Brandishing Truth In The Face Of Lies


by Zen Gardner

A lot of people are at wit’s end in the face of this onslaught of anti-Truth and such an obvious, crushing despotic takeover. I sympathize with this feeling, it often gnaws at me as well. Not only the deep indignation against the ugly reality we’re up against, but how to chart the course of your life and influence those you love in light of all this.

Many are wondering what is my role here? What else can I do? How do I keep a grounded life and perspective while dealing with this in-your-face horrific imposed reality whirling about us? How can I best help others during this time and contribute to the awakening and empowerment of true humanity?

One thing for sure: Keeping on business as usual is about the dumbest mistake anyone could possibly make. Unless of course your role model is the ostrich or you’re so drugged up on the matrix and its propaganda, chemicals and accessories it really doesn’t matter to you. If that’s you, by the way, you are part of the problem, not just some neutral in the game of life.

You are working for them.


Identify Your Enemy

Our number one foe is fear. And fear takes on many forms, especially if it’s not identified and approached consciously. Many I know including those closest to me have this underlying anxiety bothering them that they can’t quite identify. That’s not necessarily fear, but it can bubble up into unconscious expressions of fear and fog our perception and lead to unwise decisions. Across the globe, financial instability and food and safety insecurity is growing, all while the world’s populations are being bombarded with horrific negative news and media propaganda.

All carefully keeping the entire world on edge. On purpose.

Right now is a very important time in all of our lives as we prepare for this next phase that looms on the immediate horizon. If we’re not prepared, spiritually and physically, well, maybe there’s a reason for this anxiety. Some of those feelings are meant to tell us to wake up and take action, search out possibilities, and find out what’s really bothering us.

And find out why this is happening.

Do you know what’s really going on in the world? Have you caught on yet that the human race is being farmed by megalomaniacal manipulators who don’t give a rat’s ass about humanity’s welfare or condition in life, except to keep enough of us alive and productive to keep them fed and their plans for total control moving along?

You might want to start there. Could make a difference in how you perceive the world around you and help you make more conscious decisions if that’s the case.

That’s why I do what I do. Full on Truth is our most powerful weapon. That and loving, conscious living, while identifying the perceived reality around us for what it really is and saying so.

On the Practical Side

If you at least see the system breaking down and about to get much worse, do you have supplies? Do you have community, and alternate plans in case things go sideways where you are and you have to move?  If it all goes to hell do you really wanna be where you are, or would you rather be somewhere else?

Because if the next big event or events are what they are shaping up to be, whatever they are, the aftermath is going to be really, really nasty. You’re lucky if there’s 2 days of food in your local food supply unless you live in the country where you’re growing your own food or others are. If the power goes or water lines stop, what will you do?

These are fundamentals your subconscious is most likely very aware of but your matrix brainwashed mind is keeping suppressed or minimizing day after day.

Just do the right thing. And listen to the right voice.


Be Conscious, or Be Controlled

Conscious awareness may seem to be fairly subjective, but when you get to the essence of it we all meet in the same place. The most important task for anyone is developing an energetic spirituality. No, not religion, those and belief systems are mega hijacks and part of the cleverly designed matrix. We’re talking true spiritual freedom and empowerment. Many come through years of religious or philosophical paradigms to arrive at this conscious awareness, experiencing degrees of it over their lives as it worked its way out, almost like a splinter works its way to the surface of your skin.

Others are launched into it through meditation or prayer, study, NDEs, psychedelics, severe trauma in some form, all kinds of ways. It doesn’t mean we “get it” all right away, it just means we become intensely aware of “the other side” and that this 3D image is just a veil, an illusion, while an absolutely fabulous multi-dimensional greater reality awaits our investigation.

And so the adventure begins. Or should.

Truth, or Compromise

Herein lies the key. Once you’ve become experientially aware of this greater reality, what do you do with it? Do you let it change your life, or is it too much work, it’s too up hill and against the tide, too unpopular, or it requires you to give up too much?

The move into a conscious-driven life happens only as long as you stay hungry. You can’t get complacent. Consciousness implies action. It evokes empathy and compassion. And compassion does something about what it knows and sees.

Sympathy does squat.

Therein is the litmus test. That’s why I can’t stomach cowards and compromise. Believe me, the matrix and all its propaganda is all too ready to supply you with more excuses than you can conceive of. Wanna go to a real buffet? Head to Excuse City, it’s panacea paradise.

Just Keep On

If you keep going you’ll get it. The key is to not sit still in some circumscribed perspective with set definitions of anything. We have to keep growing into what we truly are. The battleground of life is covered with innate inertia, like thick, sticky molasses. Unless you have your anti-attachment consciousness generated spirit suit on, you’re one stuck mofo.

Hence the warfare to get free. First personally, developing your anti-bodies, getting super wipers on your goggles and a flame throwing crap retardant. Then once you find your footing and realize what you’re up against, you start to march. It sucks realizing what a crap place you’re in but march you must. That’s the right thing to do.

It’s also time to alert others. If you see the battlefield you’re in you need to set the others on fire with the Truth, and get the place cleaned the hell up.

Such is the existential warrior’s viewpoint.

burning heart

Our Only Hope

Our only hope is to burn so hot, so white hot, that nothing can touch us. Everything false is dissolved by our very presence. Darkness scatters at our glance of Truth. To be so steadfast in righteous knowledge and indignation and such champions of Love and Truth that the enemies of Truth cower and flee.

We can do this. We already are in so many ways.

It’s time to quit smouldering.

Burst into flames, dammit. Defy this onslaught.

They or anyone can do nothing against the Truth, but for the Truth.

Truth reigns supreme, despite the usurpers.

Burn, baby, burn.

