‘They muddy the water to make it seem deep.’ Friedrich Nietzsche
Life is always going to bring people to us that use chaos to create the illusion of depth. It does not take long to figure out they are dangerous folks to have around because their first line of defense is to create confusion in those around them.
An adept mud maker will very often begin their process with a flurry of words or actions that has a very exacting effect … to catch their intended victim off guard and to make them doubt their own footing.
Remember this the next time someone stomps around in the clean waters of your life…. Just be still and let time work her magic…. because when there is no depth, the mud settles quickly… and clarity emerges along with the truth.
