Growth comes from being able to resolve two conflicting truths. Our reactions provide us with information that allows us to resolve our frozen perceptions, also known as our beliefs.
Our simple definition for ‘truth’ as a fact or reality is closed, exclusive and reactive. It does not support growth, inclusiveness or creativity.
According to Merriam-Webster, an additional definition is a judgment or idea that is true or accepted as true. Judgment is defined as a formal utterance of an authoritative opinion. Therefore, truth is whatever the receiver accepts or believes to be true.
Beliefs are formed by our life experiences and our culture. Because we live in a rapidly changing, global environment, we hold different beliefs and therefore there is more than one truth. Our challenge and our opportunity is to resolve opposing truths.
Our beliefs influence our truth.
When we recognize a belief as a frozen perception based on our experiences and culture, we can learn to resolve these energetic structures to better understand how others perceive the world. This allows us to recognize our reactions as an normal response to our beliefs. It also allows us to appreciate that the passionate truth of others is based on their unique experiences and culture. From this viewpoint, as we introduce diversity of thought, we can better appreciate that we experience different versions of the truth. This is normal. It will not feel comfortable but we must embrace it to resolve it. Conflict, tension and reactions provide us with information to neutralize the underlying triggers for growth.
Resolving our beliefs.
Our work resides at a spiritual (energetic) level rather than a cognitive level. These frozen perceptions lie below our level of awareness and we are require a tool to identify, isolate and neutralize the perceptions. The tool is surprisingly simple because words have the power to shift energy. Dr. Willem Lammers has developed Logosynthesis® as a profound, compassionate philosophy and a simple guided-change method. His work is based on a lifetime career of healing and development. By working with Logosynthesis®, we learn to resolve the frozen energy bound in sensory perceptions. As we restore the flow, we achieve more compassion and reconnect with our purpose in life. Although this may be difficult to comprehend from the current authority of scientific evidence, the work is simple and powerful.
We demand the truth from leaders and elected officials. Our society conditions us to accept voices of authority as fact and reality and therefore the truth. Each of us has an opportunity and responsibility to explore and resolve our reactions to these voices. This will allow us to better work together for expanded perspectives, creativity and inclusiveness. As we shift from anger and frustration to compassion, we are better able to act on rather than react to the challenges we face.
Achieving a higher truth.
The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms opens with the statement: ‘Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law’. It will require this combination of spirituality and morality to provide both compassion and structure to embrace diversity. Together, we can resolve opposing truths and shift to a new level of understanding so that all members can fully participate in a welcoming, safe and inclusive environment.
