Know The Truth And It Will Set You Free
|The Truth Is The Heart Beat Of Life|
Truth is not merely a list of abstract ideas or a collection of factual data. Rather, truth "Are Truth"is what makes up our reality, the sum total of that which we believe. It is entangled within our very being. The Bible says that The truth of Gods Love is Written on our hearts. What does that mean? Is there a some sort of tatoo carved on the walls of our beating heart. I dont think so. But for the purpose of this website I believe that the truth is the heart beat of our lives.
My truth was instilled in me before I was born. Than it was embedded in my heart and mind through my parents, teachers, pastors, and many other influences that shaped and made my reality. Of course I have free will but than this so called free will is only as free as my mind allows it to be. Lets face it if we believe in everything that we were taught than surly someone somewhere is lying to us. For example, how long did you believe in Santa Clause, or the Easter Bunny? For a time, your reality was putting out cookies and milk and scurrying around the yard in search of eggs that a giant rabbit hid the night before. To Know The Truth is far better than to believe a collections of experiences and beliefs that were passed down to you by others who were living a lie.
“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change,” said Albert Einstein.
Change is not easy. Many times it is not a pleasent thing to go through. But, it may just be the intelligent thing to do. I used to have a commute to work that took me 45 minutes. I found all the short cuts. One day a bridge that was being repaired went to one lane. Many times I would wait up to five minutes sitting in trafic just to cross the bridge. This was my way, my short cuts that enabled me to get to work in the shortest amount of time. I could sit and grumble everytime I came to the bridge and be five minutes later on my trek to work. Or I could change my route. I ended up trying different routes that would bypass the road construction and still get me to where I wanted to go. That was my measure of intelligence.
I May Not Like It
Sure I may not like the truth about many subjects. Even about myself the truth can be very hard to swallow. Do I really want people to know MY truth? We all have things that we would rather not share with others. More importantly we all have things that we believe about our world around us. These beliefs can trap us in a prison made by our minds. Its this Prison of beliefs that we need to be set free from.
Join me on a journey that explores the truth about many subjects. Honest education is a good way to find the truth. Examining the evidence is a way juries decide what the truth is. Lets stop believing the latest trend or what feels good. Lets become scholars of the truth. As for me....well I don't want to come across conceded or opinionated but than I can afford to be because I'm Right!
