The Truth Can Be So Comforting

Hello Unity Friends and Family,
“The Truth Can Be So Comforting”

I experienced such relief on the day I found out that Truth is what can’t be changed.  Knowing that, I could surrender my agenda of trying to make that which isn’t is.  When I remember that Truth is always going to be True and I can’t undo that, I can then surrender to love and stop trying to create enemies.  

My teachers showed me that Love is the reality and while I don’t always understand Love and it’s certainly not what I thought it was, I believe in it, and rather than trying to change Love, I work at seeing it and accepting it without exception.  Sometimes it’s easy and…

I find great comfort in KNOWING the Truth.  I love that I cannot change the true nature of myself or yourself.  I can pretend otherwise, but I cannot change it or alter it in any way except through my imagination.  

I have spent a lot of time resisting what is and a lot more time trying to make things not have happened.  Some of us “adults” spend a lot of our day trying to make our childhood not have happened.  I used to do that until I was reminded by a wise person, “I have had enough of sitting around waiting for a good childhood.”  I woke up that day and decided to recreate the meaning of my childhood because there was no way I was ever going to make the facts not have happened.  What I did was go into prayer and ask for the real meaning of my past.  The answer I got was that I needed every bit of that childhood in order to be who I am now and now is good.  If anything had been one bit different, I couldn’t have this good.  Those people were no longer tormenting me, so I needed to stop tormenting myself by thinking I was somehow defective because that abuse happened.  It happened, I don’t know why, but now I can use it for great healing in myself and the world around me.  Every now and then I still wish I could go back to ten year old me and hit a couple of those adults with a big stick, but then I come to my senses again and get grateful for now.  At the very least, I have a lot of colorful stories.  At best, I can have empathy for another and pass along some healing information.  (And perhaps do a comedy act.)  

I am grateful every day of my life that no matter how frequently I may forget or no matter how I might try to resist, Truth is always going to be True.  Love is always going to be Love and you and I are always going to be Good.

Now that is some good news.

Blessings, Blessings, Blessings,
