Hi @Nikulas ... Does truth exist? many years ago I asked the question here on Inward Quest "How many truths are there: 7 billion or zero? you may find it useful :)

(02 Mar '21, 02:07) jaz

Hi @Nikulas this definition of truth definitely resonates with me ... 'the reason things are true is because someone thought about them long enough that they trained them into their manifestation till it manifested ... that's all truth is, truth that you call evidence, all it is, is somebody maintaining a vibration until there is a manifestation around it Abraham Hicks'

(01 May '21, 04:23) jaz

..."and I've been told (read) that truth " is something that does not harm. It also has to be true for all.

truth is what you belive in. what you belive in is your truth.

every person has different set of belife therefore different truth.

we all live in the same univers so we influence each others belifs systems whether we want to or not, so some beliefs are meutual to all people/cultures/gruops/families, coupls...

truth is overrated. you can wake up tommorow and decide to change your beliefs and be a different person. but it is equally important for the same reason.

if something happened in your reality then its already happened in an action way. why did it happen? that is open for interpretation to creat a good story. how your going to handle this? also open. depends on your truth.

I think we often confuse beliefs with truths.

(02 Jul, 11:50) ele

I started asking a similar question over 40 yrs ago after developing an affinity for the "truth seeker" characters I'd read about in fantasy and science fiction novels. My personal search for truth began like everyone else with the idea that truth could likely be found by sifting through the multitudinous beliefs found in religious and philosophical texts. That was a mistake, a rabbit hole leading to an infinite maze containing far more questions than answers. If there was any revelation to be gleaned from this massive waste of time, it was the realization that Truth (the universal variety) and beliefs are not to be conflated with one another. A belief is a created idea and its continued existence is dependent on the believer or believers. Truth, on the other hand, doesn't give a shit whether we believe it or not. Truth is what it is, what it always has been, what it always will be. If you want to find "the truth", try going back before human beings first walked the earth, before the first beliefs were created. If it wasn't truth then, it isn't truth now. I understand that this is a simplistic answer to your question. At some point, if there is an interest, I could delve deeper into the subject of belief and its relation to truth.

Truth is what I feel. As a child on earth, that my literal soul decided would be a thing to do, to imagine, to pop out from itself as easy as the cartoons we have all drawn.... As a child, I felt energy beings around me. They touched me. I felt their hands. I heard someone loudly speaking to me in my head. I heard someone speak to me from across the room. Once I was looking out the front door at the super hot day it was. I wished for a cooler day. Then I looked around to the living room and there was a window hanging in the air with raindrops dripping within it. Then this window disappeared. Once I felt my body speed up real fast, like it was going to take off. But I willed it to stop. I wish I had never stopped it. Once a voice in my head told me to go talk to a man walking down the street. I thought no. Then this voice said "GO TALK TO THAT MAN", so I did. He had the book LIVING THE INFINTE WAY by Joel Goldsmith in his apartment. I immediately saw it and wanted to read it. He gave it to me. I was attracted to Seth books. I picked up the book HEALERS AND THE HEALING PROCESS by Meek. I was only interested in the part where the energy beings speaking from another dimension spoke. I read the book PSYCHIC HEALERS by St. Clair. There was a story in this book about a Korean priest. He had stepped on a wooden stake out in the jungle. A war time wooden stake meant to hurt. This priest took out this stake from his foot and leg and then leaned over with 2 fingers and touched just above the wound. The person with this priest saw this huge wound heal up in around 2 minutes. Wow. I get goosebumps again just thinking about this. I wanted to heal myself that fast. So I practiced. I told myself that I was perfect, a perfect set of patterns of light that COULD heal myself with my own thoughts. The healing of myself became faster and faster until it was immediate. Once my 5 year old son had his ear screamed at by another little boy. My son could not stop crying, so this church day care called me to pick him up. I wished/prayed/imagined that his pain go away. Within a few minutes I felt a small bit of energy leave my abdomen and then go his way. This is when his pain stopped. I have felt energy beings fly through me and walk into me and then say something. I would love to be flying with them full time now. These words also answer the question: are there aliens and where are they? This is truth to me.

Now I know what you were referring too.

(05 Feb, 18:05) ele

I define "truth" as something pure. I define "pure" as something that is just in the way it is, and it is only in that way.

As such, in my experience and strict philosophical research, there is only one truth. And that is that "I exist". Everything else in this world, or in your dreams, you can doubt. Everything.

For, how can we ever be sure that that what we see or feel is that some thing in it's purest essence? Or that it is even really there in the first place?

On the other hand, you can never doubt your own existence. For, if you were to doubt it, it would just be a confirmation that you actually truly exist. Because, if you were not to exist, how could you have had doubted your existence in the first place?

Notice that in acknowledging your existence you are just acknowledging just that. That you exist. You can never even know what is that "you" that exists.

You can just know that you exist. The only truth.

Hmmm...So if a woman kills a man, and you witness it, and someone were to say "explain the truth of what you saw." Is that up to interpretation?

(28 Feb '21, 05:42) Nikulas

[I ABANDON THIS ANSWER/OPINION]

Ah, so you're more interested in the "everyday" truth (taking the existence of the external world and things in it and the way it functions, in general, as granted)? I misinterpreted your question.

In that case, if you were the only person to see it, with the assumption that you have good hearing and sight, and you are really saying only what you saw, without additional analysis, you would be telling the truth. I would say.

Bless you Marin. "With the assumption that you have good hearing and sight". I ask, who decides the assumption is accurate? Me? Or an authority figure or culture?

Good, honest, pure men and women whom have psychosis and styles of schizophrenia believe they are accurate all the time.

Psychopathic folk are of the notion only their truth exists, and nothing to contrary.

Marin, please, I am not being argumentative. This is a post that will be read by many, so I place my opinion under thus.

(01 Mar '21, 00:25) Nikulas

After some thinking, I actually think this is too complex a subject to be satisfactorily analyzed here on the forum. There is just too much stuff that needs to be taken into account and addressed. I mean, hundreds of books and articles were written on the subject of truth and knowing. I recommend exploring the philosophical field of epistemology, if you are that interested. Good luck.

(01 Mar '21, 10:53) Marin

Anyone reading my second answer to this question (this one, which was actually a mistake. I wanted to write it as a comment under my first answer) - I abandon it. Please, disregard it, for it is too simplistic, and in some regards even wrong.

I stand by my first answer, though. That is my position on truth, in it's purest form. Anything else, I am not fit to answer at this point, for I think it would require substantial analysis for it to be at all serious.

My experience with "truth" is that its primary purpose is as a handhold in the construct of living this life.

Or if you will "truth" gives you something to hold on to, to believe in and sometimes to live or die for.

It's primary value is to the person that believes in that "truth", ... pure entertainment for the rest of us.

What is truth?

A difficult question; but I have solved it for myself by saying that it is what "the voice within" tells you.
