Spiritual Warriors of the Truth

“When there is nothing left to defend, truth is all there is.” Don Miguel Ruiz
I pause. I breathe in the great I AM. This simple action connects me to the very core of my being, where I know, feel, and accept my connection to my Source.
I pause again. I accept that the very energy of Life is love itself — pure, unconditional and filled with grace.
In this place that I find myself, I am able to look around and see the essence, the very truth of all beings. I relinquish my need to be right, and I set aside my petty judgments, and simply and fully accept all others, as well as myself, as humans who are doing the best that we can. Everything else, I surrender. Free from all of those distractions, I am able to look about and see all of the beauty and wonder that is present.
With my defenses melted away, I am truly free to be my authentic self. I stand strongly and securely in that truth.
And that truth is Love.
And so it is.
