Spiritual Perception And Its Limitation

Just What Is In Your Spiritual Hands?

.

‘Spiritual people transcend the judgemental nature of  political and other societal interest. They seek their own perfection; a union with The Divine, with no business in telling or suggesting to others how they should behave or change their ways.’

Wrong

{This post delves in part into the subjective vs objective nature of spiritual perception and behavior.  It appears that there has been a movement to differentiate or obscure spiritual perception and motivation.

A movie called, “The Secret”, may highlight this shift in experiential perception, being that it makes spiritual reality out to be all about me and my success or failure in Life.  This tends to ignore attention to the relationships to society’s overarching systems and logical constructs the individual is immersed in, for one of self realization.

Human institutions, however, are human engineered, and as such, likely will at times require repair, overhaul or reinvention.  Just who does this is then is of critical importance.

Self realization is a good thing, but where one chooses to truncate self perception in consciousness may be another thing altogether.}

: The Subjective Individual Nature vs The Objective Nature Of Life

In Which Life Realm Is Spiritual Perception Excluded?

There appears to be a paradox in spirituality, or in other words, in living by The Truth(and I would add; of Love).  It seems there are kinds of obstacles to knowing The Truth of Spirit (God or of Life), and then of living by this awareness.

Various ideas have developed along humankind’s way to explain why we are having difficulty in our experience of Life.  Why do bad things happen and why do bad people and influences seem to be the reason why? Each of our personal spiritual perceptions, tends to have a narrative line as to why humans, and so we ourselves, have difficulties in life often caused by others, or some internalized trouble that seems to follow us. {  Abundance – Understanding the Cosmic Law of Attraction }

The “cure” to spiritual illness is promised by many religions, cultures and group sub-cultures.  Do this and get better; recite this and get better; perform this over and over and get better, plead and beg to God for Mercy and be better; Think only good thoughts and get better; pray and pray for your sins or for what you want and get better, and on and on…  For most of us, we may wonder why any number of these approaches at restoration can lead to salvation of our experience of Life and The Divine, then one day, without warning, we may suddenly wonder what happened?  Why am I now in trouble yet again?

Most of us know or suspect it is in us, this; why things go astray.  An old adage; ‘We find what we look for.’, (A form of The Law Of Attraction) simply sums up the basic spiritual challenge. We may in some unsuspecting moment wonder; “Why has this happened again?”.

Trouble seems to find us, or many of us, no matter where we go and what we do, all while I might be ignorant as to what perceptual lens I am looking through into my world all this time; a way of perception and cognition.  The sense of aloneness and alienation appears to separate us from a full heart immersion in our whole life, including others and outer environments.  The sense of self can retreat inward, erect walls for protection and exclusion.  I am then a somewhat lone individual, “On my own.” and possibly looking out for my survival. This senario sets up manipulative environments.

Our ego self, in this scheme of existence, seems separate from much of the rest of Life; people and all the universe.  A heart connection to any grand outer and overreaching Self seems absent.  We are susceptible here, to both restoration or not, and to attachment to various plans that purpose to fix the exclusionary experience.  Some of these can be ideologically invisible in cultures, such as in religion, politics, economics, and cultural definitions of reality, presenting their own scheme as to who deserves what from wherever and who does not, often based upon observable behaviors.

The Interpretation Program

We assume much by our processing of appearances as to what reality is.  We might perceive much more into reality by what we, in effect, have consented to regarding inter-human reality.  We look for things to confirm what seems to be, by what may well be erroneous standards that have institutionalized resistance to objective oversight. Conceptual firewalls are erected to defend unquestionable consensual reality matrices.  Classic to this defensiveness are Confirmation Bias and its best friend; Thought-terminating Clichés.  For an institutional defense such as to religion, the word, heretic, was a much used fear inducing cliché with a built in intention; to stop minds and hearts from opening up to challenging information or opinion.

Conserving Bias Is Intrinsic To Any Conservatism

Preserving bias in natural to conservatism.  We all conserve kinds of bias, particularly those we do not know are bias, such as many emotional states are; bias to a conservation of a subjective angle.  Subjectivity is individually unavoidable and useful. The problem endemic to it is; preserving a subjective view, by avoiding the rules and regulations of objective oversight, brings delusional cognition into being, preserving ignorance by a mandate of subjective ideology; the worshiping of self interest above universal connectivity.

Walled in trouble is likely found in any unquestionable zone–questioning not allowed, for I am then willing, by my instituted ignorance, to then agree to live by belief instead of by knowing.  Claiming things to be known’s when they are beliefs, becomes a mental prerequisite to keep the surface awareness of cognitive dissonance underground, where is wreaks a kind of spiritual, or soul havoc. We have created a contradiction and dissonance between the reality of Creation on one hand, and my ideas of It on another.

