The Positivity of Objectivity and the Time of Transition

Every once in a while I get a message  or comment on facebook from someone asking me why I have such a “negative” view of the world, referring to some of the posts and articles I put up on my wall. He or she then goes on telling me that I should “lighten” up, be more “positive”, focus on “love” and the good things life has to offer, because we create what we “see”.  I usually respond back by asking, what is so negative about posting information that exposes the lies we’re being fed and told, be it about 9/11, Zionism, the genocide in Gaza, or the fact that many people in places of high power (political, corporate, religious or even in science and media) are psychopaths with no conscience who couldn’t care less about your or the earth’s well-being?

This is not being negative, but simply showing the situation as it is. Anyone who is willing to do a bit of reading and research without being attached to a conditioned world view can see this. Moreover, these topics and how they affect us and the world at large won’t go away by ignoring them or by focusing on more “pleasant” aspects of our reality. Actually by ignoring them, one is doing more harm to the world and feeding entropy as one is putting oneself in a subjective tunnel vision of wishful thinking instead of becoming more objectively aware and seeing the world as it IS, not as we like it or assume it to be.  As I wrote in another article: a “shift in consciousness” and “awakening” implies a higher state of awareness, which means to become more aware of it all, which implies again to see the world and oneself more objectively, without blinders on. This doesn’t happen by itself, but requires sincere effort and work to separate truth from lies, within and without.

“Conspiracy theory” or business as usual?

The truth about the topics mentioned above and others doesn’t fit into many people’s preferred world view and hence many of them deny it or judge it as being “negative” without having sincerely looked into it themselves. Some say that these are ridiculous claims and there is no proof but just “conspiracy theory” nonsense.

The other day I got into a discussion with someone about 9/11. Having had many such “discussions” before, I was very reluctant to get into it, especially on facebook and I should have listened to my intuition in retrospect. However, I gave it the benefit of a doubt and even posted a “disclaimer” based on my experiences from previous unproductive discussions with the hope that this time it would be different:

When getting into discussions about 9/11 or similar topics, I’ve found that most people:

  • don’t read the links/information provided.
  • do “selective reading”and have “selected hearing” and do not address what has been ACTUALLY said. In other words, many people “talk” without “listening” first.
  • make quick assumptions and hasty conclusions
  • twist words around and read into words something else than what they actually mean.
  • are not aware of their own conditioning, tunnel vision and how it results in lack of critical thinking, lack of objectivity and logical fallacies.

To make the story short, after many posts back and forth, all of the aforementioned issues happened. He didn’t read the articles and links I provided and if he did, he distorted the content, focusing on one point, but ignoring many others, resulting in assumptions and all kinds of ridiculous projections into what I was presenting. The same person then also claimed that he had reviewed “hundreds of hours” of material relating to 9/11 and has come to the conclusion that the official story must be true and there is not such thing as “conspiracy theories”! He suggested to me to focus more on positive change rather than looking into irrational conspiracy theories and blaming others which essentially just feeds the “us vs. them” paradigm.

Let alone the fact that the official version is a “conspiracy theory”, I question anyone’s ability of critical thinking if one claims to have reviewed “hundreds of hours” of material relating to 9/11 without seeing that there are maybe some issues with the official story. I think we’d also be well advised to question the oversimplified idea of “we’re all one” on this level of reality and consider the fact that not everyone is the same inside, hence, stop projecting qualities on political leaders (and others) they simply may not possess. There seems to be a huge denial or blind spot going on about the idea of “we”. This has nothing to do about “us vs. them”, but understanding how complex humanity actually is, what we choose to believe/wish for and what we avoid to look at and confront, within and without. However, the trigger word which actually prohibited a constructive discussion from the get-go was “conspiracy”, which he couldn’t look past.

“There is simply no doubt whatsoever that Mossad and elements within the US government carried out the 9/11 false flag attack. To even entertain the official version is to indict oneself of lunacy. Fact is that the official version of 9/11 is a “conspiracy theory”. Furthermore, it is the most ridiculous “theory” of them all.”

