How do we seek for the truth?
Listen to the stories of each side. Listen for the hurts. Look for and listen to the emotions displayed or withheld. Listen to the words used. Listen with unconditional love. Most importantly listen non-judgmentally. If we are able to remain objective we will find the truth on each side and therefore be able to recognize where misunderstandings exist. It should be easier to bring about a resolution when no blame is cast on either side than when we take sides and determine that one side is wrong and the other right. Most times in taking sides, or pointing out wrong and right, we perpetuate the problem instead of solving it.
Seeking for truth solves problems. Seeking for right and wrong, or who is to be blamed, prolongs the conflict. One party will feel wronged or feel that they are being viewed in a negative way and will want to seek redress. Let us be “truth seekers” rather than “blame casters”. Seek for the truth in preference to trying to find out who is right and who is wrong, thereby unintentionally prolonging the issue. The truth always wins.
