Facets of Truth in a world of lies
By Ken La Rive
What can be more important to perceive and possess in this world, even when compared to the blessings of Love and Liberty, but the finding of Truth? No matter what road we take, our guiding light is our profound quest to find and realize Truth. Without it, all meaning, all goals, all intellectual and spiritual pursuits would be futile, and of little value.
Most men have not picked up that quest as it is just too difficult. The great majority have accepted the coerced dominion of masterful men as their own reality.
Many philosophers through the eons have described this great loss of Liberty in many ways, but in essence it can be referred to as slavery of the spirit. Machiavelli, in his book called "The Prince," explains the concept of voluntary servitude. It is a scientific method of instilling a reality in a person and society for complete dominance and control of mind and soul by any means necessary. It is the use of hard won, moral and ethical concepts, and good, bad, right and wrong are wielded any way necessary for their focused pursuits... indeed, the concept is evil incarnate, as it eliminates one of our greatest gifts, free will.
They would use a mother's love for her child to sell a dangerous product, knowing the ingredients are harmful, and a man to give up his life to promote a concept called democracy, which has never existed since the dawn of men... all for war's corporate profits. They would implement false flags to achieve their purposes, destroy whole civilizations, poison the minds and spirit of innocence... anything at all, because their true god is a black bottom line...
In a world created by them, a lawless and immoral world of lies, Liberty and Truth always remains but a dream. Even the definition of True Love, a precious gift of selflessness, is redesigned as lust... And it is well known by them that the rewriting of history, with the distortion of Truth in the here and now, is what keeps them in power. A dominate and powerful government, with limitless resources, bought and paid for with fiat currency printed out of thin air is hard to understand and resist, as it enslaves us in a debt that can never be paid... As they promote a common mindset of weakness and lack of value, they replace self-responsibility with dependence, increment by increment...
Of all of the profound moments in our lives... the birth of a child, the death of a parent, the waste and horrors of war, even contemplating our place under God's great umbrella... all conscious realization of life's profound experiences come from our ability to see it truthfully. What can be more horrible for humanity but to be slaves, of body, mind and spirit?
Alfred Tennyson wrote, “But what am I? An infant crying in the night? An infant crying for the light? And with no language but a cry!” And what is Tennyson referring to here but the light of Truth? And when Henry David Thoreau wrote that "Most men live their lives in quiet desperation and go to their graves with the song still in them." Can we not contemplate the true reason? Was it the lack of truth, or the failing of the person to seek it?
We are charged with responsibility from birth to death, as we are both intellectual and spiritual by nature. The responsibility for finding it is entirely ours, and though truth can indeed be considered a survival technique, we put our complete trust in institutions and individuals they lobby into office, without the truth of what they represent, and who they actually are. We trust without seeking Truth, and we do it over and over again.
Some say they are waiting for death to finally give them an ultimate realization of truth, while others depend on human interpretations to embrace as their own, like the footnotes in a bible or propaganda of a University English Professor. They let the words of others flow from their mouths as original thoughts, and few understand that we alone are accountable for finding it...
What value, what importance can be placed on an element such as this, the ultimate axiom of every life? Truth is of singular and primary value, ultimate, definitive, and inspiring. Without it we can never make a viable decision, and will be manipulated and coerced to the very last day.
Growth is not only adding to our intellect, but at time to rewrite over past understandings we now find bogus, draft upon draft, to the very core of our reality... And we must, at some point in our quest, admit that the Truth we held so dear and profound when we were young, is redesigned again and again with further life experience. We grow to realize that many of the truths we held in our hearts and minds were wrought by worldly experiences only to that point. Truth we once held in great value, might be seen and understood to be lacking validity, as we further develop and grow emotionally with new experiences. The reason for this is simple, as in that particular instance, that very point in our lives, we had not yet found ultimate truth...
Let me explain:
Truth lies at the very epicenter of our minds and hearts to be realized, one of intellect and one of spirit, like two metaphorical lenses focusing on the future. It is well- hidden under countless layers of man-made hyperbole, myopic and narrow justifications taught to have legitimacy, and it has caused much unhappiness, confusion, with spurious and convoluted realities in our mind's eye. Truth, at times, cannot yet be realized or understood, hiding in what might be considered plain sight... It is no simple matter to realize, to even recognize, and it takes effort... The ultimate truth in your life comes from your efforts, from the inside out, not the outside in.
