My opening comment is to the article.
The underlying patterning I see is of invested identities that manage conflicts under narrative masking which becomes unwieldy, over burdened, hollow, tired, stale, sacrificial and self-destructive and so we come to the compression back to Source , which we may experience as fear and pain of loss in direct proportion to identifications that are no longer supportable, supported or relevant and helpful to who we now recognise ourselves to be.
Any process of legal disclosures is avoided where bringing into the open has more danger to a systemic corruption, and so behind the scenes, deals are brokered along with non disclosure.
The show must go on
But alas in terms of keeping face and legitimacy of control such as to hold the legal framework that protects them against a collective immune response, and sets societal protectors against the messengers of perspectives that would offer healing rather than sacrificial and destructive ways to buy more time against a true reckoning or just account.
JuraCalling to me:
The complete first paragraph is five lines long yet only one sentence. The terminology and phrases are very difficult to understand.“manage conflicts under narrative masking?”
In the context of the pandemic, what is the conflict they re managing ?
What is the narrative masking? Do you just mean that they re telling lies, ie false narrative?“becoming sacrificial and self-destructive?”
Who or what is ?“we come to the compression back to Source which we may experience as fear and pain of loss in direct proportion to identifications that are no longer supportable, supported or relevant”
Can you explain that a little clearer please.“helpful to who we now recognise ourselves to be”.
What does that refer to ?
My reply to JuraCalling:
My words mean exactly what they say.
I said "manage conflicts under narrative masking ?"
Your inner conflict is masked over by your narrative identity. But unless you notice that, you will act out the mask as if your self. For what you invest in as your protection becomes your self.
(I used 'you' - but not to single 'you' out so much as to indicate a statement you can personally verify. But if you merely 'think about' you will not observe your thought process.
The pan-ic-demic is replicating these symbols as our literal experience.
You can more easily observe cognitive dissonance in others - if you are not under the spell of having reacted to fear and thus emotionally investing identity in its frame.
All narratives operate a self-reinforcement to the underlying beliefs or believed fears' running as perception-response or conditioned behaviours.
That we can align in narratives that truly reflect who and what we are is where we have sanity and coherence and a basis for trust and communication. But the truth is never IN the narrative any more than it is IN the Map or Model of reality.
I said "becoming sacrificial and self-destructive ?"
Lies defended as truth demand the sacrifice of truth. Does this need explaining?
However, the usurping of the mind is not recognised as such in those who ‘know not what they do’ – (cognitive dissonance).
I said ”we come to the compression back to Source – which we may experience as fear and pain of loss in direct proportion to identifications that are no longer supportable, supported or relevant’‘
The Universe Breathes – as cycles within cycles or rather spirals.
But in specific to what I wrote is the expansion of founding ideas that go forth and multiply or are developed along the lines of their interacting themes. When conflicts are held in Mind as part of following multiple themes, they can be ‘partitioned’ or spaced out to buy time in which to explore the experience.
This can be taken in terms of individually or collectively (I don’t mean collectivism). But we are always both AND … (more).
The going forth for experience is lived and in its time and timing is harvested or rendered to its essence - truth is not lost. In human terms we are brought to the focus of having to do more with less and cannot afford the drain of a conflict management mind an so aligning with our lives rather than with the mask, we release what does not really matter to stand clearly in what does. I could put this as who you now accept and recognise yourself to be, for under the identification within imaged concepts, we sought to live the experience of what our signature characteristics, and formative experience, set us in.
The inability to read what I write is not the choice of word and phrase, so much as the non-communication between who we think we are, and who we are. If 'who you are' could reach you without your consent, you would not be able to live your experience, and so you have to freely WANT to listen in the heart more than following the thinking by which to engage a private or partitioned sense of a mind, that may join in the idea of aligning with others to mask in conflict - or - to join in recognition in which the masking falls away or is rendered transparent to the truth of who you are with.
The latter identifies truly - thank you for your questions.
The former invests in masking segregations that lead to competing and conflicting interests. The human experience is the balance and the imbalance - or else balance would be locked on and no freedom would be shared.
The lockdown idea is an attempt to lock on an imposed balance against feared change. Nothing could be more imbalanced! yet within the attempt to make it so is the fear that drives it. Locking in narrative meanings so as to make them 'sacred' or beyond question is the same deal. Terms and conditions asserted as non negotiable under fear or threat of utter disconnection, loss of face or exclusion.
