Robert F Brost, YES! YES! YES! There is no PERHAPS here! We are more powerful than we think. You would be absolutely flabbergasted and even overwhelmed if you were allowed to feel/see/sense how big your soul (that is, your true self) is. So we can shoot a saucer down with our intent, or kick a f...ck...g reptilian out of our house.
Everything has to do with our belief systems.
And what hold us prisoners here is our belief systems. And whoever control our belief systems control us. So take a wild guess about who control our belief systems. You probably know them already but for those who don't here is a hint. The controllers are those who want to pacify us by asking us "to show the other cheek" so that we can take more abuse from them without any resistance.
Courtney knows them too but he cannot just put that information out there. If he did the information would fry the nervous system of some good earthlings, and quite a few would go crazy. Hence, his pearls where he is providing some information about our true nature and the true nature of reality, in a non-threating way, one teaspoonful at a time.
For instance, as you said, Courtney's pearls lead us to idea of "the non-local nature of reality, i.e. we can all connect with one another". This means that separation does not exist, and that is the key aspect of our true nature.
So, I most definitely agree with you that Farsight is trying to nudge us into waking up, so that we can break out of earth prison. I'm going to pay more attention to these pearls.
