Thinking Out Loud, Lying Inside.

Today's lesson

Infatuation
Obsession
Addiction
Lust
Love

One will thrill you
One will chill you
One will kill you
One will spill you
One will fill you.

All that glitters isn't gold.

Be careful what you buy,

And what you get sold.

Choose wisely.

And be careful what you do with the "commercials you write in your own head" because they will lead you to lie to yourself about the value of things that may not be at all worthy.

Maybe that's convincing yourself that someone toxic to you is loveable, or as simple as believing your own blog is worthy of riches when it's total fucking drivel.

We love to delude ourselves.

Like I said in my last philosophically slanted post...

People lie to themselves and to others, a lot.

The trick is trying to figure out how not to be fooled.

Discuss it amongst yourselves and be careful with those internal dialogs. Because remember, that guy is full of shit.

Mmmmmmm... watch out for those twisted thoughts, sometimes they deceive. Too true. Stay true to you!

I miss you. Come back from camp!

@katrina-ariel, Can you study how to be deceived? LOL
The person who knows how to be deceived is the person who knows the right. What do you think? Am I right? Did you get what I mean? Hehehe... That is what I call, "Humility or Lowliness".

The trick is trying to figure out how not to be fooled.

Figure out what your motivation is, what's the driver for action!? In that figuring, the fooling may be revealed.

Honesty, Integrity and Sincerity are some powerful tools of such self enquiry.

:D

As Melvin Konnor said "it's almost impossible....." but it's not impossible!

Without these, Id be nothing. I appreciate your comments!

Thank you! And me neither! I'd be lost in fakery without even knowing it was fake, as I once was not so very long ago. Here's a little gem from Alan Watts:
“There was a young man who said though, it seems that I know that I know, but what I would like to see is the I that knows me when I know that I know that I know.”

Just Be what you are ! ...and be original

I'm with @steemflow , be you and who cares what everyone else thinks. They like you, great! If not, well, their loss. In my eyes anyway. To them may not be true and then I would be lying.

Yo @steemitboard, stoppppp tagging @sircork, ......he doesn't like it

Joooooke ;)

Ha, you aren't wrong. The creator of steemitboard is a peer witness and friend of mine named @arcange. I let him do his thing unfettered by my complaints, because the newbies like the leaderboard/incentive of getting the badges he issues. We've tried to bring some similar changes to the condenser interface and blockchain record image data storage over in the githubs to handle some things about image caching that affect our respective projects. There is tagging with a purpose and context and reason, and tagging to beg. We know the difference :D
