Everyone Is Right
In our own eyes, we are all right, morally good, justified and acceptable :-). There isn’t any point in arguing; we can only empathise and say, “I see your point.” This doesn’t mean we agree, but taking into account another’s background, we can see how they may have come to their conclusions.
When we start to consider that we may not actually be right, inner conflicts – and therefore possibilities – arise.
Right: from Latin ‘rectus’, rule … makes you think, doesn’t it? We are ruled by the feeling of rightness.
If we consider ourselves ‘right’, by deduction others must be wrong. Beyond thoughts is pure consciousness, which doesn’t consider anything to be right or wrong. Things just are, by cause and effect.
Then, how do we solve problems? We don’t. Solving a problem creates another cause. Once we realise the cause, the effect dissolves.
Trying to solve a problem by making the ‘right’ move will have an effect. Was this ‘right’ move intentional, a cock-up or just a reaction? The game of chess – and life – is played on many levels.
