Who Else Wants the Truth NOW?

No more Lies! I want the Truth NOW!

Do you, like me want the Truth NOW?

Lies are insidious falsehoods that feed off our very Life Blood, from the moment they are said, no matter if we are the victim or perpetrator.

Lies are everywhere, in our own hearts and minds, in the words we utter and even in those we omit. Not saying anything to ‘keep-the-Peace’, is effective yet remain a Lie.

Lies have an unacknowledged but serious effect:

  • Tension is conjured
  • Distrust slowly seeps into the heart
  • The body weakens and becomes sick as it struggles with the weight
  • Energy resources begin to dwindle, it takes effort to maintain
  • They crowd our thinking
  • Lies steal our joy and time

Like a fog, lies descend over the Truth, blanketing it in secrecy and deceit. Only to be uncovered by those who are brave enough to seek the Truth diligently.

Ask yourself “Am I brave enough to face the Truth?”. If your answer is yes, begin by Subscribing, this way you will intermittently receive notification of educational Blog Post like these.

Then do a little introspection; do your reactions to the Truth elicit more of it? Do you know how to keep the flow of honesty going, and perhaps even extract a confession?

I have first hand experience of becoming ‘brave enough’. I have been the perpetrator and the victim, just like everyone else. Living with both Lies and the Truth, is part of growing up. And, hopefully, as we mature we choose the Truth. We develop the courage, yes it takes lots of courage, to speak and act truthfully.

And so it is, I want the Truth Now!

What is Truth, and what is it not?

Truth is fact that is backed by evidence and/or witness.

Truth is not an interpretation, a sense, a suspicion, nor is it and opinion.

We expect Truth to be present in our homes, our work environment. Our relationships should be based on it. Our media and government should respect it. Yet sadly, it is not.

The Hard and Ugly Truth

Truth is seldom easy to express, and still I prefer it over it’s destructive counterpart. With Truth everyone knows what they’re dealing with, an attitude can be adjusted, an opinion amended, suspicion eradicated.

With Truth:

  • Trust can be restored
  • Relationships heal
  • Peace-of-Mind is regained
  • Forgiveness has an open door
  • Co-operation to find a solution is ensured

Inaccurate Results – False Positives, and why they occur

Inaccurate Results – False Positives are results that indicate that a subject was lying, when indeed they were not.

Inaccurate Results - False Positives

Irrespective the methodology of Lie Detecting (Polygraph or Voice Stress Analysis), the process and protocols remain the same.

Every well trained, qualified and ethical examiner will always follow a specific process to conduct either a Polygraph or Voice Stress Test.

Should this specific process not be followed, Inaccurate Results -False Positives, may result.

The specific process referred to is the following:

PRE-TEST PHASE

CONSENT:

The subject is advised that the examination process is voluntary and that their written consent is required to confirm that they are offering their full co-operation of their own free will.

SHOULD THIS STEP BE LEFT OUT, THE EXAMINER IS GUILTY OF A MAJOR BREACH OF PROTOCOL!

PURPOSE:

The subject’s understanding of the purpose of the test is determined and therefore further ensures their co-operation.

FITNESS BEFORE EXAMINATION:

The subject is questioned about their physical and psychological state of health to ascertain if there are problems that could have a negative influence on responses to the examination.

SHOULD THIS STEP BE LEFT OUT, THE EXAMINER IS GUILTY OF A MAJOR BREACH OF PROTOCOL!

METHODOLOGY:

The method of truth verification is described and explained in detail, so also the process that will be followed, in order for the subjects’ fears and uncertainties of what to expect, to be addressed.

SHOULD THIS STEP BE LEFT OUT, THE EXAMINER IS GUILTY OF A MAJOR BREACH OF PROTOCOL!

PRE-TEST INTERVIEW:

Information regarding the subject’s personal data, medical history, and working experience is obtained.

Their understanding and value of honesty with people who trust them, is determined. This allows for the examiner to create a psychological set of Control Questions against which reaction to the Relevant Questions, are compared.

