It was the best of times, it was the worst of times
In Today’s world everything throughout the day is dressed with duality. There are two ways of looking at everything. In taking thought, we can choose to take a step back and view everything from every angle to come to our own conclusion. The problem is that with the advancement of technology in society, it makes it much more difficult to arrive at our own conclusions when it seems as if we are controlled to define everything as we are told. The only way out is to reach consciousness on our own and collectively rise above what is holding us back.
From my reading of Brad Olsen’s Modern Esoteric: Beyond our senses, I came to a very interesting and good point that touches on this:
“Questioning everything we have learned is the first step. The wisdom of critical thinking allows us to see through this wilderness of mirrors. A fearless open-minded wisdom is the ability to examine every issue from every angle, no matter how threatening some of those conclusions might be. A true researcher will leave no stone unturned and attempt to learn every concept from every angle. AS AN EXAMPLE, Very few people know that the original Greek translation of apocalypse can also mean a “Revelation” of something hidden, or the “lifting of the veil.” However, the common perception of an apocalypse is all doom and gloom. In its proper context, apocalypse is a disclosure of something deliberately kept from the majority of humans in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception. Far from being a terrifying experience, apocalypse represents the revealing of the true nature of things. It ushers in an era of forgotten freedoms and unprecedented clarity. This “lifting of the veil” will set us free from the misery that has been the result of our ignorance based on deception. Wisdom is knowing the difference.“
After reading this passage it brought me to an interesting point that we all might have missed. Think about everything that you know and also allow yourself to step back into the unknown. How do you arrive at most of your conclusions, thoughts, or perception of reality and what is real? Most of the time it comes from what we are taught, what we are told, what we hear, and many other ways that is conveniently set in place to steer us in a particular direction.
So if wisdom is the ability to examine every issue from every angle, it looks like we have some work to do. This is a message for all, because if we are honest with ourselves and to each other we all are constantly learning. Let us put this new method into place and set wisdom with new terms that begins with simple things like being compassionate, loving ourselves and one another, great multitudes of gratitude, forgiveness, respect, and most importantly LOVE. IF we can start to consistently examine all things and have these tools in place then it could lead to a lot of good for everyone.
Let us remember the importance of service, but not in just ourselves: Service to each other. True knowledge must be desired and it will always be available to those who search for it. “Seek and ye shall find.”
The future of this world is controlled by us as individuals. We can choose to continue to go in the direction of being controlled in our thoughts and actions, which will truly lead us into the Age of Deception OR we can begin to change. With this change this could truly be the Golden Age, which is an era so beautiful and great for all. We as individuals hold more power to not just our own day but others day every single day whether we realize it or not. Choose to view the good side of things, because we cannot change what has already happened so we must do our best to do good as we move forward. The Golden Age is an age where we rise up one by one together to arrive at the Truth of everything, which is readily available and waiting on each one of us.
Let us choose to rewrite the history books and be the names that will go down in history as a generation of people who changed the world for the better from the Age of Deception to the Golden Age.
So as I come to an end I only have two questions:
- Did you get anything out of this article that will help change things?
- Will we make this the AGE OF DECEPTION OR THE GOLDEN AGE.
