Stonepeace (846–855)

[846]

All suffering is needless,
due to greed,
hatred and delusion,
which are also needless.

[847]

When clear questions
are not clearly answered,
the questioned
are clearly questionable.

[848]

With double standards
for self-centred benefits,
they will karmically
double back to harm oneself.

[849]

Those adapt at
openly playing victim
are often also adapt at
insidiously playing victimisers.

[850]

Beware of those who play with words,
as they are those who play with your mind
and its perception of the truth.

[851]

The more old lies
are defended with new lies,
the wider the web of deceit spun
that more fully traps.

[852]

More treacherous than lies
which are clearly non-truths
are half-truths
and halves of half-truths.

[853]

Forget not
original questions asked,
or get not
original answers sought.

[854]

Deceptive ones obfuscate endlessly.
Truthful ones clarify directly.

[855]

Bigger problems arise
with claims of some problems being personal,
when they do reflect bigger problems for all.
