Truth and Understanding vs. Perception
Chapter 5, pages 99-104
“The truth is dead,” according to our Mentors. The evidence of this truth? The absence of peace. We are unable to even recognize truth any more. The truth has been transformed into what we are willing to accept, but is not based on an understanding of value. There are many deceivers and many hidden agendas. How do we sort through all that is going on now to find the truth? Our ability to survive as a race involves our evolving to a higher learning state. When we all understand what the truth is, peace will reign.
Truth is both seen and unseen and involves the ability to read vibration and emotion. Truth is given where an expectation of something in return does not exist: no transference of money; no rising to positions of power. We have to realize that we have been programmed and start asking ourselves the hard questions: the what is? The who, what, when, where and why will lead us to the conclusion that, in most cases, there is no substance to the claims that others are making.
The chaos, anxiety and fighting that surrounds humanity today is an affirmation of the misperceptions that pervade our societies. Legends continue, being passed from one generation to the next, as if it is a part of our DNA, creating fear of many things that, in reality, really don’t exist. The minotaur is used in this example, man being afraid of this beast and its piercing horns, yet the minotaur doesn’t exist. We hold onto these legends, often due to its perceived excitement. Which lasts longer, the truth or a perceived excitement? This has caused man to be deflected from the true path of understanding all of Creation, as God our Creator intended.
Our misperceptions are also wrapped up in our ego and our perception of self-worth. The creation of a dictator is a good example. In this lesson, we are told the rise of a dictator involves three prongs: 1) The developing dictator felt as though they were forgotten as a child, leading to a magnified need for recognition and a misperception of self-worth. 2) As this person rises to a position of power, innocent people project their own desires to him or her, their strong desire “to be somebody,” vicariously experienced through another person, projecting their energy to the rising dictator. 3) A negative entity is attracted to the strong projection of the ego and begins to influence the thought process of the dictator, leading to the resulting atrocities.
Frustrated, spiritual teachers wait idly by to communicate higher conceptual understandings through thought waves, the “oscillations of a Creative Force,” while we continue to repeat the same lessons over and over, learning little from the past. Other cultures have evolved to higher states of learning where they no longer have to repeat as often. It is time we learn to do the same. Truth has to be maintained in the direction of Universal Law that mandates that higher conceptual learning must occur.
We are living our lives based on perceptions, the remnants of the past learning cycle, listening to others tell us what is, rather than finding the real truth for ourselves. The truth will be found from a holistic view and after a complete analysis of all information available, the viewing from all sides of an event (angular learning) and the review in hindsight of all decisions and actions that lead up to a final event. It comes from the guidance we receive in the form of thought waves coming from a Creative Force, an entity delivering a higher understanding, the “inoculous,” through quiet contemplation and meditation. Once our understanding expands, we will be moved to a higher state of enlightenment. May love and peace be with you on your journey to truth.
We recommend that you now return to the book, The Augmentation of Man, a Study in Renaissance, and read pages 99-104 that correspond to this blog. Allow time to contemplate, re-read as needed. Have patience, it does get easier. This translation is reflective of our current level of understanding. Perhaps you can find an even more profound one!
