Two-hundred, ninety-four years ago, today, the book of satirical stories, Gulliver’s Travels was published. Written by Irish clergyman Jonathan Swift, the original title was Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships. That has to be the longest book title in existence. I’ve never read any of it, nor have I seen the various movies that have been put out. That being said, there are several well written summaries and opinions on the material and, I’m not reinventing the wheel. ~Vic
Gulliver’s name probably is an allusion to King Lemuel of Proverbs 31, who was a weak-minded prophet. Swift may also be connecting his character to a common mule, a half-ass, half-horse animal that is known for being stubborn and stupid. A gull is a person who is easily fooled or gullible. At the same time, Gulliver represents the everyman with his average intelligence and general good humor. The reader is able to identify with him and join him in his travels. Even though Swift constantly alludes to events that were happening while he was alive, the story rings true today, bringing light to our own societal issues and to patterns of human nature. Throughout Gulliver’s voyages, Swift goes to great lengths to scrutinize, parody, and satire various aspects of human, and often English, society.
A mock work of travel literature, Jonathan Swift’s famous novel is a far deeper work than one of just Juvenalian and Horatian satire. It is an indictment against the prevailing spirit of Enlightenment philosophy and utopianism, an esoteric defense of Christianity against its Enlightenment critics, and a prophetic vision into the future degeneration of humanity in following the dictates of the natural philosophers of modernity. Swiftian irony is one of the great joys of the work. [Where] traditional literary narrative has the travelling protagonist return home to comfort and love, Swift’s Gulliver returns home deranged and a hater of humanity.

Wikisource Text of the Book
I’ve done everything I can – and then some – to exit “stage left” out of this dense reality. I bet many of you feel the same way. How much more do we need to endure? How much longer do we have to wait? It’s the same thing over and over again – like “Ground Hog Day”. The circumstances in your life and on this planet repeat themselves and, don’t seem to change – or they do change but, not for the better. Nothing seems to be working to alleviate this condition. Yet, we’re told otherwise by the all-knowing discarnate voices of channeled messages and so-called spiritual leaders. They say that portals of light are opening everywhere and that the dark forces are leaving the planet by the droves.
Where? How? Which planet are we talking about?
In the meantime, we’re in a perpetual “waiting room” – hoping for news about an outcome. The outcome is the fate of humanity – our fate. We’ve done everything that we feel is necessary to prepare ourselves for a “homecoming” that doesn’t quite come together. We’ve been given dates, time frames and more dates and, we see these come and go – along with the seasons and our favorite holidays. Many sources, like so-called spiritual teachers and channeled messengers, have given lame reasons as to why we haven’t witnessed a transformation, an ascension, a major “shift”. We’re told the dates have been moved or that we’ve jumped timelines and other such delusional explanations – that many are buying into and not questioning.
In the meantime, we wait and hang on. We live life one day at a time and the only thing that allows us to wake up in the morning is the hope that soon we’re out of here – that soon we’ll wake up to the view of a sun birthing from the horizon of a new Earth.
The reality, though, is that some of us are barely surviving or just getting by. We’re struggling. Some of us try to stay optimistic by keeping up with information that contains promises of an “event” that will unfold shortly. This possibility gives us some relief – but the relief is mental. It quiets our mind. What we don’t know is that nothing is really happening behind the scenes. There is no rescue planned, no outside source intervening, no special thing that will, all of a sudden, grant us entrance into a fifth-dimensional Earth.
The problem lies in the lies. We’ve been duped, again! We’ve been preconditioned to think it’s an “external” event – that something outside of ourselves will happen to get us to a realm that is free from strife, free from grief, absent of despair and disappointment. Perhaps something off-world is coming and will get this “whole enchilada” back on track or we’ll go to sleep one night and wake up in a totally different reality – the one that we see when we do our visualizations.
So, we wait… and wait… and wait – millennia after millennia, century after century, year after year. We get placated by pretty, flowery words and promises that state “the shift is only ten years away…” or “the ascension is only two years away…” These empty promises have us chasing a proverbial carrot that we can never grab – because it’s not meant to be grabbed.
We are in a perpetual hypnotic trance – a state created and perfected by “creatures” that have the ultimate formula on mass-marketing and mass hypnosis. It’s the astral version of Madison Avenue. It is meant to keep the masses, especially the Light Emissaries, in a perpetual stupor and, in a state of docility and dependence.
These masters of deception have studied us well and they know our hot buttons. They know the triggers that elicit certain behaviors and reactions in us. They use those, whom they’ve hand-selected, to deliver intentionally deceptive information. Because we’re so desperate to get answers that give us a reason to go on one more day, we embrace the lie as truth.
The truth is that we make the decision when this “shift” will occur. The shift is within us, not an outside event.
