ARE YOU SOVEREIGN, FREE? ~ Caitlin Johnstone on “The Truth, The Whole Truth, And Nothing But The Truth”

“Most people believe that they are truly free thinkers. Most people are wrong. Most people are controlled by unworthy, unquestioned ideas that were put in their heads long ago by other people. To attain a truly self-sovereign mind, you need to put truth above all else in every waking moment. You need to constantly dedicate yourself to learning what’s true and what’s real, and to living in alignment with the truth that has been discovered. Wanting true mental sovereignty means wanting to know the truth in all areas of your experience, come what may. It means wanting to know the truth about what’s really happening in your world, and how it contrasts with what you’re being told to believe about what’s happening in your world by confident-sounding voices on the screens that you see. It means wanting to know the truth about your family and your relationships and the various unconscious, unquestioned dynamics that are at play there. It means wanting to know the truth about the various aspects of yourself that you keep hidden and compartmentalized out of sight. It means wanting to know the truth about reality itself, and how you might have been misperceiving various aspects of your own field of consciousness this entire time. It means wanting to know the truth, even if very powerful people don’t want you to know the truth. It means wanting to know the truth, even if it hurts. It means wanting to know the truth, even if it is terrifying. It means wanting to know the truth, even if it means being wrong. It means wanting to know the truth, even if it means discovering that you’ve been completely wrong about everything your whole life. It means wanting to know the truth, even if it crumbles every belief you’ve ever had about what you are and what the world is. It means wanting to know the truth, even if it tears your life apart. It means wanting to know the truth, even though you know you’ll never have all of it. Most people are content to sit in various degrees of untruth, accepting unexamined assumptions as true because it is much easier and more comfortable than confronting reality on reality’s own terms. They’re happy to let the lies that have been put in their heads by other people rule their experience of this world. The mentally sovereign human does not do this. The mentally sovereign human looks at life through lenses constructed out of an uncompromising dedication to unrelenting honesty, on all levels and facets of human experience. Mental self-rule is not for everyone. It is not for cowards. It is not for the lazy or complacent. It’s not for those who do things only because there’s some material or egoic reward in it for them. These people are destined to have their minds ruled by others. Mental sovereignty is for those who put truth above all else, and who see truth as its own reward. Their dedication to learning what’s true never ceases. These people rule their own minds.”
