I love studying the world’s most powerful and richest families. Many people call them, The Illuminati, but I prefer calling them, The Elite. For years, I have wondered what makes them so powerful and rich that they are able to control the masses.
I intuitively knew there are some secrets they know that most of us don’t. I researched these secrets, and I realized three of them after reading Yuval Harari’s book: Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind
Here are they:
- Knowledge is Power
I always doubted the above phrase but I finally agreed with it after realizing that besides capitalism, Europe managed to colonize the late modern world because it invested in knowledge. You can read Yuval Harari’s book to realize how knowledge helped Europe to colonize almost every country in the world.
Anyway, the elite know that knowledge is power, and for this reason, they read and research a lot. They study the human mind and behavior, day and night so that they know how to control us. They spend billions on researching the human brain, psychology, and many other fields. These studies have enabled them to successfully use mind control techniques to control and trick us into doing exactly what they want.
So while you are partying or binge-watching your favourite TV Series, some folks are studying 24/7, and they will manage to rule you in the years to come. For this reason, if you want to join the elite, you must also be knowledgeable. Be a voracious reader. Read about success, human behavior, human psychology, and the universe, and you will gain knowledge that will make you know how to gain riches, lead people, and use the universal laws to your advantage.
- History is The Greatest Teacher
The elite know that history is the greatest teacher, and that’s why they conceal true history and ensure that useless and unnecessary history is provided in schools to mislead us.
They spend millions to uncover historical information that helps them gain more power and riches in the modern world. By studying history, they realize how powerful ancient societies or nations gained power and riches, and they apply their tactics in the modern world. Therefore, the elite learn many things from history that enable them to ascend to their current position.
My desire to learn everything the elite learn from history forced me to study several history books from which I learned very valuable information essential for power, success, and intelligence. For instance, I learned that spirituality and religion are crucial for both individual and societal success as they played a great role in the making of the most powerful ancient leaders and empires. Furthermore, I also learned that a strong willpower is the main characteristic of the most powerful ancient people, societies, and empires.
Lastly, I also learned that ancient human beings were very intelligent because they knew how to connect with their instincts and intuition. Their instincts enabled them to realize medicinal plants though they didn’t have laboratories to test them. These folks used their instincts and intuition to know many things about the human body, the galaxies, and many other things that require us to use complex machines for us to understand how they work.
- We are guided by our belief systems
Our belief systems often guide our actions. In his book, Yuval Harari explains how a modern man will take his wife on an expensive trip because he believes in romantic consumerism. He believes that this trip is the best gift for a woman. However, an Ancient Egyptian man could have built a tomb for his wife as a gift because he believed a tomb is the best gift for a woman.
That being said, it is clear that our belief systems guide our actions. The elite know this truth, and they regularly use it to their advantage. For instance, they instill in us stupid belief systems that enable them to control us. Besides this, they make sure their children adopt belief systems that ensure they take actions that will maintain their riches and power.
The elite also instill in us belief systems that make us buy stuff from their companies. For instance, they make us believe that the happiest individual is the one with the most material possessions. THIS IS BULLSHIT. They use celebrities to reinforce such beliefs, and we end up buying products that we don’t need because these belief systems start guiding our actions
That being said, you can create your own beneficial belief systems that will ensure you take actions that lead you towards success and power
We cannot spend our days complaining that there are a few people out there controlling and exploiting us while we are too lazy to study. These folks deserve their power and riches because ‘power and riches’ is what they look for 24/7. While you are partying and watching useless movies during your free time, these folks are reading, studying us, and looking for more ways to get money and power.
These folks are not SATANIC, their secret is having so much knowledge that enables them to gain riches and put you in their pockets.
Anyway, there are many secrets the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world know that we don’t, and I believe you’ll gain power and riches if you also know these secrets. You are free to add more things you believe the elite know that we don’t. Save us from ignorance, and help us awaken

5 Powerful Benefits of Constantly Reminding Yourself That Anyone’s Death is Around the Corner
Many Great Thinkers reveal that the best way to enjoy every moment of your life is to remind yourself that you might die anytime.
I used to think this advice was stupid until I lost my beloved best friend: Fred Jesse. Through his death, I realized that death is real and it can happen anytime. Fred didn’t know he will die. We had a drink the last time we met, and he was sure that we’ll meet again. It never occurred to both of us that his death was around the corner.
Fred died a few months later on a grizzly road accident. He was the first closest person I lost. When I heard the news of his death, it was hard to believe because I never thought that Fred might die anytime soon.
His death made me realize that no one knows when they will die because we can die at any moment.
Fred’s death made me to constantly think about my mortality, and I realized the following benefits of becoming aware that you, your friends or relatives might die at any moment.
- You Won’t Care about Other People’s Opinions
Will you care about other people’s thoughts if you know that you’ll be dead in a few weeks? I guess no. No matter how good or bad people think or talk about you, their opinions and thoughts won’t matter if you realize that you are going to die.
Furthermore, will you care about someone’s opinion about you if you realize that the person might die anytime soon? What if you worry about what a certain person thinks about you, and then s/he dies a week later. Will it be wrong to say that all your worry was time and energy wasted?
With this in mind, it is true that being aware of our impending deaths enables us to stop caring about people’s thoughts or opinions because they won’t matter when we die.
