The Third Tool:
is observing and succumbing ourselves to truth.
We have to be determined in its purest sense to bow our heads down before the truth, no matter what it is or how much does it go against our benefits or previous beliefs or against how we have been handling things previously.
We may have been believing some thing for years and suddenly find out that we were wrong; if we truly love ourselves, we have to accept the truth.
Truth some times is like a tree outside our house, but we often do not know what tree is it or how many branches its’ stem spreads into? Or in many cases, we do not know if a tree is there or not?
If we are not able to do that, we clearly do not love ourselves. We love our egos. We love to keep our head high and believe and make others believe that we were right, but in side deep down of ourselves, we would know that our size has shrunk.
Step to do: Every single night before retiring to bed. Think about the tasks that you did not do out of laziness. Think about all day that you spent. Think about every important task you did or you could not do. Think about the time that you let go waste. Think that you could have been wrong. Think that you could have accepted a fact, which you did not.
Just keep on doing that. Even if this exercise does not make you take an immediate action, gradually it shall pull you up for taking an action. Taking an action against mental laziness or sticking to your past or to things.
Do not take this exercise as light. Just keep on doing it. It would sow the seeds of transformation, that would germinate into seedlings when the right time comes.