- Ken O’Keefe

The word “conspiracy” is a touchy word with much weight and all kinds of false projected meaning and nonsense attached these days, just like the words “Freedom”, “Love” or “Truth”. People shy away from “conspiracies” or ridicule them right away, because it upsets their sensibility, world view and essentially exposes their fear of “not being in control” or that someone or something else may be. Most people reject something without understanding it and then distort it, which usually leads to generalizations and misconceptions. This article gives a good insight into the meaning of “conspiracy”:

“The first thing we want to think about is the fact that the word “conspiracy” evokes such a strong reaction in all of us:  nobody wants to be branded as a “conspiracy thinker”; it just isn’t “acceptable”; it’s “un-scientific” or it’s evidence of mental instability.  Right?  That’s what you are thinking, isn’t it?
[...]
Have you ever asked yourself why the word evokes such an instantaneous emotional reaction? Have you ever wondered why it stimulates such a strong “recoil”?  After all, it is only a word.  It only describes the idea of people in “high places” thinking about things and doing things that manipulate other people to produce benefits for themselves.  Certainly, everyone “knows” that this happens all the time.

Historian Richard M. Dolan studied at Alfred University and Oxford University before completing his graduate work in history at the University of Rochester, where he was a finalist for a Rhodes scholarship.  Dolan studied U.S. Cold War strategy, Soviet history and culture, and international diplomacy.  As an expert, his opinion of “conspiracy theory” is that from a historical point of view, the only reality is that of conspiracy. Secrecy, wealth and independence add up to power.  …Deception is the key element of warfare, (the tool of the power elites), and when winning is all that matters, the conventional morality held by ordinary people becomes an impediment.  Secrecy stems from a pervasive and fundamental element of life in our world, that those who are at the top of the heap will always take whatever steps are necessary to maintain the status quo.
[...]
The very label ‘conspiracy’ serves as an automatic dismissal, as though no one ever acts in secret. Let us bring some perspective and common sense to this issue. The United States comprises large organizations – corporations, bureaucracies, ‘interest groups,’ and the like – which are conspiratorial by nature. That is, they are hierarchical, their important decisions are made in secret by a few key decision-makers, and they are not above lying about their activities. Such is the nature of organizational behavior. ‘Conspiracy,’ in this key sense, is a way of life around the globe.

Objectivity and Subjectivity

There also seems much confusion about what is supposedly “positive or negative”, “subjective or objective”. Some people claim that there is nothing like “objectivity” and all is subjective. Everything depends on how we look at things and quantum mechanics, so they say, shows us that there is no objective reality or truth, but there is only “my” or “your” truth and we create our reality by the thoughts we have, what we like to see and what we focus on. But is that really so?

I certainly do not claim to be an expert in quantum mechanics, however, it seems that the science of quantum mechanics has been oversimplified into sales-bits in the new age arena and movies like “The Secret”.  This doesn’t mean throwing out the baby with the bath water, as our perception seems to have an influence on reality, but maybe it’s not as simple as we have been made believe by many bestselling “self-help” gurus these days.

Here’s a little insight into quantum mechanics by theoretical physicist Lawrence M. Krauss and published in ‘Scientific American’:

“No one intuitively understands quantum mechanics because all of our experience involves a world of classical phenomena where, for example, a baseball thrown from pitcher to catcher seems to take just one path, the one described by Newton’s laws of motion. Yet at a macroscopic level, the universe behaves quite differently. Electrons traveling from one place to another do not take any single path, but instead, as Feynman first demonstrated, take every possible path at the same time.
Moreover, although the underlying laws of quantum mechanics are completely deterministic – I need to repeat this, they are completely deterministic – the results of measurements can only be described probabilistically. This inherent uncertainty, enshrined most in the famous Heisenberg uncertainty principle, implies that various combinations of physical quantities can never be measured with absolute accuracy at the same time. Associated with that fact, but in no way equivalent to it, is the dilemma that when we measure a quantum system, we often change it in the process, so that the observer may not always be separated from that which is observed.”

He singles out some abusers of quantum mechanics:

Deepak Chopra: I have read numerous pieces by him on why quantum mechanics provides rationales for everything from the existence of God to the possibility of changing the past. Nothing I have ever read, however, suggests he has enough understanding of quantum mechanics to pass an undergraduate course I might teach on the subject.
The Secret: This best-selling book, which spawned a self-help industry, seems to be built in part on the claim that quantum physics implies a ‘law of attraction’ that suggests good thoughts will make good things happen. It doesn’t.”

