A website about the great trinity of Love, Wisdom, and Truth
When the greatest of all things, LOVE is combined with WISDOM, TRUTH is always the outcome. It is a truism that all of life can be based
LOVE + WISDOM = TRUTH
Let's say that you have a problem believing in God or the Tao, you might even consider yourself an Atheist, this is no problem, especially if you believe in Love, Love is the greatest thing known and unknown, it is the universal understanding of good, true love is absolutely unconditional and is ideally all-encompassing.
For the religious ones of you, God created all that is out of the love for all that is, just as love flows from the Tao freely, Love has no bad karmic repercussions, it, in fact, reverses bad karmic effects, it is immune to all negative emotions, it doesn't get jealous, it doesn't require anything from anybody, it simply IS.
Love is in fact "The Greatest Thing in the World", Henry Drummond thinks so and has written a short explanation stating such, he makes biblical references, but if you are not religious, they will make no difference.
There is universal importance for Love that transcends all religions and beliefs, it does not matter what your belief system is if you believe in true, unconditional love, and that is the basis of your belief system, all other considerations are inconsequential.
Love, Wisdom, and Truth?
Just like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, the peanut butter and jelly are Love and Wisdom and the bread is the truth that encompasses it all.
It is sad that love has been limited by conceptions of how it should be, stipulations and conditions have been placed upon it that has dumbed it down where Wisdom no longer can be a part of it.
Love should be always unconditional and always free to be everywhere with no stipulations.
Just like the light from the sun shines on all without a thought of leaving anyone out, it's brilliance plays no favorites, it's welcome warmth is available to all that encounter it.
This is how Love is, and Wisdom is proud to be a part of it.....And that is the Truth.
There cannot be a discussion about Love, Wisdom, and Truth without bringing duality into the mix by presenting the other half of this seemingly eternal team of Hate, Ignorance, and Lies,
they just seem to roll off of your tongue, these horrible 3 are the material side of existence as opposed to our "good guys" which are on the spiritual or divine side of the fence, these material based misfits hang out with the likes of Greed, Fear, and Lust,
it is kind of obvious that they are not virtues, but then again they are part of our dualistic existence and need to be accommodated for by allowing some small and I hope a very small percentage to seep through.
Our Free Will will determine how much.
Since we are bringing aspects of hermeticism into this discussion, it should be recognized that Love and Hate are on opposite sides of the spectrum, there are many positions between the two that can be realized as one or the other,
at best we can assume a position as an observer and try not to get involved to great extents, opinions among people travel back and forth on this scale greatly, tolerance is a great defense for this.
Just as Wisdom and Ignorance travel this type of scale also, tolerance is also an equalizer that allows different views to be observed while keeping you on the plus side.
Truth and Lies or fewer truths can be mostly matters of opinion and are the trickiest to deal with, tolerance again may save the day in these cases.
When you think of Wisdom, do you believe wise words are the truth? Do certain passages from your favorite scriptures leave you with an undeniable feeling of truth and Wisdom in them?
Wisdom is also a universal property of Truth and not the sole property of any particular religion.
When you see someone acting in a loving, compassionate way towards someone, do you believe them wise? If they were acting this way towards someone that you did not like, you may think them the fool,
but the truth is that love and compassion cannot be used in a bad way, especially if it is done as an unselfish act. Can you see the Wisdom in that?
You would think that there is a very limited discussion that can be had from Love, Wisdom, and Truth, but in fact, these three simple words could end all war and all world hunger,
when you look at every situation through the eyes of unconditional Love, nothing but good can result from it, if we were all endowed with great wisdom, the ignorance and stupidity would be a faint part of an insignificant history that would be taught in schools to remind us of our savage past,
and Truth would be the Light that would open all of our eyes to a reality that was always there but concealed by the ignorance of Hate which results from the stupidity of greed and falsehoods.
Our examples and actions are the greatest testimony in the power of these three simple words.
