So some time ago, maybe 2 years ago, I came across a website called truthcontest.com. I don't remember how I came across it, but nothing ever grabbed at my depth like that website did. It shook my very being and I've been working on a response to their question "What Is The Truth of Life?" I've seen the site mentioned a few times since then, and last night I saw it mentioned again. I've been sitting here for the past six hours trying to answer that question, and just when I think I have it, a new paragraph starts. Anyway, I'm trying to simplify things as much as possible...

"Whether multiple lives are something that we experience in 75 years, or countless eons, we can all agree in continuity. Throw a rock into a pond and watch what happens. The fish swim away, the birds flee, and sounds are made. But we have to consider what goes on metaphysically. Those fish are going to warn others, and so will the birds. As this effect reaches farther down the line, the truth is diminished. Suddenly we are no longer talking about the truth, or fear, but what everyone else’s interpretation of the truth is, and eventually used to be.

Let’s discuss lies. Lies come from previous experiences. Just like the rock that was thrown into a body of water. The birds and the fish make a big deal out of being scared, and they pass the message on to creatures that were entirely unaffected. Maybe even careless, or, annoyed. Soon the message of annoyance is spread, which somewhere down the line will have turned into every other emotion at some point or another. So by time this message gets to the third creature, the truth is no longer true. It is inaccurate.

Where do we get the truth? We get it from the source. Where/what is the source? Whatever started everything. We know how truth is diluted in mere seconds, so imagine what can happen in 75 years. We can’t count on books; We can’t rely on systems; and we cannot procrastinate if we are to know the truth. We must act now. How do we act?

Without fear. Fear is a deterrent, therefore an obstacle. We need to tear it down and leave it behind, once we are ready. When are we ready? When we are no longer afraid. But don’t wait idly, simply hoping for fear to fade because wallowing in fear is another obstacle. Just like instruments are practiced, so are old habits left behind.

Gravity holds us down. Without this attachment, we would literally fall apart. So we must adapt if we are to find out the truth. If we cannot attain enlightenment physically due to physical attachments such as gravity, we must act metaphysically. We must switch our thinking and look deep, deep inside ourselves in order to begin the search for truth. If obstacles are holding us down, why would we use dogmatic thinking in the quest for truth? We eventually release dogmatic thinking, and adopt a new mindset of possibility."

I might actually spend the rest of my life trying to answer this question.

Good post WindSong.

If we went back to our initial creation of consciousness itself would we find this answer & is it important to know?

I think everything has always existed as pure conscious energy however by experiencing this consciousness in fragmented form in time we seem to be changing this initial truth however that's an illusion.

It would seem it's saying realities like this are an illusion but that's not quite correct for the main reason we are experiencing portions of this initial truth so it's really saying we are not being all we are, it's not a total illusion because it's not a total truth.

For me it's not important to know, what part of us wants to know, the inner self or the controlling ego? The ego wants to know what the inner self is aware of however the inner self has no such desire for the ego to know if there is no need to know.

I feel the inner self only works on needs not desires, is there a need for us to know such questions? Not for me at this point as an individual however the big question is do we need to know collectively?

I believe we really need to collectively firstly learn to live & think for a need to be able to answer questions like this & we are far from that collectively.





Acceptance of all leads to true spiritual awareness.

There's just something about this question bugging me every day, waiting to be answered. I am not sure if we should know this collectively, but I WANT(need?) to know individually.
What would we know about space without exploration and curiosity?
What would we know about the ocean?
I've been told I think too much, by people who think so little, they are in jail.
This is just my perspective. Everyone's is different. Earth would be mundane without individuality.

I get the same WindSong, I think too much.

If you feel so strongly about it go for it & don't worry about what other people think or don't think.

Acceptance of all leads to true spiritual awareness.
