[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] There is nothing to defend

The ego focuses on error and overlooks truth. It makes real ,every mistake
it perceives, and with characteristically circular reasoning concludes that
because of the mistake consistent truth must be meaningless. ACIM

Are you focusing on the truth or on being right? Human beings love to
defend their position and as we say here "not look bad in front of other
people"

The ego thrives on a sense of separation and protecting itself, the truth
however needs no protection, the truth just is.

There is nothing to defend

There is nothing to protect

There is nothing to hide

When you are moving in truth there is absolutely nothing to defend or
justify.

And people will not understand if you are not reacting to certain events
which to the human eyes look like provocation and bad behavior. And guess
what? they don't have to understand, you know what the truth is and fueling
the ego is playing into the sense of separation and according to one of my
mentors, that is the only thing that we need to heal the sense of
separation, which makes us act as if we are superior or even inferior.

The truth is the truth, it cannot be discredited

Peace
