The Taste of Truth
The ocean has one taste, the taste of salt
Truth has one taste, the taste of liberation
There is not your truth and my truth. There are not variations of truth or shades of truth. There is truth. Truth is truth. There is nothing else. And, as Jesus promised, it will set us free.
We cannot speak truth to power because truth is power. The only power. Everything else is illusion. It makes no sense to fight about truth because you would be fighting against nothing. Fighting gives form to what is unreal.
We cannot speak truth to power also because truth cannot be spoken. It cannot be thought. It cannot be known in the way we usually think of knowing. It cannot be taught or learned. It cannot be searched for or found.
How can you find something that is never lost? How can you search for what is all around you, that is you? As the saying goes, that’s like a fish in the ocean looking for water.
So relax. Take a belly breath. Breathe in truth. Breathe out truth. Taste liberation. It’s delicious.
Nothing real can be threatened
Nothing unreal exists
Herein lies the peace of God
