Dear Colleen, I know I am Truth. My struggle is to find balance without compromising who I am.

Truth is for me, rooted in love, in saying that, humanity is so afraid of it, run from it and reject it.

I find myself second guessing my intuition out of fear, which is not love…. what can I do to move past this, break the cycle and live true to who I am? S

Dear S S: I have also completed Baruch ‘s workshops and know I am Truth.

Colleen-Joy: The words “I am truth” point to the accurate reality of the nondual self, of pure awareness. However, if we don’t realize this true “I” then what will claim this I is the mind and thought. And herein lies the problem because the mind creates a fictional identity that it labels as “I” – and then it is the mind that is claiming the “I am truth”.

Right now, right here be aware of yourself as immediate, ordinary awareness. Not as something that you are aware of (which we call objects in awareness). Be aware of being aware. Awareness is the truth. In awareness, thoughts arise. Even thoughts like “I am the truth”.

S: My struggle is to find balance without compromising who I am. Truth is for me, rooted in love, in saying that, humanity is so afraid of it, run from it and reject it.

Colleen-Joy: To honor the deepest truth is the highest love. But the deepest truth requires the seeing and the falling away of the false. Not in the world, but inside of us. The desire to not comprise on this seeing of the deep truth is the highest desire – you love yourself enough to want this. It requires courage. While we still believe and live as a separate personal self then being true to our authentic intuitive sense of “I” is a path of integrity.

Yes, the mind can be afraid of truth, so the gentle meeting of the mind and of other minds where they are, at their place of perspective is an act of wise love. Only the mind wants to prove something, to stand for something.

Stand as awareness, as love, discover yourself as that love, as awareness, and then soon this truth will claim all territory, leaving your life as a radiant expression of truth and love.

S: I find myself second guessing my intuition out of fear, which is not love…. what can I do to move past this, break the cycle and live true to who I am?

Colleen-Joy: Fear is always born of ignorance, of some missing understanding or of a perspective that obscures our seeing.

But at its deepest root, it is also love. Like when as children, we were afraid of shadows in the dark, only to turn on the light and see that the mind was projecting false images and thoughts on reality. Fear is False, Evidence, Appearing, Real.

For there to be a universe, there is a movement of love that causes the universe into being. Love casts shadows that make it seem as if we are all separate but turn on the light and see that the shadows, fear are illusions.

Under it all is untouched, eternal love – this is “I am truth”. The body’s survival programming needs and uses fear to sustain biological life – this is also an act of love.

The mind under ignorance uses fear to cast shadows and illusions. If a spark of love of truth has arisen, then it is time to turn on the light. Courageously looking at the shadows, turning on the light by seeking, finding and embodying truth is the path. Gently, with love. That is how we break the cycle to move past this.

You are already awareness, you are already the true self. You are already love, peace and joy. Nothing has the power to change that or keep that from you.

Only the shadows cast by the belief in the mind make it appear otherwise. Enlightenment is bringing the light of truth into the darkness. Our lives are the sacred space where this is lived.

With love Colleen
