The least plausible basis for action? A finding of right and wrong.
We are isolated and diminished by our beliefs. Let’s say I believe that I am a good man. Straightaway I have a problem. Every time I turn around, I see a bad man.
The chief difficulty with being right is that someone else must be wrong.
Being right is not the answer. Being is.
It helps to abandon notions of good and bad. We don’t really know what is good and what is bad. Former addicts and alcoholics tell me that addiction was the best thing that ever happened to them.
