Honesty and Depth – Truth and Nothingness

When you suddenly think you or the world might be completely full of shit – or meaningless – or dangerous – or complicit, honesty comes to the rescue – and you understand  more of what honesty really is – how deep it goes.

When you think you’ve wrapped your head around it – and let the world farther in – and you go out farther into the world, if you go far enough, everything will begin looking like  bullshit again; through honesty you’ll see deeper

Once you escape the scariest possibility –  that reality is either bullshit or sinister; the relief is overwhelming. You’ve awoken from a dream just before the crashing plane you’re on hits the ground;  The immensity of truth further unveiled.

Whenever reality stops being what it seemed and you fear you might be a fool, or the world could be nothing, that’s the misunderstood parts unraveling. You’ll go deeper and deeper – until the world looks true again – patching the holes more honestly..

Honesty is both the willingness to see truth and the way to see it. As honesty grows – truth becomes more reliable and there’s less to unravel, more to believe.
