How can the truth change how we see the world?

  1. Truth can change the world if human beings accept to don’t ignore it or behaving as it doesn’t exist.

Selfishness is what impedes to human beings to see other than their own individual reality.

For whoever seeks the truth, he will find it. As soon as he learns it, he can decide what to do about it.

He can ignore what he knows, and he can do something about it.

In the world of lies rare are those who will accept the truth, since the truth isn’t pleasant for someone who lived for a long time amongst lies.

Anyone will at some point in their life, encounter God, which is truth.

Deciding to accept the truth, even if it’s very scary, is better than to refuse it and become ill.

Anyone can see the truth about humankind if he wants, and the way in which he will act by considering the truth, will show who he is.

When we will learn to practice strong and severe mental discipline, we will act rightly.

Discipline isn’t doing intense physical work, it’s a need to face our soul state.

People who work a lot, even when it’s unnecessary, are trying to escape from an internal soul conflict.

True mental discipline is being isolated for long times as a method to face our internal soul states.

If we can’t resist, we’re not ready to accept the truth.

Understanding ourselves is the first step to learn how to recognize the truth around us.

As soon as we understand our soul, truths around us will be evident.

In our soul, we’ve accumulated thoughts, feelings and behaviors that aren’t ours, and all of them are suppressing the expression of each unique nature of a human being.

When exploring ourselves we will face thoughts, feelings and behaviors which aren’t ours. The task is to recognize them as not the true natural behavior of our soul, since any external inculcated content which isn’t antient to our natural composition of the soul, will potentially cause mental illness, or soul pathogens.

By knowing ourselves for who we are, we’ll find the truth.

Who lives in lies will see lies, who lives in the truth, will see the truth.

2. If truth could fix how we see the world…then why don’t more people seek the truth? A link between wanting to know the truth and the actually truth can have such a wide gap that sometimes that gap cannot be overcome.

Once any person decides to look for the truth sometimes that road to discovery get fuzzy and a re-focus needs to be done…it is like clearing the screen of your computer…a purge of all information. Then with clear slate. Restart the search and if this purge needs to be done on a regular basis then that is just part of the process.

There are basic truths…like the sun will come up tomorrow morning…but at some time…it just may not, but by that time we will not be here. But where will we have gone? Can’t answer that one of course…though I do have an idea.

Truth for me might not be a truth for you and this is the crux of the problem with “truth”…it can be only subjective and not objective. Objective truth holds the same for you or for me, as well as others. But truth is a moving goal post…it can shift with our knowledge…it can shift with our own beliefs…and certainly shift with pressures put on us by others.

So what my truth is an individual endeavor and I do not subject others by saying “This is the only truth.” I might love cake and you might love cookies…each of us will formulate our own truths but it when you wish to push your truth upon me that I will indeed dig my heels in and resist. As you would do for me if I pushed my truth(s) upon you.

Yet there are many who stick to the truth that ‘one size fit all”, and it does not. Truth is so individual and why for me is so apparent…we are all looking through the filters of our own lives…and the cookies you enjoy I might never have tasted. So until I have had one of your cookies…I will never know your truth about those great cookies.

Experience is a teacher and with either good or bad experiences…truth will get painted any color you wish to use. Bad. May have a certain meaning for you, while that same ‘bad’ might not for me. Truth has a long uphill battle to make itself known to many and even then, there will be those who will never see what is in plain sight.

Truth is something that needs to be sorted out…one branch at a time…as a tree sends its branches out year after year. It might seem random and each branch is different, some are higher on the tree and some are on the lower parts…but the roots are the common source, the foundation.

That common source “that foundation” is something that has kept me searching for a long time…as in “what is our common source”? We are all just branches living and expanding outward but there must be a link…a common ground between all of us…and that search could be a truth that needs to be found…for me and for everyone else.

We might think our branch is our whole world but it might just not be and if a truth could arrive as to how our lives…all our lives are connected, then that single truth just might bring together a world divided upon itself.

