Using teachings of the Buddha to illustrate, Heather explores various dimensions of truthfulness (Sacca). In order to flourish, truth needs a sharp, precise, clear and innocent mind. Such a mind, developed through meditation, helps us to discern the difference between what is actually true and what is a distortion or an overlay of judgement or expectation. As we see the truth of how things are, we can begin to receive what is happening and not be in argument with reality. A commitment to whole-hearted truthfulness fosters understanding, which in turn promotes acceptance and compassion.
