21 New Rules For 2021

By Dylan Charles | Waking Times

If you’re still clutching to the old normal you’re in for a world of hurt in the months and years ahead. Let go of it now or you’re going to fall behind and likely end up stuck out there with the mob, fighting for something that was never yours, to begin with.

You absolutely must realize, right now, that the game has already changed and that the new rules are being written as we speak. If you cannot open your focus up enough to catch the cataclysmic changes happening within yourself, you’re going to miss the greatest opportunity of your life and risk getting thrown under the bus.

We’re moving into the Age of Aquarius and this emerging paradigm demands total inner freedom, which stands in stark contrast to the ancient paradigm of external control. This war has been brewing for a long time already, but my oh my, is it ever heating up. Prepare yourself for a colossal, even biblical struggle between these two dynamics as the universe works to restore itself to balance under a new sign. You’re not here to steer this thing to your liking, you’re here to open up to all of the possibilities this ride has to offer. Time to be the change.

And this really is the moment so many of us have been waiting for. The matrix control system was never going to come to an end without revealing itself for what it really is. It’s finally all out in the open for everyone to see now, and it’s clear to those who choose to look that the hammer is coming down and the system is going for broke in its effort to consume the entire human race.

Those who learn to stay continually aligned with their inner truth will be able to avoid slipping into conformity, dependence, fear, group-think, and herd stupidity. You’re going to need the tools, temperament, tenacity, and spirit to navigate this, or you’re gonna get fried by stress, overwhelmed by fear, and you’ll end up stuck with the other sheeple in one of the pop-media narratives, blindly carrying out someone else’s agenda.

Your energy will be entirely consumed by external events, stunting your spiritual and inner growth, and you’ll be sentenced to toil in frustration in the remnants of a dying paradigm, able only to focus on conflict, strife, and struggle. It’s really dumb, y’all.

One of the things I’m noticing very clearly these days is how the nature of truth and the source of truth is changing.

Whereas once we could seek and find truth in our established collective history, media, and in the accounts of others, the truth now is being revealed to us in relationships. All of that other stuff is proving to be completely compromised.

And the isolation of the year has induced a purification in our relationships so that now it’s as though we’re all operating in a house of mirrors. At first, the crisis revealed our truest colors to those closest to us, and now, in the reflections of our relationships, we can see more clearly than ever what we need to know and do in order to evolve and grow into this new inner freedom. If we ignore what we see we’ll get stuck in the old ways of being.

So I ask. How did you do when the pandemic came down?

Did you panic? Did you freeze? How far into your mind did the fear get? Did you let it work its way into your heart? Did you lose any part of your humanity?

Or maybe your true colors are beautiful. Did you discover new depths to your compassion in all of this? Did you find solace in generosity and empathy? Did you turn to acts of service to reassure your soul? Did your heart open up wide, bright, and true?

What did you learn about yourself?

Pay careful attention to how you’re showing up in your relationships these days because there are two competing narratives playing out in our world right now. One of them happens on the media stage and features an expertly-crafted orchestration of humanity’s worst qualities. The other story happens in your mind and in your heart and presents an extraordinary opportunity for personal evolution. Whichever one you’re focused on is what you’ll bring to the others in your life, and will determine what feedback you receive from them and the world.

A wise friend recently told me that the love we experience in our lives is the clearest reflection of who we truly are as people.

So, what do you see in the relationships in your life? Are you experiencing love, or are you frustrated? Is there easiness or maybe emptiness? Is there joy or do you feel repressed or bottled up? Do you feel a sense of expansion or a sense of contraction? Can you feel into your relationships to sense which ones are giving you energy and which ones are taking your energy? What is going right in the good ones and wrong in the others?

What do you need to change about yourself in order to have the kind of relationship with the world that brings you happiness, joy, peace, and freedom?

I’ve been meditating deeply on all of this lately. Moving very slowly into the void and waiting to see what naturally arises. Here are some of the things coming up for me lately. They feel like an emerging new ruleset. Like an updated program to run on as we collectively dive headlong into a tremendous and cataclysmic war between freedom and control. Between fear and love. Enjoy, people, and keep the vibration high!

1.) Above all else, be direct and be honest. Be the one that says what has for too long gone unsaid.

