Remember Life

With every Taiji practise I ask questions. It helps me not to lose connection with the principles-easily done when the mind wanders! I also do my own research which has always been encouraged by all the teachers I have had the privilege of sharing my Taiji journey with. It is good to get another perspective and expand ones’ own knowledge of understanding.

"Be who you are and say what you feel,
because those who mind don’t matter
and those who matter don’t mind"
(Dr Seuss)

For the last thirty years I have also asked questions and done my own research into how the world is run-a free thinker you could say. When I was 12 years old, I found the book 1984 by George Orwell in my grandparents bookcase-the words ‘big brother’ intrigued me’ and has stayed with me up until this day. Since meeting my partner, Kevin, who is an IFA (Independent Financial Advisor) ten years ago, I have gained a valuable insight into the economic world and how it is run behind the scenes. In that world they call what is happening the ‘reset’ button! We share the same beliefs and our joint research has given us a clearer understanding of what is being played out here with this pandemic (or dare I say plandemic) and it has helped us not to get caught up in the mind controlling fear that has terrorised so many, of all ages, since the outset and continues to do so. A month ago, Professor Robert Dingwall, an eminent sociologist and adviser on the Governments New and Emerging Respiratory Threats Advisory Group, pointed out that- ‘No such guidance is given during a flu pandemic, so why such terrorising advice over Covid-19?’ He clearly knew what a Dr Vernon Coleman found in the government report, that the virus was downgraded to a flu bug on the 19th March 2020.

In Taiji we are training to use our mind in a positive way, directing our energy inwards, letting go of the external. The mind is a wonderful thing. It responds in sometimes unpredictable ways though and can be controlled very easily if fear takes hold. Do you remember who said: ‘Through clever and constant application of propaganda people can be made to see paradise as hell and also the other way round, to consider the most wretched life as paradise.’? It was Adolf Hitler, who was a master at mass manipulation and use of subliminal techniques. And it was Hitler who also commented that it was good fortune for governments that the mass of people did not think. The Nazi’s were very good at controlling the minds. ‘People more readily fall victim to the big lie than the small lie,’ said Hitler, `since it would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.’ Goebbels, who was Hitlers propaganda chief, once said that if you repeat a lie often enough then people will believe it. It has not taken much research to discover the colossal untruths and lies surrounding Covid-19.

So, my friends, it is time to turn off the news-the television programming. Mass media mind control is the most powerful tool to manipulate and induce fear. According to Professor Karol Sikora, a former World health Organisation advisor and cancer specialist, ‘people have become too scared, the strategy needs to be “go out and live your life, that risk is inevitable and cannot be eliminated”. I have to agree. Do your own research, listen to another perspective-there is plenty out there if you know where to look. The draconian measures and guidelines that have dominated all our lives in the space of three months, and which will continue to do so in the ‘new normal’ (a very subtle subliminal message) way of living, will have a much longer catastrophic impact on our young, and future generations, then Covid-19.

"We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children"
(Native American Proverb) 

We are at a very pivotal time right now, a time where we really need to regain some focus and to find balance. A time to connect mentally and spiritually, to be strong and resilient and come back together to do Taiji. We must remember life before this fear was generated. It was our time and space to switch off, thinking nothing more than trying to co-ordinate our hands and feet! We laughed and hugged-remember? It is the time to slowly rebuild and sessions are now being held outside at Lifton and Bratton Clovelly. Check out the website for locations and times. When you feel ready please join us. Make decisions out of love, not fear-move forward out of love, not fear.

‘There is no greater illusion then fear. 
Whoever can see through fear will always be safe’ 
(Lao-Tzu) 


Love, light and healing and Summer Solstice blessings to you all
