If you now go to http://www.unite-us.com and go directly to the articles you can read a lot more about this. The time of revelation is here, the apocalypse which doesn't mean anything other than the disclosure of knowledge which was so called hidden. But was it really? You can say no thanks, I'm no religious person, but what's religion in your eyes? Just look at the way how the Hole Books are being read, we are so aimed to the outside world that we forget the inside and to see the inside you need, yet again, develop the right eyes to see it. You can see it as invisible ink, in order to see that invisible ink you have to develop the right eyes.

Plato's cave


look at this drawing! The people are chained and unable to turn their heads. All they can see is the wall of the cave.
Behind them burns a fire and between the fire and them there is a stage along which actors can walk(act).And they cast shadows on the wall of the cave, the people are unable to see these actors, the real objects that pass behind them.

What the people see and hear are shadows and echoes cast by objects they do not see. Such people see the film on the cave wall and take it for reality.

They would think the things they see on the wall(the shadows)are real and they know nothing of the real causes of the shadows. Lets assume a globe was moved behind them on the stage and it cast a shadow on the wall and they say I see a disc what is he talking about? He thinks he is talking about a disc but really he is talking about a shadow, and if they say disc then even the word disc would be used incorrectly because they would give names to a shadow on the wall instead of naming the real thing that casts a shadow on the wall

When they say, That is a disc, they think that the word disc refers to the very thing he is looking at, but they would be wrong, they would be wrong and if they would be able to turn around then they could see the disc is only a shadow of a globe.

Once they would be able to turn round they would realise their mistake, they need to reach this reflective understanding(for more then one reason)but aside from this the ability to think and speak comes from two things ,1) by naming what you see(on the wall) and 2) the meaning you connect to it which means not knowing the truth makes seeking for truth.
And when knowing is reached thinking stops. while now they are like tree's that seek water and build roots and make connections of shadows.

They may learn what a disc is by their experience with shadows of a disc but they would be mistaken if they thought that the word disc refers to something that any of them has ever seen. Even a disc is something else then a shadow likewise you may acquire concepts by your perceptual experience of physical objects, but wrong if they thought that what they perceive and seek to understand is anywhere near to what they think they grasp.

But now another level, see if you can recognize this in the cave, the energy(fire/light) shines/flows through your memories(actors) so the light you project on things or situations is the light of your personal ideas which reflects back from the object or situation, feeding the impurity with his own believe that is still stored. They cast their own shadows too, and thought are like the shadows of man's personality seeking and judging . emotions and thoughts are like the tools of those personal ideas to help them seek of self for self and so you remain a prisoner in your own cave.

So first one needs to became master over his emotions then trace them back to their origin and see the shadows they cast on your life.

De Broek.
