Identity, trust and communication in a digital age?

Underneath the 'shock horror' of reactions here (to an article about Government using social network and other logins as  proof of identity'), I wonder what the basis is, or can be, to ensure that identity is in fact what it pertains to be and that information is in fact trustworthy - in an increasing reliance upon digital communication.

The nature of scams, hacks and control is very complex, and without safeguarding, the desires of the moneyed and powerful  (along with opportunists who also find ways to exploit the system), will inevitably prevail.

What IS the basis for trust among us? The 'modern' answer offered was of competing and balancing self interest aka 'market forces'. Lets us all be selfish, but limit its expression with 'incentives'. This purports to be a 'balance' but is manipulated in secret by the most powerful - who control the very financial and legal frameworks within which we operate.

To my appreciation, the basis of our thinking is corrupt - that is - founded in error. This becomes evident in the collapse of functionality in confusion and a paralysis of fragmentation and conflict. We have to listen deeper than anything we think we know.

Who Are You? (or I or We?)
And what is our True Purpose or intent?

I don't feel it is for our tricksy thinking to provide or assert its own answers, but an experience of a greater integrity experienced and embodied. We have to surrender our thinking to know in our heart, and this is a way of life and not a trick to get back on the old track.

The program of human identity that is running, has been running for a very long time, and in an instant and interpenetrating global digital world, is culminating in crisis of awakening - because identity loss or confusion IS such opportunity.

To thinking it would seem that either we establish a system that grows trust and open declared identity, or we allow a system of coercion, manipulation in which to hide, defend against and play out our own part.

Clearly there is that which does not recognize trust or honour life and this needs to be contained whether it is an individual of a corporation - but the means to do that has to embody a culture that does honour life and does NOT war on life with a deceptive intent.

Honesty allows communication to be shared rather than used as a war of one-upmanship, assertion of 'identity' or propaganda and spin.

I don't feel to wait for the world but start now. It may be that a movement for honesty of being would meet persecution, because honesty costs too much for those who set their treasure in the world. But if the choice is to live in fear or truly live what is here to be shared, then what really will be the reward of mere survival in a machine?

Perhaps the time is not quite yet. But it is very near.

Give only as you would in your right mind receive!

Be discerning. Fear absolutely blocks discernment. Fear distorts and manipulates thought.
That which recognizes the extension of trust is worthy in all of us.
Systems or templates of the mind cannot substitute for this quality of relationship - but they can at least be aligned with it.

Cultural renewal comes from the breakdown of the basis of our thinking - which CANNOT control the complexity of life and need not. The attempt to control or coerce creates the dissonance that feeds the mind of control with a self-validation to persist.

Its 'answer' to the threat of exposure is war and death -  because it cares not for anything but its 'self'. This is not a true self but a madness that has a seed in all of us. That is what it doesn't want you to know. That you are hosting its payload not unlike a compromised computer in a spambot. (network of infected PCs that can at any time be activated to perform attacks on the integrity of the system).

Thanks for your attention. Nothing I say has truth in itself - but in a recognition of truth within - is a quality of true communication established within yourself. Well here's a last question: is this quality of felt truth really within your self - or is all that you truly are within and yet one with the truth revealed?

You Are Welcome

I came across one of many religious controversy blogs and its comments in searching out some information on the Archangel Michael - which I have not yet found externally - though perhaps this writing embodies the sword that cuts away the false.

~ ~ ~

Arguments with yourself can be pictured in the world - as the world. As the experience of self over and against a world - over and against an other.
But you cannot argue with yourself - a fiction can only argue with a fiction.
What is it to awaken from the arguments of a two-ness that is not in fact true?
No longer identifying with point of view?

This invitation is not the invitation to construct or to assert or to think, though the mind will persist as the construct of a polarized experience for as long as it is given your attention.

That which Is you, Is That which Knows itself in All Things One.
The ways in which the fictional self gives way to the truth are innumerable. Enjoy your experience as experience, but do not confuse it with truth.

Truth is not defined or determined by a mind or minds in agreement. That is a kind of game in which and by which truth is temporarily forgotten amidst the engagement and distraction of an identification with one's own thinking.

The identification with one's own thinking is the 'self' that wars. What is it to release all such thinking and let truth be known in its own terms, as its own unadulterated 'knowing'?

It is what the mind will refuse to do as long as it can maintain a condition of unconsciousness or darkness in which to 'operate'. None of which is evil in its original curiosity, but which allows a dissonance of evil or 'anti-life' to express as the wilful sacrifice of truth in order that illusion prevail in its stead.

Ultimately, to do what we do not want, hurts. Waking to realize we are hurting ourself, releases the defences against knowing what it is that we do. Defences against love are of our own thinking.

Our own thinking creates a personal experience of a coercive or assertive nature. This seems to meet opposition, because for every such action, there is an opposite reaction. To focus upon the surfaces of forms and the meanings you give them, is to set attention away from the awareness of the choice you are making. But it is running as your choice, in your name and giving you your experience, whether you know it or not.

