Philosophy From Milan Kundera

lions

Here is some great philosophy from Milan Kundera author of “The Last May.” It’s interesting where sources of knowledge come from. Milan Kundera is actually an ex-communist.

One point in his philosophy is to ask questions. Be upfront with people so you can get to the core of their motivation.

I have seen too many Men hurt because people believed women on a whim. I have seen too many women hurt because we believed a man on a whim.

I have seen same sexes aim to destroy each other and I know the truth.

Weather we are from the United States, the Church of Rome, Germany, England or France we are meant to be given love and the peace of mind that we all, regardless of income, will have a fair shot at justice.

Justice is hard to achieve when people will lie for money, for fame, for revenge, or even to cover up their previous lies and the pain they’ve invoked on another.

The best thing that any of us can do is to ask questions, seek the truth and believe. We can show our belief in love and good tidings by living the truth we speak and getting to know each other face to face.

I’ve worked with, read up on and studied many different cultures. Some slightly different and some drastically different and I learned that we have to leave room for differences, knowledge and wisdom.

There is one sin that is a reoccurring sin for mankind. It’s the love of money. We should be thankful for it, do good with it but not worship it. So while asking questions, to get clear on things, make sure that you ask God. “God, what do you want me to do?”

Here is a quote from Milan Kundera:

“Anyone who thinks that the Communist regimes of Central Europe are exclusively the work of criminals is overlooking a basic truth: The criminal regimes were made not by criminals but by enthusiasts convinced they had discovered the only road to paradise. They defended that road so valiantly that they were forced to execute many people. Later it became clear that there was no paradise, that the enthusiasts were therefore murderers. ”

What Milan Kundera said is very impactful. Making people only follow one person, or forcing beliefs only brings struggle, pain and death. When God wants life and love for his children. Do unto others as you would have done unto yourself. This is Wisdom.
