A few times recently, people have asked about or commented on my apparent confidence in statements I make here. Some of the terminology I’ve come to use is unique, so I may sound like yet another voice with yet another truth.
This is not the intention and I want to be clear where I am coming from. I don’t expect you to believe any of this. I am simply sharing some insights in the hope it may bring some light for you and open you a little more to your own truth.
“Rule #1. Don’t believe me. But learn to listen…what I’m telling you is just a story… it is true just for me.”

Some of the words I use because they are simply clearer than other more common words that are more loosely used. Buckminster Fuller was more extreme here, even inventing some words for precision.
Secondly, my confidence is because I am describing what is real, to me. And its a reality that works, that explains pretty much everything – however pointless that may be. (laughs) While it is my intellectual position, it is not a statement of beliefs so much as experience. Much of it arises from deep within, then is processed by the brain. I have given these ideas a lot of attention over a very long time.

That said, I also clearly recognize that I am evolving and what is real is evolving too. I regularly talk about this process for me, such as some of the recent stuff on Inclusiveness.
This is my position on truth and perspective.
There is one truth, but there is many ways of seeing that truth. As a human, I can see greater and greater values of that but not perceive all of it at once. One can be all of it but not perceive all of it. The highest truth cannot be perceived at all. Thus I fully recognize that this writing is only one perspective of the one reality. This part of the whole.
As we grow and evolve, we step through a series of perspectives or world views. Our perspective of reality thus shifts and evolves along with our perception. We have a unique perspective and it is changing and expanding. Mine too. And it always will.
I am simply another voice of the One, with another perspective on what is. Take what is of value and leave the rest.
