The fourth level of truth involves detachment from the past. Be aware of old reactive patterns that support assumptions and tendencies to be self-righteous, hurt or angry. Take time to bring yourself to the present moment and ponder the reality of what was said or done. Look for common patterns in your reactions, discerning what actually happened and the meaning behind the event.
For instance, if someone close to you repeatedly triggers hurt, question the stories you hold about this relationship. Perhaps you have built a long-held belief that this person is controlling and aggressive which may have been true years ago but may no longer be true in the current moment. Truth at this level reflects the reality of the moment without preconceived biases.
