Things happen, and they can be verified, even recorded. People can choose to accept that something has happened, or they can ignore it and say nothing happened, or that something else happened. Someone might report that an event happened, or they might tweet it, put photos up about it or share it in other ways. They will do this from their own personal perspective. This is expected human behaviour.
Other people might agree with what is expressed as it matches their personal preferences and prejudices (preferences if you like the person and their opinions, prejudices if you don’t). Again, this is expected human behaviour.
Yet other people might just make stuff up, and their supporters will agree with it (wow, human behaviour), and other people will wonder what the heck is going on, as making stuff up is weird and extreme behaviour.
Where is truth in all of this? Where is spirituality?
It depends on what you think truth is and what you think spirituality is. All of this is relative and depends on what you believe.
It is possible to check out a person’s interpretation of events, or of fabricated events (fake news). It is also possible to check out a person’s opinion and their interpretation of events and news from our own point of view. We all have a personal truth, that we usually need to stick with.
I found that meditation and using energy techniques to clear the energy in my body, in my chakras or centres, and in my aura has had an impact on my ability to get a sense of the qualities of a person’s or a group’s interpretation of an event, and of information that they give out.
The use of meditation opened my third eye or at least made me aware of it, and helped me to clean it up. This helped me to use my third eye to perceive information and analyse it along with the information from my other chakras or centres. I wouldn’t say it was perfect, and there were limitations.
Firstly, chakras could be made ultra clean, but in everyday day life with all kinds of energy around that isn’t always possible. A person just has to do their best. Secondly, we can (usually) only see or sense what we know to look for. So the more experience we have, and the more good quality spiritual education we have, the more we can sense. What we know is also shaped by what I would call my preferences which someone else would call my prejudices, my pre-judging. (In fact, bravely and honestly looking at one’s own preferences to check just how true they are can be a good thing to do).
Thirdly, we don’t tend to have the full picture of an event. We don’t know the historic run up to an event, we don’t know the full past lives and karma of people concerned or how far back the timeline of energy goes. We might be able to sense the intuitive rightness or wrongness of an event though in the present. We won’t know the short-term or long-term future consequences of an event, or anything about the future timeline of the energy linked in with the event. Nor will we sense what might be happening simultaneously on the astral and mental levels. Fourthly, some people work with guides. Guides can be on different planes and have different amounts of experience. Higher plane guides will have better energy and should be better at making interpretations of what is going on, though they can, and do, make mistakes (which might be a surprise to some). The newer, divine guides coming down are something else entirely. Guides won’t necessarily give us all the information, but give us what we need to know from their perspective. Also, we often don’t interpret what is given us with total accuracy.
There is a lot of information we are not usually getting.
Still, we can gauge the rightness or wrongness of an event, or of the news, and of a person’s opinion or interpretation of news and of events, as long as we are in the right space.
If we react angrily to something we go right down the planes of consciousness where we might feel self-righteous but we won’t be right. It’s necessary to be calm, let go, and be detached as much as possible. Some people are able to reach a point of forgiveness, which is the ideal.
If your heart is open, then love can flow, and the truth can be touched.
In spirituality there is a concept of a Higher Power, of a Higher Self, and of the Divine, of God. To touch them, an open heart is necessary. When you are in touch with your Higher Self, or a Higher Power, or the Divine or God you will feel peace, calm, stillness and silence. In this space, it is easy to have a sense of truth and be able to determine the level of truth or the degree of twist in something, and the degree of goodness or the level of wrongness. You just offer up the event, or the news, or the interpretation of the news, or a person’s opinion. Let go and offer it up, and ask what is it all about, or how good it is. Then in peace, let yourself receive an answer. Then, you can know in your heart, what is right, and what subtleties are involved in a situation.
