“The truth will set you free, but first, it will PISS you off.” The truth is the truth. When the truth is spoken, it often times offends and angers those that hear it. The truth has no agenda. It has no foul intentions. It simply IS. If someone responds with negativity, that says something about the true state of THEIR heart, and exposes their own unconscious mind.
There’s nothing wrong with being positive, in fact, it’s something that we highly recommend. However, we have noted a growing “cult” of positivity. People claiming to be all about “positive vibes”, peace, and love, who, ironically, viciously lash out at anyone who offers a viewpoint or idea that conflicts against their own. This can be seen most recently with the news that Gay Marriage has now been made “legal” by the Supreme Court.

To those of you speaking the truth, continue speaking it. Don’t take the negativity personally. We are all mirrors. A person’s perception of you, is only a reflection of them.
To those of you that are still offended by truth: begin to dis-identify with your beliefs. Instead, have ideas. As Chris Rock said, “I think it’s better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier. Life should be malleable and progressive, working from idea to idea permits that. Beliefs anchor you to certain points and limit growth. New ideas can’t generate. Life becomes stagnant.”
There is no “right or wrong.” There is simply truth and untruth. Ego is concerned with being “right.” Your higher self is only concerned with being aligned with…
