The Third of the Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings: Freedom of Thought

This is the Third of the Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings of the Order of Interbeing:

Aware of the suffering brought about when we impose our views on others, we are determined not to force others, even our children, by any means whatsoever – such as authority, threat, money, propaganda, or indoctrination – to adopt our views. We are committed to respecting the right of others to be different, to choose what to believe and how to decide. We will, however, learn to help others let go of and transform fanaticism and narrowness through loving speech and compassionate dialogue.
