Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.
— Ayn Rand
Truth seeking… It’s a multifaceted, multidimensional, multidisciplinary journey. Any number of deep, dark rabbit holes can keep you occupied for a lifetime, and yet once a truth is known and revealed, nothing is noticeably improved. In fact, it’s much worse. Nevertheless, when you need to know what’s true, this is the inevitable process. Until, at least, the borrowed illusions and practiced delusions are exposed and shattered.
Then, the truth is plain and clear and horrific and beautiful.
Today, we have a groundswell of awakening souls who are swallowing the red pills, tasting that awful bitterness, and taking up the heavy responsibility for admitting their foolish blindness, their complacency, their cowardice, and their spiritual sluggishness.
The question that faces us today, as we begin to succumb to exhaustion in the War against Nature, the War against the Self, and what Steiner called the War of Each against All, is how to create the more beautiful world our hearts tell us is possible. How, when we face a monstrous Machine, can we create its opposite, when to fight that Machine brings into the world only more fighting? We are tired of fighting. After five thousand years of crusading for good, we have around us a ruin, cheap and ugly, bloated excess alongside crying destitution, dying languages, dying cultures, dying forests, dying seas, dwindling insects, fish, and amphibians, radioactive waste, PCBs in every living cell, concrete scabs spreading across the soft earth. No normal person wants such a world. Thus we call it abnormal, incomprehensible, abominable, and grope for that final explanation for all that is wrong: evil.
It’s an epochal cycle, and we’ve been here many times before. So, yes, there is resolution. The Light has already won. But, in all things occurring and evolving and existing here in the density that is our reality, much blood will yet be spilt. Those without the capacity for morality and love only know service-to-self, and thus have no intentions nor conceptions beyond parasitic psychopathy.
In a little over two and a half years, our collective “reality” has been radically revised. Our societies have been radically restructured. Millions (probably billions) of people have been systematically conditioned to believe a variety of patently ridiculous assertions, assertions based on absolutely nothing, repeatedly disproved by widely available evidence, but which have nevertheless attained the status of facts. An entire fictitious history has been written based on those baseless and ridiculous assertions. It will not be unwritten easily or quickly.
It has always been this way. But remember who and what you are; don’t give them any more of your gaze, your resources, or your creative energy than is necessary to discern what is false. Use anger to forge a path back to your heart, and to ignite a fire in your belly. Use anxiety and depression to anchor yourself to the present, to the herenow. Use your absolute creatorship and cosmic authority to fashion and envision the world you would prefer. The source of all creation is within you.
Your capacity and perception for the fear of death will be tested, again and again. But, when you know what is true, you’ll be right back in the righteous fight. And, your fight is your own. What matters to me may not matter to you…
Fortunately, some are born with spiritual immune systems that sooner or later give rejection to the illusory worldview grafted upon them from birth through social conditioning. They begin sensing that something is amiss, and start looking for answers. Inner knowledge and anomalous outer experiences show them a side of reality others are oblivious to, and so begins their journey of awakening. Each step of the journey is made by following the heart instead of following the crowd and by choosing knowledge over the veils of ignorance.
— Henri Bergson
There is only Love. Not the woo-woo, childish, spiritually bypassing lower-case love… Real fucking Love, which fears no death, adheres to no ideology, stands under no authority, and will never stand idly by in the face of tyrants, cowards, parasites, vampires, and big damn lies.
Truly, Love isn’t hiding amid the marketing of “love and light” miasma. It’s a righteous indignation toward all that stands to profit from massive lies. It will kill to protect its family. It will curb stomp ignorance, and decapitate the playful imps of manipulation and spellcasting.
Don’t fuck around with Love.
Get messy. Get real.
