Truth lies within and nobody knows the truth until it's too late. It's the only way to learn and to grow in knowledge. To think you know it all is to be ignorant enough to believe yourself. I found out that life isn't a bowl of cherries and that it can be challenging, hateful, inspiring, loving and deceiving at any time. It's only up to you and you alone to make your decision that will forever make you, you.

So that's the truth? Thanks for spoiling the movie.

The biggest truth I've found in my life, that we have become too dependent on what others tell us to believe.

I have found that war is inevitable, death is imminent and that people are always going to kill one another. People can bitch and moan about war and death all they want but it is human nature and will always be there. I have also found that religion is a lie and although there most likely is some sort of supreme being, it does not care about our issues and problems enough to step in and do anything, nor should it.

The biggest truth(s)?

God does not exist – people that believe in god are more close minded then people that don’t believe god

Religion will die out in the next 50-100 years

Cigarettes should be banned

There’s nothing wrong with porn

If people actually cared for one another the world we live in would be a utopia

Disclosure won’t happen for another few hundred years

It’s actually impossible to be racist because we are but one race

Don’t laugh at ignorant people because at one stage in your life you were just as ignorant

Chocolate is so damn good......

Everyone is scared of death

The meaning of life is different for everyone and is what you make it

The truth I have faced in my personal LIFE is that, I am the truth and I have the lies for it. I am as an individual I only have me in my inner mind. I have a family, and of course I love my family. But when we get close to our heart, even our family members are like dessert green, the more we get closer it disappears eventually. I am not selfish by saying this and I am not making cracks in family relations. But, even our mother is a separate individual, then how our father, friends, brother/sister or wife can understand us as we understand us, how can they accept us as we accept us, Or even how can they obey or find truths from us as they get from their on mind. Every people is selfish as "I"(as the thought of I am the truth), even if 98% of them does't exhibit it. Because, no can accept a universal truth that is accepted by 99.9% of the world's population, if it is not agreeable to their inner mind.

-Appearance is the easiest and safest way to control people without them caring or knowing.
-True "respect" is rare and VERY hard to get and easy to lose.
-True confidence is rare and VERY hard to get and easy to lose.
-A lot of fortune and misfortune is based purely on luck.
-Talent trumps work ethic alone. Talent with work ethic trumps damn near anything.
-People hate change even when its infinitely better.
-People live by inertia.
-People can be trained like any other animal. (corporate controlled media parrots a narrative and people are trained to parrot the scripted narrative. Pentagon/DHS/UN propaganda can predictive program people to respond to a future planned event in a specified way. Zombie movies and post-dollar crash starving people, domestic terrorist security apparatus and soviet control grid, hunger games and post-crash starvation, boston bombing/katrina and martial law, FS glitch to simulate a system crash,TSA/checkpoints aka 1930's german national socialist checkpoints and document checks)
-People react like pack animals when stressed or threatened.
-People are very territorial. My Oil. Mine! Its my coltran mineral rights..Mine! My Lithium ore! My opium fields!
-People want to be on the winning team
-Unconscious role play is a common in society.
-Anyone can be wrong. Anyone can be right.
-Context is important.
-You have to take advantage of the resources available to you,even if its not fun,convenient or popular.
-The taste of the food you eat is only important for the brief time it is in your mouth. So eat tasty food slower. Drink good coffee slower.
-Eat to not feel hungry not to be full.
-Everyone wants to have a better future.
-The most painful experiences come from people/things that are close to you.
-The richer you are the more people notice your virtues and talents.
-The poorer you are the more people notice your flaws and shortcomings.
-People are programmed to commercialize everything including other people.
-Arrogant people are assumed to be confidence if they can talk smoothly and clearly while having an attractive appearance.
-No one cares if your a evil person so long as you entertaining,talented or funny.
-Using people is an easy way to climb to the top in any hierarchy.
-People hate admitting their wrong. Why? Ego, social competition and status among the group. Can't afford to look weak or defective or you'll get labeled and be obsoleted.
-Life is short.
-Few people care who you are.
-History is very much censored.
-Trust almost nothing unless you physically can verify it.

