When Did Conspiracies Start?
Around 5000 years ago.
Conspiracy: secret plan or a cabal.
“A cabal is a group of people united to promote their private views or interests in an ideology, state, or other community, often by intrigue and usually unbeknownst to those outside their group. The use of this term usually carries negative connotations of political purpose, conspiracy and secrecy. The word cabal comes from the word Kabbalah – to receive or accept.” Wikipedia
Conspiracies are mistaken views.
There are two opposing views on reality; dualistic and non-dualistic. In between, are those who don’t care but still believe in an ‘I’ and everything to which this ‘I’ relates.
Anything that can be known starts with our consciousness; there is no belief present at that point. Belief comes afterwards. To know anything correctly and precisely, this consciousness has to be unbiased, so it has to be pure consciousness. That is what we are. That is our truth.
We are all, first and foremost, non-dual pure consciousness. This consciousness is neither physical nor mental. It is that which sees, is aware, is purely conscious and never changes. Our ideas are changeable but consciousness itself is unchanging, and we can see and realise this. This is what our existence is all about. Pure consciousness is our reality. It is from this that everything is known: anything else is made up of ideas.
There are, however, those who believe in ‘something else’ that is apart from their pure consciousness. They chose to be dualistic and worship some thing. How did these two different views of duality and non-duality come about?
Truth is not something that is created, as anything created is temporary and has an end. Truth never dies. The truth is that which sees. It just is. The truth can be hidden for while, but the truth always comes out because the truth is obvious … when pointed out! Conspiracies are only created by those who do not understand the deeper meaning of universal laws. These natural laws – attraction, repulsion and indifference – drive the universe, and translate in human terms as desire, fear and ignorance (while, in essence, they are pure compassionate consciousness, the three kayas.)
If we do not know how the universe runs, then it runs us – it controls us.
If we do know how the universe runs, then we run with it – we control it.
How do we control the universe?
We just become aware of universal power.
Ignorance is the cause of imprisonment.
Questioning is the cause of enlightenment.
Ignorance creates confusion. Confusion creates fantasies. Fantasies create conspiracies – creating more confusion. Ignorance is anything that obscures pure consciousness. In ignorance, we can be led to believe anything. In pure consciousness there is nothing to believe, as it is realised.
Would a God create a confused universe?
We can all read about God’s intentions, but who wrote those words?
Ask yourself the question, “Who created our view of the world?”
There seems to have been a divergence of views in the area of Persia/Iran around 5000 years ago, at the beginning of the Kaliyuga. One group – Zoroastrians – had a dualistic view of ‘one God’ and ‘me’ as their reality. The other group – the Vedantists (which means ‘not two’) – had a non-dual view of reality.
The Zoroastrian view of God led to Judaism, Islam and Christianity, while the other view of pure consciousness led to Hinduism and Buddhism.
Confusion can arise when our view and our practice don’t match up.
A conspiracy is anything or anyone who denies the truth
by colouring it with a belief.
