You're Allowed to Speak Your Truth
“Well, if you want to sing out, sing out
And if you want to be free, be free
'cause there's a million things to be
You know that there are"
In the last post 'Just Do More of What You Love' I wrote about the benefits of accepting yourself for exactly who you are and embracing the path that opens up before you. Doing that can be quite a challenge in itself but there is another thing that happens that adds complications to the task.
You see most people have been indoctrinated into believing that they CAN'T do and be who they want. Most people have been brought up to believe that they HAVE to do certain things and that they HAVE to fit in. That the dominant paradigm is RIGHT and if they don't fit in then they are WRONG.
The best thing about this (sorry for the sarcasm) is that they way people are indoctrinated, as children naturally, is through GUILT!
Don't you love it? Fit in or people will make you feel BAD - like there is something WRONG with you!
Doesn't even have to be words spoken - can be a roll of the eyes, a sigh or a shake of the head. But the message is unmistakable "Oh my God what is WRONG with you?"
So, here's my message to you - YOU'RE ALLOWED TO SPEAK YOUR TRUTH!
Making people WRONG gets us nowhere and simply traps us all in an endless tautological merry-go-round from which there is no escape. Making people WRONG presses people's buttons, traps them and us inside the box and limits us all to a narrow view of the World that blinds us to enlightened possibilities.
TRUTH spoken from the heart is the gateway to a higher reality and the fastest path to a more enlightened future.
Thinking that you KNOW everything simply makes you a self righteous fool!
The World really is a mystery.

In this time of change be brave enough to speak your truth about how you feel. Don't let others make you feel bad, wrong or guilty because you go against the majority. Understand that most people are simply trying to get you to agree with their version of what is right so they can feel more confident that it is so.
You're allowed to speak your truth and so are they.
