Truth Is Truth

There’s a debate going on
in the world (not just in America)
about the nature of Truth.
When individuals can take the same circumstances
and draw completely opposite conclusions about them,
it’s easy to become confused and ask questions like
“Is there an objective Truth?” and
“Can we count on facts, or is everything relative?”
 
Here’s a truth that no one can escape:
Karma is real, and everyone really does live with the result
of their words and deeds.
You can run from the facts of your situation only so long.
No matter how chaotic the Universe seems,
we are governed by Spiritual Laws that apply to everyone equally.
 
What are people of faith to do
in the midst of this debate about Truth?
Speak your truth, live in alignment with your truth,
and change your mind and actions
when a greater or higher Truth is revealed.
This is God’s gift to us all:
Endless spiritual evolution.
