What is the Truth?

What is the truth? Are the signs I see really there or is it that I put so much mental energy into thinking about one thing that the signs manifest as a result? Are they the cause or effect? I'd like to believe they are real and true but I just don't know.  

For example: if I am on need of an item to start my business and am consciously thinking of this need, then when I go to Walmart and See this item on sale, which hasn't happened previously(this item being on sale). Is this a sign signifing that I should take a risk starting my business, or is it just coincidence.

It happens that when you want to do something, then objects appear in the zone of your appearance and when a person does something then the prospects appear for different projects. In general, doing something better than doing nothing. In hinduism, a passionate person (rajas) is better than the passive and the lazy (tamas).

Our mind snatches away the fragments of truth and in the form of thoughts realizes their but comprehensive truth our mind does not embrace because the divine is known only by the divine consciousness.Therefore, there is a gradation of the mind from the material to the spiritual consciousness.

Hi,

For some things, the truth is relative. Our subjective beliefs influence our perceptions, which define truth for us.

Starting your own business, which I have done, is not an undertaking to be taken lightly. You are either driven to do it with passion or most likely it is not a good idea for you. That is what I think.

John

All of this is is confirmation bias. If you weren't thinking about the thing for your business, would you have notice the item you needed regardless?

Just to be a nice guy I'll leave this: Why "magical thinking" works for some people.

When my attention is directed to something new, that I never thought about before, I see it everywhere.

It is soooo normal! It is also how capitalism works. Get the attention = get the money.
