Truth

Posted on May 7, 2009 - Filed Under self reflect

The synchronicity of messages when you are on a life’s journey is fascinating when you are willing to take them in your hand and look at them. Monica just posted a recent find from a fortune cookie and I loved the message she claimed as the universe’s call to her. And despite the fact that she may say to me, “Hey you copied!” (as sister’s often complain) I will argue in my favor that instead I was inspired to simply watch for the messages that might emerge.
During the last few weeks I have been commenting on other people’s blogs about speaking one’s truth. It has been a theme with many… finding one’s self in the world. And even today, as I dealt with profound levels of self-doubt, self-appreciation, anxiety, exhaustion, self-criticism… self-awareness… it was all about struggling against (or with) my truth for a clearer understand of who I am.
I got home, exhausted. My head is pounding… conversation with a friend on the phone left me spinning with even more levels of awareness and longing… As I heated the water for a hot cup of tea, I quietly released a tea bag into my palm and stole a glance at the message.

“Recognize that you are the truth”

It has always been there. My truth isn’t something that I have to look for endlessly, like a lost sock or a missing earing. I need not call out to it like a desperate climber at then end of her rope, hoping for the others to hear. If I simply get quiet, all that is truth exists with me. In my breath, in my energy, in my soul… it is here.

I found I was a little less exhausted with myself.

    I find that I know my truth, but it is so unwilling to express itself for fear of the consequences. So what is one to do with that yearning to be who one is?
    I get so much by reading my daughters blogs. Thank you hija mia.
