I realize it's possible to get caught up in a lot of concerns about money, relationships, pains, hunger, and other things I have to deal with each day. None of these seem to be based on anything real. They just seem to draw my attention this way and that, without any real direction or meaning at the heart of it all. Since we just appear here out of another human, who also had no idea of her true nature or role here, is it possible to find out something true about myself, my life, and what is really going on?

The truth is, "You Are". You Are and I Am. We Are Life, here and now. We do have choices, we could laugh about it or cry about it, but at the end of the day, you will always Be. If you want more information try meditating, go inside and listen to your heart to hear what it has to tell you.

Light and Peace

what does meditating have to do with it? how will meditation bring me closer to finding out something true about myself and my place here, if any?

The truth is in your heart. Not just any old meditation will do. Take your awareness out of your brain and put it in your heart. We can analize this or that with our heads, but our heart knows the truth.

Only you can answer that question. The best you'll get here is to be pointed in the right direction. All the answers you need reside within. I cannot tell you your Truth because I don't have a clue what it is. The best I can do is share my current Truth with you in the hope that you might glean something from it - for some it will resonate, for others not.

You can discern what resonates as True for you among the questions and answers here, by how they make you feel. However,your ultimate truth can only be realized by going within and experiencing that knowing which resides there. For most of us this becomes a journey and a process and over time the answers become clearer as we begin to quiet the egoic mind and trust the stillness.

so, are you saying there is more than one truth, and that it is subjective to each person? does that mean that what is true for one can be false for another? that seems to negate any possibility of truth.

"children, define thou thy terms!" -Jesus, after overhearing a conversation between disciples in which, after hours of heated debate, Mathew finally made clear that by truth he meant absolute truth, whereas Thomas had been operating under the assumption he meant truth as the functional accuracy of a statement.

It really doesn't matter to me what another's 'Truth' is because their 'Truth' doesn't affect my life experience, I am only concerned with what resonates as "Truth' for me. As I learn and grow my 'Truth' changes accordingly and without a doubt what resonates as true for me could be false to another as we're all at different stages on our journey. However, this does not make another's 'Truth' false because where they are at on their journey, it's obviously true for them.This makes it very easy to see that there's really no 'right' or 'wrong' because in their own mind everyone is 'right':)

Yes! You create your own reality, and your life is an illusion! What do you want to create differently in your life to receive the fulfillment you seek?

Truth implies an object-subject relationship of this subject proved this object 'true'. This is impossible as no objective state exists, only what we call subjective.

Your 'Self' is just as malleable as everything you experience. That might be as close to 'truth' as it gets.

Enjoy the ride!

lets start with that you exist,
then somehow you got to be where you are today,
did anything you do during that time arise form you,
you are the one in control of what truths are to you,
but then who is marking the bullseye
