  1. Introduction

I’m searching for truth“ (Majk Spirit)
When I was just a little boy I had a lot of questions, I just wanted the plain truth without tinsels, somehow I never liked that box (TV), I liked reading, I was curious about a lot of things, I asked, forbidden topics attracted me mysticism, occult, mystery , esotericism, things that the media didn’t even mention, time is already elsewhere, google makes me wonder, all the information is there, you can go to them, not to be comfortable gentleman, on the other hand, why not be comfortable gentleman, the universe can at any time change the plan, is it worth it all the time gathering some wisdom? What if the world will never understand fully what if it's bigger than me, what if I am the only question mark here?
I'm looking for the truth, I don’t know how about you, I'm looking for the truth (the truth, eh!) Because I know that those who seek find, (find, eh!)
Big Bang or Adam and Eve, God created people or people created God? Why do people suffer, what is death? What am I here for and where is my boat sailing? I am a body that has a spirit or the spirit has the body? It's in black and white, is that grey the goal? Is the travelling in time possible? Can you enter the same river somewhere again? Chicken or the egg? Do we have the sixth sense? Does an ordinary human life have any meaning? Do we have the universal mind? Who built such a great pyramid? Why don’t they mention Atlantis in the schools? Is it true that people invent diseases as a genocide, can people really not live without violence? There comes a reverse polarity, or REVIBRATION and who makes the crop circles and what happened in Rozvel?
I have a dream and still know that I know nothing and I do not know if I knew more when I was seven, and all those years in school might have only harmed me, did those years or fertilized or poisoned my soil, but what does not kill me makes me stronger, now I'm strong, I'm not trying to be the smart one, infallible, I’m learning in the school of life, I dream that one day I’ll get out of the maze, light is stronger than darkness, what I choose is only up to me, I want to light the candle, let it burn until the button, I want to know the truth because it will set me free, truth is light and only light will expel darkness from the inside, I am not seeking it outside, I know I need to find it inside, because it is unnecessary for me to conquer the whole world, if I don’t get to understand the beauty within a living flower.

  1. the Great Questions mentioned

"…we ask ourselves whether Truth is a substance (the Truth, the Body of Knowledge), or a quality (something like the coloured, inhering in truths), or a relation ('correspondence')."1

  • God

  • Suffering

  • The meaning and purpose of human life

  • Philosophy/Religion - What are the possibilities of the human mind - universal consciousness.2

  • Can we solve the mysteries of history
    1. our sympathy

  • Talking (singing/rapping) about serious things

  • The lies around us: advertising; friends; politicians; textbooks; …our own senses; self-view
    1. Discussion

  • Do I believe him?

  • What is he looking for?

  • Is there hope he will find it?

  • How do I know I shall recognize truth when I find it?

  • Google - all information is there (?) - expression of faith!!

  • I have to find it inside of me.
  1. the bible about truth

  • Hebrew: faithfulness - keeping promises; being constant

  • Greek: openness - seeing the hidden; knowing the mystery;

  • the truth is in the Person (Jn 14:6) - in the Spirit (Jn 16)

  • In the Bible, truth is an experience AND a proposition (sentences, words)

  • It’s impossible to find the truth without definitions and propositions

  • It’s impossible to live without truth – it’s possible to express what you feel (Majk Spirit) but impossible to claim that it’s the truth about this world (e.g. What this sentence is saying is not true.)

  • The truth is the measuring tape – if it’s broken, you can’t measure anything (so the problem is not in the object you’re measuring but in the measuring tape) – how can you know what’s the truth when you don’t have tools to recognize it?!

  • God addresses us through words, but if truth is not words for us (and it’s only what we’re feeling, experiencing) but only an imagination, we’re not able to hear Him in this way – God sometimes starts speaking through suffering to get us out of an imaginary world (a cartoon world)

  • The Bible shows us that in order to find the truth we must be found by God first

  • I’m someone who is born without a map and can’t find the truth

  • If I want to start finding it I need to start praying to God: the first step to finding the truth is admitting that I don’t know it

  • I need to TRUST – there is no way I’ll be sure that I’ve found the whole truth about the whole world (I can’t test everything, check all the information up etc).

  • The way out of the maze: the parable of the lost sheep

  • The truth is objective and it is necessary to know it

  • John 8: the truth sets free – the truth is not only about propositions, the Truth is a person, Jesus, and when I follow Him I’m getting to know the truth

  • Songs like this one are criticizing the culture, accusing it of not being radical enough – but Jesus was the most radical person in the world and to follow Him is the most radical thing we can do

  • Matthew 7: who seeks finds, AND knocks, and asks! – looking for the truth can’t be an egocentric selfish quest of possessing something, I need to admit that I need to be accepted by God Himself

  • Poetical side of the truth: the truth includes emotions (which have to be anchored in God’s reality)

  • “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life” – all connected – I need to follow in order to know the truth and to have life

  • John 7:17 – If anyone chooses to do God’s will, he will find out whether I speak on my own.
  1. "I am searching for truth"

    1. What it means "to search for truth"?

(1) Truth is lost (?) I am lost, do not know who I really am

(2) There are conflicting versions about too many things - people are lying…

(3) I need an explanation of a phenomenon, natural law, of a mystery…

(4) I want to see the whole picture, partial knowledge is misleading

(5) I desire to communicate an experience that is difficult to put in words

(6) I am trying to understand the meaning of existence


A man may say wonderfully truthful things, but his thinking is what tells. It is possible to say truthful things in a truthful manner and to tell a lie in thinking. I can repeat to another what I heard you say, word for word, every detail scientifically accurate, and yet convey a lie in saying it, because the temper of my mind is different from the temper of your mind when you said it. A lie is not an inexactitude of speech, a lie is in the motive. I may be actually truthful and an incarnate liar. It is not the literal words that count but their influence on others.3

  1. commitment to searching

  • Is he sure he is not deceiving himself?

  • Jer 29:13 You will seek me and find me. When you seek me with all your heart,

  • Jer 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?

  • Truth without embellishments. (advertising?)

  • Jeremiah 17:9 'The heart is more devious than any other thing, and is depraved; who can pierce its secrets?

  • I will burn down my candle - reduce it to ashes.
  1. Uncertainty (Dangerous world)

  • What is truth? To most modern people, truth is the agreement between the intended subject matter of a word or a sentence, on the one hand, and the nature of the fact to which the word or sentence refers, on the other.

  • What are the prohibeted themes? - (1) protection, (2) uncertainty, (3) manipulation

  • John 5:40 you refuse to come to me that you may have life.

  • John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him.

  • The Universe can change its course anytime. different reality?

  • Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

  • What if I am the only question mark here? am I sinful?

  • 1Cor 2:14 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God,

  • John 5:44 How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?

  • Conspirations? Inventing sickness for genocide.

  • Jer 12:6 For even your brothers and the house of your father, even they have dealt treacherously with you; they are in full cry after you; do not believe them, though they speak friendly words to you."

  • I have a dream I will get out of the labyrinth one day.

  • John 7:17 If anyone's will is to do God's will, he will know whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking on my own authority.

  • John 8:31 ¶Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

  • John 8:12 "I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life."

  • Jesus: Matthew 7:8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who searches finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

  • John 8:32 You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

  • Did humans create God, or God created humans? (Feuerbach)

  • Enter the same river twice (Heraclite)

2 Universal Mind is the universal higher consciousness or source of being in some forms of esoteric or New Thought and spiritual philosophy. It may be considered synonymous with the subjective mind or it may be referred to in the context of creative visualization, usually with religious or spiritual themes. The word originally derived from Hegel. (Wiki)
