Giving the Infinite Definition: Truth

So then, let’s look at TRUTH.

How to say this? But even illusion is illusion. The manifest behind illusion is just more illusion. The self that senses the illusion behind illusion is illusion as well.

To paraphrase the 1992 Clinton campaign, it’s all about the unmanifest, idiot.

When the wise man points at the moon, the idiot looks at the finger. There really are no words to describe the truth. There are only pointers. Metaphors. Stories. Parables. Koans.

The truth is the unmanifest. And when the self realizes the truth, it knows that it’s not the self, but it’s the Self.

There are many words used to name the unmanifest: God is one. Self is another. I’ve been using Quantum Spirit (although confusing it sometimes with Quantum Energy, but I’ll try to avoid that error of definition in the future).

So to quote Edith Ann, “And that’s the truth.”
