Just One

One person's view, namely yours when the discussion is personal to you, is just that, one view. One person's experience is not everyone's experience. One person's view is not everyone's view. So no one should assume their view is better or right. It's just different.

Never criticize someone's different view solely on the basis of your view. They have the right to their view as much as you have to yours. We argue for the freedom to hold our own view and express that view. We can't argue that doesn't apply to everyone too. It does, and we should always be cognizant of that right and respectful of their view.

The point is that we should always be willing to stand and listen to the diversity of views while holding our own, and even expressing it, and maybe learn more about ourselves, others and the world. Our view isn't gospel and doesn't fit everyone, for they may think the same about their view and you.

Does a Taoist

If a Taoist is asked to raise one hand and put the other hand on the Bible, and then say, "I do.", when they're asked to swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, do they have actually tell the truth since they don't believe in or follow the teachings of the Bible? Yeah, a rhetorical question, is the answer really rhetorical?

The Truth

An interesting thing about the truth, if you forget it or lie about it, it will always come back to bite you. And it will always haunt you until you face it and admit it.

If you're in a group discussion, if you can't speak in a manner to engage everyone in the room, then don't speak to engage anyone in the room. Impressing people with your arrogance only impresses them not to listen.

A Fool

Do not argue with a fool, for they know not that they are a fool and will, in the face of the obvious, always insist they are anything other than a fool.
