The Ultimate Truth

There is an “Ultimate Truth”, but it consists of the addition of everyone’s perception of every event. You can not even understand one other person’s perception of even one event, not even if you are identical twins, so trying to look at an idea or event, to determine the truth that everyone will understand and accept equally, is futile.

This is why you should not judge another person or any situation that turns up in your experience. Judging is the attempt to impose your perception on to other people and this can not work (at least not for long).

Everyone acts out their lives based on who they believe they are and for most people, this was “given” to them by their parents, their teachers and their culture.

Only when we “choose” to recognise that we are living unconsciously, living our lives automatically, based on our conditioning, can we begin to awaken.

This is our choice.

Timely post - for me. (The topic of "truth" and perception.) I think I'm at (or getting to) the point where I'm beginning to awaken. (Slowly.)
