You Can’t Stop The Truth
As human beings, each of us is a complexity of experience, genetics, knowledge, opinion, bias, fear, judgment, and imperfection. Throughout our lives, we have gathered information, formulated thoughts, conclusions, and feelings. We react to our environment, especially to other people. Our core values direct our life whether we are aware of it or not.
Facts are indisputable, measurable, and descriptive aspects of physical things in the world around us. They are discovered, formulated, documented, proven and are real. Information is the totality of individual details of anything and everything. Facts and information help us make sense of the world and all that is in it, via dictionaries, reference books, diagrams, formulas, instructions, etc.
“And then there is Truth… Ah yes, those things that exist in a vacuum, that many times cannot be seen, heard, touched or proven, but merely acknowledged… Things like; time, good and evil, the universe, electricity, life itself… and God.”
There are truths we more readily accept because we don’t or can’t perceive the difference they create by their existence, and then, there are Truths we protect with our lives; justice, freedom, goodwill, fair play, safety, philanthropy, love… and our Faith.
Try as we might, and people have; we cannot prove or disprove faith. Truth can not be compromised or erased. Facts are not the truth. Indeed, that is the fundamental essence of it and which defines it. To understand faith, you must possess it. To understand Evil, you must recognize and know it. To understand goodwill, you must demonstrate it. To comprehend God, you must experience Him. This is precisely why Good and Evil exist in the world; so that people know the difference between them and can recognize them when and where they exist.
As a Christian by choice (you know, that Free Will thing), I believe in my heart that God is Truth, God is Light, Light is Truth, and that Truth is Unconditional, like Love and Compassion. I acknowledge God as my savior and strive to practice His Truth daily, in spite of the fact I am an imperfect being. Indeed, I am imperfect so that I can recognize God.
To fully experience life and grow as a human being, it is essential to face the truth, every time and in every way. The Truth strengthens and enriches your soul. It crystalizes priorities and solidifies motivation. It makes your hopes and dreams achievable and is the basis for happiness.
You can’t stop the Truth, and Only the Truth will set you Free!
