The Relative Truth

In my novel, The Day Harry Sued God (posted on this page - on the left side - as well as on its own website:, the main character (Harry) writes a book called The Relative Truth.

According to Harry, all spiritual truth is relative, at least at this stage of our development. What is true for each of us is relative to our current perspective and understanding. As we grow and widen our awareness, our "truth" grows and expands accordingly. Thus, it does no good to argue about "the truth". What is true for us will depend upon our current level of awareness/consciousness.

I recently came across the following passage, in which Michael discusses how you must find and cultivate your truth, as distinguished from the truths of others:

"So many seekers on spiritual paths look outward, look for guidance, for teachers, for gurus, priests or shamans or similar human beings. Those human beings however can only provide you with their truth, and often fail to guide you to your truth. You may wonder, what could be the difference, you may think there can only be one truth. In the core essence of all, there is only one truth, divine truth. But while incarnated, you will find out that what you consider to be truth, changes with time, or rather, it changes with your development. The more you advance on your spiritual path, the more you discover, allowing you to see other angles to what you previously thought to be the whole picture, thus giving you a different truth. But even the highest developed gurus will only be able to give you their truth. While some of them may truly be far developed and be able to give you a truth that is getting close to the divine truth, it still is a filtered truth, and their truth. But all that matters, is your very own truth, because what you perceive of truth is what reflects your image, your picture, of the world you live in. While the truth your mind provides may be less than ideal, it is what matters to you now, and even when you hear someone else’s truths, you will only accept it as your truth if it matches your truth - whether it is the truth your mind already established as such, or it harmonizes with your inner truth. While the mind’s truth may only be an illusion, it is part of you, and part of your process to reach your goal of enlightenment, or at least the intermediate goal of spiritual growth. It is good to become aware of what truth is, as only on such a level of awareness where you can see the truth about truth, can you reach the levels of awareness that allow you access to your core inner truth - divine truth. You get closer to this inner core truth when you get in contact with your higher self, whether this may be through meditation or another “moment for the soul”, which can be as simple as standing by the ocean, a lake, a forest - or just a tree - and simply observing nature, relaxing your mind, letting your soul fly. These moments - or by more disciplined moments such as meditation - guide you little by little, step by step, to your inner truth. This is a vital process for your spiritual development, and do not fear this - it only brings you greater clarity and more peace about things in life, about the way life is on this planet. There is a reason for everything to be the way it is; while you may not know the reason, simply allow the inner core truth to speak to you."

Joy In The Midst Of Uncertainty

"We would ask you to define what security means to you. It is probably any number of different things, including some of those John mentioned.

"What is going to happen if you place your faith, your trust in those things -- dollars, religion, government, other people, etc.?

"Once you've reached some sense of security in whatever way you can, you still don't, and never will, know with absolute certainty what lies ahead of you. Isn't that what lies at the heart of your yearning for security -- wanting to know what the future holds for you?

"You all live with uncertainty, no matter how much false security you think you have. That perhaps is the real key here today. Can you still live a joyful life in the midst of uncertainty?

"There are no guarantees, friends. As long as you live in these physical bodies, you will never know what the future holds.

"Even we in these dimensions of spirit do not know your or our future -- because we are all growing, changing, evolving into greater and grander expressions of divinity, of God.

"None of the illusions of security can give you real security. Your real security lies within you. You are all powerful beings, free to create whatever you wish.

"Why not create a life of joy, even if you know not what the future holds? Even in the midst of global recessions? Why not live fully in each present moment, loving your life and everyone, everything in it?

"You can live joyously even in the midst of uncertainty. You are your security. Finding joy in your life is the only guarantee of security. It's all you need. Then you will find security amidst the uncertainty because then you will know you, as an extension of God, can create the life of your dreams.

"You don't need to know what lies ahead. You only need to know you are the creator."

Sad Songs Say So Much

"Humans in general on this planet try to avoid sadness, difficulties, and dark energies. However, we tell you that most music on this planet has been inspired by these dark energies. Most of the beauty that you truly find comes from the shadows hitting light in a certain way. Finding the beauty in the darkness will be a key role as empowered beings and Lightworkers. Finding those opportunities for light is now at hand for all humans. You have placed yourself in key positions all over the world to be there at the right time with the right energy. You have made it. You are here! The time is right and now we ask you to look at the darkness for all the beauty that it holds. Look at those restrictions, those negativities, the horrible things that are coming on your news. See them as opportunities for light, because these are the things that will catalyze your next incarnation here in this physical body. You are being re-born even now. That is what the re-wire process is about on many levels.

"Keep in mind as you do this that you are not the physical body at all. Many of you push away those physical parts and deny those pieces of yourself in order to be spirits. We tell you, however, that in fact you have no problem being spirits. It is being human that is the problem. You are here as spirits to have a human experience and that includes light and dark, failure and success. Those are only labels placed upon your journey as you go forward, but they mean nothing when you get Home. The parts you will re-member are how you found beauty in the darkness -- how you found your part of your world to share. That is the piece you came to do and we tell you now is the time."

It's Who You Are

"The answer is simple: Seek only joy in your life.

"I realize that sounds like an impossible task to many on the earth plane. But it is not impossible. It may be difficult at first, especially if you've been habitually focusing on what does not bring you joy.

"But you can move into a state where most, and even all, of your present moments are filled with joy. And you can achieve that in this lifetime.

"But you cannot do it if you insist on focusing only on what most of your world focuses on. It behooves you to pay attention to what you're paying attention to. If you read your daily newspapers, for example, you're paying attention to what most of the world is focusing on. And just how does that make you feel? Certainly not joyful.

