Why do we engage in conversations? I enjoy reasoning with different minds and I love this moment when your mind goes “OOOH!” – I really haven’t thought of it from this point of perspective. But if there isn’t this “OH” and you just can’t relate to what your opponent is saying, the conversation can easily ignite to a debate of who’s is right and who is wrong. You are than trying to converse your opponent because you feel your point of view is the truth.
What is right, what is wrong? An endless discussion but still we feel urged to participate in this hot debate. Why is that so?
“We are always trying to convert people to a belief in our own explanation of The Universe.
We think that the more people there are who believe as we do, the more certain it will be that what we beleive is the Truth.”
I read these lines in a book a close friend had sent me – The Pilgrimage by Paulo Coeloh. It is incredible that The Universe/God has its own ways of answering our questions. I let my intuition, my feelings that arise when I look at a book decide, whether to read it or not. And always did the book’s content provide answers to current and/ or to long-existing questions.
“There is no religion that is capable of bringing all of the stars together, because if this were to happen, the univerese would become a gigantic, empty space and would lose it’s reason for existence.”
We can’t tell people in what to believe, what is righte or wrong. We have to allow every individual to just be themselves. Even if we believe that our message is so urgent, so true and so important, we can’t force it into somebody’s mind and expect the person to believe in it with the same enthusiasm as we do. The Truth has its own way to reveal itself.
“Every star – and every perosn has their own space and their own special characteristics. What appears from down here to be a huge number of bodies that are similar to each other are really a million of different things, spread over a space that is beyond human comprehension.”
Let’s not converse let us simply exchange beliefs, thoughts, ideas, etc. I think that is more fun and less exhausting. Let’s enjoy different perspectives and beliefs, it might help to strengthen your own.
