Buddhists talk about wisdom and compassion. What they consider wisdom is to see and understand reality for yourself, not just believe what you’ve been told. This understanding is deemed true wisdom. True wisdom allows you to keep an open mind, listen to others point of view without bigotry, examine facts even if they are not what you believe, and be objective instead of prejudiced. Believing what you are told is an easy path; the Buddhist path will require patience, flexibility, intelligence, and courage.
Many hold a distorted image of Buddhism. There is the belief it is just a lot of charms and superstition for people with misguided pursuits. Meditation is looked at as a way of learning human levitation or some other confused notion. The truth is; Buddhism is a treasure full of wisdom that can be applied to everyday living. This knowledge can be applied to anyone’s life regardless of preference, belief, or background. These are nine potentially great pieces of their wisdom to benefit your life.Next Page
