One always knows what truth is in any situation but one may avoid the truth where it is painful and where is does not agree. And yet it remains and it will not disperse. It will always be truth once it is revealed, once it is known it will always be. It may be hidden away somewhere to be dusted off from time to time and looked at and pondered over. ‘Yes that is the truth but I do not recognise it at this time. I will not recognise it. It is not, I do not, it will not for it does not suit’. But it is nevertheless the truth and it will not recede. It will always be the truth.
In the dance of life one may learn as many steps as one possibly can. When one comes across a step that is not known, that is not familiar, the step may cause one to stumble and it may take a while to regain composure and continue the dance in the way that one has learnt. If one wishes, of course, for this to be the case for one may not wish to carry on the dance in the way one has been dancing. One may discover a new dance and make up one’s own steps. There is no hurry but the new dance is there. Waiting.
In the climbing of a great mountain one may travel through many storms and seasons and wind and gales but also sunshine. Do not be afraid of climbing the mountain and do not be afraid of storms. It is life in all its nuance and it is the passage through life one cannot avoid. When one stands at the edge of the fire, the edge of the precipice, it is only courage that is needed to step forward into the unknown. And this courage lies within all. It is the courage of a lion. This is the path to self and the path therefore towards love and understanding oneself.
