9/11 Ten Years On: An Optimistic
As we arrive at the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, it's a
good time to reflect on all that has happened in our world in
the last 10 years. 9/11 served as a huge wake up call
for millions of people around the world. I have
personally been in contact with many dozens of influential
people who told me that 9/11 is what awakened them to deeper
realities and shifted their life work to focus more on building
a better world. 9/11 also inspired me personally to become
active on the Internet and develop
as a way to make a bigger difference in our world.
Literally thousands of people in positions of power around the
world were called to action by what happened on 9/11.
commercial and military pilots, for instance, knew on the
day of 9/11 that it was impossible for alleged hijacker pilot
Hani Hanjour, who had very limited flight experience and poor
flying skills, to execute a 330 degree turn with a large
commercial airliner in under four minutes to make a precision
hit on the Pentagon (click
here for more information on this).
senior military and government officials not only in the
U.S., but around the world, also knew that it was virtually
impossible for the Pentagon's powerful defenses to be defeated
when the U.S. military had already been on high alert after two
planes hit the World Trade Center towers. Sadly, many of these
leaders have kept their suspicions quiet, particularly as it has
proven to be
political suicide to question the official government story
9/11 also served as a huge awakening to me personally.
At the time, I had
worked as a language interpreter with top U.S. generals who
bragged about being able to have fighter jets on any errant
plane anywhere in the country in 10 minutes or less. So the
moment it was announced on the morning of 9/11 that a plane had
hit the Pentagon, I suspected that, at the very least, this
tragic act was allowed to happen. And like many others, I
question to this day why the Pentagon has refused to release all
but a few of the many dozens of videotapes of the Pentagon
strike that are known to exist, especially as none of those
released show anything conclusive about what hit the Pentagon.
After 9/11, millions of people with open minds began to explore
what really happened on 9/11. Thanks to excellent websites like
WantToKnow.info, these caring individuals were able to find
reliable, verifiable information which showed them a level of
manipulation far beyond what they had previously known. And many
who work in the field of intelligence, which once depended
heavily on carefully fostered personal connections for gathering
secret information, have made good use of the Internet to
discover how they were being used not for the good of the
public, but rather for the benefit of a wealthy elite who pull
the strings of global politics behind the scenes.
At least two key individuals were awakened to the deeper
realities of 9/11 by WantToKnow. In personal
communications, Dr. David Ray Griffin informed me that he
first had his eyes opened to the 9/11 cover-up in early 2003
two-page 9/11 summary there. Dr. Griffin is a renowned
theologian who has now become the most respected spokesperson
for the 9/11 movement. In the 10 years since that fateful day,
he has authored or edited
more than a dozen scholarly books which explore the deeper
realities of 9/11 and global politics.
Architect Richard Gage, in turn, learned of the 9/11 cover-up
through the work of Dr. Griffin. Mr. Gage has gone on to become
the most visible scientific voice of the 9/11 movement. He
founded and heads up
and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, which now has over 1,500
architects and engineers who have signed a petition demanding a
new, independent investigation of the collapse of the three
World Trade Center buildings on 9/11 (click

So the work of WantToKnow.info has played a key role in the
awakening of these two major figures in the 9/11 movement and
many, many others. Our website has now received over 7.5 million
visits, and our
email list has nearly 10,000 subscribers from more than 120
countries. We've received many hundreds of
messages from supporters who are most grateful for our work.
The mainstream media post 9/11 sadly continues to focus largely
on spreading fear and sensationalism. The corporate owners of
the media have been quite successful in keeping key information
on 9/11 and other critically important issues from
getting the headlines they deserve.
Yet the good
news is that the corporate-owned major media is rapidly losing
credibility as the public increasingly looks for quality,
unfiltered information on the Internet.
Though there is a lot of trash and baseless speculation on many
Internet websites, those with a discerning eye are able to find
reliable information from verifiable sources as they begin to
unravel the mystery of 9/11 and of all that goes on in our
world. Some like myself also open to inner spiritual guidance as
they put the pieces of the puzzle together.
What I have learned in my research over the years since
9/11 is that there are many factions within the
power elite of our world. And thanks to the after effects of
9/11, these factions are now fighting against each other more
than ever. Those factions which are most focused on
dominating and even destroying our world are gradually being
shut down and marginalized. A few of their members are even
waking up and now beginning to work for the good of all
This is not to say that there aren't still some crazy things
being pulled off. There are, but I believe the chances of a
major event of the scale of 9/11 happening again are very slim.
Thanks to both the wake-up call of 9/11 and the rapid
availability of reliable, verifiable information on the
Internet, I suspect there are too many good people in high
places now who are aware of the deeper, hidden political agendas
to allow for the coordination of a complex event like 9/11 to
One of the biggest cover-ups besides 9/11 that I've come across
is also drawing increasing attention, even in the major media.