And, finally:

For the record: Quantum mechanics does not deny the existence of objective reality. Nor does it imply that mere thoughts can change external events. Effects still require causes, so if you want to change the universe, you need to act on it.”

The question about the existence of an objective truth is a tricky one to answer. Philosophical views on truth and criteria for knowing it vary with the old dispute between rationalism and empiricism. However, beyond philosophical or scientific discussion, there usually seems one element that is barely questioned in more depth: the state of being/awareness of a person which relates to how much objective reality he/she can actually access.

In our current state of being and existence we cannot perceive objective reality fully, however we can work towards objectivity and expand our understanding of reality  and ourselves accordingly. That is the basis of esoteric work which relates to gaining Self-Knowledge in order to raise awareness and consciousness to a higher level of Being.

Subjectivity is the preference to rather consider one’s favorite beliefs than the external world. Such a tendency is generally backed by a strong emotional attachment to these beliefs. Wishful thinking, assumptions and opinions based on reactive behavior directly relate to it. Objectivity is the ability to see things “as they are”, not as we envision them to be, like them or want them to be. The ability to perceive objective reality depends upon one’s ability to clearly receive . To reach a higher state of objective awareness, one must first see themselves clearly and that entails to work through one’s lies, illusions, buffers and self-deceptions.

“The survival of the ego is established pretty early in life by our parental and societal programming as to what IS or is NOT possible; what we are “allowed” to believe in order to be accepted. We learn this first by learning what pleases our parents and then later we modify our belief based on what pleases our society – our peers – to believe.
[...]
One of the first things we might observe is that everyone has a different set of beliefs based upon their social and familial conditioning, and that these beliefs determine how much of the OBJECTIVE reality anyone is able to access.

Suffice it to say that, under ordinary conditions of reality, we almost never perceive reality as it truly IS. There are thousands of different little “hypnotic suggestions” that have taken hold of us from infancy on, that determine, in any given moment, what we believe or think or think we believe or believe we think.”

- Laura Knight-Jadczyk

It’s easy to over-philosophize the idea of objectivity vs. subjectivity  without considering some very practical applications. For example, regardless of what one believes to be “one’s truth” or what one is thinking about and visualizing, if you walk off a cliff, won’t gravity pull you down? Isn’t one plus one two, and not three? Is the world round or flat? Consider the usual experience of romantic relationships where we at times fall in love with our projected image of a person based on wishful thinking and then find out later, usually after the emotional chemical high is over, that the person is not who we thought he/she is. The reality check is sometimes not very pleasant as our illusions burst like a bubble and the avoidance to accept the other person as he/she is frequently results in all kinds of unnecessary conflicts and hostile divorces. Was it really “love” to begin with if we didn’t “see” the other person (and ourselves) clearly?

And in regards to global issues:  Is the official 9/11 story true or have we been lied to?  Was it a false flag attack? Are we losing our basic rights for our protection from the “terrorists” or is there a different reason? Is the corporate mainstream media under the control of Zionists which suppresses and distorts the real news? Is Obama telling the truth or is he lying? These question can be answered objectively if proper research is done. However, the truth may not necessarily agree with one’s preferred (subjective) beliefs, opinions or assumptions. So it is important not to fall into denial or avoidance when some of our core beliefs are being challenged, especially if one is emotionally attached to them and the ego tries to (unconsciously) defend the lies in order to be “right” as the truth may open up a can of worms one is not ready to handle.

Moreover, no matter how much one tries to close oneself off from the “outside world”, believing that nothing will affect them as long as one focuses on “positive” thoughts and what one “likes” to experience, the bigger issues of the world still have an effect on us all, precisely because we are all one and everything is connected. No man is an island and no one’s reality is isolated from the Whole.

“What makes the YCYOR (You Create Your Own Reality) evangelist fatuous is precisely the fact that all such “personal decreeing”, “positive thinking” and confident imagining takes place in an inevitable context. There are implications! There are repercussions! No one decrees in a personal or private, solipsistic vacuum. There is a variegated World of myriad “pulls” and “claims” coexisting along with the private desires and designs of the given ego-subject.

But “so what?” we hear the die-hard “reality-creator” claim “don’t we remain untouched by those ‘co-existents’ as long as we keep secure in the confidence of our own private deservedness, our own authoritative affirmations and specific commissions of positive thought-re-inforcement?”

