To formulate a complete and final definition for truth is not possible, the reason being that the truth in itself, or in any of its expressions, cannot be circumscribed by the human mind. The truth is too large to be described by any definition, however basic or comprehensive it may be. The best we can do, therefore, is to define our highest conceptions of truth. And moreover, we shall find this to be suffi- cient. To define and understand our highest conception of truth is to know, in the present, as much of the truth as we shall find necessary to gain that freedom that invariably comes with the truth. And as we continue to seek higher and higher conceptions of truth, as we advance in life, we shall accordingly find that greater measure of freedom which must necessarily accompany the more advanced stages of human existence. The purpose, thereforer of this book is not to present a clear-cut definition of truth, nor to give an answer to the question, What is truth? that would stand the test of all thought and experience. No, indeed, for such a course would defeat the aim we all have in view—the finding of more and more truth, and would make the search of truth far more difficult. The reason for this will be evident as we peruse the following pages.

Our purpose in this work is rather to present a plan or outline by which any individual may guide his mind in the attainment of higher and higher conceptions of truth in all its phases, and thereby understand the truth for himself at every stage of advancement which he may reach in his own sphere of life, thought and action. And this is the only rational course to pursue, for each individual must understand the truth for himself if he is to know that truth that brings freedom; but in order that he may understand the truth for himself he must seek and find the truth for himself. The only truth that is of any value to us is that truth that we have gained through our own individual efforts to actually know truth and inwardly realize the pres- ence and power of truth. This being true, all wide-awake and progressive minds will agree that the aim of this book, which is to present practical and effective methods through which anyone may find more and more truth, in- stead of trying to give a final and complete system of thought supposed to contain all the truth, which is impossible—all such minds will agree that this aim is the only aim, in this connection, that can possibly be rational in its process and practical in its application. And it is for such minds that this book is written. We feel, therefore, that every page will be fully appreciated, and that every state- ment will be thoroughly understood.
