The Gift of Truth
T.S. Elliot, one of the great 20th century poets once wrote: ‘Humankind cannot bear very much reality’. I am sure that all of us have experienced a number of occasions throughout our lives when we hid the truth from ourselves, rather than face it.
I wonder why it is so difficult to accept reality and make the necessary changes? Truth is a gift as it opens the door for new life. After all, choosing to stay stuck in unhealthy relationships and situations is harmful. The emotional price we pay as a result can be very high indeed.
Have we allowed ourselves to be conditioned and imprisoned by the belief that we must focus on our fears, rather than on the liberating truth?
I wonder how much potential for growth can be unlocked to serve our planet more effectively by facing the truth. Perhaps it is time to honour and celebrate the most precious and life changing gift of truth, whilst unlocking still hidden divine treasures that lie within.
Our fears can keep us imprisoned in an invisible paddock with our heads down, mulling things over and going around in circles. They never allow us to escape from old and destructive habits, until one day we dare to unwrap the gift of TRUTH.
