My Truth or The Truth?

This is a conundrum as both are equally valid and yet can be at complete ends of the spectrum to each other. Neither right or wrong and both right and wrong in this world of duality.

Let’s take a look at “My Truth”. This truth comes from our personal experiences and training…. but eventually that truth changes over time, like when we outgrow a habit and discover a more effective means of carrying it out. A simple example of how time changes personal truth is… “When I was 5 years old I truthfully wore a size 5 shoe… now I am much older my shoe size is truthfully a 7.” This truth as is a fact of physical growth.

However, personal truth can have attached to it… VERY IMPORTANT qualifications… an emotional fact from our personal experiences… like.. “All Scorpios do me in!” Then we set up the experiences to validate those truths more so… the next time we come across a ‘Scorpio’ we already know or assume that they will do us in… this means we have become set in our truth. No changes can occur until we change our perspective on this emotional fact or truth. We don’t give the ‘Scorpio’ a chance to be their loving selves… we attract what we think or fear. We have placed ourselves in our own jail; along with the ‘Scorpio’ present.

Or “I don’t like a certain type of culture or food.” .. So when we visit that country we really have a hard time being involved in any fun there or when we eat that food we will have allergic reactions or arguments with our partner… a drama will ensue, instead of a full loving experience.

Our thoughts and emotions attract our experiences… not the other way around. When our ‘TRUTHS’ are set in cement, nothing flows, nothing changes, nothing grows.. and that’s what wars are created from, when the personalities forget that no thing has the complete truth and there is truth in all things.

These types of personal truths are really not truths but emotions that are caught up with ‘ideas’ or ‘concepts’ which continue to shape our experiences and usually not so nice experiences as we play them out. All of this can change at any time. One just needs to question oneself on the real NOW validity of these thoughts and emotions and change them to more realistic ones that suit us today. It’s like taking a stock-take on ME now and getting rid of the old stock and replacing it with new state of the art stock.

Then we have “The Truth”… There is really no real one truth as we are all living in a changing world. Yes there are the rules and laws of the universe, like the sun rises daily and gravity. These truths have no emotional charge.. they just are.

Mainly truths that are written or documented change over time as science, culture or religion either adds to the information or discovers a deeper understanding. Not too far back in history it was heresy to think or speak about the world being round! Darwin’s theories are being disproved in many ways; Fashion comes and goes; Religions change their rules and dogma; International, interracial and gay marriages are acceptable now. All of these truths have changed as our cultures become more relaxed about personal rights and lifestyles.

So truth is a changing subject, depending on time, discovery, co-operation and understanding.

My personal truth is based on how I feel, not my emotions (what I’ve been taught to feel). This is what I cultivate and it is based on love. When I question a concept, thought or situation that is ‘nagging’ me, I ask myself. “Where is the love here?” “Am I coming from a love stance?” “Who am I without my story?”

Then I take a deep breath and let it all go. I have my freedom internally back again… I return to my love… I am in my feelings again… I am in the right place at the right time for me… that is my truth.
