Your assumptions are your windows to the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in. Isaac Asimov
When we say my way or the highway, are we saying our way is the only way that exists because we said so? Humility Rules tell us that, unfortunately, when we insist on doing or having everything our way, what usually happens is we just repeat someone else’s mistakes.
The thing is, it’s not hard to get your way since most people are followers, so they most likely will follow suit because of a closed mind or pure ignorance. Thank God, some think that’s too black and white.
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it. Terry Pratchett, Diggers
I believe in following my own dreams, ways, and plans, but I wouldn’t mind a little help if you know a better way. Plus, I am not impressed with people that know it all. That’s the kind of thinking that can be beyond limited and has a history of leaving some of us with a serious learning curb.
In my opinion, the problem with closed-minded people is their mouth is always open, so they are unaware of the fact that a closed mind, is a dying mind? The antidote is simply just closing all the doors that lead to shutting down the learning process.
There is no place in the Universe that I know of that would endorse a dormant mind. Not only that, a closed mind doesn’t allow thoughts, it only consumes problems. So try keeping your mind open to possibilities and your mouth closed on matters that you don’t know about.
All of us need mentors to teach us how to think, not what to think. Look at it this way, We cannot plant seeds with a closed fist. Plus, the mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.
When leaning to our own understandings we often find ourselves frustrated, that’s because it’s a sign of acting too independently. No man is an island. The more we try it do it our way, the tighter the door will stay closed. Shutting off any hopes of renewal.
There has to remain some type of freedom for all to live, to think, and to worship; no books or avenues should be closed. The Human Mind is a terrible thing to waste. So, whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right. Henry Ford
In the meantime; “Just Don’t
Just don’t learn, experience.
Just don’t read, absorb.
Just don’t change, transform.
Just don’t relate, advocate.
Just don’t promise, prove.
Just don’t criticize, encourage.
Just don’t think, ponder.
Just don’t take, give.
Just don’t see, feel.
Just don’t dream, do.
Just don’t hear, listen.
Just don’t tell, show.
Just don’t exist, live.
It’s Something to Think About!
Jesus is Lord!
