The Nature of Truth

What is the ultimate Truth that all human beings seek? The mind is only satisfied with a Truth that never fluctuates or creases to be valid. Truth is that which is eternal, consistent, self-evident and absolute. It cannot change its nature or it would not be Truth. For example, the true quality or property of fire is that it burns. Fire cannot cease top burn without creasing to be fire. 

What then is the true quality or property of the human being? It is not our possessions which are transient. It is not our titles, which similarly pass away through time, nor our bodies which are born and die, or our minds that are constantly changing. Nor is it our various national, racial, sexual or religious identities, which are similarly limited within the field of time and shift according to circumstances. Our true nature resides in our awareness of Truth, our consciousness of the Eternal and the Infinite as the fact of existence.

That alone in us has the power to go beyond death and the power to overcome the forces of division and destruction that abound in this transient world. Only what has no form, what transcends materiality and circumstances, can be ultimately real or true. Yet what has no form is not any mere emptiness or vacuum but the immaterial nature of consciousness itself.
