Truth is more than not telling lies.
Truth is doing what feels right, going with my gut.
Truth is not having thoughts that conflict with my actions.
If we are doing things that are untruthful, not following our inner guidance, thinking differently than we act, how does that affect how we feel? For me, it causes stress, anxiety, frustration, guilt and fear. This swirl of emotions leads to more thoughts and more emotions and more stress, poisoning my experience.