Truth once known cannot be unknown and once a truth is out there for all to see, then changes can and do happen. Make no mistake here, there are those who cannot see the truth before their very own eyes and will fight to maintain their dancing shadows upon the walls of their own caves.

Once people see a bigger picture, the world will change, there will be no options to still see thru shaded eyes and deaf ears. To be aware for self is to open the door to the truths that do exist and to decide whether that trust sits well within.

Make no mistake, what people believe to be a ‘truth’ has been seen in history as false. Disproven but not without sacrifice. Truth finding takes guts and a willingness to see beyond our limited shadows dancing upon the wall of our closed cave…created by the fires of ignorance.

Search for the truth means to ask questions about our belief systems, our birth culture, and of course our own biases. Take a long good look and you will find like I did, that my view was indeed a bit twisted and with the realization that I was creating those shadows in my narrow closed cave…let the light in and dispelled those dancing shadows of my own creation.

It takes strength and a strong will to overcome the world at large but once that large world is honed down…something simple arrives. And a peace can reside where it needs too.

3. Your worldview is determined by the channel you employ to view the realities of life – one is through your mind/five physical senses and the other through your soul/spirit.

One classic example of how the discovery of a truth changes our worldview is the intelligent understanding of the working of the Law of Opposites/Duality.

The Law postulates that the pair of opposites always follow each other: success by failure, joy by sorrow, love by hate, expectation by disappointment; right by wrong, light by darkness, just to mention a few.

Everything is relative, nothing is absolute – for there are all kind of unpredictable and uncontrollable at play.

If you expect success, you must be prepared to be disappointed with failure for success can never be guaranteed; at the height of a love relationship, hate is lurking around the corner for a breakup can’t be totally ruled out and a union is never guaranteed; the joy in a family can be turned into sorrow overnight with the sudden passing of a loved ones.

The highly rational and logical mind is reluctant to appreciate and accept the truth of this Law – being egoistic, it is arrogant to the extent that it refuses to countenance the reality that there are all kind of unpredictable and uncontrollable in life. Moreover, it can’t accept things that are beyond the comprehension of the five senses.

The refusal by the rational mind to accept the eternal truth of the Law of Opposites as a reality of life has resulted in human suffering since time immemorial.

However, if you are intelligent enough to go beyond the mind and to trust your spirit, you will willingly accept this reality of life and be spared of unnecessary suffering. An empowering shift has taken place in your worldview.

4. It will all depend on how you perceive the truth.

Some people are blinded by lies and they call it the truth. People kill for what they believed is true. Others will sacrifice their lives in the name of truth. People will pay good money to hide the truth. And there are others who will invent a story and profess it as truth.

If we reckon that the truth can transform how we see the world. Then it is vital for us to know what is the truth, to begin with.

So what is the truth?

Do we have to go to the Himalayas in search of the truth? Pontius Pilate was in front of Jesus who claimed that He is the truth and yet still asked Him “What is truth?”

Jesus declared “I am The Truth”. If He is the truth, does it mean that everything that is apart from Him was all lies? But in this world, anything that is popular can be labeled as truth. So which side of truth is the Truth?

Eventually, it is not just the truth that will change the way we see the world but the truth that we know and believe can make the difference.

And in order for us to attain this, first, we must be set free from the lies that camouflaged as truth. We must filter and test what we see on Television, on Movies, on Social Media, and also what we read.

And examine it if it’s in alignment with the only source of truth that I know. The word of God.

I have said at the onset of my answer that it will all depend on how a person will perceive the truth. But it is essential for us to test our truth and see if it is the liberating kind.

Because it is only when someone has been freed from ignorance that we can say that one has been enlightened by the truth.

The truth alone will not set us free, but the truth that we know and believe will liberate us from the slavery of ignorance.

And it’s only when one has been set free from ignorance that he will begin to have an impact in his world.

5. Firstly, you have to demystify “truth”. Let “truth” be “greater/ deeper veracity”.

Think of this: You had a map where your destination had been incorrectly/ inaccurately laid. According to this unveracious map, your vision of the path to destination comprising a set of particular waypoints would be less fruitful that the alternative vision derived from a veracious map. See how truth (greater/deeper veracity) changes how we see the world!!

