The Spiritual Reality of Truth
In this 20 minute talk I explore (briefly!!) the spiritual reality of truth; the un-truth of political movements inspired by postmodernism; and the paradox of the individual yet universality of the striving toward truth as a spiritual deed. I begin with the tale of the Blind Men and the Elephant—is the wall experienced by one man, the rope (tail) experienced by another, the tree trunk (leg) experienced by a third the truth–or simply part of the larger truth which can only be understood by grasping the spiritual unity of the elephant? And by the way, I owe much of what I said about the elephant to research undertaken by Goethean scientist Craig Holdrege (of the Nature Institute).
