Description of the painting by Makaloyus Čiurlionis Truth

This picture is mysterious, but how much food provides for reflection! How much you can think of looking at this canvas. Truth is a capacious concept and truth is not always the final instance for mortals.

As a rule, the truth is hidden from us and we reach the truth only when we ourselves want it. But do we want this? Good question. More often we do not need the truth. It is better to live in the dark and not understand the true state of affairs, it is better to live in the confidence that everything is fine, although in reality everything is not as we would like. It is better… not to know the truth, because the person’s happiness from this is unlikely to come.

The truth is that it will not let us sleep, it will not let us think calmly. But when you acquire the truth, you feel like an absolutely calm person and everything understanding. So how to be? To be in the dark and not accept the truth, or to accept the light of truth and be the black sheep among the gray-black mere mortals.

After all, only bright personalities of the level of Christ are able to possess the truth and carry it to people. But this is another truth – holy. She owns not all and not all she is subject to. Therefore, many come to the conclusion that it is better not to get involved with the truth. It is better to wait and not sin in vain. It is better to become simple than overly truthful and true. This dilemma constantly torments humanity and does not give rest…

Truth is always somewhere nearby, we just sometimes don’t notice it or don’t want to notice it or just pretend that it doesn’t exist at all. We are strange people! But the artist conveyed to us the true sensation of the light of the soul from the possession of truth. He showed us how many truths can flock to the fire of the soul, which we hold in our hands. But the truth is in the power of the spirit, in the power of the soul, in the power of man himself. We just need to live and if we do not comprehend the truth, then at least a little touch with it. If you do not take in yourself, then at least just to understand that she is still there all the same.
