And who was it that so fantastically said “The Truth will set you free”?
When I was growing up my mother always made us use just one towel for the week. With three kids and only one washer, it would take her hours to finish the laundry on the weekends. So for years I’ve kept that as my own practice, just one towel per week for showers.
Then one day I was thinking to myself “I’d really like another towel today”. Then I heard that voice in me say “But it’s not a new week.” And for some reason, for the first time in years, I questioned that voice “Well why can’t I have another towel this week?”
And then it hit me, like a flash, and I laughed and laughed and laughed. “You can’t have another towel because it will create too much laundry for mom” HA! That’s been running around in my head for years, unchecked, and I didn’t even know it.
You know what? I’M THE ONE WHO DOES LAUNDRY. I CAN HAVE ANOTHER TOWEL IF I WANT!
So, for the first time in years, I grabbed another towel that week. In fact, I used a new towel every day that week, just relishing in the fact that I could – just because I wanted to.
So I wonder…what unchecked thought is running around in your mind keeping you from having all you want in life?
Find the truth, and it will set you free.
