As we search for a deeper understanding of our existence, trying to grasp the Big Picture of what’s really happening out there, there is a wealth of information at our fingers. We can surf websites, turn on the television, listen to the radio, and a plethora of voices, opinions, and reported activities are instantly available for our review.
When it comes to the News in particular, we are warned we must be aware of Fake News. Anything outside of mainstream media may be labelled Conspiracy Theories and condemned as being nonsense without substance, while those who have journeyed down the rabbit hole, frequently believe the mainstream news is the biggest source of contrived information—a portfolio of propaganda which favours the plans of Corporations and Elite. So, if alternative media is fake, and the mainstream news is contrived, we must be surely left wondering who can we actually believe?
When we absorb information and believe it to be true, we place trust in the source of the report, and this trust is for us to actively contemplate as we try to discern the real Truth. Information can be manipulated, results skewed, events staged, details omitted, and outright lies so easily told. So if we haven’t witnessed an event first hand, we can surely never have absolute Knowledge on the subject, we can only have Belief.
And in my view, beliefs are the most dangerous territory available to us. When we take a belief on board and harbour it as our Truth, it’s easy to find conflict with others who are passionate about their views. We can share research and second hand information with vigour, but without hard evidence, people can always counter our theories with opposing information, and our beliefs can be shaken until we witness something which gives us absolute proof. And after we have our own Knowledge, our resolve becomes firm—others can believe as they wish, but Knowledge confirms to us that we don’t need to doubt our own personal Truth.
In Politics, we see never-ending conflict, and for every party who ventures a campaign, there’s another party ready to counter it—eager to explain why their rivals are wrong. Some people believe Donald Trump is a hero, others see him as a complete idiot, and every argument put forward can be compelling and interesting to hear, as we scramble through the varying media sources trying to get to the bottom of what’s really going on.
If the people proposing a Truth have ulterior, hidden motives, then the information they share becomes propaganda, which is introduced into society to bring about a certain mindset in the public—one required to support their subsequent actions planned. And propaganda can be so easy to believe when presented with firm conviction and issued by a source we’re encouraged to trust.
Clearly, we must be so savvy these days as to who we put our trust in, and we must be prepared for the event that even those sources we believed were righteous may be subject to corruption. If England’s worst known paedophile was a children’s entertainer knighted by the Queen, then surely caution should be employed with anyone and everyone who holds a position in authority—power always has the ability to corrupt, and no human can be trusted purely based upon the letters that surround their name.
When we’re told that we should be concerned about some activity that is happening and fear is induced, believers can devote time to trying to assist in rectifying the issue they’ve assessed to be true. But unless we have Knowledge on an area, unless we’ve witnessed the problem first-hand, how can we ever be completely certain that we are focusing our energy in the right direction?
At one point, society believed the Earth was flat (and indeed a few are still persuaded by this theory), some suggest the Earth is hollow and that civilisations live in the interior of the planet, energised by a central sun at the Earth’s core. But unless we’ve personally journeyed into the central Earth realm, how can we ever personally venture that we have Knowledge on the subject?
As I wade through the tides of information out there, I agree we should discuss our beliefs, but I don’t personally wish to ever argue over whose belief is right or wrong—where I believe something, I will always carry an element of doubt, whilst I wait to see if my belief is right or wrong. It is only where I have first-hand Knowledge myself, will I convey absolute conviction over a subject.
And for me, this is where, in Spirituality, I find my ultimate Truth. For I have experienced countless events that showed me directly that there is more to life than I originally believed or was taught at school. My science books told me I had five senses, and it’s only with life experience that I have perceived that the list of senses taught was incomplete. As I live through weird and wonderful episodes that don’t conform to the status quo, I form my own Knowledge that I can put into the mixing bowl of life for others to consider.
And as we each live our lives, we can prove to ourselves that the Spiritual Insights presented in the Celestine Series are True—because we’ve seen, felt, or smelled spirits, we’ve recognised Synchronicity at work, we’ve experienced Karma, and we’ve felt the connection to the divine source of Love. When we share our own Knowledge with other like-minded people, it’s amazing how many step forward with their own personal stories which back up our Truth. And, in these circles, we can find comfort that we are not alone in what we’re experiencing, we’re not delusional, we’re not crazy, we are simply all recognising the Matrix for what it is, and becoming empowered in our existence as Spiritual Beings.
