Honestly, I think everyone who posts on this board has at the very least felt a spark, even for a second, of "Truth" or of the desire to seek "Truth", regardless of how high the fortress walls protecting their beliefs and ideas now stand. That, in my mind, is admirable. However, many minds here aren't really that open (including my own sometimes), which can make it frustrating to post here at times.

And even it can be frustrating at times it's what makes us grow :smile:.
One of the reasons I love this forum. It makes me re-consider. And as long as we reconsider it means we're not "stuck" :smile:.




What is TRUE? Is it true that a murderer stands to serve less time than someone caught with a pound of pot?

Is it true that a murderer stands to serve less time than a 30 year-old caught having consensual sex with a 14 year-old?

Could one deduce truth?

Could one deduce that the powers that be "hate" the idea of 30/14 year-old consensual sex and drugs more than murder?

Could one induce that perhaps the 'Powers That Be' actually enjoy murder as much as another may enjoy sex or drugs?

Can one deduct that the present 'Administration' is biased and unfair? Does one think there could possibly be 'checks and balances'?

Could one then deduct that existence could resemble a game of 'Snakes & Ladders' whereby when you hit a snake you're a gonner whilst someone else climbs a ladder?

depending who you are and what your aim is would decide what truth is for 'you'.

for me, the truth is to be free... And dispite the country that I'm in, I'm far from being free.

The best way to live
is to be like water
For water benefits all things
and goes against none of them
It provides for all people
and even cleanses those places
a man is loath to go
In this way it is just like Tao        ~Daodejing

Truthfully tho, I think 'truth' is not welcomed.

truthfully, I think Lies are cultivated to protect the powers that be.

Compassionately one may agree that lies can protect someone. For instance one could lie about the expectations one has for the future. "Don't worry, everything's going to be fine, who can help but love a person like you."

Truthfully I expect civilization could take a major step back to a time before plastics and internal-combustion engines, to a time when sawing wood was a chore taking up 2 hours/day every day. Why? Because I think the preservation of the Earth, and the experience of being human, depends on it. A time before laws when there will just be Me & Thee.

IMO, there is truth, which is relative or conditioned, such as her hair is orange, or the American president lives in the White House. And there is Truth, which is absolute/universal/unconditioned. And what is Truth? That which is unborn, uncreated, and unconditioned.

Here my heart knows calm
Safe in your soul
Bathed in your sighs

Or one could deduce that we exist on some sort of prison-planet and that perhaps existences diverge into avenues more suited to temperaments, not necessarily un-pleasant. Where do consciousnesses come from anyway?

Is it induction or deduction to presume somebody knows?

You're trying to mix the universal truth with the material truth.
It will never work.
Anyways... besides your concerns I don't really see where you're getting

You're right...Let's amend the "Human experience" to "The marsupial experience" :smile:
