The Question of Truth

And that truth will set you free

As children growing up we are taught to speak the truth as we see it, yet we learn to see that truth is often a matter of perspective and in some situations where a number of people have witnessed the same event, their telling is different because they all saw from a different perspective, a major problem when the law is involved. So what is referred to as the truth today is a convenient concept that most of us can agree upon.

This most of us has come to distinguish between various truths in relation to what we choose to believe this. The Christians believe that there heavenly guard is real even though

A moral insight into our suffering

Right from birth we are encouraged to tell the truth even though sometimes we have no idea what it looks like because we are living in a world where the truth is suppressed and the education system along with our politicians and corporate masters feed us so many lies that some don’t believe the truth ever existed.

According to a 19th century legend, the Truth and the Lie meet one day.

The Lie says to the Truth: “It’s a marvellous day today”!

The Truth looks up to the skies and sighs, for the day was really beautiful. They spend a lot of time together, ultimately arriving beside a well. The Lie tells the

Lies; The New Truth

An inversion of values

By lmsunshine94 @ Tumblr

In as much as very few people know the absolute truth of existence, humanity has always had a sense of what is true, what is untrue and the need for truth in a relative way. Our entire legal framework is established on the precept that there is some truth as to what happened in a particular situation and that truth must be revealed to establish innocence or guilt.

For the ordinary people, truth was that we must eat to live, we must reproduce to sustain the population and we must perform certain activities and behave in certain ways to maintain social harmony. Beyond this, any other idea such as the existence

Beyond Belief

Grand delusions

What we know and what we believe are two entirely things. We know the sky is blue and the grass is green because we have direct experience and because we have direct experience, there is no need to believe because we know.

But with believe, we don’t know and we can never know until we have that definitive experience and until that time every belief is only a speculative theory.

There are some aspects of knowledge that like planet Earth being round we accept as truth because it is based on a collective testimony and when we question that understanding, that can be tested and proven as fact.

So let’s take God as an example of belief. Many

Truth

A distinct variable seen from the eye of each beholder

Most of what we consider the truth is only educated guesswork and until we can definitively know the ultimate nature of our existence, truth will remain hidden.

The truth about our universe, the truth about who committed that crime, the truth about who actually did some thing, the truth about who will win lotto is unknowable to anyone.

Our universe

Some believe the truth is that God created heaven and earth in six days, others believe the truth is that God created the universe in 155 billion years. Truth is beyond belief, truth can only be known, until then, it is only guesswork.

When you commit an action, you
