the cult of friendship – agenda 2

You have to start somewhere in difficult articles, so I’ll start with a personal revelation. I hope that what is at first, as irreligious as making fun of cancer, might actually allow a greater freedom in your life.

Anyway here goes.  I was hard at work one night, pondering a difficult issue when the following realisation surfaced:

“Friends have been the bane of my life”.

Almost immediately it felt as if a huge weight lifted from me.

Being of a questioning nature, I required to know more.

So if you’re daring enough to question the sanctity of friendship, I would like to seriously provoke you … in a playful way.

~  ~  ~

Let’s begin.

What if friendship is bullshit?

you cant be serious

What if friends are fucking up your life?

While looking for quotes on friendship to support this article, I nearly ‘re-turned back to the friendly side’ guilted by gushing sentiments like:

“Friendship isn’t about who you’ve known the longest. It’s about who walked into your life, said “I’m here for you”, and proved it.”

“Friendship marks a life even more deeply than love. Love risks degenerating into obsession, friendship is never anything but sharing.”

“A true friend accepts who you are, but also helps you become who you should be.”

“A best friend is someone who loves you when you forget to love yourself.”

Luckily I spotted the bullshit & found a mop. Can you?

If not we’ll come back to it.

appetizer question:

Why does the word friend have the word fiend in it?

“fiend (n.) Old English feond “enemy, foe, adversary,” originally present participle of feogan “to hate,” … from suffixed form of PIE root *pe(i)- “to hurt” …

As spelling suggests, the word originally was the opposite of friend (insert confused look). Both are from the active participles of the Germanic verbs for “to love” and “to hate.” …

One wonders why you would create so closely matching words when love & hate are a world apart.

Fiend … began to be used in late Old English for “the Devil, Satan” (literally “adversary”) as the “enemy of mankind,”

Continuing.

In order to maintain your goodwill long enough for this unholy medicine to kick in, let me briefly explain the overall place I come from at present.

I believe the slickiest of slick agendas …

greasy

… operates on & in
this plane…

flipper

… we call home.

A cosmic chess match is often quoted & seems a good enough analogy & the stakes are very high indeed.

In this chess match the laws & rules are unlike anything we are familiar with. The slick ones are able to create loopholes that allow them to …

overtones

… act from a kind of Harry Potter-slash-Bedazzled framework. To make matters slicker, Harry & friends would be on the fiendish side.

Anyway under this system of rule, symbols are legal tender. Seduction is allowed. Trickery is the name of the game. And emotions are harvestable items.

What I believe we are looking it is two worlds semi-merged/merging into one. A real one & an illusory one. This is quite easy to imagine if you consider your lounge as the real world and what you see in your tv as the illusion. They are both in the same space, but while one is ‘solid the other uses light & technology to …

reflected

… mirror & mimic it.

I am reminded of the Sacsayhuamán structure in Peru when I think of how ‘enchantedly close’ this mirror world is to reality:

slick

“The blocks have a different shape, but despite this they are fit together with unbelievable precision. It’s impossible to squeeze even the knife’s blade between them … the blocks are fit together just like the elements of a puzzle. Engineers believe, that this type of masonry provided the maximum stability … of the construction”

Getting this matters because untold harm is being done by people who have their intrinsic heads firmly up their illusory asses. All manner of agendas are being snuck under the radar by people gorging wildly on every scrap of New World bs without checking the fine print, so to speak.

The mirror world is stabilised by those who refuse to see it. And tis creation is better, stronger & faster than the ‘real’ one because it has acquired more meaning & attraction & gloss & HD than the ‘solid’ world.

To maintain this tenuous world constant emotion & attention are required. After all it is illusory. We have to keep accepting it.

acts sept

That’s why TV never shuts off. Radios go constantly & the news is spewed on the hour.

We have not understood emotion & how it is harvested. Check out Matt Delooze’s work on this.

I think our emotions are used to turn us into a kind of …

sticky

… double-sided sticky tape through which
the illusory world is made to adhere …

… to the real one.

The real adversary/fiend does not have the ability …

zombie

… (or solidity) to do this (at this time).

So varying agendas maintain the transference of power using human emotion & acceptance. One of the most potent methods to achieve this is …

happy fun

…  seduction.

“seduce (v.) 1520s, “to persuade a vassal, etc., to desert his allegiance or service,” from Latin seducere “lead away, lead astray

And friendship is being used to play a big part in this.

We have been ‘seduced’ by friendship from day one.

What felt better than escaping from the …

schoolroom

… boredom of prison-life
to join our
favourite buddies

after school

… in their grand adventures.

