Raw Truth

Very powerful … I will be using these words by Katrina for my meditations today.


There are numerous definitions for the word, and I’m not insulting anyone’s intelligence by listing any of them. The Truth I’m talking about is our own unique truth. The authentic us, the truth we must own to be fully ourselves.  Many people go through life never finding the rock bottom raw truth of themselves. Which is fine for them. Most of them are perfectly happy and living normal lives with partial truths that get them through their days. Full truth is not for everyone.

However, there are those of us who ‘keep swimming out into life’ looking for a rock to stand on. The rock we’re really looking for is our deep, raw, authentic truth, our purpose, destiny, reason for being here. Part of owning our destiny and purpose is owning the raw truth of our authentic self. It’s not enough to just ‘know’ ourselves, we have to dive to the bottom, feel the pressures of the ‘above’ weighing down on us, we have to face our dark half (and yes, its half), we must smell the bad we are capable of – acknowledge our limitations and where our threshold of temptation lies. Once faced, its up to us to find the leash, our unique way of controlling or containing our threshold of temptation. For me, it’s been similar to the Kraken in Greek Mythology. However, in my version, I’m both Perseus and Zeus, I’m always in control of the Kraken and I find very few reasons he ever be ‘let loose.’

Once faced and we see ourselves ‘authentically, truthfully’ there is nothing left to fear. For all our unique fears are born from our own dark recesses, the negative we are capable of; when we fear anything, we’re actually projecting our own negative capabilities out onto something or someone else. Then we are free to acknowledge our destiny, purpose for being here. To integrate all our authentic truth into a whole person.

This realization, this immersion into raw open sea of life and the truth of our destiny, what we are best at, what we are most able to do in a way no one else can do, brings an indescribable comprehension of ourselves and we finally know peace with ourselves; then peace with ourselves brings peace with others and life in general.

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
