The Sun, The Moon, And The Truth

10:40 PM


"Three things cannot be long hidden: 
the sun, the moon, and the truth." 
-Buddha



Everyone lies, including me. As the song goes, "Honesty is such a lonely word. Everyone is so untrue." 



Still, it hurts like a mother when you're the one being lied to. Especially when the person would rather die than tell you the truth, and you know you did nothing to deserve it. I think it's the thought that you don't even matter to know the truth that hurts the most. It's discrediting. It's condescending.



It makes you regret all the lies you told before as karma's acting like an unforgiving bitch to you. Also makes you angry at yourself for trusting too much. Oh, well.  Life's like that.

I guess we all need to remember to think about what our words can do to our lives, and other people's lives before we say anything.

Words are potent indeed. It can make or break us.

Lies, no matter how sugar coated they may be will always always always break the liar and the person being lied to. I don't know why we have to build a web of lies but I think, desperation or ego sometimes get in the way that you choose lying over telling the truth.

Maybe you want to protect the other person's feelings, or you just want to get away with something without being a d*ckhole.

No matter what your intentions are, the end still does not justify the means. Whichever angle you try to look at it, it's still ugly. It's still unfair to the persons involved. It still destroys what has been built.

One lie can change everything else, especially the way other people see you.  

Funny thing about the truth is that you can run from it, you can hide from it but, you can never escape it. It will always come out.

It's like the universe put a default button to it that no law or adjustment can ever hide it. No lie can ever erase it. No one can ever change it. No matter how hard you try to convince other people, including yourself, the truth will find a way to reveal itself...always.



Amazing! It's like the Law of Gravity. It's like the sun and the moon. No matter how cloudy it gets, it's just there and it will come out. It cannot be hidden forever.

The funny thing about lying is watching the liar's reactions. It can be really entertaining.



He seems convincing at first, fighting for what he seems to believe in but eventually crumbles before your eyes. He avoids you like a plague and eventually shuts his mouth.

See, it's tiring to defend what's not true. You have to constantly think about new ideas, new reasons, new ways to convince people. You become inconsistent until you can't keep up with yourself. You forget where you've started, where you left off and you don't know when and where to end.

It's actually fun to observe how the liar loses his power when the truth finally unveils itself.

Ultimately, no lie can ever overshadow the truth.  

But the best thing about telling and knowing the truth is that it sets you free.

  2. My husband had an aunt (by marriage) who could not tell the truth. To her a lie was the way to convince you to help her - - and she was good at it. God says there are seven things He really hates, and lies are on that list. My parents punished me more for lying than any other disobedience. I am very careful to tell the truth, and there are ways to be tactful without lying. Thank you for sharing your lovely words of Truth with us here at Tell me a Story.

  3. The truth will always be better than the lie, even with the truth is hard to bear. Lies only bring more sorrow than whatever truth they were trying to hide.

  7. The truth sets us free. The more we experience that, the deeper we know it. Sorry you were lied to. :( That's always so difficult to handle.
