Ponder for a moment, the difference between the bitter truth and a sweet lie?

Both can be subtle, firm or even organic in the nature of their origins. Both can cut like a knife or spread like wildfire. One can be as sweet as honey, the other; bitter as a clove of garlic crushed between the teeth. Either the sting of aged vinegar or the seductive aroma of a ripened lemon, one day will add to the taste of life.

In this, choose wisely. Know to some, the difference is likened to a pot of boiling water, only to simmer in the essence of its own understanding. Like cayenne pepper to the innocent of tongue or the dryness of ground cinnamon, blown in the eyes of the traveler; all within a blink will drink from the cup of eternal law.

Either way, the difference between truth and lie will ultimately reflect upon the path we take. The blessed thing about this analogy is, you don’t have to take my word on it. Just sit back, relax and sip on some healing tea. Take some time off and ponder this eternal difference for yourself. By the way, the ingredients are within the analogy above; just add to taste.
