What Is Truth?
By Harold Klemp
Those of you who have moved through several different levels of spiritual consciousness have found that your life can get rough at times. Why? Not because somebody in the dark alley is shooting arrows at you. It’s because you’re meeting yourself. And this is truth. Truth means meeting yourself.
It’s one of the paradoxes of truth. So many people claim to have truth. So many people claim to know it. But they can’t agree with each other about what truth is. And they’re ready to fight to the death to have their view of truth prevail.
This is wrong. Because if you have truth, you realize that another person has truth too, at his or her own level. There’s no reason to fight about it.
As sure as you’re alive, if you can make it over the next hurdle, through the next stormy sea, your view of life will change. And so will your viewpoint on truth. Why? Because the experience made you wiser. You will have a broader view of truth.
This is why we in ECK don’t go looking for trouble. We don’t say, “I want troubles so that I shall become wiser and more spiritual.” No. If you’re wise and if you’re spiritual, you’ll do everything possible to live a smooth, calm, peaceful life.
Because it’s more harmonious. That’s our goal.
But in ECK, we find that when we move into a higher state of consciousness, things do get rough for a while. We work off our limited states of consciousness so that we can live and move in greater states. And the greater states of consciousness mean more freedom to live, move, and do as we wish.