And then we grew up & what felt better than escaping from …

… the boredom of prison-life
to join our
favourite buddies

fun and frolics

… in their grand adventures.

What I learned very young was that if you did not have friends you were…

unwanted

& therefore ‘something’ was …

wrong with you

Ever noticed how TV portrays the sense that when a lone(ly) person finds a friend they are SAVED.

I never found out what was wrong with me, but I have been driven all my life to try to have friends to fix my wrongness & soothe the shame of being unwanted.

So it’s taken me a long time to be able to step outside of friendship just enough to smell the bs.

And then I noticed that friendship actually has the same …

hollow feeling

… hollow feeling
as Christmas.

Those who’ve done their research know that a hollow feeling at Christmas is completely understandable given its real nature.

I feel this has to do with –

The expectation of friendship we’ve been sold:

“Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
Cause I tell you, that’s what friends are for

The meaning of friendship we’ve been sold:.

“I hope the day will be a lighter highway
For friends are found on every road…
Making friends for the world to see
Let the people know you got what you need
With a friend at hand you will see the light“… (Elton John)

The illusion of friendship we’ve been sold:

“When you’re down and troubled and you need a helping hand
And nothing, whoa, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me and soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nights
You just call out my name, and you know wherever I am
I’ll come running, oh yes I will, see you again
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, yeah
All you got to do is call”

Isn’t it interesting how much darkness & light appears in the realm of friendship songs. And everywhere else for that matter:

“True friends are those rare people who come to find you in dark places and lead you back to the light.”

“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.” – Helen Keller

FYI about that last song written by Carole King (Hymn for the King):

“King has stated that “the song was as close to pure inspiration as I’ve ever experienced. The song wrote itself. It was written by something outside myself, through me.”

Also interesting:

“In 2015, Taylor performed … the song at Hôtel de Ville, Paris at the invitation of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo in tribute to the victims of the January 2015 Île-de-France attacks.”

One wonders why, especially when you see the honest quotes of the non-conspiracy-minded beneath…

paris

Michael has suggested that many songs are Lucifer worship & I have to say I’m inclined to agree. Especially when you pay attention to the repetition ad nauseum of the same sentiments & lyrics.

Matt Delooze has talked of how the Queen’s Jubilee is a necessary ritual by the Serpent cult minions to request permission to continue ruling over us. So songs may well be a part of this.

Anyway back to our theme, like everything else in the illusory world you can start to see the cracks if you pay attention long enough.

What to look for?

Anywhere there is too much attention. Too much ‘gushing’. Too much media focus. Too many quotes. Too many stories. Any place an ’empire/corporation/giant business’ has sprung up. Anywhere there is a lauded creator and too many participants.

bf

And anywhere there is way too much …

emotion

… emotion.

The cult of friendship has taken friendship to idol status.

Friendship is now worshipped & emoted over everywhere.

We just can’t get enough friends or friendship.

But we try. Forget about weirdo cults & Mormons & Scientologists. They’re nothing in comparison to the numbers of ‘friends’ we have converted &/or

sacrifice

… sacrificed …

worship

… on the …

more worship

… altars …

altar

… of this new religion whose overall goal is  …
Peace & Unity – 
because these two items are essential
to the legal re-creation
of a New World (Order).

By the way please try to remember that when you are texting & facebooking you are not ever talking to your ‘friend’. Instead you are pouring your emotion into a symbolic light-box. It’s a go-between. You are ALWAYS talking (praying) to it, emoting into it & bowing to it. It is not your friend. If it was it would look something…

altered

… like this.

Your homage goes to those who are hidden behind those

logos

… who own the phone.
Not those you are attempting to connect to.

Really it’s quite fiendish.

However its easy to fb & text bash, but they are only the (rather understandable) harvest of the true golden cow …

friendship

… the idol of friendship.

The ritual of acceptance for the friendship agenda …

celebration

… held a ten-year jubilee celebration which was willingly attended by millions worldwide.

What are we looking at with friendship & what is the cost to us?

My theory, & remember this is questioning, provoking play, is that friendship has been promoted to amplify & hasten the Unity agenda.

And just to clarify Unity,
is another illusion,
what’s actually being cultivated is …

illusion

… ALIGNMENT.

In alignment there is very little connection just everyone moving in the same direction … saving the planet, going green, embracing technology, fighting disease, embracing climate change, indulging in same-sex sex, talking in baby voices, watching Survivor this or Master that etc …

So let’s rip apart friendship. Break it down & see the hypocrisy.

The opening quotes gave us a big piece of the story.

Friendship is all about …

Me.

What my friends do for Me. How they make Me feel. How they are there for Me always. How they accept Me just as I am.

