    The Magick of Deception - The Venom of Truth

    The morning begins with a magic trick to which all of nature will rejoice. The sun rises bringing with it blankets of light that chases away the darkness back into it's shallow corners.

    A great magician sees this as an illusion, in truth he knows the Sun and the brain have an intimate relationship designed to fool the soul and that in fact, the world is still dark. Darkness is everywhere.

    Three is the magic number, three is the number of magic. There are 3 acts to any good magic trick.

    “Every great magic trick consists of three acts. The first act is called “The Pledge”; The magician shows you something ordinary, but of course… it probably isn’t. The second act is called “The Turn”; The magician makes his ordinary some thing do something extraordinary. Now if you’re looking for the secret… you won’t find it, that’s why there’s a third act called, “The Prestige”; this is the part with the twists and turns, where lives hang in the balance, and you see something shocking you’ve never seen before.”



    If Americans were as sharp as this young boy following his instincts and intuition, we would not be in the place we are now. "But where's his brother?" He asks.

    Blinded by the illusions of the light how can we find our place beyond reality?
    Some of the greatest illusionists work behind the stage, pulling the ropes- or at times even under it. We cannot speak their name because we do not know their name, but in the end they die knowing they've helped to pull off some of the greatest magic tricks the world has known.

    The ability to deceive millions over generations at a time is a form of magic no common school can teach. Schools, Government, Church and Media are all part of the act, all of them have a prestige of their own.

    In the case of the School- we are told we are here to learn- to be educated, when in fact many of us are born with all we will ever need to know. Lessons only help us remember. The School's final act- the prestige happens when we gain respect and praise from our peers and society because we have a sheet of paper that says we have graduated from an institution created to graduate us for the sake of respect and praise.

    Meanwhile in the real world nearly all of the world's wealth and power is controlled by people who hold no degrees.

    In the case of the Government we are given lists of rules and regulations to determine our democracy. We are given fines, fees and taxes for things that do not benefit our self interests but we are told these things are for the common good. Governments are made to govern the people.

    The Government's prestige takes place when we feel safe and secure in our world but we have the opportunity to peek out into the violence of other nations. We can say to ourselves, well at least I'm not over there, I'm safe, my Government is protecting me. But it's our very Government that funds the violence in every nation on the planet so that we continue to feel safe and secure. America is home to the world, because all the world runs to America for aid and help. It takes before it can give, and it will give much less that it takes.

    In the case with the Church, we are given religions to exercise our spiritual will. With religion we are allowed to balance ourselves under the steady obedience of our God and dogma. The prestige of religion naturally comes after death, we are told what our award will be for the life we lived on earth. Yet it was the magic act of religion that most likely begot all others.

    If people are willing to forgo the powers/pleasure they have in life for the powers/pleasures they will receive in death- then all brands of wool can be pulled over their eyes. Someone once said "cookies, candy and ice cream were all invented as ways to get children to behave themselves." This is also true for religion.

    Dare we, look behind the stage and find the great magicians pulling the ropes. It was the dog Toto that exposed the Wizard in "The Wizard of Oz" an animal went beyond the veil. And sometimes it is our animal nature that takes us beyond the veil of deception.

    In the case of media, we are told just about everything possible to keep us from waking up to what we really are- higher beings have lower experiences. We must wonder why Men will climb high mountains only to view down at a place they just left. True media is first and foremost our highest vantage point and from there we can analyze what reality really means for us.

    The media's prestige is in the shock and awe itself. It doesn't take much to amaze us, but what is truly amazing is that we fall for the same tricks over and over again.

    FANTASTIC


    Amennnnnn!!!

    They have PLEDGED security, welfare of others, and morality as the core of what Americkkka stands for, when the TURN is that money and guns has always been and will always be the secret that hides behind all of the propaganda. The PRESTIGE of course are the all of the 9/11's (there have been many set up's) that they set up in order to profit from the awe, fear, and ignorance of a people who are hit with the next magic trick (war) when the cycle starts over with another PLEDGE of something like"this country's security".

    Great post Meta
