Curiosity: The Warrior of Truth

August 29th, 2018 – By Tim Bryant
Guest writer for Wake Up World

Unbeknownst to a large majority of the public, there’s an ongoing battle happening right now for the minds of the masses between those propagating a false reality and those demanding a truthful depiction of reality. This isn’t exactly a new battle, as the powers that be have always aimed throughout history to keep the masses uneducated and naïvely ignorant to how the world really works and how their power system remains intact. However, with the dawn of the Internet the public has never been so close to such a wealth of knowledge; it can practically reach out and taste real freedom if it so chooses.

In order to touch it, it seems pretty clear to those fighting for truth on the front lines that waking the masses up to this hidden wealth of knowledge is the focal point of the movement; for if a big enough collective action is to happen and change the world, getting enough people educated to the real problems and solutions is the first step. It is assumed that the wheels of action will inevitably turn once enough people awaken inside, finally able to see the many logical holes in reality. These holes include a flawed financial system, false flag terrorism, unhealthy food, the military industrial complex, the occult, and a hugely fabricated history that was meant to hide the roots of society’s problems. The list could go on for days, but the point is that getting enough new people to step foot into the forbidden pool of knowledge is of the utmost importance. Usually, once someone steps into the pool, it becomes hard to stay at bay and not jump all the way in and go for a swim. Once the masses jump into real knowledge, real change is inevitable and cannot be stopped.

The problem is as the old saying goes, “You can’t help someone who doesn’t want help.” This is undoubtedly true, as people who do not want to awaken to truth, will not awaken to truth. We cannot force it upon them even though it might feel like we have to at times. So the question is: What is the truth community to do when it knows how vitally important it is to share knowledge in order to bring about the awakening, as well as knowing that most people want truth even if they don’t consciously realize it? The answer is that we must spark curiosity in the minds of the people so that they will become curious enough to walk down the road of truth themselves. At this point right now, the ripeness for curiosity has never been higher, so the time to act upon truth is now.

Ripe with Curiosity

Curiosity is the desire to learn or know more about something or someone; something that is interesting because it is unusual. Without curiosity, most people would not even look in the particular direction. They often must have a curious spark which signals to them that this new experience/idea is something they might want to look into and learn about. To develop true political beliefs, curiosity is essential because usually people are force-fed into indoctrinated political beliefs that feed the current system and steer people away from real knowledge. A strong sense of curiosity is what makes people go out and look on their own, coming to their own independent conclusions as to what they think and believe. It seems today that people have a strong curiosity that current established parameters cannot contain, which bodes extremely well for those battling on the side of truth. This is something that can and must be capitalized on before the window of opportunity shuts and a new demagogue arises to fill the vacuum.

One of the clear signs of curiosity for truth and something new is the complete breakdown of the current system. The completely abysmal ratings of those in Congress, a financial system that is slipping father into debt and inequality, an ecosystem that is being destroyed daily, and war machine that people on both sides of the aisle cannot fathom supporting anymore. This also comes on the heels of a mainstream media that is utterly collapsing as ratings, viewership, and revenue dries up quicker than it can adapt, with no signs of a revival. It is simple, people do not relate with the social systems in place in their countries and at the same time are sick of the illusionary coverage it is receiving on the television. Fortunately, independent media has been there to fill the void and report on issues that are not controlled by those at the top. This is a part of a growing trend of curious people looking for real news outside the parameters.

Further, to the amazement of some, the term “conspiracy theory” is beginning to not only lose its weight as a term used to discredit anything the establishment disagrees with, but the mainstream is increasingly being forced to deal with conspiracy theories and talk about them. In two experiments done by University of Winchester psychologist Michael Wood,

“Wood found labeling an assertion a conspiracy theory had no significant effect on whether people believed it to be true. This held for generic statements about cover-ups and abuses of power, actual historical events, and a fictional incident set in a foreign country.”

This breakdown in the word conspiracy theory has led to an increase in conspiracy theories being discussed, which has forced mainstream outlets to start addressing conspiracy theories as more people are realizing that some of the information contained within this field is very relevant and needs to be looked at more closely. This again is all because people are curious and their minds cannot be contained much longer than they already have been. They are searching for the missing pieces and unfortunately, many are hidden in this taboo field of “conspiracy theories”.

