Care for Truth – The Great Work

The Great Work for the “Living” (Higher Consciousness Living)

(EC) What do we care about? Do we really care for truth? How important is truth in our lives? Do we compromise the truth about reality? Do we stand for moral truth? What path in life are we walking? Which way are we headed? What compass are we using in life? Does our compass lead us towards (or away from), what is better, realer, more just, and a more moral and truer way of life? Do we have our compass set on the compassion to act towards bearing the moral truth and the good?

Care is in green to symbolize the generative, creative principle, the waters of life, life in nature, fertility, birth, growth, evolution. What we care for motivates and drives us in certain directions and ways of living. We have free will choice to choose what we do to generate our actions.

In blue is Truth. I represented the polarities of truth as blue, and falsity as red. In frequencies of color, red is lower, and blue is higher, while the middle is green. Falsity is low, truth is high, and in the middle is us: consciousness, care, courage and free will-power to choose between the two.

What we care for in life that drives us to act, can be based in truth, but it can also be based in falsity. Caring for moral truth is extremely important. Truth is Love, Love is Truth.

2) Knowledge, Grammar, Input, Stimulus

(Trivium Method – Step 1)


Truth Type 1 – What is the actual current condition?

Truth Type 1 is a grouping concept as a universal category to represent things as they are,what is. The “Truth” is a concept to symbolize reality, existence and the universe. Whatever is, is. Whatever was, was. Whatever will be, will be. Once something has happened as an effect in reality, it is, or was, and can’t be undone. We can’t change what has already happened. The present becomes the past as soon as it happened. Only the future holds the power to create new action and change that we manifest into the present. The future becomes the present, based on causal factors that lead to things happening. One of these causal factors is consciousness that can create, manifest and generate effects into existence.

“Who controls the past controls the future; who controls the present controls the past.”
-George Orwell


Seek Truth – The Great Work Level 1

We need to seek out, desire and care to learn the truth about our current condition, the truth as things are. Both positive and negative, beauty and horror, light and dark, moral and immoral. We must have the courage to face the darkness, demon, shadow, negative, immoral and evil in the world and within ourselves. This is the basic Truth Type 1, of all the right and wrong, truth and falsity, in the existing manifested, generated and created reality that is before us.

We have to doubt what we have been taught to accept about our way of life. We have to question how we live. We have to be curious enough to want to do these things and learn all our lives. Life is learning.

This is how we gain knowledge of existence and become empowered to do something about our current condition. If you don’t actively seek to understand, then you only tacitly receive the information that is being presented to you.


3) Understanding, Logic, Processing, Thinking

(Trivium Method – Step 2)

With all the information collected, we need to process, filter and sort it all out. To discern truth from falsity, and determine what information is accurate, correct and valid, and what is inaccurate, incorrect and invalid. This requires diagnosis, evaluation, discernment and judgment. We can return to gain more knowledge, correct our understanding, and keep learning more about reality in a feedback process between our consciousness and existence. From gaining understanding to gathering more knowledge and gaining more understanding, over and over. As long as we care for truth and seek to continue to learn, we will always be able to learn more and refine our thinking, refine our understanding, and refine ourselves.


Embrace & Accept Truth – The Great Work Level 2

Once we figure out what is true from false, right from wrong, good from evil, moral from immoral, we need to accept this truth about our reality, and not reject it. We can’t be engaging in positivity-masks and wearing rosy-colored glasses to ignore, deny, reject, deflect or dismiss what is currently happening in our world, and in ourselves.

Acceptance is required. Truth Type 1, the actual truth of our current condition, is now understood. It’s possible to input data about reality, process it, yet reject it because we don’t want to accept it for what it is.


4) Wisdom, Rhetoric, Output, Response

(Trivium Method – Step 3)

To Know-Thyself is part of philosophy, which is philo-sophia, the “love of wisdom”. Wisdom is not simply knowledge or understanding, but acting on that understanding and living a certain way based on Moral Truth, the path and way of living as a truer, realer, higher version of yourself. Philosophy, the love of wisdom, is the love of right-action.


Truth Type 2 – What is the potential moral path & way we should be living?

Truth Type 2 is the Moral Truth/Law/”Love”.

