- 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.
