Can We Trust Anyone? And …
… can they trust us?
We live in a make-believe world of mental ideas upon which we fixate, and we defend that vigourously. The point is that everyonelives in a make-believe world, and that is scary. It’s scary because people don’t recognise their enlightened essence, and feed off assumptions. We have been caught up in this play for so long that it seems to be the only reality: this was illustrated by Plato 420 BC in his shadow cave of deceptions. The truth is nothing new.
Our conventional minds are governed by three principles; desire, aversion and indifference. These three principles are how we survive, but if we obsess, we become addicted to being a certain type and are thus imprisoned. Actually, this is just various levels of narcissism and self importance.
Until we become aware that we and all beings are controlled by the three universal principles of desire, aversion and indifference, we will not be free, and so cannot be trusted. Actually, the only fault (or sin) we have is not to recognise this. 😀
We are stuck in a servitude of ignorance, and have learnt to love it. Does that sound harsh? Let’s be honest; when we walk into a room full of people, there are some to whom we are attracted, some we are repelled by, and some we just ignore. Whether we like it or not, the whole universe is governed by these principles.
Is there a hidden hand guiding us? Oh yes. It’s us, as a collective! Our very being came into physical existence precisely because it ignored its true ethereal nature of pure consciousness. Through desire of wanting more, we judged whatever we desired and became adverse to it. This is our cycle of existence – a lack of compassion.
If we are not in control of ourselves and our emotions, then we are controlled by the current collective thinking; the media, corporate tyranny and the behavioural conditioning of humans sees to that!
“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.” -Aldous Huxley published in 1932
Do you think this is fantasy?
We can see this happening all around us; people are suggestible and easily addicted. The majority of the world’s population is now connected to the technocratic system, which is the social conditioning of the collective.
Becoming free is simple;
we merely have to see.
It takes practice
to be honest
and worthy of trust.
