When I am reading, or hearing things said on the TV that are not true
- Do I just sit back and say nothing?
- Does it matter that I know things are being said that are not truthful?
I recently saw an ad on TV that I felt was not appropriate, using sex to sell a product. In that moment, I decided to call and make a complaint. I didn’t put it off until later as I probably would have forgotten. By choosing to take responsibility and speak my truth, I then made a difference and was heard.
It is a HUGE responsibility for all of us to take ownership of the whole picture and the part we play by expressing in each moment what we feel is our truth.
This felt big to own up and take responsibility for my part, and to feel the different ways that lies have existed in my life. It is easy to talk about truth, and to gloss over it with words, but by speaking up and taking responsibility for every word I utter, I am choosing to be responsible for my part.
While I was not expressing what I really felt in full, I was choosing to not claim my truth, the whole truth, myself. Everything I don’t say is as important and relevant as everything I do say.
This exposed to me how I thought I didn’t lie. I thought that I didn’t intentionally choose to lie because I kept quiet about how I really felt about a situation, but what has been empowering for me is to claim that a lie is a lie – equally so when unspoken. And a lie is a lie if it is 80% a lie or 1% a lie. This made me look at lying from a different point of view. What if when I don’t choose to express, and hold back from saying what I really feel, that this is also adding to all the lies in the world?
By us all taking responsibility for speaking our truth, we have the potential to change the world. We have always been taught that love is about being nice, but what if love is delivering truth?
When we are choosing to speak truth we are delivering love – in an absolute way.
I would have never come to this realisation and accepted responsibility for speaking my truth and my part in the whole picture if it wasn’t for having discovered Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. I am now taking responsibility for my part in the whole picture, and my part doesn’t end with me . . . we are all connected.
