Give truth a chance

Maybe no one will see the truth but you. That’s enough.

The point is to know the truth, not to be praised for knowing it. The point is to live with authenticity, not to convince anyone else that you’re doing so.

Yes, share your truth with others as you can. But don’t let it become diluted by your need for acceptance.

Instead, be generous and patient with that truth, and with those who hear it. Give it time, give them time, to discover that truth, each in their own way.

For the way to know truth is not to be told what it is. The way to know truth is to arrive at it through the experience of living.

Give truth a chance. And deepen your understanding of how indivisible truth and life always are.
