Personally, I’ve adopted and learned through life’s experiences that God is the “Truth” and the “Truth” therefore Godly. Generally speaking, I find that the quality of “Truth” remains to be a missing ingredient in the relationship communication between Black men and women. Presently—although I know it exist—I don’t see too may examples of Black Love spearheading the consciousness of my community or mainstream culture.
Consequently, lying, bending the truth, or deception on any level or degree have become a part of our interaction and I’d even go as far as to say that it’s become a part of our culture.
As a result, the down low lifestyle has snowballed AIDS in our community, polygamy has been simply chalked up to “Let a playa’ play,” and we have given in to denying and hiding the “Truth” in order to seemingly protect ourselves and the people around us.
What troubles me is that the absence of “Truth” is doing damage on both gender ends of the Black Love interaction. While the “Truth” continues to elude the Black man and woman it slowly chips away our esteem and respect in general.
What I’ve found is that when I decide to exercise a lifestyle that is more “God like” and closer to the “Truth” as possible. The “Truth” becomes that much more easily to recognize making “Deception” stick out like a bad weave.
And even though the “Truth” might hurt at times, it –in the long run—is better for us.
Although cliché, the "Truth" will set you free.
And even though this blog might come off as comical at times, I assure you, it is dedicated and inspired by the “Truth” so that the folks interested in Black Love can be experience and witness it with satisfaction and confidence.
Overall, I encourage us all to live in the “Truth” and make it a required element of our lives. I definitely would like to see us maturely deal with the “Truth” as it comes and divinely touches our lives.
With these thoughts and beliefs in mind, I offer this blog as a platform for “Truth” to be communicated and dealt with out of respect for ourselves, each other and the world around us. With that said, feel free to be truthful as you only know to be.
We all deserve it's healing quality.