SHOULD THIS STEP BE LEFT OUT, THE EXAMINER IS GUILTY OF A MAJOR BREACH OF PROTOCOL!

The questions to be asked during the test must be thoroughly explained and reviewed in this pre-test phase, and the subject must be given opportunity to respond. This is crucial to obtaining reliable results as possible misunderstanding or misinterpretations are eliminated.

SHOULD THIS STEP BE LEFT OUT, THE EXAMINER IS GUILTY OF A MAJOR BREACH OF PROTOCOL!

IN-TEST PHASE
TEST PROCESS

The examiner must lead the test process following exactly the process he explained to the subject previously, as this still further engenders trust and co-operation, as well as maintaining the least levels of stress to the subject.

SHOULD THE EXAMINER NOT ADHERE, THEY ARE GUILTY OF A MAJOR BREACH OF PROTOCOL!

CADENCE

The waiting period between questions differ for Polygraph and Voice Stress Analysis; the cadence between questions is precisely determined to allow for the subject’s homeostasis to return to neutral before the next question is posed to them.

SHOULD THE EXAMINER NOT ADHERE, THEY ARE GUILTY OF A MAJOR BREACH OF PROTOCOL!

QUESTIONS

The Control- and Relevant Questions must be asked in exactly the same way as was previously explained in the Pre-Test phase. Should the examiner change even just one word, primarily misunderstanding and/or misinterpretation may occur, and secondary, the subject is put under undue stress.

SHOULD THE EXAMINER NOT ADHERE, THEY ARE GUILTY OF A MAJOR BREACH OF PROTOCOL!

INACCURATE RESULTS – FALSE POSITIVES, AND WHY THEY OCCUR!

Inaccurate Results - False Positives

So, what is the cause of Inaccurate Results – False Positives?

THE EXAMINER BEING GUILTY OF A MAJOR BREACH OF PROTOCOL!

BREACH OF PROTOCOL

When an examiner is guilty of a major breach of protocol, meaning they did not follow the precise process they were trained to, Inaccurate Results – False Positives may be obtained.

Inaccurate Results – False Positives are the culmination of many unseen factors and occurrences, such as:

  • Should the subject’s understanding and value of honesty with people who trust them, not be determined, the psychological set of Control Questions against which reaction to the Relevant Questions are compared, will be weak. This weakness will result in low definition of reaction to Relevant Questions. Leading to Inaccurate Results – False Positives.
  • Should the questions to be asked during the test not be thoroughly explained and reviewed, and the subject not given opportunity to respond, a door is opened primarily to misunderstanding and/or misinterpretations. Secondary, the deceptive subject may choose to interpret as suits them, and their physiology will always respond accordingly. Leading to Inaccurate Results – False Positives.
  • Should the examiner not lead the test process exactly as was explained to the subject previously, undue stress and subsequent physiological reaction will occur. Leading to Inaccurate Results – False Positives.
  • Should the waiting period between questions not be adhered to, the possibility of ‘bleeding’ is created. ‘Bleeding’ is the measurement of a reaction to a previous, previous question. A delayed response if you will, because the subjects’ homeostasis (Fight or Flight) hasn’t been allowed to return to neutral. Leading to Inaccurate Results – False Positives.
  • Should the questions during the test phase not be asked in exactly the same way as was explained to the subject previously, again primarily misunderstanding and/or misinterpretation may occur, and secondary, the subject is put under undue stress and their physiology will respond accordingly. Leading to Inaccurate Results – False Positives.

In my opinion for specific case related examinations, an acceptable ratio of Lie Detecting Results is 80/20.

80% of specific tests done usually result in No Deception Indicated. The subject was being truthful when answering the Relevant Questions.

20% of specific tests done usually result in Deception Indicated. The subject was not being truthful when answering the Relevant Questions.

In my opinion also, for Periodic Screenings, this ratio changes to 90/10.