A new emotional diversion device now can become operational; that of projection, a casting out of ones subconscious demons onto outer targets.  These will be the people and behaviours which trigger the inner turmoil.  Inner demons are now sanctioned emotionally to be persecuted out in the collective zone, where I can old others responsible for my uncomfortable feelings. The conservative mentality is unawares, usually, of its deceptive trickery, but will now see these others as being most devious and subversive of all that is good in life.

All the while, an ignorance protects the evil inherent to conservative rationalization from being cognizant to the conservative.  The real truth will become seen as being part of the problem, so objectivity itself must be demonized.  This is one reason why so many “spiritual people” find the scientific method so objectionable.  It appears to be a contradictory faith to their own.

In general, conservatives are locked into their belief as a unquestioned reality.  Other ideas will then be perceived as false no matter how objectively accurate or honest they actually are.  Those who seek an honest evaluation of truthfulness by the laws of evidence and association–deep cause an effect, will be blamed and shamed by the conservative mind. This has created a huge industry in cognitive dissonance avoidance, projection, and blaming and shaming of those who reveal questions to the conservative mindset.

Conservatives are actually spiritually insecure, under internal pressure to force belief over truthful reality, a story over the Living Truth.  This makes for both many an unhappy camper, unhappy the world has such challenges in it, as well as an inherently arrogant that they are right and the rest of the world wrong.

One recent example is the climate change debunking campaigns, often being waged in honor of diverting attention from pollution generating industries and lifestyles.  These industries pay much for favorable propaganda, finding natural allies in those shifting the context on environmental data to incite doubt.  For instance; last winter a major snowstorm was widely touted as honest evidence of the dishonesty of global warming advocates.

(Climate Change is a theory based upon the chemical and particulate alterations humans are making to the atmosphere.  Aspects of its evidence can appear contradictory, when they are actually evidence of the complex changes and extremes being created as climate shifts. Manipulators know the value of ignorance, as well as the lifestyle and belief attachments a population may have.

Control of perception is all about containing and arranging its parameters, usually invisibly so as to not appear manipulative.  Polluting industries will associate lifestyle, employment as mandates to the good nature of their intention. Divert attention from apparent problems to apparent good things, shifts appearance Reality cognitions.

This is designer Consensus Reality creation; the attempt to put the individual perception into a conserved question free zone.  Now accountability for the reality of pollution falls upon populations(who must pick up the tab or face the consequences) and not the corporation or industry, making an institution such as Democracy, less of an obstacle to individual or corporate behavior.  Spiritual “schisms” or dichotomies can then be harmonized with supposed economic ones, the individual not knowing where they have now given up their authority to a “new” authority quite likely to abuse it.

The Perceptual Shell Game

Opportunism and ignorance can use superficial contradictions as being evidence of deeper ones, perhaps leading one to think the evidence is evidence of deception by a surface fact. Now attention is diverted, ignoring the deep context of the reality of the vast preponderance of data. One of the biggest industrial tools in the propaganda news worlds box on crayons is the using of ignorance to preserve and conserve wealth over the consequences of reality, a Faustian bargain. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deal_with_the_Devil)

Meanwhile, Central Park in New York City has just had it warmest meteorological summer on record.  I have heard nothing about this from political punditdum, unlike the right wing “echo chambers”–(circular repetition through media outlets of ideas, talking points, to enhance the appearance of truthfulness by repetition) widely publicized debunking global warming campaign last winter.  This evidences the disingenuous Confirmation Bias, with its selective truth gathering, along with all the blaming and shaming that went along with it.

The whole effort is manufactured to control individual identity attachments by propaganda.  When someones ideas are made to seem the ones of bad people, truth can be sacrificed for belief.  The individual is now wedged away from objectivity, including honest truthfulness and full context.  This allows manipulation by identity attachments to trump Truth, while believing it now is the defender of The Truth.

But whatever happened to The Secret and Spiritual Perception?  It is actually everywhere.

Getting What I Ask For Without Knowing Its Deeper Connection To Reality

Notions such as loyalty, seek to bypass honest evaluations of the Truth, for explanations of subjective connection now worshiped as The Truth of Value.  Now real truth can be scorned for ideological connection and purity; meaning honest objectivity is demeaned for what are now ideological sacrosanct conceptions of value, worth and self respectability.

This does not negate the humility, that as human beings, our minds are physically incapable of knowing all as far as we know.  Instead, I am fully capable of asking myself why I chose a method of perception that excludes the honest path of knowledge for one of a consensual agreement over wishful thinking.

