Unstoppable

20 May

People are very creative and inventive. We can come up with all kinds of ideas and explanations for whatever is happening and spin endless tales. If we’ve done something untoward or dishonest we don’t want others to see, we may create an explanation that skirts the facts and makes us look innocent, clearing us of any wrongdoing. Well, we can say anything we like, and we may fool those around us for a time, but truth is more powerful than whatever we may come up with. We may try to hide the facts, manipulate the data, use mirrors and screens to disguise what’s real, and that may delay reality for a while, but nothing, absolutely nothing can hold truth back forever. It is unstoppable and will inevitably rise and become apparent. It may take a while to surface, years even, and at some point, we may believe we have successfully circumvented it, but we will be wrong. Truth is the most powerful thing in life. Nothing can keep it from showing itself. If we’ve covered something up, it will be revealed. If we’ve lied, we will be found out. It’s just a matter of time. There is no way to hide it forever, and when it shows itself, any lies or fabrications will be uncovered. Hiding just delays the inevitable. There isn’t anything worth forsaking our integrity for. The truth may be painful, embarrassing, or even momentarily crippling, but when we face it, we can begin the process of correcting whatever has gone wrong. Nobody is perfect. We all make mistakes from time to time. If we’ve fallen down and made a mess, we can stand and clean it up. By being truthful with those around us, we will gain credibility and trust. Each choice defines who we are, and we have the power to change the world for good. We can make excellent choices that enrich our lives and bring light to those around us.

We may use distractions and diversions to try to hide something we’ve done. We can tangle our lives up with lies and dishonesty to try and bury the truth or buy time to cover it up, but it won’t work indefinitely. Lies are always laid bare, and we will be exposed. We are brave enough to face anything that’s happened and choose the best road forward. By being completely honest we’ll pave the road ahead to success.

Relationships are important, and if we’re involved with others when mistakes are made, they may pressure us to keep it hidden. We can do anything we like but if we go along with the subterfuge, guilt may weigh heavily on us. If we look someone in the eye and lie, our virtue and integrity will suffer greatly. There is no relationship worth selling our souls for. We have enough courage and strength to stand up for what’s right and choose honesty no matter what has happened.

Today if you’ve been trying to hide from something you’ve done and have been distorting facts to try and escape, stop and think again. You are amazing and valuable, and worth more than you can imagine. Your personal integrity is precious. Choose honesty and step forward with clarity and wisdom. Every dream is possible, and by choosing well, you will reach success.
