The universal truth

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.

  1. The truth will always come out and will be discovered eventually. I remember studying the saying, ‘The Truth Will Out’ in English Literature at school and apparently it comes from a play by William Shakespeare written about 500 years ago. So there is clearly nothing new about the principle that eventually the truth will prevail or hiding the truth for that matter.

    I can understand why people might withhold the full truth or be economical with all the facts, but being in denial is different and I agree we are only lying to ourselves when we are in denial and that does us no good at all.

    1. Thanks, yes I think so too. I also think it depends on the nature of the truth we’re looking for.

      If we’re holding the truth to protect our children or family, to some degree I would say that is acceptable, particularly if we might end up hurting that person needlessly, but if and when it comes to making a difference between children, then I would say it’s not acceptable.

      Life is hard enough. If that were the case, leaving problems between siblings because the truth is ignored, particularly when it comes to money, a Will and/or inheritance. That is a family’s biggest nightmare.

  2. “You’re only as sick as your secrets!” This is an AA saying I’ve heard and seems fitting in this post.

    My entire childhood was spent in denial. I long ago lost the ability to tell the difference between truth and fiction which made my life a living Hell. I’m the type of person who normally becomes a sociopath because they lose the ability to discern right from wrong!

    I think the only thing that really saved me was that I used to believe in superheroes and King Arthur where they lived by certain codes. The truth for me has been that I have been battling so many demons in my life, many that were not even my own.

    Now I have to learn the difference as to what ones are mine and what belongs to everyone else. I have to be able to take the blinders off to be able to look at all of myself, both good and bad! You can’t handle the truth, is the other expression that comes to mind, since there are so many people this applies to.

    People wonder how it is that the ones who proclaim to be saints are among the worst sinners. It’s because those who know the truth turn a blind eye and pretend it isn’t happening which any abused child can attest to.

    Parts of me wonder if the human race is worth saving, but when I look into my daughter’s eyes,I know it is! The universal truth is that we’re all only human!

    1. Thanks Randy. I hope you’re okay. Yes I believe anyone can handle the truth if they tell the truth.

      It’s only when we fail to tell the truth we have a hard time dealing with the truth. Whether we tell the truth or not, the universal truth will always prevail whether we choose to abide by the Universal Law’s rules.

  3. Yes, the truth will come out and always sets us free! Even if we’re hurting, we’ll have a sense of freedom. And from there I believe we can truly heal.

    1. Yes I also believe in that analogy. At the time though, it doesn’t always feel that way, but that when we look back and we have moved on, we often see how more free we feel.

      Things always have a way of working out, because the universe makes it so… as long as we abide by the universal rules.
