How to Find Truth
Updated: Feb 4
Learn the Language of Truth to find the truth in ourselves and know other people's true intentions.
The Language of Truth is to see the objective reality of things, the factual version of the situation in front of you. Not the remixed, embellished and exaggerated version.
What is Objective Reality?
At an atomic level, all things are 90% space, but if you punch a brick wall with your bare hand, it's your hand that breaks.
Similarly, objective reality is knowing the general 'rules' that govern people before you even start a conversation with them.
For example, when the commissioned salesperson says; "Trust me, this is the right product for you", you know they cannot necessarily be trusted.
Or, on a more personal level, you know that when your partner is upset with you, it can just be that they feel insecure and are venting their fear.
Objective Reality Shows You The Real Intention
To find another person's real motivations or intentions, what they really mean and feel, you must be able to see the truth.
We teach the Language of Truth to all students who attend our workshops. After practice, it becomes possible to perceive the truth in all things, to see the real meaning or underlying reality.
We must learn to see what is inside the box, instead of just the box and trusting what other people tell you is inside it.
1. Consider Each Person's Intention
Do they intend to trick you in business through scams or pushy salespeople? Or maybe it's on a personal level to hurt or manipulate you?
On the other hand, sometimes people say something that sounds hurtful, but they actually mean it with totally different intentions.
The misunderstanding of the reality of many situations causes you pain - yes, just the misconception and not the actual event.
Avoid any misunderstanding by considering carefully their words and actions. Then you can respond appropriately.
2. Find Your Ultimate End Goal
Whether you desire a loving relationship or more success with your personal goals in life, we must know why we ultimately want these goals.
You can have it all if you know how to see the truth in all things.
David was a millionaire at the age of 25. He learnt to fly and had an aeroplane, fancy cars, properties and numerous companies. Along with these material assets, he also achieved an experience of enlightenment.
Your ultimate end goal may not be what you think it is, which is why you don't hit your goals.
The real reason David succeeded at everything he desired was because at 5 years old he set a goal for his life, up to the age of 100. It was that one long term life goal which was the reason WHY he wanted, and achieved, everything he did, despite the many ups and downs that life inevitably hits us with.
Learn to see the truth in everything, what other people are really saying, but more importantly, in what you think your own goals, thoughts, feelings and emotions are.
3. Don't Even Follow The Buddha Blindly
After seven years as a monk in many monasteries and spiritual schools worldwide, David has discovered that most students and 'seekers' remain the same after years of practising.
Of the hundreds of seekers I have personally met, few find what they are searching for. In fact most remain the same as they did before they started searching.
The reason? David says they are looking in the wrong direction.
Are You Following a Fantasy?
Purely as an example, take the Buddha.
There are currently over 500 million Buddhists. Their aspirations are exemplary; they aspire to be a good person by following the example of Buddha.
However, how many have reached enlightenment?
There will be a few only out of the total number of Buddhists throughout their 2500-year history.
David's perspective is that they have followed a misconception about what they believe the founder was actually like.
Three Questions to Consider
Would you say a reasonable person would abandon his wife and infant child?
Would they abandon tens of thousands of people who are depending on them?
Would they leave it all just to pursue their self-centred desires?
The Buddha's Story
The story of Buddha says that he left his wife and infant child in the night and abandoned his position as prince of the kingdom to spend his life isolated in the pursuit of enlightenment so he could end the suffering of being human.
Once he achieved complete enlightenment and freedom from the human condition, he wanted to leave this world to live alone and free of any contact.
As the Buddhist teachings say, before Buddha could do anything, the angels and other spirits begged him to stay in the world and teach what he discovered to help the world.
He argued that there was no point because maybe only a couple of people had the chance to understand, and it was not worth the trouble to him, but they begged further and finally, he agreed to stay in the world to teach. So he returned to the world from his isolation to teach what he had discovered.
With all respect to the Buddha and those who follow the Buddhist path, I am just trying to show that there may be a reason that people are not getting what they seek and using this as an example to convey the concepts.
Was Buddha Perfect or Irresponsible?
Buddha, the image of the perfect human being, was what anyone today would be called a selfish and irresponsible man. He abandoned his family and responsibilities just because he wanted to do what he wanted for himself.
He never returned to his wife and child or resumed his position as heir to be king, but although he taught, he still lived the way he wanted, alone. Is this the type of person you want to be? Are you seeing the full truth and accurate details of anything you follow?
Imagine how the kingdom would have been run if Buddha was king? What an example that would have been set for the future of the world.
Analyse the Story to Find the Real Goal
David uses this example to help us see that we must learn to know the truth in everything. Not just what others are saying, but ourselves and our own goals, thoughts, feelings and emotions.
We must learn to carefully dissect the story - our story. If the words and the actions don't correlate, then we must try again to find what the real truth is.
The problem is that the ultimate end goal of every goal you have may not be what you think it is, and that is why you are not getting it.
4. Use the 'Language of Truth' Technique
Have you achieved your goal? If not entirely, try David's Truth Technique.
Technique to Discover the 'Language of Truth'
Forget about the goal itself, and drill down to why you want it.
What will you do if you achieve it?
What will your life be like if you achieve it?
Are you not achieving your goal of happiness? The lifestyle and goals you think will bring you joy are not the right ones. It's time to find a different way.
5. WHen you Accept the truth, you find Your Power
Our workshops are about achieving happiness through everything expected in a good life, including money, a meaningful career and a loving relationship.
The way to achieve everything you desire, is through making your mind and personality able to see the real truth in all situations. This starts with becoming emotionally balanced and free from negative emotions.
It's far more straightforward than you can imagine to live a life where you never feel insulted, attacked or hurt, and never be subject to someone putting you under a guilt trip for their mistakes.
That is Power, and that Power is the foundation of achieving all your goals.
Instead of chasing your goals which seems always just out of reach, or that you cannot even figure out what your goals are, I suggest you put all your focus into learning how the mind and emotions really work.
Become master of your mind, and you will be master of every aspect of your life.
Finding the truth is not as elusive or esoteric as it sounds. It starts with an honest look at ourselves as we answer the basic question as to whether we are happy. We should also consider whether we are where we hoped to be at this age and at this point in our lives. Let's take the time to make the time we have left count.
