A Case for a dynamic Quest for Enlightenment

I think it is very important that we leave room for a dynamic socio-political consciousness, one where people are allowed to have evolving thoughts. That is, many people are often reluctant to change their stance on something they once believed in because they fear the vitriol that will ensue when people unearth some old statement they made and calls them a fraud for now changing their mind. Even

in something as simple as conversation with a friend, if you really analyze your arguments, you will realize that you are putting a lot more effort on proving that you are right rather than on entertaining the possibility that the other person is right. And there is that ugly moment in the conversation when you realize that the other person is right, but instead of feeling good about a step toward personal enlightenment, you feel shame because this person will probably mock you for being wrong.
