Let us go beyond intellectualism which is quite prevalent in the world
today even amongst students of Theosophy and the like. When all is said and
done dear ones Truth is not subservient to human concepts.

It was wise indeed to differentiate between relative truth and Absolute
Truth for the former is distinct from the latter. In my many years of
membership of The Theosophical Society and numerous other genuine
organisations similar thereto I have found that there are few who have
really penetrated into the inner heart of Truth. One can argue and define
all one wants but is this really getting one closer to Truth. As far as I
am concerned my interest is in Absolute Truth. But even those who hold an
interest in these types of subjects often say that there is no such thing as
Absolute Truth. Poor deluded souls!

Let me say however that Universal Truth is equivalent to Absolute
Truth. There is no need to make a distinction between these two terms. Also
personal truth is equivalent to relative truth but can be different for
each individual.
