Blind allegiance

Blind allegiance occurs when we fail to realize or acknowledge the truth and therefore choose to follow an ideal reality rather than reality itself.

We humans have an amazing ability to shape and see things from a perspective that supports our desires not necessarily the facts.

It is here where the line between opinion and the obvious begins to blur.

Without doubt, an informed mind makes the best decision.

Prescription without diagnosis is considered malpractice. Real danger occurs when we rely too much on hunch or speculation.

Information is important. The right information is essential.

Information isn’t the same as revelation. Truth reveals reality. The trouble with information is how much of it you have. Do you have all the information? Are you missing information? Is what you have misinformation?

We can believe we know that we know that we know until, we are enlightened on what we don’t know.

Sometimes we may never know all the information. At other times, only time will tell.

I love the insight that can be gleaned from the ancient book of Proverbs; “The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.”

Or how about this one; “The one who gives an answer before he listens — this is foolishness and disgrace for him.”

Be careful what you listen to. Garbage in. Garbage out. Trick me once, shame on you. Trick me twice, shame on me.

Let’s be mindful of the games that are often played to influence our thinking and ultimately, our lives. This reality is often referred to as propaganda, gaslighting or manipulation.

If you find yourself needing a good dose of truth and in need of a time-tested source for reality, put the book of Proverbs on your reading list. Doing so will help center your thoughts on perspectives that you consider.

The good news is that when you know the truth, it sets you free, free from worry, doubt, anxiousness and perhaps most of all, confusion and chaos.

Be aware of the propensity to drift into blind allegiance. Stay enlightened. Check your sources and trust the One who brings all things into the light of reality.
