We hear so much about the truth. What it is. what it can do. “The truth will set you free”, is a common phrase or, “the truth is out there”, but where? And how does anyone know if they found the truth anyway? And if they do, what will they do with it? Perhaps join a group to help confirm if they are correct? And then get others to convert to their ideas? Or kill in the name of it? And what does freedom exactly mean? That’s another term left for the individual to decide for themselves. After all where one persons freedom begins, another persons freedom ends.
What if you discovered the truth, but then found it was wrong? Was it the truth? Or are you being tested to see where you are at with your own inner knowing? That ‘god’ could look you in the eyes and say you are wrong, but you have such a strong inner knowing that you say, “no god, you are wrong. This is my truth...”
That’s a bold idea to those whose beliefs only know god to be the One, and the almighty creator. Brave move or not, everyone is correct. Some are strong with this understanding, and others need confirmation. Group mentality is a way for humanity to confirm what the truth is for them. People work well in numbers, and they like to have confirmation. It’s also a nice way to have bake sales, pizza parties, and an occasional date night. They have an affinity towards a common understanding of life and what the truth means to them. They can live together accordingly in peace for the most part. It’s only when introducing another truth is when disagreements, arguing, and misunderstandings happen. New ideas and understandings make people feel vulnerable and angry. They also find themselves acting in ways that are counteractive to their own spirituality and beliefs. For instance, killing others to prove that killing is wrong. We run into paradox.
So, in reality there is not one truth, but many, it’s endless.
This is also why humanity is fighting for world peace. Do you notice the word ‘fighting’ here? Endless wars occur for this truth agreement. The only thing coming to an agreement on is disagreement, and allowing the world to be chaotically diverse. Nothing changes, but the tiring effort to try making it otherwise. What if humanity is collectively expecting a perfectly peaceful world? An objective reality based on a concept that everyone will be at peace with each other some day? This sounds like a perfect recipe for a let down, and an unreasonable expectation to have on anyone. No wonder world peace hasn’t happened yet. Why so much pressure for perfection? There is nothing wrong with the world, and the search for truth is an inside job.
When the individual begins to work outside the ‘All That Is’, with a complete understanding of the multidimensionality of creation, they are truly living universal, or in sync with ‘unity’ consciousness. Some call it a ‘Christ consciousness’ as well. Where it’s not meant as a man named Jesus Christ, but a state of being. A state of allowing the self and then in turn doing so for others. Once the truth is felt in every fiber of ones being it’s a permanent happening, like how a tattoo goes deep through the layers of the epidermis. It’s not something that you ever return from or forget about. Every action you take from that point on is filtered through your inner knowing. Some call it a ‘soul voice’. But, that brings in an idea of soul and to some that is a belief not in resonance with their inner truth. It doesn’t matter, everyone has their experience with this happening.
There is a universal truth, but one must find it within their own confine. This is what was said countless times by so many wise individuals throughout the ages, and still stands the test of time felt inside each and every one of us.
