As a spiritual teacher I try to see and explain the truth as I understand it. It is my truth, true to me, just as your truth is true and right for you. And that is perfect.
So often "truth" is forced upon us, and when it is the truth of others, their beliefs, their conditioning, their patterns of behaviour that they carry unconsciously over lifetimes, it can be infectious and also damaging. It can also be enlightening and inspirational. How we take it, if we take it, is our choice. What is important is to allow it to be a conduit to take us to our own truth through validation, considered acceptance, considered rejection, even ambivalence. From whoever and however, a truth is a path to enlightenment.
In its, essence truth is about being ourselves and not what others expect us to be. It is about being true to ourselves and not fearing expressing our truth. It is about allowing ourselves to be individual, free to be ourselves at every level of our being, - and it can be very hard to resist the competing demands of family, society and culture for conformity with the norm to reach this state of being.
Any spiritual teacher who tries to impose his or her view on another is breaching the deepest spiritual laws, just as, at a different level and with a different intent a mother who tries to make her child into her ideal of being is creating karma too.
As I work in my chosen service my hope is that it will help others to come to their truth, to their liberation to be and to live in the way that is perfect for them; most importantly, that, without expectation nor coercion, nor bidding from others it will enable them to feels the hand of God upon them and to know it is what they have earned over many, many lifetimes.
The truth lies within, it cannot be imposed by others however qualified they may claim to be, though it can be brought to life with the help of others. That is my truth, the truth of this spiritual teacher.
