Methods of Deception
Some paths are more circuitous and painful than others. Knowing what
to watch for can save you lots of unnecessary trouble. This comes
down to matching enthusiasm with discernment and seeking out the
wisdom needed to navigate a clear path.
Here is a list of pitfalls I have encountered on my path to higher
Accurate prophecies are no guarantee of positive intent. Deceptive
sources may make successful predictions solely to win blind
devotion, induce feelings of doom, or create self-fulfilling
prophecies. When positive sources give prophecies, they respect
freewill and present probabilities without macabre coloring or undue
That a body of material contains identifiable truths does not
necessarily make it valid. Deceptive sources may pile a heap of lies
upon an otherwise factual basis, while the sloppier cases simply
slap together fragments of existing material. In contrast, positive
material is always more than the sum of its parts and presents extra
information that is novel, practical, and verifiable.
Preoccupation with lower truths can distract from the pursuit of
higher truths. For instance, obsession with exposing political
corruption can distract from gaining necessary spiritual
empowerment, which is a popular tactic employed by hyperdimensional
entities and their human agents. Positive sources prioritize by
framing lower truths in their higher context.
Just because something contains convoluted trivia, complex jargon,
and voluminous pages, it does not necessarily contain profound
truths. The illusion of profundity sends people on a wild goose
chase for grand truths better found elsewhere. Positive sources are
complex only for the sake of accuracy and conciseness.
The alternative to a fallacious belief system may not always be a
better alternative. Rejecting something and seeking its diametric
opposite could simply be going from self-deception to self-
destruction. Positive sources do not subscribe to this mechanical
binary thinking and instead present balanced solutions that
transcend such false dichotomies.
Deceptive sources win allegiance by stroking the ego and playing
upon insecurities. We are all special and here for a reason, but
these dark forces diminish humility and cater to self-importance by
assigning one grandiose titles, messianic roles, and outlandish past
life histories. Positive sources help you achieve a humble
understanding of your place in the universe without exalting or
repressing who you truly are.
Gifts are not always given with sincerity. Alien abductees are
frequently given psychic powers and even healing abilities, but to
the aliens these are worthless trinkets they don't mind trading for
spiritual and biological ownership over the abductee. Gifts are only
sincere when given unconditionally and selflessly.
Being under attack is not always a sign of being on the right path.
Attacks can sometimes serve as false confirmation in order to cattle-
prod the paranoid into clutching more tightly onto their deceptive
belief system, such as devout Catholics receiving demonic attacks
because they are easily herded this way and fed upon. For those on
the right track, attacks are far more sophisticated; they seek to
undermine faith and pressure one into committing self-sabotage.
Astral deceivers often impersonate impressive characters such as
historical figures, ascended masters, archangels, Jesus, or aliens.
They do this in order to form a parasitical bond with those who
believe this deception, and they go to great lengths to build up
their characters. Material should always be evaluated on its
content, not its source, and deceptive sources will give cunningly
flawed or empty material regardless of their self-proclaimed
Noble intentions can be diverted onto quixotic endeavors. Those with
good hearts can, due to a lack of knowledge or ungrounded idealism,
be led onto a primrose path demanding much time, energy, and
resources in order to keep them spinning their wheels thinking they
are making a difference when in the big picture their talents could
be better applied elsewhere. Discernment requires not letting
subjectivity and wishful thinking mask the warning signs that one is
pursuing an inefficient path.
Group consensus is a double edged sword. While conferment and
agreement between multiple individuals lowers the risk of personal
bias, if the entire group can be entrained into agreeing upon a
false idea, then any individual dissenting on the side of truth will
be rebuffed on the rationalization that an individual is far more
likely to be wrong than an entire group. Personal communion with
one's heart and mind should always take precedence over group
consensus because the truth is within.
Anything good can be shown in a bad light; anything bad can be shown
in a good light. By taking the best promises of a deceptive path and
comparing it to the worst risks of a productive path, the deceptive
path may falsely seem like the optimal choice. Only by examining the
totality of each option can one make an informed choice.
That a method or system "just works" and produces visible results is
no guarantee that the system is ultimately beneficial. What results
you see may be matched by greater amounts of detriment you cannot
see, which is especially true of systems that emphasize substituting
technology, ritual, or formula for spiritual practice, self-
determination, and discovery. The best one can do is consider the
benefits but hunt for the potential shortcomings of a system and
guard against them.
Deception seeks to emulate truth as closely as possible while
propagating just the opposite. It shares the superficial
characteristics of a positive source and hopes the target audience
does not look past the shallow mimicry. Ultimately, something always
tends to feel "off" about these sources despite surface appearances
indicating nothing out of the ordinary; once intuition alerts you,
it is the job of reason to help you zero in on the problem.
