On Truth

“This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back…..You take the blue pill, the story ends. You wake up and believe…whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill…..you stay in wonderland…and I show you just how deep the rabbit hole goes.”

The most amazing thing about our work, this way of life, is Song and the ability to connect Song to Song with everything, including and especially with people.

Working with Song offers the possibility of connecting Song to Song, heart to heart, of engendering trust and with it create real connections.

Connecting heart to heart, touching each others hearts and in so doing grow together.

With that trust also comes responsibility, something we often feel has left the spiritual scene.

As we mentioned in the past, there are no rules within Ka Ta See, there is but one principle, we do our best not to hurt others. Living in an interactive universe within a culture so completely buried in masks, that’s not always easy or even possible, but we try.

There are a great many gifted people out there who have a sincere desire to help and are very capable of doing so. Many of us have a sincere desire to help ourselves, each other and the world.

But, there are others who have come to prominence, not necessarily by sharing the truth of things. It’s more like they are sharing their own version of the truth and some of that appeals so greatly to a cultural mask dynamic that these people rise to prominence and more and more of us blindly believe what they have to offer.

People share a great deal of these sorts of things with us.

Some because they believe it could be of interest to our work, others because they are so enamored with what they have found they think it’s the manna from heaven and they can’t help but share.

Others still are merely wanting to find out what we think of what they have found and if it rings true for us.

And some things just make their way to us almost as a fluke.

The information people share and often ask us to check out ranges from truly fascinating and definitely worth exploring to the bazar and obscure (and I don’t use these words lightly in this context, being well aware that parts of our explorations likely fall in that category for a lot of people).

But what is often surprising is how completely and utterly masky many of these things which find their way to us are.

Surprisingly at times, or not, some of the more whacko things people share with us are from people who have earned the respect of a sizable group in their field.

As I said, some of the material is truly groundbreaking and worth exploring, however, much of the material and the information is little more than wild guesses, grasping at straws, creating an elaborate fantasy which appeals to the imagination and (mask) longing of the masses.

The problem we see with all of it, is that most people, not all, but most, blindly believe what they find and feel compelled to share.

Our take on it and our recommendation, DO NOT blindly believe anything.

Nothing!

Nothing!

Nothing!

Information is just data. Relevant data as it may be, but it’s still just date.

Keep it, store it, research it, if you’re so compelled. Reference it with your own knowingness and if you can verify it, or dismiss it, with YOUR OWN experiences you have something. But until then, it’s just data.

For example, if someone strikes fear in your heart with the information they share, I’m willing to lay bets their intentions, consciously or unconsciously, are not to help you wake up, or to help humanity wake up. And I don’t give a damn what their credentials are.

Fear has been used through the ages to keep complete control over people.

The threat of burning in hell is likely the most well known example.

Now granted, as a culture, we’ve turned fear into a god and have learned to worship it, so it’s not that difficult to scare people. But there is a difference between inadvertently frightening someone, temporarily, and making them purposefully afraid for their life and their future.

Look into your heart; is the message striking fear into the place within you which should be filled with unconditional love and happiness and clarity?

Another one of my favorites is when people preach about “evolving”, that the future of humanity, our future, is to become ever increasingly “evolved beings”. I take real issue with that, or make that several, cause I have a real thing about people talking about this imaginary hierarchy of better-than beings.

Whenever you believe and make others blindly believe that our future is to clammer our way into the ranks of ever-increasing better-than beings, that we are only here as humans as a punishment and to work off our karma, or perhaps a mandatory school program for the lowly ones, and when we do it often enough we will eventually rise above the lowly earthly world to a higher, better, form of existence, you belittle and deny the experience and magic, the sacredness and beauty of being human, of the here and now moment and everything else in our universe.

It’s a thoughtform religions milk to the gills with many variations on the theme. It is nothing more than a lie.

It says as humans we are inferior and Earth is but a penal colony and we are here as lowly humans only as punishment and our true goal is to learn from our sins of previous lives, the goal is to live off our karma so we can one day evolve out of here.

What a load!

Being human is without a doubt among the most amazing experiences we can choose as spiritual beings.

To have a body, to touch and be touched, to share love, to be loved, to know unconditional love, to know the joy and power and beauty of our Song, to connect Song to Song from the perspective of a body, of a human consciousness, that’s truly sacred.

Sacred.

This is the Holy experience.

This is real magic.

There is little that compares.

If you cannot see that, if you have to deny that for yourself, if you have to teach your disciples and devotees to deny that which is their most sacred part of all of their human existence, in their human lives, you have no business teaching anything, let alone claim to teach the mysteries of life.

So when you hear this crap about having to work off your karma and you will eventually become enlightened and be free and of course better-than, all I can tell you is: you are free now.

