The truth is beyond me

If you understand, things are just as they are; if you do not understand, things are just as they are. (Zen saying)

The truth — whatever it is — is not in any way dependent my knowing it, finding it, believing it, proclaiming it, explaining it, getting it right, getting it wrong …

The truth — whatever it is — takes no explaining, requires no proof; the truth is unequivocal and incontrovertible; the truth is the truth.

The truth — whatever it is — is beyond my ability to comprehend.

Nothing but lies come out of my mouth. There, I’ve done it again! (a Zen master)

One thought on “The truth is beyond me

  1. Thoughtful Christians ought to agree with all of these things. We’d just add that among God’s attributes are supreme potency, truth, and love. God is love; naturally He wants to be known, and He can make himself known to us, despite our limitations.
