And a time to every purpose under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3 Verse 3-22. Or, The Byrds…
Always people on their knees begging to learn the big “T”: ‘Truth’. Until you start to speak it to them. But how many people truly listen past the verses they want to hear?
Because once you start to speak and listen to the truth you’ll quickly learn that:
They are all different.
And that is where it gets troublesome, when another’s truth is not mine, then comes the fight to make them align. And that’s the truth, Right?
Or is it?
I’ve always had more questions then answers, probably why it takes me so long to get some place, there are so many bunny trails to take.
Please hear me: this post isn’t about any religion, or belief being right, wrong, or anything else. Believe and live as you wish. It’s about how very difficult it is to express and listen to another persons radically different experiences of the same world. I am only asking you, to ask yourself: how fair and open to another’s differences are you; does it unhinge you when your views clash, why?
And when it’s your time to listen to a radically different person telling you what the view of the Universe looks like from the window of their eyes, how much of your truth can you hold on to, and how much will you let theirs effect and change you while you listen? How long will/can you listen and hold your peace?
That’s like Ninja Level consciousness training.
But don’t worry, if thinking for yourself or struggling with thinking about the world from a different perspective then your own is too challenging, because, equal to the people begging for the truth as they wish to know it are the people on pedestals ready to take your precious time and money to tell you what to think, or sell you the story that is exactly as you think, or build and lead a force of people that will think exactly as you think.
I am sure it will all be ok then, right?
Or will it?
