Do Converts Become Extreme?
Adopting a view of life has its effects.
Changing one’s view of life has its effects.
Purely viewing life has no effect.
Effect comes later,
when we express this pure view 🙂
If we change to acquire knowledge and better understanding, we grow in empathy.
If we take up a side to disassociate from others, we lack empathy.
We don’t convert.
We remain as we are, and look more deeply.
In doing so, empathy arises.
Empathy means the ability to understand and share the feelings of another; if we have empathy, we can never become extreme.
