Speaking the truth is fraught with many dangers. That’s why so few of us practice truth telling as a way of being. We are in an age where the need to speak the truth is becoming urgent. Universal deceit is standard issue.
The signs that Universal deceit is the law of the land include… Whistle blowers are maligned, given the status of criminals, often forced to hide. We have the rise of Anonymous, and the global meme of the Guy Fawkes mask, a symbol of anti-state/anti-big business anarchy. Lying by our politicians is so standard we now just expect it. Big business gets away with murder, literally and figuratively. The general public are ever more suppressed and kept in the dark. The laws to ‘protect’ become the enablers of ‘political’ and therefore acceptable crime.
No one can bar the road to truth, and to advance its cause I’m ready to accept even death.
There are those who are brave enough to stand in their own truth and accept even death. History has shown, time and again, that these few brave souls are at first maligned and attacked, and then with the passage of time, seen for their true purpose. To no longer be silent, because the price is too high for all humanity.
The most over whelming sign of Universal deceit is when the ‘Powers Pulling the Stings’ ensure the public are kept in fear. It is fear that keeps the power play alive. Fear of the terrorist. Fear of losing money, Fear of losing your job. Fear of the stranger. Of the Muslim. Fear of too many people, not enough for us.
The fires of fear have been so well stoked we are covering like mistreated animals. Until a small few speak up.
The few become many, the many become a mass. Until we have blessed unrest.
“Blessed Unrest is coming to a neighborhood near everyone in the world. Nothing can stop it. Turkey will never be the same. The spell is broken there. The spell will be broken everywhere. Humanity is brilliant. There is barbarism and insanity afoot in the world, and it is causing a shining class of warriors, dancers and truth tellers to emerge throughout the world. Humanity knows what to do.” –Paul Hawken, environmentalist and writer
Here’s to the shining class of warriors, dancers and truth tellers.
(PS. Time Warner own the rights to the Guy Fawkes Mask. Interesting that they are making a small fortune through the sale of the now Universally recognised symbol of anarchy.)
