Day 5: Truth

There is a great truth given to me by a teacher. He was a great teacher! He said that if you do not live your truth then you are nothing. He taught me the meaning of truth not only in what I say but in what I do and in how I interact with you as a colleague, a friend, a teacher. A person without truth is totally worthless. You cannot trust them, you cannot believe them, you cannot depend on them to help you. And what do they have if they do not have their truth? Nothing. That is why I begin and end everything I say or write with Aho! which means in the Yaqui language, " I speak my truth."

My truth may be all I have to give you but I have my truth and I keep a sacred vow to myself to be in my truth at all times. In this I have dignity and light and power. It is part of not only being a Shaman but of being an authentic human.
