You could look at 'everything' as a manipulation because everything is just that. Everyone has biases therefore what comes out of them is innately a
manipulation. Words themselves are created to be carriers of manipulation in one way or another. We use words in written or spoken form to express our
biases right or wrong.
Allow me to ask you a question. Tell me what is not a manipulation when using language in written or spoken form? Unless we are telepathically
communicating, I am afraid all humans are subject to using language to manipulate everything and everyone around them.
So what is truth in the use of language stemming from personal motivations? It comes in the form of intimate spiritual conviction. Something that
cannot be expressed using words typically. Humans are innately manipulative pursueing their own self interests whether it is true or false. Often
times, one will believe anything they want to if it serves their own motives and they will do what they need to in order to convince those around
The entire world and how it operates is a testimony to this fact. The media, politics, education and the list goes on and on.....Truth is subjective
with a personal agenda attached to it. Unless that is, one is willing to relinquish the self and the ego for G-d to perform the greatest work in us.
For this to happen we must remove 'oursleves' from the equation.
Man is otherwise not capable of truth inside himself. We are corrupted as a result of our ego's and selfish motivations sculpted from the many biases
and hurts of life and all it's injustices that make us into what we are in those faults. This results in a highly manipulative and utterly subjective
type of reasoning that serves to alter those around us for our own purposes. What ever those reasons may be.
We rarely see things clearly because if we did it would mean a great deal of sacrifice on a daily basis. So we respond in a manner that would serve us
best instead. The only time we can be free of manipulating or being manipulated is through self sacrfice. Having relinquished ourselves, fears, hurts
and biases we can be empty vessels to be filled by that which is greater than ourselves.
Your no more or less guilty than the rest of us. The only difference I see is that you have a deeper understanding as a result of research and
education into the art of manpulation. Just as is the case with more knowledge comes more responsibility as to how you use it. Use it wisely and with
care so as not to hurt those around you. Live cleanly.