2.) Love insanely. Let it all out into the open. You don’t have time to hold back any longer.

3.) Make yourself strong. Physically strong, emotionally strong, spiritually strong.

4.) Practice radical detachment and letting go. We need to create space for the new paradigm to emerge.

5.) Learn to enjoy being patient in allowing things to unfold naturally without forcing anything.

6.) Express yourself like you never have before. Be more real. Be rawer. Be more open. Be more badass. Be more you.

7.) Let death be all the motivation you need to do anything you want to do. The clock is ticking faster than ever.

8.) Don’t be surprised when things work out far better than you could have imagined.

9.) Give away as much freedom to others as you can stand, then give them more. Let them have their stupid differing opinions, or whatever, and just keep on loving them with everything you’ve got.

10.) Do not allow your mind to take the wheel. Steer with your heart.

11.) Make personal evolution your prime directive and watch how quickly your life changes for the better.

12.) Be the person in the room that laughs and smiles the most, showing others how to brush off the madness of the world.

13.) Conserve your energy until it is time to move, then do so with maximum potency.

14.) Stay close to the things you can control and distance yourself from those things which you cannot.

15.) Teach everything you’ve learned so far. Participate fully in the growth of others.

16.) Create relationships, fix relationships, find common ground, build bridges, and be there for others.

17.) Learn to fiercely observe the world and the people around you.

18.) Rewrite the rules as needed for maximum ease and minimum stress.

19.) Let yourself cry, scream, or whatever as needed in order to make sure you are a conduit for negative emotions, not a reservoir.

20.) Practice, practice, practice. Engage in your daily practice every single day. Cultivate your inner peace and strength through the continuity of your intentions.

21.) Maintain the highest possible vibration you can and make a point of being infectious to others.

The Esoteric Meaning Behind Neo’s Interrogation Scene in The Matrix

More than 20 years old now, The Matrix is recognized by fans across the world as being one of the most brilliant films in history, most notably for its deeper meaning and esoteric philosophy.

matrix esoteric meaning

One scene that is particularly intriguing, considering the social climate of today, is Neo’s interrogation by the Agents of the Matrix.

Now, before we dig into the potential hidden meaning here, and how Neo found himself in this uncomfortable position to begin with, let’s first establish some key points in relation to the overall story line that will help us to appreciate the implications behind this scene a little bit more.


Neo in ancient Greek (νέος) means new/young one. This is an important piece of the puzzle to help us understand what the directors of the film are trying to communicate to us. With that said, when we assess Neo’s character in the first film, we find that he is a solitary individual that keeps to himself and is struggling to find deeper meaning in this world by constantly searching the internet.


Morpheus in Greek mythology is a messenger of the gods. He appears to humans through dreams with the intention of delivering divine Knowledge and Truth. In the Greek mythos, he can appear in almost any form in people’s dreams, which could be because anyone, regardless of race, gender, or outward appearance, can be a messenger of enlightenment and Truth.


With the understanding of the deeper meaning behind what Neo and Morpheus’ characters represent in the film, we can now appreciate the intro scene of Neo sleeping (whilst searching for Morpheus) through a different lens of perception and awareness.

You see, Neo sleeping whilst searching online for Morpheus represents the early stages of the Truth seekers journey — “asleep” but still searching for deeper meaning in life — and hoping to find that meaning by seeking out a “messenger” of higher Knowledge and Truth.


Through his incessant efforts, Neo begins to get closer and closer to finding the elusive Morpheus. This, however, also attracts the unwanted attention of the Agents in the Matrix, which represent the enforcers of the shadow government of this system. Their job is to ensure that no one exposes what the Matrix really is, and how it turns unsuspecting every day human beings into useful resources that it can use and exploit.

The Agents proceed to apprehend Neo and interrogate him, where they make it very clear that they’ve been spying on him and keeping meticulous records of his activities, both online and offline, for quite some time now. As we all know very well today, all around the world intelligence agencies are doing exactly that — tracking what we view online and keeping meticulous records on many of our movements.

The agents, however, do not see Neo as being a major threat to the Matrix system, as he is still in the early stages of his awakening and does not know enough to be a major threat. Instead, they offer him a deal where they will be willing to “wipe the slate clean” on his illegal activities online, if Neo will simply help them track down the man they call Morpheus, who they claim is “a known terrorist” that is “considered by many authorities to be the most dangerous man alive”.