We can read the inner by its accusation onto 'others'.
But we cannot use that as a weapon (without suffering the same measure). Only as a way to access our own unconscious.
I write towards recognising what runs beneath - as a whole and not as another layer of conflict management. So it will not have any support or ammunition for the 'war' - unless your sense of standing in and for life has moved from gaining power by whatever means, to aligning in the power of life from a sane or unconflicted foundation - which will never be arrived at as a result of our own thinking. For that is the basis by which a conflicted foundation is interjected - like a moneylender in the Template, setting a bias on meaning, and establishing it as 'normal' currency.
Running with a false inheritance is a temporary illusion or misidentification. Our debts come home to roost, and what we pay or deny in our self to have what we think we want of need can be completely put out of mind - but into our world.
denials need above all else to meet the light of acceptance. Those parts of ourself that are denied are often framed as threat to our bubble and meet with persistent ongoing denial. Big Brother is also an archetype within us - and yet the word within can be misinterpreted while masking against our projections so as to present a seeming face of unity or self-control over a hidden fear of shame, humiliation or loss of control to what is truly felt - but denied acceptance and movement of being.
The disintegration of a masking narrative identity is a reliving of exposure to 'ancient' or archetypal fears, separation trauma - that never really went away, but were successfully lidded over, at time, for a time in the ever shifting game of musical chairs in which no one wants to lose, and so each seeks their 'salvation' according to where they find support and reinforcement for protection in terms of fears that are largely pre-verbally acquired and not within the realm of our rational thought. Hence, no matter what understandings about this contraction and consolidation to a core of 'control' - it holds much more disturbance than can be rationally explained away, and yet we mostly want to cling to this because rationality is part of our learned sense of filtering or mitigating chaos so as to hold some sort of order over it.
But the true nature of order is discerned within what seems chaotic and this is the call to open and listen more deeply or directly to what is - as it is - instead of defending identity in rationalising that can become insanely irrational - as in 'making us safe' and the whole breakdown of communication and trust to manipulative delusions given priority over any process of communication.
This is arriving at our starting place to know it for the first time - to use TS Elliot's phrase. Or at least is uncovering the original error by which Innocence of being or awareness itself, was lost (or rather, masked over).

I think you mean a lie is a lie.
know not what they do is about not understanding the seriousness of the actions you may be carrying out and not realising the consequences. The quote is from the Bible. It has no relationship to cognitive dissonance if you know what cognitive dissonance is.
The rest is all a bit weighed down with 1990s new age self help quotes and tropes that don t relate to anything or even each other. It s OK in small doses if it s placed in a much larger does of plain English..
My Reply to JuraCalling
No - I mean that a lie identified in, and masked over - set against truth, is 'sin'.
Cognitive dissonance is a modern word for a spiritual death that knows not what it is but thinks it does.
I am not seeking or interested in your marks 'teacher' .
The waking from the dead is for those who choose from a new recognition.
'Even as you do unto the least (but not excluding any) you do unto Me'.
You can think about this as long as you want but until you are willing to release your thinking mind and drop to the heart you act out the judge (set over life and others).
A lie is not always a lie. If I was hiding you from thugs who had no legitimacy under the Law. and was asked if I had seen you, and said no , in order to protect you then I would be aligning in the truth of my heart.
Truth is always true but lies can mask as truth and tempt us to deny our truth and that of others. Peter denied Jesus, under fear that shut down his mind until he heard the cocks crowing the dawn and remembered. This was a great gift that found its time and timing. Not a cause to judge and blame Peter! Fear shuts down the mind such as to know not what we do.
But under a fear-driven survival we do whatever it takes to survive in the masking that fear set us in. The mask demands support and protection as an attempt to protect ourself that cannot really work, but only delay by covering over in diversion, obfuscation and distraction. All about a sense of control that was not needed until fear redefined us in a broken sense of life.
When we are in our joy, armouring falls away by itself.
Because you can categorise everything to blanket judgement such as new age or self-help you can successfully hide what you do not want to hear yet.
If ever the need for truth is as the drowning man s need for air look to where your judgements or rule out what you thought to use to make your masking more solid.
There is a time for all things under the Sun.

