… the reason there cannot be but one truth, and nevertheless, there are so many different ways of articulating it, is that delivering the message by using the stories the recipient is accustomed to is highly effective.
And because of all those steps, all these stories that were eliminated and nurtured, one day when she is old enough, Nan will, perhaps, see the beautiful senselessness of the situation: that the content of the message was Lib’s desire to save this girl, and that the way it was delivered was by no particular story.
If someone can abandon and adopt stories the way Lib did, in order to deliver a message—this shows that the message is critical. Absolutely critical. And it is, perhaps, close to being unconditional.033 📻 Message received.
An episode where I talk about the fiction movie “The Wonder” and Joseph Murphy’s “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind.” It ended up being related to the topic of unconditional love, once more. It is one that is on my mind the most, these days.
For Lib (a character from “The Wonder”), Anna/Nan (a girl who, due to the circumstances in the story, ends up having two names… or none) is worthy of abandoning and adopting all kinds of stories floating around in this world. This seems to be one way to interpret unconditional love or lack thereof: whether a person finds it more important to obsess over labels (ex: Christianity, communism, democracy, Buddhism, surrealism, Art with capital A, Literature with capital L, getting a gold medal, customs and politeness, etc) or the human for whom they mean the message.
