What amazes me, and I don’t take this lightly, what truly amazes me, is that for millennia people have been killed in the name of religion. People have savagely destroyed communities in the name of ‘our way or the highway’. Religion has, and continues to, govern masses of people through guilt, fear and shame.
I have committed my life to doing the work that I do because I believe that every person on this planet has their own version of the truth and they should be allowed the freedom to express and explore this.
Would it surprise you if I told you that people in the same belief systems have their own internal representation of that specific belief system. There is joint commonality and individual perceptivity.
And all this in the name of finding the truth.
So what if I told you – this is all meaningless.
Because at the end of the day – the truth has been so close to you, that you completely missed it.
The truth is – the TRUTH is within you and always has been.
Sure, you can sprout some mumbo jumbo that that is just another way of trying to describe the truth. But it isn’t.
Everything I know is experiential.
Something that I will write more about later.
But what I want you to know is that the most important takeaway from this article is that you need to find a way to be comfortable with the TRUTH within you. It might look and feel different to what you anticipated, but it is there. Under all those layers of mythology, indoctrination, a need to fit in – believing whatever it is we need to believe so others will accept us …. and much more.
My inner Teacher is my internal Guide. My own internal GPS system. My inner compass.
I am a student of A Course in Miracles – but that is just one way of many ways to find your way homeward. This might be the way for you or it might not. Just find the way that resonates with you and follow that with all your heart.
We are all on a journey.
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