“Love”, in a higher sense, not the romantic or other emotional sense, is the devotion and dedication to Moral Truth/Law because one realizes and recognizes the supreme value and importance of truth to determine and quality and condition of our lives. The Moral Truth/Law is an ideal that will determine what direction we should be heading in, what we should do and create into reality with our actions. If we Care for Truth, we can actualize, realize and individuate ourselves into living in truth.

As I have previously said: “Why do I say “Love”? Because LaW = LoVe in a philological sense with no vowels, since “W” can interchange with “V” in many languages, as is the case in old English. Law = “Love” = Moral Truth, not your standard “love”, but the higher consciousness “Love” as Truth, and Truth as “Love”. To Care for Moral Truth/Law, and be devoted and stand for Moral Truth/Law as the foundational most-important “capital” and currency to spend and pay with your time, attention, actions and behavior.”

Truth is “Love”. “Love” is Truth. Truth unites. Lies divide. Embrace Truth. Care for Truth.


Embody, Live and Be Truth – The Great Work Level 3

We have to want to choose to take in and absorb into into ourselves, our core being, “essence” or “spirit” (i.e. consciousness), the Moral Truth, and reject, negate an expel the falsity being lived. We need to change ourselves, to do some inner-work and transform our mindsets, to embody, live, exemplify and become the Way and Path of Moral Truth. The story of Jesus symbolized the Way and Path of Moral Truth/Law/”Love”, the “light” and “life”.

We create good or evil by our moral or immoral actions. The “spirit” in which we do things is based on what we care and desire to do. Caring for Moral Truth is important.

It’s up to each of us to change our individual personal condition, and the overall aggregate condition in reality. This is part of our personal responsibility in life, and to truth. Truth contrasts to falsity. Truth divides itself from falsity. Truth is the “sword”, just as the story of Jesus symbolizes in the parable of Matthew 10:34. If you follow and live by the truth, you will be divided from those who reject it and choose to continue to live by falsity.

If we only learn, and accept the current condition of reality, but don’t embody within ourselves the path and way of Moral Truth and choose to live by it, then all that knowledge and understanding will not be used to produce action. What we do as we manifest our consciousness through action and behavior, is a part of who we are. Wisdom is doing something with what we know. “Actions speak louder than words.” “You shall you know them by their action.”

“To know and not to do, is not to know.”
– Wang Yangming

This is living up to the potential of who we can be through our actions and behaviors, and creating a better potential reality for ourselves and everyone else. As each of us progresses in degrees of embodying and living up to principles of Moral Truth/Law/”Love”, we become higher, realer and truer versions of ourselves.

This is part of answering and developing an understanding of the all-important question: “who am I?”/“who are you?”, to know-thyself.


Share, Speak and Preach Truth – The Great Work Level 4

Once you seek, learn and have knowledge of the truth of our current condition; understand what is true from false, right from wrong, moral from immoral, and accepted it; have chosen to live by truth and reject the falsity from our way of living; then we can help others do the same process of engaging in the hardest and most uncomfortable work in life – The Great Work.

This means we need to share, speak and preach the Moral Truth to others for them to be exposed to the truth, right, morality and good, in contrast to how the world, and possibly themselves, is failing to live up to these principles of Moral Truth. This inherently creates adversity, opposition, conflict and division. Truth is against falsity.

Doing this requires that we have even more care, courage and will-power, and not fear the hostility of others who can’t face the mirror of reality and themselves. This is the hard part of having people face the inherent division between what is true from what is false, right from wrong, and seeing how they are supporting or participating in the negative.

There is no voice of truth inherent in existence. Truth does not exist in itself. The Moral Truth, what is moral, right and good, requires a voice to speak about it. Those who are currently living, embodying, exemplifying and being aspects of the negative, falsity, immorality or evil, are not likely going to want to face the mirror and see what they are doing. They are conditioned by the current condition of reality. They have been tacitly accepting their way of life as “good” through the illusion of “good”, and all the manipulative mind control word-magic spells cast on their minds. They think what is evil is “good” and what is wrong is “right”, because they don’t objectively know the difference between the two.

Truth is “Love”. “Love” is Truth. Truth unites. Lies divide. Embrace Truth. Care for Truth.

