For most of us, lies define not just half our lives but our whole lives.
Rigorous examination of our interior and exterior world is a frightening undertaking.
We lack the capacity or can’t muster the strength of will to think beyond the prepackaged lies we’ve been force-fed since birth.
There is an awful lot of “manure” to dig through… and where does one even begin to shovel?
We lack the depth or courage necessary to “see” that the emperor is, indeed, not wearing any clothes.
Facing the truth would then challenge us to ask more of ourselves, to face our demons, to accept the futility of it all…
So we default or choose to live with “comforting” lies and other delusions… God help us.
