You cannot conquer the mind of a man, if you do not know his heart
…and you cannot win over his heart, if so you do not know his mind
When we think of hard times in the West, we think of homelessness, unemployment or reading about the daily terror attack in the newspaper. We do not think of situations in terms of third world countries, as we perceive our way of life to be above a state, where our societies could easily revert back to the Middle Ages… Although a significant percentage of the global population understand that this may be inevitable, as a result of our modern lifestyle, we simply don’t want the carousel-ride to end just yet.
This leads me to the question, when can we be fully prepared to watch our civilisation fall? A week, a month, or even few years, after finding out? How long until our attachments to the way we live fade? How long until our aversion to the violence and genocide that routinely happens in other countries no longer has a hold on us? Truth be told, we may as well wait for the return of the old Gods… No attachment or aversion disappears on its own. (Exceptions make the rule!) Few reach the heights of comfort without any external stimuli that exhaust their worldly desires.
The war-drums are warming up. Every beat ushers in a new age…Yet, it’s arrival will be marked by the death of millions and destruction of almost everything we’ve come to know. Whether we are ready is irrelevant to our leaders as well as our enemies, as long as the outcome compares to what they’ve had in mind.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is war… Not the average long-distance or turf war, but the genocide of all ethnicities that do not submit to political correctness and/or religious authority.
In view of cultural traditions all over the world, Merkel, Clinton and Abbot paint a picture of women in the modern age… Women in power have become patsies that are incapable of making intelligent decisions with forethought and common sense. We are now represented by women that can be bought for a price and it’ll seal their fate as well as our own.
In Islam, women are commonly mistreated and forced to engage in activities that they’d rather not, but the current imperialistic conquest has given them the time to breathe, as their fathers, husbands, uncles and sons focus their attention elsewhere… That won’t last long. However, for victims of prolonged sexual slavery, those few weeks or months, when they’re not raped several times a day/night, is a blessing… Fear of pain and suffering clouds their minds to such a degree that extreme forms of Stockholm syndrome can hardly compare to how deeply they have been brainwashed. Sadly, they will not be the last. Without anything but blind faith to hold onto, no one resists brainwashing indefinitely…
Whatever happens, it is only temporary. Regardless of what it is, it cannot last. Nothing does. Knowing this, we can survive the unspeakable and the insufferable. Although whatever and whoever is inflicting pain would like you to believe that they can do so forever… They truly cannot.
As long as you communicate as little information as possible (in the form of opinions, plans), you limit the knowledge others have about you. Information, even false information, is revealing. If you are expected to provide information, don’t give any. Don’t think that by giving information or conforming, religious oppression stops…To the contrary, that gives the impression that the more pressure is applied, the more you will give. It is an endless process.
It is important to remember systematically subjecting an individual to maltreatment is intended to destroy their personality, their sense of identity, their confidence and their ability to function. When we don’t convey or openly share who we are, then those attempting to change us are at a disadvantage. In the case of forced conversion, this is more difficult. It is easier to comply and do as is expected, but it never ends there.
For those that wish to enforce laws, which disempower women of all races with the purpose of enabling immediate gratification for the opposite gender under religious pretences, submission is the key to victory. If an individual does not comply and continues to fight, regardless of how excessive the punishment may become, there is often no other choice than to kill them. However, when there is a scarcity of women, creating a martyr can have side-effects. The more martyrs are created in the name of a just cause, the more follow suit. It should be noted here that life-threatening circumstances can break brainwashing as much as it can reinforce it.
Starvation: In muslim countries, it is common practice to deprive Christians of more than the bare essentials to force their religious conversion to Islam. Often, they are treated worse than African-American slaves, as a result of their religious orientation. Whereas black slaves could sing, practice their own religion and even build families with their own kind, Islam does not allow their slaves to have any of the above. In fact, life-threatening maltreatment is encouraged to force women to convert in the hope that they’ll be abused less frequently.
