In today’s climate of political discord, it’s hard to tell what is really the truth. Many times, only part of the truth is told while the rest is spun to deceive the recipient, us.
What ever happened to just telling the truth and letting the chips fall where they may? What makes the authorities not want to tell it like it is? What are they afraid of?
That’s an interesting emotion, fear. To understand why someone wouldn’t tell the truth indicates the person/ organization/party has something to hide. It will hurt them in some way which for me only arouses curiosity. What are they trying to hide?
I believe what the Bible says, the truth shall set you free. By telling or keeping a lie going also is a form of control, control over others or maintaining face. That to me means the group or person is unable to expose their true nature or gets a kick out of controlling others. Neither one is good.
For an individual, there’s a huge emotional release when you allow yourself to release all the lies you’ve lived with. All those years holding the truth back and living the lie within you takes its toll physically, mentally, and emotionally. When you release this negativity, you become accepting of who you are and thereby begin to love your authentic self. I imagine that is the motivating force along with a sense of what’s right why whistleblowers come out. Their sense of what’s right and the emotional release is a breath of fresh air.
Are you holding anything back from telling it like it is?
We all must be vigilant in discovering the truth about our institutions and ourselves. It is only when we are accepting of our truth that we can evolve.
