Energy Musings. Here. Now.
Truth. why do we seek it? why do we need it? why are we so concerned with Truth? who’s truth are we seeking? Is it Truth we really want or are we seeking something else under the guise of Truth? Is there an avoidance of uncertainty that drives this need for Truth? Are we uncomfortable with doubt? What lies beneath this need or search for Truth?
What do you think the Truth will bring you? happiness? love? ease? peace?
“Only tortured people seek “truth”” says prominent Buddhist teacher Ken McLeod.
Will Truth really set you free? If you know the Truth will it really make everything else clear? Or has our drive toward Truth simply become a coping mechanism in an out of control, chaotic, world and life? What if Truth is completely contextual?
Whenever you find yourself really latching on to something, like needing to know the Truth, raising your fist in rage and passion, get suspicious. Bring discernment to this place. How do you FEEL in your body when you tune in to this latching on to Truth? Is there an emotional trigger, an attachment? Remember this clouds your ability to discern. Always. Step back. Do nothing. Let go.
Get off the Truth wagon.
