...truth is the universal solvent for blockages, limitations, conflicts, and problems of mortal existence. Some say truth hurts, but it only hurts ego, never the loving self that you are. Truth is the highest consciousness, and the ever-abiding presence of God in reality. In knowing that, you know the truth which is constant with love. ...Truth is revealed only in the presence of love. While all emotions have their own element of truth, there is no truth to be found in belligerent and hostile actions. The truths that are occluded from you are the ones smothered by your breaches with love. This is the great value of a true friend or a true love. In his or her presence, truth is a shining revelation.
