Discovering Truth

“The first step toward finding God, Who is Truth, is to discover the truth about myself: and if I have been in error, this first step to truth is the discovery of my error.
Thomas Merton

When I hide behind the mask of false bravado I build a chasm between my God and me. I signal to God that I believe myself to be complete without God. God honors my belief but stays near enough to catch me when I fall, and I will fall, because God knows the ladder of self-deception cannot hold the weight of the over-inflated ego of my false self. So, God stands at the ready to catch me, redeem me, love me into wholeness and show me the way to discover the truth about myself, the beautiful, true self that God sees in me. I know this because this is my journey. How about you?
