Re: Obsessed with the truth..The real truth
The REAL truth? Well, I have come to think that it is VERY, VERY difficult to arrive at the absolute REAL truth while we are in these physicial bodies. Love is certainly at the center of it, but from what little glimpses I have been blessed to have, love as experienced on the spiritual realm of reality is so intense, powerful, all-enveloping and pure that it is incomprehensible to a human.
And I think here on earth there is no one real truth. That's half the game; that's the reason for all the differences; is to learn that and honor that, IMHO.
You're on the right track, though, I think. Read all the traditional stuff; read all the "far out" stuff; and you will synthesize something that works for you.
Right now my focus is working on cultivating loving thoughts towards everyone . . . getting rid of all those little criticisms and judgements that run through my head and steer my thoughts towards compassion and understanding. Well . . . it certainly is not easy!!!
