Hostage To Fear – Only The Truth Can Free Us


falseBoth collectively and individually we are all a hostage of fear and only the light of the truth can free us from this self-imposed powerless and suffocating illusionary prison of self-doubt and unworthiness. Fortunately we have courageous truth tellers in our life continually reminding us of what the light of the truth can reveal:

As Chris Badenhorst correctly wrote in the Star on April, 2014 of the important role of truth tellers in a letter entitled Fear Has Once Again Taken Us Hostage ~

“Ordinary people did not simply one day wake up and proclaim their place in history ~ to the contrary, the one common demeanor would be that these ordinary people all answered to an inner call and took up a long, troublesome and painful journey in the name of courage.”

I have always felt that Fear is quite often False Exaggerations or Evidence Appearing Real and keeps us from truly experiencing not only our self but also how we can be held a hostage to fear. Fear is very capable of overriding love, joy and clarity as I recently shared in The Final Option

In order to conquer fear, we must experience it and go through it and see it for what it really is ~ the ego’s need to maintain control and protect us from the unknown which is, in realty, being in the moment and claiming our part in a loving plan in action. Part of the process of being a truth teller, like Edward Snowden and Glenn Greenwald, is fearlessly revealing the light of the truth ~ which most certainly would eventually include the Assassination of JFK and the ongoing 9/11 Cover up.

FEAR / How many of us are controlled by it?


In that regard, Glenn Greenwald’s recent excerpt in Tom Dispatch from his book No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Security State is a classic example of  how nothing can keep the truth from eventually emerging from the harsh cold prison of Fear.

How I Met Edward Snowden.

Excerpt: Once the programs were all in place, I received a file containing roughly twenty-five documents: “Just a very small taste: the tip of the tip of the iceberg,” he tantalizingly explained.

I unzipped the file, saw the list of documents, and randomly clicked on one of them. At the top of the page in red letters, a code appeared: “TOP SECRET//COMINT/NO FORN/.”

This meant the document had been legally designated top secret, pertained to communications intelligence (COMINT), and was not for distribution to foreign nationals, including international organizations or coalition partners (NO FORN). There it was with incontrovertible clarity: a highly confidential communication from the NSA, one of the most secretive agencies in the world’s most powerful government. Nothing of this significance had ever been leaked from the NSA, not in all the six-decade history of the agency. I now had a couple dozen such items in my possession. And the person I had spent hours chatting with over the last two days had many, many more to give me.

Shortly before landing, I read one final file. Although it was entitled README_FIRST,” I saw it for the first time only at the very end of the flight. This message was an explanation from the source for why he had chosen to do what he did and what he expected to happen as a result ~  and it included one fact that the others did not: the source’s name.

I understand that I will be made to suffer for my actions, and that the return of this information to the public marks my end. I will be satisfied if the federation of secret law, unequal pardon, and irresistible executive powers that rule the world that I love are revealed for even an instant. If you seek to help, join the open source community and fight to keep the spirit of the press alive and the internet free. I have been to the darkest corners of government, and what they fear is light. Edward Snowden “

All I can say right now is the U.S. government is not going to be able to cover this up by jailing or murdering me. Truth is coming, and it cannot be stopped Edward Snowden Read more

Truth is coming and it cannot be stopped ~ but the ultimate truth is love.
