{Lie, Lying, Lies }

After spending time meditating on truth; I decided in order to fully understand I should research it’s opposition: Lie.

lie

As usual of lately while researching the definition of lie, lying, lies I have come across ridiculous definitions! Lie produces numerous definitions that are not of nature to what a lie actually is! To my amazement I had to read too many definitions and paragraphs of information before arriving at one that actually involved a lie!

According to Merriam Webster;
~» to have a place in relation to something else. Example (the real reason lies deeper).
~» to have an effect through mere presence, weight, or relative position. Example (remorse lay heavily on him).
~» to make an untrue statement with intent to deceive.
~» to create a false or misleading impression.
~» to bring about by telling lies.

Google search was more helpful in finding information in regards to a more appropriate or informant description.
It explains that a lie is the blunt term used to impute dishonesty.

Also:
A) an assertion of something known our believed by the speaker to be untrue with intent to deceive.
Or
B) an untrue or inaccurate statement that may or may not be believed true by speaker.
So that to me explains that there is a difference between lying on purpose to deceive and lying while believing the lie yourself which means also a lie wether or not the speaker knows it or not! Interesting!

Lying is also;
~» marked by or containing falsehoods.
~» something intended or serving to convey a false impression; impostor.
~» a false statement made with deliberate intent to deceive; an intentional untruth; a falsehood.

A word associated with “Lie” is:
Prevaricate;
~» to avoid telling the truth by not directly answering a question.
~» to deviate from the truth.

Honestly there are many different ways to lie…..either intentional, un-intentional, or by withholding!

My next post I will go over some of the different ways we as humans lie, yes there are many terms with definitions of what + how a specific lie is! If we meditate on how many ways we are lying  daily, we will be able to understand how to be more truthful…..Honestly and within!

    1. I know right! I had no idea that there were so many different types of lies! Even when we don’t know something is a lie, it is still a form of lying! I think straight forward lying is selfish because we do not want to deal with the consequences of the truth! Thanks