Run with the Curiosity!

It is now time to run with the ever increasingly curious public and bring the masses to the side of truth. False “alternative candidates and movements” are there trying to swoop up those that wonder, so those already awake cannot sit back on the sidelines and wait. Continuing to spread information and openly talk about these topics is as paramount as ever.

Often times, people go about awakening their friends and families by shouting all their new facts and information into their faces, getting all worked up in the process. The problem with this is that it puts people on the defensive and all sense of curiosity is gone when one thinks that learning something new is scary or threatening. Instead, we must learn to be calm and laid back, appearing to have something that they don’t quite have, unhindered by the fact that they might not want it. This makes us appear confident and smart, often making people more curious as to what it is that we have that they don’t. Their mind will naturally wonder on its own and contemplate that experience with you. Everyone wants confidence and truth, so don’t go about shouting it out or forcing it upon people, just be it and embody it. That does not mean one doesn’t bring up the hard facts, but do so in a calm, confident manner, instead of acting erratic and mad. Truth is on our side, so there is no reason that people should not act and talk with confidence. This confidence will only lead to more curiosity and in the end hopefully it will result in truth winning out.

So get out and spark curiosity by embodying truth. This will only plant more subtle seeds of curiosity, which inevitably help people walk down the path of truth under their own will.

Follow the change. Be the change.

THE TIME IS AT HAND

THE TIME IS AT HAND

The world is in chaos
Natural disasters abound
The world is in chaos
Just look around
The time is upon us
The time is at hand
When mighty warriors
Will once again roam our land
They are keepers of stories
Legends rituals and myths
They walk amongst us
They live in our midst
They come to awaken
The Great Spirit within us
To help form a new world
Filled with Peace, Freedom and Justice
Petty jealousies, prejudices all put aside
In peace, love, understanding
We would all abide
Living in harmony and love
With all mankind
Strength and beauty in prayer
Together we’ll find
Their thoughts are pure
Caring for our needs
Shown by their warmth
And their unselfish deeds
Our children once again
Learn respect for Mother Earth
Lands, forests birds and animals
Experiencing rebirth
Earth Medicine for all they say
Friends, sisters and our brothers
Must become a way of life
To care for one another
We need leaders today
And here’s just a thought
How about some with wisdom
That’s been earned and not bought
Who have courage and love
Understanding of people
For a world filled with peace
Not merely survival

The path of the spiritual warrior

warrior-out-with-the-old

The path of the spiritual warrior is not soft and sweet. It is not artificially blissful and pretend forgiving. It is not fearful of divisiveness. It is not afraid of its own shadow. It is not afraid of losing popularity when it speaks its truth. It will not beat around the bush where directness is essential. It has no regard for vested interests that cause suffering. It is benevolent and it is firey and it is cuttingly honest in its efforts to liberate itself and humanity from the egoic ties that bind. Shunning strong opinions in the name of spirituality is anti-spiritual. Spirituality that is only floaty soft is a recipe for disaster, allowing all manner of manipulation to run amok. Real spirituality is a quest for truth, in all its forms. Sometimes we find the truth on the meditation cushion, and sometimes we find it in the heart of conflict. May all spiritual warriors rise into fullness. This planet is lost without them.

Characteristics of a Spiritual Warrior

Happiness is every person’s choice, but few make an effort for it.

The Spiritual Warrior is a person who challenges the dreams of fear, lies, false beliefs, and judgments that create suffering and unhappiness in his or her life. It is a war that takes place in the heart and mind of a man or woman. The quest of the Spiritual Warrior is the same as spiritual seekers around the world. The Spiritual Warrior faces this challenge with the clarity and awareness that this war is fought within himself and that Truth and unconditional love are on the other side of these battles. This is what the Toltecs refer to as Personal Freedom. You can find this referenced in the book The Four Agreements by don Miguel Ruiz.

