Open Letter to Tony Robbins 

Dear Tony, 

During the past week, something unpleasantly strange and highly unusual happened on your Tony Robbins YouTube channel. 

In this open letter, I’ll tell you what happened, why it upset me so much, and – most importantly — the reasons why not only you but your followers really need to know about it. 

It started on Monday, August 1st, when I watched your interview with Ray Dalio on the Changing World Order, how countries rise and fall, and what the cycles of history can teach us now. The description box included your words,  

“Power comes to those that can recognize patterns.” 

Now, I’ve been saying exactly this for a very long time. The subject is dear to my heart. Naturally, I immediately wanted to know your point of view. 

As I listened, I was on fire. I paused to enter one, two, three, four and then five comments.  

Next began a sequence of events. First, all but one of the five comments disappeared. Then, a message with your name on it, in your channel, was pinned to my one remaining comment. 

 In a nutshell, (though it took a day to recognize it), a punitive hacker with ulterior motives is policing your channel.  

The pinned reply with your name – Tony Robbins – gave a phone number for me to call.  

What appeared in my email looked like this: Pinned Tony Robbin十l{7O7}86IO5l4 replied to Pat West’s comment.   

Pinned Tony Robbin十l{7O7}86IO5l4  

msg me directly,⤴️ 

My first response was to be Thrilled!!! 

OMG. Tony Robbins is interested in my comments. He wants to know more!!! This is a dream come true, and with perfect timing.  

Naturally, I quickly responded to what I naively believed was an invitation from Tony himself. The texted conversation, still in my phone, looks like this: 

(Monday, August 1.  7:49 p.m.) 

Me: Hello Tony. This is Pat West. I’m responding to your pinned message. What would you like to speak about? 

X: Hello Pat, nice to have you here. 

Me: Likewise 

X: Before that I’d like to know how long you have been following my channel? 

Me: You’ve been a major influence for many years. My website was based on reading your Giants within. Have been following you ever sense.  

X: Let’s text on my business signal messenger. I have alot I’d like to share with you. You can download signal messenger it’s a private messenger That’s my business line (817) 385-7454. Let me know when you do. 

That’s when things turned south. There was no such app on my phone. I dropped my plans for the next day, intent on getting that app and continuing the conversation. I emailed a friend, explaining the “opportunity” and asking for her help: 

Hi Terry, A most wonderful and amazing opportunity has knocked on my humble door. But it would sure help if you have the time to be of assistance. 

I just remembered the quote I used to conclude a book I wrote. Turns out to be very true: “You can rest assured that if you devote your time and attention to the highest advantage of others, the Universe will support you, always and only in the nick of time.” R. Buckminster Fuller   . . . . And it really is just in the nick. 
 

. . . tonight — which happens to be the exact date of the most powerful energy in 2,300 years — [Tony] pinned an answer to my comment saying to text him. We had a brief exchange. He seemed to like my responses and wants me to continue the conversation in a message app that I do NOT have on my phone and don’t know how to install. 
 

I didn’t hear from her right away. Impatient, I called Quintin, the tech I work with at the Computer Doctors. He wasn’t available. The next morning, not to be defeated, I took a cab to U.S. Cellular. The agent there was helpful, but dubious. Some message apps mess phones up, he warned.  

When I finally heard from Quintin, he showered cold water on my hopes. He sees this kind of scam frequently. It set off all his alarm bells. 

So, once inside the app, I challenged the pseudo-Tony. “Are you for real? I’ve been warned this is a scam. Give me something of substance, or I will delete the app.” 

Silence. App deleted. 

I went from soaring with hope and joy to crashing in embarrassment, disappointment and bewilderment. Why? Why? 

How and WHY would someone hack the Tony Robbins channel? Why would anyone go to the trouble of deleting my comments? Why would an imposter represent himself as Tony and pin a reply to my comment? And why, oh why, would anyone, playing on my dearest hope of connecting with Tony, lure me into loading an app apparently designed to mess up my phone? 

