Truth Seekers

Religion and science experts claim to know truth. Their truths often conflict therefore honest truth-seekers set out to fight the religion and science expertise attitude, not to denounce, but to retain the enormous possibilities to access a non-conflictive sensible knowing. Yet, victory requires a crusade, and the momentum of that crusade brings new forces into the movement. Common, but mindful people are determined to make their life mean something and will not settle for a truth dooming them to suffer and die. But, there will also be a powerful interest in maintaining control over the truth, therefore new religious leaders and scientists will come into play, tapping into the prospect of the truth-seekers, to accomplish their own rise to leadership and a higher standing in the world.

The crusade to discover truth emulates emancipation without freedom unless the individual truth-seeker can maintain a posture of impartiality—not so much as being fair or objective to both religion and science but as being open-minded to divine Truth. Instead of aligning oneself with a religious or scientific truth, align oneself with the principle of knowing.

This means we can’t just accept everyone else’s truth. We can’t just believe everything we hear or think. There must be a semblance of individual knowing. This knowing is on an intuitive spiritual level and backed up by what we identify as the physical. In other words, this knowing is not grounded on a physical level, later to be backed up by the intuition or the spiritual.

For example, I can read religious and scientific books however what I read isn’t the truth. But, the words can open my mind to a greater picture of life, truth, and love, which in turn allows a knowing.

Inspiring person, Rosamond Carr
Not what I’d classify as a religious person, but spiritual, Rosamond Halsey Carr tells her story in her book, Land of a Thousand Hills: My Life in Rwanda. Published in 2001 and read by me last month, I recommend this book as a picture of woman’s self-realized independence, inner splendor, and ou

A star gymnast
Film, The Gabby Douglas Story (2014), captured many of the emotions that surely were experienced before medals were earned at the 2008 Olympics. Gabby’s family, already at a level of impoverishment, sacrificed for Gabby Douglas to continue training. And, although tempted, Gabby didn’t give up.
