Positively thriving through the Collapse of Civilisation

Submitted by Open on Thu, 05/01/2014 - 11:50

Have you ever watched something happening in slow motion? You can quite clearly see the end result, but nevertheless, you can't quite believe in your mind what your eyes are seeing. Like when the twin towers 'collapsed'. The demolition was happening there right in front of you, but you had to pinch yourself to make sure you weren't just dreaming. I feel exactly that way about modern society right now. The collapse is already happening, but in slow motion, so you can't quite believe the entirety of it. What will it look like as the 'buildings' topple? More importantly, how can we not only survive the shift, but positively thrive in it?...

Slow motion free fall

Have you seen the film "Collapse" yet? It's a grounded, real and at times very emotive interview with the late whistle-blower Michael C Rupert. I believe everybody on the planet should watch it (I've included it below). You hear the calling of a soul, put here for a purpose. Never so clearly have I witnessed a man express so eloquently, the destiny that drew him here. He sums up so marvelously the reason why society is going to collapse. Let me correct myself: why it is already collapsing, just that it's in slow motion, and not everyone has yet pinched themselves out of the dream that prevents them seeing the reality of it.

Society is built on the foundation of 'infinite growth', the need to continuously expand in order to service a surging ocean of debt. It depends on the ever burgeoning exploitation of natural resources. Which is why governments and corporations are more concerned with the last pockets of oil under the pole, rather than the ice on top of it. It's why they're stripping the tar from the sand, and fracking the earth into oblivion. Therein lies the problem. That's why society is already in a state of slow motion free fall. Because we live on a planet of finite resources, and the two ends no longer meet. We've built foundations on sand and now the tide is fast flowing in. Nevertheless, I am an optimist. Where others might slip into fear, I see the light shining through the shadows. There's a way to survive what is to come. No, there's a way to positively thrive in it!

Thriving the meltdown

You first have to accept what you see. That's a challenge in itself. Watch the film, especially towards the end, because it's fascinating. The interviewer suggests all manner of information can be presented to support the view you want to put across (like the 'debate' on global warming for example). And he's right. But that's not what Michael is about and neither am I. For me, and for others I work with, the debate is not necessary - such intellectual pontification is a pointless waste of time. We've already seen the towers collapsing. I can feel the energies of higher benevolence instigating the collapse mechanism.

The earth needs to be saved from the wanton, consumeristic destruction. The debate - if ever there was one - is over. And until you can see through the veil, there's nowhere to begin. So my first suggestion - assuming you feel any resonance with me - is to work to see past the veil into what is surely now taking place: collapse of the civilisation we currently depend upon. When this lands for you, you'll realise like the Hopi Elders, that the only way to prosper through this collapse, is by spiritual means. This will be a 'war' of the spiritual through the material. Not fighting. Rather breaking through the sense of physical disempowerment into the liberation of the spirit. The expression of the boundless, unlimited you, and watching this miraculous nature shine out into the world. Trusting that your every step will be supported. Not in the way your ego might want. It won't deliver the physical outcome you desire. It'll deliver much more than that: as the old skin peels off, a metamorphosis into an interconnected, interdimensional way of being - The rise of the Divine Human.

But yes, at this time we are physical beings too. And we'll need a platform from which to unveil our divine being at the heart of every man, woman and child. Just as the dragonfly stands on the leaf, peels off the old skin and unfolds its wings in the sunlight before taking flight, so we'll need a stable background to help people learn to fly.

What does that mean exactly? It means we have to bring as swift an end to the system as possible. It's gobbling up precious resources and energy, ridiculously wasting them on idle rubbish, mindless entertainment and hopeless addiction. We have to ween ourselves off this crutch through non-compliance with the corporations that would try to bolster it - those that would like to keep mankind dwelling in the murky depths of the pond, rather than flying liberated above it.

