The Truth is Not in You

When facing the question of what I really am, the advice that worked for me was, "Look at you."

Where else is the truth to be found? What can we trust to be the truth? Our senses are limited, our view is particular, our thinking bound up in categories and stories. Nothing even a hair's breadth from the core of what each of us calls "me" can be confirmed in any way as true.

When handed the idea that "the truth is you", it can easily morph into "the truth is in you." Nothing could be further from the truth, and the idea that the truth is in us is only a sidetrack that keeps us from facing the naked challenge that truth is.
