Discerning Truth

Please remember that the “good guys” and “bad guys” are not always who they seem to be. The wheat and the weeds grow together in all places — in individuals, in communities, in human institutions. It’s up to you to get quiet and discern the truth for yourself. Start by questioning everything you think you believe. Where did you get this “knowledge?” Did someone tell you to believe it; did you read it somewhere, etc? Quiet the thinking part of the brain for a while, and listen to your gut and heart. The Truth is true in all places and all times — so you know what it is, you can hear it, deep within yourself if you get quiet and listen. Please take your time. This cannot be rushed. When you sense what is true, you will feel confident, peaceful, even joyful. No one can take this away from you — ever! Also remember that those who know Truth are not generally the ones who are shouting from rooftops. They are the ones who go quietly and peacefully about their lives day after day, year after year. They will not force their beliefs on you. But they will share trusted guidelines, hundreds or even thousands of years old, for discerning Truth and making wise choices.
Peace to all!