Here, in this avoidance platform, is where many a Thought-terminating Cliché will reside. These are kind of diversionary signs that cry out conceptually; Danger!  Do not enter!  You know this is False and against your survival interest. Instead of a fact based warning based upon the rule of Truth Itself, we can stand in proclaimed unquestionable “truths” probably declared to be The Truth. This comes with human designer intentions, including a methodology internalizing unexaminable ignorance laying claim to owning Truth, and even to owning The Divine by proclamation and not honest observation inclusion.

We may as well exclude what seems not to comply to our presumptions, even so far as to deny our own experience of its right to “complain” about inconsistency and contradiction in our own actions.  These are primitive but effective mechanisms for maintaining pretence as being real without our own conscious awareness.  We do have a kind of “Law of Attraction” in this ‘finding what we look for.  This does not fill in the question of presumption; that if I decide to be in charge of my experience by seeking what I would rather happen; how do I know my desire is right? Am I allowed to wonder over my reasons, or must I blindly believe that my desire is Divine and cannot be questioned?

The Law of Attraction may have a corollary; “The Law of Avoidance”, which may have the Full reality of my situation being discarded, for it contains possible experience that does not appear to be desirable, lets say illness or suffering loss.  For spiritual perception, is this honoring Spirit, or claiming Life to in some way be itself an error which I have decided to avoid?  Anger, argument, contentious debate; do these have a place in my life or is it too important for my wish list of self actualization achievement to engage in them?

Religion, and in another word, spirituality, are under pressures that often relate to a cultures state of being.  In very rosy times, with all this modern worlds believed in benefits, we are encouraged to find ourselves contented in our possessions. What you have and how much, or how big and how important your possessions are, becomes a kind of worshiped ideology.  Wealth and power increase in apparent and consensual realities, questions to them being largely avoided. Some now include God in this idea of me having, possessing the real one, to everyone elses wrong one.

In crisis we may claim that all we need is our health and one another, but outside of crisis, much else is encouraged to compete for our attention.  We are currently in an age of materialism worship as well as that of experience.  List of must doo’s point direction for the exciting and fulfilled life.  Being, being where you are, being with what you have, loving Life as it is, and supporting the prerequisite for that, seem relegated to those with near death experiences, or certain of the poets and mystics.

The rest of us are in serious need of keeping up with our wants and all their survival interest; the ones driving society into increasing stress, and the planet into increasing instability. Many of us have a desire NOT to know what we are really doing, while wanting to know how to get what we wish for to keep up.  Lifestyle becomes the self driver, while Spirit, not so much, unless of course we now consider material success to be that of spiritual as well.  The eye of the needle seemingly replaced by the glow of abundance.  Well as long as you find some manner of claiming that money, or having is not your love of it, just nice to have since God likes me for being a believer in good faith?

We are now essentially ruled, governed, by money and possession.  Many a relationship crumbles under the strains of getting and keeping, as if it is wed to money.  We are subservient to survival, a survival now highly manipulated, proliferating with what are essentially deceptive schemes to gag and bound the individual, including ones interest and considerations, to maintaining the lifestyle of the power interest wed to having.  Identity for many is now framed to a grand good life, and so the threats to that are all those poor and unfit humans seemingly all too abundant in their failures.

Take a look into most conservative, (modern propaganda conservatives that is), and you will see most all the tricks of the mind control trade; identity framing diversion, demonization of objectivity, contortion of value to serve hierarchical human systems and demeaning those who have little, as only deserving what they have.

This strategy of shame and blame seems to have found a natural ally with much religion. Religion is not exactly fact nor context oriented and has nearly identical shaming and blaming tactics related to preserving hierarchical relationships.  Materialism’s diversion and subversion of identity finds a natural ally with established religion systems; their mind control and manipulation strategies are nearly identical, and they rely on belief above fact and context.

My Religious Experience

I was a member of a church a long time ago.  I was a full time member, one who gave services at times, speaking for as long as I wished during the service I was conducting.  I loved expressing what I felt were the deeper truths of life, as well as preparing during non-service days for what I would offer; by how truthful and observant I would be to “The Truth” during each day.  The pressure of this seemed to heighten emotion, awareness and humility.

Much material of “service” relevance comes to one from their own lack of perfection and consistencies to what they believe to be Truth. Relationship issues, self respect issues, these are often demonstrated in ones respect for others and of Life.

Very deep self issues; the unresolved issues of the far past, particularly childhood, tend to simmer subconsciously, they can come up, “acting out”. This happens not because some evil spirit is particularly doing it from the outside at the time, but because ignorance is harmful inside; ignorance of ones own motivational platforms, and ignorance of those who likely passed this emotional, perceptual virus to you or me from their own ignorance.  We can feel cursed, or that “This is how it goes for me!” Persistent issues of the soul tend to be the unresolved ones, deep ones relating to love; its abandonment or conditionality manipulation.  These are kinds of primal experience disharmonies with what seems the design of our lives in the universe.  We do seemed designed to be in a state of love.

