We all have our own individual belief systems and what we hold as fundamentally true depends upon our beliefs. Soon the world population will reach the 7 billion mark and so there will be a potential of 7 billion truths, more or less different.
Is there any single truth that is universally accepted? not to my knowledge. My question is this: how many truths are there, 7 billion or zero?
I think for each of us there are countless, everchanging truths in any given moment on this physical plateau .As we grow and expand and change our minds consistently our truth changes accordingly, but it is always relative to where we are at on our journey.
However, I also think there is only one absolute Truth that never changes because it is the pure essence of who we are and who we will always be...and that my friend is Love.

How about one?
Or in the words of Descartes, "I think, therefore I am."

Look deeply into your eyes in a mirror and realize that:
I Exist Now
When you think about it, that's the one truth that's undeniable and indisputable and which doesn't require any form of belief. Most other things are open to individual interpretation and hence belief; belief in the form of individual opinions, assertions and delusions.
And from there, from that place of knowing, belief or insanity we attempt communication with others, who have their own form of opinions, assertions and gods; be they of a spiritual or materialistic nature. And right there is where all of the confusion, ugliness and mess begin...

I was adding some comments about truth on my last answer and I realized after posting the comment that I could expand on it further here because the question is specific about Truth.
I believe that it is easier to see truth for what it is without all the cultural and personal expectations dressing it up to be something much more than its raw simplicity as energy.
Truth is the ultimate expression of the Law of Attraction.
It is the perfect reflection of itself into a medium that is interpreted by our six senses, the sixth being consciousness.
So you encounter energy and you make an assessment if the energetic imprint that it awakens within your consciousness matches the taste, smell, touch, sound, sight, or analytical response.
Depending on how perfect the match is you begin to assess the experience as being "Truthful"
So we are actually talking about "alignment" when we are looking at Truth.
The greater the alignment between the energy and its counterpart, "REALITY", the more truthful our experience of it becomes.
We tend to think Truth is a measure of something being good or bad, or the other culprit of "Absolute Truth" implying that the assessment of this truth has reached its pinnacle and now cannot be disputed by any other point of reference.
The problem is that such a statement has more to do with possession of authority over the domain of "truth" of the subject at hand.
I think the Truth within an experience (it can be an idea) has to do with the perspective of the individual and the alignment or more correctly, the ability of the individual to align with the data until it's truthful.
Here's an odd experiment that illustrates this better.
Let’s say that there is a bright yellow ball that is suspended on a string and it is being observed by 3 individuals, all of whom are wearing glasses that are tinted.
The first individual wears green tinted glasses and insists that the ball is blue.
The second wears blue tinted glasses and insists that the ball is green.
The third wears red tinted glasses and insists that the ball is orange.
All of these statements are Truthful from those individual perspectives.
Then the ambassador from the "absolute truth" camp comes along and says "I have no glasses on and I can see that the ball is yellow and this is the absolute truth".
Now here is the problem.
The human experience IS the tinted glass, and a large part of that tint is one's belief system.
Our consciousness is the tint.
It is with our consciousness that we are trying to explain and understand the "Truth"
We are trying to get to the "Truth" by thinking about it.
As long as we are thinking about it we are looking at energy reflection through tinted glasses.
And we will forever be perplexed as to why the others don't comprehend the "Truth" that is so obvious to ourselves.
Within thought there is an instant alignment of energy that is in harmony with that thought.
When this alignment translates into an experience (even if it is an experience only within your consciousness) in that moment, it becomes its own truth.
It is the fulfillment of the energy into experience.
And so if you truly believe that life is hell, every time you can verify this in your own experience it becomes YOUR truth.
Once it is "Truth", how can you make it disappear?
The only thing you can do is catch yourself in the moment of building your own wall of "Truth"
The Wall of Truth that eventually imprisons most of us.
So in embracing Truth, we un-intentionally adopt a narrower and narrower perspective of "This is how things should be", after all this is the Truth.
It is more liberating to see Truth for what it really is.
Nothing is “true”, per say, but whatever you choose to believe will be proven to you by LOA. It’s just like the Assassin’s... Creed(lol): “Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.” That’s basically the secret to reality! There is no Truth (or rather, not in the way humans may view it- a truth that invalidates other potential “truths”), only what we decide is true for us- and each has the choice for themself. Now I believe there’s a Whole version of us, beyond time that contains the entirety of our experience, and that could be said to be our Godself, and it knows All to be true and resists nothing (creation is really attraction, and ‘God’ creates All by attracting/allowing All). If something isn’t in your personal experience, you can shift your beliefs to align with infinite potentialities (potential realities)— it’s not that they don’t exist, you just aren’t personally experiencing them because either you have limiting beliefs or you haven’t built any momentum on the subject! Just like on a tv or radio, everything is playing, but you’re only seeing what you’re tuned to/what channel you’re on. Anything you can imagine Is. Everything is true/real somewhere/somewhen.
well there are both. the truth is only from a personal point of view. i see this even in my channeling . it is all teh way we see things. that is my point of veiw, in teh seth material they talk about a great many veiws. liseten here.
love n light

Have you ever noticed that great spiritual leaders of any faith seem to all be of the same faith??? This seems to tell me that as we approach God, as we get closer and closer to being like God, that the truth also approaches one singularity. Michaela says that this one truth is love. I agree. The absolute way to communicate through the Mind of God is with compassionate love- agape. If you wear the armor of God, which is compassion and love, then you can communicate in any way, in any language, in any speed, without any effort. The truth, then, is like a scientific formula. As love increases to infinity, so millions of individual truths decrease to a singularity.
beingness does equate with one of the definitions of truth,

you want the truth here it is: i am. i have free will. i decided to experiance this world. what ever happens is depending on the choice i make. also other people choice might affect me or my decision because we are all living together and all connected together. do i have to comply or agree with every one decision? no i do not have to. do i need to live in harmony with other yes i do. why i need to live in harmony with other people? to make this life better for my self and other. does it mean i have to accept other people ways? not neccecarely i can respect them but first respect my own way. belief is what i experiance and know to be true. does it mean that belief going the other way are not true? it depends on what you experiance and what you understand from it. so experiance and enjoy.

One Truth: We are all Creators because we are made in the image and likeness of The Creator/Source/God.
Many worlds/realities created from that basic Truth.

5 billion reasons? as 2 billion of the population dont get iodine in their diet so are unable to think for themselves.
we dont have free will as we have not experienced everything so cannot know all the angles
just enjoy life as thats all you will ever have and that can be taken away from you at any time. dont believe the word of another human because you cannot possibly know if they have it right.
