I’ve often heard people say “Nobody has the answers”, along with such popular lines as “There are no answers” and even more famous “All of the answers are within”. It’s a little cryptic for sure, and I think we need to go deeper into what those things mean to make sense of them.
I think when we’re talking about answers, we gotta ask “…to what question?”
If you’re speaking in this mystical magical way of: “Nobody can tell you what’s true except what’s in your heart”, I both agree and disagree. It’s true, you have to verify that something is true in your heart, but assuming that you can’t hear truth from someone else ends up blocking out the opportunity to share a truth with someone.

…Get ready for a doozy.
(but if you can make it all the way through, you totally win!)
After looking at some of the past few blogs i’ve written, I feel like i’m on a sort of a streak of sharing my perspective about some of the teachings in the spiritual communities. An objective view, for sure… I haven’t seen many people speaking like I am, save for the people I live with. Maybe we’re just crazy, I’m open to that possibility
Speaking of spiritual teachings, here’s one that always drives me bonkers!! “Find out what your own personal truth is for you!” Aghh, that one always drives me bonkers.
Truth is Truth. It’s True regardless of if you want it to be or not. I think Ghandi said it best here…
“Even if you’re a minority of One… Truth is Truth.”
