In the movie “A Few Good Men”, Jack Nicholson’s character had a vision of the truth that was very real for him; to defend his country and freedom at all costs. Learning the true meaning of truth this week has shown me how his truth was not truth at all, but a vision he had conceived to allow him to do his job without guilt.
Master Key 9 – 6 & 7 explains: 6. To think correctly, accurately, we must know the “Truth.” The truth then is the underlying principle in every business or social relation. It is a condition precedent to every right action. To know the truth, to be sure, to be confident, affords a satisfaction beside which no other is at all comparable; it is the only solid ground in a world of doubt, conflict and danger. 7. To know the Truth is to be in harmony with the Infinite and Omnipotent power (God). To know the truth, therefore, to connect yourself with a power which is irresistible and which will sweep away every kind of discord, inharmony, doubt or error of any kind, because the “Truth is mighty and will Prevail.”
It goes on to say that actions that are not in harmony with Truth will result in strife and tension and eventual failure.
So my take on this is that if I am living the Truth, my actions are in harmony with the Infinite Power, but if I am not living the Truth, then I am living a lie, my actions are self seeking, not in harmony. Sounds pretty simple, right? You might ask, ” how do I know I’m choosing the Truth, is it simply trial and error?”
The realization that the “I” within each of us is our spiritual connection with the Omnipotent Power and that we choose the thoughts the “I” receives is crucial to living the life of Truth. The affirmation ” I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy” will bring about harmonious conditions because it is in strict accordance with the truth. So when you hold this affirmation in your thoughts every form of error or discord must disappear.
I have been using this affirmation constantly this week. The difference I have noticed is my discernment of the truth has become much easier. If I ever have a doubt ” I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy”.
Have a great week everyone and thank you for being a positive part of my life.
