Healing Terrorism

I’m Richard Lloyd Jones and this is Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head. I moved to Brazil from New York in 2001, 2 1/2 months before 9/11.

Talk about timing.

But if it was timing, it was not anything conscious. My desire was to learn more about the work of an extraordinary scientist I’d become aware of a short time before moving here.

That scientist was Dr. Norberto Keppe. What Keppe proposes in his far-reaching science is, quite simply, a solution to the fundamental human problem, which is that we act in contradiction to our essence and, therefore, we act against life. This goes to the root of the issue. This Inversion is the cause of all our conflicts and crises today, so it’s not a matter simply of protecting this or that species or saving this or that ecosystem or cutting our greenhouse gasses or resolving geo-political scheming. We’re going to have to change virtually everything if we are to attain the well-being that we have a right to enjoy. The transformation must be basic. It must be total.

Today, we’ll try to transform and transcend the mounting terrorism crisis on our planet.

Peeking Behind the Curtains of Power

Ever since Dorothy pulled back the curtain to reveal a perfectly ordinary Wizard of Oz manipulating switches to make him seem more powerful, the image has served to portray a reality. Somewhere, in the shadows in not behind an actual curtain, unseen forces are in control.

Perhaps when they are officially unmasked, they will show themselves to be as feeble and full of bluster as the wizard from Frank Baum’s classic, but while they stay hidden they exert enormous influence, as the Wizard of Oz did actually – until Dorothy blew his cover.

The Bilderbergers, the Illuminati, the Elders of Zion – most of use have no idea what goes on in their closed meetings. Or even if some of them actually exist. This ground is ripe for the wildest imaginings of the most paranoid of conspiracy theorists, but it would be foolish to dismiss the central idea out of hand – that our world is really controlled by individuals we seldom see.

It’s a nefarious world of secret influence and elite privilege that survives only on deceit.

Recovering True Humanity

 I’m Richard Lloyd Jones, and this is Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head. 

With so much tension and confusion in  modern day life, it seems appropriate to do our show,  which deals so directly with the core issues  of human existence. In fact, perhaps any of us who don’t feel deeply disturbed by our situation are dangerously alienated or excessively cold-hearted. That would appear to be the case with the power structure that governs our affairs today.

Norberto Keppe, whose science of Analytical Trilogy underpins our show, considers that the way power is being used today to be the biggest problem facing us.  We live in a world dominated by the pathology of power, which is even more responsible for our modern crises than our individual problems.  Still, we condone this abuse by not learning more about it and by following it. Ignorance is no excuse, and we must become smarter about psycho-socio pathology, the purpose of our show today.

The Wrong Vibration Between Power and People – Highlight Version

Our latest Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head program explores a crucial question: in order for society to improve, does the individual need to change first, or does the political structure – the pathology of power – need to shift? Norberto Keppe‘s science of psycho-socio pathology helps us understand this crucial question, and brings a deep wisdom to the consideration that few people are discussing.

We hope to contribute to changing that.

Here’s an excerpt from our latest Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head program, The Wrong Vibration Between Power and People. If you like it and want more, the full program’s available at www.healingthroughconsciousness.com, through iTunes, or here.

The Wrong Vibration Between Power and People

There is, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, a massive movement around the world of the people struggling to free themselves from the shackles of oppression. The latest initiative – the “I won’t pay” movements surging in Greece and a few other countries in Europe, specifically targeting Metro ticket turnstiles.

 

And, of course, the surging up of indignation causes conniption fits in those in power – from extreme, like the violent crackdowns in Syria and even in #Occupy locations in North America, to more hidden, like the reports leaking out from the Bilderbergers and Trilateral Commission that subtly suggest that all this is a thread to global stability.

 

This is, of course, a huge crock of horse hooey, since it’s the stability of the elite’s iron hold on power that’s really being threatened. And from the people’s point of view, how could that ever be bad. But we the people play into these Machiavellian tactics when we follow unthinking into that dark night. And it’s this we’d like to consider today.

Removing the Rose-Colored Glasses: The Dangers of Social Alienation

I wonder sometimes if young people today admit to naivete. It seems very uncool to be innocent these days. Kurt Cobain maybe summed it up best when he said he was always busy acting like he wasn’t naive. Like he’d seen it all, like he was there first.

I think that speaks for a generation. You can’t be gullible anymore, God forbid. You have to know what’s cool and what’s not and prove that in what you wear and drive and love

Of course, there’s the really complicated aspects to consider, like your best friend who keeps walking blindly into disastrous relationships with men who throw down her heart and stomp that sucker flat. This is pretty pathological, and I think speaks of a deep self-destructive alienation, not guilelessness at all.

We are all of us vulnerable to this kind of personal heave-ho based on the level of denial we are in about reality – reality in this sense meaning how we really are behind our masks, and how we see the true state of our upside-down society. And this we will never see unless we undertake some profound self-analysis.

Standing up for Truth

One of the most relevant themes we’re focused on here in Brazil these days is the exploding movement for freedom reverberating around the world. Martin Luther King stated that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.

Isn’t it this demand that is echoing through all these diverse societies these days? And the oppressors, to echo King’s language, are not giving up easily, as is being witnessed by Occupy activists everywhere.

Dr. King, though, I don’t think really understood why it has always been that way. What causes the oppressor to cling so tenaciously to power is not well understood or broadcast, and needs to be. Norberto Keppe‘s science of Analytical Trilogy does that.

But the other side of the coin is that to be a fighter against the barbed wired of oppression takes some cojones. And it is this courage that must be summoned from deep inside us if we’re to vanquish injustice once and for all.
