It is easy to deceive ourselves. If it sounds good, we believe it. That which fits our agenda is deemed to be best, and all else is left in the dust.
We claim many things, and fail to test their veracity. The outcome is not important, only the intentions. And so, we pave the road to our own destruction.
Before taking any path, consider where it leads. Looking past what you want is the best way to see. Rationalizing things makes them look shiny and new, but they are really just the same old evil.
We whisper sweet nothings into our own ears. The bigger the lie, the more desire to believe it. After all, to do otherwise would be to admit that we merely wished to consume on our lusts.
Oh, the heroes unsung who have painted up the most vile wickedness to resemble the greatest good! But when the colors run, all is revealed. And the result is monstrous, to say the least.
Honesty requires that we question ourselves most thoroughly. Scrutinize your doings, and why they were really done. For what we bury deepest, someone will eventually dig up.
