Are you ready to be disillusioned?

That’s actually not as bad as it sounds. If you are disillusioned, it only means that you’re no longer under an illusion.

You’re able and willing to see what’s really going on. The veil has lifted, and you can see clearly now.

Becoming disillusioned, while certainly enlightening, isn’t easy. Losing one’s illusions can sometimes feel quite painful. There is a grieving to go through, especially if what you are now aware of came as a shock to you; for example, learning you’ve been lied to by someone you care about can feel like a great betrayal.

Letting go of any illusions you were under allows you to be in truth. Even when you were blissfully unaware, or so you thought, there was still the energy of a lie to get through and deal with. Some examples of this include learning after the fact that the trust you placed in authorities to protect you and your children, was not deserved by them. (See ‘The Catholic Church’, etc).

Expressions such as ‘what you don’t know won’t hurt you’ and ‘ignorance is bliss’ hint at a kind of chosen unconsciousness. They are also lies we tell ourselves in order to not have to deal with what is actually going on. Yes, the truth can hurt, but lies will hurt more, especially a mountain of them.

It takes great courage to see truth for yourself, instead of relying on others to tell you what that truth is. In order to become who you really are, you will want to welcome the energy of disillusionment into your life. A great question to ask yourself is, “what don’t I know that I don’t know?”.

The truth will set you free.

  1. Sometimes we are told lying is socially acceptable, as in “a little white lie”. But you are right, these little white lies add up to mountains of lies, which lead to just believing them, because as you say, finding the truth is hard and takes great courage.

    Today I am going to find one lie I have been believing and break through it with a truth.

    Thank you!