Truth is well- hidden in the folds of what we perceive as reality, underneath the smoke and mirrors of our education and the curtains set before our eyes by many teachers. Some tried to instill their thoughts into our psyche with Loving hearts, some out of ignorance, and some for selfishness, but all of it, to the very last, was designed to control our thoughts, emotions, opinions, belief systems, judgments, and to become a viable and valuable part of a particular society, or aspect, one way or the other... And yet, without truth, all of these words have little or no meaning, as extensions of these ideals are honor, justice, principle, moral code or compass, law and many more... all of whom could not manifest itself without Truth.
Truth is the last element to be found at the very core of who we are and what we can eventually become, and yet few know of this most amazing concept, that finding Truth is our ultimate goal. Let me restate that it is one of he greatest of all gifts, even surpassing Love and Liberty, is the gift of free will, intellect and consciousness, and is the only tool we have to find true Liberty and emancipation from the shackles that bind us to worldly powers. Indeed, Truth is our guiding light.
There has to be something laudable, something worthy of our precious lives and endeavors, something to work for greater then ourselves, and this is the idea that there is indeed an ultimate truth, and this truth is ours to find. Also called a universal truth, and it is a core element of each person's soul, and it is so pure, so elemental, so fundamental, it cannot be broken down, divided, or denied. That is the primary goal of a singular life of value, and though some might call it the golden mean, purely mathematical, and others God inspired, truth is the core essence of humanity in every aspect.
That is the manifest (ultimate) destiny of all men, whether they have come to realize it or not... and of all of the manufactured exaggerations designed to divide and separate us for power and control, this is the one singularity that is universal and uniting for all humanity... Truth. With Truth, everything is possible, and any entity, corporation, or institution that intentionally hides it, distorts it, manipulates it for their own selfish designs, are enemies of humanity, and should be abolished. No enemy should be more revolted and feared, as denying Truth is the bane of all that is good on this green Earth.
When men seek truth above all, Liberty will be theirs. It is our reason for being. Trust no one with your life, and the direction of your immortal soul will belong to you alone, and so, take responsibility for your own life, and do your own homework. Once you take up this standard, and pledge it from both mind and heart, truth will set you free. Ask a positive question of life, and you will get it in like kind...
Author's note: This following two paragraphs are taken from a book of my poems compiled in 1999, not published. It explains the metaphor comparison of a diamond to a human soul. A diamond is so abundant and virtually worthless without the controlling hand of men, and our souls are worthless without truth to light its way.
"Sometimes it is the most simple that seems the most beautiful to the mind of men. Our spiritual side is the most artful side, and filled with all of the wonder and speculation this life can offer. Tempered by awesome and unknown powers, and from a source buried deep inside, it is carried by God's likeness, a vessel called soul. It was given to all men as a gift of hope, and though it is sometimes considered by philosophers to be the fundamental core of men, who can deny it is profoundly beautiful and precious... and yet, so very misunderstood, and taken for granted.
To attempt to understand, it seems we must hold the concept up to our mind's eye, in metaphor. As a lens, our soul is like an uncut diamond, pure, perfect, and unrealized. Our reason for being, our purpose, our meaning of life, is to learn truth. When we do so, even the smallest of instances, a facet is cleaved on the face of our soul, and the light of Truth illuminates and clarifies. If what is realized from the experience is righteousness, then the facet is a clear window where the light of new profound questions and ideas take form. You see, every question we ask of this life is answered in like kind, as the law of cause and effect, and what you sow so too will you reap. This is the universal law of attraction, and an ultimate Truth. If revenge, wrath, hatred, bitterness, anger or any form of negativity is the motivation for the questions you ask this life, you will get that in like kind. It will cloud your soul like the carbon inclusions found in an earthly diamond, and value will be diminished with its inability to absorb light. . And then, as this truth becomes realized, you will move in the world of men emphatically knowing that what you are is what you think you are, after all."

Like quicksilver, it magnetically ran, from
Incandescent blue-black ether it crossed, on
Sparked jewel wires of ozone’s dynatron,
Unzipping the gale’s zephyr winds...
In through the thundering voice of friction, by
Cool of converging wet and heat, with
Atmospheric barometric pressure,
Flowing through channels of strata vapor...
