Care to share the "truth" you're referring to?
The truth must be as pure as a diamond.


In mineralogy, diamond (from the ancient Greek αδάμας – adámas "unbreakable") is an allotrope of carbon, where the carbon atoms are arranged in a variation of the face-centered cubic crystal structure called a diamond lattice.
Diamond is less stable than graphite, but the conversion rate from diamond to graphite is negligible at ambient conditions.
Diamond is renowned as a material with superlative physical qualities, most of which originate from the strong covalent bonding between its atoms. In particular, diamond has the highest hardness and thermal conductivity of any bulk material. Those properties determine the major industrial application of diamond in cutting and polishing tools and the scientific applications in diamond knives and diamond anvil cells.


en.wikipedia.org...


Diamond has remarkable optical characteristics. Because of its extremely rigid lattice, it can be contaminated by very few types of impurities, such as boron and nitrogen. Combined with wide transparency, this results in the clear, colorless appearance of most natural diamonds. Small amounts of defects or impurities (about one per million of lattice atoms) color diamond blue (boron), yellow (nitrogen), brown (lattice defects), green (radiation exposure), purple, pink, orange or red. Diamond also has relatively high optical dispersion (ability to disperse light of different colors), which results in its characteristic luster.

So no impurities for the Truth.

The truth is that the diamond sees all the refractions of light that it emits. The diamond is the seer and knower of the images it produces. The light that is emitted is a great place to play, it is the play of Leela or Maya. But it can get scary, turn around and head back home to the diamond and the play can be watched in peace.

The lie is the ignorance of the Truth.
Ignoring of the Truth is worse than a lie.


Ignoring (having knowledge of but turning away from) the Truth is worse than the lie....

Ignorance (bliss) of the Truth is the lie..

Ignorance of your true nature is Hell.
The truth shall set you free.

You are the truth and you are ignoring it if you are suffering. If you are only looking out into the world you will not beable to see what you are.
This exiled creature (that you are) is not a creature - it is the seer and knower of creatures. It sees the images and forgets about what is seeing the images.
The one 'seeing' is the truth.

The truth is hidden in plain sight.

What is truth?

"What is truth?" is a very simple question. Of course, answering it isn't so simple. We can offer definitions like "Truth is that which conforms to reality, fact, or actuality." But this basic definition is not complete because its definition is open to interpretation and a wide variety of applications. What is reality? What is fact? What is actuality? How does perception effect truth? We could offer answers for each of these questions, but then we could again ask similar questions of those answers.

Plato said that we can know truth if we 'sublimate our minds to their original purity'. Arcesilaus said that our understanding is not capable of knowing what truth is. Carneades stated that we can never comprehend truth; and not only that, but even our senses are inadequate in assisting us in the investigation of truth. Gorgias said, 'What is right but what we prove to be right? and what is truth but what we believe to be truth?'

I would like to say that truth exists outside of us, for all to see. Unfortunately, humans can be stubborn, and so the actual pinning down of what a truth is is more complicated. Society plays host to two types of truths; subjective truth and objective truth. Subjective truth is given to us through our individual experiences in relation to those around us: in short, it’s the truths we have been raised with. Objective truth is discovered by a search which is critical of our experiences until sufficient evidence has been gathered. The subjective truth is not always in opposition to the objective truth, but it does depend on the subject valuing their worldview more than others.

The truth is hidden in plain sight. The act of seeing is the truth - pure seeing - without the conceptual mind overlaying words.
Words are seen to be just appearances appearing, the seer of the appearance is the truth.

Nice OP, an interesting way of putting it.

I've often seen it connected in a similar way; Like the myth of dragons in the heart of man, a dragon which breathes fire (false words), but lies on the wealth of the world inside.

When the carbon we control changes to diamond, the dragon disappears.

Or at least, that's how I see it

That is true .... and "lies on the wealth of the world inside"

Is love not the ultimate form of truth? Is that truly not what we all yearn for? Is the journey not through the forest of lies en route to the castle of truth in order to meet with our true love? For when one feels eternal love (truth) does he need more? So what are lies but small islands in a grand sea of Truth (Love)?

Love then, I see as the conquerer of truth and lie, for in folly we profess both (using words) in our attempts to feel its warm embrace. Only Love (truth) in the clouded mind is never known in its true nature.