So I guess friends are Saints (who forego their lives to make ours better) – hmmm … apparently we are am their gods & they worship our existence.

Next friends are about having …

Fun

We must have a constant stream of fun with our friends, it should be party time all the time or what’s the point?

“fun (n.) … “a cheat, trick” (c. 1700), from verb fun (1680s) “to cheat, hoax,” which is of uncertain origin, probably a variant of Middle English fonnen “befool“.”

nooooo that can’t be right… having friends shows how cool we are.

Friends are…

Family

They’re the family we choose for ourselves!! … yay they will make an abiding commitment to us ….. ummm better just bash out this bull shit a bit more…

Friends are not your family.

And never will be. Friends lack the quantum entanglement that we have with our real families (for better or worse). Friendship is actually a monumental cop-out. It’s a way to have pretend relationships. In the Unity agenda friendship is being used to mimic relationship, by providing a cheap family fill-in while all the time we get further & further away from each other as the fear of commitment increases.

“Friends …

close

… developed an alternative family lifestyle … It presents the idea that “all you need is good friends” & can construct family through choice … It portrays a new way of living life and developing relationships which are not normally seen in conventional society. According to a pop culture expert … Friends is “one of those rare shows that marked a change in American culture … a lifestyle that centres around creating and sustaining friendships between friends running their own lives & …

family

… seeking help from each other “

Let me prove my point about how insubstantial friendship really is & how Hollywood knows this.

No one kidnaps friend in movies or real life & holds them to ransom.

kidnapped

Why because they don’t matter that much to us. We don’t have the same fire in our belly for friends that we do for family.

We can care about people an awful lot but friendship is a lightweight commitment & holds people at quite a distance. I’m guessing they needed ‘Friends’ to run for 10 years to build up a quantum entanglement with the IDEA of friendship as Family. Apparently it takes about 10 years to really ‘learn’ something – so that was good timing eh?

Now maybe there’s a good reason for the different relationships we have with friends that should be seen & acknowledged & engaged with. But this drivel about being counted on, buying Cadillacs & coming running no matter where or when needs to stop.

Before we consider where friendship belongs let’s consider one last thing.

What’s the number one thing that friends do when they get together, whether virtually or in person.

They talk.

And talk.

And talk.

And talk

Ok actually babble.

In another article I hope to touch on how another agenda is keeping all our orifices open. For now just consider that it might be useful for us to learn how to keep our mouths shut a little more.

Friends have been sold as a panacea for loneliness.

Loneliness has been sold as a shameful indictment of a unloveable character.

Loneliness is a concept created to hide the importance of spending time alone.

Aloneness grants the grace stillness & silence.

Silence has been sold as fearful & connected back to loneliness.

So friendship has a great deal to do with avoiding silence.

But guess what … when you do find silence you can’t stop grinning with delight. The world stops being fearful when you see the silence.

You’ll never find it in the …

babel

… babel of friendship.

So where does that leave us with friendship?

Here’s an idea. I had more to write but my time is up for now. So I’ll leave you with this or maybe you will come up with your own ideas. Quite possibly you have had one or two great friendships because they were like this.

I think we might best do friendship by creating a definite partnership with someone to help us grow & develop in particular areas. Somewhere we have a weakness & wish to create strength. It would be a two-way street. Like how partners work together in martial arts. Both learn with each other & help each other learn. Becoming more than either were before. Struggling, perspiring, challenging, irritating. Adding to life rather than having fun, hanging out or killing time.

After all how much time do you think you have to kill?

    I have no friends. No one knows “me”. I have acquaintances/close neighbors that I help/help me from time to time when needed. I have a very close relationship with my dog. We enjoy the silence.
    Thank for the article Alex, it was only yesterday that I was once again mentally going over “supposed friends” from long ago that proved themselves not to be. I understand that they never were, but now I know why. Thanks again.

    Thanks empowered – it’s never easy to tear down sacred cows & honest comments give an extra punch.

    I’ve been thinking that taking an inventory of the people in our lives & describing the relationship to ourselves could be very useful. And a lot better than trying to glue the fantasy of friendship to reality

    • empoweredbyknowledge replied:

      Totally agree. I always prefer the painful truth than the prolonged fantasy. It goes for family members as well. Thanks again.

  3. Sophia G replied:

    This post is spot on! When I think of all the ”friends” I had in reality they where all huden enemies. Like mass media, religion, education, ”friends” are in place to re focus our attention from the important things that we need to look at or understand to get out of this prison matrix. Like that Illuminati card depicting MTV as ”EMPTY VEE”, ”EMPTY VEE” is everywhere and they all want to manipulate and mind control our belief system….

