How can I get my Spiritual energy back

 

I am a Seeker of Truth, I have been seeking truth for almost 50 years and am hoping to be able to help all of you to do the same,

 

I am but one drop in the ocean of humanity that mingles with all of you in order to understand what it is and why it is that we are here doing what we do.

 

There are many of you that do or wish to do what I am doing, you are seeking answers to many questions that perplex you, there are many ways that this may be accomplished,

 

though it is not necessary to believe in God or the Tao, there does have to be a belief in your true self in order for any progress to be made,

 

there is an intelligence within us and all around us that is illusive but hopes that we recognize its existence, we are all part of it and it is all a part of us,

 

we need to be able to relax our preconceived beliefs and let go in order to be able to make the best use of this power,

 

we all have competition in this seeking adventure and it is US, our material selves that live within the senses try to convince us that there is nothing more than meets the eye,

 

our spiritual selves have no limitations as our material selves have, this is the part of us that we need to take notice of and learn from,

 

our material self has all of the advantages going for it, the senses are its tools that it wields in order to sway us to its thinking,

 

it is native to the 3-dimensional environment in which we now live and will deny any existence other than its own,

 

God or a higher self is not in its agenda because it is not of the senses and is not even material in existence, its control of the ego is all that it wants, period.

 

The Ego can be convinced of the existence of a true self or spiritual self and can be trained to remove some power from false personality (material self)

IS THE TRUTH SUBJECTIVE?

 

As we all have our own version of the truth, this is driven by our material needs and spiritual beliefs as our emotions guide them,

 

a subjective truth is what we believe according to our material needs and how our emotions seem to deal out our priorities,

 

if what someone says attracts us for whatever reason, we may label this the truth or if it strikes us as something else, we may dismiss it as a lie,

 

our subjective selves tend to be skewed, and cannot always be trusted, our duality makes a game of push and pull in how we prioritize the meanings of statements or opinions,

 

our physical, material selves tend to cater to the senses while our spiritual selves have much loftier goals,

 

by creating an objective self, we are better able to discern facts from fiction, this is most effective in our physical existence when a possibility of proof can be obtained to some extent,

 

whereas in the spiritual realm, truths are seemingly always subjective and cannot always be proved or disproved either way,

 

there may be the argument that there is no evidence to back up spiritual beliefs, and physically this may be true,

 

but spiritual beliefs are not of the material world and cannot really be judged by material views,

 

they endure because they are of a personal nature that has little to do with anyone else's beliefs,

 

the creation of a separate, objective self can be accomplished by pretending that you are another person that is outside of any particular situation that only observes without bias or thought of personal gain,

 

this person must be detached from your ego and material self which will sway you towards what your false personality may believe,

 

it shall take what you observe and what you feel for what ever reason and let it be known to you,

 

hidden meanings and agendas will become apparent and a freedom will come that allows you to perceive what actually is, rather that what you may have thought you believed,

 

deep seated beliefs , prejudices and fear based dogmas will become visible and then they will be able to be dispersed and replaced by a more truthful representation,

 

many people are easily swayed by emotion and are distracted by alternative agendas other that what they need to see and understand,

 

preconceived notions and third party interpretations will color your truth as to what your ego wants to believe,

 

in physical situations proof either way may be available but is usually ignored because of the emotional control of the ego.

 

Stay detached, and become more able to see clearly what is going on.

How Might I tell the Truth from Lies in Media

 

The Media is a very competitive industry and when the majority of factual information is covered by major networks, that leaves an opening for non factual conspiracy types of information to be passed along as fact,

 

as an example I will use the GOP and their fragmented party of Republicans, I loved Reagan as a governor and as a president but the Republican party has changed and has torn itself apart,

 

Our previous president has abused his power to sway millions to believe his big lies and the Republican party is following suit because of greed, power and fear,

 

a few Republicans have held their ground and have sided with the truth and have been labeled traitors and threatened and harassed for their integrity,

 

some of the media outlets have taken advantage of this unpopular stance and have decided to side with the liars because the numbers tell them that there is more money in conspiracies, boat rocking and lies than telling the truth and using genuine journalism,

 

Fox News, News Max and One America are slicing up this pie of dis information while abusing our first amendment rights all in the name of the almighty dollar,

 

they abhor fact checkers and twist every sound bite into information that they spread out of context to further their agendas,

 

firstly, recognizing that the republican party has been greatly fragmented shall show you that something is horribly wrong,

 

being divided, they shall not survive for long and these 3 media outlets are taking advantage while they can,

 

their bias skews their validity and as far as I am concerned they can no longer be trusted in the way of truth,

 

I will not even watch them for weather predictions and I suggest that everyone that values the truth will do the same,

 

the type of reporting that they now do are only opinions to advance their agendas,

