Lesson 144 english

Is it better to determine one’s own ideas of right and wrong or follow the crowd?  It is best to determine one’s own idea.  But if the crowd is on your side of the argument, then it is better to follow the crowd.

“You can only learn from a mistake after you admit you’ve made it. As soon as you start blaming other people (or the universe itself), you distance yourself from any possible lesson. But if you courageously stand up and honestly say “This is my mistake and I am responsible” the possibilities for learning will move towards you. Admission of a mistake, even if only privately to yourself, makes learning possible by moving the focus away from blame assignment and towards understanding. Wise people admit their mistakes easily. They know progress accelerates when they do.”

If you are wrong, then you are wrong.

“Wise people learn from their mistakes, Super wise people learn from others mistakes”.

Learning from others mistakes will make you wiser than if you learn from your own mistakes.  So if you are wrong just admit it to yourself so you can at least learn, and not do the mistake again.  So learn from others mistakes.

One thought on “Lesson 144 english

  1. This is an interesting idea, because if things are right and wrong, then they are objectively right and wrong. No one in the world can change them. However, what actually is right and wrong, according to those objective standards, is at the heart of any controversy. In some things, it is best to trust your own judgement, where you know yourself to be impartial. However, to follow the crowd or reject it, simply to justify your actions and not to objectively recognize the truth of morality in that aspect, is simply wrong. Developing a sound moral judgement and moral sense is a difficult, vital, and lifelong pursuit.
