Sometimes I notice myself fighting over something – it’s something that is important to me, something that I think is the answer to all of the world’s problems. And the other person, the one I am arguing with, doesn’t see it as the be-all, end-all that I see it as. So I get angry and upset. And I fight with them.
That’s when I have to pull myself back and realize the most important truth that exists right now. The truth that could prevent every single conflict on this planet. The truth that there isn’t just one path to get anywhere and everywhere. There are a hundred billion paths, as many paths as there are sentient beings. And that’s why we don’t have to fight anymore.
A Billion Paths To Get There
Our path isn’t more right than anyone else’s. Our path is just one of the paths. One of the many paths out there. One of the few paths that are privy to us.
We are so blind that we think that ours is the only way to get somewhere. But if you could just look up from your shallow, and narrow-minded way of looking at the world, you would realize that there are a hundred ways of getting there. A billion ways of getting there, and you are just one pawn in this huge chess world.
Thus, every single time you find yourself gritting your teeth because someone is just being so frustrating – they don’t see that your path is the only way, then stop yourself, and realize that that’s a false notion. There are a hundred ways to get there, so stop it now. Stop being so crazy. Let’s come back to the moment. Let’s come back to the now and stop arguing with everyone over everything.
Your path isn’t wrong. My path isn’t right. We are both just doing our own thing.
