You have Power over your Personal Cage, though the Oligarchy teaches that you do not. The Cage exists to the extent that you believe the superstition that the Cage is Who You Are, and likewise, you are free of the Cage when you can acknow- ledge the reality of the Cage’s existence.
Each attribute that is reported by you to the world is the making of your Cage.
“Nobody understands/loves/respects/wants me.”
“That is beyond me.” (i.e. I’ll never ...)
The list is endless, for the individual and for Mankind.
The Cage is what keeps you the way that you are; the Cage is what keeps others stuck in their ruts; the Cage is why the World is so damn tough on us all.
The Dalai Lama walks into a room and his Cage requires him to perform as the Dalai Lama. Dubya is so restricted, his mental circuitry so pressured by psychosis, that his handlers (performing inside their cages) pull the strings and push the buttons so that Dubya feigns sentience.
There is no way out of your personal Cage, and the same is true for the Dalai Lama and for Dubya and his gang and for Bill Gates.
This is why the mythology of Fate was created, to explain the automaticity of one’s seeming Unfree Will.
Your Cage exists, your actions are limited by (if not caused by) your Personal Cage.
Too bad, just get over it.
“Freedom exists in the exercise thereof.” (As I have said many times.)
That is precisely how Free Will works as well. Get that we are not Free and then declare that you are an exception.
Get that we are a mass of sheeple, and then declare that you are an Individual.
Get that we all exist inside of a Cage, and then declare that you are not your Cage.
There is this very cool existential option, and that is to shut down the Little Voice In Your Head (see Issue #30: “Radio Silent”), to ignore your False Mind, and in that moment of clarity, of being Present, to cause your world to be empty and unbounded, to be outside of your Cage.
The practical methodology for causing this state or event is to empower another.
Empowerment is the access to standing outside of your Cage. Every Act of Empowerment provides Power for another/- others and for yourself, so that you and they then have access to existential (unbounded) reality.
(How you know that an act is one of empowerment is that the other person is empowered; when no Power shows up, then it was not an Act of Empowerment.)
It is possible to create such moments rapidly in series or succession, or to create and maintain such a Clearing for periods of Time, or to create a River of Silence, which you can learn to step into and out of along one’s journey.
This can indeed be done.
This can be done by you.
Only the Individual can do this.
No other can do this for you, nor can you perform this existential act for another.
You can (and must) empower others, which merely provides them the opportunity to continue. Such Empowerment also provides you with access to your existential Self, and thus to living (for a moment or more) outside of your Cage.
Not doing this has you living inside the restrictions of your Personal Cage and of your Societal Cage.
Empowerment of others (and secondarily of yourself) gives you the Freedom and the ability to step outside of your Cage to see what life can be like when not living by the dictates of your False Mind (the internal agent of the Culture-Structure, which is the external agent of the Eternal Beast that strives to enslave Mankind).
The state motto of New Hampshire is “Live free or die”.
For the Working Mind, these are the only true options.
