Buddha said: "There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting." ...Truth is highly debated in those human practices used for discovering truth: philosophy, religion, and law. These are key disciplines where we invest rigorous effort to separate relative or personal truth, from indelible or universal truth.
In ancient Greece truth was known as Aletheia which can be interpreted as un-concealment, or the revealing or bringing of what was previously hidden into the open. In modern language we might think of this type of truth as disclosure, transparency or the facts. However, if we break the word Aletheia down into its separate components, it provides us with an even more interesting concept of truth ...

Why Astrology and the Tarot are so important to understanding Traditional Knowledge
â€œThe word Kabala signifies traditional knowledge. It thus refers to the Oral Law, as handed down from antiquity; and embraces the occult traditions of all lands and all peoples. Often it is used merely as referring to the esoteric doctrines of the Jews; but in its broader sense it includes also the secret doctrine of other races. This secret doctrine, common to many lands, was jealously guarded from the profane, and was never permitted to pass into writing except in such ambiguous terms as to baffle the uninitiated as to its true purport. â€œIn this sense the sacred books of the world, including the Avesta, the Vedas and the Bible are largely kabalistical; for they set forth traditions that are capable of an inner, or esoteric, interpretation. In fact, there are usually several interpretations possible, each more inner version revealing a deeper truth to those who have advanced along the path far enough to comprehend it.â€�
â€œAnd this seems the proper place to point out that the unwritten kabala, like the written kabala, is set forth in symbolical language, with purposeful blinds and subterfuges to confuse the uninitiated; so that of the few who undoubtedly exist at the present day who have received it, most remain in as much ignorance of its true interpretation as the majority of students do after studying the more accessible written kabala. â€œThis unwritten kabala has been transmitted only through certain secret schools. Those receiving it well merit what is given to them. They are left to their own devices in the matter of interpretation. And because the real keys to its interpretationâ€”astrology and the tarotâ€”have been largely ignored, or distorted, they have floundered sadly in arriving at its meaning. Whether written or unwritten, the kabala is a philosophy correlated to esoteric astrology as exemplified by the tarot; and it can only be comprehended fully by those who perceive the true relation between
astrological energies and their pictured tarot exemplification.â€�
