We must always tell the truth, because it’s the right thing to do. It’s also good for our health. We must always tell the truth so that we don’t spiral into a world of deceit. We must always 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 can never know whether we have truth. It takes courage to tell the truth, particularly if we think we may hurt another person’s feelings. When we don’t tell the truth, those non-truths will come back.
But sadly, not everyone is emotionally ready to hear the truth and that’s what makes our task impossible. It’s not that what we’re saying is wrong, but that what we’re saying is not always ready to be received.
My mum always told the truth. She would rather hear the truth than be lied to even if hearing the truth proved difficult. But when we live without truth, we’re in denial of what the truth is. Telling the truth will always make us vulnerable and open to criticism.
But truth and honesty are the epitome of life. It is what life should be about and is right because it fits in with what the universe expects of us. It’s also the building blocks on our integrity and helps builds on the foundation for us to live with peace in our lives. Truth also helps with spiritual growth.
Having nothing to hide is much easier than hiding everything and getting caught out. Truth ultimately gives us the freedom to express ourselves and be ourselves.
