Re: Universal Concepts?
[QUOTE]In having a go at the two subjects opened by Kursad I've been thinking about the concept of universal truth and I'm not sure if there is such a thing,at least for us mere mortals...  
 
...But maybe the entity that has lived all lives does understand the universality of my truth...but we as individuals can still only see the conceptual nature of our similarities.[/QUOTE]Then, perhaps by definition, a universal truth would bridge the gap between us as individuals and each other, the universe, consciousness, life itself--that which defines us as more than mere mortals. We should keep in mind the difference between mythology and truth. Mythology is the symbolic language and stories and characters specific to a person's culture and individual experience. Truth is the transcendent experience of the individual in union with their own divinity. Truth, in that sense, is subjective. But if the experience is of of divinity, then it is universal. Your own divinity is deeply personal to you. But paradoxically my divinity is exactly the same as your divinity. We are all one, and God is all in all. This is universal truth; yet it is not comprehended by the mind, it is experienced in simple, quiet awareness, from the stillness within.  
 
Ecclesiastes 3:11  
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
