THAT’S WHAT THEY SAY
Thought-Provoking Insights on Common
Quotations by Rev. Marjorie Rivera
It has been my observation that most of us live in some degree of uncertainty. We bounce from one catastrophe to the next, trying to find some sense of normalcy amidst the chaos. When you ask most people what they want in life, they answer “I just want to be happy.” In our search for happiness, lots of us make lots of mistakes. We try to mask our internal pain with a variety of different things. We seek stability to mask our internal instabilities. We seek control over circumstances or people to hide what we cannot control in ourselves. We attempt to become numb through the use of drugs, alcohol, and sometimes food, so that we don’t have to really feel what’s going on inside of us. I am going to go out on a limb here and say we live in doubt most of the time. There are many unstable factors today like our government/s, our economy/ies, our religion/s, and our relationship/s, just to name a few. I think it is safe to say that our earthly experience has become filled with doubt.
From a Spiritual perspective, when we are in doubt, it means we are not in truth. Being in doubt would mean we are not in a place of vibrational alignment to something higher than doubt, meaning truth. If we want truth to exude in our culture, we must align to truth. Each of us, could, at this very moment learn how to be a vibrational match for our desires. Do not hope, pray, or wish for what you desire. Instead be in the vibration of knowing what it feels like for your desire to be a totally normal part of your life. This means become the truth yourself. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Be the change you wish to see in the rest of the world. Let the change start with you. Going back to what Twain said, “When in doubt, tell the truth.” The saying takes on a whole new meaning. In an expanded way, we can choose to resonate internally to the truth by being more authentic and truthful in all of our interactions. Being more truthful and authentic is how we cultivate personal integrity in our endeavors. When each of us strives for personal integrity, we are reaching for our own personal truth. It may not always be easy to understand someone else’s truth but it becomes easier to recognize and stand in your own truth once you familiarize yourself with it more. If you wanted to practice aligning your personal truth more frequently you could begin with asking yourself this simple question: “Am I being truthful to myself right now?” Then take a moment to sense your reply. You might get butterflies or nervousness in your gut, you might feel right or good, you may want to run away. The point of asking yourself the question is to make yourself feel what your internal alignment to truth is like so that you can build your relationship to it and recognize when you are perhaps lying to yourself. You may learn more about
yourself by asking this simple question.
I have a strong belief that says every little thing in this universe depends on every other little thing in this universe to survive. We are intimately connected in ways we cannot even begin to imagine and when one of us grows; we all benefit. When one of us heals; we all benefit. When one of us soars; we all begin to know we can have wings. When one of us tells the truth; the rest of us are able to tap into the courage to do so more easily.
