The Unpopular Truth

The truth offends. The truth is direct and without question. The truth is…truth. If you cannot accept the truth then you say the truth is a lie and that the truth cannot possibly be truth. You therefore manufacture your own version of the truth, even worse regurgitate someone else’s version of the truth. You now believe in nothing. You believe in nothing so much that, that nothing, becomes your truth. You become so enamored and seduced  with your version of the truth that the actual truth angers you. Because real truth, true truth, threatens your version of truth. It enrages you to the point that you call the truth a lie. You are blind to the truth and discussions of your truth become nothing more than sessions in you being right and everyone being wrong that disagrees with your truth.

The year is 2010…there is no more truth…

I agree that truth is frequently uncomfortable. But truth also gives me comfort because I know it is a bedrock upon which I can stand. I look forward to reading your blog.
