Waking Times

Today’s world is a strange place. We are inundated with signals from early on in life, encouraging each of us to walk a particular path, establishing blinders on us along the way to discourage us from looking for alternatives to what the herd is doing or thinking. Life is so complex that overtime, if we are paying attention, we realize that there are an infinite number of possibilities to what the human experience could be, and we come see that the world is on fire because individuals all too infrequently question why things are the way they are, failing to notice that their mindset or behavior needs adjustment in favor of more intelligent, common sensical, or sustainable patterns of existence.

Not meant to be overtly critical of anyone’s lifestyle choices or personal situation, the following 16 signs that you’re a slave to the matrix are meant purely as an observational approach to helping you identify the areas of your life where you may be missing an opportunity to liberate yourself from someone else’s self-destructive design for your life.

Read on, and please take a moment to comment below with anything you’d like to add to the list or object to.

  1. You pay taxes to people you’d like to see locked up in jail. This is perhaps the biggest indicator that we are slaves to the matrix. The traditional notion of slavery conjures up images of people in shackles forced to work on plantations to support rich plantation owners. The modern day version of this is forced taxation, where our incomes are automatically docked before we ever see the money, regardless of whether or not we approve of how the money is spent.
  2. You go to the doctor, but you’re still sick. Modern medical care, for all of it’s scientific progress, has sadly become sick care, where we are rarely advised to eat well and tend to our mental and physical health, but instead are routinely advised to consume expensive medications and procedures that are pushed by the for-profit healthcare matrix
  3. You’ve picked Team Democrat or Team Republican and argue with your friends, family and co-workers about politics. This is what the control strategy of divide and conquer looks like in our society. Both of the major parties are corrupt through and through, and independent candidates are not even allowed to participate in public debates. By believing in one of these parties and burning your personal energy on arguing with other ordinary people you are turning over your soul the matrix, and doing your share in making sure that ‘we the people’ will never be united against corruption.
  4. You work hard doing something you hate to earn fiat dollars. Work is important and money does pay the bills, however, so many people lose the best years of their lives doing things they hate, just for money. The truth about money today is that we do not have money, but instead, inflationary fiat currency that is privately owned and manipulated. Since it is still necessary to get by in this world, it is best that you get more value for your time by doing something you enjoy or by working with people you do not despise. It is easier than you may think to live on less money than we believe we need, we just have to be willing to go against the grain realize this.
  5. You’re willing to accrue personal debt to fund the acquisition of a consumer oriented lifestyle. Each time a credit card is swiped it creates digits on the balance sheets of the banks that are most involved with the financial looting of the world today. These digits are then multiplied electronically by the fractional reserve system, which exponentially increases the power of these institutions. To participate in this, and by agreeing to pay this fake money back with interest, in order to maintain a certain lifestyle, is a strong indication that you are bound by one of the main tenets of the matrix – consumerism.
  6. You converse with real people about the ongoing happenings of TV shows. TV is the most potent tool used for mind control, and the ‘programming’ that is available, while certainly cool, fun, or entertaining is geared to reinforce certain behaviors amongst the masses. Dramatizing the ego’s importance, over sexualizing everything, glorifying violence, and teaching submissiveness to phony authority are the main features of modern TV. By taking what is happening onscreen and making it a part of your real life, you are doing your job of supporting the matrix’s desire to confuse us about the nature of reality, proving that something doesn’t have to actually happen in order for it to feel real to people.
  7. You don’t have anything to hide from total surveillance. If it does not bother you that someone, somewhere, working for somebody is watching you, listening to your conversations, and monitoring your movements, then, you are a good slave to the matrix. Invisible surveillance is an insidious form of thought control, and by using the logic of, ‘I have nothing to hide, therefore, it will do me no harm to be surveilled,’ then you are mindlessly admitting that you have an earthly master and are not of sovereign mind and body.
