~ Peter Van Buren
Truth is simple. Real truths are universal. They have no exceptions.
We recognize truth when we hear it, because we aren’t hearing it for the first time. Rather, we are remembering what we already knew, but had forgotten.
Qi comes from Sheng Zhen, from unconditional love.
Since qi flows through all things and connects all things, we are always connected to Sheng Zheng, to love, through our qi.
Our practice strengthens and intensifies this connection.
However, in addition to “unconditional love”, Sheng Zhen can also be translated as “supreme truth”.
So in addition to love, we are also always connected to truth. This is why we know it when we hear it.
However, we only hear truth when we are ready for it. Otherwise, we either hear what is said, but don’t understand it, and just let it go. Or, we don’t hear it at all*.
When the time is right, when our heart is open, the truth just seems obvious.
* I am sure the universe has an endless series of creative (and funny) ways to stop us from hearing truths until we are ready for them.
