how to find out the truth about us?

The Truth.....
Human being is divided into religions and sects. when a child is born in a community he takes the religion and persuade it. most of them get convinced that their creed is truth and not only they follow it but they protect it, they spread it and die for it.

a group of people are as certain about their rebirth as Muslims or Christians or Jews are certain about the Day of Judgement. every creed promises to provide salvation and mental peace.

all the scholars, priests and philosophers claim to be true. BUT everyone needs that his people must be agreed with him.

truth is like Gold. there is a group of people who devote themselves and meditate on something that they have been taught its Gold, they hardly try to know that the thing is actually gold or not?

a philosopher keep of discussing the method of knowing Gold, without actually touching or knowing the claimed Gold is Gold or not. theologians are busy in protecting the claimed gold in order to malign it with other metals or mix it with other metals.

while i think, there is only one truth, only one thought and only one will.... that is sprouting the rests of the waves in the ocean. i think either truth is as much apparent as the surface of Ocean, right in front of eyes... or mixed in the waves of thoughts, theories and philosophies, one has to jump into ocean and search in the water,....or its deep inside ocean...one has to reach to the core of ocean to know it.

Truth is not that we are 'convinced' by others...truth is what we realize. realization is not going to happen until and unless there is space in mind. i dont want to stirr the faith of devotees, they have found the remedies for their thirst....but for the people who have left blind belief...once left the blind belief its impossible to return to it.

so the where is the ocean...its in ourselves,, we would find truth in ourselves only. think upon you, contemplate upon you and truth would be revealed!

    Apr 30 2012: That was a pleasure to read your writing with very touching music on the background.
    'I think either truth is as much apparent as the surface of Ocean, right in front of eyes... ' - but 'Fish is the last to discover water'.
    I am not sure about that one truth. Even though the overall truth would be able to exist, it would probably disappear, like - if everyone/thing would be equally beautiful/ugly, no one would be beautiful/ugly, in fact, no perception of this measure would exist.
