After reading Power vs. Force, I started to think about the nature of Truth. Does Absolute Truth exist? My personal belief is that it does indeed exist. However, we tend to filter it with our beliefs. For example, I believe in the Truth of unlimited abundance. When I experience lack, I begin to examine my life to find out why that abundance is being impeded.
Then the article about the Hawaiian doctor was brought to my attention, not once, but twice. In short, he story is about a Hawaiian doctor working on the psychiatric ward for the criminally insane. He never saw the patients, just their charts. Everyday, while reading the charts he would say an affirmation. After a while, the patients were healed.
I began to wonder, if we are all applying our filter to have our experiences, how did those patients get affected by the doctor’s filter? Further, at my level of perception will I ever be able to understand this phenomenon? If not, how can I ever grasp it? My assumption is that it is possible for me to grasp. If I could grasp it, is that the Absolute Truth?
Hawkins suggests that if something calibrates at 1000 then it is Absolute Truth. However, is that the case because we have only experienced that level in our history or is it really the Absolute Truth? As you can tell, this book asked more questions than it answered. It opened up a new line of thinking and understanding for me. A whole new set of assumptions under which to answer the questions of life.
Mind bending, I know. What do you think? Can Truth be absolute? If so, how do we know? Is it an experience, a calibration, an effect? What is your perception of Truth today?
