How can we know our true nature?
How can we know if what we are is lacking and separate or whole and one?
How can we actually, honestly, directly know?
Many people have had glimpses of peace and wholeness
and some even have a deep, direct sense of this truth -
but then what about those thoughts and feelings that seem to conflict
with the sensing of wholeness?
Should those thoughts and feelings that conflict be dismissed as ‘misinformation’?
Should we censor them and push them away as untrue?
Or should we investigate to make sure?
If we have a deep sense that wholeness is our reality and then the thought
“I am worthless” or “He/She shouldn’t have said or done that” comes and
our sense of Wholeness seems lost – would it be more helpful to dismiss
that conflicting information or to investigate further?
Inquiry is honest and open to all information.
We can’t know until we know.
And to know we must directly investigate again and again until we are honestly convinced.
The Heart of Truth seekers
Everything is brought closer.
Those who seek Truth
are not afraid to look.
Love casts out all fear.
Is the understanding of open investigation
separate from science and politics -
or does this understanding relate to all areas of life?
If interested, here is an article I recently wrote
which shares how this understanding of open,
honest investigation can help even in the area

It is all very simple. Instead of seeing things imagined, learn to see them as they are. When you can see everything as it is, you will also see yourself as you are. It is like cleansing a mirror. The same mirror that shows you the world as it is, will also show you your own face."
