In the end, views don't belong to anyone, Let's just discuss views
Hi dhamma follower
Don't the above two sentences contradict each other?
I'm interested in how established you are in you views and what is their source?
Are your views fluid and you wish to explore or have they been fixed?
Hi Mr Man,
They don't. Views, as any reality, don't belong to anyone, ok?
There are however, right view and wrong view.
The first sentence was just to say that it is inevitable to try to prove one's view is right if one think it is right. Everyone is doing that here.
If we don't think too much in terms of "my view" or "his view", one can better focus on whether this view is right or wrong. That's it.
The source of my views come from my so far, limited studying of the Tipitaka. Ajhan Sujin's understanding has influenced mine.
i don't have a choice over my views. They are conditioned, as any other sankhara dhamma. It was different 10 years ago. It was different 10 months and 10 days ago. Never really the same. It changes as considering over dhammas occurs again and again, by conditions.
