The Real Message Behind George Floyd's Death

shutterstock_1742485385.jpgGeorge Floyd was lying face down, handcuffed on a city street.  One officer held his back, one held his legs, and the other kept his knee on the right side of his neck for almost nine minutes.  He yelled “Please”, “I can’t breathe” “mama” and “don’t kill me” before losing consciousness and dying.  What was different about this one man’s death than the death of so many others (most especially the deaths of so many other people of color) that have happened at the hands of authorities?  The answer is, the entire world saw it!  And the entire world saw it at a time when the distrust for authority was already at its peak due to the government actions taken during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

loot.jpgDemonstrations and protests began to take place all across the nation.  They turned from peaceful to violent.  The riots have not stopped. Instead, they are escalating.  Now, the national guard is being called into cities across the nation.  But those who took to the streets to peaceably protest or to vandalize or to loot or to set things on fire, were not all people standing up against the injustice of what a white officer did to a black man.  It is true that some were there for that reason.  Some were there because black lives matter.  But others were there to rise up against the tyranny of a government that they could clearly see was against instead of for the people… With all the restrictive measures taken in the name of Covid-19, these people have been slowly pushed to the boiling point for the last three months.  The death of George Floyd was merely the ‘straw that broke the camel’s back’ so to speak. And still others were there to deliberately cause violent opposition between citizens and government officials.  And it is this reality that should snap people out of the automatic reactivity that they are caught in immediately.    

 If you are like most people in the world right now, you are probably thinking “what the hell is going on right now?”  And you should be thinking that right now.  You are caught in the swarm of the chaos of mixed motives.  We are all on different pages, fighting for our own subjective best interests.  We are inundated with so many conflicting news stories that no one knows what is real or fake.  We are caught in the perfect storm.  And we are caught in that storm, brokenhearted.      

opp.jpgWelcome to controlled opposition.  I want you to imagine that someone wants to make a change that will negatively affect you.  They know that you will react poorly, making you harder to control.  But they want to control your reaction. So they introduce someone who appears to be on your side.  Maybe an advocate, a leader who you will feel has more authority or power than yourself.  Really, this person is already controlled by them.  But you don’t know it.  Controlled opposition is a rat trap designed for those who wish to break free from control.  

Controlled opposition is a chess play that is being played by individuals who (due to their trauma and subsequent need for control) have been playing chess with people as their pawns and knights and bishops and rooks for most of their life.  Controlled opposition is the current chess play that the human race is stuck in.      

shutterstock_1182361474.jpgI am going to tell you the truth today even though it is a truth that is unsavory.  Your entire bi-partisan political system is a game of controlled opposition.  It doesn’t matter whether you vote red or vote blue. Today, the people with the actual power, the people behind major corporations, employ government officials as puppets.  They use these puppets to play the role of villain or hero to give you the illusion that the game is not rigged and to distract you from what is actually going on; the objective picture.  The freedom you thought you had was not actual freedom.  It is time to break out of the illusion.    

Infiltration by establishment is not paranoia or conspiracy theory.  It is not a rarity.  It is the norm throughout human history.  

Today, controlled opposition is serving as a tool for ‘divide and conquer’.  I don’t want you to make an enemy of all people who own major corporations.  I don’t want you to think that everyone in the government is against you.  I simply want you to open your eyes and see that some people with a lot of power, want you to fight one another.  And so, I ask you to answer the question:  If those people with power are able to use other people in the government (who have more power than the average citizen) as chess pieces and they want you to riot and they want you to get violent… WHY?      

We are in a time where thinking deeply and stepping back to see objectively is an absolute necessity.  It is all there is to do when you find yourself swallowed in an ocean of contradicting information where nothing is adding up and things are never what they seem.  And yes… Things are not what they seem!  They never have been, but now the people of earth are finally seeing it!

If those individuals who want to control you, want conflict, want riots, want violent opposition between citizens, want you separated and want you divided against one another, then the chess move you need to make is to unite.  You must do the opposite that they would have you do.  The heat is being turned up on you and you are being called into radical unification

shutterstock_1363175324.jpgUnification is not easy.  It means taking the villain and the victim both as a part of yourself.  Stop doing what people have always done.  Stop dividing into ‘groups’ that oppose one another.  Start to look at the ‘person’ inside everyone.  The power that people either have or are given, causes us to no longer see them as people.  The soldier who storms into your house with a gun is a person.  The owner of the corporation who is playing a zero-sum game against his own buyers is a person.  The black man who walks into a store with a 20-dollar counterfeit bill is a person.  The person refusing to wear a mask is a person.  The person who insists you wear one, is a person.  Each one is a person with needs, feelings, thoughts, values, vulnerabilities, strengths and preferences, all of which add up to the picture of why they think that what they are doing is ‘good and right’.  If you cut them, they will bleed red. 

