"The temporal imperfection of the human cannot dim the eternal integrity of the Divine."
— Ernest Holmes, "Science of Mind"
A person who lies to others sooner or later gets caught up in his or her own trap because, when one lies, one has to remember what one said and to whom they said it. They set their own trap because it is difficult to remember all of the lies, and after awhile people figure out what was said doesn’t come together to form what was intended for them to believe.
Telling the truth is always the best and easiest way out of any situation. When the truth is told, there isn’t anything to remember about the situation because everyone knows the same story and what happened.
Honesty about anything is part of the divine integrity created in man and is one of the parts which make up the peace of mind we all strive for. One has to be honest with oneself before it can spill over to others in our experience...
