Our sense of truth is a function of our limited-but-expanding understanding of our lives and the ever-changing universe we find ourselves in.
Because our reality and our sense of it are in constant flux, what we commonly hold as true is, at best, a temporary certainty.
Said simply, most truth has shelf life.
The more we come to see truth through the lens of time, change — evolution, the more we’re able to embrace the invitation it presents to explore truth, rather than short-sidedly attempt to corner it. Which, in turn, leaves us more curious, open, and free to hold things much more loosely.
It’s through this lens I suggest a life well-lived is not as one where we managed to corner truth, but one where we left a long trail of abandoned, replaced, and upgraded truths.
