Sea Of Truth

Why are people scared of the truth?  Why do people think less of people who have the courage to speak to truth? We always demand the truth, and yet, how few people can actually accept to hear the truth?

The expedition to the truth is a great journey.  If you embark on this journey, you will realize that truth is not as shallow as a piece of paper or the surface of the horizon, but it is an intricate ocean that varies in depth and beauty.  Truth cannot be limited to the surface of the sea, but one needs to dive into the deep blue, where the harsh truth is more beautiful than the bare horizon over the sea; Below, is where unearthly creatures like the barracudas are hiding, and yet the same ocean frame the most colourful coral reefs filled with vibrant sea life.

Truth, is a hidden paradise, very seldom sought and found.  Like the undersea paradise, is it an unknown territory to most people – unseen, but at the same time an untainted wonder world of fantasy.  Do not fear the truth; but fear lies and deceit.  The majority of people will tell you what they want you to hear; tell you what they think you want to hear, but how many will rather tell you the truth from the word ‘Go’?

How many friends do you have that will speak the truth, even though they suspect you might be offended? Yet, they have the guts to tell you to avoid disappointment and embarrassment; someone that will rather tell you the hard truth, than to follow the norm and lie and deceit just to be the ‘good’ friend..  If you have a friend like that, keep them, cherish them, hold them close to your heart as you will not find another like that again


I saw a Facebook (online social network) status that made me laugh.  It was ‘I want to become a schizophrenic, but I am in two minds about it’, and today I almost feel like that.

There is a famous saying ‘A house is not a home’.  It is very short and very simple.  Four walls and a roof over your head is not merely a house.  It is about what you do to make this house your home.  You decide on the decor and practical aids you want.  You ‘design’ your interior to suit your needs.  Relationships, in my opinion, should be the same.  Don’t be in a relationship if the only reason why you are in a relationship is because you don’t want to be alone.  Look at things that will make this ‘emotional home’ you ‘soul mansion’!  Let the relationship with anyone, be like draping the perfect curtains or acquiring the perfect furniture to compliment your interior.  Sadly to say, the reverse is also true.  If you allow your home to be run down and destroyed, the devastating effects is also visible. If you allow irreplaceable wood to rot away, you will never repair it to its perfect condition.

I had a home… but I neglected it.  Now I only have a house.  Don’t take people for granted.  Don’t let people go through your life unnoticed.  Tell people if you care about them or love them.  Even better, show them you care!  Show them you love them.  Telling a person and showing person can be compared to an interior designer and a professional painter: an interior designer can tell you what you can do to look stunning, but the painter actually do the work.  When the interior designer left, there will be no sign of what was discussed, but when the painter is done with his work, everyone can see and admire your home!  Proof is in the pudding!

Did you ever have this feeling? I love you, but I hate myself for allowing that to happen?  I am happy to have you around, but in that very instance, it hurts as well.  You say you are a friend, but how much do you really know about me?  How interested are you to know things about me?  I think a lot of us has had this feeling or very similar.  As I sit here, I have all these questions.  It annoys me not to have these answers.  Recently a friend even made the disrespect she has for me and how little she thought of our friendship, evident.  It is not really helping my state of mind either. I think what actually gets to me and that one single person can disrespect me and my believes; enforce their opinion on someone and still have the audacity to discuss private matters as if it is an advertisement on TV.

On the perch of  a Baobab tree, I see this creature from the sky. As I get closer, I notice that this being is asleep. I am mystified with this living organism.  I gently stroked its neck and you could see it enjoyed it and I could almost feel a smile on its face.  Its shimmering feathers radiate an energy unmatched – filling your heart with joy, excitement and happiness.

Then, a moment thereafter, this creature of the sky opened its eyes and it was bewildered with my presence. Within a fraction of a second, it opened its wings and flew away.  The only thing I could do was to be amazed from a distance.  The multicoloured feathers reflected the sun’s rays and it created a collage of colours.  As This mortal’s physical freedom is even noticeable in its spirit, as it flies away.
