Woke up this morning pondering the nature of truth. Yep. It's truly the kind of stuff I think about. C'mon, you know you do, too. It's just human to wonder about these things.
Many years ago I attended a profound personal development workshop. Posted prominently on the front wall was a large sign pretty much screaming: TELL YOUR TRUTH.
Being writerly inclined, I silently pondered: Shouldn't that be TELL THE TRUTH? (This may also have been a way of keeping myself distracted from the provocative content of the workshop ... avoiding my truth, perhaps? Hm.)
Nevertheless, I posed the question to the workshop leader, and she lobbed back "There is no absolute truth, only your truth."
More pondering ensued.
Let me again present the notion here: There is no absolute truth. There is a whole bunch of stuff we choose to believe, and a whole bunch of stuff we all agree to as a kind of consensus reality, but there is no way we can claim the absolute truth. As much as we'd like to.
Absolute truth would be very comforting.
Instead we dance with uncertainty, play in possibility, and navigate what feels true to us. Fortunately, this territory is pretty familiar to most multipreneurs. It is not always so comfortable for our support networks, though.
Spouses, business allies and well-meaning friends very often question the multipreneur's instincts. Their intent is to comfort, bless them.
Multipreneurs develop and hone a very finely tuned inner guidance system, one that we can rely on to point us toward right actions. It is easy to allow the opinions and advice of others to create static in the system, and to influence our choices.
Okay, well, do - if it is mindful. Take the advice only if you've thought through the choices, weighed the opinions and tuned in to your inner voice for confirmation.
Trust me. It's the truth.
In what ways do you trust your inner voice? Where are you doubting?
