Truth
« on: December 22, 2012, 06:26:45 AM »
Why do we, as a species, refuse to deal with reality? We refuse to accept truth, as we prefer to live within a delusion. For example, the history of the United States. We manufacture atomic bombs and control entire continents. We announce that we are democratic and join clubs that celebrate the concept that we are God's children. And when we consider that we are not what we seem to be...we decide that we are atheists...while all along we cannot even accept the fact that we are capable of killing children at schools.

As a society, we are selfish and materialistic. We contradict ourselves on a daily basis. Our government is run covertly by the CIA and secret societies. Our children grow up living a lie, while we take pills and manicure our self image. There is nothing factual about our life.

And if a person does live in reality, he or she is living a life based on monetary gain while knowing that the rest of the world is living a life where they are abused by their governments because the world is actually a testing ground for the powerful to abuse the weak...with the weak being those who are honest.

As a species we have little or no integrity. If we want to be accepted by our peers we must live a lie. Money and power is all that truly matters. If we were a responsible species, we would have to protect ourselves from ourselves. That is because we are not the good guys. We just pretend to be.

So, we go onto the internet and announce that we are atheists because we have a sense that we are not honest, and we think that religion is the culprit because we are unwilling to sacrifice money or convenience. We are unwilling to study history, which is the only thing that provides truth to all of humanity. As if modern society offers us any honest interpretation of reality.

All we have to do is look in the mirror and choose to be honest. And that comes at a cost. Humanity is an experience that offers us the chance to be more than we have to be, and for no good reason other than as a test for the soul. As a test for the concept of truth. And all the while we cannot even understand why we are what we are. We cannot even begin to accept who we are. We don't want to lose the ability to blame someone else for what we are.

And all the while you have a mirror in your bathroom.

So what are you trying to say ??.
Never become a Christian. If you want to become something, become a Christ. Never become a Buddhist. If you want to become something, become a Buddha.

There is an answer. There is a truth. Behind every delusion we have our truth. This life is ego, and there is history which provides us with truth. It is up to us to redefine humanity to include truth in our lives...which will come at an extreme cost. It is sacrifice. That is why we are here. We have the choice to give. We have excuses to provide us with our lie.

No answer is truth, truth cannot be an answer, as soon as we try to tell what truth is, it is no longer truth, truth is who we are, its all there IS, this life is truth also, its only when we believe that we are separate from life that we find ourselves in the lie. No matter what we do we can never find truth, its when we stop doing and simply let go, that truth is discovered, and in this discovery we find that we are ourselves truth. We are already there, we only need to remember and drop the lie that the ego had us believing.
Never become a Christian. If you want to become something, become a Christ. Never become a Buddhist. If you want to become something, become a Buddha.

It seems that we have a proximity to truth. Our choices allow us to be near or far. The ego is our situation and the spirit is our power, while the delusion is shared among our peers. We are supposed to choose which delusion we embrace, but with the ability to seek truth we have a purpose.
