Are we the participants in the biggest reality show ever made?
We get to choose if we want to play, or walk away. I left a long time ago.
People have likened what is going on during this plandemic to being in The Truman Show. It is so incredible it just could not be real. It made me think about reality television in general. I remember the very first season of Big Brother on Channel 4. It was shocking. What affected me in particular were the games they deliberately played to trick and hurt each other to improve the ratings. This ethos goes against my ethics and integrity, and even back then it grated against me.
There is something seductive about sliding into trickster energies and getting away with it. When you’re told that it’s okay by an authority, encouraged even, it’s tantamount to them giving us permission. Perhaps that’s why so many people loved watching the show, because daddy says it’s okay to be mean to your sister. The ratings were off the charts, so many people tuned in to watch the participants mistreat each other. Participants became celebrities just because they took part. They created spin-off shows such as Celebrity Big Brother featuring people who had been in previous seasons of Big Brother. Perhaps this is when celebrities became people who have just been on television, rather than people who were actually celebrated for doing something honourable or interesting. Watching something on television makes it acceptable and being on television makes you famous. I wonder how many people changed their behaviours in real life as a result of this.
Reality shows have stayed with us. We have gone from Big Brother to Love Island, where viewers want to see who ends up in bed together, and if I’m correct, (because I have never watched a single episode), we even see them in bed together. We watch people watching people on TV. And there are naked dating shows, where people chose potential partners based on their physical bodies, without seeing their faces. I only know this because one night my husband was channel hopping and we came across the show and I guessed what it could be (I thought I was being funny) then I needed to know if I got it right, not thinking that I could possibly have gotten it right. I did,and I found this shocking, again.
What is left to the imagination? What levels of ‘decency’ are now deemed appropriate by the television corporations?
I used to watch Coronation Street for about 25 years. I stopped watching it about 15 years ago. Yes I am giving away my age here, but that’s not something that I worry about. What I worry about is decency, honour, ethics, duty of care and good boundaries. None of which were being displayed in Coronation Street. Repetition of the same story, dragged out and around the garden by a dog that just won’t let it go. I can’t abide gossip and lies, which is the basis for most of their storylines. When I switched it off I walked away from mainstream television almost altogether.
I’ve been wondering what sets us apart; those of us who are not under this psychosis, this delusion, and those of us that are. Perhaps this is an aspect of that. Having a level of decency high enough to want to preserve it, having to walk away from mainstream everything in order to do that. I’ve never been mainstream. Having an innate sense of what is sacred and precious, for example not wanting to share my children on social media, is another thing that perhaps sets us apart. I once gave an interview to someone where they asked me a question on what I considered to be an intimate detail of my life. I responded by saying “This is sacred information and I do not share this with the public. Thanks for asking, but no, I will not be answering that question, or others like it.” After that interview I received many emails thanking me, people telling me that they didn’t know they were allowed to do that. Not allowed to set boundaries. Of course you are allowed. People just are under the impression that anything, everything, is up for grabs, and they have to comply because Daddy says so. Big brother, and big Daddy, abide.
How far can they go with this? How far do they want to take us?
The mainstream fascination with what is right and how to break it could perhaps explain the success of Squid Game, a show that I felt I needed to watch so I could understand it. For those of you who are not familiar, Squid Game is a television show about a reality TV show where contestants are killed if they fail the tasks. The last survivor is the winner, and of course, in order to win, the contestants end up killing each other. Is Squid Game testing us to see if the mainstream really could go that far? Again, allowing a sector of society to become conditioned into believing that having no boundaries and treating people badly is okay, seems to be a natural progression leading towards violence to another person also being acceptable. They’ve been doing that for years in the movies, showing gratuitous violence and deaths that just ‘couldn’t be helped’, collateral damage is inevitable. And this doesn’t even begin to describe the number of computer games where you the player has to kill in order to win.
But who are those that it’s deemed ‘acceptable’ to kill or mame? Which sector of society is being deemed ‘untouchable’ today? There certainly are sectors of society being vilified right now, either consciously or unconsciously. Funnily enough, it’s not based on skin colour as that’s not ‘acceptable’ now, but vilification for people’s beliefs and medical status seems to be what is in with the in-crowd at the moment.
There is much that is not acceptable, but the mainstream do not get to be the ones to tell us what is and what is not acceptable.
The problem is, who does tell us what is okay, what is honourable, and what honour is in the first place? When religious institutions have failed us and our parents are also subjects, and have not done their healing work, who sets these internal standards for living, if it is not ourselves alone?
A heated debate on Twitter is never going to change the world. Wayne Dyer said, “Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.” We can, and need to recognise what we are allowing into our world, and change it if required. It took a lot of resolve and energy for me to walk away from Coronation Street. It sounds funny now, but it punctuated my week, my day revolved around that show for 15 years. I have never looked back and I never regretted that decision. I didn’t realise how much of an impact it was having on me, and how much time I was spending in that low frequency vibration. It’s designed to be addictive for that very reason.
Changing our own world is really the only thing that we can change. But the energy of these changes ripples outwards and affects others. Higher vibrational worlds create more high vibrational worlds. We have to set the standards for ourselves, and put these standards into action in our own lives. Nobody is going to do it for us, most certainly not the mainstream anything.
So I ask you - what is acceptable to you, and what is not? And are you living that way? Are you choosing high vibration in thought and mind, but not in deed? Now is the time to change this. You must ask yourself if you are being congruent. Do you walk your talk and keep your promises? I noticed in business there are many people that make promises and do not deliver. It’s disappointing and there’s nothing honourable in that. Being honourable, decent, and having integrity is very important to me. Is it important to you, too?
