The Truth Day II:

We'll continue with Mr. Gandhi's discussion on what is truth.

Truth never damages a cause that is just.
Life is an aspiration. Its mission is to strive after perfection, which is self-realization. The ideal must not be lowered because of our weaknesses or imperfections. I am painfully conscious of both in me. The silent cry daily goes out to Truth to help me to remove these weakness and imperfections of mine.
No Abandonment of Truth
Believe me when I tell you, after 60 years of personal experience, that the only real misfortune is to abandon the path of truth. If you but realize this, your one prayer to God will always be to enable you to put up, without flinching, with any number of trials and hardships that may fall to your lot in the pursuit of truth.
Truth alone will endure, all the rest will be swept away before the tide of time. I must, therefore, continue to bear testimony to Truth even if I am forsaken by all. Mine may today be a voice in the wilderness, but it will be heard when all other voices are silenced, if it is the voice of Truth.
A man of faith will remain steadfast to truth, even-though the whole world might appear to be enveloped in falsehood.
When it is relevant, truth has to be uttered, however unpleasant it may be. Irrelevance is always untruth and should never be uttered.

God's View:"The Truth" by Ted Godsil

With so many opinions on what truth is to any number of individuals, how can we know the truth as far as the whole is concerned?The truth to me may not be understandable to you or vice verse.
There seems to be many layers of truth. There is the everyday,tell the truth,there is truth in the laws of physics and mathematics, and the gorilla in the closet of truth in religion.
I think with so much room for disagreement with"The Truth," we need to interject another formula or law of being to control the consequences of "The Truth."
That law is tolerance. With tolerance all truths become harmonious and with harmony comes peace. Just a thought. So what do you think?

Have a sunny day. Fine Art and Gems .
