Today’s Question by the reader : Jasmine

Author: Paulo Coelho

Here’s my question to you – As an author that writes about his belief in Jesus through his stories, tell me how do you believe in no good or bad or no right or wrong, but sees them more as choices.

I do believe in ONE law of ethics, and it happens to be not a Christian, but a Jewish one: don’t do to your neighbour what you don’t want your neighbour to do to you. If everybody would follow this only and simple sentence, the world would be better. (The Christians say: “love your neighbour as you love yourself – but sometimes either we don’t love ourselves, or we try to impose our values to our neighbours).
