Depends On The Angle

Updated on December 26, 2014

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 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.

Our reality


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!!

      Mr. Happy again I will say thanks and give you my appreciation for such deep comments. The answer to the questions you wrote as many others have (including myself) is simple: When people get to experience the difference between religion and Christianity. As the Sioux say I will also bless you with The Great Spirit (Wakan Tanka) presences.

      From the angle of this White Wolf, the Bible is a good book. There are two copies right behind me in the bookshelf (I keep a copy in Romanian and one in English) and I have read it. I like(d) it. From theory to practice though, is a world of "in-between". Thus, with no disrespect towards the religion I must say that its implementation through the institutions which promote it and the "leaders" (such as the Pope) who give it a voice, it has all been a bit of a failed experiment.

      After two thousand years, are we better-off with how our societies have been controlled through institutionalized relgions (be it Christianity, Islam, etc)? I would say we are not. My ancestors had much to endure from the Roman invasion of the land where we lived. The same can be said of the Native American people here: the genocide they had to endure, was because the 'wise" European white man, decided that they needed to find God. Children were taken from families and sent to boarding schools, where their identity was supposed to be washed-away.

      How is it that from a teaching of love comes so much hatred towards all that are different and how come there have been so many wars started in the name of some religion or other? How can people keep killing each other in the name of some God or other?

      I am not religious for many reasons. I do respect the teachings but in practice, it has been a failure in my opinion.

      "Nature talks to us" - I like that line. I suppose that is why I would be labeled a pagan. I honor Mother Earth and the Sky.

      Thank You for the conversation. May Wakan Tanka walk with You. All the best!

      You are so right in so many ways here; or does it "depend on the angle"?

      I think that many are just a bit hesitant to comment on this deep thinking hub because they aren't sure what angle to take.

      This was another great, thought provoking hub--keep 'em coming Lastheart.
