Truth Seekers

posted by Cheryl Petersen

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.

Years ago, we had horses. It was when a new revolution in horse training was occurring. Trainers were transitioning away from “breaking” horses, to training with compassion and understanding. We don’t have to follow the human pattern. “You’re hopeless, you religion scholars and Phari

Hanging out with Christ
It’s a tough call. If I found myself sitting in a boat, in rough water, and then I saw Christ Jesus walking by on the water, I don’t know if I’d risk walking on the water to be with Christ. Would I sit in the boat? The safety of the boat is already precarious, bobbing and thrashing in st

Have you ever looked at paint samples? Those dinky squares of colors in paint stores? You decide on teal green and take a gallon home to paint a room. Once on the wall, you want to gag. Returning to the store and paint samples, you select another color with caution. Deciding on emerald green,
