Always Speak Your Truth Fearlessly

John Cali

Many years ago I graduated from a Jesuit college. They required all students to study philosophy every year. I was fascinated by the subject, and one of my favorite philosophers was the ancient Greek, Socrates.

Socrates was condemned to death for speaking his truth—as he always did fearlessly.

William Shakespeare famously said, “To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.”

One of my all-time favorite writers, Richard Bach, said “Your only obligation in any lifetime is to be true to yourself.”

Finally, another of my favorite people, Pope Francis, recently said “Sin, even for those who have no faith, exists when people disobey their conscience.” That’s quite a different perspective from the Catholic Church I grew up in.

Here are some thoughts from Spirit:

  • Violating your conscience, to us, means doing or thinking anything that does not serve your highest good, and that of others.
  • While you may not be violating the prescriptions and proscriptions of some “authority”—church, government, parents, schools, etc.—you are violating the trust and love your spirit has given you, the human aspect of itself.
  • That, to us, is the biggest “sin” you can commit.
  • Always be true to yourself. Then, as Shakespeare said, you will always be true to others.
  • Always speak your truth with love and without fear. Then others will be drawn irresistibly to you.
  • Always love yourself unconditionally. Then you will love others unconditionally.
  • Always know you are Spirit. Then you will always recognize Spirit in others.
  • Walk in peace, knowing in your heart all is well.

Allan Hardman is a spiritual teacher who leads groups to sacred places in Mexico. Here he is with one group as he teaches them how to speak their truth:

In the early 1980s John took a spiritual development course, and was introduced to his first spirit guide, Lydia. After Lydia arrived, three other guides also came to him: Archangel Michael, Tamarra, and Chief Joseph. Today these are John’s four main guides.

Besides his four main ones, John has various other guides. The entire group is really a multidimensional collective consciousness. John refers to the entire group simply as “Spirit.”
