Transformation 101: The Two Truths

Aired Tuesday, March 24, 2020 at 10:00 AM PST / 1:00 PM EST

Those familiar with Eastern philosophy will recognize the concept of the Two Truths: Absolute and Relative. These ideas can help us tremendously to understand our experience, and to make better decisions every day to grow spiritually and further Massive Transformation in our lives. They feature this week in our series Transformation 101.

Here is the fundamental difference between the Absolute and the Relative: Absolute Truth refers to what is, Relative Truth to what appears to be. If you’re reading into this that one is real and one is not, you would be right. Exactly right.

Eastern philosophy refers to Absolute Truth as the Nature of Mind or the Ground of All Being. In Western terms, we might call it God, Spirit, Source, the Universe, etc. It simply is. In Relative Truth, the world plays out with all its myriad experiences.

In the world with all its variance, it can be a challenge to see another’s needs as our own. Yet this remains our task if we would grow and transform our experience. When our apparent differences seem so pronounced, how can we see past the differences for greater communication and understanding?

The answer lies in Absolute Truth; we seek answers from spiritual practice. The only way to escape an unhappy situation is to seek solutions from outside the confines of that situation. We break out of a psychological prison by coming to realize that there are no walls.

Join me this week for a spotlight on the importance of spirituality and its prominence in our lives. Experience a guided meditation and entertain the idea—call it the truth—that everything and everyone is spiritual. Go deep, and get the answers you have been looking for.
