Truth is or isn’t

Truth is not constant, is customized. Our beliefs shape our truth...our belief about our own selves. What is true, for one, doesn’t and cannot, necessarily be true for the other one.

That which “feels” true, rings true, is...and that which doesn’t, isn’t!

Difficult to believe it as a truth? Well, none is being asked to! Simply is shared, another observation,this one, from George Bernard Shaw: “All great truths begin as blasphemies.”

At the same time, the observation, made above, doesn’t claim anything, and definitely not“greatness!” The observation simply is a realization.

Do we know our way?

Each one of us has a right to our views. Who are we to seek explanations from others for their beliefs? We aren't here to judge, not even self, but simply be who we are, by knowing who we are. When we know that, we know that we can disagree without being disagreeable. We also acknowledge that more often than not our views, naturally, differ. We are uniquely "wired," within. Our perceptions simply are, neither good nor bad. When, one does something, one does from one's level of perspective, which, when others disagree with, they deem it wrong. We have our reasons behind believing and disbelieving for which neither are we to be hailed nor hauled. 

True, incidents are prevalent which evokes extreme emotions, but then, do we ask, what we are doing and who we are being? Directly, we have control over own selves, and if we do that, that alone would be something. And if one is still intent upon why is someone getting that they are, for doing what they are, simply applying the logic of the mind would never suffice. Like-energy situation creates resonance, and thus happens materialization. Likewise, dissonant condition creates undesirable condition. Whether we agree or not, doesn't change the fact: "As we sow, so we reap." From what level we are sowing—unconscious or subconscious—that is something else, which the conscious mind knows not. Yet, when one is aware of this mechanism, one learns to feed consciously harmonious thoughts, irrespective of what the external says and does, leaning not on the external. The external is our prior projections; future could be consciously created by conscious projection in the present. All said and done, in our life, what we do and who we be, matters...and we have the right, to be, remembering and following, always, for peaceful coexistence, honoring the life of else, as much as we do ours: "Live and let live."   

PS: It is a part of the comment on two comments (by Dipak Chakravarty and Swagata Mazumdar) made on an insight shared, on Facebook, of Neale Donald Walsch's (shared on February 12, 2014; anybody interested can find the entire "thread," on my Facebook profile). Thanks to them.
