Truth. Isn’t that what we all want? Good or bad, just give me the truth. Everything else will fall in place, the clutter and drama will fade away and I will deal with it. The problem is how to discern truth from illusion. How do I know what to believe?
If only life were that simple. Truth in this world falls into 2 categories. Absolute truth and each individual’s truth. Welcome to the world of free will. Absolute truth is easy. When measured by eternity, only those things that do not change are absolute. Everything else is illusion.
My big three absolute truths are 1) we are all children of God/Source, every single one of us. 2) We are without sin. Full stop. Sin is a concept created by humanity. I am continually amazed by the creative ways humanity devises to punish itself. 3) God/Source is not complete without each and every one of us. This is the big one, no matter how lost you may be, no matter where you may hide, God is not complete without you. You will not be left behind.
Now, as for everything else……..
We all have free will and are therefore free to choose our own path and find our “truth” in this existence. Speaking and living your truth can be liberating. However, to find your truth you must step away from the ego and the drama it creates. Your Higher Self, your True Self, patiently waits for you to find your truth free of your ego. If you listen to the quiet voice within your being, you will know your truth. The ego shouts and bangs its fist on the table. Your True Self will quietly tell you the path to take. Meditation will help you recognize the voice of your True Self.
Try the following for just one day. If you like it, try it for a second day and then a third. Just one day at a time. Not as a chore to push through, but as a break from the stress of all the decisions that you must deal with throughout the day. Give the responsibility of every single decision, no matter how small to your True Self. Listen for the answer and accept it, regardless of whether you think it is the right decision.
As soon as you wake up to start your day, do nothing without the direction of your True Self (TS). Close your eyes and go within. Silently ask for direction with every decision as they come up. Should I have a cup of coffee, read the paper, check emails, social media, everything. Don’t do anything without TS giving you direction. Clear your mind. Wait for the answer. Should I take a shower, what clothes should I wear, the red one or the blue one? Everything.
Imagine yourself watching the show called your life. Give all responsibility for everything to TS. Some decisions will seem to be bad ones, do it anyway. Trust TS completely to guide you through the day. The need to judge no longer exist. Drop all judgements, just observe as if you are watching a play through a window. Synchronicities will begin to happen. Decisions will line up that will place you where you need to be and opportunities will be created. Small ones at first, but as you learn to trust the direction of TS, the flow of energy that represents you in this existence will begin to balance. Life will get easier. You will have all the time you need. As an added bonus, if something bad happens, its not your fault, blame TS!
Don’t like TS calling the shots? No big deal, just stop asking for direction. Free will is yours. However, the road to an easier life, a more balanced existence without all the drama is through TS. Listen for that small still voice of TS. It is there, waiting for you to ask for direction.
