Do You Want the Truth

Can you handle the truth? What if all the things that you think are true is just your current view of how things are and not the truth at all? Does that make your current views less valuable in this moment? What if what others believe is just their current view and not the truth? Does that make them less valuable as human beings?

What if the truth is that there is no TRUTH? Can you handle that? What if it is more important to be interested in what others believe and why they feel the way they do than to be critical and contradictory of them and their views.

What would the world look like if there were no “right” answers just different ways of seeing things? When we express that others have a right to their opinion, do we really mean it?

In one world you get to be “right” and hold that other people are “wrong”. Maybe you need to punish them, ridicule them, cajole them, deceive them, battle them, sue them, shun them, hate them, oppose them, fear them, rebuke them, discredit them, defile them, defeat them or even annihilate them. In this world you arm yourself, defend yourself, protect yourself, hide yourself, segregate yourself, disguise yourself and limit yourself.

In another world other people just have a different point of view or way of living. You get to accept them, play with them, communicate with them, respect them, honor them, learn from them and love them.

Which kind of world are you living in and creating? Who is responsible for the kind of world you live in and create? Can you handle the truth?

Thank you for sharing your truth right now with me, Michael, I think by listening to other's truths we learn more what our own truth is right now, what I learned from your truth is self-love, acceptance, and confidence. Thank you.
