UNDERSTANDING ABSOLUTE AND RELATIVE TRUTH

Understanding Absolute And Relative Truth

Confusion comes from misunderstanding
relative truth as opposed to absolute truth.

‘Absolute’ is direct seeing, without relating or creating a concept.
‘Relative’ is how we relate to whatever is seen, and create a concept.

Absolute is the fact.
Relative is the fact checker.

If we do not know the difference through experience,
we won’t see that they are a unity, like a mirror and the reflection.

If we only acknowledge the relative,
this will have a fundamental effect on our sanity.

If we only acknowledge the absolute,
this will have a fundamental effect on our sanity.

It is in the unity of relative and absolute
that we find the sanity to deal with any situation.

The relative is a circle of confusion.
The absolute is a circle of no circumference.
