Truth, Public Enemy Number One
Yes, it’s rather an odd title. For me, and most of my readers, truth is not our enemy. We are all for truth. The Self Is Truth. Truth is what we wake up to Be. Truth is what we live for. Truth is what lies beneath the web of illusions known as the matrix. Truth is what is in reality, free from illusions and deceptions. It is independent, sovereign, causeless, eternal and infinite.
“For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.”
― Carl Sagan
But consider where we are at present. We are living in the matrix, the land of illusions, lies and deceptions. There is no place for truth in this land, for truth dispels the illusions. This land is built upon deceptions, which are built upon more deceptions. This is the labyrinth of confusion. Many have awakened to this. We can see the matrix, as it is, a web of deceptions. But we are still living within it. We can see the deceptions everywhere.
”I awakened, only to find the rest of the world still asleep.”
― Leonardo da Vinci
This entire manmade world is all based upon lies and deceptions. Almost nothing is what you think it is. They are all grand illusions. Just look at the monetary system and the banking system. How about politics – A bunch of lying thieves, actors playing their parts, pretending to care about the people. Science, history, archeology, education and sociology are nothing more than assumptions, theories, deceptions and blatant lies. Don’t get me started on religion. That’s an entire discussion. Now we have the media, sold out to the powers that be, presstitutes, where every story is a lie. Every aspect of this civilization, with its many societies, cultures and religions, is based upon lies and deceit. This is the matrix, the web of illusions, the net.
The people ensnared in this net are completely oblivious to their state of enslavement and degradation. They have no interest in the real truth, enamored by the glitter of false beliefs. Sometimes I wonder if truth were to hit one of them in the head, if they would even take notice, or if they would run away.
“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.”
― Winston Churchill
Lies and deceptions are destroyed by truth. When the truth is known, the deceptions have no more standing. A criminal may plead his innocence, and he may have convincing lies to prove it. But once the true facts are known, the lies have no more sway. They lose their power. It’s the same with the matrix. Once you see through it, for what it is, a web of deceptions, then you can free yourself from its power of influence. The Truth is the one thing that dispels the deceptions, just as the Sun’s rays dissipate darkness.
“To see the universe as it is, you must step beyond the net [the matrix]. It is not hard to do so, as the net is full of holes. Look at the net and its many contradictions. You do and undo at every step. You want peace, love and happiness, and work hard to create pain, hatred and war. You want longevity and you overeat. You want friendship and you exploit. See your net as made of such contradictions and remove them – your very seeing them will make them go away.”
― Nisargadatta Maharaj
The truth is seen as an enemy to society, government, religion and every other institution. Truth destroys the illusions, and all of this is built upon illusions to enslave us. We are ensnared, bound by false beliefs. Once the chains of false beliefs are unlocked, they can no longer bind us. The key is truth. It is truth that unlocks the chains that bind us. The controllers know this all too well, therefor truth is the enemy of the state, the religion, the society and all of the deceptions.
“In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
― George Orwell
Anyone who lives in truth, one who has seen through the charade of illusions, and especially someone who conveys the truth to others, become public enemies. Notice the tactics they use to quiet and ridicule truth. Character assassination and slander are often used. Ridicule is also a popular way to dismiss the truth. They use such words as crazies, conspiracy nuts, wacko jobs, tin foil hat crowd and truthers. Isn’t that odd that a truther, someone who wants or has the truth, is considered a crazy person? Of course they have many other ways to diminish truth. They can use frequency technologies, attack you while dreaming, download thoughts in your head and other subtle means. Of course then there are the physical means to keep someone quiet.
“All truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed; Second, it is violently opposed; Third, it is accepted as self-evident.”
― Arthur Schopenhauer
Yet even though they have so many programs, technology and power, they cannot stop us from waking up. People all over the world are waking up and acknowledging that this is all a sham, and that we are being duped and enslaved by it. They have tried every kind of diversion to attract our attention back into the matrix. They give us choices of techno toys, sex, entertainment, fashions, drugs and myriad types of consumerism. We can also choose between so many religions, so many philosophies and now we have the new age phantasmagoria. So even though they are using so many tactics at their disposal, still people are breaking through their net.
“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
“It is always the false that makes you suffer, the false desires and fears, the false values and ideas, the false relationships between people. Abandon the false and you are free of pain; truth makes happy, truth liberates.”
― Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Such interesting times we are living in. On one side, we have extreme evil, deception and cruelty; and on the other side, we have the absolute truth breaking through. It’s like a flower, so delicate, breaking through the dense concrete to live and give beauty to the world. You are one of those flowers, pushing through the density of the old energy, growing towards the light of day to bloom into such beauty.
Yet people are so afraid of the truth. They see it as the great destroyer of their false world of suffering. They will fight to protect their illusions, even though such illusions are the cause of all of their suffering, ignorance, fear, anguish and hopelessness. Even though they have been enslaved and fed upon, they will fight to protect their prison. This must be the height of insanity.
How many people delight themselves in propagating evil in their lives and the lives of so many others? They are so far enmeshed in the matrix, so far removed from Mother Nature, their fellow creatures and themselves, that they become the perpetrators of extreme violence. And they actually believe that there are no repercussions for their actions. This matrix is very powerful, and if one succumbs to it, his future is always uncertain. One life he is the brutal master, and another life he is the beaten slave.
“People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I’ve learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one’s reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one’s master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person’s view requires to be faked…The man who lies to the world, is the world’s slave from then on…There are no white lies, there is only the blackest of destruction, and a white lie is the blackest of all.”
― Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
Many people proclaim that they want truth, but in actuality, they are only looking for comfort. Because of this, there are innumerable deceptions hiding in fluffy feel good packages that are available in the marketplace, wrapped in semblance of truth. The truth is not so cheap. It takes great courage, dedication, discernment and introspection to awaken to truth. Truth is not always pretty and cuddly.
“The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.”
― Flannery O’Connor
We are living in a world of extreme evil, with extreme good breaking through, and we have all sorts of mixtures of the two. My advice is to distill it all until only truth remains.