Charged from friction’s inversion, on
Grounded capacity and relinquished voltage, it
Rides suspended through charged electrons,
Gilding the membranes of my eyes...
Seeking its own level of power, it
Drives the rain in a rumbling scream, where
The ache in my bones tell of its passing,
Flickering my shadow as a glittering entity...

We passed hot days behind pastel curtains and cooling wood fans. Her blond pale beauty glided from room to room in flowing gowns of alabaster and coral. Smiles reflected glowing drapes of beach glare on soft porcelain skin. Damp breath and whispered laughter filled my ears as we lounged on the verandah hammock. Knots of creaking hemp calmed my mind as the afternoon turned to evening in each others arms.
In the twilight cool we would drive our polished red Stellar under the shade of giant breadfruit and palm, darting along Georgetown boulevards of pink stucco and aqua-blue sun-blinds. With sweet dusk breezes on our faces, we would search for rare treasures through cooling cavalcades of multicolored boutiques.
Women in ironed white summer dresses, and men in colored cotton shirts, moved slowly along the boardwalk, glowing festivity in the late day sun. Refracting light danced from the shaded ceilings over their heads, shielding their eyes from the shimmering glare of golden sea-sparkle.
Mingling with tourists, we would watch the sun melt as glinting gold on the tide, and breathe the chilled night breezes of Caribbean spice, sea salt, poinciana, periwinkle, and rum.
From tables of crisp linen, we hardly noticed our Cayman waiter floating past, refilling our “sundowners” from a frosty pink pitcher of Pimm’s cup. Shells of lobster and bowls of conch salad are brought, followed shortly by dishes of fried plantain slices and scoops of stuffed land crab. Flashes of small florescent green parrots squawked goodnight in the darkening gloom of lofty mahogany trees. As I sat back comfortably in my painted wicker chair, the last patches of sun flickered as a rosy halo around Maddy’s head. We spoke without words, as only lovers do.
Somewhere along the beach of strung lights and a new moon, floated the sounds of children’s revelry, and the magic clang of steel drums. Wavelets chimed like broken glass beyond the rusty rail, and tiny rainbow fish danced in the shallows of crystal water, drawn by the hope of a tossed cracker crumb. I caught her dreamy glance toward the blue-black horizon band and a pair of pink-white schooner sails bellowing to a safe night’s harbor. Her laughter was music, and as I held her hand I closed my eyes... and a quiet lull of calmness would fill me...
He sold his heart that bore his dead,
And took the hard road where it led.
Riddles of truth beneath his curse,
Soon became his universe.
Glory carved him sick with fear,
Found him turn with caustic tears.
Naked, his scars are all he’d known,
As on the field he bled alone.
Bent and sure he wielded pain,
Wove his will with gilded chain.
Presumed the advantage in a brawl,
A roan that abandoned one and all.
Stood for nothing but his own,
Lord in his kingdom of barren throne.
Melodious the cries, in a mind turned cold,
Paid with blood, dark gems and gold.
All life was a weapon for his own game,
Found pleasure in hurting wherever it came.
Made mockery of law on wasted breath,
And held in his hand the workings of death.
But alas there came forth a measure of fate,
Cyclic it rose and gathered in shape.
An action of righteousness greater then he,
That struck him in spite to his very knees.
His head is pushed back from the bars of his cage,
A monster at bay with a smoldering rage.
Balanced, subdued, and caught on a wire,
A black angel that burns in his own fire.

The Crown Jewel of Truth: The lost books of The Delphian Society
Truth is a very rare commodity today. Yes, it is a product, both valued and abhorred, depending on who wants to use it, and why. The powers that now influence our world have gained an amazing scientifically designed ability to control our minds, using the many avenues that can bend our perception of Truth.
They are trying to hold the very keys to every original thought we have, or think we have, and yet, most would fight to the death to deny it. Our ego pushes back from embarrassment, and no one likes to think that they have been played, or lied to. Most will not question their reality, their preconceptions, or the authority that spreads like an umbrella over every aspect of their lives. Trust, is a lot easier than self reflection, and yet it is a universal truth that if there is no growth, life will wither and die... Truth is the catalyst for a viable future, of positive growth...
Our true masters...