The First Cut

In a manner, with this early problematic injection of separation, we can seem cursed. The source of the “spell” may be silently known to have come from the outside; it is not how we now want our life to be, and especially did not when we learned to internalize the dysfunction.  When ignorance such as this acts out, some sort of illness follows, bodily illness, perhaps in the mind, and spiritual illness; how we perceive reality.  The haunting nature of what is sometimes referred to as “The Sins of the Father” seem to persist until resolution.  Misrepresentations of Life and Spirit, in effect, ask for resolution by understanding and forgiveness. It is necessary to comprehend the ignorance and let go of its legacy.  Understanding of the human spirit is usually required.

Most humbling to the emotions is this fact; we live in a rational universe that is known by being present with reason.  We have trouble if our ignorance is secretly in the drivers seat with its worshiping of rationalization and question diversion above honest realty perception.

I am not saying that The Law of Attraction is precisely wrong.  What is wrong is if and when what we seek is to be not scrutinized as to its connection the the Living Context our lives are emerged in.  If this lack of scrutiny is the case, then ignorance will surely follow, opening its doorway to evil.

We need to know how wrongness happens.  Why? To respect what is right and true.  It is that simple.

Nothing is beyond our spiritual hands; not the environment, not societal issues, not political or spiritual consideration.  Those who suggest this is not the case, should be scrutinized for their refusal to question; Just what are they hiding or allegedly protecting; The Truth or ignorance?  We will not know without an honest question being allowed…

A Great Denial: Organized Religion; The God Game; Turf Battles in Heaven

Turf Battles in Heaven

The objective and the subjective, fact and fantasy, can mix without accounting for in this conscious matrix known as my reality.

IMG_4372

Most religions depend upon the individuals location to appear true; In the US we tend to be Christian, in Iran, Muslim, in India, Hindu or Buddhist.  Wherever you happen to be, you likely have heard of these other religions or beliefs, You know what they are about and are not buying it.  For some reason; wherever you are, you do not need to examine your beliefs tenets to the core, or compare them in any objective fashion to these other systems.  This subjective bias is a curious truth.

Why do you believe in God or not?  Most of us will never admit that we believe what our culture told us to.  We do not “admit  it” because it is like the nose on our face; right in front of us, a part of us, yet mostly seen only on reflection.  We are convinced by repetition, and more repetition, to reinforce our confirmation; that our concept of things is correct, for we seem to be operating from within them, everyone seems to be.

As for having a doubt about culture, what credentials does one individual have? After all, most “authoritative”experts will agree their culture is most relevant and good. By inference then, what do I know, me, I’m not an expert?  Not on the reason why our culture is the way it is.  We are in it, and likely not outside looking in with comparative information to question basic structures that form the bedrock to the whys that we do things the way we do here.  Most often we go with the flow, and have since birth.  This does create a potential endemic problem; an inability to question fundamentals. We are in an automatic pilot driven confirmation bias; we just are not presented with contrary or other information compared to our cultures dialectic.

This is a first step in manifestation of the Great Denial.  Denying legitimate questioning, by being instilled with a perception, by apparent place or situation; that certain legitimate questions are illegitimate, or else they would have rearranged culture to their truth.  We have an effective consensus reality that culture is true and valid, and an implied assumption that truth wins over lies and falsity.  We know many good and honest people, we might be one ourselves, insinuating that we are somehow or someway wrong, would seem to be wrong.  At least it would seem to instigate a disturbance that I might feel was not called for.  Some questions will have a way of appearing illegitimate. This should be cause for concern, instead of certainty.

This kind of nature, and, or nurture issue continues to the factors individuals use to compare and evaluate themselves and one another.  I decide the kind of hair style, or lack of, that represents me.  I may force myself to act in ways that seem to be not what I wish, conditioning myself to accept most of these “right ways” in time.  If I grew up under the old Egyptian Pharaoh culture, I would know I could only create the human image in a distorted form following an established formula—-for a millennium.  Likely, to break this taboo back then would have seemed wrong, and just as likely a threat for its apparently wrong reason.–Why are you challenging what is?  Why do you not respect what we do?  You are trouble.

IMG_4371

But mostly, we do not acknowledge our bias of point of view, not honestly and fairly, and not with open and intelligent questioning characteristic of a healthy minds critical thinking ability. We may be unable to legitimately question important notions of the individuals appropriate behavior in culture, even though we have acknowledged that society must enforce some inhibitions on some behaviors for everyone’s own good.

