The Alternative: 365ideas4change Number 37

Truth1Love speaks the truth when the world is lying Perceiving the truth is one of the greatest gifts of Love. Reflecting this truth back into a world mired in untruth requires a depth of certainty rooted in Love.

Beliefs, perceptions, opinions and ideas become concrete facts with repetition. If enough people say something, or it is said often enough, it becomes a collective reality. Its veracity is unquestioned and unquestionable. Bigotry develops: things just “are”. Racism, the way the economy works, educational processes emerge as the only option, the given truth.

Love sees behind this collective unconscious masquerade. Challenging the cooperative lie, we speak the alternative. The enclave rejects us. In speaking the unpopular version of reality, we empower others. Discovering that there are others who see the world this way, people are able to agree, having been unable to be the first to speak. The greater the number that speaks out, the easier it becomes to join the growing truth movement. Snowballing, gathering speed, enhancing momentum, ever expanding, the truth powers across the barriers.

Love is the knowledge, the language and the mouth with which we articulate the truth.
