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

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:


  • 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!


  • 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……?

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.

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?

Tell the Truth and Profit

Is it possible to Tell the Truth and Profit?

To Tell the Truth is an American television panel game show created by Bob Stewart and produced by Goodson-Todman Productions. It aired in various forms since 1956 both on networks and in syndication.  The show is one of two game shows in the United States to have aired at least one new episode in at least seven consecutive decades, as of June 14, 2016.

A total of 26 seasons of the various versions of To Tell the Truth have been produced including the 2016 version, and this subsequently surpasses the 25 of What’s My Line? and the 20 of I’ve Got a Secret.

A way to tell the Truth and Profit
To Tell the Truth Game Show set

A way To Tell the Truth and Profit? I say!!

The show features a panel of four celebrities whose object is the correct identification of a described contestant who has an unusual occupation or has undergone an unusual experience. This ‘central character’ is therefore accompanied by two impostors who pretend to be the central character; together, the three persons are said to belong to a ‘team of challengers’.

The celebrity panelists pose questions to the three contestants; the impostors are allowed to lie, but the central character is sworn “to tell the truth.”

After questioning, the panel attempts to identify which of the three challengers is telling the truth and is thus the central character.

I first came across this game show while watching a Leonardo Di Caprio movie – Catch Me if you Can

Tell the Truth and Profit
Tell the Truth Frank Abagnale Jr

This was a movie depicting the life story of Frank William Abagnale Jr.  I was impressed by this young man’s ability to be whoever he wanted to be, albeit fraudulently, without being caught.  Of course he was caught in the end, and, because he was so good at fraud, he was hired to catch others!

 Has Telling the Truth brought you Profit?

This is not a recommended course of action as getting caught bribing is easier than getting caught cheating a polygraph.

“Can harming myself, such as pinching or biting my tongue, affect the test?”

Similar results are caused by pain and lying so, Yes. A thumbtack in your shoe is an option.

“Can I pass a lie detecting test by telling the truth?”

Passing a polygraph test by telling the truth, is the preferred way! Those who don’t want to tell the truth are the ones who cheat.


“How long does it take to get the results of the test?”

The length of the test determines the process for getting results.


“Can I be found guilty if I am innocent?”

Many biological responses of stress and lying are associated, so yes, even if you were telling the truth, deception could be indicated during a Voice Stress test or polygraph.

“Can I be found guilty even when innocent?”

“Would Benadryl help during a lie detecting session?”

No, it may make you feel better as it is an allergy pill, but not beat the test.

 TIPS to pass Voice Stress Analysis & the Polygraph

  • While answering an accusing question think of something that calms you down, or something you know that you never did. See it in your mind while answering the question.
  • The examiner could throw a curve ball as there are several subtle variations of the lie detecting test. If you really want to pass the test be sure to research these thoroughly.
  • Refusing to undergo a Voice Stress test or Polygraph is the easiest way, but there will be consequences, make sure you know what these are. For pre-employment screenings, this will almost certainly insure that you don’t get hired. However, it’s still a viable option, especially if you are opposed to the usage of such tests in general.


  • Perform only one countermeasure at a time or it may become too obvious.
  • Biting your tongue is highly effective, but may be detectable if you move your mouth observably.
  • Examiners of this Company have all be trained to recognize deception and countermeasures – Be aware that you might not be able to beat the lie detector even using these methods.
  • If you are accused of deception or using countermeasures, you will likely be eliminated from the job pool.

Understanding How Lie Detecting Works

Our minds being as creative as they are, can conjure up some really amazing stories; In regard to Truth Verification this is very helpful indeed! What Detection of Deception relies on however is the relationship between MIND & BODY.

Huh? How does this Work?

While the MIND can lie, the BODY cannot!

How does this Work?

Our minds being as creative as they are, can conjure up some really amazing stories. In regard to Truth Verification this is the Cornerstone!

What Detection of Deception relies on is the relationship between MIND & BODY.

Through the Autonomous Nervous System the BODY is able to respond to mental images of the MIND – then the BODY responds with feelings.

Feelings are the subtle, visceral sensations passing through the physiology and biology triggered by hormonal/chemical release from the Neurology.

This originally was action-ed by the thoughts passing through the mind.

How again?

The Autonomous Nervous System’s (ANS) job is to either activate or relax the body. When mind and body is congruent the BODY is relaxed.

However, when the mind lies the ANS will activate the body. This system is so sensitive that even the slightest non-truth passing through our imagination, has the result of many subtle sensations being experienced in the body.

So, does it Work?

A lie in thought and made real by words activates the body in such a way that these reactions to in-congruence, can be measured.

YES, it Works!!

Does it Work?

POLYGRAPH measures;

  • Cardiovascular
  • Electrodermal
  • Respiratory changes in the body.

VOICE STRESS ANALYSIS with AVSAPRO records change in the voice.

For both methodologies the data captured is used to offer a result.

  • No Deception Indicated (NDI)
  • Deception Indicated (DI)
  • Inconclusive

Remember, Neither result confirms the subject did, or did not commit the act – results only indicate a reaction to the questions asked; did their body, or did their body not, react when answering the relevant questions.
