You could say that a truth is ‘universal’ if it is irrefutably valid and logical, so a universal truth is impossible to deny, and it is the same for everyone. For example, everything we do starts with a single thought.
Some of us may live our lives in denial about what are the universal truths. Perhaps we’re in denial because it’s easier; or perhaps we’re aware the truth may open wounds that are easier left unopened. Perhaps it’s not you, perhaps it’s someone else who is denying the truth, because they know that what they’re doing is something the universe won’t agree to.
But whatever our reasons for ignoring the truth, it can never bring the right choices, or the right outcomes. When anyone ignores the universal truth, not only can it hurt them, it can also change the family dynamics as that person continues to gloss over it. And as hard as it is to be honest and upfront, what we tell others is important, because it not only shapes us as individuals, our lives and our children’s lives, it’s also a conversation with the universe.
I am aware that without my writing, I would be no nearer to understanding my truth, or my disabilities. I certainly wouldn’t have gone down the ‘knowing what I have’ route.
But if like me, you believe in the universe, and the universal truths and you believe life turns out the way it is meant to, it would always have taken me this long to get to everything I’ve had to deal with and achieve. Put simply, my experiences to the point of diagnosis of cerebral palsy at forty-six, and my autism diagnosis at fifty-six, were my experiences to have.
For us to continue to encourage positive thinking, self-confidence and a positive outlook, it is important to bring universal truths into the equation around our experiences and find an acceptance on those.
No matter how long it takes to accept our truth, the universal truth always prevails and acts and just because we are in denial or ignore it, that doesn’t mean the universe has its blinkers on. The universe knows our truth and it is not something we can avoid. Things have a way of coming back to us, everyone is accountable.