Think of two alternative objectives of marriage, one less and the other more veracious. The first one is consummation of biological relationship between the spouses and the other one is weaving up an inter-spouse double-culture which would be the resultant of the personal lineage cultures.

The consequence of the making and availing of the double-culture is two-fold. Firstly, the making of the double-culture and living in it would raise the genetic/ evolutionary levels of the spouses to this doubled standard. Secondly, the offspring which would have the “double-genes identity” could mature into a full-blown individual only in this double-culture.

Now imagine the impacts of these two differential truths, differing in veracity, on the tenability and success of a marriage.

This shows how truth can change how we see the past.

6. Truth that which is, if you can glimpse it, changes absolutely everything and absolutely nothing.

Once truth is known and understood, every single experience in your life will be altered since your understanding of your life and your existence is altered. Everything in and below your awareness is filtered through your understanding, so knowing truth doesn’t just change how you view the world, it changes how you view yourself. Your feelings, emotions, your body, your thoughts, your memories, your goals and your previous understanding, will all be seen in a new, more accurate light.

Since truth changes how you interpret every physical and mental experience, your relationship with yourself and the world will be irrevocably altered. Fear, suffering, irrationalities, and narratives about what we think things are or what we’d like for them to be are no longer sustainable since truth obliterates the energy source sustaining them. This allows for a neutral view of the world since we’re no longer attempting to reconcile the internal imbalance caused by untruths. We’re also no longer attempting to resolve worldly issues or deficits because we see things as they are, and that type of clarity only supports essentially right action.

Nothing changes besides that though. You’re still the same person in the same world, it’s just that now you’re a very wise adult instead of an infant thanks to your improved understanding and enhanced perspective.

7. We can only experience our interpretations on imperfections. Truth by definition is absolute (perfect) and therefore cannot be interpreted or experienced. So, one is either truth or perception, one cannot be both.

That means we cannot crave the truth, we can only crave being true (which implies that we currently are not).

Therefore if from our current perspective we see the world changing (as per our interpretation) as perception changes, divided endlessly between good and evil, it follows that being true you see the world perfect. That it was you changing (as “good” and “bad” changes in our perception) not the world and the changing you inside was reflected on how you saw the world outside, through a continuous commerce.

This “you” running after change “outside you”, was your “survival” process. The process of keep feeling existent, resisting the fear of the experience of non-existence.

Now, how does this translate in “experience” terms? From the above we can reformulate your question as: How does it feel when you become love and love even your (ex) enemy?

For that I cannot answer since I haven’t reached that far lol!

But what logically follows is that one’s struggle to become truth (love) starts from the realization that one currently is not and that one needs soul cure from what prevents love to nest in our heart. And that’s passion, the fuel of pride, the love of idol-self.

How an abusive caregiver dose’s treating a child with consistent inconsistency impact said child in his or her adulthood?

  1. The parent’s inconsistency in response to the child would not make sense to the child. This would create infant disorganized attachment.

Disorganized attachment emanates from maternal inconsistent response to infant’s needs for nurturance and safety. Inconsistent response can range from intermittently ignoring distress cries for help to outright maternal physical aggression.

The dilemma confronting the infant, toddler and child is “should I go to mommy when I am hurt?” “Should I go to mommy when I need?” This sense of approach-avoidance is internalized by the infant, toddler, and later child and characterizes future adult relationships of fear of intimacy.

What is the effect of inconsistent maternal response?

