What is Truth

What is truth?  

Is truth simply the opposite of a lie?  I don’t think so.  

I am not writing on the topic of truth to expound on how telling a truth versus telling a lie.  I think that would only cause us to go round and round with reaching the heart of the matter.  My goal is to delve deeper and address the differences between subjective and objective truth.  I have reached the conclusion that truth tends to be more subjective rather than objective, especially regarding the topics of God or religious belief, humanity, and the origin of all that exists.

Belief and Faith Propel Us Toward Success

I am currently reading the book The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce.  Harold is a retired man whose life and marriage are lifeless.  On the day he receives a letter from an old friend who is dying of cancer, Harold finds himself unintentionally deciding to walk over 500 miles to visit her and give his regards in person.  He embarks on this journey unprepared in every way and without any necessary supplies.  As Harold walks miles and miles, he encounters all sorts of different people, and these encounters bring about a change in Harold’s character, beliefs, and ideas.

This is You. Be Yourself!

Each one of us is as unique as the snowflakes that fall from the sky.

Each one of us is as distinctive as the fingerprints at the end of each finger on our hands.

As each snowflake unites with millions of others to become the beautiful sight we call snow, each one of us is a complement to all of humanity.
