Remember awhile back when everyone was talking about emotional intelligence? That would be being able to read emotions, like if someone was really in a crisis, or just acting.
I see there's a new crisis, and the usual reactions, many of them bots on Twitter. The social media landscape is a highly managed theatre, and news is all agenda, all the time. If you want to know the agenda, just see what's trending.
I fear the day in the post 9-11 reality when I'm old enough where ALL the events talked about are synthetic. There's the famous saying by a top manipulator that they'll know their program is a success when everything Americans believe is false.
How will the world survive this constant trauma based mind control? It's totally abusive and criminal, and media is complicit. How do these people sleep at night?
On the bright side, I know I can look at it from the outside. It's a freeing feeling, and I know a key to overcoming this increasingly abusive narrative warfare.
This is a kind of spellcasting, the word S-P-E-L-L in there, with trigger words and images, like the American flag used in nearly every one. The good thing is, once you're aware of the manipulation, you're not tossed about in the spin cycle of the hive mind.
It's the dying time of the solar year, but when the heat breaks here, I snap out of the malaise, and get inspired.
An idyllic shire-like image comes to mind of cozying up to an imaginary fire, to flesh out the story in my heart. I say imaginary, because I live in south Georgia, where fires are not usually made until January, if at all.
I like to think about what I'll do during the long dark nights, gestate something new. This Full Moon's sign is Aries, for flashes on fresh starts like that.
And for a surge of searing truth, that burns off the fog and heightens the sense of purpose.
It's closest to the Fall Equinox, so this one's called the Harvest Moon. Other names are the Travel, Hunter's and Dying Grass Moon.
I know of a courageous truth teller that has been caught in the authorities net, in Germany, for questioning aspects of history. He urged others to trust their instincts, to break out of the trances and spells of lies.
There's that kind of truth telling, the dangerous kind, in a time of universal deceit, a dark age of shouting down wrong think. And then there's the everyday courage to tell the truth, in relationships of all kinds. And that gets stoked now too.
This is the kind of Full Moon, where the truth packs a punch.