Love and Wisdom have often be compared to sex, the love aspect is represented by the woman and the wisdom aspect is represented by the man.
The compassionate nurturing of a mother are the basis of Love and the positive willful actions of a man are a product of Wisdom, the strength of wisdom and the heartfelt love are the two sides of the metaphorical coin of truth,
they both embrace a balance that must be maintained, the yin and yang of existence, and when the marriage of these two are formed, the most perfect example of their child truth can be presented for all to follow.
Competition, high aspirations, excess, pride, these all need to be balanced when it comes to Love, Wisdom, and Truth, they are based on and or the causes of material things,
they are the oil that doesn't mix well with our pure water, unfortunately, they are a part of all of our material existences, how about mixing a little cooperation and kindness with that competition,
those high aspirations don't always have to be personal, a little altruism mixes well with that, spread some of that excessiveness with others that could use it,
and it will help you in the process, and humility puts a nice cherry on that humble pie of pride.
Since the beginning of time or the beginning of existence, Love has had the initial hand in producing all that is, everything starts with a clean slate,
when working from an attitude of true love, Wisdom is the result, any sort of deviation from Love like towards the material based ideals, tips the scales,
wandering away from true love causes the beginning of a lack of wisdom, we are all not saints, especially living in our 3-dimensional existences,
we have to find the acceptable common ground to meet at, when venturing towards our material needs we should keep in mind compassion, charity and tolerance in order successfully mesh our spiritual with our material.
Love is tough, it is very difficult to have unconditional love for everything, there must be a degree of acceptability especially for humans living in a three-dimensional existence,
we all have to contend with our senses for these conditions we put on love, it is easy to love ice cream, but not so easy to love some other and probably healthier food,
the smell of a rose is pleasant, but the smell of (and you can fill in the blank) isn't so nice, the same goes for visual beauty and pleasant sounds,
it isn't hard to like one more than the other, and when it comes to our sense of touch and our thought process, we all have the acceptable and unacceptable things that we live by,
not even thinking we swat the mosquito that lands on us, the ant found crawling on us in our own home has very little chance of surviving,
though we may not go out of our way to track down every ant on our property and destroy them, we still instinctively kill which isn't very nice,
I personally give fair warning to all creatures that invade my space telling them that there is nothing here for them except death, and it would be best if they stayed outside,
it all boils down to attitude, by keeping a loving attitude, in general, would be the wisest course of action.
What is the truth? Some people think it is not getting caught in a lie, it is sad how truth is being circumvented by semantics and confused by technical words,
why do people not search for the truth in truth, it seems that truth is being replaced by excuses and is being explained away by confusion and subterfuge,
where is the honor? The saddest part is that our governments fully support this type of action, just look at the news and see what is acceptable these days.
Lies are told, found out and soon forgotten, rinse and repeat, without stern respect for the truth, wisdom will always be lacking, it is easy to say, I love this and I love that, but talk is cheap, it is time to walk the walk,
love will always be lacking when honesty has taken the back seat to pride and appearances, and until we all grow up and speak the truth and truly love one another enough,
to be honest in all of our dealings, wisdom shall always remain an illusion in our prideful, arrogant and vain minds.
What is Wisdom? Wisdom is the realization that everyone and everything on our planet including the entire earth is part of the same thing,
Wisdom is respecting everyone's and everything's existence and beliefs, Wisdom is learning from all of our differences to make the world a better place to live,
Wisdom is to realize that Love is the most important thing that we could ever consider. Wisdom can be considered many other things,
mostly of common sense, not running with scissors, not playing in traffic, not peeing into the wind, learning from other peoples mistakes, I might make a statement that wisdom is relative,
but it shouldn't be, it should be a worldwide constant, but the environment, governments, and peoples superstitions about their religions and falling in with other peoples false personalities have fragmented this normally straightforward ideal to exclude unconditional love. This surely needs to be repaired.
