A great question!
This is part of why I think Q’uo often starts their communication with essentially wanting people to be discerning. I don’t think even the confederation wants people to blindly trust what they’re saying.
Better to trust your past experiences. But wait! How can we prove that the past exists? Only the present can truly be perceived, what if all our memories are programed in such a way to make us believe we experienced certain things? …
Yes these kind of explorations are fantastic, and perhaps even important to do on a personal level, to better understand one’s experience.
And so on. At some point a leap of faith must be made lest you slide into nihilism.
Perhaps, there could be a dark period, but for me, revaluating the foundation of my beliefs, being open to changing my perspective on everything, being willing to lower my confidence in all beliefs, has led me to greater freedom, and allowed me to shift from atheism to learning about the law of one.
I find I have greater faith now that I’ve recognized how illusory everything is.
Automatically rejecting everything you see on TV requires as much of a leap as automatically believing everything you see on TV.
Maybe. The default position is that people trust that the TV is channeling truth to them. Whereas I don’t reject everything in a very strong way.
I’m closer to indifference, or agnosticism. If I hear an event it’s like: “that’s interesting”, but I have no way to know how true it is.
When I’ve studied the source of some events and news, I’ve found that there was deliberate misinformation, deliberate deception. Therefore my trust is shattered in them, and they have yet to rebuild or earn their trust.
It’s likely similar to why don’t LLResearch channel STS entities? In the same way, I view much of this world’s information as being closer to STS information, and therefore unreliable. They’ve muddied the water with so much distortion, that it seems more reasonable to not believe them.
There is so much unknown in my 3rd density perception, I feel like we’ve been cut off from a lot of true knowledge of our transient experience.
Therefore, I suppose this is why confederation focuses on non-transient information.
I personally believe that the Earth is a globe because I trust what I’ve learned: that Eratothsenes measured the circumference of the Earth back in the 2nd century BC using an experimental method that can be easily replicated and has produced the same results over and over.
That’s fine, I don’t want to disrupt your beliefs in stories like these. Unless you’re interested and curious about exploring them.
I don’t see the motivation for all of them to lie about it.
If one is interested in crafting an illusion, would lies help to achieve that?
That said, I try not to cling to tightly to any belief, and I can’t say with any certainty that these things are true.
That’s wonderful, I think that’s a great approach!
If they are false, does it really make much difference in how I experience reality?
Maybe it depends on the extent to which you value truth?
Here’s an example of why believing false things might make a difference:
Let’s say a person creates charity business and they claim that they give all their money to help homeless people, but in reality the person is keeping all the money for themself! Now, there is a man who is regularly donating money to this charity, he believe’s he’s being of service to homeless people, but really his actions are not helping them at all! His false belief, his failure to recognize the scam, has led him to perform a service that is not effective.
