Truth is simply that which is. That what has happened in the past and what is happening in the present.
We can call something truth if it is reflected in reality.
Our perceptions can't change the truth. A perception doesn't have influence over truth.
Truth is one, but there are numerous interpretations of it. Our perception is not the truth but we can strive to align our perceptions with the truth. It is a very hard and time-consuming task.
We can perceive reality only with our senses, which are far from perfect. For example, our eyes can see less than 0,1% of the visible spectrum.
When you lied or did something that you don't want anyone to find out, you know how much energy is needed to hide the truth. It leads to even more lies and that will require even more energy.
Deception never lives by its own vitality. Because it doesn't exist in reality. It always needs someone's will to propagate it. We need to be very vigilant to not fall for numerous deceptions that are propagated non-stop, 24/7.
Here are some of the quotes from master manipulator Joseph Goebells:
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it people will eventually come to believe it."
"Propaganda works best when those being manipulated are confident that they are acting on their own free will."
"The lie can be maintained only for such time as the state can shield the people from the political, economic and military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the state to use all of its powers to repress dissent. For the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie and thus, by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the state."
Joseph Goebells was the master of propaganda. He certainly knew how to manipulate public's opinion to go with their agenda. He was the minister of propaganda in Nazi Germany.
No matter how hard we try, we will not turn a lie into a truth. That is impossible. We can try to do it, but it will not bring anything good into your life. It will only bring more suffering.
The clearer our perception, the more knowledge we will have about reality and that will help us in everyday life. When you know how something works, you are empowered with that knowledge and you can use it to improve your life, your family's life or a life of the whole humanity.
If you don't know how something functions, you will almost certainly not get the desired result. Knowledge helps us in the manifestation of the desired outcome.
If you don't ask you will never know. Why? is the most powerful question that you can ask. All knowledge begins with why. You need to find out why is something happening. You need to know root cause so you can actually do something about it. Without knowledge about root causal factors, you will not be empowered to change things for the better.
The truth will not always be pleasant. But to turn back to truth won't do us any good. Denial is not the healthy place to be in. It is a place of constant struggle against the truth. We can try to repress and forget the truth but that will require enormous amounts of energy which could be used for some better purpose.
The reason why people go in a state of denial is fear. It is a force that shuts us off. Psychologically, when we are in a state of fear, in a flight or fight state, the mind can't receive information.
No matter how much knowledge of truth we have or we claim we have, there is always more waiting for us to discover it. We need to fight laziness, and also we need to be humble because we never know when will some piece of a puzzle show and from whom. We must never close our minds to reality.
Excerpt from The stellar man by John Baines:
Message from Isis
"I, Isis, mystery of mysteries of nature, speak to you.You who seeks to go through the gates of initiation and you layman who will read with idle curiosity, calm your spirit, clear your mind, calm your emotions, get away from worldly noises and look for the shelter under the mantle of your own Self, so you may cross the threshold that leads to boards of magicians with no danger. Cast away your prejudices, shed your egotism, flee from personalism, analyze with serene eyes, do not fear ought but yourself, do not doubt but that which you analyze superficially, do not deny before meditating, separate yourself from the multitude that screws your ideas, be yourself and think for yourself, do not limit yourself.
You, seeker of wonder, you, candidate for initiation, do not look into the distance, gather all your energy within yourself. Forget about India and Tibet, do not cry out for God, Allah or Jesus. What you look for is right where you are at this moment. Yes, stop looking to outside and bury your sight deeply within yourself, tune your perceptions, sharpen your senses and there in the center of your being are you, your I, your real essence, the truth behind lies, the immortal energy that gives life to the clay that is you.
Look with devotion and reverence because there is light and the light that blinds you is God.Listen to how it decrees, I am the road and the life. But beware, you cannot contemplate God face to face without dying. Are you willing to continue, I can grant you a great gift, I offer you death, do not tremble, this death is the gift of immortals, it is the gift of the phoenix that is gloriously reborn from its own ashes.
