A Note on Truth
I will not tell you the truth on this website. You might ask, “what good is it then?”
It is a pointer, nothing more.
I cannot tell you the truth, because the truth does not reside in a few symbolic words or letters. It doesn’t reside in grammar, syntax, or structure. It doesn’t reside in a phrase, a paragraph, or a page. Neither does it reside in a book, or even a library of books. We won’t find it there.
The ultimate truth can only be experienced, directly, personally, primarily, and in the first-person. I can’t give it to you. No one can. I can only point in the general direction, and at times point more specifically.
This is all that teachers are really doing—they are pointing. The wisest will point towards the way for you to come into possession of the truth for yourself, to discover it on your own. They won’t attempt to give it to you from them. The truth is not theirs to give. It never was. It can’t be communicated from one person to another. It can only be truly discovered and known through one’s own direct experience.
