    TRUTH???

    1. What is it?

    The truth is what one believes to be factual whether it's accurate or not.



    2. How do we know when one has it?

    If you sincerely believe it, it is true.



    3. DO good sounding words constitute truth?

    No.



    4. Can it be found in a book?

    Yes if you sincerely believe in what you read.


    5. Is truth Universal?

    No, it's an individual concept depending on one's own mentality.



    6. Is one persons truth, anothers truth?

    No, and this the very nature of truth.

    If you sincerely believe the world is flat, then tell other's it's flat...you didn't lie....you told the TRUTH (as you know it).

    Truth and facts are separate.



    7. Have hue-mans brought TRUTH down to a level that they can understand?

    I don't quite understand this question, but some have.

    God

    When one truly sees with their third eye.

    3. DO good sounding words constitute truth?

    No.

    No; however, the path can be in a book.

    5. Is truth Universal?

    6. Is one persons truth, anothers truth?

    There is only one truth, even to those who don't know it or refuse it accept it. So the answer is yes.

    Truth has been hidden from the masses, people can understand it if they seek it.

    Our mind is of 3 categories: what we know, what we don’t know, and what we don’t know we don’tknow. Not knowing is unfortunate; not knowing that we don’t know is tragic. - W. Erhart

    my truth..

    1. What is it?
    Truth i believe is a way of life and on earth is really largely related to different forms of perception..it's inert within us and can be revealed by tapping into our consciousness and overstanding our experiences and purpose
    2. How do we know when one has it?
    that's interesting to think about..and will serve alot searchers well..considering there are relatives and absolutes..knowing the truth is based on that relationship yu maintain with yourself and GOD-THE ALL(how u see IT),..and an understanding of ''rightness' within, and the nine principles of rigteousness..that lead yu into development

    3. DO good sounding words constitute truth?
    truth is simple..basic..but the hardest to come by..i dont know why?..

    4. Can it be found in a book?
    it being found in a book is up to the individual..i mean how do yu find out about things around yu?..either practically or theoritically..then u come to some kinda conclusion..therefore i believe truth can be found anywhere with anyone, in anything..once yu're open to it..

    5. Is truth Universal?
    THE TRUTH can be a universal principle..however how yu get to it is not..

    6. Is one persons truth, anothers truth?
    yes and no....everyones different...therefore relative in terms of detail..but conclusions could be similar..

    7. Have hue-mans brought TRUTH down to a level that they can understand?
    yeah..we bring tings down to a level we understand..then when we have an understanding of more things we move up in overstanding and different dimensions/intricacies of Truth.

    Y'all folks too deep for me. Let me see what I can add here.

    1. What is it?

    Truth is a unity of facts

    2. How do we know when one has it?

    The man told me the truth will make you free so if it's not making you free it's not truth.

    3. DO good sounding words constitute truth?

    Bad counsel is 90% good. Also, truth is easier seen in an open lie than a twisted fact.

    4. Can it be found in a book?

    Not in it's entirety. Books can contain facts but a book only approaches truth to the extent that it shows the reader how to unify those facts. Even then it still only gives facts (about the facts) that don't become truth until the reader puts the book down and lives them. Like the man said if my words abide (live) in you you shall know the truth. So let me revisit the first question. Truth is unified facts as they are lived.

    5-6. Is truth Universal? Is one persons truth, anothers truth?

    You might think of truth as like a planet. There is just one planet made up of all the different locations that people see. My truth seems to be diferent from your truth because my location is different. The further beyond my location I can look the more facts I will be able to unify and the better I will understand the one big truth on which we all live.

    7. Have hue-mans brought TRUTH down to a level that they can understand?

    Not at all. They've gathered all the facts but have not unified them.

    Truth is not based on beliefs, as one does not beLIEve in truth. One knows truth because truth is based on knowledge. In short, truth is a manifestation of order. Falsehood is a manifestation of disorder.

    True enough. Disorder of the facts is falsehood. Lack of facts is ignorance. A unified order of facts is truth
