Trickery

There's no use pretending because people are endowed with such an amazing innate intelligence that they'll always see through you. However, it is those same people who are willing to be deceived and reinforce their warped perceptions.  You can never be tricked by others. You always trick yourself.

  1. It is pleasant to see you have much faith in the human mind. I agree that we can only be fooled by convincing ourselves rather than being convinced by others. Without consent the thoughts outside of our own minds hold little influence.

    I feel that the worst trickery we can enact upon ourselves is that were something were not due to the standards of the world outside of ourselves. Being led astray from our true selves takes us down a needlessing troublesome path.

    1. It took me a long time to recover faith in the human mind! lol

      "Above all, do not lie to yourself" is a phrase in The Kramazov Brothers that still pops up in my head from time to time. If you can't be honest to others, at least try to be honest to ourselves. That's the path to our authentic self.

      Thank you for your comment! :D
