I wrote these notes before putting together my second and third collections, Exit From The Matrix and Power Outside The Matrix:

“Solutions to private problems and public problems require the ability to think things through, logically, and to reject what is unworkable or biased—but above and beyond that, a person needs to be able to imagine solutions that haven’t been tried before. He can’t keep asking other people to invent solutions for him. This is the hardest lesson. The habit of demanding that others come up with answers, that others find a way out of the tunnel—this habit is based on the assumption that one’s own power of imagination is grossly limited, which is a lie. You might say it is the central lie.”

“The world says defect from your own power. Never find out what it is. Assume it isn’t there. The world says all life is about the species, not about the individual. The world says you should use every excuse in the book to define how small and helpless you are.”

“When propagandists find a good thing, a message that works, they pound on it, they keep hammering away. Family, group, family, group, community. On and on. They never promote the message called The Individual with the same intensity. That would be counter-productive to what they are trying to accomplish: group identity; and amnesia about being an individual.”

“Civilization continues to erode and decay, as individual power is put on the back burner. But that doesn’t give the individual a license to surrender. If others want to give up, that’s their business. The individual, instead, finds new frontiers for his power, for his capacity to invent reality.”

“A confession of helplessness doesn’t earn you a gold star on the blackboard. There is no gold star or blackboard. There is you, there is your own power. And what is that power? It comes in two forms or venues. First, there is the ability to apply logic to events and information; to think rationally from A to B to C; to analyze. And second, there is imagination, the capacity to conceive and then invent realities that would never otherwise exist in the world.”

Is it even possible?

Consider an entrepreneur, group, company that has something genuinely important to deliver or sell…

With the means to engage in public relations…

Launched on behalf of the truth about the service, product, or idea.

Yes, I know this is a completely foreign concept in our society, where PR is deployed to peddle lies and deceptions from dawn to midnight—but just suppose.

What’s the first mistake good people would make?

My answer is based on my work with private clients. The top two mistakes (it’s a virtual tie) are: they think the truth will stand on its own, like a statue in a park; and they believe being nice will attract wide support.

The first notion is stunningly naïve. The second is based on fear of offending someone somewhere.

Statues mainly attract birds with a sense of humor. Nice is a pretty good sleep-aid.

I have a vivid image of a group going up against a collection of plundering mega-corporations; the TV ad featured a young blonde walking toward the camera across what looked like the floor of a bank. She stopped ten feet away from the lens, her smile unwavering, and spoke a dozen encouraging words in a language I would call Rainbow White Rice.

For the price of the ad, the group could have pushed out a few hundred attack ads on the Web. Oh well. Mustn’t offend.

Breakaway Guide To Simplifying Your Life

By: Zy Marquiez
January 17, 2016

“Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.”
– Leonardo Da Vinci

“If you can’t explain it simple enough, you can’t understand it well enough.”
– Albert Einstein

———————–

Upon musing a bit about the term ‘simplicity’ it occurred to me to search for the term “Law of Simplicity”. There were many tips on simplifying everything, and countless permutations of the idea in various ways, but no actual law [that was apparent to me] that could be easily shared. If anyone finds a solid ‘simple’ [pun intended] then please share it with us, as its pertinent to the focus of this blog.

Let’s get to the core of the issue: simplicity.

Two definitions according to dictionary.com are:

“the state, quality, or an instance of being simple.”

“freedom from complexity, intricacy, or division into parts.”

Pretty straight forward, right?

For our purposes we will distil it one step further for the purposes of this blog and say: to keep things as simple and as practical as possible. Simple.

You must be asking yourself, why are we even talking about this topic? Great question.

Because depending on what point of view one uses, and in this case we’ll use a detached-macro point of view of society as a whole, then it’s pretty obvious people tend to complicate their lives way more than they should.

These complications seep into every aspect of an individual’s life, and end up taxing them in countless way.

Are people even cognizant of it? Some definitely are; however, many are not.

Here are what some incisive minds have stated about keeping things simple:

“Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity”
– Plato

“Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.”
– Coco Chanel

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”
– Confucius

“In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.”
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Be as simple as you can be; you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become.”
– Paramahansa Yoganda

– Simplicity will stand out, while complexity will get lost in the crowd.”
– Kevin Barnett

“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.”
– Hans Hoffman

“The greatest ideas are the simplest.”
– William Golding

– “If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.”
– Albert Einstein

“It is not a daily increase, but a daily decrease. Hack away at the inessentials.”
– Bruce Lee

Its quite noteworthy that such individuals engaged in this particular thought process. It alludes to the importance of this topic.

Keeping the above insights in mind, what are some aspects of life that people tend to complicate?

Relationships, food, health, politics, etc.

Relationships? That should be an obvious one, and one everyone can relate too. Let’s distill this in its most simplest form.

