Truth as a way of life
Dusky, one of my favourite artists, talks about 'Truth as a way of life' in their song Truth Capital T.
What does 'living our truth' mean?
I've been thinking about this a lot, and I think it means to live with integrity.
Being aligned with who you are, what you think, and how you feel.
Living in truth is living in alignment with your higher self - the greater part of you that we are all reaching towards, and in fact already are - we just need to realise it!
It's about when your thinking, feeling, doing and being are in alignment. What you say, and what you do, are in alignment with your values and the person you are.
It's about being who you really are, free of what other people think.
Living your truth is speaking in accordance with your highest values, acting in accordance with your highest values, and living a life that is truly aligned to what is in your heart.
The more you feel in alignment with who you are, and have the courage to express that fearlessly, the more people, situations and experiences you will attract towards you that will resonate with you.
I think that so many of us find it difficult to live our own individual truths or even know exactly what we want because we are bombarded with the way other people are living their lives or telling us how we should think and behave.
We are immersed in digital media bubbles, and the only way out of them into our own true existence is to turn our attention inwards and listen to our own inner voice.
You know what lights you up. You know what you love talking about. You know what gets you angry and pushes your buttons, what you believe in. You know what you hold dear to you, above all else. These are your truths. And no matter how different they seem to be from anyone else, these are yours.
