White Lies.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


I often use white lies to either get out of a sticky situation, avoid a topic or even involuntarily on some occasions. While I don't necessarily feel guilty each time I do this, sometimes I wonder if I'm doing something 'wrong. .I haven't given this much thought until recently and just needed to know if the concept of right and wrong is relative or absolute. Thanks for the help.


White lies are generally seen as less than completely candid statements you make to spare someone’s feelings. Like answering that the dish your young niece made tasted great, even if it didn’t, because you knew how much effort she put in to it and it would hurt her feelings if you said it wasn’t good.

What you are describing are strategic lies to avoid criticism or embarrassment. It’s not a question of moral absolutism, or moral relativism. By making up stories to make yourself look better, you are eroding your innate connection to shared reality, and that will inevitably end badly for you. Ask yourself what you are afraid of if you tell the truth. Dealing with that outcome is much better for you than what happens to you when make up a story to deny the fear. Because the fear only gets bigger and bigger, and then so do the stories.

    Believe in goodness is not lie, it`s choice, though some people do bad things. People need to think positive.

    Any type of lie is relational only to make things better, juice aren’t test nicer without sweetener same food without salt, love without poem, even every day you tell so many lies to yourself and we never had a single thought of it, we know in deep down it’s a lie but we have a habit to accept it and move on.
