Truths and Lies

 

“All you have to do is write one true sentence.”
— Ernest Hemingway

 

I don’t know the truth yet at least part of me wishes to know it. There is also part that loves the mystery and the not knowing. I have known love and treated it badly and well. I have known crushing despair. I have also know joy. There are parts of myself that are rarely satisfied. I seek knowledge yet run from it. I carry contradictions. There are many whom I love. Hate takes a lot of energy. Annoyance is relatively easier. Tho the previous statements are all the truth as I know it, I wonder how many contain lies as well.

Quote of the Day – April 20 2012

“Re-examine all you have been told. Dismiss what insults your soul”
–Walt Whitman

In this blog I’ve talked a lot about truth. I’ve discussed truth that is objective and truth that is subjective and truth that is too big to understand. But what about that that doesn’t ring true? Many of us discover at a fairly young age that our government, teachers, religious leaders have lied to us. As we grow older, we start to learn just how extensively we’ve been lied to and sadder yet how many continue to believe the lies and deliberately expose themselves uncritically to a culture that encourages us to stop thinking, go along with things, Pursue things that are meaningless and perpetuate the corrupt system. Eventually we reach the point where we have to say “STOP!” We dismiss the bullshit and try to clean up our own. As nice as it would be to think that by thinking critically, we can remain untouched by the corruption, I know better. However we can clean ourselves up, live the highest truth we can and expose the lies to those willing to listen. All it takes is clarity and courage. I’m sure I have those around here somewhere 🙂

Quote of the Day – January 8 2012

““Artists use lies to tell the truth. Yes, I created a lie. But because you believed it, you found something true about yourself.”
— Alan Moore

If you think about discovery of truth as being an ever evolving process, than what we believe at any time would be when compared to Truth (large t) would be a lie or at least an approximation. The thing about lies as most of us learn most often they don’t hold up. The more we build on the foundations of the less true, the shakier it becomes until it becomes perceptible to us…How cool when we can learn from art, story, or performance lessons that shake our perceived reality so that the upheavals become less necessary. Namaste, G
