We find it as we perfect ourselves

July 9th 2017
Truth will never present itself as something so obvious that it imposes itself on us; neither is it something we can impose on others. It is we who, through an ordered and sensible psychic life, are capable of coming closer to the truth. Perhaps we will never attain it, but in seeking to perfect ourselves each day, we come closer to it. So when certain believers glory in belonging to the one true religion, this does not mean that they themselves live the truth. A certificate of baptism does not guarantee possession of the truth. It is the efforts they make every day to wrest themselves from their weaknesses that is most important: this is the only sign that they belong to the true religion.
