Do you? Really? Honestly?
I love truth.
In part, I love truth because it is reality.
My opinion, your opinion are just that – opinions.
Truth rocks. So much so it can often hurt.
Our minds are so full of error; much of it deeply engrained into our subconscious minds.
To the extent that we don’t clear our subconscious, we will have truth issues, many of which we will be unaware of.
Learn to love truth.
Truth is a beautiful, clear and even ‘worshipful’ thing. But you have to know and experience this personally.
