Recently, I had a discussion with a friend about the duality of truth and lies. We discussed whether the opposite of truth is a lie and vice-versa. Much of our discussion involved whether telling the truth is always the best policy. For example, if someone asks you whether or not you like her recent hair style and you don’t, should you be truthful?

Is life always broken? Well, yes and no! In one sense, life is broken in that it has a beginning and end. It’s broken into states of being awake and sleep. But, it’s not broken in the sense that we are either alive or not! Let me explain what inspired the question in the title.

In a recent post on change, I made reference to affirmations.

The only thing that is constant is change! To change everything simply change your attitude! Change is inevitable! To learn means changing your mind!
These are all statements about change that I have heard and used through most of my adult life.
