Monday’s feel like a good day to explore further the message that the weekend’s oracle provides for the days ahead, so hang with me to unlock the reason why the truth is so difficult. Ask yourself: can you care too much?
Truth was big on the agenda in Saturday’s reading and it strikes me that we all manage to hide absolute truth behind a wall built of fear. Fear of being seen as less than we pretend to portray, fear of loss, fear of rejection, fear of abandonment etc. but mostly this fear is an unconscious pattern that until explored remains a faceless feeling of unease that is squashed down and hidden in the closet by a lie, an exaggeration, an embellishment or an omission. The truth, we believe, will expose us and make us vulnerable.
The answer is that yes, we can care too much. But about what?
Outcomes, certainty and prediction, all the reasons we read oracles, see psychics and send ourselves half insane is to do with the human ego’s attempt to pin down the future, to be sure. “If I do A will it lead me to Z?”
But what happens when you stop caring?
When you disconnect from the need to know where all this is leading and detach from the destination (so much as to simply allow Source to lead you into whatever happens next with an open mind and an open heart), you put your inner gremlins back to bed because they have nothing left to protect you from. For example: when you give up the need for someone to like you or agree with you because you’re no longer invested in anything but the well-being of all parties, suddenly you open up a window for honest communication. Offending someone is no longer an obstacle because the primary objective becomes understanding, which can only come from genuine listening in equal measure to authentic speech… two way dialogue.
Imagine how different your conversations would be during your workday if you weren’t subconsciously sabotaging yourself and fudging reality because you were afraid your boss might not like you, or your colleagues might not invite you to the after work get-together.
Detach from your hidden agendas today by being ruthlessly honest with yourself first about what you are really withholding the truth for, and who from?… maybe it’s you?
