What About You Do You Believe
“Truth can never be found in mere belief. Belief is restricted. Truth is boundless.“-Brad Warner Hardcore Zen
Your self concept is made up of your beliefs about yourself, your environment your friendships and basically your overall perception of the world around you.
These beliefs are not truths. They just that, beliefs.
The good news is that through your imagination you can reinvent this worldly you at any time and point you choose.
But why aren’t you? What is so weird about standing in your truth?
- Fear of judgment
- Fear of outcome
- Fear of alienation
- Fear of the unknown
- Fear of success (responsibility)
- Fear of the work it takes (Lazy?)
You fear the fact you may not be what your concept of self has believed it is all these years. (That’s a big ego)
Matter of fact, you or your many selves aren’t anything at all. You’re a part of the divine source. Connected, whole, one.
So why be terribly concerned with any of the above?
Because standing in your truth is a lot more fun. People will think you’re bat shit crazy (Thanks Elizabeth) but there’s nothing like it.
How Do You Stand In Your Boundless Truth
When I hired my life coach Jana Fleming earlier this year, she didn’t tell me how to live my life. She helped me identify tools I’ve forgotten about that would allow me to find access to my authentic power within myself in order to stand in my truth. To realize my connectedness to the universe. To realize I am everything & everyone all at the same time.
That I am able to tap into that source at any point & time. Like drinking from a fountain to keep hydrated. The fountain is always there.
I can’t tell you exactly how to stand in your truth right now because there isn’t just one way. However I chose to give you some examples of people I feel that are publicly living in their truth and sharing their light. I suggest you follow them on Twitter and observe them.
I’ve kept my eye on each of these individuals for quite some time with the exception of Alexandra Jaye. I just discovered her because of Brian. Her video alone (Link below) will bring a smile to your face today:
1. Brian Johnson
(@_brian_johnson on Twitter) from www.PhilosophersNotes.com
2. Alexandra Jaye
(@mygoddesslife on Twitter) with www.MyGoddesslife.com
I’ve followed Brian for a while now and really dig his site Philosophers Notes. Talk about turning your passion into a business. He’s done it and found his Dharma in the process.
I love Alexndra’s dance video on Brian’s blog. What a great spirit. She’s focused on living in her truth and sharing her light in this video. Nothing else.
Both of them are just living in it. I love Brian’s work, where he’s taking it and it’s just awesome.
3. Allison Nazarian

Allison actually posted a great article on The Truth About the Truth which is a bit different context than what I’m writing about here today. However I just dig how she states it & stands in it. (Her Truth) Heck she even states it in her Twitter profile. 🙂
4. Elizabeth Pots Weinstein
(@elizabethpw on Twitter) from www.elizabethpw.com
I’ve been following Elizabeth for a while too and when you see what she’s about, you can tell she’s living in it. Her newest post was on Making The Commitment to Signposts & Sh*t Piles. If that doesn’t tell you it’s someone standing in their truth then I don’t know what is. Wait till you read the post. It totally hits home and calls you out to live in it.
5. Phil Gerbyshak
(@Philgerb on Twitter) from www.www.philgerbyshak.com
I got to know Phil through blogging a few years ago. I found him because he was using the Typepad platform and so was I. Phil and I are in two different niche’s but the one thing we have in common is a “Make It Great” attitude. Phil’s Make It Great moniker has stuck in my head for years. From his about page: “Phil’s first book, 10 Ways to Make It Great!, has sparked a fire within the hearts of thousands of people, as they take charge of their lives and relationships.”
Phil is about relationships. That’s his truth, not to mention he’s just an all around kick ass guy who lives it with a smile on his face all the time.
I could feature a lot more folks here and maybe I will later but these are the ones who jump out at me as of late who are using social media to spread the spirit of their message.
Truth Is Boundless Belief is Restricted
All of the above individuals have one thing in common besides standing in their truth, they all have a healthy sense of self.
- Otherwise could they act in the ways they are?
- Could they provide direction for those who are looking for it?
- Could they be so transparent about their inner most thoughts & lives?
“Their belief in their healthy selves, restricted it may be, but truthful their actions are.“-Me
Sounds Yoda like, however it’s true. These above people in my perspective are not only living their truth but are providing guidance to others to walk in theirs. It’s not easy, it’s a big responsibility however they do it because it feels right. Their truth is boundless and so is yours.
These folks are shining examples of living their truth.(In my humble opinion) They don’t claim to be absolute, they just do. That’s authentic to me.
Regardless of what you think or anyone else, stand in your truth. Find out what that means for you.Who cares if someone thinks you’re crazy?
Don’t take my word for it, ask questions find out. Research the above people. You know in your gut right now, when you’re reading this, if in fact you’re doing what absolutely feels satisfying and truthful to your being. If so, share how did you got there.
- If not, why aren’t you?
- Does this open any questions for you?
- Does it inspire you to seek your truth in order to experience more of what life has to offer?
- Are you willing to question your beliefs surrounding your self in order to live in this boundless truth?
Let me know, I’m so very curious. 😉
