I AM THE TRUTH
Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.
Jesus implies that there is a truth which known automatically will demonstrate itself in our experience. What could this truth be other than a consciousness of our union with life? It is wonderful to contemplate this spiritual and exalted idea of truth, that truth which frees us from the tyranny of fear and the thralldom of fate. It is not in our stars, nor in our environment, that we should look to discover this pattern of truth. The truth that Jesus proclaimed would make us free, lies only in the conscious union of man with God, the conscious union of the heart’s desire with the Source of its being.
“Be yourself today regardless of what happened yesterday.” We are in bondage only to a false sense of the self. We are in bondage because we judge the possibility of the future by the limitations of the past. We are in bondage because we do not realize that “He maketh all things new.”
Today I commune with the spiritual truth in everything. Today I know that the truth makes me free from fear, doubt or uncertainty. Today there is a song in my heart as I gladly proclaim that truth which is the revelation of Divinity through humanity.