We see many taboos as self evident to an intelligent person; I do not do some things I wish, for they would bring harm to me.  They might well bring harm to others, and so they are suppressed for their obvious inappropriateness.  Society, me included, wish not to permit much harmful behavior, particularly when directed at others.  If I feel rage, it is not OK to just go and physically harm those I might emotionally wish to.

Culture, or society, or peer pressure, forms aspects of my will into its own image, and at times for good reason.–Some freedom and liberty is not good for the whole of society which I am a part of, but just as with the Pharaoh’s not allowing true human form to be represented; we may not know the truth as to why society is suppressing something that to us seems both real and not harmful.  The converse can be true as well; I can consider taxes an evil; someone taking the opportunity to take my will away:  I cannot do what I want with my money.

{The tax issues always deserve critical analysis.  I am not endorsing pork projects and the like as being in the common interest.  Here I am examining tax as an extension of the public will, and where the individuals will and responsibilities interact with societies.  So I am for constructive critical analysis of societies institutions.}

This detached abstraction of money, and specifically “my” money, does not consider all the interrelated aspects that the concept of money exist in.  Though I may need one more dollar to buy a meal, that meal comes across roads, I expect it will be wholesome and not harmful. When demanding a meal by intending to consume a meal, I enter into the interrelationships that create that meal; the corporations, the farmers, the middle-people and meal makers.  This too is connected to “my” money, and yet to deny these relationships I need only alienate myself from the connection and consider it instead an imposition.

Tax that went into the roads, the employment, the agricultural interest, the other relationships connected to societies healthy functioning, for some, this is now an evil imposition; they taking form you.  Why are the interest of the whole of life being rendered irrelevant to the subjective truncated notion of “my” interest? The they of government in democracy is actually you and I through representation.  The they in business, who take my money for their product or service, pass on their cost, their profit, and their tax to me.  Yet in a fundamental way, aside from not engaging them, I have virtually no say.  It is pay or don’t play.  Or pay or do not receive health care, or…  Both of these societal entities take my money, yet I am to consider the one I actually vote on as not being the one with my interest?  Clever denial and diversion.

{As an example of all the libertarian like proclamations of getting rid of imposed taxes for many instances, through Democratic and Republican administrations alike, the tax burden has been being shifted over recent decades; from the wealthy, who among other things; use, abuse, and manipulate The Commons many times over the common folk, to the common folk, who suffer the consequence and pick up more of the tab.  That— taking what I earned abstraction ruse, away from responsibilities and accountability, to the religion of detached individualism.  Again.  A clever denial and turf battle played out at public expense, but not owned up to.}

I believe that throughout history, some people have learned how to manipulate others for their own benefit.  To cover this usage of The Commons, scapegoats and whipping boys must be targeted. Particularly in democracies, attention must be taken away from source causes, and have those felt individual injuries manifesting from exploitation of The Commons be targeted essentially onto those who have not much power.  The equative power of democracy needs to be divided and conquered for the usual societal manipulators to proceed without much blow-back from common awareness.

Critical thinking must be dismantled and its alleged incarnation handed over to various amalgamations of belief and faith, where true reality checking is impaired or even considered evil.  There are ready and willing ideologies that promote these diversions of attention and corralling of the will, particularly of its common interest, instead promoting a myopic focus upon the self and its travails, where the whole of Life then becomes its challenge and proving ground.

Here is a kind of Great Denial; where self centeredness is considered both holy cause of redemption and self consuming.  Then this alienated, or separated/detached self, can be sold all manner of explanation as to how the non powerful are actually imposing their failed wills upon the righteously willful.  Notice how much conservatism is actually about preserving the institutions of the conservative haves, and subjugating all the rest that be to second class citizenship or worse.  Us and them become operational truths seeming to be established reality and verified by belief.

IMG_4513

We tend to judge others and other cultures by our own values, and tend to feel ours are the true, right, or the only legitimate ones.  This is how “The Other”, a kind of unknown, and so inherently threatening characterization, falls upon many of our fellow humans.  Dropped on them by me.  Covered in this veil of judgement, a kind of ignorance is both instituted, and in effect, worshiped as true, even for some, as God mandated.

All humans, unless perfectly honest, forthright and fair, do this interpersonal condemnation, and at times, even dump it upon themselves by the same standards.  A culture, however, is somewhat like a meal.  We may bite into it and survive for awhile, but we do not necessarily like what we chew, and it is not necessarily fully wholesome.  We may go through life in a kind of starving for self realization state, and be kept there by the powers that be, who may have found a way to use our stress to their advantage.

