I like the phrase “Truth Comes from Within”, I think it speaks a profound truth that you have the ability to recognize Truth within your Heart. That’s that point of infinity, between you and between everyone else’s infinity. That space, the phi ratio between your infinite within and your infinite with-out… well, that’s a whole ‘nother blog on its own.
But let’s think about this a little bit deeper too. Don’t mind the gamer-talk, It is relevant, just go with it… you know you want to 🙂
I recently beat Zelda: Skyward Sword and moved on to my next game, Final Fantasy XIII. I don’t know if you remember this old blog where I expressed my enthusiasm for our new friend Marie moving in, who brought with her a bajillion and a half Xbox games… Well, i’m slowly beginning my plow through them to get caught up on what I’ve been reading have been some of the most remarkable and popular games of the past 5 years.
On the back of the box art for Final Fantasy XIII, it says this…
“The fight within begins”
Now, this strikes me as odd because as i’ve been playing the game, i’m not seeing a large amount of internal dialogue and dilemma, and yet there is a large amount of drama between the characters in the game and all of their personal agreements, disagreements, ideas, and what have you.
But upon recognizing perhaps what this means is not that each character has to have their own internal struggle (which of course they do), but they also altogether have a struggle between what they are trying to accomplish as a team.
Perhaps “within” doesn’t necessarily have to mean ONLY inside yourself, but it is an invitation to see that you exist “Within” a family, “within” a society, “Within a network of people online”. The truth exists “within” any particular group, and sometimes it takes some effort and energy to recognize it for what it is.
See, I’ve read all kinds of new-age stuff that “You have to find out what’s right for you personally”, I get that, I really do. For a long time I had my personal truths and I held onto them because I didn’t have anything else.
What happens though, is that as you grow and begin to open up to new ideas, expanding your awareness beyond what was right in front of your nose, You began to realize that what was true for you personally is not necessarily true for everyone.
In fact, if you became aware that that “personal truth” is not in service to the greater good of mankind, and was actually taking away from others so that you can have your own personal thing… It ceased to be a truth, and your actions change.
I think that if we can become aware of each other on a grand accord, our “Personal Truths” will become our “Collective Truths”. There will be no need for “Personal Truths” anymore, because there will be no need for secrets with each other. Everyone can just be, without the fear of anyone using any information against each other….because there’s no need for it. Everyone simply understands, and can do whatever they really want to.
It’s a dream… yeah… But i’ve seen dreams come true before… and i’ll see to it that this one does too, in this lifetime, or the next.
We are One,
