Truth




“Truth is the fire that destroys and purifies dysfunctional relationships, families and institutions as well as freeing the individual. True feelings, remembered suffering, and acknowledged betrayal of the Self and others bring an end to all outmoded roles, old power structures, and destructively held secrets. Only then can the cycle of dysfunctional behavior stop.”
