The biggest things I have learned from my experiences are:
1. Everybody is equally a bundle of courage and fears, doubts and insights, strengths and weaknesses, ignorance and intellect, pettinesses and magnanimity, selfishnesses and selflessness....... no matter how each one of us may appear to be.
2.The moment itself - in terms of one's experience of it - is all that is relevant. The dead past is irrelevant and so is the unborn future. The more I live in the moment, the easier life becomes.
3. If my thoughts are nearer the truth then it can withstand the assault of all the counter views - my fears to the contrary are either unfounded or an indication that my thoughts are mere dogmas which I am holding on as the truth.
4. Everybody has their own "truth" and my truth is only relevant for me.
