True or False?

True or False?

The truth will set you free.
But first it will piss you off.
~ Gloria Steinem

What is truth?

What is the measurement and evidence procedure that allows you to decide?

If you’re astute, you realize that the things you believe to be truth are only what you’ve been conditioned to believe.

Every truth is half false.
~ Hermetic Axiom

How frequently have you started from ground zero, done your research, applied what you’ve learned, and finally come up with your own unique position?

If you’re like most, next to never.

How frequently, if ever, have you started from ground zero,
done your own research, applied what you’ve researched,
gotten personal experience, and finally come up with your
own unique truth? If like most, never!

According to behavioral sciences, by the time you’re thirteen, your core level values, beliefs and assumptions have locked in; and they rarely if ever change for the remainder of your life.

Most of these core drivers are completely out of your conscious awareness; and psychology tells us that these unconscious drivers literally cause 95% of what you do and don’t do every single day.

According to the Hindu tradition, “The greatest sin is ignorance.’ (Avidya in the Sanskrit)

I’ve long been a student of language, so let’s diagnose the word ignorance with the prefix “ignore” and the suffix “ance”.

An ignorance is to ignore fundamental aspects of a situation or circumstance. With this understanding, aren’t we all ignorant in some area?



How many times have you taken a position on a particular issue: social, political, economic, and then shifted that position once taken?

Again, if like most this has happened slim to never.

How many times have you questioned your religious upbringing and beliefs?

How many times have you questioned your political position?

How many times have you questioned your values?

Your legal system?

You see most are not on a quest for truth. Most have decided “truth” long ago and spend the rest of their days proving themselves right.

How many times have you questioned your religious upbringing and affiliation?
How many times have you questioned your political position?
How many times have you questioned your values? Your legal system?
Most have decided “truth” long ago and then spend the rest of
their lives proving themselves right.

This is the supreme ignorance.

Sometimes you’ve been so heavily conditioned in a lie,
that truth itself knocks at your door and you turn it away?

Our political and legal systems claim to be on a “quest for the truth.” Yet experience proves they’re literally on a quest for political and economic gain.

While the media claims to be “bi-partisan”, when was the last time you saw a news outlet uphold a contrary opinion?

Contrarily, when was the last time you observed your favorite news outlet or political figure completely ignore or gloss over an issue that didn’t serve their agenda?

Before you throw rocks at the media or politicians, ask yourself, “How often do I do the same thing?”

Ask yourself, “If it’s so appalling, why do I/we put up with it? Why did we put that person in office? Why do we watch the media?

It’s not your fault. But it is your responsibility.

Read Here: Taking Absolute Responsibility is the fundamental quality of true leadership.

To ask the right question is far more important than to receive the answer.
The solution of a problem lies in the understanding of the problem;
the answer is not outside the problem, it is in the problem.
~ Jiddu Krishamurti

Only when your questions become more important than the answers will the true answers emerge.
