If you think consciously, then you are attached to whatever you are thinking, limited thereby and not free mentally. So, you cannot know the truth and act correctly. Being aware is a conscious state of mind so can lead to delusional thoughts; only a liberated mind knows the certain truth for its expressions in words and deeds. So, what is correct action? Answer: that which liberates the mind. Only truth liberates the mind. It works both ways: correct actions based on truth liberates the mind and the liberated mind expresses itself in truth. So truth is godly and godliness is truth.
When the mind is completely free, the state is total liberation or Moksha. Ones actions are consistent and determines the truth.
They say that cleanliness in next to godliness but truth is in fact godly. I believe in truth for truth is cure-all.
