Fabricating certainty

The very essence of the buddha’s way is to develop self-reliance, and to hone our own judgement. How can we be sure we’re right? We often can’t. But that’s no reason to fabricate certainty.

The pursuit of truth has more to do with letting go of certainty than finding it.

– Stephen Schettini
