The followers of Jesus of Nazareth managed to compile pieces of “the truth”. The followers of Buddha, Confucius, Lao-Tzu, Gandhi, and other great sages, “miracle workers”, spiritual leaders, and humanitarians throughout history managed to compile other pieces. Each of us has the capacity to find our own meaningful truths. That is the purpose of life… the journey for truth, meaning, and perfection. All of the great human beings who have come before us dedicated their lives to pointing “The Way”. There are obvious strands that connect each of their journeys. So find, give them some serious thought, try applying them, and see if they work.
