Truth is Freedom

In life there’s perception which is attachment and there’s truth which is freedom. Perception is binding and is a created idea to make life the way you think will best fulfill your wants and desires. Truth simply is…

There are certain truths that need to be understood if you are to be set free. The reason why there is so much struggle with this is because these truths aren’t brought into the heart by most people, they’re kept at the intellect level, in the head as perception. A perception of what you think truth is isn’t truth, it’s just perception and it’s this perception that blocks truth from setting you free.

First truth, you are not going to live forever, this is a fact. Understanding this impermanence is paramount if you are to be free.

I know today I am free because truth has set me free, not because of my perceptions. If I was still living my life by my self created perceptions, I would not be free. The Universe can only guide you when there is quietness that allows truth to be understood. If you make up a perception of this, freedom will not occur. This is another truth and it can only be known when it’s not made into a story. This article is factual, it’s not some made up perception of what I think truth is. When you know the truth and not your perception of it, it is only then that you will be set free. This will not occur if you are creating perceptions of the way you think life should be. There’s the way life is (truth) and there’s the way you think it should be (perception) and only one will set you free…
