or, Can You Update Your Beliefs When Needed?

I have a duck collection. But there’s a problem…

My ducks won’t stay still.

I want to get my ducks in a row, but they keep moving, and I don’t know what to do about it!

Actually, these ducks are just a metaphor for my beliefs about the nature of truth and reality. My beliefs keep changing based on the information I get.

The more I learn, the more I adapt my beliefs to fit the known facts, so my ducks line up again.

Trouble is, I still don’t know enough, and so I may not yet be perfect in all my understanding about God, about the nature of reality, and about life.

Here’s what I wrote about the situation last night – about my search for the truth.

Tell me what you think about this.

THE LIGHT

I’m hoping for some answers, 

Looking for what’s right

Wandering through the dark

Searching for the light

Searching, ever searching, 

I know my quest is right

Groping in the dark

Praying for the light

If only I could find you 

It would end my plight

Searching, ever searching, 

To find you, if I might

My reward, it lies before me

I’ll be dressed in sheets of white

Resting on my pillow

When morning comes so bright

And when I’ve finally found you

It will be a brilliant sight

To see everything I’d hoped for

And shine, forever in your light.

As for my ducks

Actually, many of my beliefs do line up, and the logic makes good sense. I’ll explain why in future posts.

How solid are your beliefs? Are you ready for change?

Til next time…
