How We Can Know What Is Really Truth

I am moved to share what I have come to believe after many years of life and of study and experience with holistic healing for myself and others. This is for your contemplation. You may not agree, however, I hope this is helpful in some way. Our true nature and identity as human beings is one of peace, joy, harmony and love...We are gifted with the ability to reason, imagine, dream and create our lives. We are also gifted with the ability to be guided, nurtured and sustained by an all-knowing universal life source. The interpretation of that life source is different for everyone. We are each totally unique and all have very specific talents and beliefs. Our life's purpose is to use those talents to help ourselves understand ourselves, our lives, purpose and meaning and to elevate our conscious awareness and help others in any way we can.

So while we all are so different, have different ideas and life choices, how can we know our beliefs, thoughts and actions are established in truth? For me, the answers to this question lies into the knowledge, experience and awareness that our basic nature is one of peace, joy, harmony and love. This is hard to believe in and of itself with all the unrest in our lives and in the world. However, holistically and energetically speaking, that is our basic nature. Just as nature is peacefully ordered, following natural cycles and dealing with whatever influences are apparent we are part of the same life energy system.

For me there is a simple "bottom line" process for knowing the truth: The first basis is we feel the truth. I base truth being whatever creates our natural state of being. If your thoughts, beliefs, words or actions bring a sense of peace, love, understanding and gratitude then they are based in truth. If your thoughts, beliefs, words, or actions bring chaos, hate, misunderstanding and depression, anxiety or resentment, they are not based on the truth. Take time to consult with your heart and feel your thoughts, beliefs, words and actions toward yourself and to others. Your heart will never lie to you.

From the universal energy healing point of view, any state of being on any level that isn't peace, joy, harmony and/or love is due to an interruption in our energy bodies. The goal is to create a life/society/world that gives us the experience of our true identity - peace, joy, harmony and love through self inquire and thoughtful choices. We do this by consciously choosing thoughts, beliefs, words and/or actions that create peace, joy, harmony and love...
