A Final Word about the Truth
Sometimes it is difficult for the new warrior to fully accept that there is no absolute truth in the universe. All societies and civilizations are founded and held together by their common beliefs about what is true and right. Each human's identity is held together by what the individual believes is true. It is a major act of power on the path to personal freedom for the warrior to release his identity based on what he believes and his sense of belonging with others who believe the same things.
The entire concept of morals and morality is based on the assumption that there is an absolute truth in the universe, and someone or some group knows what that absolute truth is. It is easy, then, for that person or group to know that anyone who does not follow their rules is wrong and not part of “them.” If the morality has been handed down from a powerful deity, then the authority of the rules is much stronger, and the fear of breaking them is greater.
Releasing attachments to all concepts about anything and everything in creation is one of the biggest challenges of the Toltec warrior. It does not mean that the warrior has no preferences or desires, only that he has no attachments to the outcomes. He knows that everything he believes is the truth and a lie.
If every religion, philosophy, and society believed in the same moral truths and social rules, it might be possible to agree that there is an absolute truth in the universe. Since that is far from the case, and there are different rules and expectations of behavior in every corner of the world (and wars everywhere, about who is right), the only conclusion seems to be that there is no universal truth. There is only the dreaming mind of every human, and the perfectly true lie they are dreaming in each and every mind.
The great truth that exists outside of the human dreaming minds can only be inferred. It is the Truth that cannot be spoken of, because speaking of it is dreaming, which is not the truth. The minute it is labeled “the divine” or any other term, it is being dreamed, not perceived.