Sin is a subjective notion. A lie being a lie is a fact. Keep simple things simple. Trying to make everything profound for the sake of it drowns everything.Cognitive dissonance is a modern word for a spiritual death
It's a two-word phrase that resides within the realms of Psychology. Spirituality again is a subjective notion and can only be speculated about at best. Cognitive Dissonance refers to the anguish experienced when you can t prioritise one of two or more held beliefs that contradict one another."I am not seeking or interested in your marks teacher".
Just as well really. But, for the record, I asked to clarify something you said. That's not teaching, it's wanting to learn."Even as you do unto the least (but not excluding any) you do unto Me. You can think about this as long as you want but until you are willing to release your thinking mind and drop to the heart you act out the judge".
See- you re doing it again. It s as though you throw words into a tumble dryer and pull them out randomly to put in sentences.A lie is not always a lie.
It is. If it were otherwise it wouldn't be called one.
If I was hiding you from thugs who had no legitimacy under the Law. and was asked if I had seen you, and said no , in order to protect you then I would be aligning in the truth of my heart.
Yes, you'd also have told a lie. I think you're trying to talk about a moral dilemma.Because you can categorise everything to blanket judgement such as new age or self-help you can successfully hide what you do not want to hear yet.
All i want to hear is plain English."If ever the need for truth is as the drowning man's need for air look to where your judgements or rule out what you thought to use to make your masking more solid. There is a time for all things under the Sun".
I'll name that tune in 12.
Namaste (or something else mystical)
Mr reply to JuraCalling:
I am assigning 'sin' to the act of giving power and priority to 'subjective notion' when it actively denies relational truth - which is not 'objective' so much as transcendent or upstream to the mental level. But is the basis of a workable objective appreciation of shared experience. All true communication has a communion element. You can honour this or you can mask over it with speculative opinions so as to 'escape' the committent of a real relationship.
When you are ready or willing to receive, you are already in the act of extension. You are only alone in a false concept of freedom to be what you are not.
"Cognitive Dissonance refers to the anguish experienced when you cant prioritise one of two or more held beliefs that contradict one another"What you conceive and believe yourself to be you is belief - the contradiction is with reality - at the conceptual level.
In any moment you may notice that you had thought you were what you were thinking to be, but you are the observer of the thought and the space or awareness of which the thought arises within (and which never really leaves the mind that thought it). 'One-mind' is not monopoly lordship, but the already nature of mind as the extension of resonant recognition. This is already the case and waits on acceptance, Nothing need change for truth to be itself, but our awareness of truth depends on willingness to accept and extend it as the condition that we 'broke' as the split mind of withholding or denial. Thus, releasing the conditions of a masking exclusion undoes the 'social distance' of judgements locking down a mind in its driven subjected 'object identification' under fear, pain and loss.
"The rest is all a bit weighed down with 1990s new age self help quotes and tropes that don't relate to anything or even each other. Its OK in small doses if its placed in a much larger does of plain English..".
I said 'teacher'.
Jesus is attributed the quote: "Even as you do unto the least..." which speaks to the heart of every relationship - but not to masking illusions. Are you calling the Bible a tumble dryer? ;-)
Anything can be called a lie. You don't need a teacher to see that!
Context is the determiner. You 'see' the reinforcement of the framing you are operating from. We all do. To know or be conscious of our purpose is to live our truth, as distinct from an overlay or bias set upon it that cannot truly be lived and shared because it isn't who we are, but can be a way to recognise who we are not, and so choose to disinvest from propping up defences that no longer make sense to who we are now revealed to be.
I would have no dilemma in following my heart. Who worships the form or letter above the spirit of the law is blind to truth and so is unable to recognise truth. Nor can it be told. The 'poor in spirit' inherit the Kingdom from the honesty of recognition that they are poor in Spirit and need truth beyond the mere forms of 'social correctness'. The self-inflated run off with a false inheritance, defended against fear of repossession.
Calling people names such as 'conspiracy theorists, anti-vaxxers, Icke followers, denialists' and etc, are devices against relational communication. Are you only here to troll disinfo or can you understand how such blanket judgements operate? I do not assign blame but extend the invitation to simply notice how the mind works in act - and not as 'speculation'.
'Namaste' is very ordinary in its native culture - but at its root holds the same recognition:
'Even as you do unto your 'brothers', you do unto 'Me' - where 'Me' is the unconditional embrace of your Life.
But the recognition of respect for life, and for the golden rule, opens a way to recognise yourself in others, rather than use them to dump your stuff on, as if to get rid of it and become 'more' as a result of making them 'less'.
