Today I’m going to uncover some truths that I believe will set you free, if you believe them. The truth is what we believe. But what if you’re believing something that’s not true?
Here are some truths about TRUTH:
#1: What do you believe? Look at your own personal beliefs.
What do you believe about ___(fill in the blank)__?
But what if “that” is not the truth?
This is how you’ll know if what you’re believing is TRUE…
KNOWLEDGE OF IT WILL SET YOU FREE.
That’s right, knowledge of the truth is what sets us free.
If you’re not living in freedom in any area of your life, then what you’re believing is NOT true.
Do you KNOW what you believe?
Most people are not living in freedom, yet still claim that what they believe is true.
Look at what you believing today.
If you’re believing something that’s not setting you free, OR you’re not getting the results you’re looking for, OR you’re not feeling that loving, peaceful, valuable experience of life, then it’s time to take a look at some of your beliefs.
#2: If it can’t be interpreted at least two different ways, it’s probably not true.
Truth is not one-sided. It’s multi-dimensional. It’s inclusive. It’s not exclusive. It’s very inclusive.
Truth IS. There’s no judgement on/in it. It’s not right. It’s not wrong. It simply IS.
If you want to experience the freedom of truth, you must step into it.
You can see truth from two different places. From one side it may look one way, then move 180 degrees around to the other side, and it can look very different.
Is it still the truth? Yes, it is.
Perhaps…maybe…truth’s IN the one that’s looking at it?
So if you’re deceived, no matter what you’re seeing, you’re not going to believe it.
You could be looking at the truth, and not even recognize it as the truth. It’s KNOWLEDGE of the truth that’ll set you free.
This is happening all over the globe.
What is true for you? What do you believe?
Look at it from both sides of the sphere.
Truth can be interpreted more than one way, and it’s in the eye of the beholder.
What you see and believe, may or may not be the truth. But if you know and believe THE TRUTH, you’ll find freedom. It’ll set you free.
People want to make truth all about one way or the right way, and everything else wrong.
Life is like a big circular sphere…the world…globe. The sun shines on both sides, but at different times.
The globe is the truth. How are you seeing it? It depends on where you’re standing.
What side of the world are YOU standing on in your own life?
If you’re not seeing the truth, you won’t find freedom.
#3: What if the truth isn’t necessarily what you see, but it’s the LIGHT that’s shining upon the metaphorical globe or sphere that you hold in your hands?
What if the reason why knowledge of the truth sets us free is because IT allows us to see something?
It’s the LIGHT that allows us to see something we didn’t see before.
Now that the light’s on, you can see things you didn’t see before. No longer is it a “right or wrong” scenario, but it IS…and then you can take a good look at it. You can experience it, and find your freedom in it.
Stop deceiving yourself. Stop lying. Stop hiding. Stop believing something that’s no longer true for you, or perhaps never was.
Look at what you believe today, and ask yourself if your beliefs are allowing you to live in freedom and peace.
Is there another way to see it?
Is it possible that truth isn’t “IT” at all, but it’s the light that you shine upon it?
Why? So you can KNOW some things you didn’t know before.
Perhaps knowledge of this is what will allow you to be set free from whatever you’re dealing with today.
Be willing to see whatever it is with the lights completely on today. No more hiding. No more standing on the other side of truth. Stand where you are…with the light of truth.
Love in that place.
If there’s something you don’t like, do something about it.
If you want change in your life, you must be willing to change.
Turn the knob. Flip the switch, and turn the lights on.
Be willing to expose it all.
You can handle the truth.
I believe you can.
Turn the LIGHT OF TRUTH on in your life, and watch what happens.
It’s time to start living in truth, and living in freedom.
Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E.JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage with yourself.)
TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:
1. Write down an area in your life that you’ve been hiding. Keeping in the dark? Ashamed? Worried? Confused? Lying? Cheating? Whatever it is…
2. Literally go stand out in the sun, and allow it to shine upon the words in your journal. Then ask yourself if you’re willing to see “IT” differently.
Are you willing to allow the light of truth to shine upon it, so you can see it for what it is, and make decisions in truth, versus deception.
Does this make sense to you?
I really believe this is going to help you today. I hope you discover some beliefs that are simply NOT true, NOT working for you, or setting you free…and you make choices today.
So you can walk in truth and live your life in freedom.
