Ground Truth.

I was triggered by this video from The Ocean Cleanup:

Sometimes we need an expedition in our life to find our ground truth, this can take time and research and sometimes may shake your current assumptions.

So tell me what is your ground truth? What is your bedrock on which you build and live your life.

Is it science and the quest for knowledge?

Is it family?

Religion maybe?


Or health?


Now we all need a ground truth, a foundation to build upon. This is also the case for the crew from The Ocean Cleanup who are cleaning the ocean, which is awesome. I challenge you to discover yours.

I did.
My conclusion….. it’s a book you might know called the Bible.

The most popular verse from it:

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

This is my foundation.

Luke 8:11