No. Man does not live by “commission” alone. This is why you do not create your own reality, but merely generate reality-hypotheses or scenarios which are continuously reflected and tested against the Whole; and the Whole, being inseparable from the Potential of your own innate-global Being, is constituted by the explicit and implicit alike, by that which is produced through active or positive commission and that which results from the gaps, blind-spots and vacuums of interpretive omission. All the lines, potential and actual, exist within one’s being and are inevitably calculated into the total account! This is what it means when we say there’s a context in which all our desire-formulation and “decreeing” takes place.”

- Michael Topper, “Why You Don’t “Create Your Own Reality”

There is an objective truth outside the context of what our little “I” perceives. It seems a tendency in certain Conscious Movements to overgeneralize and distort spiritual “higher” truths and quantum physics with an oversimplification of: All Truth is relative! Hence unconsciously (or consciously) using that explanation as an excuse and justification for the atrocities in the world or for whatever one may want to believe in one’s own little subjective world, no matter how illusory, false and based on pure wishful thinking or emotional projections to the point of even declaring that it is all just about “my” or “your” truth and there is no objective truth.

Obviously we all have our own personal lessons to learn and talents to develop, which could be interpreted as one’s “personal truth”, however that doesn’t exclude oneself from the collective lessons we all “need” to look at if we want to evolve consciously as ONE. In that sense it is important to do this work together (striving towards objectivity) in a functioning network where everyone involved has the same intent and aim: Truth and Objectivity, no matter what it is, without preference. That way we can help each other to become aware of subjective blind spots to assist in our personal lessons and observe the world more accurately by collecting data through observations, feedback and sincere research, using logic and intuition alike (the intellect and the heart), which leads to actions that are in line with the creative principle of the universe. This is an ongoing process as one’s view and understanding will expand, evolve and our awareness and ability to SEE (objective reality) increases and we act accordingly. Essentially that is conscious evolution.

Simply acknowledging that we are all one, separation is illusion and seeing everything as “Light” while focusing on what one believes to be “positive” and at the same time ignoring what one perceives as “negative” does not result in change for the better. Conversely, by insisting on what one would like to see, as opposed to seeing as the world as it is, is coming into conflict with creation, which then results in entropy and MORE suffering on a global scale, not less. A deeper insight into this gives the Event Enhanced Quantum Theory developed by physicists Arkadiusz Jadczyk and Philip Blanchard:

“Our universe seems to be made up of matter/energy and of consciousness. Matter/energy by itself “prefers”, as it seems, a chaotic state. Matter/energy by itself doesn’t even have a concept of “creation” or “organization”. It is the consciousness that brings to life these concepts and by its interaction with matter pushes the universe towards chaos and decay or towards order and creation.

This phenomenon can be modeled mathematically and simulated on a computer using EEQT (Event Enhanced Quantum Theory). Whether EEQT faithfully models the interaction of consciousness with matter, we do not know; but chances are that it does because it seems to describe correctly physical phenomena better than just the orthodox quantum mechanics or its rival theories (Bohmian mechanics, GRW etc.)

What we learn from EEQT can be described in simple terms as follows:

Let us call our material universe “the system”. The system is characterized by a certain “state”. It is useful to represent the state of the system as a point on a disc. The central point of the disk, its origin, is the state of chaos. We could also describe it as “Infinite Potential.” The points on the boundary represents “pure states” of being, that is states with “pure, non-fuzzy, knowledge”. In between there are mixed states. The closer the state is to the boundary, the more pure, more ’organized’ it is.

Now, an external “observer”, a “consciousness unit”, has some idea – maybe accurate, maybe false or anywhere in between – about the “real state” of the system, and observes the system with this “belief” about the state. Observation, if prolonged, causes the state of the system to “jump”. In this sense, you DO “create your own reality”, but the devil, as always, is in the details.

The details are that the resulting state of the system under observation can be more pure, or more chaotic depending on the “direction” of the jump. The direction of the jump depends on how objective – how close to the reality of the actual state – the observation is.

