A common definition of Truth is this: “The property of being in accord with fact or certainty. In everyday language, truth is typically ascribed to things that represent the reality in beliefs, propositions, or declarative sentences. Truth is usually held to be the opposite of falsehood.”
Yet where do the essences of Truth actually abide? And by what means are they sustained?
The words truth and fact are seen often as being interchangeable. And yet they are not …
A fact is defined as something that is known, proven to be true, then able to be agreed upon. Or, in select instances, it is information used for reporting news, for evidence, or as a part of a publication.
Yet after remarkably short spans of time and repeating, facts may well get blurred into fiction — beliefs or statements (often inadvertent) that are false, yet still accepted as truth.
As you saw in our previous blog post, “Care with Origin Myths”, what seem like factual answers come to you in various forms, including myths that, over time, become entrained sources of legends, folk tales, or other determinant patterns of concept.
Actually, Truth is of quite a different nature than fact. It is a powerful element that sublimely imbues a Soul’s deep feeling realm, self-governed thought, and honed physique with currents of Love and Life.
Being constantly and contently aware of Truth is by no means dependent upon external fact-finding for assurances of verity in one’s ongoing experiences. Rather, the Spirit of Truth bestows Divine Illumination that compels a uniquely deep love for the Source Energy within one’s Highest Self.
Here follows two meditative exercises that I originally generated and have found useful in my Energy work, specifically with “Emanation-Actuated Resonance” (i.e. “EAR” training).
The first mediation, taken from 1 Corinthians 13, beautifully describes those Essences of Love. I suggest that you meditate, morning and evening, with the following text in front of you:
“Love is patient, Love is kind.
Love does not envy, It does not boast, It is not proud. It does not dishonor others.
Love is not self-seeking; It is not easily angered; It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with Truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
This second exercise introduces a simple, down-to-earth (yet telling) set of questions for you to ask yourself alone, in privacy and meditative quietude. Eight questions await you (herein below):
— What is your earliest memory?
— When did you first fall in love? With whom, or with what – a lifestyle, pursuit, vision? What?
— How has your life been different from that which you envisioned earlier on?
— Who has been kindest to you in your life?
— What are the most important lessons you have learned in life? From whom (if applicable)?
— If you could forever hold onto the most treasured memories in your life, what would they be?
— What does your future hold?
— How would you like to be remembered?
