Wise words...

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook the other day. I can't say how many times I have read or heard about something only to try it for myself in order to really experience it. If only we had time to experience it all.

The Buddha replied, “You have a right to be confused. This is a confusing situation. Do not take anything on trust merely because it has passed down through tradition, or because your teachers say it, or because your elders have taught you, or because it’s written in some famous scripture. When you have seen it and experienced it for yourself to be right and true, then you can accept it."
