Reflection: It is necessary to periodically reevaluate your ‘truth,’ particularly those negative things. When you come to understand a previous belief is no longer what you now hold, let it go, but do not dismiss the whole category. I’ve known quite a few people who, after deciding they did not believe in some of the precepts of the Catholic church, not only disassociated themselves with the offending concepts but with religion altogether. This is called throwing the baby out with the bathwater. One does need to discriminate, to evolve a greater understanding of reality, but this can be done surgically. Let go of the single outmoded concept and leave the remaining structure intact. Allow the space of lesser truth to be filled with greater truth. Keep your hope alive for a better understanding. Actively investigate superior ideas and ideals.
