Truth and not truth

Truth and not truth.

None of us wants other people telling us what we should or shouldn’t do.

Especially when we were teenagers and adults (parents, teachers, coaches) could, and were expected to, tell us what to do.

And yet.

And yet there have been others who cared enough to share a blind spot i never knew i had.

Of course this is painful.

And once we get past the pain, we are free to transform as we move toward our next birthday.

The Other Side

Can we handle the truth?

1-10 written on a post-it note
On a 10 scale with 10 as high, how much truth do you want today?

Can we handle the truth?

In reality, nothing will help us move forward better than the truth.

Personal growth is transformationally facilitated through truth.

Why would we avoid personal growth?

Consistently attacked by a busy schedule?

Hang glider failure
On ABC Evening News with David Muir last night, a report of a tourist mishap during a Swiss Alps hang gliding flight.

 

Hang glider failure
The pilot failed to strap the tourist to the hang glider. It took a while until the pilot could land the aircraft. The tourist broke his wrist on the fall and tore his bicep – how he hung on for so long is a miracle. They were at heights that had he lost his grip he would have died. Was the pilot in a hurry?

 

The drive to do good is consistently attacked by the pressure and stress of a busy schedule.

It is infinitely easier to succumb to this daily pressure using the three main human go-to responses to reduce or eliminate the friction (pain).

Distraction, entertainment, and medication.

This becomes a habit quickly.

Be careful.

Better to fight it while the fire is small than after it has become a raging wildfire.

Chain breaker (music video)

 

Chain breaker.

Pain taker.

Way maker.

Yesterday’s sermon was awesome.

Probably because we sat about four rows back.

That, and the fact that Father John had just returned from Rome.

Unanswered Questions?

January 24 he put a gun in his mouth

jeff noel slogan think differently
Love how Disney Institute has adopted my business tag-line .think .differently (see the darker text near the bottom)

 

January 24 (today), in 2013, he put a gun in his mouth.

He was at his work desk.

He sent an email to dozens of people just before he took his life.

Received his email the minute he hit enter.

i called him immediately.

Thought it was some stupid joke.

After the first ring, i hung up.

“What if he’s not joking?”

Hell is real and no one is immune.

After four years, i just feel compelled this morning to write this – bad things happen to good people.

The beauty of daily writing (for 3,200+ consecutive days) is that it’s healthy in a way i never knew when i did not write..

There is no email subscription option on my blogs, no place to comment, and i don’t actively recommend these personal blogs to anyone.

Even though his letter clearly stated why Scott did this, we will never understand Scott’s why.
