    As soon as we get a little bit of it   ...  It causes us to get stupid.

      And to all them people out there that hasn't had a little bit of it yet ??

       WELL?     come back and talk to me after you have had just a little bit of truth to get you started.    Cause I'd like to hear about it!

      Truth is Beauty

      Be honest and do not harm is all the rule you need in life, Many other truths can be bias and ego driven for individual or group

      Do I detect a bit of bitterness/sour grapes here? 
      Jerami, truth can hurt, but it is something necessary to tell.

        You might be right.

          Sometimes when our mouth puckers someone needs to tell us caus we don't see it.
          I was reffering to somethink like a "Little bit of wisdom can be dangerous"
        Or something like that! 
           Sometimes i don't explain what I;m thinking as well as I thought I did.

      You're obviously referring to religious truths.

      What is this "truth"?

      Emile Rposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      What is truth, on a cosmic scale? How do you know you have it? How do you prove you have it? What do you do when your 'truth' is the opposite of someone else's? Do you then have two truths to discuss, or one lie and one truth?

      It's a pickle. You say having a little truth makes us act stupid.I would say thinking we possess a little truth makes us act stupid.

      Yet most of us deny the truth, and just accept make believe.

      "You can't handle the truth"

        That is probably truth concerning each and everyone of us; You included.

          Just maybe?  after we have attained the whole truth ... we are outta here.

        Leaving everyone else that hasn't attained it yet?

          No that isn't my phylosophy  just a brain cramp.

        I could not have said that any better. Ooh that is so true.

      I would disagree. People don't get or act stupid when they see or recognize truth. They are too happy at the time and at peace of mind when they do.
      I'm saddened by the extreme numbers that haven't recognized it.
      I am curious to know if you would recognize the difference? I'm not sure you have a high enough awareness to recognize it. From past conversations with you, I would say not. However, I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt.

      I will agree with your title though- Truth is an addiction. Every person seeks truth because it helps better understand their own life. However, if you're even a little aware, then you will recognize that there's too much distortion and misinformation flowing around. There are so many different philosophies about living life, it makes it difficult to sift through the distortion and misinformation.

      The simplest solution is to come to the self realization that truth only comes in one form and that's through Wisdom. Wisdom is recognized for what it is when seen. It needs no explanation.

      Wisdom is based on knowledge including experience once discerned. This is the aspect of your individual being where you will know something throughout every ounce of any doubt. Wisdom is never denied. Wisdom erases all doubt or certainty.

        There is nothing in your statement I would disagree with.
          I do not fully understand everything I was thinking at the moment that I made the OP.  I think I was think that we discover a little truth feeling that we have attained a place of greater understanding often caused us to behave a little bit stupid-er  than we think we do.
         
          and sometimes when we become addicted to one thing other important issues are neglected.
          But if complete wisdom were ever to be attained that would be a different matter.

    Some times truth can hurt, some times it can be avoided with out telling a lie.  I have heard people say that telling a white lie is ok, because it keeps you from hurting some one.  For instance, some one has gotten a new hair style. It's AWFUL! They ask you how you like it.  Do you have to hurt their feelings, or lie?  No.  Let your reply be a question.  Have you been to the beauty shop?

      I would ask them, are you having a bad hair day? Then recommend a better barber. Why walk around for weeks looking stupid, it's only hair.

    Very good poste EVERYONE.

       All I was saying is that once bitten by truth some of us just gotta have more, and some of us sit down and get lost in what little we have already gotten.  This isn't a good discription of what I was thinking (Yesterday)

       ATM ..You're obviously referring to religious truths.

       There Ya go some more.

       The truth is everywhere.  There is religious truth and non religious truth.
    and the same for untruth.

       Just because flys cover an orange doesn't mean the orange has become flies.
    Just because a bunch of lies has landed on our faith in god; doesn't mean God is a lie.

      Is religious truth the only truth? I see no qualifyer in the opening statement. Most people, though they say they want truth, soon discover that being honest with someone all the time is a relationship killer. "Yes, dear, your butt is WAY TOO BIG!!!" Just say that to your significant other. To those detractors of truth...you know who you are...Just because science comes up with a cool name for something, changing what the thing was originally called, doesn't mean they have done away with the "old" thing. Man on earth, since whatever it was that became "modern man" has always been called "man". If it began, as all things do, with the laying of the foundation, as a one celled creature, it was then called man, so each and every change which occured, not a name change. Microbial, swingin' in the trees, or running headlong down the track at the Olympic Games. Man. "Lucy", Cromagon or whathaveyou...we have been called man from the beginning. The original naming of this creature in the time of Moses was "Ish"...a rose by any other name.

          So you did mean only religious truth. There is no truth in religion...from the pope to the evangelist, they are in it for the money.

          1. Jerami profile image76
            Jeramiposted 4 years ago in reply to this

            No  Didn't say that.  Religion can not contain truth though it may hold onto just a little bit of it just like the rest of us.

    One thing about getting truth is that once you get it, you can be driven to craziness. King Solomon said that the more knowledge you get, the more grief comes along with it. If you learn about the chaos in the world, it can make things more disturbing.

      Absolutely correct Courtney.  And all too often when we have had a taste of it, we think we are on top of it.
        the quest for total truth is like chasing a never ending spiral.

        As King Solomon said ..  ALL is vanity.
       
        But if we find pleasure chasing the end of the rainbow .. let it be so.
      This, like everything else is an experience. And to each their own.

        I am a truth warrior yet not the killing kind like in religious wars OR other unkind excuses.

        The most Incomprehensible thing about the World and Universe, is that it is Comprehensible

          Jeramiposted 4 years ago in reply to this

          Yep!  It is Comprehensible; but there is too much for one brain to hold.
          unless we break it down to it's simplest form and even then; new avenues for thought just keep on a coming over the horizon.

            kinda like tomorrows dirty dishes.

              Yes we gotta get them bad news leaves and all them other excuses and alabies leaves off the branch first or we ain't ever going to see what the limb really looks like.
