In the beginning my grandfather would chant his stories in a simple format that a five year old could understand. That’s a good thing because I was about five at the time. The one single subject that would always be the same was about how the establishment first demoralized its citizens followed by the demoralization of the nation. He was referring to his experiences in Poland in the late thirties to very early forties. So I’m now asking all of you has anything really changed look at what’s currently taking place.
I was recently thinking about some of the stories my grandfather used to tell me long ago. He used to sit next to me and his stories always began in the same manor. Barry… he would say I want to tell you about your uncle so and so or your aunt so and so and why they’re not here and why we can’t even visit them. Other stories he used to tell me started much the same way but would instead begin with the heading of my sisters, brothers, mother or father.
When I got old enough to ask some intelligent questions about WHY it all came to be the answers were… let’s just say it’s been over forty years and I still remember every one of them. I would ask why did the people act this way and allow this to happen. He would answer Barry it happened so slowly and over such a long period of time most were never even aware something was even happening. My grandfather wasn’t the type to retain any grudges. He was vibrating on a substantially higher frequency than most. He continued answering… by the time people caught on they no longer had any choices left to make. By that time it was obey or be killed. Coming from the higher realm of frequencies he understood this. Is any of this starting to sound familiar yet?
He went on to explain in detail that these were all good people and not evil scoundrels. These were all neighborhood family people that we knew for a long time. Many who ate dinner with us even on the Friday Sabbath. It didn’t matter if they weren’t the same religion… they were all neighbors many like family. He would continue stating we ate together, sang songs together, the men would have a vodka or two while discussing many different subjects. The ladies would be busy in the kitchen having a great time together while enjoying a glass of wine (or two if you get what I mean). It was all very Heymish that’s the term I remember him using when trying to describe the gatherings and in fact the whole feeling of the neighborhood.
Heymish is a Yiddish word that means a warm and comfortable feeling or atmosphere. In Poland many of the people spoke Yiddish which is actually a language that’s comprised of several other languages. It’s a blend of German, Hebrew, Polish, Rumanian and various others. Then the subjects began to change. I hope by now the light bulb is starting to at least flicker a bit.
It was heymish he always used to say to me. Many of the children played together every day… they studied together went to school gatherings and even had arranged a pick up schedule with each of the other families after school. It was a close knit community located in Poland. A community of good folks helping each other at all times. So what happened? Several of you are witnessing a reoccurring of the same dark pattern of history unfolding right now. Yet most are still not even aware of what’s taking place all around them. For the majority it’s difficult to round the corner when they’re traveling in circles.
My grandfather, in fact the entire community started taking notice of several foreboding habits beginning to form. The children were starting to change. They started to form groups individual thinking was now frowned upon. I guess it was his way of describing that the indoctrination of the youth was taking place. Education began to resemble regurgitation of misled information instead of history science and math. The youth developed a sense of entitlement rather than an attitude promoting hard work to achieve the desired results. Most called it being spoiled but my grandfather never agreed and felt something far deeper was playing out. Casually occurring over time… that was just one more subject that seemed to get buried with the rest and became unmentionable soon after.
Soon enough most of the others seemed to adapt to this entitlement attitude that the Government is responsible for everyone’s well being. Not long after he started to notice something very strange taking place. The shift had occurred and now if you disagreed with any of these philosophies you started being viewed as disloyal to the nation instead of a friend with a different viewpoint.
That’s when he decided to pull back and soon made what was the best decision of his life. He along with my grandmother kicking and screaming I don’t want to go, boarded a ship and ended up in Montreal Canada. She didn’t have the vision he did and that was the only time in their 60 year marriage that he threatened to leave her behind if she wasn’t going with him.
Meanwhile the rest of the family had other notions of what was occurring. Their opinions ranged from you’re crazy to wow are you over reacting. Even after the situation continued to deteriorate people’s rights we’re now being violated rapidly no longer was it just one at a time… still the balance of the family’s views were nothing short of close minded and narrow in nature.
I recollect him clearly mentioning that the answers from his relatives would always be the same. He would hear the same excuses time and time again. Two examples that are burned in my mine are “it’s just the economy or their all good people we’ve known for decades”. Some others I recall hearing all too often we’re “it’s only a different way of viewing the situation things will get better… its fine… and the best one of all you worry too much”.
By that time my grandfather knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that most of the nation was already demoralized and the citizens not yet even aware of it. If this isn’t sinking in by now it’s cool. Every revolution needs its statistics. I have the right to say this because my family lost over 150 parents, brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles who decided to stay in Poland along with their great family like neighbors so please spare me the “this can’t happen here crap”. For my family it already did happen and was implemented by a nation that at the time was viewed as being ahead of its time in areas that included culture, science, math, music and medicine just to name a few.
So if you’re noticing that your nation along with its people no longer seem to have that HEYMISH feeling that it once possessed what’s keeping you from exploring other options… better options. Don’t kid yourself and keep using excuses like the kids or the wife… as those are the most important reasons for not delaying a single second longer. Terrorism: The act of terrorizing; use of force or threats to demoralize, intimidate, and subjugate, especially such used as a political weapon or policy. Think about it as it’s happening right before your very closed eyes.
I’ve just returned back from ten days of filming so hang on folks. We’re going to be releasing some great new videos starting in as little as three weeks. I know you’ll love them and learn a lot from them. By far the best videos we’ve ever done. Glad to be back with you until next time this is Barry in DR.
