The Confession of Truth

19 Aug

Reality is the veil of truth. Sometimes that veil is transparent enough to see what lies beneath, but often times we can’t see clearly enough. In order to truly seek the truth, we have to defy the light of delusion, and stare into the darkness beyond the veil of reality.

The reality is that we go to work, pay our bills, watch reality tv in the evening, party on the weekends, and take a vacation once a year. We’re smiling, optimistic, intelligent, educated, and successful. That’s the reality.

The truth is we hate our jobs, juggle our bills, seek distraction in socializing, and save all year to afford our one week of relaxation. There are tears behind our smiles, our hope dangles by a thread, we aren’t sure we are not one of the dumbest people on the planet, we didn’t learn much in school, and our lives are hardly what we would consider a success. That’s the truth.

Our reality is built on the idea of something real but Something unnamed inside is whispering that this doesn’t feel right. The problem is that we are too afraid of what it might mean if we admit how we feel; the confession that could shake the foundations of our reality until the veil tears in two. But in that moment only truth would remain and then, somehow, in the presence of our crude, brutal truth we would begin to deal with what’s broke and create a life not builtbon unsecurity and fear: a life that matters. It begins with mustering the courage to admit: ‘We may not know what it should be, we may not know what it will be, but we know that this is NOT it.’ Confession is good for the soul.
