Beloved Flower Lover,
I accept me just as I am.
I love me, I care for me, I am happy.
I am in my second spring.
I have blosomed, flowered and am perpetually growing in beauty, joy, and happiness.
What I have learnt is this.
The problem is that most of us do not grasp the difference between what is true as opposed to truth. The world of our five senses is true. It is the “illusion” that ancients speak of. I did not for the longest time. I had to learn to give myself flowers. To balance out the negative that I had absorbed. I had to stop comparing myself and learn to appreciate myself. That is what I mean by giving myself flowers. I learnt this. What is true is shaped by our culture, ethnicity, race, nationality, gender, and so on. Because of this perspective, that which is true is ALWAYS half true.
Yes, you heard me.
That which is true to us is most likely not true for another with a different perspective.
Here is an exercise to demonstrate what I mean. Get a partner and face each other. Point and look to the right. Describe what you see. Both perspectives are true. Half true.
What I know is this, over the years I have seen how we can get very wrapped up in what is true and believe it is truth.
What my years have also taught me is this, truth on the other hand is eternal. It is beyond our five senses. That is why they are universal laws.
“So, for an example what you put out is what you get back is the prime universal law that operates the same on any level of existence.”
“What I have come to understand is that life reflects MY most intimate thoughts and beliefs. This universal law is Truth.”
“I have learnt that I am source energy experiencing itself. We are one. That is truth. If what is true runs my life then I end up feeling scared and anxious, uncertain. When I learnt to co-operate and operate in truth, then I felt the most empowered, less stressed, and more positive than I have ever felt. I learnt the difference between what is truth as opposed to succumbing to what is true.”
“I thank many teachers, including Reginald Martin who inspired the content of this post.”