We may think we are free to know whatever needs be known. For a culture to be self correcting, it would need some way of verifying truthfulness.  Mostly we trust that the true, or accurate information will come to us somehow in a Democracy with a free press.  Yet even that is a broad and foolish assumption.  Do we know how free the press is? as in the information in it and why what is there is there and other information not?  Can we be certain that our votes are even counted correctly and fairly?  Are you sure?  To make such cognitive dissonance unimportant, we must camouflage or otherwise deny relevance.—Who cares what the human shape allowed to be drawn is anyway? Troublemakers?

But does anythings existence as a human concept mandate its continuance, rendering questioning existentially irrelevant? In an objective and open observation point of view, the liberal notion of cultural relativity is valid only to certain degrees operationally.  Fortunately, to be an honest agent in determining this cultural validity factor that I presume, requires a completely honest and understanding mind, and most of us can be quite confident that we are not the ones to pass fair and just judgement, that is if we look and acknowledge when our confident judgments have been found wrong.  We can, however, render comparative facts from professed belief as legitimate questions of true context.

We allow ourselves sound fundamental questioning, or deny what may well be each of our God (or Life) given right to think for ourselves and so live a life of true merit, instead of imitation merit by external fear based perception.  To not so define truthfulness for oneself, is to live a life of unexamined robotic belief, as if following in the footsteps of the cause of some lemmings deaths, where huge numbers can plunge off a cliff to drown. Why? Cause the herd was pressing them over the precipice unknowingly; a movements assumption.  For humans, belief in truth can be, in result, seemingly suicidal, for not much reason other than acting from our ignorance instead of the better angels of understanding.  This is the trouble with thinking we already know the answer in a living and vibrant context of existence that is in fundamental ways One Thing.

IMG_4353

Understanding is the result of knowing context extends, yet knowing requires freedom, not just to question, but to assume freedom to question without that questioning being cast as illegitimate.  In most religion and politics, for instance, this freedom to question is not only discouraged, except where advantageous for belief reinforcement, but often assumed to be the tool of evil; or that which seeks to destroy our view of an institution.  I say that, for real Truth, true reality, is never actually destroyed or erased, but our opinions and beliefs about it can be.  We fear change of basic perceptual parameters, for they may cast doubt upon ones cosmological assumption, or spiritual ones.–The true human forms shape exist in reality no matter how much authority says it is either wrong, or offensive to society to “allow”.

How many of us could handle all we know being found out to be wrong?  We mostly avoid this perception from our lives, we wish to live our own life right, for perturbing basic logical conceptual assumptions can be emotionally unsettling.  Culture supplies many ways to do this avoidance of truth checking, mostly by shaming questions, or otherwise define them as illegitimate.  Most conservative movements are for damming critical thought understanding, and insisting that only their own way or view is the true one. These usually try to make their own belief constructs appear as the only legitimate ones.  Questioning with a free and independent spirit is deemed offensive, or dysfunctionally eccentric.

Even communist movements that scorned religion, seek to establish their own kinds of religious like icons, and define fundamental questions as inherently illegitimate or falsely motivated.   We would not know this as true without truthful examination of context.  The words and proclamations can be what one claims them to be, but when the reason as to why the image is cannot be legitimately questioned is not allowed consciously in public without shame; someone is seeking to make unquestionable imagery.  In effect, telling us that religion is the opiate of the masses, as they create their own opiates for the masses.  Shame, blame, denial; claims of heresy and other means of purging questions; these all indicate kinds of manipulation control, not by understanding and its light, but by emotional prejudice and its reliance on darkness–unexamined areas held in confinement.

For all intents and purposes, the battle in heaven is carried out within our own minds, even though the causes fought for may have much outside influence and strategy.  Unfortunate for us, these institutions that claim dominance and preeminence have their own self perpetuating forces operating to contain us, not unlike any viral influence.  Ideas carry out their own potential pathology; expressing into form elements of their presence.  Unless you and I are able and willing to be the cure to the providers of false reality, it will perpetuate itself even as claiming to be the one and the only cure to trouble.

Why if only I did not question, all would be peaceful, so questions are the problem. Can’t you just see that clearly!

IMG_4373

Ah! the peaceful bliss of the silent, and, or ignorant mind.

This is the circular reasoning paradigm many institutions insist upon to continue as is unabated by the influence of now.  Blank minds are minds that stand not in ones way.  They do not, however, stand for the way of whole truth or light either.  Blind following is not the meritorious virtue it is often presented as.  Nothing advances in its real presence if it is not allowed to change with the times.  This change seems to be the nature of Life itself; conserving what is true and real while always allowing new expression to fill into new space.  Most ideology does not allow this dynamic truthful connection to Life.  It is then suspect as an element of ignorance, even if shrouded in enlightenment’s garb.

