People once thought the world was flat. People once believed the Sun revolved around the earth. People once believed that man couldn’t fly. Some people accepted and followed Hitler’s beliefs — and millions of people died. People once believed in the gods of Zeus, Thor, and a whole list of other deities from Greek mythology. Some still do.
Over time our beliefs have changed. If what we believed in years past is considered false today, then how do we know what we’ve been taught about That-Which-Is-Greater-Than-Self will be true in the future?
We look back over the years and wonder how people could have held such silly beliefs, but time has twenty-twenty vision, and who is to say that centuries from now people will marvel at the erroneous beliefs our religions held. Truth is elusive. Stone Four encourages us to discern — not so much what is right and wrong, but to discern what resonates with us. If we are connected with Divine Thought, then we will instinctively know right and wrong. It might not be the same thing today as it was yesterday. Trying to offer a set of rules that must be kept no matter the circumstances often breaks the individual who adamantly refuses to see any gray areas.
