10. Truth

“Truth is by nature self-evident.  As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear.” – Mahatma Gandhi

I have been spending time contemplating my life lately, During this process it has become clear to me how many lies about my life and the world around me I have put faith in.  As a result I decided to take some time to determine what my Truth is today.  I have been looking at this opportunity like some sort of cleaning, where I can recognize my false beliefs and cast them out while I firmly identify what my core truths are.

I think that I am not alone in saying that there is room for improvement in this area.  As I go throughout my days I constantly come in contact with people who are obviously stuck in a delusion that this life that we get to live is not a gift.  I think That is my first Truth, This life is a gift, I am so blessed to be present in this moment and feel how incredible it is to be alive.

My second firm truth is that this life is what I make of it.  If I believe it is a gift then I should treat it as such.  I realize that like most gifts at times it may lose its shine and appeal but usually I can find a way to actively spiff it up.  All to often I get in the mindset that I am stuck in a position because of outside circumstances but in this moment I know that is just a false belief.

Affirmation: Today I stand firmly for what is True, as my life actually is.

Call To Action: Take some time to clear out some false beliefs so that you can stand more firmly on what is actually true. Please share some of your Truths with the CLYF nation.