This represents that the single greatest threat to this manipulative system — which is overwhelmingly ruled by deception and exploitation — is any messenger of higher Knowledge and Truth that can potentially awaken those who are still “asleep” to what the proverbial Matrix really is. In fact, one could argue this sort of power struggle has been going on for thousands of years, and is possibly why Socrates was accused of “corrupting the youth” by the ruling class more than 2,000 years ago and subsequently sentenced to death; or why, Fred Hampton was assassinated by government authorities in 1969; or, in more recent history, why civilians that were peacefully protesting against Wall Street and the bankers for their part in destroying the world economy in 2008, were targeted by the FBI and even labelled as potential “domestic terrorists“.

Simply put, Truth is terrorism in the empire of lies.


Neo, still being somewhat naïve and unbegun in his journey, rejects the Agent’s offer and demands he get a phone call because “I know my rights!”

To this, Agent Smith retorts, “tell me Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call if you’re unable to speak?”, which results in Neo’s mouth warping in the most eerie of ways.

This scene represents a lesson that all genuine Truth seekers eventually come to learn — this system is not concerned with human rights nor is it concerned with upholding authentic justice. Instead, it inculcates these beliefs and misperceptions into our minds from a very young age, because it serves to help legitimize its unnecessary existence in the eyes of the unsuspecting public and indoctrinate us as to why we think we need it. But in reality, our government guaranteed “rights” can be taken away from us in the blink of an eye.

In relation to current events, for example, many thousands of people worldwide have been arrested for violating curfew orders; In one Indian state, civilians were told they must take selfies every hour and send it to the authorities to prove that they are staying indoors; in South Africa, some have been fined for not wearing masks while driving their cars; In Boston in the United States, people have even been told that they will be fined if they walk “the wrong direction” down the street; Homeless people in France have reportedly been fined for not staying indoors; Some people have been arrested for attending funerals of loved ones because it violated lockdown orders; Others (including doctors and scientists) have had their right to freedom of speech censored online; In Australia, a pregnant woman was actually arrested in her home for facebook posts that encouraged protesting against the lockdown; According to the International Labor Organization, tens of millions are being pushed into unemployment; and travel all around the world has been severely restricted by these authorities who have taken it upon themselves to be the rulers of this planet by dictating what the rest of us can and cannot do. Whether you agree with these policies or not, these things cannot logically be called “rights” since they are so very easily violated and taken away from us.

gavin nascimento imagination quote

There are many other examples that demonstrate how our government given “rights” are more of a comforting illusion than an actual reality, such as the CIA’s secretive Black Site torture programs, which have been done in cooperation with other intelligence agencies and authorities throughout the world. In these programs, people have been kidnapped — without any legal criminal charge or trial — and then taken to undisclosed secret locations where many of them are tortured for many months on end, in ways that are considered to be in violation of international law and basic human rights. The CIA, of course, simply claims they are suspected terrorists. In 2014, however, a Senate Intelligence Committee Report found that at least 26 of the people that were kidnapped and tortured were actually “wrongfully detained”.


Fortunately, Neo manages to escape this unthinkable situation without any serious injury or harm. Soon after, he is contacted by Morpheus, where he is told that he was very lucky that the Agents underestimated his great potential and spared him, because if the Agents had known the great secret that Morpheus knows, then Neo would probably be dead.

Confused by the obvious strangeness of everything taking place, Neo asks Morpheus what the hell is going on, and what exactly is he talking about?? Without hesitation, Morpheus replies to him, “You are the one Neo — You see, you may have spent the last few years looking for me, but I have spent my entire life looking for you.”

This is perhaps the most important lesson the new Truth seeker must eventually come to learn — We are the ones we have been waiting for to change this corrupt world my friends; and we must stop looking for heroes and human leaders to absolve us of this very serious responsibility. Instead, we must all take on the role of Morpheus — which is to awaken as many Neo’s (new minds) as we possibly can, whilst also taking on the role that represents the journey of Neo, by challenging ourselves to become the best version of who we authentically are.

