There is of course another side to this, perhaps even darker….
It is when one sees truth, without compassion….
And uses it like a weapon, with the intent initially to enlighten….
But without compassion, it destroys….
It becomes —- hate
Of self, and so —- All
I will, tell you —- True
I, my selves — did that……
I caused incalculable—- Damage
Yes… yes, I did dis……
It did not start out that way, but that
Is no excuse…..
Please, my friends and most especially
Is The Way Of Truth
Love Is Justice
For listening to
Of the four
I am, the last one….
The only one, left
Dishonesty leads to…
Both small & large, and all the degrees in-between…
It could be a nasty joke at someone’s expense, it could be enjoying frustrating someone, or confusing them — or much, much, more….
And like anything that lives, it grows
But lies are not alive….
They are only —- parasites
Why does dishonesty lead to sadism?
If the mind cannot find relief (from eternity) in the truth of the heart, and true communion with people….
The ego will find —- other ways
That is not The Way
The Way Of The Tooth
However parasite predators —- beware….
Those dreams of teeth
You will see, my poor friends…..
Carried through many nations and over many seas,
I arrive, brother, for these wretched funeral rites
so that I might present you with the last tribute of death
and speak in vain to silent ash,
since Fortune has carried you, yourself, away from me.
Alas, poor brother, unfairly taken away from me,
now in the meantime, nevertheless, these things which in the ancient custom of ancestors
are handed over as a sad tribute to the rites,
receive, dripping much with brotherly weeping.
And forever, brother, hail and farewell.
Gaius Valerius Catullus
