It is a fellow MKE blogger who gave me so much to think about that I made it into a post. MasterKeyAdam His Week 9 post
The definition of Truth.
“a fact or belief that is accepted as true,” <-those words shook me.
“the quality or state of being true.”
“that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality“
This is the comment I made on his blog when I first read it. My first reaction. The thought had me spinning.
I like the breakdown. That has quickly become a favorite phrase. I have put in my recording often.
The thing that stood out to me in your post was the definition of The Truth. “a fact or belief that is accepted as true,” this definition made me pause.
It is actually one I had not thought to look up. BUT “THAT IS ACCEPTED” which means anything we believe true can change and it is a “concept that is learned and accept by the majority” and the construction of our own personal worlds influenced, defined and created by our environments, the way we grew up, our exposure to outside influences and knowledge, education, the way we perceived the world within our” I am.” Our truth shapes and creates our inner worlds.
I know the last two years that I have had my “I am” shaken, shredded and destroyed. My idea of my identity and my struggle to find it again is the journey that brought me to MKE. Lots more to think about again.
Wow, thank you. Powerful realization. With that definition nothing is definite.
3 little words (That is Accepted)
“clearly stated or decided; not vague or doubtful.”
“clearly true or real; unambiguous.”
“(of a person) certain or sure about something.”
So this had me digging deeper, everything hinging on the word TRUTH and circling back to it. The definition of the words FACT & REALITY when I looked up the definition of Truth myself made me feel a little better about what I know as truth and don’t know.
“a thing that is indisputably the case”
“used in discussing the significance of something that is the case”
“a piece of information used as evidence or as part of a report or news article”
“the world or the state of things as they actually exist, as opposed to an idealistic or notional idea of them.”
“the state or quality of having existence or substance.”
It is three other words that back up a conclusion and make TRUTH immutable: FACT, REALITY, INDISPUTABLE
“unchanging over time or unable to be changed.”
My conclusion is we should question all absolute beliefs whether we mark them as truth or fact until they are indisputable holding true to the quailities of immutable knowledge.
An example that even time can create questions in accepted truth.
Even the great detective question the truth until all was ruled out.
After spending some time with the dictionary on words that I normally would never have questioned, I can say, I feel good, relieved and happy about this redefining of my own identity using the MKE as steps to rule out the impossible, create my own truth “vision” and live in happiness and joy. It is real as I rule out all other possibilities. I love it when something or someone makes me think.
Thank you, Mark Januszewski for this vehicle “The Master Keys Experience” method to take this fabulous journey of self-discovery. It is so much fun.
Thank you, ADAM for inspiring me to “think out” the little things/words I accept and did not think to question.
