“your truth” is a cop out

If I hear one more person talk about “your truth” or “their truth” or whatever, I’m going to scream! There’s no such thing as your truth, my truth, his truth, her truth, their truth, our truth. Nope. Sorry. If you pick up a green crayon and “your truth” says it’s yellow, I’m sorry but “your truth” is false. It’s not yellow, it’s green. I know it makes us feel better to have a society that pats us on the back and says, “It’s OK, you’re right.” even when we’re wrong, and that’s what this whole “your truth” movement is if you think about it. No one is willing to tell someone they’re wrong.

But what’s right is this… the only truth that exists is THE truth. Going back to the simple crayon example, the crayon is either green or yellow. Blue, red, black, orange… sure there is a crayon for every color. But the green crayon is green no matter what “your truth” is.

It’s also funny that a lot of people who are so passionate about everyone sharing “their truth” are not very tolerant of people who disagree with them. I’m not sure what’s going on in America but if Alecia Keys’ behavior hosting the Grammy Awards last week is a microcosm of what our country is like now… well, I guess I’m hoping her example is just the Hollywood/elite/out of touch world view, not the majority of Americans.

Because I basically share nothing in common with anything she talked about during the Awards ceremony. In fact, I became so turned off by it all, that I literally turned it off. I wanted to celebrate music and musicians but the show was drenched in political agenda.  I guess that’s “their truth” and I should just go along, though, right?

  1. Amen brother…..PREACH! This “truth” you speak of is only a term to justify the perception of one’s own reality and has nothing to do with truth!!! Truth is fact, and DOES NOT have versions, but perception is a beast of imaginary justification to excuse unjustifiable behavior and avoid responsibility or ownership of one’s actions by creating and believing the label “their truth”.

      1. Thanks for your kind words Ben!! This is a topic of great importance to me and I try to only partake in the positive attributes of life, but this is a definite obstacle that is man-made created drama. We selfishly create our own perception of truth to conform to what we want, only to justify our wrongful decisions and assert, maintain, believe and dwell successfully in “our truth”. Knowing the difference between truth and perception is only the beginning of awakening to consciousness. It seems everywhere you go these days, humans walk around in a coma of perception: so confuddled by their false understanding of truth, they are unable to function properly in this reality called life.
