On Monday, a clear case of how the mind avoids the Now arose in Arizona. Melody Jennings, the founder of the Clean Elections USA group which has tasked itself with intimidating “mules” — a term coined in the film 2000 Mules referring to people thought to have been “harvesting” or “trafficking” ballots illegally to smuggle fraudulent votes for Joe Biden — posted numerous calls to action on Truth Social, such as:
“This guy,” Jennings wrote. “Drove in backwards to avoid plate detection. Got out showing his back. Pulled ballots out of his shirt. I need people there tonight to help my people. Lots of you! 75 ft away from box, post up opposite so we see both sides. Someone get tags. No talking to them. Do NOT GO INSIDE 75 ft! They are trying to get us to engage them. Do not do it!” She included an address below her post that matches that of the drop box in Mesa.
It is unclear if her group was responsible for voter intimidation incidents that took place in Mesa, which were reported to the local authorities.
While Jennings defended her CEUSA group via appearances on Bannon’s show and with continued postings of photos of apparent drop-box surveillance efforts seeking peace of mind in the results of the current Arizona election results, her efforts exemplify what a mind caught in the loss of Now goes through.
Her lack of happiness with the past or current elections is not the problem. The person involved in voter intimidation being a member of her group or not is not the problem. Loss of Now is the problem. That is, for her to find happiness in life she faces the issue of constantly living in the past and living in the future, instead of stopping to enjoy her life now. When this happens it can turn “a mere situation, event, or emotion into a personal problem and into suffering”.
This is the “normal” unconscious state most people experience life in.
The suffering escalates into deep unconsciousness when the person’s ego feels threatened. As its main function is in survival mode, when unchecked the ego — a sort of “Siri” on steroids — can make a body feel intense negativity as anger, acute fear and aggression.
“We have folks that are approaching our elections workers as they go into the site; they’re taking pictures of them,” stated the chair of the county’s board of supervisors, Bill Gates (R), at a meeting Wednesday. “They’re harassing people. They’re not helping further the interests of democracy.”
As other CEUSA followers or fans of the movie “2000 Mules”, including ex-President Trump, who re-posted one of Jenning’s CTA’s, continue to encourage their minds to live in the state of deep unconsciousness, they not only linger in their suffering but they threaten to pull others into that state.
