      1. True to some extent. I have just found in the past few years that most people from any side just don’t listen to reasoned arguments. Maybe it’s here or in my environment. I don’t know but it does worry me. πŸ™‚

        1. I always go into an argument with an open mind. Only when you are prepare to listen, you are prepare to learn. Many times there are many sides to a story. I can always agree to disagree if I don’t like what I have heard but at least, I listen first before jumping the gun.

          1. You are exactly right. I try to listen first. And if the arguments convince me I am ready to change opinion. But lately in any conversation? People just don’t listen. So they don’t learn. Tsss.

          2. Yeeees. I have had that feeling a lot lately.
            Possibly in the wrong country. It’s come to the point I stop arguing. Why waste my time?
            (Maybe that’s why I loved Asia so much in December/January. I felt that there was more… open mind? Need to go back to confirm!) πŸ˜‰

          3. Haha. I think it is because in Asia, we are much too polite to insist on our points and back down when the other party aggressively pursue their views.

          4. You might be right. Politeness struck me as very important in Asia. I liked the widespread custom to use both hands when you hand something over to someone… πŸ™‚ (Just one hand is “rude” or careless, right?) πŸ˜‰

          5. Yes, in Asia, we always receive with both of hands. But nothing wrong receiving with one hand either. Just different countries, different cultures. When in Rome, do as the Romans do.. πŸ™‚

    1. I think wisdom can be imparted but in different sense. People interpret teachings differently and not everyone can absorb 100% of what you are giving out but there is hope where some may interpret your teachings in a better way and make it as their own wisdom and bring it to greater heights.
