The truth is a lie


The Truth is a Lie: The complete psychological and motivational journey to personal transformation through conscience thought, relationship analysis, and educational conditioning. By Harry Petsanis.


The Truth is a Lie will remove the blindfold that’s crippled you for far too long and integrate real-life situations to effectively demonstrate how these scenarios present themselves in all our lives. In The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy, the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow, and the Tin Man learn that the wizard behind the curtain is controlling all the myth and magic in Oz. The wizard does not want to be revealed. He wants to stay in control, and for the illusion of a perfect and harmonious world to continue. Follow my journey in The Truth is a Lie as I pull back the curtain and show that your Land of Oz is a place where your perception is not reality. Every day we live in conflict. We say that we want the curtain pulled back to reveal the truth, but our nature prefers to keep us in the dark, not allowing us to see who we truly are. In many instances, we simultaneously fear and despise the person we know is directly behind that lightly threaded fabric. We want nothing to do with the truth because the lie that we have been living for so long has become our reality. Imagine a wrecking ball destroying the infrastructure of all that we have been manipulated to believe. This Land of Oz was created by those in power: the government, educators, parents, and authority figures to control society and manipulate the minds of the less fortunate and powerless to create the illusion of a perfect world, and more importantly, protect the lives of those controlling us. Imagine a boxer, as soon as the bell rings, coming at you. He hits you with a haymaker to knock you off balance. As soon as we are born, our bell rings, and we are hit with the reality of the world that has already been created for us. The Land of Oz that has been created for you has your own wizard pulling the strings and brainwashing you to believe only what they want you to believe. People need to be shaken in a dramatic fashion to get them out of their conditioned apathy. We are so entrenched in the way we think that only a catastrophic event or soulfully truthful revelation can rewire the hardware. This conditioning has internally and emotionally tied us up in knots. We’re afraid to reveal ourselves to people, afraid to speak out or to act in a way that truly reflects how we think and feel, and we’re afraid to admit that at heart we are all self-serving and self-indulgent beings. Even Mother Teresa acknowledged that she felt guilty about how good it made her feel to help other people. This fear has been ingrained in us, causing us to lead the life that others demand of us, which was their intention from the beginning. Throughout our journey, my goal will be to get you to pull back the curtain in your Land of Oz and reveal your world as it really is, not as you and others have conditioned you to believe that it is.

My own review on Amazon

Accessible, encouraging, and empowering

I, like so many others, have gotten to know about Harry Petsanis from his courteous engagement with all on Twitter. He has also been sharing quotes and encouragement from and about this book, The Truth is a Lie. Reading the book (on Kindle), however, offers a better insight into the man behind the motivation. This, I feel, is very important. Harry’s sincerity has come through, but also his practical view of maintaining a certain stoicism in relationships. Given our present time, his views offer the kind of safety many of the modern-day readers require.

Just to share a couple of excerpts that can be called accessible, encouraging, and empowering, here are just a couple of good examples:

1) “We don’t love someone or feel great affection for them based on who they are, we love someone and feel great affection for them based on who we are. It isn’t that someone is exciting, it’s that we feel excited. They’re not interesting, we find them interesting. We don’t see them as attractive, they’re attractive to us. The feelings that we have aren’t about someone else, they’re about us.”

2) “Lesson learned: When you understand someone’s motive and their intent, you immediately understand the position they’ve taken and, more importantly, the position they’re trying to put you in. Never rush when ascertaining someone’s motive.”

Do read this book. I am quite sure, you would find it easy to read and benefit from!
