Know Your Truth

I was browsing blogs this morning and came accross this youtube post from Amourpropre. This brotha is 27 and he felt like he lost his truth. When you view the video post, you'll see what I mean.

It's so funny how we loose our truth. The truth being that we know who we are and what we want in life. Unfortunately, the desire for something is what sometimes takes you away from your truth. This separation from the truth can happen at any age and sometimes it can happen over and over again. It's the desire that takes us away.

I admire this brotha for so eloquently exposing himself so that others might learn from him. No matter the situation that is taking you away from your truth. There will be times when you will have to ask yourself if you are living your truth.

Ask yourself if you are living your truth.
I pray that you are.

I can definitely understand losing the truth and yourself!

There is an Akira Kurosawa movie made in the 50's name Rashomon. It tells the story of a man and his wife who are robbed and the man is killed. But it's told from the perspective of everyone involved. It's left to the viewer to figure out what the truth is.

For me, that is what my truth is, figuring what it is at the particular moment with information that I have at that particular point. It can and sometimes does change and adapt, all in regard to the circumstance I find myself in. I can't say that I always live my truth, but I know I'm always searching for it.

Okay, i am not commenting on the post, but the art work. How very cool is that picture. Who is the artist? Can you tell me? Is it one of you pieces? I am guessing that it is not, because, although I have only seen the one piece by you, I think I have an idea of your art style.
