With Truth, there is no compromise. In other words, something is either true or false, there is no in between.
2 + 2 = 4 - True
2 + 2 = 4.01 - False
Another way to put it is: Truth is like a magnet that only picks up or attracts things that are magnetic and leaves the rest behind. In other words, Truth doesn't recognise that which is not Truth.
In the world we live in, there are experiences that appear to be true and even real but in the eyes of Truth, they do not exist. Here's one example I witnessed during my bus journey.
At one bus stop, there was a woman in a wheelchair. The driver let down the ramp for the passenger to get on board.
At one level, it would appear that Love is meeting the woman's needs in the form of the technology that now enables passengers in wheelchairs to get on and off buses very easily.
From the perspective of Truth, the woman's experience is not only an illusion, it is not happening.
Because Truth only knows and recognises wholeness and perfection. Truth knows that all are inherently whole and perfect in every moment. Therefore,
Someone who is whole and perfect cannot be disabled;
Where there is only perfection, there is no need for buses to have disability ramps.
Try telling someone in a wheelchair that their experience is not real and it's an illusion and they'll accuse you of being uncaring.
I've shared lots of times about when I was a child and was run over by a car, my Inner Voice told me that the accident wasn't real and I was dreaming. At the time, what my Inner Voice was telling me didn't make any sense at all. How can the accident not be real when I had been hit by a car and was lying on the road and in pain? It was only years later that the message I'd received made sense. I realised my Inner Voice, which only knows Truth, was speaking the Truth as She sees it. What She was actually saying was where there is only Perfection, accidents cannot happen, therefore, the accident is not real and never happened.
Makes you wonder whether God is a mathematician, doesn't it? I've never liked maths!
How does one apply Truth principles to every day life?
By embracing Truth principles and believing in them so they become real in your experience.
Back to my experience as a child, I believe if I had accepted as true what my Inner Voice had told me, that the accident wasn't real, I would have got up and I would have been perfect; or the "accident scene" would have been erased and I would have found myself on the other side of the road unscathed. As I wasn't able to embrace the Truth at that moment, my needs were met through the human belief in medicine, hospitals, doctors and nurses though the way events unfolded for me was pretty remarkable.
Love is all there is.
If it's not Love, it's an illusion and it's not real.
If it's not Love, it didn't happen or doesn't exist.
Following Truth principles is not for the faint of heart. Reminds me of a friend who used to say, "Waking up is not for sissies." ;-)
God is not only a Mathematician, God is Maths.
I'm finally learning to appreciate Applied Mathematics in every day life.
