I think I was spending a little too much of time in pursuit of truth and disseminating to people who care a hoot. Something of one against many because others are mute spectators or silent supporters with no opinion of theirs though they occupy high places in their career and are wise enough to judge. And the entire effort, unless recorded, goes into trash in WhatsApp which I don’t want to. I would prefer better mediums to extract the juice.
As the saying goes, everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth. In pursuit of truth, you are never going to finish your life because a lie is attractive and always adjusted to suit a particular taste. For every good reason there is to lie, there is a better reason to tell the truth.
I would prefer to die in a thorn of truth than on roses of lies. Better to be free than to be a slave. Great to know the fact, analyse them than to remain ignorant.
Also I seldom want to spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door. I am not a Buddhist but I remember Buddha said - However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?
Any WhatsApp groups you may be - whether it is family or a sports or friends, what transpires are political talks with cent percent forwarded messages and images, most of them utter lies camouflaged as truth. And the nature that I have, I will have no option but to respond to lies which I don’t want to waste my time on. I have some crucial phases coming up in my career and that certainly should not be wasted this way.
