The truth is the truth. Constant, consistent, it vibrates to the inner core of our being. We feel the truth. Like the straight arrow, the truth seeks its bullseye. It does not take a winding path to some ever shifting mark in the sand.
Truth has come into question of late. It eludes us. What is it? Where is it? Why should any one entity have the ultimate say in what the truth is, to mold the consensual reality as they see fit?
Sometimes there is no instant way to pinpoint the truth, but what we can do is be widely observant, noting the incongruities and idiosyncrasies, and listening to our intuitive voices along the way. We can feel a vibe in any situation, be it positive or negative, when we’re paying close attention. Logic and intuitive reasoning combined help us to know where to properly place our trust.
If you are not already doing so, it is time to listen to your inner truth. In rune stones, Teiwaz (the arrow symbol) represents the spiritual warrior. Spiritual warriors do not put blind faith in the consensual narrative. With patience and perseverance, they observe, analyze, and go inward to compile their own conclusion.
As Albert Einstein said, “Blind belief in authority is the greatest enemy of truth.” This is your call to start listening to your own inner voice and wisdom.
