“Do not believe anything
because it is said by an authority…
…or from an inspired source.
Believe it only if you have explored it
in your own heart
and mind and body
and found it to be true.
Work out your own path, through diligence” (Buddha)
And if you cannot find it it in a direct experience immediately, ask your heart, is there truth somewhere deep down that I cannot yet see? And then dare to be brutally honest when listening for the answer.
