Critical Thinking: Is Focusing On ‘The Elites’ Distracting Humanity From The Inner Work That Needs To Be Done?
It could be said that, at this point in time, there are more people than ever before who are looking into what is taking place behind the scenes, so to speak. Thanks to the amount of information that is available, this is not something that takes much effort.
There are numerous websites, videos, articles and social media accounts that talk about what the so-called ‘elites’ are doing. These individuals are often portrayed as being hell-bent on the complete control of humanity, with this being something that has been on their agenda for hundreds of years.
In the Know
So, if someone routinely pays attention to the different sources that are available, they can see themselves as being aware of what is actually going on in the world. Unlike those who simply consume mainstream sources, then, they won’t be deceived.
There is even the chance that one will see themselves being superior to people who are like this. They could also believe that if it wasn’t for people like this, the game would be over for ‘the elites’.
If they are this way, there can be the group that they belong to, those who are ‘in the know’, and the group that people like this belong to, who those are ‘asleep’. This point of view can be one that most, if not all, of the experts in this field espouse.
Being aware of this information is then going to have a positive effect on their self-image. Before they came across this information, they might not have been in a good place, but how they felt will now be a thing of the past.
An Adrenalin Rush
Whenever they view the different sources that tell them about what is going on, they could experience a rush of energy. They are then going to be looking at a device and, perhaps, in the comfort of their own home, but it will be as if they are on some kind of adventure or crusade.
If they haven’t got much else going in their life, consuming this information will give them a sense of purpose and thereby, provide them with a reason to get up each morning. Due to the impact that this information has on them, they are going to need to regularly get their ‘hit’ of inside information.
Now, with that aside, when someone believes that the elites are the problem, they are likely to believe that they need to be dealt with in order for the world to change. Unless this happens, things will only get worse.
When this happens, it could be seen as a time when there will be heaven on earth and a new “golden age.” As a result of how they see things, it is to be expected that they will believe that the more people who are aware of what is going on, the better.
Black And White
Quite simply, what is going on ‘out there’ will need to change as soon as possible or it will be too late. Along with this, there will be those who are ‘good’ or at least not ‘bad’, and those who are ‘bad’.
Furthermore, there will be a large part of humanity who are victims and a very small part of who are the perpetrators. Still, this will only be the case because most people are ‘asleep’ and are unaware of what the elites are doing.
However, although it may seem as though the way to change the world is to deal with the elites, what if it is not this black and white? What if focusing on what the elites appear to be doing is actually doing more harm than good?
What if being aware of what the elites appear to be doing and trying to do something about it is merely another distraction? What if being caught up in what is going on ‘out there’ shows that someone is not as awake as they think they are?
One way of looking at all this would be to say that it is a consequence of one being strongly attached to their ego-mind and, subsequently, seeing themselves as nothing more than an observer of reality. They are then separate from everyone and everything and thus, don't have much of an effect on their experience.
Naturally, the only way for them to change the world will be to change what is going on ‘out there. This is all just an illusion that their ego-mind, along with their eyes, create, as one is not separate from anyone or anything.
Getting To the Root
What this means is that when one is focused on what the elites are doing, they are feeding into this very reality; one where there is such a thing as elites and one where these people are causing harm. When it comes to changing the world, it would be far more effective for them to take their creative energy away from this reality and to focus on the kind of reality that they want to experience.
Seeing what is going on ‘out there’ as the problem will please their ego-mind, with its dual nature, as this part of them won’t have to deal with anything and will be able to continue to play out the same ego dramas such as the victim/perpetrator, heaven and hell, and the good vs. evil dynamic. The inner material that this part doesn’t want to acknowledge will co-create their own reality and what is taking place on the planet as a whole.
Taking this into account, although there will be what the elites are doing, focusing on them will allow someone to avoid their own life and their own issues. It is, of course, far easier for someone to try to change what is going on ‘out there’ than it is for them to be the change that they want to see.
For one to be the change that they want to see, they will have to take their attention away from what is going on externally and to connect to themselves. This is likely to be a time when they will come into contact with the parts of themselves that they would rather avoid.
If humanity as a whole dealt with their own issues, there would be no reason for a group of people ‘out there’ to exist who want to harm their fellow human beings. But, as a large part of humanity avoids their own inner wounds, it is inevitable that external circumstances and events will arise that don't serve humanities best interests.
When this is not something that is widely understood, that the outer world reflects what is taking place in the collective unconscious, what is going on ‘out there’ will naturally be seen as the problem. The key will be to see what is going on ‘out there’ as a reflection of what is going on internally as this will allow deep change to occur, which will stop humanity from trying to change their collective shadow.
