Thoughts Lead To Appreciation


Humankind is more than a passive creation whose actions have been meticulously determined.  Humanity is defined by a variety of parameters, being devoid of a meaningful thought process is not one of such.

THOUGHTS - Self Versus Doctrine

Should one bother to think when one is meant to follow a prescribed mode of existence?  The case is to ascertain whether fulfilling ones roles in the present existence is an I-obey-reluctantly state.

There is an understanding in some quarters that belief is extraneous to self.  “Belief is what I have to put up with to avoid that nasty, scorching apartment in another existence.”  “My opinion is the real me.”  Sometimes one hears “This is my opinion” meaning my belief system forbids a particular action, though that action is pardonable in my view.  Hence, belief fails to refine ones thoughts and uplift ones self-perception.

This article has made me recall a movie about an Arab king whose minister informed that thinking was a treasonable offence.  There is some truth in that in some communities.  Citizens of some cultures are averse to thoughts.  They can not think.  They do not want to think.  They do not know how to think.  To them, the ideal existence lies in non-existence.  They meddle in each others’ affairs and dictate with whom others interact.

A complete stranger can walk up to one and boldly instruct one on how to conduct ones life.  But, that only happens to those who entertain such intrusions.  One is expected to, though.  But is one permitted to think?  No!  Someone else does ones thinking for one and one implements it.  It is similar to the possession of a Siamese brain!THOUGHTS - Self Versus Doctrine
