Montage of the different types of western ideologies based on fear and punishment

Feminism, Fascism, Christianity, Capitalism and Satanism are all about good versus evil

There are malevolent entities who wish to continue the illusion that we are all separate and not one in the same. They suppress technology and the true nature of humankind, while imprisoning us in an illusory system of separation from our source.

A manufactured 360 virtual reality.

But in the end, we all come from the same source, and answer to the same laws.

It is up to each of us to break the chains of our own imprisonment, stand up to those who attempt to divide and conquer us, and reclaim our humanity.

Fear-based ideologies

Wars are based in fear: fear of loss, death, shortages, of not having enough. Western ideologies are also based in fear. Feminism, fascism, Christianity, Zionism, Scientology and Satanism are all about good versus evil – fear of punishment is what keeps us in line.

Tapping into Ancient Wisdom

In Asia, cultural ideologies began with Hinduism around 5,000 years ago. Buddhism extended the Hindu philosophy east into China around 3,000 years ago. Finally, Taoism emerged in China around 2,000 years ago. Both Hinduism and Buddhism assert that the physical world is a distorted reflection of a larger spiritual reality. Taoism extends (and simplifies) the ideals of both. Through meditation, feng shui and other such practices, the Taoist objective is to achieve harmony with nature.

Albert Einstein: “A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe’ — a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and feelings, as something separated from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

Modern West vs. Ancient East

Today, Western societies are structured around a core purpose of building wealth. All of modern society (including ranking systems and reward/ punishment ones) are built to serve this core purpose.

Wealth-building societies are good at economics, science, technology and war, but poor at making people happy. In fact, western society exerts tremendous pressure on people to work hard for money as the driving priority in their lives.

On the other hand, Taoist philosophy stresses the value of natural simplicity while rolling with the flow of whatever happens, joyfully. This perspective values human nature as a whole, and not just the parts that can be used for gain in a highly competitive society.

Getting into the Tao

Throughout history, human societies have been one of two basic types: genetically coded primary societies, and man-made secondary societies. The former are governed by human nature and instinct. The ideal number of people in a primary society is believed to be around 150. At that number, members are linked emotionally and psychologically via regular face-to-face interaction.

Secondary societies are created by human thought, around a logical structure that is built to support an ideology. As artificial constructs, institutionalised enforcement with police and military are often necessary to keep the society operational.

According to the Tao, an unknowable “energy” pervades the Universe and gives rise to everything within it. It is not sentient, but rather a naturally occurring pattern that drives what we know as nature. Taoists believe that living in harmony with this “energy” results in a harmonious vibration that leads to a natural and prosperous life. Conversely, the frequencies of major disorders like cancer, strokes, heart attacks and depression are all related to anxiety, chronic dissatisfaction and unhappiness.
