Live in truth

What is true will persevere. What is false will eventually be consumed in its own contradictions.

It may seem easier and more convenient in the short term to disregard or to hide from what you know to be true. Yet you cannot really hide from the truth.

Instead of striving in vain to deny or to fight against what is true, put yourself on the side of truth. By fully acknowledging and accepting what is true, you can put that truth to work to achieve whatever you wish.

Whether it is deceiving yourself or deceiving others, deception requires much time and energy. And because deception never really achieves anything of value, it is a great waste of your precious life and resources.

Instead, put that time and energy into successfully dealing with the truth. After all, you’ll have to deal with it eventually, and the sooner you begin the more you’ll be able to accomplish.

Live every moment in truth. Align yourself fully with the truth, and bring great power to your purpose.

— Ralph Marston
