From “The Life of The Buddha” [BBC Documentary]

Standard

Do not believe in something because you are told to.
Do not believe in something because a holy person said it.
Do not believe in something because you read it from a book.
Follow and practice the teaching without prejudice.
If it brings happiness to you and others and does not
encourage self harm or harm to others then follow it.

Although this was taught by Buddha I believe it is a beautiful principle that can be applied to everything
we learn in life. May you all be happy.
