People on a spiritual path often wonder what the REAL truth is.
Some people think they know the truth. Some people search frantically for it. Some people know that they know a little of the truth, but not the Whole Truth.
For those wondering what the ultimate Truth is, this may help: Picture an upwards spiral… a spiral of Light, Knowledge, and Truth. Everyone is on a different part of the spiral. On each part of the spiral, people have different understandings of the Truth. People on some of the lower levels of the spiral believe certain things. People on higher levels of the spiral believe other things. When people reach a certain height on the spiral, they don’t just believe things, they know things, because they experience things. They actually experience the Truth.
Of course, at lower [and other] levels of the spiral, people also experience a Truth. They experience their version of the Truth. Just as people high on the spiral experience their version of Truth.
So what, exactly, IS the real Truth?
Of course, there is only one Ultimate Truth. However, you have to reach the top of the spiral to experience and know it. Some call this Enlightenment. On the way up the spiral, you will experience many other Truths as well. It doesn’t mean that your version of the Truth at a lower level is wrong; it simply means you are at that particular level of the spiral. Eventually, you and everyone else will make your way up the spiral and experience greater Truths.
This post is dedicated to those of you out there who are confused, doubting and/or angry about something you might have believed in the past or present. There is no reason to be angry about what you believed in the past that turned out not to be ‘true’. If you look at it as just another place on the upwards spiral, or a step on a stairway to Light, it will make it much more bearable, much more sensible. People believe what they are capable of believing, what they have experienced and know in their hearts. It doesn’t make them, or you, wrong.
