“Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind …”

~ Morpheus, in ‘The Matrix’

This web log is for people with the splinter. It’s is a place to examine “what we know that we can’t explain” and start to make it explainable. Everything that promotes understanding what’s wrong and repairing it is fair topic for this blog. That includes examining what’s wrong and right with ourselves.

In the six months this blog has been in existence, its focus has tended to center around two things: phony spirituality and the New World Order agenda. There are lots of cult-awareness websites that deal with deceiving spiritual teachers, and lots of conspiracy websites that talk about the global fascist state our leaders are marching us toward, but there aren’t many websites that talk about how these two phenomena relate to each other.

This is one such website. Please feel free to join in with your comments, ideas and any related information.

    religions are just a con for us to willingly relinquish freedom of thought & become spiritually enslaved. I really believe religions are the main tool for the demonic (unseen by most of us) to control us and feed off of our (psychic & emotional) energies. Beware of the New Age Religion too-I am suspicious towards the Great White Brotherhood-sounds like another trap. I’m really with David Icke’s belief about religions-none hold up under unbiased scrutiny-they promote wars & hatred. How can this be of God when God is love? In my dream I heard the words: Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide as spirit left my body. I believe this is the way to become close to God by always letting right action no matter what the cost to guide you on the principle of Justice impartially for all. It is just that simple . Religions separate people from God I think & letting your conscience be your guide brings one closer to God. Sorry Bronte you wasted so much time before you realized Religion is a con job/ruse but your insights are very needed for the blind, deaf & confused among us. For me God is real & I don;t buy into a go between or middle man. I feel every person should have a 1:1 relationship with God…listen to your intuition & Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide. Hope this helps……..patty

    Your essays are brilliant and i am grateful that you are putting these thoughts to paper.

    There is a huge agenda being pushed with meditation and “ego-death”, and more of us are seeing it.

    Thank you for writing this…brilliant stuff.

      (There is a huge agenda being pushed with meditation and “ego-death”, and more of us are seeing it)

      It seems to me to be a win win situation for the ones pushing the ego death scheme.
      you either Bow and bow and bow…they win.
      or turn your back, you walk away form them and they hope you feel stupid for being duped, lost and hopeless forever.

      but when you are able to see the monster behind their mask, walking away is not hard.

    dear bronte,

    thank you for your thoughts on these subjects. you write with such clarity and such ability to “wake people up.” i’m glad i stumbled across your blog site. ha!

    i tend to immerse myself in something and then — all of a sudden — i can’t stomach it any more and wonder why. Reading one of your essays, I realized it was because I — once again — have swallowed the poison with the good-tasting wine. So subtle.

    going deeper, i ask myself, is it because i don’t want to completely accept responsibility for myself — and the answer is No. I do. It’s always because a poison is wrapped inside of a seemingly innocuous, even lovely concept, and the poison is swallowed before you even realize it. Then a couple of days, or weeks, as the case may be, later, the body reacts to the WHOLE that you have swallowed. Then I have to go back and separate the wheat from the chaff.

    This is hard on the body, but it doesn’t fail me.

    Thanks again for your encapsulizing insights,

    Take back your mind and ditch the crooked, mind-controlling Gregorian calendar and use a harmonic Dreamspell; that is until the mass of us get our telepathy up and running! In lakech – “I am another you”

    Hi Bronte

    If I read correctly above it appears that you support the theory of the Law of Attraction. I am a bit worried about this latest craze and feel it just may be another way of manipulating us. I have no set views on this but would like to hear other’s opinions. What are your thoughts on this please? I find the whole idea very attractive but do not want to fall into yet another new age trap. (I have fallen in and out of a few)!!!

    we must begin to take back what has been taken from us thus far,we need to dispell the illusions and reveal the secrects,we must begin together.
    where do we begin and how,our minds are like parachutes they dont work unless they are open.

    While the “Matrix” was just a movie, that line was incredibly profound, it’s amazing where these nuggets show up. Anyone who is honestly on the path should be able to stop and dust off some of the confusing debris they’ve picked up along the way and reconnect with what set them on the path in the first place.

