[Metaphysical Mind] on understanding simple truths.

Dear ULC,

Wanda Lawson guest-authored the following issue on the topic of understanding simple truths.

Wanda recently started a blog called Understanding Simple Truths that was the source of all the writings below. The title of this blog is very significant to me, as I am currently in the process of understanding many simple truths that have been right in front of my face for some time.

For example, I see now that everything we need to know arrives through experience rather than metaphysical philosophy or spiritual teachings. This is a simple truth.

Please find a link to her blog at the end of this ezine. We hope you find value in it!

"The absolute truth exists only in our hearts, our true selves."

"Karma is the energy you create by every action you perform."

Deep Thoughts

Watching the movie "The Shift" by Dr. Dyer, I had an epiphany. All the things that the New Age movement, again, I don't like that term because it is actually not New, are not all that necessary to perform.

It was not only the movie that caused this, it was an awareness I was in the process of obtaining before that.

What I used to do, no longer applies. All the rituals, the "preaching", the intensity, the obscure actions that make others think you are "crazy"...lol, the trying to change others with your words, the desire to get your point across, and what not.....there are NO secrets to life and how to live it.

I have always thought that life should not be complicated and we do that to ourselves. It should be simple. Of course it doesn't always appear to be that way because of others choices that affect our lives, but what counts is how we react to those choices.

I learned that the simplest form of being is in the Hua Hu Ching, written by Lao Tzu. It's the unknown teachings of Lao Tzu.

Number 51 says, "Those who want to know the truth of the universe should practice the four cardinal virtues.

1. Reverence for all of life
This manifests as unconditional love and respect for oneself and all other beings.

2. Natural sincerity
This manifests as honesty, simplicity and faithfulness.

3. Gentleness
This manifests as kindness, consideration for others and sensitivity to spiritual truth.

4. Supportiveness
This manifests as service to others without expectation of reward."

So, my thoughts on this is if you follow the 4 virtues, all else will fall into place. I will say again, there are NO SECRETS. You can find basically the same thing in the Bible. I just so happen to resonate with older teachings than that, just my preference.

For myself, as I have mentioned before, not everything is a one size fits all. Adapting a positive healthy lifestyle can have different paths for different personalities. We should all respect that and support one another in our individual efforts to accomplish this...in the NOW.

My heart goes out to those that struggle on a daily basis with their health and life. Maybe we can touch some one's life in a way that will take that stress away, that is our purpose....to love, unconditionally because we came here as ONE.....a part of one another.

Love yourself,

Don't be a doormat for anyone.

Stand [up] for yourself Be at peace within so you can share that peace with others.

Share with your actions Simply be who you were meant to be.

Develop a undivisional relationship with your True Self



For as long as I can remember, I have been on a lifelong quest for life's answers.

I found comfort in searching for truth. Now, my seeking has come to an end. Not because I feel as if I know everything, but because I now realize that all those answers are within each one of us.

Does that mean that I will stop reading and researching? No it does not. I will still feed my body, mind, and soul with positive books, articles, blogs, and the like. I will serve my purpose as a teacher.

As they say, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. And I will always be a student of life, just in a different perspective than one who is constantly seeking.

When you are ready to stop seeking, you will begin to grow spiritually because you have found your true self and have become aware. You will no longer "wonder" the why's and how's of life.

Everything just is as it is. All of this will become a natural awareness that comforts you in the NOW.

Understanding this, becomes a simple truth.

This issue was compiled entirely by the writings of Wanda Lawson (Texas). Wanda is the published author of "Prisoner and Pain," available on Amazon in paperback or kindle.

We can make a difference by becoming aware of our true selves through Divine guidance. Once this takes place, we can share our experiences of life for consideration and touch many hearts along the way.
