“A verdade é muito simples. A complexidade existe porque tentamos fugir da verdade. A mentira é muito complexa. Ela é a mais sutil e menos óbvia matriz do eu inferior. Ela se manifesta como autoengano – o autoengano da falsa ideia de eu. O sofrimento está sentado em cima da mentira, enquanto a verdade é a base para a alegria.”

“La verdad es muy simple. La complejidad existe porque intentamos huir de la verdad. La mentira es muy compleja. Es la más sutil y menos obvia matriz del yo inferior. Se manifiesta como autoengaño - el auto-engaño de la falsa idea de yo. El sufrimiento está sentado arriba de la mentira, mientras que la verdad es la base de la alegría.”

"The truth is very simple. Things become complicated when we try to escape the truth. Lies are very complex. Deceit is the most subtle and least obvious matrix of the lower self. Lies manifest as self-deception, which is the false idea of the self. Suffering comes from lies, whereas the truth is the foundation for joy."

—Pema Chodron, "The In-between State"
