True Lies

Lie for the sake of lie. Lying frequently is a habit that could ruin the life of others as well as yours. If there is an issue, it should be openly communicated and if lied upon, could translate into a bigger issue. If true picture of the problem is known, a way could be found out to solve it. But if, the problem itself is not clear, then it becomes difficult to find a solution and it is quite possible that you could end up finding a solution that could be irrelevant.

Some people become so used to lying that they are not even aware that they are lying. It becomes their inherent habit and in the process they keep creating problems over problems. Though in Bhagvad-gita, lying has found support from Lord Krishna. He proclaims, "Lie spoken for the benefit of mankind is not a lie and is equivalent to 100 truths". Liars always stick to those lines to justify, when caught. This way they invite more problems.

What we can conclude from here is "Lying makes a man imperfect". Though truth is bitter, you should have the courage to face it. Running away from reality won't solve the problem, but would inflate it unnecessarily. Face it to solve it and get rid of it as soon as possible.
