Lies, taken as truth, will lull us into a false sense of security, into a dream. Once we have believed that we know the truth, we no longer look for it, and we will not long for it any more. The masters of fabricating lies exploit that very psychological reaction. Let us see who they are and why they kmeep producing their misleading lies relentlessly.
Day by day, we hear from the media, what a lot of lies there are in the world. Politicians lie to us, bankers, business people and our acquaintances do the same. Even we lie to others, when we find it necessary. Where and what are the roots of all those lies?
A thorough and detailed analysis will yield a surprising result: we will find that all those different lies have only one single root, and that is found in ourself. That is nothing but the separate little self, the Ego. The Ego is responsible for all the lies in the world, the Ego is the greatest master of fabricating lies.
The Ego itself is the product of a masterfully constructed lie, as it is in fact a non-existent thing, which is given a pseudo-existence under certain circumstances. The circumstances exert their influence on us through our parents and other people important for us. They are the people who created the Ego in us, when they told us in our childhood who we were and what are names were.
The lies, naturally, did not begin there, since we needed an Ego to survive and collect experience in the world. The lies began when our parents made us believe that we were identical with that Ego, we were nothing but a restricted, separate existence. That was the first lie, and the others were nicely added like new and new layers over the years. With the effective help of other people we fabricated a lie about the world, and another one about our own mission in it. Naturally, we were not aware that these were lies, as we took them as truth, and we honestly believed in them.
