QUOTABLE QUOTES ~ Caitlin Johnstone on “Patriotism and Other Bullsh*t” (Triple-Say)

Ascension Avatar

“Leaving aside the infantile silliness of ‘patriotism’ and all the toxic agendas that it is used to advance, it’s also an inherently nonsensical concept. It’s impossible to be patriotic when you live in a large and disparate nation you can’t possibly have formed a real personal relationship with. Saying you ‘love’ your country is as silly and meaningless as saying everyone in the world is your best friend. You don’t love your country, you just feel feelings for a loose cluster of symbols you’ve been trained to equate with a nation. You look at a flag and listen to a country music song and feel feels, and you call that patriotism. But it’s got nothing to do with your actual country.”

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

Ascension Avatar

“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…

LISA RENEE (Time Shift Blog): “Assessing Character Weakness”

Ascension Avatar

“Generally the negative ego needs to feel it has approval from others, and Self Esteem is hinged upon other people’s opinions and judgments. This is very unhealthy and can be toxic for all involved. No person can lead themselves and purposefully direct their life if they are afraid of others judging them. If your self-worth falls into how others perceive you, it is important to change that perception immediately and unconditionally provide self-love and self-acceptance. Your basic human right is to be who you are, so let yourself be unapologetically real.”

~Lisa Renee

The first stage of effectively building Personal Integrity is to perform an accurate assessment of the areas in your character that were weakened when you met strong resistance. We are all tested by life circumstances when we are confronted with something challenging and the situation really knocked us over and we crumbled.

When our character is weak…

LISA RENEE (Time Shift Blog): “Personal Value System”

Ascension Avatar

In the face of the current challenges we are navigating in this bifurcating world, it is increasingly important now to examine our personal beliefs and value system. To get to the deeper clarity on what reveals itself to be the guideline to your truest nature. In our context this would be consciously participating with spiritually beneficial behaviors that help to define an improved value system and guidelines, for building improved character and personal integrity. Our personal values provide an internal reference point for what is discerned as beneficial, important, useful, beautiful, productive behaviors and actions, which we commit to for the purpose of developing ourselves and guiding our life. Our personal values are what motivate and generate our behavior and actions, it is what influences the choices we make in everyday life. Understanding ourselves enough to have clarity on what we give value to in our personal value system, is…
