The recognition of the nature of the act of definition as a determination of meaning, in fixed or conceptual terms needs to recognize that it is not an act of power over - but an extension of freedom to - according to the active purpose being engaged in.
the mind-in-service can serve to embody felt meanings - but the mind in
judgement over, attempts the conforming or imposing of ideas removed
from the context of serving communication within relationship, to the
role of dictating or controlling the narrative and in that sense - the
form of the relational outcome.
This is simply the loss of
communication and relationship to a conceived sense of power - whether
seemingly winning or leading - or seemingly losing - or indeed using
the form of losing to manipulate the delusion of the winner. For power
against itself weaves an infinite web of deceits.
Attention can be
released from personality obsession arising from identity in judgement,
by willingness and desire to know the truth - that is - to be receptive
to the noticing of what is in fact being communicated or extended as
social manipulations - beneath the mutually agreed definitions, which
operate beliefs and investment in power over - and consequent fear of
loss of power to that which being robbed or denied - is expected to
Jesus extended the invitation of a willingness for knowing
truth, in which who you really are is set free of what a false sense of
power, limited and defined you to be. As long as we agree to define such
power outside our self, we embody an assertion of powerlessness that
then competes to align with or exploit wherever it seems to be.
Jesus would have rather found acceptance in a like willingness for
communication and relationship than denials in which he chose not to
join with - preferring to know the truth than kill it to feed
self-illusion. But that 'passion play' imprints the core conditioning of
a masquerade of power that must deny and indeed crucify, love, in order
to seem to exist in judgement over and apart from Life's Meaning.

way out from self-conflicted identities that cannot afford honesty or
actually grow trust. But only if that noticing abides wordless in the
heart's knowing without being sacrificed to a guilting script.
guilt insinuates itself in our thinking - it poisons all else to serve a
hidden agenda - for it must stay hidden for a part of who it allows you
to be - to mitigate or temporarily escape its pain. It puts down and
casts out in the name of your protection.
Discerning deceits so as
to no longer use them as the lens of our thought, is a primary
responsibility of our freedom to think or define, perceive, accept and
This is most practical information to any who desire
freedom from a deceit that robs us at our very foundation. But first one
has to notice that something is out-of-true and honestly enquire as to
the true - as the context in which to know the difference - and act upon
Whatever the circumstances that bring one to a moment of or
stirring in true noticing - celebrate the noticing without defining it
in association with the conditions - excepting of course - in gratitude.

the dynamic of conflict and the fascination with evil. When it really
comes to it is all the talk of 'freedom' a way to persist in perpetual
war? Or is living unto the freedom of others as yourself, a willingness
to communicate and open genuine relationship? What we give out - is what
we get back.
Forgive yourself your judgements for they know not
what they do. Only a wholeness of being knows its purpose without hidden

not coercive upon anyone. The coercive sense of will arose from mistaken
self-definition that then perpetuates itself by persisting the
assertion of out-of-true as its foundation. A foundation that depends on
being hidden to seem to be a foundation.
How you read the story
is up to you - but you can only meet that which you are willing to be

insistence upon a sacrificial worship of guilt as the guarantee of
No matter how complex a deeply defended lie is - it is no
more true than a fib. What you invest in and want to be true is the
determiner of how readily an error can be corrected - and of course this
is a matter of who you define and accept yourself to be - moment - by
moment - by moment.
But if you recognize that what is - Is beyond
definition - excepting as an extension of the freedom to create - then
there is a basis from which to notice and align self-defining idea to
the true of you.
Otherwise hidden definitions run old conditioning that believes the true of You is unacceptable.
