I have literally sat down at the computer tonight without knowing at all what I would write about. A few days ago I re-read The Four Agreements and I definitely want to touch on some of that in a post eventually, but not tonight. What popped into my head after that was something I read in A Course in Miracles this week. Here it is:
Truth needs no defense.
In this world of polarized viewpoints in so many aspects of our lives, but especially in Politics and Religion, this is something that if I can take down to my heart just might set me FREE! I don’t need to argue why I believe what I believe. I don’t need to attempt in any way shape or form to pull you to my side. At the end of the day Truth stands whether we’re there with it or not.
Next time I start to argue my point of view, I’m going to ask myself why I need to do that. If my ideas are so shaky that they need me huffing and puffing, then maybe I need to go within and ask to see the truth.
What I have decided is that when I get to a place, especially with Religion, where I can hear a different viewpoint and not feel attacked, then I have truly begun to live what I know. In the end, what you know intellectually can only get you so far, it is only when you are changed by it that you know it is Truth.
