On all topics we each have a truth that we hold. Often our truths can change over time as we evolve and associate new meaning to our life experiences. The trick is not to impress our truths onto others no matter how confident we each are about what we may believe. It’s better to simply share our perspectives as we offer others a way of seeing the world that lines up with how we see it without the expectation of convincing them to share our truths. This is a way for us to have mutual respect for others and their ideas without moving away from our own understandings.
I have searched and searched my intellect and I can only come to know one absolute truth in this universe. My own state of being. I am is the only absolute truth that I know. Not who I am, but the intrinsic knowledge of that greater part of me. This is not my physical body and not my thoughts, but the intention behind my thoughts will always be. Any other truths that I or anyone may hold are just perspectives that can and most likely will change with time and with different points of view.
So it is wise to listen more when we discuss our own beliefs with others. While I love to talk, I also love to find new ways of seeing my experience. But no matter what, truth as most of us know it is very malleable. It holds no true shape for long. Its size, shape and meaning are determined by the perceiver. This world and our ideas about it are a never-ending shapeshifting ball of excited clay, and we are the sculptor who molds it with our perception of it. So I affirm my absolute truths once again. I am love. I am joy. I am so very good.