Where’s the method in apparent madness? It took me a while to calm down and sort it out.  

No doubt, it had to do with the substance of my comments.  

Fortunately, I saved them. The one allowed to stand, apparently the one regarded as least offensive, was this: 

The venerable, Chinese I Ching, the Book of Change, has mapped the patterns of Natural Law that influence cycles of human life, organizations and civilizations for thousands of years. This scratches the mere surface of what sages have known for eons. Why not return to the basics? 

[BTW. Had it been the real Tony, I would have pointed out that the not-coincidental pun on his wife’s name, SAGE, makes her the ideal person to try out and report back to him on the validity and benefits associated with this ancient, tried and true, universal method of decision-making – the book accurately described The Ultimate Personal Survival Guide.] 

 

Here’s one of the deleted comments: 

Astrologers have much to say about historical and economic changes. We’ve reached a critical point that’s now occurring for the first time in 2,300 years, the time of Alexander the Great.  See  rethinkingsurvival.com/2022/07/16/heads-up/   

Another was this: 

Tony, you’re asking the right questions of the wrong person. Correctly seen, paradigm shifts are not about 10-year economic trends, but about major shifts in belief systems. Martin Luther, for example. Or Christ. 

As for the China issue, in the future, we must persuade them to return to their roots, their heritage in the I Ching, and a world view where everyone everywhere shares a divine center in common. I will have to write you a post on this. Please look for it on my website, rethinkingsurvival.com. I’ll call it Wheels Within Wheels. 

These last two, however, were probably the seriously offending ones.  

Good Lord, Tony. What’s going on is a paradigm shift, as Kuhn well knew. Powerholders with a vested interest in a dying order are, predictably, defending the deep state like animals backed into a corner. Patriots want peace, not war. It’s the deep state that’s desperately engineering civil war, provoking patriots beyond measure, hoping for excuses to inter them in Nazi-like FEMA camps, exterminate opponents as if to prevent the wave of the future. (The fate of Jan 6 political prisoners is a warning example intended to intimidate/discourage freedom seekers.) 

Contrary to the media version of Jan. 6 events, evidence is mounting that it was a diversionary tactic staged by Pelosi et.al. It prevented a timely investigation into election fraud that, had it been allowed to proceed in an orderly fashion as intended, could have prevented what has proven to be a disastrous Biden administration.  

Most importantly, wars cannot be correctly analyzed without a wheels-within-wheels, correct and accurate Quantum Paradigm. The wars we see on the public stage reflect the deeper war going on between good and evil.  

And finally this:  

Tony, for a correct perspective on what’s going on politically in the U.S. you urgently need to get in contact with, follow AND support the work of The America Project. It’s founded by Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. His CEO is Patrick Byrne, former founder/CEO of Overstock.com.  See https://americaproject.com/ 

Bottom line: Here’s proof that the same thought police at work throughout social media, banning truth tellers and shutting down sites that challenge the prevailing false narrative, are also infiltrating channels and altering content! 

Now, once I recognized the scam, and called it out, the pinned message disappeared, and one (only one) of the deleted comments reappeared. Which tells me that the hacker continues to surveil and manipulate comments to your channel. 

Not good! 

So I decided this rare, unique time is too precious to waste. I’m going to turn this disappointment around, change it into a genuine “opportunity.”  The fact that my words had sufficient truth to signal forces of the dark side to retaliate is evidence that I’m on the right track. My ideas DO deserve the attention of Tony, Ray AND their followers.

In fact, the messages deleted might well be exactly the ones the world most needs!

Therefore, my message to you and Ray Dalio stands.  

Further, I need to ask. Do either of you have attorneys on board, charged with protecting your intellectual property? If so, I urge you to have them track down the two phone numbers I was given, first to text, then to message. These thought police are criminals! They need to be outed and dealt with appropriately.
