The Truth is not relative. It is what it is and no matter what “take” you have, it will always be what it is and nothing else. “I’ve come to realize that the biggest problem in the world is that people’s perspectives of reality are compulsively filtered through the mesh of what they want and do not want to be true.” Travis Walton.
The inquiry into what is real and what is not is the highest work of a human being. There are many starting points but all lead to the same destination – THE TRUTH. What is needed right now are more people searching for, understanding and living The Truth. I suggest the following entry points of inquiry – Yoga, Vipassana Meditation, The Bible, The Bahgavad Gita, Kabbalah, Christian Science, Philanthropy, Integral Theory, (www.integrallife.com), Volunteering, Teaching Dharma, The Buddha, Christ. Choose one, choose two, choose all of them just choose. When I say choose I don’t mean become a devotee or believe or have faith in….I mean inquire, check out, investigate, discover. Awaken the seeking mind so that you can awaken the mind that seeks “The Way.” I am not a religious person. My personal inquiry has shown me that most all religion is, at best, corrupted. However, that does not mean there is no Truth to found in religion. You have to dig deep but it is there. And what you find are gold nuggets on the journey. Our job is not to “know” the truth. Not one human being has that ability. It is our job to seek the Truth. With that said, I will end with this quote from The Bible….The words of the Bible were never meant to be taken literally. It is code. Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. “I will bless those who bless you, but I will curse the one who curses you, and all the families of the earth will bless one another by your name.”
