From Lying to Authenticity

Original Title

Du mensonge à l'authenticité

How do we get back on track, once lying becomes a refuge?

At every stage of life, we're at risk of resorting to lies. While some are harmless, like the fantasies of a child's imagination, others, more serious, poison family, marital and professional life. We may lie to escape from intolerable truths, flee from crises or satisfy a need for domination. But while lying may be helpful in the short term, it often turns into slavery. Clouding our contact with emotional reality, it causes frustration, bitterness and anger. Hence the suffering we feel when we live a life of lies. And yet, as the author reminds us, behind every lie there's a distress call, a truth that must be heard. Fortunately, it's possible to heal this fundamental wound, but to do so we have to step bravely onto the pathway of truth. This is the only solution: committing to a lengthy period of introspection so as to free ourselves from this servitude and regain full power over our lives. This pathway leads right to our very heart, where each of us awakens to our own light, our own authenticity. This serious book does not suggest magical solutions, but blazes a path for us to the unscathed part of ourselves that exists in absolute truth. Without fear, without guilt or suffering, it's a matter of following the path that does not lie. A demanding but life-saving journey.
