Truth Will Set You Free
Our mind has a tendency to repeat the same problems in our minds, rehearse it over and over again. Especially when we have an incomplete communication with somebody from our past. We usually think what we should have said and done.
Some of us have clutters in our lives, on our desks, in cupboards, in drawers and in our bedrooms. Those clutters take away our life energy and don’t let us think sharp and be creative. We also have a clutter in our minds, clutter of thoughts. When people think too many disempowering thoughts, they result in depression and anxiety.
How to clear your mind?
Write a list of people you have incomplete communication with. There could be some conflicts or offenses in the past that have not been resolved. Talk to those people and tell them everything that is on your mind, forgive, ask for forgiveness and let go. We cannot change the past, but we can be at peace with it. Peace comes from forgiveness.
Write a list of people you lied to/still lying to. Talk to those people and tell them the truth. The truth will set you free from the prison of your own thoughts. You can be happy only when you live in truth and authenticity. This is an ancient wisdom that improved lives of millions and millions of people.
Are you authentic to the society or you always pretend you are someone you are not? Majority of people pretend they are victims. For example: I have been lying to myself that I was shy. That lie made me act as if I was shy. The truth is that you are whoever you choose to be. Everyone of us is open, kind and loving, all the rest are barriers our mind makes up to make us feel separate from others. We all have infinite capacities if we don’t lie to ourselves. I told the truth to myself that I am whoever I choose to be. What is your personal lie? Tell the truth to yourself and this is the first step to openness and happiness.
This process will take courage. People who live happy and extraordinary lives exercise courage several times every day. Once you let all the suppressed feelings, thoughts and emotions out, you will transform yourself and your life. Clear and peaceful mind is the biggest gift you can give to yourself.
