Ok, so I woke up this morning with Jack Nicholson's quote "You can't handle the truth" in my head & as I do every morning when there's a clear word or message in my mind; I give it some thought & try to decide whether there's something there to write about. I wondered how many of us can handle the truth about who were are?

Do you know who you truly are? Can you be honest with yourself? So many of us live in a fog when it comes to who we really are. We put on a face, or several faces, for the world but never truly explore who we really are.

In order to move forward to a more joyful life & be able to live in a true state of bliss we need to understand who we are & where we're coming from. This exploration into ourselves is something that most of us try to avoid at all costs. First off we avoid taking this journey simply because it takes time. Many of us use this excuse to justify not taking this journey. The second reason we avoid this journey into ourselves is because we're afraid of what we'll find.

Most of what we create in our mind isn't the truth. We allow our mind to run away with various thoughts. These thoughts sprinkled with our fears create a world that isn't real. We are so filled with the fear of what we might find inside that we never take the time to actually explore.

It doesn't matter what your deepest thoughts or desire are. The point is to discover who you are at your deepest level. Every thought & every pattern we create in our life can be changed but in order to live a life of more joy we need to know the starting point.

Once we understand who we are at our core we can begin to overcome the pain & fear that has held us back. Be honest with yourself, no one else needs to know the truth. Accept who you are, let go of the fear & become the person you've always wanted to be.

Till tomorrow,


Quote of the day:"Be honest with who you truly are, move beyond the fear & into a more joyful life."

Excellent blog, Bill. You and I seem to be on the same wavelength as I was about to post something similar. I too get random messages in the morning from time to time and it helps me with my writing.

Keep up the great work!

I always ask people "WHOSE truth is it?" Meaning, that often times I see people (including myself) start to twist the "true truth" to leverage the situation either positive or negative depending on the direction of the their current state. Sadly it is often used more so in the negative. Like a minor inconvenience becomes "my life sucks", an argument becomes "they hate me". Is that THE truth or simply OUR truth we conjure? Just one more layer of the onion we must peel away. Thanks for allowing me to think about this! ;)

Thanks Cristin for joining in the fun here. =D I always appreciate reading others to expand my own thoughts...send me your blog link & I'll be sure to check it out.

Tony thanks for your comments, I appreciate your thoughts each time. I think it's easy to fall into the negative state it's much harder to stay positive & work through the negative but it is possible if you want to get there.

Hugs two both of you,



Ah the journey within Bill - one of the scariest and most humbling journeys of all. I read so often on people's posts how difficult it was for them to write, "come out" if you like and just be themselves. What does that say about the world at large? It really is quite sad isn't it, that so many people feel that they have to hide who they truly are because it doesn't 'match up' to some undefined standard. Hugs xx
