Honesty is such an ugly word, everyone is so untrue.
Except that while people may be untrue, they are often also unreliable, full of mixed motives and notoriously prone to following their own emotions and senses, rather than inclined provide the truth.
How do we provide the truth to others in love?
Well, there’s no easy way to tell the truth in love.
Major philosophies, major religious figures and even major political and social leaders have gone to their deaths either from telling the hard truth in love, or from not telling the truth at all.
Maybe the real key is to focus less on our struggles against what we think resides in other people’s heads and hearts, and to instead begin focusing on our own internal struggles with our own stuff.
And, the truth, once crushed to earth, will rise again.
