Here again, we would say that oftentimes people are their own worst enemy. Inner weakness leads to all kinds of distortions of thinking and the feelings generated cause actions that are not always in a person’s best interest. The need to survive is a strong inner instinct but one must have the wherewithal to deal with adverse circumstances and the pressures brought to bear by others. So having strength within to stand strong and be willing even to take risks will only be possible with inner confidence of one’s ability and a willingness to take a risk by taking responsibility and accepting a challenge that puts them to the test, so to speak—that is a great way to get noticed, to obtain not just praise but growing confidence by those at a higher level who will be in a position to reward the individual in some way with greater compensation financially or through a promotion to expand their career in meaningful ways.
When there are doubts and uncertainty within, that lack of conviction makes a person more vulnerable to manipulation. If they are being programmed within a deep part of the mind to believe certain things, follow certain recommendations, if this is done to give the impression they will win favor, they will gain a benefit, and that following that path will bring rewards, this, in effect, solves the dilemma in the moment brought about through their personal uncertainty and lack of confidence that will often leave them on the fence and afraid to act in one way or another. Mind control manipulation to program people essentially pushes them off the fence to one side or another. It may be a side they are naturally inclined to be on, but always the instructions will be to foster moving in a direction that will serve the darkness in some way and ultimately backfire and cause a problem. That is why it is done in the first place, to make people do something not in their best interest but it will be couched in those terms—there will be false promises or a partial justification that highlights a short-term gain of some kind that acts as a kind of reward, even though the interlopers know over the long-term there will be damage that accrues and eventually the person will suffer following these orders given surreptitiously.
After all, most of the time the subliminal programming is done to encourage personal inclinations on both sides of an issue, so their natural bias will be rewarded in some way with encouragement that to people with the opposite bias will see as not a reason to embrace the thinking but to attack those holding the view. This is cleverly done so there is a reward for people in both camps and will encourage them to ramp up their passions to embrace their side of the argument and vilify those with an opposite perspective. This creates ideal circumstances to divide and conquer by getting warring factions going. People who are uncertain, doubtful, weak‑willed, and lacking strong convictions will be more malleable and more manipulatable to be put in a position at risk of making grievous errors in service to bad ideas that will cause a backlash and get them into trouble, or simply end up as a kind of folly causing them to lose time and valuable resources squandered in chasing an approach that was intended to fail all along, and will leave a person feeling deflated and defeated, and doubting themselves once again as a consequence.
This is why the process of enlightenment requires healing as its central activity—that will bring about a regaining of strength in all respects, including an inner conviction about what is right, what is just, what truly serves the individual and the collective enterprise. And having a good perspective about the pros and cons and the trade-offs involved with the individual and the collective effort, will allow people to be effective contributors while still seeing to their own personal needs, to not get in over their head and to make a contribution without risking their own survival. That kind of measured, thoughtful, wise approach to things, if done universally, will bring the greatest rewards through productivity and universal success that will be recognized individually, and collectively, as a consequence.
