Exploring the Truth
Truth is as liquid as the oceans that surround us.
It was once true that the world was flat, until Columbus discovered his own truth and left us an opportunity to experience his truth. It was once true that man could not fly, until the Wright Brothers showed us their truth and it became ours.
It was once true that the sun revolved around the earth, until Copernicus showed us his truth and it became ours. Truth is just a temporary condition until we discover something else. One truth leads to another.
There will always be wars, which is our truth now until someone shows us that there will always be peace and that it is simply a choice. There will always be illness of some kind, which is our truth now until someone shows us that illness is simply a choice. There will always be inequality of some kind, which is our truth now, until someone shows us that we are all connected and that separation doesn't work.
Our own truth lies within our ability to create it and not be at the mercy of, or acceptance of someone else's truth. The world is the way it is because of our own truth.
If we see wars, destruction, inequality, inequity, starvation, natural disasters and suffering, it is because we belief at some level that it is the way it should be.
Each and every one of us has the power to experience the world anyway that we desire. At some level it is our wish to experience wealth and abundance at the expense of others. If all of us were rich, we could not experience it. If all of us were happy and content, we could not experience that for very long either because the opposite would become unknown to us.
The world is in a constant state of flux between that which is and that which is not. Opposites exist for very practical reasons. One cannot experience one thing without the other. As one begins to realize his/her own truth it leads to another and a paradox or dead end that drives one in another direction.
The physical world is simply a place to experiment with truth. All the symbols in our life are physical creations or manifestations of our own truth. If we are driving a brand new luxury car that costs tens of thousands of dollars, that symbol says that we are rich, in debt, living past our means, egotistical, or a number of other things. The symbol is a truth about how we see ourselves and it can be judged by others, but mostly misinterpreted. The real truth lies between the judgements.
Natural disasters are truths about how we envision the world. They are also opportunities for each individual to experience their own truth. If one likes to read about such things and feel the suffering, this is an opportunity to express that inner truth. If one likes to help those that are suffering, then once again there is an opportunity to express ones truth, by helping with donations of service and abundance.
If one's truth is that of an opportunist that sees self abundance in providing goods or services, there is another opportunity to demonstrate that truth. A lie is an unexplored truth and one cannot deny the possibility of the lie except in the absence of one's own truth. In the exploration of your own truth, you must be able to recognize your lies before you can begin to experience your new truth.
The lies you have accepted about who and what your really are, is your truth until you recognize them as such. The world will always be flat until you accept the fact that it isn't or experience it yourself as being round.
Lies and truth are neither good things nor bad things unless you believe that they are. They are simply opportunities for you express yourself physically and demonstrate your truth. It can be the truth that you are a liar in as much as you are lying about the truth. All life exists between the opposites. Truth cannot exist in the absence of the lie.
When your lie or truth no longer works for you and you are not experiencing what you desire, then it is time to let go. There is a clear message that you have outgrown what you believed once. It doesn't mean that it was not real or inappropriate at the time, but you have moved past it, you have matured or evolved.
Having said this, it is not inappropriate for you to continue to live the lie or truth if it is your desire to continue to experience the ramifications of that thought process. Nothing is naturally right or wrong, good or bad unless you know that it is. These are human concepts that do not work effectively in the world of cause and effect.
To find the way to truth your must pass by the lie.
The "Great Lie," is that you are separated from that which created you. "The Great Lie," is that anything you think or do, affects no others. The "The Great Lie," is that someone or something is creating your life and causing your circumstances. And the GREATEST of the "Great Lies," is that you have no choice and you are powerless.
This is the truth; this is my truth for now, and to thine ownself be true.
