“The philosophy of positive thinking means being untruthful; it means being dishonest. It means seeing a certain thing and yet denying what you have seen; it means deceiving yourself and others.” —Osho, Zen Master
We’ve got the right to choose life over fear. Likewise, we’ve got the right to be unsuspecting due to someone else’s reckless behavior. More importantly, we’ve got the right to accept reality for what it is and to promote that reality so that others may be aware of any dangerous outcomes involved. We’ve got the right to be humans, not idealists, conformists, or robots just for the hell of it. We’ve got the right to be strong and to keep true to all the realities that afflict us. We’ve got the right to be human—a Godly right, cynical or not. Moreover, truthfulness may put us on a lonely road. However, there’s a silver lining in that we may have some inner peace too, whereas duplicity may put us on a crowded road filled with lots of anxiety and lots of uninvited noise.
