The Blind Leading the Blind is Mind

By Harry Krueger

The pristine consciousness acts as nature’s universal voice.

Tradition and culture – are they a good thing?

The origin of the word tradition is from the French: ‘tradicion’, a belief or custom that has been passed on. From Latin, the word is ‘tradere’ which means the same as the French, but it also has another meaning: to betray, from the word ‘traduce’. Whenever a response to a challenge comes from mind, the memory-senses complex, that response is incomplete and so, a betrayal of the present.

Intelligence is the mysterious expression of all that exists. This natural affinity also exists between consciousness and mind.

In ancient times there were groups of people who responded to life’s challenges from the pristine consciousness, Nature’s conduit between consciousness and Intelligence. These groups did not indulge in the accepted tradition of carrying over what had been repetitiously passed on, but rather responded with pristine clarity – that which is self-evident. They were carrying on the original intent of the relationship, the consciousness-Intelligence bonding. That relationship cannot be discerned by mind. Their fruits are of a different taste. Because they were mis-understood by many, they were called religious and spiritual cultists. They were by natural intent true traditionalists. They marched to the beat of a different drummer.

The origin of the word ‘culture’ is from the Middle English, denoting a cultivated piece of land. From the Latin it means ‘growing, cultivation’. From sixteenth century Middle English arose the terms: cultivation of mind, faculties and manners. As a result of this cultivation we became civilized societies. We entered into various groups with different ideals, beliefs and philosophies. The separation of consciousness from Intelligence (humanity’s original fall) led to our never ending culture wars.

The Function of Mind

The primary function of mind is to record and store what consciousness experiences and then relay (via the pristine senses) to consciousness whenever there is a request. Unfortunately, this function is scarcely operational. What we presently experience is a political operational system where life’s challenges are interceded by mind to empower its delusional fantasies.

From birth we are cultivated by society’s most prestigious and respected institutions. Their purpose is to advance (through indoctrination) the mind’s deceptions. Whatever culture we are raised in, we respond with similar thoughts and emotions. Our empirical imperial leader is mind. We are the clones and drones of all previous generations. We ask questions as if they are self-generated and not realizing that they are from answers given by family, friends and the various learning institutions.

We are told that we are original thinkers and have the ability to be creative. Many are born with gifts but creativity is scarce. What we may sincerely believe to be making individual choices is false. We are simply re-acting verbally and emotionally from our daily exploitations. We believe we are responding with the science of sound reasoning. As we presently function, that does not exist. Mind, as a recording, storing and relay system, cannot logically reason. It does not have conscious energy to support that assumption.

Mind sees and reasons only through the prism of its biased past.

Consciousness is not tangible. Mind as a tangible instrument of the physical organism can be pro-grammed, whereas consciousness cannot. What we have been told about mind, is a myth. The living organism cannot generate a single thought. It has no volition.

the mind leading the blindThoughts are contained in vessels where the senses lie. They act as a receptacle for its stored images. Those images, falsely acting as independent agents, are seducing the consciousness into believing that what it believes is self-generated. The seduction ends when consciousness can let go its imaginary fears and has the courage to see how it has been duped. In its pristine state consciousness is incapable of fear. Fear is only of the mind. Our conscious fears are really those of mind. At all cost, mind must continue to have consciousness believe the hypnotic lie that consciousness is mind. Without that belief there is an altering of the functioning process. Consciousness now becomes first responder to all of life’s challenges.

There are no winners, only losses to our present responding process. Mind’s loss is the deterioration of the memory cells by its relentless pursuit of emotionally charged non-existent situations. Consciousness’s loss is by the acquiescence of being complicit to mind’s abhorrent machinations and not being faithful to its pristine nature. As a result of its false responses, consciousness suffers a state of un-easiness. That un-easiness is not a judgement but rather a state of conscience. Consciousness is the conscience of the living organism. Conscience is an indication that we have veered off-track.

We experience conscience when there are emotions of hate, anger, envy, greed, anxiety, frustration, excitement of all kinds, hope and hopelessness, etc. To observe with pristine clarity all of our daily challenges and neither accept nor reject what is shown, that is, without judgement or justification, then instantaneously there is a realization that those emotions are of the mind.

In the field where fact-based daily utilitarian information is needed by consciousness, mind’s co-operation is indispensable. By original design it never was meant to supplant consciousness’s role. Consciousness’s role is to lead in all of the decision making processes. This is possible only through the pristine observation process. This becomes self-evident by simply having the courage to look. So be courageous. The first step is also the last step.

That courage is my wish for you.

Harry is now 85, and has never looked back.

Through his writing, Harry reveals the glorious reality of who we human Beings truly are, and offers insights to help us to break through the false identification of who we are not.

  1. I don’t think it’s so much that memory and imagination are to blame but our very human inclination to serving a consensus and an agreement on shared definitions and expectations. Breaking away from consensus requires being comfortable holding two or more ideas that seem to contradict each other in mind at the same time, and so eliminating the need for drawing permanent, unchanging truths, or conclusions.

    People do this though for getting along, and to be able to function in a world that doesn’t provide a driver’s manual, and yet can feel threatened by the chaos of all that lies outside the walls we build around ourselves.

    The state of our consciousness is unfortunately the last thing to be considered because we’re in it, until something comes along to shake us up enough to lose the ability to feel comforted by our long-held assumptions. There lies the opportunity to “level up,” but even that is tricky because even when the walls are broken down and we are freed from the primary beliefs established in our youth, it remains tempting to simply replace them with new walls.

    Living boundary-free, 24/7, is too much. We need to make some concessions to the consensus, not only to survive, but also to not get caught in the trap of believing we are the only ones without walls. So, perhaps the skill to learn is that of a construction worker who knows how to demolish and renovate as much as to build.

    Thanks for always inspiring me to question the consensus that is so easy to take for granted.

    • We have forgotten much, even the actual definitions of words, and being in tune with nature. Seems we are now living in a virtual reality, (and maybe we are, see: Tom Campbell My Big T.O.E.). The few in power are dictating a fake reality/paradigm, keeping the masses asleep through mind control, TV, and chemicals. We all need to be more Sovereign as Divine spirits from the immortal Consciousness Field. I have always thought that people were basically good and Anarchy would work. Then there are those who think people are basically bad and need to be regulated with tons of laws. If there’s not some other way to do this, without a global banking cabal, we’re doomed. Thanks for reading and commenting, glad it got the brain juices flowing. Talk Erik lately? AKA God. I miss him since he doesn’t post very much anymore.

      • Yeah, I like how you say, we all need to be more sovereign. Someday, maybe, politics and governments will be obsolete. I think we’d do better if governments worked on a more local level. We do live in interesting times though. I am just glad to feel more of a sense of freedom on the inside. But, still, my heart aches for those who really are caught up in the machine.

        Have not heard from Erik in awhile. Miss him too!