By doing this, we will help to awaken and unleash the unique creative forces of each individual’s problem solving imagination; and we will also find unity in our shared struggle against the injustices, and corruption, of this inhumane system which invariably exploits us all.

If not us, then who? And if not now, then when?

Want To Stop The Control System? Stop Buying Into It

By Paul A. Philips | NewParadigm.ws

Sure, the ruling elite’s planned world takeover with its increasingly encroaching psychopathic control system has to be up there as one of humanity’s greatest threats. However, isn’t the ignorance and apathy shown by the majority in the populace: The sleeping masses, allowing unhindered progress of this control system, planned to make us acquiesce into one enslaved subservient entity, an even bigger threat?

With that said, many involved in the control system are not doing it for controlling purposes. They’re simply doing it because they stand to make massive gains (power, profit and political gains) along the way: Consider those heading the banks or multi-nations corporations and the bribed politicians, how dramatically motivated some must be when overseeing the related agendas and tasks needed to be rolled out…

-Service to self (as opposed to service to others) underlies this greed-driven heartless motivation, paying little or no heed to the consequences of their actions…

Indeed, when understanding that there’s so much at stake for those motivated, you realize that the control system will be difficult to stop. However, the control system can’t progress if we stop buying into it. For instances:

Stop buying into the “convenience” con used to make us blindly accept the “smart” grid system and its related technology.

The ‘smart’ grid system is planned to entrap and control every aspect of our lives. As an autonomous A.I control system in the ‘internet of things’, one of the most important aspects is that it has been planned to control all our money supplies through digital currency in a cashless society. The conveniences will be greatly outweighed by its entrapment.

We can refuse to go along with this by using cash to do our shopping. Stop using credit cards. Stop shopping in places that don’t take cash. Support businesses that rely on cash flows, such as farmer’s markets…

As for the ‘smart’ meters (dumb meters), refuse to have them installed.  Then there are those other wireless applications; smartphones, laptops, tablets… that also have intricate mass surveillance capabilities and threaten the health of you and your family as microwave radiation sources. –We can at least stop giving them to our children…

Don’t buy into the “convenience” of the planned 5G technology with its faster downloads. 5G technology is, in effect, a health crisis waiting to happen.

Stop buying into the ‘divide and rule’ tactic

How can we ever do something about the control system if we’re too busy arguing and fighting with each other about things that don’t really matter? If the masses weren’t so divided and ruled. we wouldn’t be in the mess we’re currently in.

Stop buying into the distraction

Stop giving your power away by buying into distraction. As with divide and rule, the ruling authorities have set up a number of social engineering and mind control programmes supported by the mainstream media to distract you away from recognizing the truth about the elite’s destructive, unfair, unjust, criminal activities such as those false-flag psyops… The extent to which they are prepared to distract us is evident in the ways by which they are trying to make us dumber.

Stop buying into the fake wars

…with their secretly manufactured, or non-existent, forever-illusive ‘outsider enemies,’ designed to keep us in a perpetual state of fear. War is a failure by default: In war, nobody ever wins. War is a sad and blatant indicator that humanity has far from progressed. All wars have been covertly manufactured by the elite for control and profit.

Stop buying into the illusion that you are ‘living in the land of the free’

Even when factoring in the elite’s much invested mind control and social engineering programs, it beggars belief how anybody in this day and age can still believe that they’re ‘living in the land of the free.’ –For just 7 examples to show that we are not go HERE.

Stop buying into the fake food and healthcare systems

When it comes to food and healthcare matters stop buying into the fake or misleading information pushed on us by false advertising and marketing, fake gurus, phoney scientists and others who have been just as much deceived as anybody by Big Food and Big Pharma with their owned and controlled mainstream media…

Fake food or fake medicine: For example, don’t fall for those so-called scientific peer-reviewed medical journals. Many of the journals are biased with bad science so that certain products get approved. Then there are the crooked approval bodies that allow these unhealthy products to go into the market.

As a scathing indictment, it’s easy to see why the food and healthcare systems will always fail: The Big Food and Big Pharma allopathic (conventional) healthcare establishments will drain and destroy your health because they have placed profits above the genuine welfare concern of people.

-Indeed, the list goes on…  

Will the takeover be the universe’s way of giving us an ultimatum..?
