The Truth


A Remedy Reflection:

A New Year is upon us. It is a time to reflect. It is a time to reset. It is a time to realize. It is a time to repent. It is a time to refocus.

In a society that seems to be continuously unraveling, I found myself withdrawing more and more from it over the course of this year, and over the previous one as well. I have not watched the news in 2 years, I have cancelled our television service, & I don’t subscribe to any online or print news. Over this time, I realized how misled we all are on a daily basis; by government, by media outlets, by education institutions, by pseudo-science, by appearances, by images, by headlines, by advertising, by corporate marketing. Stepping back from it all, I saw it from a different angle. From this angle, I see through the lies & deception, I see through the agenda-driven persuasion. It’s become a global juggernaut now, but it’s behavior is prevalent and outstanding in our society more so than others.

I reject it. I am simply not subscribing or participating. I’m looking within. I’m finding that the TRUTH is within me, within us. It is easy to get caught in the storm of lies. We hear it daily from politicians and those in positions of power. They sway immense groups of people with their lies. They deceive, they divide us, they seek to control the masses. If we are intellectually honest with ourselves, we can see through it, and we can also know that the TRUTH is within each of us. We often just catch a glimpse of it, and then just get caught up in the flow of lies again. This year, take a step back. Look at it from another perspective. Inform yourself with original sources and not packaged news, (this includes nutrition articles, & medical journals, so many of which, have become hearsay, theoretical, & non-factual.) So many different branches of our society have been contaminated by lies & misinformation, like branches of a tree being affected by a disease. But at our roots, the TRUTH, though buried, is there, deep within and permanent.

By finding the TRUTH within, I accomplished so much this year. I really achieved all of my major goals & fulfilled my dreams. It was as if I broke free of chains that were holding me back. I see everything so clearly now. I know what is important in my life. It could be slightly different for you, but there it is, within. Seek it. Find it. Do it. Don’t be distracted any longer.

Seek the TRUTH this year. Let’s seek the strength within to be honest with ourselves, to set a different course from the excuses & comforts & the conforming elements that have so many deceived & hypnotized, (or entertained.) When we fully realize the TRUTH in all things, it is a positively overwhelming, inspirational, & uplifting feeling. The TRUTH can break through any obstacle that is withholding us from our goals and dreams. The TRUTH can move mountains. The TRUTH shall set us free.


Until next month,

Think for yourself. Question authority.

I wish you all a Happy, Healthy, & Prosperous New Year!
