Men have been convinced to hide our truths about our wants, needs, and desires. We withhold honesty all the time because we are told that our truths are somehow wrong. This makes it impossible for us to enjoy life. Rather than openly being who we are, we choose to suppress it. When this fails, we lie, we cheat, we do... Continue reading

Lyrics to "I'll Die Smiling" by Abscondo Abscondo - I'll Die Smiling Out of place Some street in London's left me out of place Looked right at you, did you see my face? Seems all of London's going separate ways I'll go mine To New York No sky above me as I walk its floor Bright lights attack me but... Continue reading

What most people don’t know is that the feeling of love is what happens whenever you are open. Open your mind and heart completely to experience the natural energy—the force of life—that comes from within. The wonderful feeling of love—the ultimate experience of being alive—wasn’t something given to you by the person you were in love with; rather, it was... Continue reading

You can only enjoy life when you are free to openly be yourself. Yet most people hide their real feelings, needs, and desires. Despite how others can make you feel, the truth is that you are not guilty of anything. Your truths are not wrong — so why hide anything? The problem is that to withhold honesty is to try...

You so rarely confess how you really feel. You are almost never open about what really excites you, what really bores you, and what you really want or would do if you were totally free. Now consider the fact that nobody is telling you what they mean either. This has caused a detachment from reality. You think that, by filtering... Continue reading

The way to end your problems, to stop suffering, and to avoid crisis is rather simple: choose truth and honesty instead of withholding it. The Switch reveals the power of undoing dishonesty everywhere it exists in your life by telling the truth. Suffering is caused by trying to make real what is not true. This is faith in illusion —...

If you want perfect honesty, you will need to learn unconditional acceptance. Of course, no matter which path you choose (rules or acceptance), the truth will remain true regardless. Seen in this light, the choice for acceptance is quite clear. Truth cannot be changed by your attempts to deny it or desire to change it. If there are rules or... Continue reading

Cling to any error, and the natural process of correction is experienced as suffering. If ongoing suffering doesn’t inspire you to correct course, crisis ultimately will. There is nothing you can do to make illusion real. Reality cannot be different from how it is. The struggle to make illusion real only brings you endless sacrifice, great effort, ongoing challenges, a... Continue reading

His love is, of course, referring to the peace of God…which can otherwise be called heaven, salvation, awakening, or lasting happiness. An instant farther on the road to where all illusions end means the moment after you have dispelled all illusions—when you have chosen the path of truth and honesty. When this happens, you actually enjoy life right now and... Continue reading

The first step toward, and the foundation of your awakening is something you already understand completely: the decision to always welcome the truth and to tell the truth. Withhold honesty anywhere and the switch cannot occur. Without perfect honesty, awakening is impossible. Without awakening, lasting happiness is impossible. There are many paths to salvation. Present moment awareness is one. Shifting... Continue reading

What causes suffering other than living in a way that is inconsistent with your truths? This is detachment from reality. This is making the past and future more real than this reality, now. This is the choice for separation. In all forms of dishonesty, you are attempting to make illusion real rather than the truth. Illusion cannot be made real,... Continue reading

To find perfect love and happiness in life, you need to do just one thing. This isn’t hard, but it is very different. Think about this: whenever you have chosen to be less than honest about anything, you have created suffering. Not only does withholding honesty cause ongoing worry and stress, you ultimately face crisis whenever the truth is exposed,... Continue reading

We were taught to sacrifice not only our time and energy—but also our honesty. These days, it can seem impossible just to tell the truth. We’re made to feel guilty and afraid, always needing to prove who’s right and who’s better, in a game of pretending to be normal. But almost every problem is first caused by a well-intentioned decision... Continue reading

We live in a web of lies. There are the lies others tell us and we believe. There are also the lies we tell ourselves. Then there are the lies we tell others which seem to offer a solution to a problem or a way to get what we want. But all lies end in crisis. What is “crisis” other... Continue reading

Too often, we are closed to people for the simple reason that we are afraid of getting ourselves into a situation we do not want to be in. We put up walls to avoid later having to admit how we feel or state our needs. Even when we are open, we are too polite. We agree to things to please... Continue reading
