Speaking the truth

Fear is the worst human disease. And the root of fear often lies in depletion of truth. Where the salinity to the soil of the mind increases, the mind ceases to be fertile. Truth is the tonic to the mind.

Speaking the truth enables you to face the situation as it is. But is it always that?

My best friend is dressed in a weird shirt. And he looks really bad in it. Should I speak the truth?

My best friend's boyfriend has been bitching about her. Should I speak the truth?

The dilemma arises here when the emotions creep in. Because emotions are the anesthetic that enter the mind through the soil. And blind it from truth.

And one prefers to take an anesthetic over a tonic.

Emotions numb us.

And truth takes the backseat.
