If a thought hurts, it’s a sign it isn’t true. ~ Byron Katie
The discipline of poetry is in overhearing yourself say difficult truths from which it is impossible to retreat. Poetry is a break for freedom. ~ David Whyte
But we speak of “painful truths.”
And we speak of “the hard truth” and “difficult truths.”
Why is this?
What’s true for you?
What’s “truth” to you?
How do you know?
Where do you turn when you need reminding?
