The Inner Truth card is probably not what you think it is. It's not what you think or what you believe. It's not your version of events and it's not how you've been taught to believe “Life, the Universe and Everything” works. It's also not what you feel emotionally about whatever has just happened.
Our emotions can, in fact, cloud our perceptions of whatever has just happened. So can a lot of our beliefs. These constructs, doctrines and dogmas (religious or otherwise) that we've been taught can also give us a false perception of reality. They can harden us, giving us ideas about the way other people should behave. They can make us think it's our job to make them behave that way. Most of the time, we'd be wrong.
Inner Truth isn't what we think or believe or feel. It's about what we KNOW. Not intellectually or emotionally, but what we sense deep down on the inside, when both our minds and emotions are still. It's what we KNOW when we're willing to let go of our particular point of view. It's the thing we realize when we're willing to consider the other person's circumstances, to see things from their perspective.
All too often we find ourselves judging and blaming. We believe other people’s problems are the result of their own poor choices without stopping to consider that there may have been factors outside of their control or even what choices were available to them. We might well have made the same decisions in the same situation.
Inner Truth comes from that place of self-reflection. It comes from a place of gentleness. It comes when we are willing to quiet our emotional reactions and silence our perfectly reasonable arguments. It is in that quiet space where we find compassion and compassion is the basis for all true morality. Inner Truth is what we find when we listen to our heart of love.
