What is truth as we move through this life? We all have an idea of what is true and right and good based upon our upbringing, laws of the land, ethics set forth by academia and morals set forth by our religious leaders. These are the “codes of conduct” devised by humans, but do they show the path of truth? Many times this code of conduct leads us in circles that contradict and confuse.
Truth cannot be intellectualized. It is not a concept that can be parsed out, theorized, or negotiated. Truth simply is and it does not come from the mind.
The truth of who you are and how you should behave is something you simply know. It comes from inside you and is a knowing or a feeling that cannot be compromised. That is not to say that we don’t compromise truths everyday because of typically selfish motives, but that does not make it right.
We all know immediately when we are living our truth, when we make decisions that are consistent with who we truly are. The decision may not make sense, it may not be supported by everything that lead up to that particular decision, but we know it to be true and right and good nevertheless.
We also know immediately when we make decisions that are not consistent with our truth. There is always a ting of guilt or shame when we step outside of our truth. We have all done it and I bet we will all do it again. That is part of being human.
Instead of intellectualizing your decisions, let them flow from within. Pay attention to the warm fuzzy feeling that wells up from within and follow its lead. This is your True Self suggesting the way. It does not follow a code of conduct, it follows Truth.
Follow your Truth and you will always find yourself where you need to be.
