Interesting. From what you quoted me to this~ is literally one in the same.
"The sum of man’s desires is referred to as his heart. Since the nature with which we are born is absolute egoism, man does not feel the spiritual
point in his heart. However, at some point in one of his reincarnations, man begins to gradually strive towards attainment of the causes of life, its
evaluation; he yearns to attain himself, his source, just as you do right now. Man’s aspiration to the Creator is precisely this aspiration to
attain his origin. Man’s discontent in life often helps him in this search, when there’s nothing that appeals to him in his surroundings. Such
circumstances are sent from Above in order for man to start feeling an empty point in his heart, and to stimulate in him the desire to fulfill it."
Not missing the show that is ones life is summed up yet condrumbled through that text.
To live a life and experiance that life, and into the next to one day reach the higher self, which is "who know's what" a truth that not all
believe in is a truth in itself.
I've contemplated why this world operates the way it does. It's an enigma as the countless docterines, laws, principles, morales, values, states of
life life are plentiful and sometimes not. There is not just 1 truth in this world but countless. You can but it's more logical to look at all
docterine and truths as the amounts are immense and collectively look at what truth(s) and what compelles you as a individual concious mind in the
this progression of life you currently reside.
I've never been able to base my "personal truth(s)" off a single book, I personally had to break that mold to look at all before I started seeing
that it's not what "book" one holds true but the truths that are stated throught "all books". The stories are the same, as well as the messages.
It's all trivial to the truth one holds and irrelavent to anyone elses.
Yet, I think you don't just hold true to one book as why else would you post this in "Philosophy and Metaphysics". There's more to this post than
your putting out.
Where are your truths at, I am not one to judge, I'd rather observe and lately I haven't been contributing as much because it's reckognizalbe on
ATS that Personal Truths get attacked as illogical especially in reagards to ones ideologies.
If you don't want to answer via forum, I would love to talk more U2U as it's more personable w/o the ruckus of "passive aggressive" threaders.
Best regards and Many Blessings~
