To the extent that you entertain lies and deceit,

Starlet Williams

To the extent that you entertain lies and deceit, you are held
prisoner in a world cut off from reality. The truth you hide from
yourself, prevents you from growth and fulfillment. The truth you
hide from others, keeps you distantly apart. The truth shines a
bright light on life, so you can clearly see the way to go.
Success, achievement, happiness, joy, fellowship, and fulfillment,
thrive in the warm and nurturing light of the truth. Honesty is the
most direct path to wherever you want to go. Truth and honesty are
often difficult, yet never more difficult, in the end, than deceit.
To think otherwise, is to deceive even yourself. Hiding in the
shadows of falsehood, makes it impossible to move forward. That
the truth is moral and ethical, is no secret. Yet truth is also
practical, efficient, and effective in every worthy pursuit,
something well known by those who enjoy lasting success. Live
in the bright, empowering light. Embrace the truth. It always serves
you best.
– Ralph Marston

    • If honesty is the best policy than introspection in your internal enforcer.

      Introspection (or internal perception) is the self-examination of one’s conscious thoughts and feelings[1]. In psychology, the process of introspection relies exclusively on the purposeful and rational self-observation of one’s mental state; however, introspection is sometimes referenced in a spiritual context as the examination of one’s soul. Introspection is closely related to the philosophical concept of human self-reflection, and is contrasted with extrospection.

    • I understand where you are coming from Renee

      If you are tempted to reveal

      A tale to you someone has told

      About another, make it pass,

      Before you speak, three gates of gold.

      These narrow gates: First, “Is it true?”

      Then, “Is it needful?” In your mind

      Give truthful answer. And the next

      Is last and narrowest, “Is it kind?”

      And if to reach your lips at last

      It passes through these gateways three,

      Then you may tell the tale, nor fear

      What the result of speech may be.