  • The child would be unable to develop internal rules needed for later self-regulation.
    • The child would continually experience conflict between seeking the parent for relief and needing to avoid the parent due to risk of threat.
    • The primary model for nurturance that would be available to the child for future modeling into adulthood would be this parent’s model.
    • Developmentally sensitive brain regions needed for future learning and memory would be deprived the required stimulation needed for optimal development.
    • As far as the effects on brain development, reward networks associated social reward conferred with nurturance would be under stimulated. Networks relating to threat would be overstimulated. And it’s the latter that results in aversive memory’s implicit nature, which is easily forgotten into adulthood.
    • Changes in genomic activity that regulate gene transcription would serve to silence genes, would chronically activate threat systems and inhibit brain activity responsible for deliberate and explicit memory retrieval of earlier aversive memory referenced above.
    • Genomic changes in activity are typically not measurable during childhood but typically become apparent during adulthood, manifested in affective disorders of adult anxiety and depression, personality disorders, and mental illness.

2. The child may grow up with fear, and a sense that everything that happens is random. There is no predictability in life. Life is scary, and can’t be trusted. Could be very emotional in stressful situations. And behaviors such as you would see in a scared child might come out, such as crying, “Freezing in place” speak with frustration and no have a good base for problem solving. As a child you might develop insecurities about self and ability to have control in one’s life, and become a personality of being a victim of circumstances, having low self-esteem, and one who others take advantage of or may bully. Being forced to go with the flow of everything in life. Not having control over one’s emotional life, developing something similar to Post-traumatic stress disorder. Chronic anxiety. A worrier about the future things to come and a ruminator about how to fix problems that haven’t been actualized. . A person who cries or panics or stresses easier than most. Adults might develop a martyr or victim mindset and blame others. I feel that most could be changed or unlearned, and could make different choices with help, and lots of practice and mindfulness of the situation. To do this traumatize person needs a strong person who really can be relayed on, who is calm and patient and can help said person to come thru crisis’s or hard circumstances with an ability to Fix. Traumatized person needs to learn to fix own problems on their own in a controlled and safe environment. And develop higher self-esteem and an ability and knowledge to see and believe they are able of taking care of things on their own so they stop relying on others and really learn to be an adult in an adult world. The more chances they have in solving problems, the more insight, understanding, strength, emotionally, mentally and physically they will become and more successful they will become living a normal life freer of trauma, fears and anxieties, and happier and more content , as they should focus more on living each moment instead of worrying about things to come. 

3. Inconsistencies could mean a variety of things, all of which causing trauma to development in different ways. Having a mother with BPD meant growing up not knowing what to expect in terms of environmental mood or vibe, parental involvement on any given day, and an ever present anxiousness hoping that day would be one of the good days. . We constantly moved whenever mom was bored with her current routine. Hard to make long-term meaningful friendships when who knows what side of the city you’d be living in a year from then. Learning to successfully adapt to new places and faces at the drop of a hat resulted in a dissociative personality. But it also caused me to be responsible early on. I couldn’t be sure anyone would be there mentally or physically to comfort, protect, or nurture me, so I learned to cope with whatever worked. Now I’m excessively independent becoming quite fabulous at problem solving. Too stubborn and prideful to ask for help. Afraid to be let down yet again when the help never arrives. The constant manipulation and dishonesty from the people children are instinctively programmed to rely on directly resulted in severe distrust in everyone and the inability to create intimate relationships. Compliments make me painfully uncomfortable after years of abuse. It’s hard to explain how all of the trauma growing up has created a solid need for chaos in my adult life to feel like I’m thriving. I’m impulsive to an extreme. Most call me intense. I just feel different. Not in a good way but not necessarily bad either.

4. The child grows up terrified of being abandoned, living in a constant state of fight or flight. She has difficulty trusting anyone and sees problems in any relationship as a sign that someone is about to leave her life. This leads her to leave them before they can leave her.

She has trouble making decisions and being consistent in any part of her life. She believes she is worthless and undeserving of anything good in life. She feels angry, depressed, confused and unsure. She questions and refuses to trust whenever something good comes to her.

An adult child who grew up this way has a difficult time being consistent in any aspect of life, often being overly lenient or overly harsh with her own children.

She handles everything in life in harmful ways because it is what she saw and experienced growing up in a toxic home.

If she understands she needs help and seeks therapy she is diagnosed with Post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety and panic disorders. Depending on how she presents herself she may even be tested for personality disorders.

