Or is the truth for each one of us something different ? Or does the truth change depending on occurrences and time ?
When a witness testifies in court, he will always say exactly the same. The attribute of the truth is its immutability, it is absolute. There is no personal truth.
If a witness changes his "truth" then one will not believe him.
So is it with our mind. Because our mind always wants something else, because it always thinks something else, we should not give credit to it. The truth does not change. Therefore, all what our mind takes up and what it thinks is not the truth.
«There is "mind" and there is also the state of "No-Mind". That is all that there is. The mind is that which keeps you in human bondage and it is the same mind which liberates you when it attains a state of No-Mind. That is all that there is to life and there is to know. There are only these two things to be discerned.»

The truth can not be discussed, it can only be explained.
