Truth is eternal. Our knowledge of it is changeable. It is disastrous when you confuse the two.
– Madeleine L’Engle
So very true. And the disaster happens all too often.
And how very freeing to begin to understand this: As I grow — up, out, deeper — and I accept that my understanding of truth is changeable, how much that frees me to change. If I truly accept this, then it is no problem to “change my mind.” Not defeat. Just a new understanding.
Wouldn’t that be nice.
