The Perpetual Diplomat: The Truth of What We Trade

It’s a free country, are you? Are you truly acting as a sovereign being? Or do you negotiate your boundaries, soften your terms, and guard your ‘nation’s’ secrets with your life? Keeping the peace, are we? But what about your peace, and your piece of life?

Yes, the cost is high for the perpetual diplomat. She may avoid the foreign invasion but her own soils are wrought with an ongoing conflict that produces more than a momentary unrest; it erodes her power to govern her world. 

Each time she allows her boundaries to be crossed, she narrows her territory— she gets energetically smaller. Every term softened—the words bent in supplication—stalemates her into a self-induced embargo. And the guarded secrets are perhaps the most detrimental of all, for what she will do to keep them hidden—lie, lie, and lie some more.

No one likes to be called a liar, let alone to recognize the little lies we tell ourselves. But lying comes in many forms—from omitting information and pretending perfection to the outright falsities—and most have a diplomat that we throw out in front of our truth… to “choose our battles wisely” by not choosing at all.

You may dismiss her presence as benign or even kind, but this diplomat is indeed a false representative and whatever the degree of lie, its fire burns right through our seat of power. For, if we’re not honest with ourselves, where is our starting point of creation AND if we’re not willing to give voice to our truth, where is its power?

It’s time for a final trade... of the lies for your life! ...and of the diplomat for the advocate— one who deals not in trades but in truths.
