We must always tell the truth, because it’s right. We tell the truth so that we don’t spiral into a world of deceit. We tell the truth so we will never have to doubt and question ourselves or other people. With truth, we will always have trust, but without trust we will never know whether we have truth.
It takes courage to tell the truth, particularly if we think we may hurt another’s feelings. When we don’t tell the truth, those things tend to come back. Unfortunately, not everyone is emotionally ready to hear the truth and that’s what makes our task impossible. It’s not that what we say is wrong, but that what we say is not always ready to be received by the other person.
My mum always told the truth. She would rather hear the truth than be lied to, even if hearing the truth proved difficult for her. When we live without truth, we’re in denial of the truth. Telling the truth will always make us vulnerable and open to criticism from the people whom we’re trying to be truthful with.
Truth and honesty is the epitome of life. Is what life should be about and is right because it fits in with the Universal Laws. It’s also the building blocks our integrity and builds the foundation for us to have peace in our lives. Truth and honesty helps with spiritual growth and helps us build trust with others.
Finally, I have always believed that having nothing to hide is so much easier than hiding everything and getting caught out. Truth ultimately gives us the freedom to be ourselves and with others.
