No truth, no empathy, no interest for genuine contact – empty souls in search of fulfillment

This quote is not mine, but it feels as if it was my experiences depicted.

“…Bad people come to us as sweetness and light, charming, intelligent, confident, and often successful.  But, they are chameleons who will say whatever is necessary in order to get what they want and do what they may.  No truth.  No empathy.  No soul.  Shape-shifting through life they reinvent themselves to suit their audience so as to be everything to everyone.

Inside, they are soulless.  Alone.  Scared.  Afraid of being found out and exposed as a fraud.  Their fragile self-image hides behind a facade of confidence, humor, and “I’m above it all.”  Hence, they appear arrogant, haughty, and cannot bear scorn or reproach.”

I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

    A most accurate description of a psychopath, except that while they certainly don’t want to be found out, they are fearless, not scared, and it’s doubtful that their self image is “fragile.” Find out more at!

      Reading through your posts has opened my eyes.

      It may seem like an overstatement, but if I give it a serious thought, today-society consists mostly of psychopats. This is pretty far-fetched to many, but this is my overall impression.

      This is a quite an allegation, but wherever you turn, you bump into them. People whose only interest and skill is to manipulate, demean and playing superior.

      I for one don´t know how to see through them, as they flawlessly play their abject role.

      Have you learned to see behind their guise, that is, once you meet a person of this type, can you instantly recognize this trait?

      I wish I could.
