We live in a web of lies. There are the lies others tell us and we believe. There are also the lies we tell ourselves. Then there are the lies we tell others which seem to offer a solution to a problem or a way to get what we want. But all lies end in crisis.
What is “crisis” other than the light of truth exposing a lie? If there were no lies to begin with, what crisis could there be? You would live in truth. Truth, by definition, cannot change or be threatened—it cannot lead to crisis, misery or suffering.
To live in peace is to live within the calm safety of truth. When there are no lies anywhere in your life, then you are free. Nothing can threaten you. But, to get there, you’ll have to start eliminating all untruth wherever it may exist in your life. You will need to be perfectly honest with yourself, perfectly honest about whether you believe any of the tired lessons of the world, and perfectly honest in all your communication with everyone.
This shift toward perfect honesty, for a time, will bring about painful changes in your life. This is the undoing of ego, the shedding of all the lies that have kept you suffering. There is no way to awaken to consciousness, to enter the kingdom of heaven, to end your suffering if you do not start with perfect honesty. Anything less than perfect honesty is belief in separation; the idea that you still see some value in keeping yourself apart from the force of life, itself. This is the sickness that we will cure with perfect honesty.
We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
