Everyone is in pursuit of Truth.
The software engineer seeks the best way to make his programs work. The caring cook seeks the best way to prepare her meals. The aspiring teenager seeks a path to happiness. The empty-nester wonders, “What’s next?” after the children are gone. Athletes aspire to improve their game. The aging wonder, “Is there something more than this mortal existence?” Many ponder, “What’s the purpose of my life?” At the bottom of all seeking is a search for some type of truth. And the ultimate Truth of all things is God, Spirit!
For the human mind, seeking Truth may feel like taking a long road trip to a destination thousands of miles away. On the trip, there may be many stops, side trips and detours, and even wrong turns. A weary traveler might be tempted to think, “I’ve gone far enough!” and want to give up going further. But in the end the destination must be reached, for a feeling of completeness and success will not settle in until it is.
The same rule applies to the pursuit of Truth. The human mind often thinks it has found truth in a temporal human condition, such as financial success, a happy relationship, or a peaceful setting. But anything of a temporal nature, is well, temporal! It will come up short in the long run, and the quest begins anew. Pursuit of final Truth in Spirit will surpass all other pursuits.
God is the ultimate Truth! Matter is not. Mortal existence is not. Material conditions are not. God is here to be discovered, experienced and expressed now.
You don’t need to go on a “long road trip,” to find Truth. You don’t need to expend time and energy with fruitless stops, side trips and detours along the way. You can take a direct route to Truth. God is present to be experienced to the fullest! Seek and find.
