    Does anything really matter except the truth?

    The Truth for many is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Other than being aware and believing in This Truth would be believing in this truth and sharing it with others so that they can experience eternal life.

      great answer. I would add that sharing the truth of the Gospel would give others the possibility of experiencing eternal life if they believe it.

      And Yeshua told us that the first law is love. Yet, so many lead with ego (the false self of separateness).

    truth definitely matters. truth, or what one believes to be truth dictates how we live our lives. unfortunately we live in a culture where "your truth is good for you and another persons truth is good for them".  in a sense meaning there is no absolute truth, but that all truth is relative. of course these same people are the first to call you ignorant the second you disagree with their so called "relative truth".

    I think first we have to realize that the old saying, Truth Hurts, is very true.
    The truth forces each of us to look at ourselves as fallible, that in itself, can hurt.
    The next thing we have to realize, is that people who tell us the truth, really love us enough to be honest with us. We have to choose how we accept that kind of love.
    Jesus is our prime example of truthfulness, He never beat around the bush, just to make people feel better. Take it or leave it, Jesus was and is truth.
    The thing that hurts the most about truth, is that it forces us to look in the mirror of our life, and make an honest assessment about ourselves. This is the most hurting aspect of truth, the self-assessment. Where we go after this assessment, depends on us.
    Jesus dealt in truth as the best policy, as Christians, this world would be a lot different if we dealt in truth, instead of what we think people want to hear.

    Seen from the standpoint that Truth is the Ultimate Reality, then everything matters. The play (Lila) is part and parcel of God's plan. If you like, the Universe is God's body and even so called Maya (illusion) is real. Nothing comes from an empty void.

    In Truth, Truth alone is Real, but before one recognises or realises this Truth, all else is part and parcel of the plan and also real.

    I guess the word 'matter' is the problem. In so far as all is impermanent, all will eventually go. So the trick is not to be attached, to see things as passing shadows. Still, this too does not come like that, it has to be learnt through dispassion or detachment. . Much peace.

    Truth is spirit. Truth is love.

    Everything else is illusion.

    No, nothing else matters.
