News Flash: Microorganisms living in your gut get you to eat certain things at certain times via mind control.
HOLY BASIL! Did I really just say that?
If you are still with me, if you weren’t instantly incinerated by the weirdness of that statement, congratulations…and let’s get on with it.
When you eat, you feed the microorganisms in your gut. Colonies of these organisms live inside you, and they prefer certain types of food over others. They get you to eat what they want by popping images of the food in your mind and by making simple statements, such as, “I want a cookie.” Normally, this is pretty much all it takes. If these simple shenanigans make it past first base without being seen for what they are, then a whole host of other habitual responses kick in, like emotions and memories, which make it harder to resist the “I want a cookie” rouse. This can also happen without the image insertion. For instance, if you visit someone and they are eating something that is normally not at all interesting to you (for me, that would be something like potato chips), but you’ll get a thought, “I want a chip.” No image is needed, since the item is present.
This has nothing to do with your own hunger or nutritional needs, or even your own desires.
If you are accustomed, as most people are, to taking ownership of the thoughts that occur, seemingly in “your head”, then you will actually believe you are the originator of this thought, “I want a cookie.” You will believe on some level that you want a cookie, and then you can either resist or give in or whatever. The key here is the use of the very powerful word “I”. An endless stream of thoughts pass through your mind, but the ones that start with “I” get your serious attention.
If you assume that you are the one thinking the thoughts, then you naturally take “I” thoughts seriously. You believe them. You believe they are your thoughts, your feelings, your desires. This is how the easiest form of mind control, or behavior control, happens, by simply lobbing an “I” statement into your awareness. If I wanted to control your mind, I would not insert “you are getting very sleepy.” Instead, I would insert an “I” statement.
When I transitioned to non-eating, a thought appeared one night.
It was one of these food craving “I” thoughts. Since I’m not accustomed to having thoughts, it was quite an event! It’s like someone burst into my cave where there was no sound and certainly no conversation, and screamed, “I want a cookie!” I stopped what I was doing and just watched. I knew I did not want a cookie, or anything. I was content. The next night it happened again. I asked, “who is speaking?” Then came the statement, “you’re killing yourself!” I asked again, “who’s speaking?” Then came, “you’re killing us!” They seem to attempt two modes: induce craving or fear.
If your mind is silent and empty, or if you have thoughts but are used to being unattached or unconcerned with them, then you will start to notice mind control insertions have a different quality to them. You’ll spot them easily. If you want, you can follow them to their source, ignore them or remove the stream from your awareness. Mind controllers don’t like being seen directly.
Your intestinal bugs only have a few tools to get what they want and they’re not all that sophisticated. Once you recognize the thoughts are not yours to begin with, there is not much more they can do. And hey, if you really want a cookie, for heaven’s sake, eat one. But please don’t let a handful of bacteria hijack your plane.
