A lie is always a lie, and until the root of the lie is exposed, truth will remain hidden beneath the justification caused by the ignorance of the lie. Only truth truly sets one free.
A statement is often made “know the truth and it will set you free” but how is one to know what truth is? This is what I use as a guide whenever something holds me in bondage, the fact that there’s some form of bondage confirms something is a lie and if it’s a lie, it can’t be truth. The lie may be justified as it often is because of one’s conditioning, if there’s an attached story to what arises and it’s being held onto, freedom is lost and the lie takes over. Simply put, if there’s no freedom it’s because there’s no truth. Whether this is a method being used, a program, objects, ideas, concepts, beliefs, religions, sex, or whatnot, the moment it becomes a dependency, it pretty much guarantees it’s a lie and not truth. Truth just is, it doesn’t need a label, and because it’s never binding, that’s how you will recognize it.
If you want to understand truth, look at the lies that hold you in captivity. Truth is liberation from the lies. Many just substitute one lie with another and remain living the lie, although it is thought to be truth. Whatever holds you in bondage is a lie so if something has you in its grip and all you do is to exchange one lie (dependency) for another, you are still in bondage. Programs do this, I know this to be factual. If you need a program to live your life, you are dependent on it as if it was the very thing you have been trying to free yourself from. Dependency is a lie no matter what label it’s given. Read this slowly and see if it isn’t true. The lies of the Conditioned Mind are so subtle, truth is dismissed before it’s even investigated. A lie is always a lie, and until the root of the lie is exposed, truth will remain hidden beneath the justification caused by the ignorance of the lie. Only truth truly sets you free.
