What is right from your point of view may be wrong from someone else's point of view.

Everyone sees things through their own glasses (spectacles). The color of the glasses you see the world with, the world seems to you in that color.

We look at things with outer eyes and analyze them with inner eyes. We should not have any colourful glasses on our inner eyes to analyze things correctly.

Whether right or wrong perspectives there is always truth and reality.

Whether something is right or wrong also depends on the circumstances and time. What is right today may be wrong tomorrow. What is right in this situation may be wrong in another situation.

Truth varies with time and circumstances.

One absolute Truth for me has always been I love pistachios from Turkey, Sicily and Iran.

Then it would not be truth, but deception.

Right and wrong are diametrically opposed, and not interchangeable.

Your post seems quite ill-informed. Maybe it’s a language barrier of translation. Situational ethics never works out. And time actually reveals all lies, the truth is still a constant.

From your own admissions, you have missed out on a great many of life’s lessons. Experience is the best teacher. Perhaps this guru persona is not a great fit for you.

My best wishes to you on your path to enlightenment. Just remember it’s the journey, not the destination.

You are right from your point of view.

Well, my English is very bad. I don't know if I can explain all my points correctly or not?


My point of view is that:
No one knows what the truth is in reality. What seemed right to me yesterday, seems wrong to me today and what seemed wrong to me yesterday, seems right to me today.
According to the scale on which we analyze things, the perception of truth be created, when the scale changes, the perception of truth also changes.
The scientific theories which are correct today may be proved wrong after many years by another scientist.

Certain things are open to interpretation - you say potato, I say potatoe - and other things are made right or wrong by the situation, thou shalt not kill unless being chased by a madman with a knife.

Stealing is wrong unless it is to feed your starving family. Breaking into someone's house is wrong unless the house was on fire and they're screaming for help through a smoke-filled window.

Harsh necessity makes many things right that would otherwise be wrong. Prostitution. It is not wrong to walk the streets at night to feed your starving family, only when you live the high life on OnlyFans would you burn in hell burn in eternal damnation.

Change track about situations but what about CS? It's worse than a bunch of kids but it doesn't mean they are a bunch of kids there's just something in this environment that causes people to behave this way. Something to do with never having to look anybody in the eye. I'm sure we'd get on better in person because this is simply a bad environment.

In Buddhist teachings there are two truths....Conventional truth and Ultimate truth.
All that is written here is related to Conventional truth, so it can be dissected, debated and decided upon. We can look at objects and say, "it is this, but not this." We separate things into words, this is how we navigate our way through life. But words are very limited, the mind can become more aware of the world beyond words, labels and descriptions.
The Ultimate view, or truth is one that doesnt have separate things or objects. It's the truth we fail to see almost all of the time. The world of Ultimate truth doesnt have objects or separate things, it's a world of unity and completeness.
It's a world where the phenomena are empty of essence, they are without a part that remains unchanged. The only change that ever exists is within the mind and that is what we perceive. However it's false, we do not realise 'emptiness,' this is why we live mainly in a world of Conventional truth which is not fixed, its fluid, subject to interpretation and opinion. It's a world where we describe and build theories, create
philosophies and religions, but it's not Ultimate truth.
Both of these truths are equal, one truth is not superior to the other, neither are they separate, one is not higher than the other, purer, or on a different level, but they both exist, although only Conventional purely exists in the mind where we separate things due to our senses, created by our thinking and inferred to by our language.

thumbs up Well said bodleing2

Temporary (changing) Truth and Permanent (unchanging) Truth.
Truth is felt on different levels: From the level of the Conscious-Mind to the Deep-Unconscious-Mind. Truth at the level of Conscious-Mind may be variable and different for everyone, but at the level of Deep-Unconscious-Mind the truth is constant and same for all.
According to the level of mind you have reached, you will feel the Truth.angel

Right or wrong, true or false depends on the situation, but even under the control of the situation, some wrong thing should not be done.

At the level of the mind from which a person says something, another person can understand it completely only after reaching to the same level of the mind.
The same thing can have different meanings at different levels of the mind.
At the surface level of the mind people may differ but at the deepest level of the mind all human beings are the same.
