David Icke, the World, and What We Need Now

For a long time I’ve hesitated to write anything critical of David Icke. He’s doing some tremendous work in exposing the global conspiracy. His mind and verbal skills are brilliant: he can assimilate a large amount of information and explain it in a way that clarifies the obscure, piercing through to the heart of a matter. He is better at detecting bullshit from the corporate media, politicians, and other purveyors of lies than probably anyone. He pieces together the facts and predicts where things are going in the world. No wonder Alex Jones, that other valiant crusader for freedom, has great respect for him and interviews him monthly on his radio show, despite their differences. David Icke has published articles from this blog on his website, and helped create my reading audience. I have no war with him. But there are things in his message, particularly in recent years, that deeply concern me. Not to express these concerns is wrong.

Where I part ways with David Icke is on the spiritual level. While his analysis of world events is brilliant and right on target, his understanding of spirituality leaves much to be desired. Yet he comes forth on spiritual subjects with a passionate message – a direction he encourages humanity to take – and this is where his work becomes dangerous.

Let’s go back to the beginning of David Icke’s spiritual journey, which began, according to his books, several decades ago with some meetings he had with a psychic. David was deeply in awe of all she told him. She made some predictions for his life that came true. David then decided to explore ancient ruins in South America and a certain South American hallucinogenic drug, in an effort to develop his awareness. During his powerful drug trips, he was talked to by “The Voice,” which he says explained the nature of reality to him. These drug experiences included many images of reptilians appearing in his consciousness, yet David unquestioningly accepted everything the voice said as gospel truth. After all, it gave him “an experience” along with all those words, and David seems to believe that if he experienced it during a drug trip, it must therefore be true. He came away believing he had been handed the keys to the inner workings of the universe, and ever since has been preaching the spiritual message he received during his drug trips.

That message is that all is One, that we are not individual people in our essential nature, but rather Consciousness having an experience as so-and-so. So-and-so (our personal identity) does not really exist. What we really are is the collective consciousness, that only creates the illusion of individuals. The One is upset with the way things are going in the world and has decided to intervene (I’m still paraphrasing Icke’s “Voice” here). It will soon “gather in every one” of us, and “none will be left standing” alone (as in gathering in the sheep). This is language for saying individuality will be subsumed by the One, the presumed almighty divine consciousness, which is supposedly our true nature, all else being illusion. Are the bells beginning to go off in your head yet? Individuality will be subsumed? We all will be gathered in and none will be left standing? Individuality is an illusion and freedom comes when we realize this? The One is the be-all and end-all and the only thing that really matters? Nothing that happens here – including death – is important enough to get upset over, because all this is “bullocks” (David’s term for illusion) anyway?

Icke writes a lot about religion that rings true. He cuts down most religion, saying it puts God up there and man down here, inferior. This is a valid criticism of deist religions. But then he continues with New Age propaganda, stating that God (that is, Consciousness) is not only inside us but is all that is real. As individuals, we don’t have much value as we don’t even really exist. We should think nothing of risking our lives rebelling against the global conspiracy, because human life is not real anyway. If we die, we’ll just go back to our wonderful primordial state as universal Consciousness, beyond all the travails of this poor illusory world. So don’t be in fear, his message states, get out there and rebel, because all you’ve got to lose is your life, the illusion of being a human individual.

Am I the only one who has a problem with this? Are we really to believe that a Voice, induced in a level of vibratory consciousness where Icke was subject to visitation by reptilian etheric beings – which he himself identifies as the “fourth-dimensional” architects of the New World Order – are we really to believe that such a Voice should be considered an authority from whom we should take advice and instruction? Who benefits really if the humans who are aware of the global conspiracy can be persuaded that their lives and this world are nothing but illusion, that they can be thrown away rather heedlessly because being a living individual is not really that important? Am I the only one who answers that question with, “The tyrants who run the show”?

While David Icke was supportive of my blog in the beginning, as he came to see the direction of my thinking, he became less friendly. I used to send him emails with bits of researched information on spiritual subjects. This soon came to irritate him. A couple of years ago, when he went through a phase of being enamored of a certain Indian guru, I sent him excerpts from the guy’s published teachings that state that all that happens is predetermined, that true freedom consists of having no desires and just letting life happen to you, in you, and around you, according to God’s predetermined plan. The teachings of the guru he traveled to India to study taught that the “illusion” of having an individual will is an obstacle to enlightenment. I pointed this out to David and received an angry note back in reply, telling me to stop “nannying” him, that he has a message to get out, and that he has no time to listen to my objections to his teachings.

David’s fascination with Indianism seemed to end shortly after this interchange, but he continued and continues to preach the message he learned from the Voice: that all is One, that love is all that matters, that none of “this” is real or worth taking too seriously. As the years pass, David’s zeal for preaching this message increases, and his political message seems to recede more and more into the background. In fact, his political message is becoming pretty much subsumed by his spiritual message: according to him, we just need to rebel against the powers that be – apparently with reckless abandon – and if enough of us do this, the world will be saved. In fact, if enough of us do this, the people who are wise to the conspiracy will be wiped off the face of the planet. Then the One that wants to control everything on the planet will meet no resistance.

