  1. Very true that God is accessible to all. No person’s personal faith in God can be more valid than somebody else’s, duh haha. All religions can contain God, duh. Truth can be found everywhere, duh. Haha.

    I also know two minds are better than one. A lot of the time we mean the same thing behind different articulations that might seem totally contrary. And we have a lot of unexpected to offer each other. People should gently discuss truth. Isn’t that itself ‘truth’? Like isn’t it ‘true’ that what is true deserves to be discussed and discovered if true? So where better to find truth than with those willing to discuss it?

    Truth is that nourishment, that peace we’re looking for. Like my mom always said home cooked meals are often the most nourishing. At home we feel the most safe and rest. Truth is the home we all want to return to. A place we can re-energize. And function. But nourishment isn’t just found at home. We need to go out. We seek truth outside of our base. We trade with other people, and gather resources from them. We find resources from the sky, something from the heavens. We find resources from the Earth that’s already been here and grew, was refined and cared for by people, and take from its produce.

    But it’s all from the same ecosystem. Where we feel magnetized to a purpose and feel alive, as ecosystems all have a central momentum that pushes its cycles of life. Whether at home or outdoors, with ourselves or with others, truth is about finding that ecosystem of nourishment and peace. That’s how you know you’re there.
