What I gained In Search of My Truth

I’m old enough to say “Looking back over my life…” and not regret a single day. Yes, there have been many days, months, even years that I could have lived and loved differently.  But, then I wouldn’t have the experience of life I do now. Searching for my Truth has been a very rewarding journey!

What I gained In Search of My Truth:


  • I am free from doubting myself automatically
  • I am free from self-sabotage
  • I am free from being a victim of circumstance
  • I am free from blaming others
  • I am free from worry

The list is endless!


  • I know that my imagination is my most powerful ally or enemy. How I choose to implement it, is up to me
  • I know that my outer life is always a reflection of my inner life. Everything I experience as happening to me externally, I have already committed to myself internally
  • I have the power to change my outer experience in the instant that I change my inner experience
  • I am the Creator of My Life. I build my experiences by my attitude and EVERYTHING/EVERYONE holds an opportunity for growth and love. Yes, even those traumatic, life threatening ones!
  • I know that what I can’t take with me when I ‘die’, is not worthy of concern. My pursuit of earthly things is not to accumulate but to experience my own creative power which is only half of what I will take with me
  • I know that the experience of learning how to love and be loved, is the other half

Of course, this Freedom & Knowing wasn’t gained easily. They came hand-in-hand with Responsibility.  I have had to take full responsibility for my whole life. The good and bad. Recognizing that the positions, places & circumstances I find myself in are completely, wholly as a result of my very own decisions.

This is a painful and necessary maturing process.

What I gained and lost in search of my truth

What I Lost in Search of My Truth

  • I no longer subscribe to the illusion that when/if my actions and words hurt others, I am a bad person
  • I do not make it nice for everyone, especially for my children, family and loved ones – how they choose to experience their lives, is their choice, just as it is mine
  • I do not need to be approved by others. My own approval through careful consideration is all that is required. And, if this careful consideration results in having to acknowledge that I indeed do not approve, then having the courage to change until I do
  • I no longer fear (emotional- that is, I am still working on losing physical fear :)) I do not fear hurt or not being loved. This is all part of life and the experience therefor depends again on my attitude
  • I do not support scarcity; I am the Creator of My Life and therefore I experience abundance in every form

The search of My Truth finally brought me to the edge of peace, yet with the excitement that life is still to be lived, loved and enjoyed in every moment!

Live a life of Honesty

All around us Life is pulsating with inspiration to live a life of Honesty and Truth. It is courageous to live such a life. A Life in the present moment, the here-and-now, rather than distracted by our fears and doubts.

As soon as we succumb to our fears and doubts, Lies easily substitute the Truth – we tell ourselves the first Lie, that the Truth will hurt more. From experience I can tell you that THE TRUTH HURTS LESS – especially in relationships.

I find much Inspiration to live a life of Honesty in music, recently I came across this band:

Harem Scarem:

They are a Canadian hard rock band from TorontoOntario. Harem Scarem achieved popularity in Japan and their native Canada in the early 1990s. The band was active from 1987 to 2008 and again from 2013 after reforming. Throughout their career, they released 13 studio albums, plus numerous live and compilation albums.

Live Life of Honesty

In particular their Song Honestly, had much meaning for me during and after my divorce. In my opinion the meaning of the song is simply about our desire to mend a broken heart, and subsequently having the courage to ask for a second chance.

Here are the Lyrics:

“I stand before you, accused of many crimes
But I want to believe that love can still survive
You don’t have to say it, I don’t have to read your mind
To know the emptiness that’s finally arrived
How was I, to know the right from wrong
Words were hardly spoken, so where did I go wrong?
Tell me honestly, if you’re still loving me
Looking into my eyes, honestly
Words have more meaning, if they’re said at certain times
I need you now so I can feel alive
How would you know it, you wont give me sometime
To see if everything could work out, and you’d be mine
Oh, will love be lost forever or someday I may find
The words that I’ve been searching for
Are just some peace of mind…
Tell me honestly, if you’re still loving me
Looking into my eyes, honestly…
All the night I sit and wonder
Must be more to laugh, I’m sure that
Days and years gone by while I am
Living with the…
Oh, lonely feeling”

What meaning does it have for you?
