I am the Truth.

consciousness

“Jesus said when you know the Truth you will be free, and then he said, “I am the Truth.”

Jesus said, “I am the truth.”

He didn’t say “I know the truth,” as if truth is a piece of knowledge held by the mind. Neither did he say, “I have the truth,” as if truth is a possession you can pass along to another. Jesus said, “I am the truth.”

Truth is a reality at the level of being.

Truth is not something outside to be discovered, it is an actuality inside to be realized. What is this actuality? Oneness with God. This is your true Self.”

– Jim Palmer, Notes from (Over) the Edge

    Can you expound on this a little?

    I could be completely off about my idea’s on your last statement, but I wanted to ask for clarification.

    This almost sounds like you are said, “I am the Truth”.

    I ask in my confusion, because Jesus, when he said that, wasn’t also saying “I am A Truth”. Which is kind of what your last statement leads me to, that Jesus was a truth and Jim is a truth. Does that make sense?

    In ward reflection, to me, doesn’t bring about saving Grace.

    As I had said before, I could be completely off about my idea’s on your last statement, but I wanted to ask for clarification.
