Hijacking of Scepticism to Subvert Critical Thinking
In response to a comment-article on wakingtimes.
Deceit is the assertion of who you are not – as if it is who you are.
It can use any role or appearance including questioning as if it meant to communicate. Some operate within the mask of respectability and others lack not audacity.
Questioning that operates a hidden agenda of statement – is indeed propaganda. True questioning extends true relationship.
To keep the mind open is to at least be willing to consider the possibility that what one thinks or currently believes, may not be true, so as to listen to or consider new information.
Cynicism and gullibility are two poles of self certainty that operate a racket by which an apparent difference maintains a dynamic of changing relationships or ‘struggle’.
However a truly open mind is undefended to knowing – because it is willing to accept it does not know. Knowing is a wholeness of being in which there is no conflict. It is a unified alignment of who and what you truly are – from which to live – not as an authority over your own consciousness – nor of others or the world. But as an embodiment of wholeness.
The mind of hidden secret agenda first points out and away from itself to OTHERS – so as to be relatively less burdened with the consequence of conflicted mind or fear and guilt. Having projected it AWAY, it is then operating as if it were a private separate power upon Life, operating through its characters and script.
Why do we always presume evil intent is in the minds of those who withhold or hide in deceits? Is it because we believe we know ourselves the same? Do we try to excommunicate or deny that part of ourself in ways that often, generally or always give it power in the dark instead of healing it in light?
The first mistake was not the error of false thinking. false thinking evaporates to have never been. It was the attempt to hide the error from God (Light) in order to persist in it while trying to correct ourselves alone.
What else is this but to say we all choose to ‘play in the dark of a mind that covers over its connectedness with self-justified hate?
Beware the assignment of evil to anything alive – even if others allow themselves to be used by fearful and coercive agenda of hidden personal terror.
“Resist ye not evil” said Jesus – who knows that what you focus upon, give attention to, and share in, is what you feed, multiply and become.
Obviously he was not passive with regard to the confusions or attempts to confuse that he met in (his br)others EXCEPT to choose not to escape from or dally within the projected hate and denial of those who felt threatened by what he reflected in them.
He actively put deceit and deception behind him and when meeting the schemes of fear driven trickery, was able to speak from a true presence of mind instead of being baited into personal reaction.
The crucifixion of true Innocence of being is a pattern in our consciousness that we re-enact by sacrificing our own connected joy-in-being and denying and projecting the fact in assertion of victim-hood or powerlessness and grievance seeking vengeance.
The world CANNOT and WILL not hear this for it depends on this dark secret to seem to persist as coercive and conflicted personae on a dark stage.
But You who are the joy in being CAN hear this and let it shift you to see a world of a different foundation than one electing to persist in denial, guilt and fear – and all the progeny thereof.
To think one can really change without uprooting the false is to secretly serve to propagate another crop of tares.
I referred to Jesus as an example – not as an appeal to ‘higher authority’. It is the discernment of one’s own heart that must test any and everything – including what information or guidances to accept or trust.
Coercive intent is the telltale of a hidden agenda. It operates all sides of every apparent conflict to cover over true relation and communication. It does so as your ‘protector’ while you dally in darkness that cannot abide in light.
Turn to light and true protection by giving ONLY as you would in love receive. That is – by pausing from reaction and checking in at the heart in silence of one’s own assertions – so as not to be taken in by what you have truly recognized as something you do not want and does not belong to you.
True governance is uncovered within an inner integrity of being. Unless we live FROM that, we merely enact the shadow roles for fear to persist in feeling validated and thus persist in denying its own redefinition to serve a wholeness of being.
