Being in Your Truth
Let Us identify what it means to be in truth.
Let Us identify what it does not mean. It does not mean to tell someone that you don't like the way they dress or part their hair. It is not reforming the world nor expressing your thoughts or preferences at every moment as they occur to you. We are talking about YOUR truth, not what you think about whatever has been going on here and there.
When you are fully established in your truth, when you are fully in it, there will be no need to think about it or find out what it is. You will be there. When you are in that state of awareness called love, you are in your truth. You are not fully there yet. You are closer, but not all the way. Meanwhile, let's find out what brings out that love deep within you and that tells you more about yourself.
As a sovereign self, whirling about in the universe, it behooves you to know what is going on with you. It behooves you to know what is original with you, which thoughts are yours, which have been adopted, and where your heart innocently lies and where it does not, not as analysis, but as a sinking in.
Your truth could be to follow the common sentiments. It could be. But most likely not. Most likely you are a maverick who has not noticed yourself yet. What does your heart like of itself? What makes it happy? Perhaps not all the things you thought, because your heart right now feels errant from itself. Become acquainted with your heart and what it tells you.
We are talking about the inner truth you make yourself aware of. What kind of a creature are you? Who are you when ego is not at play, when conforming is not at play, when truth is the focus and not presentation? Not what is your role in life, not what is your place exactly, but where you are right now in your heart of hearts?
When you are in your truth, there is great calmness. In your truth, you make great peace with yourself. There is no effort when you are in your truth. When you are in your truth, there are no secrets. You do not hide yourself. You do not put a face to the world. You put yourself.
You do not run away from the world. You meet it.
Before you answer a question, you think a moment about what your answer really is. Your answer may not be what it always was. You may have no answer. You may have only question.
No matter how far away from your inner truth you may have been, swing around to it now.
This is not a revolt. This is not abandoning anything and striking out. It is simply noting yourself and going on from there. It is simply picking yourself up now. And, as much as you are able, reflecting light, with thought only of noting where your heart is right now and giving it its due.
This doesn't mean to never do what you don't like, but it does mean not to get in the habit of it. It means not to go so much by protocol, or at least to know when you are.
When you take a bath, for example, take it not because you must, not because it is expected of you, but take it for the pure joy of water, for the pure joy of a few moments splashing about, being you, enjoying the moments of you in a tub. Enjoy you.
