The Truth is Hidden Within Us

Remember when I used to feature a quotation on this blog every week?

That was a long time ago.

Today, I thought I’d share a nice quote with you all here.
I really like this one. It shows a connection that I feel is present among us all. It speaks a truth. And yes, it is from fiction. Just one of the reasons I love writing and reading fiction.

“Maybe there is a universal truth embedded in everyone’s soul.

Maybe we all have the same story hiding inside
like a shared constant in our DNA.

Maybe this collective truth is responsible for the similarity in all our stories.

Truth has a power
and if we all gravitate towards similar ideas,
maybe we do so because those ideas are true,
written deep within is
and when we hear the truth,
even if we don’t understand it,
we fell that truth resonate within us,
vibrating with our unconscious wisdom.

Perhaps the truth is not learned by us,
but rather




as that which is already inside us.”

– transcribed from the audio book presentation of “The Lost Symbol” by Dan Brown