Discovering how less is more

We have to spend our time and money wisely now: to invest in ourselves and our future (especially since paper money will lose its value); to gather together the resources and communities that can help one another out as society steadily pulls itself apart. Even if you continue to work in the matrix, you can still prepare. And don't worry, you have time, if you begin now. Society will not collapse in one fell swoop. It will be a steady degradation. It's happening now. It's just that most haven't clicked yet as to what's going on. So you've got time to gather together, share ideas, support and suggestions about what might work best. You can start growing your own food and collect a reserve of essentials to tide you through difficult times.

That's the inspirational idea behind Transition Towns, which have been springing up and thriving all around the world for several years now. It's about supporting local skills, already developing the web of a local support and resource mechanism. Even if it's just a micro community of a few neighbours and friends, it will make all the difference as the globalised structure fractures. In the film below, Michael shares a poignant and prophetic example of the fate of two countries - North Korea and Cuba - that both suffered through the collapse of the iron curtain: affected because they were both dependent on Soviet oil, just as the civilised world is right now.

The North Korean approach was to centralise resource, for government to control everything, like the collectivised food supply and nationalised energy. Communism? It sounds suspiciously like the leading western 'democracies' to me. And what was the result? Starvation on a massive scale. Cuba on the other hand encouraged people to come together in local communities, to grow their own food in their own back gardens, thus consuming a fraction of the energy. They no longer have the paraphernalia of modern society - a blessing - and the people positively thrived by needing less, discovering that less is more.

Some will say we can use unlimited supplies of 'free energy'. Whilst we may benefit from new technologies that could come through, what we have to realise is how hopelessly dependent the current system is on oil. How will all those fossil fuel engines be replaced? Where will the resources come from to build the new machines, gadgets and widgets? Whatever technology we discover to tide us through, it is my strong assertion that we need to get used to consuming less, using wisely the resources we currently have...

Even if you new the world was to end tomorrow, would you plant that apple tree today? Would you live wisely, with compassion and a soft footprint on the earth? It is these souls that will ascend through the collapse of the old world. This is the new consciousness which will thrive as the old is peeled away.

Pinch yourself awake

The universe is a flowing ocean of energy. Humanity - spurred by an Interdimensional Intervention - has built a dam and tried to contain it in some eddy current. And we've turned a blind eye as the realigning energy of higher dimensional forces and devic consciousness now comes in to break apart the false reality fabric over time. This shift and cleansing process that is beginning will be unlike any other to have taken place on earth. Why?

Because Gaia has released her karma. She needed the control mechanism too, in order to experience being fully accepting and forgiving of those that would disrespect her. But she's processed that constriction now and needs it no longer. Thus the 'matrix' no longer has a foundation. It will be peeled off over time. There will be no place for the old human consciousness, which will be shed with the skin too. Instead, will incarnate the new human consciousness - Divinicus Cometh - to thrive through this cleansing process which has now begun.

The renewed human spirit is meant to ride this realigning wave, rather than try to manipulate it. Because anything that tries to control something else, ultimately ends up controlling only itself. So we need to learn to ride the wave of the soul once more. To listen to it and above all, feel it coursing through our veins, respond to its direction. We need to master the inner alchemy of change. There's two streams of consciousness within you. Which do you identify with: the sense of separation, the fear and contraction? or do you penetrate that, soften through it and flow with your eternal spirit?

Right now too many are still caught 'rabbit like' in the car headlamps as the slow motion tsunami approaches them. Hoping, pretending, that they're just in a dream and when they wake up, all will be okay, the car won't really be careering towards them. But by then, it's too late. I urge you then to watch the film, pinch yourself awake, but then let the soul inspire you to make new choices in this new multidimensional landscape. And if you can't yet clearly hear the soul and follow its guidance through every choice, then I would suggest that's the best place to begin. Here's the documentary and afterwards, if you'd like help with the soul guidance part, feel free to get in touch...

That's awesome Open - what an epic song for these days. Yes we have to break through the BS - !