    I became aware of the splinter during the early seventies in my late teens but felt the irritation well before that. Of the few childhood memories I’ve managed to keep, this is the most vivid. I was only six, we were walking to church one day (back when people still walked) and we meet a couple of ladies who after talking to my mother turn to me and asked “what religion are you”. I said “christian”, well they had a good laugh and said “no,no we mean, are you” and proceeded rattle off a few denominations. I remember my annoyance for being laughed at but also at their ignorance in trying to subdivide a basic spiritual belief. I also remember being creeped out by the pledge of allegiance (don’t get me wrong I love my country)

    I believe all religions are false as they hijack the words of the enlightened and claim exclusive rights to interpretation so they can practice politics of the soul. I believe in a creator. I believe we are all children of the creator no matter what planet, solar system or galaxy we’re from. Whatever negative plans our siblings have will ultimately fail, but how far they get is, can and will be affected by us.

    Now relax and don’t forget to laugh

    P.S. Deep Thanks Bronte

    The idea of love tends to get a bit cloudy and can be used to fuel spiritual agendas. If we can separate out the romantic sensibility about love then we may get to a truer picture of what it actually is in the context of “God” I believe that love in a spiritual sense is just connectivity in a literal sense. To love something is to give it its space in the connected expression.

    Separation takes on many forms and as soon as we fall for any hierarchy, we deny our power.

    As far as the comment on Law of Attraction, it is what it is and can be used to harmonize or fracture. I believe the mainstream psyop underway uses it(getting its due on mainstream tv is always a sign) in a way to create separation through notions of greed and to heighten loosh flavours. “Get that new shiny car” etc, and “don’t worry about the environment because it will fix itself” etc are signs of a use that drives entropy.

    Good stuff no doubt-glad I found your site. Clarity on several issues; loosh, law of attraction, the karma fraud. I’m just starting to get very angry (in the best sense of the word) again after feeling very “painted over”.

    Your ability to pull the truth out of the matrix BS, dust it off, shine it up and set it out for all to see is admirable and motivating.

    thanks Bronte!

    I paid for myself, my son and daughter in law to be initiated into TM last March 2012 and took advantage of the Oprah Winfrey grant to the TM organization. The more I meditated regularly I became more physically and emotionaly numb and with headaches when I tried to meditate. when I questioned this at “check ins” by several different TM teachers I was told, “your just destressing” or “change is good”. I started doing my own internet research and found MANY sites including yours which I believe one of the most articulate and powerful. Thank you SO VERY MUCH for starting this site to get the truth out. I no longer meditate and am sharing the URL of your website to others with questions about TM.

      Hi Diane

      Glad you wised up so much sooner than I did. It’s so unfortunate that Oprah fell for the TM ruse. How many thousands of unsuspecting souls will now get caught in the net on account of her endorsement?

    This is the first site I cross where I find people that understand the deception of meditation and personal enlightenment. I have called on people to stop this ego enlightning and come join a collective consciousness for positive change. As long as people are happy as individuals, or believe they are, they will not connect to others. And connection is what we need, a critical mass for change in the world, not happy people at home or alone in the desert with water and bread and a smile on their face, being meaningless. Personal enlightment may be the beginning, but then you will have to step in the society again and pull others with you and combine knowledged, deeds, action for a change in society that has been ruled by a small power elite group. This group loves it that everybody is sitting at their homes with books and feel enlightend regardless of the shit they have been taking through media and politics, being slaves of wages. Selfhelpbooks are the ideal tools for the elite to divide people and make the passive at home. We dont need happiness in poverty, we need to stand together.

    My sister sent me a link to your essay “Thinking Long Thoughts: Crucial to Finding Our Answers” as she immediately thought of my incessant desire for truth in an age when manipulation and diversion are so rampant and so destructive (in my opinion).

