|FROM WHOSE PERSPECTIVE
|ARE WE SHOOTING
IN THE DARK?
you ever tried to line two fence posts in a straight line? No matter
where you put that second post it will always line up perfectly with
the first one.
A 'guide' post, or a third proven point, is always needed to obtain an accurate and straight fence line for the other posts.
We all see 'truth' from our
own perspective, but is it actually truth we see, or merely our own conception
of truth. Not one of us holds the rights to truth - not you, not them,
and certainly not me. Then who does hold the 'rights' to absolute truth? In
addition, if we do not have this right, then why do we kill, wage war, and bear
false witness, to our various comprehensions of 'truth'?
Now, consider the image on the right, to which an additional element has been added to the scenario. As we can see, all six perspectives were merely casting their beams into the darkness. Oh sure, they may be picking up partial truths, and then reflecting back enough light for dousing up a good story, but still not capturing the entire and exact facet of truth. On the other hand, if we were to have all the facts, even if this knowledge does not match what old traditional wisdom has told us for centuries, we would all receive the answers we seek. Natural instinct, common sense, and logic would go far to serve us a large portion of pure truth. We would know for certain there was only one direction in which truth can be found - all others would have no place in the definition of genuineness – nor would they belong in the basis of what is right and what does not belong. What a grave travesty of humanity to base wars, hate, anger, brutality, and other immature behavior, on anything so nonsensical as religions, petrified traditions and rituals, corrupted knowledge, adulterated science, partial historical accounts, and bias determinations on 'truths' that cannot be proved nor accepted by all humankind. Still, this is what mankind has done for millennia, with not even a glimmer of correction in sight. Which generation, in our tree of lineage, will begin to release the falsehoods that have led humanity down pathways of destruction and corruption? Are we so inbred, over time and acceptance, to the status quo, that we cannot seek out that one true guide post that will give us perfect alignment to the truth of our origins?
