I have arrived at a Truth. I want to tell people where I am, but this makes little sense unless I can tell them how to get here. And how I got here is why I know that I have arrived at a truth.
With pain it’s a bit different. I arrived at Pain years ago. For me it was losing daily contact with my kids. I don’t care how I got here, I just want to leave. As I slowly have gotten used to Pain, the real pain is that I do not know how to leave. What we call the Truth is often simply the way we found out of a pain. Somehow we know that the Truth we have found and our escape were not accidental companions.
