Unknown truth and a non-poem on it
Spirituality aims at realising the ultimate truth of life. But, the question is that what that truth is one wishing to realise and can it be realised through texts, processes and techniques.

According to philosopher and thinker J Krisnamurti, there is no path to truth and there are not two truths. He states, "Truth is not of the past or of the present, it is timeless; and the man who quotes the truth of the Buddha, of Shankara, of the Christ, or who merely repeats what I am saying, will not find truth, because repetition is not truth. Repetition is a lie."

He adds, "Truth is a state of being which arises when the mind - which seeks to divide, to be exclusive, which can think only in terms of results, of achievement - has come to an end. Only then will there be truth...Truth is to be known only when we understand the whole process of the mind, that is, when there is no strife."

Here is a non-poem on nature of Truth which I wrote for a blog.

Truth has ?

No path

No technique to fathom

No form or shape

No beginning or end.

~*~

No words

No scripture

No thoughts

No actions

Can lead to Truth.

~*~

Truth dawns -

When all actions

Of body and mind are

For their own sake -

And not for the sake of

Acquiring

Seeking

Reaching

Fulfilling
