The path of truth.

What is truth? That word is usually used in relation with something factual. It is true that I slept last night. It is true that I was a Brahma Kumaris follower, etc. Those are simple facts.

Those facts are seen as truth and therefore most will extrapolate that finding into their spiritual experience.

In spirituality there are many “truths” and not necessarily equal to each other. For instance, who is God? Most every religion has its own take on that. They have their own “patent” on God, but yet they claim to have the “true” God with them. As shared before, spirituality is very subjective in nature. However, there is a common ground which deals with that inherent subjectivity; that is to find your own truth, yourself. There cannot be religions having the truth about each one of us.

In a world where the masses rule, where “majority wins,” and the truth is reflected in that incomplete premise; then we have the world of spirituality which cannot be like the former, but diametrically different just to complement it. A self-realized person is the outcome of the spiritual path. While the masses are interested in “right” answers, a self-realized person knows the truth of himself.

A self-realized man cannot be a politician. He cannot be the one solving problems created by unbalanced minds. His truth is to realize himself and thus, nothing is lacking. There is no further search, the truth is no longer something to seek for it is “within.”

Life has many paths for each individual. There are no recipes of self-realization but we learn to cook as ingredients appear unexpectedly in Life and the beauty of that unfolds: To be able to produce a tasty and wholesome meal to share with others. That is the art. Thus, a self-realized person is there to be recognized by his presence. That is the teaching in itself. It is a living teaching for others in contact with such person.

There is no prototype of what a self-realized man should look like or the way he should behave, for subjectivity is not the measurement stick. His footprints will do the talk.

Life is experiential. Theory, dogma and mental understanding does not change who we ARE. As those life experiences are processed and assimilated without rejection, we will see that Life itself will turn lead into gold. Life is the alchemist, although others may call that alchemist God or the Drama. While those looking for the truth of who the true alchemist is and whether in fact, he/she/it can do that “magic trick;” there are others looking at the truth of that inner change.

At the end, the truth is not in our finding of facts outside of ourselves, that is a mental game only. The truth is in the exploration of the “inside.” Once the inside is found, it will be just like the outside. Therefore, here is my “theory of everything”: Consciousness is the alpha and omega. That sentence cannot be explained for everything will be spoiled. For those who have followed these writings, perhaps it is a good time to realize that “truth” cannot be put into words. It is not a paragraph that we can tell to another, a dogma. It has to be realized…. but yet, i wrote my truth. Isn’t that paradoxical, insane and confusing? Understanding happens when there is no push to try to understand. Until then. 🙂
