Writing today about a concept that surfaced when speaking with a dear friend of mine who’s weighted intellectually – I love entering into conversations with him because he has such a wide breadth of knowledge, in addition to many more years on this planet than me, which gives him a glorious mind-ocean to explore.
Well the other day we were talking about some angle of multi-dimensionality or other, and I was describing something about the impending shift in consciousness, and accordingly the impending “fall” of our society, whatever that will look like. And he was saying, “where are you getting your FACTS?” “What is it all based on?” “What is your reasoning?”
And while I greatly respect his inquiries into my philosophies at ANY time, this one really got me thinking in terms of the collective.
I think we all need to shed this tyrannical over-reliance on facts that we have been taught to emphasize above all else, and re-learn the art of reading vibration.
I explained to him that in my opinion, the hold of LOGIC and REASON and FACTS, while important in terms of premises and building larger ideologies (among other things), can be detrimental to the spirit, in that one does not come to utilize our natural system of discernment by vibration. As an example, the way that I personally distinguish truth from falsehood is not by relying solely on the mind. That is one way to do it of course, if you are into the tedium of tallying. But for me, truth is a much deeper thing; I feel it in the core of my being, like the ringing of a bell tower.
The truth, howsoever menial, will come into my system and “ping” against my inner world – the deeper the ring there, the truer the truth. If it bounces into my body and falls flat, or has no movement whatsoever, I know it is untrue. Some things come in and have less impact than a gnat landing on a banana, while some things come in like a tsunami of vibration. Most things are in between, but I can always tell by the depth of the vibration.
Regardless, I believe that the best way to determine if something is true or not is by FEELING, not necessarily by thinking.
One of my favorite metaphors to understanding intuition vs. mind energy goes like this. Mind energy – the chatter of thoughts from your ego – feels like swimmers splashing on the surface of the ocean. Da da da da da! High, fast, quick, and then easily replaced by the next thing that comes along. Intuition though feels like the sound of the ocean depths, like how whales sing – long, slow, deep – powerful in its vibration. It rings in your entire field. Truth is quite similar to that.
TRY IT !
• Go someplace you’re alone and become really still.
• Sit or stand up tall and take some deep breaths. Let everything become quiet.
• Bring to mind your dilemma or decision, then sample any tension that results.
• Then make your mind like a stage with you as the audience – empty and anticipating a show.
• Feel the blankness first, then call in the energy of Option/Situation A.
• Feel all of the feelings around what it does for you.
• Breathe into it, whether it’s icky or empowering, allow it to come up and just observe.
• When you feel complete, go back to the empty stage.
• Breathe a few times into the nothingness.
• Then call in the energy of Option/Situation B. Feeling it all fully, how does it change your state?
• Compare options. Which had the most resonant feel?
You can use that same idea to “feel” with your inner body. We all have a built in meter for truth, just not everyone knows they do. Useful in this age of “fake news” and fear mongering and information overwhelm, eh?
Last thing, I know this post has been oversimplified – cue debate about subjective vs. objective truth – but I believe there exists an objective truth and I think it’s detrimental to say there isn’t one, or that we can’t experience it from a subjective mind. I believe that these objective truths are perceptible, and that they show up in our daily experience, to the extent that we have Love in our lives. I believe, when this universal force comes to you, no matter how slightly, it generates a deep, abiding, resonant vibration, and that you can tune into this to stay on course if you are aware.
Because you ARE that vibration! Truth is Love is God is You.
