Do Not Let Your Thoughts Keep You From The Truth

 Do Not Let Your Thoughts Keep You From The Truth

Most people feel they are intelligent, at least in one aspect of their life. At times, people think others know nothing while they know everything. In many ways, it all falls upon perspectives. The way you view a specific situation tells a lot about who you are as a human being. If you consider the glass half full or half empty, it tells a lot about you and how you live your life. Multiple individuals can believe multiple perspectives in society. It is difficult to know who is correct or who is in error.

This statement relates, remember to stay intelligent in spite of your education. Just because someone is educated with multiple advanced degrees, or has skills in some technical procedure, does not mean they are correct. While experience and expertise can help you make decisions, it does not mean they are right in all subjects or matters. It is their opinion, and it could be correct or incorrect depending on many circumstances.

Finding the truth has always been difficult. With advanced technology, computers, and the Internet, people might believe finding the truth is easy. Someone who spends a lifetime studying a particular subject realizes how little they know about it. Humanity is only around long enough to see part of the road, missing the beginning and end. Using only a tiny slice of this metaphorical road does not guarantee to realize the truth.

When seeking the truth, trust your instincts. Being human, there will be self-doubt. However, these instincts are gifts from the past, allowing us to make decisions quickly and effectively. Our ancestors realized inaction would lead to termination. Doing something will at least give you a chance to survive during the problematic eras of humanity's past. When your face making a decision, inaction is not an option. It would lead to the same thing, nothing improving.

Deep inside, you know the truth. You know what is keeping you from achieving your goals and dreams. You must trust the process. It will be difficult at times. However, when you look back many years later, you realize that you tried to do something to improve your life. Hopefully, you will have a big smile on your face. Listen to others and gain their wisdom. Ultimately you are the one that must decide what is best for your future.

When Times Are Falling Apart

When Times Are Falling Apart



It is easy to look at the world and see everything is falling apart. When times are falling apart in your life, it is difficult to find the positive parts that go unnoticed. Often, we focus on the negative aspects of life. While that is important, focusing on the positive elements of life will give you greater peace of mind. As you get older, you realize many things are entirely out of your control. And once you are free from trying to control the world, you are free to do whatever you want in life.

Being afraid of things that you have no control over is an exercise in futility. Instead of focusing on what you can not control, focus on what you can improve in your life. Take a moment, step back, and access your situation. Hopefully, you can find the answer to any difficult problem or situation in a moment of clarity. 

When everything falls apart all at once, it may feel like the world is against you. The world is not against you. How are you face a difficult situation or period in your life is how you face life in general. The world does not owe you anything. You have the opportunity to make your life the way you want it, do not squander that opportunity.

Every situation has a solution. It may not be a perfect solution, but a solution will be apparent with a clear mind. Use your life experience to make wise decisions. Seek help from those that have the wisdom to help you discover solutions to a problematic situation. Approach a problem with humility, and the answer will soon follow. Take a chance and try something, anything, to solve the crisis. If you do nothing or do not change anything, that problem will never improve. Believe in yourself.

You Think You Know Everything (You Do Not)

 You Think You Know Everything (You Do Not)

Everyone thinks they are correct most of the time. Some are willing to stand corrected when they are in error. Many will never backtrack upon what they have said. Why is that? What makes us want never to correct something we said?

Perhaps, it is human nature. In the past, second-guessing yourself in life and death situations could prove fatal. Indecisive and the lack of doing something to improve your lot in life would mean you were left out. 

Today this is not true. We have a wealth of information from the internet to learn from with a few keystrokes. Communication around the world is instantaneous. Anything that you care to learn is available at any time of the day.

So why not use these amazing tools. Researching today is easy. Information from all the different parts of the world provides an opportunity to learn from people that would have been impossible to learn from in the past. Just because these tools exist does not mean they are used. That is a shame because humanity appears at times to have less knowledge with all of this information.

Is there a point where there is too much knowledge available? Are there too many sources to draw information from? Can these sources on the internet be trusted? So many questions, if only the internet could help answer them. 

A wise person is willing to learn. Learn from anyone and any place. Be wise in this information world. Remember to remain intelligent despite all this information. When you hear or read something, you know if it is too good to be true, so trust your gut. Read between the lines. Learn and share that knowledge with others. And be willing to debate with others that you disagree with. Debating them will make you better at understanding that topic and finding flaws. 

The truth is out there waiting for you to find it.

Your Inner Truth

Your Inner Truth 



These Photos were taken Ten Years Apart

We all have our own points of what the truth means to us. One truth is false to another. What is false is true to someone else. It is based on many factors and our biases from the voyage of living. 

Being objective is a great way to trek during your many revolutions around the Sun. Honestly, looking for the absolute truth means you realize that you may discover some falsehoods in your travels. Being honest and genuine to yourself when learning is complicated at times. We all believe that we are correct more than wrong. You have the details to decide when you can see the complete picture or at least the most comprehensive picture you can. 

It is interesting to ponder how two people who learn the same information can come to different conclusions. Neither person is wrong, only they each perceive the information differently. Once you can understand that others can perceive the world differently than you, the journey gets less burdensome. 

Learn from those that you disagree with in this amazing expedition. It may help you reinforce your beliefs and truths. You may share your beliefs and truths with others, and they may take some of them from you as their own. Probably not, so just enjoy the conversation. Listen and learn what you can. Hopefully, others will do the same. If not, at least you attempted to share what you have discovered from your journey.
