What is the only thing in the way of peace and happiness for all? What continually stops us from enjoying the abundance and joy which all of us deserve, and are our birthright?
It is the liar. And it is in each and every one of our minds. And as long as we are unaware of it, the violent world goes on, steadily approaching self-destruction.
Help Niramisa unmask the liar and so save the world. More
There is nothing to fear. Have you heard that said before? We may hear it in spiritual circles or read it in religious texts. It is a very comforting thought and somehow rings true deep within. But usually we must take it on faith if we are to believe it.
Why is the world as it is? Why have we not been able to eradicate suffering? Why does genocide continue unabated after countless horrific events obliging us, each time, to promise not to do it again? A promise never kept.
Why is the future always like the past? Why are my relationships full of pain, even after decades of self-help? Why is finding the 'God' particle more important than attempting to build a fearless world for the next generations to come?
These are the questions that all of us need answering and have not yet been adequately addressed.
The good news is that the answer is the same for all these questions, and millions more like them. There is a single cause behind all the pain and suffering of humankind. All we need do is understand what it is, stop believing its lies and watch it drift away into nothingness. Then, and only then, will we have a chance at being what we truly are.
There is nothing to fear. Nothing bad ever happened. Evil doesn't exist. The world is illusion. These statements happen to be true but up until now there has only been stark proof to the contrary. 'The Liar' examines these hopeful ideas and provides a clear and definitive argument as to why they must be true.
There really is nothing to fear, quite literally. We fear nothing because we fear lies alone. And lies are not true and therefore do not, and cannot, exist in reality.
QED. But don't take my word for it, read for yourself and make up your own mind.
AUTHOR’S NOTE ON THE SECOND EDITION – to be uploaded December 2014
I wrote the first edition of this book in a flurry of wild zeal. This zeal arose from my certainty that the Holy Spirit had instructed me to write the book and extended into a belief that every word I wrote would, therefore, be perfect.
Since then, I started writing fiction. Divinely ordained or not, I realised I had no idea how to write fiction. Non-fiction – I had assumed – was something I already understood, having written a PhD thesis at one time, cum laude. However, fiction remained mysterious and perplexing. I realised I needed some professional advice.
I took some free online courses and read some well-known books on the subject. As I read and learned, I realised, with horror, what a blustering egomaniac I had been during the writing of the first edition, never mind the fiction I was drafting at the time. Each writer’s failing point the professionals laid out forced me to wince and cringe. I knew I would have to edit The Liar again, and extensively.
My sincerest apologies go out to the few who bought the first edition, more apologies if they actually read it. I hope this new edition will eliminate the confused sentences, the weasel words, the guff, and the blarney. I hope, too, that something clear and readable will have taken their place.
