“Your future is created by what you do today, not tomorrow.”
“Mass education cannot work to produce a fair society because its daily practice is practice in rigged competition, suppression and intimidation. The schools we’ve allowed to develop can’t work to teach nonmaterial values, the values which give meaning to everyone’s life, rich or poor, because the structure of schooling is held together by a Byzantine tapestry of reward and threat, of carrots and sticks. Official favor, grades, and other trinkets of subordination have no connection with education; they are the paraphernalia of servitude, not of freedom.”[Bold Emphasis Added]

Actions are the pavement upon which the future rests. Choices are what make those actions take place. And individuals are the catalyst of all the choices that spawn great change – proactive individuals.
The world of the future is based on what proactive individuals choose to do. Just like a timeless poem cannot be created without a writer; just like a mellifluous symphony cannot be enjoyed without a composer; just like a painting cannot be pondered without the imagination and strokes of the painter, so the future cannot be created without individuals laying the foundation by their actions today.
Thoughts are the ultimate tinder that affect the actions of individuals. All thoughts individuals choose to take is a seed that can spawn great change. James Allen, author of As A Man Thinketh, homes-in saliently on this rumination:
“Every thought-seed sown or allowed to fall into the mind, and to take root there, produces its own, blossoming sooner or later into act, and bearing its own fruitage of opportunity and circumstance. Good thoughts bear good fruit, bad thoughts bad fruit.”
As such, it is paramount for all of us individuals to be mindful about the thoughts that traverse the inner workings of our mind. Moreover, it is incredibly crucial to contemplate the type of information you are exposed to; this information greatly dictates how an individual can and will act with prolonged exposure, but also makes individuals predictable, which is the power broker’s wet dream.
The late John Taylor Gatto, author of the timeless Dumbing Us Down – The Hidden Curriculum Of Compulsory Schooling, says it best:
“Schools are intended to produce, through the application of formulas, formulaic human beings whose behavior can be predicted and controlled.”[Bold Emphasis Added]
This is why tools like Propaganda, Social Engineering, Dumbing Of Education, Mind Control and others tools are used to manipulate entire populations. Yet, it all begins at the individual level, since the individual is the foundation of society.
If the goal is for the comptrollers to create a dumbed down, predictable, and stagnant mind-controlled individual, then the solution is obvious: individuals need to become educated, intellectually nimble and robust in every way shape and form, and proactive in moving forward and avoiding or shedding the shackles that are system-imposed while planting seeds of change everywhere.
Then, and only then, will individuals not only stand a chance, but society as a whole and thus, the future.

Inspiration is a wonderful thing. When you have it, your consciousness is energized to the core – an ever-present nuclear reactor unleashing energy at magnitudes greater than you could ever catch up. It is that powerful. This is one of those moments.
There are various conditions which inspire us. Some of them are circumstances of myriad types, while others are individuals themselves. In my case, the inspiration for this blog is an amalgamation of both.
The circumstances that have inspired me are my health getting better in synchronistic fashion, which will be detailed at a cursory manner later, and the incredible personal growth that has taken place and is still ongoing. As far as individuals who have inspired me are concerned, there are a few that stand far above the rest.
The individuals whom have consistently put out not only high quality work, but a type of work that is genuine, meaningful, inspirational, and yet instantly recognizable, are the following:
Jim Marrs: The late Jim Marrs, was a very well respected, and highly influential individual in the alternative media. His book Alien Agenda was what cracked the media-related reality egg for me and made me aware that the matrix that we live in was in fact a carefully constructed reality. Assimilating his profound research on various subject matter helped paved the way for a path I never knew I would get into, yet alone begin researching heavily. If you want to understand the world, all of his books are fantastic, and that is not an understatement. Dive into the deep-end, and be prepared to have your reality extended in a plethora of directions;
Jon Rappoport (NoMoreFakeNews.com): Rappoport’s work has been especially influential to me in various ways. Admittedly, what first caught my attention was his incisive work on the Flu and Viruses, which were covered in such incisive ways that it spawned a lot of my personal research into these subjects. Be that as it may, what fuels me personally in a powerful way is his work on imagination and the importance of logic. Rappoport’s work on these subjects is arguably some of the most fascinating because it filters into all other subjects in intriguing ways, and should not be taken lightly;
