Truth: I Lie to Me
Each of us must find our truth in the present.
I ponder truth, and all that comes to mind is lies.
Lie to me. I do it all the time. I tell my lies when I’m future self. Future self lies every day. Future self will . . . write later, exercise tomorrow, eat healthier—next week.
Lie to me. I do it all the time. Nebulous future self is my biggest lie. Truth lies in my substance as a living being—a woman, mother, writer, gardener. My core truth resides in the now—with every breath, thought, movement, with every word, written or spoken.
The truth of my fleeting self is that I am here for but a minute capsule of time—my present—so why would I ever lie to me?
The Great Until also puts powerful brakes on living my truth.
Lie to me. I do it all the time: “Until the dishes are done, floor mopped, mortgage paid (fill in the blank ____________). Until the Great Until, I continue to lie to me.
I lie to me. I do it all the time. It paralyzes me.
Will I lie to me today? I must, we all must, find our truth in present self and banish The Great Until to the great beyond.
