The Echo of Truth
A fundamental truth not only demands courage to be revealed, it usually also lies beyond the basics we have accepted as true. Shoseki said: "Truth only reveals itself when one gives up all preconceived ideas." Or like Simone de Beauvoir put it: "I tore myself away from the safe comfort of certainties through my love for truth -- and truth rewarded me."
In regard to Self- and God-Realization, Paul Twitchell, wrote in The Far Country: "There is one fundamental perception, indispensable to man for gaining wisdom in the many ways of the divine self and that is to see the Sugmad (God) in His essential self and the Truth, unaltered by forms and phenomena."
Someone asked, How does truth speak to us? I said, through a mirroring echo. The true test of character shows when a person is believed to be in possession of truth, if such a thing is possible in absence of error.
