Why do people lie, and what is the result? People lie because they are VERY insecure, and their intention is at best to buoy themselves up or to pull others that they feel inferior to down. The base emotion is most likely FEAR. Afraid of looking inferior or loss of something or someone they value. Often they feel they are unsuccessful, or haven’t had enough love, praise, etc. They feel the only way to break through is to bring others down. In the end no one wins, least of all the liar. The liar gets the bad karma, the victim just gets ANNOYED. What’s the point? There is no good to be gained from ANY LIE!
Once a liar starts the lie, there is small chance that they will be able to turn it around. When one’s life, then becomes a web of lies it will occur not only now in this life, but the habit remains as a part of one’s eternal soul. Lies are wrong speech, meant to do harm and benefit only oneself. A liar can never be trusted until they purify or truly change.
Of course the bottom line is intention and compassion. If one lies continually there is no compassion. The intention is to harm others and distort or destroy truth. Lies can be debilitating. One develops a habit they cannot break and it eventually destroys them, ruins life after life and all wholesome potential for happiness. A liar does not have peace. They cannot attain peace or blessing until the very habit is broken and repented from.
The saddest thing about lying is that one eventually believes their own con, and then lifelong confusion results, a broken personality that lives in their own glass house, locked in a sea of relentless sickness, tragedy and drama. The more they lie the sicker they get. All to boost their own weak ego!!!
The jail house of their own making is all-pervasive. There is no love, no freedom, no comfort or happiness because the liar has only lied. That terrible weight will be theirs to bear alone. But there are no winners. That is because a seed rotten to the core is incapable of bearing ANY good fruit. And because we are all one in nature, everyone gets hurt. What a ridiculous way to live this short life. How senseless to live in one’s own pile of lies. Like a baby condemned to live in its filthy diaper, no hope for change, and the pain never ends. So unnecessary when we have such great capacity! I choose love, life, a wholesome mind, pure speech, forgiveness and peace! And I wish you the same………..LIAR (and you know who you are).
Liars lie – and can not be trusted by anyone. Anyone who trusts a liar is either a liar themselves or a FOOL!!
“I have a higher and grander standard of principle than George Washington. He could not lie; I can, but I won’t.”
― Mark Twain
Finally………Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies. (Psalm 34:12-13) I will live by this one!!
PS……..Thank you God for delivering me from the previous drama and pain that I called a life. Your plans are sooooooooo much better!!
