Truth CreatedWritten by Terry Dashner

Scholars have described Clinton as “the most skillful liar in American presidential history” and journalists have come up with a host of words to describe him—his “want of truth,” his “fluid conception of what’s real,” his “situational veracity,” his “believing everything he says when he says it,” and like. One of earliest bumper stickers skewered his lying perfectly: “Bill Clinton: 99% Fact-free!” [Ibid, p. 60]
Do you think I’m giving Clinton an unfair assessment? I wish I could say that his leadership legacy was one of impeccable integrity—punctuated with openness, honesty, straight-talk, and self-effacement. But, I can’t because he chose a postmodern life style over absolute truth—or even objective truth. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, former Soviet Union’s one-man dissident movement—said in his Nobel speech: “one word of truth outweighs entire world.” [Ibid, p. 10]
I think Jesus said it best—you “shall know truth…” Then again if truth can be known, then truth exists. If truth exists, then it can be discovered. It should not be created at whim. If truth exists, is it universal? I think so. It’s as morally wrong to murder someone in France as it is to murder someone in Bible belt of America. And if moral truth is universal, then a person who defies moral law of monogamy in a civilized country will eventually transmit sexual diseases just like a person would in a third world country. Therefore, to know truth, to practice truth is to live a liberated life. Why? Because same man who said that truth is to be known also said that truth would set a man free. After all, doesn’t everyone—even postmodernist—want to be free? If so, then all should seek out and live in truth. The Word of God is truth.
Keep faith. Stay course. Jesus is coming soon.

any of us take lightly, any more than anyone in any given field would. We may, at times, be overly defensive of our field simply due to negatism associated with it. Somewhere along way we got grouped with voodoo, witches and worse! I'd love to take this opportunity to state that a great many of us are actually Christians and would love to distance ourselves from other notions asap. There isn't any hocus pocus involved - mind is at work while we sleep, and details of its work can provide us with golden insights into our life. It's all about finding out what our mind is telling us and using that information to enrich our lives and lives of others. It's as simple as that.
The passion that drives most dreamologists isn't just fascination or fun...although each are undeniable. The real goal and motivation of any good dreamologist is thought that by looking closely at dreamer's dream we can, hopefully, help dreamer. If their dream is somehow trying to convey an important message to him/her, we want very much for them to get it!
At Dream Prophesy.com, our #1 motivation from day #1 has been YOU - helping you to take your dreams and use them to get most out of life. That's what we were here for yesterday, what we're here for today, and what we'll be here for tomorrow.
Dream Prophesy.com and the Dream Prophesy Guide (Blog) are dedicated to the utterly fascinating world of dreams. We love to analyze and re-analyze dreams, looking underneath their surface, scrutinizing every minute detail and symbolism (that's really where the good stuff is, you know!).
