Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book ‘The Last Lecture’ by Randy Pausch.
Today I pray. “Dear God, there are endless last words to be imparted before we become departed. What are a few today?”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to reveal these words on page 163:
“Tell the Truth
IF I could only give three words of advice, they would be ‘tell the truth.’ If I got three more words, I’d add: ‘All the time.’ My parents taught me that ‘you’re only as good as your word,’ and there’s no better way to say it.”
Authenticity doesn’t need to be hidden. Full self-expression is noble. We each posess many gifts that are available to be shared. Being honest in our delivery of ourselves is supported by the universe. There is no need for scarcity of self in life. So we are free to be who we are, be who we came here to be, and be how we came to express. Honestly, that is the best us possible.
