Truth vs. lies

Choosing truth:
  • Is to uphold a genuine character. 
  • Is to realise that true being is the best possible consequence in the face of life's trials, suffering, and spitefulness. 
Choosing to lie:
  • Only leads to chaos. 
  • Often results in horrible consequences.

Things fall apart because we have not paid sufficient attention. Sometimes there are unpredictable and uncontrollable events but failure to prepare, when the necessity for preparation is well known—that’s sin.

Daily choices
Each day, we make the same choice hundreds of times: whether to lie or tell the truth.

And we ignore the profound impact these seemingly inconsequential decisions have on our brain and our life.

Rather than lying and truthfulness hinging on the impersonal logic of assertions and declarations, one should also attend to the broader context of the utterance.
