What is truth anyway? Haha, everything is relative it seems! Truth to some people is a lie to others, depending on how we each view things. So what makes a good spiritual truth. I started compiling a list today:
1. Transcends time and space - applies equally to us now as it did centuries ago. The beatitudes are a good example: 'love your neighbor as yourself..' 'do to others as you'd like done to you'
2. Works even when under pressure. Maybe that's when they work the best? I don't know, if a person is transformed inside, they don't go around hatin' and beatin' on gay people or their wives, and road rage would not exist.
3. Applies to all people - All people can apply the truth. Even a developmentally delayed person. ie. Love your neighbor as yourself. Be nice to other people. Be nice to animals. Don't be greedy or selfish. Try your best.
