Are you lying to yourself? Are you living a lie? Do you practice what you preach? I guess we all have our moments but I see some people who talk, talk, talk, about how they meditate, how they practice gratitude and forgiveness or whatever the case may be! But I see their lives, I know who they are to me or who they seem to be to the world and it is not in sync with what they preach.
I consider it a blessing to have these people in my life, or in view of my life. Why? Because it reminds me what I do not want to do. How I do not want to live my life. It keeps me aware and careful! More careful of how I live and what I say or write about. I need to walk my talk.
Remember, even the people who rub you the wrong way or push all your buttons are here for a reason. Even if that reason is to remind us how not to live our life!
The worst lies are the ones we tell our self! Just because you say the right words and claim enlightenment doesn’t mean it is so.
Start living your truth! If you do not like what your truth is, then maybe it is time to write your new story and stick to it! Be honest about the procrastination, the well intended but unfulfilled goals. The lies you tell yourself about who you are or what you want. You need to start being honest with yourself.
The moment you get honest with yourself is the moment you start a new chapter in your life!
You say you are an honest person. You claim enlightenment. Yet, you say YES, when you mean NO. Are those characteristics of an honest person? You say you are OK, when you are not. You say you are not offended, when you are. YOU are willing to lose a relationship because YOU can’t be honest about your feelings.
So, who is honest again? Be honest. Be authentic. Don’t claim to be…JUST BE. Your actions tell the real story !
