What is truth?

April 7, 2011

TRUTH, n.

1. Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be.

Truth = Reality

Do you live in reality? Most people don’t. Most people are trying to escape reality because they can’t deal with it. Most people can’t deal with the truth that is reality. Most people would rather be engaged by the tv, movies, video games, etc. Some think that they can attain the status of a popular singer, a movie star, a beauty queen, etc, but in reality all these people are made. The person you see on the front cover of a magazine is not real. That picture is lying to you. It is presenting you with an image that you cannot possibly attain to. We live in the Photoshop generation. Nearly 90% of all images are photoshopped in some way. That is not reality/truth. You are being lied to. Are you admiring a false image, or are your desires based in reality? What is truth?

“Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”
