In Revealing Word, Charles Fillmore tells us that Truth is ‘The Absolute; that which accords with God as divine principle; that which is, has been, and ever will be; that which eternally is.’
Finally, Paul Hasselbeck (author of Heart Centred Metaphysics) says ‘Anything that acknowledges, verifies, supports or expresses Divine Ideas is called “Truth”’.
I was raised as an engineer and so I like to see things as simply and plainly as I can. So, whereas I wouldn’t disagree with any of the above, I find them a bit wordy; for me Truth is Oneness or, perhaps even just ‘One’.
You see all the problems I face in life come from thoughts of separation, of being cut off from my Divinity, the Christ within.
When I remember that I AM ONE IN GOD and I manage to let go and let God (not always easy, I frequently think I know best!) then my experience of troubles and my fears drop away and I feel the flow (as Eric Butterworth would call it) of Love, in me, through me, as me and all around me.
This is the joy that is mine. Jesus said that he came that we should “have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10) ; he also said “the father and I are one” (John 10:30). So, as One, in Oneness I have life abundantly and I feel joy.
Thank you for letting me share my ramblings; it has set me up for that class and, maybe, I can now answer this question for my students; should they ask!!
