“Three things cannot be long hidden – the sun, the moon, and the truth.” – Buddha
What is the truth?
What does it mean to you?
The truth has different meanings depending on whose truth we are talking about.
Speak truth, speak your truth and most importantly be honest with yourself and others.
My truth may not be your truth and vice versa.
I had spent many years in search of the truth and after every new higher-truth that I discovered, it would just expand my awareness and I would keep on seeking higher truths.
I felt like I was going down the rabbit hole or dealing with one of those Russian Dolls where you open it and there is a smaller one inside of it.
An example of a higher-truth that I had learned and experienced would be from going to believing that I am a separate from everything else to a higher-truth that we are all connected on an energetic level.
The definition of truth according to Dictionary.com is a verified or indisputable fact, proposition, principle, or the like: mathematical truths.
What I have learned is that all of us are at our own level of truth and that is fine by me and I totally accept it.
There was a time when I was learning about higher truths and I wanted to share them with others.
This wasn’t always welcome and I mainly reserve my higher-truths for my blog. If anyone else resonates with what I am saying than they will be attracted to my blog.
I can tell my truth to someone who is not ready to hear it and it would never get through to them.
Same goes for someone trying to tell me their truth.
My filters would block it out unless I asked them for their truth or they had some serious rapport with me. This seldom happens though.
Every blog that I read is someone expressing their truth, what they believe to be true according to where they are in their life.
Who am I to tell them they are wrong – I wouldn’t .
Even if I read something that I disagree with or that I believe I know a better way, it is best that I allow them their own truth.
Sure, I could offer another way or a higher-truth in the comments, but I would never tell another blogger that they are wrong in their beliefs.
The need to be right
Boy, I could write several posts on this topic.
Have you ever made a decision that went against the norm and someone close to you says that you are wrong?
How could they know?
They don’t know and nobody knows what is best for you but you.
Now there are people such as therapists, coaches, consultants and intuitive’s that can help you get to your highest truth, but it is your job to eventually learn how to do it yourself.
If not, you can choose to keep letting others row your boat at a cost to you.
Row your own boat
Remember the nursery rhyme Row Row Row Your Boat?
Gently down the stream, merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream.
Never in this song does it mention that anyone else get’s to row your boat, that’s your job so don’t ask anyone else to row your boat, and don’t row others either.
I believe the nursery rhyme would be a good analogy about why there is so much turmoil in this world.
We are all busy trying to row someone else boat.
“Oh, this guy in front of me is driving too slow, I think I’ll get right up behind him and push him along.”
“You’re raising your kids the wrong way, I better let you know that you’re doing it wrong.”
“What you said offended me, I’m gonna get a law passed to prevent that.”
The need to control other people goes on and on.
Have we all forgotten that we are not responsible for the world.
That’s God’s/Source’s/ The Universe’s job.
We are all architects contributing to the greater picture yet we are not responsible for creating or rowing someone else boat.
Sure we can help if asked or if someone is seriously struggling but if someone is rowing their boat gently down the stream without any hiccups than stay out of their boat.
Living life by your own terms
This was a hard one for me to overcome because I had learned to be a people-pleaser at a young age.
I still like to make people happy and serve, but I am no servant. I do what I want, when I want and how I want without having to explain myself to others.
I live my life according to my beliefs, wants and desires.
My life feels so much better when I live from this perspective. (I am talking in personal life terms here and not in regards to jobs, business and legal matters.)
I want to share this message from Author Neale Donald Walsch: The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth.
Niels Bohr said that, and he was right.
In fact, there have been few statements in the history of statement- making that were more accurate than that one. So be aware and stay awake! The Law of Opposites sometimes leads you to a Divine Dichotomy.
Two opposing truths can exist simultaneously in the same space. Do not assume that That Which Opposes You is That Which Is Not Good For You. It may be just the reverse.
What Neale is saying here is that you can live life according to your truth and I can live life according to my truth without having to worry that one truth would be better than the other, because it is not.
Are you letting others in your boat without your permission? Or are you a kick-ass and take names no nonsense kind of a person living life according to your highest truth?
