This might just change your way of looking at things

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.”

You have some very good points here. I have always considered reality subjective, as many do. But think upon it enough and the question arises, how are we defined. If everyone views us differently then what are we? In "truth", we are nothing. And to a greater extent than many know. In "truth" 99.999% of our being is made up entirely of empty space. How is it that so little matter can truly be called anything? But it was a great man that once said, I think, therefore, I am. Which brings me back to my original point, how are we defined, if every person defines us differently? If every person experiences the world through their own little sphere of perception, then would it simply be the interaction of our world and theirs that defines us? Or is it that "in truth" we are truly nothing at all? Or perhaps a third option, and my personal favorite, for it brings to light many quite thoughts. We are, "in truth" nothing more than memories. If we are not remembered, then how can it be said we ever were? And futhermore, if we are remembered, even after our "death", then is it not just as accurate to say that we still exist? I am, of course, now referring to immortality, but I digress. I guess what I'm trying to say is, I loved this, and the ending was very funny. =^.^=

I liked this, of course it is in me to read upon esoteric teachings, and higher thoughts/truths containing oneness. Although I have a need to comment upon the above statement that "I think, therefore I am" This man had it backwards, being stated correctly it would read "I am, therefore, I think" because the thought in man today is but a manifestation of the small egoic mind which is subject to change therefore is not truth.

Well, I have totaly enjoyed reading this and hope to read more in the future. Thankyou and best wishes, ~katie

I love this! Something I've always said is that the truth stands up under questioning. This is great stuff. You also may find "The Kabalion(spelling)" extremely interesting! It is fabulous reading and very thought provoking! Loved your thinking on this one.

I think that there is truth in this world. But on the "God" bit, I must say that some things are just interpretations.

I agree with you that there are no truths in this world. There are facts such as defined phenomena within time and space, but "truth" in the moral sense only exists as an idea or a biological impulse shared by groups or species of living creatures. There is individual truth also, but this only reaches the status of genuine truth when it reflects ideas shared by larger groups. The fact that our values are not rooted in some universal principle does not make them any less crucial to the future and the harmony of our society. In my view God does not exist.

"BUT, compared to God (the truth Himself), everything else in this world is a lie." - So God invalidates everything he has created? Whatever.

How is Jesus Christ absolute truth, outside of faith? I could say the same about any other diety, but that does not mean they actually are absolute.

"There are two sure things that we know will happen...We will die a mortal death one day and our Lord and Savior and Son of God Jesus Christ will return to earth"
What? Who's we? I don't think that stuff will happen. Faith does not mean truth. It means you THINK you know/understand truth. How do you know that Jesus will return? Doesn't that presuppose he was already here? My point is, that that's a faith based statement. You read in revelations or in some other NT book, that Jesus would return, therefore you believed it. How do you know, that if you didn't the Vedas first, that you wouldn't believe the Hindu version of the tale?

Faith struts so arrogantly, while wearing a veil of humility.

A good effort, but honestly you have failed to convince me. Please read my essay and tell me what you think : )

this reminded me about my Theory of knowledge class, we discuss things like this in it.

Although, i completely disagree with you. The only things that can be called truths are those that can be proven with solid evidence, such as math or science.

god is not an absolute truth only because there is no logical way to prove His existance.

i would love to discus this more with you, send me a message

Really? No one sees the contradictions above.

"Sorry bub, but there is no such thing as truth."

-This is an absolute truth statement.

This statement above although well written is littered with logical fallicies. If anyone wishes to really engage in the topic please feel free to email me. Truth cannot be created, only discovered.
