Dr. Insane and Meshuggenah Island

So I want you to know that there is a very thin line between fantasy and reality. 


There are those who want you to not only question reality, but also to accept alternative deceptions. 


They want to substitute fantasy and conspiracy and their version of “truth” for what is happening and real or intentionally phony. 


But (more) fake news and lies are not real news and truth. 


They ask questions, and they provide “answers.”


But the answers are more often contrived to make you think they are a reality when they are brainwashing and mindf*cking you. 


They show you maps and pictures–it is nothing but entertainment to sow fear and for mass hysteria and distortion. 


Dr. Insane is running her own Meshuganah Island. 


You can easily get caught up in it. 


But I caution you that there is a thin, thin line between fantasy and reality. 


It’s not a game.


The game and joke are on you. 


Misinformation, psychological operations throw you off track. 


Yes, there are secrets–there have to be. 


Not everything is for everyone to know at the moment.


But the world is not run on: I say, he says, she says. 


There is power. There are plans. There is execution. 


Randomness sometimes. 


Intent sometimes. 


Corruption all too often. 


You can’t really know. 


Were we smart or just plain lucky?


Someday, the unknown becomes known, but not on rants and raves. 


Follow the data carefully and question it to make sure. 


In the end, the King of Kings is guiding everything and therefore there is no reason to fear. 

 

The world is going according to plan.


Fear leads to you wanting to gain control. 


Some people want to vent or to pretend they know something when they don’t. 


There is no reason to conjecture and cross with Dr. Insane into Meshuganah Island.


Making things up makes things worse.


What we do have to do is to keep good winning over evil with truth. 😉

Talking It Cryptic

Speaking

So for a while when I received weirdly worded communications from others, I thought “Gee, this person doesn’t know how to communicate!”


They aren’t saying what they mean or aren’t saying it clearly, and I am having to decipher it, read between the lines (more than usual) and certainly not always getting it right. 


I seriously thought some of these people needed to go for remedial communications and project management training, and was more than willing to send them.


Then, I started to see the bigger picture and context and it was beginning to all make sense.


The terse messages, the cryptic language, the dancing around the topic…these were not (necessarily) because the person couldn’t communicate well, but it was intentional!


No, they weren’t trying to mess with me.


They were afraid to say what they really wanted to say–not to me, but generally speaking.  


Why?


Conjecture, but perhaps they didn’t want “it” so explicit, they didn’t want a flagrant (unnecessary) trail, they didn’t want to potentially get in any trouble. 


So they truncate, obfuscate, used “code” words (not real code, symbolic) and otherwise made the communications so vague that they had plausible deniability or could interpret it just about any which way they wanted.


Ah, sort of a “get out of jail free card”–self made, signed, sealed, and delivered.


This is the art of being cryptic!


Fear and overly strict political correctness is not a good thing when what you really need is clear and honest communications from folks.


We do ourselves a disservice by “playing games,” keeping hidden agendas, and protecting ourselves over the necessity to get the mission accomplished and done well.


Perhaps when people are caught between competing masters and agendas, they are “forced” to do this to get the job done, stay alive, and in the important game we all must play in life.


Ink a dink a bottle of ink the cap fell off and you stink…got that?  😉
