This was posted in a discussion group I belong to and caused a lot of confusion. Do you mean these are too deep for humans to understand (consume)? Or that they are untrue?
Several seem contrary to Buddhism and/or each other. Can you provide some context?
Thank for question. This is a list of false claims due to counter beliefs and a variety of exceptions to refute the belief. Trust this is helpful.
I find this list problematic. Some of the items (e.e., #1, 2, 6, 27, 28 among others) are indeed truly toxic. Others (e.g., #12, 13, 15) are reflections or hints at ultimate truth that are perhaps unhelpful for beginners. Many of the items call for a nuanced interpretation and some context (e.g., #8, 9, 23).
Thanks Christopher, when you mentioned the unconditional-love meme it gave me a reason to reflect. Perhaps, this belief is poorly understood? I think we can love and be compassionate when we have done an unskilful action with an unskilful intention but this does not mean we excuse what we have done. I like the formulas: ‘acknowledge, forgive, learn’ and, ‘recognition, no blame, change’. I wonder if we are capable of love and goodwill without being complacent about the disgusting things that happen and, do our best to remedy injustice and needless suffering? This would be a manifestation of unconditional or unstoppable love IMO.
