Understanding the TRUTH....

A question arising in everyone`s (Who think about

himself/ herself, life and surrounding) mind at

least for one time or more during life. The most
important factor about *TRUTH* is that more you

think about it moreyou confused. Fine element

behind this reason is that *TRUTH* is not a conclusion

but is a an experience.

Normally we think about any subject then

discussing, arguing and finally reach at any conclusion.

Here we make mistake we have not chosen right path
for finding out truth and so got above result. We can
say we do not have *UNDERSTANDING* of finding

right path.


It can not be defined as it is beyond time, space,

birth and death. Actually any happening is in time and

have birth, death, becoming younger or elder, becoming

old or new but beyond time there is no question of it.

This is only brief description about truth as we all

belongs to time and space.

So truth is *PURE TRUTH* as and when it

belongs to individual one. If some one say about it,

discussing about it, arguing about it as this all belongs

to time and space and result there is no…..


Above all activities comes during the journey

to truth but activities only .So truth belongs to individual

as it is an experience. Althoughindividual`sexperience

about truth is same but surprisingly can not be share and

description about path on which you can reach to truth

is not same.

Here is a birth of religion. That is why there is

wide difference between spirituality and religion. A

spiritual man must be religion one but religion man

may not be spiritual.

The difference between religion and spirituality is like the difference between the sea and water. Think of spirituality as pure water and religion the sea. The sea is mostly water. But it is contaminated by salt and silt, pollution of all kinds, marine life, rotting things, junk, boats, ships, and trash. People tend to corrupt spirituality with religion. That is because most folks do not know the truth and never appreciate it whenever they encounter it. And so, they try to make truth conform to their biases, ambitions, hopes, dreams, and ideas. But the truth is the truth and nothing can be substituted for it no matter how much we want to make fanciful notions, BS, and lies seem truthful.
Sanyal, edit and clean up this poem and it will be a winner. For instance:

"Fine element

behind this reason is that *TRUTH* is not a conclusion

but is a an experience."
Perhaps, you could consider leaving it at:
"but an experience."

Alot to ponder....As I sit here thinking about what you have said in this essay. Alot of things come to mind. Say for instance...The word TRUTH came from but yet man. RELIGION...came from yet something Man created. SPIRITUALITY...yet comes from the creativity of Man. So it all had to start from someone, right? Men, and there rules of religion, Men and their rules for spirituality, and Men with their definition of the word Truth? So everything had to be founded from somewhere, someone, or something. So to me...."In the beginning was the Word (truth), and the Word(truth) was with God, and the Word(truth) was God." Found in the bible John 1:1. So the wide differences in religion and spirituality is basically created by Man.

Hmmm...makes me think. Pondering a great deal! Thank you for sharing your essay. You've gave me some things to think about. I liked it very much! Got my mind thinking.......Hope you don't mind me sharing that tidbit with you, as my mind started going, so thought I would share what I was thinking with you.

Respected kred35,

First of all thanks for commenting on my essay.Truly speaking
your above sharing is coming from your heart that is why one can not stopped it not even you.I think one should always share with others what he thinks, this is right track for justifying oneself.

In my lookout regarding this subject, what i feel is, as it`s belongs to individual and *SELF EXPERIENCE* no one can easily describe what he feels because an effort for *DESCRIBING* is
related to space and time.That is why this is extreme pain that you feel properly but can not share properly with others.I feel you are going through this situation and so your *PAIN* is at right position.

At last your comment is so divine till i have received.

thanks again

Interesting idea. I think that truth is unchangable, regardless of how one sees truth. But SOME truth can be expirienced, but it can get lost in the dwelling of what is "found", thus one should seek for more. Like a jig saw puzzle. Be the seeker should be warned. If you have a painting, then it is photographed and that picture is made in to a jig saw puzzle, can that puzzle be considered a work of art? Religion was "formed" by the dwelling on a little peice of truth that was revealed. Also, I do not thing that a spiritual man MUST be religous, because TRUTH be told, I am Christian, which is a faith, I am not of any denomination, I am only a faither(one who lives in faith). But I think you hit it in the button, that the religous man may not be spiritual. Tyrone.

First of all, sanyal29, thanks for welcoming me. You asked me to give feedback, and I'm very happy to give it. This essay is fantastic. It's not a light-hearted one I think, but still, this essay is well written and has a meaning and theme. After giving feedback I must ask you to please read my work - a short story named 'Defeat Turns to Victory'. You can view it from my booksie page. Or, you can go to the 'War and Military' section and search it.