Apathy for Truth

The Work of the “Dead” (Lower “Unconscious” Living)

In contrast, if we are apathetic to truth, then we don’t care for truth, and won’t seek it out, accept it, and then live it. We remain in a state of ignorance, willfully ignoring, rejecting and denying the truth in the current condition of reality.

We choose to believe whatever we want, desire or wish to believe. We agree to the conditioned stimulus of the standardized and normalized acceptability spectrum for our society and how we live our life. There is no need to learn, be curious, doubt and question things, because we accept it the the illusion of “good” as being valid, normal, natural or necessary. This is the wrong kind of acceptance, tacitly accepting the current condition and talking about the same things, not really deeply thinking, not critical thinking about the current condition and seeing what is wrong with it.

acceptability-spectrum

This leads to a lack of understanding, a misconception and confusion of reality, living in falsity and illusions, and ultimately being fooled whereby we accept falsity over truth because we don’t actually care for truth nor realize the importance of truth in life.

As a result of being fooled by lies, falsity, deception and manipulation, we act foolishly and continue to engage in wrong-actions, even without knowing it. We support and participate in some form of creating wrong into the world because we remain ignorant that it’s even wrong. We may even deny it’s wrong, because we are too attached to it as the current condition that we have been conditioned into accepting uncritically. We accept what is being done as needing to continue, because that’s how it has been done. We validate it through ancestor fallacies.

This prevents us from changing our ways, to instead do the right-action, since we can’t even recognize and realize we are doing a wrong-action. We are made impotent, unable to change through learned helplessness, accepting the standard normalization of our current condition and not trying to change it.

To be apathetic, ignorant, confused and misconceiving reality and truth, to then act foolishly, means we are a coward and in fear of truth deep down within ourselves, in our consciousness. If we don’t develop True Care, we go nowhere! We are limited in our ability to create true freedom and peace, and it won’t work out in the end because we will be working against what is right, good and true in ignorance of what is right, good and true.

care-for-truth-the-great-work

The Remedy for Apathy is Care

Overall, apathy for truth is to be and remain “unconscious”, “dead”, “asleep”, “sheep”, unawakened and uninitiated. We are “dead” in the coffin or tomb, unconscious to Moral Truth and it’s importance in life, unawakened, asleep. We lack care, not living in greater Care for Moral Truth, so it symbolizes a “deadened” “heart” center, a “deadened” core, “essence”, “spirit” and consciousness.

 

When someone is literally dead, there is no consciousness or action in life, hence the symbolism of being “unconscious”. When someone is asleep, not awake, they are also unconscious an inactive. It’s to be unconscious and inactive relative to being consciously aware of the importance of caring for truth and acting in alignment with truth. Analogy, metaphor and symbolism is used to expressed this understanding of unrealized and unactualized potential to care for, seek, embrace, embody and live up to the Moral Truth as a truer, realer, higher version of ourselves.

When we choose to Care for Truth, and specifically Moral Truth, we develop a higher consciousness. We become “initiated”, “awake” and aware, where we are “resurrected”, “rebirthed” and “raised” from the “deadened” lower state of consciousness. We rise to a higher, truer and realer consciousness, and are now “alive”, into a “new life”, a “New World”, an “afterlife”, “eternal life” and “immortal life” that is given to us by the “light” of truth in our lives, the divine “Word” of “God”, the Logos, the Good.

Truth, Moral Truth, is what creates order and determines the overall quality and condition of our lives. Moral Truth/Law is the foundation for higher, truer, realer, authentic (maa) living and life.

If you are familiar with many of the narratives and mythologies of religions or “mystery” schools, this is what is actually being talked about.

As I mentioned in a previous post on Thoth (Thought), the Great Magician, the “god” of the “underworld” was called Osiris. Osiris was the Lord of Life, the “eternal life” through “resurrection” and “rebirth”. I also explained the meaning behind the black/green symbolism that some “gods” had, representing aspects of generation and creation.

osiris-collage

The underworld is the previously unknown darkness and shadow within us, where we face our demons in the darkness, and we need to use the light of truth to battle these dark forces and put them to death. Then we gain life, are resurrected and rebirthed, regenerated and recreated anew, and reach an after-life/heaven of a new world of being.