If someone – be it a lover, friend, acquaintance, etc – in a relationship treats you like trash, all the time, or heck, most of the time, then they’re probably definitely not worth your time/energy. Bam. Simple. No excuses. Once you start justifying the erroneous actions of others as righteous [for whatever] reason, or giving them excuses, when it’s obvious they just don’t truly care [if they did, they wouldn’t be treating you like crap, all the time], you’re doing yourself a world of disservice.

It doesn’t matter if they are family or not. In fact, family members in many situations get away with everything AND the kitchen sink because they are family. Remember, putting up with their bullshit is a choice. No excuses. Keep it as simple as you wish, or as complicated.

Next on the menu, food.

Food? Why food? Because eating things that are a poor excuse for food, only makes things complicated.

If you don’t believe me, look at the epidemic of diseases that’s rampant costing hundreds of thousands of lives due to many reasons, a strong one being food. Why food? Because much of food is laden with toxins such as fluoride, aspartame, GMOs, etc. Each of those by itself can cause diseases. When taken in combination, which most people do, it’s a toxic free for all and your health is on the menu.

How to simplify this? Easy. Eat the best, most healthy food that you can. Nourish your body with that which empowers it.

Health being the most vital component in life, let’s elaborate further to be more precise.

Researching Non-Genetically modified, organic, locally grown [if possible] pesticide free food is a good great start. Making sure you drink fluoride-free water is even better.

Many can attest to the wonders of having real, nutrient-dense food like our ancestors did. A great book that talks about this is The Paleo Approach by Sarah Balantyne. Coupled with that, another outstanding book to keep in mind is Gut & Psychology Syndrome, by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride MD. The latter book touches on the intricate complexities of the human gut system, and how that fuels disease when your microbiota has been eviscerated by processed foods.

Why is ‘going out of your way’ [as some people argue] to eat real food worth it? Because not doing it is costing millions of lives. Sugar alone, which most people have in processed foods, fuels cancer like liquors fuel parties on the weekends. It’s insane how many people don’t know the inflammatory effects of sugar. That’s only one aspect of food that causes death. There are many more ingredients beyond sugar that should be incisively contemplated.

Unfortunately, sugar has been linked to countless other diseases.

In the article, The Truth About Sugar Addiction, Dr. Mercola sheds light onto 76 different ways sugar can ruin your health.

As a wise person once said, you pay for your health now with real food, or you pay for it later with disease, money and life.

Next on the list, is health.

One might be prompted to think , ‘Didn’t we just cover health?’ From the food angle, yes. From other angles, no.

Food already dovetails quite well into health. That’s only a start. Let’s buttress the above with another point.

As said mentioned elsewhere:

If the average person spends 5-hours daily watching television, then they are probably sitting too much. Sitting too much has dire consequences for one’s health, as some of you may know.

In his article named Watching Too Much TV Linked To Early Death, Dr. Mercola elucidates best:

If you watch television for three or more hours a day, your risk of premature death is double that of someone who watches only one hour or less, according to new research published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.1 The health risks of too much sedentary behavior, including too much sitting, are now widely known.” [Bold emphasis added]

If you want more information about that, please read Dr Mercola’s article cited above. It’s quite detailed and thought-provoking, if sobering.

The above information should be enough to make people contemplate deeply about the health choices they are making. Keep in mind, we’re only talking about sitting and watching TV.

Solution? Stay active. No complicated suggestions here. Just do anything that gets you moving, and bam, you’re health is better than it was if you’re remaining stagnant.

Lastly, politics.

Boy oh boy, where can’t we go here?

In interest of simplicity, let’s synthesize this to the most simplest form.

If a scoundrel politician – regardless of whatever party they are from – lies, they shouldn’t be trusted. If they are caught being bought-off by special interest, they shouldn’t be trusted. And of course, if they are caught stealing, they should not be trusted. No exceptions. What’s so hard about that?

Blind trust of those that throw y/our interests under the bus, each and every day is exactly how we got here in the first place.

When people are not held accountable, they will unleash crimes of godlike proportions. Just look at Wall Maul Street.

In a quick synopsis:

If someone treats you poorly, let them go. Eat real non-GMO organic healthy foods like our ancestors did, if not your life/health will become exponentially complicated. Quit sitting so much while watching TV & don’t trust lying crooks. Solid advice, right?

Simple.

To finalize, within the confines of this blog, ‘the law of simplicity’ will be used to denote instances where we will be making issues as simple as possible for the individual. In such a way, life will be much easier to navigate through, and things that used to be chaotic will literally crumble right before your eyes. Many have reaped these rewards. It’s time for everyone else to do so as well.

The only thing left is making the choice.

Make your life as simple as you wish, or as complicated.

The choice is yours.