People die from starvation and prolonged malnutrition every day… In an age, where food waste is prevalent, most are not familiar with how starvation affects mental processes. Most that have experienced anything remotely similar often look at the way we live with disgust. Internally, they fear that they’ll return to their former living conditions, which could easily lead to a very painful death. Only a small percentage would suffer through such an ordeal again without being willing to do anything to avert such a fate.
First of all, it takes a great deal of strength as well as self-control to starve, when there is the illusion of an alternative… After not having eaten for days, the mere sight, smell or sound of food yields psycho-physical reactions, as if a deep, silent rage is brewing on the inside. Hatred for those depriving you, when they have plenty to share, can seem like the only thing keeping you alive. Without that feeling, people often give up… They reach a point, when don’t merely lose hope, they lose something that can’t be regained without years of trauma recovery.
It takes approx. 65 days to die from starvation as long as you keep hydrated. When water is scarce, that time can be halved easily. Without any resources, an individual can survive from 22-26 days without any sustenance. In countries, such as India, it is permitted to end one’s life through a holy fast when spiritual liberation in this life is no longer possible. As irrelevant as this anecdote may sound, this practice has provided interesting information to answer related research questions. For the average individual, it is almost impossible to refrain from eating after days, when food is put in front of them. For example, after groups of survivors were freed from the KZs in Germany, they were provided with food and water. The problem was that they had been starved to such an extent, their bodies couldn’t process solids anymore. Most of what they ate, they regurgitated…Only a handful survived. Primarily those that were too ill to eat anything survived as they did not consume anything until the second rescue team arrived with a nutritional powder that they stirred into the drinking water. After their bodies had adjusted to digesting the liquid solution that provided the nutrients needed for the nutrient absorption, digesting solids no longer had such devastating effects.
On a separate note, food or drink are often used as tools to taunt people in captivity… Although it is often recommended not to eat or drink anything in captivity, when the body-mind complex has been deprived of sustenance for long enough, there is an inner drive to ingest whatever nutrition is provided. In some cases, prisoners of war have been desperate enough to consume their own urine or even the urine of their captors, when they had no other option. In other words, if you’re hungry or thirsty enough, you’ll consume almost anything edible, as it better than nothing. Restraining yourself from doing that takes a lot of energy initially. Your mind will play tricks on you, as the deprivation elicits extreme emotions. The key is to work through them quietly. Think over every thought that comes to your mind before you utter a single word. More importantly, let painful thoughts go. They won’t lessen your suffering, only perpetuate it.
Not So Crazy Side-Note: The desire to consume food comes from the need for sustenance in the absence of enlightenment. The further one looks into this, one understands that the need for sustenance comes from a deep-desire for self-preservation. The rational mind does not comprehend that physical sustenance is as illusory as our physical reality. It is only necessary as long as we are still on the path to self-realisation. Once we are self-realised, eating and drinking are not only optional, they are restricted to clean, vegetarian choices.
Important Note For Women: Reducing the daily amount of food and water prevents pregnancy and can induce a miscarriage, but it also makes it more likely to give birth to females rather than males, if the pregnancy is carried to term. Feel free to do your own research.
Pain: Discard hope of rescue or religious salvation. Hope is a pipe-dream, when pain becomes unbearable. Thinking clearly becomes impossible, as automatic behaviour takes over. For instance, instinctively speaking in other languages, using religious terms as swear words or praying audibly are prime examples of how we can lose control in ways that may have unfavourable consequences. Escaping pain is impossible by distancing yourself from it, so embrace it. Go beyond like or dislike to a place where none of that matters and pain has no hold on you. Inflicting any kind of pain often involves prolonged time-periods of close, excruciating confinement with no human interaction. Resistance creates tension, which in turn creates more pain… As difficult as it may sound, relax your body. Aim to relax all your muscles and let go of all tension. Let pain be your teacher to attain freedom from suffering.