90% of Screenings done usually result in No Deception Indicated. The subject was being truthful when answering the Relevant Questions.

10% of Screenings done usually result in Deception Indicated. The subject was not being truthful when answering the Relevant Questions.

This ratio indicates that your Honesty Management Program is successful, ie. Employees accept the parameters for proper conduct and understand the consequences when they do not.

Further, in my opinion, no ratio applies to Pre-employment Tests.

CONSEQUENCES OF INACCURATE RESULTS -FALSE POSITIVES,AND OUR tool to determine if you have ground to demand a re-test

When an employee’s results from a Lie Detecting Test returns as Deception Indicated, usually the consequences are dire.

Immediately trust between employee and employer is broken down. Further, the employee will be put on or remain suspended from work, until an investigation is completed. I do not need to explain the implication of that.

The worst consequence of Inaccurate Results – False Positives, in my view, is that the Lie Detection Industry and examiners lose the trust of their clients and subjects.

Reliability and accuracy is more important than affordability – choose your examiner wisely, re-evaluate your trust in their service regularly.

If you suspect that Inaccurate Results – False Positives are being reported because the above ratios no longer apply for you, download our Questionnaire here, to be completed by your employees who have been subjected to a Lie Detecting test, if all the answers aren’t YES, you may have ground to demand a Re-Test. Inform your current examiner and then use another examiner.

Also, look out for my next blog post on Re-Tests.

Best price for your Lie Detecting Test

In tough economic times like these, we all need to be wizards at cost-cutting. Bringing down existing expenditure and getting the best price can be done by calling the Provider and insisting on a discount or any other cost-cutting measure you can think of.

It helps to speak up.

For future expenditure, getting the best price for your Lie Detecting Test, is no exception.

Contact us for the best price for your Lie Detecting needs!

Here are some ‘Secrets’ I’ve put together to help you negotiate your way to getting the Best Price for Lie Detecting without compromising on Reliability and Accuracy.

Secrets to getting the best price for your Lie Detecting Test

  • First Secret – Don’t believe everything you read on the internet. Relying on advertised figures can be a costly mistake. If you do see a competitive price, mention it to the competition. But also remember that you get what you pay for.
  • Second Secret – Ask what discount is available especially related to your specific need. If you are needing many tests done, to gauge general deviant behavior, to get the best price request a quantity discount.
  • Third Secret – Go straight to the top. Ask to speak to the business owner/senior examiner, as they have more authority to negotiate.
  • Fourth Secret – Pursue package deals. For your big projects of Periodic Screenings or Pre-employments, try to get the extras thrown in, such as a Call-out-Fee, Report Fee, Day Fee etc.
  • Fifth Secret – Be flexible. Small changes can make a big difference in price and time. It’s smart to consider one methodology over another so choosing between Polygraph or Voice Stress, depending on your requirements is a good idea for saving time and money. Also, the technique used for the tests may be priced differently, ask to make sure you get the best price.
  • Sixth Secret – Be willing to switch service providers. In the Truth Verification Industry client/examiner loyalty is becoming a thing of the past. Just because you have been making use of X’s Services for 5 years, doesn’t mean that Y won’t provide you with better service.
  • Seventh Secret – Push yourself beyond your (city) limits. You may possibly get a better price per test while the Call-out-Fee may be more expensive per kilometre, but the saving on the test price (if you have large group to be tested) may just come in lower overall.
  • Eighth Secret – Get on the hot list. Join the mailing lists of your favorite Lie Detecting Company (if they have one like us). Not only will you receive informative blog posts like this, you’ll receive advance notice of discounted rates.
  • Ninths Secret – Search cyberspace for Lie Detecting discounts. Any Company worth their salt will use Google Ads to offer discount.
  • Tenth Secret – Buy in bulk. Group all your annual tests together if possible, or at least bi-annually. This way you can ask for bulk testing discount.
  • Eleventh Secret – Try some teamwork. When you have some tests that need to be done, invite your neighbouring businesses to join in and ask for bulk discount this way.
  • Twelfth Secret – Get estimates in writing. And, compare your quoted figures with final invoiced figures.
  • Thirteenth Secret – Hunt for hidden charges. Some Lie Detecting Companies may quote very low on the per-test price but do not mention other fees until it is too late and they appear on your invoice.
  • Fourteenth Secret – Offer same-day payment for further discount. Usually payment is requested immediately, yet clients only settle towards the end of the following month. You may be handsomely rewarded for offering immediate settlement once the project is complete. Make sure you keep to this settlement agreement, should you not you may be hit with a revised, increased invoice.
  • Fifteenth Secret – When you get a bill, don’t focus only on the bottom line. Scan every item for erroneous charges.
  • Sixteenth Secret – Save on the Call-out-Fee. Go to examiner or hire/borrow a venue close to the Lie Detecting Companies’ office. On bulk testing, ask that the COF be included in the test fee.
  • Seventeenth Secret – Ask if a Sliding Scale of fees is available – the more you do, the cheaper each test becomes.
  • Eighteenth Secret – Sign a Retainer Agreement with guaranteed test figures/prices that are applicable for an agreed period of time. As this is the preferred type of client, your Service Provider will do everything they can to give you the best price.

