Bluff: (n) an attempt to deceive someone regarding abilities
“You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”
This is just one of those traditional sayings that we occasionally pop off to prove that we’re acquainted with noble thoughts.
But what does it mean? For instance, free from what? What does the truth make us free from? Or free to do?
There is only one cursed, defiled, nasty and unworkable human emotion: nervousness.
Although it comes in many forms and manifests itself in a multitude of situations, there truly is nothing worse than walking around uncertain, frightened, tentative or ill-prepared for circumstances.
Sometimes this is inevitable. But most of the time it is because we have bluffed–portraying ourselves as something we are not, and then are suddenly center-stage, tap-dancing out our claim.
This may be the definition of hell.
Yes–maybe hell is a place where all the things we said we could or would do are stacked up…until we actually achieve them.