    I have been accused of being a know-it-all, arrogant, opinionated and so on but all I have ever wanted was for people to stop blindly taking the word of assumed leaders, superiors and respected individuals as fact. I have always felt the sheep mentality to be detrimental, and growing, within our species, but I also feel that followers are a healthy part of society as we cannot all be leaders. Myself, I prefer to be neither. I am much more content observing, evaluating, and, probably far too often, voicing my opinion.

    I find it can often be difficult to maintain a theory or thought to a conclusion as one thought always leads to a gazillion more, so your essays are very inspiring. True to my nature though I will take your writings ‘with a grain of salt’. It is always wonderful to be introduced to someone other than just another ‘sheep’.

      Karen … It’s a delight to read your comment. I, too, have been accused of those same things. It seems being a thinking person is today equated with arrogance, and having an independent opinion is being “opinionated,” which is supposed to be a bad thing. Of course it serves the control system to persuade its minions that thinking critically is uncool, because then the sheep stay within the corral, meek and easy to manage. Always nice to read the comments here from people with the courage to be true to themselves.

        Bronte, it was an absolute delight to discover your site by mere chance. I am a metaphysical minister in Australia who, in his own mind, acknowledges one god only, if that is what he/she/it actually is, that being the Universal Consciousness of Love that permeates the entire Universe. I have witnessed the appalling effect that religion can have.

        Down here for over a year, we have been following the Royal Commission into institutionalised child abuse throughout Australia, the results stunning and sickening the Nation. Every religion has been implicated, with the Catholic Church proving the most insidious perpetrators of child sexual abuse imaginable, the church hierarchy proactively protecting the offenders. Every other church and religion has been publicly humiliated, including the Salvation Army. The Jehovah Witnesses were recently shown to have institutionalised fatherly abuse of their children in their Jehovah’s name. Even Jewish schools have come out of the Commission with great discredit.

        We witness the way religious groups such as the Brethren completely brainwash their adherents and utterly destroy families. A good number of years back I came to the realisation that Hinduism originating in its Brahmanistic form was all about subjugation of the lower casts by the Brahmin (priestly) and Kshatriya (warrior) castes.

        Over the past 20-years, my realisation of the reality of the Archons and they way they utterly decimated the Gnositcs through instigating the brutality of Roman Catholicism and other branches of Christianity, has totally changed my world perview. Follow this with the brilliant success of that truly, psychotic and completely insane chief god of the Archons, Yahweh, in creating the ultimate in religious mind control – Islam. If doesn’t matter who you talk of, be it Yahweh, JC, or Allah, you are talking of the same, sacrificial concept, all the same person. Throw in the reality of Brahmanism, and the horrors of the Aztec ripping of beating hearts from living captives, it isn’t at all hard to visualise the orgasmic state the Archons must have been in with the incredible amounts of loosh emanating from the poor, dying humans. It all continues today with the US and friends ensuring ISIS continues unabated.

        However, this is not what I intended to write about. I noticed all the contributions to your book chapters seem to cease around 2011. It wasn’t until I found this page and your last post in 2014 that I realised your are still with us. Wonderfully so. I am printing out your book, chapter by chapter, complete with the comments at bottom, which, too, I find immensely interesting. I am interested in merging all the chapters together to make available for those of my group who will profit spiritually and intellectually from it.

        My church has no dogma, merely a common belief in the Universal Spirit, The Spirit of Love that resides within us all, and a belief that that very same spirit lives within each individual’s God Mind. Meditation is integral to my life, a meditation where I seek out only the Universal Spirit of Love. No mantras, simply peace and relaxation.

        Through meditation, my world has changed to one of true peace. What I do believe in is affirmations to improve one’s disposition, be that emotional, spiritual, and physical is essential and they do work. In no way are any gods called down, rather, the universal Spirit is invoked through one’s God Mind to improve oneself. That is very different to Hindu mantra.

        Thank you for your work. I applaud you and am delighted to be reading it. At 69-years of age, the most precious gift creation gave me was the thirst not just for knowledge, but the truth.

        Reverend Philip
