What is the Truth ?

Whats is the truth of life? Why are you here ? Why is there only life on earth as we know? What is your purpose of life ?

What is "real"? How do you define "real"? If you say what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then "real" is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain"

Whatever you have read or have known about what is the truth or reality is only a creation of the human imagination of what the truth might be. In reality no one knows what the truth is. No philosophy or fact in this world can tell you what the truth is.

However some people who claim they know the truth, cannot explain the same to you. Because truth is something like love. It can be felt but cannot be explained to anyone or shown to anyone.

You need to make an effort by yourself to understand the truth, people can only show you a path, you have to walk that path yourself to truly understand the truth.

In a sense its the stillness of the mind, the kind of stillness which comes naturally and not forced on the mind by any means of meditation. Once you achieve that stillness, you will feel the truth.

Dear Karan, It was good to see your post on 'What is truth?'

"You need to make an effort by yourself to understand the truth, people can only show you a path, you have to walk that path yourself to truly understand the truth."

I agree with the above statement that every one need to make an effort by him/herself to know truth.

But as per..
"..In reality no one knows what the truth is. No philosophy or fact in this world can tell you what the truth is."

When you say that.. aren't you 'assuming' that you 'know everything' there is know in this world.. what if you haven't 'encountered' the truth yet?

Here's a post from my blog that I felt you might like to see..

i would say that truth is relative and that every body chooses his own reality
