"He who winks his eyes does so to devise perverse things;
He who compresses his lips brings evil to pass."
(Proverbs 16:30)

The discipline of Body Language says that when a person compresses their lips they are holding back information and truth.

When we hold back truth it allows events to flow in directions towards which they were never intended to flow.

Do those who compress the lips and hold back truth, hold back truth that will allow events to move in a direction where they will benefit others more than themselves? Or do those who compress the lips withhold information to give them the advantage over others? Surely the later is true.

And herein lies the issue.

When we compress the lip and withhold information what we are really doing is we are trying to get what we want outside the truth. We are saying that the full information, the truth of life that God created, will not give us what we want so we will attempt to manipulate the situation to get it.

But in so doing we have said the truth of life is less than what we desire. And since God created this life, and the truth of this life, any time we attempt to get what we want outside this truth of life, we make ourselves equal to God.

And this is the evil that is brought to pass.
