"I claim no perfection for myself. But I do claim to be a passionate seeker after Truth, which is but another name for God." "I do not envisage God other than truth and non-violence." "The search for Truth is the search for God. Truth is God. God is, because Truth is." - Mahatma Ghandi

Now perhaps we can tackle the mis-interpretations of this quote from Jesus:
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." - John 14:6

Jesus said this out of being a representation of Truth. This wasn't meant to be interpreted that no man comes unto the Father except by Jesus the man. It means that no one comes unto the Truth (the Father), except by ways of truth/love. It was the Truth speaking through the man because the man and his mind (thought processes) were out of the way. It was the Truth speaking, not the ego/mind of Jesus the man. The only way to the Truth, is by the truth.

The Truth shines through and happens all by itself when that which is in the way (thoughts), is out of the way. All-knowing intuitive Awareness (that is aware of the mind), which is the real you, shines through when one is no longer identified with being the body and the automatic random repetitive thoughts of the mind. Silence is the nature of Awareness/God/Truth/Self so only a silent mind can come to the firsthand experience of It. Speaking about it, and either believing in it, or against it, is missing the point entirely.

Words only have the meaning that the ego/mind of the individual has attached to them. Also, over time different words become imbued with certain energy frequencies; the frequency of the thing that the word represents. So a swear word will carry a negative energy, while a word like Divinity will carry a very high positive frequency. But this is dealing with the realm of relative truth where things change. When it comes to the changeless indescribable Absolute of Divinity/Self/Awareness, words are meaningless.

"The ultimate Truth is beyond words. Doctrines are words. They're not the Way. The Way is wordless. Words are Illusions." - Bodhidharma, founder of Zen

"Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear." "Truth stands, even if there be no public support. It is self-sustained." - Mahatma Ghandi

Truth is self-sustaining because it is (Infinitely) Everything, and because it's the only thing that's real. Falsehood has no power when brought to the light of truth because all falsehood is the absence of truth, which means it's not real and it doesn't actually exist. The truth takes it over completely and fills the void that used to be un-truth. There is no such thing as falsehood because that would imply that it exists. That's why it's better to call it un-truth or the absence of truth. Or better yet, don't define it at all, don't call it anything, don't create concepts and words in your mind, and you'll experience/be the Truth, rather than just speaking about it. Can you imagine what it would be like to be formless all-knowing Awareneness as Infinitely Everything? No, of course not. So stop trying to! :)

Because negatives are the absence of positives, positives have far greater power and energy. The higher the level of truth, the more powerful it is. The greater the love, truth, awareness, selflessness, or Divinity that goes into the making of something, the higher the energy it has. The simple act of reading this article/website is raising your physical vibrational frequency, thus contributing to healing the mind and body. The more you realize that you are actually formless Awareness/Spirit/Divinity, and not the mind and body, the more the mind and body are healed. The more you abide in happiness, joy, and peace, despite life's circumstances, the more the mind and body are healed. But the physical mind and body are only temporary vehicles/tools used for the purpose of evolving consciousness to the point where one is no longer identified with being the mind and body, and instead is identified with being silent Awareness as Infinitely Everything.

"You have always been one with the Buddha (Absolute), so do not pretend you can ATTAIN to this oneness by various practices." - Huang Po
