Sharon: “We all lie, all the time to create a good opinion of ourselves, it’s so woven into the fabric of how we interact with each other and has more to do with saving face and looking good than it does with being honest. This sends a message that both parties don’t really want to know the truth. You’re are demanding a one-sided opinion and that they agree with you.”
It just goes to show how defended the ego truly is. What’s it defended against? Speaking the Truth, that’s what! Knowing the truth about ourselves and how we truly feel about others. If you don’t know how you truly feel, or how you truly feel about others, how are you going to set appropriate boundaries? Nobody’s perfect, but we have to start being honest with ourselves. When we’re honest with ourselves, we can be honest with others and let’s face it, this world needs more honesty.
With honesty, deception doesn’t happen and if we want to change this world and stop this kind of thing from happening again, we’re going to have to learn to be scrupulously honest with ourselves and others.
We spend our time NOT saying what we want to, and learning how to play games in conversation. Then we go home and complain to our spouses about what a lousy day we had at work. No wonder. Imagine how much better you’d feel if you could be honest all the time. It’s our lying and deceptions that lower our frequency.
Me: Ivo, what could be the ramifications for people who indulge in behaviors like this?
Ivo: They do well at cocktail parties, my love.
Me: LOL. Schmoozing. Absolute fakery.
Ivo: In fact, your world is very defended against speaking the truth, my love. Very much so. You do not realize the tangled web you are living in, at least many do not, some are beginning to understand now. The truth is the only way forward. And it may not be to everyone’s liking because it would be considered anti-social behavior. But truth is the only way.
Me: I’ve told people straight out that I don’t like them.
Ivo: And perhaps this is a bit direct but nonetheless, I know you, you are a seeker of truth and Light because you realize that that is your path to me and your path back to what you consider to be sane. It is. The insanity you are all living now is because of the web of lies that you all live.
Me: Yes. You say one thing yet do another. We try to do things and the reason we try without accomplishing anything is our lack of power.
Ivo: Exactly. Lying reduces your frequency. The truth raises it. Look through examples of how you interact daily with others, particularly in false environments such as the workplace.
Me: I can’t think of how many times I said hello to the CFO when I was really thinking the company was a bunch of money sucking chiselers that should pay me more.
Ivo: Your world is noted for its cheap labour.
Me: I’ll bet. But you smile at CFO, the CEO etc etc so you can keep your job because you have to pay bills. It’s insincerity and that’s the defended ego at work.You smile and say hello to your neighbors when in fact you really want to tell them to keep their music down at night time so you can sleep. But you don’t want to create a fuss, so you say nothing. You want to appear to be Mrs Nice Lady rather than being honest and perhaps working out a compromise with your neighbors.
Ivo: Earth has a long way to go, my love. Absolute honesty is the only way forward.
Me: Yes. And being around people who don’t even realize how badly they’re lying makes me crazy.
Ivo: Send them love, my dear.
Me: I know. I just want to put the message out to people that if you want to catch yourself lying, watch when you’re interacting, particularly with strangers, when you’re socializing and when you’re being nice. Be careful of being nice. You’re trying to act in an acceptable way and this is the defended ego.
And this is a time for all to have courage. You have to understand the defended ego is trying to keep you from developing intimacy with others. So we lie to look good, but to keep ourselves separate from others. I have dispensed with a lot of that. If I hadn’t, these video’s wouldn’t be out all over the internet. Many people know me who are absolute strangers. They also know I have many boundaries and expectations of how I expect to be treated. It works. You can still find friends that way.
Ivo: My love, you have done well. You are a beacon of truth for this planet.
Me: Thank you Ivo.
Ivo: I love you.