These same oblique tentacles have the ability to reach and influence our free will, and they are doing the same all around the world. When they complete the circumference, when they touch and grab hold, the New World Order will be the ultimate power on planet Earth. Nothing like it has ever existed before, and it will be the matrix for the next transition of humanity. You and I, and every person on the planet, will be on the grid.
These elitist oligarchs are the true winners of war, from one Banking Cartel absorbing another, to newly financed conglomerate corporations of war machines and engineers. They all expand, each and every one, taking life from the ashes of their defeated competition. Every surviving institution pulls the strings of our government, and is cemented in place, out of reach, and hidden from view. They own us.
From their cooperative will and influence, everything seems possible, as prescribed from scientifically designed think-tanks to record-gathering super computers... Their will can infiltrate from one government to another by the use of a deep state, a shadowy coup d'état, and any process they prescribe is paid for with our Liberty, our blood, the fruits of our labor, our inheritance, and our hopes and dreams. All wars, and the mindsets prescribed to play them out, are financed by a bank. All wars are banker wars. And what do we get from all of the death and destruction? From 6 trillion to 20 trillion in debt, in just ten years... and we are not allowed to look at these transactions...
Liberty and self government
We the people might seem incapable of self government when observed, as it has never existed in the history of the world. And yet, there is a salvation held in the heart of every man, a value that cannot be denied. He yearns for Liberty from Tyranny. Liberty, even lost Liberty, pulls at his heart, and it is the wind in his standard. No doubt, mindsets are taught to us from mother's knee, and every waking moment in our lives, and these mindsets can be so perverted, opposed to our most fundamental survival techniques, or human nature, that we self-destruct in it's poison.
The solace of Truth, and the enemies of humanity
Look around, you will find this uninspired mindset attaching itself to your loving family, your community full of crime and antisocial accolades, and you must guard your own mind from these influences that attempt to strangle your very soul. Even the concept of God is through the lens of some force-fed institutional ideologue, and how much of your faith has come from your own independent investigation, and reflection? How much of what you believe is actually true, and why would myth be such a comfort? What can give more solace than Truth? Let us, for just a moment, take pause... How much does truth mean to you, when you are nothing but a slave without it? What would you be, as you blindly move through life without direction? Yes, those who have the ability to distort Truth, owns the minds and hearts of men. And they, without a doubt, are the true enemies of humanity.
Our man-made concepts
We are a product, a commodity, just like all man-made concepts. Yes, our mindset was taught to us, and we are a product of that effort. Whatever we have become as a nation, whether lazy, selfishly evil, or Responsible and Loving, there is only one reason we are as we are, and one alone... we were taught to be that way. What we think did not come by accident... We are a product of a reality both whispered out of Love, or shoved down our throats, and yet we have a responsibility to fight back, to sort it out.
Winners write only what they want remembered, and it has little or nothing at all to do with Truth, balanced and long ranging. Some historical depictions are a schema for the power-structure grid to remain in place, without competition, or even to be visible. Seemingly behind a curtain, their influence is the motivation for each and every fire that is lit around us.... and most are little more than distractions, where one hand pushes, and the other pulls under the covers. This lack of Truth, contrived and influential, holds us in check, like a fly on a sticky net.
Social Taboo and forged realism
Few men ever attempt to find the veiled and ubiquitous truths of their lives, so cleverly and well hidden from cradle to grave. Obscured by orchestrated lies, they are processed and filtered by computation to become credible, believable... It is... our so called history, framed as authentic by social taboo and forged realism... and oiled by the fear of ridicule, fear of reprisal, fear of the unknown, and we, in a process that pulls and pushes us as a collective unit, become slaves of voluntary servitude. When the tentacles entwine, indeed, there would be no way out, and it will be a catch-22 loop, where Liberty will be soon displaced by Big Brother, and forgotten. So well indoctrinated, we will polish our collars with pride. We are taught to obey, kill without question, willing to work five months out of the year to pay taxes and have no say (or method of grievance), as to how it is used. Your mind, heart, and future, will belong to a power you can not realize, and so well installed in you physic, you will actually believe it is your true nature... You may even find comfort there, and as you learn to whistle elevator music, your heart will be filled. No creativity can endure in a world without Truth.