Whatever happens, the first and most dangerous approach relies on you to go the distance. The closer you let them bring you to death, the more you create a dilemma as to whether you should be saved or not. “Logic dictates that if you aren’t saved, then you have spared yourself a much longer and more painful death. You must, beyond everything, believe in the sanctity of your being to take such an approach. You must be willing to lay your life on the line, from whatever shattered sense of identity you still retain.”
Another approach is to abandon all reasoning. To reduce yourself to a level of instinctual awareness, and try to stay alive. Think nothing. Focus on the breath. Witness every thought as a passing visitor. Do not look to the future, instead empty your mind. “Concentrate only on obtaining oxygen. You will either succumb, or they will deem the operation too high a risk to continue. Again, if they deem you an asset they will not force your death. If they execute you in such a fashion, your execution merely happened early.”
Sleep Deprivation: As the most effective method to break down all mental barriers, sleep deprivation is the cornerstone of warfare. It accompanies almost all forms of torture. Again, resist as little as possible. Throw yourself into disorientation and carry on. It may drive you temporarily insane, but that is still better than the alternatives. You may speak non-sense and see connections that you otherwise wouldn’t, yet as long as you remain at least a little self-aware in a disorientated state, you can minimise the damage.
For those already living near mosques, the loudspeakers echoing across entire street-blocks are just an example of how openly fanatical religious practices can intrude on the day-to-day lives of others without them patrolling the streets. Merely a week of coping with nightly sleep deprivation takes its toll on the mind. After several weeks, things begin to get blurry… Now, imagine that taking part is no longer optional. Imagine that your life depends on cooperating (with a religious institution that you have no respect for). Think of the stress created by physical violence and forced conversion in addition to extreme deprivation as the go-to strategy for Islam. Preying on basic needs by driving a thumbnail into the instinct for self-preservation is common behaviour, as it has worked for thousands of years. The only means to render such warfare strategies useless is to overcome any hold that our basic needs have on us.
The requirement to sleep is the most difficult to work with. The more relaxed we are, the less we are plagued by the need to sleep… Maintaining mental and physical silence greatly assists this process. Also, increased bodily awareness to release tension conserves small amount of energy, which encourages vasodilation, in turn improving circulation.
Isolation: Any form of deprivation is worsened in social isolation. With multiple captors and a single victim, the captive often feels more isolated than in one-on-one situations. As women are frequently kidnapped by religious fanatics and held in groups, it is important to note that every captive will eventually reach a point when converting seems like the only thing that could end their suffering, apart from death. This option seems more ‘acceptable’, as other captives convert. However, as stated previously, subjecting to their will becomes an endless, downward spiral. Pray silently. Speak to yourself. Do whatever is necessary to maintain your sanity, but ensure that you do it quietly in your mind without anyone finding out about it…
Extremes of Heat & Cold: The idea of embracing hopelessness and using your own fatalism to your advantage is only one approach to defend yourself against the temperature extremes. An Eastern method involves the use of Zen meditation, which represents the best solution to endure prolonged extremes of heat. As a coping mechanism for someone locked in a deep freeze, it doesn’t work, because slowing down anything in your body could be suicide. If enough space is provided, the best answer to extreme cold would be to never stop moving. If this is not possible, singing a song or praying has been said to help victims in the past. The abuse of prisoners with extremes of heat and cold illustrates how different situations warrant different methods for holding on.
The recent Ebola casualties and those that are yet to come are rumoured to be in the millions.
Poverty-stricken countries with poor medical support are left exposed. I have received a few emails regarding possible depopulation concerns.
Who profits? Global corporations, military and governmental agencies.
ZMapp received a 42 million dollar grant for health and human services.
“The existence of this patent means that no company can even conduct scientific tests with Ebola viruses without running afoul of U.S. patent laws. Even worse, any company possessing Ebola would probably find its principals arrested and charged as terrorists under the U.S. Patriot Act which has specific provisions regarding “biological terrorism.”This combination of “anti-terrorism” laws and U.S. patent laws creates an actual monopoly of research on Ebola treatments. Only the government itself can authorize such research, and it is of course entirely beholden to pharmaceutical interests. This is why all research funding for Ebola cures is strictly limited to vaccines and pharma drugs. No other alternatives are even tested or considered.”
