You know when you are with the right person when you don’t feel the need to fill the silence with words.
Silence is separating people when something need to be said and isn’t.
You can say what you have using words that will not attack others. There’s always a way to keep the peace. It’s up to us to make the effort of doing so.
There’s no justification in using truth to hurt someone else. Remember, truth is relative to perception. Each of us have a different view of the truth. Stop expecting to have the only right way to see the truth.
About Serge ‘Mage’ Cote
Why do I write?
I believe in the butterfly effect.
As small my influence may be on the planet, it is still influence. I want to orient it for the better.
I write my book with the idea of bringing something good into this world.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
– Edmund Burke
I want my books to be a good place to be. A place that you visit often and feel good about it.
I want my books to bring good energy so the readers will take action to make this world a better place.
I want my books to guide those who don’t know why they feel so bad about their life.
I want my books to be there after I’ll be gone. I want people to come back to them and use them in a positive way.
“The greatest use of a life is to spend it on something that will outlast it.”
– William James

5 thoughts on “Great Quote by Buddha”
I agree that each individual sees a different aspect of truth.
However if all opposing opinions are truth than truth ceases to relevant.
It is imperative that one has a standard by which to measures all viewpoints (both sides of an issue) in order to distinguish between truth and error.
For me that standard is the Bible.

The apostle Paul asked the question: “Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?” He then quoted from Psalm 44:22, “For your sake we are being put to death all day long; we were considered as sheep to be slaughtered” and concludes: “But in all things, we overwhelmingly conquer through Him (Christ) who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:35-39).”
If you respect Jesus as one who told the truth, then trust what he said: Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” If Jesus was a wise teacher (and not a liar), then He is the indisputable truth. On that same note, if no one comes to the Father except through Him, then why look to Buddha for advice? Much love and peace to you, Mage. I pray you find the Father that waits at your door to know you and love you!