There is much to be said about these three words, simple as they may be, they are probably the most important words in anyone's life,
without these words there can be no true happiness, no well being and no practical advancement in life, unconditional love is the cornerstone of any good relationship,
be it big or small, personal or business, going into a situation with an open mind willing to give the benefit of the doubt on the onset of any venture gives an air of integrity to all involved,
wisdom will surely follow in these situations, dealing from a truthful standpoint from the very beginning shows your loving intentions to all involved,
these three simple words are part of one another and are universally entwined, it is very difficult to deal with only one of these words,
they are an intricate part of cause and effect and always help to resolve any karma that has been acquired.
Just imagine if there was only truth in the words people speak, I am not speaking of personal views and opinions, but a conscious embracing of truth in all of its aspects, being dealt with everyone all of the time, where there would never be any subterfuge about any subject, idea or belief,
knowing where everyone stands clearly is a two-edged sword, there are some peoples truths that are not acceptable to other people, no matter how nice they are about it, this is where Love comes in, it is the sheath to this two-edged sword,
it tempers the different views with understanding and tolerance where this run amok truth-telling can be viewed with some wisdom to be dealt with in a fair unbiased way,
it is not only a more logical process, but it is infinitely less material in nature, as most subterfuge is materially based, be it for greed, power or wealth.
This brings us to peoples version of truth-telling, everyone has their version of the truth, what they consider truth is based on many things, what someone they respect tells them, what they hear on the news, what they read on the internet and the list goes on,
materialism has a big hand in these so-called truths, for example, many many years ago, the native Americans would have a peace pipe that was used as a social instrument when meeting someone new and unfamiliar,
ironically some of these pipes were made from tomahawks which would cover the anti-social version of a situation, a bit of tobacco or marijuana was shared between two newly met people or tribes and an agreement was met upon to not fight,
later, the rolling paper was developed and so was smoking, there was still a social content to this but its importance was greatly diluted, smoking became a past time or habit that was later discovered to be harmful to your health,
this billion dollar industry had taken hold of peoples lives and didn't want to let go,
later, an off-shoot of this came out called the vape, it claimed to be the safe alternative to smoking, but it still contained the key ingredient which held people captive, this device was refined so that the vapor was not scented and undetectable to others,
it marketed itself as a way to quit smoking, yet people did not quit smoking, they just traded it for vaping, nicotine is a poison, but its use has been accepted by society, it is proven to be addictive and causes many unhealthy reactions in the body,
and is involved in birth defects among other problems found and not yet discovered, this product has a large economic value and will not go away easily if it is allowed, it will shackle you, it is a perfect example of materiality's effect on the senses,
the truth of nicotine not being good for you is plain, but since it is found naturally in trace amounts in some foods, it is thought to be natural and good, this excuse is all that is needed to circumvent truth and unknowingly allow you become another prisoner of materiality,
nicotine does not occur naturally as an airborne particle but it does appear in some foods as a natural defense from insect attack, but putting this chemical in an aerosol form is no different from second-hand smoke other than having fewer carcinogens,
your children and loved ones are still at risk, this is the power of materialism at its worst, it causes normal people to defend a known poison and ignore the truth so that their senses can be appeased and the economic industry will defend it to our deaths,
this is an example of a truth that is unpopular and a good amount of society is willing to ignore, just look at asbestos and how long it was after it was found to be unhealthy before it was made illegal to use in building materials,
and that is only in the United States, it is still a big industry in Russia, the average life span there is about 6 years less than in the US, there are cases where love and wisdom need to catch up to the truth.
I cannot bad mouth all materialism as some of it has increased the quality of life, indoor plumbing, and air conditioning, refrigeration keeps us healthier and more comfortable, mostly it comes down to our free will and the strength we have to use it correctly.
