PART 2 of 2
Weird Ways of the Truth-haters
When we make the quiet determination to find out what is right, and by that same attitude are also aware of the moment-by-moment chances to forego our former selfish advantage-taking, then we are on our way.
But if we fail at each fork of the road of new opportunity, we will have excuses welling up inside us instead of Truth—and what should have been effortless graceful motion towards meaning and purpose becomes a clammy self-consciousness that cries for relief and forgetfulness. Such a soul-need calls the body to conjure up images and invent weird remedies and pleasures so that we can immerse our ego-minds in pleasure and unconsciousness.
There is nothing wrong with accomplishment, providing we go about it in the right way. Seek first the Kingdom of Heaven and all things will be added without guilt—but most of us get this principle in reverse, and we give up principle for gain and try to make it look and feel right—but we can’t.
When you turn your back on Principle in favor of personal gain, you pit yourself against the Power that made you, and out of you grows every unclean thing. If you do not love Truth, then automatically you hate Truth. You then become a multi-layer cake of lies and excuses, acquiring enervating habits that lead to disease; habits designed mostly to ease the pain of fault. Escaping truth, you gladly yield yourself repeatedly to temptation’s offering rather than suffer the humiliation of facing your mistake and going the straight and narrow way.
As a criminal is afraid when justice comes too close, so is the egocentric on the defensive whenever common sense comes too close. The more wrong turns a willful person takes in meeting life, the more he is haunted by his Conscience and the more fearful he becomes—thanks to the “security” of his habit. A person could not take the next wrong turning were it not for the mind-dimming power of pleasure. Through his various indulgences he thinks he is right because he feels the security of not knowing that he is wrong.
If a criminal were to start agreeing with the law, he would have no reason to fear it. Just being on the side of the law would be a comfort in itself. So it would be if you gave up your egocentric self-centered existence. As long as you are on the other side of the spiritual law, you will always be wrong, guilty, and you will live like a haunted, hunted man. All your energies will be spent on defeating the law rather than in something constructive and valuable. Make no mistake about it, even though you might accomplish a great good without God, to prove how right and great you are, you will still feel wrong and frustrated for it. And like a frustrated child, you may even want to destroy your own accomplishment that stands there mocking you and reminding you of your guilt.
Peddling “Solace” to the Sufferers
The failure, sickness, and confusion of the flock is the “glory” of the blind guru of vice. He is “considerate” of their needs and caters lovingly to them. But what a devil he is in disguise! He is the breeding ground for anarchy and corruption. The drug peddler and the “respectable” physician are equally responsible for the turmoil. Were it not for the comfort they provide, the people might have a chance to find themselves.
Both the “respectable” and the recognized criminals are frightened of the Truth seeker; only vain, weak and confused people are deceived by the guile of criminals. Only sick people need a physician—it’s when people’s spirits are low that they need their drink or the opiate of their false religions.
Regardless of their degrees or the letters after their names, men are still men and egotists at heart. The power and glory seekers, the modern-day scribes, Pharisees and businessmen, with a few outflanked exceptions, are corrupting and dehumanizing their fellow citizens for the sake of profit and glory for their egos. A proud person feels strong, healthy and worthy compared to the pitiful needs of other people. His own unreasonable life is bearable when others are more sick, confused and guilty than him.
In this way, he is able to veil his own errors and continue enjoying his unquestioned, self-righteous lordship over others. The common man strives in his own private way to lord it over his fellows, and the professionals lead him on, profiteering as referees and as healers of wounded bodies and devastated psyches.
Conspiracy of the Mad Scientists
Today, as in bygone days, you will still find the false “champions of good,” similar to those who accused Socrates of “perverting the minds of youth” and those who pointed the finger of “blasphemy and heresy” at Christ. There are still people that stand by, permitting the martyrs to die. Doctors resent a healthy man, and ministers condemn those without a church.
The simple way is still hated, mocked and derided:
“Get that guy out of here!”
“He’s evil, crazy, send him to the psychiatrist!” you hear the madmen cry for the blood of the honest man.
If people were WHOLE, they would not need their problem solvers, their own good sense would re-direct and restrain them. But, alas, there is a wicked conspiracy to keep the world sick and confused. No, it’s neither a political movement nor an international cartel; it’s the evolution of hell on earth. So beware of the beast man, for he is the devil’s pawn. He could be your own mother or father ... the doctor who treats your ulcer ... or even your lover.
So depraved has man become that he is forced to enact an endless series of outer regulations and medical controls just for survival. We have now arrived at a social evolvement on the outside that we should have found inwardly—and we call it “progress.” Outwardly, we face the very laws we should have loved in our own hearts. Yet progress offers us no solace. It permits us to degenerate until the “wild tiger” within us evolves above law and progress to require more of the same.
Knowing this fact, those who love to govern will not allow us freedom from that governance. They are forever introducing new legislation and drugs into our system. Never do they introduce love! People get the kind of government they deserve, said Socrates, and that’s a truth if ever one was uttered. The people will continue to vote for champions for their sins and greed. Therefore we continue to be governed, ruled by men who glorify in laying down the law to others.
But suppose we became so right within that we didn’t need medicine, drugs, drink and laws, and would never even think let alone do anything wrong. Could medicine and law really object to this? Strange as it may seem, they would, because, though all their efforts seemingly point towards a service to the people, the opposite is really the case. But you will not be privileged to witness this until you have assumed an objective frame of reference and are persecuted for it.
With each successive stage of “control” and suppression that we grow to need, there is growing resistance to it and thus the need for even more controls. The problem is that most of us hate the truth! More and more clearly we see our dependence on “mad scientists,” hired to exaggerate our sense of importance and invent new ways to help us stagger a few more steps along the road to egocentric oblivion. Our needs finance research into new ways to control our minds and bodies. We are paying madmen to dig up knowledge of the mind that should never exist, and that knowledge will one day be used against us by those who want power.
