How do you know what is true?

Have you noticed the current state of the world today?  We are constantly bombarded with so much information every day from television, social media, radio, friends, family, work colleagues, the news, not to mention that our phones are very rarely out of our hands.

There are so many opinions, statistics, theories, arguments, people with strong points of views of what is right and wrong, spiritual teachings, religions, and dare I mention conspiracy theories!

While we swim in this cesspool, how do you ever distinguish the truth?

How do you know what is true for you?

How do you know what is a lie?

First off, a very quick indicator is:

What is true for you is what is light for you. It lights you up, it has that expansive, joyful feeling. Like when you think about being out in nature, or swimming in the ocean or the sun kissing your skin. Is that light? That is what is true for you.

What is a lie for you is what is heavy. It’s got a sticky, dense feeling. Think of an argument you had with your loved one, if it’s heavy, it was a lie. You may have been fighting about something based on a lie.

The truth of you, the essence of you is light. You know those days, where you wake up and you feel grateful to be alive, the day flows with ease, you are enjoying yourself, that is YOU.

Then you go online, you read some article or something pops up on your Facebook feed and you start to feel heavy. You get angry or frustrated or even start to feel anxious. That heaviness is some lie that you are aware of. If it’s heavy it is NOT you. It’s not yours.

You have to start asking when things feel heavy:

~What is the lie here spoken or unspoken?

~What am I aware of?

~What’s light is what is true for you. If it’s not light, it’s not true for you.

~Acknowledging what is a lie for you will sometimes give you a sense of relief in your world and take away that sticky, heavy feeling.

Also, please remember that what is true for you may not be true for someone else. You only know what is light and true for you. It’s not your job to go around telling everyone what is a lie. Know what you know and follow what is true for you.

Wouldn’t the world be so much easier if we all just claimed what was true and light for us and created our life from that place, instead of buying into the heaviness and lies of anyone else reality.