Slavery of the Spirit
We will risk death to maintain a lie, and we have not the will or ability to even question why. Some things are just too big, too out of our control, and we must trust that the money missing from our Central Banks, the gold from the twin towers, the trillions missing from the Pentagon, are being put to good use....
We are led to believe that this new science, of slavery of the spirit, the will, indentured voluntary servitude, is for the greater good. What can we do, if not trust? This is the Progressive mind, as taught in our children in university. Go there, sit in, and observe our future being built.
The gifts from God...
Hope seems a constant human companion, and it remains, as it always has since our first glimmer of self-awareness. It is found in our genetics, as men... Our consciousness, the greatest of all God-given gifts, actually culminates in a self-determination called free will, something to balance another new-found gift, a conscious intellect. What an amazing transition for men, and from it, we developed the amazing ability to distinguish between right and wrong. It is our God-given rights of men, and the inspired Civil Liberties our ancestors died to protect... so know this... No man can take our civil liberties, as they were given to us by Almighty God.
"I remember my only question, as I was discouraged to speak at all, and the reply both of my Indian Gurus made, over a span of a year..."What do you think of the West?" I said... and they quickly replied: "It is all bullshit." -Ken LaRive 2008, Mumbai, India.
The confiscation of Liberty, Truth, and our future...
It takes a great effort to study history. No way can any historian deny that historical truth is of primary importance and a barrier hard to break. As it has been written by the power elite, the side who won the war, they get to pick and choose what to record, or what to forget. We can always quickly see those who are at the top of the food chain, our masters. They are the ones we can not talk about. Even the mention of them brings on fear, shame, guilt, and acceptance... This is because those thoughts have been instilled in your mind... Clever? Yes, it is pure genius.
In my library I have acquired not only books and manuscripts I thought truthful, but a section both inherited, or given to me. It was there, under a decade of obscure shadows, that I have rediscovered a three volume set written by the Delphian Society, 1936, called Basic Trends. Indeed, they sat on a bottom shelf without notice in obscure gray leather and minimal gold trim... and has become, in just three days, the very focal point of my quest for truth. I am quite emphatic when I say these three volumes are the crown jeweled description of our humanity, and references "The development of significant factors in modern society from the middle ages to the present day..." I have found an unvarnished, balanced and formidable... Truth.
The Delphian Society
"The Delphian Society was a national organization that promoted the education of women in the United States. This organization was founded around 1910 in Chicago.
The Delphian Society takes its name from the historical Oracle of Delphi of Phocis, Greece. "Here in remote times Apollo was believed to reveal his wishes to men through the medium of a priestess, speaking under the influence of vaporous breath which rose from a yawning fissure. Her utterances were not always coherent and were interpreted to those seeking guidance by Apollo's priests."
In 1913, the Delphian Society wrote, "We know full well today that no priestess upon a tripod can reveal to us the secrets of the future. A thorough understanding of the past must be the safest guide for coming years. No vapor can inspire sudden revelations--the result only of faithful effort and earnest thought. Yet the story of the ancient oracle charms us still and when a name was sought for a national organization, that had for its avowed purposed the promotion of educational interests in a continent, none was deemed more suitable than that which for so many years cast its gracious spell from one sea to another."
The Delphian Society was inspired by influential Harvard President, Charles William Eliot's belief that education serves the purpose of inspiring lifelong learning and those who do not receive it "seem to live in a mental vacuum." However, "Fifteen minutes a day of good reading would have given any one of this multitude a really human life." In response to his call for lifelong learning, the Delphian Society wrote, "To meet this condition, which prevails through the length and breadth of our land, to stimulate a deeper interest, quicken a latent appreciation and facilitate the use of brief periods of freedom for self-improvement, the Delphian Society was organized and the Delphian Course of Reading made possible."
In 1913, the Delphian Society published the Delphian Course of Reading: "A systematic plan of education, embracing the world's progress and development of the liberal arts." This ten volume course covers "history, literature, philosophy, poetry, fiction, drama, art, ethics, music," however, "Mathematics, being in its higher forms essential to few, has been omitted; languages, requiring the aid of a teacher, and such scenes as make laboratories necessary, are not included."
I have purchased this set from EBay for US$111.11, and expected to arrive early next week. I have also purchased another three volume set called Basic Trends, to give to my grandchildren.
In 1928, the Delphian Society published several volumes of books containing an outline of human knowledge for the use of conversation.
