DEVELOPING WISE TRUTH
Wise truth is:
Grounded in an ethic of love for one another and for the world.
Deconstructing faulty and harmful beliefs, world views and systems that produce oppression, violence, death, destruction, exclusion, and inequality.
About locating and co-creating the beliefs, word views and systems that promote life, liberation, freedom, equality, and more inclusive, diverse forms of human flourishing.
Possibility focused rather than focused on problem-solving.
The tools needed to develop better thinking and reasoning skills.
Democratic and non-hierarchical.
Open ended and fluid rather than static. Change is the only constant.
Iterative and nonlinear. Characterised by spirals.
Complex and systemic---not dogmatic or black and white.
Both and thinking which embraces paradoxes and polarities; not based on dualism.
About all forms of knowledge gained from body, mind, heart, and soul.
About developing wisdom and discernment as to what constitutes flourishing and what does not.
Co-creating the resources of knowledge, wisdom, and discernment that fuel imagining new ways of flourishing then actually acting to co-create these imaginations into being.
Dear highly gifted maverick,
The key traits which characterize wise truth and its pursuit are love, humility, curiosity, attentiveness, listening, openness and being non-judgmental. Acquiring knowledge and expertise without these traits is just knowledge for knowledges sake which can be destructive.
Here are some resources and tools to help you to begin to wisely and constructively liberate yourselves and others from the status quo so you can co-create joyful revolutions of flourishing.
