Who among us hasn’t also tried to hide from that which was real and true?
As I reflected on the dishonest attempt by Mick West to debunk Billy Meier’s UFO film, for a moment I saw an overgrown child, with no self-awareness of how transparent his motives were, fearfully and from atop a ladder, desperately trying to make some bogeyman or imagined monster go away in order to rid himself of the perceived threat to whatever safer version of reality he’d constructed and clung to.
Truly, who among us, at some point in our own lives, hasn’t also tried to hide from, or lashed out desperately against, that which was real and true but that we perceived, for whatever reasons, to be an existential threat to our own being and sense of self?
Why is it we human beings are so often hesitant, conflicted and afraid to be honest, to speak the plain truth?
How is it that we have institutionalized loathing, disdain, ostracism, torture and even death for those who dare to speak the truth?
A large contribution to this corruption of the good human nature can be seen to have originated and continuously perpetuated by…religion. So odious is the truth to dogmatic religions and many of their adherents that we have the word heresy to attack, restrict, restrain, and bludgeon into bloody submission those who would seek and speak the truth, bearing little resemblance as it does to religious beliefs.
This tradition of deviousness, distortion and domination to enforce a perverse and corrupted perception of reality was also institutionalized, for nonbelievers and believers alike, through the fallback safety system designed to assure the extension of control and corruption into the everyday life of all people, in the form of politics.
Both religion and politics have extended themselves into every area of our lives and even those who’d claim to be affiliated with neither may still engage in cultic behavior. Those who strongly identify themselves as skeptics, or Skeptics, in so doing nakedly reveal a prejudicial belief system, a circle-the-wagons mentality that can be just as irrational and nasty in the face of strong opposing views, and towards those who espouse them, all the more so when those views are supported by actual evidence.
It’s not uncommon to hear skeptics parrot the fallacious belief, “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence”. But, as I’ve pointed out, all that’s really ever required is subjecting any claim to analysis and testing in accordance with scientific methodologies. After all, wasn’t Galileo’s claim once considered “extraordinary”?
While skeptics may revel in the opportunity to roundly ridicule and taunt the “easy targets”, like those who claim psychic powers, or other non-existent paranormal abilities or evidence, they bring out the big guns and resort to any-trick-in-the-book, prejudicial and downright dishonest means to suppress, stifle and…scare away the “monsters” of truth and honesty that threaten what amounts to a religious world view in itself.
Of course, disagreeing with skeptics, or those of any religious, political or cultic mindset, doesn’t in itself automatically mean that one is fully honest and truthful with others or themselves. A self-honest person doesn’t seek to hide from their own flaws and shortcomings and just focus on those of others. Again, “who amongst us?”.
Being honest with others starts with being honest with oneself. We must see things, within and without, as they really are. As we do so, we find ourselves not only surmounting our inner fears but actually being relieved of the complex, tiresome burdens, and maintenance, of self-deception. We experience greater peace, love, freedom and harmony with others as well.
The more we experience this self-liberation, the more we want – and the more we want it for others. Of course, here is where things can get a bit tricky as well. We run the risk of missionizing, proselytizing, falling into feelings of superiority, etc. Everything in life can be a double-edged sword; vigilance, discernment and self-discipline, a balance between the positive and negative are always required.
We also take joy in discovering – if not always in being shown! – our own mistakes and errors, as it leads us to yet more self-discovery, self-awareness and overall…honesty.
It is this journey into ourselves, the meaning of life and Creation, the...spiritual teaching that is the real reason and purpose of the Billy Meier contacts, not the UFOs, or even the prophecies, etc. But bringing the truth to a world that is so heavily saturated and invested in untruth and dishonesty has seemingly required a very patient, enduring, and at times seemingly indirect, as well as direct, approach.
Now that we know, now that we are aware, we should use the time we have to develop the necessary understanding of, and compassion for, ourselves and others, and see each other as truly being…of equal value.
And speaking of honesty:
See this article about the murder of the Pope that Wendelle described and see how close it is to what Billy Meier told him and all who were present.
“AFTER SEVERAL COVER-TO-COVER READINGS OF THE ARAHAT ATHERSATA BOOK, I BECAME ABLE TO NEUTRALIZE OR ELIMINATE MY MIGRAINE HEADACHES WITHIN SECONDS.”
“I JUST FINISHED READING THE NEWLY TRANSLATED ARAHAT ATHERSATA AND I MUST SAY THAT IT IS THE MOST HELPFUL BOOK I HAVE EVER READ. THE BOOK PUTS IT IN SIMPLE AND EASY TERMS HOW ANYONE CAN CHANGE THEIR BAD THINKING NEARLY OVERNIGHT, A MANUAL FOR A HEALTHY MIND IF YOU WILL.
AND A HUMAN CAN NOT ONLY ELIMINATE PAIN, ANXIETY, DOUBT, DESPERATION, ETC. BUT ALSO REAL ILLNESSES BY JUST THINKING AS NATURE INTENDED IT FOR THE HUMAN BEING.”
