Truth Is

Truth is only discovered in the moment.
There is no truth that can be carried over
to the next moment, the next day, the next year.
Memory never contains truth, only what is past, dead, gone.


Truth comes into the non-seeking mind fresh and alive.
It is not something you can carry with you, accumulate, or hold onto.


Truth leaps into view when the mind is quiet, not asserting itself.
You cannot contain or domesticate truth, for if you do, it dies instantly.


Truth prowls the unknown waiting for a gap in the mindís activity.
When that gap is there, the truth leaps out of the unknown into the known.


Instantly you comprehend it and sense its sacredness.
The timeless has broken through like a flash of lightning
and illuminated the moment with its presence.


Truth comes to an innocent mind as a blessing and a sacrament.
Truth is a holy thing because it liberates thought from itself
and illumines the human heart from the inside out.