Now that things are finally beginning to make sense, she finally understands that she has been living through the eyes of that small, abused child and needs to reconnect with her if there is any hope she can cultivate positive, nurturing relationships and allow herself to trust.

5. That child will become burdened with a sense of guilt and desperately try to please others to be accepted and thereby derive a sense of identity.

One ought to be consistent and stable as a parent yet admit ones mistakes since pretending to be perfect might lead to before mentioned identity crisis.

Either being strict but consistent and still fair or loving and consistent with love while not weak but setting guidelines, is better than to be inconsistent which is confusing to a child and leads to self-loathing and trying to compensate by always seeking acceptance.

Being submitted to such stressful conditions might lead to dissociation: The minds method to escape from traumas by dividing the consciousness into separate units, causing loss of memory.

The certainty of being love worthy and good enough is essential to the blossoming of a child. Yet a kid should not be fooled to believe it is always right and above others as some parents teach them to become since they swear by building a strong egoist sense of self, which lacks the humility to learn important lessons in life.

A child ought to learn neither to be arrogant to others, nor to feel inferior: That is not what true humility means in the Bible. Many people, including fake Christians, raise their kids with guilt which they perceive is the way a Christian has to act and think. Rubbish!

Would you apologize to someone if you hurt their feelings by telling them the truth?

  1. Everyone says they’re sorry for any number of perceived infractions, all the time. They also use it as a form of sarcasm. If they say they’re sorry too much, it gets on my nerves, but as an informal matter, I suppose I’m no different than anyone else.

That gets me to formal apologies.

Where I have not played any role in the circumstances leading to said moment of truth, NO. I will nearly always express empathy or sympathy for the nature and circumstances of the truth, where I sense a need to deescalate a crisis that might be developing.

Where the subject of the truth believes I have played role in the circumstances leading to said moment of truth, when I have not, NO. I will probably explain myself, tell the truth, and nearly always express empathy or sympathy for the nature and circumstances of the truth, where I sense a need to deescalate a crisis that might be developing. Most of the time, I am oblivious, as is probably half the population, and I do not learn until later about the impacts of the lies of whatever variety on the subject. Contrary to popular belief, it is not incumbent upon me or anyone else to deliver everything we conceive to be lies, just in case; in many situations, this is inappropriate.

Where I have hesitated to fully disclose a truth, YES. I would likely apologize for hesitating, but I doubt I would hesitate until some crisis is afoot.

Where I have played a significant role in the circumstances leading to said moment of truth—N/A. I mostly tell the productive truth—where it is necessary, and only the parts that will likely lead to a positive, productive outcome.

The rest of the time, I have a decision: (a) leave the truth to the person who was responsible for lying or omitting the truth in the first place, stepping in only to prevent a disaster for someone who is in the dark, as would every concerned, conscientious, humane individual or (b) carry the truth to my grave as something that could never lead to any positive, productive outcome.

Sometimes truth is just truth in all its toxic glory. I will never divulge to the people I would have told had I thought it would have been positive.

2. Well it depends. If you hurt them by telling them the truth about something that’s clearly offensive like the way they look or are as a person, then yes you’d have to apologize for that. (Something’s are better left not said)

If you’re telling them the truth about something that happened or something that’s not offensive then no, you wouldn’t need to apologize. (Especially if they ask you for the truth)

People search for the truth but can’t handle it most times. I personally think no one should ever have to apologize when they tell someone the truth (If not offensive). It’s worse, if you lie. I guess it just depends what you’re telling the truth about.

3. If their feelings are hurt yes. And especially if I offered this “truth” without FIRST being asked to speak my mind. We only want to hear our own truth confirmed, and if we do not see an unpleasant/unflattering truth it is usually because we do not wish to see it (or cannot handle the discomfort of seeing it). Be gentle with people.

J. Krishnamurti said to never tell an unpleasant truth and that is a good adage to live by whenever possible. BUT if the person sincerely ASKS for your view of the truth, I think it is okay if you are tactful and gentle when you tell them what you think the truth is.