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell (GizaDeathStar.com): Farrell’s work became known to me soon after I found Rappoport’s work. I had the pleasure of meeting not only Farrell at the Secret Space Program Conference, in Bastrop Texas in 2015, but I also met the late Jim Marrs, and Walter Bosley as well. This conference significantly cemented much of what I had learned not only from Farrell, but others as well, and it helped me see things in a much larger scope than previously imagined. After reading Dr. Farrell’s trilogy on the Breakaway Civilization, I thence began to steamroll through his books at a rapid pace, never getting enough of the research he provides. What’s more is that, unlike many researchers, be them in the alternative media or otherwise, Farrell always footnotes his work in academic fashion. This has been crucial to my growth as an inquiring mind and an autodidact. Farrell’s work is indispensable in understanding the reality we are currently in;
Richard Dolan (Richarddolanmembers.com) – Dolan has not only put out the unofficial UFO history in phenomenal volumes done in an incisive and academic-like fashion with footnotes to boot, but he also came up with the thesis of a Breakaway Civilization. The Breakaway Individual is a derivative of his idea, but at an individual level. Needless to say, if you want a sound, carefully thought-out, and robust approach to understanding some of the more abstruse subjects such as UFOlogy, False Flags, and The Breakaway Civilization, Dolan’s work is a must read. It was his work on the Breakway Civilizations that made me ruminate upon the idea of individuals, and what they could do to lead a different life, a breakaway life, if that’s even possible. A life which by definition would not be average given the totality of effort and mindfulness that would be required to always strive to be your best self;
Catherine Austin Fitts (Solari.com) – I had the opportunity to meet Fitts at the 2015 SSP Conference, but in all honesty, I was too shy to introduce myself. In fact, she was sitting right behind me, during one of the presentations. My hesitation got the best of me unfortunately. Needless to say, if and when the opportunity ever presents itself, I will go out of my comfort zone and hopefully meet her. That said, Fitts has done yeomen’s work in respect to the missing trillions, that has now been corroborated by Dr. Mark Skidmore. (Read more at: MissingMoney.solari.com) Moreover, on her website, Solari.com, Fitts is always covering overlooked subjects such as Culture, Space, Geopolitics, and much more. In her member podcasts, Fitts has also hosted the aforementioned names as well as countless others. It is in these ongoing conversations that Fitts has been having with her guests that she has gotten into the importance of culture, and how vital it is to create a new type of culture that is not bound by toxic ideals, anti-human values, and all things nonsensical;
Walter Bosley – Bosley’s work has had a similar effect on me as Farrell’s work. His work has helped open up avenues of thought previously unconsidered, and has helped not only my dot-connecting, but also think about history in a different, and yet fascinating fashion. Bosley’s Secret Mission’s book series is my favorite, but all his books are important as he broaches various fascinating subjects. He is currently working on Secret Missions 4 as of this moment, and I am definitely looking forward to that book;
John Taylor Gatto – Gatto’s unfortunate recent passing left a significant personal hole in me. My acclimation to his work came much later to the work of all of the above, but is certainly not any less important. Gatto, as Dr. Farrell put it in a Facebook thread, was “the last sane national voice in education!” With a crumbling educational system, and a targeted torpedoing of American curricula, it’s hard to argue with that statement. Especially given all the work Gatto has been doing over the years describing what is taking place with the dumbing down of society. Within the education system, no one fought harder, fought louder, or in a more salient fashion than Gatto. Becoming familiar with Gatto’s work made me appreciate education in a much deeper way. Not that I did not appreciate it before, but his work allowed me to view what was taking place for what it was, and helped me realize that if any meaningful change is going to come, it has to come from the ground up, at a grass roots level. That is part of what this blog is about, to help individuals grow. This is why Gatto’s work is so vital and influential to me.
My mentioning of the above individuals is in no way shape or form meant to convince you of anything. If you are reading this blog and have made it this far, you made it by your own volition. Similarly, whether you believe in any of the theses of the authors above, that is a choice I leave to you – it is yours to make, and only yours.
Coming to your own conclusions is worth way more because it has to pass your litmus test, your personal scrutiny and not those prepackaged by others. The fact remains however, that whether you agree with the authors above or not, the work that is being put out by them is high-quality work that should not be overlooked, and if you are serious about your attempts to understand this world, this type of work should be carefully considered and ruminated upon at length, and if needed, repeatedly.
Individuals cannot discover new personal horizons unless they are willing to move out of their comfort zones. And no individual can breakaway unless he is willing to go beyond anything they ever previously conceived in order to master themselves.
As individuals, we can watch the world change, or we can change it ourselves. All it requires is a shift in our quality of consciousness.
Authoring y/our own future – a new future – begins with a first step – a new journey – into a boundless horizon.
As Paul Coelho once stated:
“The world is changed by your example not by your opinion.”
What example are YOU going to set?
