Feeling Tones Of Truth

The soul is the perceiver and revealer of truth. We know truth when we see it, let skeptic and scoffer see what they choose. Foolish people ask you, when you have spoken what they do not wish to hear, “How do you know it is truth and not an error of your own? We know truth when we see it from opinion, as we know when we are awake that we are awake. It was a grand sentence of Emanuel Swedenborg, which would alone indicate the greatness of of that man’s perception, ─ “it is no proof of a man’s understanding to be able to confirm whatever he pleases, but to be able to discern that what is true is true; and that what is false is false, this is the mark and character of intelligence.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson 1842 essay, The Over-soul gives us a sample of how beliefs and time affect truth. In his 19th century style, Emerson describes the world of physical matter. He understood that the world flows outward from the center of the inner psyche. There is nothing in our exterior experience that does not originate within the psyche. Physical life teaches us to use the inexhaustible energy that is available to all of us. Creativity flows through our cells effortlessly, and that creativity is packed with truth. Our feelings are dipped in electromagnetic realities. Inner electromagnetic energy affects objects as well as events. Some feelings become objects while others become structured events in physical time. The mark and character of intelligence is realizing that we create our experiences through our choices and expectations.

Our emotional feeling-tones are filled with truth, and there is a uniqueness that surrounds the essence within that truth. We sense the deep musical cords that play these tones as we choose what to experience. Some experiences are rooted in half-truths that manifest from antiquated beliefs. A number of antiquated beliefs are immersed in fear, and that energy is stamped into the psyche. The ink from those stamps colors our definition of truth. But, even half- truths have consciousness. All truths contain some qualities of our feeling-tones. These tones usually become the fiber of our physical experiences. They are fueled by awareness, so they eventually become false as the ego moves through time.

Different qualities of feeling-tones are expressed physically and become fashion statements of truth. Those statements are experienced as probabilities by individual consciousness in physical reality. Our individual reality as well as our mass reality is a combination of these feeling-tone fashion statements. Feeling-tone statements paint the landscape of our experiences as true, but these tones are measured by individual and mass awareness that occur within certain time sequences. The result is a changing opinion of truth as consciousness moves through physical time. The truths we know today are only fragments of the truths we experience in physiological time.
