What does it mean to stand in the integrity of your self and the Universal Truth? This question can be answered in so many different ways… almost as many ways as there are people on this planet.

I have often contemplated upon why our religious teachings began to take us away from the truth. It did not seem fair to me that the truth was not at our disposal.
