What can be known?

That which is directly experienced, and that which does the experiencing. Neither can be captured or expressed completely in concepts (thoughts or words).

What about belief?

Beliefs are just thoughts. Whether or not they are believed is unimportant.

What is important?

Nothing. But it seems helpful to distinguish between what can be known and what cannot so the search for "Truth" can relax.

What is Truth?

"Truth" is another concept. It's irrelevant.

What is relevent?

The current, ongoing flow of experience. That's all that's relevant because that's all that can be known.

What about the Bible, the Koran, the Gitas, the Vedas, the Sutras, all the sacred texts? Don't they merit belief?

They appear as part of the flow of experience. To the extent that they make claims about things that are beyond experience, they can't be confirmed or debunked within experience. Until their claims are confirmed or debunked within experience, all that can be said is, "That may or may not be true. I have no way of knowing."
"Do you believe in God?"

"I don't even believe in the past and future."


God is a know-it-all
No one who wants power is fit to wield it wisely.
"The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good."

--Samuel Johnson, (1709-1784)

But there's no one in that category. Even the one with nothing can give me an experience of the divine.
Insecurity replaces open-mindedness with certainty.
"You can safely assume that you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do."

--Anne Lamott, (1954- )
