Is it time for a truth update? Or are you still holding onto ideas that once were true for you and no longer are? We can get entrenched in our pet beliefs and ignore the fact that they are no longer relevant or useful. They just don't work any more. For example, the "truth" that the earth was the center of the universe was defended...to the death(!)...by the Roman Catholic Church in the 1600s. A guy named Galileo was considered a heretic by because he could prove that the sun was actually the center of the universe.

We all have beliefs that we hold as sacred that are NOT true any more. So let's open to the possibility that absolute truth is not an absolute truth. Views change with experience and education. There is no threat unless you hold a paradigm of fear and antagonism and "only one right way."