Characteristics and Traits

To win the war against fear requires awareness, courage, discipline, and commitment to transform the emotional body. These are some of the characteristics of a Warrior

Awareness of the Spiritual Warrior

The first and most vital tool of the spiritual warrior is awareness. It is easy to we think we are aware, but pure awareness has no thinking involved. It has no thinking because it has no interpretation. Awareness is to perceive with clarity the truth of what is happening without interpretation or opinion. In a moment of awareness the dialogue in the mind stops. We are
“seeing” from a point or view separate from the reasoning part of our mind. This could be described as an epiphany. Practiced seer’s live in this awareness in every moment.

Awareness is essential because it is the state of consciousness that allows us to discern between the facts and the Truth, and between the story and the lies in our mind. The realm of our mind is filled with false perceptions and false beliefs. While the mind can be very clever with stories and lies, it is the consciousness of awareness that is the discerning intelligence. We may use very intelligent reasoning to make a decision that is not good for ourselves. Only to look at it in hindsight and realize that we discounted indicators that told us otherwise. This can be done in something as simple as a stock investment. The mind is clever, but it is also full of assumptions and limited paradigms of perception. Conscious awareness allows us to see clearly instead of be blinded by these false belief paradigms.

Self awareness is the clarity to know who and what you are, and not get caught up in self important images of ourselves. These self important images in our mind distort our sense of who we are. False images can lead us to low self esteem and self confidence, or they can take us into being self centered. If you have an idea of who you are, then consider that you are not that idea in your mind. You are the one creating the idea, and observing it. Self awareness that you are not any of those images in your mind is essential to becoming free of self importance.

Courage of the Spiritual Warrior

The courage that makes for a good soldier also makes for a good Spiritual Warrior, but the intent becomes completely different. A soldier has courage to face a challenge that may bring physical harm. The Spiritual warrior has the courage to question challenge his or her own beliefs. By challenging our own beliefs we can dissolve the lies that cause our suffering. To challenge our own beliefs requires courage because it means the end of our illusion of safety. When other people challenge our own beliefs we are usually quick to defend. We defend them even if they cause us to suffer. As a warrior we learn not to defend what we believe, and then to challenge those very beliefs ourselves. In this way we are able to sort out the truth from illusions.

Discipline of the Spiritual Warrior

A soldier has discipline to follow orders and continues on when faced with challenges. The Spiritual Warrior’s discipline to continue on with their path when faced with challenges from their mind. It is easier to follow orders as a soldier, because we are threatened with consequences and rewarded to motivate us. This is in line with our years of conditioning. A
warrior must have the discipline to practice deal with their own mind without someone else providing the motivation with carrots or sticks. A warrior must exercise their own will at the command of their heart, not an outside authority figure. This often means going against the fearful opinions in our mind that tempt us with illusions of punishment and rewards. We must also have the discipline to follow our own heart even when tempted by another person’s opinion. This way of living requires disciplined practice.

The Love of the Spiritual Warrior

A soldier has a commitment to love his/her country. The Spiritual warrior must have the commitment to love him/her self. The warrior then extends that love to humanity. The commitment is required because in our journey we will certainly fumble and fall many times. It is in having a strong commitment that we get back up again. It is common to fall to judgment. It can be easy to love some people, particularly the people that like us or treat us well. However, it requires a tremendous commitment to love in the face of those that reject us. This commitment will cause us to challenge our beliefs about our judgments and not being compassionate. We must be committed to love beyond our own self-serving interests of what it will bring us. This is how we will become happy beyond our current paradigm of beliefs. In time we become committed to love for the sheer enjoyment of expressing love. This becomes our commitment. We nourish ourselves with the love we express. A warrior acts in this committed way, even when challenged.

In my point of view, Jesus Christ was the greatest Warrior. He had the courage, discipline, and openness to Love unconditionally even as he was being rejected and physically persecuted during his days. Even when his body was in physical pain, the only emotions he created and expressed were of love and compassion. He did not use a reason in his mind to hate or judge.

This is extraordinary impeccability. If he could love in his challenges, then we can learn to love unconditionally in our challenges.
