Swami Beyondananda To Speak At Conspiracy Con - Oh, and the Issue Isn't Conspiracy... It's Con's Piracy

"Conspiracy? It means breathing together. If we all gather together under one big intent -- to breathe in the love, and breathe out the fear -- the whole world will breathe easier." -- Swami Beyondananda  

Well, once again this year, the Swami has been invited to speak at the Conspiracy Con at the Crowne Plaza in Milpitas, CA June 1st and 2nd and the question is, what will he say?

Probably the same thing he said to the group five years ago: "When I first heard of the Conspiracy Conference, I was skeptical. But now I'm a believer. This conference didn't just happen ... it was PLANNED!"

That got a big laugh, and those folks who are most willing to look down the rabbit hole definitely need a laugh. Swami then noticed that sitting at a front table was journalist Jim Marrs, who's written extensively about the Kennedy assassination. Swami looked at him and said, "I know the REAL story."

He was clearly intrigued, so Swami asked him a question, "What was it that John F. Kennedy didn't do that broke precedent with every President before him?"

Magically, Jim Marrs knew the answer. "He didn't wear a hat."

"That's right," the Swami said. "That's why he was done in by the millinery industrial complex."

Another big laugh ... about a dark, dark subject.

So, seriously. How can we, and why should we laugh at the darkness? Well for one thing, hearty laughter puts us in the heart, and the heart (coeur) is the place of courage. Laughter lights up the endarkened corridors of power, and gives us the courage to lift the veils in these apocalyptic times.

And as you probably are aware, the meaning of the word "apocalypse" is "the lifting of the veils."

Seeing the mechanisms of power "naked" can be shocking, to say the least. So it's understandable why the phrase "conspiracy theory" is used as a dismissal attack by those unwilling (or unable) to confront the unconfrontable. I mean, if you have credible evidence that our government killed John Kennedy and Martin Luther King, or allowed the 9/11 attacks to happen, what do you do about it? How do you "be" with it? How do you deal with legitimate concerns about the illegitimacy of the powers in power?

Denial? Paralysis? Apathy? Consuming rage that creates more heat than light?

It's my contention that the body politic has been in a state of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder since JFK was shot nearly 50 years ago. (In fact, one of the presentations at the Conspiracy Con is JFK: 50 Years Later, the Assassination of America.) 

So I'm going to step away from the word "conspiracy" and create some space that should make the real issue clear.

Conspiracy? It's Really a "Con's Piracy"

What we are really confronting is a "con's piracy." Our commonwealth has been stolen by a small group of sociopathic con artists who have successfully convinced the general public that their inhuman nature is our human nature.