- You will Live in the Present Moment
Thinking about my death made me teach myself how to live in the present moment and stop worrying about a future which might never come. I realized that all I have is the present moment, and therefore, I must stop being anxious about an unguaranteed future. It also dawned on me that all of us could enjoy every moment if we realized that it might be the last.
‘Every moment is a once in a lifetime moment. And maybe it’s the last. Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock.’ – Jonas Salzebeger
- You will Ensure That You Maintain Good Relationships with Your Closest Friends and Relatives
Realizing that, you, your friends or relatives might die at any moment will force you to maintain a good relationship with them because you won’t want your loved ones to die with unsolved issues between you and them. For this reason, knowing that death is unpredictable will make you to always ensure that you are at peace with everyone you love.
We refuse to solve issues with our friends/relatives because we think they’ll live forever. We fail to realize that we might never get a chance to forgive them or ask them for forgiveness because death might grab any one of us anytime.
- You Will Quit Postponing
When you become death-conscious, you will quit postponing important things because you will realize that you might fail to live the next day to do these things.
You will stop postponing the day you’ll start traveling around the world, when you’ll send flowers to your parents, when you’ll build a business to sustain your kids when you die, when you’ll start doing what you love, when you’ll start saving money for your loved ones, and many other important things you always want to do but often postpone.
- You Will be Thankful
Death consciousness makes you thankful because you realize that life is precious and not everyone manages to live as long as you, your friends and relatives have lived.
When I think about death I always remember that most of my best friends are orphans. Therefore, I become thankful for the fact that my parents are still alive. Thinking about death also makes me thankful for the fact that my friends and sisters are alive because not everybody has all their family members/friends alive.
Do you remember the woman who lost her entire family in a car accident in 2016? I guess either all or some of your family members are alive. Therefore, stop fretting about trivial issues and be thankful you still have a chance to experience the physical universe with them. At least you have a shoulder to cry on. Some people don’t have.
We always think we are immortal and for this reason, we take our precious lives and those of our friends or relatives for granted. We never appreciate their presence because we think they’ll live forever. Besides this, we love worrying about the future without thinking that we might fail to exist in it because life is short and death is unpredictable.
We don’t realize that we only have one chance to experience the beauty of the physical universe, and that life is too short to hold grudges, to worry, to postpone, to hate, to care about people’s opinions, and to do what we hate.
‘When we realize the shortness of life, we begin to see the importance of making every moment count.’ – Dillion Burroughs: American Author.

Reclaim Your Mind
Recently, after watching the hottest TV show – Power, it dawned on me that I started thinking like the main character – Ghost. I thought violent thoughts, and I wished I had a ‘bad’ girl as my spouse. This phenomenon made me realize that most of our thoughts are not ours because our thinking is mostly shaped by what we watch, the people we associate with, the books we read, and the songs we listen to.
It is true that if you want to control people, you have to control their minds because the mind influences our actions. The elite know this principle, and for this reason, they constantly pump negativity into our minds through movies, songs, and the News hence making us to constantly dwell on negative thoughts and emotions.
Anyway, the way we think has also been shaped by the society. We often think like our friends, neighbors, and close relatives because thoughts are infectious. This similarity in thinking often makes us take similar actions. For instance, most of us buy trendy stuff because a large percentage of people think that a person’s stuff determines his or her social status.
With this in mind, it is clear that most of the decisions you make aren’t yours because you make them based on thoughts which are influenced by the media and society. This understanding made me realize that even our shopping decisions are not ours as they are determined by advertisements. Why do you prefer Coca-Cola to Pepsi? Is it because Coca-Cola is better, or is it because you have watched too many Coca-Cola advertisements that made you believe Coca-Cola is the best drink?
We usually think we are free, but we are on autopilot because we are thinking exactly the way the elite want us to think. If you want to notice how your mind is on autopilot, try meditating. While meditating you’ll also realize that you often attract the opposite of what you want because your mind always thinks about the things you don’t want.
If you want to think thoughts and take actions that align with what you truly want, you must gain dominion over your mind. You must determine what you think because your thoughts eventually affect your decisions and actions. You must reclaim your mind and restore it to its true nature.
The true nature of the mind is to dwell in the present, to think about the future only when necessary, and to think about the past as a guide for the actions to take in the present moment. The mind was not meant to dwell on worry, anxiety, and doubts because it was primarily meant to help us achieve what we want through creativity and positive thinking.
Therefore, reclaim your mind because doing so will enable you to think in accordance with your goals hence making it easy for you to achieve them. Besides this, you will be able to stop your mind from doubting or fearing when you want to make risky decisions.
Instead of being a powerful asset as it was meant to be, the mind has become the greatest impediment to our success. It discourages us instead of encouraging us when we want to take risky actions that will massively change our lives. It makes us doubt and fear even when we want to make positive changes.
Therefore, we must control it and make it our slave because it’s the most powerful asset we have. It can release magnetic forces that enable us to attract our deepest desires, and it can affect our inner peace and happiness levels.
With this in mind, you must reclaim your mind and make it work for you, and not against you, and for other people. You reclaim it by practicing observing your thoughts, discouraging poor thoughts and encouraging thoughts that will help you make good decisions and take the right actions that will lead you to the life you want. Also, you can reclaim your mind by practicing meditation because it helps you control your thoughts. Lastly, you must read and watch personal development books and videos to make your mind to only think thoughts that will make you grow to your full potential.
‘Reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that’s being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.’ – Terence McKenna, American Ethnobotanist & Mystic.
