Destiny's calling – it's time to answer!

Today’s Truth: Lies only have power if you believe them.

Seems pretty simple, right? Of course, lies only have power if you believe them. The question is – What Lies do YOU believe?

If you are reading this blog, I can assure you that right now you are believing lies. You don’t even realize it. You believe lies about yourself, about your family, about your friends, about your job, about your boss, about your coworkers and even about God.

Wow. How do I know this? Because we all believe distortions of the truth (aka Lies). I’ve never met someone who didn’t believe a lie about themselves and about others. We pick up these distortions throughout our lives – it just happens. It starts with our view of how or why things happen – we begin to form these opinions as a child. Since our reasoning is not yet mature, we come up with all kinds of “mis-truths”. We get a little bit of truth with a little bit of error. When you do that, it becomes a distortion of the truth, an inaccurate view of what is really happening.

The problem is – we don’t realize that our version of reality is somewhat skewed. We never question it. No one asks us about it. It is just the way we see the world.

The problem is – if you believe something that is not true about the world, about yourself, about relationships, about anything – it affects your ability to make good decisions. If your data is bad, your conclusions will be faulty. As a result, your life doesn’t work as it should. There’s unnecessary conflict and stress in your life – all because of those lousy lies you believe.

So how do you find out if you believe any lies?

I have a simple little exercise called the Lie Detector. It’s in my book, Freedom through Forgiveness. I’ll go more into this in a future post. Here it is in a quick summary.
1. You query a source of truth that can verify if what you believe is true or not.
2. You uproot the source of the lie you believe. You shift your thinking about this area.
3. You find out what’s really true and you incorporate it into your thinking.

Seems pretty simple, right? It’s actually a little more challenging than you think it is – especially point 3. This is the point I emphasize the most to my clients because they assume it is easy – until life proves them wrong.

If this topic intrigues you, if you want to get your life on a firmer foundation of reality (versus the Lies you believe), then stay tuned. To continue, go to Part 2.

  1. Where would mankind be without lies?

    I don’t think it is a question of “living without lies”, but, a question of living by the right lies. Culture, after all, is the collection of lies we (within the culture) all pretend are the truth. Without the lie that we can exist forever, provided we closely follow the “correct” path, we would have no religion. Without the lie that God is on our side we would feel justified in nothing.

    People need to know that their life has value within a world that has meaning. Well… IT DOESN’T! The universe is a profoundly uncaring place. Lies, that we can agree upon, enable us to ignore that and get on with living rather than simply going mad.

    Do you see what I am getting at?
    Respectfully yours
    Mrs. N.

    • I am sorry Mrs. N that you have found the universe to be a profoundly uncaring place. I do see your point. Believing lies can help you cope if the world seems like an unfriendly, uncaring place. However, I must tell you that your life DOES have value. Truly, you have something unique to share with the world and you deserve to be appreciated and respected for that contribution. I am sorry you have not experienced that. I invite you to contact me privately if you’d like to consider the possibility that there is more to the world than you have yet experienced. The universe can be a safe, loving place – I know because I have personally experienced it.

      • Thank you for your interest Sandy, but, I don’t really have a need to be appreciated & respected for any contribution. I’m a very contented person who learned long ago that other people do not create the world I inhabit, or, determine my worth.

        You say… “The universe can be a safe, loving place – I know because I have personally experienced it.”… and that is all well and good for you, but, certainly not realistic for everyone. To deny, or, ignore even temporarily the death and suffering that is inherent in ALL life in matter is to hide from anything that could be called an objective reality. I don’t want to do that… even if I could. Children starve to death on this planet at the rate of one every few seconds. Two and a half billion people have never used, or even seen a flush toilet.

        I am sentient life made out of chemicals. No one has any idea how that thing we call my brain produces that thing we call “mind”. The fact that I know I exist seems miraculous. I would feel embarrassed to even consider asking for more.

        All the best with your quest
        Mrs. N.

      • Thanks, Mrs. N. I hear you – I appreciate your perspective. Thanks for explaining where you are at: “The fact that I know I exist seems miraculous. I would feel embarrassed to even consider asking for more.”

        Guess what? There is More – Lots of it. And if someday you give yourself permission to receive it, you’ll be amazed. I hope you do. You deserve it. 🙂
