People talk about how we are controlled, but McKenna didn't believe it was even possible: here's what he had to say
We are living in a time of great upheaval on a global scale, but there is plenty to be positive about. While the seemingly endless oil wars rage on, people are waking up to the wool that has been pulled over their eyes. Fourteen years ago when 9/11 changed the world forever, very few people had heard of Bilderberg, or of any conspiracy theories surrounding a shadowy, tight group of international banking families who are so powerful they literally own our politicians, making the ‘democratic’ process a total waste of time. Things that most of us now take for granted as fact were not common knowledge a decade ago, and this in itself is positive.
During a couple of lecture back in the 1990’s, Terence McKenna spoke about control and the bigger picture. His humorous, simple wisdom is a great tonic to any feelings of hopelessness about what’s going on in the world today. In fact, everyone feeling paranoid and frustrated over current global events should listen to what he has to say on this matter:
“The real truth is that no-one is in control. Absolutely no-one. This stuff is ruled by the equation of dynamics and chaos. There may be entities seeking control: the world bank, the communist party, the rich…but to seek control is to take enormous aggravation upon yourself, because this process that is underway will take the control freak by the short and curlies and throw them against the wall. It’s like trying to control a dream, you see.”
McKenna believed that our power hungry puppet-masters, our financial institutions, our war-mongering politicians…all of them are ultimately irrelevant. They can try to dominate us, and perhaps they’ll succeed for a time, but this obsession for power and control will eventually backfire on them.
McKenna goes on: “If I were dependent on the notion that human institutions are necessary to pull us out of the ditch, I would be very despairing. As I said, nobody’s in charge. Not the IMF, not the Pope, the Jews…No, no no. Nobody has their finger on what’s really going on.”
He then discusses what this means for us: “So then why hope? Isn’t it just a runaway train out of control? I don’t think so. I think the out of control-ness is the most hopeful thing about it. After all, whose control is it out of? You and I never controlled it in the first place!” As the audience laugh, McKenna quips: “If it’s out of control, then our side is winning.” It’s a lovely, logical, hopeful, and simple conclusion.
