HONESTY MONTH: DAY 20: “One of the few things in life that cannot possibly do harm in the end is the honest pursuit of the truth.”― Peter Kreeft

Truth is an interesting concept. My truth may not be your truth. We all get to live into our own with honesty and truth. What may have been true for me 3 days ago can shift today.

That means that I cannot tell you the complete truth. Ever. Most of the time, truth is an opinion, which is going to be based on my view of things, my experience, my state of mind in that moment, and where I sit on any given day.

That is all subject to change in the batting of an eye.

Therefore, I believe that we all get to find and live our own truths, to the best of our abilities every day. This is a constant process, delving deeper into our own souls for what resonates with us. Very difficult to do, because few people I have ever met know how to access their souls instead of their minds, which are governed by Ego.

If we consistently seek (honest pursuit) the truth, we will find it more often than not. When we are doing this process of working continuously with these steps, we will be rewarded by learning what our truths are.

It is very important to truly understand the fleeting nature of any truth. If it doesn’t change constantly, it is not truth. Simple, huh?

How often do you relate the story? If it has lasted more than a few days, it isn’t truth? I have learned this formula for my own journey. What was true for me even a week ago is new again today. It has shifted and grown and morphed into a new dynamic in every way. I love that. I have new views all the time. This, for me, is the very essence of recovery and developing a powerful spiritual life.
