Over the past two years, I have found myself regularly blogging and more recently vlogging about different subjects that people really don’t want to see, hear or consider.
To be fair, I often hesitate before creating any content that can or would be considered predictive in any way.
But it has become increasingly difficult to avoid discussing the effects and consequences that you can see will come about as a direct or indirect result of events taking place around us, or the decisions that our Politicians and Government have made.
Perhaps the most important and most relevant to what is going on around us now, has been when I have shared my thoughts on the coming financial and systemic collapse. A collapse that will be accompanied by a cost-of-living crisis and massive fall in the standard of living for us all, and an accompanying reset of the way that everything works that will inevitably affect us all.
The problem – as a content creator, when discussing such things – is that words like Reset, Correction, Crisis and Crash, conjure up the idea or expectation that change of the kind being discussed will literally arrive in the moment or overnight.
It won’t. Change is happening continually. Change is most radical or most effective when we aren’t even conscious of it happening.
From the point of view and the experience that I offer to share each time that I write or speak, I do so knowing that I have an end view or result in mind, that will come into being through a series of cumulative events, rather than it all arriving at once and with such force that it feels like being hit head-on by a car.
Many people are wandering around on social media today, proclaiming that they are ‘awake’ to what Governments are doing and what they have done. The uncomfortable reality, however, is that anyone who has had what feels like a eureka or watershed moment about a subject they feel passionate about is usually only awakened or has simply had their eyes opened about some of the truths relating to that subject. Very rarely will that experience have opened up their understanding beyond just another layer of hidden truths and certainly not about anything more than that one thing.
We may have eyes and ears, but can neither see nor hear anything that is happening around us, unless the experience we have is both relevant and relates to the subject at hand.
Yes, we may see a news headline and believe we know and understand what it is all about. But without that event or anything about it having touched our own lives and experience in any way, face value is as deep as our understanding will be about it. Until that is, events arrive in our lives that change that experience and understanding that we have about the subject in some way.
So, as we begin to transit the realities of the new world that the catalyst, which was the Covid Pandemic created, it is perhaps the right moment to acknowledge firstly that things have already changed. That they are not going back to how they were before March 2020. That nothing will ever be the same again.
Next, and perhaps more importantly, we should take time to stop, reflect upon and consider what news of sky-rocketing inflation, set against a situation where many people cannot already afford to feed themselves or heat their homes (never mind everything else…) really means and what it now tells us about where we are.
The reality that we must face, is that massive change is already underway.
Change that the political class we are currently burdened with helped to create.
Change brought into being by ineptitude, self-serving stupidity and the lack of ability of this political class to execute the real requirements of public representative roles.
We are already on the first steps of a systemic collapse today. A collapse that cannot and will not be dealt with or addressed by the solutions, ideas and motivations of Politicians and an establishment that have a vested interest in doing everything they can to return things to where they once were.
As I have already said, those days are gone. And what we are experiencing today will in hindsight prove to be very important stages in the journey to where a very new and very different way for us all to live and so things was born. They key is to bear in mind that this massive and probably breath-taking change will not have arrived overnight – even if to some, the moment they lack food, money or fuel will make it feel that way.
The biggest and most troubling question about awakening to what all this means, is how many will realise what’s happening and how many of those will be ready and prepared to think and do things differently, before we all wake up to a serious amount of pain.
Think differently, Vote differently, Then be able to live your life differently. The choice – and therefore the power, is all yours.