“Truth is ever to be found in the simplicity and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.”
– Isaac Newton

“Nothing is more simple than greatness; indeed, to be simple is to be great.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

“How many undervalue the power of simplicity! But it is the real key to the heart.”
– William Wordsworth

Analyzing Human Action – Why So Much Hatred?


By: Zy Marquiez
January 3, 2016

“Negative emotions are like unwelcome guests. Just because they show up on our doorsteps doesn’t mean they have a right to stay.”
– Deepak Chopra

This idea of this post was in response to an avalanche of negative comments on a particular video.

In said video, evidence was discussed and particular theories bandied about. Said theories prompted two separate tidal waves of emotion: positivity and negativity.

In particular, the negativity wasn’t just random venting, or just having a different point of view. The negativity came in the form of personal attacks. That’s a very precise type of negativity. It came out in full blown hatred through most comments as a matter of fact. This tidal wave of emotion left many people feeling dejected.

Whether the video was accurate or incorrect, isn’t the point of this analysis. What the point of this observation is how much time is spent being wasted by the mere act of spewing negativity over the course of that individual’s life.

The nascent point in this observation is 30 minutes a day. This seems like a reasonable assumption given that there are many people that spend much more time than that spewing hatred, literally every day.

To this we will multiply this by 365 days, and ultimately by 50 years of life.

Here’s the math:

30 minutes a day of complaining

30 minutes * 365 [days] = 10950 minutes

10950 minutes x 50 [years] = 547,500 minutes

547,500 minutes / 60 [to get total hours] = 9125

9125 hours / 24 [to get total days] = 380 days

Please keep in mind, these numbers are conservative. Some people will spend a lot more time than this, sometimes a few multiples of that.

The higher the quality of consciousness of an individual, the lower the probability of them engaging in errant negative behaviour. Not everyone is like that though.

After that tsunami of negativity that took place, it makes me wonder how much time the average person in their life takes part in this type of negativity. And to be more precise, this isn’t just random venting and such. Am talking about precise ad hominem attacks fueled by hatred/ignorance. The kind of substance that deteriorates the soul of an individual. That also doesn’t cover many of the detrimental side effects of negativity such as stress and such.

All of this is just food for thought.

This whole event is definitely something quite noteworthy, even if it is just a piece a larger puzzle.

It truly makes curious as to all of the things that drive people to choose to act in such a manner.

Regardless of what takes place, don’t allow the actions of other individuals to mar your inner sanctum.

Be mindful.

“Don’t be victimized by negative emotions and thinking. Don’t be handicapped by stubbornness and inflexibility.”
– Dr. TP Chia

The Basics Of Earth Culture

Conformity

Source: NoMoreFakeNews.com
Jon Rappoport
January 3, 2015

People assume the culture of Earth is normal and understandable. Even critics harbor this opinion.

“Well, even though massive conformity isn’t desirable, we can see why people embrace it…”

Really?

Examine the annals of science fiction; even there, the majority of ET cultures in the literature exhibit conformity to norms. That’s how far the assumption goes.

Culturally speaking, what is conformity? It’s the passing of an idea through many hands and minds, rendering it lifeless and limp, drained of vitality. What these minds are accepting becomes a dead habit, a series of empty gestures.

That’s the fundamental of Earth Culture. Everywhere on the planet.

If, somewhere in the galaxy, a civilization existed in which Individual Difference and Independence were universal virtues, and if scouts traveled to Earth and took a cursory look, they would report back: “Slave Culture.”

Of course, conformity can operate under a variety of names: “Unity.” “Common goals.” “Shared values.”

These are euphemisms and covers. They point to a kind of mind control—illusions people foster in themselves to explain and celebrate their own slavery.

Those who claim externally imposed propaganda and other methods account for slave mentality are only telling half the story. People form themselves in groups of various kinds, and resonant behavior is expected in those groups. People willingly and even eagerly enlist. They program themselves. Ignoring this factor is actually another familiar feature of Earth Culture.

“I am the way I am because of other people…they made me do it.”

Another excuse given for Earth Culture: people must pull together to survive. However, this doesn’t require group conformity to an extreme degree, spilling over into every aspect of behavior and thought.

Analyzing Human Action – The Mirror Of Your Soul

By: Zy Marquiez
December 7, 2015

“Imagination decides everything.”
– Blaise Pascal

As a powerful individual, your ability to choose – to carve out your own reality – is what made you who you are. Along the way, those endless choices have brought you upon an avenue chock full of possibilities that helped you mold yourself into who you chose to be come and what you ultimately stand for.

Through our personal roller-coaster journeys called life, we often find things/ideas/symbols/art pieces that echo our very soul through and through.

Hold that thought for a second.

Am sure someone has asked you to ponder upon the following for a moment. If nobody has, then take a minute to think, or as long as you need for you to narrow it down.

