"Truth" is an illusive thing. Not everyone can see it. Even those who have the capacity to see it are often blinded by preset opinions. Below is
my method of witnessing "Truth".
1. First, you need to come to terms with the fact that you know nothing about whatever subject you are evaluating. Consider everything you know to
be false, and dismiss it completely. You must start with a CLEAN SLATE. This is the hardest part, because the human mind struggles so hard to define
things in ways that it is familiar with. It might be necessary to do some meditating to clear your mind.
2. Seek any and all information you can get. look at EVERYTHING. this goes beyond looking at both sides of a subject. You must look at all parts
of all sides. When you decide to look at something from one side, you cast it into a "light", when you look at it from another side, the light
changes colour. When you just look at the way an object looks under different lights, you don't get as clear an understanding of it as you would if
you held it, felt it, examined every part of it.
3. Your mind is not entirely useless. Logic and common sense, along with a sense of probability will play into your conclusion. These are largely
inaccurate for most people, because they can easily be manipulated to whatever outcome they "want". They can be very useful, however, if you are
able to "stop wanting" a conclusion and start looking at things more objectively. KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.
4. "Truth" will not be as clear and black and white as you want it to be. You will have a very difficult time explaining what the truth of
something is. This is more for your own understanding than for expressing to someone else. "Truth" is, after all, a lie as soon as its voiced.
When you tell a person what the truth is, it becomes an opinion that hinders them from finding "Truth" for themselves. I know it sounds complicated
and strange, but it really isn't.
