Master: “The Truth will set you free.” John 8:32
Student: What is Truth?
Master: Truth is the Eternal Existence of God, or if you prefer you may use another symbol of God, Source; Truth is Oneness with All that Is; Divine Love; Light, Abundance, Joy, and Grace. Truth is Now, the Reality that time and space, illusions of the mind, do not exist.
Student: OK. So, the Truth will set me free from what?
Master: Fear. Truth will set you free from fear.
Student: And what is fear?
Master: Fear is a reaction to forgetting Truth.
Student: When we forget our Truth we become fearful? I’m not quite sure I understand.
Master: Fear is the illusion that the Truth of our identity is not Love. Fear is the attempt to move forward in the darkness while losing sight of Truth. Fear shows itself as an attack on oneself or others, on that which does not exist.
Student: That’s pretty heavy. So, what is darkness?
Master: Darkness is the illusion of the absence of Light. Darkness is being in a state of forgetfulness of Truth.
Student: You seem to speak in riddles, Master. Please tell me, what is Light?
Master: Light is an aspect of Truth. Or, Truth is an aspect of Light. It is an Expression of the Eternal Existence of God, our Source. Light reflects the Oneness of All that Is through Divine Love. Abundance, Joy, and Grace are Rays of the Light of Truth. Light exists in Reality, not in the illusion of time and space.
Student: Ah, I think I’m starting to get it. So, I guess the biggest question of all is, who is or what is God?
Master: My student, as you study and apply the teachings, you will return to provide me with your definition of God. For now, I can give you only the abridged version of that which you ask. This is because attempting to define God, our Source would take more Knowledge than even the Masters comprehend. For now, I offer you this:
God, or our Source is Eternal Existence, the Creator and the Expression of Oneness with All that Is. God is Divine Love, Light, Abundance, Joy, and Grace. In the Reality of Now, God Exists in all Creations and all Creations Exist in God. We are fractals of the One that Is. To recognize God is to recognize Truth.
