Why the Truth Will Never Be Totally True
Remember that time that we thought we had it all figured out but then we didn’t?
It was okay though because we thought what we needed to think when thinking it was what served us.
Then, there was that time when we thought we found “good” people that wanted to help others and the world.
Remember when we found out they were not so “good” at all? Remember when we found out they were using us?
I remember when we walked away with grace and dignity. And, it was okay because we believed in who we needed to believe in when believing in them served us.
Remember when we thought love was the only way?
We stripped ourselves of everything that wasn’t tied up in ribbons and bows and beautiful things. We accepted only half of ourselves. We demanded that we be only part of ourselves. But, it was okay because we thought about what we needed to think when thinking it is what served us.
We spent years believing that a magical man would bring us presents while we slept, one night a year. We called it Christmas.
Remember when we found out there was no magical man at all?
But it was okay because we believed in him when believing in him is what served us.
In the end, all was always well.
The birds were still singing and the babies were still cooing. We don’t have to ask ourselves repeatedly if we were ‘wrong’. We do not always have to figure out ‘what we were thinking’. It doesn’t matter.
There is never one all-powerful truth for all of us. There are trillions upon trillions of powerful truths floating around, that are changing all the time. And, they don’t always match the other truths. There is nothing wrong with any of them. They are not good or bad. They are all just doing their part to serve the highest good of whoever they are divinely inspiring, at this moment.
This is the absolute most difficult things for humans to accept.
We demand that there be the truth. We want the truest truth there is. We want the truth so true that it will be true forever, no matter what. We demand that we know the truth. And, once we ‘know’ it, we demand that others agree with it.
We are left with a never-ending struggle and an impossible mission that only drains us of energy we could be using for all the actual possibilities.
One truth is never shared by everyone at the same time. Most truths are not even kept by us forever. That is okay. It is better than okay.
It is perfect.
