What is True in This Moment?

Honesty can be cultivated by transforming your inner language. For example, you might think: "I am no good" or "They are not good." Is this true? For some strange reason, people want to wallow in the idea of being either the best or the worst. What is true in this moment? How close can we get to the reality of our experiences?

I like this a lot. Maybe because I am asking myself "What is true?" in my life at this moment.
Happy Thanksgiving Alicia.
