Objective Truth

Posted by Phillip Gordon on Monday, January 18, 2010
Amongst the wonderful discoveries that we have come to know, is the fact that each person has their own perception of reality, that our personal filters and inherent eye, sees life differently from the person next door.  While this contribution has allowed a inclusion of the individual state, and encourages a diverse range of view points, what it potentially develops is a lack of the understanding of sameness.  The ability to see humanity as gifted with the same fundamental capacities and attributes.  We have  become afraid of speaking Truths that are contained within and indeed pertains to all existence. 

Let me example here.  There is often a discussion of choice, whether we have it or not, whether we are able to use it to define our lives or not, whether it is useful or not.  In this discussion one is often lead to see that what you choose is the shaping and ownership of your world.  That your perception and deep knowing will lead you to your own path.  If this is so, and by  choosing to utilise this idea or not, one uses the faculty of choice, and therefore is using a fundamental capacity of human function.  Therefore the fact that we have choice to choose or not is a truth beyond the individual, it becomes the domain of all humans.  It becomes an objective truth. 

We are all living on the same planet. Truth or not?  We all need the same things to survive. Truth or not?  Why is it that an objective truth is something we have become so scared of pursuing, of discovering, of uttering to our friends and neighbours?  Sure it is one of the trickiest territories there is, yet without it we fall in to the hands of solipsism and end up building our egos, rather than releasing the grip they have on us. 

While relative subjective truth is a wonderful realisation, if it is at the cost of a willingness to see a larger picture, an objective truth, we are lost in a minefield of our own making.
