If you abide in My word... you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:31-32).
Our original Buddha nature is, the highest truth, devoid of any objectivity, it is void, omnipresent, silent, pure, it is glorious mysterious, peaceful, Joey; and that’s all
Inter deeply into it, by weakening to it yourself.
That what is before you in all its fullness is utterly complete
“Say O lord!
Let my entry be by the gate of truth and likewise, my exited by the gate of truth
And guide me by thy presence an authority and victory
And say: “truths has arrived And falsehood has perished
For falsehood is perishable (by nature)”
[ Quraan Surat al Isra81]
"The Principles of Truth are Seven; he who knows these, understandingly, possesses the Magic Key before whose touch the Doors of the Temple fly open
." The Kybalion" Hermes Trismegistus
Krisna talks to Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita
Many times you perhaps have wondered like me what is “the truth”? We enquire, perhaps we resolve; or we think we do, the courts are full of cases of people believe that they know “the truth”; history is full of battlefields both sides have god and "the truth” on their side…!
What is “truth “?
look deeper yet, there is another question with a subtle difference, but with a profound fundamental implication
What is “truth “?
How do we find the “TRUTH”?, And how do we recognize it? If we come across it;
“What is truth?”……… Pilate asked. And he goes on and orders the crucifixion of a man who said I am the truth;
It is the ultimate loss in once lifetime when he stumbles upon the truth and not recognizes it .
Realizing the truth, turns out to be not so easy of a task…! And it is not easy recognized… even if it came face to face with you! But once you cross any stage of realization, you would say of course .it is abundantly obvious
How near the Truth, yet how far we seek!
Like one standing in midst of water crying, of thirst",
"Hakuin Zenji ";
So bring your lamp of curiosity and your longings lets go and look for it The truth in mythology
We live today in turmoil of myths and myth symbols; fragments large and small of traditional influence that gave rise and fall for civilizations;….. Believes intertwined with superstitions.
The word "mythology" is a combination of two nouns, in the Greek language, which have a long history and interesting interpretation behind them; these are mythos and logos;
In the beginning they had the same power in ordinary speech; for in Homer's time they were used indifferently, sometimes one is taken, and sometimes the other.
In Attic, the dialect of Ancient Greek spoken and written in Attica and Athens Greek, Mythos signified (a prehistoric story of the Greeks). The application of the word Myth among scholars is plain enough, being a myth of Greece only; it is now used to mean a myth of any tribe of people on earth.
In search the meaning of the word itself "mythos" which originally meant "speech" or ‘verbal expression’ in speech or writing word, which later came to mean "fable" or "legend". Sometimes "myth" is defined as a story of forgotten origin, it is basically religious or supernatural in nature, which tries to explain or rationalize a prospective or aspects of the world according to the indigenes people; The most common association of the words myth and mythical is with what is incredible and fantastic.
Sometimes Myths have been used, in vulgar evaluation to be synonymous with falsehood or lies; the word myth that we use in everyday speech refers to any unreal or imaginary story.
The thoughtless dismissal of myth as fiction or a lie is the most naive and misleading definition of all.
How often do we hear the expression, "It's a myth," uttered in derogatory in contrast with such laudable, Worthy of praise and commendable concepts as reality, Facts, the meaningful, or a Statements of truth
As opposed to the discoveries of science, whose truths continually change, Mythos meant,
In the widest sense, anything uttered by the mouth of man--a word, an account of something, a story understood by the narrator. Myth, like art is eternal. Myth in a sense is the highest reality; it is mans expressions or depictions of what he believes life is; many such myths are most comprehensive. Some myths describe some actual historical event, Over time Myths have been told and retold without written documentation, so various storytellers retold it now it is impossible to tell what really happened, all myths are, at some stage, actually believed to be true by the peoples of the societies that used or originated the myth, Sometimes myths, where a religion believes.
A myth is also distinctly different from an allegory or parable an expressive style that uses fictional characters and events to describe some subject by suggestive resemblances; an extended metaphor, a visible symbol representing an abstract idea, a short moral story (often with animal characters); which is a story deliberately made up to illustrate some moral or philosophical point or a virtue which has never been assumed to be true by anyone.
Also Myth serves to interpret the whole of human experience and that interpretation can be true or fictitious, valuable or insubstantial, quite apart from its historical veracity, and conveying the truth.
Now Logos grew to mean (the inward make up as well as the outward form of thought); therefore became the expression of ideas, images, representations, expressions characterized by perfect conformity to fact or truth; strictly correct thought--which is exact because it corresponds to universal and unchanging principles and reached its highest exaltation in becoming not only the reason in man, but the reason in the universe—
“The divine wisdom manifests in the creation, and redemption of the world and often identified with the second person of the Trinity”.
The Divine Logos, according (Miriam – Webster) dictionary is the Son of God, or God Himself.