    • alex robinson replied:

      Hi Sophia
      The real work as seeing where we have co-authored our own prison. In a sense nothing has been done to us, that is the trickiness of this. We can’t fight our way out. Each of us has our own personal work to do. It’s like learning to walk on a knife edge. Even the friends thing is not about friends mistreating us but where we accepted the idea the cultural idea of what friendship & kept trying to achieve that, even though so often we had the experience of it not working. I hope my article starts to loosen that mindfuck up a bit

  4. Sophia G replied:

    Can you do a post about synchronicity?

    And to everybody that’s reading the comment section, what’s your opinions about synchronicity? I know some people will say that you’re noticing the patterns whether you realize it or not. And I definitely don’t agree with that opinion. Some will say that some of this stuff shows you’re on the right path and I’m not sure I’d believe that one either. My explanation for that one is basically not having blind faith or trust in anybody or anything anymore. The syncs just aren’t helpful or useful to me. I keep seeing the number 44 all the time. What’s up with that? This stuff is happening WAY too much and it’s definitely not a case of being on the lookout for these patterns. Truth be told, I don’t want to see any patterns. I see people talking about how it’s a sign you’re on the right path or whatever. No. Whatever it is, I don’t have a good feeling about it. I have no reason to trust whoever or whatever is sending these patterns my way. I don’t trust them, these numbers are haunting me and these numbers won’t go away! (If anyone has some more Intel of what these numbers 44 are please explain.)

    • alex robinson replied:

      I wrote a chapter in the Sync Book 2 on this – basically how syncs can ‘take the piss’. I use syncs but am very hard on them – unless they make themselves clear, I ignore them and as for 11:11s they can take a running jump…

  5. Suze replied:

    I have come back to this article again and again since it has been posted, wanting to comment and not being sure how. August has been a month of dealing with toxic friends for me. Can I use the word synchronicity?

    This is a sacred cow that is quite difficult for me on some levels. Growing up in a foreign country where I was ostracised as a child for being foreign and then being neglected and abused at home, I escaped into books and especially loved Enid Blyton where there were always loving families and friends. I have always longed for that feeling of being accepted and so I became the “saint” to my friends. It is only in the last couple of years that I realised that by being the “saint” and not having it reciprocated, that friends used me when they needed me, ignored me when they didn’t and that I have basically opened myself up to being abused again. This is a hard pattern to let go of, but I’m learning.

    But certain friendship myths I have never fallen for, which is probably why I could never get into the series “Friends”, even though I tried. And I hated the movie Thelma and Louise where they become destructive and commit suicide together. And facebook where some people have 400 friends? How can anyone really know that many people as friends? And I have always felt left out in large groups, because most of the conversation is meaningless.

    I agree with the concept of friends as a partnership where we help each other to grow. I have had a couple of those and it has only been one or two at a time.

    But I have also fallen for the belief that there was something wrong with me, because I did not have a large circle of friends and so I have tried to cultivate that. This month has shown me that I would rather be happy with myself.

    PS. Rachel Green in Friends? MK Ultra victims often refer to a Dr. Green.

    • empoweredbyknowledge replied:

      Hi Suze, your background circumstances are very similar to mine, including Enid Blyton. I used to love the theme song for Cheers, “where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came”. Anyway, I used them as substitute tools or crutches for the neglect etc, and although I now know the concept of friendship is very different for me than for those I’ve encountered all through my life I’ve also understood that if it was “natural” it would have sprung up at some point in other people, but it just affects those of us that need/yearn/crave(ed) it most. I can’t blame others because I feel we have all been manipulated on different levels in a personalized/customized way according to our “needs.”
      I wish you receive as much love as you can give or handle.

    • alex robinson replied:

      Hi Suze
      I am so sorry, I responded to you a few days ago & now find the comment is not here

      I so appreciated your comment for a couple of reasons. One that you ‘contemplated’ over a period of time, this is such an invaluable tool & one I use all the time for articles.

      And also because I related to so much of what you said. You are not alone in this as empowered by knowledge also confirms.

      very best to you

      • Suze replied:

        Thank you both Alex and empowered by knowledge for your kind and generous replies. And I’m glad to see that someone else liked Enid Blyton, as it’s often looked down upon to admit that.

      • empoweredbyknowledge replied:

        I LOVED Enid Blyton, for the camaraderie of the children and how well they got on (contrary to my own family). Also enjoyed The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe as these helped me enormously to go through the wardrobe to “another place” I could never wait enough to reach that part of the book! Even enjoyed Malory Towers series (and I had been in a boarding school nothing like that!)… The thing is, they served me as crutches to live in a parallel world within my own imagination, and I’ll be forever thankful.
        Take care sweetie, we’re not alone, just isolated….
