I see the Forest and the Trees, a Grand Illusion

Date: April 24, 2018

Spring – April 24, 2018

“Today, among other things, I saw a cloud and a rock. Understanding that neither has any permanence I recognized the illusion – and therefore the entirety of these appearances.”
~Crow~

I once found myself standing on a perfectly straight road. It looked as though someone had used a ruler’s edge to lay its way. I stood there on the middle line looking down its course to vanishing point. To my right was on old derelict gas station then many years from use and surrounded by cactus. I called out to my friend who was behind the old Skeleton of a building. As he emerged he produced an old sledge hammer and various other implements from the business that once provided gas for those venturing into the desert.

Standing on that road I began to consider vanishing point. I then decided that if I could see this point I could go there and set out to do just that. I started walking toward the destination. Some minutes later I looked back to discover both my friend and the old gas station had shrunk! I quickly spun around toward my destination but low and behold I was no closer. Considering the problem I turned again to walk back to my friend and my starting point. On arrival we began to discuss the problem at hand. My friend would not accept that he had shrunk along with the building until he too had travelled my path in order to look back in wonder. A plan was hatched and determination set in. Two minds where now focused on the goal of travelling to vanishing point.

As we worked out a plan of action we decided we would travel together just in case we disappeared upon arrival. We then gathered the implements we would need from the disintegrating gas station to employ our plan – a large hammer, two long metal spikes, a hub cap and a length of old rope.

It had been decided that in order to ensure the road stayed put we would need to drive the spikes through the soft desert black top deep into the ground. The rope was weighted with the hub cap and thrown over the old overhang that used to shelter gas pumps. The hub cap was pulled up off the ground to my height and the rope secured. In this way, we reasoned, as the building shrunk the hub cap would eventually hit the ground giving us a gauge.

With the tasks completed we again set our attention on the goal, vanishing point. Once more we discussed the possibility of our total disappearance upon arrival at vanishing point. Satisfied that we could face this possibility together we set off down the road to a now sinking sun. It was some time before we realized the hub cap had hit the ground and still we were no closer to our goal. I remember sitting down in the middle of the road and closing my eyes, it was 1977 and I was 14 years old.

Here in 2018 it is obvious that the his-story recorded above is unacceptable on the face of it – like so much of history. None the less there is no dismissing the deeper ideas about our so called reality in this tale. Like the tale, our reality could easily share a common descriptive title – “Appearances”. For this is truly where we exist. In a world of appearances that have no permanence and therefore no reality. And yet, here we are. Which of course begs the question, is there anything permanent in this world?

In my view there is and I am not alone in this. It seems there may have been a time, long ago, when it was commonly understood that at the foundation of this illusion there is in fact reality or permanence and it is found in the very thing that creates this place – our minds.

If this is correct it should be instantly recognized why so many lies are told in this world. Put simply the false nature of materialism, science and all manner of modern programming is designed to ensure few ever understand that our minds create this place and everything in it. And currently our minds are being manipulated into creating a worldwide culture of fear which serves as a foundational lowering of minds followed by slavery – a prison for our minds which will no longer co-create this world.

I have proven this to myself but for a better world to emerge from the current onslaught of tyranny, censorship and the diminishing of human rights, many more minds must grasp the power they have to create and the realization of the illusory nature of this material existence. Fear and materialism are the weapons of choice for those who would enslave us all, in the modern age.

So many of us wonder what this life is about. What is it for? The truth is that if we did not have to live in this modern construct designed to ensure no one has time to figure these things out, many more of us would know. The truth is you have just been told something important about this life and this world. What ideas and thoughts will create tomorrow? I hope with all my heart it will not be based on fear and lies.

I was asked recently about information sources on the tail of stating that news, media and nearly all official sources are based in fear, nonsense and materialism and therefore without value. So I will offer this TRUE historical account that is free from lies and deception.

There is a small family of monks that I know who have taught me lessons that I do not need to question or examine for falsehood. As so many are aware I recently proved the equinoxes are broken and do not match historical accounts. Knowing this the problem of understanding when spring starts was bothering me. Without a Vernal equinox how could I be sure? As fate would have it a monk told me the truth about when spring starts. What monk you ask? Well a family of monks that live in my yard, they are Chipmunks. Each year they go into hibernation as winter sets in and as I wondered when spring would begin it dawned on me. The Chipmunks will tell me, and they did. Each day I looked to see if they had come out of their stone wall winter chamber. I even put out seed. One day not too long ago the chipmunks joined the birds eating the seed and I then new spring had arrived without lies or beguilement. I had been told the truth. There is no lie in what we call nature and this, by extension, gives us the map we need. After all, when information sources become suspect or corrupted it is of the highest value to have a map that shows you where to go for information free of lies and deception. The purest monks I know gave me that map and now I give it to you. Truly –

