It has been said that all real truth is paradoxical in nature.
(This thread was inspired by another thread, "I'm all for fascism", in which the OP made a very good point which was overlooked completely so far).
We look at the way the government is "ushering in a Fascist Regime" and we get angry. We wish death upon those doing this to us. We believe them all
to be Luciferian posing as Christian or whatever accepted religion, which may or may not be "true". We believe that these things are wrong, and that
by opposing these things, be it with violent opposition or non-violent dissonance/resistance, that we are the "good guys", that we are more
righteous than the enemies of our awareness and our freedom. We believe that We are the truth and the Light, and they are the Liars and the
Consider these questions. What is truth? Is truth intrinsic to all people? Are people wrong to like "the illusion" too much to evolve higher? Are
people who think they know the truth better or more accurate than those that lie or those that believe a lie?
If students in a classroom get back their scores on an algebra class, and some kids get more problems wrong than others, does this mean that they are
stupid? Or have they just not studied and achieved the level of knowledge that the kids who aced the test have? Will that test forever determine their
level of knowledge and intelligence? I don't think hardly anyone would agree that a child who fails a test will always fail all tests in the future.
Most people would believe that, by failing one test, the student would be encouraged to sudy more and gain more experience... allowing him to one day
ace his tests, like the students before him did.
Same goes for right and wrong, good and evil, light and darkness. They are all students and teachers of the same classroom. Some students develop
slower than others. Some children will be bullies. Some nerds of the bullies will use the opportunity of the challenge to strengthen their self esteem
and character. Some teachers teach with harsher methods and punish with seemingly cruel intent. The fact that can't be ignored is that, whether
you're stuck in a classroom with a cruel teacher, or whether your teacher guides you with ease and care.... the end result is the same. You're bound
to learn something!
Even those who play victim to the bullies and the cruel teachers... they may or may not learn how to overcome their own victimization in this greade,
but the fact is that they are always being presented with the opportunity to progress through their struggle. Whether the choose to or not is up to
Messengers of truth VS Deceivers, and everything in between. Is it right to lie? Can someone who seems less evolved and more dishonest still show you
the truth? Are you a "moron" for believing a lie? Are the decievers purely doing a disservice to those who fall for their lies?
I think that everyone can be a student and a teacher at the same time. I think that every wrong has some right buried within it. I think that every
lie and every liar can tell you the truth. I don't think one false claim or one bad or delusional piece of information should ever cause anyone to
stop learning from the source of those things. I don't think lies or truth really exist. I think that one mirrors the other. Truth can show you the
lies, and lies can show you the truth.
A person such as a so-called disinfo agent often mixes lies with bits of truth. Some would choose to believe it all and form a cult of personality
around that person. Some would recognize one lie, and then decide that the rest is junk, so the bits of truth get thrown out with the rest of the
statements. Still others would recognize the lies, and instead of burning the whole field full of weeds, they would spare the field and use their eyes
to look for the flowers of truth sprouting from between the weeds. They would then take those truths, dig them out roots and all from the soil in
which they sprouted alongside the weeds, and plant them in their own garden of truth. None of these people are wrong, in my true opinion (as opposed
to my occasional frustrated outcries). They will all learn the truth, but some choose a long and winding path, some choose to be satisfied with those
who say they've been to the top until they find that climber to be either lying or embellishing, some will lose equillibrium and think they are going
up when really they are going down... and some choose to build their own straight path out of a lot of broken pieces, clearing the brush along the way
and occasionally getting snagged up and out of breath. The ones who see a path in no path at all might not get there first, but they will have learned
the most ways out of any.
Ultimate Truth is the tallest mountain or sky, yet it is still part of the same ground that makes the deepest pit or ocean. The creatures living
contently on all levels of elevation consider where they are at to be home, whether other creatures agree with them or not. Some creatures are nomads
and traverse more ground than others. Some really adventurous creatures love exploring the deepest of depths as well as the highest of heights. They
all exist on the same ground, whether they tolerate each other or not.
I have discovered that there is no right and wrong, no good or evil, no smart or dumb, no black or whight, high or low.... just a common ground which
shifts in elevation. You can learn as much about the Earth from the depths of darkness as you can from the heights of lightness. As well as everything
in between, as well as those who've lost their way, as well as those who've found, as well as those who wish to embellish or fabricate a tale of
being in one place or the other.
Existence is about responding to stimulus, and either way you do it, you will eventually create more stimulus. There's no right or wrong way to
experience, because all of us will eventually experience the same thing.
So if the Fascists come and we seem to have no control, we can just as easily change our point of view and control what we are experiencing in our
head. We have all these different shades of choice, and some will choose the dark side...some will choose the light.
But we're all playing the same game here. It's best to not take it too seriously, because real joy (as we all know, we learn best when we enjoy the
curriculum) comes from being able to experience it all. The liars, the truthers, the bottom feeders, the mountain goats, the Jesus, the Devil, the
free, the oppressed, the chaos, the order, the good, the badd, the ugly, and the beauty of all of it.
My real question is to those who see things as right/wrong, truth/lies, etc....
How can one be worse than the other if they are both showing you the same thing from different angles? How can the full truth ever be known if you
only have a one sided view of what you are looking at?
Is this why Jesus said "Love Thy Enemy"? Or why I believe it was a Roman Emperor who stated "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer"?
A lie really IS a paradoxical thing if knowing it can teach you truth... which in turn gets you to know the lie better.... which shows you more
truth... ad infinitum!
Somewhere in the middle lies (maybe it does lie) the balance we all wish we had.
Any suggestions on where to find this middle ground? Or is the middle ground, as I hinted to in parentheses, an illusion as well?
Do lies really balance truth? Or are they one in the same thing? It's really up to you. Some would not be satisfied either way.
