Truth Seeker

What does it mean to me to be a Truth Seeker…hummm. That’s the question I’ve been pondering for quite some time now.
What truth am I looking for? How do I unearth the truth? How do I speak the truth? When do I speak the truth? Does it matter who listens to the truth…my truth? So many more questions spring up when I think I have figured out one question. These are some of the questions that have & am currently working my way through this seemingly endless list.

What I have figured out is that my truth may not be your truth…and your truth may not be someone else’s truth.

So… here’s my 2 cents on truth seeker & truth quotes.

Quotes taken from a great site: http://www.quotegarden.com/

4. Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized. In the first, it is ridiculed, in the second it is opposed, in the third it is regarded as self-evident. ~Arthur Schopenhauer

5. We do not err because truth is difficult to see. It is visible at a glance. We err because this is more comfortable.

10. Truth only reveals itself when one gives up all preconceived ideas. ~Shoseki

11. Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold. ~Leo Tolstoy

12. If you cannot find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it? ~Dogen

13. It is a terrible thing for a man to find out suddenly that all his life he has been speaking nothing but the truth.
~Oscar Wilde

14. There is no Truth. There is only the truth within each moment. ~Ramana Maharshi, attributed

Until next time… Make each day count!

Be Truth Seeking,