According to EEQT if the expectations of the observer are close to the actual state of the system, the system jumps, more often than not, into more organized, less chaotic state. If, on the other hand, the expectation of the observer is close to the negation of the actual state (that is when the observer’s beliefs are not TRUE according to the ACTUAL state – the objective reality), then the state of the system, typically, will jump into a state that is more chaotic, less organized. Moreover, it will take, as a rule, much longer time to accomplish such a jump.

In other words, if the observer’s knowledge of the actual state is close to the truth, then the very act of observation and verification causes a jump quickly, and the resulting state is more organized; pure. If the observer’s knowledge of the actual state is false, then it takes usually a long time to cause a change in the state of the system, and the resulting state is more chaotic.

In short, everyone who “believes” in an attempt to “create reality” that is different from what IS, adds to the increase of chaos and entropy. If your beliefs are orthogonal to the truth, no matter how strongly you believe them, you are essentially coming into conflict with how the Universe views itself and I can assure you, you ain’t gonna win that contest. You are inviting destruction upon yourself and all who engage in this “staring down the universe” exercise with you.

On the other hand, if you are able to view the Universe as it views itself, objectively, without blinking, and with acceptance of the reality and appropriate responses to how things really are, you then become more “aligned” with the Creative energy of the universe and your very consciousness becomes a transducer of order energy, and your actions are consonant with what is. Your energy of observation, given unconditionally, matched by the appropriate actions, can bring order to chaos, can create out of infinite potential.
[...]
Since Humanity – as a whole – is an “organ for transducing energies onto our planet”, the condition of humanity – as a whole – is reflected by the planet. The suffering of humanity, the lies that humans believe, all have a profound effect on the planet.

VERY IMPORTANT: it is not whether or not one “believes” in good things or bad things that makes good things or bad things happen. It is the factual observation of reality and whether or not it leads to a true assessment or lies.

The effort to view the universe AS IT VIEWS ITSELF with love and acceptance even in the face of what might be termed “horror” can actually lead to amelioration of that horror. To view the universe and to deny the truth and to insist that one can believe whatever one wants to believe and thereby make it so, is to deny reality and contributes to the chaos, the destruction, the suffering.

And so, what is the solution? The TRUTH – as close to it as we can objectively get – MUST be propagated as widely and as soon as possible. That is the only thing that will “save the planet”. Because it is in the creative centers of humanity… that the fate of the earth lies.
[...]
…how do we learn to see the universe objectively, as it sees itself? Another way of putting it is: how do we overcome our own subjectivity? The answer is by mastering the impermanent parts of our personality and bringing them under control of the part of us that is permanent, that part of us that has a link with the Creative force. And in this struggle, we discover that not only do we bind with truth spiritually, but this process also induces a change in our brain chemistry, which can literally lead to a physical transmutation.”

- from  “The Secret History of the World” by Laura Knight-Jadcyk

Love and Light

Some people seem to mistake objectivity for negativity and wishful thinking for positivity. Most of what people see as negative or positive are their subjective projections and opinions that don’t really reflect the world as it is. Without Truth and Objectivity there won’t be a change for the “better”, nor a raise in consciousness, within and without.

In that sense, many well-meaning and good-hearted folks who want a better world actually do more “harm” than any “good” by ignoring and denying aspects of our reality that may not fit into their subjective “positive” world view; instead believing that by shutting the “negative” out and just seeing everything as “One” and “Light”, visualizing, meditating on “world peace” and projecting “love and light”, it will create peace and harmony. Nothing could be further from the truth and that is actually exactly what certain forces, who do not wish humanity to awaken for their own interests, want us to do and believe. It ties in with how religious and spiritual values have been corrupted.

In other words, the ones exposing the lies and atrocities in the world, the ones looking at the world as it is with all the different “faces of god” including the unpleasant ones which many people perceive as “negative” and hence like to ignore, are actually doing LIGHT WORK in the true meaning of the word: Making the darkness conscious, raising awareness and shining LIGHT into it. Light is information and knowledge, not just making things “light” in the sense of being “nice” or “kind” and “loving” without saying anything “bad” or “heavy”.

“When we talk about compassion we talk in terms of being kind. But compassion is not so much being kind; it is being creative [enough] to wake a person up.”

- Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoch

This contrived “niceness” seems also very common in today’s conscious movements, where people don’t want to say anything “negative”, in their subjective understanding of it of course. In general, some folks hide behind a “social etiquette” and mask without wanting to say anything “bad” or touching on any “taboo subjects”. They speak around issues in order to be spiritually or politically “correct” so as to “not step on anyone’s toes”.

