Beings of Pure Love, and That’s the Truth

 In this world we have both reasons to be angry and fearful, as well as empathetic and compassionate. I choose the latter. You see, we live in a volatile time where pressures are building and they are beckoning us to move in one direction or the other. We are being asked to choose. One path leads to truth and fulfillment, and the other to a maze with infinite variations that all end in suffering. I have made a conscious decision to move toward truth.

The world has been steadily progressing toward humanities dominion over this physical world for aeons. As our control increases so does competition over the power contained within humanity. Megalomaniacal minds move to control the willful actions of human beings, and since there is only one truth and many vying for power, we are delivered one carefully contrived deception after another in an attempt to win our favor.





Each one of us represents an individualized portion of the potential collective energy in humanity. Because of this we are valuable to the power hungry. In a broad sense the political, academic, philosophical, and ideological fronts can be viewed in one of two ways. The first being to spread the truth, and the second the intent to deceive. Both are intended to coalesce the potential power that is individualized within every human into one place, so that when willful action is necessary we can be mobilized one way or the other.

The question then becomes; How do we know who is telling the truth and who is trying to deceive us? When there is a call to action and we rise up in one voice we will be unstoppable, so we must be sure. If we don’t move toward the truth our legacy will only be more suffering.

That is the ultimate state of affairs in our world. The cause of mass suffering because we forego the truth for something… less pure. This can be any number of things because in the mind we can rationalize justifications for literally anything. Just listen to a good Lawyer spin a tale. The mind is malleable. The Nazi’s where convinced they where right. Stalin thought he was justified. The Cambodian death fields where filled with bodies who suffered because of the perverted truth of a psychopath.

So what is the truth? How can it be identified? They say hindsight is 20/20, so lets gaze back through time at all the “wrong” we’ve seen. This works in the microcosm of our individualized lives as well as the macrocosm of the collective experience of mankind throughout the ages.




Human suffering that is caused intentionally is the single most obvious factor in wrongdoing.

The intent to harm, for any reason beyond the explicit preservation of ones own life (or the life of another), is not only wrong but the antithesis to truth. Anything that moves us away from truth causes harm. Horrifying and atrocious examples of this can be easily observed throughout our history and continues in news stories daily, but sometimes the suffering is not as directly observable as in acts of violence; yet the battle rages on and victims are claimed none-the-less. We could speak on specifics, but there are just too many to bother. Instead of focusing on the innumerable deceptions we must focus on the one truth.

Truth is immutable, timeless, and singular in purpose. Before the mind can be manipulated and convinced of accepting a lie as truth it is easily identifiable. I believe it is the driving force within us that animates all life. It is the emotional well-spring that flows from a place unknown yet gives rise to our every action. It is the essential human nature within us. Before the deception of this world caused us to recoil within ourselves we where beings of pure love and compassion.
Don’t believe me? Think this all sounds a little hippy-ish? Where are all the examples of violent babies? Where are the toddlers who commit atrocities? I know, I know… it sounds absurd because it is. It takes time for the world to infest the mind and pervert the emotional purity of human beings. We learn evil, and suffering is our only recompense. In time we become harbingers of suffering as we ascribe to all manner of lies that are propagated as truth.

The common denominator is that these lies contradict our nature each and every time, and deep down we know something is amiss. All to often we are lost in the maze of the mind wrestling with the illogical, or the contradictions that abound, when we should be listening to our emotions. Emotions are nothing less than the response of our deepest truth, the truth of who we are.

The truth is that you are a being of pure love and every time you do something that betrays that truth you and those around you will suffer. It took a massive amount of suffering for me to realize this. It is such a shame, because this world has the potential to be paradise. We are deceived into believing that it is somehow inherently dangerous, when the only real danger is believing so in the first place.

The Power of Honesty


Honest, in my humble opinion, is the most important thing a person can be. When we are honest we are free from deception. Lets face it, to lie is to mislead. When a lie is told someone is mistaken, or to put it as plainly as possible; someone is lost. Each single lies we tell blocks us off, brick by brick, from forming meaningful and lasting connections with any and all life. Deception causes us to lose friends that never where, to miss experiences. When we lie we lose sight of the vibrant and joyous life we deserve, and instead we turn to face a wall of deception.

Decide that honesty is worth the effort. Shake loose the lies that have kept you bound and limited.

Amazing things start to happen when you tell others (and yourself) the truth. The negative emotions we feel when tell lies start to disappear. The self righteous shenanigans of the ego begins to lose its power. The anxiety and fear of getting caught in our web of lies starts to fade away with every telling of the truth. The shame that used to keep us feeling like less and less each day, is replaced with healthy pride as we shatter through the lies that once kept us imprisoned.

Choosing to tell the truth, in all circumstances, is one of the most transformative decisions a person can make. You might be thinking that I am talking about what some would consider big lies, grand deceptions- and you would be half-way correct. I am also talking about the smaller lies we deem less important, the lies we may call small, inconsequential, or white. These lies are just as dangerous, because in the end all they are good for is keeping us from the fullness of life that can only come from the truth.

Every lie we tell, whether to ourselves or to others, removes us a little-bit-farther farther from the exuberant joy that life can bring. In deception we become embedded within the negative emotions that cause us to suffer.For those of you that know me you’ve probably gotten used to hearing me speak about the importance of treating others with the respect and honesty they deserve.

I speak from experience. I’ve been in that dark place where I felt that honesty wasn’t worth the trouble. Lies have a way of controlling you. Each lie costs you. You lose control as each lie funnels you down an ever-decreasingly narrow path. One day your decision making process has been completely overtaken by the necessity to uphold the deception.

I’ve been in that state of mind where to be honest would be to lose the upper hand. I’ve been held hostage by that persistent worldview that demands you don’t show weakness, you don’t express kindness, you don’t treat others as you’d like to be treated; you treat them as nothing more than passers-bye…. Holding stubbornly to an attitude that makes it impossible to build a meaningful relationship with anyone.

I have healed, and it is in large part due to committing to complete and total honesty to myself and all those I come in contact with.
