Wisdom Snippets: Truth

Truth. Solipsism? 2 + 2 = 4. Relative and ultimate truths. Here’s some quotes and bits and pieces regarding truth (which doesn’t really need guarding):

Truth is that which conforms to fact and reality. Truth is precise accordance with what is. Truth is the body of real things, actual events, genuine facts. Truth is the authentic nature and condition of something.

Neil Kramer

Truth is not a reward for good behavior nor a prize for passing some tests. It cannot be brought about. It is the primary, the unborn, the ancient source of all that is. You are eligible because you are. You need not merit truth. It is your own..

~Nisargadatta Maharaj

“…people are prepared to transcend all moral boundaries to sustain their view and to fixate upon it beyond all reason. Beyond investigation. Investigation is considered a conspiracy. To actually try to find truth is considered a deviant occupation…”

~Ajahn Sucitto

“Bright, loud and mobile is the false. Subtle and indistinct is the true.”

Master Hsuan Hua in a dream via https://www.abhayagiri.org/talks/7049-spiritual-friends-and-coming-out-of-delusion at 1:20:30

How can there be the experience of truth — it is prior to the beingness? Knowingly you cannot go into that beyond time.

~Nisargadatta Maharaj

Does truth have meaning? If so, is that meaning inherent, assigned, both, or otherwise? If not, does truth need or benefit from meaning?

Belief is the enemy of knowing

Man is least himself when he talks in his own person; give him a mask and he will tell you the truth.

~Oscar Wilde

Truth defends itself.

Truth destroys the world you used to live in.

Truth can never be destroyed.

You can’t change the truth.

The truth is all there is.

There are higher truths as well as lower truths wherein each lower truth acts as a step on a staircase helping you ascend into higher altitudes of perspective.

~Matt Kahn

Two truths teaching in Buddhism — “conventional” or “provisional” (saṁvṛti) truth, and the “ultimate” (paramārtha) truth.

When you want to help people, you tell them the truth. When you want to help yourself, you tell them what they want to hear.

~Thomas Sowell

There are higher truths as well as lower truths wherein each lower truth acts as a step on a staircase helping you ascend into higher altitudes of perspective.

Matt Kahn

Conviction is a person’s highest wealth…. Truth is the highest of tastes. Living with discernment, one’s life is called best.

Alavaka Sutta

The Gift Of Truth Excels All Other Gifts

translation of the Pali ‘Sabba Danam Dhamma Danam Jinati’
Truth is reality. Reality is not on screen. Reality is what’s right in front of you