Have you felt it yet? It's all gotta go. Everything that previously defined us. Everything that limited us and made us less than who we truly are. We have to break through the BS, go deep within, and get to what's really real. We have to go into the depths of the soul and make some noise.... "It's time's like these you learn to love again. It's times like these you give and give again"... Open <3


OMGosh, I watched the latest documentary "Apocalypse, Man" on Friday... I didn't know he committed suicide!!!

I kept seeing something in his eyes though, he was already beyond... I wish him well on his journey!

Btw the "Apocalypse, Man" film -especially Parts 3 and 4- are worth watching (they are only like 10-15 minute-long each...)


And here (Fukushima):



A very powerful article and documentary, what a remarkable and courageous individual Michael Ruppert was.

It was beneficial for me to look at how I might choose if I were the hundredth monkey and know that every little choice I make has a significant outcome for the whole. It was useful to frame my life choices in this way, things seem a little clearer, thanks for the reminder...

Love and thanks, Fiona


Yes I'd say we're on the same page Paul.

It's also important to say the angelic realms will surround the planet as this process unfolds. Anyone who still has karma, but is working to break free and can find the light, will make it into the angelic realms where recovery, rest recouperation followed by reincarnation can happen.

In due course though, as the planet becomes unlivable in the 3D, that will almost certainly have to be elsewhere - another constellation.

What happens to people who don't find the light? In short, the constant cycle of reincarnation.

The Universe it working to unleash the free flow of Unity Consciousness throughout and souls are the conduit for that.

When a soul drops physical incarnation, then it starts to journey back to the source, but karmic ballast brings it back into incarnation - it's in the working through of karma that light is channeled into that density.

Every soul, makes it to the angelic realms before reincarnation? I assumed a distinction btwn those who find the light and those who do not. Can a soul choose not to reincarnate and journey back to source in that manner? 

In reply to by Mystique


No - not all souls make it into the angellic realm. In previous shifts, plenty have been 'harvested' by Opposing Consciousness. Meaning getting attracted to, and caught by, a false bubble of love and light in the 4th Density. The karmic memory is stripped from them and they're incarnated into synthetic bodies. That's how the greys were created and what they're doing right now to bolster their population. In fact I would go as far as to say that this whole conncocted virus pandemic is designed for that purpose - disconnecting souls from the source, dumbing down DNA (through mandatory vaccination) and then luring souls into a synthetic reality founded on AI and Smart. And that's the 'race against time' so to speak. Can it all be unravelled before that happens?

At this point, there's a clear division, between a broad number (unknowingly) going down the not-so-Smart route and others responding to their soul.

I can't say this is the ONLY way, but my direct observation is that most often, a harvested soul requires another soul to act as a bridge back to the source.

So the said soul would incarnate nearby or along side and resonate their frequency. This would ideally penetrate through their synthetic body (of the grey) until the soul resonates again. The supportive soul creates a bridge back to the source.

It's the same with a synthetic reality - a courageous soul or group of souls would elect to go there, incarnate in some way, and resonate a growing shift of Ascension. That's the way it's been done through history.

Now rereading your comment, Open, it seems also you are stating that although giving up and being pulled through because of attachment are different, the same outcome (obliteration) occurs.

In the quicksand analogy above, could this be akin to a 4th choice, of fighting for (holding on to) attachment? Fittingly, in quicksand, struggling = sinking.


Thanks Reka and Open for your clarification.

I was in process of responding as follows to Reka when I read your post, Open:

So… The Opposite of Ascension = being “dissolved out” “to the other side of the black hole, where yet another (eternally repeating) recreation of a physical reality is.” To me at first, this felt like a description of reincarnation. But it sounds like “dissolved out” is referring to essentially hitting the complete reset button, where there’s no more soul, it’s dissolved into the source, and out of that source a completely new reality unfolds.

The next paragraph sounds like a description of reincarnation as a kind of “middle ground” for those who are still holding onto fear and who do not “let go and dissolve into the Unity Consciousness at passing.” Meaning source and Unity Consciousness are separate concepts in this framework.

