Maybe we all spend too much time fretting that we're looking at issues from our own selfish perspective. Of course we do. It's the only one we've got. The reality is that we're all one. We share a singular consciousness. If you can be still enough for long enough, truth will tap you on the shoulder, whisper in your ear.
Unfortunately there have always been folks around who are willing, no- anxious, to "interpret" truth for you. Sometimes it's for the good. Jesus wasn't trying to convert you to Christianity. He was a Jew. Buddha had most of the same ideas in mind. Six centuries earlier, I should mention. Can you imagine how those guys might have caught on if Col. Parker or Brian Epstein had been there to help!
More often, unfortunately, it's folks up to no good who feel called to explain "truth" to us. They're likely to go into politics. Or religion.
You don't have to fiddle with the dial to tune in truth. Hit the scan button and be still. It sounds like love. It tastes like banana pudding.
