The easy path is the path of Truth. The only thing is, you don’t always know what Truth is. Sometimes there are just too many things for you to evaluate, and so you evaluate too much.
It is good to look at Truth more than you look at what is Right. What is right is more complicated, because you have to consider right in whose eyes, and from which view, and what is right right now or righter down the line.
Truth is immediate. It is its own path. It does not have to follow a line of reasoning. It cannot. Your considerations of what may transpire after you choose what you like to hope is Truth is not the precursor nor evidence of Truth. It may well be evidence of expediency.
Truth does not play odds. Truth is what it is. Truth is not a standard that the world holds up for you to follow. Truth is your own heart’s core. Truth does not dawn after great thought. Truth does not require thought. Truth is following your own heart without cogitation about it. Truth certainly does not dawn through thoughts of profit or loss.
Being out of your own Truth is a habit. It was foisted onto you, and you adopted it. That which is adopted is not Truth. There are no slogans for Truth. Truth does not exist within a vacuum. It cannot be isolated. Truth is that which is sturdily and truthfully in your own heart, and everything else has gotten out of the way of it. Oh, the bare Truth.
What is right and nice is not always Truth. What is smart is not always Truth.
Is honesty Truth? Is being upright and of great character Truth? Yes, when it is. No, when it is not.
The only Truth of count is Love, and yet Love is not always seen nor felt, given nor received. Sometimes love is numb. But take to heart, Beloveds, that which is not Love, that which does not come from Love, that which is opposed to love, that which would portray itself as Love and yet not be Love, that which looks like love but from which Love is vacant — is false. Love is True, and Love is never false.
Love and Truth do not calculate. You can not be advised of Love. No one can counsel you in it. All you can do is let it be. Remove any cover-up of love, and love will be clearly sitting beneath it all. It was there all the time but not revealed. Not even revealed to the holder of it. Be a beholder of love in your heart and in the world. Bring love forth.
What is there that Truth cannot heal? There cannot be too much love, and yet you have not seen enough. And yet Truth and Love are everywhere, so how is it that they are not seen and heralded more?
If love were advertised in the world the way plastic surgery is, who would be swayed from love? Where is truth in advertising?
Is Love a drug? It outdistances any drug. No drug has the vibration of Love. But you have the vibration of love, and you can vibrate it. You can be a Light Tower of love because, in Truth, you are. You can beacon ships away from crags, and you can beacon other hearts to yours and therefore to the Truth of their own Light Tower.
Anything less than love is away from Love. Anything less than Love is away from its own Truth. The Truth of you is Love. Fight it no longer. Concede. You cannot outdo Love.