So from a linear context, it seems the choices are: 1) Go to the back of the line. (and the line will be completely different) 2) Stay in place. 3) Move forward.

A more precise analogy would be a human caught in quicksand: 1) Give up, sink to the bottom. 2) Freeze, in order to maintain your current density. 3) Relax and transmute yourself to a lower density and let natural buoyancy bring you to the surface.

Both of your descriptions jive with what I've been intuiting. Although I can't say I've passed through a black hole, or have direct experiental knowledge of galactic gates (at this point in time at least.):)


then i too need to rephrase my sharing a bit, the "galactic gates" i thought of are then different from the galactic core itself that you mention dear Open, and have more to do with what i shared with you privately and are in fact innumerable gates of channelling information, light and aspects of beingness between these realities.
its hard for me to express...
love <3


Maybe I used the wrong phrase when I spoke of 'letting go'. Apologies for any confusion. I get the sense it's more a giving up. A sense of its pointless to continue. Which of course as you rightly point out is different from letting go into Ascension.

And I meant this to be separate from being pulled through the galactic core because of attachment (also not to be confused with reincarnation). Perhaps consider the galactic core as a metaphoric 'washing machine'. Matter is drawn in, broken down and blasted out the other side forming a new galaxy. If a soul is attached in a material sense, then the soul can be obliterated too. I have observed this directly and can recall traveling through a black hole.


the way i understood:
..."dissolved out" NOT into ascension, but rather the very opposite: to the other side of the black hole, where yet another (eternally repeating) recreation of a physical reality is.

Souls stuck in fear (pretty much all of us on this website ;) btw), rather than letting go and completely dissolving into Unity Consciousness at passing on are caught in this "wish-woosh pulsation", also known as a process of reincarnation, and are simply spat through and out at the other side of these galactic gates (of which there are myriads - in my humble knowing...)
hope this helps?


I have to say I am not understanding how to reconcile the comment "there's just a complete letting go into the source" with "In my knowing, any souls that pass on which are still attached to the old fear based reality, risk being drawn into this process and dissolved out."

Granted these two phrases are isolated from the larger piece but there feels to be much overall duality there for me. In reading through many articles here it seems that the process of ascension itself is made THROUGH letting go. Yet here it seems to be painted with the brushstroke of annihilation rather than levity.


Yes it's a good and very important question. There's the generalised view that all souls are immortal, but to me that's because there's confusion between absolute and relative. The absolute is immortal of course: pure presence that never disappears. To me, I see each soul as a stream of consciousness flowing from this source. We know that souls reincarnate, but I am also aware of cosmic processes that can actually break down a soul into it's elementals - dissolving back into Unity Consciousness. A black hole does this for example. Sometimes a soul will also 'choose' dissolution when the pain of incarnation becomes too great. There's just a complete letting go into the source.

We're in a process now that's vastly different than before. In that Gaia has processed her karma. This being a 4D field of consciousness which humanity has been a co-creator of (and of course the intervention too). So souls have continued to reincarnate here whilst there's been this platform to explore the karma of control, lack of trust and disconnection from the divine. But now Gaia no longer needs the situation for her own evolution; hence that consciousness is being stripped away and processed through the galactic core. It basically strips the consciousness down and projects it out the other side of the galactic core 'doorway'. Thus it then recreates a new physical reality on the other side of the blackhole.

In my knowing, any souls that pass on which are still attached to the old fear based reality, risk being drawn into this process and dissolved out. I can see many souls going that way - the situation has become too convoluted - a huge bottleneck in the universal flow which has to be resolved out for harmony to be restored.



Thank you Open, you mentioned ...'It is these souls that will become immortal' - Isn't there a general sense that we are all immortal - maybe not? Are the options for human/soul evolvement narrowing? We have seen a lot of time spent in stuckness.....


Yes indeed Reka - couldn't agree more...

    "d.e.n.i.a.l. is still one of the major issues here in present day human consciousness and i reckon if we could understand the deeper psychological and evolutionary reasons behind its automatism, it would hugely support us as a whole."

