Everyone has done something that they are forced to deny. Those that seek spirit must eventually set aside such tactics but what is inherent within the human need to deny?
When we are forced to realize that we did something that has harmed another, we feel like a bad people. Denial says, "I am not a bad person." That is a great truth. The action itself is a false portrayal of who the person really is; The action is a lie. A person's goodness is the truth.
Once again, the truth is revealed with the lie.
This applies to you.
It really is that simple.
