The Loud Voices

By Greg Baer M.D.

When I met Andrea, she was deep in a pit of unhappiness: alone, feeling worthless, unhappy in her marriage, and short-tempered and frustrated as a mother. I taught her how to find and share Real Love, and gradually she rose from the pit. She became happy almost all the time. Friends commented on how she “looked different” and wondered what she’d done. Her husband and child enjoyed being around her.

One day she wrote to me, “I’m so happy I can hardly believe it. I never would have thought this was possible.”

A few days later she heard the story of someone involved in Real Love who had overcome unhappiness even faster than Andrea had. Then her son had a fussy and uncooperative day at home. Her husband was distant during dinner.

She texted and said she was miserable.

“The voices can be very loud, can’t they?” I asked.

“What voices” she asked.

“The voices of the past. The voices of lies. Jealousy, shame, and worthlessness have no sense of courtesy. They scream at you, pound down the door, and fill your head with their messages. But the voices of truth are quiet and polite. They knock softly at the door and whisper that you are worthwhile, that loving people is always the way to be, and that jealousy is an absurd comparison that never works.”

Andrea remembered the truth. More important, she FELT the truth, and her pain disappeared. Love is the truth. Love is an infinite power flowing throughout the universe. But love will never force you to listen or comply with the principles that govern it. Lies, on the other hand, will rise from the black hole of misery and attempt to drag you down against your will.

There might appear to be a struggle between truth and lies, but there is not. We need only remember the truth and refuse to listen to the lies, and immediately we can find the flow of love and happiness.
