Ajahn Brahm: The right to believe?

It's reallyyyy worth listening to this guy. He's absolutely brilliant, and has a beautiful humor. What else can one possibly want?

The Right to Believe? - Ajahn Brahm

PS. Wanted to make a new folder with Ajahn Brahm in On the net link, but I guess only moderators can do it? I tried to be organized, Matthew  :)

Thanks for posting that Monica.

He is very funny and talks a lot of sense. Not sure about the chicken & duck story though. I think you can agree to disagree without getting upset or hurting anyone. But the main point about properly prioritizing our values and beliefs was spot on I thought.

Well, that was his whole point. Our ego makes us want to be right and blinds us to the point we're hurting other people. From personla experience, I can tell that it's enough to see my husband get angry over a little thing (and he seeing me doing the same thing) to spoil things between us. Luckily we don't hold grudges for long and it helps :)
