Is Not Lying And Holding Back The Truth The Same Thing

Is Not Lying And Holding Back The Truth The Same Thing?

Lying is a distortion of information. Honesty is not lying, and holding back the information is not a factor of dishonor. It is better to measure twice and cut once.

“Please tell us about the quality and habit of not lying. Does it include holding back a part of information if you think that you shouldn’t say it to a particular person in a specific situation?”

Honesty doesn’t mean to speak up the truth no matter what; honesty is not to lie when you need to give specific information. Holding back the information is not a factor of dishonor, just the opposite. There is a reason why Russian folk say, “measure twice and cut once.”

Because sometimes a spoken truth can be evil. In what case can it be evil? If no one asked for it. 

Our ancestors formulated the rule: the one who wishes to know the truth must ask three times, must do that himself, and must do that voluntarily. It is forbidden to force information upon someone unless asked; it is forbidden to give information if you understand that the person who’s asking you for this information isn’t really expecting it and doesn’t want it.

A lie is a distortion of information. Accordingly, this distorted information, perceived as truth, becomes reality. It changes the course of time; it changes the course of history. The gods do not like it very much and, as a rule, always return both the flow of time and the course of history back to the direction they should follow. And whoever allowed himself to lie will pay for this action with his energy and time because the process of leveling the informational currents is highly energy-intensive. 

Where can we get this energy from? Either from the liar or from his voluntary victim, that is, someone who believed him and began to act according to this information, believed him to such an extent to admit that it’s true. People were deceived, and some can ask, “but what is their fault, they were lied to?” But is this really so?

How far can a person swear to have done everything possible to verify this information? How honest is he when saying that he had a reason to trust it?  Maybe he is a liar, too, for continuing self-deception.

Ethically, it is a very difficult question. How can you accuse an innocent of being a liar if the only thing he did was believing a liar? The ancient philosopher-sages used to say, “yes, they are equally responsible because both the liar and the one who believed him were given the same right to free will, for the one – whether to lie, and for another – to verify the information.”
