Silence becomes cowardice when occasion demands speaking out the whole truth and acting accordingly.
~ Mahatma Gandhi
Recently, I was walking my dog Annie at a park. Towards the end of the walk, I noticed two big piles of dog crap that weren’t there earlier when we went by the same area. The only other person at this park was a man and his two big black dogs who arrived a little after we did. I was ninety-nine percent sure that this man had not cleaned up after his dogs.
I was sitting in my car getting ready to leave, when this man returned from his walk. I started an internal debate about whether or not I should say something about how he did not clean up after his dogs.
I know in the past I would of driven off angry and not said anything at all, because I would have been afraid of the intensity of how I would have spoken to this man. He would have been at the receiving end of a lot of anger, and the end result wouldn’t have been good for either one of us. I would of stayed silent, because I was afraid of myself.
But as I sat in my car contemplating this unfolding event, I said to myself, I can speak my truth with love, compassion, and peace. So I did speak my truth in a very kind and positive way, and it was well received by this man who then gladly cleaned up his dog crap.
Did I make the world better and more beautiful that day in the park? That is for you to decide. I do know one thing—I can only imagine how this park would look if no one cleaned up after their dogs. It was a small thing to I did, but I think the world gets better through those small things.
So what does dog crap have to do with the price of tea in China?
We all have divine truth in us that needs to be spoken to raise the vibration of Earth, so we all can live in harmony with each other and create a world where there’s abundance for all.
BUT the key to it all is how is this truth spoken. Will it be spoken with emotions connected to the past? If this happens, no one will listen and nothing will change or contribute to creating a more beautiful world.
To bring your purpose to the world, you will need to speak from a grounded place. Speak with passion and let your message come out with the flow of life and the Universe.
Think of some of past Heroes—Gandhi, Peace Pilgrim, Mother Teresa and Nelson Mandela—and how they spoke with kindness and conviction.
Martin Luther King, Jr. was hated by many of his enemies who wanted to kill him, but he never wavered from his Divine purpose, and he spoke only with love, passion and compassion. And the truth he spoke freed African-Americans in the USA from being second-class citizens, even though he did not live to see this.
The key to living your meaning in the world is to heal emotions from the past. We all have or had things that need to be healed so it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Here’s a previous article I wrote on healing from the past.
You have a gift inside of you that the world needs to make something or someone’s life so much better. Look at this way—you’re standing on a boat with people drowning in the water and you have the life vest in your hand to save them. Do you choose to throw them the life vest? That life vest is getting in touch with and living your purpose from your heart—to find, do, and speak the amazing truth inside You.
Let me make this real simple for you—you are God’s hands, feet, and mouth. I’m not talking about a God portrayed in some religions of hate and fear. I’m talking the truth of a God of unconditional love.
What is your life vest?
What is the divine truth you have inside for the world?
Do you choose to heal and make this world better and more beautiful?
Without a doubt my friend you were meant to read this article. There are no coincidences in the universe.

Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world…would do this, it would change the earth.
