It happens so often and so subtly. Anytime we bend to the will of a lesser consciousness and address something on a wrong premise, we’ve agreed to a contract. We’ve officially agreed to engage at a lower level of understanding and awareness and will now have to operate within that severely limited and crippled framework.
Is it that serious?
Yes it is. How do you think this flimsy, lying matrix gets away with keeping so many handcuffed, bewildered, stupefied and incapable of waking up people in submission? There’s a methodology. And a big part of it is the lure into lower, self reinforcing levels of communication and understanding. And there’s no intention of getting anyone up and out of there, but instead to reinforce its grip on whomever ventures there.
It’s like the sayings about fools. Get down to their level of arguing and they’ll pound you into submission. Why? They believe that crappy lying system of thought, they’ve bought into its manipulative highly self-serving power. And by its very dumb downed lying nature they will deny the existence of anything else and try to beat into submission anything that challenges it.
Claiming vociferously that higher levels of understanding and Truth don’t exist. And you have no leg in that world to stand on.
Sorry, but you went there willingly. Don’t do it again.
The Presumptive Premise
Look at that word “premise”. “Based on a false premise.” “According to your premise…” yada yada. Then there’s “get off of my premises!” Hmm.
Important idea. Has to do with where you claim to maintain yourself. Or where you stand on something perhaps.
Here’s an interesting and somewhat funny example of how a false premise can be easily carried forward:
“An old cowboy goes into a bar and orders a drink. As he sits there sipping his whiskey, a young lady sits down next to him. … She says, ‘I’m a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about women. …’ A little while later, a couple sits down next to the old cowboy and asks him, ‘Are you a real cowboy?’ He replies, ‘I always thought I was, but I just found out I’m a lesbian.'”
Look how easy that was to slip by. We think funny only because it’s obviously a male cowboy and a jarring juxtaposition. But the suppositional power of a false premise is much more clever and dastardly than that. Just listen to lawyers and politicians and all the assumptive, contractual phrases they sneak into their language. It’s overwhelmingly fraudulent and extremely intrusive and aggressive.
And each time people believe it, take it in and don’t identify and deny and resist it, it becomes another contract.
A voluntary agreeance to enter and participate within a trapped environment.
Don’t say Hi, like a spider to a fly
Jump right ahead and you’re dead”

Same with people. You agree to be a certain person with this person, and they with you. Same with another. The conflict arises when you’re with a group of people and you have several different contracts out. Ooops. Finding your footing can be tough if you’ve been living at that shallow, deceitful level. But it’s a question of survival so people make it work.
And work it is keeping so many contracted stories going. Such is life for so many entrapped in the system.
Being real and honest, as unhip as it is in this artificially contaminated world, is so simple. It was actually a big revelation “back in the day” (another give-away expression) to “be real” only 50 years ago. “Do your own thing”. Wow, how revelatory! “Do what I’m innately called to do and not what the system is telling me? Shit, that’s cool!”
Hippies. Misfits. Druggies. Outcasts.
It all took some time to wear off but wear off it did, after the spiders popularized the psychedelic and sexual features of the movement and slowly beat it into accepted submission. They’ve got time, and that’s the kind of thing they do. We just ride along and comment on the countryside.
Beliefs Are More Bullshit Contracts
I don’t use the word believe except to challenge and belittle it. It has nothing to do with Truth, consciousness or experience. It is hope made into rigamarole. It is ethereal cereal in a world that needs real experiential food. It is more often than not dreamy feel good nonsense in a massive garbage dump that needs recycling.
And they’re contracts. People agree to what they want to project or wish for. It’s fantasy. It’s not all bad as there are positive affirmations than can help alter immediate situations, but they’re still bullshit on a stick.
They’re not experiential. They’re attached to outcome, phony baloney wishes and desires that have nowhere to go. So WE harbor them as a last resort in our fantasy football world of desired outcomes. Play the game of belief if you want, but your idea of spirituality is sitting in the lotus position while a boulder is rolling down the mountain on top of you.
It’s bullshit. And bullshit to new age wannasee and wannabeeism. Get real. Consciousness is knowing. Faith is knowing.
Belief is hope and has no foundation in anything. Get off the drug. You’ll see SOOO much more clearly.
Conclusion – Making A Path
This subject of contracts is quite profound. When you grow in consciousness you’ll recognize these issues quickly and easily. When you’re enmeshed in the morass of intentional confusion and control you’ll think “conspiracy freak” or something to explain away these pin pricks on your consciousness.
No biggee. You’ll get it eventually.
That’s why we need to wake people up. Any way we can! We each only have our personal realms of influence, but more importantly we each have our ability to align with consciousness and automatically each other. Therein lies the key, our unity. I don’t know how it works but I know that’s a massive factor in our effectiveness.
When you or I activate, others activate. If we don’t, the ones we touch probably won’t. That’s how it works.
As the gorgeous picture just above illustrates, we each are part of the path to the safe haven of Truth. We are lining up even if we don’t think we are or can’t feel or see it. Trust your heart and do what’s right.
The light will and does show the way…and sometimes the darker outside the clearer!
Love and affection always, Zen
“Whatever it is, stop trying to figure it out now. Let it remain unresolved a little while. Stop trying to fast-forward to the ‘answer’ scene in the movie of your life; trust the present scene of ‘no answer yet’. Allow the question itself space to breathe and be fertilized. Relax into the mysterious ground of Now.” – Jeff Foster
Zen Gardner’s book, ‘You Are the Awakening’, examines the dynamics of the awakening to a more conscious awareness of who we are and why we are here — dynamics which are much different from the programmed approach of this world we were born into.
In order to tap into the limitless source of our full potential, any change we seek in the world begins with eash of us individually. Grounded in this understanding, ‘You Are the Awakening’ will help to inform, empower and encourage anyone who is on this wonderful path of realizing our infinite potential.