Stop Dishing up that Can of Bullshit

If I tell a painful but necessary truth, I take the risk of not being liked, being resented, or worse, rejected. And, most of the time we distort the truth in order to manipulate, and through manipulation we control. Therefore we lie. In other words, dishing up the proverbial can of Bullshit.

Telling the Truth is hard, and we give up control of other people, yet there is incredible power in the truth and is necessary for a fulfilling life.

As easy as Lying is, I say Stop Dishing up that Can of Bullshit!

Let me share with you why you should cease with the Bullshit already!

  • First of all truth allows for change and growth – No change is possible without knowing the truth; I cannot change something in myself if I’m not aware that it is there and needs to be changed.
  • Telling the Truth brings you peace of mind – It speaks of integrity, exposes your deeper values and hence you are a good friend, partner, parent or colleague.
  • Further more telling the Truth is a sign of love – Really caring for friends and family we must be willing to tell them what they don’t want to hear.
  • Truth earns respect – When you consistently tell the truth others will seek you out when needing feedback and listen.
  • Truth creates deeper connections – Telling the truth makes us vulnerable, this will encourage your friends and family to be open their hearts too.

Bullshit free Zone

In Conclusion

Bullshit has a definite fragrance that people can smell when it comes their way.

Truth is power, with it we live in integrity and when we deliver it with love, people won’t get defensive and your consideration will be appreciated.

What I gained In Search of My Truth

I’m old enough to say “Looking back over my life…” and not regret a single day. Yes, there have been many days, months, even years that I could have lived and loved differently.  But, then I wouldn’t have the experience of life I do now. Searching for my Truth has been a very rewarding journey!

What I gained In Search of My Truth:

FREEDOM

  • I am free from doubting myself automatically
  • I am free from self-sabotage
  • I am free from being a victim of circumstance
  • I am free from blaming others
  • I am free from worry

The list is endless!

KNOWING

  • I know that my imagination is my most powerful ally or enemy. How I choose to implement it, is up to me
  • I know that my outer life is always a reflection of my inner life. Everything I experience as happening to me externally, I have already committed to myself internally
  • I have the power to change my outer experience in the instant that I change my inner experience
  • I am the Creator of My Life. I build my experiences by my attitude and EVERYTHING/EVERYONE holds an opportunity for growth and love. Yes, even those traumatic, life threatening ones!
  • I know that what I can’t take with me when I ‘die’, is not worthy of concern. My pursuit of earthly things is not to accumulate but to experience my own creative power which is only half of what I will take with me
  • I know that the experience of learning how to love and be loved, is the other half

Of course, this Freedom & Knowing wasn’t gained easily. They came hand-in-hand with Responsibility.  I have had to take full responsibility for my whole life. The good and bad. Recognizing that the positions, places & circumstances I find myself in are completely, wholly as a result of my very own decisions.

