  • When we hold our secrets close, when we prevent the truth from flowing freely, we become part of the wizardry that produces illusion. Ultimately, it prevents any accurate reading of our surroundings. Like hiking on wet rocks in the middle of a rainy night, your footing will not seem right, EVER!

    This illusion ultimately leads to the disease of shame. And shame is truly a swamp, where decay is the flavor of transformation. That decay is real, it becomes the only thing not illusion.

    Three steps to knowing the truth, tell the truth and tell the truth and tell the truth.
    The releasing of a secret is like a light flickering on after a long silent darkness.