Love, Zen

  1. Thee best Post i have read this Year , Pact with Truth. I just had a 5hr talk with my two daughters about this mind set and How enlightenment is a Destructive process.Its been a long road trying to explaining the dangers of the Illusion and the systematic control to keep you in a dream. But Its my truth and to no talk about it would be my self dreaming.Zen I love that you have no agenda other then understanding out selves in a true way great work My friend.

    • Tx Peek…this was partially inspired by 2 long talks I had with one of my daughters as well. Trying to get our heads around this insanity is a way of life I guess. It really comes out when your kids come to you with questions or situations arise and you try to formulate this dynamic the best you can to help them grasp the big picture. Problem is it always ends up with some pretty drastic conclusions that if you believe you have to take action about…things we take for granted but which so many can’t incorporate into their daily lives. It just can’t fully compute because of what it would mean practically. The beauty of it all is the answer being in conscious awareness and finding that place of peace and the ultimate point of perspective. It sorts out just fine from there, and thankfully she’s got that awareness. The practical stuff is what’s jerking the rug out now, finances, cost of living, which makes any unforeseen problem a huge one. It’s getting very serious out there. The squeeze is on.
      Just want to see as many as possible know they have their own lifeboat right inside of them. 😉

      • Good post Zen and from the heart. Same here in regards to long talks with one of my sons. ” I stay hungry…can’t get enough” he states.
        I find myself short of tools to answer all the questions being asked of me.

  2. I like the sentiment, but I notice that this inner fire, which I have cultivated, is uncontrollable at times. My “righteous indignation” comes out in a massive burst toward what I perceive as abuse or inhumanity. But, I have to ask; who dies and made me boss? What do I know, really?
    There are always two sides, and although I know that I mean well, my manner of expression in these circumstances can rightly be construed as violence. Who am I to force someone to confront something I feel they have done wrong, a) because I said so, and b) at a time of my choosing?
    In other words, I would be careful what I wish for in this situation. The inner fire is powerful, but power is a heady thing.

    • Much agreed Bruce. Being a redhead, I already have a hair trigger that sometimes causes embarrassment to my wife and myself. I always feel badly afterwards for potentially hurting someone even if it was for their own good. It is a very fine line.

    • Oh, they communicate alright. It’s one big cabal. The info we get is drivel disinfo, very carefully presented to a numbed down world. You can always count on the matrix of illusion to lie…even when they tell the truth.

  3. God bless you Zen and thank you! I know it was not the purpose of this article, but it made me cry nonetheless. Reading your words expressing the same thoughts and feelings that I anguish over every single day, is like fresh water to my mind and soul, and gives me a second wind. Thank you for using your gift of writing to valiantly shed light on the truth and encourage others to do the same!

    • Tx Hen, very sweet of you to express that. Appreciated, esp to know people like you are out there and that we’re all in this together. Love, Zen

  4. There appears to be a synchronically at hand that is delicious and reassuring in its beauty. We have discussions here at home and zing, next day you or some other Internet souls are talking about the same subject. Perhaps it is the flow of love and consciousness in a similar stream of truth that is implied or maybe it is the Matrix programing. Don’t care, just know that we who choose to dance in the light are bouncing to the beat of same drum.

  5. Thank you Zen. These sort of posts keep me grounded. Some times I just want to throw in the towel and say to hell with it all, but I can’t, I won’t because I KNOW there is a LIGH AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL and it’s calling out to ALL OF US to help lead those to it. Hugs e/

  6. Zen enjoy these words of love and Truth from Gandhi :-)

    Zen great post! Here is some words of Truth and Love from Gandhi <3 :-)

    "I would say with those who say God is Love, God is Love. But deep down in me I used to say that though God may be Love, God is Truth, above all. If it is possible for the human tongue to give the fullest description of God, I have come to the conclusion that, for myself, God is Truth.?But two years ago I went a step further and said that Truth is God. You will see the fine distinction between the two statements, viz., that God is Truth and Truth is God. And I came to the conclusion after a continuous and relentless search after Truth, which began nearly fifty years ago.?I then found that the nearest approach to Truth was through love. But I also found that love has many meanings in the English language at least and that human love in the sense of passion could become a degrading thing also. I found too that love in the sense of ahimsa had only a limited number of votaries in the world. But I never found a double meaning in connection with truth and not even atheist had demurred to the necessity or power of truth.?But, in their passion for discovering truth, the atheists have not hesitated to deny the very existence of God–from their own point of view, rightly. And it was because of this reasoning that I saw that, rather than say that God is Truth, I should say that Truth is God.?God is Truth, but God is many other things also. That is why I say Truth is God…. Only remember that Truth is not one of the many qualities that we name. It is the living embodiments of God, it is the only Life, and I identify Truth with the fullest life, and that is how it becomes a concrete thing, for God is His whole creation, the whole Existence, and service of all that exists-Truth-is service of God.?"

  7. Yep! Easy to say and even do when you are a nameless, faceless person writing to stir people up to action. I guess we all need to start blogs. They seem pretty popular these days.
    Blog on! –but wouldn’t it be more effective as “March on,” you being at the forefront flag in hand?

  8. Zen, thanks for your post. Truth is a constant. Even though it is hidden. I see what is happening, and what bothers me the most is the shroud of deception so easily accepted by 99% of the people I know. I want to be a light in the darkness, but too often, the truth is met with hostility. Oh well, Zen, buddy. I am preparing now to take care of my family.

  9. A lot of this sounds good–sounds like Truth, but if a person is being honest and humble (meaning they admit they are not God), then the question remains; how do we really know what the Truth is and how to apply it/walk in it? Let’s put it this way: Do you not think Islamic Jihadists really believe they’re walking in the Truth? Some of them are willing to die for what they believe is Truth.
