Believe No One

on October 4, 2011

Cari Cole’s blog has inspired me to talk about belief and truth.  Read her blog here.   She is a musician and as an artist has deep wisdom in her words.  Yes, artists usually do have a unique view of the world and because they have chosen to share their gifts with the world we are all better off.  I bet you are saying to yourself right now, I love Art!  You may even relate to the world as an artist and this is great.  I feel that there is an artist in everyone!

Her blog made this statement, ‘Believe no one – not even yourself’.  Now I succinctly remember hearing Don Carlos say this in an interview so who said it first does not matter.  The message is clear.  Or is it?

The world we live in contains shadows.  Look anywhere and you will see a shadow lurking somewhere.  This is your smaller self being revealed in a dualistic world of light and dark.  The ego self is your shadow and the Truth of you is Light.  Just as there are two sides to a coin, each person has two sides.  Which do you look at most often, the heads or the tails?

“Believe is a strong word. I prefer “consider”….. Consider everyone’s opinion and then form your own – but be suspect of yourself as well.  Next time someone offers you their opinion, consider the source and the motivation behind the opinion and make sure to decide for yourself whether the opinion is right and if so, that you will check in with yourself in a month of applying their comment and will not let it live in your brain forever.” Cari Cole

Not better advice have I heard.  Advice, opinion, point of view, perspective are each slightly different aspects of one whole, the Truth!  Of course even this is suspect.  Does an Ultimate Truth even exist?  We would all agree that each individual has their own Truth, but does “The” Truth really even exist?  The answer lies in your cosmology.

How do you see the world?  Has this changed in your lifetime?  I think this is what she is saying.  Live in the Truth of Now.  Be present to yourself in the moment and see the Truth as it exists right now.  It will be different in a month or maybe a day…

I invite you to consider your Truth and how or if that aligns with “The Truth”.  It is my belief that the Ultimate Truth speaks through you, as you, and in you.  The symbol of the lighthouse is a perfect depiction of this.  Be the Lighthouse.           Lighthouse
