When I start out to write a post on the weekends, I usually lack inspiration. However, during the week, that is all I can think about – saying “that should be a blog” or “great idea for a post!!” This week, I was all excited about expounding on “truth”, as in “There is SO much none of us will ever know.” (I was watching a program regarding what is “really” going on with our U.S. National Prayer Breakfasts.) In retrospect, that seems like a “duh” moment. Of course, there is so much we will NEVER know. Maybe that is the good news. And, the older I get, the more that becomes apparent. That doesn’t keep me from wanting to know more each day, thinking that at some point, I will know what is “true”. WRONG. It is not going to happen. I will just have to be satisfied with doing the best I can. That is really all I can do anyway.
Maybe that is the way it has always been. We can choose what we want to believe. “Truth” doesn’t exist. I am beginning to realize the power that gives me. The bigger my world gets, the more I realize that I have the power to choose what I want to believe. And, then deal with the consequences. So, with that thought in mind, I will post these commentaries – without commentary. Just know – somewhere within the non-commentary is my idea of “truth”, as I choose to believe it. Haha. At least, at this point in time. It could change with a whim and without notice. Just go with it! A word of warning – DON’T TRY TO SELL ME ON YOUR VERSION OF TRUTH. Chances are pretty good that I won’t buy it. No, I reserve the right to choose what I want to believe, thank you.
I think this is a good time for me to say thank you to all of the people who have checked out these posts. I really do appreciate it. Of all the 20,000 words that I have written to date (WordPress has kept count! Haha), I have had 5,923 visitors from all over the world, 33,700 views. Now, not everyone has “liked” my posts, but I am amazed that that many people have been curious. Thank you very much. I cannot promise that I will be different in the future. Your guess is as good as mine. We will all have to trust the inspiration of the moment.

Sorry, Jay, but I disagree. We cannot “decide” what is true, only acknowledge it. The world has become a more dangerous place when what is true has become a matter of belief. This has led to the epidemics of preventable diseases.

Janet, I would agree with you IF I had said I will “decide” what is true. I did not. I said “I have the power to choose what I want to believe . And, I do. No where in that post did I use the word “decide”. This post is about “belief”. Of course, I cannot DECIDE what is true. That would be stupid. But I can choose what I want to believe. This post does not mention science or scientific research. Neil DeGrasse Tyson says in your quote “whether or not you believe in it”. He does not try to tell me what I must believe.
So well written; so wise, with a touch of zen. As always, a very entertaining read.
