RIGHT and WRONG: the infinite shades of truth

“Abandon false ideas, that is all. There is no need of true ideas. There aren’t any.”

Nisargadatta (20th century Indian Advaita mystic)



This fake pandemic for some, or not so fake for others, has not only been the source of fears, worries and of a significant number of deaths among the already sick (and/or with a very low immune system) and those considered part of the “non-productive” band of society, but has been used for another purpose: ‘Divide and conquer’.


In truth, people will enter into wars, will fight and kill their family members, best friends, and neighbor in order to assert their rightness, unaware of the fact that everyone is wrong and all are right, depending on where they stand.

The fear monger, the deep state, both know very well how to use this datum to manipulate the masses.  Revolts and act of protest resulting in violence is what they wish for, this in order to justify extreme measures of control issued to “bring back safety” into the population.

“Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” 

“Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.”

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

Most of the time, we will find those people fomenting both sides.

For example: If they wish to vaccine the population, a campaign in favor of the vaccine is started (one or several campaigns). Of course they are going to use fear and safety to make this cause appealing.

On the other side, well knowing some people will actively disagree they will put someone in place to lead and direct the opposition.

This military tactic is called PSYOPS


Knowing an opposition is inevitable, the fear monger or/and deep state select someone  to lead the “rebels”. With minimum damage to the main goals, the ‘plant’ steers the opposition into ineffective actions and results that, although meaningless, give the opposition a feeling of gaining ground or the illusion of a sort of result.

Crowd calming deals, apparent compromises and simulated draws-back allows the manipulator to gain time and work undisturbed. While  the “rebel” pauses, waiting for a resolution, the other side, unhindered, further its plans.

The very majority of the time, people fight each other in wars unaware that, behind the scene, “their leaders” work, obey and get orders from the same guy.

So, when you choose a war, if you are in need of one or if you cannot withhold yourself from join one, choose carefully, but most important, do not trust anyone who tells you to sacrifice all you have, your family, your friends, you fellow man for a future beautiful world, because the beautiful world start where you are.

Your “war” for a better world start when you respect and help those in needs near you, by avoiding wasting food, and by stopping to generate tons of unnecessary garbage that has filled up our oceans and the third world countries.

You don’t have to go far. The further you go, the less control you have, and the more are the chances the ones in-charge, will take advantage of the situation to their own benefit as many have already done.

At the top of most no-profit organization are men who take your money (savings of the working class) to pay for their big salaries and for the creation of skillfully designed campaigns to publicized the very few people they “help” to gain more support, while,  at the bottom, people like you do voluntary work for free.

The pink, the blue or red ribbons you buy are fattening the pockets of the big bosses while, those dying, do not have a ride to the hospital or are unable to pay for their cures.


Regardless of what may appear, very seldom your enemy is the person in front of you. He usually never makes it to the front line.

You will always have to deal with someone else, someone bought by lies and promises, the fear monger/ the deep state never intended to keep.

As for me, you, and everyone else, we all have a very limited view of truth, if any.

For this, a very important step is to train ourselves to recognize lies.

“Abandon false ideas, that is all. There is no need of true ideas. There aren’t any.”

Nisargadatta (20th century Indian Advaita mystic)

“The surest way to be deceived is to think oneself more clever than others.”

François de La Rochefoucauld

Next time you look at someone with different ideas, pause and think for a moment.

Why this person is believing this?

He might be scared, he might have been given false data, or is you, who has received false information?

Who has interested in the fight?

Who is gaining? and when I say gaining I mean GAINING?

You might need to protect yourself from the attacks of people nearby, people blinded by fear, lies and confusion, but remember, they are not your real enemy.

They are been manipulated like everyone of us. They have been fooled into believing there is only one reality.

Do whatever it is needed to be safe but DO NOT engage into war against them. They are not your real enemy.


While climbing up a mountain the view changes.

The same scenario seen by happy people changes considerably from the perception of the same scenario by people under a lot of stress or suffering from depression. The cultural background, the expertise in certain areas, are also a contributing and modifying factor on the person’s perception of truth.

What it might appear a bad news to one on a given subject or area,  could be a great news to another with a different type of  knowledge or background.

“Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects.”

Will Rogers.

Imagine a group of people walking up a mountain.

If you would ask them what they see, you would get different answers depending, not only on their emotional state, but also on where they are and from where they look.

The one at the bottom, will tell you there are only trees. He is right and he is telling you the truth. The one a little bit higher will also see few houses, the one higher would mention the existence of a lake, while the one at the very top might even see a far away land on the other side of the sea.

They are all right, even if they seem to report different things.

If you put them together, they might even argue with each other trying to assert their own truth. There is no house, there is no lake and there is no other land!

If they never made it to the top of the mountain, if they are only aware of what it is in front of their nose, they will fight and try to refute any other reality.

“The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.”  F. Scott Fitzgerald said that in 1936.

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”  (Aristotle)

So, they are all right and at the same time they are all wrong, as, in all cases, there is more to it than what they see.

Arguing does not change the scenario for anyone of them. If you really understand this point, you will be able to love people for who they are and for what they believe.


“The surest way to be deceived is to think of yourself more clever than others, and neglecting opposing views because you don’t agree with them.

If you want to be a critical thinking and prevent yourself from falling into self-righteous, self-serving conclusions, be open to other ideas besides your own thinking model.”

Fitzgerald’s model of thinking. (https://medium.com/personal-growth/f-scott-fitzgerald-on-first-rate-intelligence-7cf8ea002794)

“Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens’ lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons.”

 Ron Paul


And if we move a little bit higher than the top of the mountain, where the mind does not have a chance to rule, we will discover there are no sides, no right or wrong, just a beautiful flow of energy.

“[C]hange is not merely a force of destruction.
Every form is really a pattern of movement, and every living thing is like the river, which, if it did not flow out, would never have been able to flow in.
Life and death are not two opposed forces; they are simply two ways of looking at the same force, for the movement of change is as much the builder as the destroyer.
The human body lives because it is a complex of motions, of circulation, respiration, and digestion.
To resist change, to try to cling to life, is therefore like holding your breath: if you persist you kill yourself.
In thinking of ourselves as divided into “I” and “me,” we easily forget that consciousness also lives because it is moving.
It is as much a part and product of the stream of change as the body and the whole natural world. If you look at it carefully, you will see that consciousness— the thing you call “I”— is really a stream of experiences, of sensations, thoughts, and feelings in constant motion.
But because these experiences include memories, we have the impression that “I” is something solid and still, like a tablet upon which life is writing a record.
Yet the “tablet” moves with the writing finger as the river flows along with the ripples, so that memory is like a record written on water— a record, not of graven characters, but of waves stirred into motion by other waves which are called sensations and facts.”
― Alan W. Watts, The Wisdom of Insecurity

  1. This is a good article. Especially emphasizing who is and who is not an enemy. The most difficult part – considering two opposing ideas while maintaining objectivity. Very good work. Happy new year!
