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:


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


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.

Something that frustrates me is that, the human race obviously does not have to tools to take people as part of themselves. I suppose it's my own millenial trauma speaking, but it seems like, universally, we're already set up for failure.

Accept that the illusion of differences is only in ones own actions towards another person or ethnicity "where identity diversity is welcome in every simple change that we observe creating tranquility marvel and acceptance in recognition of each others soul divinity, which breaks down the created rhetoric of racisms agendas created by Governments under the influence of greed and control of the feeble minded sheep, that inside are really wolves that have been drugged and bound by the speeches of the past from the rhetoric from dead men's desires needs and beliefs  misinformation to control your own thoughts. 

The wow was on seeing those people in power (that are "dangerous") as a part of yourself.

I found it very hard to embrace something as a part of your self that by doing so may cause you more harm, I've been struggeling with that one.

So the understanding of how to do it without rejecting that part or hurting yourself was a click for me.

While I agree with the bigger picture, this felt a bit like spiritual bypassing. Without acknowledging our actual internal racism, a huge problem isn’t addressed. 

I also found it interesting that out of all the examples she used, she happened to use a black man associated with counterfeiting money (none of the other examples mentioned the race of those involved) 🤨 


Just reflecting...

She used this example cause that's why george floyd was arrested ! Counterfeit 20 dollar bill. She was using what happened to him....

I think it’s to not only be against each other but to take away our freedom and use this as “proof” that sharpened laws and restrictions are justified...  that them taking is giving when it isn’t

What I just realised is that the world might not get any better in my lifetime.
But what I also realised is that it's still worth it to do my very best and radically love all people anyway.

one is all 
all is one

 But how do you do just that when the person in front of you is trying to forcibly remove or arrest you? Or if they attack you physically or verbally because you have a different opinion? Like theoretically it’s great but practically in a situation like that.....???  I can keep responding to everything from the context & Truth that we are all one, I can even try to explain to them but that won’t stop the person if they’re convinced they’re doing/believing/saying/knowing the “right thing”/“the truth”, will it? I can keep thinking I am this person, this person is me that’s maybe holding a gun at me to forcibly vaccinate me let’s say - will that make a difference?  If someone is being harmful to me all I can do is remove myself from their environment ASAP......

And that's the question that gets me: Why would people want to pit humans against each other? I see good theories you guys are coming up with, but ultimately even they don't make sense to me. What are these people getting out of this? Control over how people think? A stack of money? So what? What's so great about that?

You guys following Teal Swan aren't going to be able to put yourself in their shoes because you have empathy. In other words, you'll project your sane human consciousness onto them (e.g. maybe they're angry, maybe they're stressed)

Then I had a realization - the only reason I would want to do anything like that would be out of boredom, random experimentation, just for the hell of it.

Think about it: Have you even had a line of ants marching through your kitchen, and thought, "I wonder if I place this object here, will they walk over it? Around it? I remember once having an ant problem at my desk and poured a line of water out to see if they could get through it. It was funny to me watching them all do different things. That's what made it interesting.

That is maybe the most disturbing and curious thing of all: They see us as ants. It's a game. When you have everything you need to survive and no hopes or dreams, what else is there to do?

It's extremely difficult indeed. Before my spiritual awakening, I wonder if I would be able to do this at all? The interesting part is how we take the racists as a part of ourselves and what to do once we are able to do so. Would you blame it on the individual traumas they may have experienced? Social conditioning, ignorance and fear seem more plausible? How do we best relate to their response? And how do we best approach the issue, other than making sure that our own children grow up sufficiently loved and without fear so as to not turn out racist?
