What If We Are All Captured By Culture?
We are all born into a cultural programme, aren’t we?
There is truth and there is deception: these are a unity, like yin and yang. Everything has two purposes.
To the unenlightened mind (that thinks it is enlightened), one purpose is to make something acceptable to people, and the second purpose is to further the goals of establishing a persona.
To an enlightened mind, this deception is a teaching.
What if culture was created to bind us?
What if Francis Bacon (1561-1626) wrote the plays and sonnets of Shakespeare (1564-1616)?
What if Francis Bacon wrote the King James Bible around 1611?
What if Francis Bacon was influenced by Rosicrucianism*, Freemasonry and the Occult?
What if Francis Bacon wasn’t the only clever person to write beautiful stories?
We all like to believe in a good story. As long as a society is occupied, what is really happening is kept secret. A deception has to have a huge element of truth in it to become believable. A sophisticated culture can keep us in a dream state for a very long time.
the Dharma shines fresh light on to the picture
and completes it.
May confusion dawn as wisdom.
(*Rosicrucianism is a spiritual and cultural movement that arose in Europe in the early 17th century that purported the existence of a hitherto unknown esoteric order to the world, and made seeking its knowledge attractive to many.)
