What is your truest truth? That is where we begin.
Are you a conversational shape shifter? Or, when talking about the truth of your life, are you able to say that thing that needs to be said — The thing that is closest to the bone?
When you take action – or inaction, which is also action, by the way – do you know WHY you did or didn’t do that thing? Or do you call it something else?
In other words, are you clear about your motive underneath the motive? Or, are you a bit sneaky? Do you hide what you’re truly trying to achieve under a more socially-acceptable motive?
Here’s an example – do you keep overly busy doing things that are expected of you because these are the things you WANT and NEED to do?
Or, do you do them because what you really want is social approval, to be seen as the “good one,” or to avoid telling yourself the truth – that you’re kinda sort of really unhappy with your life the way it is?
Are you afraid of stopping because you sense that, if you do, the REAL truth – the truest truth – will come rushing out in a flood of gut wrenching despair? Are you running every day just to keep ahead of the ever-encroaching truth about where the choices you have made in life have led you?
They are ALL your choices, by the way.
Anyway, if your daily life is a marathon run from the truth, then I invite you to try this.
When your truest truth catches up to you, when that fear runs right up to you, grab it by the ears, and give that mother a big sloppy wet kiss right on the lips.
The only way out is through, Sweet Pea.
Stop running. Start living.
The one you’re meant to live. Not the one that has been assigned to you. That life is already taken. THAT life has been lived a million times.
But we do need yours. The truest truth of yours.
So, begin now. In the comments below, let us know what ONE falsehood you will relinquish – just for today.
