If one isn’t looking inward when questions arise, answers aren’t going to be revealed. You’ll just bounce around making up answers which only distracts you from looking inward and revealing truth.I was having a discussion with someone and we were talking about truth. I was asked to define truth to them, my answer was simple; truth is something based in the facts of what is. I was then asked to give an example and so I gave my favorite description of truth, which is a bottle of water filled half way. To me it’s neither half empty nor half full, either answer is an opinion. The only fact that can be stated is that there’s liquid in the bottle so this answer can’t really be debated and when an answer can’t truly be debated, that’s how one will know it’s truth.
Truth is beautiful and when we look for our answers inward, the beauty of truth is revealed. This occurs naturally, we only need to inquiry within to discover this; this is the only way truth will be revealed. It has always been there, but unfortunately we have been conditioned to look in the wrong places or not look for it at all. Our outward conditioning justifies so much of our behavior and blocks truth from being known, that is until one looks within.
Lie to yourself, justify whatever it is you want to justify, but the sad truth of our society most people’s existence isn’t based in truth. If you’re not looking inward for your answers, you are living a lie. Truth will only be discovered when it is sought from within. Why most of us don’t look inward is because the Conditioned Mind tells us it’s not necessary, that we are doing okay with the way things are, besides it’s much easier to point the finger at someone else, but the truth is we aren’t doing okay with the way things are and this is because most people think their answers are outside of themselves. Our politicians look outside, the judicial system looks outside, religion looks outside, the economist look outside, and on and on; most people in general look outside. There are no answers outside, there are only distractions to keep one from looking inward and getting real answers. And those answers when looked for inward are based in truth, but most people live the lie that their answers are outside and to look inward is unnecessary. Know the truth and it will set you free, but only if you’re looking inward.
