Authority holds those who criticise the official version of the truth to be mistaken, incorrect, negative, counter-productive, or a possible security risk. We can all point the finger to something we alleged to be incorrect based upon an implied greater truth. Authority’s perception and reaction to criticism shows us how open and tolerant they are. If the truth offered by authority or education was absolute then it could withstand ‘any challenge’. The limitations placed upon defined reality are sustained by beliefs and concepts that were created to represent and confine what exists in truth.
The proposed truth for everything that exists within what is perceived to be reality is what is confined to an ‘authorised’ definition. These definitions are not truth. Definitions are beliefs. These beliefs are used to create and incarcerate universal perception. A conceptual truth is merely a hypothesis. The hypothesis is simply a belief that seeks to represent what a believer subjectively observes. When what is observed is defined it is a testimony of perception. Perception is not vision. Perception is the projection of qualities that are used to define what is seen.
When a greater understanding is realised it replaces what was previously ‘believed’. It then becomes apparent that the previous definition misunderstood what it defined. We cannot realise a greater truth whilst we invest our faith in fixed beliefs. Beliefs are the only thing that can incarcerate the contemplative potential of a mind. This is because a belief sits upon the throne of truth within the mind of the believer. A believer cannot accept what he does not believe in. For a believer, the beliefs must therefore prevail as truth. Until a belief exists ‘within the mind’ it cannot control that mind.
What we believe incarcerates our consciousness. Our personal beliefs are held to be our personal truth and once they have our faith in them, they can control what we think and feel. If I offer to give my testimony to someone, they may say ‘I don’t believe you’. This response demonstrates that their mind is conditioned to reject ‘what is not believed’. If a proposed truth can only be accepted if believed it demonstrates that the mind is controlled by what it believes. A belief effectively incarcerates a believer.
The belief system is a control mechanism that sustains defined contemplative parameters that prevent realisation beyond the belief’s dominion. The quality of our life will be strongly influenced by our beliefs. The beliefs are like spiritual software. The quality of my life is up to me. The quality of our life will be a direct effect of the beliefs we choose to worship. If I believe ‘I can’ then I may attempt to do what I believe I can do. If I believe ‘I cannot’ then I cannot. Saying ‘I can’ is not the same as believing I can.
This experiential dynamic continues to exist because the beliefs are worshipped as ‘truth’. Parents, family, friends, educators and governments can tell us and show us many things. We can listen to many competing testimonies all claiming to honestly and accurately describe ‘the truth’. There is no absolute truth. If I say my food tastes good and you taste it and say that it tastes bad, which competing testimony is ‘true’? In this example both of our testimonies can be truthful. This is because my truth is my experience and your truth is your experience.
So if truth exists then it is subjective. Until we choose what, if anything, to believe our minds are free to contemplate competing testimonies which exist as potential propositions. In the moment we choose what to believe we allow what we have chosen to believe to be our counsel, having dominion over our feelings when confronted with what is described and defined by the belief. When confronted with what we have judged the belief takes control over what we feel and a conditioned response is born.
The beliefs we hold about sport, religion and politics autonomously control our thoughts and feelings when we encounter the stimulus that exists within one of those contexts. These ‘conditioned responses’ give enormous power to our beliefs. If free will is to be restored all beliefs must become temporary possibilities, contemplated only until the truth of the experience lets us know how good our meal tastes. If we feel we cannot do something it is because there is a belief that is creating thoughts that are reinforced by feelings or there is an absence of belief that we can.
A witch’s ‘spell’ is a metaphor for the word spell. The book of spells is a metaphor for the dictionary because once the child believes that the word is what it represents the child falls into a real trance. Once the child is in the trance it is unable to see what is real because ‘what exists’ is replaced by the dictionary’s definition. An educated mind is blind to any truth that does not conform that what it believes. An educated mind is blind because once it is exposed to what is represented by a word it can only see the word’s definition.
The freedom of the mind’s expression using words is limited by the words available. Words misrepresent reality by incarcerating it within a word held to be the authorised definition of reality. We are blind because the dictionary’s definition has prejudiced our perception of reality. Perception is the projection of the dictionary’s testimony, which prevents vision. If we believe the word is what it represents then we are ‘spellbound’ and our minds are entranced by the dictionary’s definition of our perceived experiences.
In many parts of the world children are educated to understand words such as ‘enemy’, ‘friend’, ‘colleague’, ‘Arab’, ‘Muslim’, ‘Christian’, ‘Jew’ and ‘politician’. Once we understand the dictionary’s definition of the word our perception replaces our vision and our emotional and behavioural responses have been programmed. Once our behaviour compliantly demonstrates an understanding of the authorised definition we are considered to be ‘educated’. This ensures that when we encounter the truth of what is represented by the word’s definition, we are blind to it.
Even when the truth is revealed many are so controlled by their beliefs that they must say to the truth, ‘I don’t believe you’. Once we define reality we are unable see anything but the definition. Propaganda is used to condemn and ridicule conflicting definitions that may be used in other jurisdictions. Words that define reality can only remain within our mind for as long as we believe them to be our truth. Words and concepts are what limit mankind’s ability to create new ideas. Once the mind is conditioned with a belief system our behavioural expression is controlled.
Each word constrains communication within descriptive parameters that incarcerate perceived ‘reality’ as defined by the word. Education ensures that the knowledge that exists within authority’s jurisdiction is confined to the dictionary’s definition of reality. A dictionary has been used to ensure that man defines the sun, the moon and the stars as dictated by authority. How do we know what we know? We can argue that a tree is a tree. If I say it is not a tree another could argue that our five senses show us that it is something.
