and Be Brave enough to stare down what you know to be “truth” in the eyes and do battle.
I believe that finding truth in this world is a journey. But the first part of the journey is to do the above that is counter intuitive to any “journey”:
First you must STOP.
You must STOP – and then you must see, observe and truly THINK.
And once you explore where you find yourself and your THOUGHTS – you must BE BRAVE enough to do battle with everything you know/have known to be true, even if it doesn’t land where you thought it would.
So yes, I am going to Be Brave enough to Stop and start over on this blog with a blank canvas and apply the above practice as I continue this journey.
Here are a wide variety of thoughts on truth from various perspectives that you might have never heard before:
The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable.
–James A. Garfield
The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.
–John F. Kennedy
Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear.
There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.
Stay tuned, and again, welcome to this journey we call life. Hope you live it well today.
