Over the years on her path Mahaádeii AmaMia has written teaching letters
for her students. A part of which was published in 2010 in her book "School of
Life - do you understand yourself".
She will now make these letters from the book available for everyone on this
This is the last letter.
I greet you today with great veracity!
Now your ability for truth will be tested. The veils fall within you and in your perception of your inner and outer world. Much has happened within you and in your world since you have read these letters. Are you really conscious of these changes? Do you really recognize the mercy that has befallen you or do you have illusions about your own credit? How is it with your ability for self-reflection? What do you feel whenever I confront you with the veracity that you have received everything through mercy and haven’t earned or attained anything yourself?
The encounter with truth is almost always also accompanied by disappointment and/or pain as long as you are still caught in the illusions of your ego. This is because when you encounter truth, you will always be confronted with the truth through the eyes of the other. What is truth? Is truth neutral or is truth subjective? Who or what decides what is truth? You decide about your truth through your individual evaluation system. The other decides about his truth through his individual evaluation system. Five people spend an evening together. The following morning all five of them are questioned about this evening independently of one another. The findings are that all five have experienced, registered and stored different truths about this evening and as such of course also described them accordingly. If this evening were recorded by a camera, which of course initially would be considered as neutral and as incorruptible, and the film would later be watched by a further five people who would also be asked about the truth of this evening, we would have another five varying descriptions about the truth of the evening. So what then is truth? There is no absolute truth within a dual world, as truth always originates from the personal cognitive ability, via the personal cognitive grid of the perceiving person. What is cognitive ability? A memory always arises from a multitude of mental information, single visual images and emotional reactions to these. From this a physical memory occurs, which implants itself in our cognitive store. Our mental body can only understand as information whatever it knows. If we hear words we must be able to recall a similar image in order to understand the information. We must understand it otherwise we cannot store it. If we have no matching image for the heard words, we automatically create a new image for this purpose with our individual power of imagination. However, usually this is not what the speaker is trying to describe to us, and as such there are already two varying truths at this point. If five people are involved in this conversation, there are five varying truths in a single conversation.
The biggest conflicts among people result from the inability of the egocentric person to acknowledge a different truth outside of his own. Every egocentric person lives in his own world with his own truth, which he defends as if it were veracity. The difference between truth and veracity lies in the ability to dissolve the duality between the individuals through the power of Love.
Observe yourself in how much effort and energy you waste in the attempt of conveying your truth to another person.
