Quests of the Human Spirit, Part 4: The Quest for Truth, 1962 March 4


When the sense of personal reality becomes part of an enlarging reality, one encounters truth. The quest for truth may be the essence of all quests, Thurman notes. Such striving is a sole aim and may not always produce or correlate with social change. It is more than a technique. The pursuit of what is spiritually true compels something within the individual to participate in a broader meaning. When one’s inner “root” is absorbed into and becomes the “root” in existence, Thurman says, the truth of one’s being embedded within an unrestricted reality makes the experience of freedom possible.
