LIES, DECEPTION AND GROUP THINK
(“Jesus said, I am the way the truth and the life!”)
Lies and deception are the enemies of truth. They are put forth into the minds and hearts of the world by those who rage against what is. They are spoken propaganda and acted upon by those who have a vested interest in keeping the understanding of the truth from reaching the consciousness of every indivisible. Lies and deceptions are insidious. Once they have been believed and accepted by well meaning individuals, these individuals, in their ignorance, become agents for the spread of these falsehoods. This is how lies and propaganda are spread from generation to generation. A parent is indoctrinated into the lie and the parent indoctrinates their children, and in turn, their children indoctrinate their children and so on down through the generations.
The most effective way to propagate and spread lies and misinformation, to as many people as possible, Germany’s dictator once stated, “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.” This statement clearly shows the real goal of those who are bent on the attainment of total power, that is, to control the minds and beliefs systems of those upon who they can impose their rule.
If there is anyone who ever lived who knows how to spread lies and propaganda it would be Paul Joseph Goebbels, Germany’s minister of propaganda. Goebbels ordered countless book burnings on an attempt to crush even the discovery of any descending ideals. Almost every possible communication in Germany became under the direct control of this mentally ill being. Goebbels made a profound statement regarding lying, an activity in which he excelled; he claimed “the bigger the lie the more it will be believed.” This statement touches upon a very important factor to consider that Goebbels well understood. That is, most people are prone to a condition that is equivalent and well known as a deep psychological defect, called denial. No matter how insane or destructive the lie may be, when accepted, and when the lie is deeply enough imbedded within a belief system, then any person who challenges this insidious lie will be loathed for challenging it. For by doing so, it would require the people of the lie to step out of their rigidly defined comfort zone and begin to challenge their own belief systems, themselves. Sadly, relatively few people ever venture outside of their comfort zone to take these challenges and discard their own establish beliefs, in the name of the discovery of truth. You could spend a life-time listing and analyzing all the lies that have been propagated and disseminated by systems of institutionalized thought spread throughout the world. But there is one lie that is bigger and more insidious than all the other lies that have ever been told. This is the lie that contends that there is no truth or if there is, it could never become known or comprehended by human beings. This is the biggest lie every spoken, written by, or sold by, anyone. If one believes this lie, Ones spiritual journey comes to a halt before it has a chance to begin, many, many people throughout our world will be stuck at this point in their Spiritual evolutionary development because they have bought this poisonous lie, hook line and sinker.
The TRUTH is knowable, you can know it, if not, nothing ever would have ever existed because the realization of truth is the very purpose of existence itself. This isn’t a belief, this is simply what is. Truth can never be destroyed,. The biggest lie, while it may be capable of dissuading some people from embarking on the discovering of the truth, it can never and will never destroy the truth itself.
When we begin to challenge our own established belief system, the discovery of truth emerges into our lives, and be begin to experience its power. Overcoming the biggest lie is the only stage in this process where faith is required. One must first have faith in the fact that we are capable of discovering the truth. From that point forward, faith and belief are no longer necessary. It only takes the will to go forward to discover the truth of that which is.