The Importance of Life
So far this site has been hung-up on three little words, Love, Wisdom and Truth, the importance of these three words really take effect when you realize their importance in your life, we are all together here on this planet, experiencing a 3 dimensional existence along with the rest of the earth, the land the trees and plants and the animals,
without some amount of guiding words, we will all just run amok, It is one thing to fight among each other because of our beliefs, but it is another thing to destroy our planet and its inhabitants, polluting the atmosphere, deforestation and the treatment of the animal life is something that is taken for granted in these times,
for starters an unconditional love for all that is is a good start, treating everything with the same consideration as we would like to be treated may allow us all to exist in harmony, there is a need for coal by humanity that needs to be replaced, coal mining destroys the environment in many different ways, it displaces wildlife, pollutes water, kills plant life and poisons our atmosphere to name a few,
the material benefits are essential to many countries, but at what cost? Technology is able to replace coal or in the least reduce its dependence, better insulation to keep houses warmer and enabling the production of hydrogen as a replacement energy source is a good idea once the "Bottom Line" is reevaluated in the sense of life vs profit.
As life progresses, technology progresses and our priorities begin to shift towards the material, you begin to love your stuff, your cell phone, your social network, your television, your sports team, and the list goes on,
material stuff really is not who we are, we are so much more than what our senses present to us, this really is only a test, and not an easy test, only hundreds of years ago it was easier to be spiritual, the distractions were different and not as easy to come by,
now we can sit in airconditioned comfort using our indoor plumbing, go to the fridge and get what we want or call to get what we want to be delivered, communication is basically instantaneous, games on our computers, entertainment on our televisions and a host of many different types of sense satisfactions are abounding,
they distract us from reality they cloud our wisdom and mask the truth where we are all comfortably complacent, now we only care about the stars of television and internet and what they say and do, they are the teachers of materiality and we are the mesmerized students,
if there were to be some sort of giant EM pulse that would immobilize all of our technology for just a week, that might be enough of a reality check to snap some of us out of our sense driven stupors and enable us to search within for some wisdom.
The Power behind these three words are totally spiritual in nature, the material world has very little use of them, it is true that they are used to describe certain material aspects of life,
but that cannot be helped because we all live on a material based planet that lives within its senses, there is a "wisdom" of using electric cars over gas, and the "truth" about global warming cannot be denied and feeling a great "love" for my favorite sports team makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside, but this isn't where the power of these words reside, these are just superficial concepts that are short-lived, but we feel an importance for them because we "feel" them, the divine aspect of these words lead us to a Spiritual Realization that has been discussed in Theology for thousands of years,
the philosophy behind these words are varied and have been made the lives work of many great people throughout history, I don't wish to hijack these words for purely spiritual reasons as they still need to be used whenever they can even if it is to describe the most simple meaningless thing that can be thought of,
their lofty, altruistic and selfless uses are what make them truly great like a spectacular sunset, they cannot be wasted, only abused somewhat, but they are tough and everlasting like the sun or should I say some sun, as the light will always be out there somewhere.
Enough cannot be said about Love, Wisdom, and Truth, they have differing degrees as viewed by each of us, they are realized by everyone differently, so who is really right? And who has the right to say who is really right?
We all have moral compasses that we live by and humanity tries to make laws for us all to live by, but there still is the crude underbelly of our societies that live and exist outside of mans law where atrocities are accepted and even lived by certain factions of humanity that are driven by greed and have no respect for human rights,
freedom to worship as you wish and not have your property taken from you, let alone being taken into slavery and used and sold to others that believe the same, they would have you believe that this is fair game and too bad you are not as ruthless as they are,
what is their definition of Love, Wisdom, and Truth? Do they even consider these words ever? All of these people are the victims of their own false personality, they cannot see past their senses and live for their material gains, their definitions of these three words are purely material based.
