“I see the number one problem humanity faces as believing in and acting on lies. The unhealthy patterns this leads to are behind the destructive forces humanity engages in.”
Gary David Currie
This is it folks, this is what I keep talking about in as many ways as I can. If you are sick of hearing it from me I am not sorry because this will be the solution to pretty much everything we do that is not working. This will allow everything to work in the first place. Absolute honesty, integrity and value of the truth is vital. Without it we live with deceit and the foundation of all relationships which is trust.
On a personal level;
If we are not honest with ourselves, if we are not honest with those we love and interact with then we have no trust. If we have trust and find out that lies are involved that trust is broken. If that trust is broken then our daily life’s are directed towards pain and misery. This is what makes a relationship work, any relationship.
One lie will lead to another to cover it up and before you know the web is so thick that we have trapped ourselves and do not know how to get out. It is this point we begin to engage in behaviour that attempts to forget momentarily the situation we find ourselves in. This manifests itself in many ways which I am sure you have seen or may have even done. We must always tell the truth.
You may right now be thinking of a situation where lying is the thing you have to do but I can guarantee you that it will be born of a lie and one lie will lead to another. Are we capable of telling the truth always? Do we get ourselves into a position where the lie eventually becomes the truth? Maybe but it will not matter as the truth will always come out.
Many of the medical problems we face can be traced back to lying to ourselves. Solving this one problem will eliminate so much pain and misery. The truth may hurt when you first hear it but the pain of not knowing or being lied to will have dire effects. Think of any personal relationship you have and if it in any way is not built on complete honesty which begets trust it will be strained and will manifest in unhealthy symptoms. I realize that most do not want to hear this and even if you accept this you probably will still engage in behaviour that is unhealthy but the truth is the key to a sane world, a sane life and sane relationships.
Applied to the belief systems around the world;
Let’s face a few facts here and I and others have written about this many times, when we cannot verify something as true such as god or any belief system that relies on faith we must suspend judgement which means we just basically put the belief aside into a category where while it may be true we cannot accept it as true. If we believe in as true and follow the system we are just fooling ourselves. The lie we follow then becomes incredibly elaborate and we wrap it in so many layers of lies that well it just could not possible be false at this point. Sorry to inform you but a lie is still a lie no matter how you wrap it up, no matter how much you want it to be true and no matter how many people believe in it.
This system of lies that humanity has created with all the rules it entails is still a lie. Are we that gullible and ignorant of how reality works that we refuse to acknowledge this? Maybe we are and if so this is just sad. How many life’s will be destroyed, be in pain, be in denial because we simply refuse to accept what is true? This lie has impregnated our societies so deeply that to even question it brings about more lies. The trust around the world is nonexistent because of this.
It is this very fact I have mentioned that brings me to say that religion backed by believing in and acting on the lies it professes is the number one cause of much of our misery and pain, it is the problem we must face.
I don’t really care what justification you can come up with, what excuse you offer me as to why I am wrong the facts will demonstrate otherwise and this is what I go by the facts not speculation or beliefs. This is what we should all go by but we don’t.
Stop lying. Stop lying to yourself first then to others. If you are involved with someone who is lying from personal to public to global call them on it. If we do not and continue to allow it to dominate our world it will continue to be the core problem we face.
I ask this one question and it really is not that hard to answer as we already have a dictionary definition;
What is the truth and how do we determine what is true? The answer to this is well laid out and yet people continually ignore this replacing it with an answer that allows them to justify their lies perpetuating the cycle of the main problem. We actually shun those that call us on our lies as we just refuse to face them even though the effects of the lies can be seen everywhere. This is the simple solution but will surely take time to implement. I find people fight this idea hard. I have seen every excuse imaginable to show me why this is the lie and that I am the one lying, that they have the truth and that I just do not see it.
What can I say the evidence shows otherwise. So set yourself free and stop lying……….
When I put my head on my pillow at night I can truly say that I have been truthful and that I value truth even though in doing so I pay a heavy price. Can you say the same thing? Are you being truthful and really this is the most important thing we can do in life, the most important thing we can teach our children as all else will hinge on this one ideal.
