Points of view

We need to test their validity

February 17th 2017
No other failing gives rise to as much disappointment and misfortune to human beings, as the stubborn defence of certain beliefs and points of view, without testing their validity. People persist in thinking they are right, even when all sorts of events in their daily lives prove the opposite. How can they accept such contradictions? It is the events of life that should prove that they are true and not and not their imagination, their tastes or their preferences. I have given you many criteria to enlighten you, to guide you! The most important is this one: before reaching a decision on any matter whatsoever, try to identify what it is in yourself that urges you to go in one direction rather than another. Are your motives honest and disinterested? If not, watch out, because you are exposing yourself to great disillusionment.
