Essential Truth applies equally to everyone, everything, everywhere. A stated Truth, however, is a generalized statement of facts about a situation or condition that interpret its underlying applicability to other environments or similar circumstances.

A stated Truth is often not actually true but rather an apparently fact-based conclusion about the nature or experience of reality, which may not reflect actuality on all levels of awareness. Many factors influence our perception of Truth: society, religion, cultures, corporations, the media, and institutions of all kinds, all prejudice our perspective.

To uncover Essential Truth, every statement must be examined to determine whether all facts have been considered equitably and applied to the condition or situation with an open mind. Prejudiced statements that emphasize only one aspect of a situation or condition are beliefs rather than Truth and must be tested.

The Ponderable Truths List below is presented in no particular order and continues to grow. Contemplate the sentence.  Consider each Truth statement and ask Two Questions:

1) Is this actually True?
2) What does this mean to me?

287 To communicate requires that the message sent is the same one received -- and understood.
288 Recitation of rote responses short-circuits conscious consideration.

311 To live your dreams ends the dream.

334 The only way to avoid doing harm is to avoid wronging anyone.
335 Amends for a wrong are right when we acknowledge it, take responsibility for our part in it, and go on to do better.
336 Amends cannot undo a wrong any more than mending a porcelain vase can make it whole.

437 When you are ready to learn, the same old lesson suddenly has new meaning.
438 Holding in feelings ends more relationships than healthy conflict.

440 No one in the world is more important than your self.
441 No matter what kind of a day you are having, it can improve.

457 When old ways no longer suit, fashions change.
458 Exclusive rules make unity impossible.
459 Unity can be achieved only if there is a single whole.
460 An exclusive Us group necessarily requires an opposing Them.
461 You give energy and power to every group with which you interact.
462 If you subscribe to many external beliefs and groups, your energy is scattered.
463 If you focus on problems and what could go wrong, you enhance negative likelihoods; if you imagine positive results, you increase the probability of a good outcome.
464 Dwelling on the past or a wrong or something you don't want increases its power in your life.
465 When you focus on another person, you can't envision your own goals.

467 If you stop fighting your opponents, they will find something else to do.
468 Each relationship you form guides you a step along your life journey.
469 Each successive opportunity you have to learn a universal lesson usually seems harder, but in reality, it is merely more obvious (at least from a retrospective point of view).

471 For many people, it is far easier to bare the flesh than to share a personal or unconventional idea.
472 True intimacy risks vulnerability of the heart and mind.
473 To know and accept the innermost self is the most complex and simple process a person can undertake.
474 Decisions are easy if you allow internal intuition and insight to guide you.
475 Making a life is more important than how you make a living.
476 Creative thinkers and individuated, personally empowered workers never fit into a bureaucratic peg.

478 Perks sold on the rushhour interstate hold little value along the meandering road less travelled.

480 Potential results are unrelated to "positive" or "negative" labels.
481 Healthy decisions allow you to respect your self.
482 If you are stimulated to action by a sense of obligation that feels burdensome, you are seeking to meet someone else's expectations.

493 Inertia holds in place any condition accepted without conscious thought.
494 Conscious thought can change reality.
495 If you believe you create your own reality, it is inconsistent to blame others for your problems.

497 As choices swing local or worldwide favor between fervor and loathing, polarity increases.
498 Each action is the next step on a continuum of motion from the point of origin to a new conclusion.
499 Continuing opposition never resolves issues; working toward common goals redefines issues and allows them to be mutually resolved.
500 Any individual/group member giving energy to a choice is responsible for its consequences.
501 Collective inertia influences the results of group choices; individual choices can enable group views to change.
502 Compassion evolves when you realize others are as ignorant in their struggles to overcome life's difficulties as you have been.

506 Grace and mercy always create forgiveness.
507 For constructive present action, energy must be released from the past.
508 Using energy effectively feels effortless.

518 When the teaching is ready, the collective conscious begins to learn.
519 Evolution, at the individual level as well as for the whole, is cyclical and iterative and sequential.
520 Teaching history never prevents its repetition.
521 With each iteration, a lesson costs more.
522 When you follow the crowd rather than your inner urgings, the group gains inertia.
523 Developing conscious choice essentially guides life.
524 Conscious choice disentangles the conflict between inner values and external actions.
525 If you ignore your inner guidance, your mind and heart will always be in conflict.
526 Each choice you make is the correct one to move you to your next lesson.
527 Every choice is effective.
528 There are many paths to the same destination.
529 Choosing is hard only when you believe that one choice is better.
530 The universe is much bigger than you or I or any individual.
531 Consequences may not be immediately obvious.
532 Short term ease does not eliminate the risk of long range danger.
533 The outcome of a choice is only known in retrospect.

543 A map is only as useful as its ability to guide you where you want to go.

553 Without insight, vision, and imaginative creativity, people would stay locked in the known world, searching endlessly for a way out of the deadend maze of the world as it is.
554 New information is necessary to become aware of the world that could be.
555 Each step higher up the mountain of inquiry brings a broader panorama of the answer.
556 Boundlessness is paradoxically both humbling and expansive.
557 Our surface consciousness of which we are day to day aware is verbal, talking clearly, often in ways that distract from less obvious inner ruminations.
558 Free interplay of awareness allows meaning to surface into consciousness.
559 Conscious verbal expression cannot encompass the magnitude of the infinite.
560 Thinking cannot effectively encompass the unimaginable magnitude of the infinite.
561 Understanding the infinite is uniquely filtered by each experience and personal perspective.
562 To achieve a more transcendent orientation, you must learn to question everything.
563 When you transcend the reality you know, you enter an unknown dimension.

565 Being doesn't require doing.
566 The body is a vehicle for traveling life's journey.
567 All thought is finite; the mind cannot experience the infinite.
568 At its most basic level, every finite thing models the infinite.
569 Spirituality cannot be attained just by thinking.
570 To the thinking mind, the eternal energy from which physical manifestation begins and into which it reunites at the physical end appears as "nothingness."
571 Infinite possibiities have no limits, no constraints, no restrictions, no boundaries, no rules.
572 Since energy is never lost, what we have learned must be converted into something universally useful at death.

584 External life is powered by its essence within.
585 The energy of life is always within and around us.
586 Opening to the infinite potential makes all things possible.

592 To desire nothing is not the same as to desire oblivion.
593 An open mind is the power of reinvention.
594 No thing is equivalent to love.

596 Today manifests yesterday's potential.
597 Safety resists change; change requires risk.
598 Forgiveness as your first reaction leaves more to give and less to grieve.
599 The best answer forms in wordless silence.
600 Silence may be the best short run answer but is never a long term solution.
601 Education is social conditioning; learning is experiential conditioning.
602 A closed mind never opens to truth.
603 One victory by force begs another.
604 Success is best judged by its cost.
605 Guaranteed success is an oxymoron.
606 Money enables.
607 Being prepared to accept the worst possible, pleasantly surprises.
608 The cycle of life assures renewal.
609 Ethical choices respect the needs of the whole over the greed of the few.

611 Consider all possibilities first for all do not last.
612 Like a river, life flows unaided, unprompted, unstoppable.

622 To attract love, first love your self.
623 Fundamentalism is GroupThink at its most mindless.
624 Meaning surfaces nonverbally in silence.
625 Repeating the past looks backward.
626 Spirit is deeper than thought.
627 Spirit is always within and never without.
628 Letting go with love is always a trial, but heartstrings hold no matter.
629 The heart is lightened when pain and suffering lessens.