The other day I was at a yoga class and the teacher finished the class with a prayer in which she also said: “Let’s be conscious of what we say, and if we don’t have anything nice to say, it’s better to be silent”. That is a good example of the distortion of “being conscious/aware” and relates to the fact why more spiritual-minded people don’t look at the world more objectively, speaking out and standing up against the lies and psychopathic ways of our culture. Because it’s not “nice” to say that Obama is a pathological liar and that there are no “free elections” in the US. It’s not “nice” to state that Israel is committing genocide in Gaza or that there are some serious issues with the man-made Global Warming “science”. It’s not “nice” to point out that 4- 6% of humanity have no conscience by birth and are mostly found in positions of power. It’s not “nice” to claim that 9/11 was an Inside Job. Not only is it not “nice”, it’s also being “negative” according to some people’s convoluted perception, hence one should not say anything at all. This attitude of contrived “niceness” essentially creates the conditions for conformity, complacency, ignorance and the atrophy of critical thinking.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that one should be mean, aggressive and rude or push information on someone who didn’t ask for it. It simply means to be sincere and honest with conscience and awareness. There is a time to speak up and a time to be silent. And sometimes you have to be direct, call a spade a spade and give the lie what it deserves: the truth,  regardless of what others may think, even if it doesn’t sound “nice” and it doesn’t conform to what someone “likes” to hear. You can be considerate and still speak the truth, even if others see it as “negative” from their conditioned point of view.

“Cowardice asks the question: “Is it safe”?
Expediency asks the question: “Is it politic”?
Vanity asks the question: “Is it popular?”
But conscience asks the question: “Is it right?”
And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular
but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one what is right.”

- Martin Luther King, Jr.

It is also interesting to note that if there is something presented which may not look that “pretty” it is sometimes judged as “fear-mongering”. If a person reacts to certain information with fear, maybe he/she needs to examine it within themselves before blaming the ones who are just showing something which not many people really have looked into or are even aware of? I’ve said many times that I do not like what I’ve come across, but it is there and it doesn’t go away by ignoring it. Sure, there are some folks out there who do engage in fear-mongering purposely with all kinds of unfounded claims and disinformation (even making money off it), so discernment is key as usual.

However, “discomfort” can serve a purpose. There is a chance for healing from a shamanic and esoteric perspective. It is good to put oneself into a state of vulnerability when looking at the “darker” aspects of our reality or of oneself; truly looking at it, facing it and not giving the ego a chance to explain it all away, so we can go back to our comfort zone and ultimately back to “sleep”. It is not about buying into fear and panic either. 
Sometimes things need to be confronted without automatically defending our beliefs and views , allowing us to look at the world and ourselves more objectively. That’s part of the awakening process and it entails separating truth from lies within and without.

Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.

- Frantz Fanon

In the end most people are only afraid of the unknown and what they don’t understand. Once we make the effort to deprogram ourselves from our conditioning and gain knowledge and understanding within AND without (shine “LIGHT” into darkness!), our awareness/consciousness rises and we start to SEE in alignment with who we truly are, beyond preference, wishful thinking or denial and then can act in alignment with our Higher Self and the Universe.

Something that I hear a lot these days as well is the need to be more “”heart-centered”, loving and compassionate. I agree, obviously we all need to connect more to our heart, show empathy and compassion, especially extending it the whole world, beyond our close friends and family. But what does that really mean? Many people seem to associate love with emotions and feelings or “niceness”, but is it not more than that, like a higher state of consciousness/being? We seem to mistake many things for “love” and even judge the intellect as “bad” (mistaking it for the monkey/predator mind), hence many suggest that we should “think” with our heart and do what we “feel” like doing, which mostly results in mere self-deception and lack of critical thinking. It’s about aligning the heart with the intellect, intuition with logic, mysticism with science.

“Love is not sentiment. To be sentimental, to be emotional, is not love, because sentimentality and emotion are mere sensations. Sentimentality, emotionalism, is merely a form of self-expansion. To be full of emotion is obviously not love, because a sentimental person can be cruel when his sentiments are not responded to, when his feelings have no outlet.”

