But which is which? I suggest that the best way to discern the difference between hope and hopium is to pay close attention to what the heart is subtly and constantly nudging us to do and be. Dreams and synchronicities also inform. Such attunement requires moments of silence, quiet; so that we may recover our acute, innate sensitivity to our inner longings, what-we-would-be-doing-if-nothing-stood-in-our-way.
Hopium, on the other hand, is likely to stem from psyops or disinfo; resulting from some kind of a “belief” instilled into the mind, usually unconsciously or from a long time ago, that dulls us, makes us “think” that we will be saved and so can just sit there fiddling with whatever is our mass distraction of choice — and wait, — and wait, — and wait . . .

An unofficial survey conducted by yours truly of Internet messages of hope over recent years from writers purporting to foretell our planet’s destiny reveals that our personal and collective salvation is eminently ‘imminent.’
Whether we look at the geopolitical writings of Benjamin Fulford, David Wilcock or Michael Henry Dunn and Neil Keenan, or the channeled messages from Salusa, Saul or Matthew, to name only a few, by far the most rehearsed term to describe our fast-approaching turnaround to the light in the face of what seems to many a growing darkness is imminent.
To be imminent means to be impending, or about to happen. According to the aforementioned visionaries, Earth is on the verge of some dramatic improvements in many areas—inevitably leading to the long-prophesied ‘Golden Age.’
The problem for many readers is that such a global transformation has been ‘imminent’ for years, and that little actually ever seems to change—unless, perhaps, it’s for the worse.
I myself have issues with the use of the word imminent, as well as its synonyms in various messages, where the planetary controllers, the so-called Cabal, are often described as being on their ‘last legs.’
Given that the planetary controllers, according to these hopeful prophets, have been on their last legs for years now, always on the brink of bankruptcy or some other collapse leading to a more equitable redistribution of power and wealth, the question begs asking, ‘How many legs do these guys have?’
Having vented as to my beef with the word imminent, let me clarify that, in the main, I actually agree with the messages that point to a happy ending—or happy beginning—for humankind sometime in the not-too-distant future.
I recently wrote about some of the specific reasons for my upbeat outlook in an article entitled Twelve Reasons to Have Hope in These Dark Times.
Clever skeptics have suggested that such uplifting messages as I’ve been discussing are a form of shadow government psy-op to keep the masses drowsy—and not taking to the streets—through regular doses of ‘hopium.’
Unfortunately, as we know all too well now, many of these clever skeptics are psy-op specialists themselves. It’s one thing to get the exact dates of a transformational window wrong, and quite another to intentionally plant disinformation.
Far be it from me to wholly discount the many positive messages out there simply because their timing seems a little off. In the grand scheme of things, we’re talking about a monumental transition between World Ages, each lasting thousands of years.
Whether it’s time ‘speeding up,’ or ‘ascension’ symptoms, or elevated ‘psi’ abilities, or an awareness of exponential ‘chaos’ as the old-world mentality comes under a variety of pressures to change somehow acting in concert, people from all walks of life, and from all over the globe, appear unanimous in sensing that the jig is up on our outmoded systems that serve the interests of a tiny ruling elite while oppressing the masses.
The reason? Simple, really. Those of us who have studied the precession of the equinoxes understand that a major planetary cycle timed to the top-like wobble of the earth’s axis, lasting approximately 26,000 years, just completed on December 21, 2012.
According to numerous ancient wisdom traditions from both the East and the West, the completion of this cycle leads to the dismantling of an outmoded way of life and the birth of a new one.
But the end of the world, so hyped by the mainstream media, which never lets a good crisis go to waste, though the Maya themselves never said the world would end, was just the beginning.
Our world has now cycled out of the Age of Pisces, characterized by duality and conflict, into the Age of Aquarius, believed by many to be a period of increasing abundance, harmony, and joy.
To summarize, the great Shift of the Ages has come—but not gone. We’re in its transformational and revitalizing energy right now.
What are a few months, or even a few years, spent in co-creative anticipation of a new beginning that, when it finally comes, will make everything we went through in the interim seem more than worth it?
And let’s not forget a crucial truth capable of turning even hopium into gold—or a Golden Age.
For years now, I’ve explored in detail how consciousness creates our individual and group realities. Indeed, I propose that consciousness plays the central role in generating a wide range of human experiences.
The fatal flaw in the hopium argument is that when you get enough people believing something—for example, that the world is about to change for the better—chances are the world will, in fact, undergo an extraordinarily positive transformation.
This fact helps explain the nauseating onslaught of negativity in the Cabal-controlled media, which does everything in its power to keep a lid on the genuinely transformational power of grounded hope based on truly newsworthy (and for that reason, patently ignored) positive events such as I detail in my aforementioned article.
We’re talking about spontaneous evolution, as author and pioneer in the emerging field of epigenetics, Bruce Lipton, would call it.
We’re talking about a critical mass, ‘morphogenetic’ phenomenon capable of revolutionizing everything in an instant that is well understood by the planetary controllers—who would never, in my opinion, under any circumstances, play with this kind of fire.
Check out biologist Rubert Sheldrake’s groundbreaking research in morphic fields to learn more about the tremendous power of collective consciousness to alter outcomes.
In addition, you might enjoy googling the related concept of the Hundredth Monkey Effect proposed in the 1980s by biologist Lyall Watson—where when a new idea finally permeates group consciousness, instantaneous change can occur on a massive scale.
Then there’s the Maharishi Effect, where a small group of individuals, by simply meditating, were able to lower such things as traffic accidents and violent crime rates over an enormous land area and population base.
So, you see, it ends up being of utmost importance that we remain imminent in our thinking and beliefs, our impatience be damned, and ride the wild tides of these times with some faith that we’ll reach the promised shore.
And if we can do so, at some point we’ll move away from being constantly imminent, as we experience a profound shift in our personal and collective consciousness to being immanent—at which point we can learn to embody a much greater part of our true selves.
But that’s a story for another day.
