“Truth is beautiful,
without a doubt;
but so are lies.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
Just as I’ve learned that there is no way, but there is your way, my way, and their way, the same philosophy applies to truth and lies. One person’s truth is another person’s lies, and so on. It is purely personal judgment that thinks one is better than the other. With many billions of us on the planet, that idea is even more valid.
I love how Abraham, Esther Hicks makes such sense of this idea:
“There is a big mix out there, and there’s lots of different things going on, and there is not one way that was intended to be the right way. Just like there’s not one color or one flower or one vegetable or one fingerprint. There is not one that is to be the right one over all others. The variety is what fosters the creativity. And so you say, “Okay, I accept that there’s lots of variety, but I don’t like to eat cucumbers.” Don’t eat cucumbers. But don’t ask them to be eliminated and don’t condemn those who eat them. Don’t stand on corners waving signs trying to outlaw the things that you don’t like. Don’t ruin your life by pushing against. Instead, say, “I choose this instead. This does please me.”
Allowing the entire mix of things and ideas and choices to be and relax in our own ability to choose what is important and pleasing to us is to live a very healthy life I think. Pushing against unwanted only increases unwanted. What we resist persists. But we always have the personal power of choice. What we choose could be easily seen as our only responsibility.
To Each His or Her Own.
Spread Some Joy Today–by realizing as Eckhart Tolle said so succinctly: “All problems are illusions of the mind.” That means that we can choose not that, but joy instead.
