Do you promise to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help you God?........We have heard this before and I personally have seen many answer this oath. The most compelling answers I remember ARE the way it is answered,......... not the answer itself.
I have not always told the truth....I had to learn how to do that. In fact, I was taught to lie. It was presented to me as an alternative to a better outcome. It works too... in the short term even though you are not aware of a gap forming between real and imagined existence until you fall into it. Then, you are in trouble.
Can you handle the truth?
I AM NOT ABLE TO TELL JUST YOU THE TRUTH...EVERYONE ELSE NO PROBLEM
I learned about not telling the truth from others not telling the truth. In other words, I had to LEARN TO LIE. I came to the conclusion that there was a distinctive difference between the two.To tell the truth was more beneficial to an individuals life. Less maintenance too. It may not appear that way AT FIRST, but it is that way.......
The animal kingdom tells the truth and does so without emotions of any kind. Their truth is a raw reality and they have learned to navigate through it as required. Baby chicks while cute, grow up to be eaten along with the Easter bunny.
Plants & Insects have a survival truth which is functional but innocent by its motives. They often disguise themselves for survival purposes often involving ingenious methods to do so. By practicing imitating or threatening behaviors, they ensure the survival of themselves and their species....
People who tell the truth have a different aura around them. A dynamic that while invisible, makes itself known. It is called credibility, character and it looks very good on a human being. There is no stress or guile present. The truth teller's will is relaxed and subservient to their surroundings. It is a peaceful existence when it is....and a noble one when it is not.
When you withhold information, it is not being totally truthful. Yet, we do this while we navigate through our lives. Sometimes it is for a good reason and good can become of it. Parents are familiar with this. But, it requires knowing that you did so...that is how powerful the truth is. It cannot be ignored.
The truth can hurt, alienate, offend and harm people. Telling it and using it without CHARITY in your heart can conjure up some bad experiences and do more harm than good. Wanting to be a good steward of it....is a good beginning. The truth will teach you how to use it while it uses you......if you allow it.
The very act of not telling the truth testifies to the value of truth......the conscience immediately goes to work and your moral compass gets stuck. We may not know what truth is all the time....but we will know when we strayed from it. What an ingenious system built right into ourselves.
Be advised that there are Man's truths which are personal and subjective and there are God's truths which are eternal. Perhaps first learn the one....then the other.............................
The oath that I quoted in the beginning of this post should not be required to be taken. We should be telling this truth all the time and if that was so, what a different world we would live in today.....