Most people don't really want the truth; they'd much rather have their personal perception of reality reinforced.


So true.

I see this often.

I'm only 23, so in many years to come I'll probably have to revise this post, but these are the biggest truths I've learned so far.

1. Money != Happiness. I work enough to pay my bills, with a little leftover. My friends making more money? Definitely not as happy about their work that I am.

2. You don't need fancy things to be happy - All of my stuff is used, and older. Why waste $500 on a brand-new TV when you'll only be wanting to upgrade later on? Same with computers - My Core Duo Vista laptop was able to play Fallout New Vegas with only a slight lag time - so why would I want to upgrade to an I7 processor now, when if I wait a couple years that tech will be on the used market for far cheaper.

3. You cannot change people, so don't try - they will stay in that mode of thinking until they themselves pull themselves out of it. You can encourage the change though.

4. Everything is connected - Imagine that every bad thing that happened to you had a purpose; maybe you were supposed to be late to work, to remind yourself to get up earlier next time. Maybe you needed to be late to avoid an accident that would have happened to you.

5. Even when we think we are alone, we really aren't.

6. Taking a deep breath and swallowing your pride is better than flicking someone else off (especially when the roads are horrible and they are on your bumper and laying on the horn....err, not that I would flick them off

7. Life's too short to remain in the past - stop thinking about that girl/guy you used to have a crush on, why that bully used to pick on you, why you didn't go to school for music instead of biology. Remember the past, live in the present, and acknowledge the future.

I've also learned that you can count on no one, but I still make sure people can count on me.

If someone asked you after your many years of research, what is the biggest truth you personally have found in life?

So what is it, and try to explain a little.

I learned that no matter what we say and believe, somebody always has to be treated as the bottom of humanity. In America we once treated black people this way and you would think that as we grew older as a nation that black people above all the rest would understand what it was like to be treated this way. You would think that they would be the last people to treat others as they were once treated. I was in Korea and I stopped at a business where this nice old man made really nice suits. I had bought one from him, a three piece for $100 made out of beautiful material and the guy even threw in two dress shirts and a tie for free. I really liked the guy and I was standing outside his shop looking in the window to see what he was working on and two black guys went in. They started giving the guy a bunch of # and demanding the guy give them better deals than he had been giving others. They called him all kind of racist and derogatory names and were flashing a bunch of cash to let him know they were customers with a lot of money and therefore deserved to be treated better than others. I couldn't help but think that they wouldn't get away with that behavior in the U.S. and they believed that since they were Americans with money, they were better than the Koreans who were poor. It was then I realized that we as a people haven't grown as much as we should have at this point. We will always distinguish ourselves as being better than somebody else and if it's not because of our race, or national origin, than it will be because of money. Sad, but true.

2. A mistake is a failure if you didn't learn from it.

3. Need to be happy with yourself if not change it.

7. Children would make the best and worst rulers of the world.

1. Always keep a set of equipment and clothing for inspection, and hide the stuff you really use.

2. Tabasco sauce can make nearly anything edible

3. It's not fear, it's apprehension.

4. If I get hungry enough, I'll eat nearly anything. Excepting maybe peaches.

5. Pain hurts. So avoid it by making the other guy have the pain instead.

6. If you find yourself going around and around in the dark, it's probably time to do a cut-away.

7. Change all three O2 sensors on the rebreather.

8. Don't stomp on burning C4 if you like your toes.

9. If you're going to be up the mast, don't trust that a red tag will stop someone from using the transmitter. Remove something to keep it from going on line.

10. Raccoons like tuna.

11. Never float your own horse's teeth.

12. If you're getting conflicting readings from the instrumentation, don't assume the reading you like is the right one.

13. It's never aliens.

14. Travel light; freeze at night

15. When in doubt, stop, look, listen, smell
