The Secret Truth

When we build a wall around our very soul, can it be called a prison? Prisons are made to keep people in—but they are built by others. But a wall built one brick at a time by us isn’t  a prison—It’s a place we hide.

Each brick placed slowly in place over the years. Bricks made of fear, of worry, of tragedy, and desperation—before long we’ve built four walls of loneliness where we hide away from the rest of the world.

We leave no doorway for others to enter—out of fear that they may hurt us. But when we do this we lose our ability to escape, to know love, and gain nourishment from the joy of others. We become trapped in a tormented world of isolation.

There is a secret door way however, this doorway can be found in the truth, and that truth is…

What is your truth? Only you have the key to unlock that door.

The Voice of Truth

The inner critical voice tells only lies; it whispers, it tempts, and speaks with such authority that you are tempted by its deception. Fear not this voice, this deceiver of man— it knows not who you truly are.  Begin to silence this voice by listening to your authentic self—the essence of who you are, which speaks in the form of intuition—this is the voice of truth. It knows you well.

” How am I going to live today in order to create the tomorrow I’m committed to.”  Tony Robbins

Are you committed to your dreams?  What are they?  What are you doing today to make sure those dreams become a reality?

I dream of becoming a better writer, in hopes of one day getting published.   So, today I practiced writing.

Tell me your dreams….
