Consider: And it is said the truth is the truth, but is one truth more important than others?

truth is an illusion that can not be understood by humanity at this time

I think you are on to something here, but I personally would flip that statement the other way. I think that "truth is an illusion that can only be understood by humanity at this time". Why? Because our ability to define it = understanding or understanding = our ability to define it. But all that we have accomplished from that mental gymnastics is to lock our consciousness within a predictable illusion of vision, language and analysis.

Yes. That represents my thoughts more. Teamwork buddy!

You know I love you Michael and you really don't need to convince me of anything. We're all hear trying to be 'awake' and stay 'aware' of our ego and that my friend is no easy task for any of us. I know what I say to you is already within your own 'awareness' but I guess as humans we still need it pointed out to us by someone else occasionally. I really do get your hangup about the whole 'materialistic' side of the LOA. Funnily enough for me I'm probably having more challenges in that area since beginning to wake up than when I was leading a totally unconscious life. However I know I am

creating every one of them and within each is the seed for optimal growth. I KNOW within the chaos I am growing and I love the person I am becoming. Just a few short years ago I was probably one of those people who was all about me me me but thankfully I'm awake enough now to realize that it was all fear based so it makes it pretty easy for me to no longer be irked by those who are still caught up in that. They're really not happy and are seeking for some-Thing to fill that void... it's easier to feel compassion for them.Stay in touch...Love & Light :) Michaela

the truth lives, though for most of us it is relative,
usually little room left over for it after life learned traditions, culture, norms and group loyalities.
lets stop trying to bend it, instead of actually perceiving/seeing it

The truth changes with perspective, fully integrated honesty stays constant. Try to seek fully integrated honesty all through your life. You will find a lot more enlightenment in the fully integrated honesty approach. It was once the "truth" the earth is flat and if you go too far out in the ocean you will fall off the edge into the abyss. But it was always fully integrated honesty that until we found out, we did not know what we did not know. That is the difference fully integrated honesty says I don't know what I don't know. It does not seek some kind of mystical excuse as an answer just because it has been passed down for many years. The mystical is fun but it will not build a future because it by its existence has to stop progress, it says "I don't need to seek I know what is." "I don't need to travel the ocean I know we'll fall off the edge!" But Columbus used fully integrated honesty trying to see if he kept going where he would end. He thought maybe he would traverse the world and end up at the opposite side of then Hindustan that we now know as India. But he used fully integrated honesty in seeking rather then just saying "I don't have to find out I know if I travel that ocean I will end up at the other side of Hindustan!"

The mystical says believe and do not explore but accept what is, like climbing a mountain in Greek times, "Stop what are you doing! Don't climb that mountain you will defile the Gods and bring their wrath upon us all!!!" He goes and climbs to meet these Gods anyway and finds nothing but the most beautiful amazing view. If he is fully mystical this would be a disappointment, if he had at least some integrated honesty he would appreciate what he saw for what it is.

A very thoughtful, and inspiring answer, thank you.

Yes be open to learn in life's journey nothing expected. If you come to the table of life with an empty plate you may fill your plate. If you come to the table of life with a full plate your plate is already full of what ever you brought yourself.
