Who are you relying on to inform you of the truth? Is it your neighbor? The news media? Work colleagues? Social media? The government? Your friends and family? Experts? These groups of people may know or report on a small percentage of the actual truth – and who knows where they obtained their information from and what filters, biases and judgments the information passed through.
Second hand information is not reliable. We’ve all played the telephone game. When we’re scared and anxious however, the ‘source’ we’ve been conditioned to believe is telling us the truth, is the one we typically trust. This may or may not be a prudent choice.
Face it – it’s extremely difficult to really know the truth. I’ve come across many people who repeat what they’ve heard from outside sources preaching what they believe to be truth. How do they really know? There’s also the ‘truthers’ who have sprouted up all over social media – also claiming to know the truth. Turns out they don’t.
Just as a quick example: Remember when as kids (in the 70’s) we were told by our government and school officials to “duck and cover” in the event of a nuclear attack? I remember going through the drills – getting to the floor and hiding under my desk. Phew, I’m safe now. It was serious business.
I’m quite sure the government officials knew the real truth – that telling people to duck under a desk in the case of a nuclear attack – was a lame idea, but they said it anyway. As kids, we didn’t know better so we had to trust that these people knew what they were talking about to keep us safe. It’s unbelievable to think that this ‘advice’ was even allowed to be spoken. Just look at what’s happened to kids recently –
We were given a false sense of security. People were still scared, despite the lame advice – maybe because deep down inside they realized they were being lied to. I’m now hearing from people that they are getting confused about the advice given out by the news media regarding the past two years. They are getting disillusioned and say they can’t be bothered to listen to more contradicting information. They see the same people who gave the guidelines, ignore it – and call them hypocrites.
They are aware that something’s not right, and yet their conditioning tells them to continue watching and listening to the confusing information day after day. It’s become an addiction and a hard habit to break because it’s been drilled into us over and over again that we need someone else to tell us what’s going on and for someone else to tell us what the truth is. We are scared and need more information so we go to what’s familiar – duck and cover.
Not knowing the truth (or being lied to) will cause anxiety and fear.
It perpetuates itself. The more we watch and listen to things that confuse us, the more we feel fearful and anxious which leads to needing more information. The fear will not let up and forces us to remain in our past conditioning. We are scared to know and scared not to know – what’s the next disaster?
What happens when we move out of confusion and really get it that ‘duck and cover’ wasn’t good advice? What happens when we learn that we’ve been lied to and betrayed by the people we handed our lives over to for safety? What happens then?
I believe this time is swiftly approaching us. I believe that as a world population we will be forced to face this awful predicament and deal with it – or not. Are you prepared to find out that everything you were told to be true – was in fact a lie? For example: Do you believe humans have evolved from apes? Hold onto your hats!
In the mean time – go within. Detox by taking some time out from listening to outside sources. Get in touch with your own truth. Uncover the layers of conditioning and filters. We all have this capacity within us to know when we are being lied to. We may feel queasy in our gut, or feel like we’re listening to fingernails on chalkboards. There’ll be something about it that just feels off and the more you check in within yourself, the better you’ll become at it.
Really open your mind to new possibilities, step out of the box of conditioning and question everything. What are ‘they’ saying to me now? How does it feel in my body? Probe your mind. How is the advice to ‘duck and cover’ still being used today as a false sense of security? It’s all there in plain sight. When you discover the opponents play book – it’s game over!
Know the truth – end the fear. It’s a worthwhile exercise that will pay dividends in the near future!
