“The only reason we chase after ‘the truths’,
is that we want to feel safe in knowing.”
– Jennifer Hough
Recently, one of our Facebook group members tagged me on a meme asking for my take on this statement:
“Truth stays the truth no matter by how much ignorance it is surrounded.”
Thought I’d share it with you in this week’s Weekly Inspiration in case you missed it.
“First of all, lol, just because something is on social media as a meme, doesn’t mean it’s true. LOL, the irony is not lost on me.
For me the only truth is that which we declare as true because of the laws of physics, making what we declare simply ‘a truth for now’, not ‘THE truth’.
Consciousness is constantly changing, so ‘the truth’ is that things are constantly evolving and so what seems to be the truth for now, may not be true next week (or the next afternoon) because we have a new or deeper awareness that changes how we see things.
I would be very curious about who is asserting that there even is ‘the truth’. Sometimes, well-meaning people consider anyone who doesn’t see things their way to be ‘ignorant’ which is just a form of protection. We are all ignorant to some degree (not seeing the depths of the available wisdom because we are not yet at that point), because we know far less than there is yet to learn.
Finally, the only reason we chase after ‘the truth’, is that we want to feel safe in knowing.
Life is an adventure into the unknown, so we must remain curious rather than dogmatic or we stop growing, meaning we are choosing to stop expanding with consciousness. We need to remain a curious creator of life, rather than simply fading away.
So much to say … but I think that will do for now.
