We often wonder what is life, what is worth living for, if there is ever a truth behind everything, if this truth is relative, universally confirmed, objective or subjunctive.
As to discover the truth no matter what level, we practically need to develop a sense of presence, of awareness.
But, are we really present when, for example, we lose our patience and common sense, we produce a car accident on the high-way, when we behave aggressively in words and actions or when we throw a sharp judgement on someone?
A person with presence is an observer both of self and the environment. And an observer is always curious, has a critical thinking all the way in seeking the truth.
When one starts this journey, they will notice along the way that we all face a universal truth, valid and put out there as to be reached. But in parallel, we also face our own individual truth that brings to life the person we really are, it discovers our fears and desires, shortcomings, talents and values.
Most of the time, even if we urge in meeting this `guest`, we welcome it with a certain amount of resistance because we feel we instantly become vulnerable, we fear disappointments, disputes and inferiority.
The result? Building on an inner world full of sorrow, frustrations, pains, dissimulation as well as a kind of wishful desire in reaching the courage we naturally need. It comes a time when this overload is suffocating and hard to handle.
So, why is it better to speak up your truth no matter how hard and no matter the situation?
- In this mist of confusion, you find the courage to speak up even if your voice shakes and you immediately spread this vibe of encouragement around you.
- You become lighter physically and emotionally ... you erase the burden
- You exclude duality and hypocrisy
- You clear your mind and conscience
- You overcome fear and shame
- You learn to be direct in an assertive way
- You give an example and inspire the others
- You give advice and you may save lives
- You create adventure and you attract good on your side
- You open one`s eyes and save difficult situations/circumstances
- You look in the mirror, you find yourself and start enjoying and loving life for real
- You get to truly reach people, engaging in interesting and productive dialogues
- You claim your rights and make justice
- You become your own life creator
- You bring contribution to the universal values
In the end, finding and speaking up your truth is both painful and constructive, but it`s surely having a positive long term result. When you take the risk of not heading towards your truth, you can only remain with pain and regrets.
