There are various eyes. Even the Sphinx has eyes: and as a result there are various truths, and as a result there is no truth.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Sometimes you justify giving your attention to something because it is true. But, just because it is true is not a good reason, because anything that anyone gives attention to, becomes true. A better question is, “Do I want to experience it?

Abraham-Hicks, in North Los Angeles, CA on February 22, 2014

Silence is not rejection. It’s not condemnation. It’s not even about you. But what do you do with the lack of praise, money or votes of confidence? Do you fill in the blanks with ideas that rob your stamina? Keep sharing your truth. Beaming it from the rafters. Love always attracts love in the end.

Tama J Kieves

The Five Levels of Truth-Telling: First, you tell the truth to yourself about yourself. Then you tell the truth to yourself about another. At the third level, you tell the truth about yourself to another. Then you tell your truth about another to that other. And finally, you tell the truth to everyone about everything.

Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God, Book 2

Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for the Truth.

Benjamin Disraeli

The Light is more than some abstract, unknowable energy force. Light is Truth. If Light is truth, then darkness must be lies. Each and every lie we tell to ourselves and others casts the shadow of separation upon us. Every time even the most minor deception is revealed and the truth is made known we are re-united with the Light. So, Let there be Light. Those are the words by which you can create your own magnificent world.

Renee Bledsoe, Addiction Alchemy

Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in Silver Springs, MD on Sunday, April 11, 1999

Our own life is the instrument with which we experiment with the truth.

Thich Nhat Hanh

All that you are attached to, all that you love, all that you know, someday will be gone. Knowing this, and that the world is your mind which you create, play in, and suffer from, is known as discrimination. Discriminate between the Real and the Unreal, the known is unreal and will come and go so stay with the Unknown, the Unchanging, the Truth.


If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

Mark Twain

… negative feelings are not true feelings at all; rather, they are your thoughts about something, based always on the previous experience of yourself and others. You will not find Truth in your past data, only past data that is based on other past data that is based on other past data, and so forth. Forget your “past experience” and look directly at the experience you are having. Right Here, Right Now. There is your Truth.

Neale Donald Walsch

Tell the truth as soon as you know it.

Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations With God

Truth is enough. Remember that. Truth is all you need. Just as there is one sky which covers everything on earth, so is there one vast truth which covers all your needs. This is inspiration, but is also practical fact. Truth is enough.

For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

Patrick Henry

Do not identify yourself with troubled thoughts. Do not say 'I am scared,' or, 'I am gloomy.' Instead say, 'A scene is passing through my mind, but it is not part of my true self.' When you say this, you declare the Cosmic Truth. It is the truth even if you do not presently feel that it is so. See it clearly and the genuine feeling follows.

The Daily Guru

The naked truth is always better than the best dressed lie.
