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,
