BELIEVE UM THE FIRST TIME!
It is a puzzling thing. The truth knocks on the door and you say, Go away, I,m looking for the truth, and the truth goes away. Puzzling. R. Pirsig
It doesn’t matter how high or low we are on the Totem Pole when a person tell us who they are, especially if we haven’t asked, Believe Them The First Time. Once you have been told, there are those waiting for you to do or say something stupid, contradictory to who they say they are. The old folks say; You don’t believe fat meat is greasy. (hardheaded)
As far as I am concerned, You are who you say you are until you’re not, and my opinion will not be based on what I think I know or what you look like…
Some of those who tell their story are banking on us to have problems with hearing and or accepting the truth. Often we throw everybody in the same category; The Liar Club when they share something personal, like good news, so telling the truth is a bonus since you won’t be believed regardless of the truth.
Now don’t get me wrong, I know some Christ-like people may not tell the truth, so I rely on my faith and the teachings of Jesus Christ; Action proves words.
It seems as if we live in a World that is a huge arcade, full of games designed for the shrewd to eat the very life out of those that don’t play well. For safety purposes don’t you let the “New Norm”, Greed Rules, be your Jesus Christ, our Redeemer.
A fool, the one who know you better than you know yourself, is just that, a fool until he realizes he knows nothing about you; some never get it. Normally it’s our actions that are the eye-openers. If you say to me, I am this or that, my response is nothing less or more than what you said about yourself, and I will believe you until I find the truth or prove a lie.
It’s correct to give people the benefit of the doubt while being cautious. The last thing I want is to be caught in a snare and looked upon as easy pickings. Thank God am not one of those who believes I was given some type of insight the rest of the world is not privy too.
It is my belief if we cannot accept the truth, or have some perception of a lie, especially when it comes straight from the horse’s mouth, is foolish?.
Listen while you can hear, there are some who believe, We believe in what we know the least of, hmm, and there are those who believe This is the chief occupation of mankind. Wow, what a thought and if that’s true we have some real issues with trust and beliefs, creating confusion for a number of reasons, one is our emotions.
Emotions often come into play when it’s about our own personal brand of knowledge, and that is, it is not to be doubted or questioned, even if the facts have been altered. So with this flaw, we still stand by our guns, just to be shot down when the truth finally rears its head, then most just pick themselves up and act as if nothing happened. (shamed, or not taking blame)
I wonder if some were born with Lying Eyes, that dominate the mind, with their self-proclaimed abilities. I understand there is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact. Although we all see things differently, I believe some build walls to separate themselves from the truth.
It’s amazing to me how one with a blinded mind, having absolutely no idea of who or what we are, can conjure up the ability to tell our life story and all we have to do is walk across the street. I believe phony people know who they are and what they do, so they just do what they do, intentionally, it’s in their DNA? I pray the world is not returning to the days of Sodom and Gomorrah; Where the bad outweighed the good.
Speaking of walking across the street, a few years back a woman pushing a baby stroller passed in front me and a friend as we were waiting for a traffic light to change, suddenly this friend announced how disappointed she was in this young lady, even after the lady had passed the rant continued.
She complained about the woman having a baby out-of-wedlock, she talked about how disappointed her mother had to be with her having a child at such a young age, and she added, this young lady was probably living with her parents. I was listening and feeling sorry for that woman until I asked my friend how long has she known the woman with the stroller.
When she said she had never seen her before in her life she just knows people, I was through, I learned something new about this friend, something I didn’t like; she knew too much about something she knew nothing of.
I now have a limited connection with that person; too overly opinionated for my taste, I discovered who she was through her actions. Am sure there are others that speak about those they do not know as if they were connected at the hips, or a Fly on the Wall. Perhaps we have all done it, but now I know to check myself.
What about those who feel as if they have the right to be a reckoning force when it concern matters full of unsubstantiated data that is filling our heads with opinions full of nonsense, doubt, and discouragement? I say pray for them, we all claim to know something different.
For insistence, To Tell The Truth is a sure way to be labeled a liar, so if something happens they can honestly say, I told you, and they would be right. So I’ll say it again when someone tells me Who They Are, I Believe Them the First Time, they have my full attention, and if they are not who they say they are, their actions will expose them eventually.
So I watch and wait until I can get a clear vision of who people really are by putting on my listening ears, and wearing my common sense like an overcoat, especially if they have a seemly negative attitude.
Just so you know, there are people who know the, To tell the truth, tactics and know the payoffs well. It may be possible from them to sniff you out, and perhaps play on your mindset. You know? Everybody is a liar cause you know it all, so they’ll tell you the truth, but you won’t believe them?
For some reason, we just can’t hear the truth from someone else, some say we lean to our own understanding, making the job of a liar easy. The smart tell the truth, whether it for a good cause, morals or not, they know most won’t accept it, especially if it is way out in left field. (ridiculous). Believe me, there are some strange things that can and will happen and be true.
Smart people also know it’s best, to tell the truth; because it’s easier to remember what is said; Lying presents its own set of problems; Besides forgetting what we say, we run the risk of our noses growing longer and longer for the World to see.
Will it ever end? Probably not in my lifetime. Until then, I will continue to take people at their word by believing in them the first time, then take that information to Jesus Christ and ask him to be my fact checker so I won’t have too many issues about what they say next.
