There is a lot of FEAR linked to being "wrong" which is an old teaching engrained in our minds.
What if I'm wrong?
I've also been there desperately fighting to be RIGHT, until I realized that this was not needed anymore. I can understand people who have invested a lot in time, effort and money into different things and their beliefs.
For ex. I had this talk with a fb-friend about a spiritual practice that I went through some years ago that did not resonate with me as why I left it and walked away.
This fb-friend wanted me to like one of his pages but I couldn't go through with it due to my own experiences with this particular practice which I told him in an private message.
He immediately wanted to know who made the practice and and also emphasis that I was wrong!
I told him. How can I be wrong when it's my experience? There is no wrong and right in this I simply shared my experience and we ended the talk in agreement to disagree but with respect and kindness.
After another conversation with a dear friend I realized that the notion of being wrong runs much deeper then first seen. So what if I'm wrong what's going to happen?
During the last years I've been changing stance in lot's of things that I thought differently of earlier and I must say I'm very happy that I can do this. Lot's of the turmoil in the world is due to stuck belief system that we need i.e. weapons to defend ourselves or war etc etc.. but we know this is not the case.. yes those where obvious examples.. but you catch my drift..
Well yes it may seem as if it's wrong here and now but later it shown to be perfectly alright. Now there are some things I still think are terribly wrong and that is to harm another human being or being of any sort.. for that matter.. <3
It's not dangerous to change your stances on issues though.. ;)
