“We are strange beings, we seem to go free, but we go in chains – chains of training, custom, convention, association, environment – in a word, Circumstance – and against these bonds the strongest of us struggle in vain.” – Mark Twain
Your perspective is conditioned by and subject, in part, to your experience. Education and travel can broaden your experience and as a result widen your frame of reference, but your perspective will always be limited or distorted in areas where your consciousness has yet to be disenthralled by truth.
The truth frees you from the “chains of training, custom, convention, association, environment” in a way that no other quality or experience can. The truth is absolute and is therefore neither bound by consensus nor shaped by human opinion. Moreover, the laws of science and the principles of being are governed by the truth. Knowing the truth, then, liberates you from the shackles of temporal knowledge and opens your mind to eternal wisdom.
To know the truth you must be willing to throw away anything that is false, no matter how much you love or have invested in that which is up for disposal. This requirement seems harsh to the human mind, but it must be said and seen that the refusal to allow for and participate in this sorting process is at the core of why we’re in the mixed state we’re in today.
Delay no more! Cut your losses and break off the chains of circumstance! Let your consciousness be lifted and you shall walk from this moment on in the light of truth.
