THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE
It’s so cliché. But then again, clichés exist for a reason. They point to that which is consistent in the human experience.
But, here’s the deal … I believe every time you tell a fib, big or small, it is something as dramatic as a stain on your soul. Less dramatic, it is teaching you that you are unreliable. That you can’t trust yourself. And that others can’t trust you.
To your spouse, your friends, your clients, in an email, to protect yourself from having screwed up or not followed through, the stories you tell about who you have been and the little lies you tell yourself every day.
I’m going to; Workout. Not drink alcohol. Eat well. Drink water. Stretch. Make my phone calls. Clean up my shit/get organized. Follow through for my clients. Give and receive love … And on, and on, and on.
Traffic is terrible, that’s why I’m late. My kid got sick, that’s why I didn’t make it. The other agent screwed up, that’s why you are having this experience.
It’s an epidemic in our society and one that is way worse than any virus. It’s from leaders and citizens alike and it has become institutionalized.
AND … it must change. Because, it’s killing us.
Lies rob us of freedom. Lies rob us of community. Lies rob us of faith in self and others. Lies, big or small rip at the fabric of beauty in the human experience.
What if today, you tried something new? Just for today. Tomorrow you can make a new decision.
I WILL ONLY COMMUNICATE AND LIVE BY TRUTH
Every word that comes out of my mouth, typed as a text, written as an email or thought in my big ole brain, will be the truth.
I will act on all my promises. I will own responsibility for all my actions. I will no longer make false claims about myself or my actions.
Just for one day.
Be careful not to expect the same of others. They aren’t on your journey. They don’t see what you see.
Maybe, once you discover the beauty of truth unconditionally in your life, you’ll endeavor to inspire others through what you’ve discovered.
If you really want to “spice it up”, try truth WITH compassion. It’s a pretty special way to live.
