“All things are possible…”
When did we stop believing that? Do you remember the exact moment? Some do. Some people have that experience where their childhood understanding, the one that says they that they can do anything, comes crashing down around their heads and a harsher reality full of Can’t, Don’t, and No’s stifles their existence. For others it’s a gradual shift; full of subtle rejections and limitations that slowly choke the real life from their minds and bodies. So slowly it’s almost imperceptible and they don’t even register that belief is gone.
So what is the Great Deceit?
The Great Deceit is the lie that we “can’t”. We can’t have the job we want, we can’t have the family, and we can’t have the money, the body, the health. We can’t have our freedom, or the love of our lives, or our peace. We can’t have contentment, wealth, wisdom, and power. We can’t have it all, we can’t have the life we desire, and we can’t truly live. That is the Great Deceit and it’s truly vile and sinister, because we don’t really believe it’s a lie at all.
