Next time you look in the mirror, look at your eyebrows. Try to imagine where they will meet at the centre, because that is the point that could change the perception of the entire world in front of your eyes. Next time you wake up in the morning, stare right into the eyes of the sun and if you feel that the brightness is just right for you then close your eyes and visualize the enlightenment right at the point where your eyebrows would meet.

 

If you are still wondering what I m trying to say, I am just asking you to meditate. If you do this long enough, you might just find the answer to eternal truth, but sooner than that you could end up with a headache.

 

But , what is truth? Whatever is not disturbed by troubles, hindrances, obstructions and impediments is truth. Whatever remains constant in present, past and future is truth. Whatever has real existence is truth. Truth is beyond time, space and cause. Truth cannot be hidden. It cannot be changed. The universe has come into existence only by truth, sustains by truth and eventually dissolves in truth. Truth and God are not different.

 

But we believe that there are only two truths in this world. one is of the Lord Almighty and the second of death. As for God, you have never seen him and for death you cannot say what happens after that. God symbolizes life. So what do life and death have in common? They both are immune to each other. They know that they exist but they have never met.

 

Absolute truth is permanent and everlasting. It never changes. Even if all other things disappear, this truth remains forever. Christianity justifies that even devil was an angel and not just any angel, the best one. We consider death a devil. So God and death are similar. Thus there is one and only one absolute truth and that is God.

 

Man cannot say when he does good acts and when bad acts. Further there is no unity in thought, speech and actions. Man may think something, tell something else and act contrary to them. The truth in this world is limited to man’s speech that is based on what he sees and does. For example in court of law where justice is sought to be done, truth is a victim. An accused is asked to speak the truth and nothing but the truth. The truth sought for him is conditioned by acts done at a point of time and place. The acts are justified by evidences and circumstances. This justice is not entirely based on truth.

 

Thus the truth in this world is relative and not absolute. Absolute truth does exist but not in the world. God is the absolute truth. And God’s absolute truth is a ring. Undoubtedly, the only present substance that loses none of its potency.

 

Thus the following lines only can describe absolute truth. :

 

“ a ring to rule them, a ring to find them, a ring to bring them and in the enlightenment, bind them.”