Ignoring Shades of Deception; Ignoring The Whole

Our modern world’s corporate narrative is often taken in as Gospel; although the earths ecosystems may be reeling from pollution, resultant of materialism, environmental exploitation and overpopulation; if gas is cheep, car manufactures, along with oil companies, promote gas guzzling vehicles for their good, and not The Wholes.  This is a natural byproduct of corporatism as an ideological bias;  just as religious or political movements, it will use apparent stress to benefit itself.   They wish us then to covet the larger, safer, faster, bigger vehicle; that is the spun slant for our reality framing to consider.  Questioning the context of its existence however, becomes forbidden.  To make things seem forbidden, shame and ostracism must be tagged to their holding.

Its need in your life is then promoted as an objective of desire, a truth for me, driving the consumption and materialist dependency loop.–Why are you against business succeeding or free choice? = Blamed for questioning whole context as being of any relevance.  Now see how many of these kinds of Thought-terminating cliché’s the conservative movements possess.  The political/economic/ and many religious ones are packed with them, to stop you from thinking objectively.

Corporatism has become a kind of materialistic religion, claiming to make all things right for the individual—if they can pay.  Our culture is full of good advice in this materialistic regard; ones love becomes seemingly connected across it.  I can advice you with all sincerity, to buy the monster truck that is built like a tank and guzzles gas; not because I wish to see how fast the earth can be consumed and laid waste, but to desire for your own safety.  What is wrong with that? Perhaps nothing as long as questioning is denied one way or another.

In this way, subjective context are claimed paramount, as would fit a one for everybody consumer driven expansionist culture living in a cancerous paradigm and denying the consequences. A holistic or inclusive view taking in the rest of the connecting context is not helpful to consumerism as an operational identity in consciousness.  Who in business wants everyone second and more guessing or questioning what is for sale?  Not the sellers!

And so objective reality is subjugated to subjective narrative’s of the quest for the good self actualized life.  Shame those who would suggest otherwise.  In this pursuit; many greedy narratives can be designed and anchored/tagged to the kinds of people who caution us about abusing the environment (implying consequence beyond sale price).  It then becomes about directing questioning away from the objective, and instead, to the subjective, where little proof need be presented.

For some reason, possibly consciously known by leaders, true objectivity must be shamed and blamed, thus becoming not the kind of thing to identify oneself with. — Heaven conquered from within.  If you wonder how so many conservatives can believe in so many outrageous and often contradictory ideas and allegations? They need not consider actual reality, but stay focused in their ideological sight, which is willing to see and believe all manner of insanity, as honest fact–true cause need not be checked by including contra questioning.  They become trapped in their own world of logical association unattached to objective critical analysis.  Confirmation bias may be an organic aspect of conservative myopia.

To test this out; watch the unsubstantiated fact associations chained together on any of the main conservative propaganda platforms.  Attitude and innuendo truly are intended to lead perception to places not requiring objective examination.  And a big YES; we all have what are called conservative and liberal tendencies, just do not acknowledge them if they seem not aligned with our take on things.

It, subjective reality mind framing in a business, does not have to consider the whole when corporate bottom lines are the business models deciding factor.  We, as subjects of and to corporatism, will tend to go along with its narrative, and not question its sanity, nor its pathological and suicidal tendency.  We will draw the given but not acknowledged distortion as the truth, not questioning its own actual motivation, nor its problematic consequence.  Most of us succumbed to external controls this lazy way; by never questioning our context, pretending to be unattached to consequence.  The Great Denial in action.  (Our country has been conducting itself as if business interest are the leading ones, and the individuals a distant second to last place.  This is why I call it corporatism.)

This denial can be operating within us as true and relevant to our survival, as those biases of our political and religious presumed choice, but actually often handed down to us by a seeming  situational  imperative.  The best place for darkness to govern?–right out in the light, appearing to be the same as knowledge.  Those following various forms of darkness (embedded ignorance) will know this, and seek the same out in others to use to their own benefit, no matter how delusional that benefit actually is.

You must decide if political or religious robes are true garments, or those of deception and denial, for if they deny thorough questioning, they likely are the latter.  Your ability to ask fundamental questions will help expose the legitimacy of institution, or their disease.  One thing is certain, deception will come wearing the garments of friendship, love, good advice and care, it must do this to commandeer identity, then anchor it somewhat invisibly to fear.

To Question is The Answer

IMG_4349_2

To not fear question is the answer to perceptual and other problems in cognition; but who holds the key to opening true realities doorway of perception?  This battle in heaven will decide for you which side wins.  Consciousness, that area in which we operationally perceive our world, is under pressure to surrender, to align with the outside and inside realities; either it surrenders to reality and wins, or it surrenders to an ideology and is taken hostage.  It is in our unabashed ability to question where this truth will play out.

