“In matters of truth and justice, there is no difference between large and small problems, for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same.”
As a Druid, truth is essential for me, in all my interactions, but it is also necessary for truth to be coupled with compassion. Absolute truth is a way to raise our own vibration, which is essential for our personal and spiritual development, but it is also essential for the Universe to, in order to advance us spiritually as a species. “Modern science has concluded that everything that exists in the universe is made of vibration” Hiroshi Doi-sensei…”
The need for compassion in truth is part of this as by emitting positive energy we raise our own vibrations but also the vibrations of those we interract with. There is no benefit in telling the truth but at the same time destroying someone’s hopes, self esteem, happiness etc. So while it is still important to hold to your truth, it must also be done in a way that does not emit negative energy towards someone else and ultimately out into the Universe.
The only way we can raise the vibrations of humanity so we can live in a more peaceful, spiritually aware society is to start with ourselves. To do this we need to be mindful of many things:
- Be mindful of your thoughts – it is not only our words and actions that affect our vibration, but also our thoughts.
- Think before you speak – speaking your truth in a compassionate way will help to raise the vibrations of those you deal with too.
- Spend time in meditation – and also spend time in nature.
- Spend time with likeminded people – those with higher vibrations also help us to raise our own.
So remember, while truth is essential, always with compassion!
In the words of Usui-sensei
“For today only…
Do not be angry
Do not be anxious
Work hard and be kind to others…”
