"Truth Nothing is absolutely true, really real. The waking experience is
as unreal as the dream experience. When you are in deep sleep, there is no
world at all. When you attain the supraconscious fourth stage, the "I"
alone remains the universal "I" which was mistaken even in the sleeping
stage as limited and particular Truth is more fundamental than the atom.
Every atom and every star manifests the truth to those who have the eyes
of wisdom. Man's supremacy lies in his capacity to become aware of this
The chief duty of man is investigation into truth. Truth can be won only
through dedication and devotion, and they are dependent on the grace of
God, which is showered on hearts saturated with love.
Speak the truth, but speak pleasantly. Simply because a statement will be
welcome to the hearer, don't speak it out to win his approval; if speaking
truth will cause grief or pain, keep silent. That is the vow of truth in
ordinary daily life. Don't have hypocrisy or crookedness in your speech.
Both unpleasant truth and pleasant untruth have to be avoided.
Have faith that truth will save you in the long run. Stick to it
regardless of what might befall.
There is in everyone a spark of truth; no one can live without that spark.
There is in everyone a flame of love; life becomes a dark void without it.
That spark, that flame is God, for he is the source of all truth and all
love. Man seeks truth. He seeks to know the reality because his very
nature is derived from God, who is truth. He seeks love, to give it and
share it, for his nature is of God and God is love.
The experience of truth alone can foster love, for truth is so
all-embracing and integrating that it sees no distinction. Truth is the
current and love is the bulb it has to illumine. Through truth, you can
experience love; through love, you can visualize truth.
