The Fire of Truth

Imagine sitting around a fire, with a number of people sitting around its edge.

To get a complete and true description of the fire we must put everyone’s perspective together. We must see it from above as well as below.

Our own perspective is just one viewpoint of the fire, one piece of the puzzle. Our perspective is so incomplete.

As is our perspective of the truth.
