Knowing is something beyond a belief , knowing comes from direct personal experience. If someone tells you the stove is hot , don’t touch it , you can “believe” them , although unless you touch it yourself , you don’t “really ” know that it will burn you.
Knowing is the by product self discovery , believing is the by product of indoctrination. We are all born into this system of indoctrination , we call it our culture , however as Terence Mckenna once said “culture is not our friend”.
What Terence meat by that statement is that culture is a program , a program designed to dis empower the human spirit , designed to keep us at base level of consciousness , designed to keep infinite consciousness in a box.
This is why it is so important to utilize our discernment as we go through this process of waking up , we have been in a slumber , a waking dream and as we begin to open our eyes it is very challenging to “Know ” what is truth and what is manipulation.
Currently, a large percentage of the population , or the collective , understand , at least subconsciously, that knowledge carries with it a personal responsibility , which is why all of the belief systems ( religion, new age, politics, science, military,education … ) on the planet are so successful , no one wants to take responsibility for themselves , they want to remain spiritual infants , because believing what others tell us is a hell of a lot easier , it requires absolutely no self discovery .

What is knowledge, and does knowledge have anything to do with transformation or the awakening process. I think first we have to define what we mean by knowledge, for the most part I think we can agree that what we commonly refer to as knowledge is really just experience.
In other words anything that we know or have knowledge of is something that we have experienced and when I say we I mean collectively as the human race.
And since knowledge is something that we have experienced, then knowledge is really rooted in the past. We can use knowledge in the present moment but it has its roots in the past.
So when you look at it from this perspective all the collective knowledge that mankind has accumulated for millennia is all based on the past, and since the human brain is in a sense a recorder of experiences, every moment of every day , we are viewing our reality from information that has its roots in the past, so in a sense, when we use our brain and thoughts, we are not really in the present moment.
To be in the present moment one almost needs to go beyond thinking towards presence, one needs to become the witnessing presence, and in this state of being thought is simply a stream of data, or background noise, it no longer defines us , it no longer pulls us along.

Life is meaningless , reality is subjective , there is no empirical truth ! These are very controversial beliefs , or ideas that have been the basis for much debate as long as human beings have been debating !
So if you buy into the mainstream science theory that consciousness comes from the physical brain , and that the human body , or the human being is simply the evolution of pond scum and that when you die , that’s it , nothing , darkness, zero, nada… then yes I can see where one might develop a pessimistic , or nihilistic view of reality, what “would” be the point after all .
The old phrase ” You only Live Life Once ” is a good example of how society or the consensus reality programs us into believing that we are simply a physical animal , with a very limited , linear existence , that the only real way to have any impact over a long period of time is to propagate , so that your lineage can carry on your name , work , memories or essence.
You see it so often in movies and stories , the same theme over and over again , oh don’t worry , father has passed , but he will live on in our memories , blah ..blah , essentially what this type of belief is saying is that , after dad dies he’s history , he no longer exists , except in our memories, so in essence we keep him alive, we make him eternal , he has no existence outside of our memories of him, yes it s classic psyop , meant to dis empower .

As we move towards the end of 2012 , I can honestly say that this year of 2012 has been incredibly transformitive. In what seems like a flash , 2012 has been one , wonderful , crazy, odd, strange, long moment, inside a greater larger moment.
We get up in the morning, we go about our day , we lay our head to rest in the evening , all in a rhythmic dance with universe , the daytime is life , the night is when we return home , back to our other lives, yet it’s all just one moment.
And as we start to gradually perceive reality from the moment , the veils begin to be lifted and we start to see the other aspects of reality, other aspects of ourselves that were hidden, ” Because” of our beliefs, our definitions , our perspectives.
We have reached such a level of novelty , of insanity on this planet , that the most important tool an individual can possess is Discernment , which can be wielded like a sword , capable of slice through all the BS.
It takes work forging this sword called discernment, it’s not an easy path , however once you have it with you buy your side , you can more easily navigate the virtual realities that we as consciousness find ourselves traveling in.
When you have discernment by your side , you are no longer a victim , you can no longer be manipulated , and you have very little need for admiration from others, you are a complete being , free to travel whatever path you choose.