    Welcome to the Grand Illusion by Styx
    Come on in and see whats happening
    Pay the price, get your tickets for the show
    The stage is set, the band starts playing
    Suddenly your heart is pounding
    Wishing secretly you were a star
    But dont be fooled by the radio
    The TV or the magazines
    They show you photographs of how your life should be
    But they’re just someone else’s fantasy
    So if you think your life is complete confusion
    ‘Cause you never win the game
    Just remember that its a Grand Illusion
    And deep inside we’re all the same
    We’re all the same…
    So if you think your life is complete confusion
    ‘Cause your neighbors got it made
    Just remember that it’s a Grand Illusion
    And deep inside we’re all the same
    We’re all the same…
    America spells competion
    Join us in our blind ambition
    Hitch yourself a brand new motor
    Come on
    And someday soon we’ll start to ponder
    What on Earth’s this spell we’re under
    We make the grade and still we wonder
    Who the hell we are…

    Nice, thanks for sharing your thoughts. The ChipMonks metaphor(i think) was hilarious tho, you got me there hahah. Reminded me of a Rick n Morty Episode:
    Morty Convinces Rick to build him a helmet to enable him to communicate with animals(hear their thoughts). He does this, all is well, until he ventures outside and eaves drops on a conversation between a few squirrels….who happen to be members of the CFR or some agency planning a coupe in a distant government. hahaha basically they figure out Morty knows and all “Masonic” Munks and “Illuminated” Squirrels come from every direction to gang up on him and chase him back to Rick where he says “ahh the squirrels Morty, you fool! DONT F WITH THE SQUIRRELS MORTY!!” implying that they rule the world hahah i got a kick out of it, remains to be one of my all time fav scenes of theirs.

    anyhow, lets continue to spread truth in common sense to others under what little sun light “they” let shine down upon us, in this man-manipulated atmosphere we now find ourselves.
    God Bless!

    Excellent post full of truth. Your Monks made me smile, they are wise indeed.

    It made me contemplate many of the reflexes and innate knowledge that we “lose” as we get older.

    Babies have the fundamental knowledge straight out of the womb of how to walk, swim, grasp, and even hold their breath before immersion (I would go so far as to suggest abilities far beyond those listed). Yet, when you toss an older child in a pool who has never swam he will struggle and possibly drown.

    Conversely, in the animal kingdom – you can hold a dog of many years, who has never swam, over water and they will begin to paddle.

    Makes you wonder what damage Is being done to us to unlearn this basic primal programming and connection to our natural world. .

  5. ByteEnable says:

    The monks are relying on the weather not on the cyclic sun/moon. We know they are playing with the weather. Are they playing with the sun and moon as well?

  6. Ruth Joyce says:

    It is frightening to realize we live in an illusionary realm with dark wizards in control. But comforting to know our creator has giving us natural signs in nature to help us through our way home. Thanks for sharing your insights Crrow.

  7. Crow says:

    There is no lie in what we call nature – at least for now.

  8. Ryan Tosatto says:

    Well said. Here in SE NM I learned my first winter to spring in the area that the way to tell for sure was to watch the mesquites. When the mesquite start greening then you can count on no more freeze, unlike most of the fruit trees which flower and start fruiting first sign of warmth only to lose it all in a random late freeze. Nature is always communicating to those with ears to hear and those without alike.

    Beautiful! This is indeed truth!
    I’ve been gardening now for about a decade and it took me many years before I stopped following the “average frost dates” and the advice of so many books and classes and started just observing nature for my cues on planting dates. While far more rewarding, it’s not easy, b/c my programming makes it so that I constantly have to remind myself, even still, who my real teacher is here and to stop looking to other outside ‘expertise’.
    One thing that naturally happens as I practice this is a feeling of ‘gardening by aesthetics”. I know that sounds obvious at face value, b/c of course gardens are meant to be lovely places, but this is not the way we’ve come to think about vegetable gardens in this country. But it has made a big difference and improvement, not only in my own mind in how I’m more drawn to the garden now, but also what we harvest as food, both weeds and crops alike!
    Unfortunately, with the crazy ‘climate change’ (aka weather modification/geoengineering) I do fear, gravely, b/c it’s clear how affected the plants and animals are as they force these ‘weather whiplash’ and disaster capitalism scenarios–the natural world is suffering at our hands and it’s hard not to respond to that by mirroring its distress. I find it’s very difficult to be co-creative when I’m forced into a mode of protection against the powers that seem to have zero respect for life.

