When I was about 10 years old, the song “Games People Play” by Joe South, was released. I always loved that song and thought it was bad ass. Even at just 10 years old, I knew bad ass when I heard it. Tell it brother!
The song’s lyrics from the opening verse are below:
“Oh the games people play now
Every night and every day now
Never meaning what they say now
Never saying what they mean”
It is important for us to speak our truth and strive to become one with our higher self – “every night and every day now.” Today, more than ever, it is critical that we speak our truth and not get lost in the lies and deceit that are so prevalent everywhere we look. Lord have mercy. The Stone’s song, “Lies” should be re-released when they go back on tour in a couple weeks. Speak your truth!
The throat chakra gets a lot of attention during my Reiki treatments. Whatever pain someone is dealing with, somewhere in their pain is the inability to speak their truth at that moment – whether it involves a job, relationship, decision or any action that needs to be taken. Sometimes we feel it in a sore or scratchy throat. But, it’s really all about speaking our truth.
Be true to your higher self. Nobody else can do this for you. Regardless of whatever games you may be forced to play with other people, stay true. You know what feels right. Embrace that feeling and let it grow as you release all of the games that others may be so infatuated with. Save your energy. Don’t waste it. Rise above it all with your heart and the the rest of you will follow.
