We think we can get away with anything. And sometimes in the short run we actually can - jumping on a bus without a ticket, ignoring a stop sign late at night, telling a lie, being rude without a consequence for us. We pretend to know or understand, when in fact we don't. Or to be more patient or forgiving than we are. That is the nature of the human condition.
While praying for someone in need it came to me that there is something that can get away with anything. That is allowed to do anything it pleases and move forward at any speed that is right. That is truly powerful and holds all the answers to all the questions we might have in her hands. And that is Truth.
"Truth can get away with anything" - the thought expanded and the accompanying feeling of integrity and courage. Truth can do what it pleases, outline, guide, or rule in any way it finds fitting. Truth is all power and the only point of true rest, peace, and reality there is or can every be.
Truth is all power, so in our human experience, when in doubt, I thought, look for the real thing and go with the real thing. Opt for truthfulness, for an expression of what is right under the given circumstances. Endeavor to get to know Truth, God. See the link between Truth, God, and integrity, moral courage, purity, and never be afraid to speak the truth to power. With Truth you cannot negotiate or try to achieve a compromise. Truth is. With Truth you can only cooperate and grow into living it and thriving by it. (Similar to gravity, really). Mary Baker Eddy asks in an article these questions: "Can eternity end? Can Life die? Can Truth be uncertain?" (Pulpit and Press, p. 3)
A wonderful consistency of living is running through anyone honoring Truth. Truth is so gentle and always on our side. Truth is continuous. The case I prayed for, was healed and I learned an important lesson.
Let the wit and the empowerment by this idea - "Truth can get away with anything" - expand in your heart and enable you to look at the way you live your days, how you handle relationships and what priorities you have. No guilt will haunt your steps, no regrets or sadness will follow you around as you remember that quite naturally only Truth can get away with anything. Truth was always true and error never was. This is pure law in God's world. There is a lot to discover, a lot to let go and a lot to redeem, purify, and uplift. Truly. "Truth can get away with anything." Everything else simply can't.
