When you are truthful with yourself, you start to see everything as it is, not the way you want to see it. Though it may be true that something bad may have happened to you, it is no longer true that you must suffer this experience. You discover that perhaps what you believe hurt you so badly was never true. Even if it was true, it doesn’t mean that now it is true. By using the truth, you open the wound and see the injustice from a new perspective.
Three Rules for Seeing What is True:
1. Don’t believe me. Believe what you want to believe according to what I say, but only if it makes sense for you, if it makes you happy. If it guides you to your awakening, then make the choice to believe it.
2. Don’t believe yourself. Don’t believe all the lies you tell yourself — all those lies that you never chose to believe, but were programmed to believe. Don’t believe yourself when you say you are not good enough, you are not strong enough, you are not intelligent enough. Don’t believe all of your boundaries and limitations. Don’t believe you are unworthy of happiness or love. Don’t believe you are not beautiful. Don’t believe whatever makes you suffer. More than 80% of what you believe is a lie…it isn’t true.
