Don't lie to me.

I know it's an impossible thing to ask;
We are always lying, lying our lives off, acting some ingrained, meaningless part.

I know it's hypocritical of me to ask,
I know I am lying,
But I would love to see us without the fabric of our lies--

We would be beautiful, naked in our now-known truth.
For a moment...
We cannot hope for more than a moment of truth.

Your very brave to desire such a thing...I've become tired of the lies myself quite recently. Reading that felt familiar...


Intention is the core of all conscious life. It is our intentions that create karma, our intentions that help others, our intentions that lead us away from the delusions of individuality toward the immutable verities of enlightened awareness.

Sometimes, the rote motions of lies are easier than the truth, and sometimes, when everyone knows the truth, that hurts less than the naked truth can. There are different kind of truth, and they are called for in different situations... just speculations on truth in general. I like the poem. it made me think
*If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?*
