according to Buddha

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.

Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.

Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.

Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.

Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.

But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

playing either believing or doubting games seems necessarily troubling…

according to Buddha

In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.

artificial divisions separate nature/culture…no judgement of taste is innocent…

Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.

hid.din…kept out of sight; concealed…will be exhibited, exposed, obvious, opened, outed, seen, shown, uncovered, made visible.

according to Buddha

There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth…not going all the way, and not starting.

i wonder about unintentional acts, omissions, errors…noble truths and noble lies.
