Yesterday I was wondering about our society
and how many of the beliefs that we have, are ours
and not the result of our copying them from
an author, a preacher, a business person, etc.?
The idea of thinking for ourselves, about anything,
has evaporated. Even the most industrious, when confronted
with a conundrum, leaves his or her reasoning power and searches
for answers anywhere but his or her own mind.
When we realize that everything we do is determined by what is in
our mind, this concern may be adequately illuminated.
We wonder why the world is fraught with disagreements and war,
and yet practically all of us negotiate life with nothing more than a
composite of a few UNINSPECTED ideas we have, over the years,
accepted and adopted from others.
And these – direct our every step and influence our every
word and thought.