The decision favors who or what is actually in control of ones soul; is it rightly ones own spirit connected to the All of Life, or in some definitions to God; or is it ideas and or books given to us that claim to represent the all knowing wisdom of Being that happen to require experts to tell us what things really mean?

You are the warrior in this battle over heaven.  You decide if you stand for light and understanding; or exclusion and seemingly endless explanation, making you a kind of servant to someone else’s thoughts and alleged expertise.  This awareness is achieved by questioning, as the mind was intended as a guide to truth.  For love and belonging to Life to be true, it is necessary to care for the unknown as well as the known.

This is truths dictate; questions must be asked for deeper understanding to be held. Anyone or anything trying to prevent critical thinking out in the objective open, unhindered by bias or presumption, is trying to prevent Light from illuminating.  That example will be most telling, despite the likely denial.

The denial is great; yet reality is always greater, for what is real exist on its own terms and not ours.  To align with It, I must surrender my own illusion, to win what is my true life.  To this ultimately most simple of task; most natural of pursuits; love is the answer.  But don’t believe me; your love is your answer.

True love (for you, or for and of God) is never afraid of question.

One Creation

One Existence

One Setting of you

.

One earth is here

One breath of air

One Place to be true

One definition ensues

One view in ones eyes

One heart to conceive

One Union divided

Ones dreams forgotten

One destiny reprieve

One Holiness becomes

One sojourners soul

One purpose revealed

One answer in many

One heart for receiving

One Love once concealed


God vs Satan

Since I do a few spiritual and religion oriented post, and am known to blur the distinctions between Life and Spiritual and Cosmological perspectives, I get blog views from the strangest searches, like: Would God beat Satan in a lightning match?img_3350

Kids I guess.

Anyways. To distill the Whole God vs Satan, and or Good vs Evil conundrums spinning the cosmic wheels in some minds at least, try this one:

God is Love, Truth and Understanding (what is manifesting Being). In other words, beyond a word, the Real connection amidst the Real aspects of Existence. Satan, or evil, can be said to be made of Alienation, Separation and Ignorance. (I often capitalize things that really are profound in their nature.)

Since we are able to be creative in an enhanced way; our mistakes, errant imaginations, incomplete conclusions and otherwise unwise presumptions will create a problematic relationship with Existence. Yes, survival creates a challenge of the unknown future, but acting from ignorance creates problems that will appear anti-life to us. Especially when I see them in someone else. We will draw conclusions from our conditional and situational comprehension of the Real nature of Reality.

Until these sorts of endemic perceptual reality problem conflicts are understood for what they are, we remain in Big Trouble, call it what one will. Pre existing cultural narratives of this “Battle” between understanding and ignorance provide us with stories and explanation of this conflict. The inherently subjective nature of these stories, will themselves face the judgement of Truth, even though we may not comprehend it. Same for whatever I say here. I do presume Life, including you and me, are on a mission and a manifestation experience somewhat beyond our complete comprehension.

That What Is Is

We can imagine Reality to be most anything. What Reality Really is, is, no matter what you or I think at any moment. But we will at any moment likely be tilted toward truth or falsity, and likely not necessarily know for certain which. Later, we may come to know by deeper understanding, or orienting our view toward what Understandings View would be by a rational dialectic. If the Universe of Being is not rational, well then, there is not much point in communicating, for we could not know when we know anything that persist.

As for a battle with lightning? Lightning is. The “battle”, if one could call it that, is over mostly static electrical charge, but in my mind I could imagine it as something of other motivation and intent.

The Cosmic Battle Within

As for ideas of God vs Satan, we need not look any further than our own mirror. Every moment a choice for orientation; toward understanding more, or not. Toward loving more, or not. I, we, are who impose the conditions on these things, and not someone conveniently outside of us.

To understand more, we need look more deeply, connect and perceive more. We already likely know how not to do this, and face the consequences now and again. Emotional jumps of logic are notoriously self defensive and wrought with potential self defeat—if reality is transgressed. As a young man once said; ‘You want love in your life, then love someone, don’t tell us how you don’t have love and are suffering, love someone.’

There is the battle courage, the change of heart that opens a Whole new life. But doctrines that make it all so complicated that we need interpreters and others to allow us to do or not to do this transformational work spiritually? You need someone else’s permission to live your own True Life? The very premise is based upon a contextual self construct of unknowing, making a kind of darkness the guide.  Perhaps pursuing the true nature of Light is a better way toward discerning the path.img_3357_2

Different stars

but Light is One

scattered planets

gravity from One


One Love of Life

each before one

accept or regret

your journey of one

doubt and pain

sums up separation

reaching across time

now’s destination

care before need

Light from inside

dare to be freed

One does not hide

add to It or take

asleep or awake

here there begun

divided by One
