Take What Rings True


 The Truth About Everything

As we travel our journey through life, we only know one small speck of the painting, the BIG PICTURE of all there is.

When speaking of all there is, my mentor, Francine, described “all” as a painting and explained “As many years as I have been searching [for knowledge during life, on the Other Side, and as a Spirit Guide]… I have not even scratched the surface of that gigantic painting. I have not even begun to take one little fleck off, so you can imagine the magnitude of the knowledge that is yet to come.”     

To give you an example, let me tell you a story.


SIX  BROTHERS AND THE ELEPHANT
 
There were six blind brothers who lived in a small community in India. Their community looked after them and enjoyed sharing stories with them. The brothers had heard many tales of an amazing animal called an elephant. Many hours were spent arguing what an elephant must be like.  Finally, a friend arranged for them to visit an elephant, so they could learn first-hand.


 
As they approached the elephant, the first brother touched the animal's huge side and decided an elephant is surely like a large wall. 

 
The second brother touched the flexible trunk of the elephant and decided an elephant is surely like a large snake.
 

The third brother touched the animal's tusk and decided an elephant is surely like a sharp spear. 

 
The next brother touched the elephant's leg and decided that an elephant is surely like a tree.

The fifth brother touched the elephant's ear and decided an elephant is surely like a giant fan.

 
The sixth brother touched the animal's tail and decided an elephant is surely like a big rope.

As the brothers gathered to rest, they each argued their perception was the truth. They knew what an elephant was like. And each brother did have a bit of the truth, however none had the whole truth. 

We often believe our bit of truth is the whole truth. We believe our experience or opinion is the whole truth and don't stop to realize our truth may be part of the whole. 

Perhaps, we should allow others to have their truth which probably is not our truth. No group, no denomination, no philosophy has all of the truth. We can disagree, yet we do not know the BIG PICTURE, the Universe, the Quantum field, the Creation and Creator, the Source or whatever you wish to call all there is, the true entirety. 

We should take our bit of truth, our speck of the big picture and claim our truth. Gathering more knowledge can add to our speck of all there is, so ...
Take What Rings True to you and let the rest go.
