CAITLIN JOHNSTONE: “On Maintaining Perspective In The Year 20-F*cking-20”

Ascension Avatar

Whenever an author, filmmaker or other artist sets out on the noble endeavor of pointing people toward the ideal of living life to its fullest, they usually wind up depicting a character going off on all sorts of wild adventures, skydiving, trekking across the Himalayas, and so on.

In my opinion reminding people to live life to its fullest is the artist’s single most important job, but this is also where most storytellers get it wrong.

TIMELESS RELEVANCE ~ Lisa Renee on “Human Value”

Ascension Avatar

“Those standing at the crossroads of human evolution, with or without an understanding of the planetary changes, are being squarely directed to face the horrifying truth found in the pile of lies that had been covering up what is Real Value. In the globalscape, the horrifying truth of uncovering deception is unraveling in front of every public touchstone of media. Republican-Democrat, Obama-Osama they are all interchangeable images projecting the lie of the Hero-Enemy that the public has wanted to hear in a lullaby to stay asleep. It is all a game of deception and manipulation to gain control over planetary resources of energy.
