It’s a life skill that takes years of work to become comfortable with expressing in the presence of others. Through the use of this truth however, the world external to oneself starts to transform. People you meet begin standing up to face you, life force to life force. They become more truthful in the presence of you speaking your truth. Unlocking this realm of life opens a whole new playing field of meaningful human interactions to flourish.
By speaking your truth you will naturally align with other truth seekers and speakers. Speaking your truth means living with integrity. Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationship with yourself, the Earth and others. If you value receiving integrity, you must first find the courage to give it.
Suppression of truth, is like suppression of spirit. We’re left feeling like we’ve left a part of our deepest being swept under the rug. The longer we live without speaking up, the more it’s weight bares down upon us. It is true you may lose people around you for daring to speak out about something you feel, deep down is right but more importantly you will attract and liberate the people you need to be around. By doing this you become a lighthouse of strength for others who dare to speak up about things they truly care about. Together with these people you can and will begin to harmoniously move towards a better, more truthful future.
I’m curious to know however, what you think prevents most people from speaking their truth?
