Yes, that's true, which is why my friends' eyes roll whenever I say it. But it's really more an ultimate conclusion, without preceding premises. Without the premises, as you say, it means nothing.
This conclusion, if you will, is the end result of a syllogism:
Truth is that which is so.
That which is not Truth, is not so.
Therefore, Truth is all there is.
I brought this to the attention of a former co-worker, and he actually summed it up, saying, "What is, is." Ever since then, I've been using that.
I challenge anyone to disprove the syllogism, even now. But no matter what you take from it, what I get from it, after pondering as long as I did, the ultimate conclusion is that, whatever happens, if you're not okay with it, you create your own problem. So, whatever else you do, you may as well become okay with whatever happens, or What Is.
