Depends On The Angle
The hub I wrote talking about Truth makes you free...wasn't about nothing else but the truth. There aren't many kinds of way to say the truth since it is just as a test of true and false....one thing or the other. A pure heart that seeks God will say the truth always just as written in James 5:12.
The purpose may change the truth; depends on the angle? An example of this would be when Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the desert. Read about this in Luke 4. As we see...depends on the angle...the purpose...not the "truth".
The video below will present what it is written in Luke 4 and you will be able to see what I mean.
Not about the truth, but the angle
Let's keep this hub with the analysis of "depends on the angle". Since the truth will depend on the purpose which leads reflecting in the concept: Humility, which it is the quality or condition of being humble; modest opinion or estimate of one's own importance, rank, etc.
I love to use what others have said like a legacy of life wisdom. Finding in other's refection helps to reflect in this world of struggle where other's living many times makes easy ours.Because humility is such a deep concept and depends on the angle; I found some interesting quotes which I will refer:
Charles de Montesquieu " To become truly great, one has to stand with people not above them."
Monica Baldwin "What makes humility so desirable is the marvelous thing it does to us; it creates in us a capacity for the closest possible intimacy with God."
Isaac Newton "If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon shoulders of giants".
Words are silent
Many other concepts will bring controversy. That is fine, it is ok to be different. Diversity is upon us...we have joined with others by the technology...but still we will see things depending on the angle. We will understand by our values. We will feel by our past experiences. We will react by emotions that has grown in us even without knowing or having the skill, time or opportunity to change things.
But we need real, true humility...because we need to have peace.
I have read or written and not necessarily the meaning, the purpose, the tone was the real one. If writing would come as in Harry Potter we could than have a justified reaction.
As the refraction from a prism
Nature talks to us...who has ears hear...and who has wisdom will understand. It depends on the angle just as the refraction from a prism.
Gary ZuKav, quoted the words below which I do not follow all his beliefs; since it depends on the angle and nature shows us to ..."examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good;" (Thessalonians 5:1)
Reality is what we take to be true.
What we take to be true is what we believe.
What we believe is based upon our perceptions.
What we perceive depends upon what we look for.
What we look for depends upon what we think.
What we think depends upon what we perceive.
What we perceive determines what we believe.
What we believe determines what we take to be true.
What we take to be true is our reality.
Blessings to all!!
