Truth is hard to digest
Find it difficult to take it in when somebody tells the truth? What are your views on digesting truth - tasty? or bitter?
Truth is really hard to digest, when it is going against your thought. We say truth is always bitter.
But truth holds the power in itself, it cannot be hidden, it cannot be changed. It will carry its own significance.
I have actually felt how powerful and indigestible the truth is; it feels like that particular word or sentence is somewhat stuck in your throat. You are trying to gulp the words that you just heard. But, it's getting difficult for you to digest. Sometimes, when we do not really want to hear the truth, we try to fade away our thought from it. we try to forget it, trying to forget what was being told. That is because we do not want that truth to get through our head. We try to pamper ourselves with the thought that we want to hear, and we keep that going in our mind.
Truth sometimes seem like a bite of food that we feel is tasty, but is not at all good in taste and when the tongue gets its taste and tries to digest it through the throat, the throat does not allow it to get into the stomach. The throat seems like choking hearing that truth.
We need to bear the truth and understand its significance. We need to learn how to digest truth in our lives.
