The Purpose of Truth

Studying truth principles is good for it is Truth Herself that started you on the search. But truth principles should never be reduced to an intellectual exercise whereby you can quote the scriptures but you still find yourself no better off or unable to demonstrate truth principles in your life. You can't be on the pursuit of truth on the one hand and still looking for answers in the human realm. As the Christ taught through Jesus:

"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." (Matthew 6: 24)
How can one get the benefit of truth teachings? By acceptance and surrender.

Imagine you are living in a reality where all is perfection, bliss, love and abundance. You have no knowledge of duality, fear, lack or evil. One day an explorer tells you there exists a reality of intense fear and lack. You listen in amazement as it doesn't seem possible. Just knowing that this reality exists is not going to let you have the experience. You are going to have to accept that that possibility exists. To accept a possibility is to be open to a new perspective. You imagine that possibility and you experience fleeting feelings and visions of what it is like living in that reality. You have entered the dream state. As you continue dreaming that possibility you end up living in that dream, for real, as you are in this dream reality called earth.

Truth is the reverse of the above analogy. Truth is a reminder of who you really are that the dream on earth is distracting you from. The more of truth you hear the more you accept it. As you accept the truth you begin to experience what it would be like living as Truth. Some of you may have visions, feelings or new ideas. You are effectively being Truth. Then you let Truth do the work of transformation. You witness Truth working Her magic all around you, transforming the dream into Reality.

One day you realise you are living in the consciousness of perfection, bliss, love and abundance that knows no duality, fear, lack or evil. One day another explorer tells you there exists a reality of intense fear and lack. You listen in amazement as it doesn't seem possible. You then have a choice whether to experience another dream or remain awake in eternal bliss.

With love,
