Are you a Brainwashed Drone? Raw Foods Awaken!
Apparently it’s unconcerning anymore seeing an obese kid, an elder with an oxygen tank, or a person in their 30’s wheeling around the supermarket because they can’t sustain enough energy to harness the only true thing that is ever ours to control: ourselves. Stopping by a Fry’s earlier to pick up some mangoes and greens, I was heartbroken at the ‘common sight’ which is a direct result of the foods that line the aisles in these places.
Coke, Doritos, Strawberry Syrup for Ice Cream, Cakes, Candy, Fried Foods, boxes of sugar laden cereal, canned dinners, refined and powdered soups, and more make up 90% of what you can find in a place like this. Sales flyers accompany the colorful, happy labeling which not only makes an exciting presentation to the hungry shopper, but more incentive to buy the ‘cheaper’ item. I wandered through the ‘bakery’ aisle for the first time in probably a year, and was sickened by the sight all these ‘foods’ had in common – they had tons of marketing to make the consumer believe they were getting a heck of a deal out of their money, would just roll over in bliss from mouthgasm resulting from the taste, and that this ‘food’ was somehow ‘good’ for them.
Hey – this sugar laden, refined floured, chemically produced box of cereal is on sale, has more ‘added vitamins’ (which are in a form your body can’t use anyways!), and will make you the BEST parent or happy eater if you buy it!
It’s no wonder people buy this stuff – it’s marketed a million times more than vegetables and fruits, or just plain real foods for that matter. It’s making people sick, unhappy, and completely brainwashed through all the chemicals and acidosis that is shutting down their neurological function, reproductive capabilities (nature doesn’t want to reproduce this genetic weakness!!!!!), and overall self worth. If the government wasn’t so stuck up the butt about population control and shutting down anyone or anything that offers hope and redemption, our nation could cure and heal itself at an amazing rate, reduce carbon emissions, transform into an enlightened era, and start living sustainably. The thing is, the government doesn’t want you to wake up, because if you had an idea that they really control everything you watch, breathe, eat, and are around, you’d realize it’s a huge brainwashing industry which wants your $$$ and for you to become a mindless drone which can’t question authority.
That’s why I’m passionate about raw foods – it eliminates all the obstruction, decay, and paradigms which have been pushed into us since such a young age.
Remember that psychology test – the Milgram Experiment?? “The experimenter orders the teacher, the subject of the experiment, to give what the latter believes are painful electric shocks to a learner, who is actually an actor and confederate. The subject believes that for each wrong answer, the learner was receiving actual electric shocks, though in reality there were no such punishments. Being separated from the subject, the confederate set up a tape recorder integrated with the electro-shock generator which played pre-recorded sounds for each shock level.
This was done in the 60’s. Before the experiment was conducted, fourteen Yale University senior-year psychology majors were polled to predict the behavior of 100 hypothetical teachers. All believed that only a small fraction of teachers (0-3 out of 100) would be prepared to inflict the maximum voltage.
They also polled forty psychiatrists from a medical school, whom believed that by the tenth shock, when the victim demands to be free, most subjects would stop the experiment.
The results? In the first experiments, 65% (26/40) administered the experiment’s final massive 450 volt shock, though many were uncomfortable doing so. At some point, every participant paused and questioned the experiment, some said they would refund the money paid for participating in the experiment. Throughout, subjects displayed varying degrees of stress and tension – symptoms ranged from stuttering, trembling, biting their lips, groaning, digging fingernails into their skin, and some even had nervous bits of laughing or seizures.
“The legal and philosophic aspects of obedience are of enormous importance, but they say very little about how most people behave in concrete situations. I set up a simple experiment […] to test how much pain an ordinary citizen would inflict on another person simply because he was ordered to by an experimental scientist. Stark authority was pitted against the subjects’ strongest moral imperatives against hurting others, and, with the subjects’ ears ringing with the screams of victims, authority won more often than not. The extreme willingness of adults to go to almost any lengths on the command of an authority constitutes the chief finding of the study and the fact most urgently demanding an explanation.
Ordinary people, simply doing their jobs, and without any particular hostility on their part, can become agents in a terrible destructive process. Moreover, even when the destructive effects of their work becomes patently clear, and they are asked to carry out actions incompatible with fundamental standards of morality, relatively few people have the resources needed to resist authority.”
When I first heard of this experiment in 12th grade, it troubled me to no end that if I was in the situation, I honestly felt I don’t know what I would have done. Think about it! From a young age, you are taught what is ‘right’: how to look, behave, dress, think, what your purpose in life is, how everything works, and why you should not question it.
We are being brainwashed as a culture – and science (which you have to dig for – see my point?!) repeatedly proves the foods we are eating are not only lowering our intelligence, but causing health illnesses and dampen the brain to actually thinking or caring about it because the body chemistry is SO messed up!
[Right about now I will admit I’m a conspiracy theorist]
For the first time, as I thought about this experiment again today, I realized that I’ve worked VERY hard to come to a place in my life where I no longer feel collaborated groups of individuals higher in control have any power over my thoughts. I don’t feel compelled to buy soda, eat candied foods, or participate in the game of consumerism – just to make myself feel better about life because I have known nothing else.
I finally feel I have teamed up with my intuition, can clearly feel the vibrations and know the result of eating various ‘unhealthy’ foods, and have 0 (zero, none!) cravings for ingesting items that automatically make me feel worse as result. This is just one ‘side effect’ of eating organic, raw, plant based foods.
I have a clearer conscience, mind, body, and spiritual sense of peace. With balanced chemistry levels, I no longer feel angry towards random people, have nasty, hating remarks run through my brain, or feel like I’m not living up to my potential.
All this and more is GONE because I am awake.
When the Buddha started to wander around India shortly after his enlightenment, he encountered several men who recognized him to be a very extraordinary being. They asked him: “Are you a god?” “No,” he replied. “Are you a reincarnation of god?” “No,” he replied.”Are you a wizard, then?” “No.” “Well, are you a man?” “No.” “So what are you?” They asked, being very perplexed. Buddha simply replied: “I am awake.” Buddha means “the awakened one.” How to awaken is all he taught.
(Not saying I’m up there with Buddha, keep reading).
This is our purpose. To learn, to grow, to become enlightened individuals. Unfortunately we live in a situation which is not allowing that to happen naturally and peacefully. We have to fight, somewhat, for the truth – and like I feel right now, it’s a struggle to share true healing and the possibility for peace when our world seems so corrupt.
There is definitely, hope, however, and I’m doubly realizing that. I’ve shed the reins that once steered my mind to follow authority against even my own intuition, and this realization is what has led me to write this post.
We all deserve a freed mind, freedom to become our best, and the passion to ignite and follow our purpose.
Let us not continue as drones or robots, raised to support a society that has only capitalism and profit as its focus. People need to become the focus, health needs to become the ideal, and peace is a result of true wealth in all areas.
If you’ve gotten this far, thank you for reading through my rant – I hope you gained something out of realizing we’ve lost a lot of the control we think we have. It’s not hopeless, however!
If you were part of the Milgram experiment (and I suggest you YouTube it to get a better idea of what it was like), what would you have done? Do you follow the paradigm? Are you now starting to feel lost, confused, and wishing there was more? There is SO much to this universe, everyone deserves to awaken to it and experience it.
Peace to all, and until next time –