- Jiddu Krishnamurti

Love is where there is Truth, Knowledge and Understanding, seeing the world as it and ourselves as we are, not as we like it or want it to be. Love is Light is Knowledge. To love we must know. And to know is to have light. And to have light is to love. And to have knowledge is to love. We need to use the heart AND the intellect, de-condition ourselves and act accordingly in order to raise consciousness. If we truly love life, the world we live in and want positive change, then this also implies to look at the issues and injustices in the world so many of us like to ignore or deny. This is not being “negative”, but the work to be done during this Time of Transition.

“History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people….Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”

- Martin Luther King, Jr.

The more we are collinear and  SEE the world as it is and act as ONE, the “easier” the transition to a better world for all of us. We do create our reality and our consciousness has an effect on the outside world, but we need to be in alignment with the Whole/Universe, otherwise we will increase entropy and chaos, which also manifests in earth and climate changes, as we can see already happening. Increased awareness combined with action based on truth could mitigate any upcoming catastrophes that seem to be right over the horizon. It’s up to each one of us and all of us together.

“With the approach of the era of the Holy Spirit, everything must be gradually brought to the light of day, not only the secrets of the laboratory but the deepest meanings of esotericism. The same must happen with illusions, errors and lies, which must also be revealed so that they can later be rectified.

The world is suffering from a lack of harmony which gets deeper on every plane, and this is a serious danger to the moral and spiritual recovery of humanity. It also involves a serious risk of failure in the last stage of this Time of Transition that we are now entering, If this risk is not overcome, the Deluge of Fire awaits us. We will have to make an immense effort to ward off this fate, and we have very little time in which to do it.

Man has only himself to blame for the greatness of the effort needed: this is a result of his obstinate refusal to heed the warnings that have been addressed to him time and again by the Divine Voice, just as he continues today to blind himself to the fact that the Deluge of Fire is being made ready.”

- Boris Mouravieff, Gnosis II

    Thanks for this post Bernhard. Although i’m not online as often as I used to be, i’m glad that I can always come back and read your blog when I need to. Sooooo much to comment on… but i’d rather not right now : ) We shall meet again soon. You are very much appreciated!

  • Yvette Ford

    Hello Bernhard,

    It’s 1:30 in the morning and I just read your blog. I have been accused of being negative and it has bothered me quite a bit because I know I’m not. I’m that person who use to read every self help/spiritual guide to a better life and attended several seminars with their own inspirational language, etc. Today I call most everything Bull$#*@! Most of my so called negativity began when a much loved and appreciated guru began instructing people on how to live the life divine and get what you want and how the universe will support you in your hopes and dreams if you just do xyz… I use to meditate, recite affirmations, chant, communicate regularly with a guru, and sometimes I felt really positive about some of this stuff. BUT, I noticed that I never really got any of the stuff I was asking for, no matter what I did or do currently. I actually see much of the world the way it is and it isn’t pretty. My life isn’t pretty. It’s a mess. I saw Gangaji and was delighted to hear her say “Include everything.” She gave me permission to “be.” The good the bad and the ugly. My ego is trapped in people pleasing and so I’m still attached to what people think and I often have the I’m a bad person dialog within when I’m pointing out things that aren’t working. Like the fact that at Starbucks I order a coffee, which includes the cup, the lid and a koozie. I also ordered a piece of banana bread which came in a bag. My negative viewpoint is that the service person asks me if it’s for here or to go? I say it’s for here and I get all those items that are being mass produced and thrown away within the hour, when I could have gotten a reusable cup and a plate. I thought I really liked Starbucks because they deal in some fair trade, but everywhere I look, all I see is waste and the raping of resources. But everyone loves Starbucks, including me…

    Thank you!

    Bravo! The alarm to wake up should be going off. This entire piece is similar to something I have been trying to open my fellow Christians eyes about. That scripture confirms exactly your points. 1. God uses all things (good and bad) for his purpose. 2. Faith without works is DEAD. 3. We wrestle (FIGHT) not against flesh and blood(each other); but against rulers,authories, powers of this dark world…
    If God himself did not see it important, then why the warnings and instruction to have eyes that SEE and ears that LISTEN? Put on the belt of TRUTH. Shield of FAITH. If WE are not supposed to be the ones Fighting these battles!!! Finally our weapon is the sword which is the WORD. your words have power…use them people!
