Cover-up

When we make a mistake
We cover it up as best we can
By trivializing it…

DidiArtist, 12.12.2021

Untruth, like spreading waves

Every untruth unfolds
More and more, spreads
As soon as it meets people
To use them, abuse them
As forwarding mouthpiece
When they have no ears and eyes….

Not honest towards oneself

We sometimes want to see ourselves differently
From what we really are
We put on a mask
And hide us from ourselves

We seek refuge in a world
That we have tailored for ourselves
Defend it, uphold it
Like a big lie…

DidiArtist, 03.12.2021

Why do we lie?

We lie because we are afraid,
The truth will come out
Because otherwise we miss an advantage
Because we’re keeping a secret
Because the truth can hurt
Because we want to look better
Because we are not aware of it
Because we are not honest with ourselves
Because we deceive ourselves
Because we want to be what we are not
Because we are inconsiderate
Because we want to hide something
Because we have not learned
To be honest to ourselves

Each lie has its start in our head
It multiplies easily…

Self-deception

It comes on tiptoe
Sneaking up on us
Like a predator on its victim
While we’re the last to notice it…

Empty Phrases

 

 

There are often worlds between words and deeds.
Yesterday still lifted into the sky
Today the cloak of friendship thrown off
With feelings in the wind escaped

Words that sounded credibly faded away
Broken into pieces, lost their validity
On the parquet of unsteadiness
Turning away from friendliness, kindness

Those flattering words echo in the memory
Sounds from afar of moments past
Leaving stars burnt out
Empty phrases, words without content

Shall we believe in flattering words?
Those that turn in the wind?
Lose their content, are forgotten easily?
Those which praised us yesterday and curse us today?

Man promises much and says a lot
Within the turning of his kaleidoscopic feelings
To change his credibility in the wheel of time
Dissolved into punishing silence

Only the language of the heart remains constant
That of the mind is subject to change…

A leaf in the wind…

Journey to become honest and pure

 

 

To be honest
Is a matter of consciousness
To know our own mistakes
A process – walking into the depth

It is easy to say: “I am honest”
How many things we have overseen
Have not considered as honesty, dishonesty
In our daily life?

Yes, I am honest according of what I know
About my present state of mind
Present knowledge of myself
But what about the ignorance of myself?

Then I have missed many things
To consider as honesty, dishonesty
So walking in ourselves
Is to discover, to know ourselves – more and more…

What I claimed yesterday as honesty
May be today under a broadened horizon
So we bear honesty on our shoulders
To get lighter and lighter from ourselves…

The more we find us
The more we lose us
Detached from the world and even ourselves
To become pure in our hearts…
