      Yo Sri Bobby G,
      Actually, the initial statement..."The truth is...there is no Truth.
      And that's the Truth!" seems to be a semi-typical Sufi device that
      presents both sides of a concept in a way that negates the validity
      of either view. This presents the opportunity to cease further mental
      chattering about the subject, and opens the door to the possibility
      of direct experience of the subject/concept that words, be they ones
      of "Truth" or of "Untruth", can only point to.
      And that may or may not be the Truth:-)
      Peace and blessings,