What are you doing to shift?
What are you doing to change things in your personal life and in the outside world?
If you haven’t been doing anything because you’ve been waiting for ‘something’ to happen, something that is external to you and out of your control, you’ll still be waiting twenty years from now for that “magical event” that will change things for you. How much time do you have left in embodiment? Some of us are at that point in our lives where there isn’t much time left. Our clock is winding down and we’ve pretty much wasted a lot of valuable time waiting for the “golden ticket” to Nirvana to arrive. Maybe we should have started walking twenty years ago. We would have been there by now!
Throughout history, others were waiting for that “magical event” as well and they all transitioned from this world without witnessing it – unless they chose to be that change. When this occurred, because the individual “got it” or understood what had to be done, they mastered themselves and found the key or the “golden ticket” out of this reality. The golden ticket was Self-Mastery. Those who mastered themselves in this manner were able to transcend the life-death cycle, all illusion, all limitations and the physics of this density.
I am certain that during their various embodiments in this realm, there was plenty of talk about an outside event or situation that would graduate everyone at the same time, without really much effort. It was the “grand-fathered-in” concept where everyone got to go through the eye of the needle just because they were a member of the human race. But, the few who have attained their liberation from this density have done so through deliberate effort, by correct thinking and by making correct choices. How many actually attain self-mastery? Not many.
Many want to be able to obtain that level of spiritual attainment as quickly as one would prepare instant coffee – not desiring to do the spiritual work necessary or take the time necessary. That would require connecting to the Prime Creator, approaching communion in a humble manner and in awe, like a little child. Apparently, this is too much work for many. Keeping our thoughts in check, our reactions in alignment to the Divine and taking right action is not something some of us are willing to undertake.
It is much easier to get the intel from pseudo-spirituals and their astral cohorts than to get the pristine uncorrupted guidance and truth from the One who created all knowledge to begin with. So the easy route, otherwise known as the path of “thinking our way to enlightenment” via disinformation brokers, who are more than happy to provide the golden nuggets of truisms mixed in with blatant lies, is the path of choice. The lies that have been fed to us have kept us from truly taking the appropriate steps necessary to earn our spiritual mastery. Instead of being empowered, we’ve become disempowered. The spiritual decadence of this New Age Era has provided a “smorgasbord” of different ideologies, beliefs, concepts and understandings that keep us arguing and divided – behavior that is not representative of someone with higher spiritual understandings or someone who holds the light. It’s the Dark Ages meets Atlantis – the Era of Deception!
In the meantime, the sinister forces gloat to watch us on a path of derailment. When we think we’re one more year away from a graduation, we regress into an enfolding darkness – the Great Void. This is the age of disillusion, the age of spiritual decadence, the epoch of spiritual arrogance and spiritual irresponsibility. It is the era of non-discernment and spiritual self-indulgence.
It is the time of flirting with dark forces that whisper words into our ears, words that mesmerize, words that are like spiritual opium. These have the power for negative creation because they disempower. They leave us only wanting our fix of feel-good messages and deliberate denial of the unprecedented conditions that we’re facing. We are being used to help create the demise of our civilization, of our morals and of our humanity by our inaction and lack of attention. We are giving our consent for the desecration of a pristine world and all its life-forms. When we say nothing and do nothing, this is giving the “go ahead”. We don’t understand that when we look away, this is a “conscious choice” which leads to a descension. This, of course, will not be pointed out by those who have designed the deception because they want to keep us as their prize possession within the matrix, or cage, that they’ve created for us!
History does repeat itself. Sometimes through irresponsibility and self-absorption, we’re plunged to even darker depths of human experience.
Not too long ago, Moses was throwing tablets at a people who decided to explore decadence instead of holiness. Today, the “people” are displaying spiritual arrogance and listening to discarnates giving messages that lead to self-service, apathy and indifference. Our behavior is indicative of what is displayed right at the end of a Great Cycle. It is the time of pseudo-enlightenment – the Era of Deception.
What does it take to wake up from the hypnosis and enter into true gnosis? Who wants to reclaim their power and Divine connection and, be warriors for radical change? This is the only way to experience “the Shift”, the Transformation – the Ascension.
Have I done everything I can to exit “stage left” out of this reality? No. I’m obviously still here and it takes more than just thinking I’ve done enough! The desire for Self-Mastery has to burn in me. I have to yearn for this connection with The Creator, desire to be “spiritually self-reliant” and be infused with Its Essence. Going to the “local priests” of the day doesn’t cut it!
It’s time to reclaim our Power and Authority. There are no more timelines or dates, no more events in the future. The time is now! Those who proclaim something is coming over the horizon which will transform everything magically without any effort or direct Connection to Creator…are deceiving you.
It’s time to wake up!
