Questioner: From the perspective of daily living, are our conflicts due to differences of opinions or differences in our thinking?
Dadashri: For all those who have not received the Gnan of Self Realization, all differences are differences of opinions. For those who have self-realization, there is a difference in thinking. Differences in thinking do not cause hurt. A difference in opinion causes major conflicts and discord.
Questioner: Is it better to have a lesser difference of opinion?
Dadashri: People who aim to get along with each other should not have any differences of opinion whatsoever. With such differences of opinions, discord and clashes will result, leading to loss of humility. Differences of opinions results in clashes and separation of inner oneness of minds, which in turn, leads to a miserable relationship and eventually a divorce.
1) When there is difference of opinion, there will be conflict. When there is difference of minds, there will be a divorce. When there is difference from the body, there will be death.
2) Difference of opinion is a clash, and to clash is a 'weakness'.
3) When one says, 'my opinion', it creates a veil. Due to the veils of his opinions, one does not understand the opinions of other people, and so there he keeps on talking ill things only.
