I’m reading one of those books that’s absolutely mind-blowing.
Like, I’ve had to reread passages several times to really comprehend and digest what’s being said.
The book is called "Falling Into Grace" by Adyashanti and I’m pretty sure that it’s going to change my life (it already might have).
I’m only a few chapters in, but it’s perfectly aligning with this week’s word, Truth.
Something I’ve noticed a lot recently is that I’ve allowed “non-truths” to slip into my consciousness, take root and present themselves as reality.
And then, I begin to believe this reality.
And make decisions based upon it.
Of this, Adyashanti says:
When we believe what we think, when we take our thinking to be reality, we will suffer. It’s not obvious until you look at it, but when we believe our thoughts, in that instant, we begin to live in the world of dreams, where the mind conceptualizes an entire world that doesn’t actually exist anywhere but in the mind itself. At that moment, we begin to experience a sense of isolation, where we no longer feel connected to each other in a very rich and human way, but we find ourselves receding more and more into the world of our minds, into the world of our own creation.
When we see the world through our thoughts, we stop experiencing life as it really is and others as they really are.
Are you willing to see that you may not be living from a standpoint of truth, from a standpoint of reality? This…means you’re willing to see truth, you’re willing to see that maybe things aren’t the way you thought.
There’s so, so much in these passages that I could read them 50 times over and still be awestruck in the deep truth.
So, this week, I’m going to focus on the real TRUTH that’s within my thoughts. Not the thoughts that I’ve convinced myself are truth. Or even the thoughts that others want me to believe as true.
Join me this week and explore the genuine truth and reality within your life.
