Considering Truth

Another possibility is that “spiritual teachers” have a flexibility of consciousness that allows them to see things from many different perspectives and also to see different levels of truth that are true simultaneously. It is possible for two opposite things to both be true, either as complementary truths or as truths that operate on different levels of reality.

So it is possible to allow things to be just as they are and, at times, to also work to change or transform the world. These two perspectives complement each other.

Most of our problems arise when we hold on too tightly to one perspective or the other.

The real gift of any “spiritual teaching” is when it points us to the part of the truth that we are overlooking or ignoring.

Most often, this is the truth that you can allow everything to be just as it is.

But sometimes someone gets stuck in the view that everything is perfect, and they need to be pointed back to the possibility of changing the world for the better.

“Everything is perfect, and there is always room for improvement!”
