Truth Telling. In this guest post, LEO describes how verbal integrity has helped him on his path of personal growth. Empath Empowerment® skills help, too.
I love everything about this article. Including how — from my perspective as an Enlightenment Coach — LEO gives excellent advice for spiritual evolution.
Truth Telling. Even When “Homesick for Heaven”
A few months back I heard Rose use the term “Homesick for Heaven.” That theme has popped up again and again for me in recent weeks.
Earth is such an un-ideal place in so many ways.
- The pettiness.
- Lack of clarity.
- And downright selfishness of other humans.
Recently this has let me down, hurt me. (Probably hurt me for a long time. But I’m more aware of it now, I think.)
Truth Telling. Even When Earth School Is Rough.
Recovering from disappointments, I find this theme often pops up: Homesick for Heaven. For example, when using the RES Energy HEALING techniques. Since the un-ideal quality of life on earth doesn’t stop with events.
Instead, it becomes part of the STUFF people carry: Energetic and subconscious pain. Skills of Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) remove that and put in something more reminiscent of heaven.
After using RES skills for healing, I’ll remember that upset feelings are valid.
However, they’re also sort of baked into the premise of Earth School.
Not Much Perfection Here. Nor Truth Telling.
Consider that there is not much perfection here.
Rather, what happens each day? A series of interesting, meaningful, chaotic, tragic, and ultimately wonderful… set of messy opportunities.
Like a big sandbox with the potential for fascinating creations.
Truth Be Told, I’m Not Crazy About That Aspect
My resistance to some of the in-built frustrations and pains of earth? Quite understandable. Yet not particularly helpful to my continued evolution as a human. Therefore…
About My Aims for Adapting to Human Life on Earth
My hope is this:
I will continue to adjust my expectations of life appropriately, while striving to do my reasonable best.
Despite so much… absolute ridiculousness… out there. Downright frustrating and maddening ridiculousness.
Yet my opportunities to grow in mind, body, and spirit in meaningful and beautiful ways. These opportunities exist in equal or greater measure. Like STUFF stuck in a chakra databank, the most beautiful, fragrant roses are littered with knobby thorns.
So, How Much Truth to Tell?
This theme lines up quite neatly into my aforementioned struggle. Concerning how much truth is appropriate?
Certain times in my life, I was not very truthful. Often in an attempt to “not rock the boat” or to “fit in.”
This tendency was only compounded by being an unskilled empath . With a number of empath gifts. Accordingly, before learning Empath Empowerment… Let’s just say this: Often I found it difficult to distinguish my truth from what was going on with other people.
In recent years I’ve become much more truthful. Insisting on telling at least some of the truth whenever I can.
This is not always an easy experience for a listener. Because so often, truth has been pushed into denial.
Complicating Life for Millennials Like Me
Further, have you noticed the cultural zeitgeist that encourages variations on lying? Like:
- Respect everyone’s opinions.
- Don’t ever hurt anyone’s feelings
- And “Truth is relative.”
Seems to me, this causes our society to trade on vaguery. Keeping us locked into personal echo chambers.
Nonetheless, I’ve found truth telling still can be often be helpful. Rarely is it as harmful as I used to fear.
Sometimes relationships would really benefit from truth telling. Even when the positive effects don’t show immediately.
I believe we plant a seed when telling others the truth. Will that truth grow enough to see the light of day? That’s not on me.
No seed of truth can grow unless the other person uses free will to say “Yes. I choose to live with authenticity.”