On the other hand, there are organizations out there that have the world's best interest in mind and strive to help humanity as a whole, they are basically unheard of because they are not so interested in profit and are not so attractive to the materialists,
they appeal to real humanity all around the world, they want peace and to feed the hungry and preserve all human rights, they are the true altruistic organizations, and they are supported by the few materialistic humans that have finally realized that those three beautiful words really mean something worthwhile,
where love is always unconditional, this is how they have acquired their wisdom, and when they see how these organizations help the world, truth prevails. It would be a worthwhile venture to explore these organizations,
some are small and more personal, and others are huge and help humanity on a global scale and all of these are worth getting involved with, it is all up to us to turn the tide of human greed towards giving to all of our brothers and sisters.
By now it must seem quite obvious that Love, Wisdom, and Truth are good things that should be in everyone's life, and probably to some people this site is silly because I am stating the obvious,
kudos to those people that find this site redundant and unnecessary in their life as you probably live an ideal life without such confusion, it is for the people that this is not so readily apparent that this site is intended for,
I feel that these three words are worth spelling out to those that do not understand why the words have such importance, you need only to look these words up in the dictionary or on the internet to get a better idea of their meaning, and their importance will sink in after a while.
The love we feel for everyone will be the start of our evolution, unconditional love is not so easy as we all have opinions as to how life should be lived and wish to let everyone know these opinions,
this is not bad, the hard part is leaving it at that and allowing others to follow their paths, your opinions are yours and should not be forced upon anyone else, an acceptance of these differences is what will show your wisdom,
some of these paths differ from yours as all people are not you, they need to prove their own way, the recognition of wisdom is also a part of this process, paying attention to other peoples opinions may also modify your path for the better,
as our unconditional love will lead to eventual wisdom, the truth will be the outcome and that outcome will be recognized and appreciated by all.
The Hindrances to Human Evolution
With all of the wars and inability to just get along it is not surprising that we have not come any further than we have as a race, we use excuses like religion to keep the unrest going,
we are all just so set in our ways, this land is ours because it was written in our scriptures that it is ours and anybody that doesn't believe as we do can't stay in it, alive anyways,
the selfishness and narrow mindedness of our civilizations are what is holding humanity back, and this isn't just limited to certain parts of the world,
the United States which is supposed to be so civilized by having so many different faiths in one country still guards and greedily supports its specific faiths to the point of bad mouthing non-believers and non-followers,
a competition still prevails between the different places of worship, differences are tolerated, but more should be done on everyone's part to embrace our differences, we need to set an example for the rest of humanity to follow,
all men are created equal is a good thought, but living by it is another thing, if you don't like the sound of a rooster crowing, you shouldn't live in the country.
A transformation or a transference of emotion from hate to love is what is sorely needed to improve our chances to evolve, replacing greed with charity and pride with humility will temper our emotions to enable all of us to coexist with each other,
we do not need to sacrifice our free will, we just need to preserve other peoples free will, we do not need to change our beliefs as we do not need to change other peoples beliefs, live and let live is a good motto to live by,
we may have opinions and we can state them but we have no right to enforce them on others, wisdom shall come to us when we realize all of our similarities and embrace our differences,
we cannot help but live in our sense driven existences, we just need to realize that we have the control required to determine if we intend to take the reins of our lives or just let our lives run us,
letting our emotions control us and surrendering to our senses is a loss of control that we cannot afford if we intend to progress as a race and be considered civilized.
It shouldn't be as hard as people make it, it is one thing to have faith in God or beliefs that will make our world a better place to live and it is another thing to think that our personal views are the only ones worth considering,
if the ultimate goals of our beliefs are peace and unconditional love, there is very little that should hinder the acquisition of those goals other than pride, greed, and power,
by using some discrimination in our scriptures and ignoring the fear generated and not succumbing to the threats and superstition, we will all end up with the same things that are trying to be obtained,
no one is in any position to dictate how we worship as long as it does not interfere with anyone's free will, we all have different paths that we follow, and as long as they all end up in the same place eventually,
there should be no great concern about how we get there, and possibly we can learn something worthwhile from others in the process.
