The Truth: November 13, 2016

The Truth

It has been a challenging week for me. One in which I have found myself straying away from what I know to be the truth. One in which I have found myself straying away from my true belief. It has been a week in which I have allowed fear, frustration, and confusion to overtake me. I have allowed the events of the week to cause tension, between myself, and some of the people in my life that I love the most. And so, this morning I take a moment to remind myself of the truth.

The Truth is, I am part of the Divine. The truth is every living person and every living thing is part of the Divine. This includes the Muslims, Gays, Straights, Christians, Atheists, Buddhist, Catholics, African Americans, Caucasians, Latinos and all others. The truth is, there is more than one path that leads to God and I will honor each and every path. Just because someone is on a different path, doesn’t mean they are lost.

Donald Trump is not my truth. Hillary Clinton is not my truth. Mike Pence or anyone else who tries to take away my rights as a minority is not my truth. I have even had to realize that the KKK, a hate group that has been one of Trump’s biggest supporters, is part of the Divine. I have had to find the love and acceptance in my heart for this group that I know is filled with hate, prejudice, and judgment. They are part of the Divine none-the-less and I must love them even though I am terribly troubled by their actions and beliefs. This week has caused me to realize more and more that I must align my actions with my beliefs. It is easy to belief one thing, but when the challenges arise our actions say something totally different.

It is my prayer moving forward that I come from a place of love in all situations. It is my prayer moving forward that I realize my truth and that I rest in the knowing. It is my prayer moving forward that I recognize and most of all respect ALL parts of the divine regardless of their sexual preference, the color of their skin, their religious belief or lack thereof. We each have a path. It is time to stop trying to convince or mandate that others be on our path. It is a work in progress for me but I am grateful for this week and the awareness and lessons I have learned as a result.

 

Peace and blessings to all. Have an abundant week and remember your truth.

  1. That was right on time. It’s been a long, difficult week for many of us, but your words help ease some of that and remind us to reflect on who we are and what our focus should be. Thanks for that truth.

  2. Very true Vincent. We are on different paths trying to stay on that path can be difficult. It’s in that part of the path we are revealed a little more about who we are and what we are here to do. This is what I tell my daughter Elizabeth, life is like a river, you’ll have dry moments and you’re quenching of thirst. Thats when you think your not going to make it then the rain starts to come . You will be flowing smoothly again keep your faith.

      Thanks so much for your feedback. Love your analogy of the River. It is all about the ebb and flow of life. We are going to have dry spells. That is the time to remember and stand in the knowing of your truth. I look forward to hearing more from you in my upcoming Weekly Sunday Blogs.

    Easy to say, so hard to do. I find myself waking during the middle of the night knowing that something’s not quite right…then realizing what has happened…A sick feeling indeed. I am just still so upset and terribly sad.

    • Jennifer,

      You are so right. It is always easier to say than to do. Doing takes more work. More conscious awareness. I completely understand your feelings as I too have struggled. It is however important to keep reminding ourselves of the truth. Many times much, or even most, of what we see with our physical eye is not the truth. Hang in there and keep that chin held high.

      Much love

  4. Thank you Vince for reminding us that we’re part of something much bigger than the environment we’re in currently. God can’t be labeled or put in a box and it is nearly impossible for us to comprehend His love for each of us. I’m sorry you’ve had a rough week. I love you and I’m praying go you!

  5. Very well said Vincent. It has been a challenging week for many of us. Love does Trump hate, and will always win. If we allow the events of this week or any other bring us down to the same level, then hate will grow. We will Rise!