We're seeing an ever increasing amount of good coverage on the
UFO cover-up in the news. You can see the abundance of excellent
major media articles on this most fascinating topic at
this link. And the History Channel has just come out with an
amazingly well done documentary on this fascinating topic, which
you can watch at
I personally believe that advanced ET species, likely
millions of years ahead of humanity in both their technological
and spiritual development, are carefully monitoring us.
They have developed scientific and spiritual principles that go
far beyond our current understanding of reality and are thus
able to travel much faster than the speed of light by shifting
into other dimensions.
prime directive in Star Trek, these highly evolved
beings only intervene when absolutely necessary and with minimal
impact to keep us from destroying our planet.
inspiring essay I've written which dives deep into this topic,
In addition, I have received information that there are growing
numbers of military and government intelligence officers around
the world who are working to stop the craziness and expose the
many manipulations being carried out by the global power elite.
A few years ago, I learned about an intelligence
organization called "The Library" which plays an active role in
blocking key destructive plans of the power elite.
Working quietly behind the scenes, this unusual group of
intelligence professionals has both leaked key documents at
crucial moments, and carried out small, but effective activities
which prevented major destructive plans of the power-hungry
factions of the global elite from being implemented. For more
fascinating information on this,
In the old paradigm, global politics operated based largely on
hierarchical structures which placed a small number of chosen
people and groups at the top of the hierarchy. For many
centuries, the common folk willingly surrendered their power to
those above them in the political and military hierarchies in
exchange for safety and protection.
Yet many individuals and groups in the top rungs of this global
hierarchy secretly used the power given them for personal profit
and gain. For thousands of years, selfish factions of the power
elite have controlled the general population by promoting fear,
secrecy, and polarization, and through distracting people from
their deeper purpose in life. This is what has led to much of
the craziness in the world even today. For more on this,
In the new paradigm which is rapidly manifesting all
around us, ever increasing numbers of people are realizing that
it's time to stop looking up to the higher ranks of the
hierarchy for protection and guidance, and to instead look
around at our fellow humans and look inside ourselves in our
quest for a better world. We are increasingly less
dependent on hierarchical leadership from the top, and are
trusting more our own inner resources as we work cooperatively
with many others who are now dedicated to ushering in this new
We are realizing that it's time to let go of the old polarizing
us vs. them paradigm and start working together for a new
paradigm which supports
the good of all on our planet. We are embracing the
understanding that each of us has unlimited power within, and
that we are all interconnected. And the Internet is making it
easier for us to connect and even to come together in person to
promote ever more love and understanding in our world. It's
really an exciting time to be alive!
I'm not at all saying that everything is going to be nice and
easy in the years ahead of us. I suspect that as we give
birth to the new paradigm, the world will experience birth
pains, particularly as the old hierarchical power structures of
this world begin to crumble. How much pain is
experienced will likely be a matter of how fast and how hard
this collapse happens.
I'm very hopeful that the collapse of the old paradigm
structures will be relatively slow, which I believe would make
it easier on all of us. This would more easily allow the grass
roots, new paradigm networks rapidly growing around the world to
catch the pieces as the old hierarchy falls apart and the new
paradigm takes its place. Once an ever increasing number of
people see the need for this change, I suspect we will all join
in co-creating a new way of life that is much healthier and more
cooperative than ever before. For more on this,
In a way, 9/11 was like a planetary
near-death experience. The reverberations of this incredible
act of destruction faced us all with death in a very real way
that caused many millions of people to deeply re-evaluate their
lives and look at what really matters in our world. As a result,
many chose to take a new direction much more focused on serving
the greater good of all humanity and making a difference in the
world. It was the kick in the butt that many of us needed to get
our lives back on track to focus on our own personal growth and
on ushering in a new paradigm for our world.
I acknowledge that I am an eternal optimist. I can't help it as
my life – though not without its challenges – has been
incredibly rich, meaningful, and fulfilling. I am willing to
look deep into the shadows both
within myself and
out in the
world, knowing that only by facing my fears and the fears of
our world can I transform them. And I'm having a great time
playing my role in this transformation.
I have a number of friends and colleagues who feel that
we are in for some major doom and gloom, but what I know is that
each of us creates our reality much more than we might think.
Our beliefs have a huge impact on our experience of life.
When we choose to see even great challenges as opportunities for
growth, life becomes an exciting adventure. And when we take
full responsibility for how we interpret everything that happens
to us, we become fully engaged in life and can more actively
join in co-creating a better world for us all. For more on this,
Thank you for your interest in this magnificent work to
transform our world. As we remember the lessons of 9/11 and
invite those around us to understand the deeper reasons behind
this landmark event and more, I have no doubt that we are making
a difference in this world.
I know that every one of us who makes even a small
effort to build a better world makes a difference. And the more
we support each other in being the change we want to see, the
more beautiful and glorious this world we live in becomes.
Thank you so much for playing your part, and I wish you a most
beautiful journey through these exciting times. Take care.
With warmest wishes for a rich and fulfilling life,