"You have to move out of the mainstream to be joyful. You have to be willing to do whatever it takes to feel good. You have to be relentless in your insistence that you will choose only experiences that feel good. Whether we're talking about relationships, jobs, places to live - it doesn't matter.

"What does matter is that you choose only experiences that feel good. That you make a deliberate, conscious choice to experience only joy in your life.

"The more you focus on joy, the more joy the Universe will deliver to you. The more you focus on what's less than joyful to you, the more the Universe will deliver that to you.

"The more joy you experience it this physical lifetime, the more you remember who you really are.

"Joy is not only the key to remembering who you are. Joy IS who you are."

-Conversation with Chief Joseph & John Cali , February 7, 2002.

Since 1992, John Cali has been communicating with a non-physical entity called Joseph. In one of his many physical lifetimes, this spirit was incarnated as the legendary Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce tribe in what is now Oregon. These messagess are a blend of information from Joseph and John.

The Paradox Of Being Human

"Now. There are a couple of paradoxes that apply to the information that we’ve attempted to express to you on this afternoon. And the first is that you enter into this vibrational level by choice. And when you enter into this vibrational level by choice you agree to participate in what we refer to as the human consciousness concept and belief system and that you will limit your capacity in all levels of your consciousness to understand absolutely who and what you truly are, to understand that you are in control of this creation and of this reality that you experience in this vibrational level.

"Even in your so-called between incarnational periods, what you refer to as dying, you don’t really die, you simply alter your consciousness one step beyond what you might refer to as a deep dream state. And in that level of consciousness there still exists this so-called veil, this electromagnetic type of energy that limits your capacity to understand who and what you truly are. However, as you deepen—if you wish to use that terminology, you may reverse it and say as you heighten your level of awareness and consciousness—it’s in that veil.

"And so, in your between incarnational states indeed the veil is much thinner than it is when you are in your awake and consciousness state, however it still exists. And you have agreed to participate in sustaining, maintaining, that electromagnetic type of energy. And the paradox is that in your awake consciousness state you exert so much effort to understand who and what you truly are, to understand that which you have agreed to not understand, that which you have agreed to make inaccessible to all levels of consciousness in this vibrational level. And you do that for a very simple reason. And the reason is that when you’re existing in this vibrational level in your awake and consciousness state, if you don’t understand that you are the creator of your reality then the reality appears to be so much more real and beyond your capacity to control. Your choice, to be involved. Absolutely. And yet you choose as well to not understand the full extent of your involvement.

"You choose to limit your capacity to consciously be involved in the creation of this reality. You choose. Not some other entity, absolutely not. You choose to put in place and to sustain that electromagnetic type of energy to be involved in this creation process. With what you might call a cooperation of all the other entities, a consensus to perpetuate the veil and to exist in your vibrational level. You choose that which you desire to sustain and which, in your human consciousness, you attempt to break through, to understand. A paradox, absolutely."


"So, many times the reasons why you are here are so simple as to be beyond your ability to accept and to believe in your awake and consciousness state. You are here by choice. You are here to experience an intense range of emotions and feelings that cannot be experienced in any other vibrational level throughout all of creation. This vibrational level that you choose, not only to exist in but to create and perpetuate, is a vibrational level in which you exist within the limitations of a veil, the limitations of an electromagnetic type of energy that limits your capacity to understand who and what you truly are. And you do so, so that the reality can seem beyond your capacity to control. And as a result of being beyond your capacity to control, you enhance the intense emotions and feelings. It’s really that simple."

That Spark Of Consciousness That You Are

"You see, the reality that you experience is a reflection of the belief that you hold. When you believe that you have this universe that exists out there and you can put something out into your so-called universe and it will create what you desire and come back to you from the universe, then it’s an illusion, and doesn’t really exist. It comes from that spark of consciousness that you are. It comes from withinside. It’s who and what you truly are. And then you begin to hold concepts that there are universes outside of your universe, you can have that, absolutely. And when you begin to hold those concepts that those universes have unlimited power you can have that as well. Absolutely. But understand, that it’s only there because you believe it’s there. It only has validity because you choose to validate it. It’s not real. It’s an illusion. A significant illusion, absolutely, but an illusion nonetheless.

"It’s an illusion that only exists in its true form withinside. The spark of consciousness that you are creates your entire reality. Not just part of it; all of it. And what you experience in your awake consciousness state is a reflection of what you believe.

"What you experience in your awake consciousness state is a reflection of what you truly desire to experience because that spark of consciousness that you are creates whatever it is that you desire without judgment as to whether or not it’s right or wrong. If you wish to believe that you exist in a system where this Earth that you experience in your awake consciousness state has capacity to influence your creation (inaudible) and your creation process, you can have that, absolutely. They’re not right or wrong, it’s a choice that you make and you can believe that if you wish.

"If you wish to believe that there are powers out in the universe that create and influence your reality, you can have that as well. And it can be very comforting to have those beliefs and those choices that you are not in control in all of your reality that will—“Yeah, I can believe certain things and then I put it out to the universe and it comes back.” But if it doesn’t come back the way you desire it in your awake consciousness state, the way that you, in your awake consciousness state perceive it to be, then you can always say, “Well, there, you see, I was not really in control. The universe does have an influence upon my reality. The universe does influence what I experience, and the universe is indeed a power to be reckoned with.”

"It certainly is a power to be reckoned with: it’s you. It’s your power. It’s who you are. And in your awake consciousness state if you choose to not be in control, you can have that. And when you choose that and when you experience it it enhances the experience and it makes it more real. That’s why you exist in this vibrational level in the first place, is to experience a range of emotions and feelings that are so intense that you cannot duplicate them in any other vibrational level throughout all of creation. And you accomplish that by limiting your capacity to understand who and what you truly are in your awake consciousness state."