What is your personal song? The song that is you in every way shape and sound?

If you can’t narrow it down for whatever reason, consider the perfect book, the perfect verse, photograph, view, or moment shared with a significant other. Does that widen the breadth of options?

Now that you have the answer, what is it? Do you know this art piece like the back of your hand? Of course you do. That’s why is your favorite moment.

Why is this important?   Because we are going to undertake a mental exercise for a moment.

This song [or whatever you chose] will represent everything you think is perfect about life. This song is the upper echelon of existence, pure bliss, mellifluous rapture, the works. This song ultimately represents you and the perfect reality in your mind.  This song is the material representation of your very essence: your soul.

This song should be so powerful, that it should be able to fix all problems, mend all rifts, and heal all wounds. Everything.

In fact, am certain that for nigh everyone, these songs are so meaningful/powerful that they have helped us through some dire straits.

Now sit listening to it for quite a while. In fact, listen to it as long as you want. Could this song, really in all its infinite glory, be a synopsis of everything that is perfect in life for you? Could you listen to this song for the rest of your life and do nothing else?

A version of the previous idea was posed by Jon Rappoport [nomorefakenewscom] during an interview a while back. That is when his words/idea really resonated with me.

At first blush, the possibility seemed quite likely that in my case listening to the song, forever, might be possible. Had to ruminate quite a while about it however.

After some time, figured out that personally, even if it was the perfect song – in all its infinite glory – it would eventually get tiresome and it would bore me out of my skull.

Why is this? Because we know there is more out there. Having had experienced different ideas/escapes/latitudes that we consider perfect, we realize that life is about…variety. It’s about change. Is about breathtaking moments, which are the opposite side of the coin of the events that cause entropy/chaos.

The most perfect moment, the most perfect photograph, the most perfect kiss, is all bound upon the idea that is detachable from reality in away. In that way, carrying it around in your mental inbox heightens your life by having experiencing such personal perfection within your reality structure.

Yet, given the fact that life itself is beautiful because of the imperfections [one can’t appreciate the good without having experienced the bad], those personal and unique quintessential moments resound within our very soul since those are the exception.

That’s what makes perfect moments – a perfect song/photograph/verse/time shared – so special. Because it’s a symbol of who you are in a way. Or better said, it’s a symbol of what you believe one fragment of perfection is. It’s the brainchild of imagination, bliss and perfection exemplified.

The beauty of it all? There’s more.

There is always more.

There are more options. More songs. More books. More verses. More photographs. More moments.   More avenues/journeys which can guide you into new unknown wonders.

With so many untold possibilities and versions of what people hold as perfect, why are so many people eager to push their version of what they see as great/perfect onto others?   You would figure people would be eager to share [and not push], explore [and not shun] what can be found, or accomplished together even. Rare is the case it seems.

And no, the former is not about superficial material objects or anything of the like. It’s about ideas/moments that change people. Heck, that change the entire course of their lives.

We’re talking about monumental personal changes that in any way shifts your life/reality tectonically into a whole new continental landscape of possibilities.

—————————————————————————-

Now that you have a centerpiece for your dreambuilding operation, what you to do? Is it time to let that song/moment cycle through endlessly, for the rest of time? Or is it time to venture into the ceaseless unknown to see what other gems you may find?

Better yet: are you going to share your idea/knowledge with others? How about sharing it with those that lift you up? Those individuals would certainly know you best , and certainly appreciate you for who you are in your essence.

Either way, it’s a beautiful thing to have so many choices and to be able to choose, rather than to have anything – ideology/idea/religion – pushed onto you as if your freedoms are limited, or as if you have no other choice. As if your mind can’t make a choice on its own. As if you have no personal power as an individual. As if your wisdom is non-existent. As if life/reality must fit in a box, and anything that doesn’t fit within that particular type of box doesn’t belong there.

How about this: why not think of the most perfect of everything that you can think of, make sure you have that/those idea[s] solidly in your mind, and hold it there. Thence, do everything possible to think of something better, something greater, something vastly more interesting/boundless than what you just thought before. Now isn’t that stretching imagination a bit?

That’s better. That’s a lot better.

It’s like taking a photograph, and turning it into a universe.

Seeing a snippet of the latitude that imagination provides can do wonders. It truly can. Like a torpedo, it hones in and focuses on those things that drive you that separate free individuals from the pack.

If you’re a musician, this is the moment you write a new tune. If you’re an artists, this is where you can paint a boundless landscape on that blank canvas. If you’re a writer, this is where you put pen to paper, and get to work manifesting reality at the stroke of a pen.

What do all those examples have in common? Creation via your imagination.

The question isn’t why. The question is, why not?

The choice is yours.

Be mindful:

“Logic will get you from A to Z. Imagination will get you everywhere.”
– Albert Einstein
