Liars Seldom Believe The Truth

Hypocrites are the first to call others a hypocrite, the power hungry assume everyone is after the same control they seek, the greedy thinks everyone wants to steal what they posses.

"Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?" Matthew 7: 1-3

This is very good news for those that would be wise. All that is needed is to determine what bothers you most in others and you have likely found a major fault to heal within yourself.

You may decide that you like the fault and wish to keep and nourish it. That is your choice, but it is no choice to deny any of the factors that define you. If you determine to rid yourself of perceived faults instead, do not expect it to be an easy or quick journey.

You can will to recreate yourself, but those that have gathered around you due to your nature will not willingly suffer its change. They have joined with you precisely because they share your faults. Your changes will point out to them their own uncomfortable short comings, and what you thought were friends may be the first to condemn you.

You will find new and more true friends as you develop in your commitment, and you will be less often fooled by other's self-serving accusations. As you enhance your own perceived personal worth so will your personal satisfaction increase, even if there is no end to the opportunities for self improvement.

We are all on a journey with an indefinite end, some ride and hide, others will discover opportunities and enlarge their lives. Along with discovering your passions do not neglect discovering your shortcomings. Pay attention to both, it is your life - live it to its fullest.
