And just because something has been written, published, mass-produced, promoted and funded by our leaders, and entire societies designed around its various concepts, doesn’t make it truth either! Or the best thing for any of us, or ever appropriate to our design!
My mother – who I only knew as ‘monster’ – told me “it doesn’t matter what is, only what you had people believe.” Or Truth was not important as long as people believed it to be truth.
Up until the day she died, she convinced her family and everyone around her, that she was “a loving mother” and “the perfect mother”, when this was far from the truth.
From this beginning I gained insight to notice, that the very same difference between ‘what is’ and ‘what people believe” is precisely what maintains ALL our differences and arguments with each other, the entire world over!
When truth replaces what is believed to be true, everything becomes reconcilable. Truly! 🙂
