People Shape the Truth To suit Their Needs

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

Written by Gary Wonning

How many times have you said something to only have it misconstrued and misinterpreted by the person you said it to?

This seems to happen continuously, especially in today’s world. 

I have found that people only hear what they want to hear, or what suits their needs or agenda. They already have a preconceived idea about what you are going to say, and regardless of what you say, they will hear something entirely differently. 

Then, many will hurriedly tell others what they thought you said and before you realize what has happened , the rumor has spread and it becomes common knowledge, much to your dismay. 

Once it has gone this far, it has become common knowledge and  the accepted truth and regardless of how you try to explain or change their thoughts, it is almost impossible to change their opinion and many times you will spend the rest of your life living under the false assumptions of others. 

This is way too common in the political arena. 

There really isn’t much you can do about this, the only option is to know in your heart what is truth and live by it and the knowledge that you did the right thing and what others think or believe has no bearing on your life. 

Gary has been a writer/photographer for over thirty years. Specializing in nature and landscape photography, while studying native cultures.

His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.

He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of

Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.

He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.

In technology, we have made advances far superior to those that came before us, but, we have lagged behind in gaining or maintaining our spiritual knowledge.

For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.

The Importance of Speaking the Truth

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

Something we all need to remember in these times. 

“Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the Truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the Truth is still the Truth.”

~ Mohandas Gandhi

Davy Crockett, frontier fighter, congressman also said, “Make sure you are right, then go ahead. “
