Over the last six months I have had various people ask me about David Icke. They want to know if I have heard of him before and what I think of him. I personally really like what he stands for, although his message is nothing new. His main message is: life as we know it is an illusion. This I already learned from studying Vedanta (more specifically Advaita Vedanta) thirteen years ago. There are also other authors and lecturers that had a similar message to Icke (or is it the other way around?) over 60+ years ago. Great minds like Aldous Huxley and Eric Fromm, as well as many others have made the same points. (Interesting though that Aldous Huxley and Eric Fromm studied Vedanta as well.)
The three main points I’ve seen David Icke present are:
1) Wake up to your illusion. You are not the body. Your life is a superimposition.
2) Acknowledge that we are living in a Orwellian state. And it is your responsibility to take your power back and be responsible for creating your life.
3) Realize that you are unlimited consciousness. Begin to choose freedom for yourself. In order to do this you must come from a place of oneness and love.
I can truly say that I am thankful for David Icke. He brings a clear message to many people. (The reptilian part of his message can get a bit blurry, but I’ll stick to the overall message. I encourage people to not focus on what sounds too out-there (bizarre), verses taking responsibility for the other 90+ percent of what he says.) David Icke’s overall message is timeless (because it has been.) Today is no different from 60 years ago or 600 years ago in many respects. People are suffering now and they were suffering then, all unnecessarily.
In this blog post I will list a few quotes from David Icke, Aldous Huxley and Eric Fromm.
So again, I am grateful for David Icke and his work. I’m glad that he and we as a people continue to share this information. It can instantly end a lot of hurt, fear and unanswered questions. We truly are powerful, we truly are infinite, we truly are loved — but the daily experience of that is completely up to us.
