The surprising truth

January 27, 2019

Truth surprises you.
It won’t be how you expected it to be, nor what you wanted it to look like. And it might come from unexpected places.

The truth will shock you first, make you want to look away. Then, it’ll slowly change you. It will cut into the deepest parts of you to get to your core and your essence.

Are you willing to accept it, no matter what? Even if it doesn’t fit in with your plans? Even if it might look like it breaks your world and who you thought you are into pieces? – If it’s breakable, it wasn’t real to begin with.

It might turn out that what the truth broke was but the glass walls of the prison you put yourself in, imagining it’s a safe and cozy palace. And it might turn out that the mirror you were holding in front of you was just distorting your image and limiting your vision.

If you have the courage to pursue truth, you’ll soon discover that what it destroyed didn’t matter after all. It was just dust, blocking the light to your real self and holding back the touch of God.

The little things

August 9, 2018

Sometimes a small, insignificant thing happens. And it makes you see everything so much clearer – the person, the past …

You get flashbacks of all the clues you’ve had over time. In front of your eyes. And you wonder, how come I didn’t see this before? Was I stupid?

No. You were just in your own story, believing a tale you created for yourself. For the comfort of your mind. For the peace.

You dwelled on it. You clung onto it as long as you could, pretending it was alive.

Until you couldn’t anymore because it was too dead; and it had already started to stink.
