“It is always the false that makes you suffer, the false desires and fears, the false values and ideas, the false relationships between people. Abandon the false and you are free of pain; truth makes happy, truth liberates.”
― Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

 

Truth Liberates. Yet first because truth illuminates falsehood, we suffer if only it is the dissolution of the illusions that we live with. “I stay in this relationship for my children.” “Noone need ever know.” “I am doing this for you not for me.” Truth shows us our self interest and our rationalizations and makes us see ourselves for who we are. Of course this comes with the opportunity to become something better yet first comes that shock and yes that suffering. It’s not a bad trade tho it sucks at the time. Yet truth will out eventually.
Blessings, G
