Truth is the mind which sees a fact. With the same fact, some view it wrong and others right. People have different angles to see things respectively, which means people see things differently. Every individual has a mind expressed in the same letters but a different eye of the mind. This can also be called truth.
Then where do we put the standard of truth? It must be put on a fact. I will explain easily about it to you. You have to learn from a basic level to understand easily something abruptly told. Without the basic understandings, it is useless to teach lots of things. You have to learn from the beginning.
Then where is truth? My truth is in my mind. The mind which is unable to see my truth and sees facts is the very truth I have.
Then where do we have to lay the standard of truth? The standard is in facts. But my truth is in my mind. So what kind of person is the truest person? What kind of person is the enlightened being?
We are talking about truth so I say we have to have the eye which is able to recognize truth. Then we call the truest person the enlightened being. Then the one who sees and delivers correctly facts is the enlightened being. The human being is the one who will be able to attain the enlightenment, is close to the enlightenment and is the enlightened being.
We can see our own truth with our standards of truth through the process our minds’ seeing, hearing, feeling and understanding. And we can also see others’ truth.