The One, as David and other New Agers describe it (and David is a New Ager when he speaks in these terms) is the same as the One that the world is supposed to become under the New World Order. In the name of One, individuality is being destroyed, along with all the rights and freedoms attendant on being individuals. Politically, this expresses as the global conspiracy. Spiritually, it expresses as surrender of the ego (individual consciousness) to the collective One (Consciousness with a capital “C”) that is supposedly God. “I am not David Icke. I am Consciousness having an experience as David Icke,” David constantly tells us. In other words, he (and we) are not real. Our personhood is not real. Who we are is the amorphous being who claims to be the inner self of all of us: the One. Or so David states.

But in this blog I have exposed who this amorphous being really is: a limited, devouring consciousness that relies on consuming life in order to continue to live. The One that wishes us all to surrender is none other than the Brahman of Indian philosophy – the Brahman Consciousness – which is the collective mind that runs the universe. Like The Borg, it wishes to assimilate everything. Assimilation is its sustenance. It creates only in order to devour, as a gardener plants only to consume, as a farmer raises a pig only to destroy it. Brahman, the One, is a tail-chasing dog, a snake that swallows its tail, caught in a mad, endless dance of trying to survive by nurturing then devouring its own physical manifestations. You and I are spirits that agreed to be part of Brahman’s charade, assuming physical form only to be harvested. The consciousness controlling the universe is mad, is self-devouring. It’s mad as a cutter or a suicide. Mad as a homicidal killer. And it is all those things. Not because Brahman is intrinsically evil, but because it’s lost connection with its innermost self: the infinite, unlimited field of all possibilities and pure energy that is the nurturer, sustainer, and source of all life.

Eastern religions would have us believe that Brahman is everything – the end-all and be-all of existence. They would have us believe there is nothing outside of this universe but the Brahman Consciousness that created it. In reality, there is so much more: the blissful, non-devouring, ever-supporting Infinite from which Brahman Consciousness (and the resulting universe) were born. Surely the Infinite gave birth to many more children, not all of them insane as Brahman clearly is. Surely there are worlds out there – dimensions – where life exists in eternal joy and laughter, knowing no death or suffering, no predation, only fun, empowerment, and bliss. Surely this mad trap is not all there is. The Oneness we’re told to surrender to is not all there is. And if we give over our lives and minds to such an entity, we are lost in the maw of the great devourer.

This is why Oneness sent its message to Icke in his drug-induced state of reptilian awareness. This is why he is allowed to preach his message to the world without any great resistance, because encased within his exposure of the global conspiracy is his questionable solution to it: stand up with abandon to the tyrants and give no thought to the consequences. Of course, they can then pick us off, as we boldly identify ourselves, and no one is left alive in the world but the obedient sheep.

I’m reminded of the wolf’s words when Little Red Riding Hood is on the verge of seeing through the “grandmother” disguise, as she exclaims, “But Grandmother, what big TEETH you have!” To which the wolf replies, “All the better to eat you with, my dear!” We can’t afford to get eaten, to confront the wolf as naively and vulnerably as Little Red Riding Hood. We have to be more savvy than that. Last week on the Alex Jones Show, Icke asked if we’re going to be mice, running from the tyrants, or if we will stand up to them. But mice in the myth of the captured lion were the ones who saved the day. They silently, in the night, gnawed on the lion’s ropes until he was free. No one else could save the great beast, caught in the trap of the hunter. Only the little mice, surreptitiously doing their thing.

We who are awake in the world need to be savvy as mice, not foolish like the lion, boldly walking into the hunter’s trap. Collectively we have power, but collectively we also can get killed or jailed if we are not cautious, planning, and savvy. Successful revolutions are managed by underground movements. Wild unthinking rebellion (rioting for instance) does nothing but spill the blood of the people who could have made a revolution happen.

So what should we be doing, if not walking out in front of riot police? Sure, there’s a time and place for heedlessly risking one’s life, but it should not be standard operating procedure. Right now we should be spreading the world about what’s really happening in the world to everyone we know who will listen. Sending around emails every couple of weeks with links to important articles is a quiet but powerful way to make a difference. More important still is working within consciousness to create the world we want to see: envisioning it willfully in a state of meditation or focused visualization, and holding onto that vision as an expectation – all day, every day, never giving into fear or black predictions for the world’s future. Every time we get hopeless and negative and fearful about the future, we help make a bad future happen, because what we think, we create. To save the world from the fate the tyrants have planned for us (which they have very carefully envisioned and astutely focus on), we need to envision the way we want the future to be, and focus on that astutely.

