The Truth About Life
“The obvious is that which is never seen until someone expresses it simply.” ~Khalil Gibran
The Truth of life does not change anything in life except people’s minds. Things stay the same. The Truth just removes the unnecessary suffering, conflict and confusion from life. The truth about life is actually very simple; it is just hard to see for the first time.
Life: It all boils down to how you feel from moment to moment, how often you feel good and how often you feel bad, and it will be balanced like everything else physical. Your infinite past was balanced, and your infinite future will be too, unless you change from a physical being into a spiritual being. To change into a spiritual being, you just have to know the truth, which changes your point of view and your perspective of life so that you start to live your life as a spiritual being.
Our life does not have to be just fifty-fifty like the physical world, because our spiritual-self, our immortal-self, is not physical and does not need to be balanced to exist. Our physical environment cannot fundamentally change, but we can. You just have to know it to do it.
Nothing is going to make any real difference in your life except separating yourself from the balanced physical world. It can and will change everything. The truth reveals that you do not need to experience the bad to have the good. The bad will still happen, but you will perceive it differently.
Good/bad: When you know the Truth, you take the two sides of life, the good and bad side, and see them as one whole. You do this by understanding what the balancing force means. It means all bad times will pass and be compensated for by an equal amount of good times. It also means all good times will pass and be paid for with an equal amount of bad times. It will always balance. Always.
When you know the truth, you will enjoy the good times more and still avoid a bad time when you can, but when you cannot, the knowledge of the balance helps you get through the bad times. This is because knowing that the worse it gets, the better it will be, makes bad times almost enjoyable. More importantly, it centers your perspective of life. You see both sides of life; whole life, true life.
You do not get just 50/50; you get 100%.
The knowledge of the balance takes away your reasons to be mad, sad, hate, worry, envy, be disappointed; it takes away all negative emotions and feelings. It removes all stress and negative mind-made feelings from your life. The mind starts disappearing, and true life starts appearing.
As the mind gets smaller, life gets bigger. As the mind shrinks, life expands. When the mind disappears completely, your perception of life becomes clear. Eventually, you will only think when you have to, which is not very often. You will be able to accept the present of life, no matter what is happening. You change into a new being, a spiritual being, and you become the present, the eternal NOW.
