A Façade Of Who You Are
From the moment that we are born we find ourselves in a battle to do 2 things, to force our own desires and intents, or to acclimate ourselves to the world around us. Regardless of which one we’re walking in, the purpose can always be brought back to the intent of self-gratification. It’s only natural that a child would cry and flail his arms and legs to communicate an urgent need. So, even at a young age we are learning to manipulate our environment through behavior. The issue begins when we begin to understand that we can manipulate things to appease to our own lust, even deceiving ourselves to believe that our intents are acceptable. And the power to do so increases as we venture into this life. The power of self-deception is rooted in the corruption of self-endeavor.
