Also consider more importantly what is the need to lie coming from? If it is taking inappropriate responsibility for another, not taking appropriate responsibility for self, oh the list is endless really. What is behind the need to lie is far more powerful than the lie itself. Unfortunately we as a species are one of the few species on the planet that can take indirect information and experience (another's truth whether flawed or accurate for that other person) as our own truth or as THE TRUTH. We don't need to directly expereince something to form pretty powerful beliefs/perceptions/opinions about it. This is a blessing and a bane to the human existance and also part of the foundation of free will.
Yes I just said Free Will. It is that fact that we can choose to believe or not without or with direct experience that allows us to reprogram ourselves. Freedom to decide in the present away from the habitual response based on past experiences is true choice. And choice of action based on the present information is an expression of spirit instead of staying to instinctual programming that may be coming from genes or nuturance from 0-6 years of age or any source for that matter.