We can argue that if what is defined to be a tree is not a tree it is something and therefore exists. We may say the tree exists because we can see it and we can touch it and we can climb upon it. What we have not yet realised is that we are ‘collectively’ creating our perceived reality, including what we define to be the trees within it. The only way we can sustain our environment is if we continue to believe in it. This presents those who wish to control our environment with a risk. If our minds cannot sustain the authorised version of reality, that reality will cease to exist.
When authorities realised it was the collective imagination of the people that created the environment they realised that they could lose control. Authority seeks to create all concepts including what is represented by the word ‘democracy’. In order to keep control the authorities initially used violence, slavery and force. In order to keep control of the environment the authorities needed to control the imagination of those that existed within it. The historical rulers of the earth realised that it was the collective mind of mankind that created and sustained reality.
Authority knew that the collective mind which exists within each individual member of mankind had to be separated if their collective power was to be diminished. It is the collective imagination and desire that creates reality. If it exists in the imagination of enough of us it will be translated into the reality that is experienced by all of us. So we had to be programmed in order that we would perceive an ‘authorised reality’ which would place limits upon our imagination. The constraints placed upon our imagination were sustained by what is believed to be ‘possible’ and ‘realistic’.
When the criteria of ‘possible’ and ‘realistic’ were believed within the mind they created implied opposites within the same mind. Why do we need to be ‘educated’ to believe in the collective definition that we call reality? In history authority realised that unless the imagination of the masses was controlled reality could change and evolve beyond their dominion. So authorities took a decision to condition the minds of each new born child. The method authority used to incarcerate the creative potential of mankind was to possess the minds of our children.
Authority decided that each new born child must be domesticated if its behaviour was to be controlled. The mind would be conditioned. With conditioning a mind can be educated to achieve limited personal and creative expression. The way the minds of the children of God were conditioned to achieve limited personal expression was demonstrated by Pavlov. Pavlov conditioned a dog to respond to a noise. A noise was used by authority to condition and control the mind of man. This noise is the ‘name’. Once we believe we are our given name we are like a dog or horse that is ‘broken’.
Like a wild horse, once we are broken we can be trained to exist vicariously through limited personal expression. When we respond to our name it is because we have entered what is represented in a dictionary by the word ‘trance’. Authority does not control us because it cannot control us. What authority can exert control over is the belief system it created. If we worship a belief system it controls us. Our belief system can control us but only for as long as we worship it as truth. It is not the truth.
‘The truth will set us free.’
When we are conditioned to respond to our given name, we are usurped by that name. This ‘occupation’ or ‘trespassing’ within our mind prevails only until the realisation of truth occurs. When believed the name takes our place and incarcerates us within a perspective. All of our subsequent beliefs are acquired from that perspective. The perspective is the ego commonly referred to as the ‘ego mind’. This mind is merely a perspective. It can never be happy, because it is not ‘us’. When we are conditioned to respond to our name it controls us and its beliefs control what we feel.
It is the ego perspective that is controlled, not us. It is only the perspective of an ‘identity’ that can be conditioned to respond to the will of others. The method used to condition (domesticate) a dog is by instilling a noise. For the noise to condition a response it must be associated with something (stimulus) which creates the correlation between stimulus and response. For the innocent child it was originally ‘pain’ that was used as the stimulus to condition the appropriate responses. The noise is effectively a precursor which instils an operating system.
When believed the name that is the assigned ‘identity’ becomes a vehicle to communicate commands. When beliefs are installed any reference by authority to the name may no longer be required for compliance. Innocent children were originally conditioned to respond to a noise which evolved into a name. After the child’s mind was conditioned to unconsciously respond to their given name it was then told that it was that name. When the belief in the name replaced truth in the mind of the child the name separated the child from its divinity.
For the perspective of the ‘identity’ to take control it needed the child to believe it was what it was conditioned to respond to. The belief that is the name ‘is’ the mind of the identity. The ego mind is a belief. The ego mind having no creative ‘wisdom’ was educated (conditioned) with beliefs. The beliefs incarcerate reality within a perceived reality. Our perception is limited to what our beliefs define reality to be. The child is effectively hypnotised by its beliefs in order to ensure that it responds and is controlled by what it believes it is experiencing.
We can only identify something before we encounter it if our mind has been programmed to know how it should perceive what it believes it sees. Many children who live in cities can identify a crocodile to be a crocodile who have never encountered what is defined by the word ‘crocodile’. Beliefs are misrepresenting reality. Perceived reality is an effect and man’s collective beliefs are its cause. If man loses his belief in definitions then his collective creative imagination will create reality. Experience can only be confined by what our beliefs define it to be.
The definitions confined to words within a dictionary are someone else’s proposed truth seeking to incarcerate our unlimited creative potential. ‘It’ is! Reality is ‘it’. It is regardless of whether or not we can define it. It is because ‘I am’. Nothing exists for me without my faith in it. The only truth of our experience is us. Any words used to define ‘us’ places limitation where in truth it does not exist. So we don’t know anything that we have been educated to believe is true. We just believe that what we believe is true and use perception to confirm allegiance to that belief.
What we are confirming is not our truth. Our beliefs testify that the dictionary’s definition is the truth of our experience. The dictionary definition is not our unique truth and merely ensures our vision is replaced by the ‘authorised’ definition of what is universally perceived to be reality. Whilst we worship beliefs we are blind to ‘our truth’. The beliefs are a form of psychic braille which constrains unlimited potential to what the beliefs define our potential to be. The ego must do this because without beliefs the ego is blind but we are not.