  8. You think the world would be safer if only governments had guns. This is a violent world, and criminals engage in criminality against honest people at every level of society, including from within the government. Sure, in a perfect world, weapons wouldn’t be necessary for anyone but, sadly, our world is anything but perfect, and firearms are indeed a very effective form of protection against common criminals and abusive governments alike. The willingness to forego your right to self-defenseis a sign that you’ve relegated personal responsibility to someone else. Having the masses abdicate personal responsibility is one of the most important aspects of controlling them. Welcome to thematrix.
  9. You knowingly drink fluoridated water. Of all the health debates taking place today, the topic of fluoridated water is the easiest to understand, for it is a toxic by-product of an industrial process… poison. Water is supposedly fluoridated to aid in dental health, which is debatable in itself, but if this were so, then the involuntary fluoridation of public water is a medication without your consent… a form of slavery. Knowing this and continuing to drink fluoridated water is a sign that you’re content with your slavery to the matrix. Here are 18 scientifically validated reasons to end public water fluoridation.
  10. You knowingly consume toxic poisons like MSG and Aspartame. These two chemicals are widely known to be toxic to the human body. Knowing this and continuing to poison yourself with tasty, but chemical-laden processed foods is a sign that the matrix has programmed you to place less value on your health and future than on your immediate gratification.
  11. You depend on the pharmaceutical industrial complex for the management of your own mental health. The use of psychotropic medicines is rising rapidly in our society because people have been convinced that mental and emotional states can be classified as diseases, while the truth about natural mental health has been obfuscated by corporate media and a for-profit medical establishment. If you’re taking psychotropic medications, then you are under one of the most potent forms of mind control available. Part of this control is to convince you that you have no authority over your own mind. This is perhaps the matrix’s most terrible lie, and by willingly taking thesepsychotropic medications you are conforming to the worst kind of slavery, and inhibiting your natural mental and emotional responses to the life stressors that are signaling to you that you need to change your behavior and habits.
  12. You haven’t yet stopped watching your local and national news programming. The mainstream news media is a tool of control and manipulation, and by continuing to support their ideas and world views by giving them your attention you are volunteering to be a slave to this not-so-subtle form of mental programming. Even the local news is scripted at the national level by agents of the handful of corporations tasked with shaping our opinions of events.
  13. You’re more concerned with televised sports or other mindless distractions than you are with the quality of your natural environment. The Deepwater HorizonAlberta Tar Sands, the rise of Fracking, the sacrifice of the Amazon, and Fukushima are all life-changing events that will severely impact our future on planet earth. To be unconcerned with all of this while tuning into a never-ending stream of sports trivia and distraction-based living is a sign that your sense of self-preservation has been stolen and replaced with an impulsive tendency for triviality and escapism.
  14. You’re skeptical of any area of life that hasn’t been ‘proven’ or validated by modern science.The very essence of science is the inquiry into the unknown, implying that until science can grasp something, it is unexplainable. By discrediting or ridiculing experiences that other people have, which yet evade scientific understanding, like near-death experiences, acupuncture, or the life changing effects of Ayahuasca, then you are slavishly reducing your understanding of the world to a narrow range of possibilities. The matrix is made possible by the efforts of volunteer gatekeepers who are unwilling to think outside of the box.
  15. You’ve never questioned the popularized version of ancient history and the origins of our civilization. There are many unanswered questions about the origins of the human race that point to a different version of human history than what is taught in school. Read 2o history questions they refuse to answer in school to discover some of the many ways in which our history has been hijacked. By never questioning what we’ve been told about our origin we are acquiescing to many of the imposed belief systems and narrow-banded views of human potential that the matrix promotes.
  16. You haven’t yet realized that you are a spiritual being living a human experience. 

