one truth...

You will always know what you need to know when you need to know it.  The truth always reveals itself. It comes in its own costume. The truth reveals itself in an instant of recognition or in a long span of silence. It comes in its own time. We think the truth is found and kept in our heads, when the truth is appearing in front of us all the while.  This truth, this ultimate, irrefutable truth, is what Buddhists call the Way. The other truth, the truth you try to figure out and manipulate, is called your way.  Trying to make things go your way is complicated and futile. Things don't always go your way, but they always go. Learn to simply see how things go and respond accordingly.  Living this way is going beyond knowing.