I think it's very difficult for people to see the magnitude of it. Everyone is so used to living a particular way. They can't see just how out-of-alignment that is. Even driving a car on a road!

I hope our new project Divinicus will help bring it all into perspective.

Thanks for your support

Open <3


the thing is: we (most people) simply don't look...

i suppose one reason is this sped up world which literally stops most of us to stand (even more) still and simply LOOK in the face of what IS. its a huge mechanism of attention manipulation. when we go and grow food, or walk in nature and do simple things one of the most obvious result is our shift in focus. sometimes that is enough in itself...


d.e.n.i.a.l. is still one of the major issues here in present day human consciousness and i reckon if we could understand the deeper psychological and evolutionary reasons behind its automatism, it would hugely support us as a whole.

im afraid my intuition points to several sources, reasons... as a result something has literally dropped from the human psyche that i believe was present earlier and has a lot to do with being motivated to look, to go under, to experience, to sacrifice, etc, many words describe the same process.

but now, to most, our "House of Cards" seems to be the most important thing to sustain... in the name of individualism, being cut off and feeling separated literally stops us wanting to immerse into our experiences (rather with much effort we resist them) and forces us into a modus operandi where the most important issue is the survival of the self (and through this we devour and exterminate our greater connectedness).

accepting our dissolution into a more expanded beingness and for the benefit of the "All That Is" is the significance of the insignificance...

anyway... there is a little song, by Radiohead that i find particularly relevant to what im trying to say - somehow ... please fill in the blanks


The infrastructure will collapse
Voltage spikes
Throw your keys in the bowl
Kiss your husband goodnight

Forget about your house of cards
And I'll do mine
Forget about your house of cards
And I'll do mine

Fall off the table, get swept under

Denial, denial
Denial, denial


That's brilliant Lesley. Awesome - we're blessed to have you a part of the team here *OK*

When people peel back the veils and truly see the magnitude of it, I'm sometimes asked "What's the point of doing anything at all then? - if the world in the physical is ultimately drawing to a close?"

And I answer: "What's the point of doing anything? What's the point of life? What's the point of the soul?" To me, it's all about learning, evolving and growing. And we can be sure of one thing: in the changes that are around us, the opportunities to express the deepest nature of the soul will become boundless. It's the soft shoulder of the system that continues to disempower people.

Some will no doubt give up and cry about it. Some will try to turn away from it and bury heads in disappearing sand. But the warriors of life will see it as an opportunity: they'll turn themselves to face the wave and embrace it, learning as much as they can about themselves as possible. It is these souls that will become immortal.

What is the point? Because I choose to. It defines who I am. No other reason...


How incredible the synthetic reality here has been, keeping people so busy and blinkered.

The list of "ands" is so big. Climate change indicators, acidifying oceans, stronger winds, heavier rains, extreme weather events, melting ice caps..... Human impact: population explosion, deforestation, habitat loss, massive scale rubbish, nuclear contamination still spewing from Fukushima, drilling desperately deeper oil wells, thousands of fracking wells, degraded topsoils, genetically engineered foodstuffs.... The lists just go on and on. It seems like in my lifetime humans have rampaged roughshod over mother earth in ever deeper disconnection, and yet most people are still not reading the writing on the wall. It feels like a mounting frenzy of noise before a shocking quietness.

As for economics, how can highly educated people discuss things like "quantitative easing" - why don't they get real and say "printing money"?

So we can choose to see whats really happening, and re-prioritise our lives, feel the connection to the one-life, take time for the things that matter, drop the things that don't. Live more simply, honour our every blessing, make changes and choices in the best interest of all life on earth, build our local support network, do what we can to provide for ourselves in times of great change that will surely come.

So I'm learning to grow food. Its in the fresh air, connects me with nature, is a constant source of new insights, fills me with the wonder of life, and gives me fresh, organically grown veggies that only travel a few metres to my plate. Its a start, and its what I can do in this moment.

What can you do?
