burst and I feel very disillusioned by the whole situation, not by the disease itself (many diseased, way worse, have plagued the mankind and yet we managed to get to the twenty-first century) but with the exaggerated, over-proportioned, mad, hysterical reaction to things, reaction completely created by the media and fully accepted by the most. This interesting article “Decadent like the late Roman Empire, the West is committing suicide through its irrational response to Covid-19″ shows the full scope of irrationality and stupid decisions taking place. To quote a bit of the article:

A large number of Westerners are happy to accept the suicidal shutting down of their economies to try to halt a virus that predominantly causes old and sick people to die just a few weeks or months before they would have anyway. Just as they enthusiastically endorse proclamations such as that there are 46 sexes, not two; that the flatulence of a cow must be reduced to save a polar bear; that millions of migrants from the Third World must be invited to Europe and assumed to be neurosurgeons; and so on.

The widespread opinion that everything, including economies, must be sacrificed to beat coronavirus is a revival of medieval witch hunts; the sacrifice seems more important than finding an effective method to deal with the problem.

Our increasingly decadent mass culture has gradually become more ideological and openly opposed to the values Western civilization is based upon. And while it boasts of being ‘counter-culture’ and independent, it’s acquired a monopoly over almost all the information channels that determine opinions, including mainstream media and political parties.

If the disease was actually worth the hysteria, I am sure our natural humane rational fear would kick in to save us. I would run fast from syphilis or plague, but a mere flu-type of disease, worth of shutting down the same economy which will feed us later? I don’t think so. And since when did governments and people in power actually cared about us anyway. They care about their agendas and interest. “When something appears out of nowhere and suddenly it’s everywhere, then it’s an agenda”, to quote the wonderfully intelligent and eloquent David Icke. This whole thing is an agenda and if you don’t see that, please take off your blind fold and awake to the truth.

David Icke:

The reason we are so controlled is not that we don’t have the power to decide our own destiny, it is that we give that power away every minute of our lives. When something happens that we don’t like, we look for someone else to blame. When there is a problem in the world, we say “What are they going to do about it”. At which point they, who have secretly created the problem in the first place, respond to this demand by introducing a ‘solution’ – more centralisation of power and erosion of freedom. If you want to give more powers to the police, security agencies and military, and you want the public to demand you do it, then ensure there is more crime, violence and terrorism, and then it’s a cinch to achieve your aims. Once the people are in fear of being burgled, mugged or bombed, they will demand that you take their freedom away to protect them from what they have been manipulated to fear. The Oklahoma bombing is a classic of this kind, as I detail in ..And The Truth Shall Set You Free. I call this technique problem-reaction-solution.

Create the problem, encourage the reaction “something must be done”, and then offer the solution. It is summed up by the Freemason motto ‘Ordo Ab Chao’ -order out of chaos. Create the chaos and then offer the way to restore order. Your order. The masses are herded and directed by many and varios forms of emotional and mental control. It is the only way it coud be done.

The situation now is how it is, unfortunately I do not posses magical powers to change it, although I wish I did. But these days I find myself asking: what can I do? What can we all do? We – the powerless silent people who are controlled and manipulated by the media and the governments. I feel so futile against the madness, the hysteria and stupidity everywhere, the bizarre 1984 ridiculousness which I never thought I would see in my life. Dystopia left the book pages and is walking freely among us. So, what can we do? We can take a deep breath and calm down, we can stop believing everything we read in the media and realise this whole panic for what it is – panic. Use reason and calmness to fight this irrational fear and panic. Question everything and widen the scope of your reading and research. Ponder on the nature of events, don’t believe the narrative. Be skeptical and don’t just accept this situation for what we are made to believe.