Trust your instincts. Follow your heart.
Learn how to keep yourself safe from a man-made disease by learning about it. Panic and worry wastes more lives than it saves. If its airborne, then we are all pretty much at the hands of our oppressors. However, with every biochemically engineered disease, humanity evolves to grow a natural immunity. Cases of children born with AIDS have proven that.
Meditation serves as a natural booster for the immune system and can aid the process of building a natural resistance.
And its free!
Have you ever wondered why the placebo effect and AIDS or Ebola are never mentioned in the same sentence? Remember, you hold the power. Keep yourself informed.

Cultivation of Abhyasa
Abhyasa is defined as choosing or cultivating that which leads to sthitau. To understand the meaning of sthitau, it is necessary to combine two principles. Firstly, that of tranquility, calmness, or peace of mind. Secondly, that of stability, steadiness, or being of firm ground. Thus, sthitau means a stable form of tranquility. In other words, it is the pursuit of an equanimity that is with you at all times.
A single thought arises, and the mind goes off into a fantasy about that single thought, creating a whole train of thoughts. We might simply recognize the fact that our mind has strayed and for what reasons, “Mind is starting to fantasize”. (Vikalpa) With the same thought pattern, we may note that, “This thought arose from memory (Smriti). Shall I act on this, or let it go?” We may be listening to an individual, then suddenly, perhaps with a jolt, recognize that we had stopped listening. The mind might have drifted in the direction of the blankness associated with sleep (nidra), though this does not mean we actually fell asleep. We might then remind ourselves to stay awake or remain alert. We might have been working on a task, and notice in a positive way, that for this past few minutes, the mind was fully present, seeing clearly (Pramana), and that the thought patterns were correct or accurate. We notice how useful this is. We might be experiencing some thought process, thinking about some person, or witnessing some thoughts at meditation time.
After a certain amount of time of performing such a practice, you will naturally find that the labeling process becomes non-verbal. It is very useful to literally say the words internally when you label the thoughts. However, the non-verbal labeling comes automatically as you increasingly become a witness to your thought process. During meditation, the thoughts can then easily come and drift away. (This means the mind is awake and alert, as well as clear, which is not meaning dull, lethargic, or in a trance.)
Yoga science maps out many aspects of the mental process so that the student of yoga meditation can encounter, deal with, and eventually go beyond the entire thought process to the joy of the center of consciousness. We learn to label the thoughts, and then gradually learn to go beyond them.
t is important to remember that there is another aspect of labeling and witnessing that has to do with the direct training of your mind. This is the process of deciding and training your mind whether a given thought is Useful or Not Useful. However, ultimately one must face his or her own thought process. There is no other way, as the mind stands between our surface reality and the deepest inner Truth. The methods may be somewhat different on different paths, but encountering and dealing with the mental process is inescapable.
If the “Yes” to the willingness to explore the thoughts and thought process is even a small “Yes,” then one can nurture that small flame of desire until it is a forest fire of desire to know the Self. That single-minded desire for Truth swallows up the smaller desires and opens the door for the grace which guides from within.
This burning desire to know, with conviction is called Sankalpa Shakti. Many people hear of and say they want the awakening of Kundalini Shakti, the spiritual energy within. However, the first form of Shakti, or energy, to cultivate is that of Sankalpa, or determination. It means cultivating a deep conviction to know oneself at all levels, so as to know the Self at the core. It means having an attitude that, “I can do it! I will do it! I have to do it!”
In the oral tradition of Yoga meditation, it is said that you should never just believe what you read or are told, but that you should also not reject these things either. Rather, take the principles, reflect on them, do the practices, and find out for yourself, in direct experience whether or not they are true.
The means of doing this, in this case, is to systematically explore all of the levels of the thinking process, one at a time. Repeatedly you will discover, “Who I am, is different from this particular thought pattern that I am witnessing right now!” Over and over this insight will come, in direct experience, thought after thought, impression after impression.
