What is your truth?
Updated: Mar 23
We are all looking for truth, some kind of truth that would just let us know what to do in every circumstance, so we would be safe for the rest of time, preferably, without having to take risks. And when we don't find this definite, life-saving truth, we look everywhere but inside us. We try to find it in rules others created for us, in a normality that others chose for us, in "but everyone does it!" or "we've always done it that way.” I am pretty sure this is will lead us nowhere. I mean, if doing things the way we always have was making the world a better place, I think we would know it by now. And, really "Everyone does it,” WTF?! This is one of the most enraging sentences in the history of earth for me. Everyone is doing bullshit so you'll do the same?!
So what about our own truth? What is true for us now? What is the truth that lives in our souls? If we let go of all the shoulds, and the truths that take us away from ourselves, maybe we could hear it. But it's scary, so we keep looking for truth outside of us, and we stay safe and caged at the same time.We want safety, above pretty much everything else. And our truths are scary, because they are our own, because we are the only one to carry these truths at that point in time. Sometimes, our truth is far away from what we have learned to be or want. Our truth is different from what we expected. Sometimes, our truth is just too big for us. What do we do when what we hear isn't what we want?
Do we still want to stay small? Do you? Do you choose not tell your truth? Not to create that thing, or not to say these words because maybe it'll be too much or not enough? Because it's different from the truth we have learned to like? Will you keep filling up yourself with parts of what makes you come alive? Or will you feed your soul and expand beyond what you thought was possible? We have to make space for our whole truth, as different as it might be, as huge and as scary as we see it. I am sure our individual truths will lead us to Love.What is true for you now? Your truth matters. Say it, live it. Love will be here.