Man’s nature is enslaved to the dictates of outer controls, or it is mentally, emotionally and physically in revolt against such—“services.” What a dilemma. We can’t live with or without them! Except we find the true way to live.
Human Volcanoes about to Blow
We have all labored to be free from the inhibitions of Conscience. In so doing, we have rationalized a selfish existence and licensed other people to pamper and support selfishness. Thus we all need external restraints, pacifiers, stimulants and remedies in an attempt to restore a sense of order and balance to our minds and bodies.
But all is not made well. The people of the earth remain seething, boiling volcanoes ready to erupt. The same state of dependency exists on the outside as it should naturally on the inside. But outward dependency leaves us without the fringe benefits of health, happiness and real life. We require those who pander to us to provide us with our ego-soothing pacifiers, these opiates furnishing us with a facade of piety and “rightness,” along with a sense of being alive and “healthy.” In every society, such arrangements are defended under the banner of “patriotism.” Yes, people literally fight and die for the institutions that corrupt them.
From the day we are born we are corrupted by society, but society doesn’t have to worry about being found out or accused of this terrible crime since it rests secure in the knowledge that our corrupted egos will defend that fault. The ego cannot admit its wrongs. It will not face its faults and weaknesses. An ego likes to believe that whatever shape it finds itself in must be the right one. We embrace the institutions and customs that formed us.
People prefer not to destroy traditional support since they require the comfort it provides. However, there comes a time when the people finally start to suspect the treachery of their “friends-in-need” and their leaders. Then it’s time to start a war, where we can all hate wrong collectively and feel right about it (and thereby not have to face the wrong of tradition). During the time of such a war, the champions of tradition, fearful of their own lives, will encourage us to battle for our “rights” as though the enemy were without and not within.
Enemies of the Truth
Some of us are ready for the Truth, and we represent a threat to those who profit from keeping us in misery. As long as they can accomplish this end with their evil rhetoric, they will do so.
“Alcohol is a medical problem!” they cry. “You are physically sick. The fault does not lie within you.” This is the panderer’s frantic attempt at self-justification.
And while they pretend to search for the “cure,” we who are most in need of it die!
The hope of any cure is really the sickness. But the cure also grants one license to live an even more lawless, unreasonable and uncorrected life, thus granting more power to those in authority, justifying their position and inspiring them to “help” you with further research, “cures” and ultimately, by this process, society is led into a condition vulnerable to war.
These authorities make you much worse and—before you can discover what they are doing to you—they will prevent civil war by giving you a bigger external threat to fight than they are seen to represent. The urge to fight an outside enemy instead of fighting the “security” and life’s-blood of your corruption is virtually irresistible.
The blind leaders of the blinded could not stand it if you were to get better because they are still glorying in their own follies, such as smoking and drinking, and are corrupting you for a profit. If you found your True Self, they would be faced with their own wretchedness and would lose their power. They do not seek life; instead they seek glory and riches at your expense. Hence, they all discourage you from any meaningful discourse and knowledge that will expose them.
Do you know what gives men the right to speak truly? It is the Inner Law that we have come to need, that now stands outside.
The Day of the Lord
The time of Satan here on earth is grinding to a halt, tangled up in the “wily web of legality” of his “own” making. (This is part of God’s plan to force evil to do His work—what a frustration it will be to them when they find out!) Now the Truth can begin to shine!
Man has made his laws in order to survive, but if they are to work they must be those Godly rules Satan really despises. Satan’s laws become repression and evil, he preaches sterilized religions that do not save, his followers are healed and are never truly well.

A million martyrs have died to expose the institutions we need, “freedom,” medicine and the law. But the Day of the Lord is on us! Now that Satan (in man) is all “tangled-up” and almost powerless in the face of your new knowledge—live it “up!” Let Truth ring out and Righteousness ring! And let Satan gnash his teeth.
Now live so perfectly, so right and honest ... By virtue of love you will supersede the authority of the law. You only fall under authority of the law and medicine through falling from grace. Living by the grace of the Lord you may be hated by the authorities for leading the people out of their hands, and as they hate you, so will they, like the apostle Paul, see the false righteousness of their own zeal.

Roy Masters who in his 80s continues to broadcast the longest-running counseling show in talk radio history, his internationally syndicated daily radio program Advice Line, grew up in pre-WWII England. He started his journey toward understanding human nature when as a teen he saw a stage hypnotist at a vaudeville show in Brighton. The hypnotist easily put volunteer subjects in a spell and made them do outlandish things, like dancing with a broom and forgetting their own names.
Puzzled by the hypnotist's mysterious power, Roy distinctly remembers pondering the question: "Why can't hypnotism be used to make people act sensibly, rather than foolishly?" Inspired by the idea of harnessing this baffling force for good, he later pursued the art of hypnotism and established a successful hypnotherapy practice.
After several years of practice, Masters made his central and pivotal discovery about the root of people's emotional problems, addictions and complexes. He realized that people did not need hypnosis, because their core problem was that they are already hypnotized not by a clever stage performer, but by the stresses, pressures and seductions of daily life.
He used his knowledge to discover a way to help us become de-hypnotized, and discovered that the root of the power of negative suggestion lay in our wrong emotional response, that of resentment. Masters' remarkably effective exercise, a simple observation technique called Be Still and Know is at the core of his unmatched track record in helping people overcome even the most serious mental-emotional problems, and is the centerpiece of a successful program within the U.S. military community (Patriot Outreach) that is helping thousands of military personnel and their families cope with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
