Our Personal Truth is a set of closely held beliefs that have evolved over time in response to all of our combined experiences. It shapes our worldview and helps to define our concept of right and wrong. In a perfect world, everyone’s Truth would be well informed and reasoned. Unfortunately, far too often that isn’t the case. It takes courage to explore the origins of our beliefs and an even stronger will to shape and mold them into a mature vision of ourselves. Without this process, we are much more vulnerable to other people’s opinions and the constant battery from our modern belief systems.
Be wary of large shifts in belief that follow the latest trends. Often the greatest of evils arrive right after such a cultural event. We all know people whose Personal Truth is perhaps more flexible than it should be. Over time, this kind of moral ambiguity becomes easier to spot. We then have the opportunity to learn about other people’s journey and embrace or avoid their thinking. Perhaps the most important aspect of a well defined Personal Truth is it should evolve slowly over time with careful consideration of our place in this world.
