As one takes stock of what is happening to our nation and our planet, using simple common sense it becomes evident that things are not working. It does not take an “expert” with a PhD to figure out that things have gone horribly wrong on many fronts: economic, social, justice, community, environment, and governance, to name just a few.
It has become apparent to an ever growing number of people, that “our” governments are no longer serving the needs of the people, that the people are being divided into increasingly antagonistic blocs, that the corporate owned media is censoring information that does not conform to “official” narratives as well as sowing the divisions, that many people are losing themselves into a matrix-like digital world, that the wealth gap between the haves and the have nots is not only widening but is growing exponentially, all while the wars without any end just keep rearing their heads in different locations with new “enemies” that the corporate owned media cheer leads the people into fearing and hating.
Much as the mythical Ulysses, the legendary Greek king of Ithaca and the hero of Homer’s epic poem the Odyssey, we listen to the song of the sirens on the news. These sirens were creatures who lured sailors to their destruction with their beguiling voices. Ulysses resisted the bewitching songs of the sirens, by having his ship’s crew tie him up, while having them block their own ears to prevent themselves from hearing the song. Something similar is happening to humanity in the present, where many listen to the corporate owned media and its siren’s song without realizing that how it leads to our own destruction. The goal is to keep people living in fear. We need to block our own ears to the corporate media siren songs.
We are here to offer a different voice, an alternative song if you will. We can choose to live in fear, or we can choose to live in peace and joy. Our hope is that people will enjoy the content of this site, while opening their eyes to the possibility that fear can be overcome and that we are the architects of our own reality.
Webster’s Dictionary defines Illusion as: “a misleading image presented to the vision (2): something that deceives or misleads intellectually b (1): perception of something objectively existing in such a way as to cause misinterpretation of its actual nature”
Once a critical mass of people awaken to who they really are and their own inner strength, these illusions will fall. It is the hope of this website to play a role in making these illusions fall.
