Happy New Year! As I told you last week we are in the process of testing new book covers for You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! The present cover gives the look of being a child’s book and it really is not. Children from 9 years old and up have greatly benefited from You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It!, and so have adults – it is a book for all ages. The new cover looks totally different. It looks like we have one and we will be sharing it on Facebook and other places once we make the final decision.
Now for this week’s story:
I have been thinking about the subject this blog is about for a long time. I was not sure if I should write about this subject. I meditated about it, asking for the spirit world to let me know if I should write about this subject. Then the other day, while I was just sitting around (It’s covid time, what else is there to do.), the words “Program Your Mind or Someone Else Will” came to me. I took this, as well as the political things that are going on right now, as a sign that I should write about this subject. What is the subject you might ask? If you do it yourself, then it’s called Programming Your Mind. When someone else does it for you it is called Brainwashing.
I became interested in how the mind is programmed back in the 1980’s. I was watching a talk show and they were talking to Dr.Timothy Leary. Timothy Leary was a very controversial man. He looked at life differently than most people. He was on this talk show because he had written an article about how to brainwash someone.
Well, someone took this information and used it to brainwash a girl and held her in captivity for a number of years. Finally the girl was freed and the media wanted to talk with Dr. Leary. This is why he was on the talk show I was watching. When the host asked Dr. Leary if he felt bad about writing the article, he instantaneously said NO! He said the reason he had written the article in the first place, was because brainwashing was so easy to do that the only defense against being brainwashed is knowing how it is done.
The fact is anyone can be brainwashed if they don’t know how it is done. It makes no difference what your education is. It makes no difference how old you are, what your religion is, what your ethnicity is, or anything else. If you don’t know what to look for and/or what to do to stop it, you can be brainwashed. Because of this, I decided to learn how brainwashing is done.
I personally believe Dr. Leary meant well, but his introduction to brainwashing was terrible. For this reason, I am going to write about how you program your mind, as well as how to resist the society’s brainwashing techniques. I am going to write about one technique each week for a number of weeks to follow.(more…)
