VirtueTo be an honest person, to tell the truth, to do nice things, to have a wonderful heart, a noble character, to do things that others may follow in is virtue. But the greatest virtue lies in the embodiment of Truth. This is not the ordinary truth, but the real Truth which says that I am the Truth. The ordinary truth says now I am telling lies, now I am telling the truth. But the real Truth is something different. The real Truth holds the world, the entire creation. Here, Creation and Truth cannot be separated. At present we separate them; we say Creation is here; Truth is there. But when we speak of the real Truth, it is oneness. The Ultimate Truth is absolute oneness with everything in the universe. We all have to become that Oneness.
