Our lies cost us life and they rob everyone that is connected to us of truth. The truth of who we are, what we want and what is.
Lie: to make an untrue statement with intent to deceive, to create a false or misleading impression, something said or done in the hope of deceiving : an untrue statement, something that misleads or deceives
True/truth: sincerity in action, character, and utterance, the state of being the case : fact (2) : the body of real things, events, and facts : actuality (3) often capitalized : a transcendent fundamental or spiritual reality, the real facts about something : the things that are true
Authentic: true to one’s own personality, spirit, or character is sincere and authentic with no pretensions
There are two types of people in the world. Those that are committed to being their authentic self and walking in truth and those that are not. Those that are, one day will sit down in honesty and evaluate who they are and where they are. This process invites light into their heart and soul and what does the light do? Expose darkness.
What is darkness? Darkness is devoid or partially devoid of light : not receiving, reflecting, transmitting, or radiating light, not clear to the understanding, unknown, secret. When we live in lies, we live in the dark and everyone else is in the dark with us but once we commit to light, that does not mean others will. They will surely be disappointed and feel betrayed because they will not understand the decisions we are making solely because we choose to stand in the sun and we chose to be free. Read the meaning of true/truth again. Truth is the body of REAL things, events and facts. Real, not what we have made up. Not what we want it to be and certainly not what we have convinced ourselves of. True/truth is the transcendent, fundamental and spiritual reality, the real facts. Living in truth requires honesty, transparency and vulnerability and will certainly demand that we take off the mask and move out of the house built on sand.
Truth is radiant and liberating. Freedom is “the quality or state of being free and the liberation from slavery and restraint or from the power of another”.
Free from the power of the desires of others, the demands of others and the views of others. Free from the bondage and restrictions of lies.
Once we experience freedom, Authentic self awakens and we can feel the sun on our faces and light in our heart. Our critics will either chose to become cheerleaders and find inspiration to begin their own awakening or not. Hopefully all the sun on our faces and in our eyes will compel them to find their truth and stand in their sun.
