“There’s a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth.”
I’ve long believed in the old saying: “In the mind of the believer a perception is a fact.” The “truth” is created because of the facts we want to believe in, even if they aren’t true. The facts we choose to believe, or the ones that we seek out, can obscure the real truth from us.
That is why it is so important to get perspective from others. We need insight from people that don’t see the world the same way we do. Only through searching out other ‘facts’ can we ensure that we are seeing the truth.
Who do you go to to help find clarity and perspective? Who’s perceptions do you trust?
