Hi Robert,

I am interested in your opinion regarding the differences between Truth, Knowledge and Belief.

Also, when practicing Catch Basket, what are the signs one is being blinded by ego?

Thank you,
Mary

G'day!


Truth is self-supporting and cannot be easily discounted, all things being equal that is. False beliefs and false knowledge will, however, overturn the truth as being apparent lies.

Accurate knowledge supports the truth.

Beliefs are things we have come to believe are true.

The bottom line here is that personal experience, logic and reason are the only tools we have to know the difference.

As for ego and the catch basket concept, all the above applies. Generally, inspirational downloads, if true, are reasonable and self-evident, and provable according to personal experience. To counter the ego, reason and logic, plus some modesty and humility, are required. Anything that feeds the ego is suspect until 'proven' otherwise.
