Present Moment Truth

In the present moment made up versions of truth cease to exist because there’s no need to create them and without making up truth, there’s no need to run away from what is actually true…

A made up version of truth isn’t truth, it’s simply something made up. It’s true in the sense that it’s your made up version of truth, but figuring out if the content of your story is true doesn’t mean it is. Because you are the creator of your version of truth and you believe it with all your heart means nothing; this false version directs your energy and how life is lived. The thing also to look at is how many versions of truth are made up. There’s the parents story, the childhood one, the teen and young adult story. There’s the boy meets girl story, the get married story. The work story, family story, and on and on. There are so many versions of truth made up and only one you, so which version is true? If you say all of them you should be able to sense why it’s so difficult to see the made up versions. There’s the true version in there somewhere, but that’s the only version not looked at. When that one is seen all the others will fall away.

So how would a person know which one of their versions of truth are made up? My experience has been I know which one is true when there isn’t a need to make one up. Truth arises it’s never made up, basically truth is what’s there in the present moment, minus your version. This is the value of using the body as an anchor for present moment living. The body doesn’t make up versions of truth, only the mind does, so when the body is used to be present, no made up version of truth is needed. This is beautiful in its simplicity. Grasp this and most made up versions of truth will cease to exist because the need to create them won’t arise, and without a made up version of truth there’s no need to run away from what’s true in the present moment…
