Think about that. Think hard. We have an inherent need to seek outside guidance rather than use our own minds to look for guidance within ourselves. Even when the answers to our questions are slapping us in the face, we ignore the painful reality of having to use our own brains and look beyond for someone to teach us those answers.
Don't believe me? Here's a real life example many of the veterans here on the forum may remember:
A few years back, I posted a thread here on this very forum explaining, in detail, how I built a simple little site and earned money in a relatively short period of time. That free info was enough for just about anyone to copy my methods, and the site itself because I posted a link to it, and replicate my results.
Guess what happened - dozens of people posted replies and literally begged me to convert my post into a .PDF and sell it to them as a WSO, after I had already posted the info for free.
Hundreds bought the product and I made thousands of dollars.
The free info I gave them wasn't enough. They wanted more. They took it upon themselves to elevate me into a position of leadership so that they could pay to follow my teachings... because without being able to look to a leader for guidance, they would have had to do the thinking themselves, even though what I sold to them was exactly the same as what I had written for free.
At the time, I didn't really, truly understand what was happening. But now after delving into things like conspiracy theories, the psychology behind why people join and follow satanic cults, the hive mind, mental conditioning and how small groups of people pulling the strings use the results of that conditioning to rule the world uninhibited by morals or laws ... I understand.
Look around you with an open mind and you'll see how people elevate themselves into leadership roles to gain money and power over you.
I'll use this as an example - Do any of you know what a "False Flag Attack" is? It's when a government stages an attack on it's own people so that it can rob them of their money, their rights and their liberties.
Here's how it works - Govt. stages an attack. Pres. gets in the media talking about terror and how he will protect us from threats... but freedom comes at a cost - the cost is in the trillions, the cost is the rapid erosion of rights, the cost is less privacy, yadda, yadda. You know the drill... and we, the people say "dear leader, protect us from the tyrants!"
Well floks, here's a real-time, real-life example of a false flag attack that's happening on this very forum right now.
The internet marketing industry is in ruins! The tyrants have taken over and the ruling elite has been treating us like cattle being led to the slaughter so we're all yelling "Something needs to be done, someone please help us!"
And that same ruling elite is now setting up new sites, with slick marketing videos and kind hearted clean cut fun guys and gals professing to be your saviours. They're here to help us, but at a cost...
People. Start thinking for yourselves. Realize and accept the fact that you don't need to look to a higher power for guidance. Break out of that mindset, become a free, independant individual and you'll never fall under someone else's spell again. Do things for yourselves and you'll never be taken advantage of again. If "Something needs to be done" do it, don't wait for someone else to tell you what you need to do.
"Should I buy this $X,000 product or membership or coaching or mentorship package?" I dunno, that's like asking if you should spend tons of money to give up your free will and put your future in someone else's hands.
What I wrote above is powerful and I know deep down that very few, if any of you will truly understand or even want to take your future into your own hands... and that in itself is also powerful, to the right person - the person who sees opportunities where others feel helpless ;-)
Hope you enjoyed my ramblings and I'm very interested in seeing your reply.