This is a painful and necessary maturing process.

What I gained and lost in search of my truth

What I Lost in Search of My Truth

  • I no longer subscribe to the illusion that when/if my actions and words hurt others, I am a bad person
  • I do not make it nice for everyone, especially for my children, family and loved ones – how they choose to experience their lives, is their choice, just as it is mine
  • I do not need to be approved by others. My own approval through careful consideration is all that is required. And, if this careful consideration results in having to acknowledge that I indeed do not approve, then having the courage to change until I do
  • I no longer fear (emotional- that is, I am still working on losing physical fear :)) I do not fear hurt or not being loved. This is all part of life and the experience therefor depends again on my attitude
  • I do not support scarcity; I am the Creator of My Life and therefore I experience abundance in every form

The search of My Truth finally brought me to the edge of peace, yet with the excitement that life is still to be lived, loved and enjoyed in every moment!

Are you on a similar journey, have you also gained some wisdom on the way? I certainly hope that you have – why not let me know……?

Get Over That Lie

Have you been deceived in one way or another and struggling to Get Over That Lie?

It is devastating when we have been deceived by a spouse, partner, family member, business partner or employee; we’ve put our trust into this person and feel betrayed and hurt. Even worse, we feel responsible.

Honesty-Humility

“Researchers have studied this tendency and labelled it Honesty-Humility,” says Notre Dame Professor Anita Kelly, Ph.D., in a Psychology Today blog post. “Individuals high on this trait are sincere, modest, fair-minded, and non-greedy. They do not exploit others, even when there would be no retaliation for doing so. Individuals at the low end of this trait, on the other hand, are dishonest, haughty, and arrogant. They lack empathy and exploit others.”

The more decent we are, the easier it is for manipulators to deceive. “There is recent evidence that honest people tend to see others, particularly close others, as more honest than they actually are,” Kelly writes. We give liars the benefit of the doubt by believing that others are like us. The opposite also true; Liars believe others to be as dishonest as they are, “and thus see even honest partners as deserving to be exploited.”

This combination is lethal, and in addition dishonest people spent a lot of time learning how to be trustworthy.

In conclusion, the chances of an honest person being taken for a ride, taken advantage of and lied to are very high. When this happens, how to move on?

How to Get Over That Lie?

  • Relax

When you’ve been taken advantage of by a talented liar or master manipulator, it just means you’re honest.

  • Forgive yourself for being fooled.

The responsibility for the harm done is not yours.

  • Don’t give a known liar the benefit of the doubt.

A consistent liar may not become truthful just because their deception has been exposed, not even when they have confessed voluntarily.

Be a step ahead of the game, learn the facial expressions, phrases and behaviours that usually signal a lie.

(Not yet subscribed? Get our FREE eBook here – 16 Tips To Knowing If You Are Being Lied To)

  • Check things out.

Ask for corroboration of a statement such as references, bank account statements, the chance to do an on-site inspection, or other independent verification. Further, if someone invites you to check out their references, past history, or anything else, always take them up on it, and REALLY do it!

  • Trust is earned.

Trust should not be automatic, let your trust be earned by action as opposed to word only.

http://vsapoly.co.za/over-lie/

If you’ve been challenged by lies and deceit, don’t allow yourself to wallow in the negativity.  Breathe. Take stock. Learn from the experience and move on.

Fallen Heroes become Truth Heroes

Heroes are people who teach and inspire us. My heroes are those who have faced the darkness of their past, and survived.  In my view Fallen Heroes become Truth Heroes, when they take responsibility for their actions.

Should Heroes be exempt?

