Something I began noticing a while ago is that the more Buddhist books and blog posts I read, the more talks I listen to, or people I speak to, the more I notice that nearly every teaching seems to have another teaching somewhere else to contradict it.
For a while, I actually found this a little annoying. How would I ever know what to believe, what path to follow? How do you choose who to listen to? But then I also realized that both sides could be right (or wrong) together, at the same time. They didn’t have to contradict each other, it’s more a matter of finding the space between them, where words are unable to go.
