Ego, Fear, I am glad to be Wrong, Forgive thy Ignorance

We need to look at this article from a perspective of evolution of soul and society. We have come a long way from stone age , have accelerated in the 20th century and are evolving at a faster pace.. knowing our-self and being part of the evolution helps us stay relevant, when we are relevant/”part of the evolving universe” we are happy and joyful.

When we disagree think of it from other person's perspective you are disagreeing with them.
ego noun a person's sense of self-esteem or self-importance. Sometimes we wanted to be accepted right when we are not. Why we want to do that , won’t we be better off by knowing to be what is right and not do those errors again? If we take action due to ego when we are not sure or right we will end up on the wrong side.

a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements. It is not about being respected .. it about being right or wrong. Respect does not come into play when we are wrong. We should always focus on if we are right, if we are right people will agree with us.

fear noun an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. This is almost a flip side of ego where a person wants to prove their worth. Here a person is always like , what wrong i have done , i could be wrong and they are not able to take action/karma. Not able to take an action is almost similar to taking a wrong action when looked at the perspective of life.

I am glad to be wrong: as i am a learner and am learning new things with every interaction we can be better and more complete human being. this helps in evolution of soul and brings happiness.

Defending or Clarifying: When in conversation are we defending or clarifying? Clarifying is trying to explain why the thoughts and the intent, sometimes clarification is enough to help people understand and avoid negativity. 

Forgive thy ignorance:
Let people go; who doesn’t want to be part of the evolution or are not open and willing to listen others opinion. They have in some ways decided not to grow/evolve. It is their wish and desire. We cannot change this person , this person needs to decide when they want to be open and be part of the flow of the universe.

"I am a very nice person": Nice does not say that a person is logically right or wrong. It only expresses a feeling which a person has over logic. We have to be on the right side in all the conversation or things we do, if we don't know we should learn with every interaction and opportunity we get.

"Assumed opposite is true": Sometimes it is other person's perception (no logic or not able to have a conversation). If it is not black then it is white. Some people has a tendency to assume that if there is a certain thing then they conclude as a fact that the opposite will be true as well. In real life if it is not black then it could be red , white , yellow or any other color and it is possible that it can be white as well. For some they think if it is not black then it is white. I just took a very obvious example. In real life thing can be very gray :-)

We are a part of evolving Universe, We want to be part of it for happiness.
