But I am not speaking about a real window or curtain, but something within our own minds that is only partially open. Part of us doesn't want to "see" the truth, but another part--the one that wants to understand, develop, grow--impels us to look. We do so, but only partially, because we are afraid.
I like to believe the truth sets us free. I want to be open to it, to face it bravely so I can integrate it, learn from it.
The thing is--I am not always sure what the truth is. People I respect, and even love, see things differently. Situations get confusing. How can I discern what the truth really is?
If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.
Tell me I'm clever,
Tell me I'm kind,
Tell me I'm talented,
Tell me I'm cute,
Tell me I'm sensitive,
Graceful and wise,
Tell me I'm perfect -
But tell me the truth.
