What is Truth?
My father, not much in my life after the age of two, did imprint upon my heart one thing that has stayed with me…
He said, “You know the truth.”I’ve mulled this over much through the years, defining and redefining my relationship with Truth.
One thing I know for sure, is that the Truth is that which is TRUE always. We’re birth-less, deathless, formless, true consciousness…all else that arises is illusion, and therefore, False.
So, if you’re on a quest for the “Truth out there” you many not ever find it, but you can find facts and information about what people have done. (The truth is found within.)
There’s a difference between “Conspiracy Theories” and facts. Some so called, “Conspiracy Theories” are NOT strange theories believed by traumatized or weak individuals.
Please, again, remember that Conspiracy Theory was a term coined by the CIA and used to deter people to ask questions about the murder of JFK.
It’s a so called “Conspiracy Theory” if you’re watching and learning about how the Main Stream Media controls you and manages that narrative.
Is that theory? Or is it a fact? Can you see it with your own eyes and then recognize it as true? Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water as they say…don’t shy away from looking or listening simply because people will say you’re “crazy, weak, dumb, traumatized,” etc.
It’s your RIGHT to question. And at this point, I think it’s really important to understand that ALL major news companies…CNN, MSCNBC, ABC, local news, they’re all owned by a few people…
And they TOTALLY control what you’re allowed to see. Please don’t judge people who are just trying to be informed, and aware and open-minded.
If you’ve not watched Out of Shadows, it’s time. Just look for yourself. It’s not a conspiracy that the news is owned, managed, operated by wealthy elite with an agenda.
You can go on with your meditating, Netflix and Abraham Hicks, and focusing on better feeling thoughts…but let’s not put down other humans in the process. This doesn’t have to be about whether I’m weak, or traumatized or dumb because of what I think or see or know to be true and you’re better and smarter and more reasonable…
Please, let’s not play into the hands of black and white thinking, or judgment, or blame…
So many comments like:
“Finally, a reasonable person.”
“Finally, someone who can use critical thinking.”
No, likely just more that it feels so good to feel right. It feels good to think other think like us. So, it may be that my TRUTH is different than your TRUTH. We don’t have to be the same to be and share LOVE.
In your comments and your sharing, I invite you to be radically you, powerfully open, to share your words that are on your heart, and I invite you to consider that you don’t have to do it in a way that puts others down.
I refer here in large part to the Shame research of Brene Brown. It’s so vital that we don’t shame one another in our process of finding our own Truth. From Brene Brown:
“We’ve sorted ourselves into factions based on our politics and ideology. We’ve turned away from one another and toward blame and rage. We’re lonely and untethered. And scared. Any answer to the question “How did we get here?” is certain to be complex. But If I had to identify one core variable that magnifies our compulsion to sort ourselves into factions while at the same time cutting ourselves off from real connection with other people, my answer would be fear. Fear of vulnerability. Fear of getting hurt. Fear of the pain of disconnection. Fear of criticism and failure. Fear of conflict. Fear of not measuring up. When we ignore fear and deny vulnerability, fear grows and metastasizes. We move away from a belief in common humanity and unifying change and move into blame and shame. We will do anything that gives us a sense of more certainty and we will give our power to anyone who can promise easy answers and give us an enemy to blame.”
“Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness.” ~Brene Brown
“Truth has power. And if we all gravitate toward similar ideas, maybe we do so because those ideas are true … written deep within us. And when we hear the truth, even if we don’t understand it, we feel that truth resonate within us … vibrating with our unconscious wisdom. Perhaps the truth is not learned by us, but rather, the truth is re-called … re-membered … re-cognized … as that which is already inside us.” ~Dan Brown
