Search for Truth

As we open our eyes to a new day, may we also create a space in ourselves, in our day and in our lives to receive Truth, to be Truth, to feel Truth, to know Truth, to practice Truth and to give Truth.

But “What is Truth?”

Isn’t this ultimately the question that we all come to? Have you ever thought that maybe you are asking the wrong question and it’s not what is truth but… Who is truth?

By asking this question, we are not asking a question that seeks an answer but a person. Who is the Truth?

While Truth is each individual’s responsibility to seek, it can be journey that we can take together. In fact, it is a little easier with others. And, even though we can travel together as we look for Truth, we can never find Truth for another, because the way to Truth requires the unearthing of our deepest truths (truths that are all too often kept in secret places). While the path to Truth is simple, it is not always easy. It requires faith and humility to open ourselves to the relationship that Truth offers.

May, we not waste another breath asking the wrong question but may we begin searching for Truth to show us who we are and how we are naturally designed to be our true-selves, naked and unashamed. Perhaps, these moments of fear and great uncertainty are the gifts that we desperately need to travel through to our deepest fears and to invite us into confessing what we are really feeling and ask for Truth to help us. It is only in this place of need, where we can find Truth inviting each one of us to a relationship that gives us the rest we desperately need and are designed for. The rest that happens when we are completely known and fully loved.

“Do not interrupt the flight of your soul; do not distress what is best in you; do not enfeeble your spirit with half wishes and half thoughts. Ask yourself and keep on asking until you find the answer, for one may have known something many times, acknowledged it; one may have willed something many times, attempted it – and yet, only the deep inner motion, only the heart’s indescribable emotion, only that will convince you that what you have acknowledged belongs to you, that no power can take it from you – for only the truth that builds up is truth for you.”

Soren Kierkegaard