Even the most high-profile of household names can have dark pasts, heroes definitely aren’t perfect, yet they carry a tremendous amount of influence.  But when every word is recorded and every mishap is news, heroes are under even more pressure to behave perfectly. Our Heroes are human beings who transcend above the rest of us, but like the billions of other humans on this Earth, they are just as equally flawed. So, should our heroes be exempt from criticism, should they be allowed a free pass? Some would argue yes. Given the strain of living under a microscope, it’s natural for them to be human and slip.

I put forward that our Heroes are not like us. Of course they are human like the rest of us but they are greatly influential too, often shaping the culture we live in.   While that is admittedly a lot of pressure to carry, it should most definitely come with responsibility.

Examples from History

As evident from history, hero worship can easily go from brushing aside simple misunderstandings to blindly ignoring actual crimes;

  • First of all Woody Allen sexually assaulted his daughter and is still revered in Hollywood.
  • Also Sean Penn assaulted Madonna to the point of near death yet presented an Oscar last year.
  • Another is Chris Brown who beat Rihanna publicly and is on a national tour.
  • In addition, Eminem built his entire career on violent misogyny and has won 28 awards as a result.
  • Finally, Bill Cosby raped an entire slew of women and his comedy tour sold out.

These are blatant acts of terror that we collectively ignored in the name of hero worship.

Be accountable

If heroes are indeed human beings, then they deserve to be treated like one, including being held accountable for their actions.

Like the rest of us, they need to understand their actions so in turn, they can help others promote better values and behaviour.  They should not be in conflict with their obligations as a good human, and we are definitely not exempt from calling out lies as we see it.

So beyond the fanfare, after the scandal, when the truth is finally out, admitted and confessed, Fallen Heroes become Truth Heroes.

Fallen Heroes become Truth Heroes
Hansie Cronje
Fallen Heroes become Truth Heroes
Joost Van Der Westhuizen
Fallen Heroes become Truth Heroes
Lance Armstrong

Heroes like Hansie, Joost & Lance, who eventually told the truth and in my opinion redeemed themselves, thus remain my Heroes.

HR Warning!

Consider lie detecting to confront misconduct but be sure of all the facts before you commit to the process and heed this HR Warning!

HR Warning! Collect information

HR Warning! 1; Collect as much information about the incident as possible because this guides you to who to include in the investigation. Testing any employees unnecessarily may lead to a breakdown in trust and therefore communication in the workplace.

HR Warning! Follow the process

HR Warning! 2; Follow a process of inviting all identified employees to interviews aimed at establishing the facts. If any employee refuses to attend, charge them with the lesser offence of ‘failing or refusing to obey a lawful and reasonable instruction’. Or, possibly even with ‘failing or refusing to cooperate in a workplace investigation’.

HR warning

HR Warning! Beware

  • A lie detecting test is not a requirement, rather consent is given in writing.
  • No discrimination and threats may be made.
  • Only questions previously discussed and understood will be used.
  • In addition, they may request an interpreter or any person to attend the examination. This person may not interfere with the process.
  • It is note worthy that a negative result indicates deception rather than being guilty of the crime.
  • Results of Voice Stress Analysis or Polygraph is used as secondary evidence only.
  • Other primary evidence is required.
  • Especially relevant make sure your disciplinary procedures are correct and therefore complete.
  • In conclusion confirm with your examiner that they are willing and able to give expert evidence of the tests’ reliability and accuracy to conclude your case at the CCMA.

What has been your experience, do you have any other HR warning to share?

McBride challenges Mokotedi to a Lie Detector Test

What I experienced when Robert McBride challenged Prince Mokotedi to a lie detector test.

December 2016 offered the opportunity to be involved in the well-known McBride Lie Detector Challenge with Mokotedi.

Gauteng Hawks head Prince Mokotedi leveled allegations of treason, conspiracy to murder and espionage against a group who allegedly plotted to cause the downfall of the president. McBride among others, was named in an affidavit containing these allegations that was used to open a docket on Monday 2016-12-12.

He responded by challenging Mokotedi to a Lie Detector Test who accepted initially but subsequently refused.

