Why do we fear saying the truth, stating clearly what it is that we need to say. What are we afraid of? What consequence could possibly outweigh being unhappy?
Is this the norm? Should we all just put our heads down and carry on … like sheep; literally!
I am not entirely sure that I am able to do that. Because there is something inside me that drives me towards truth. I am compelled to seek it out, push it to the limits until I know truth ... whatever the cost.
Are there consequences for people that seek truth to such an extreme measure? I can safely say that the answer to that question is probably yes! But why? The answer is simple. There are people in this world that don't want to hear the truth. In fact, there are some that hide from it, run from it, avoid it all all costs … no matter what! But why?
Truth defines us. It gives us direction. It is unquestionable, it cannot be challenged, it is undoubtable, unmovable and clear. But yet, some fear it. Why?
Those that fear truth must have something to hide. Something that only truth can reveal. What other explanation is there? Nothing comes to mind.
So if they have something to hide, one must surmise that they have done something wrong. What other explanation can there be? None.
So in a way, facing truth is like facing oneself. Facing up to the wrongdoings that have been done. Facing up to the consequences for those wrongdoings, and not fearing them.
This is virtuous, character-building and truly uplifting once executed.
Who wouldn't want these traits … ?
