Re·al·ize The Truth About Lies – George Gurdjieff:

Do you know the truth about lies?

Most people think that white lies are harmless, but they’re actually one of the biggest problems in the world, according to George Gurdjieff. Watch this video to learn more about the truth about lies and begin your journey toward truth if you dare.

“A man must first of all understand certain things. He has thousands of false ideas and false conceptions, chiefly about himself, and he must get rid of some of them before beginning to acquire anything new. Otherwise the new will be built on a wrong foundation and the result will be worse than before. To speak the truth is the most difficult thing in the world; one must study a great deal and for a long time in order to speak the truth. The wish alone is not enough. To speak the truth one must know what the truth is and what a lie is, and first of all in oneself. And this nobody wants to know.” – George Gurdjieff

Do you know the lies you believe as truths?

George Gurdjieff was a spiritual teacher who was known for his teachings about lies. He believed that there were three types of lies: white lies, black lies, and gray lies. White lies are harmless lies that we tell to make other people feel better. Black lies are harmful lies that we tell to hurt other people. Gray lies are somewhere in between – they’re not necessarily harmful, but they’re not helpful either.

Gurdjieff believed that white lies were the most dangerous type of lie because they create a false sense of security. We tell white lies to make ourselves feel better, but in reality, we’re just hiding our true feelings. Black lies are also harmful, but they’re less dangerous than white lies because they’re usually told with the intention of causing harm. Gray lies are the least harmful type of lie, but they’re still not helpful.
