30 Nov The Insistence on Finding the Truth – December 1 2018
Posted at 19:40h in Daily Thoughts
The insistence is on finding the truth – going towards the truth. That word, Truth is such an important word. So, in this pilgrimage of life too, stick to the truth as far as possible, especially on this journey because we live in a world where everything is a lie. Advertisements that we are exposed to in everyday life are lies, untruths or half-truths. This is the world we live in!
Truth, in terms of the Veda, is that which never changes. What is it that never changes? It is the underlying field of consciousness, that place of spirit we encounter in our least excited state, when we allow ourselves the grace and the time to meditate. We go toward that truth each time we meditate. And, outside of meditation, we support our movement toward that truth by remembering that the truth of me is also the truth of everyone else I encounter, of every place I am, of every moment in this life. This truth underlies the whole of what is, and the more I know this for myself, and for you, the better life our lives can be.
Today I will look past the habitual thoughts and feelings that tell me who and what I am or am not, and I will know myself as the underlying truth of all that is. I will remember that, whether I can feel it in this moment or not, the truth of me is spirit.
