The Truth and nothing but the Truth
It’s a fine line, the truth.
There is her truth, his truth, their truth, the truth truth and your truth. Now that’s a whole lot of versions of the truth going around, don’t you think?
Remember the gold/white-black/blue dress controversy going around a few years ago? For those of you who may not remember the controversy of this “Little Blue Dress”, here is a recap….
People across the nation were losing their minds about whether a picture that depicted a pretty little garden party dress was a certain color. The internet even had a great divide. It was divided by people firmly in two camps: the white and gold, and the blue and black – with each thinking the other is completely wrong.
The first step to reaching a truce in the dress controversy was to construct a demonstration that could show to the “white and gold” crowd how the very same dress can also look “blue and black” under different conditions. Now you can go and do your own research on the dress (Proceed at the risk of losing your own sanity!), because people are still stuck on being right and others being wrong on that one. Or you can save yourself the whole can of worms and trust me (Never trust anyone who says “trust me”!) and check out this handy dandy graphic that might help clear up all of this “who is RIGHT” nonsense. It just may make some sense to you!
No one was wrong. It’s just a matter of perspective!
So here’s the thing. We all see and believe things differently—and that’s okay. It is so very freeing when you can come from the perspective that we all have different perspectives and we don’t need to agree. We especially don’t need to prove how right we are, just to be right, when we already know the truth!
So let some air out of that ego. You’ll feel a big swoosh of relief and then you can use that extra air to puff up your wings for being so smart and taking the high road.
The truth is that we all have our own truth. I’ve covered this topic many times before. You are essentially responsible for you and only you! Your actions, how you behave and how you choose to treat others. You are your own Truth. No one can tell you what your truth is. Only you can know that! If you don’t go within and get familiar with yourself, how are you ever going to know who you really are, who you came here to be and what you came here to do in that cute flesh suit you are wearing? There are extraordinary teachers in the world. Find the ones that resonate with you, but be careful of pedestals they are put upon and your belief systems around them having all the answers or believing that they have it all together. The truth is, we are all freaks in flesh suits and no one gets out of here alive. Hopefully we’ll just ascend into the 5th dimension, but in the meantime…keep yourself zipped up and discover what’s going on inside of you. Sit with that. Does that feel right? Does that make your heart sing? If it does, chances are you are on the right flight path.
In the end, the whole thing is between you and the creator of all that is (god) or, source, and “schnitzel with noodles” (Oh wait–that’s the lyrics to “My Favorite Things” from the Sound of Music. Sorry. I’m hungry.). Okay. Well, you can call it whatever you want it to be. You’ve got to have some trust and faith that things are well-covered somewhere outside of yourself, so you can give these thoughts a rest, so you live resentment free and get on to keeping on what you came here to be. YOU! Living in your truth and authenticity!
Are you still with me?
No one has it all together. Everyone–and I mean everyone–here on earth has their inner knowing and that includes you! Sometimes we just need help tapping into that knowledge and that’s where a good spiritual counselor like me comes in. We all need help and outside perspective, but we also need to listen. To be still, go within and listen. There is treasure there–lots and lots of it! We are all here for the human experience. So yes, look for teachers you admire, teachers that inspire you. Strive for those behaviors you want to emulate, but more importantly, go within and listen to YOURSELF! If you trust enough to ask for the answers, then you’ve got to be willing to trust the answers you receive or find another source that resonates with you until it feels like truth to you. You’ll know.
So the truth is, you can be right without needing to make anyone wrong (most of the time). You’re welcome! Capish?
And yes, the dress was blue …………. Who knew? Me, that’s who! (It’s like the blue pill verses the red pill from the Matrix–but that’s another blog…)
The EDGE in this Angel with an Edge is there for a reason, people!
Until next time keep your Wings Up, your mind and especially your heart open.
I have faith in you!
