Living each day much muchier
Perceiving the world is an act of creation.
I like to think I’m right when I share my opinion. My beliefs are founded in research, reason and experience. I tell you what I believe because it’s the best answer I know.
Then again, so you do. Everyone on this planet thinks and believes different things… and they all like to think they’re right too.
So, let’s explore this a little further.
If I’m right, everyone who thinks differently is mistaken, lazy or stupid. Even on a statistical basis that seems unlikely, not to mention downright arrogant and insulting. Maybe I’m right about some things and wrong about others. Maybe everyone’s wrong, all the time.
It seems wise to accept there are more forces at play than we can fully grasp. The universe is big and complex enough to encompass a lot of different experiences, even conflicting ones.
So, if you consider other people’s views and still surmise that you’re right, it means one of three things.
If that’s what it takes to be right every time, is it really worth it?
