The naked truth
Intuitive Healer Katarina Winslow reflects on
I believe many of us have had time to realise that some things do not turn around in this world. For the first time in the history of humankind, we are up for a significant healing opportunity.
If we open new doors in our consciousness, we can unlearn and relearn about our inner selves and the world we live in. Only to discover that there are subtle beliefs that have sneaked into our minds without any real foundation.
Some subtle messages instruct our minds to follow, and sometimes completely obey, narratives far from the reality of life. When we look closely, we notice there are psychological programs that have been inserted into our minds without question. One of these is not trusting your own worth, or your own perception. Now has never been a better time to weed out some old psychological programs that do not serve the world we want to see. The one specific 'virus' that I would like to reflect on is our individual lack of worth. Is there really anyone who is more worthy than another? Looking from the eagle perspective, nothing would matter without you because you would not experience a thing.
To elaborate on this question, I would like to mention the well-known tale of 'The Emperor's New Clothes', by HC Andersen. Two weavers promise an Emperor a new set of clothes that is invisible to those unfit to occupy their high positions, incompetent, or stupid. The Emperor orders the majestic clothing with enthusiasm, only to find out at the moment of the fitting that the exquisite suit is invisible to himself. After digesting and skillfully concealing the blow to his pride, he decides to pretend how beautiful the clothing is. Of course, the rumour of the clothing has reached far through the Emperor's kingdom, and by hearsay everybody knows how magical the fabric is. If you cannot see it, you are simply not suitable for your position in society. Of course, the chain of concealing the truth continues as the Emperor's officials facing the naked emperor decide to swallow their pride as well. Not even thinking that they might see the reality that there actually is no fabric, they all continue to admire the naked Emperor while praising the impressive silk, the sublime colors, and the magnificent shape of the design. The more the Emperor's noblemen sees what is not there, the more visible it gets. Until the day finally comes when the Emperor will parade his new clothing to be admired by his people.
As the naked Emperor steps out into the crowded street, people cheer and admire him with wide-open eyes, pushing back the question of their own perception's worth to a faraway corner in their minds. Luckily, when the Emperor parades before his subjects in his new clothes, a child cries out, "But he isn't wearing anything at all!" Suddenly, the crowd can breathe a huge sigh of relief as everybody can relax in the truth, that their worth was not at stake. They had seen the truth all along; they had only been duped by two con artist weavers. Just like the Emperor had. With this in mind, I question if any of the subjects were more worthy than others? Is the Emperor more worthy than the child? The truth is, nobody is more worthy than another, and I believe it is fair to say that the truth is the worthiest in any situation. Not only the child saw that the Emperor had no clothes, even the Emperor himself saw it.
The bottom line is that if you do not trust your own self and the worthiness of your own perception, there is room for many deceit levels. We know nothing of the lies that make up another human being's consciousness.
That is why we are equally worthy, as long as we make our own sovereignty and our own perception the highest reference. Our worth is limitless when we align with truth. The truth is that the simple truth is accessible to all regardless of status, age, profession, wealth, or beauty, as we are being created equal in our faculty to see with our own eyes. We all have access to consciousness if we only chose to see. With that thought, how can anybody be more important than you? You are your life, you are your experience, and if you put your trust in someone else or trust in misleading information, you missed the point of your entire existence to become conscious.
The truth is, we are here to trust our own sovereignty and the truths we perceive.
So, trusting the truth as in this case, if you see that the emperor is naked, accept your own perception even if the entire world sees a magical fabric when there is none.
Trust the truth because, in truth, there is no hierarchy. It simply is the naked truth.
Sometimes truth involves sandcastles to shambles… And that is how it should be if the truth is concealed, made up, or a make-belief. Truth does not deceive you. Lies do.
When you accept a lie for the truth, it is most likely that you betrayed yourself at the origin, as illogical as not trusting your own eyes. One of the reasons for this is that we do not want the people we made our heroes fall from their pedestal. On another note, maybe we are indirectly defending our own parents or tutors if they were not who we believed them to be. We protect the falsehoods of the people we think care about us, as the subjects trusted the emperor as a self-preserving mechanism by denying their own sovereignty.
This might seem weird, but there are many profound psychological mechanisms in our psyche that actually believe that better a comfortable lie than an uncomfortable truth.
The thing is that this is a blatant lie as you can never be truly free nor conscious if you believe in made-up narratives, deceptive illusions, or widespread rumours.
As Gloria Steinem said, “The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off”.
And as Rayya Elias, the author, said, “The truth has legs; it always stands. When everything else in the room has blown up or dissolved away, the only thing left standing will always be the truth. Since that's where you're gonna end up anyway, you might as well just start there.”
There is no hierarchy in human life, at least not from the creator's perspective. The only hierarchy we should accept is the truth. It is the backbone of our humanity.
And it involves the truth of your own worthiness.
The only thing that is more worthy than you or me, is the truth.
Let us fall in love with the truth so that you, I, and humanity can stand proud in the naked truth of our unique value in creating a more truthful world.
