Living the Truth

"Living the Truth in your Heart without compromise brings kindness to the world and true happiness to yourself and those you love.  Attempts at kindness that compromise your heart cause only sadness." ~author unknown
To the extent that you entertain lies and deceit, you are held prisoner in a world cut off from reality. The truth you hide from yourself, prevents you from growth and fulfillment. The truth you hide from others, keeps you distantly apart.

The truth shines a bright light on life, so you can clearly see the way to go. Success, achievement, happiness, joy, fellowship, and fulfillment, thrive in the warm and nurturing light of the truth.

Honesty is the most direct path to wherever you want to go. Truth and honesty are often difficult, yet never more difficult, in the end, than deceit. To think otherwise, is to deceive even yourself. Hiding in the shadows of falsehood, makes it impossible to move forward.

That the truth is moral and ethical, is no secret. Yet truth is also practical, efficient, and effective in every worthy pursuit, something well known by those who enjoy lasting success.

Live in the bright, empowering light. Embrace the truth. It always serves you best.

— Ralph Marston (

“Unless your Heart, your soul, and your whole being are behind every decision you make, the words from your mouth will be empty, and each action will be meaningless.  Truth and Honesty with yourself are the roots of happiness.” ~Author Unknown

  4. Wonderful excellent reminder of walking in the truth!! It is so important.

  5. Wow, our pastor preached on The Truth today. He talked about something C.S. Lewis wrote about being in a tool shed and suddenly a beam of sunlight casting light, revealing the surroundings. But the real reveal came when one stepped into the beam and looked up at it. Powerful stuff!

  6. "Embrace the truth. It always serves you best." That's what mom always taught us and we taught ours, and they are teaching theirs!
