5th August 2013: Truth & Dare

A Sacred Obligation

Deep within the fabric of our lives, woven from its twists and turns, challenges and blessings, shocks and surprises, rests a sacred obligation often overlooked: an obligation to truth which trumps every responsibility we carry and commitment we undertake. Today the heavens highlight this obligation and pose the question: How do we intend to honour it in the coming weeks?

When faced with such a question we may find ourselves side-stepping the real issue to justify why we can’t honour the full truth or live with complete integrity and authenticity. We may not articulate these reasons explicitly, but somehow, at an unspoken level, we can rest in the knowledge that we have good reason to go only so far on the road of truth and no further. Perhaps we don’t want to hurt those we love, or we fear those who have power over us.

Perhaps we’re uncertain of our truth so feel inadequate to communicate it to others, even though we know the life we live is not it. Maybe we fear the truth itself, knowing that acknowledging it would necessitate earth-shattering changes in our lives which we daren’t contemplate right now, if ever. Whatever our reasons or motivation, truth and its expression is often a source of ambivalence at best and denial at worse.

But still there exists this obligation to honour it, beating like a heart at the centre of each one of us. Like any pulse it varies in speed and intensity depending on the degree of stress placed upon it. At times it may be so faint we can barely hear it and at others it pounds in our ears drowning out all other noise in its attempt to be heard.  Incarnation in this human realm necessitates we get to grips with truth and its complexities, and once we step onto any path of spiritual-enquiry we must be prepared to face its many layers and leave each one behind as we uncover yet another.

In the coming weeks we will be challenged to fulfil this obligation more and more fully as we journey into our future. Inauthenticity, avoidance, denial and deceit, none of these will cut the mustard as we strive to embody a fuller expression of who we are and the life we must lead. Our obligation to truth is growing in strength and increasing in intensity. Can you feel it? The stronger it pounds upon the door of our consciousness the less time we have to get to grips with its implications before it comes bursting through. Because burst it will, in due course. Nothing insincere or inauthentic, deceptive or untrustworthy will survive these times of upheaval and change. Everything is being drawn towards the light of consciousness, no matter how disruptive it may appear once illuminated by it. We cannot resist this process. Indeed, we are obliged to take our part in it. It’s what we’re here for, like it or not.

So as we embark on a new week, with a New Moon arriving tomorrow, the heavens throw down the gauntlet, challenging us to meet our sacred obligation and embrace our truth whatever it may entail, because in the long run truth means freedom and freedom is what we came here for, before the fear set in…

Love to everyone.

I've been up since 3:17 contemplating how I get to my truth without hurting the people I love the most, and your entry paralleled every thought I've had in the last hour. I have been praying for courage for some time, now, and I believe reading this put me one step closer to my truth. Thank you and God Bless.

The blessing of your insights speaks right to my heart and brings guidance and reassurance of the true but ever-so doubted path...

Thank you for this message, Sarah. It truly speaks to me on a heart & soul level. It very much identifies the energies/fears with which I currently struggle. I'm tired of harshness. I'm ready to be surrounded by peace & love & only give peace & love in order to heal most fully. I do not believe it's by judgement we are healed; but, fully & only by love & a loving circle of friends. Thank you so very much for your timely, truthful, loving messages. <3 Much love to you! :smitten:

Your work and voice have become the one (since the passing of Maya Del Mar) most resonant with me, now checked daily. This one is so completely spot on for the dreams, thoughts, goals for this day. As others have also commented here. For this moment even: realizing the commitment to my own "sacred obligation," recognition of this mission and meaning in my life, minutes before I had read your words saying just that. The first paragraph brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for telling it like it is.

Sarah,
My question is.....where does truth lie?

Sandra Smyre 5th August 2013 1:34 pm

"Truth will set you free"! It has certainly done that for me, but with a lot of work on my part. Just lost a friendship yesterday--one of many of late, and have done my introspection work and "know" for me it is the highest good. Does it feel good---heck no. The water elementals are having a good time--lots of tears of release. So with a heavy heart I say thank you dear Sarah for this spot on message. And to all who gather here--much love to you!XO :angel:

Sandra Smyre 5th August 2013 1:36 pm

Hi shapeshifter! When you find out please let me know(haha). Always love your responses "keep on keeping on". In LoveLight, Sandra :smitten:

this post is absolutely spot on. however the "plan" for my life that God has revealed to me is so VAST that I feel quite lost in knowing my next step apart from having faith and belief. namaste.

"Sacred obligation to the truth."

You don't mince words, dear Sarah. You just put it out there and let us take what we need. It surely isn't any easier for you to ask for it, find it, see it, live it than it is for me. Just by being your own authentic self in every posting, you encourage me. And I feel so loved.

as for "truth"

Model truth: turtledom

Read above line forward and backward.

The Green Turtle's shell has 13 inner scales and 28 outer scales. It is through embodying this harmony that the Earth was named after the Turtle.

13 Moons x 28 Days = 364
+ 1 Day Out of Time = 365

Throughout America the native tribes honour the Turtle as the keeper the harmony of time. It is a time founded upon observing nature.

Nature functions through maintaining equilibrium or balance. The Turtle swims through the sea of time with the Earth (shell) on it's back. Keeping the people of the Earth protected in the original order of nature. (from http://infinity-codes.net)

As for the “dare” part:

Go deliver a dare, vile dog!

Read above line forward and backward.

Botton line, as Sarah states:

” So as we embark on a new week, with a New Moon arriving tomorrow, the heavens throw down the gauntlet, challenging us to meet our sacred obligation and embrace our truth whatever it may entail, because in the long run truth means freedom and freedom is what we came here for, before the fear set in…”

Love it, Zorro. Thank you for doing one of those things you do so well. The turtle mythology was new to me.

shapeshifter 6th August 2013 10:05 am

I think truth isn't always what it appears to be and that's where it lies.

I don't think truth ever lies, even when it contradicts itself, Shapeshifter :D

And much love to you too Sandra.Yes, the truth sets us free, but it can be a painful liberation at times, certainly while we're in the process of it anyway. May your heart be lighter sooner rather than later :smitten:

Sounds like your next step is having faith & belief then Mat! And you can't do much better than that really! :thumbs:
