Personal achievement: Discover the gift of a brave heart


PERSONAL-ACHIEVEMENT-The higher truth means that even though we do not see clearly that something magnificent is about to happen as we go through a difficult period of transition in life, the higher truth holds a gift. Hidden in a seemingly disastrous event, the higher truth keeps a gift for you, me and humanity at large. It is no coincidence that we have the expression ‘a blessing in disguise’. I would like to say that the higher truth is equal to a blessing in disguise as it is God’s plan, the divine agenda that will always be for the good of life and for us all.

So, if it is not all right, it is not the end of the world. That is why this year reminds us all that reality goes far beyond fiction. The Hollywood dreams have finally moved into the mainstream reality of our daily lives. Wow, how exciting could it be? Let us all hold our fingers crossed for more truth and pray that the good, the true and the beautiful will prevail. Let us all breathe to the drum beat of truth as we reclaim our birthright to breathe freely, deeply and lovingly.

So, why is it then that truth is so far out of reach? It is worth reflecting on the love of truth versus the fear of lies. Or should we call it the love of lies? Paradoxically, this has been one of the central enigmas to crack this year for anyone interested in human psychology. Why do we, as humans, love and attach to lies more than we love and stick to the truth? A tough question to answer as most people who cling to – and love – lies believe those lies to be true. Or at least it is a soothing place to rest your thoughts, your life and your breath in the hands of others.

Why is it then that there is more security and a sense of comfort in giving your all to a source of lies outside yourself? And why is it that so many people reject, curse, condemn and are even outraged by the freedom embedded in any truth? Could it be as simple as that in lies there is fear, and in truth there is love? I would like to say that yes, this is a simple truth. We have been programmed, conditioned, fed by fear for so long that we feel the safest in fear. It is as if fear contains security. It is as if you embrace fear you are safe from danger.

On the other hand, truth is a whole other scenario. Truth is a rare commodity, and we have not been accustomed to the truth. The truth has been hidden, mystified, cursed, made ugly, and, most of all, the truth is unknown territory. Anything unknown makes us feel shaky and unsafe. The irony is that the truth is so rare that we do not know the hidden gift it holds, the most magnificent gift of all, the gift of a brave heart. So, let us all raise our voices and call out for a world free of lies. Let us join the chorus of freedom
