Illusions of Truth

I heard this week that the hardest thing to disprove is a statement put out that is based on truth. Then it is put out again to the public with just a few things changed to alter the meaning. This makes it very hard to refute because by the time it is debunked the illusion is planted in people’s minds. I wondered how many times this occurs in our life’s experience. It happens in politics, religion, Facebook, and advertising. The news media and weekly’s like the National Inquirer are most skilled at this. I began to wonder, how much of what we believe is really only an illusion of the real thing?img_2119

Illusions of Truth

Looking deep into our soul

Finding a thirst for truth

Examining what we hear

Studying what we read

Finding details missing

Reading between the lines

Embellishing the script

Expanding to make it better

Calling the faithful

Preaching the gospel of hope

Believing that our illusion

Seen through smoky glass

Is the Truth we all

Want to hear

Border lining on Truth

Could our version

Be the real thing?

How can one question the Truth?
