The Power of Critical Thinking …


ConfusedSome powerful thoughts of late, spurred by many blog posts, discussions, and some reflection …

You do not know everything …

 You may know many things to some degree and a few things quite well, but you are not omniscient … which should be strangely comforting to you.  

Knowing everything would be really cool, if it were possible.   Not knowing everything is not so bad, because when you admit this, you now can ask others for help.

After all, the idea of having to know everything is such a burden, isn’t it?

 

Everything you know is not true …

Whether we are talking about what we have experienced, what we see, or what we remember, one thing appears clear.   We do not know the Truth … we know our perceptions, which are subject to our faulty cognition’s  memories, and logical lapses.

We think, see, and remember not what is  or was, but what we imagine, desire, hope, or fear is or was.   Poor grammar, but you get the point.

 

Other people know some things …

Possibly the most positive statement in this post.

Recent discussion around the value of consulting others come to mind.   This means that you do not have to engage life all by yourself.   Help others and let others help you.

We say we find counseling, mentoring, coaching, and good old friendly advice to be beneficial.  Let’s not let our own egos get in the way of proving this.

Continuing to reflect on how messages just bubble up out of myriad sources in the Heartland ….
