The Healing Power of Truth

posted by Guy Finley

Don’t be afraid to let the truth strike you. What does this mean? Whether in simple truths like the ones you’re about to read, or in an moment of great personal crisis, don’t fear what life is trying to show you about itself and about you. Welcome it! Yes! Don’t resist anything that threatens to pull the rug out from under your feet. Welcome it! Why? Try to see the wisdom in this. We should be thankful to find out that we are standing in the wrong place!

One example of standing in the “wrong place” is depending upon the undependable within ourselves or others. Then, when the reality of our shaky situation suddenly springs up before our disbelieving eyes and we start to take the fall we get angry, blame-filled, or depressed… which is yet another wrong place to stand, guaranteed to lead to another fall. The point is that we live in a constant struggle to keep everything at arm’s length that doesn’t fit into what we think life is supposed to be about. That’s why I say you mustn’t be afraid to let the truth strike you. It is not dealing the blow that you think it is dealing. Truth always heals, even though it may hurt at first.