    Off topic but You may appreciate his crow-When I opened the Amazon page today there is a silhouette of a little girl speaking to one of the little Echo spy devices amazon is pushing so hard and She is asking it “How far is the moon” ?……

    Thanks Crrow, you are one of the very few who speak of the LIE that is our everyday life.

    In Lies We Trust
    When truth becomes conspiracy, reality becomes an illusion.
    The world as we know it, is an illusion based on lies and deceit.
    If the world seems insane, it’s because it is run by insane people.
    Good guys finish last, so where do you think all the bad guys are.
    Money makes the world go round, so money talks and people can be bought.
    Jobs at all cost, cost us all.
    So stop going along to get along, because it is wrong and it does cost us all.
    They say (the psychopaths) there is a sucker born everyday.
    Blind trust will be humanities undoing, so stop be-LIE-ving blindly and question everything.
    They lie and we be-LIE-ve, because we trust.
    Stop trusting and be-LIE-ving anything that is mainstream. It’s all being manipulated.
    To be-LIE-ve is to not know. So start knowing and stop be-LIE-ving. Do your own research.
    You may think you are free, but really you are only free to conform.
    We were all born into slavery. Freedom is nothing more than an illusion.
    Truth is knowledge. Knowledge is power. Knowing the truth will set you free.
    Ignorance is not bliss, it is how we are all being used and abused.
    People say they love their (grand)children.
    Talk is cheap. Actions speak louder than words.
    This world is in a sad state of affairs and needs fixing.
    We all have free will and you are not powerless.
    We can choose to sit idly by, while the world crumbles around us
    or we can all grab a cause and get involved.
    If we all joined in one cause, we could change the world overnight.
    Be the change you want to see.
    “It does not take an army to fight evil.
    All it takes is for individuals to do one good deed at the time.”
    “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good people do nothing”
    So if you do nothing, nothing will happen.
    Alone we have the power of none, but together we have the power of “ONE”
    You can make a difference now by sharing this message.
    Deal with reality, before it deals with you.

    PSYCHOPATHS – ALMOST HUMAN –
    The Hidden Evil is a psychopathic program which exists in a society controlled by psychopaths. The World Is Run By Real Psychopaths
    “The eyes of a psychopath will deceive you, they will destroy you. They will take from you, your innocence, your pride and eventually your soul. These eyes do not see what you and I can see. Behind these eyes, one finds only blackness, the absence of light. These are of a psychopath.” ― Dr. Samuel Loomis

    Twenty years ago, a newspaper headline asked the question: “What’s the difference between a politician and a psychopath?” The answer, then and now, remains the same: None. There is no difference between psychopaths and politicians.
    Nor is there much of a difference between the havoc wreaked on innocent lives by uncaring, unfeeling, selfish, irresponsible, parasitic criminals and elected officials who lie to their constituents,

    I’ve noticed in BabyLondon that squirrels do not seem to hibernate and I’m certain they used to. Watching the squirrels ingenious tactics of overcoming every single deterrent placed to protect ‘squirrel-proof’ feeders leaves me in full admiration for these fearless, tenacious and playful beings. Humanity could learn a lot from such spirits.

    This Spring sprung late; Daffodils lasted much longer than usual and trees didn’t sprout until heavily chemtrailed weather took a break over the past week then whoom, everything’s in bloom. I’ve been feeding the birds since October and they usually back off the feeders around this time, yet are still requiring top-ups. Aside from all the military tactics used to coerce human minds into accepting a synthetic reality, one of the biggest threats is bio-mimicry. People assume chem-trails are clouds. Bees and other flying insects now have drone replicants and are no doubt being tested on unsuspecting environments. Sophia is now a Citizen with equal human rights. It is quite shocking to see some people are actually replacing lawns with astro-turf. One of the most disturbing aspects viewed was a robotic baby gorilla, very lifelike, placed among a community with one of the females (perhaps they’d removed her real offspring for the experiment) attempting to nurture it. Once she realised it was a fake, she threw it from a tree, much to the shocked distress of the others. In the clip shown, (from the lying BBC) they did not explain this to the viewers who’d get the impression that nature is savage. It horrifies me that the types of set up ‘nature’ programmes shown on TV and films involve a great deal of distress for the animals. Bio-mimicry will see bio-synthetic robots in our midst and seen as natural to a surviving generation of children.