To be one must not be, to be born and to be, one must first die.If you achieve this, you will be called the twice born.It is better to die now, than to live awaiting death.Do not believe that if you reject me, you will be able to continue your path unharmed. On the contrary, all paths lead to me. Ignore me and you will be like an orphan who does not know its parents.
You only have two paths, either I devour you, or you unite with me. Yours and only yours is the choice.If you decide to be devoured, fully dedicate your life to enjoyment, drink the last drop from the cup of pleasure,close your mind to the voice of your spirit, abandon yourself to the beast and enjoy the sensual pleasures of matter. Thus, when you a least aware, a moment of final cannibalism will arrive.
Do you really believe that I will take pity of you, you deceive yourself. I have no feelings, I am beyond pleasure and pain, beyond right and wrong, I am like the Sun that rises in the morning to light everything equally, after your death you will become only remains and a relic, afterwards not even that. If you desire to marry me, you must be ready to suffer the death of initiation.You must pass the trials that terrible sphinx will send you without mercy in order to judge your spiritual courage and the quality of your nature.
I surrender myself to only the he who has reached the stage of crucifixion, resisting the attacks of the four elements, I love only those who have drunk from the cup of the bitterness of betrayal, of ridicule and mockery, or persecutions, of slander and of defamation. I love the initiates who have persisted with courage, suffering the loneliness of the spirit in the midst of the world of animals. You come to me after experiencing slender and defamation which are the specific trials of the element of air, after blows and persecution, trials of the elements of earth, after sensual temptations and vices which are trials of element of water and after dominating control ambitions which are the trials of fire.
This corresponds to each of the corners of cross, the one who came to me was nailed. He is as Christ. Never the less, others even the greater have lived and live in secret, no one knows of their existence because it is better for their work. Do not believe that in the world only exist the once born and the twice born.
Unfortunately, the once and a half born and the aborded ones also exist.Do not be taken by their convincing lies and Machiavellian language, these beings live neither in this world nor the next. They are neither initiates nor layman. But imitators of masters, semi-sages, followers of Dead Scrolls and black magicians who covet me and boast of my love when they are not even worthy of my smile. Some may wear tunics, others colors, others Rosicrucian attire, some proclaim themselves only possessors of the truth, believing that they actually possess this monopoly.
All of them claim my friendship but are only beggars who flee to me for crums of wisdom. You do not achieve the second birth by standing on your head or meditating, nor in the coffin of purely symbolic ceremonies, nor by the good works or the grace of the Holy Spirit. If you receive my blessings and continue on your road destined to be food for the gods, not all can be men some can only be animals or worse, vegetables. If you come to me through curiosity, think twice.
It is easy to be rash with what one does not know, if you are not brave enough, turn back. Shield yourself with your vanity and your pride. Content to look at the ground like your kin. If you are not prepared, do not aspire to see my face.Unfortunate is he who possessed by animal greed or misguided curiosity, contemplates only my reflection, as he will never forget me and he will die tormented by the desire to possess me.
If you are prepared, if you have eyes to see and ears to hear, if your intention is pure and noble, proceed without discouragement. And know that from the moment you cross the threshold of occult aboad, I will be anxiously awaiting you like the young bride for her first love. Seek and you will find, do not pray to the gods, fight for me."
This quote is certainly applicable to today's society. There are some people who are waking to some truth, but it is a very small number of people. That is the reason why the job of those who have knowledge is to propagate it widely. You can never know what kind of impact knowledge can have on someone. One single information can change their life for 180 degrees. It is really important to speak about things that you have knowledge about.
Truth is one, it is simple, and it won't disappear just because someone refuses to accept it. It is the responsibility of people who have the knowledge to speak it to others. It is no easy task, there will always be opposition. But it does not matter if it is the information that everybody needs to hear, if it is the knowledge that can help everybody.
