Painters like painting, the saying goes, writers like having written.

Are there exceptions to both sides of this rule? Of course. But anyone who has run the gauntlet and written a full-length book can tell you, it’s a grueling process.

You wake up for weeks, months or years on end, and at the end of each working day you are essentially no closer to finishing than you were when you started.

The Hypocrite’s Paradigm is the same as how one looks into a kaleidoscope where different views, perspectives and reflections shall be revealed. One example, reality may be one word but it has several sides. Life might be simple at first glance but it is the most challenging and slightly complicated among the rest.

What is your paradigm? Will you also say that you are a hypocrite at some times?

One pretends. One lies. One sacrifices. However, at the end of all your contradictions, you will also become honest.

That is how you see the world.

That is how you feel the Earth.

That is how you accept people.

That is how you face life.

So, tell me. What your “hypocrite’s paradigm” is?