    We blame the psychopathic technocrats controlling every aspect of our world yet people choose to zone out in front of the TV; people choose to eat crap without question and people choose to do as they’re told without question, and not to question anything.

    Can a self-selected aware number of us really change the collective consciousness? I doubt it but we can do our best to connect and visualise on whatever level, for the greatest assistance and good to prevail in creating a natural world.

    Yes in fact we can. Even a small amount of water has a direct effect on fire – as does light in a massive cave – we are that light and more will see if we do what we can to step back to common sense and lead the way. Good post – cheers

  17. Brian Broome says:

    In my opinion ..The greatest threat to those who seek to control our world, the PTBs ,is the awakening of the people. But what exactly does this mean.? Crow is correct when he points to the ‘mind’. It starts and ends there. To perceive reality as it really is unclouded with preconceived distorted notions To see the oneness and how we are a part of it I know, these are platitudes.
    Common terms often expressed with little or no real explanation. Still.
    It occurred to me last night, thinking of the state of our world, the endless conflict, the manufactured divisions, the false narratives, the fake reality put forth to keep us divided, confused, and unbalanced, is that this is not by accident, I am sure many would agree.
    One of the main objectives of the controllers is to misdirect. As Crow put it, create a artificial reality to supplant a natural one.
    To look outside instead of inside To externalize instead of internalized. To divide instead of bringing together.
    I have come to the understanding that it is mans’ nature to grow, to wonder, to question, to become more in all ways. It is what gives meaning to mans life. And to the PTBs, this must be avoided at all costs by any and all means.
    It is said, that a truly actualized, complete man has realized his true potential by having brought his mind and body into harmony. He has travel within, fought the demons, (division) and emerged whole with clear vision / perception.
    All that we see around us today, is the externalization of this, An example; The desire to bring into harmony the male/ female aspects of our consciousness and the LBGT agenda The desire for belonging, and the Neo Marxist ideology so prevalent today.
    The desire to feel complete and the rampant materialism. All of these basic desires have been corrupted, misdirected and distorted to keep us all under control/ enslaved. And the effort, the expense and expanse of the controlling powers is so pervasive, so all encompassing of every aspect of our lives, it is truly inconceivable to hold in ones mind.

    But know this; The main goal of the PTBs is to keep you from looking inward and so that is what you should do. It is the only way forward.

      Last line – spot on –

    Know thyself, heal thyself. Inner knowing and innerstanding is critical and indeed all that truly matters.

    Very well put Crow – and as far as the collective consciousness Serena Martin, we are, you are, it is. The wave is irrepressible, undeniable 🙂
    It’s amazing to me just how true and all encompassing the term grand illusion is in reference to this world we’re living in. Fitting in so many varied and complex ways it’s impossible to not exist perpetually bemused in a sense of wonder and disbelief. That seems to be the rhythm of this steep learning curve of recent times. Refreshingly it’s fair to say, with something seeming amiss for some time – learning I know nothing about the world has in fact been the most valuable lesson to date. The work you and Jason do is invaluable and appreciated more than you’ll fathom – the provision of sanity for many of us not finding it amongst the increasingly superficial, banal backdrop of modern society can not be quantified nor expressed.. So I’ll stop, beyond thank you.

    A while back I recall you mentioning a scenario in which the moon is seen to occult a star (for example) yet people have reported seeing the star through the ‘dark side’ of the moon, as if it’s transparent or a new moon is indeed completely new. I’ve seen this a number of times and have a number of images which appear to show stars through what we’re taught is the ‘solid’ dark side section (that not being the illuminated crescent).

    The more I observe the sky’s the more I know the illusory nature of everything we see up there, as you’ve touched on a number of times. This footage is probably not of a style to warrant me any notary or claims of groundbreaking scientific discovery, but worthy of sharing in any case. I assure you it’s genuine, a product of my own two hands in my own back yard. It’s extremely obvious what the camera is seeing / presenting here with regard to the translucent / clear moon – having said that – the illusory nature of all in the sky has me more focused on the why rather that the what, at this point.
    Anyhow, I thought you may appreciate a look https://youtu.be/ZFEpK1f8N34 these are stills turned into video, happy to share the images with you if you’d like a closer look.
    Cheers, thanks for your time

      Nice clip I hope you keep at it. We stopped looking up and an illusion was created.

    1. Crow says:

      The issue here is time and man power. This has been a one man show until Jason joins me full time. I have thought about something like this but the shear amount of work on top of what we already do makes it tough. We do try to give information that allows folks to go out and research or vet on their own.
