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
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
