Irrespective of whether it relates to the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom or the president of America, there is no shortage of people who don’t like the person who is the leader of their country. Of course, there are people that do or these individuals wouldn’t be where they are.
But, while there are people that do like the leader of their country, it can seem as though most people don’t. Along with the views that the citizenry have, there are the views that the mainstream media have.
However, it wouldn’t be right to say that these two things are separate, as a large part of the citizenry is heavily influenced by this source. Thus, this source plays a big part in how so many people see the person who is in power at any given time.
Even so, just because someone has been conditioned to see this person in a certain way, it doesn’t mean that they will realise this. As far as they are cornered, how they see this person can be seen as what this person is actually like.
The Perfect Outcome
Now, if an individual wanted to manipulate another person, the last thing that they would want is for what they are doing to become clear. So, the fact that so many people are not aware of what is going on, means that these modern-day sorcerers are highly effective at what they do.
There are people who look towards the alternative instead, and this can be seen as a source that also conditions people to see their leaders in a certain way. Taking this into account, if someone who soaks up what the mainstream media says was to talk to someone who soaks up what the alternative media says, it is not going to be a surprise if there is conflict.
If the effect that the media has was put to one side, it could be said that it would still be hard to accept that the people who are in power are the best candidates for the job. Take the president of America for example, is he really the best leader that America has to offer?
Is there not at least one other person who is far more balanced and evolved, who would be better suited for this role? What needs to be taken into consideration here is that being the president of America is not going to appeal to most people in America.
A Heavy Weight
To do a job like this, someone needs to be willing to tolerate an endless amount of criticism and to accept a lot of responsibility. Therefore, someone either needs to be incredibly strong, or they need to be incredibly narcissistic.
The former won’t need the approval of others to feel good about themselves, whilst the latter, with their inflated false-self, will. For the latter, taking the blows will be worth it because of the narcissistic supply that such a role would bestow upon them.
An Expected Outcome
With this in mind, it is to be expected that the political arena would attract people who are a danger to themselves and humanity. People like this are essentially empty vessels that need constant external affirmation of their own greatness to stop themselves from having to come into contact with their own darkness.
It wouldn’t be right, though, to say that well-balanced people are not found in the political realm. Nonetheless, due how toxic this realm is, it is likely to be heard for someone to stay true to their own principles and not to be undermined by people that don’t want someone like this to rise to the top.
The Usual Approach
At this point, it would be easy to criticise the president of America, and by coming from this angle, it would be normal for the average person to see themselves as a powerless victim. There is then someone ‘out there’ who is in control and they, along with their fellow human beings, can’t do much about it.
Sure, they can vote for someone else but, who’s to say that the next person will be any better? The next person could be just as bad, if not worse, than the previous president; or, the same person could be ‘voted’ in again.
A Different Focus
What if the president of America, or the leader of any other country for that matter, is a reflection of what is going on for the citizenry as a whole? This person is then a manifestation of what is taking place in the collective consciousness.
Upon hearing something like this, the average person – especially someone who can’t stand their president – could completely dismiss this viewpoint and even experience anger. The fact that they don’t like this person and are seemingly nothing like them will be seen as a clear sign that they have played no part in this person being the president.
The Illusion of Separation
One thing that the ego-mind does is create the impression that one is separate from everyone and everything. As a result of this, what is taking place ‘out there’ won’t have anything to do with them.
In reality, one is not merely an observer of their reality; they are playing an active role in what they do or don’t experience. Nevertheless, it is not just what is taking place in their conscious mind that influences their life; it is also what is taking place in their unconscious mind.
The Collective Field
When it comes to what is taking place in someone’s unconscious mind, this will partly relate to the parts of themselves that are too painful for them to acknowledge. Not only will these parts stay deep inside them, but they will also seep into the collective unconscious.
What if, then, the president of America, or the leader of any other country for that matter, is a representation of what is taking place in the unconscious mind of so many people? Through not being able to acknowledge these parts of themselves, someone ‘out there’ has to appear to embody what they themselves are not willing to face.
Also, as the ‘dark’ parts of themselves will be pushed out of their conscious awareness, they will also project these parts into others. Ergo, while people out there such as the president will be a manifestation of what they are not willing to face, they will also see things in others that don’t actually belong to them.
Another person will then be seen as possessing something that they themselves are not willing to come to terms with. These two examples show how much of an impact someone has on their own reality and the world as a whole.
What is clear is that looking towards someone ‘out there’ to change a country or the world is not very effective. It is likely to be far more effective if humanity not only did the right things but also cleaned their own consciousness.
If they did this instead of resisting what is going on ‘out there’ and supporting the very reality that they want to change – what is resisted is what will persist and grow – there is a strong chance the world would change very rapidly. The trouble is that fighting what is going on ‘out there’ and blaming others is far more appealing to the ego-mind; this will allow one to avoid their own pain, to feel self-righteous and to receive approval from others
Going within, on the other hand, and working through emotional wounds and disowned parts of themselves, will be painful and won’t serve their ego. Doing this will take courage and they are likely to receive very little approval from others.