If you can relate to any of the items on this list, then the matrix has you, and it is now your duty to engage more deeply in your liberation.

If you’d like to add to or object to anything on this list, then please do so in the comments section below, and be sure to share this with your friends.

NOT BAD AT ALL BEN-ARION.  You get a thumbs up from me.  I'm a U.S. registered nurse who votes Libertarian and has no prescribed medicine needed for me, even with my anxiety over the situation here in the United States.  I prefer my astrology, my Chihuahuas, and my guitars (with loud amplifiers) over antidepressants, benzodiazepines, and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI's) for the type of stress I have to deal with here in Texas.  Great read!

When mum asked me what I wanted to be when I finished school I said I wasn't sure, because I knew she was asking what career I wanted to take. I know what I want to do when I am done and can do as I wish, I just can't explain it to her. She told me that I should do something with my life like becoming a lawyer or a scientist and I said that to me, becoming something like that is not doing something with my life and it is the exact opposite! I said I wasn't comfortable doing that, because to me, settling for that kind of stuff is a waste of my life. Doing the same job, in the same town, every day, is a waste of my life and that is not what I wanted to do at all!

Then she told me I needed to get a job in order to get money to do the things that I wanted to do. I almost believed her until I snapped myself out of it and realized that just by willing it, I have become popular on the internet doing what I love to the point that companies send me free s*** in order to advertise for them. So I am getting free stuff just by doing what I want. I don't work for anyone but myself and any effort I put in is effort well spent. 

That is how everyone should view their life. 

Don't settle for the same thing, in the same town. 

That is not what will truly make you happy.

I looked through the links you provided and they all follow a pattern I've seen many times before in both the language-form, presentation-form and yes, how the eyes of the people involved were looking. You can see into a mans (or womans) soul through their eyes.

Now, if these pages you linked are actually helping you get measurably well, it could "wreck your placebo" if I tell you what I found on those links, so I'll just suffice by saing this:

DO NOT have unprotected s** with a non-HIV person before you have had at least 2 independent and REAL doctors confirm that you are free of the virus.

(and yes, there is MUCH information between the lines in the two messages I've posted here)

I did''nt get exactly what you meant by this. Besides, if I would trust people with my wallet, I wouldn't trust antbody, as my wallet is often empty (KKK). But I am recieving lots of help for free to handle my health problems and tons of syncrhonicities (and detachemt) since I did my Ego dissolving therapy with a wonderfull american woman, whose work is based on James Redfield book. As the last Lunar Eclipse happened within a close distance from my Chiron, is in Aries at the 4th house. It also affected my natal Saturn (retrograde at Taurus at the 5th house).... Thinks are really changing! Carla is a great Dr and offers hers (effective, but expensive products for me for free; the only issue I have is to find bearers to bring them to me from the U.S., as they wouldn't go trough Customs. I had 10 sessions of Quantum Biofeedback (for free and remotely from NYC) and I was AMAZED by the results, not only for me but for my godfather, who was dying from cancer (whose treatment was impossible, as it was at a very advanced stage, but QB eliminated all side-effects of chimio and radioteraphy were completely eliminated; he was also healed from a mild form of Autism and began to cry at the age of 80 for the first time in his life, so he died in peace...). I would very much apprecciate to be your friend so we can share more and now each other better...

Their eyes... Their eyes.. Look at their eyes... ;)

Do you really trust those people with your wallet, to make you better?

Comment by Joao Paulo Andrade Pereira on October 13, 2014 at 8:14pm

I am an awakened slave to the Matrix... Can such thing happen? I am aware of everything that's going on, but I have a hard time eaning money without raping my soul... And as I am HIV positive, but nearly died in 2003 when using homeopathy to deal with it, and I work for my mother, who is completely skeptical about any alternative therapy, I am taking more medications than my body can handle... But I did a lot of research about super advanced healing techniques and now I am looking for partners, people with "license do diagnose" and sponsorship to get rid of all this bonds and live the life I know I was meant to live. Lots of detachemnt and inner work.... I would like to share here some of the very best healing techniques and professionals I know:

Blessings and love,

Yes Ben, These control system really exist, Do you have any idea on how to eliminate the MATRIX without violence? The Demons are very powerful, they even controlled the religions in this planet.

Comment by goldenweaver on May 2, 2014 at 8:04am

Thanks Ben,
Lovely post and gives me confidence that I have been on the right track for many years...I have not given myself over to any of these controls for more than 10 years...It is hard though to interact 'normal' people and my interest in Interlife communication has taken me so far away from the belief systems of others that I feel like I am another there is a nice thought...genetic variation via SELF selection! I just wish that people were interested in interacting and talking to the one living force that imbues all life...Sometimes quiet lonely when the beautiful friendships I have built with other beings can not be understood or integrated by other humans...I am often questioned as to why I can 'talk'/ 'listen' to the natural world and others can not...I often am ashamed by the actions of fellow humans who do not resonate with the Life around them in a responsible or compassionate way...It is hard to be awake/ aware...It definitely does not make life easier...but nothing worthwhile ever comes easily (unless you want it to of course! HAHAHA)...
