Absolute Truth by Joab Russo is a book on self-discovery that underlines different beliefs and doctrines, providing a systematic exposition of all there is to know about our existence and realities.
The book is divided into different sections that gradually build to describe the essence of absolute truth. The book explains the principle behind our choices and realities and essential concepts such as God, belief, reality, and creation. Each concept provides the motivation for every choice we make, and our actions are defined by the meanings we attach to them and the absolute truth about them. Knowing and understanding the absolute truth affects and changes everything—which, ultimately, ends up making sense.
The author provides information that helps to understand who and what we are, how we create realities, why we create such realities, and their respective purposes. The section on an essence family—which elaborates on personalities, showing that we belong to a single essence family—is quite insightful. I love the conclusion on the absolute truth regarding choices: we create our own realities, and no external source controls our choices, experiences, or actions.
I love the “Essence Family” chapter and the focus on personalities. The concept of being responsible for one’s reality and choices made is quite revealing. This background knowledge will help to actualize and harness every potential needed to have a fulfilled life. It also makes one see oneself in a new light. The main basis of the book is that there are no absolutes. Nevertheless, I would have loved to read from other sources to further buttress the author’s claims of absolute truth.
The point where we become aware of our essence, which is the premise for the book, if we choose and create all our realities is somewhat unclear. Does this imply those who became victims at quite an early age chose that reality based on beliefs? Moving on, the book was professionally edited, and it has no spelling errors. The book did not have any vulgar words or erotic scenes, which makes it appropriate for children. I assign Absolute Truth a rating of 3 out of 4 stars. In conclusion, I would recommend this book to anyone who is open-minded, curious, and ready to see a new perspective on their entire existence.