McBride submitted himself for a Lie Detector Test.

The mandate from our client was to determine whether any of the allegations made against McBride as described in Mokotedi’s affidavit, were true. The copy of the affidavit received had no Commissioner of Oath signature, nor the signature of Mokotedi. It was confirmed to be the affidavit used by Mokotedi to inform those concerned of the docket that was opened, and was the only copy available.

This presented the necessity to first authenticate the affidavit.

At our request McBride signed a statement confirming the affidavit in our possession to be a true and unaltered copy of Mokotedi’s affidavit. The veracity of McBride’s statement was then determined by our examiner Dolph Visagie. This initial Polygraph examination indicated a result of No Deception:  The examinee was truthful when answering the Relevant Questions of;

  1. (NO) “Did you lie in this statement?”
  2. (NO) “Is this statement a lie?”

Only then we were able to turn our attention to our mandate.

A second Polygraph was conducted with McBride indicating No Deception:  The examinee was truthful when answering the Relevant Questions of;

  1. (NO) “Are any of the allegation in that affidavit true?”
  2. (NO) “Are you in anyway involved in any of the allegations in that affidavit?”
  3. (NO) “Do you know for sure who is involved in any of the allegations in that affidavit?”

So, what did I experience as a professional from this McBride Lie Detector Test?

  • No Polygraph can be public. We insisted on the examination taking place in private and at a neutral venue. We rented the testing facility at the Omega Training Academy; a big thank you to our hosts Wessel Kritzinger and Roy Rawlins.
  • An examinee is an examinee. McBride was subjected to the Polygraphs strictly following protocol, there was no preferential treatment.
  • The client is the only recipient of the results. Despite pressure from the media, results remain confidential and are reported to the client only. This blog post was published with permission.

 And, on the lighter side I experienced that:

  • There is no such thing as time off in the Lie Detecting Industry
  • Reporters wear very casual clothes but have a stylish jacket on hand
  • Notorious/Famous Celebrities can fluster ordinary folks
  • Notorious/Famous Celebrities are just people too

Live a life of Honesty

All around us Life is pulsating with inspiration to live a life of Honesty and Truth. It is courageous to live such a life. A Life in the present moment, the here-and-now, rather than distracted by our fears and doubts.

As soon as we succumb to our fears and doubts, Lies easily substitute the Truth – we tell ourselves the first Lie, that the Truth will hurt more. From experience I can tell you that THE TRUTH HURTS LESS – especially in relationships.

I find much Inspiration to live a life of Honesty in music, recently I came across this band:

Harem Scarem:

They are a Canadian hard rock band from TorontoOntario. Harem Scarem achieved popularity in Japan and their native Canada in the early 1990s. The band was active from 1987 to 2008 and again from 2013 after reforming. Throughout their career, they released 13 studio albums, plus numerous live and compilation albums.

Live Life of Honesty

In particular their Song Honestly, had much meaning for me during and after my divorce. In my opinion the meaning of the song is simply about our desire to mend a broken heart, and subsequently having the courage to ask for a second chance.

Here are the Lyrics:

“I stand before you, accused of many crimes
But I want to believe that love can still survive
You don’t have to say it, I don’t have to read your mind
To know the emptiness that’s finally arrived
How was I, to know the right from wrong
Words were hardly spoken, so where did I go wrong?
Tell me honestly, if you’re still loving me
Looking into my eyes, honestly
Words have more meaning, if they’re said at certain times
I need you now so I can feel alive
How would you know it, you wont give me sometime
To see if everything could work out, and you’d be mine
Oh, will love be lost forever or someday I may find
The words that I’ve been searching for
Are just some peace of mind…
Tell me honestly, if you’re still loving me
Looking into my eyes, honestly…
All the night I sit and wonder
Must be more to laugh, I’m sure that
Days and years gone by while I am
Living with the…
Oh, lonely feeling”

What meaning does it have for you?
