Truth and Freedom


    And ye shall know the truth,
    and the truth shall make you free.

    (Yeshua – John 8:32, KJV)


I am sharing a blog I posted at Facebook. My point in the blog: TRUTH and FREEDOM go hand in hand. They are twin aspects of life essential for growth and progress. You cannot have only one.

My blog is a comment to an another blog posted elsewhere in Facebook which reads:

    @CP,,, exactly right. Freedom is trending down, and the whistleblower Snowden said he blew the whistle now because, very soon, it will be too late to stop it.

Below is my response to him.

    If you study the evolution of human consciousness from a psycho-spiritual (not biological) perspective, you will find out that a new consciousness is emerging globally at this period of time we are living in. The new awareness will eventually unify the human species to prepare for its extra-planetary phase of evolution in the bold future.

    But this is taking place not without a major price or exchange: The old limiting and oppressive memes and infrastructures of the human condition have to be phased out and dismantled big-time, to give way to a larger awareness of freedom and oneness. And rapid (and still accelerating) technological advance is pushing us to a decisive fork in the road — a “point of no return” for humankind.

    In a sense, you might compare this evolutionary development to the introduction of the industrial age, after which transportation by horse-drawn carriage became obsolete in the mainstream. As a growing, mobile species, we decided it is better to drive and ride a car or bus, to travel by rail from coast to coast, to regularly cross oceans by enormous ocean liners, and then to fly the skies in fleets of huge aircraft. Despite all the problems presented by petroleum-product pollution in the modern world, no one is seriously advocating a mass return to horse-driven transportation. That is a thing of the past which man has outgrown with his scientific technology.

    Although a bright, new global consciousness is emerging now, people are not fully aware that it IS emerging, of WHAT is actually emerging, HOW it is emerging, and WHY it is emerging NOW. At a deep level, people feel its impact in terms of their need to grow, to open up, and to become more free, expansive, and happier in life. Unconsciously, they feel it driving them into activities that fulfill the objectives of the new consciousness, BUT they cannot yet quite put their fingers on the phenomenon and the spirit stirring in them.

    Hence, over the recent decades we see or have seen the Arab spring, the failed Green Revolution in Iran, the replacement of Communist China’s rigid dogmatism with their economic pragmatism, the steadily increasing “westernization” of China, the turmoils and conflicting interests undermining the EU’s attempts to unify Europe, the serious immigration problems the US and other western nations are facing, the shake-up or breaking-up of social, political, educational and even religious institutions, etc. All these events represent efforts of people to find greater freedom and happiness in their life experiences, and this valid life-affirming desire is stirring them up.

    People are getting fed up with lies, lies, falsehoods and more lies from their leaders and human institutions. People can take only so much deceit and oppression. Human beings are not totally dumb: Just recall how the species has incredibly risen to become the planet’s ruling species. No simple feat for a primate.

    Eventually a tipping point occurs, and the bubble of deceit and oppression bursts. Then we have change. That’s why we have whistleblowers like Manning and Snowden, protestors like Gandhi, MLK, the revolutionaries of the American and French revolutions, the overthrow of USSR-styled communism, the emergence of modern-day civil/gay rights and gay marriage, etc. These people or events are catalysts of change and social transformation. In time, eventually the controlling, greedy materialism of man-made corporations will back-fire against the men hiding behind their corporate facades. Corporation and institutions can be brought down because mere mortals are behind them, not gods. There is a powerless man behind the fabled Wizard of Oz.

    There is no higher virtue than truth and freedom. Both go hand in hand.

    Enough is going to be ENOUGH. 😉  

There is no higher virtue than truth and freedom. Both go hand in hand. 😉


About Marc of Contemplative Pathways

Marc teaches contemplative meditation in the context of "contemporary mysticism" under the style of "Contemplative Pathways." His spiritual work is backed by a profound understanding of mystical teachings and the mystical life, that is rooted in fifty (50) years of personal study, practice and spiritual unfoldment (inner realization and spiritual experience).  In the course of his spiritual journey, he has received the gifts of mystical discernment and spiritual transmission. Marc has been conducting classes and meetings on contemporary mysticism and meditation at the San Francisco Bay Area for over fifteen years, usually in a classroom, lecture, seminar, workshop, online meeting, or group practice setting. He has facilitated study groups and workshops for centering/contemplative meditation practice meetings since the 1980s. Marc's teaching work meaningfully shifts consciousness in students through the process of spiritual transmission and mystical transformation.  He enables others to embark on the spiritual journey by understanding the Truth teaching and by living its principles in their daily lives. His methodology of instruction is divinely inspired and firmly rooted in pure, authentic mysticism.  Marc's approach to the subject of contemporary mysticism is essentially nondenominational, nonsectarian, culturally interfaith, transreligious, definitively unitive, and unequivocally nondualistic. Within the context of the great shift in consciousness presently occurring all over the planet, Marc’s work focuses on individual and collective spiritual instruction and transformation. He promotes the practice of contemplation or meditation as the vehicle for spiritual transcendence and ascension to the higher dimensions of mystical consciousness.

Marc is firmly committed to the vision of a global spiritual awakening and the divine promise of humanity’s mystical illumination. His brand of mysticism is the only true contemporary mysticism born of 21st century illumination and spirituality.
