The Truth Lived is Most Worth Living

There's truth and then there's truth. There's a way of seeing the truth as it supposedly stands pristine and virginal in all its beauty, unapproachable by mere mortals. Then there's truth that you try to live every day, maing it real in your life so that it becomes something you strive for and embody in every cell of your being.

These two views are not necessarily opposed, but you have to keep them in sight so long as breath moves through your blood. They feed off each other--the one unchanging yet continually coming into clearer focus as you live the life given by time and circumstance and vision of truth that spurs you to build and make the clay that you are into a being that can live with itself and its most beautiful dreams.
