    Re: Disagreements

    I think it's all just farts in a cold wind.

    Speak the truth, give the evidence, think about what I say or not, exercise compassion, and how can disagreement be anything other than that of being enlightened?

    The rest is all just playin' with the kids.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Disagreement is proof that we're individuals with independent thoughts. It brings advancement to the collective knowledge. I say bring in the disagreements! Let us grow and thrive through intellectual conflict and resolution.

    The problem isn't having the disagreement, its being an ass about it.

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Re: Disagreements

    Disagreeing takes a lot of patience and practise for me. I naturally want to agree with everyone to be liked and to keep things peaceful. I've found when I let myself disagree with someone, I begin to better articulate my opinion. I learn a lot about myself. It also helps to see things from all perspectives. You need light and shade to see well!

    Edit:: the best disagreements I have are ones where everyone leaves with dignity in tact.
