    stand in our truth

    Hello everyone,

    I'd like to ask about the meaning of "stand in our truth" in the following context:

    Now is a time to shake off all residual fear and the doubt that has been strewn in our path, inebriating many who have lost the way. It is a time to stand in our truth, perhaps as we never have before, and to call upon all others to stand in theirs, so that together we can raise the consciousness of the group soulóbringing healing, bringing forgiveness, bringing illumination to the living of our world.

    Does "stand in our truth" mean "declare and defend our truth"? And does "stand" in this phrase means something like fight, begin to act?

    I think it like 'take a stand'- whichmeans what you suggest. In terms of fighting, it's metaphorical and not literal.
