Living With Radical Honesty

Human understanding, our own honest ways to be True to whoever or whatever will confuse us. Just from this site, from another posting and what many here said is Enlightening and Revolutionary "Meister Eckhart says: Thoughts are our inner senses. When the inner senses are dull and blurred, you can see nothing in or of yourself; you become a respectable prisoner of received images. Now you realise that 'eternal vigilance is the price of liberty' and you undertake the difficult but beautiful path to freedom. On this journey, you begin to see how the sides of your heart that seemed awkward, contradictory and uneven are the places where the treasure lies hidden. You begin to become true to yourself. And as Shakespeare says in Hamlet: To thine own self be true, then as surely as night follows day, thou canst to no man be false". This is why it's best to Trust God and not lean on our own understanding. Is this concept difficult to grasp? Here's the rest of it: Proverbs 3:5-7 says: 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. 7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. Peace to all my beloved brothers and sisters! brvhrt
