False: Illusory, Not Actually So
A falsity may not be a lie, but just an imitation in order to deceive. This is the world in which we live. Falseness is exaggeration with an ulterior motive of controlling minds, and it is this upon which evil feeds. Starting off as an attraction, we then become dependent, and lose ourselves in falsities. It’s what advertising, gaming, entertainment, news … is all about. 😀
It is only when we know what truth is that we can recognise falsehoods. Until then, we will live in an illusion. Do not give your authority away to a guru-lama-teacher-organisation. For this reason, the Buddha said, “Don’t take my word for it; test it for yourself.”
‘News’ programming starts through suggestion with an ulterior motive. The suggestion then turns into a ‘reality’ because we were ‘prepared’. Read between the lines; ask why something is being said, at that moment. Wars are never clean-cut; always look at the after-effect, the consequences.
When we feel something is not right, that is conscience at work. If we feel uncomfortable, that is conscience at work. Conscience is the messenger between consciousness and the mind, and the quality of consciousness and the mind will dictate what conscience comes up with.
One person’s meat is another’s poison.
Something liked by one person may be distasteful to another.
(The Roman poet and philosopher, Titus Lucretius Carus, coined this expression in the first century BC: “Quod ali cibus est aliis fuat acre venenum” – What is food for one man may be bitter poison to others.)
Clear consciousness, clear mind = clear conscience,
without any after-effects.