You’re just so addicted to believing the lies about not being free and being inferior as a human.

The only thing that is going on is that you are addicted to your mask beliefs and all you actually have to do to undo this is learn your Song and let go of the programming.

Our approach? Don’t blindly believe anything, I mean literally nothing.

Every time you blindly believe anything you give your power away to whoever is offering the glorious “revelations”.

Simply don’t do it.

If you become afraid because of something someone is sharing, you are believing at least some of what is being shared.

You can do two things at that point to deal with your fear.

One, use it as a reminder that you don’t have to blindly believe anything and stop blindly believing what you are hearing.

And two, look at the masks which conjure up the fear to control you, and let them go, and then go back to the feeling of knowing and living your Song.

Song is truth, masks are lies.

If we believe the lies, then we are living in the past or some pretend world and we are easily manipulated and controlled. If we live our Song, our truth, we smell bullshit lightyears away and just ignore it, or take care of it, if it feels necessary.

As I mentioned above, there are no rules within Ka Ta See, except we do our best to not hurt others. Living in an interactive world and universe such as ours, that’s not always entirely possible, but we strive.

What we do have are things not to live by.

No blind beliefs.
No judgments.
No assumptions.
No jumping to conclusions
No expectations.
No arrogance.

We’ll share more details in the coming weeks about each of these “NO NOs”, which we’ve affectionately come to refer to them as.

In the meantime, copy them, print them out, put them on post-it notes and stick them on your desk or computer screen somewhere.

Have them pop up every time your computer boots up or your mobile device turns on.

Put them in your wallet, into the book you’re reading, on your TV screen, on your bathroom mirror, on your rearview mirror and any other place you might feel they could come in handy.

And, every time something comes across your consciousness or somebody wants you to really believe in what they are sharing and have to offer, just check it against these six NO NOs, or check your response against those six NO NOs.

When you do, your life and the world you live in will begin to look very different and ultimately never be the same.

And, most importantly, know your Song, know your truth and go back to the feeling and living of it. Identify with your Song.

Love and Song,

Helmut

    Dear Helmut,
    “Believe nothing, no matter where you read it or who has said it, not even if i have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.” is what I am getting, in part, from your post. Can you guess who the above quote is attributed to? Oh, only Buddha. You are in good company I am not a Buddhist, but I am a follower of truth, and that is why I follow this Blog.

    Stay True and Awesome.

    Sandi
    P.S. I got that quote from a refrigerator magnet…go figure….kinda like putting it on a Post-it on the mirror 😉

      “Believe nothing, no matter where you read it or who has said it, not even if i have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.”

      You are sharing something here Sandi which points out the major problem with believing anything, including something which agrees with our reason or our own common sense.

      Since most of us are so deeply invested in our mask dynamics, our own reason, and what we would think of as common sense, are equally based on those mask dynamics. What I refer to as selective reasoning.

      So no, I don’t agree with the little fat guy.

      What I am saying is don’t believe anything until you have been able to verify or dismiss it based on YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE while you are in your Song.

      Everything else is just data, interesting as it may be, and appealing as it may be to our own reasoning and common sense, it’s still just data.

      If we are searching for truth we have to learn to rely on our own knowingness based on our OWN EXPERIENCE in Song, everything else is just data.

      Thanks for sharing.

      Song to Song,

      Helmut

        Thank you, Helmut, for sharing you ideas. There is more than one path to Truth. I am right, and you are wrong are the very ideas that separate.

        Please explore your choice of language. Words are truly miracles, the Hetakas said. We create with them. What are you creating when you call a beloved soul, “the little fat guy?”

        With love,
        Sandi

          My apologies Sandi, I did not mean any disrespect or offense.

          Kay shared so many stories with me about Domano being irreverent in order to alter perspective, I guess it rubbed off.

          Love and Song,

          Helmut

            No worries, Helmut. We are all in this together. Can’t wait to see the next post.

            Love,
            Sandi

    Having experience the so-called ‘enlightened’ teachings of a particular group of people, who foster terror, let alone fear; I agree wholeheartedly with what you have to say. There is such a plethora of information that besieges the seeker, so much of it conflicting. When all is said and done, so much of it disempowers the individual, and robs him or her of the simple joy of being alive. Discovering our song and sharing song to song is beautiful. Embodying the best of who we are and making beauty wherever we go helps to keep us aligned with wholesomeness. I love these posts. Bless you for making the effort to share with us. Marie

      Learning to discern what is aiming to take our power away and who truly has our best interest in mind, what is waking up and what is just another (spiritual) way of keeping us asleep is at the very heart of a desire to learn to live a life in Song.

      Thanks so much for sharing.

      Song to Song,

      Helmut
