What is the Truth?

I think these words by the Buddha sums up the message I wish to convey today very nicely:

“Don’t blindly believe what I say. Don’t believe me because others convince you of my words.

Don’t believe anything you see, read, or hear from others, whether of authority, religious teachers or texts.

Don’t rely on logic alone, nor speculation. Don’t infer or be deceived by appearances.”

“Do not give up your authority and follow blindly the will of others. This way will lead to only delusion.”

“Find out for yourself what is truth, what is real. Discover that there are virtuous things and there are non-virtuous things. Once you have discovered for yourself give up the bad and embrace the good.”

None of us are the authority of Truth, and no one can with absolute certainty know anything at all.

The Real Teacher is Stillness.

Truth is to be realized from within, and it’s really truth connecting with itself – it can’t be given from the outside or created by the mind.

It’s even difficult to put words to in order to share with others, it’s a knowing, an intuitive knowing, or beingness.

I think that when we think we know something, we really don’t. It’s very humbling to come to that realization.

All we can know is right now, the experience of this moment, but the experience itself is not the truth – Truth is eternal and it doesn’t change, has never changed and will never change.

But it doesn’t matter how much we say that to each other – it’s all an inside game.

What was doesn’t matter, and what comes doesn’t matter – we only have this moment and the Truth is here and now, it’s not something to be gained in the future.

How will God use me, we ask. Well, the Truth is; Like This, Right Now. This is how God uses us.

However it may look, it may not be in a huge revolutionary way at all; but Like This. And that’s it.

What a revelation! 🙂

Truth is, and I can say that because I know you’ll agree with me when you have asked yourself the same question, we don’t really know anything at all. We may think we do, but then the next day it may all have changed, and where is the Truth then..?

There’s a huge freedom in that! To not know, to let Life do it’s thing through and as us without our opinions and stories about anything.

I love going through life questioning everything and being in a constant state of curiosity and inquiry; I’m always saying things like “show me the Truth about this”, “what is real and true about this” and so on, and then just listen very attentively to the voice within and trusting it, moment to moment.

This journey with you has been amazing

Words cannot fully express the profound impact of my session with you – it has been nothing short of magical. You helped me remove the blockages that held me back, helped me recognize my true worth, and providing so much insight that has been truly life-changing!

— Sarah K.

Could not more highly recommend

Maria is the real deal. You will sense it the moment you lay eyes on her. She offered much, much more than I’ve derived from other teachers; highly specific and personal recommendations. It is as though I got a crash graduate course from spirit. Could not more highly recommend!

The whole session felt as if it was operating on another level

If you can trust one thing in your life right now, trust Maria. You can trust her with your heart and soul. It’s hard to explain, the whole session felt as if it was operating on another level. I’ve never had that kind of experience before. It just felt so much bigger than I anticipated. I can tell you with absolute honesty and conviction that having a session with Maria is life-changing!

– Lisa, USA

The feeling of peace and freedom is priceless

This feeling of peace and freedom is priceless. Maria is beyond amazing. Had I not experienced it myself, I would probably not believe it. I recommend anyone who is trying hard to be truly free and really start walking down the path of self fulfillment and happiness to book a session with her.

Something happened within me that I cannot explain

During and after our session, something happened within me that I cannot explain nor would it even make sense to anyone. There was a part of me that felt my being been taken over by a real peacefulness that I’ve never encountered before. Sounds odd but it’s the truth.

– A.

I have never felt more aligned to my true self

Maria’s awareness of energies and the conditions of the mind are truly impressive. She knows exactly what’s going on. She is so attuned to other peoples’ energy that she just knows where you’re at. After working with her I have never felt more alive and aligned to my true self.

I had a complete turnaround to my situation

I had a complete turnaround to my situation so many thanks for helping me transform something I had lost hope about. It’s a miracle and the outcome could not have turned out better! If you want to see a real shift not just psychological but spiritual shift, then Maria is the lady to see. I am so glad I found you!

– Sophie P

Maria is leading people to a new way of being

Maria is changing the world by her presence. She’s leading people to a new way of being. She’s able to see where you are at in your journey and can show you the way forward. I feel so incredibly grateful that she has been a companion during this time of change. If you feel drawn to connect with Maria I encourage you to move forward with confidence.

You are truly a gift to us all!

I can’t even begin to express how much I have gained internally after my session with you. You have been an instrument of peace in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

– Owen, USA

You have really made a difference in how my mind works

I don’t know if I make sense, but all I can say is that I feel blissful. And I can’t thank you enough for that. I don’t know exactly how you managed this, but you have really made a difference in how my mind works.

– Silvia, Marbella, Spain

I’ve never had a conversation like that before

I just wanted to say thank you so much again for our session yesterday, I’ve never had a conversation like that before and it was truly amazing. I could feel weight lifted as we were talking and for the first time my mind did not try to make sense of things, it was all truly felt in the heart space.

Val, Melbourne, Australia

Now I know what is creating my reality

I’m overflowing with gratitude and joy! Life has changed dramatically for me after our time together. I have truly realized on a fundamental level what is creating my reality and it has given me confidence for the first time in my life to finally be ME, I feel liberated to be my authentic self!