Thoughts that are accepted and believed without the consciousness of the heart's discernment do not know You; do not extend You, or share You.
Lonely is pain of an unshared heart.

Beneath the overlay of thought and its experience in time, You are all that You are - and have not become something 'else', separated or conflicted.
Our identification with guilt and fear makes a very tricky mind that cannot be beaten, but can be disregarded.

What we appreciate or give attention to, appreciates. By following the true desire of the heart, conflict is starved of support. It fades and its perspective fades as a condition of unconsciousness in which to dream endless re enactments of loss and vengeance.

You are welcome.

You have never been unwelcome to your true heart. Discern the nature of the thought that says you are unworthy of love's awareness now. Is it the freedom that it suggests it gives to you? Or is it the freedom to think alone and apart as a 'power' all by yourself.

There are more fulfilling expressions of your true nature!

In Peace


Movement for Change

This is a feedback letter to 'Nation of Change'.

~ ~ ~

I welcome the influx of light and a greater perspective that comes of a willingness to look with innocent eyes. That is, of a willingness to look always anew from a guidance of a presence of being rather than from suggestive thoughts of whatever currency.

I do not join with the deception of 'fighting' evil - for this is how the mind feeds its habit.
Obviously there is a language that can belie the truth here - for to stand with and for the integrity of true communication may seem to be in opposition to the attempt to coerce and manipulate - whether that mind be in the corporatocacy or our own everyday thinking.

But to witness to truth and refuse to 'die' is not to then get our identity and power from the evils that we refuse or repent of.

This is my personal testimony as to why I haven't extended financial support, but it is also a point of feedback that transcends personal points of view.

The addiction of the mind to its own thinking is generally invisible - just as any addiction is invisible in a culture of its own making. The defence of the addict against anything that threatens its supply is maximal!

But when the conditions are so appallingly desperate as to question Everything, there grows a willingness to listen beyond or outside the dictates that thinking set.

Unless the Movement for Change is the expression and embodiment of the Movement of the heart, it has no authority. Illegitimate authorities assert and impose themselves upon our thought, our lives, our world. But True authority comes from true Listening.

One of the first and last defences of a mind in denial is confusion. The information itself is not the message. The way and the feel and the tone of the information is the message - and the information fits the need.
The capacity of the mind to assimilate and interpret is already overloaded.

Therefore we need to speak from discernment to a discerning attention - or we merely increase the noise to signal ration against a genuine communication occurring.

A Basis or Grounding from which discernment can be accessed is called for.
The suggestion of emergency and alarm always operates to negate that Call and insist that one must act first. This is how the contagion of the mind of fear and guilt operates. False promises that entice ever more deep entanglement.

'Stop the world, I want to get off' - is not without a message. But the thinking that makes the world of mutual definition and agreement is what has to be paused, rested of. In the space that this active willingness opens up, Life is revealed. As Movement, as a unified wholeness of being. We have forgotten what we are and our true Source Awareness, in engaging our power of will over the wholeness of being. This error is absolutely not attainable, but is altogether correctable.

There are qualities of Life that are unchanging and which are reflected in the experience of change. They have been conceptualized and abused in self serving ends - yet love, peace and joy remain absolutely shareable - regardless of any languages or systems of thought or teaching that we may personally use.

Communication rests on trust and trust rests on truth. In trying to manipulate truth, we undermine our own sanity and starve ourselves of our inherent Nature.

When a seeming death approaches, or a fundamental change such as our times, rises to awareness despite all or any attempts of control, we are available to an opportunity of awakening from the habitual repetitive reenactment of our past guilt and fear thinking.

I encourage you and your team to reach past the temptations of a polarised mentality and align with the embodiment of a fresh Perspective.

You find it is already active within you - but is tending to be usurped by the old patterns of thought and reaction. It may be that if we each as individuals cannot rise past our own thinking, then what hope for the world? But I would suggest that what I am inviting is healing even of that framework of thought.
One Movement is Alive and it looks like it looks like to a polarized mentality - which then seeks to 'survive' or prevail as a separate entity.
Without wanting to underestimate the attraction of this mind to the dynamics of conflict, I do want to suggest that our thinking, at an almost unconscious level, is creating an interpretive experience that we are mis-taking for our Truth.

Without the inner realisations of awakened responsibility, changing the world is largely a psychic redistribution in which everything is repackaged so as to seem better than before - without any of the causes being uncovered and corrected.

Thank you for your attention. I have included aspects that are 'deep' in that they are not casually available to a skimming mentality.

Life's fulfilment lies not in skimming the surface, but in being - and sharing - the depth.
Whatever we present of ourselves, love is our first and ultimate language of being.
When we think we can 'do' love, we leave our being behind and become indentured to debt!
But if you ARE love (beneath whatever judgements may be in place), then the inheritance you set out with was a false currency, and you are freedom itself. Freedom cannot be mere reaction of programmed conditioning. Freedom cannot be lost to the freedom to wish or believe itself lost!
There is always a greater perspective than what my thinking is allowing or defining and the curiosity to uncover that is the movement of the innocence of Being.

In Peace
