In my work, as well as the works of other teachers of similar teachings, I often refer to “The Truth.” I reference the Truth of God, the Truth of the situation and even call my article section on my website “Truth Testimony.” Increasing I am asked “What does it mean to say ‘The Truth?’”
The Truth means the Truth of God. It refers to God’s promises to us and the reality through God rather than seeming appearances of the ego world. In the Bible, Jesus showed this Truth of God through many acts of faith such as raising Lazarus from the dead despite having been deceased for many days. Regardless of the human perception of death, Jesus rose himself again after three days. He cured the sick, raised the dead, controlled the elements, created feast from famine, as well as displaying many other miracles. Because he knew the Truth of God, he was able to affirm it and manifest it into corporeal form.
Following suit, many teachers have been able to perform similar miracles. Teachers such as Paramahansa Yogananda, Smith Wigglesworth, Emma Curtis Hopkins, The Fillmores (Founders of the Unity movement), Mary Baker Eddy, as well of hundreds, if not thousands, of other Spiritual Masters, have been able to know the Truth so deeply that they were able to perform acts referred to in the Bible such as raising the dead and healing the sick. Thousands of faith healers have had the faith and knowing of God so completely that they see the Truth of God in all things, therefore, relinquishing the appearance of lack in all situations. Whether there is an appearance of lack in health, life, prosperity or abundance when the Truth is seen and proclaimed the appearance of lack must dissipate.
“He who believes in me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater than these he will do.” John 14:12
Promises of God
Through God, we have the promise of love, health, abundance, eternal life, prosperity, and infinite miracles. This may seem contradictory when we are facing the appearance of lack in any of these fields, but the appearance of lack is not the Truth, it is simply the manifestation based on our perception. As beings, we have a consciousness and a collective (un)conscious. Our consciousness is what we have been told, our programming and what we believe, and our collective unconscious are the ideas and beliefs we hold as a collective. In spirituality this often becomes an “us” and “them” mentality rather than seeing our part in the collective unconscious. Instead of seeing racism as a form of separation we all believe and invest in, we tend to blame the ignorance or intolerance of others, which in this world is true, but has a deeper root cause. If we all felt connected to God, we would not see, feel, or experience racism. However, we too have invested in all collective conscious or unconscious beliefs by investing in our belief of separation from God. When we realize and know that there is no separation, we can begin to create from our wholeness and Divinity, rather than investing in the ego collective further. Knowing God’s promises means being able to manifest them regardless of the seeming appearances as well as the beliefs of the collective. The lies of ego cannot exist in the appearance of the Truth of God. If we so chose, and have faith in the promises of God, we will see the results in our lives and the lives of others.
“I Want to Share My Truth”
Some mistakenly think “the Truth” refers to the spiritual act of sharing our truth, or opinion, but that is not the case. When we say “I need to share my truth” what this means is that we have an ego or trigger somewhere that we want to validate. Our truth is a human perception rather than a spiritual Truth, which is an authentic Truth. Needing to share our truth is not alwats the Truth of God. Sometimes it is just ego in disguise. The Truth is we are spiritual beings with human problems so rather than sharing our truth, which only perpetuates ego, we would proclaim the Truth of God:
“Lord, I’m feeling separate from you in this moment. But I know that I am your image and reflection and that I am Whole and complete in you always. I surrender my feelings of separation, for they are a lie. There are no victims in God. I am a victor in God, now and always.”
Our “truth” is irrelevant. It is simply an opinion or reaction that is birthed in a human consciousness. Authentic Truth must come from an authentic source, which means all authenticity can only come from God and the Truth of God.
Where does the Truth apply?
The Truth applies to all things, all situations, and all circumstances. Whether you are sick on your deathbed, have lost a limb, are afflicted with blindness, deafness or other physical ailment. The Truth is there in the face of depression, addiction, and mental illness. It triumphs through poverty and worldly circumstances. The Truth shines through relationship struggles and hardships. God has no limitation, nor does his word, his power or his ability. The Truth can be applied anywhere you see an appearance of lack. If you see the appearance of a lack in health, wealth, love, success, spiritual connection, or abundance in any form, the words of Truth will change the conditions and supersede all obstacles.
I heard a story about a man who told a faith healer who raised people from the dead that his wife could not be risen because she has been embalmed. I recently spoke to a woman who believed God could not cure her because her disease was genetic. Our human perception is limited therefore we project that limitation onto God. However, God is an infinite, limitless source. The only restrictions God has are the ones we create as barriers to His abundance and prosperity. If we do not have the faith that God can heal our circumstances then it is not God who is limited, but our perception. By shifting our perception and knowing God’s power to do, create and “heal” all things, we allow that power to manifest in our lives. Know the power of God and be receptive to it in all seemingly impossible circumstances. When you hold the Truth, it will manifest.
What Must One Do to Manifest the Truth
Being able to manifest the Truth requires three main keys:
Know the Truth
Know the Truth
You must know the Truth within your soul. It is far beyond just “Knowing” it mentally. You must know the Truth of God and be unwavering in your knowing. Often we say we know, but knowing mentally is far different than knowing it within. We may know in our minds, but until we know in our hearts, we are still only knowing in human form. The Truth goes beyond the human reality. To truly practice it you must know on a spiritual level.
Having faith is a constant act that means even in the most impossible of situations we have faith that God will deliver us. Often, we only have faith to the extent that is believable to us. We may believe that God can put a band-aid on our problems but not cure them completely. We may believe that God will help others but not us. We may also believe that God is only capable of limited goodness. A friend told me once of a client who refused to surrender to God. When my friend asked why, the woman stated, “What if I surrender and do not like what God gives me?” God can only apply his goodness as much as we will be receptive to it. Therefore, having complete faith in God and surrendering our will (ego’s will) is crucial. The more faith we have, the more miracles we open ourselves to and the more divinely planned we allow our lives to become.
Faith takes practice. The scale of faith which is required to hold the Truth is far beyond what we are accustomed. The more we practice our faith, the more we are able to trust it without doubt or fear. When we practice our faith and consistently see God show up for us, we gain unwavering trust which builds upon itself. Committing to a life of Truth means committing to the Truth of God in all things. It must be applied to all facets of our consciousness, which, at times, may prove to be challenging. The beauty of the Truth is that once it is planted, it begins to spread through our consciousness and unravel more Truth. Through the Truth, we gain unlimited possibilities to expand ourselves and manifest the Truth in the world for our Brothers and Sisters.
