Truth isn’t a made up story, it’s not something that can be held onto, it’s only known when it’s realized there’s nothing to know and it’s in the not knowing that the truth will set you free.
To me it’s clear what truth is and here’s why: Nine years ago when I started to look into a different way to live my life, at the core of this looking was an urge to find peace. I didn’t know much about anything, but I did know I needed a different way to view life. I understood one thing, that my own mind was the cause as to why I wasn’t at peace, so I set out to find out why this was and if it was possible to be at peace. As this process of self inquiry proceeded, my view was slowly becoming different and as this happened my life become less and less about me. It didn’t become about anyone else, it just wasn’t all about fulfilling my wants and desires anymore; when this happens qualities associated with love naturally arise. This doesn’t mean everything goes the way that it’s wanted, but it’s does mean it doesn’t matter how it goes because if it’s not all about me then there’s no story of wanting and needing things a certain way and without a story one is at peace.
Truth is difficult to describe in words because it’s interpreted differently by everyone, but I have found truth in the space of what is; not what is itself, in the space of what is. What is is given many labels depending on what’s occurring at the time. It can horrible, beautiful, or neutral, the label doesn’t change what’s actually occurring, being in the space of what’s occurring changes it and that’s because without a label there’s only space. In this space there’s no story and without a story is when truth is revealed. It’s not a made up truth, it’s the truth of just being with what’s here right now and not needing to add a label or story to it. In this space is where one finds truth, but it has nothing to do with you or anyone else and this is when one will clearly see the truth that will set you free.
