In the laws of the ego, you are not allowed to die. We spend millions making our ego feel special. In the laws of the ego, you cannot assail the ego's emotions. Our emotions are nothing more than an extension of the ego's opinions -- nothing more. We elevate our emotions to a great scale. For the most part, our emotions are theatrical manifestations of the ego's opinions. For example, I want you to mow my lawn, you don't want to do it, and so I get aggressive or make threats. You get scared and mow the lawn. Simple. They are forms of manipulation. Even what we call romance is only an opinion of the ego. You have an opinion and you start cranking the emotion. So we live as prisoners of these opinions.
We establish these ideas such as "I have to be this . . . people have to see me in this way . . . things should be like that. . . ," and we create a legislation, a parliament. So our lives as individuals are exactly the same as our government. If you see your government as corrupt, if you see it as ineffectual, weak, full of itself, it is only a manifestation of the national mind-set.
All of the democracies are the same. In fact, we don't even have democracies -- all we have is a benign version of fascism. Why? Because a few fascist bastards control everything through secrecy, through manipulation of information, and obscuring the facts. You see them on television every night, and it is the wolf talking. But who talks for the chickens? We don't have anybody that talks for us.
Have you ever heard anybody get up on television and say, "Let's get rid of this bunch of twits and scrub the systems?" It doesn't honor our people, it doesn't allow them to be free, it doesn't do anything for them. This perpetual injection of fear that you get is nonsense. Most humans die in their bed at a ripe old age -- at least 90 percent in Western democracies. The idea that you are going to be raped and murdered and shot and killed by a bus is rubbish. There are very few people who need that experience.
I fly for a living, and every time I get on a plane that is empty, I feel incredibly safe because no empty planes crash. They just don't. They are always full when they go down. Why? Because there are millions of spirits who think, I've had enough of this crap; I am out of here. And their inner self says, Here, try Flight 108 going to Timbuktu, that'll work. It will be terribly quick. You'll have a few moments where you are scared shitless, but then you'll be out of there.
The fact is, we are prisoners of our political egos, we are prisoners of these systems that are based on control. But here we are, fringe dwellers who feel different and who are different. We can't knock these systems down just yet, and we don't need to. The rebirth of Camelot, the rebirth of chivalry, the rebirth of goodness, the rebirth of fairness -- real fairness, not emotional or political fairness, but real fairness based on energy -- is coming.
But you'll have to be patient -- and if you are an infinite being, you can be patient forever.
