The Huffington Post just published another one of my articles. It begins:
“Don’t we all spend a lot of time looking for the truth behind every situation? Yet, there seem to be an infinite number of contradictory perspectives for every situation. It’s these perspectives that make up the very thing that creates this world. It’s as if the truth of any situation waxes insignificant. Instead, it is the popular perspective that rules the day. As Winston Churchill put it, “History is written by the victors.” Yet that truth applies not only to world history, but to the life and history of every individual on the planet. How we’re viewed seems to count for a great deal more than who we actually are”…
“That place within us where we are one with all that is,” Ahh, the truth that we can only “feel”
I found this article clarifies how our perspective shapes our lives, and where to find real truth and wisdom.
Sometimes I am okay with just not knowing the truth, or I even prefer not to know it. Other times, the reason I spend so much time looking for the truth behind a situation is that once I finally find it, I can get over it or let it go. That perhaps opens up the door to all possibilities, or at least some other possibility than the conclusion at which I arrived. Until I have found it, however, not knowing the truth behind a situation will annoy the $%@# out of me, like an irritating tag in the back of a sweater.
