quiet is a choice in a free world, that allows true cowards the opportunity to remain silent even when they know better, which I believe most do..i personally relate to this quote and have lived first hand the destruction and elimination of family based on the inability to stand up to those who truly need some sort of a truth cleanse by those who remain mute instead..in essence we all know between right and wrong DONT WE..
Oprah last week said in a speech “what I know for sure is speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have”..it took me decades to gain the strength to implement this unique, yet most powerful tool to become free and open in living, breathing and speaking my personal truth while being able to back it up and support it as well..i think that is what makes the weaker people around you so utterly silent in the end..
FEAR is one of our greatest enemies and the more we employ this highly contagious influential emotion into everything that we can, the greater amount of destruction can happen because of it..cultures, religions, nations, communities, families and such have used such plows of doubt and lies to control and maintain force of their persuasive thinking breading concern and worry instead of peace and love to keep you small and weak..
by choosing to stay quiet when you know it is wrong, you are actually invisibly volunteering yourself to be apart of the problem as well..it is usually the people you trusted to have your back that end up being your hardest disappointment to accept when you realize the truth they wanted to go unnoticed..sometimes life has a way of cleaning out those who in the end don’t deserve to be apart of your journey when you reach higher roads to travel letting you to decide what ties to cut in the end..snip snip, that is the gift..
you can choose the path that you travel, and who you want to be apart of the story..sometimes life becomes eventfully unfair, and people like Martin Luther king Jr show up to be an angelic voice of higher reason in a space of time when hate is being out numbering by love, cruelly in fact..there is always a choice at the end, whether or not you want to confront and speak your truth bravely, or be meek and silent cowardly because your afraid of the person pulling your strings..
bless those who have had enough courage and power in their voice to step up onto the soap box for their personal truth and for the equality of all human beings..peace love faith hope <3