You have to look for the person inside the ‘persona’ people wear.  We have got to stop this game of “us and them’.  How are you the same as “them”?  What needs are the same?  What feelings are the same?  What values are the same?  What motives are the same?  Look for commonalities.  Look for ways that you can go in the same direction.  Look for the third option that meets both your needs and theirs and work together towards it.  Put your energy towards what you are for rather than against.          

shutterstock_1109424086.jpgThe human race is being tested right now.  The test is this: Will you choose to end the zero-sum game?  A zero-sum game is essentially when one person’s gain is another person’s loss.  It is an ‘I win and you lose’ scenario.  And though humanity itself is taking that test, you cannot take it for humanity.  You can only take it for yourself as an individual with the person who is in front of you.  Humanity is made up of individuals.  If individuals cannot end the zero-sum game within themselves and with others, it doesn’t matter if they are passive democrats or raging republicans or libertarians or nonpartisan.  Without knowing it, they are all in fact voting for war.  It is not possible to change your world, while you as an individual, remain the same.       

Conflict is the bait being laid out for you and so, I leave you with this:

Here

The space between skin and skin

is torment.

But here

The space between souls

makes the space between skin and skin

a comfort.

The truth is hidden

and yet its murmur reaches us.

In the sweet luxury of a smile

In the brief consumption of embrace

It tells you to look deeper…

To look deeper.

Look beyond the space between us all and

see

that you are that smile.

You are that embrace.

You are the civilian

whose life was lost to hatred.

You are the man

who strapped a bomb

to your own body,

and in the name of hatred,

took those lives.

You are the earth

that held them both

and converted their bodies

into new life. 

Your pain is a congress of tears

called the ocean.

Your joy is a collation of light

called the sun.

The murmur of truth

tells you to look deeper…

To look deeper.

Until the truth is revealed

that there is no space

between skin and skin.

That there is no space

between souls.

Teal asks us to ask ourselves ... why would people behind the curtain WANT us to riot and get violent.... and I'd love to hear some people's insights and answers to this within this comment section. 

What I came up with is so we are divided and easily able to hate another... but when we do this, what does it do for "them" (those behind the curtain that want control)? Could it be that this is a play where we turn angry and against another so we can be hungry for a savior and answer and "they" can perfectly place that in front of us and we can be hungry to accept something we otherwise maybe would not accept ? Like a new law or more monitoring of people and more control?

Truth that made me cry. Heartbroken. Humanity is heading to hell in a handcart. Blinded by our own inability to step up into something so simple and right under our noses. The simple truth that we have been played. And we are powerful beyond measure, to turn this hell into heaven. Yet we choose otherwise.

Wow! 
This is so incredibly complex! The degree to which the powers-that- be have executed on their vision (depopulation? Superior species?) - with commitment, precision and consistency is really quite excellent - let’s take some plays from that book and create the world we want to see! 
 

Why would those in power want us to riot and be violent? I have some ideas:

1) DISTRACTION - let’s say 1 person has a goal but to get to that finish line they would have to push aside or beat 100 people to get there. 1 vs 100 (if those 100 people are working together) is really not good odds. Let’s say, though, that 1 person was able to break the 100 into 10 groups of 10 and only has to face off against 10 people at a time to reach their goal - that’s way better odds. Even better odds - let’s say that 1 person gets the 10 groups of 10 people to start fighting one another and get totally immersed in the in-fighting. They could just prance right over to the finish line with basically no trouble at all.  

2) STRESS - when us humans are in violence we are in hatred, rage and powerlessness. These are major stress emotions that keep us locked out of our frontal, creative lobe. We are locked out of possibility and alternate perspectives in that scenario. Thinking critically, stepping back, looking objectively and coming up with a plan is highly unlikely in super stressful times. 

3) DESPERATION (as detailed in the blind spot card) - when things get bad and desperation starts to set in, we accept scenarios or grievances we would have never agreed to before. It’s not that hard to understand why a starving person would to agree to eat a poisoned apple. Perhaps this is another step toward creating desperate measures - fear other people, fear the police, fear another race, stay home - lock back down, create cognitive dissonance, be inside at curfew, financial insecurity, break the food supply chain, etc etc etc - to make that poisoned apple start to look more and more tasty. 
 

I will hold a vision where I see people coming together to live in community with gardens and food sovereignty and sovereignty in general and connection and reverence for Mother Earth and all life.

Sooo beautiful...and so much more. Let us unite in love and create a world of peace and serenity. A world of love and freedom. A world of love and connection. The world of love is ahead of us. We are the world. We are love.

Yes that, or what I think is that the looting and violence will give them the excuse to enact martial law or something which will be perfect timing for them to enact something that takes away our freedom related to the covid situation and with martial law already in place, we will be completely unable to protest

I think it is done so that people look like “crazy” and not trustworthy. And when it is time to make a new controlling move from the government, people will look like irresponsible citizens who cannot make a right decision for themselves, and those decisions have to be done by “them”.

this is they way they see the best way to control humanity. their best interest is to have control. they see humanities best interest is for them to control us and our resources.  because the deems us inferior and disposable and the world has put them in positions where they can think that because we think that of ourselfs too atleast some part of us do. we have given them the stearing wheele to our lives because we were raise to be that way, just like children with their parents. but like we have learn our parents dont always know what is best for us either and do what they belive is best. in the long run they are just following what has being thought. 

yes what you say about "wanting to hate each other so they can put a savior they can control in place for a solution" is correct. Now what happens depends if that is what you wish for your future or not, I think. 

what is going on in the world is almost the exact mirrior of what has being happening in my life. And I felt powerless or to tired (wish I am) to do anything about it. I like this post because it confirms what I knew I needed to do. The thing is very hard for me to make relationships work so lets see how I do.

 

Great question.
