I’ve thought about this for quite a while now. Years, actually. I’ve found nothing to change my thinking on this subject. I believe that deep inside every single human being is a set of inner truths, call it a genetic marker, call it DNA sequencing, call it natural instincts, call it the human soul, It exists in each of us. We are born with this signature of Inner Truth.
Each day of our existence we wake up and go about our daily activities and for some of us we dwell on the why of who we are. Mostly we find no answers. A mystery as to the why of this. None the less the Truth waits inside for us to discover, nurture and grow.
Many who are creative connect more quickly to inner truth. They can’t help themselves. They become so enraptured with the beauty of life in their chosen creative format that their inner truth is revealed for others to see through their artistic expression.
And just because an artist perceives their inner truth doesn’t mean they understand it. All too frequently their emotions are tossed and turned by the ebbs and flows of life and what they know is there but cannot understand or define – the mystery continues on.
My Inner Truth
I awake to the day of my life
Purity in thought, word, and deed
bending never breaking
a calm in a storm
being that whom I am meant to be.
