Why is it that when someone says, “I’ll try”, you get the feeling that they won’t? Is it because trying is lying or is it that they are just saying what you want to hear? Knowing the truth requires discerning what someone says and feeling their projected emotion behind it. If what they say conflicts with what you feel from what they say then you know they are ‘trying’ to convince you to ‘believe’ what they say and NOT know the truth.
When we truly feel joy from what someone says AFTER they say it, then we might believe what theyare saying is true. However, to know what they are saying is true or not requires listening to Divine guidance and following it over what you think and feel they have said.
Trust in the truth revealed by the Divine and no matter what anyone says or does you will know the truth. Too simple? The truth is always simple; it is only the ‘revealers’ of the truth that make it complicated. Trust, don’t believe. Tell the truth and never ‘try’.
Trying is an excuse you tell others to make them feel assured you will make the attempt when in fact you have no desire to follow through. When someone says they will do something, believe it if you want. When they say they will try, don’t believeit. Knowing the difference and listening to Divine guidance will make the truth readily apparent.
The truth never has to be disguised or couched in attractive accoutrements. It stands freely on its own. It is when humans decorate it with rituals and observances, pomp and circumstance that it becomes veiled in the window dressing of flagrant emotionalism. The Source of truth is the Spirit of God and it is always on point and completely accurate. It is NEVER colored with beliefs, religious connotations or philosophical debates. It cuts like a knife straight to the heart!
We all get caught up in emotional reactions; the trick is to NOT allow them to taint the revelation of the pure unadulterated truth. It is when we get distracted by the form and ignore the substance that we go awry. Staying on point means that we follow the inner guidance of the Divine more than our emotional take on reality. It means that we trust in the Divine completely by not being concerned about how things unfold. Stop trying and start living! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