When we read these dystopian novels, it is easy to sympathise with the main character and it’s easy to see how controlling and cruel the system is, but in real life we can’t seem to distance ourselves in that way, and we should. We should observe the situation and not see it as real, for after all we are “the timeless space in which the phenomena are happening”, as David R. Hawkins wrote in his book “The Stairway to Enlightenment”. Both David Icke and Hawkins suggest the most important thing is to have high vibration; that of love, peace and joy. Humour, hope and love, not panic, fear and uncertainty. Yesterday I opened another one of his books, my favourite one, “The Pathway to Surrender” on page thirty-three and the message was there:

“The lower our emotional state, the more negatively we influence not only our lives but also all of life around us. The higher the emotional level of evolution, the more positive our life becomes on all levels, and we support all life around us. As negative emotions are acknowledged and surrendered, we get freer and move up the scale, eventually experiencing predominately positive feelings. All lower emotions are limitations and blind us to the reality of our true Self.”

I don’t wish to argue or impose any truths on my readers, but I do want to enjoy my freedom of speech right while we still have it and just point out at the strangeness of the situation and encourage people to think and awake to the truth. I was angry at first, but now I am almost glad that things are getting so ridiculous because it means that even the most ignorant people will wake up and see there’s something wrong. You don’t have to be conspiracy theorist to see that something is very very very wrong now!!!

I chose Vincent van Gogh’s painting for this post because his art was creates by chaos and sadness, Beauty out of despair, and we can all see this situation as a springboard to creativity and a chance to reconsider our values in life. With your freedom so crudely taken away, you begin to value it and cherish it.

A Review – ‘Rococo: Travel, Pleasure, Madness’

20 Dec

rococo - travel, pleasure, madness

I can’t describe how enlightening and inspiring this three-part documentary was to me. Simply the way Waldemar Januszczak presents art, without affectation, patronisation or stiffness in attitude, is very appealing to all the viewers I suppose, not only me. I’m on cloud nine every time Waldemar makes a new documentary but I was delighted even more for the Rococo art had been puzzling me for a long time. Waldemar opened my eyes with his documentary; I too have always considered Rococo to be a frivolous and unserious, but this documentary dismissed all those ideas that were unfairly fixed in my head. ‘What I want to do in this series‘, said Waldemar, ‘is to convince you in its wider achievements – its punch, its determination, its intoxicating beauty. ‘ In this documentary Waldemar revealed the depth and meaning behind Rococo art. It was frilly and pink, but not always, he explained.

The first part, ‘Travel‘, explores the influence travel had on art in Rococo era. The world was getting smaller; ventures into exotic lands, new discoveries, Bavarian pilgrimage and Canaletto’s romantic vision of Venice all made an impact on art, architecture and tastes. ‘Travel as life’s most exciting pleasures was Rococo idea.

1717. The Love Song - Watteau

The second part, ‘Pleasure‘, focuses on pleasures in life; things usually connected to Rococo. For the first time in history, emphasis was put on pleasure and pursuit of happiness which were seen as the most important things in life. Pursuing happiness, giving in to the pleasures and indulging oneself in every possible way were now seen as unalienable human rights, and reflected in art of Watteau, Boucher, Gainsborough and Tiepolo. This is the aspect of Rococo that people first think of; indulgences, frilly pink dresses, cakes, luxurious balls and endless optimism.

1814. Francisco Goya, El entierro de la sardina (The Burial of the Sardine) 3

The third and final part, ‘Madness’, focuses on Rococo’s descent into madness and eventual decline. Darkness and madness of Rococo seem to have been inevitable for a century focused on enjoyment more than any before. Known as an era of frivolity and decadence, the 18th century produced artists that gave a satirical and cynical dose to a century obsessed with pleasure; Hogworth’s brutish satire, mysterious Longhi’s masked figures and Goya’s macabre. I admit; the third part is my particular favourite.

After watching this documentary, I felt overwhelmed with new ideas, inspirations and visions. It has fulfilled all my expectation, not that I had any doubts, and out of all Januszczak’s documentaries, this one is my second favourite, for The Impressionists can’t be removed from the throne.