It’s all symbolism, not literal. This is the journey to the underworld, facing ourselves in the mirror, where we are our own worst enemies, we are our own adversaries, our own opposers, that we finally have the care, courage and willpower to conquer and destroy.

The Great Work is to Care

Truth is “Love”. “Love” is Truth. Truth unites. Lies divide. Embrace Truth. Care for Truth.

It all comes down to Care for Truth to initiate ourselves, and more specifically Moral Truth. To Care for Moral Truth/Law/”Love”, and recognize the ultimate importance of Moral Truth in life to improve our condition and quality of life. Moral Truth is the real capital and currency to pay attention to and spend in life. This is to understand that speaking Truth, although it may hurt some, is not a negative act, but a positive act to help them let go of falsity and better themselves and all our way of life, because Truth is “Love”, and “Love” is Truth.

Living this way, in the service and sacrifice to Moral Truth, will create division and conflict, because most people are very attached to their currently conditioned false worldview of reality, and they are very attached to their currently conditioned self-view and self-image that forms their sense of self, their ego-personality-identity construct.

They will see the speaking of truth that contradicts the falsity in how they live their life, as an attack on themselves, because they are very attacked to their subjective self-image/self-view, and this self-view, their sense of self is linked to their worldview. If you speak about their false perception of the world, or themselves, in a negative way, the ego-defenses and cognitive biases will be stirred up and attempt to ignore, deny, reject, deflect and dismiss the truth that contradicts to their attachment to falsity.

Objective detachment needs to be learned and employed so that people get over their attachment to themselves and be able to face and recognize the truth.

Truth is secondary for many, and they don’t stand in Truth. They choose to stand in the maintenance and sustenance of falsity, appearances and illusions, through their ego attachment to themselves, their way of life, and with other people that they don’t want to“offend”, “hurt” or lose a “connection” with. They choose to blindly “ally” or “unite” in falsity, for the sake of attachment and “feeling”. We all know how uncomfortable a conflict can be, and certainly if we get involved and go against someone’s delusions of being “right” when they are wrong, things can get even more inconvenient, uncomfortable and not “feel-good” to us.

We either Stand In Truth, Unite in Truth, together, or we are divided in falsity among each other. Only truth can unite. But many of us are left standing alone when there is a conflict. Many people don’t Care for Truth to unite in truth. Many people simply want to “get along” by ignoring the responsibility we have to unite, stand for and uphold what is right, good and true.

cyclical-living-or-freedom-to-change

Once we let go of our attachment to ourselves, our erroneous sense of self, self-views, self-images and worldviews, then we can objectively discern what Moral Truth actually is. This allows us to break free from the cycles of attachment to falsity that keeps us locked into perpetuating our problematic current condition and self-created suffering as a species on this planet.

We can end the creation of evil, and escape from the hamster wheel of self-inflicted suffering to create True Freedom and Peace. The choice is ours. The Great Work is a term to refer to the responsibility of standing for and serving truth in life, and most importantly the Moral Truth.

The Great Work requires 1) caring for truth, 2) seeking truth, 3) embracing truth, 4) embodying the truth to exemplify and live it, and then 4) to share and speak it to others.

care-for-truth-the-great-work

That is the only way things are going to change for the better.

Truth is not a thing in itself. Truth can’t speak. Truth can only be recognized by consciousness through objective discernment of reality. Those who have gained truth, can help truth disseminate and pervade into other people’s consciousness. This the responsibility and burden to bear the truth, to stand up for truth, to sacrifice for truth by not compromising truth.

We have to want to be better, and help others be better. It’s not about letting everyone go on their own “journey” and letting all of this continue for decades and generations to come. That’s not standing and serving what is right, good or true. That is serving excuses and false choices to let falsity and evil persist in the world. That is the apathetic, cowardly, foolish and fearful way to ignore our personal responsibility to the importance of Moral Truth in our lives.

The Great Work is the real task, job and work in all our lives, but few want to engage it, because it demands higher personal responsibility and investment in time, energy, effort, dedication, determination and persistence.

Truth is “Love”. “Love” is Truth. Truth unites. Lies divide. Embrace Truth. Care for Truth.

Truth is “Love” – Care for Truth – Embrace Truth – Live Truth.
Integrate with Truth & Morality.
Live integrated & connected.
Truth is one way – go all the way.