 

there are still plenty of reputable media outlet that value the truth over all else and have actual journalists as opposed to glorified shock jocks,

 

what amazes me the most out of this is that so many people choose to believe just one person that is a proven liar over the vast majority of their fellow country men,

 

possibly it is because they are so much like him and hope that his deranged ideals become the nations norm, nevertheless, anyone interested in peace and the truth and justice should not follow him and those that support him,

 

this is not to say that all of these other media outlets are infallible, but at least many inconsistencies are mostly simple mistakes and are not orchestrated out of lies from the get go,

 

even the conspirators are becoming tired of the same old lies and his power is waning, some day these 3 media outlets will return to reality and become worth paying attention to,

 

but not when their agendas are still so painfully obvious, an investigation into which news outlets have won awards in journalism will present a good starting point when you are seeking the truth,

 

high standards are still being maintained in the news, it just has to be searched for a little harder.

How can you determine the Truth from an Opinion

 

Everyone has an opinion about everything, just because someone is or was in a position of power does not make their opinions fact, this in fact would point to that particular person having an agenda to back up their opinion,

 

factual truth can be backed up with hard evidence, when more opinions are presented to back up other opinions it is becoming quite apparent that something is wrong,

 

this compounds when emotion and distraction are used to confuse and confound, listening to a single person's opinion and that same single person's explanations limits your perception greatly,

 

people get caught up in something that has no basis in fact and cannot be proven as such but are talked into believing the reasons that are given because they have chosen to keep listening to that one person or another that also only listens to that one person,

 

they have chosen to have no reasoning process of their own and end up being at the mercy of the one individual and what they say as their only source of information,

 

to make things worse, there are news media outlets that have also chosen to follow this one individual because this is the only profitable course for them to follow even if what they say is not factual,

 

do not worry, this is not a lost cause, just stop listening to this one individual and those that have sold out to the mighty dollar and pursue the other 80% of media and search out the fact checkers and trust in the moral majority that actually believe in hard evidence,

 

this will bring you back to reason, the conspiracies amount to no more than an attempt at domestic terrorism and should just be ignored, if they really amounted to anything the reputable news outlets would pick them up as real news,

 

the agendas of these liars that prey upon the emotions of the loyal patriots of our country have twisted the truth to meet their agendas of power, greed and misinformation,

 

they need only be ignored for reality to retake the ground that has been diverted, when it comes to spiritual truths and spiritual opinions, you must rely on your intuition to help with your beliefs,

 

there is very little hard evidence that can be realized when it comes to spiritual opinions, techniques differ and every ship has a different course,

you may also test some of your spiritual beliefs which may take many years, if you are fortunate, something enlightening may happen to you that will make this much easier,

 

Just remember, don't be a groupie and think for yourself, wisdom and truth is not a commodity wielded by the rich and powerful, it is learned from many others that have these traits without agendas.

How is the Truth of the World Accessed?

 

World truth can be a shared experience or a fragmented experience, the accumulated knowledge of mankind is more sparse the further back it goes, facts may be obtained but the truth about certain details will always be sketchy,

 

the media lately has made this quest even more difficult with their individual agendas designed to snag the biggest audiences, this leaves the truth mostly cloudy at best, this is a dangerous venture as it is not currently realized how people perceive what they express as facts,

 

the now civil unrest is a testament to how the media has abused its position by pushing specific agendas to maximize profits, true journalism is something that must be sought on one's own,

 

unbiased views must be discerned carefully to be assured of its validity, Fox news has decidedly chosen to play on both sides of the tracks, they are clearly anti democrat and tend to support what ever has the most controversy,

 

their only true news makes up what people really do not care about, I tend to ignore everything that comes out of Fox News so there is little chance of being duped, Fox is a rich company and is able to pay to run its stories, if it says Fox, it gets passed,

 

it seems that all of the far right news outlets have lost touch with reality and appeals to those that tend to believe in conspiracy theories, they know exactly what they are doing and tend to stop when they get sued,

 

they abuse the first amendment and drag our democracy through the mud and call it journalism, what you decide to watch and consider the truth is what forms your character, it is what makes you, you,

 

being complacent in what you view from just one source and accepting it as the truth, narrows your perceptive abilities, you have been baited and are now snapping at the worm that dangles before you,

 

you are forgoing your free will for someone else's version of facts in the guise of opinion or visa versa, it is simple to fact check and listen to other views, some are based on conjecture and opinion and others are based on fact and can be verified,

 

if you are willing to be led to believe something by having your emotions inflamed and are buying in to self serving ideas clouded with ideas of patriotism and confused sentiments, you are not truly paying attention to what bottom line is being pressed upon you,

 

these tainted news outlets may come to the realization that people appreciate the truth over agendas of greed, but as far as I am concerned, it will be quite a while before I forget what they have done and tried to do and will stick to non opinionated news for my truthful facts about the world.
