The Essence of Truth
The Truth Contest is asking for essays on Truth. When contemplating this, I was guided to first identify what truth is. I was assuming they were asking about the deeper meaning of truth, and not the logical meaning of truth as being based on fact.
As with God and Love, one cannot accurately express the esoteric meaning of Truth. Truth can only be pointed to through personal experience and intuition. In addition to this, as is also the case with God and Love, sometimes the fewer the words, the clearer and less convoluted the experience.
Truth is understood in layers, at the level of the person in observation.
Truth is not an opinion, nor is it malleable.
It is a state being, ever-available, ever-accessible.
Truth is not boastful, nor is it up for debate, for truth cannot live within the ego.
Truth is neither good or bad.
It is neither complex or simple.
Truth simply IS, as part of the very fabric and essence of being.
What is the purpose and benefit on contemplating Truth? Of course the answer to this would depend on the individual. Reasons could range from feeding your need for security and purpose, to questioning whether you are on your highest path, to just having fun. For me, I am of the school that questions dynamic topics until I have a clear experience of answers. I can then add the experiences to broaden and deepen the foundation from which I live.
This blog, and all my writings, are explorations into the wondrous, deep, and ever-evolving process of living, loving and growing. My intention with Pebbles for Thought, is to empower and uplift, one post at a time.
