How I put together Power Outside The Matrix
by Jon Rappoport
Time and time again, during my 30 years as a reporter, I’ve come across what I call “the elite creation of reality.”
It shows up in areas of politics, energy, modern medicine, media, money, covert intelligence, the military, religion, science, multinational corporations.
It’s as if a painter is working on a mural, and the global population is looking at that mural and seeing it as Reality.
This goes deeper. Much deeper:
Limited concepts of space, time, energy, the mind, cause-and-effect—these, too, are “given” to human beings as the be-all and end-all of a story. A story that ultimately short-circuits and short-changes what the individual is really capable of.
The entire mural of imposed Reality is aimed at radically diminishing the individual’s power.
So in addition to my work as an investigative reporter, I’ve been researching the individual’s ability to go beyond this mural of reality.
In the late 1980s, in concert with the brilliant hypnotherapist Jack True (who gave up doing hypnosis with his patients), I developed many, many exercises and techniques for expanding the creative power of the individual.
Some of those exercises are included in my new collection, Power Outside The Matrix. These techniques are aimed at accessing more energy, more imagination, more stability and intelligence “beyond the mural of reality.”
In fact, Power Outside The Matrix is all about being able to think, act, and create both outside and inside The Matrix. Because that’s the goal: to be able to function in both places.
People are consciously or unconsciously fixated on boundaries and systems. They are hoping for whatever can be delivered through a system.
That is a form of mind control.
But here we are dealing with The New. Old notions of cause and effect don’t apply. The past doesn’t determine the present. The way a religion or a science paints a cosmology is irrelevant.
Freedom isn’t a system.
But freedom needs creative power, otherwise it just sits there and becomes a lonely statue gathering dust in an abandoned park.
At one time or another, every human being who has ever lived on this planet has abandoned his creative power. The question is: does he want to get it back?
It never really goes away. It is always there. It is the basis of a life that can be lived. A life that can be chosen. People instead choose roles that don’t require that power. They think this is a winning strategy.
Power Outside The Matrix features a long section called: Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation.
It’s filled with specific examples of my past investigations. Based on 25 years of experience, it shows you how to take apart and put together data that lead to valid conclusions.
It is far more than a logic course.
It’s an advanced approach to analysis.
Establishing power outside The Matrix requires that a person be able to deal with today’s flood of information, misinformation, and disinformation. I’ve left no stone unturned in bringing you a workable approach to analysis.
There is a further extensive section titled, A Writer’s Tutorial. People have been asking me to provide this Tutorial, and here it is in spades. But it’s not just for writers. It’s for any creative person who wants to grasp his own power, understand it, and use it to reach out into the world.
My Tutorial exposes you to lessons that go far beyond what is normally taught in writer’s seminars. In fact, several core concepts in the Tutorial contradict ordinary writer’s seminars, and thus give you access to inner resources that would otherwise be ignored.
Another section of this mega-collection, titled Power Outside The Matrix and The Invention of New Reality, features creative exercises you do on a daily basis that will help you move toward the goal of power outside The Matrix. The exercises are all about increasing your energy and stability—and about the invention of new spaces.
Access to your internal energy, in huge amounts, is necessary for a life outside The Matrix-rather than relying on the illusory energy that The Matrix seems to provide.
I’ve developed the exercises for exactly that purpose: your energy, your dynamism.
And finally, I have included a number of audio seminars that offer a wider perspective about The Matrix and what it means to live and work outside it.
