Diametric opposition
    #2526146 - 04/05/04 12:54 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

How do you reconcile diametric opposition?

As I get to know people, I listen to and remember everything they say. These memories get sorted and parsed out until I feel like I understand this person's general system of belief and thoughts. I do this to people I meet in person, as well as people on these boards.

I notice that beliefs are vast and it is inevitable for there to exist conflicts, but sometimes people say and do things so uncharacteristic that it is almost hypocrisy.

My question is what do you do? Normally, I stop taking someone seriously when I suspect that they speak of things they have not fully thought out or if their beliefs are obviously un-uniform.

Should you consider discrepancies as outliers that should be discarded, or what?

so for you peoples actions will show they are doing something "uncharacteristic" than from the way you percieve them, so maybe its not just them. Take things with a grain of salt more and don't be so judgemental, no ones perfect including you

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.

I see your point. I shy away from the word "judgement" because of negative connotations, and this is more of paying attention so someone doesn't pull a fast one.

I think that actions are louder that words too. When someone says something that sounds really nice, but then goes 180 in their actions, which one dictates?

I guess your advice is sound to not be so judgemental!

Things are always changing man, even beliefs.
Everything evolves, and therefore...

Formlessness has no uniform
But of course there could be many different scenarios
And the very nature of a belief, is a personal, subjective thing. Beliefs are just temporary constructs for which to mold reality, and they can be replaced and deleted as necessary for evolution. For we are always learning..
