The foundation for a believable lie is the Truth!

Thus, one lays a foundation of Truth, then constructs a fabrication upon it.  Some may consider this a half-truth.  However, the last portion of the half-truth is the full intention, a lie to promote themselves or what they represent.

Lies becomes believable because of the foundation.

Inadvertent lies are abundant.  They are at times created by those intending to do good.  Inadvertent lies are created because of personal ignorance, a gossiper seeking attention, deception, or blindness.  They are all built upon a foundation.  Believable, inadvertent lies are built upon a foundation of truth.

Such constructs may become large edifices.  These become the dwelling place of many, living and dwelling in the lie.  These dwelling places encircle Social, Political, and Educational falsehoods mistakenly called Understanding.

The Enlightened hold to the foundation but reconstruct the edifice of falsehood into temples of truth and enlightenment.

'Truth' is trapped in a lie.  ש = three flames burning.  The Light of the three triads of the Tree of Life.  Some also claim three point reflect the foundation of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.   Consider the Light (ש) trapped in the word 'Conspiracy': קשר = qesher.

In the same way, we see 'truth' turned into a 'lie".  It starts with 'light' (ש), but is made into a lie:

 שקר = sheqer (lie).[1]

Let's build carefully, lest we construct an elaborate lie, and many become inhabitants of that false construct!

  • Some real truth nestled in this.

  • Very interesting. I struggle with lying, to myself and others. I have found that lies are good for "fixing" short-term problems .... but long-term? They can destroy your life and destroy your prospects in life. You will never really be free when you are someone who tells lies - you will always be trapped in the lie somehow. The false construct of an elaborate lie will always restrict you long-term. I speak, unfortunately, from experience. 

    • A challenge to each of us is to "condescend to people of low estate."  In an effort to become more, we want others to see us in the light we desire for ourselves.  Even when we have actually become fairly successful in life, we can still aspire.  

      Yet, if we can aspire to make ourselves smaller than we actually are, how refreshing for others to discover that we are more than they thought.  Then, there is the increased fellowship we experience, making others feel more comfortable in our company.

      What great strength we manifest each time we overcome; a challenge always set before us.
