why even use the word true as in true heart, it is an atavistic metaphorical misdirection?

just learn how to detect when you tell yourself lies, and resist the impulse to keep editing your story. When that happens everything is true, it's not as lofty and magic sounding, but it is the essence of the work.

'The work'?

And when 'the work' is completed, then one is free to belittle others with impunity?

Just wondering red green.

I've seen a lot of posts about 'dumb, broken,' etc - this and that,

So I guess I would ask you -- what in your view is someone like after 'the work' had been completed.

As - from your statements and general presentation, it would seem, as mentioned, to include those mentioned above --

Which, needless to say, do not include what I would call a person who has completed 'the work'

-- Although I would not use such a phrase outside of quotes.

I think this is your best answer OP.
Another example of the answer being simple, unintuitive, and nonmagical.

Just try your best to detect when you tell yourself lies while on your journey of learning / exploring. Thats all you can really do.




Absolute truths though? I think therefore i am. A triangle has 3 sides. The circumference of a circle is its diameter times Pi. That kinda nonsense.


Just take what redgreenvines said. Its the better answer... and youre better off with it.
