As this week is beginning, I would like to give you a theme to ponder in the coming days. It’s a theme that you’ve been pondering since you began creating your memory as a child. That theme is Truth.
Aren’t we all naturally-born truth-seekers? We all want to learn the Truth but when we think we finally “got it” it suddenly slips away. I am guilty of thinking that the Truth was a black and white kind of thing. You are wrong and I am right. Only one truth must be accurate and all else are failed fallacies.
But lately I have adopted a more colorful new perspective to Truth. It could be best summarized by this quote from one of my all time favorite books, Conversations with God:
“Probably the biggest truth that you’ll all agree is that truth, like life itself, is a changing thing, a growing thing, an evolving thing – and that just when you think that process of evolution has stopped, it has not, but only really just begun.”
Just as God told Neale, I’ve allowed my truth to grow and evolve as my life does. I admit that I don’t have all the answer nor do I strive to have them anytime soon. I don’t waste my energy on trying to prove my truth to others; neither do I force anyone to accept it. Instead I share my truth and respect that we all have our own version and that is okay with me.
So for all of you truth-seekers out there, learn to be flexible like the stones in a river. Allow the truth to shape you as the river shapes them. Those who resist are eliminated from its path. Those who allow find that they are part of the river.
