'Deception' Chapter


When we deceive another, all we are doing is imposing our personal point of view on them. No one can sway all deceit. By those things we choose to conceal, we reveal ourselves, that very soft underbelly we are most terrified of, our inner demon. The individual is the biggest trickster they will ever face, and the reason for that is they have bought into an idea of who they are as an individual.

If you don’t worry about lies, you can see that their lies reveal their truths, and you can know what they would really do, because people always lie about their truths. If it’s not their truth, they don’t even think to make up a lie about it.

When you see no truth you see no lies, you just see things. When you aren’t careful, you have no cares, because you aren’t creating them. But when, in the name of truth, you live your life carefully, well… How is hell treating you?

We need to realize that we cannot make a point, that all of our efforts are deceit, all of our ideals are vanity, and keep living anyway. We need that story.

“A deception that elevates us is dearer than a host of low truths.” Marina Tsvetaeva

“Now I believe I can hear the philosophers protesting that it can only be misery to live in folly, illusion, deception and ignorance, but it isn’t -it’s human.” Desiderius Erasmus

Descend to the Valleys

Just as the wise man ascends to the top of a mountain in the metaphor, there are those who descend to the valleys, walk along the waters of chaos. More commonly we call chaos, trouble. There is a reason they… Seek More

Destructive Lie

We lie about our power. We do. We tell a horrible lie. We say that we are without power. This lie is really destructive. And to make others believe that they have no power is worse. Do you know why… Seek More

We Need Story

It would be more useful to look for my lies. Truth could naturally surface then. Truth always naturally surfaces, because reality always remains real. We don’t have to do anything about that. This is why people fall into this apathy that… Seek More

Don’t Worry About Lies

Now shall we go to the very depths? The deceit of conflict, lies of malice. We encounter conflict no matter where we go. The “evil” liar knows their lies will not endure. They also know that they don’t have to… Seek More

Make Things Up

My purpose in describing deceit today was this, to show you where to find the lies. They aren’t everywhere, like shadows they have their own way about them. I just rock back and forth, brushing my hair and telling myself… Seek More
