BOOK REVIEW: Human Race Get Off Your Knees: The Lion Sleeps No More by David Icke  (David Icke Books) 2010

Reptilians. Moon matrixes. Holograms. Evil bloodlines. It must be David Icke, right? You would be correct.

Since 1990, esoteric British author David Icke has been sharing his thoughts and findings regarding the nature of our reality and existence to growing legions of fans eager to hear his message that all is not as it seems, at least in this illusory “existence.”

Icke, a former English footballer, sports analyst and Green Party spokesman, now holds popular lectures around the world sharing his findings on the true nature of everything and how “those in the shadows” are very effective at manipulating humanity via their secret society networks that control media, politics and many aspects of society.

Sure, Icke has been ridiculed, particularly in the early 1990’s when he publicly revealed his thoughts on controlling Reptilians and so forth. Oh, he’s “New Agey” and “out there” and not grounded in “reality.” But since then, his books have become exceedingly popular and former skeptics of his work are now avid supporters of what he has uncovered.

Having read his work, watched his videos and listened to his interviews with great interest, I finally decided – after talking to a friend who was in the midst of reading it as well - to tackle one of his thick tomes from cover-to-cover, more than 650 pages worth, this one Human Race Get Off Your Knees: The Lion Sleeps No More.

And with this new book, Icke seems as brave and courageous as ever as he shares his ideas, beliefs and concepts with readers.

Starting off on a chapter titled “I Am Not David Icke,” he drives the point home that human beings are not, say, “David Icke” or “Andrew Griffin.” Rather, as he writes, “We are not our bodies, nor even our mind. These are vehicles that allow us to experience the virtual-reality universe, a fantastically advanced version of the Internet in many way, as we shall see.”

Indeed, we do “see” – or at least this reader certainly “saw” more than I expected when I first cracked open this gigantic book, simply brimming with amazing and sometimes shocking … ideas.

“The real ‘I’ – Consciousness – has no form in its eternal, infinite state. It is just awareness,” writes Icke. “The interface employed by Consciousness is the computer system that we call the human mind and body.”

And this is just chapter one. As we go on we learn that because humanity is so focused on one part of their experience – via Mind – we don’t get the whole picture, as it were. And there are evil bloodlines - Rockefellers, Rothschilds, etc. -  that seeks to keep humanity in the dark, but Icke, via this book, is hoping to help awaken humanity to their true potential as Infinite Consciousness.

And what of the elusive Reptilians we hear so much about in relation to Icke’s work? Yes, I admit this “reptilian” issue was a big stumbling block for this researcher, but Icke is fairly convincing – albeit confusing and hard to accept at times. But isn't that the point? Icke shows just how blinded we are by the reptilian brain and repeats how we are capable of so much more that is positive and good.

Basically, the Reptilians – from the constellations Draco and Orion - are here and “operate beyond visible light” and possess the bloodline families running everything. They feed on our “energy” and we are their “sustenance.” Sound bizarre? I thought you’d think that. These evil creatures, Icke explains, feed on “low-vibration emotions and mental states like fear, hate, anger, stress, worry and depression.” Children are often targeted and sacrificed in secret rituals. He goes into great detail about their origins, their ways of traveling, manipulating humans and their link to “aliens,” “abductions” and how humans have recorded their existence for thousands of years.

Equally fascinating concerns Icke’s writing on the Moon. He claims that he has discovered that the Moon “is the key to undertstanding how humanity and life on Earth has been, and is being, manipulated by a hidden force. It is the center of Reptilian operations and their spacecraft are constantly to-ing and fro-ing between the Moon and underground facilities and bases on Earth,” he writes. “The Moon is not just a ‘physical’ phenomenon; it is a technologically-generated interdimensional portal that allows Fourth Density Reptilians and other entities and energies to enter Third Density (our) reality.”

He explains all the strange things – scientifically speaking – about the Moon. Why it shouldn’t even be there and how it appears to be made of different substances from it Earthly neighbor. Basically, he says, it shouldn’t be there.

Icke gives readers a history lesson on ancient Babylon/Sumeria and how there was once a “Golden Age.” He references a Zulu shaman who he considers a close friend, the same man who has helped Icke understand some of the newer insights he now shares.

Regarding religion, Icke said that the controllers behind the scenes use the world religions to further control and manipulate the masses while keeping them ignorant of the knowledge they have about our true origins and our true nature as Infintite Consciousness. Keeping people in a prison of the mind helps them gain ever more control over us – making us slaves without many of us ever really realizing it.

Quoting the writer and thinker Aldous Huxley, Icke writes: “Liberty? Why it doesn’t exist. There is no liberty in this world, just gilded cages.”

Yes, things look pretty gloomy for humanity, particularly as Icke makes it clear that the power-hungry Global Dictatorship that is being established seeks to enslave us all in their matrix of evil. The financial crash, the endless wars, the poisoning of food and water through fluoride and chemicals, the endless chemtrailing, and the overall dumbing-down of society.

And while things look grim, Icke, ever positive about humanity and our ultimate destiny, ends things on a positive note, reminding readers that when people put what is right above “what’s in it for me?” then we can begin to regain our true nature.

“When we realize we are all One – and act upon that with courage, love, kindness, peace and empathy for all who need support – the walls of oppression must fall,” writes Icke.

Many people may not feel they are ready for a book like Human Race Get Off Your Knees. It took a friend to get me to sit down and finally read an Icke book. I’m glad I did. I can’t say I believe all of it but I do know he is pointing out things going on in our sick, sad world that are of grave concern to me and growing numbers of others. The media manipulation, the constant lies, the hatred and war … one begins to wonder if this isn’t all being orchestrated behind the scenes somehow. If anything, David Icke has tapped into something remarkable – the fact that human beings really haven’t been able to fathom and understand how powerful they are when they aren’t trapped in the mind matrix, and realize that Consciousness is where it’s at and where it always has been.

Icke’s next book is coming out in the coming year and is said to be titled Remember Who You Are.

As Icke often tells his readers and audiences: “You are consciousness – all powerful and all that will be and will ever be.”
