Truth is on the other shore of the river, how do we reach it? To realize the truth, you must see every single thought that arises in your mind for what it is. Our thoughts are not the truth; instead, they are convenient definitions. Unfortunately, we go through life with the assumption that our thoughts are true. Remember, however, that the truth will always be just as it is. The truth will not conform to your definitions. Thus, the truth is like a flower hiding in the grass at your feet. Will the flower disappear simply because you have not defined it?