Gradually, you come to see in your own opinion, observation, conclusion, and experience that, “I am not any of these thoughts!” Then you own it as your own experience and truth.
Good or bad, happy or sad, clear or clouded, none of the thoughts are who we are. It is no longer a theory from some book, or the mere statement of some other person, however great that person may be. This kind of direct experience is the goal spoken of by the ancient Yogis, Sages and Masters of the Himalayas. It comes when the practices of meditation, contemplation, prayer, and mantra converge in one experience of pure witnessing.
Resting in this realization, we also come to see that the habit patterns which define our personality are perfect expressions of this individual person. The beauty of our personality uniqueness is seen, ever more clearly, as we remember our True Self that is beyond, yet always there.
Reality and Space-Time
“The nature of Reality is a game of hide and seek, which is really the only game there is. Now you see it and now you don’t. That which smiles through all faces is only One Reality and the same One is called One without second. There is only One that exists beneath all the forms of the world. There is only One…Here, there, and everywhere incomparable, changeless and everlasting.”
It is stated that as long as there exists the sense of duality, there also exists a space, along with a sense of time. These bind one under certain conditions, hence allowing for mental states, such as fear, agony, and pain.
It is significant to understand the three conditionings of the mind, which are time, space, and causation. For instance “You are afraid of someone because you acknowledge the existence of someone as different from you. If there is only One, who will be afraid of whom?”
When all desires are swallowed by only one wave, and when that wave alone exists, then there will be no time, space, or causation. It prevents one from the realization of the unity in diversity. The secrets of birth and death are revealed only to a fortunate few. “It is a rare individuals, who can lift the veil of time, space, and causation and then know that past, present, and future are but commas and semicolons in a long sentence without a period”
Mindfulness and Concentration
It is very common for teachers of meditation to describe one of two general types of meditation, and to recommend one as being superior to the other.
– Concentration: In this approach, one intentionally focuses the attention on only one object, such as breath, mantra, a chakra center, or an internally visualized image.
– Mindfulness: In this approach, one does not focus the mind on one object, but rather observes the whole range of passing thoughts, emotions, sensations, or images.
Students of meditation often find themselves confused by having to decide which is more suitable for them, having to practice only one or the other. To cause further confusion, mindfulness is often described as coming from one religion or tradition, while concentration from another religion or tradition, which is in actuality inaccurate.
Numerous sages and yogis apply both methods in yoga and meditation. In fact, they are not seen as different choices at all. Mindfulness and concentration are companions in the same one process that leads inward to the center of consciousness. If one stays only in the shallow, beginning levels of meditation, then choosing between one or the other can seem to make sense. Yet, if you wish to go deeper in meditation, you will find that both processes are essential to obtain progress.
If one practices only mindfulness, the mind is trained to always have this surface level activity present. Having this activity constantly present may be seen as normal, and the attention simply does not go beyond the mind-field. Attention can back off from experiencing deeper meditation and samadhi so as to remain in the fields of sensation and thoughts. However, if one practices only concentration or one-pointedness, the mind is trained to not experience this activity of thoughts, sensations, emotions, and images. The activity is seen as something to be avoided, and the attention may not even be ditation and samadhi.
By practicing both mindfulness and concentration, one is able to experience the vast impressions, learning the vital skill of non-attachment, while also using concentration to focus the mind in such a way as to be able to transcend the whole of the mind field, where there is only stillness and silence, beyond all of the impressions. Finally, one can come to experience the center of consciousness…
When exploring the mind, mindfulness may be emphasized, while remaining focused. Then, if a particular thought pattern or samskara is to be examined so as to weaken its power over the mind, concentration is the tool with which this examination is done. This allows an increase in vairagya, non-attachment. When settling the mind, trying to pierce the layers of our being, including senses, body, and breath, concentration carries the attention inward through the layers. When attention moves into that next deeper level of our being, then concentration and mindfulness once again work together to explore that layer, so as to once again move beyond, or deeper.
