Love that sentence. Imagine a world where you always knew what the truth is. You’d know the true intention behind the guy who just asked you out, the politics at work and which of your politicians is telling the truth or selling you a lie. Okay, now I’m just dreaming.
How free would that make you? You would then be able to make wise choices in your life instead of learning the hard way. Of course, sometimes you have to learn what you don’t want to find out what you do want but that’s another subject.
If you went into something with the truth fully exposed then you’d have no one else to blame or celebrate for the outcome but you. That is freedom
Freedom is about having choices and being able to act on them, to take the good with the bad for those choices. There is no bail out. It’s taking responsibility for the choices you’ve made, some good and some not so good.
Truth and freedom go hand in hand. The truth frees you. It’s like a release button. You get to release on all the tension, frustration and anxiety that builds up inside when you tell the truth. That’s why confessions are good, and why convicts have to tell someone about what they did. It could be to boost their ego but then again it could be to set their conscious free.
Hmm. Did you ever think of it that way?