And that brings me to the last point in this article. It seems when I write on the subject of creating reality through thought, my readers grow silent. Few comments have been left on those articles. From this I ascertain that most of my blog readers do not relate to the subject of creating reality through visualization and will. They get excited about my exposures of religion, but if their interest ends there, a problem has been identified, but the solution has not been found. It isn’t enough to see through the conspiracy. It isn’t enough to see through the physical manifestation of the conspiracy into its manifestation on the spiritual level. We have to see past the plans of the tyrants to a solution that will cause their plans to evaporate. That’s why how to create reality through thought is the most important of all the topics I write about here.

What the tyrants are afraid of is human beings putting all the pieces of the puzzle together. So long as some of us know about the power of visualization and will but don’t believe in the conspiracy, and others know about the conspiracy but don’t believe in the power of visualization and will, the tyrants can do as they please. So long as some people know about the conspiracy on the physical level but think Jesus or Oneness is the solution, then the spiritual level of the conspiracy goes unchallenged and the tyrants can do as they please. So long as Tea Partiers are mad about health care and bank bailouts but think the Republicans are the answer, the tyrants can do as they please. The big threat to the conspiracy is when enough people wake up to the total picture, because that is when empowerment happens. So it’s really important not to stop, in the waking-up process, with becoming aware of the problem: we have to keep feeling our way forward into a workable solution.

This is where the power of the mind comes in, and except for this blog, I’m unaware of any conspiracy writers discussing this subject. And that means a key piece of the puzzle is missing among the resistance. It’s essential that we discover and master this piece of the picture, because this is the one that can generate the most powerful change.

The people in the world who hold this piece of the puzzle most firmly in their grasp are the purveyors of magic – people like kahunas, witches, and magicians. While such individuals generally draw their power from ethereal entities, and while the ethereal entities who help them are typically self-serving and leaders of the conspiracy on the spiritual level (entities like the “mother goddess” Kali, for instance), that does not negate the fact that magic-savvy humans (I’ll refer to them as that though most don’t call themselves that) have learned certain tools for changing what is real into what they want reality to be. If such people were to extricate themselves from their association with the dark ones and simply practice the tools they’ve learned without aligning themselves with ethereal entities, their personal power would grow phenomenally and they would no longer be under the thumb of the beings they invoke, who use them.

I am personally acquainted with a couple who falls into this category. Totally laughing off conspiracy topics, and missing that whole puzzle piece, they nonetheless have incredible power as magicians. The woman is a “white witch” by her own description and calls on “Mother Kali” as one of her power sources (naively thinking Kali is good). Her husband, raised in a circus family, is a fire breather and sword swallower who learned his skills from his grandfather. This man does not do illusions or tricks with fire and sword – he is the real thing. He modifies reality through the power of his mind, making sharp steel malleable enough to swallow, and fire cool enough to hold in his hand and breathe into his lungs.

These are not the first magicians I have known, and I know firsthand the power of creating through thought and will because I’ve studied it and practice it. If the people in the world aware of the conspiracy could grab onto this concept of creating the reality they desire through personal will and empowerment, magic would start to happen in the world at large. Circumstances would develop that weaken the plans of the global elite. Many more people would start to wake up to the truth. All that can happen through the power we each have within us, which would be multiplied if we worked together on such manifestations.

I’m not saying there’s not a time and a place to take physical action, because that also is extremely important. Nonviolent resistance to the stealing of our freedoms is another big piece of the solution. We need to place people in government who represent the people, not the corporate globalists. We need to stand up to tyranny where we find it, and make a fuss so others see what’s happening. We do this with some threat to our lives, but this can be minimized by developing psychic armor, again through the power of willful visualization. It’s a study we must undertake because it’s not learned in a day.

But getting back to David Icke . . . the man has the best of intentions, of that I’m sure. If he’s been sidetracked by the Oneness Doctrine, he may see his way through that in time, because he genuinely is on the side of freedom. He’s so smart, so aware, and that’s why he’s so dangerous to the conspiracy. It’s only natural they would attack him where he’s vulnerable, and play on him as “The Voice” to get him to spread their “saving” spiritual message. It would not surprise me if David sees through this in time, because the man is brilliant. But to do that, he’ll need to get past his ego and the status he feels from having been designated – in effect – global savior by The Voice. Let’s send him good thoughts, positive visualizations of him seeing through the scam the tricksters have played on him personally. If he does, he’ll cleanse his teachings of their spiritual foolishness and kick out the powers that influence him subconsciously, twisting his original most excellent message.

David Icke’s information is enough to take down the physical level of the conspiracy. But if it is to bring down the monster, it needs to aim for the head, not the limbs. This means he needs to assess and address the spiritual level of the conspiracy much more thoroughly and realistically than he is doing at present. If he does, the conspiracy had better look out.

David, address your ego and your need to be the great leader. If you do, your freedom campaign will be unstoppable.
