Life Lessons From Your Soul - Truth

There is a big difference between what is true and what is truth. For instance, it may be true that you believe that men are smarter than women but the truth is intelligence has nothing to do with gender. When a person is wrapped up in what they decide is true for them, the truth will not be readily welcome. They will fight it tooth and nail while using the universal bandaid of the personality - denial.

If anyone comes to remove the bandaid of denial, the wounds that created the conflict with the truth will be opened. It then becomes a battle between the personality and the soul as to which force will win out. The soul runs on truth. The personality runs on what is true. What is true can be an engineered version of the personality designed to keep the truth from surfacing.

The classic battle within regarding what is true and what the truth is will be waged within each one of us here in earth school. It may happen in some areas in our lives and not in others. It will happen though.

To examine truth, begin to look at the lies you tell yourself about your life. What are you covering with the denial bandaid? What are you believing that is hindering you or others? One way to know is to feel the energy behind the truth. There is ultimately peace there. You are the only one who can admit to yourself what the truth is. Set about this journey. You will grow exponentially for it.

Life Lessons From Your Soul - Personal Mottos

It seems most people have a personal motto or a life theme. You may have the motto "Be happy. Life is too short." Perhaps you have a tag line for your business that is a theme for you. What ever your life theme or motto is, it will probably be your biggest challenge as well.

Martin Luther King Jr. and Mohandas K. Gandhi were both social revolutionaries who were dedicated to peace among races, their governments and their people. Both men lived a life theme of peace. As a result, they were asked to examine peace from every angle. To understand and achieve things of greatness seems to require the examination of its opposite force. Peace, violence, kindness, hatred, joy, sorrow, failure, victory, love and fear are all tools that helped those great men understand and achieve peace. They left an indelible mark upon our world through true power - peace.

What is your personal motto? Chances are that you will look at that theme from every angle through the experience of your life. Is your motto your challenge? Notice how you are challenged to live what you believe. Enjoy what your soul is teaching your personality through what you are most drawn to understand. There will be rich learning there for you.
