(5.11) Any purpose in life may be achieved through a scientific understanding of the spiritual nature of truth.
What we believe will determine what we achieve.
Purpose is synonymous with meaning. One of the quickest ways to transcend being possessed by conditions we face in life is to find purpose within the condition. We locate this purpose by creating it. We avoid suffering by creating purpose in the midst of difficulty and obstacle. Are you refusing to give up what you not longer need at the expense of what you do? Recognize the opportunity change offers to grow into the person you aspire to be. Reaching our ideal state is contingent upon transformation, and we can avoid suffering by embracing this process.
Scientific understanding is based on observation. Facts are based on consistent, measurable, observations.
(3.11) Inductive reasoning is a process of the objective mind in which we compare a number of separate instances with one another until we see the common factor that gives rise to them all.
“Spiritual” refers to the interaction between the individual and creative potential. This interaction happens as a result of thought.
We must differentiate between truth and facts.
“Truth,” is what we believe. It is subjective, based on an individuals experience.
(1.7) The nature of truth is spiritual. Therefore, a knowledge of the truth is necessary for every business transaction and social relation. (1.3) Honesty is a knowledge of what another believes; their truth. Our personal truth is our belief.
